Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 12, 2014 1:36 PM

Prepare yourself is a key. Several years ago, I began to meditate in part to let go of the fearful ideas and that I had to control things. Letting go and just being present in meetings made a huge difference. It was like the concept of no-mind from Buddhist and Taoist thinking. It created a space where I could be ready and accept things as they arrived. It helped immensely dealing with the education managers I worked for.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, June 19, 2014 8:11 PM

Feedback is the only way that we can improve, but criticism often means we stop listening.  Some useful hints on how to prepare yourself for feedback, although the better answer is to move the conversation to improvements for the future.

Solenne Tardy's comment, February 17, 2014 4:11 PM
It is a very interesting point of view ! How to manage a creative team ! Today, creativity is really important and every companies need to innovate. But how to find new ideas and get on it or launch as product. This is so true that a leader need to focus the team after a big brainstorming and help colleagues to put all the ideas together to create something. I think for example at Zappos company. The model of work inside is so different from other companies. It is a bit different that what Sam Bacharach said. Someone gets an idea and creates a project. Then everyone who is motivated by the project can join it and so the processus of creation is on. That type of team, work should be more developed in companies, because it works very, very well for Zappos and other creative and innovative companies.
Jordan Arzoine's comment, February 18, 2014 4:14 PM
According to Mr. Bacharach, I think to get a really wired team is not enough to get the best workers in their specialities. Such as in sport, for example in basket ball as a coach, you can have the best by position in your team, if they play individually you will lose against a worst team which plays in group of 5 players. It will be like a team against two or three players : Impossible ! <br><br>It is also the same problematic when one of your employee have a strong leadership in the team by his behaviour or by his results. <br>This behaviour can produce a lack of competence from the other teammates who stay in the shadow of this substituted leader or create a real jealousy.<br><br>Each strengh and weakness of teammates have to be complementary, to form one single entity.<br>I think to optimize the power and the creativity of the team, we have to think like a family, if your team succeed their objectives all the group have to be rewarded and if they don’t the enitre group have to be penalized. <br><br>This group will be and must be heterogeneous if you want to developp the ideas you take such as a leader. For sure the ideas you choose will be in realtion with the company’s needs to avoid the risk of mistake. Nonetheless the goal for this leader will be to gather the divergence of the team, and get only different team ideas and no more different indivual ideas. <br>Meanwhile, you pilot your different teams so as to work on your projects, you have the responsibility to help them to rethink their ideas and see what is wrong or not.<br><br>For sure, they need to get a lot of autonomy but the leader needs to be there to give the main points and the objectives. He has to lead his own teams. <br>through those rethough and refocus ideas until to get enough a basket of realistic ideas.<br>
Imane Ajebli's comment, February 26, 2014 4:06 PM
This article was very interesting because I could relate to it by thinking of the experience I'm having in the firm where I'm doing my internship. This just shows how important is the participative leadership, and how sharing is the key to creating innovation and to building an organisation.<br>Those points are pointed as common mistakes made by companies, but before reading this article I also thought that brainstorming was a good way to help people come up with innovative ideas. But, indeed, this is quite useless if we are still focused on the present system. We tend to keep in mind what we already do, which cannot lead to innovation.<br>Don't we all know that "The customer is king" ? Knowing it is not enough, we have to apply it. Customers are the reason of any organisation living. But when it comes to new ideas and implement new things, we all think first about figures, and tend to forget them. Innovation has to be linked with customers' needs.<br>This article taught me that thinking outside the box and sharing are really important to be innovative.<br>As Dalaï Lama said : "Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality"
