Opportunity to Grow

Leaders find opportunity to grow in every example - good, bad or ugly.  They even find opportunities in the challenges others have.

I spent time last week with an individual from an organization called Broken City Labs - a great experience in that while discussing creative communities, I could feel my heart start to beat faster....I realized that I sometimes leave my creativity aside in order to get the job done.  That does not mean I am not doing what I do well, it's simply that there could be more flair or room for collaboration or a different perspective.  Has this ever happened to you?

As leaders, we know things need to happen, we need to develop the team around us....what unconventional and creative ways have you sought to do this?

Today I am providing you with a link that says it all.

Desperately Seeking Simplicity is truly the way 2012 needs to be.  As leaders peel away more obstacles and begin to focus on what they are good at, others will develop around them to pick up where needed.  Whether in government or business or even family and schools, this needs to happen for complex problems to be resolved - the force of simplicity can equal the force of collaboration, creating huge headway in results and people development.

Thanks Chris Zook for the insight and discussion launchpad.
