Right answers to wrong questions - not direct path to success

Right answers to wrong questions - not direct path to success | Coach Leadership | Scoop.it

Right answers to wrong questions virtually guarantee failure. I prefer to think of "failure" as feedback that the path I was following wasn't getting me to what I wanted.  If we want better answers, ask better questions.  In fact, consider Michael Schrage's "The Ask." 

 

"Who do you want your customers to become?"

 

He writes in the business context.  I am reflecting on the question in other areas of life that requires influence (e.g. parenting, career, consumer).  It's a framework for "strategic introspection" how I want to show up in the dynamics of constant change and evolution. 

 

If anything, it'll make you more aware when "google," use your smartphone, order at Starbucks, vote in this election - you'll see that you are already part of the dynamics and transformation.  It offers a framework for conscious choices.

Are You a Collaborative Leader?

Are You a Collaborative Leader? | Coach Leadership | Scoop.it

Interesting for leaders at all levels of the organization, especially if you are proactively unlearning the command-and-control management style.  To quote:

 

"So how does one practice collaborative leadership? At the very basic level, collaborative leaders transcend their own parochial agendas and craft a unity of purpose that brings people together."

"Leaders Awaken Potential" Five Ways to Find and Tap into it | Coach Leadership | Scoop.it

My "job" description: "Leaders help people paint themselves into pictures of what’s around the corner in the universe of “not yet.” The Result: "Passion ignites when people see their potential in new pictures they help paint."

 

Doesn't that help make the canvas of life exciting to paint on for yourself?

Leadership by Example: How to Ignite this Quality in Your Life and Work

Leadership by Example: How to Ignite this Quality in Your Life and Work | Coach Leadership | Scoop.it

If we think of leadership as influence in an interaction, who isn't a leader?   Just think of the influence and impact you have through your example.

 

"Leadership is as local as any of us sitting at our desks or collaborating in an online meeting or via social media or working in our communities – and as global, connected, and far-reaching as time, distance, and technology can take us. In an instant, it stretches across cultures and many dimensions of difference. We all are part of an emerging diverse, global leadership corps with opportunities every day to influence something or someone."

Ten Reasons Winners Keep Winning, Aside from Skill

Ten Reasons Winners Keep Winning, Aside from Skill | Coach Leadership | Scoop.it

What I take is that people who achieve what they define as "winning" do it because they have both the energetic capcity (highly anabolic) and full engagement.  Now, as you read this, think less about the context of "winners" and "losers" and more about high energy leaders and low energy leaders.  Perhaps we can all play the games at our best.

Great Strategic Leaders Always Think Twice

Great Strategic Leaders Always Think Twice | Coach Leadership | Scoop.it

We interpret everything we take in through the senses.  Everything is filtered based on our beliefs so we see what we expect to see.  If you want a different future, you need updated filters to interpret differently. 

 

"Most people let old ideas influence current decisions. But true strategic thinkers interpret situations from many angles and come up with better solutions. Every time."

Creative leadership requires courage | Access to "Genius Mind"

'Courage is the first of the human qualities, because it is the one that guarantees all others," said the Greek philosopher Aristotle. And it's true, especially when it comes to creativity and innovation.

 

And following an intuitive hit this morning, I was reviewing how I could do more for my clients to help them access the powerful place where synergy of the analytical mind and creative senses could sponsor creativity and innovation in themselves and those around them.  My Genius Mind led me to this article.

 

Courage is key to empower the genius that is within yourself; to be free from the fear of what others may think; from worry of getting it "wrong."  Courage to develop and unleash your creative potential.  There exists a practice that supports you in accessing your highest energy level so you can free both your passion and expertise - inspiring innovation and co-creating what didn't exist before.

 

Conscious leadership is creative leadership.
