Must Leaders Have Original Thoughts?
In our last Conversation On Leadership, we had a dialog about Original Thought, what it was and how it impacted our lives and effectiveness as Leaders. Rather than having something happen with newscasters giving us their editorial opinions,tweets stating the trends and face book friends that we liked and gave a thumbs up, we spoke about the power of making up our own minds and being intentional about it; creating the new and different even when the mechanisms from here to there were unknown.
In that spirit I offer you a a very entertaining and short video from TEDx Greece “Stepping Forward, A Hero’s Journey”. Dr. Joseph Riggio, the speaker, says we are only using 5% of our brains. He gives counsel on dealing with change. And, he talks about how we were educated and educate our young.
I suggest that leaders create miracles through their original thoughts. Other wise there is no difference made, rather sameness and business as usual. What do you think? View the video and make up your own mind. Don’t take my word for it.
