The art of noticing is the art of leadership and management.

Good managers and leaders notice what is happening around them. They develop skills to solve systemic issues.

Here’s a video digging deeper into this:


Noticing isn’t enough though, there needs to something.

This is why I’ve found creative pursuits, such as photo be so helpful in building this ability of noticing.

With photories and capturing what is important in the moment.


And this is the same for leaders and managers. They must notice how work flows, how people come tories.

This is photography. This is leadership.

  • Noticing what is happening and studying the world around you.
  • Choosing what to exclude.
  • Drawing a frame around what is useful, helpful, meaningful, important.
  • And telling stories.


There’s a very real reality that I have pushed this analogy tories.

The art of noticing is the art of leadership.
