Innovation – The Leadership Soft Skills | KaurSkills A summary of the role of leadership and soft skills in innovation. ‘A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.’ - Lao Tzu There are a lot of blogs and worthy peer journals, sharing the importance of innovation in business success and survival. We all agree innovation is important, but how do we nurture innovation, as something which is integral to business process, and creates value within an organisation? Exceptional leaders and authors highlight the importance of ‘soft’ skills for successful management and leadership. Just recently, Tom Peters tweeted: ‘So called “soft” people skills drive implementation. In management practice you could: (a) Ignore soft skills or give credence to ‘soft’ skills, as a key factor to nurturing performance, teamwork, in creativity and ultimate innovation; (c) Prioritise performance targets, financial measures and delivery of products and services.

5 Outstanding TED Talks about Creativity According to Sir Ken Robinson, creativity is the " process of having original ideas that have values". Everyone of us is born creative but the milieu where we are brought up and the kind of education we receive have a lot to do with how creative we become as we grow up. In his popular TED talk " Do Schools Kill Creativity " , Robinson argued that students are educated out of creativity. Schools and curriculum do not seem to put a high premium on those elements that are mainly linked to the development of our creative powers including art, music, dance, and drama. I am actually working on a poster about creativity which I will probably publish tomorrow. 1- 4 Lessons in Creativity 2- You Elusive Creative Genius 3- How to Build your Creative Genius 4- Where Good Ideas come from 5- Fashion and Creativity

3 Paths Toward A More Creative Life Everyone can learn to be more creative, but to become very creative, I’ve come to believe you need to lead a creative life. In watching my best students, in examining the lives of successful entrepreneurs, and in seeing the process of the great Native American artists who I know, it is clear that how they live their daily lives is crucial to their success. I realize that it sounds very “zen-y” (which is OK by me), yet I come to this realization not through a search for spirituality or clarity but from simple observation. Creativity is in such demand today that when we apply for jobs, when we join organizations, or when we just meet other people, we are asked to present our creative selves. But we can’t do that unless we understand the nature of our own creativity, locate the sources of our originality, and have a language that explains our work. It’s a work in progress, of course, but here are three specific ways that can help you lead a creative life. 1. For good reason. 2. 3.

How Doctors Die By Ken Murray, MD Years ago, Charlie, a highly respected orthopedist and a mentor of mine, found a lump in his stomach. He had a surgeon explore the area, and the diagnosis was pancreatic cancer. This surgeon was one of the best in the country. It’s not a frequent topic of discussion, but doctors die, too. Of course, doctors don’t want to die; they want to live. To administer medical care that makes people suffer is anguishing. How has it come to this—that doctors administer so much care that they wouldn’t want for themselves? To see how patients play a role, imagine a scenario in which someone has lost consciousness and been admitted to an emergency room. The above scenario is a common one. But of course it’s not just patients making these things happen. Some doctors are stronger communicators than others, and some doctors are more adamant, but the pressures they all face are similar. Should I have been more forceful at times? But doctors still don’t over-treat themselves.

The Eight Pillars of Innovation The greatest innovations are the ones we take for granted, like light bulbs, refrigeration and penicillin. But in a world where the miraculous very quickly becomes common-place, how can a company, especially one as big as Google, maintain a spirit of innovation year after year? Nurturing a culture that allows for innovation is the key. As we’ve grown to over 26,000 employees in more than 60 offices, we’ve worked hard to maintain the unique spirit that characterized Google way back when I joined as employee #16. At that time I was Head of Marketing (a group of one), and over the past decade I’ve been lucky enough to work on a wide range of products. What’s different is that, even as we dream up what’s next, we face the classic innovator’s dilemma: should we invest in brand new products, or should we improve existing ones? Have a mission that matters Work can be more than a job when it stands for something you care about. Think big but start small The best part of working on the web?

Types of Radioactive Decay and Their Effect on the Nucleus Video - Lesson and Example Introduction What images come to mind when you hear the words 'nuclear radiation'? Most likely these words conjure up a graphic scene of three-eyed fish and glowing green ooze. Nuclear Radiation Did you know that less than 1% of all the radiation you are exposed to comes from the nuclear industry? What exactly is radiation, and how damaging is it? Nuclear Notation As you may recall, the two particles that are found in the nucleus are the protons and neutrons. Particles in the nucleus can also be represented by this nuclear notation. Alpha Decay Now let's move on to the most common types of nuclear decay. Alpha particles are relatively heavy and quite slow-moving. Beta Decay Next up is beta decay or beta-minus decay. Gamma Decay Finally, we have gamma decay. Blocking a gamma ray is a lot more difficult. Lesson Summary As I previously mentioned, there is no way to escape radiation completely, and it wouldn't make any sense to walk around in lead clothing.
