Reframing Problem Solving with the Appreciative Inquiry 4 D Cycle - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman

Reframing Problem Solving with the Appreciative Inquiry 4 D Cycle - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it
Have you ever noticed how, as leaders, we’re often far more sensitive to people’s weaknesses than we are to their strengths? And once we’ve targeted a weakness, do you ever notice how common it is for us to slide into problem-solving mode?

Lately, I’ve been experiencing daily reminders of how this inhibits us from recognizing what people are good at and helping them use their strengths to serve others. I’m reminded of this every time I watch a teacher slide into editing mode before she provides a learner narrative feedback.  I’m reminded of this every time I watch an administrator rush to make judgments about the observations gathered during a lesson study. And I’m reminded of this every time I listen as two people on opposite sides of an issue fail to practice active listening or check their confirmation bias.

Motivating Employees? Here’s What So Many Leaders Get So Wrong

Motivating Employees? Here’s What So Many Leaders Get So Wrong | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

"The tips and tricks we’re used to reading about are largely driven by extrinsic motivation, a desire to earn an award or avoid punishment. Run a marathon to lose weight; study for a good grade; put in extra hours at work for that end-of-year bonus, or so the thinking goes"

What a great piece about how to really tap into employees intrinsic (internal) motivation -- instead of the usual external motivators like prizes, bonuses, etc.

 

And what's the first step mentioned for leaders to master? Storytelling!

 

Read the article for more insights on tapping into people's internal motivations, why external motivators don't work and how we get stuck there, and then follow the 3 steps that includes storytelling to generate the results you really desire.

AS WORK TRANSFORMS, LEADERSHIP STILL MATTERS

AS WORK TRANSFORMS, LEADERSHIP STILL MATTERS | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it
It has certainly been interesting as of late, with leaders and the practice of leadership receiving more scrutiny than any other time in recent history. There seems to be no shortage of data pointing to the current “leadership crisis,” from surveys on confidence, trust, hope, and optimism, and the frequently discussed issue of employee engagement. With little to no improvement, the leadership conversation now includes theories and practices such as distributed leadership, holocracy management, and leaderless environments. And while the jury is still out on many of the new models, I strongly believe that as work transforms, leadership still matters.

Nasdaq CEO Bob Greifeld explains the strategy he uses to find the company's next leaders

Nasdaq CEO Bob Greifeld explains the strategy he uses to find the company's next leaders | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it
Nasdaq, Inc. CEO Bob Greifeld regularly has group lunches with non-executive employees to remain visible and available to those outside of his inner circle.
But through these lunches, Greifeld is able to get an idea of who will be rising up the ranks to a leadership position.
"It's always interesting to me to see the range of engagement of people," he told Business Insider in a recent interview held in Nasdaq's New York headquarters.
He'll find some employees who are "intellectually curious" and know what is happening within Nasdaq and the industry, and other employees who may be talented and capable but only know what's happening within their own job.
"If you don't have that intellectual curiosity, magnified by passion, then it's hard to advance, and, certainly at the executive level, hard to thrive," Greifeld said.
To help monitor the growth of natural leaders possessing this trait, Nasdaq ties 10% of its employees' compensation to an engagement score.
"Intellectual curiosity" is also the primary attribute Greifeld looks for when interviewing candidates for a role that reports directly to him.
"I think water seeks its level over time," he said. "As managers you might think you have the ability to change employees, but I say you have the ability to improve them but not to change them, because they will always go back to their own level." Therefore, he wants to find candidates whose innate curiosity and passion will drive them, without his intervention.
"You've got to assess who this person is, what their motivations are, at what rate do they want to work, and how do they want to advance," Greifeld said.
"We want to see people who want to be passionate, want to be engaged, want to be part of the industry, and are not just coming here to work to make what is a good paycheck."

Google’s New App Brings Hundreds of Museums to Your Phone

Google’s New App Brings Hundreds of Museums to Your Phone | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it
Not everyone can visit Sicily’s Valley of the Temples, home to some of the world’s oldest examples of classic Greek architecture. Nor can they view the soft colors of Claude Monet’s “Tiger Lilies” in person at Tokyo’s National Museum of Western Art. Despite being made for the masses, art and culture are often inaccessible. Google’s Cultural Institute wants to change that. In the past five years, the initiative has teamed up with more than 1,100 institutions to bring artwork, artifacts, and 360-degree museum tours online. In an update to its Arts & Culture app, the company turns your phone into a powerful portal for accessing and experiencing that art.

We're raising our girls to be perfect, and we're raising our boys to be brave, says Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code. Saujani has taken up the charge to socialize young girls to take risks and learn to program — two skills they need to move society forward. To truly innovate, we cannot leave behind half of our population, she says. "I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection."

Three Core Competencies in Global Mindset

Three Core Competencies in Global Mindset | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it
At the age of digitalization, ‘being who you really are as a global leader’ is more critical than ever.
The business world has become hyperconnected and interdependent. Global leaders of the future sense, feel, read, imagine and intuit possibilities in the journey of digital transformation. Global leaders articulate strategic visions, interactive designs, and navigating directions where networks of management informally communicate the possibility of generative behavior changes in structure, patterns, and processes. With unprecedented digital technology advances, the knowledge brainstorming is happening in real time with people and plays spontaneous networks of human and business operational concerns. Organizations not only need good managers to take care of today’s business; but also have to grow the world class leaders with a global mindset to leapfrog their companies for long-term prosperity. What are the core competencies in global mindset?
Self-awareness: At the age of digitalization, ‘being who you really are as a global leader’ is more critical than ever, being authentic is a sort of prerequisite of global leadership because your digital footprint is omnipresent, the working life is converging with personal life, you have to be real and true to yourself and others. This will translate and distill into believability throughout your entire organization and beyond. Being authentic means to be original, positive, progressive, courageous, conscious, creative and curious, and to adopt mindsets of critical thinking, challenging convention, maximizing diversity and being willing to experiment, as a basis for then being able to think differently, independently, and globally. You will be seen as a digital professional and leader who can be trusted not just by your coworkers but also by your customers or clients. Global leadership is shifting toward grooming historic digital leadership skills embodying effective communication in networks of global conversations that inspires creativity in diverse domains of expertise.
Inquisitiveness: The diversity of thoughts, character, cognitive difference, skills, style, and generation account for the majority of our difference for today's digital workforce. Global leaders are inquisitive to ask many good questions. The good question is usually open and thought-provoking. The good question brings multifaceted perspective with culture intelligence. People are gregarious by nature, they tend to organize themselves and it gives rise to a collective set of attitudes, beliefs, educational systems, notions of time and space, society structures, ways of doing business, etc. These items are the elements of a culture (regional, national, continental, age, ethnic background, religious beliefs, the list goes on and on). Hence, global leadership certainly has to take into account cultural intelligence and how that affects things: how you interact with one another, how you manage, and what’s your thinking process and how you make a decision; from cognitive intelligence about others - as well as themselves! A global leader needs to be able to facilitate and orchestrate these difference, values, cultures and gain profound understanding about the business ecosystem.
Adaptability: Global leaders manage people across functional and broad geographic boundaries. In one way 'global leadership' is synonymous with leading virtual teams across the globe. They must be comfortable leading remote teams, multiplexing tasks and time zones, communicating and collaborating in a way that keeps everyone focused and connected in spite of the distances. While there are many components of global leadership, one of the most important ones is the ability to adapt, model and influence change. We live in a world where change is the norm and if we don't embrace it, accept it, roll with it or make it happen, we're not going to be successful. The adaptable global leaders are good at shifting from one leadership style to another, but keep the leadership substance on check; they are good at identifying and articulating paradigm shifts, setting trend, not fad; and they are good at molding leaders that go out and promote changes in people's mindsets and paradigms and make influence through vision and insight.
Cultivating digital leaders with the global mind is not just simply a horizontal expansion of management responsibility, look around to find out how to bring leaders closer to integrity and authenticity. They are crucial for global leadership. They bring courage, which is lacking so much so often, they bring determination to make things happen, they bring inspiration when you trust what you feel to decide what to do, and they bring the capability to lead the hyperconnected world effectively.
