Confrontation From A Fruit Fly’s Perspective - Advanced Vectors

Confrontation From A Fruit Fly’s Perspective - Advanced Vectors | Living Leadership | Scoop.it
Take a lesson from the tiny fruit-fly and apply it to your interaction within your Team. Camouflage and deception cannot be allowed to become effective blockers to good communication.
Matthew Fritz's insight:
Chances are you know a few G. Tridens in your life: people who have developed unique skills to confuse and intimidate Teammates, into a fight-or-flight mentality (with hopeful-focus on the latter). This is a learned behavior, borne of consequences and observed through modeling. Regardless of the inception, the resulting reaction helps the “human fly” to avoid confrontation and buzz-off to safer environments of their own choosing. Twitter: @fritzmt

John Michel's curator insight, December 11, 2013 11:15 AM

Leaders find it necessary to confront poor behavior when it happens, if only to prevent poor modeling from becoming a repeatable trend within the Team.

Dreams Can Change the World - General Leadership

Dreams Can Change the World - General Leadership | Living Leadership | Scoop.it
As we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday today, let us honor his legacy and consider how we might lead within our own world.
Matthew Fritz's insight:
Few people–even the greatest among us–start out with the intention of changing the world with their ideas. Most simply want to change their ecosystem…then the dream grows wings and the idea takes hold. Why is that? Quite simply, we often find that our best ideas are shared. Shared ideas ignite passion and motivate involvement. Such can be said for the ideas, passion and motivation of Dr. King–a systems thinker who worked through boundaries, walls and ceilings to advocate for a better world. As we celebrate Dr. King’s birthday today, let us honor his legacy and consider how we might lead within our own world: our homes, our churches, our schools, and our communities. Let us also consider how our idea–no matter how humble the roots–might take hold and inspire change beyond our imagination!

Bullying - The Dynamics - Leadership Development

Bullying - The Dynamics - Leadership Development | Living Leadership | Scoop.it
I don't think I have ever been in a work situation where there has not been at least some discussion about whether behaviours can be construed as bullying
Matthew Fritz's insight:

Great insight from friend, Christina Lattimer, on a subject very seldom discussed: adult bullying.  All too often, we look the other way when we witness this poor display of interpersonal behavior only to find ourselves feeling regret for inaction, or worse--on the receiving end someday.  Be a better wingman, teammate, co-worker and bystander by intervening appropriately and making a stand for professional behavior.

Innovation Lessons from the Battlefield to the Boardroom

Innovation Lessons from the Battlefield to the Boardroom | Living Leadership | Scoop.it

Innovating in Afghanistan certainly brings new meaning to the corporate term “change or die”. Over the course of the project, Col. Fritz had to resolve vast technological limitations and overcome cultural and language barriers. Together, he and his team synchronized the activities of 16 nations, spread across six geographical locations within Afghanistan, to build air power capability and ensure security for the country’s future.

The colonel, who in his spare time curates a blog at GeneralLeadership.com and tweets management insight from his(@fritzmt account to 95,000+ Twitter followers insists that lessons gained on the battlefield have many applications in the boardroom.
