Luke Williams: Ideas Are the Recipes - Ted Talks - Inspiring!!

Many of us are preoccupied with the present, trying to figure out how to make sense of all the chaos and changes going on in the marketplace today.

 

There is light at the end of the tunnel. We just have to be comfortable with change and ambiguity for the moment.

 

There are those rare people among us who hold up the light, who articulate things that make you think or have that aha moment.

 

Luke Williams authored the provocative and brilliant

"Disrupt: Think the Unthinkable to Spark Transformation in your Business”. He is one of my favorite people. He  inspires me and makes me look at things in a completely different way, often stretching me way out of my comfort zone.

 

Thank you Luke, for your continuing contribution to the business community.

 

Luke Williams is a leading consultant, author, educator and speaker, who specializes in disruptive thinking and innovation strategy.

Key Leadership Question: Do You Make Yourself Better? | Thin Difference | Leader review | Scoop.it

"Key question from Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit: Do you make yourself better? It is about self-leadership."

 

"We need to lean in and improve ourselves. It is the greatest challenge we need to address. We need to:

 

- Read to learn, adapt, adopt, and augment.

- Attend conferences to absorb, adjust, and act anew.

- Engage in conversations to be held accountable and grow in understanding.

- Reflect on our actions, our work, our relationships, and our leadership. From self-reflection, ensure we are on the right paths, making the right choices and doing things in the right way. If not, change.

Ten Things They Don't Tell You In Business School - Forbes

Ten Things They Don't Tell You In Business School - Forbes | Leader review | Scoop.it

At many business schools, boot-camp week–where the unwashed get a taste of debits, credits and such–starts in less than a month. After that, and just beneath the throb of your hangover (a B-school accessory), you will detect another inexorable rhythm–a faint ticking to be precise. This is the tell-tale heart to your two-year, $100,000 investment. The relentless reminder that you better get to learnin’ (or at least networking), lest you end up working for, and maybe getting laid off by, one of your classmates one day.

Strong Leaders Establish Trust

Strong Leaders Establish Trust | Leader review | Scoop.it

"Trust is a privilege, not a right. It's earned, not assumed. If you pay suppliers late, drive too hard a bargain, over-work and underpay your workforce, then you shouldn't be too confident of anyone's trust. If you treat everyone who connects your business with respect, you stand a far better chance. Think of it as an investment: The more you put in, the more you get back."

Forgive and Remember: How a Good Boss Responds to Mistakes

Forgive and Remember: How a Good Boss Responds to Mistakes | Leader review | Scoop.it

Failure is inevitable, so the key to success is to be good at learning from it. The ability to capitalize on hard-won experience is a hallmark of the greatest organizations — the ones that are most adept at turning knowledge into action, that are best at developing and implementing creative ideas, that engage in evidence-based (rather than faith- or fear-based) management, and that are populated with the best bosses.

 

Failure instructs. In fact, there is no learning without failure — and this includes failing at dangerous things like surgery and flying planes. Discovery of the moves that work well is always accompanied by discovery of moves that don't.

10 Ways You Can Be Mean to Yourself (and Prevent Your Own Happiness)

10 Ways You Can Be Mean to Yourself (and Prevent Your Own Happiness) | Leader review | Scoop.it

No wonder many of us are not happy; sometimes we bring our misery on to ourselves by being mean to ourselves and not letting ourselves be happy and free.

 

I was catching up with my friend the other day – it took us 6 weeks to find a time to meet. I had nothing to do and flexible with my time as I was not working and spend my days recuperating. However, she was either travelling for work, or in the office slaving through projects. Then when she had time she would attend birthday dinners and farewell parties and other invitations. It seemed she never had a moment where she could decide what to do – she was always obliged to do something else or be somewhere for somebody else.

 

I was enlightened after our “catch up” coffee, which she had to cut short too because work called her and she went back to the office on a Sunday afternoon.

 

We are quite mean to ourselves without knowing.
