Senior Curator and GeneralLeadership.com CEO, Brigadier General John E. Michel shares his insight into the power of believing there is a better way. He discusses that the positive effects of people’s actions were never realized by fearing change. Instead, each of them was the result of leveraging an opportunity for people to risk stepping out of their comfort zones to make different, more empowering choices.
Great story to remind us of not what we are but what we can be.
I’ve read recently that we have two parts of our brain – heuristic side and cognitive side. Heuristic is quick to judge, quick to estimate but can be often wrong. Cognitive is thoughtful and calculating and if often right BUT is lazy and will often, if not always, defer to Heuristic. There are ways, each individual to a person, to spool up your cognitive size and have it ready in the wing.
I wonder, and your thoughts are greatly appreciated, if we can spend time spooling up our teams’ cognitive side versus the occasional fire-drill as to keep them thinking outside of the box and out of group-think.
