INSPIRATION: Future Forum Cheat Sheet: 3 Ways To Become A More Effective Leader

INSPIRATION: Future Forum Cheat Sheet: 3 Ways To Become A More Effective Leader | Business change |

"At Ashoka, we spend a lot of time talking about the fact that everyone can be a “changemaker.” But during the recent Ashoka Future Forum the conversation shifted to how a do-gooder can become a “change leader,” someone who leads a team of like-minded activists, entrepreneurs or socially conscious consumers"

Change leaders allow others to take the lead, understanding that even the best coaches or quarterbacks can’t win games—much less championships—alone. In an 'Everyone a Changemaker' world, successful teams of change leaders function dynamically: leading from many different parts of the playing field, and sometimes, from the skybox.

We will begin to have a greater impact on social problem solving when more people take on roles that support others in all the ways they can, rather than constantly reinventing the wheel. I've posted more than 300 articles since 2005 with this goal in mind.

It's got to be about Why, not How: How Great Leaders Inspire Action, Simon Sinek

"Why FIRST:  Communication and the Golden Circle:  Why, How, What?  Inspire where others do not.  Profit is JUST a result NOT a reason for existing."


Simon's examples include Apple (why so innovative?), Martin Luther King (lead major change, Civil Rights movement), and the Wright brothers (controlled powered manned flight that others did not achieve, tho' were working on.)




"The goal is to do business with people who believe what YOU believe." ~ Simon Sinek




Apple:  NOT, What we do, great computers.  Want to buy one?

RATHER:  Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo, we believe thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is making products that are beautifully designed, simple to use & user friendly.  We happen to make computers.  Want to buy one?


Counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling. Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?"
