Flow Trigger #14 – Sense Of Control

Written by Stuart Haden on July 27, 2016

A Sense Of Control represents our 7th Social trigger. Groups need to be given a certain amount of freedom to excel. Autonomy and independence that respects competence creates flow.

Choose your challenges and skills development. A degree of control over the goals so that our sense of purpose remains strong. Make sure that destiny is in your own hands, even thought you have to embrace the uncertainty that will undoubtedly come you way.

If the group feel out of control then it has to be reigned back in.  Do team members feel like they can make a difference? Make it happen. Coaching can of course be a great way to create a sense of control whilst maintaining a framework for all.
