Kevin Asbjornson's Eight Keys to Inspired Leadership™
Kevin Asbjörnson, MIM, named finalist for Colorado Business Committee for the Arts Innovation Award.
A new 21st Century Mindset is requiring people in all professions, industries and organizations around the world to reset, reframe and recalibrate their thinking, learning and lifestyle orientation. The three core competencies which comprise the 21st Century Mindset are the ability to Inspire-To stimulate to action; Imagine- To form new mental pictures or images, and Innovate-To initiate renewal.
Our 21st century global society yearns for an inspirational leadership of possibility; a leadership based more on hope, aspiration, and innovation than on the replication of historical patterns of constrained pragmatism. Luckily, such leadership is possible today. For the first time in history, citizens and leaders can work backward from their aspirations and imagination rather than forward from the past. The gap between what people can imagine and what they can accomplish has never been smaller.
Organizations which lack inspirational leadership of possibility often create employment disengagement, which has a direct impact to the financial performance of the organization and the quality of three critical and interconnected relationships within an organization;
- The relationship between employees and management.
- The relationship between employees and their jobs and company.
- The relationship between employees and other employees.
The Human Capital Institute has recently quantified the financial impact to an organization of employee disengagement and introduced a helpful model of Return on Engagement (ROE) in their informative report entitled “The Economics of Engagement”. To preview this report, please click here.
Responding to the challenges and yearnings of the 21st century requires a global renaissance of leadership, in service to the human spirit. Individual and organizational leadership is not about having the right answers; leadership is about asking the right questions.
The most pressing question we need to ask ourselves today as individuals, organizations, foundations, governments and nations, is a What if? Question; What if our most important asset is the ability to engage our human spirit and develop our human potential?
The professional educators, performing artists and inspirational speakers of Inspire! Imagine! Innovate! invite you to engage us to explore, discover and practice the creative and artistic competencies, which are essential to the engagement of the human spirit and growth of human potential!
