The “MiKompass” is a simple method of using emotional awareness to manage yourself and your team with intention.
No technology is required. Building on the work of Professor Mihayli Csikzsentmihayli (AKA Mike C.), the idea is simple the way you feel about work is an important data point in constructing and meaningful work portfolio. It can help you have a conversation around and construct an emotional portfolio that fits your life stage needs, through growth and life and work transitions.
For example: Parents of newborns may seek more work that “fits” in the “Control” category – while another client and parent of elementary students “Bored” with the domestic routine may seek more “Arousal” activities in their work life.
The “MiKompass” exercise framework helps individuals and teams communicate their emotional values and understanding – in order to connect with and manage others.
Can we run as a lunch time series – full or half day event.
This module takes participants through each of the 8 emotions. Participants discuss their “default” feelings. How each emotion is characterized and review activities in which they felt each of the emotions and how those emotions may generally emerge through an entire growth cycle. Next, we discuss how many people infer personality based on emotions, rather than the more rational and ultimately more accurate ways. Ending in a mini-hack, where participants ideate and plan ways to get to know their team. The homework is to test out their prototype strategies and report on a shared site.
