Are you a TOP Leader?

Are you a TOP Leader? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Working through a series of jobs with varying roles in leadership and in the midst the worst economic recession since the depression, I have had the opportunity o view life and work through different lenses. Even as a true millennial I have experienced the good, the bad, and the great examples in leadership. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that you can’t get anywhere leading people without trust, optimism and perspective. These are, “TOP Leaders”

The #1 Rule of Leadership - "It's not about you"

The #1 Rule of Leadership - "It's not about you" | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Perform a search of “leadership” on Google and you will find dozens of listed leadership “rules” and “qualities” (most of which are very accurate).

 

But there is one primary axiom of leadership that trumps all others:

donhornsby's curator insight, August 27, 5:25 PM

(From the article) The most effective leaders follow Leadership Rule #1, and return to it during those leadership challenges that require the very best of their leadership abilities. They understand that you cannot change expectations, alter perceptions, and motivate others unless you maintain the ability to influence them in a positive manner. When followers sense that your leadership decisions are made with other priorities, they will not trust you. Without trust, you will lose the ability maintain the positive influence necessary to motivate and inspire others, and you will have limited the value of your leadership investment.

 

Whether you are a brand new leader, or someone with years of experience, the next time you find yourself faced with a leadership decision, pause and remind yourself of this:

 

“It’s not about you.”

6 Steps To Becoming The Best You

6 Steps To Becoming The Best You | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

The greatest achievement in life is simple - Just be the best ‘you’ that is possible. It is, honestly, the greatest honor we can give to ourselves.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 22, 10:34 AM

(From the article): Being your best self is synonymous with personal development and it always starts with becoming more aware of who you are and what patterns have been running you to date. Here is the truth; you cannot expect to become the best version of yourself while you are still running all of the same old thought and behavior patterns, which have gotten you to where you are now.. It all has to change and if you are truly committed to becoming the absolute best you, then this change has to be deliberate. In fact, it cannot just be change, it must be transformation.

Don Cloud's curator insight, August 26, 4:18 PM

It is not enough for a leader to have courage ... rather, the most powerful leaders must both exude courage in the face of danger and more importantly must draw out and energize the courage of their people to face and defeat that danger.

The Business of Behavioral Economics

The Business of Behavioral Economics | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

You've done everything—endured diets, purged your freezer of Ben & Jerry's, and educated yourself on fat, sugar, and calories. Yet, you can't manage to lose weight.

 

What's wrong with you? According to standard economic theory, which gives humans (perhaps too much) credit for making rational choices, those efforts should be enough to change your behavior. If you know the consequences but still get fat, you must want to be overweight.

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership and management are two distinctly different but complimentary skill sets that all companies need. Leaders make sure the organization is doing the right things, while managers make sure they do those things right. Leadership is about coping with change while management is about coping with complex issues. Both are qualities that can be learned and both require constant focus on improvement. Especially when the organization is facing potential adaptive challenges.

Eric Chan Wei Chiang's curator insight, August 12, 11:25 PM

These five steps may seem very simple but they are often taken for granted. To give direction a leader must take ownership and have a vision. Managing conflict and providing protection are often not pleasant and require great maturity from leaders. Shaping the norms and clarifying roles is often not given a very high priority as it involves intangible people skills.

I like e.g. the factors of the limiting the caffeine intake, of breathing (!!!, very important, indeed...), of sleeping... yeahhh.. "ground rules"... Good.... as I am always saying, to find the balance, the sweet spot... I would add that it's different person per person... It's not at all the "golden middle"... Some will work better with a little bit bigger dose of stress, with rather less but everybody will be somewhere in the "arena" that's for sure...:-)))

3 Rules of Engagement for Making You and Your Organization Stronger

3 Rules of Engagement for Making You and Your Organization Stronger | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

A house is only as strong as its foundation. A solid foundation gives the house a firm base allowing for less structural issues over time. This is also true for an organization. A strong foundation allows the organization to maintain an un-fractured workplace where individuals, who make up this foundation, reduce cracks in communication, relationships, and help keep the focus on the goals of the organization. An un-fractured workplace impacts employee engagement, corporate culture, and even the bottom line. The challenge most organizations face when building their behavioral organizational foundation is creating an intentional plan for how to strengthen the human supports of their structure. Rules of engagement can add that extra support, like rebar added to concrete when creating the base of a house

The science behind a happy and productive workforce

The science behind a happy and productive workforce | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Humans have been fascinated by their own behaviour for thousands of years. Understanding each other has been critical for survival – both as Neanderthals and in today’s corporate world. A successful employee will not only possess the right skills, but their working style often matches their role requirements. However, an individual’s working behaviour type isn’t always apparent on the CV, so how can you gain an additional understanding of whether they’re the right fit for your company

(From the article): Knowing what motivates your staff helps to maintain a productive and happy workforce, making them more likely to stay on board. High dominance individuals tend to be motivated by power and authority and drive results, whilst those with high influence are more likely to be motivated by public praise and recognition. Those with high influence are usually more suited to careers that involve working with others in a talkative environment.
