We need creative people to facilitate the understanding of data

We need creative people to facilitate the understanding of data | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

"Creativity is driven by Social dynamics.

Creativity is the result of a set of relationships with a strong social dimension and emotional. It is a collaborative environment (and this is where HR can play a significant role), hence the change of focus towards the organizational culture and transformation in design organizations.”

 

“We need an inclusion in this dialogue from artists, from poets, from writers — from ===> people who can bring a human element into this discussion. <====

 

Because I believe that this world of data is going to be transformative to us.”

Is An Open Door Policy Killing Your Productivity? | Time Management Ninja

Is An Open Door Policy Killing Your Productivity? | Time Management Ninja | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

How do you get things done if your doors are always open?

 

Agree, doors should be closed to concentrate and focus on one task at the time. Walk outside your office to open spaces to socialize or meeting rooms for group work.

 

Not sure if it is working ? Try to track your interruptions on a piece of paper and log the time, who disturbed you and for how long,  how urgent and important was the question.

 

Not only you will realize you need to have a "non open door" time to be productive but you can teach and empower your employees to find the answers before considering you as a resource.

"Where the Wild Ideas Are" cartoon | Tom Fishburne: Marketoonist | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
The world needs wild ideas. But every wild idea faces a road of obstacles to bring it to life. The hard work comes after the brainstorming rumpus when you have to bring others along. Few of these obstacles are as rough as the devil's advocate.

Mark Twain on Plagiarism and Originality: “All Ideas Are Second-Hand”

Mark Twain on Plagiarism and Originality: “All Ideas Are Second-Hand” | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

"It takes a thousand men to invent a telegraph, or a steam engine, or a phonograph, or a telephone or any other important thing — and the last man gets the credit and we forget the others"

 

I think that pure creativity does not exist. Any action creates a reaction,  so new ideas are either copies of existing ideas used in a new context or in reaction to something already existing to create different results.

Leadership is a lonely place

Leadership is a lonely place | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Great leaders allow their team to be successful.

 

A friend recently tried to recruit me into a business he was invested in. It was in a market sector that I have absolutely no knowledge of and I felt uncomfortable with my lack of understanding of the firm and its products. I was told that collectively, the co-founders and the investors agreed that it was necessary to recruit a CEO capable of leading the firm to its next phase of growth. The board felt, and the co-founders agreed, that it was also necessary for the founders to stay focused on product design.

 

My friend said:

 

“First and foremost we want a great leader. We want somebody with a proven track record that can inspire the team to produce great products but knows that he needs the team to excel in order to do so. We want somebody that can sell, but knows he will never be as good a salesman as our head of sales. We want someone that is a good planner but can let go enough to allow the CFO to do what he’s good at. Mostly we want somebody that can set an achievable stretch plan and get consensus to achieve success. We need somebody that can attract future investors and can steer the ship into calm waters when the going gets rough. Deep domain knowledge is an unnecessary bonus”
