Lessons in Leadership from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster

Lessons in Leadership from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster | Looking at leadership from a Christian perspective | Scoop.it

Three widely cited investigations of the Fukushima disaster — one by the Japanese government, one by an independent team of experts in Japan and a third by The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace — have now concluded that the nuclear disaster of March 2011 was not, as it first seemed, the inevitable result of events no one could have predicted.

 

“It was a profoundly man-made disaster that could and should have been foreseen and prevented,” said Kiyoshi Kurokawa, chairman of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission, established by the National Diet of Japan.

 

In an effort to understand what went wrong and what lessons in leadership the tragedy can offer, leaders directly and indirectly involved in the disaster spoke candidly at the Tokyo panel on Fukushima sponsored by Wharton’s Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL). Based on their presentations in Tokyo and the analyses of others in Japan and elsewhere, three areas emerge as essential to leadership in a crisis: preparation for emergencies, leadership style and communications.

Three lessons we can all learn from.  Additionally, this incident demonstrates how a lack of leadership can have disasterous consequences.

Looking at leadership from a Christian perspective
There are many perspectives about leadership. Political, Organizational are two areas we see on a daily basis. The point of this curation is to pull key thoughts and ask the question, "How does this apply to our Christian walk?" Your comments are welcome and appreciated.

80 % of our behavior is unconscious. Brain research event suggests 95 %. Investing time in discovering ourselves is not an option, it is our joyful obligation if we want to lead and make a difference. In addition to these great questions, I suggest one more : "What are you stopping doing" ?

Click on the URL; empathy played a key role in our Conducting Effective Performance Discussions webinar, particularly around handling challenging reactions.

David Barrett's curator insight, January 19, 9:13 AM

THIS IS A REPOST.  sorry - I posted the wrong article yesterday...

This is an awesome message to all of us Type A’s: stop talking once in a while and listen!  It offers three key behaviors of empathetic listening: 
- recognizing all verbal and nonverbal cues; 
- processing, understanding the meaning of the messages
- assuring others that listening has occurred and encouraging communication to continue.

The bottom line, says author Christine Riordan… “Slowing down, engaging with others rather than endlessly debating, taking the time to hear and learn from others, and asking brilliant questions are ultimately the keys to success."
