Why Our Complex World Needs Connective Leadership

Why Our Complex World Needs Connective Leadership | Advancement of Teaching & Learning |

“Diversity trumps ability” as a sufficiently diverse, large group of non-experts often outperforms a small group of experts,” found Future Perfect authorSteven Johnson. In our increasingly complex, disruptive world, we will face more situations where we’ll benefit from calling on the so-called wisdom of the crowd.

Linda Alexander's insight:

"Diversity trumps ability" is a clear message to all classroom teachers, institutions & business innovation organizers.

This is Connected Educators month. We talk more and more about collaboration and working well together. While I'm not convinced the crowd is always the wisest, I think it's likely we'll hear more creative ideas from the crowd than if we work exclusive of the so-called non-experts.

Loved this article scooped by John Lasschuit! What intrigued me was the diagram plotting the relationships. As a Mind Map devotee, it was always going to lure me in! What was even more interesting was the notion of connective leadership. Great leaders are communicators; they work with and through people and they build relationships that, in turn, develop further relationships. If they don't, they are not great leaders!
