The habit that will consistently make you more powerful at work

The habit that will consistently make you more powerful at work | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

When we try to do things in a rush, we are usually destined to fail from the start — something I learned from my own mistakes. Faster doesn’t necessarily mean better.

“The strongest of all warriors are these two — Time and Patience" ~ Tolstoy, HT @faisal_hoque

donhornsby's curator insight, February 11, 9:54 AM

(From the article): Being a patient listener allows us to absorb the full message, both spoken and unspoken. Being patiently mindful of the speaker’s every gesture, facial expression, and change in tone allows for a fuller understanding of the underlying issues.

TIME ALLOWS FOR SMARTER DECISIONS.

The best ideas seldom come to mind immediately. The longer we take to ponder a problem, the easier our brains may find it to fit everything into place. It is often in the quiet moments when inspiration strikes, and it hardly ever happens when we are desperate to make a decision. An attitude of patience helps us to smooth over those inevitable bumps in the road, and we usually reach the best path in our own time.

 

Any decision can be made quickly, but the consequences of those choices live for much longer. We live in a world where split-second decisions and decisive actions are constantly encouraged at our workplaces. How much smoother would things be if we all took the time to make the right decision the first time? It is all too easy to be hijacked by pressures and emotions and rushed into a hasty mistake.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 11, 5:07 PM

Patience allows us to pause and listen closely to others, the world, and ourselves.

Start with Why: How great leaders inspire action | Classic, Video TED.com

"People don't buy what you do, but buy why you believe it."

 

Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership all starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?" His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers ...


Belief...  


The law of diffusion of innovation:  TIVO, the single highest quality product on the market, great market conditions.  Yet a commercial failure.

For Dr. King's "I have a dream" speech, there where no invitations.  The focus was on belief.  250,000 people showed up to hear him speak.  They showed up for themselves for what they believed for America.  25% of the audience was white. 

“[Martin Luther King, Jr.] gave the ‘I have a dream’ speech, not the ‘I have a plan’ speech.”

From one of the comments:  "Therefore, good leadership is not pushing and/or pulling people (normally done by top management) but acting so that people do it for themselves and by themselves."   - Deb

It's got to be about Why, not How: How Great Leaders Inspire Action, Simon Sinek

"Why FIRST:  Communication and the Golden Circle:  Why, How, What?  Inspire where others do not.  Profit is JUST a result NOT a reason for existing."

 

Simon's examples include Apple (why so innovative?), Martin Luther King (lead major change, Civil Rights movement), and the Wright brothers (controlled powered manned flight that others did not achieve, tho' were working on.)

Apple:  NOT, What we do, great computers.  Want to buy one?

RATHER:  Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo, we believe thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is making products that are beautifully designed, simple to use & user friendly.  We happen to make computers.  Want to buy one?
