I have encouraged the creation of pace-setting cultures, ones in which people are invited to look for, consider, and try alternatives to the status quo to make mistakes. I have suggested leadership behavior that doesn’t punish people for making mistakes when trying new activities or techniques but honors them for doing so. In such a culture, and in response to that type of leadership, people will try new things, make mistakes, and learn from those mistakes while progressively and continuously improving their performance and their productivity.
If you want to be a leader, in a field or area, you must create a culture which allows people to tap into their creative side. Knowing that engaging this element of the mind could lead to incomplete products when first introduced. However, in the long run, as these products mature the sky is the limit for continuous field and area leading success.
Word of the of the week: Pacesetter – a person, group, or organization that is the most progressive or successful and serves as a model to be imitated.
Ask yourself: What are you willing to invest for pace-setting success?
