Chris Schafer & Brent Carter, Authors, Intrepid Professionals: How Principles from the Military Mindset Build Extraordinary Leaders, Teams, and Businesses

In a world where adaptation to chaos is a consistent requirement, leaders need an intrepid mindset - a mode of seeing, thinking, and acting that is hyper-vigilant. There are few challenging areas that need intrepid mindsets more than conflict management.  The greatest business leaders we have observed leverage three principles that drive success in conflict management: intention, intelligence gathering, and creating a space for collaboration. This doesn’t necessarily mean jumping into an argument and throat punching a bully—okay, sometimes that is required, but not always. Instead, it means to engage in the reality of the conflict, to examine why the conflict exists, and to search out any overlooked context that could help resolve the conflict.

“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy, but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.” - Plato.

Music permeates my earliest memories and has always been the unique lense through which I view the world. From the age of four I began my academic music study, and at 20 I travelled to Austria to embark on my professional musical career. I dedicated years of study to the double bass, violone, and Orchestral Direction, played and collaborated with renowned European orchestras, and composed De Otros Paisajes Sonoros, which premiered at the Plaza Mayor de Madrid.

Research at the Harvard Business School has shown that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) – the ability to manage our own emotions and connect to the emotions of others – counts for twice as much as IQ and technical skills combined in determining who will be successful in their career and in life.  This is true if you are a CEO, the VP of Sales or Finance, or an individual contributor.

Being a CEO may not be the loneliest job in the world but it certainly competes. When I was advising the Chairman and CEO of a multi national trading corporation, he once said rather wistfully: “You know what the trouble is: everyone wants to give you good news and that’s usual. But it’s worse than that because the so called good news is based on what they think “good” looks like. So what happens when they don’t really know?”

As my clients began to emerge from the global economic turmoil that began in 2008, they indicated they had learned numerous lessons—the most important one: When leaders make good decisions, little else matters. When they refuse to make decisions, or show a pattern of making bad ones, nothing else matters. As I helped these leaders position themselves for the new economy, I began to see what others didn’t see.
