Where do leaders operate? Beyond Imagination That’s Impossible Looks Difficult Easy to do

Evidence-based thinking and science of the day Science Problems Solutions X Y

What happens when the problem lies outside of the science of the day? Science Problems Solutions ? Y Y X

PowerPoint Presentation:

What happens when the problem lies outside of the science of the day? Science Problems Solutions ? Y Y X That’s difficult! That’s impossible! That’s beyond imagination!

Our best thinking got us here.:

Our best thinking got us here. The problems that we face cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them. Albert Einstein

PowerPoint Presentation:

We need to find solutions outside of the framework of the day! Science Problems Solutions Y X

Science values intuition and imagination too! :

Science values intuition and imagination too! “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Albert Einstein

Where do leaders operate? Science ten years from now Tomorrow’s science Today’s science Yesterday’s Science Problems Solutions X Y

What is difficult? Impossible? Beyond imagination?:

What is difficult? Impossible? Beyond imagination? We the humans are in two different stages of development One lacks vision and other driven by power of positive vision

We do not reach visions, we create them.:

We do not reach visions, we create them. “The future is not a result of a choice among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that we create, first in the mind, next in will, then in action. The future is not some place where are going, but a place we are creating. We do not discover the paths but make them, and the action of making the future changes both the maker and destination.” John Schaar

How much can a person achieve?:

How much can a person achieve? Unlikely more than his or her vision. We can turn things around and say, a vision limits what we can do!

The only true limits are the ones that the mind accepts.:

The only true limits are the ones that the mind accepts. Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he perfected the light bulb! Abraham Lincoln lost 8 elections (local) before he became President of the United States!

PowerPoint Presentation:

“There are no rules here, we are trying to achieve something!” Thomas Edison

How do we usually define problems”? :

How do we usually define problems”? 1. “Deviation from a norm” or impossible” 2. Existing tool box - skills-ability to do - attitude-willingness to do 3. Knee-jerk “this way and only way”

Deviation from the “norm”:

Deviation from the “norm” 1. Who determines the “norm”? CEO? 2. What if “norm” is the source of the problem? 3. Restoration of “norm” is system maintenance not improvement

Use existing solutions - When we have a hammer, everything looks like a nail!:

Use existing solutions - When we have a hammer, everything looks like a nail! 1. Manager - everything is a Employee problem. 2. Employee- everything is a management problem. 3. CEO- everything is a capability problem. 4. Clients-everything is delivery problem.

Lack of resources:

Lack of resources 1. Resources are universal constraints - when will we ever have enough? 2. Are we using existing resources effectively and efficiently? 3. How resourceful are we?

What is an alternative way to defining problems? :

What is an alternative way to defining problems? Define problems in terms of why there is a difference between what we want (shared vision) and what is happening (current situation) and how to bridge this difference.

Approach requires two things:

Approach requires two things 1. We need to know clearly what we want. 2. We need to know clearly what is happening now.

Leadership Principle :

Leadership Principle Effective leaders inspire a shared vision. A shared vision is a picture of a desired future that all stakeholders want to create . The emphasis is on shared, not on vision.

Think like architects, not like mechanics. Problem solving mind set is different from that of creating something new!:

Think like architects, not like mechanics. Problem solving mind set is different from that of creating something new! Mental creation must come first than physical creation

Few questions to be asked by CEO:

Few questions to be asked by CEO 1. Have we shared vision in our organization? 2. Is there personal vision and shared? 3. Can everyone relate and identify with shared vision of the organisation ? 4. If there is no alignment why?

Then comes strategy:

Then comes strategy Four levels of strategy 1. Grand strategy 2. Strategy 3. Operational strategy 4. Tactics

Grand strategy defines everything:

Grand strategy defines everything Should we go to war? If aim is to leap frog market share Who is our enemy? Who the nearest competition is Who are our internal allies? What price do we want to pay if we fail?

Declaring war may take time!:

Declaring war may take time! WWII - Roosevelt, Stalin, Churchill It took the US two years after Nazi Germany invaded parts of Europe before it declared war!

“I have a dream!”:

“I have a dream!” It took one man to dream big Martin luther or Gandhi

He did not say….“I have a “strategic plan!” :

He did not say….“I have a “strategic plan!”

What is shared vision?:

What is shared vision? Emphasis is on shared not on vision. Description is in the present tense . Must be easy for people to draw mental picture of that future state

Key purpose of a vision:

Key purpose of a vision Generate new levels of inspiration and energy to change the current situation and create a new future.

Types of visions:

Types of visions Personal - What do I want to happen or create? Shared - What do we want to happen or create?

Personal and shared vision:

Personal and shared vision Shared visions emerge from personal visions. Personal visions come from an individual’s deep caring. Shared visions come from a common caring.

Conventional approach to “strategy development”:

1. Where are we now? 2. Where do we want to go? 3. How do we get there? 1. Situation analysis 2. Strategic objectives 3. Strategy partners Conventional approach to “strategy development”

Disadvantages of common practice:

Disadvantages of common practice 1. Situation analysis is often more descriptive (indicators list) and less analytical. 2. “Visions” are set lower because reference point is the current situation (often depressing). 3. Encourages only incremental changes, not fundamental ones.

Should visions be based on situation analysis? :

Should visions be based on situation analysis? Should we want only what we can have given the current situation? Should we aim for what we truly want and change the current situation?

An alternative way:

An alternative way 1. Where do we want to go? 2. Where are we now? 3. Why is there a difference? 4. What needs to change? 5. How do we get there?

An alternative way - different language:

An alternative way - different language 1. What do we want to happen? 2. What is happening now? 3. Why is there a difference? 4. What needs to change? 5. How do we nurture change and accountability?

Comparison:

Current practice Situation analysis Strategic objectives Strategy Alternative way Shared vision Situation statement Root cause analysis Strategic objectives Strategy Comparison

Advantages of the new way:

Advantages of the new way 1. Shared vision clarifies what is important and empowers people to take initiative. 2. Nurtures analytical thinking. 3. Encourages focus and creativity. 4. Highlights the need for change. 5. Forces confrontation of the “dragons”.

To improve your score, keep eye on the ball!:

To improve your score, keep eye on the ball! Are people engaged in “target chasing”? A “revenue number ” is not the ball. It is the score!

Shared visionaries ask::

Shared visionaries ask: What do we want to happen? Or What do we want to create? NOT What is feasible given present conditions?

How “big” should our vision be?:

How “big” should our vision be? The answer is how deeply do we care? How much are we willing to change? Every vision has a price. If stakeholders really want something, they must be willing to pay the price.

How “big” should vision be?:

How “big” should vision be? 1. “Floor setting” - “At least” we should….. 2. “Go for ceiling” - What we truly want “no matter what”.
