Because our current climate is defined by disruption and obstacles, our leadership is requiring new levels of innovation and imagination from us at every turn. In this episode, Jenni Catron speaks with author and consultant Brian Paradis about the power of approaching obstacles as opportunities and why leading with imagination is crucial in this challenging and fatiguing season of leadership.
In this episode, you’ll find out:
- When to ask, “What can I do differently?”
- What to do when you’re not having fun at work
- How to deal with disruption
- Why you need to rethink how you value people
- When the best idea is simply to do something
- Why you need to connect the dots for those you lead
Paradis, who led Florida Hospital to a #1 U.S. News & World Report ranking three years in a row, explains in his most recent book, Lead with Imagination, how to incorporate imagination into the workplace and create a culture where people thrive, innovation happens, and results are achieved.
Paradis believes we are smarter than any generation in history, but that isn’t the problem. The problem is imagination is not advancing at the same pace. But where there’s a closed door, there’s an open window of opportunity for those willing to walk through, take a risk and see what others don’t.
