Creative leadership requires courage | Access to "Genius Mind"

'Courage is the first of the human qualities, because it is the one that guarantees all others," said the Greek philosopher Aristotle. And it's true, especially when it comes to creativity and innovation.

 

And following an intuitive hit this morning, I was reviewing how I could do more for my clients to help them access the powerful place where synergy of the analytical mind and creative senses could sponsor creativity and innovation in themselves and those around them.  My Genius Mind led me to this article.

 

Courage is key to empower the genius that is within yourself; to be free from the fear of what others may think; from worry of getting it "wrong."  Courage to develop and unleash your creative potential.  There exists a practice that supports you in accessing your highest energy level so you can free both your passion and expertise - inspiring innovation and co-creating what didn't exist before.

 

Conscious leadership is creative leadership.

Interesting for leaders at all levels of the organization, especially if you are proactively unlearning the command-and-control management style.  To quote:

 

"So how does one practice collaborative leadership? At the very basic level, collaborative leaders transcend their own parochial agendas and craft a unity of purpose that brings people together."

Counterfeit Leadership

Counterfeit Leadership | Global Leadership Coaching by Equanimity Executive | Scoop.it

Do you value integrity? Counterfeit leaders turn a blind eye to unethical behavior. To them, it’s not how you play the game; it’s all about winning.

 

Many leaders cause irreparable damage. They’re afraid to address difficult issues, make tough decisions, and introduce change to achieve long-term success.

Be more like Zeus: learn the art of covert leadership - AMA Shift

Be more like Zeus: learn the art of covert leadership - AMA Shift | Global Leadership Coaching by Equanimity Executive | Scoop.it

Learn to watch and wait
Take a simple staff meeting for example, and start by asking yourself, “WWZD?” (What Would Zeus Do?) When the group gets stuck on some issue, as they invariably do, first wait to see if they can solve it themselves. Don’t jump in and take over. If they are truly stymied, offer a useful suggestion, tell a story that illustrates your point, or provide an idea that is perhaps unusual, but only after you’ve given them time to come up with a solution first. If they can’t, then you can offer your thoughts.

Caffeine: The Silent Killer of Emotional Intelligence

Caffeine: The Silent Killer of Emotional Intelligence | Global Leadership Coaching by Equanimity Executive | Scoop.it
Today's tip for increasing your emotional intelligence is the most simple and straightforward you're ever going to get. For many people, this tip has the potential to have a bigger impact upon their emotional intelligence (EQ) than any other.

 

Today’s tip for increasing your emotional intelligence is the most simple and straightforward you’re ever going to get. For many people, this tip has the potential to have a bigger impact upon their emotional intelligence (EQ) than any other. The catch? You have to cut down on caffeine, and as any caffeine drinker can attest, this is easier said than done.

 

The Good: Isn’t Really Good

 

Most people start drinking caffeine because it makes them feel more alert and improves their mood. Many studies suggest that caffeine actually improves cognitive task performance (memory, attention span, etc.) in the short-term. Unfortunately, these studies fail to consider the participants’ caffeine habits. New research from Johns Hopkins Medical School shows that performance increases due to caffeine intake are the result of caffeine drinkers experiencing a short-term reversal of caffeine withdrawal. By controlling for caffeine use in study participants, John Hopkins researchers found that caffeine-related performance improvement is nonexistent without caffeine withdrawal.

True Leaders Create Conversations Around Core Ideas, Agendas  & Solutions | Global Leadership Coaching by Equanimity Executive | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Eric Fletcher he says:

 

"Leaders encourage dialogue and collaboration, leading to the identification of common experiences and shared aspirations"

 

Here are the highlights:

 

**Real leadership, in any venue, brings perspective, dialogue and collaboration in measure equal to or greater than individual conviction.

 

**while the dialogue may be disconcerting at times, the progress of a team, an enterprise or any diverse community depends on the honest dialogue and collaborative spirit that leads to the identification of common ground.

 

**Perhaps even shared experiences and unifying aspirations.

in search of leadership that will make a difference?

 

**Don’t be seduced by charisma. Find someone unafraid of the tough conversations, skilled as a listener, and relentless in the pursuit of dialogue.
