You dig for models where you possibly find them... "It is an old debating point: Do the times make the man, or does the man make the times?" IMHO: both do each other...:-)))


What a character!

This video is interesting to point out what leaders have to face in their life and in their work. But I think it focuses only on one thing: stress. The ability to face stress is certainly a part of a leader’s skills, but it’s not the only thing and maybe not the biggest one. But anyway, I liked the way Brent Douglas and David Woods spoke about stress. And I totally agree with them. In fact, we need to distinguish between good and bad stress. The good one will give the possibility to remain focus on the goals and the issues. Like Brent Douglas said, a leader has to face and deal with the issues even if it can hurt someone by taking a decision. If it’s necessary to fix the problem, the leader should take the decision.<br>The leader has to stay in a low stress zone to be efficient. Some stress can be good, but not so much stress! The thing he has to avoid is to transmit his stress to the group; it is not the point and not the right way to react. Last thing I want to talk about is what David Woods explained about the Yes/Maybe/No zones. It is true that being unclear and say “maybe” for a decision is not a good way to make things progress. We can take for example the case of Chinese people who doesn’t say “no” and stay in the “maybe” zone. As a leader, you should have a clear answer to give. If you can’t do it, just say “no” and don’t let the other people thinks it’s possible. Also saying “yes” to everything can be hazardous to the company. A leader should be able to take a real decision and bring clarity. This video is very helpful to understand the dangers of stress in the leadership. But it is too bad to focus only on that.

A truly great leader operates from the soul level, inspired by vision and inner wisdom as opposed to greed. Do you have what it takes to be a great leader?

Leadership is about helping a shared vision to emerge. We have an abundance of technicians in our organizations and they are good at telling people what their vision is, but rarely do I see bringing it all together.

The human ingenuity within any organisation are it's greatest competitive advantage. Yet according to the latest statistics, over half of todays workers are disengaged . When leaders are committed and actively working to engage, inspire and embolden – they unleash untapped potential and raise the bar not just on productivity, but on the value their organization contributes to all stakeholders.

I've been reading "Real Influence" by Robert Ullman and John Goulston (http://www.amazon.ca/Real-Influence-Persuade-Without-Pushing/dp/081442015X), and they talk about the importance of connecting authentically.  In Real Influence, Ullman and Goulston refer to this authenticity as "Connected Influence".

"...Human ingenuity within any organization is it's greatest competitive advantage". This quote alone made me scoop this resource. How do we tap into the resource that is our staff? Engaging with them in the classroom and in the hallways to build communication capacity is important. Inspiring staff to take risks is a tricky enterprise - leaders must value this sort of behavior. This means that attempts which result in failure must be cherished, not scrutinized as they often tend to be.

Lack of Goals: Sometimes, in our lives and in our career, we feel that we have "hit the ceiling."  We feel that  there is no where to go further. Our lives have reached a full-stop.  Yes. It is true that this does happen. But , to succeed, we have to sense this before we reach the stage when we think that we cannot progress further and take positive steps on the next part of our lives and career.  We should have a clear vision where we want to go.  It is perfectly fine to make changes to your goals when the need arises, to think about altering your course. We can always have a list of excuses, but to succeed, we need clarity of thoughts, self discipline and a sense of self worth.

David Hain's curator insight, September 16, 2013 3:41 AM

There are many reasons - the important thing is to experience and earn from it.  None of us learned to walk withoutfalling over!
