An assortment of existential crises hover over human society and threaten to cut short civilizational progress. Whether it be climate change, a drop in groundwater level, the Ukraine war, gender differences, etc., the one-size-fits-all solution would not help. Instead, we need innovation in our problem-solving approach and consistently pursue it over time. That alone can spare us from civilizational deadlock. This calls for a paradigm shift from the existing leadership pattern, as maintained by the Founder of The ONE Percent Movement and Decision Velocity Global, Kiri-Maree Moore. She is on a mission to address the leadership deficit of intelligent and innovative engagement with youth and create next-generation leaders.
A New Leadership
While theorizing her idea of robust and innovative leadership, Kiri-Maree Moore wants to put humanity first. She views ‘Humanity as the central stakeholder’ in all decision-making processes. A decision that ropes in the best interest and concern of ‘you and I’ will always succeed in adding value to our pursuit. “Taking the equation further for collective benefit and multiplying on this chain of ‘you and I’ will entail a more inclusive and egalitarian society for everyone. That will be a new brand of leadership”, adds Kiri-Maree Moore.
An ideal leader must make a roadmap pertaining to every valid concern, decision, and execution method that caters to people at large. That demands reasonable and fair use of human intelligence in mobilizing thoughts and actions. Recent studies affirm that the human brain works more like a muscle. The intelligence muscle gets stronger and sharper in its pursuit the more we train it in a focused way. If the goal to achieve ‘human interests first’ is placed at the heart of our pursuit, it will change the order of things. ‘Positive results and changes shall come off when the new-age leadership pattern embraces ’empathy’ and persists in training the human intelligence muscle towards holistic upliftment.
Mastering the Human Intelligence Muscle
The human brain can adapt to new changes in the environment or modify its response to any abrupt circumstances. It is constantly in the process of charting new territories – ordering and reordering. When faced with a new problem, nerve cells or neurons in the brain get triggered and start communicating in a vastly complicated network of nerve cells. That results in new ideas and approaches to problems. Kiri-Maree Moore believes that if we consistently train the human intelligence muscle under expert guidance, our capacity for new ideas and solutions will magnify. The secret to mastering it lies in stimulating brain cells to seek new ways to do things consistently.
Guiding innovation in leadership strategy and thinking, Kiri-Maree Moore launched Decision Velocity Global to help people train in strengthening the human intelligence muscle. She encourages shunning the non-performing old leadership pattern and replacing it with problem-solving methods from the perspective of humanity as stakeholders. She thinks empathetic orientation and a humane point of view shall determine the future leadership for a sustainable growth ecosystem.
As the world moves into newer realities and challenges by the day, new ways of solutions and thinking are becoming a requirement. A sustainable future needs a collaborative approach with the harmonious engagement of all parties concerned. It is not feasible for fierce individualistic competition. Therefore, ongoing training of the human intelligence muscle will pave for a change in the conversation and vision of leadership.
