Heroes: Habits of Mind/Habits of Heart Part 8
July 21, 2016
Hosted by Gwendolyn D. Galsworth, Ph.D.
Where do you land on this question.Do heroes just happen in the case of rare individuals or can we take steps to groom the hero’s mindset in all of us? Which one holds the truth for you? And what is the impact of that? This week on visual workplace radio, Gwendolyn Galsworth, your host and visual expert, shares her response on this in the eighth and final show in her Hero Within series. Along the way, she draws sharp parallels between heroes in the workplace—and the habits of management, habits of mind, and habits of heart. Here’s another set of questions? Why do the sharks at your city’s aquarium not eat every other fish in that pool? And why don’t elephants break free and run away when they are tied in place by a rope so tiny that even grandma could tear off? The answers to all these questions have a great deal to do with the understanding companies need to enable every employee to become a hero at work—and how visuality can help. Tune in tolearn more. Let the workplace speak.
