“GvG” = Gamma via Gestalt

(“17” = 2017 year established)

Gamma = Gamma brain waves occur when you’re at peak performance.

Gamma is the brainwave state of being “in the Zone,” that feeling that you can do anythingPeople with very high levels of gamma activity are exceptionally intelligent, compassionate, happy, and have excellent memories and strong self-control. IQ scores of people with high gamma wave activity are correspondingly high. High gamma activity also corresponds to a state of peak performance.

Gestalt = Sum is greater than its parts.

According to Gestalt psychology, the whole is different from the sum of its parts. Based upon this belief, Gestalt psychologists developed a set of principles to explain perceptual organization, or how smaller objects are grouped to form larger ones. These principles are often referred to as the “laws of perceptual organization.”

I’m clearly not a neuroscientist nor a cognitive psychologist, but my layman interpretation of Gamma via Gestalt =  Breakthrough occurs when people embrace a growth mindset, engage unique perspectives, and leverage insights to propel momentum.   These breakthroughs can be big (launching a new business) or small (finding a faster route on your commute), but they’re rooted in creative exploration for discovery.   Ultimately, creative confidence is the cornerstone for growth.

Want to grow your advisory business?   Embrace creativity.

Want to grow as a leader?  Embrace creativity.

Want to grow as a person?  Embrace creativity.

In a left-brain industry like financial services, finding that edge means exploring the less traveled right-brain path of emotional intelligence, holistic thinking, and imagination.  Creativity doesn’t have to translate into art classes or writing poetry; but simply pushing out of your comfort zone to embrace your personal version of creativity.  Understanding where you comfort zone ends and your learning zone begins opens the door to innovation, differentiation, relationship depth, and ultimately growth.  If you want the gamma, then you need to find some gestalt.
