In this Episode 4 of the Futures Intelligent Leadership Flowcast I am joined by Dave Snowden and Craig Whelden.
Dave is the founder of Cognitive edge which was founded in 2005 with the objective of building methods, tools and capability to utilize insights from Complex Adaptive Systems theory and other scientific disciplines in social systems. Even if you do not know who Dave Snowden is you may be familiar with, or even used one of his decision making frameworks, called the Cynifen Framework, which he developed while at IBM to help understand the context for decision making. If you look at his profile you will quickly realize that he has a brilliant mind and alot of wisdom to share.
Craig has 40 years of experience in the US Military, both in and out of uniform. He recently retired and authored a book titled, “Leadership The Art of Inspiring People to Be Their Best” and he enjoys motivational speaking about his experiences in leadership. I had the pleasure of meeting Craig in Honolulu Hawaii prior to his book release and found him to be a very humble and authentic person, and a great model of leadership.
In this dialogue Dave and Craig explore contextual leadership, cognitive diversity to manage complexity, coherent teams and cultures, why many military command techniques are rooted in neuroscience, why changing process and relationships dynamics is more effective than trying to change people, The power of leadership self-awareness, the strengths and limits of 360 reviews, and the important of real time feedback loops and leadership narrative.
