Culture Of Courage: Creating A Culture That Breeds Bravery

Culture Of Courage: Creating A Culture That Breeds Bravery | Change Champions | Scoop.it
People are innately wired to avoid risk. During times of times of change and uncertainty, our risk aversion is amplified. Yet the number one way to gaining competitive edge is by creating a culture where people feel safe and emboldened to innovate and challenge the status quo thinking. The first key to creating a 'culture of courage' is leading from possibility, not probability.

This is a great visual representation of the power and learning opportunities of mistakes. The parent population needs to realize that greater and deeper understanding comes from making and correcting mistakes than memorizing merely to get the reward of a grade.

People Don’t Want Something Truly New, They Want the Familiar Done Differently.

People Don’t Want Something Truly New, They Want the Familiar Done Differently. | Change Champions | Scoop.it

I’ll admit, the bento box is an unlikely place to learn an important business lesson. But consider the California Roll —
Understanding the impact of this icon of Japanese dining can make all the difference between the success or failure of your product.


If you’ve ever felt the frustration of customers not biting, then you can sympathize with Japanese restaurant owners in America during the 1970s. Sushi consumption was all but non-existent.


By all accounts, Americans were scared of the stuff. Eating raw fish was an aberration and to most, tofu and seaweed were punch lines, not food.


Then came the California Roll. While the origin of the famous maki is still contested, its impact is undeniable. The California Roll was made in the USA by combining familiar ingredients in a new way. Rice, avocado, cucumber, sesame seeds, and crab meat — the only ingredient unfamiliar to the average American palate was the barely visible sliver of nori seaweed holding it all together.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 27, 1:38 PM
Something that is totally new is challenging. Hans-Georg Gadamer contended little changes and most of the change occurs on the periphery/margins. Consider how little schools have changed. They make look a bit different, but are they? Do we teach totally different? I don' t think so, but it is OK. When we change everything all at once, the risk of failing is daunting. If we fail, it means starting over. John Dewey argued we conserve what is useful and morally right and replace what is not in both categories.

These Are Six Communication Styles That Every Single Person Uses

These Are Six Communication Styles That Every Single Person Uses | Change Champions | Scoop.it

If you’ve ever had a miscommunication or failed to comprehend what someone else was trying to say, it could be that your perceptual languages are getting in the way. Discovered by development psychologist Taibi Kahler, perceptual languages are the different processes of how people communicate. The way people communicate often carries more information than the words themselves, says clinical psychologist Nate Regier, cofounder of the communication-coaching firm Next Element.

Infra Bazaar Pvt Ltd.'s comment, April 13, 12:42 AM
nice info it is very helpful for communicating with others thanks for sharing.
rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 14, 2:06 AM
Communication is a complex process that goes much beyond mere verbal communication.The study of semiotics, kinesthetics and the use of gestures all of them happen to be an integral part of a system of communication that goes beyond the verbal level.Taibi Kahler suggests that "perceptual languages" are different processes and filters used by people while communicating with others. Teachers and educationists will find this article interesting especially as it helps them understand why some of their pupils find it difficult to comprehend what they think are "simple instructions".

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal | Change Champions | Scoop.it

Teddy Roosevelt did it. Harry Truman did it. Want to be an outstanding leader? Keep a leadership journal. As part of my executive coaching work, one of the most effective tools I recommend that powers up the coaching process is a leadership journal.  The exercise of leadership is not unlike a sport you play. When you review your actions in the field you learn what worked, what didn’t, and adjust along the way. Leadership guru Peter Drucker said: “ Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. ”
