Leading Thoughts for October 6, 2022

Leading Thoughts

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with:

I.

Ronald Heifetz and Marty Linsk on why leadership is dangerous:

“Each day brings you opportunities to raise important questions, speak to higher values, and surface unresolved conflicts. Every day you have the chance to make a difference in the lives of people around you.

And every day, you must decide whether to push your contribution out there, or keep it to yourself to avoid upsetting anyone, and get through another day.

The hope of leadership lies in the capacity to deliver disturbing news and raise difficult questions in a way that people can absorb, prodding them to take up the message rather than ignore it or kill the messenger.”

II.

Anthropologist Grant McCrackenon the need to move things outside of the gravitational field of the corporation:

“If you ideate in the same space as you work in, you are going to come up with the same solutions.”
