“We are in an age of unprecedented change, it’s a ‘revolutionary’ time to be alive! The question we need to be asking ourselves is - ‘Am I leading that change?’ I believe we all have a choice to step up into personal, professional and social leadership. We have a choice to become agents for change, amplifiers, thought leaders to upgrade our thinking and lead our very own revolutions.”

How to herd genius

I was sitting with Thought Leader and culture expert Michael Henderson the other day and we were discussing the challenges with herding genius.

Clever people are a challenge to manage when you put them together in a room. They often have off topic ideas and randomly exciting suggestions. This is great when you are in a wide reaching think tank, but not so productive if you actually want to advance a project or conversation.

Next time you find yourself in a meeting and feeling like it's a talk fest and not going where it should, try asking the question; 'What question are we answering now?' or even 'What are the questions we need to focus on today?'

The question I asked myself in writing this blog post was, 'How do I turn talk fests into productive meetings?'

Herd genius by focusing the brain power in the room on an issue.
