Why

"Leaders traffic in idea creation - the best leaders I know are ferociously disciplined about seeking them out and incredibly committed to stewarding them well"Axiom

I'm always amazed at the way fresh innovative ideas emerge as a result of colleagues brainstorming around a topic of shared passion..... ideas that none of us originally had but have been born out of our conversation......the cross over of diverse perspectives with innovative possibilities as the result....  

I am convinced its these fresh ideas that are essential to harness so we can collectively make positive changes in our communities and organisations... 

....hence this blog to leverage the same process, a chance to put some ideas out there around leadership, change and innovation...... 


          ...provoking fresh thinking...

                 ...enabling the emergence of innovative ways of leading...
                       ...connecting people seeking to stretch their thinking and practice...
                             ...igniting vision and courageous bold moves...
                                     ...exploring organisational change through complexity thinking

Basically....idea creation!


So please have a browse through the resources on this site, read some of the posts and flick me an email on chris@leadershiplab.co.nz if you would like to create some ideas... 

Cheers

  1. The notion of adaptive leadership is particularly relevant when choosing to create positive changes and being innovative, in response to challenges, within communities (of learners). It would be easy to consider the stages of adaptation as just that - stages or a process i.e. hunker down or press reset, foster adaptation, embrace disequilibrium, generate leadership, and taking care of yourself (Heifetz et al). Some recent work done by Royce Holladay with the Human Systems Dynamics Institute around adaptive leadership patterns, resonated with me, and I think takes adaptive leadership to another level in that it really does focus on the humanity and empathy required to connect people, and support them through courageous times. Patterns of leadership within being adaptive include: building professional efficacy, understanding systems at all levels, treating individuals with respect, establishing collaborative, robust networks, create useful & ethical decisions. All within an inquiry framework. Perfect incubator for "idea creations"!!! Awesome stuff Chris to create this blog. Craig McDowell
