Effective Leadership

“Neuroscience research reveals that the human brain operates on a hierarchy of safety, connection and learning. Effective leadership must address the two fundamental human needs once the basic safety needs are met – connection and growth.

Ineffective communication stifles connection and ineffective learning impedes growth.

Effective leadership starts from within – with self-management. On the foundation, then it provides connection and facilitates learning. Constant learning through iterative experimentation and transparent communication transforms the organization to produce industry game-changing innovation.

How does she do it?

Radical innovation is a serendipitous result of many self-organizing employees experimenting and learning from profuse experimentation, following simple rules. Although radical innovation is uncontrolled and unpredictable, her global leadership research found that leaders and organizations can do certain things to consistently produce radical innovation.

What Is Quantum Leadership?

Quantum Leadership produces radical innovation by:

Mastering self-management, which is critical to provide safety for others
Providing safety for others so others can use the higher part of their brain for connection and learning
Facilitating differentiation through which a diverse pool of thoughts can be created
Creating connection and belonging in the organization
Facilitating effective learning through profuse trial and error
Inducing radical innovation consistently

It’s not a simple list of behaviors but an integrated system that addresses deep human needs and unleashes the maximum potential in individuals so they can produce radical innovation.

It is a set of leadership competencies that transform leaders and organizations to stimulate innovation based on solid neuroscience and complex adaptive systems research. It starts with effective self-management, provides safety for others, facilitates differentiation leading to deep connection among the team; then facilitates learning and growth. When feeling safe and connected, people can unleash their innate genius for innovation, intelligence, and capacity for learning and pursuit of excellence.
