This past week I’ve covered Western Canada teaching a “Thinking Outside the Lines for Leaders and Manager’s Course” Creative thinking is a cornerstone to drive the innovation necessary to help companies thrive in an ever changing competitive marketplace.
Authenticity is so crucial for leaders and managers to understand. I love to open up my leadership workshops with the following challenge to the leaders in the room: "You don't control anyone. You can have tremendous influence on those around you by controlling the only person you can which is you" Some people get into trouble by marrying someone for their "potential", thinking they can change them over time. Usually that doesn't turnout well! Great teams don't evolve by changing people. They evolve from creating an environment that motivates them.
