5 Ways to Be More Adaptive in the 21st Century

5 Ways to Be More Adaptive in the 21st Century | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal explains how to be fast--and smart--about the way that you act.

 

For decades, the principles of efficiency were taught in business schools, and businesses thrived because of it, McChrystal says. But with more information being shared at greater speeds, even the most efficient organization these days can’t keep up.

 

The secret to success is adaptability, he says. You've got to be smarter--and faster--about the way you react, especially in today's world. With that in mind, here are five ways to get your team focused.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

30 Ways to Inspire Divergent Thinking - InformED

30 Ways to Inspire Divergent Thinking - InformED | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

"When we stop talking about creativity and innovation in abstract terms and start thinking about how they originate, we get divergent thinking. Divergent thinking is more than thinking outside the box; it’s thinking without the box, and imposing structure later."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 9, 8:13 PM

Why is divergent thinking important in education, and how can we inspire our students to become divergent thinkers? This post explores this idea, beginning with a definition of divergent thinking and providing a look at current research on divergent thinking.

Did you know that divergent thinking "stems from logical, unbiased thinking" or that divergent thinking "leads to positive mood swings while convergent thinking leads to negative mood swings." After this discussion (and there is much more in the post) you will find 30 tips on how to teach your students to become divergent thinkers. A few of the tips are below.

* Fast, frequent failures (with the suggestion that students quickly lay out all possible solutions). Identifying mistakes helps to lead to the students to the correct solution.

* Google - Today students like to Google the answer...but what if you create questions that require deeper thinking, where Google will not supply an answer quickly.

Many more ideas are available in the post. Click through to read more.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. They must evaluate how their leadership brand is being perceived by others and whether or not it has grown tired and requires a tune-up.  Leaders must take pause and reach out to those before them who have already lived the situations they are about to experience themselves – and embrace these perspectives as nuggets of wisdom in preparation for what lies ahead of them.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

 

#leadership #management #business

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 9:14 AM

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. 

 

 

(From the article): As leaders, you must begin to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to see the opportunities previous unseen.   Leadership requires you to have circular vision and when you begin to grow complacent, you only see the obvious details before you – rather than those they lie around, beneath and beyond what you seek.  In fact, your mindset becomes stagnate because you are not stretching your perspectives enough to see more than you want to.

 

When you fall into this trap, it’s time to reshuffle the deck, and map out the internal and external factors that are influencing your thinking. You must begin to identify areas that can be improved –  such as relationships, workshop culture, networking, how you are investing in yourself (or lack thereof), etc.

 

It’s not experience, but rather opportunity that is the true mother of success.   Be more mindful about how you manage opportunity before it begins to manage you.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 10:41 AM

The first lesson is a good place to begin. We become so busy we do not look up and from side-to-side. Leaders need to be present and aware of what is happening and not happening. They need to be aware of who is best served to take the reins in a given situation.

 

In School, leadership and management should be intertwined. Quite often, I found that the latter was used almost exclusively and leadership did not exist.

Whether CEO narcissism can be moderated over time by this self-awareness is yet to be proven.

Empathy and Good Managers

Empathy and Good Managers | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

The traditional view of management is to drive results at all costs. Be hard on employees and they will perform. That employees’ personal lives don't matter, as they have nothing to do with work. Yet we know today that employees’ personal and professional lives do collide. Today’s workplace environment calls for an evolved way of management and of leadership. Today’s managers need to tap into other motivators to get results and inspire the best performance from employees.
