My homework for a creative leadership class
This painting I created as a final project for my favorite Masters Class in Creative Leadership and Problem Solving: I use symbols to describe my leadership style. I went all out abstract! This explanation comes with it.
This painting is using symbolism for theories and how I combine visionary leadership, with Flow, Divergent thinking, and Foresight.
To begin with, the Foresight Preferences to show that I am a leader that want to help my followers find out who they are and how to use their skills to the best of their ability.
Those are the four symbols with myself in the middle. Classifier, Indicator, (Leader) Developer, and the Implementer
The symbolical thought bubble which we all share is my “Vision.”
I would like to think of myself as a visionary leader with a visionary thinking style in.
The image is also showing that not only am I sharing my vision with the followers but I am fostering them to feel as if they are a part of the Vision.
If they feel they have a role in achieving the vision, this will help foster an environment for “Flow.”
The culture of the staff is based on flow as the reward and goal. That is the intertwined energy sources “Flowing.” The environment would need to be able to support the Flow environment.
Our culture is to make working fun and creative, this will drive you, motivation and skill being stretched in a supportive environment is the recipe for success, and this is accomplished with the use of divergent and convergent problem-solving.
The two circles with the smaller colored waves is a visualization for Divergent thinking and the collection of mass ideas and filtering through the Convergent circle to get to the most Novel solution.
Creating flow through employees knowing their skills and stretching them to achieve more of the feeling of flow and achievement.
