Every Leader Is an Artist

Every Leader Is an Artist | Systems Leadership | Scoop.it
What defines greatness in the arts applies equally to leadership.
David Phillips's insight:

The same attributes that distinguish great from mediocre artists distinguish exceptional leaders from their ordinary counterparts. The best leaders and artists give us perspective on our social condition (good or bad) and greater appreciation of our world, ourselves, and our choices. Moreover, they challenge, excite, comfort, and motivate. They bring us closer together by providing a forum for shared experiences and by forging a sense of community. Leadership and art both animate social encounters. They can change our lives in ways that are as invigorating and real as being hit by a wave.

David Phillips's insight:

There are an increasing number of companies emphasizing mindfulness. This isn't really something new age, it is learning to mediate and live in the moment. It relaxes the mind and body and helps with stress.

Why Confusion Can Be a Good Thing | MindShift

Why Confusion Can Be a Good Thing | MindShift | Systems Leadership | Scoop.it

"We all know that confusion doesn't feel good. Because it seems like an obstacle to learning, we try to arrange educational experiences and training sessions so that learners will encounter as little confusion as possible. But as is so often the case when it comes to learning, our intuitions here are exactly wrong."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 18, 2013 9:27 PM

So creating confusion is good? Why? It turns out that "brain is a pattern-recognition machine." It wants to find connections between "related events or artifacts." To do this we must allow our brain to experience "that confused, confounded feeling...—for two reasons."

For the first reason ask yourself is there only one way to solve a problem, or should one "explore a wide variety of potential explanations"? The second reason is that if we feel confused, not sure of the answer, we are more driven to figure it out. 

So how can we do this? There are three ways that researchers have "induced confusion" and each is listed with an explanation. The three ways:

* Expose yourself to confusing materials.

* Withhold the answers from yourself.

* Test yourself before you learn.

This post provides some great ideas on why confusion is good. You will also find a link to the three research studies mentioned in the article. 

Audrey's comment, February 19, 2013 3:00 PM
This idea is very Piagetian: An example of confusion would be disequilibrium. It is at this point that you will begin to master something which you found difficult, or was confused about. So at the point of confusion or disequlibrium you must distance yourself from the problem and return to it later. Your brain will have absorbed the material and worked it out. You are now at the stage of equilibrium.

Nine Practices To Help You Say No | CEO.com

Nine Practices To Help You Say No | CEO.com | Systems Leadership | Scoop.it
David Phillips's insight:

Three that struck me...

 

Establish a pre-emptive no. We all have certain people in our lives who tend to make repeated, sometimes burdensome requests of us. In those cases, it’s better to say no before the request even comes in. Let that person know that you’re hyper-focused on a couple of things in your life and trying to reduce your obligations in all other areas. If it’s your boss who tends to make the requests, agree upfront with her about where you should be spending your time. Then, when the requests come in, you can refer to your earlier conversation.Be prepared to miss out. Some of us have a hard time saying no because we hate to miss an opportunity. And saying no always leads to a missed opportunity. But it’s not just a missed opportunity; it’s a tradeoff. Remind yourself that when you’re saying no to the request, you are simultaneously saying yes to something you value more than the request. Both are opportunities. You’re just choosing one over the other.Gather your courage. If you’re someone who is used to saying yes, it will take courage to say no, especially if the person asking doesn’t give up easily. You may feel like a bad friend. You might feel like you’re letting someone down or not living up to expectations. Maybe you’ll imagine that you’ll be seen or talked about in a negative light. Those things might be the cost of reclaiming your life. You’ll need courage to put up with them.
