Practicing Wonder


We live in a world that’s complex; that’s fast moving; that’s disruptive. And if we sit in a world singularly concerned with continuous improvement, we’re going to live in a world where business is actually decaying. Instead we must be thinking beyond improvement into something completely different.

Wonder is the source of movement, of innovation, of new commercial frontiers. Great leaders must have a sense of wonder in order to keep vitality in their organizations.

Connected leaders can help inspire wonder and increase employee engagement within organizations by:

  • Allow differences to provoke creativity
  • Differences + Trust = Brilliance
  • Clarify what to preserve before you take on eliminate and create
  • Be in service to a common purpose
