Be Original And Flourish As A Leader in 2015

Be Original And Flourish As A Leader in 2015 | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it
“The wise man lives off the fool, and the fool lives off his job.” This old Spanish proverb is timeless – yet many leaders in the workplace lack the wisdom to create enough impact to be both successful and significant in their work.

How often do you feel foolish because you allow others to dictate your leadership style and approach? Leadership is about wisdom – giving you the know-how to avoid being foolishly taken advantage of – and then sharing that wisdom to help others learn and grow. Wise leaders are the ones whose presence, authenticity and the manner in which they communicate and engage with others are genuine and unique. They quickly earn respect – but realize it takes originality, creativity and uncommon thinking to sustain it.

The danger of hiding who you are

The danger of hiding who you are | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it
Morgana Bailey has been hiding her true self for 16 years. In a brave talk, she utters four words that might not seem like a big deal to some, but to her have been paralyzing. Why speak up? Because she’s realized that her silence has personal, professional and societal consequences. In front of an audience of her co-workers, she reflects on what it means to fear the judgment of others, and how it makes us judge ourselves.

My mother’s strange definition of empowerment

My mother’s strange definition of empowerment | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it
Khadija Gbla grew up caught between two definitions of what it means to be an “empowered woman.” While her Sierra Leonean mother thought that circumsizing her — and thus stifling her sexual urges — was the ultimate form of empowerment, her culture as a teenager in Australia told her that she deserved pleasure and that what happened to her was called “female genital mutilation.” In a candid and funny talk, she shares what it was like to make her way in a “clitoris-centric society,” and how she works to make sure other women don’t have to figure this out. (Warning: This talk contains hard-to-hear details.)

Market Leading Industry Groups

Market Leading Industry Groups | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it
Tuesday’s preopening action was quite ugly as traders focused on the lousy earnings from some key big-cap stocks that had been hurt by the stronger dollar. The sharp drop in Durable Goods before the opening did not help. The Spyder Trust (SPY) opened down 1.2%. The low was made in the first hour of trading as SPY closed with a 1.32% loss.

The Nasdaq 100 was hit the hardest as it lost 2.58%, which was almost five times greater than the loss in the small-cap Russell 2000. The QQQ will look a bit better on this morning’s opening after the very strong earnings from Apple, Inc. (AAPL) and Yahoo.com (YHOO) as the Powershares QQQ Trust (QQQ) is up 1.5% in early trading.

In yesterday’s in-depth technical outlook Buy Apple on an Earning's Miss, I emphasized the strong technical evidence that Apple had completed its correction. In order to setup a good buying opportunity, the stock needed to pullback to support, which could have been in reaction to an earnings miss. Instead, the broad market decline took AAPL back to support and the initial buying zone. In pre-market trading, AAPL is up over 8%.

There were actually some positive developments Tuesday that were almost totally ignored by the financial media’s stock market coverage. The Consumer Confidence soared to 102.9, up from 92.6. This was the highest reading since 2007. New Home Sales surged 11.6% and the PMI Services Index beat expectations. Also, the advance/decline ratios were much stronger than prices.

I've been reading "Real Influence" by Robert Ullman and John Goulston (http://www.amazon.ca/Real-Influence-Persuade-Without-Pushing/dp/081442015X), and they talk about the importance of connecting authentically.  In Real Influence, Ullman and Goulston refer to this authenticity as "Connected Influence".  

W. Bradley Gooderham's curator insight, January 28, 4:38 PM

The future need innovators and the present needs innovative teachers to nurture them.   Creativity and the ability to innovate are natural characteristics but they must be built up and encouraged in our students, colleagues, and selves.


IteratED is committed to bringing out and nurturing the best in all of our faculty and students. We understand that this requires greater autonomy to make decisions and more trust in the natural ability to learn through exploration.


Are you a teacher who wants to reach for your highest potential? We are here to help you get there. Contact IteratED for more information on how together we can provide exceptional 21st-century education.
