Mélanie Ciussi recommands...How Successful Leaders Think - Harvard Business Review

To emulate skilled leaders' ability to devise solutions that transcend conflicting alternatives.
Students Elective Course's insight:

Roger Martin is dean of Rothman Business School. He invented the concept of "integrative thinking" which is mentionned in the IBM report. This short article states again the impact of non linear thinking to be creative.

The fact that he did not simply chose an existing model, but merged them into a new one, shows some real out-of-the-box thinking.

This article is very coherent to me.<br>I think a great creative leader is not someone who try to imitate others to succeed.<br>The author is right when he says that to succeed , we must first study the existing ideas , then keep the best and finally , with this synthesis, create a more innovative and completely revolutionary idea.<br>Whoever thinks that way is already a leader.<br>it is true that a leader must be very innovative , and it is not given to everyone , but the discipline is also important.<br>Before being a business school student , I studied a master of law, and even if we don’t develop all his creative side at the university unfortunately, my previous studies have allowed me to have a very synthetic vision in things.<br>So I hope with this double diploma i’ll have a mind both synthetic and creative in order to work in marketing and be a good creative leader.

I've chosen this article because of the title. The word thinking is really important for entrepreneurship. People link entrepreneurship with action but before that it's all about thinking. It was really interesting to understand another way of thinking: integrative thinking. It was the first time I heard about that and i understand the concept. I like the idea to think globalized, to understand a problem by having a full picture of it, even by having two opposite ideas. This is the best way to generate new ideas. Some people stay stuck in a way of thinking that is given to them, and they can't create something new but just adapte something already existing or improve something. The concept of entrepreneurship is to Create ! Integrative thinkers analyse the whole problem, not only the obvious part. They understand in a globalized way and so generate ideas. <br>I think this way of seeing things and this way of thinking are useful to run a business, to work for a company, to live in society, to understand politics, and so on. This is a tool that can help people for everything.

Recently, our Centre for India & Global Business at Cambridge University was privileged to host a talk by Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, the former President of India. Like millions of Indians, I hold Dr Kalam in high esteem.
Students Elective Course's insight:

Eight keys for creative leadership in our global economy. A good article from Harvard Business Review blog.

The fact that you need to posess 8 key tenets to be a creative leader stresses why creative leaders are so rare. Commenting on the author's closing sentence; I think creative leaders are leaders which tend to have a quick and suitable responses to newly arised situations. They tend to be innovative on the long-term and show that they can adapt to a constantly chaning environment.

I liked this article but I think that we should have tried to find these creative leaders a few years before and not unfortunately during the economic crisis. Of course, we couldn't tell how the future will be, but as for me, these criteria are so tremendous that we need them every time. As it is really hard to get all this elements into one personality, why creating a kind of chair of creativity in each firm ?

This article shows very well my vision of a leader. The leader is not necessarily someone who has always had success. Some even enchainent defeats before getting the results he wants. I like this article for its clarity. It shows us that the leader must know how to manage a team in any circumstance and with the greatest possible transparency. It allows you to link to the article Steve Jobs, which also shows the success of a man who started with little things and managed to convert part of the planet to the simplicity of its product. The leader seeks above all to meet a need like Steve Jobs so it follows the trend of the market while innovating. The decisions are not always easy to follow especially in times of crisis.
This article reminds me of the experience Marissa Mayer, the CEO of Yahoo (formerly of Google) that had to take risks to change the company. In his case we can see that the leader is entrepreneur since acquired more than 20 start up for Yahoo. The leader has to take risks (while controlling them).
