Strategy, Leadership and the Soul-A Skype session by Jennifer Sertl

Jennifer Sertl (Founder & President, Agility, 3R, New York, USA) gave an enriching session on "Becoming a True Global Leader Through Transleadership" Her 3R philosophy for Organisation growth was explained and how it helps in becoming a global transleader. 3R Stands for Resilience, Responsiveness and Reflection.

Here are two interesting questions she was asked, and her answers:-

I loved the two questions that the students asked: 
1) How do you create time for open space?
My answer was that in order to create a design around open space you have to reverse engineer your time. Imagine that you have 200 watts of brilliance to deploy and determine how much are you going to input, strategy, relationships building, execution and design in a 20 watts for "presence"-designing it like an assignment, client meeting, team meeting will ensure you have a mental buffer. It does not have to be "meditation" it can be writing in a journal. The bottom line is there should be an "intent" to sit still so that ideas and insights have a place to land.

2) (Relative to responsiveness)- You mention in "20 Characteristics of Transleadership" to create the future yet in our class you just said to be present to your immediate environment - that sounds like a paradox. How to do this?
My answer was that most people are not paying attention and are not introspective. So the very act of paying attention allows you to see signs in the macro that are much more accurate. As a result you will have much more mental lead time to observe, scan and act. The macro will anticipate that you are "doing something" but the truth is - you are paying attention and therefore, stepping forward with a higher degree of accuracy and wise steps vs. intelligent steps.

The workshop was concluded with a Vipassana Meditation session.
