This is the best video I have watch in a long time. This is how all leaders should be striving to lead. It wont take you long to realise that I am a big fan of Vishen Lakhiani and his leadership ideas… they fit with Agile so well.
In 2009 Vishen Lakhiani was asked to speak at Engage Today in Calgary along with such luminaries as Sir Richard Branson, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Stephen Covey, Nobel Prize Winner F.W De Klerk, Tony Hsieh, the founder of
Zappos.com and world-famous artist Wyland.
This speech was voted as one of the top 3 speeches of the entire event (along with Tony Hsieh and motivational speaker Sean Stephenson).
Vishen talks about Flow: The Ultimate State of Human Existence. He then shared 10 tips on how to master this state and how to bring it to teams, families, and groups you lead.
The video is just 39 mins. The last 13 mins are just Q&A with the audience (with a lot of jokes in between)
This isn’t what you’d learn about in MBA school. Vishen confesses he has no business training (his degree is in Computer Science). But either way, Mindvalley is growing rapidly and averaging 80% growth year to year every year for the last FIVE years straight. And this steller growth has been done without any outside investment, funded by just $250 Vishen used to hire his first website designer in 2003.
