Change means reinvention. Each time a major shift happens in our lives, we have to take control of who we will become or risk never reaching our full potential.

When you see a thing clearly in your mind, your creative success mechanism within you takes over and does the job much better than you could do it by conscious effort or willpower.

5 Ways to Make Your Life More Like Burning Man

5 Ways to Make Your Life More Like Burning Man | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Don’t forget. A more magical world is possible: more inclusive, more generous, more free. Well, actually, you will forget. Impermanence works on your mind quicker than on almost anything else. But then you’ll remember you forgot, and you’ll step out into the beauty of the extended playa once again.

 

All you need to do is to make use of these 5 principles:

1. There is no default world
2. Expect more from strangers
3. Form your camp
4. Be part of the generosity economy
5. Embrace impermanence (at least for now)

How Rejection Breeds Creativity

How Rejection Breeds Creativity | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
With a few small changes in your mindset, you can turn rejection into a dramatic boost for your motivation and focus.

 

Being rejected is often a statement that you (or your ideas) are too far from the current mainstream to be considered safe or comfortable. This could actually be a good thing. You're ahead of your time. While the group or client may not believe they need you right away, the world probably does. If you're too far from the mainstream, you could be the one pushing progress forward.

The End of Leadership--at Least As We Know It!

The End of Leadership--at Least As We Know It! | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

America is currently facing a crisis of leadership in business and in government. Yet at the same time – participation in leadership seminars and programs has never been higher. The leadership industry, with many of  its roots in America, is now a $50 billion industry. 


Kellerman explains that the current state of leadership is no better understood or produced than it was 40 years ago and that followers are becoming more and more disenchanted by those who are leading them.


Though the leadership industry thrives, leadership in practice is declining in performance.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 11:33 AM

Leadership has been changing for some time, but not uniformly. It is not readily evident in education that hierarchy is a thing of the past. What this means is that we are educating children and youth in a model that theorists think is passe. No wonder we have a crisis. Practice and theory are not separate, they are fused.

Deborah Verran's comment, March 29, 3:13 PM
Leadership is not just about having ability it is all about demonstrating that ability in practice i.e. standing up & accepting both responsibility & accountability
Gust MEES's comment, March 29, 3:40 PM
Hi Deborah Verran, I agree by 100%! Have a great day :)

Neuroscience & Creativity: New Findings

Neuroscience & Creativity: New Findings | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"Thoughtful cognitive neuroscientists such as Rex Jung, Darya Zabelina, Andreas Fink, John Kounios, Mark Beeman, Kalina Christoff, Oshin Vartanian, Jeremy Gray, Hikaru Takeuchi and others are on the forefront of investigating what actually happens in the brain during the creative process. And their findings are overturning conventional notions surrounding the neuroscience of creativity.

 

The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction is not the right one when it comes to understanding how creativity is implemented in the brain. Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.

 

Instead, the entire creative process– from the initial burst of inspiration to the final polished product– consists of many interacting cognitive processes and emotions. Depending on the stage of the creative process, and what you’re actually attempting to create, different brain regions are recruited to handle the task."

As humans we seem programmed to divide everything into this and that. Then find out it is all part of a much wider whole. Brain and creativity no different after all!

Great Ideas Bosses Never Hear - Employees have a lot to say. But they rarely say them.

Great Ideas Bosses Never Hear - Employees have a lot to say. But they rarely say them. | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Companies need to listen more to employees' ideas, but employees also may have to change the way they present their ideas to be heard. What managers and bosses should do to put more good ideas to work.

 

How often do you have an idea that you want to tell your boss, or your boss's boss, or your boss's boss's boss, and actually say it? And more important, if you do say it, how often do you feel the boss really listens?

 

In too many companies, the answer to both of those questions is, at best, "hardly ever."

 

It's a shame. Leaders need to hear from employees on the front lines—those who interact with customers, who collaborate across organizational boundaries or with suppliers, who face the challenges of developing new products. Many of these employees have relevant things to say. But they don't speak up, either because they fear repercussions or they think it's pointless.

 

It's not easy opening up those lines of communication, to structure things so that good ideas can flow from bottom to top and quickly become a reality. The responsibilities rest with the employees, the bosses and the organization. More specifically:
