Agile Physics and the Math of Flow w Troy Magennis



(If you would prefer an audio-only version of this interview you can find it here.)

This special video podcast features Jim Benson who is back to talk about the Five Lenses of Humane Management.  When human beings work together they form a system. That system runs according to the culture created by the people who are gathering together and collaborating. That culture may be designed with intent or it may happen organically, it may support the people working together in the system or it may work against them and the system.  The Five Lenses offer a way of examining the system and the culture it creates to understand the ways in which it is fostering an environment that allows the people in the system to rise up together and thrive in a collaborative way. They will also help you see when and how the opposite is happening. 

The Five Lenses of Humane Management are:
    1.    Communications
    2.    Relationships
    3.    Respect
    4.    Flow
    5.    Continuous Improvement

I asked Jim to join me for this podcast because I’ve been studying the lenses and incorporating them into my work for about a year now. They have had a deep impact on me, the way I engage with teams, and the way I show up to collaborate with others. If you are interested in understanding how and why the groups you are working with are high-performing (or perhaps the opposite), you will find valuable insights in this interview.
