Seven soft skills that every leader should develop

Seven soft skills that every leader should develop | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Business prowess and the ability to command and lead have for a long time been associated with efficient management and leadership, but big changes are on the way. Together with various transitions in business, management is also changing to incorporate more soft skills than ever. A recent study from Harvard Business Review demonstrated that the requirements for a leadership position have shifted to include many soft skills. Here are some of the most important soft skills every manager should develop and cultivate.

(From the article): Humility essentially means that a leader is modest about his or her position in the rank, and refrains from adopting the management style of a power-hungry megalomaniac. A good leader is able to allow others to lead with him, because they know how to balance confidence and humility. Instead of feeding his or her ego with the power and authority that comes with the function, a great leader is able to blend in and set a rhythm for the whole company to follow.

A great list and the only other and most important quality I would add is respect for self and genuine respect for others.  It is the glue that holds people, relationships and organizations together.

OK, librarians.  You are leaders on your campus and in your district.  Choose one or two of these to work on this year.

Think of reading body language as a detective trying to solve a crime. No one piece of evidence on its own is worth much. However, when several pieces of evidence point in the same direction - start paying attention.

In a world where we are being inundated with data and information, I have noticed that we are losing a bit of our foundational interpersonal skills.

 

Every day I challenge myself to disconnect from technology to genuinely connect with the people who I am with.  Are you with me?  What are your thoughts?

 

Make it a great day!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 1, 2013 7:46 PM

This is incredibly important.

Cruise Line Class's comment, August 2, 2013 8:21 AM
I agree Ivon....with all the destractions we have -- it certainly takes discipline:)

Why is Storytelling so Powerful? A Look at What it does to our Brain

Why is Storytelling so Powerful? A Look at What it does to our Brain | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Storytelling is one of the most overused and underused techniques at the same time. In this post, we are revealing what storytelling does to our brains.

Long before we had writing as we know it there has been an oral tradition of storytelling. This post looks at the science around storytelling.

Learn about how a story "can put your whole brain to work" and why "our brains become more active when we tell stories." Find out why the brain "learns to ignore certain overused words and phrases" and much more. If you enjoy telling stories, writing stories, or listening to stories check out this post to learn more!

Just think about all the schemas (pockets of information) we have for everything we do.  Even though we have never taken part in many activities, we could easily build plausible stories based on those schemas and even devise theories, which may be testable. This is imagination which is one example of brain power, audrey@homeschoolsource.co.uk

"Anything you’ve experienced, you can get others to experience the same. Or at least, get their brain areas that you’ve activated that way, active too:"

 

"use simple, yet heartfelt language."

"Quick last fact: Our brain learns to ignore certain overused words and phrases that used to make stories awesome"

"our brains become more active when we tell stories."

Managing is like teaching - it's all about getting the best out of those under your responsibility - not under you in terms of knowledge, though.
