Excerpt from the article: 


"Management is a set of processes that keep an organisation functioning. They make it work today – they make it hit this quarter's numbers. The processes are about planning, budgeting, staffing, clarifying jobs, measuring performance, and problem-solving when results did not go to plan."


Leadership is very different. "It is about aligning people to the vision, that means buy-in and communication, motivation and inspiration."

For a leader – or anyone else who wants to succeed at hiring and retaining the very best talent – listening is a crucial skill. Because when you tune the wrong people and information out, you’re depriving yourself of priceless tools that will enable you to take your career, and life, to new levels of workplace fulfillment, reward and fun.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, August 10, 2013 9:14 AM

"You won’t find these functions described in job descriptions, nor will you find someone with a title like “risk-taker.”  You won’t find these roles being incentivized, or formally evaluated or even recognized, as a rule.   Like many aspects of an innovation culture, they happen – serendipitously – or they don’t.  And because the roles are elusive and difficult to measure, they can go unappreciated and unnoticed.  And then they gradually fade away.

 

But if you look hard in your organization, trust your own judgment, and use your best observational skills, you can find, nurture, and acknowledge these key individuals and keep their critical skill sets alive . . . and growing."

Does group brainstorming work? This post looks at this issue, working from an infographic and selecting key concepts in the infographic and expanding on them. Gleeson begins by discussing "the five biggest problems with Groupthink." The list is below and all are explained in the post. Please note that there the author of the infographic also explains their perception of what each of the phrases below means.

* Social Loafing

* Social Matching

* Production Blocking

* Lack of Attention

* Fear of Criticism or Rejection

Gleeson then provides a list of tips for effective brainstorming (again, this are listed in the infographic with definitions provided). The areas explored here are:

* Independently prepare

* Set a goal

* Have meeting facilitators

* Avoid criticism

* Encourage competition

* Try collaborative apps

In education we often ask our learners to brainstorm. This article and infographic provide some insights that you may not have considered in the past. To go directly to the infographic (in which case you will not see the post by Gleeson)

 https://www.mavenlink.com/community/blogs/713-are-we-brainstorming-the-wrong-way--. 

There are also a number of free collaborative tools that support brainstorming. One of the more robust tools that is free to schools is LucidChart.
