Rohn: The 4 Powerful Ways to Change a Bad Habit

Rohn: The 4 Powerful Ways to Change a Bad Habit | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
No one understands as I do the inherent difficulty in changing old and persistent habits. But habits begin to change when we begin to change our perceptions.


Most of us don’t experience a cataclysmic transformation. No, for most of us change comes as an evolutionary process of almost imperceptible changes. We just keep nudging ourselves in the right direction, forming one or two better habits.


But what really makes us sit up and take notice? What really causes us to shed our old habits and take action?

(From the article): The best definition for “resolve” I’ve ever heard came from a schoolgirl in Foster City, California. Many years ago, I was lecturing about success to a group of bright kids at a junior high school. I asked, “Who can tell me what ‘resolve’ means?” Several hands went up, and I did get some pretty good definitions. But the last was the best. A shy girl from the back of the room got up and said with quiet intensity, “I think resolve means promising yourself you will never give up.” That’s it! That’s the best definition I’ve ever heard: Promise yourself you’ll never give up.

Purpose is important for leaders today. It will become increasingly vital in the future. We are entering a great age of empowerment for both employees and customers. Employees will demand the right to choose who they work for, which tribes they join and which products they associate with. Purpose will be the basis of much of this choice, and the greatest leaders will rally around missions that offer the chance to have dramatic positive impact. 

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, November 5, 9:56 AM

Your values will define your purpose.  That's why values-based leadership is and always will be, so important.

This article provides a useful guide to sharpen leadership skills based on these classic and popular models.

Tony Adams's curator insight, November 6, 3:42 PM

I'm familiar with some of these models, but certainly not all of them.  There are a few other models that are not on the list.  I think the message here is that there are different leadership models for different situations.  


Whilst these models are all useful, don't get sucked into thinking that all models will work all the time.  Don't drown in buzzwords, concepts, famous names and complex theories...be prepared to step back, think about your team, your environment, your own skill set - and develop an approach that works for you.

Leadership Is About Enabling The Full Potential In Others

Leadership Is About Enabling The Full Potential In Others | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

The 21st century leader must have the ability to make the most out of every situation. They are courageous and not afraid to challenge the status quo and push the boundaries to make things better. Because of these qualities and many others, the best leaders know how to get the most out of people; they enable the full potential in others.

(From the article): No matter how much potential an employee has, it can remain dormant if not managed rightly and properly nourished with the right ingredients. A great leader will never allow an employee’s potential to go unnoticed or to lose its momentum .Realizing potential to its fullest often requires breaking through barriers and creating new paradigms. As such, the 21st century employee must see what others don’t, do what others won’t and keep pushing when prudence says quit. Today’s leaders are not just looking for people to do their jobs better, but to recreate their jobs in their own image – discovering new standards along the way to increase productivity, sustainability and opportunities to impact the bottom line.

(From the article): Senior-level employees are sometimes wary of hiring overly creative or big-idea types. Insecurities creep up as long-term employees are made to feel obsolete or replaceable by the potential new hire. Instead, hire that dreamer and take it as an opportunity to learn from millennials and their “dream big” mentalities. It is refreshing, particularly in a creative environment, to have a steady stream of new ideas. This is something your clients will especially love.

The Leader Who Wasn't There

The Leader Who Wasn't There | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
The prevailing story is that we have more distractions, more information and more decisions pressing our lives than ever before. Our attention span is shrinking; as little as 20 seconds according to some experts. Leaders in many organizations are stretched to breaking; juggling meetings, emails, inquiries and issues. As we manage the task in front of us we are already considering the next or perhaps mulling over a more complex issue that awaits our attention.

This frantic mental traffic puts us into a sort of trance. We see without seeing. We listen without hearing. We are here but not present. We may be in the room but our mind is in some faraway place or time.

So what does this mean in practical terms?

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.
