Empathinko has resourced a multi-dimensional set of tools to be used by our clients to flourish in a leadership setting. The personal dimensions we survey are personality colors, signature character strengths, and PERMAH wellbeing indicators.
The Personality Colors survey measuresyour reactive personality behaviors and your default preferences. This is the essence of what we call “the way you wound up being.” Understanding the way you wound up being, helps you identify the path to transformation and the behaviors needed to improve balance and effectiveness at work and in life.
The Signature Character Strengths are the positive parts of your personality that impact how you think, feel, and behave. Scientists have identified 24 character strengths. Some examples of strengths are bravery, creativity, honesty, humor, and social intelligence.Character strengths are different than your other personal strengths, such as your unique skills, talents, interests, and resources, because they reflect the “real” you—who you are at your core. These strengths are the key to you being your best self.
The PERMAH wellbeing survey measures our ability to feel good and function energetically physically, mentally, and socially.Thriving individuals are those who can consistently maintain a high level of wellbeing, even as they navigate the highs and lows of life. As workplaces have become more diverse, technically connected, fast-paced, and sophisticated, the ability of workers to thrive as they go about their jobs has become a growing topic of conversations and concern in many boardrooms and at leadership tables. (Dr. Peggy Kern Melbourne University)
When the surveys are combined, we gather a multi-dimensional view into behavioral preferences, lifelong habitual strengths, and physical, mental, and social wellbeing indicators. This multi-dimensional unique and personal view assists the executive coaches at Empathinko to deliver the most powerful and effective coaching to their clients.
EXECUTIVE COACHING FROM THE FUTURE
We combine the results of the multi-dimensional view of you with our exclusive intellectual property – (ECFTF) “Executive Coaching From The Future” program structure illustrated in the diagram below. This program is the most effective coaching and visualization tool we know of for creating desired futures and interventions in complex social situations. (See below)
Our ECFTF is an exclusive IP developed by Empathinko.
The first phase PERCEIVING AND FORECASTING has 21 steps in which you stand out in a fulfilled desired future 5-10 years from now having achieved success in any area of life crucial to you and work back from that fulfilled desired future to this day. This standing in the future process is similar to but not The Merlin Principle. We work through a very comprehensive list of future based questions to arrive at a forecast which has some probability of success. We know from our past work in future based projects. The beautiful thing about the future is that there are no facts about the future. ~ Gorbis
The second phase ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION has 7 steps in which you critically analyze the fulfilled desired future, question many of your unexamined beliefs, identify and inspect the signals and drivers of change and investigate options to take actions which would move the possibility of your fulfilled desire forward. You reveal unexpected opportunities and draw out consequences.
The third phase COLLABORATION has 7 steps in which you examine the list of your impacted stakeholders in this area of your life that you desire a future of fulfillment and discuss their critical issues and possible concerns with the future you are planning on causing and investigate ways of contributing or satisfying their important questions or concerns. A relationship map of stakeholders and their classifications get built by you in this stage. You align new audiences and other people into your possible stakeholder list.
In the fourth phase, SCENARIO PLANNING has 3 steps which is structured into the dynamic stages of past, present, and future. In which you create a history of the past which is honored, but not with attachment, you look at the present with the signals and drivers of change, and then investigate the options for the future, based on the logic of precedent, but not attached to the way things are or were. You envision alternative futures with some wild variations history demonstrates feasible. You then headline that future.
In the fifth phase, GAMING THE FUTURE has 3 steps in which you create a structured dynamic online game. It has all of the characteristics of a game. It has a beginning, an end, players, team, a scoring system, one thing is more important than anything else to win the game, a scoreboard, rules, a name, actions to take to play the game, and metrics to measure the success of the activities. Most importantly, to assist players in winning, they need a coach!
