  1. LEADERSHIP, RESONANCE, and THE PURPOSE OF LIFE Jim Clawson and Doug Newburg University of Virginia

  2. FLOW • Time warps (slow or fast) • Lose sense of self • Intense focus • Perform at highest level • Seems effortless (flow) • Internally satisfying • Regain larger sense of self Adapted from FLOW by Mihalyi Csikszentmihalyi,

  5. DREAMS • Natural • Given • Discovered or Built

  6. DREAMS Activities Feelings • NOT goals or false dreams • Resonance producing activities • Feelings that come at the peak

  7. All people dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible. --T. E. Lawrence

  8. Not much happens without a dream. And for something great to happen, there must be a great dream. Behind every great achievement is a dreamer of great dreams. Much more than a dreamer is required to bring it to reality; but the dream must be there first. Robert Greenleaf Servant Leadership, P. 16

  9. WORLD CLASS PERFORMANCE N G D/B Dream Preparation Doug Newburg, UVA

  10. Preparation People ask me, “How do you play so well?” I practiced, intense “shedding.” If you’re willing to put in the time, you can do it to a certain level. Maybe I have a special talent that is intangible, but if you are willing to put in the time, you can really get it together.” Bruce Hornsby

  12. Freedoms and Responsibilities Freedom is born of self-discipline. No individual, no nation, can achieve or maintain liberty without self-control. The undisciplined man is a slave to his own weaknesses. Alan Valentine

  17. Obstacles Whether an opportunity for action exists or not, and whether it is a daunting obstacle or a stimulating challenge, depends more on the mental preparation of the person confronting it than on objective material conditions. Mihalyi Csikszentmihalyi, The Evolving Self, p. 245

  19. Revisiting the Dream When in the beginning of years, God mixed in man the raptures and the tears, And scattered thru his brain the starry stuff, He said, “Behold! Yet this is not enough, For I must test his spirit to make sure, that he can dare the vision and endure. Edwin Markham

  21. Resonance …we still had a long way to go. Like ants getting over an enormous obstacle we climbed up without appearing to make any progress. The slope was very steep. . . The air was luminous, and the light was tinged with the most delicate blue. On the other side of the couloir, ridges of bare ice refracted the light like prisms and sparkled with rainbow hues. The weather was still set fine--not a single cloud--and the air was dry. I felt in splendid form and as if, somehow, I had found a perfect balance within myself--was this, I wondered, the essence of happiness. Maurice Herzog, Annapurna, p. 166

  22. Robert Ballard on Success “Ballard’s 30-year career as an explorer has taught him to see his work as a circular process -- one that he compares with the stages that define the epic journey of the archetypal hero: dream, prepare, assemble a team, go forth and lead, overcome obstacles, find truth, share new knowledge. They are, Ballard suggest, the same stages that any businessperson need to traverse in order to take a project from original conception to final realization.” Fast Company, September, 1998, p. 161.

  23. PURPOSE OF LIFE • Find Your Resonance • Invest in Your Resonance • Enjoy Your Resonance • Help Others Find Their Resonance

  24. Amazing grace, how sweet thy sound That saved a wretch like me I once was lost, but now am found. Was blind but now I see. An American Hymn
