And if they don’t exist, co-create them. We co-create great leadership by responding well to creative, genuine, expansive, ethical, enticing leaders.
In the early days of the web, a great web site was said to be “sticky”; great right brain leadership might be said to create environments that are like good web sites – they get a lot of hits and click trough’s -- environments where people want to be involved.
Question: Why do we train our kids to succeed at standardized tests – when we’re supposed to be preparing leaders of the future who must be innovative?
Question: Where’s the “out of the box thinking” class for the first grade? Or are first graders already “out of the box” and the purpose of first grade is to get their thinking back IN the box, coloring inside the lines but not quite knowing why? To have right brain leaders, might we have to have right brain schools…?
- Right Brain Leadership…is
intuitive while innovating.
Intuition is a key right brain quality often called “great gut instincts” but is really high mental acumen, a supersensory skill called intuition.
This ability to “sense” the future and significant trends is a new managerial skill important to train. It involves seeing the future as a subtle form of creating the future.
Right brain leaders will know “the art of the long view” and take into account 5-10 generations out, the impact of what they and their teams create, for a more hospitable environmental and societal planet. They might have fewer unintended consequences to fix later -- from Y2K to unanticipated outcomes of mass fossil fuel use.

He found that some people are able to predict the future, and tehse are the people who make decisions that generate the highest profits." Zoominfo, Professor John Mihalasky.
“A breakthrough idea is like shooting skeet. People’s needs change, so you must aim well ahead of the target to hit it.” – Raymond Kurzweil.
“I never came upon any of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking.” – Albert Einstein.
It understands the impact of these and the transformative nature of power that shares; that nurtures; that develops the best in everyone; that expands global business and networks into broadening fields of companies once seen only as competitors.
Instead of creating more clients by thinking of most other companies/individuals as potential partners; by thinking of clients as the best evangelists and not those to be given less for a higher charges.
