Octopus Arms

Did you know that Octopus arms have a mind of their own. Two-thirds of an octopus’ neurons reside in its arms, not its head. As a result, the arms can problem solve how to open a shellfish while the rest of the Octopus is busy doing something else, like checking out a cave for more edible goodies.  Unusual – but brilliant!

2022 is the year for the unusual leader.

The quirky thinker. The flexible worker. The innovative commander. The Story Teller.  Times have, and will continue to change, so we must all embrace the new normal and adapt. We must become something else and break away from the social norms that have provided us with a safe haven for decades.

We should begin to master many unique traits that will provide us with a true business advantage. These 8 traits below will help encourage multifaceted leaders and workers make hybrid working environments a better place to be.

So, where are your Leaders on a 1 – 10 scale?

1. Empathic behaviours
2. Adaptive thinking
3. Resilient mindsets
4. Agile approaches
5. Ingenious solution finding
6. Collaborative tactics
