Profound leaders and professionals are open and deep, able to apply multiple thinking processes to expand their perspective of circumstances, and leverage nonlinear logic in dealing with varying situations wisely.

The gap between knowledge and insight is about the depth of understanding. Because knowing something is not equal to understanding it, understanding it doesn’t mean you can communicate and coach it effectively. 

 Here is a set of featured blogs to dig into the “keywords” of the 21st century to brainstorm the future of digital leadership and business transformation.

            Initiate Inquiry

Illustrate Innovation via Inquiries The digital environment is full of uncertainty, velocity, complexity, ambiguity, fierce competitions, and continuous disruptions. And the digital era upon us is about innovation. Making logical inquiries and applying an interdisciplinary approach to manage innovation could be at the tipping point for the digital paradigm shift. Asking questions tells us that we are still curious, still willing to learn, with the beginner's mindset. Inquisitiveness is one of the characteristics of effective leaders in the digital era of information abundance and fast pace of changes to manage innovation effectively.

Inquisitiveness The world is transforming from personal computing into digital computing, from globalization into globality, from knowledge limitation to information abundance, the answer about yesterday is not as critical as the questions about the future. How to ask the right questions is not only just the raw intelligence to reflect human’s intellectual curiosity, it becomes the new skills needed to be sharpened and focused on, to frame and co-solve common problems and co-create the better world. So how to assess a person’s inquisitiveness and the wisdom of questioning?

InitiateinsightfulquestionsThe society we live in becomes hyper-connected and interdependent; the more complex the situation is; the more different communication approaches are needed to reach for in-depth understanding. To put simply, the insight of a situation requires in-depth understanding. And such insight should lead us not only understanding, but also predicting; purpose-seeking, innovation-driven.

Initiateinquiries With the high velocity and unprecedented uncertainty, in many circumstances, business leaders couldn’t predict the future with a certain degree of accuracy, they have to understand the hidden paradoxes, do in-depth cause-effect analysis, optimize complicated things or processes, and deal with the “VUCA” dynamic skillfully.

Inquisitiveness & Innovation As we steadily move into the deep digital reality with continuous disruptions and competitions, innovation is a differentiated business competency to build long term organizational advantage. People who innovate are not afraid to challenge conventional understanding, they have the unlimited curiosity to ask questions, explore alternative ways to do things.
