If Miles Davis Taught Your Office To Improvise

If Miles Davis Taught Your Office To Improvise | Mentoring & Coaching | Scoop.it

"Nurturing spontaneity, creativity, experimentation, and dynamic synchronization is no longer an optional approach to leadership. It's the only approach. The current velocity of change demands nothing less. It demands paying attention to the mental models, the cultural beliefs and values, the practices and structures that support improvisation.

Following practices can help your organization emulate what happens when jazz bands improvise".

How Children Build the Grit They Need to Succeed in Life

How Children Build the Grit They Need to Succeed in Life | Mentoring & Coaching | Scoop.it

The articles in this section often reference how you interview for "grit" and how to hire people who can learn from failure. but this fascinating article takes it back a step.

 

How do you build grit in children?

 

"The most valuable thing that parents can do to help their children develop character—may be to do nothing. To back off a bit. To let our children face some adversity on their own, to fall down and not be helped back up."

 

"What matters most in a child's development ... is not how much information we can stuff into her brain in the first few years of life. What matters, instead, is whether we are able to help her develop a very different set of qualities, a list that includes persistence, self-control, curiosity, conscientiousness, grit and self-confidence. Economists refer to these as noncognitive skills, psychologists call them personality traits, and the rest of us often think of them as character"

 

 

This is one of the life lessons I look to teach the girls on my HS basketball team. Grit is a great word that describes the ability to get knocked off the horse and get right back in the saddle. It's the ability to deal with adversity, disappointment, setbacks, and all the other traits the author mentions. Years from now my girls will never remember the actual experience of playing basketball = what they will remember is how much this HS sport - their coach - and their teammates taught them about how to deal with all the things life keeps throwing at you and testing your grit.

Leadership Challenges: Embrace paradoxes to move forward

Leadership Challenges: Embrace paradoxes to move forward | Mentoring & Coaching | Scoop.it

"This provocative post highlights current business paradoxes challenging leaders:  change or remain stable, complexity versus simplicity, growth and sustainability and more."

 

After seeing evidence of our increasingly VUCA world, one that is growing in its Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous characteristics, this useful list of paradoxes resonates.  Does it resonate to your experience?

 

___________________________

  

Leaders must find ways to deal with this complexity and embrace and manage it to achieve simplicity.

___________________________

   

 

Excerpted:

  

Paradox 1: growth versus sustainability

Growth as it is currently defined tends to result in an unquestioned and unchecked consumption of resources. Sustainability considerations are generally considered to put a major strain on growth ambitions.

 

The way forward is innovation, but another paradox present itself:

  

Paradox 2: innovating versus operating

Innovation is increasingly about service, process, business model and social innovation.

However, focusing on innovation does not mean ignoring operations. The trick is that what allows operations to thrive can seriously get in the way of innovation and vice versa.

  

Paradox 3:  change versus continuity

If you try to innovate too many things at once you will end up with chaos, if you do not change at all your organisation will decline. What is the right balance?

  

Paradox 4: collaboration versus competition

Business is inherently competitive yet today, collaboration is common, with most companies having collaborated with their suppliers and their customers. Leading companies are promoting collaboration through crowdsourcing or with competitors.

  

Paradox 5: complexity versus simplicity

Demands on leaders result in increasing levels of complexity, arising from the number of possible, unpredictable interactions between collaborate, compete; change, remain stable; innovation or operational excellence; growth or sustainability. Leaders must find ways to deal with this complexity and embrace and manage it to achieve simplicity.

  

Paradox 6: Heart versus mind

Decisions need to be made in the face of incomplete analysis, unpredictable outcomes and changing circumstances. The foundations for analysis and factual arguments differ from emotional and visionary engagement; people who excel at one are not necessarily particularly good at the other and yet both are needed.
