Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity
Complexity, chaos, and ambiguity are aspects of leadership and learning. Without those we cannot innovate and create.

What Is It to Be Intellectually Humble?

What Is It to Be Intellectually Humble? | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

Knowledge comes into us through a variety of channels that can be blocked by our concern for status, and the successful knowledge-seeker will be one who keeps those channels open. The process requires that we be able to “listen,” either literally or figuratively, to what others say. If what they say shows them to be superior to us in knowledge, we will be hampered in our learning if our first reaction is to try to show that we know as much as they or more. The process also requires that we be corrigible, that we be open to the possibility that our opinions are in some way misguided. If, whenever our status as knowers is threatened by the specter of correction, we feel that we must prove ourselves to have been in the right, we will have closed off an avenue of knowledge and crippled ourselves as inquirers. It can be particularly galling, if one lacks intellectual humility, to be corrected in a public forum; and the galling can obstruct the process of learning.

Skepticism begins with our own thinking and ideas.

The most important value for learners is humility, but it should not be considered the only value. Credibility should be held as another value, but also is not the only value of imporance.

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Not long ago, most discussions of leadership were about leaders – their personality traits, how to identify and groom those with ‘leadership potential,’ and what were the skills that leaders employed.

Via Maria Rachelle, Katherine Bryant, Wise Leader™, Jean-Philippe D'HALLUIN
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Trust has been at the heart of leadership. We confuse other things for leading, but, when we look closely, great leaders were trustworthy.

I dont believe it's the new core, it's been there all along, perhaps we are only just taking notice. Do you agree?

Collaboration and Shared Leadership are the norm in schools today. At the base of success with these tools is trust.

Help Wanted: A Politician We Can Trust

It's about how they decide vs. what they decide that counts

Via Sharrock
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

The same points can be made in other countries and jurisdictions i.e. Canada and Alberta. Politics is now ideology which pits people against people. It goes beyond process. We need to have authentic and thoughtful conversations and stop depending on failed and failing institutions. Politics is about people and their relationships, which includes daily life. Education, not School, is a great opportunity for children to learn how to live together.

This article explores a reason we should value transparency, but also, to evaluate the decision-making process that is/was used: "America is plagued by too many people just wanting to know “the bottom line” and whether you’re with them or against them. Having a process, planning, thinking of contingencies seems largely un-American or perhaps we just don’t have the patience for it." Mark Goulston, M.D., F.A.P.A.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

It sound somewhat formulaic. Trust is hard work and hard to retain. It was lacking where I taught.
