I did get two positive comments about my BLOG work today and found the picture on the left from Tanmay Vora that perfectly fits to my basic idea for doing it. Share to Learn for me and others.

With respect to my one sentence summary of the 2nd Future of Leadership Salon -->  Go slower, to be faster ...  Unsure, we are just applying the same principle at work, as preparation for a large project starting shortly. Spend a little bit more time at the beginning to get the basics right, work on a common understanding and agree the priorities for all involved parties, to be much faster during the project work. I did not came up with this idea, I just applied common sense, as far as I see it. Some supporting material below:

Some other links to topics I mentioned in the last days:

Nothing helps make a leader more approachable than admitting your struggles, screw-ups and behind-the-scenes thinking on hard calls. If the leader makes this a priority, the whole company will be more open and methodical learning from failure. -- Scott Weiss https://scott.a16z.com/about/

The six success capabilities of Future Leadership  https://www.futureofleadership.salon/ 

Another busy week passed by quickly, but as we learned during the week - Let's go slower to be faster Blush. We should continue, collectively with courage ...

Thanks again for being a regular reader, only with your support I could celebrate my 3rd BLOG anniversary this week, what an unexpected success. HeheWild

Next week will be busy again, as my two main projects need a lot of attention to be either finished in time or to provide the needed functionality to all depending departments. Weather will further cool down, summer is taking a short brake, and we might even get some rain that is urgently required, as it is much too dry since weeks.

Below some interesting material to look at:

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Steve Jobs, American - Businessman February 24, 1955 - October 5, 2011

Havas GmbH motto, picture taken in Duesseldorf on Thursday this week.

The Future of Leadership Salon https://www.futureofleadership.salon/ had a wide span of generations, not only inside the Thought Provocateurs, but also in the audience. What is not a surprise, but a common theme in the meantime  https://hbr.org/2014/09/managing-people-from-5-generations.

An obvious joint interest was the Future of Leadership, but by accident and in the mindset of being curious and conscious, you can find other topics as well. Lunch and Dinner buffets are always a good opportunity and sometimes you just end up with a banana bread discussion Wink

Could be much worse, when you think about the "right" beer choice in the Cologne and Duesseldorf area. For more details please check - Dusseldorf vs. Cologne: My two rounds of a friendly German beer bouthttps://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/travel/dusseldorf-v-cologne-a-rivalry-you-can-grin-and-beer/2015/03/12/4ab6b3e0-c122-11e4-9ec2-b418f57a4a99_story.html 

With respect to banana bread Y*** definitely has the best recipie, but some alternative choices for you attached:

One of the downside of the WWW, just too much choices Unsure.

Be kind, don't judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation. Jasmine Guinness, Irish - Designer Born: September 28, 1976, https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3142394/

Independence Day on 04-Jul-19 was this years date for "If life gives you lemons, make lemonade". The 2nd Future of Leadership Salon, perfectly prepared and organized by Eve Simon https://www.linkedin.com/in/eve-simon-7378b86/ and her team, and hosted by the Hafas GmbH in their cool location in Duesseldorf https://de.havas.com/havas-dusseldorf/.

See my last year summary in the 29-Jun-18 BLOG post:  https://www.rethinkandfocus.com/429718297/6150900/posting/the-future-of-leadership-salon-my-highlights 

We had a wide variety of impressions during the day. From Digital China, Innovation, Flow and Radical self awareness, via a tasty lunch, an african dance and a mindfulness meditation, to Nomad, Happytalism, Agileocracy and Justdiggit & Raindance. Plus many more ...

One of the guests did summarize the whole day in a freestyle rap, Daniel Jennewein in a sketch note (see my Photo Album for details). Below my key takeaways that only partially can describe the day:

After a quick coverage of the host Havas GmbH:

Lets start with the 2019 Thought Provocateurs and some of their key statements:

 Some more topics to think about or to look at:

 My personal summary:

  • The whole day program did provide enough content for the brain (left and right side), the heart and the gut
  • Take a break to listen to different perspectives – go slower
  • Go for x-functional with respect to culture, age, gender, skills, etc.
  • Start with yourself and then take responsibility for you, family, team, environment, etc.
  • An Evolutionary leader needs / has to:
    • Self reflection
    • Dig deeper
    • Send trust into the organization
    • Take pauses - don't say: "I have no time to sharpen the axe, I have too much trees to cut"
    • Curious skepticism
    • Combine modern and traditional methods
    • Develop yourself before you can develop others
