 Yes, innovation depends on bold entrepreneurship. But the entity that takes the boldest risks and achieves the biggest breakthroughs is not the private sector; it is the much-maligned state.

 In our complex, fast-changing knowledge economy, this ability to manage one’s thoughts and feelings is essential to business success. Effective leaders don’t buy into or try to suppress their inner experiences. Instead they approach them in a mindful, values-driven, and productive way—developing emotional agility.

Melissa St Hill's curator insight, October 14, 2013 6:22 AM

Quite an interesting article - I like it... Might be food for thought - I need someone to keep me grounded as I have quite a fiery nature - a lot of "emotional passion" within the workplace when things aren't going quite right - and the opposite always gets me back on track - Nadia Edwards-Dashti at Harrington Starr being my opposite - works VERY well -so I am in full agreement.

 

Does it work for you? Who is your opposite within the workplace that works well with you and how much more productive do they/can they  make you?

 

Also food for thought for hiring managers to ensure there is a perfect synergy within the team. Opposite always attract…

Excellent scoop!  Relevant and significant. 

 

From the article:

 

I would submit we find ourselves at a very similar crossroads today. We are still in need of hope and change – we are still in a crisis of leadership.


~Some of the actors may have changed seats, but the cast remains the same.


This is not a democrat versus republican issue or a liberal versus conservative issue. The issue is one that extends beyond parties, philosophies and geographic boarders.


~The issue is simply this; we have forgotten what leadership looks like.

Citation: "Let us be clear: No human group can survive, let alone effectively cooperate, without being able to develop a shared outlook on the world which is the precondition for acting together. But it is also the case that social groups thrive by making room for plurality, dissenting voices, and different perspectives."

New Cognitive Training Study Takes on the Critics | Beautiful Minds, Scientific American Blog Network

New Cognitive Training Study Takes on the Critics | Beautiful Minds, Scientific American Blog Network | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

"The most consistent and least controversial finding in the literature is that working memory training programs produce reliable short-term improvements in both verbal and visuospatial working memory skills. On average, the effect sizes range from moderate to large, although the long-term sustainability of these effects is much more ambiguous. These effects are called near transfer effects, because they don’t transfer very far beyond the trained domain of cognitive functioning.

What are far more controversial (and far more interesting) are far transfer effects. One particular class of far transfer effects that cognitive psychologists are particularly interested in are those that show increases in fluid intelligence: the deliberate but flexible control of attention to solve novel “on the spot” problems that cannot be perfomed by relying exclusively on previously learned habits, schemas, and scripts."

A cornerstone of infotention is that attention and cognitive skills can be improved through training. Most research into this claim is recent, and as with all scientific research, there is some controversy. This article provides a good mary sof recent research that appears to support the efficacy of "brain training."

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, October 12, 2013 4:02 AM

This is an additional view of "fluid intelligence" along with Gardner's multiple intelligences.  Many theories that considers a "far transfer effects" are related to Krashen's Input Hypothesis, i+1 and Affective Filter Hypothesis. Dr. Krashen's theories are based in language acquistion but I consider them more in regards to learning and cognitive training.

Linus J Fernandes's curator insight, October 17, 2013 5:58 AM
"credibility is the outcome of countless actions. It is the result of the combination of what team leaders do (i.e. their behaviours) and how they do it (their attitudes); in other words, how they work and interact with several key actors, not only the team members (players and staff, in our case)."
AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 17, 2013 6:05 AM

Fantastic scoop Roger!  I love the visual AND the material!!

 

Here is one of my favorite sections form the article:

 

“We propose an original model that places particular emphasis on the team leader’s ability to create his/her personal credibility with multiple stakeholders at different levels.”

 

Credibility for team performance


In our research, we find that this credibility derives from several attributes. Every coach has a personal notion of what it means to be credible and how to act, in concrete terms, to be seen as credible. Yet despite these subjective interpretations of the concept of credibility, certain components emerged time and time again.

 

Credibility derives from several perceptions that followers develop toward the team leader. The most frequently cited perceptions are:

 

~Technical competency, which is normally seen as essential, but not sufficient, to be considered credible;
 

~Energy, often associated with the outcome of both enthusiasm and passion;

~ Fairness, which can be seen as a combination of sincerity, spontaneity, and good ethics;


~Consistency of actions and underlying principles across time and situations.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 17, 2013 7:56 AM

(From the article): Successful leadership models in sports can be used in business contexts. The greater the similarity between the specific sports and business teams the more expedient this transposition will be. Managers should think carefully about which particular sport would best serve as their model.

Great article about what really motivates employees.  Money is great, but it doesn't get at the most basic of human needs: significance, love/connection, certainty, and variety.  If leaders could build organizations that try to meet these basic human needs not only with employes but customers too, just think what can be done.   That would be an organization that would be both profitable and sustainable.  It would be an agent of change for good in the world.

(From the article) : There two main ways in which leaders wear masks. Some conceal their perceived inadequacies and flaws behind the polished facade we have come to expect of “great” leaders, a bit like the Phantom from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s epic musical The Phantom of the Opera. Others take on a new persona at work that they feel is necessary for success, much like Jim Carrey’s character Stanley Ipkiss in the movie The Mask, who transforms into a flamboyant green superhero. Both types of mask undermine trust and effectiveness. They also create inner conflict, as leaders struggle to align their work and home lives.
