Intelligence - and trying things out...
If intelligence is ‘knowing what to do when you don’t know what to do’* then leadership should be about growing this ability in your organisation. Good strategic leadership is partly about imagining futures for the organisation. Even though many (if not all) of these futures will never happen – the act of imagining helps people know what to do when they don’t know what to do.
As a leader – how are you involving your colleagues in imagining and managing the future?
How much will this help your organisation be light on its feet?
