To start to lay out the concept of LeadershipFlow it is necessary to really understand the concept of Flow and there is no better place to start than the study of the man who is really considered the “Godfather” of Flow, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (pronounced Me-High Chick-Sent-Me-High).  Csikszentmihalyi, is a Hungarian born psychology professor who moved to the United States when he was in his 20’s.
His early studies focused on happiness and creativity. It was through these studies that Csikszentmihalyi started to look into what he would term Flow, the state of being where one’s performance was heightened and one really starts to come alive. Csikszentmihalyi defined flow as “being so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter. The ego falls away. Time Flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you’re using your skills to the utmost.”
Csikszentmihalyi has written over 120 articles and books on Flow. More can be found on him at:
