As we frequently talk about with our clients and in our posts, personal and professional development are key to growing into strong leaders ready for the challenges of tomorrow. Approaching development from the perspective of a student of leadership as an art and science is an effective way to absorb new ideas and incorporate them into your leadership philosophy and style. This kind of development can be difficult to do on your own if you don’t have a group of other leaders to discuss and debate with. We want to help build a strong community of leaders who have a forum to discuss the ideas that are on their minds. This month we will be discussing storytelling as a method of communication to those we lead and others around us.
Finding New Opportunities – Using a Blue Ocean Strategy
Life in the 21st century has taught us that doing the same old things the same way we’ve always done them is not a solid strategy for success. Leadership in the digital age is going to revolve around finding new opportunities and pursuing them before others recognize them. In Blue Ocean Strategy, W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne show us how to create new opportunities that others haven’t seen yet. Recognizing new, fertile ground for ideas isn’t just for marketers or startups, leaders in any discipline can benefit from learning skills for finding new opportunities. Join us on Blab on November 6, 2015 at 10 AM Pacific time to discuss how we can all benefit as leaders from the lessons provided in this book.
