Leadership & Responsibility – Team Management Evolves
Dr. Christopher Avery joins us at CBJ to discuss Leadership and the Responsibility Process. When something goes wrong, large or small (for example, lost keys or a lost retirement account), The Responsibility Process kicks in. The mind works hard to Lay Blame as a reason for the problem.
Ed Note: This is a repeat of earlier publication that received considerable attention. I’m repeating this as I am about to diminish publications to once a week [Thursdays at 4 AM EST] for a sabbatical leave as I reconsider my time and efforts to continue our mission here to make a difference. I will republish episodes until I can figure out a way to pay for my team, my publishing costs and my time. Our next CBJ episode will publish next Thursday, next week, at the appointed 4 AM Eastern Standard Time, USA. CBJ is doing well in 111 countries, still on New and Noteworthy at iTunes, but without support is becoming admittedly less tenable.
I have come to realize that Corporate Sponsors are focused, as one might expect, on BtoB: business to business efforts, and here my main focus is public education to democratize mind science recovery – BtoC: business to customer. Understood, – so next step?
Sponsor Request: I do need sponsors from both public and interested professional individuals or groups to continue my several layers of reportage efforts, and I’m working to set up a community Patreon account [under construction, with no sponsorship tiers yet, to help with our CoreBrain Journal Mission, CoreBrain Academy, and YouTube missions – through our new Patreon account – https://patreon.com/corebrain.
Take a look and see if you can pitch in to keep these important insights moving mind science forward – I’ll notify you if you first sign up here to keep you posted: http://corebrainjournal.com/adhd101 I’m working to create special benefits for those who do join our forward-thinking community at CoreBrain – more soon, over at the Patreon link likely this weekend, please bookmark it.
Avery on Working Beyond Blame
If you accept blame as a sufficient reason, then you will act on that blame. If you don’t accept it, then your mind offers you an excuse (Justify) – and so on. Thus, taking personal responsibility is a step-wise process of refusing to act on a series of irresponsible thoughts that your mind offers up.
Responsibility/irresponsibility does not delineate a character trait/flaw. It’s a mental process operating identically in everyone. The process can be observed, learned, taught, studied, developed, modeled, and practiced. Any willing individual, team, or organization can practice responsibility at ever higher levels. The Responsibility Process is most useful when self-applied. It backfires when used to Lay Blame on others.
