Those who can't manage themselves can't be expected to manage anything else either.

Most leaders already know that amazing feeling of being in the zone, or in flow. What many leaders don’t know is how to generate that feeling more often and help others do the same.

The concept of flow was first studied by University of Chicago psychology professor, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi over forty years ago. Flow is a state of high cognition where we are present and intentionally focused. A 2013 study by McKinsey & Company found that executives who can increase the amount of time they spend in flow by 15 to 20 percent double their productivity. Clearly, then, being in flow is great for the bottom line, but how do we get there more often?

As most parents have learned, late-night conversation around the campfire can open communication lines. Consider those romantic strolls with your first love when you shared your deepest secrets and highest hopes for the future? Or how about those laps around the gym or through the hallways at school with your best friend, sharing what happened on the weekend?

Likewise, leaders have learned that walking loosens the tongue of their team members. Walking and talking go together like leadership and strategy.  How so?

Embracing authenticity is a new paradigm for corporate culture. Authenticity hasn’t been a focus for organizations. Most leaders haven’t known that this is the gateway to unleashing the true power of their organization.
