Stop Being Comfortable & Start Being Motivated

Stop Being Comfortable & Start Being Motivated | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Like most, you probably don’t like new things that you can’t control.

You prefer to be in your comfort zone.

(From the article): As we head into the New Year, ask yourself, “Am I too comfortable?”

 

Ask, “What do I want to accomplish?”

 

Then, make a decision to leave your comfort zone.

 

Don’t sit there any longer.

 

Don’t settle anymore.

 

And of course, don’t be comfortable.

 

What do you need to leave your comfort zone to achieve?

Your leadership journey is unique to you, but there are three distinct stages almost every leader will go through on their way to the top. The best ones make moving through the levels look easy. But it isn’t.

Be conscious of the new skills you’ll need. Be aware that the old skills are still needed on top of the new ones. And know that you’ll need help. None of the world’s best leaders today got there alone.

Stage 1 - Expert at "doing"

Stage 2 - Team Leader.

Stage 3 - Multi-functionnal leadership

Going from Stage 1 to Stage 2 is the biggest step....

Le passage du Stage 1 au Stage 2 est le plus difficile.  L'expert doit apprendre à ne plus faire les choses.  Plusieurs experts promus gestionnaire ont une tendance au micro-management, à être plus intéressés par la méthode que par le résultat, à penser qu'il possède LA bonne façon de faire les choses ...

That quote kickstarted my own reading habits and helps me regularly read over 100 books a year.
Charlie Munger is the billionaire business partner of Warren Buffett and the Vice Chairman at Berkshire Hathaway, one of the largest companies in the world. He’s also one of the smartest people on the planet — his lecture on the psychology of human misjudgment is the best 45 minutes you might spend this year.
Over the years Munger’s compiled a list of book recommendations that has served me well. A lot of these books will help you become more valuable by seeing the world for what it really is and gaining unique ideas and insights.

#Leadership The Eight Habits Of Remarkably Coachable Leaders

#Leadership The Eight Habits Of Remarkably Coachable Leaders | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

In my executive coaching work, one of the most important traits that differentiates high potential leaders is their learning agility.

 

In succession planning discussions, organizations identify leaders who are learning agile because these people quickly learn how to be effective in new and different situations.

 

Organizations hire executive coaches to prepare these leaders for challenging and stretch assignments. Based on my work with these executives, I have distilled eight practices that differentiate the coaching clients who made the greatest gains vs. those that did not. Whether you are being coached by your manager or by an executive coach, these practices will make the difference in your learning agility and impact.

From Individuals to Teams: the Importance of Emotional Intelligence - Meeteor

From Individuals to Teams: the Importance of Emotional Intelligence - Meeteor | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Inspired by Goleman’s work, researchers Vanessa Druskat and Steven Wolff looked at emotional intelligence at the group level. They found that “just like individuals, the most effective teams are emotionally intelligent ones,” and that “a group’s Emotional Intelligence isn’t simply the sum of its members.”
Instead, if you think about a group as one entity, a group’s emotional intelligence is its ability to create a shared set of norms that manage the emotional process. These norms help a group build trust, establish identity, and achieve results. By establishing norms at three levels of interaction – the individuals within a team, the team itself, and the team interacting with other teams – leaders can help their teams build awareness of and manage emotions.
