This is an important message for any organizaiton.

Pavel Barta's comment, June 7, 2013 11:54 AM
I am so glad that we are moving away from the industrial era where human beings were just means to the end. The beauty and worth of human being is limitless and so is their potential to learn. We need to learn to unleash and harness the power that people have by treating them as human beings, like we would like to be trated ourselfs.

At the end of the day, leadership is all about performance. Breeding high-trust is essential to delivering extraordinary results.
Tony Vengrove's insight:

It's impossible to deliver truly great ideas and innovation without trust. Without trust, there's no risk-taking. Without risk-taking, you end up with mediocrity--or worse.

Tony Vengrove's insight:

There's a powerful lesson in this short story by Michael Lester. Creative Leadership requires the art of leading by objectives. As this story points out, we're often tempted to dictate all the steps that need to happen. A great creative leader empowers their team with one objective, then gets out of the way.

Tony Vengrove's insight:

Before we say no to any idea, we should be sure that we gave the opportunity due diligence; to fully understand what the presenter saw that was so exciting and relevant for the business. Remember, your team is taking time to think, create and package an idea. If you cut the discussion off too quickly, you’ll frustrate them. Do this too often and they’ll stop bringing ideas to you.

The Secret to an Efficient Team? Gratitude. | Creative Leadership | Scoop.it
Feel like you’re not getting enough appreciation at work? You’re probably right (and you’re probably guilty of it too).
Tony Vengrove's insight:

Creative Leaders know how important gratitude is. Often, a "Thank you" or a, "Great job!" are the only tangible things you can offer someone after a grueling effort. The good news is, that's what most people really want--a little recognition and praise. So get up out of your chair and go thank someone now!

The Rise Of Creativity As A Key Quality In Modern Leadership

The Rise Of Creativity As A Key Quality In Modern Leadership | Creative Leadership | Scoop.it
By David Slocum To speak of a creative leader, or manager, is for some a paradox: creativity is chaotic and unrestrained while leadership is orderly and controlling, and setting the two together makes for an uneasy, potentially volatile combination.
Tony Vengrove's insight:
I don't think there's much of a paradox unless you believe creative leadership requires leaders to demonstrate their own creativity. For those that know me, you know that I disagree with that. Creative Leaders must create the conditions for others to be be creative, first and foremost.

Tony Vengrove's insight:

So how do we make innovation “happen?” There’s really only one answer: any way you can. Let’s agree to let go of the notion that there’s a single magic formula for innovative success. Instead, let’s adopt a spirit of whatever it takes!

Do whatever it takes to get inspired, and to inspire those around you, to solve those seemingly impossible problems.

Do whatever it takes to connect the right people together and build a collective brain.

Do whatever it takes to understand what your consumers are really experiencing and feeling.

Do whatever it takes to create the conditions for others to channel their creative genius.

Do whatever it takes to defend ideas, no matter how much you’re outnumbered by skeptics.

Do whatever it takes to satisfy every constraint management throws at you, until you earn a green light for launch.

Do whatever it takes to learn and make things better—embrace failure a la Thomas Edison.

Do whatever it takes to gain agreement to take a shot on goal.
