Reactive v’s Creative Leadership

When were you in a reactive leadership position? Did you achieve the outcome you were looking for? What could have you achieved with a Creative leadership mindset?

In a recent team coaching session, we learnt about reactive versus creative leadership. https://blog.hrps.org/blogpost/Transforming-Reactive-into-Creative-Leadership which is all about how you to chose to react to a situation. Creative leadership is about asking questions, listening and playing back what you have heard, without indulging in your own thoughts, assumptions and position, just being present. Reactive leadership is where you act defensively and are centered in your own thoughts and not present for others.

The terminology resonated with me and has been work in progress for a number of months now. I definitely feel as if my connections with others is far richer as a result of the creative leadership mindset. Cannot recall a reactive leadership moment in recent times! Its also a great opportunity to learn, when you are in creative leadership mindset you are open to learning new things where as reactive you are locked into your thoughts.

Actively seeking out information that challenges your thinking also feeds into the Creative leadership, being open that their is other perspectives and that there is no right or wrong.
