Servant Leadership: A Virtuous Cycle of Service | Robert K. Greenleaf | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Words matter. The right word makes a world of difference in what’s communicated and understood. Mark Twain observed, “The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lighting and a lightning bug.”

A classic quotation from Greenleaf is: “The servant-leader isservant first. It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead.” Greenleaf held a high and noble view of service and envisioned servant-leaders helping their followers navigate Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

donhornsby's curator insight, Today, 8:31 AM
Overcoming mind games, facing our failures and seeing them as learning opportunities are all positive steps, but ultimately they’ll be of little use if the process doesn’t produce a change in behavior. Will it take a heart attack before we change our diet or take up exercise? Rarely do such experiences come out of the blue; the warning signs, the failures, were there to be seen—golden opportunities to prompt us to change. All too often though, the tendency is to find out more and more about our problems but do little to solve them. It’s one reason why diet and exercise magazines, books and websites are so popular, especially at the turn of each year. But how many of us use the information they contain for more than a few weeks, persevering until failure turns to success?

6 Principles for Communicating a Powerful Change Vision

6 Principles for Communicating a Powerful Change Vision | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
There are six core principles that organizations, senior leaders, and those involved in the transformation task force must embrace throughout the process.

1. Simplicity

The change vision must come in many forms, and you must be able to communicate it in both short and long form. If you can't articulate a powerful vision in five minutes or less, in which the listener understands and can envision the outcome, you need to go back to the drawing board.

I have seen this go sideways when a leadership team invests many hours in developing a great vision that will align with a solid plan of attack, but then they assume they can communicate this vision in five or 10 minutes at the company meeting. If it takes a long time to develop the change vision, it will also take a long time to communicate it until it sinks in. Keep it simple, and plan to overcommunicate.

donhornsby's curator insight, Today, 9:00 AM
Bad things happen to everyone, including happy people. Instead of complaining about how things could have been or should have been, happy people reflect on everything they’re grateful for. Then they find the best solution available to the problem, tackle it, and move on. Nothing fuels unhappiness quite like pessimism. The problem with a pessimistic attitude, apart from the damage it does to your mood, is that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy: if you expect bad things, you’re more likely to experience negative events. Pessimistic thoughts are hard to shake off until you recognize how illogical they are. Force yourself to look at the facts, and you’ll see that things are not nearly as bad as they seem.

Your Brain Has A “Shuffle” Button--Here’s How To Use It

Your Brain Has A “Shuffle” Button--Here’s How To Use It | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
In the early 1890s, everybody wanted the newest technological marvel. Democratic and affordable, the bicycle could cut people's commute to work in half and enable them to enjoy the countryside on the weekend. Thousands of bicycle mechanics appeared as if overnight, looking to make bicycles lighter, safer, more comfortable, and easier to pro­duce. They would tinker with ball bearings, rolled steel, differential gears, air-filled tires, and so on.
 
The more raw material you give your brain, the more connections it can make.

Many of these enthusiasts would later use what they’d learned in bicycle workshops to create greater transportation breakthroughs. Both of the Wright Brothers were bicycle mechanics. So was a man named Henry Ford, who watched mass production take hold at a time when cyclists began lobbying for better roads to be built. Before long, thanks to him, the modern automobile was ambling down them.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, February 21, 10:02 PM
The more raw material you give to the brain, the more creative it will become. The brain tends to shuffle through a lot of information before coming to a conclusion, a solution or and idea. The implications of this belief for school education is obvious, give students a content rich environment. What matters most greatly is for people to have access to diverse content, even if it is content that they are not professionally related to!

VUCA leadership: why you need it and how to develop it

VUCA leadership: why you need it and how to develop it | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

The US Army coined the acronym VUCA in the late 1990s to depict the radically different military threats that arise when conditions are ‘volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous’.
 
These four words have subsequently been adopted in the workplace, as they neatly encapsulate the turbulent and unpredictable nature of today’s business environment. If your organisation is to survive and thrive in a VUCA world, you need to rethink the way you develop your leaders.

Keep in mind that silence as an act of leadership is far from passive — it is an act of actively and generously listening. It requires the discipline of listening for what is needed to contribute to progress or make a difference in the things that matter most in this moment. It requires being present to what is vs. how you would like things to be. Sometimes the best thing a leader can do is let people speak up and speak out, despite their personal feelings about what is being said or how it is being said.

#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.
