Net Leadership: the new paradigm of leadership
The Net Leadership is about realizing and accepting one’s own Unique Talent as a first step, then entering within the personal space and net-working with others.
Realize your unique talent
Unique because distinctive.
Everyone has their own “Unique Talent”: it is what characterizes you, distinguishes you and, very often, it is what comes easy to you. Let’s think, for example, of the new professions, those that arise from a “passion”, from something that makes us feel good, that comes easy and natural to us. This is talent, which becomes collective when it is shared with others.
Often, talent remains hidden because you are not ready to accept it or because it is society that is not ready to accept it. Accepting means welcoming a gift.
When you choose authentically and consciously to accept who you are, things happen and difficulties are more easily overcome.
This is why, working on Talent on a personal level is an education. At a company level, however, it is a work of culture and mindset.
The paradigm only works if there is widespread awareness / culture of talent.
Unique Talent: your personal transformative purpose.
Act within your own space
Once you have recognized and accepted your Unique Talent, the next step will be to act it in your own space; and this must be occupied all, no more, no less. Responsibility is, therefore, that space to be filled without invading the space of others. Responsibility means connecting with others, recognizing their talent and their space without ever invading it. It is no longer a linear concept but a spatial one.
It is like in a volleyball match: when the coach entrusts you with a role to play, only if you recognize that it reflects your talent, you will be able to fill all your space.
In a company with a culture of talent, your space is the delimited field of your Job Description. If you recognize that it is the right space that makes your talent stand out, you won’t need to invade the other spaces, but your only goal will be to totally fill yours.
Responsibility: fill your own space
Boost your own and other people’s talent
When you have recognized, accepted and acted on your talent, you will want to improve and refine it. Mentorship as a co-creation has precisely this purpose: to improve one’s own talent by committing to improve others’.
During the Mentorship you can let yourself be contaminated, inspired to do better. To impose old managerial paradigms always and in any case no longer have the same effect. Today there is an increasing need for exchange, opening, correction and negotiation.
Mentorship as a co-creation
Have fun, which means think different
Acting on one’s talent also means having fun, but not in the simple meaning of “fun” but rather in the ability to change perspective.
Often it is precisely while you are distracted from the flow of thoughts related to a work goal that you find the right idea. This happens when you free yourself from feelings of guilt and from a by now worn idea of being “always present”, “always on track”.
“Divertĕre” in this sense is linked to responsibility, trust, awareness. It was the mantra in Einstein’s life.
Divertĕre is the key to think different.
Go straight to the point
Simplicity is what distinguishes the way a Net Leader communicates.
It can be referred to the scientific principle according to which, other conditions being equal, greater plausibility must be assigned to that which can be formulated in the simplest way.
Simplicity is resolved complexity, it is wanting to communicate by connecting to everyone in an inclusive way beyond mental, social, and corporate superstructures. It is the way to communicate between different cultures and different generations.
Simplicity: when everything is clear
