Sometimes the best solution to a problem is the complete opposite of what is currently being done. At the very least, looking at the situation from a completely different perspective results in new vision.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking we used when we created them.”- ALBERT EINSTEIN
If you believe that you can lead from anywhere . . .
. . . If you believe that great leaders don’t just solve problems, they add energy to the equation and create flow . . .
. . . You may be ready for Experience Physics
REVERSE ENGINEER YOUR IDEAL FUTURE OF LEADERSHIP.
“Science literacy is the artery through which the solutions of tomorrow's problems flow.”- NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON
Experience + Physics?
Top Experience Businesses who seek to stage new-to-the-world customer and employee experiences, require an entirely new leadership science–not simply a minor refresh of traditional leadership skills.
a science that deals with matter and energy and their interactions. It also seeks to explain how the universe works.
When you see leadership as mainly problem-solving, you live in the negative world of resistance.
When you see leadership as mainly creating energy, you live in the positive world of experience.
Experience Physics can be applied to organizational culture, organizational change and to meaningful leadership connections.
Four physics laws that can help any Experience organization.
Vectors | Power of the Opposite | Ohm’s Law | Capacitors
“We build too many walls and not enough bridges.”– ISAAC NEWTON
E (Experience Energy) =
The equation is simple; take a standard management discipline (sustaining force) and intersect it with an Experience discipline (elevating force). The resulting transformation is, dare we say, magical.
POWER OF THE OPPOSITE
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Step one: start with a conventional wisdom. Step two: do the opposite.
Instead of dwelling mainly on the resistance, or problem aspect in Ohm’s law, we put more focus on increasing the Voltage. In fact, that’s exactly what a capacitor does; adds energy and life to an individual and an organization.
Leaders who become ‘capacitors’ can positively affect organizational change.
At Starizon, we employ four types of capacitors:

AN EXPERIENCE EXPOSURE
See the Future of leadership differently.
At any given moment, anyone can be a leader. You don’t necessarily need to be a Manager or a Vice-President. The best leaders engage us, challenge us, inspire us. In short, every time you add positive energy to an event or a process or a person, you’re being a leader. Because ‘Leader’ is not a title. It’s an ability.
The Expected questions:
What? You don’t teach Six Sigma? Waterfall? Agile?
You don’t seriously expect to teach leaders Physics, do you?
Why do you talk more about meaning than you do about managing?
Are you really saying you don’t have to be a Manager to be a Leader? Seriously?
The Experience answers:
Conventional business wisdom certainly has its place. In conventional businesses. To evolve and become an Experience Business, however, requires not just a slight re-tooling of leadership qualities, but a total transformation.
We looked to nature and science for natural laws that applied to the corporate organism. Because that’s what a corporation is: a living, breathing entity.
In this new habitat, words like ‘inspiration’, ‘personalization’ and ‘humanization’ become survival traits. And that’s when meaning becomes measurable.
Once any employee––whether hourly or salary––experiences the world of Experiences, a whole new world opens up. The world of leadership.
“In Her Own Words”

Futurists and analysts have long tried to define what makes a great corporate leader. To me, it’s pretty simple. Great Leaders are great contributors, and you can contribute from anywhere.
