As leaders, we have to understand where our efforts are needed, required, and to what level. Which is why leadership is as much an art as it is a science.

J Scot Heathman's insight:

   Years ago an elementary school teacher chose to make a special video to share with her first-grade class. The video was shot in a school playroom filled with toys young kids absolutely love. One of the toys was an inflated Bobo the Clown doll, a long-time favorite with the children, which stood almost as tall as the first graders themselves. Next to Bobo was a large plastic baseball bat.

   During one of her lunch hours, the teacher filmed one particular little boy in the playroom who was having fun with Bobo. In fact, she made it a point to encourage the little boy to use the plastic bat to inflict some serious damage to the unsuspecting (and innocent, I might add) plastic clown. So the little boy gladly obliged and began whacking Mr. Bobo like it was a professional baseball homerun derby.

   Bobo proceeded to have a bad day. The little boy had a great time. And the teacher got it all on film.

   Now here’s where things get really interesting.

John Michel's curator insight, January 22, 2013 7:59 PM

An absolutely superb read relaying how the innovative leadership that is needed in combat by Navy SEALS and others is not unlike the innovation that is needed on the field in any sport when the game plan goes awry.  How well the team innovates when they’re in trouble is largely a function of HOW the team has trained together – how well and how hard, and how creatively.


Organizational innovation, on the other hand, is a different matter entirely, and requires leaders who foster idealism and thinking beyond the boundaries of their own comfort zone. People have to trust their leader to be willing to go there.  That’s the lesson of the SEALS . . . when things appear to be out of control, look for the patterns and opportunities; then lead others to those opportunities.
