Des défis à la mesure de vos compétences …

À la recherche de votre flow professionnel ?

Vous arrive-t-il de vous sentir pleinement concentré sur vos tâches au travail, au sommet de votre créativité, motivé par ce que vous faites, à tel point que vous ne voyez pas le temps passer? Cela vous procure-t-il une sensation de bien-être que vous souhaitez revivre sans trop savoir comment y parvenir? Vous êtes alors sans doute dans votre zone de flow. Mais, qu’est-ce que le flow? Cet article propose une définition du flow, présente les conditions qui mènent à cet état et les conséquences que cela peut avoir sur votre vie au travail. Je conclurai en vous proposant un exercice pour amorcer votre réflexion sur le flow dans votre vie professionnelle.

Le flow, un concept né à contrecourant

Longtemps intéressés à expliquer la détresse psychologique des individus, les chercheurs se tournent depuis quelques décennies vers l’étude de la santé et du bien-être, pour comprendre notamment les causes du bonheur et du fonctionnement optimal au travail (Seligman, 2002). Le psychologue hongrois Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, un des pères du courant de la psychologie positive, a interviewé dans les années 70 des centaines d’individus qui disaient avoir du plaisir dans leurs activités. Pour décrire l’expérience qu’ils vivaient, plusieurs participants ont utilisé l’image du courant qui les emportait sans effort, d’où la naissance du terme flow.

L’état de flow est décrit par Csikszentmihalyi (1990) comme un état de concentration qui implique une absorption et un engagement complets dans la tâche. Un individu dans son flow fonctionne à pleine capacité et est capable de se consacrer à des activités longues, complexes et parfois risquées, sans motivation autre que le plaisir d’accomplir cette tâche. En d’autres termes, dans le flow, votre perception du temps est altérée, vos préoccupations disparaissent et les distractions ne vous atteignent pas. Vous êtes motivé non pas par des récompenses externes ou par le résultat, mais par la nature même de la tâche et les sensations de plaisir qu’elle procure.

Un fragile équilibre pour être dans la « zone »

Pour entrer dans votre zone de flow, plusieurs conditions sont nécessaires. La plus importante condition est l’équilibre entre le niveau de difficulté de la tâche auquel vous faites face et votre niveau de compétence par rapport à la tâche. Tout est ici question d’expérience subjective, c’est-à-dire de vos perceptions à l’égard de la difficulté de la tâche et de votre niveau de compétence, et non pas d’une mesure objective et externe de ces deux notions (Nakamura et Csikszentmihalyi, 2009).

Cet équilibre est précaire. Quand la difficulté de la tâche commence à dépasser votre niveau de compétence, vous entrez alors dans un état de vigilance pouvant se transformer en anxiété. À l’inverse, quand votre niveau de compétence tend à surpasser le degré de difficulté de la tâche, vous entrez dans un premier temps dans un état de relaxation, qui à la longue se transforme en ennui. La tâche doit donc être suffisamment complexe pour vous stimuler, mais pas trop, pour vous permettre de maintenir un sentiment de contrôle à l’égard de l’accomplissement de la tâche. La figure ci-dessous illustre cette notion d’équilibre  (Csikszentmihalyi, 1975).

Une boucle de rétroaction entre vous et la tâche

La deuxième condition pour le maintien du flow est la présence d’une cible claire et d’une rétroaction immédiate sur le progrès réalisé (Nakamura et Csikszentmihalyi, 2009). Vous savez ce que vous voulez accomplir et la tâche elle-même ainsi que l’expérience que vous vivez lors de son accomplissement sont génératrices de feedback. Par exemple, vous êtes en train d’accomplir une tâche au travail qui vous permet d’atteindre un équilibre défi-compétences engendrant le flow. Le plaisir suscité par la tâche, première forme de rétroaction, vous amène à agir en augmentant le degré de difficulté pour continuer à être stimulé, motivé et absorbé. La tâche, en devenant plus complexe, peut vous faire alors vivre de l’anxiété. Cette anxiété ressentie agit également comme une forme de rétroaction sur la tâche et vous amène à réajuster à la baisse le niveau de difficulté. Ces actions d’ajustement que vous prenez, en interaction avec la tâche et votre expérience, vous permettent ainsi de rétablir l’équilibre et de retourner dans votre flow.

Des conséquences pour vous…et votre employeur!

Le fait de trouver des tâches au travail qui vous procurent plaisir, motivation et engagement pourrait être une fin en soi. L’intérêt du flow est cependant qu’une fois cet état atteint, vous avez l’envie de vous y maintenir, car il vous fait vivre des émotions et des expériences positives. Dans ces conditions, vous avez non seulement plus de chance d’accomplir vos tâches avec succès, mais cet état vous encourage également à rechercher de nouveaux défis et ainsi à développer vos compétences pour vous maintenir dans votre flow. Trouver, conjointement avec votre employeur, des défis à la mesure de vos compétences, et les ajuster au fur et à mesure de votre évolution, pourrait donc faire de vous un employé heureux, actualisé et performant!

Et vous, êtes-vous dans votre flow? Un exercice de réflexion

– Prenez 5 à 10 tâches de votre emploi. Soyez spontanés! Celles qui vous viennent à l’esprit sont probablement celles qui vous occupent, ou vous préoccupent, le plus. Situez-les dans la figure présentée dans l’article en fonction de votre sentiment de compétence par rapport à chaque tâche et du défi qu’elle représente pour vous.

– Maintenant, regardez l’ensemble de votre graphique : Êtes-vous généralement dans la zone optimale de flow? Certaines tâches vous font-elles vivre de l’ennui? D’autres causent-elles plutôt de l’anxiété? Comment pouvez-vous agir? Pouvez-vous identifiez des moyens pour rétablir l’équilibre?

  45. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  46. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  47. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  48. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  49. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  50. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  51. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  54. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  56. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
