The Evolution of Leadership
Equal, different, vital. To achieve true creativity, you need to work against homogeneity of thinking. Diversity of status, views, and identity are all necessary to get the most innovative ideas and best possible results.
This recognition lines up with a broader, historical evolution of leadership. Riding on the civil rights, equal rights, and gay rights movements, self-expression is now seen as a critical value in the workplace. It is also an unharnessed form of leadership. Simultaneous Leadership™ capitalizes on self-expression and diverse perspectives to elicit richer contributions from group members as well as more honest listening from decision-makers. These practices build trust and engagement, which in turn deliver results.
