How scary is that. But I believe it. Leadership can be asleep at the wheel and not even realize that their people are don't care. Their is a huge disconnect between what leadership things is happening and what is really happening. The #1 reason people dis-engage is when they loose their faith in management. Leadership needs to communicate a compelling vision, connect with their team and recognize the behaviours and results they want.

How a leader deals with pressure will tell you much about who they are as a person. Their reaction to pressure will reveal the strength of their character and conviction, what and whom they value, and whether or not they can be trusted. The reality is most people buckle under pressure. Only a few handle pressure well, and even fewer possess the qualities to be able to thrive on pressure.

The Art of Observation and How to Master the Crucial Difference Between Observation and Intuition | Brain Pickings

The Art of Observation and How to Master the Crucial Difference Between Observation and Intuition | Brain Pickings | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

By Maria Popova

 

:"“In the field of observation,” legendary disease prevention pioneer Louis Pasteur famously proclaimed in 1854, “chance favors only the prepared mind.” “Knowledge comes form noticing resemblances and recurrences in the events that happen around us,” neuroscience godfather Wilfred Trotter asserted. That keen observation is what transmutes information into knowledge is indisputable — look no further than Sherlock Holmes and his exquisite mindfulnessfor a proof — but how, exactly, does one cultivate that critical faculty?

 

"From The Art of Scientific Investigation (public library; public domain) by Cambridge University animal pathology professor W. I. B. Beveridge — the same fantastic 1957 compendium that explored the role of the intuition and imagination in science and how serendipity and “chance opportunism” fuel discovery — comes a timeless meditation on the art of observation, which he insists “is not passively watching but is an active mental process,” and the importance of distinguishing it from what we call intuition."
