The Maverick Dilemma. Mavericks, who I define as wilfully independent people, are known for doing things differently, dancing to the beat of their own drum, and for experiencing the world differently to others.
Effective Maverick Leaders, often do things differently because they can see that this will provide the results that they and others wish to achieve. They are not concerned with the ‘beautiful plan’ in the same way that others are. The ‘beautiful plan’, is the strategy that has been designed to achieve the objective, it is elegant and detailed. The only problem that the Maverick Leader can see, is that the plan will not work in the desired manner.
This ‘Maverick’ knowledge, however, can often cause the Maverick Leader problems as they insist in persuading others to move from the status quo, the elegant plan, to successful execution, when others are more interested in the plan, rather than the success of the plan.
Recently I was interviewed by David Chislett for his #RebelRejectCreate project, this is how he describes it:
“THIS kind of creative thinking is the domain of Judith Germain and she explains HOW she continues to think like a Maverick and how she she harnesses that for progress and for good. hear how Judith remains creative and how she sees the futuure”David Chislett
Here’s a video of the conversation:
This was a great conversation with David as he explores what exactly is creativity, and how I have gone from believing that I wasn’t creative to understanding just how creative I am!
David manages to coax from me the exact process of my creativity, and how it differs when I’m working with Business Owners and larger organisations.
What do you think of the conversation, what did you learn and will do differently?
