The Mita Way leads change by harnessing talents, and linking differences for novel upshots. Innovation and IQ heists go hand-in-hand. Reach from where you stand to a higher IQ, for instance, and you’ll likely ride the bus while pushing it at the same time.
Mita shifts IQ from fixed to fluid in ways that advance an entire workplace.
5-Way Test to Genius
The 5 – way Mita test equips you to transform tired routines with the zest of a curious child. Open new doors to genius by sparking workplace adventures that yield legacy-level rewards. How so?
Mental makeovers transform stress into triumphs through What if … kinds of questions, and brain-powered improvements.
1. What can be improved?
Name one thing that holds you back from becoming the trend setter you’d like others to see in you. Not that change comes easily at first – especially if you work with naysayers or cynics. Or maybe the purse strings tighten so that funding disappears as fast as donuts in a Monday morning staff meeting.
First, identify the culprit that cripples your talent, and the mind begins to blaze trails typically reserved for the curious.
2. How will you target visible results?
Envision new outcomes rather than criticize past performances. That simple act of setting a goal for solutions extends its magic by unleashing serotonin into any workplace. And wherever this molecule-of well-being thrives, people find cause to celebrate the wonder of workplace wins.
See innovation as more than a distant dream and you’re at Mita’s third step to genius – where you visualize novel outcomes.
3. What exactly do you expect?
Do you expect to inspire a new client, sketch a progressive idea, rebuild a broken prototype, or support a newbie’s new technology? Act on sketched specifics to literally reshape your brain chemically and electrically for higher intelligence.
Even simple competitions, can alter brainwaves up or down when you sketch what to expect.
Seize opportunities beyond that stuck-in-the-mire cortisol world – by planning mind-bending ventures others can visualize. Check out TED expert, Patti Dobrowski who guides people to draw their vision into reality.
Sketch parts exactly as you expect them to materialize, and invite others to help select colors, shapes, textures, and tools embedded in your innovative initiative. What the brain visualizes – it begins to create.
4. What intelligences will move you forward?
Engage multiple intelligences to unleash creative brainpower that thrives on and sustains workplace novelty. Each intelligence used in any day raises its effectiveness for use on the following day. Not a bad return when you think about it.
5. Where to from here?
Capitalize on the brain’s ability to change itself wherever you stand at the moment. Few disagree that wherever worker engagement rises, costs, absenteeism, turnover, theft, accidents, and defects fall.
Why not launch a neuroscience of celebration to propel your workplace from last year’s challenges into brainpowered solutions?
