John Golden interviews Megan Reitz as they go over these topics:
- What is the concept of speaking truth to power mindful leadership?
- We make a lot of decisions from time to time. We make choices about who we listen to or with whom we speak. Are these largely conscious or unconscious decisions?
- Does it impact organizationally when people are very-very conscious of hierarchies of the status of labels of personalities?
- Innovations and ideas are the two key areas that stay in people’s agenda all the time for better growth and development. How does an organization address both of these in a way that there is an equal ratio so that things don’t get chaotic in the name of innovation!
- There is a couple of interesting challenges and one of those is the generational challenge in which you probably see that people expect to be heard and expect your idea to be adopted. So how an organization tackles with this as encouraging people’s ideas and suggestions is good but you can’t implement everything! So how do organizations overcome this challenge?
As a leadership challenge, how to create an environment where people feel like it okay to speak up and it’s okay to forward ideas but to make them understand that the outcome can be different from the one they want to look forward to!
In today’s world, everything is moving with such a fast pace and things are in constant flux which makes it quite difficult to find the time to put all the things in practice wisely. So how to overcome this challenge!
When you need to work with culture change or identifying the culture or even deciding what the culture should be; a lot of organization’s culture grow organically. So how to help companies create a deliberate culture and how to overcome the challenges too!
