World Class Leadership Skills / Business 2 Community

World Class Leadership Skills  /  Business 2 Community | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Strategic and tactical skills  -

"Clearly if an individual is strong in both areas, then there is a huge benefit: the strategic thinking takes into consideration the tactical realities; and the tactical realities are driven by the importance of the strategic plan. This person is able to make decisions along the executional path without endangering the attainment of the final objective. Great leaders who have mastered both these areas of skill can be said to be of sterling quality, with the sterling silver cord joining the strategic and tactical skills consistently strong along its entire length.  -   Their leadership at any point along that cord is maximally effective. Typically individuals tend to have strength either on the strategic end (knowing what to do) or on the tactical end (knowing how to do it). As we move towards becoming world-class leaders – of sterling quality – our skills need to be developed so that they are equally strong in both areas, and everywhere in between."

Every Leader Needs a Challenger in Chief

Every Leader Needs a Challenger in Chief | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it

Who in your organization serves as your Challenger in Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? A vast body of research now points to the import of contemplating diverse, dissenting views, making us smarter decision-makers.When group members are actively encouraged to openly express divergent opinions they not only share more information, they consider it more systematically and in a more balanced and less biased way.

Learning to Learn: fighting cognitive biases

Learning to Learn: fighting cognitive biases | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
Critical thinking is an increasingly important skill that has been overlooked by many as information becomes more accessible and superfluous.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

5 cognitive biases :

"Becoming this “thought leader,” if you will, is beneficial in many ways, including the ability to gain the trust of those with whom you wish to connect as well as the authority in the space in which you have established your expertise.   -   While it’s not possible to go through a list of each possible cognitive bias with each of life’s decisions, it is possible to take a few actions and train our brains to overcome these phenomena on a more general level. Here’s an investigative list of 5 cognitive biases and suggestions on how to fight them.


  • The Backfire Effect – the rejection of evidence that contradicts your point of view.
  • The Hard-Easy Bias – the pattern of overconfidence in easy situations and under confidence in difficult situations.
  • Irrational Escalation – compounding a bad investment, because “it’s already bad.”
  • The Observer-Expectancy Effect – when expectations influence outcome.
  • Reactance – the desire to do the opposite of what you’re asked or advised, simply to prove your freedom of choice.
  • Bias Blind Spot – not recognizing the existence of cognitive biases.
