Using the concepts in this book: Rarely have I experienced the thoughtful silence that falls over a group when using the Immunity Diagnostic in training and development sessions. As participants consider the conflict between what they claim to believe in and what they actually do many 'ah ha' moments occur. Four seemingly straightforward questions cut straight to the heart of the variance in out current level of thinking. The diagnostic allows us to identify the 'competing commitment' - or why we behave in ways that undermine what we say we want to achieve. Having identified the competing commitment it's a short step to exposing the assumption we make about how the world works, an assumption which may be self limiting. The book also offers a sound method for observing, moving beyond assumptions and testing new thinking and behaviours.
Links to personal development: There is a remarkable similarity between the material presented here and the coaching concepts of identifying limiting beliefs and reframing them. Participants using the diagnostic have commented that this feels like self coaching. Even more surprising is how closely related to Byron Katie's thework (as described in the book Loving What Is) this material is. Although based in different fields both systems ask us to examine our thinking and how differently we might behave if we question the assumptions behind our thoughts.
An enlightening yet practical take on leadership, potentially life changing when applied with personal honesty.
The whole concept is great - that we can only really change our organisations if we are prepared to step up and change ourselves first.
And the book then gives really practical advice on how to do that.
Simply loved it.
