How often have you had to fight battles with people that are on the same team or even the same payroll as you - so that you could serve your shared customer?

Chery Gegelman's insight:

A true story about organizations that were legally required to work together, but their leaders built walls and encouraged division.


Which impacted their employees, their resources, their customers and their results - in a not so positive way!

 

How often have you had to fight battles with people that are on the same team or even the same payroll as you - so that you could serve your shared customer?

A Character-Based Leadership Manifesto

A Character-Based Leadership Manifesto | Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership decisions that make my blood boil. People I am currently serving […]

Why Curious People Are Destined for the C-Suite

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 12, 2015 7:47 AM

According to the 2015 PwC survey, including responses from more than a thousand CEOs, a number cited “curiosity” and “open-mindedness” as leadership traits that are becoming increasingly critical in challenging times.

Michelle Cubas's curator insight, September 24, 2015 4:45 PM

A key coaching element is to remain curious when working with clients. This is a tip for leaders who want to remain present as well. Rather than preparing a thought to make a comment, being curious about others is a tremendous fact-finding tool. Use this while networking also—It puts the emphasis on the other person & reduces personal anxiety. Go for it!

Cécile Lemoine's curator insight, October 3, 2015 3:31 AM

Cela a toujours été vrai, mais le défi de la curiosité est plus grand aujourd'hui avec un accès à une telle multitude de domaines... Une compétence clé est aussi la vision systémique pour faire des liens inédits entre des domaines différents.

“Imagine that you met a remarkable person who could look at the sun or the stars and, amazingly, state the exact time an date. Wouldn’t it be even more amazing still if, instead of telling the time, that person built a clock that could tell the time forever, even after he or she were dead and gone?” – Jim Collins, Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies

This graphic is always a good reminder for teachers. The world as we understand it and encounter it is quite different than the world encountered by others.

Chery Gegelman's insight:

I absolutely agree with the quote below from Craig Malkin PhD, 


"Please, for everyone's sake, stop making politicians worried, on either side, that changing their minds when they have new information will be viewed as a weakness. Ditch the reflexive and empty attacks on "flip-flopping." When someone gives careful reasoning behind changing their position, it's not weakness; it's strength. It's called thinking." 

However, when people flip-flop because they haven't done their homework, and are simply avoiding conflict they create chaos and confusion.  

The post below was written to encourage you to take a close look and decide.  Wise Leader or Flip-Flopper?
