“Success is the ability to go from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

- Winston Churchill

slide25
10
  • Ability to seed, nurture and grow shared assets that can benefit all – and allow competition at a higher level
  • Create places and situations within which collaboration and mutual success can occur; we’re all stronger when connected
  • Give things away in thoughtful ways where you will get even more back over a designated time
slide29
Hang out with “makers”
  • Do a craft project
  • Take up a new hobby
  • Take something apart
  • Diagram processes (and then make them better)
slide30
Think about success (and “less success”) when communicating – what was different? Get feedback
  • Articulate your own or your organization’s mission in one sentence
  • Read about successful leaders
  • Practice “plain speak”
  • Practice giving “what” but not “how” when assigning work
slide31
Practice spotting problems versus dilemmas
  • Practice not rushing to solutions

  • Read the latest thinking on conflict and anger management
slide35
Get (honest) feedback on your level of integrity and transparency in communicating
  • Think about your level of need for recognition
  • Think about who you consider humble and why (and the reverse)
  • Before delivering a message – what else can be shared? What else would you want to know?
slide36
Do things you don’t understand or aren’t good at
  • Look back at failures – what could you have learned from them?
  • Practice rapid problem solving

  • Avoid “not invented here” thinking
  • Practice using different communication media
  • Join a committee
slide38
Give away information or ideas (personally)
  • Consider how your organization can thoughtfully “give to get”
  • Think about where problems are being solved individually – might a “commons” approach be more effective?
slide39
