Innovative Collaboration Human progress is achieved through three stages- dependent, independent, and interdependent. Thanks to emerging technologies and abundant information flow, the functional, geographical, or industrial borders are blurred, people are encouraged to break down silos, seek out help, brainstorm fresh ideas, and co-solve existing or emerging business problems collaboratively. Collaboration, teamwork, and unity bring complementary strength and amplify collective potential.

Innovate Via Leadership Integration Leadership comes in all ages, forms, and styles. It is a soft discipline with hard professional competency. With hypercomplexity and rapid change, leadership is to bridge, not to divide; to adapt, not too rigid; to move forward, not backward. Leadership effectiveness is based on the breadth of expertise and depth of impact. Often, leadership is not one dimensional, but needs to integrate lots of great ingredients, with a “big picture” in mind for harnessing collaboration and enhancing unification.

Organizations should be identifying patterns for improving governance maturity, and promoting engagement, motivation, and innovation as these are vital aspects of top-performing enterprises. In today’s modern economy. Sound governance is to improve the management effectiveness and eliminate risks.

Innovativelogic Complexity, ambiguity, uncertainty are the reality today; it’s important to deal with the nonlinear, hyperconnected situations in today's digital dynamic. The most important capability of the cognitive mind with coherent logic is the willingness and ability to seek out knowledge, gain an in-depth understanding of people or things, identify problem areas, dig into root causes, make effective decisions and come up with novel solutions for moving forward.

Insightofpitfallsinstrstegymanagement Many companies spend a significant portion of time formulating rock solid strategies, but execution does not go smoothly for achieving the expected results. There are varying reasons why strategy management fails, and there isn’t always a right or wrong choice in any situation, there are a lot of gray areas, varying blind spots, capability gaps in strategy management. As a matter of fact, execution is often more difficult due to its complexity and the culture resistance. The senior manager should set policies, adopt the posture of "we are in this together," to manage the collective insight and clear up the blind spot, bridge capability gaps and handle gray areas thoughtfully to ensure the pieces of the puzzle can be integrated into a clear business picture, and the organization can reach the clearly defined destination step-wisely.

Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking about the new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.
