Be inspired to next Gen leadership development
Jerry Busone's curator insight, January 7, 2016 11:01 PM

"Leadership development should not live in a vacuum; it needs to be directly connected to real business challenges, opportunities, projects and perspectives." To do this requires Sr leaders be engaged in the process of developing leaders from building a bench through their careers as leaders.

Emerging World's curator insight, January 8, 2016 2:11 AM

The authors of this piece make the point that, "individuals are far more motivated and energized when they are connected to a higher purpose and feel they are providing a service to society, their customers and their community"


"This," they argue, "can be achieved by linking service-based activity to the leadership development strategy, allowing leaders to deploy their skills in service of something greater than themselves."


I couldn't agree more.

The Executive Roadmap to Self-Reflection

The Executive Roadmap to Self-Reflection | Executive Coaching | Scoop.it
As stated by Talmud, “We do not see things as they are; but as we are.” This doctrine from the eighth century speaks to our perceptions and questions our ability to understand people and situations accurately.

In a competitive and fluid corporate environment, executives make decisions based on their experiences and ability to navigate complex change situations. But many leaders fail to look through the lens of the opposing viewpoints and limit their decision quality by projecting only their own thoughts, insights and experiences into a situation without acknowledging alternative angles or beliefs. Strategic self-reflection can enable leaders to create a bridge between information and wisdom.

I am a pilgrim on the edge, on the edge of my perception. We are travelers at the edge, we are always at the edge of our perception. ~ Scott Mutter 

The people I know in this impact community often do a great deal for others. As caretakers and as innovators, we need reminders to slow down and also take care of ourselves.  This message is particularly for all my colleagues fostering social innovation. Here are a couple of exercises I hope sharpen your senses and allow you more grace in the midst of the pressure that comes with being change agents.
