How to Build 5 Benchmarks of 21st Century Leadership & Success
Possibility Thinking, Doing and Results, Part II
Recap of Part 1 of this 2 Part Series: Part 1 focused on “the what” three essential strengths you can GROW at the speed of change (your 3Q Edge™). 3 strengths that breathe life and momentum into your greatest potential because they s are built with your strengths as well as the changes, challenges, stressors (even failures) you face.
Counter-intuitive? You betcha, but the imperative to find new, better and faster ways to realize our greatest potential is real, critical…and counter-intuitive! Change is not the problem, it is the solution. Our ability to develop cognitive, emotional and social adaptability is critical and doable!
Five benchmarks of 21st century success (empowerment, engagement, ideation, innovation and collaboration) are important results of building 3Q skills. In addition to building these career and business success benchmarks, developing your 3Q Edge™ can help you build greater resiliency, courage, grit, self-confidence while also developing critical intrinsic motivators that keep your values, your vision and your purpose in alignment when times get tough!
What re the five steps in my 3Q Edge™toolkit/methodology? How can they help you build empowerment, engagement, ideation and collaboration in disruptive times? Become an integrative thinker who can use two opposable ideas to create solutions? Feel better, communicate across internal and external boundaries, grow courage, resiliency and grit in the face changes, challenges, hyper-competition or ambiguity? Enable and actualize better results? Inspire the best in yourself and others?
Ten years of study, application with clients and a passion for fast, quick, actionable steps that drive results helped me hone in on five steps that build 3Q skills. Five steps that are part of my coaching and training methodology because they are simple and they can be applied to in a cross-disciplinary, cross sector, cross functional basis. Can you use R-E-A-C-H™ as a guideline for other than building 3Q skills? Yes! Try it out, and send me your feedback. Most importantly, consider the potential of building your 3Q Edge™.
Taking 3Q to as many people remains a mission that punctuates my work and life, because the imperative to use the challenges we face to realize our greatest potential is critical and doable! (image credit for this blog: Presenter Media)
