Notes From ICF Conversation

Posted by on Feb 17, 2011 in Leadership, Legacy, Life | No Comments

I had the pleasure of speaking with the Los Angeles chapter of the International Coach Federation last night. We had an amazing group of minds gathered, and here are a few of the notes from our World Cafe discussion.

Some background if you weren’t there: Legacy, People, and Meaning are the three core values of the emerging mentality — the essence of what I call The Mosaic Mind.

Click the thumbnails to see pictures of the noteboards. I also listed a few of my favorite insights from each category.

Thanks to all the participants for their contributions!

NOTES ON “LEGACY”

  • Acknowledge that every moment/decision matters–cumulative
  • Global perspectives & expanded, long-term worldview
  • Call on heroes to stand up and lead
  • Create gentle transitions from Old Island to New Island
  • Sustainable culture shift that lasts long after current leader is gone

NOTES ON “PEOPLE”

  • Biz full of Linchpins… all parts matter to the working of the whole
  • Highlight different talents as positive, not competition
  • Be the best FOR the world, not IN the world
  • Be the voice of change
  • Google model: time on the job to work on what excites you

NOTES ON “MEANING”

  • Storytelling — through whatever medium works
  • Create community culture
  • Doing well by doing good
  • Put action over words
  • Create space to talk from your gut
