How Successful Teams Innovate: Naturally
By: Sonia Di Maulo, Founder and Lead Feedback Enthusiast
Loss of Natural Ability
The road to successful leadership begins with awareness of self, environment, people, and the relationships connecting us all. We have lost our natural ability to connect and collaborate in a way that acknowledges and sustains the interconnection of all life on earth.
The good news is that I have found my passion! Through the journey of writing my new book, The Apple in the Orchard: a story about finding the courage to emerge as a leader, I found a metaphor for helping to guide individuals, teams, and organizations through a rediscovery of our natural ability to work in a meaningful way; to listen and accept the desire and courage to emerge (both ours and that of others).
This emergence is essential to innovate, collaborate, grow, and sustain healthy workplaces of the future.
Successful organizations listen to emerging leaders (of all ages) and build processes of collaboration. Brave Apple, the main character in the book, is not alone. As her story becomes legend, many follow her lead and help the orchard to thrive through innovation and new ways of working together. This is how the orchard keeps evolving to maintain its resilience.
It’s time for us to re-learn how to model living systems and develop a plan towards the new, sustainable world of work.
Cultivate the courage to emerge in your people. To purchase The Apple in the Orchard for the Brave Apples in your organization, visit www.theappleintheorchard.ca
