COVID Life has landed and brought with it an unprecedented level of uncertainty and disruption in how we work and live.
We already had a workforce that was feeling burnt out, overwhelmed and humanly disconnected, and then mother nature stepped in. She provided a forced moment of inflection, opening our eyes to how things could be different, and leaving many of us questioning “where to from here?”
All of the evidence suggests that our unconscious adaptation to enable the quickest path to productivity and ultimately success has significantly impacted our mental health, our happiness and our potential.
The biggest opportunity we have at this unprecedented moment in time is to bring intention to the forefront of how we adapt so that we can move from a mindset of surviving to thriving.
It’s not about speeding up and squeezing more into an already full day (or brain); it’s actually about slowing down, creating the space to think, and bring intention and meaning to the forefront of how you make decisions.
When I couldn’t find anyone teaching a concept like this, I went out and created it.
Curious about your IAQ score?Why not take our FREE IAQ Asessment
IAQ® is designed to develop self-sufficient perpetual learners who can reinvent themselves time and again off a foundation of meaning and knowledge of what makes them happy. You do this through the amplification of skills in the outer circle of our IAQ® model:
Self-Accountability is about learning how to focus on what you can control, not what you can’t. It’s about taking control of your mindset and behaviour in order to shape that 40% of your happiness that is within your sphere of influence.
Human Connection is about exploring how opportunity, mental wellbeing and happiness are amplified when we are more humanly connected.
Experimentation is about learning to get comfortable with trying new things that feel uncomfortable and even impossible. We learn and grow through experimentation, even if the experiments don’t work out as intended.
Reflection is about how, if we don’t take the time to reflect and ask ourselves what worked, what didn’t and what we’re going to do differently next time, do we adapt for the better?
The benefits of turning up the dial on your IAQ® can not only be profound but life-changing. Participants who have invested with me to amplify their IAQ® have shared that committing to this practice:
+ provides a compass to effectively navigate the complexity and uncertainty of exponential change
+ helps unlock potential they didn’t realise they had, enhancing creativity and innovation
+ enables deeper human connection and amplifies relationships
+ provides a feeling of empowerment and control over one’s life
+ enables greater fulfilment in the everyday
+ improves mental wellbeing and reduces feelings of anxiety
+ activates a mindset that challenges one to look at the world through a different lens
