Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are

Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

As chairman of the Washington Speakers Bureau, Bernie Swain posed one simple question to 100 of the eminent people that his company represents. People like Madeleine Albright, Tom Brokaw, Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw and Condoleezza Rice were asked to identify the one person, event, or influence that made them who they are as a leader and a person.

The overriding lessons from Bernie Swain's questioning is that successful leaders are self-aware. They have an inner voice and pay attention to it. They understand the defining moments of their lives and thereby better understand their own strengths, biases, and weaknesses as leaders.

Responding to Complexity and Uncertainty: The Agile Organisation

Responding to Complexity and Uncertainty: The Agile Organisation | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

Over the past two decades, management consultants and academics at business schools have increasingly stressed what they view as the rapidly increasing levels of complexity and uncertainty in the environment that all organisations have to respond to and many have labelled these conditions ‘ hyper-competition’ or ‘high velocity competition’. To deal with these conditions, consultants and academics have called for organisations to become ‘agile organisations’.

To confuse matters more, the stalwart reference for traditional business thinkers is the Harvard Business Review, which, unfortunately, stands by rational decision making because you can’t control those pesky biases and your unreliable intuition.
