Isn't a tough journey to celebrate #9900 blog postings - to pursue the digital way of brainstorming, innovating and story-telling?

Innovative leadership influence is based on people’s innate talent, strength, vision, character, charisma: Leadership is one's ability to paint a vivid picture, a vision of a future state and motivate others to achieve it. There are various levels at which leadership is exercised. At its core, leadership is about identifying and envisioning a worthy objective, influencing people to produce value and performance. What leadership focuses on is about leading with purpose and intent to achieve clearly defined goals consistently. 

The global balance of economic, culture, political, education, etc, power is shifting in a multipolar world. The highly talented, and highly professional global leaders present unique character & charisma, think differently, bridge multitude of gaps, and bring fresh insight to harness global innovation indefatigably. The abundant information and the latest digital technologies open the new possibilities to communicate and collaborate cross-disciplinarily. Innovative global leaders are open to new perspectives, keep objective observation and balanced viewpoints, articulate strategic visions, enforce interactive designs, and navigate directions focused on leading changes at the global scope influentially.

Innovation leadership influence comes from the good combination of advanced mindset, interdisciplinary expertise, problem-solving competency
: Leadership is an influence starting at the mindset level, followed by exemplary behaviors. The boundary of knowledge domains is blurred and the scope of knowledge is expanded in the continual base. It requires fundamentally different mindsets and paradigms to lead innovatively. The great digital leaders can expand their thinking boxes, to connect wider dots for harnessing creativity. They understand the climate and challenges the customer may face in each region; sustain a balance of diversified viewpoints, cross-domain disciplines; opportunities and risk; individualism and teamwork, personalization and unification. So they can practice expert power, frame the right problems and solve them in the right way.

Innovative leaders have the ability to learn to reflect, have the interdisciplinary knowledge to understand perspectives different from their own. Insightful leaders with true global perspective and cultural sensitivity can handle or lead multicultural teams with global capacity. Working with people around the world brings them an even broader variety of views to analysis, decision making, and implementation. The digital leaders with differentiated leadership competency can share a clear vision, harness communication and collaboration, so they can place resources, know what/where to leverage and what/where to avoid, make strategic decisions, improve brand reputation and enforce people-centricity.

Leadership is a journey and it develops daily, not in a day, with strong discipline and time management skills:
A great leader is not perfect, but progressive. Leadership is an influence based on a set of clarified principles and refined process for alignment and integration, not a “command & control” hierarchy. Effective leadership fills a certain gap or multiple gaps in order to lead to the future smoothly. Great leadership is only achieved once a leader has fully integrated themselves via deep introspective work and has the willingness to do this. Leadership is about focus. It is about providing direction, both for oneself and others. It is also about transforming leadership from good to great, from local to global, from stereotype to profundity.

Leaders need to build on their intellectual abilities through experience, practices, and motivation to improve. It is the level of consciousness of the leader, or the level of self-development in regards to the ability to be adept and adroit at removing obstacles, embodying the human experience for constantly influencing and advancing human society. Leadership is a journey, not just a destiny. In fact, the most critical and yet overlooked foundation to being a real leader is to enable others to dedicate their collective intelligence, talent, and full energy to achieve extraordinary results, for collaboratively shaping a better world!

Leadership becomes more complex due to the exponential growth of information and frequent disruptions. Great leaders have a unique insight to bridge the multitude of leadership gaps and demonstrate the ability to innovate, influence, and become learning agile. Leadership is an influence; every authentic leader has an inner compass to guide forward, apply visionary and strategic thinking, plus enthusiasm, and unique personal leadership styles to amplify influence constantly.
