I regret missing the interview today with Larry, but will connect to the recording as the link becomes available.
I continue to ponder the concepts of complexity thinking. I am wondering how accountability is seen as effectively exercised under the complexity thinking rubric? I believe accountability has relevance to the understanding of leaders as “destabilizers who encourage disequilibrium and disrupt existing patterns of behavior” (Leadership Myth #3). This certainly would be a form of change agent behavior–a positive form of leadership when a system’s stasis is prohibiting innovation. However, it seems such a leader still needs to be have a vision of some outcome, to which the leader is accountable, in order to assess a current process and then seek to destabilize in hopes of reaching that better outcome.
