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, 2016 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, 2016 5:07 PM

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

Roy Sheneman, PhD's insight:

The truth is we need managers and leaders.  The best leaders are surrounded by other good leaders who have strong managerial skills and abilities....both sets of people are desperately needed in our world today.

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, December 9, 2014 1:41 AM

This table describing the differences between management and leadership is thought provoking.  It could be my bias but isn't being on the left hand side more attractive?  The language seems far more appealing. 


However, we need great managers as well as great leaders and what strikes me is that the behaviours are so different.  That is why making the change from manager to leader can be very difficult in an organization, why people need some help with it and why identifying leaders early in the careers makes sense - before their habits of management become too engrained.

Greg Wisniewski's curator insight, December 9, 2014 4:13 PM

“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things" and "You lead people and manage things" are describing the difference for me.

Many organizations espouse a set of “leadership competencies”; lists of abilities or traits that their leaders and leaders-in-training need to get proficient at.

Keep practicing until you feel the behavior is ingrained and sustainable; this is like developing a new habit. Leadership is a journey, not a destination, so have patience with yourself and know that the best leaders always have something they need to get better at.

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

 

The Drucker School of Management and Wharton Business School both offer courses in mindfulness meditation. Virginia Tech is sponsoring "contemplative practices for a technological society," a conference for engineers who integrate contemplative disciplines into their work. Google offers courses in meditation and yoga

 

Aetna, Merck, General Mills--the list goes on--all are exploring how meditation can help their leaders and employees agilely thrive in today's fast-paced business environment. And the benefits are widely publicized: sustained attention span, improved multi-tasking abilities, strengthened immune system, increased emotional intelligence, improved listening skills...And there is science behind such claims.

When top business schools highlight the importance of mindfulness with courses for future leaders, we now have precedence for including it in educational leadership training.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 15, 2013 7:01 PM

I like the ideas that mindfulness is combined with Peter Drucker's work and that large companies are looking at meditation as something that will benefit employees.

Influence, Service and the 100 Best Quotes on Leadership - Forbes

Influence, Service and the 100 Best Quotes on Leadership - Forbes | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

"A great quote can provide personal inspiration and can be used to educate others. The contributor shares his top 100 leadership quotes of all time."

 

Excerpted (some of my own favorites taken from Kevin's list):

 

You don’t need a title to be a leader. –Multiple Attributions  A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way. —John Maxwell  My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence. —General Montgomery  Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations. —Peter Drucker  Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has. —Margaret Mead  The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born. —Warren Bennis  To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less. —Andre Malraux   He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander. —Aristotle

 

Deb:  It seems to be true, per another Scoop, that leadership, in a sense, doesn't really exist, from Peter Drucker's perspective.  It is about trust, respect, leader development opportunity, influence and community (relationship / networks / feedback.)   That's my perspective on the leadership-train-talk.

From Humble Leader to Narcissist: Where Are You on the Continuum?

From Humble Leader to Narcissist: Where Are You on the Continuum? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Typically, narcissism is historically associated with physical beauty.

You may recall that in Greek mythology, Narcissus was the handsome young man who became so enchanted with the image of himself in the pool that he could not pull away.

Today we hear about a leader who has narcissistic tendencies, but it’s not so much about their physical beauty as their strong, offensive ego.

Where do fit on the narcissistic leadership continuum? Pinpoint your spot –

Be on a mission that doesn't suck

Be on a mission that doesn't suck | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’re job hopping, serially starting companies, or constantly burned out, ask yourself: why is this happening? Chances are, it’s as simple as not being on a mission that you care about. When you’re really doing something you love, stress can actually improve productivity (this isn’t necessarily founded in science, just personal observation), whereas when you’re drudging along, stress compounds an already adverse circumstance.

 

So what makes a mission that doesn’t suck?

 

The best missions, it would seem, are those keep you cranking day after day. They’re ambitious, improbable, and fundamentally thrilling. Some of the loftiest are missions that can never quite be fulfilled. Google’s famously is “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.” Starbucks wants to “inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.” Whole Foods believes that“companies, like individuals, must assume their share of responsibility as tenants of Planet Earth.”

Good question Jean-Phillipe. In my experience, things like possible organizational changes or possible layoffs are the types of issues that can lead to lots of fear. My guiding light is to talk openly about the reality the team is facing and what is being done about it. It is key to make it safe for staff to openly share their concerns and address their concerns openly. The opposite will result in negative watercooler talk and growing distortions that make everything worse. Big topic here.
Jean-Philippe D'HALLUIN's comment, January 10, 2013 4:37 PM
Thank You Al for your point of view. Conscious fear may be acceptable only if followed by positive transformal action.
Michal Zachar's comment, January 10, 2013 4:40 PM
All mankind is in bondage. Each faith is slavery (and unlimited faith in the power of love). Yes every so-called "giving a heart full of love" (not because we think we can, but because we want), every religion, every church, every synagogue, every such temple is nothing but a prison with open doors. A door to them are deliberately open so provoked in you the illusion that you are not in jail. And what will happen when i close this door?
