Why Grumpy People Can Be Super Productive

Why Grumpy People Can Be Super Productive | Leadership and Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

"When we say that we're "waiting for the right time" to start on something, we tend to mean that we want to feel good about what we're doing--but new research suggests that a pinch of negativity can actually be a creative spark.

How so? Creativity, as we know, is both an emotional and intellectual process: Psychologists have found that positive emotions open up your inventory of possible actions--one of the many reasons that it's good to feel good. But, as new research in the Academy of Management Journal suggests, it's good to feel bad, too--depending on how you roll through the day."

We do have a leadership crisis as this article points out. What does it mean to manage? We have to be careful. Do we want leadership or management? Both are necessary, but serve different purposes.

Amazon.com: The Will to Lead: Running a Business With a Network of Leaders (9780875847580): Marvin Bower: Books

The Will to Lead: Running a Business With a Network of Leaders

~ Marvin Bower (author) More about this product
List Price: $35.00
Price: $25.32
You Save: $9.68 (28%)
Drawing on over 60 years of experience at McKinsey & Co., Bower sets forth his vision of what's needed to lead people to work together effectively, efficiently, and enthusiastically. While the command-and-control style of leadership once contributed to the building of America's might, Bower argues it is no longer the best system for today's intensely competitive global marketplace. People down the line don't like the system and don't do their best work under it. Moreover, command-and-control management breeds rigidity and excessive reliance on authority. Bower urges companies to shift away from managing through authority and hierarchy to running a business with a network of leaders and leadership teams scattered strategically throughout the business. He describes the factors in designing a leadership company and explains how leadership can be learned on the job. Bower weaves in personal experiences from his own learning journey as he reflects on the implications for future leaders.
