LeadU presents F-L-O-W Meta Change Model


F-L-O-W Meta Change Model

Ok, time’s up, hehe


@F-L-O-W Meta Change Model (FMCM)

Awareness, Purpose, Competence, Wellth, Scaffolding is a meta-change model, anchoring the categories of elements in the @F-L-O-W APPs (periodic chart) System (FAP).

If you compare it — figuratively without literal content — to other change models, you’ll see that it is a natural change model.

Unconscious incompetence — conscious incompetence — conscious competence — unconscious competence from NLP (I believe) in both the Gravian models, put the @F-L-O-W models where the dashes are between steps and you have the meta-change realization. 

What @F-L-O-W does that other models don’t do — which is a key differentiator — is recognizing the role of scaffolding in the meta-change process.  Even in adult development (MHC) hierarchical transition steps can be mapped to the FMCM showing that, from what to what, as the Gravian/Beck Model outlines.

[Do you need some examples of change models?  Graves had one: alpha-beta-flex/gamma-delta surge, alpha.  There are many other standard models that can be compared in a matrix, which would help people understand this model.  For now, I just wanted to capture it.]

Helpful Hint: Change comes from the conversations that often starts and ends “nowhere”, but as a result “now here” emerges. Instead of doing change, in @F-L-O-W, we let change emerge indirectly because in complexity, the unintended effects are almost always more leveraging — self-organizing — than the intended goals of change.

Action Step: Identify what is subject and what is not yet object. 
(Purpose) Decide what’s IMULL (important, motivating, urgent, leveraging, and low-hanging fruit). 
(Competence), Engage the process that emerges. 
(Wellth), Evaluate whether or not fitness and alignment are issues. 
(Scaffolding) Reach out for help in supporting, incubating, fostering, facilitating, protecting the emergent system until it can stand, work, function, be, do, have, become on its own.

    We hope you pick up valuable insights, ideas, and tools during this process, which you can use for your own development as well as your work and leadership with others.
