I received this interesting piece of knowledge about different types of energies in a human at a recent Art of Living course that I attended in Bangalore.
The course suggested that every human being has all of the 3 Energies; however, usually just one form of energy dominates the being.
The Brahma Energy is Creation; Vishnu – Operations, Mahesh – Transformation (Troubleshooting).
While most of us choose jobs according to our own dominant energy whether we realize it consciously or not, exceptional CEO’s is one category of people who reflect all 3 forms.
A CEO (could be a founder/entrepreneur) starts from an idea, takes it through execution and troubleshoots complex problems along his way.
While it is idealistic to have all three forms of energies working at optimum levels as and how required, in most cases, the entrepreneurial teams should be designed in a fashion that consist of all three energies to function effectively as a whole.
So, in order to achieve its goals, a balanced entrepreneurial team must ensure that it has:
- A Creative genius; may or not be the ideator (one who conceives the startup idea) but brings creativity and imaginative thinking to his tasks. Right from childhood days, this person would have had a keen sense of imagination reflected in his paintings, story-telling, drama etc.
- An Executioner; one who is methodical, structured and disciplined in his approach. These would usually be people who since their childhood days, kept their games and books stacked neatly, respected schedules and time and are highly organized.
- A Transformer; one who has an analytic mind and is able to create transformational stuff. These would be folks who usually broke toys and gadgets in their childhood to re-assemble them and create something new. These guys are heavy on the left-brain.
If you are not sure how to identify someone’s pre-dominant energy to fit him into the most suitable role, observe him and ask for his work preferences. One may be able to handle different tasks but the dominating energy determines excellence in a particular task. It’s very simple to identify the energy and then place the right peg in the right hole!
