Whole Brain Leader™
Leaders navigate unpredictable terrain – the known and knowable world has largely given way to the complex and chaotic. This is the terrain of the Whole Brain Leader™. An increasingly complex challenge demands a response that is both strongly analytical and highly creative. Linear problem-solving is not enough. Integration of left and right brain is essential.
Whole Brain Leaders™ can be deliberately and purposefully developed. Leaders must move beyond technical skill, build interpersonal strength, and ultimately operate with confidence in the conceptual and creative realms. The enterprise that commits to this development generates powerful results for leader, team, and enterprise.
Effective development meets leaders where they are on the Leader Life Cycle™. The emerging-to-experienced leader relies on knowing and doing. The primary need is a more powerful toolbox, used with greater assurance and self-awareness. The experienced-to-seasoned leader relies on being. The primary need is deeper understanding and development of character.
At every stage of today’s leadership journey, there is need to build and exercise Whole Brain Leader™ capacity. Leaders become open to different ways of knowing/doing/being, learning to incorporate new senses and inputs in service to a creative and sustainable enterprise.
