Somewhere along the way, people became convinced that stasis is safer than movement. Consistency feels comfortable; volatility is frightening. Consciously or not, we attempt to protect ourselves against life's volatility by cultivating routine in our lives.
But, in this ever-changing world, we are constantly forced to reinvent ourselves. And this reinvention process by very nature requires an entrepreneurial mindset. Constant reinvention requires:
Driving long-term vision
Creating platforms for growth
Fostering synergistic ecosystems
LEADING & TRANSFORMING IN THE AGE OF CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION
With the cascade of new technologies and social changes, we are constantly challenged to spark creativity, drive innovation, and ensure sustainability. What are the remedies? How do we work with ourselves and others? The newest problems of the world find solutions in the oldest timeless practices like mindfulness, authenticity, and devotion- because everything connects.
Connectivity is a sense of journey, to the sense of purpose it is an individual, lonely pursuit and a collective, companionable one at the same time. Our individual, interpersonal, and organizational working lives all interconnect. By examining these connections, we learn new ways to create, innovate, adapt, and lead.
In this part philosophy, part business, and part history talk, Faisal will cover:
Connecting with Who We Are. Learn how understanding leads to authenticity, mindfulness cultivates authenticity, and how devotion is mindfulness, mindfulness is devotion.
Inspiring and Leading Inside and Outside of our Organizations. How to give people freedom and structure as well as how to curate talent.
Generating Ideas, Grounded Decisions, and Long-Lasting Value. How to promote ideas through curiosity, improve decisions by mapping them, and creating value over the long term.
This isn't just a quick fix for your next financial quarter, or a business plan; this is how you succeed in the long run. It is a systematization of your art, science, business, and spirituality.
WHY LEADERSHIP IS ABOUT POETRY AND PLUMBING
HOW TO INSPIRE AND ENCOURAGE EVERYONE YOU WORK WITH
TRADITIONAL HIERARCHICAL MANAGEMENT STYLE IS DEAD. YOU HAVE AN ALL-STAR TEAM AND VISION FOR MILES - WHAT'S MISSING? BRING YOUR FOCUS BACK TO YOUR PEOPLE'S POTENTIAL WITH THESE TIPS.
Nobody succeeds in a silo. Whatever we venture - personal, professional, philanthropic, political, or private - we must remember the people involved in and essential to our success.
Everything Connects is about lessons in leadership, from how to be more present to how technology is changing our worlds. A standout theme contained in this talk is our treatment of each other as humans - not just as employees, supervisors or CEO - and the success this awareness brings.
Here are five ideas for connecting with the people that make business run.
1. EMPOWER THE INNER VISIONARY
Commitment-oriented companies are proven to be successful because colleagues are treated like family, not cogs in a machine. If we want to cultivate the visionary in others, we need to attend to the whole system surrounding them.
2. LEVERAGE TALENTS
Just as you can't force a flower to grow on a sidewalk, you can't tell someone to be what they aren't when they're in the wrong place. Categorize your organization's needs by what kinds of talent can fill them.
3. ENCOURAGE AMBITION
So you've curated your dream-team of visionaries - but what if they're dreaming of their individual success, instead of the greater good? The idea is that those ambitions are what create connections: when people are working together on projects they want to do, they'll form relationships.
4. POWER INNOVATION
Companies and individuals alike are pushed to reinvent or fizzle out faster than ever. Innovation isn't an option anymore; it's a requirement. Sustained innovation is powered by people who come together to share ideas, compare observations, and brainstorm solutions to complex problems.
5. PRACTICE MINDFULNESS
Rushing from task to task detaches us from our creative potential, the authors say - and isolates us from the people that make our endeavors possible. When we stop being curious, we stop being innovative, create complexity, and ultimately fail.
