How and Why to Be a Leader (Not a Wannabe)

How and Why to Be a Leader (Not a Wannabe) | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

We need a new generation of leaders. And we need it now. We're in the midst of a Great Dereliction — a historic failure of leadership, precisely when we need it most. Hence it's difficult, looking around, to even remember what leadership is.

Excerpt from Umair's blog post: 


We're surrounded by people who are expert at winning — elections, deals, titles, bonuses, bailouts, profit. And often, we're told: they're the ones we should look up to — because it's the spoils and loot that really matter.


But you know and I know: mere winners are not true leaders — not just because gaming broken systems is nothing but an empty charade of living; but because life is not a game. It isn't about what you have, and how much — but what you do, and why — if you're to live a life that matters.

Don Cloud's curator insight, August 29, 2013 11:32 PM

Here's a question (asked several different ways) every leader should be able to answer (and if you can't then perhaps this is something you need to think long and hard about).

 

What is your "why"?  That is, "why" do you want to lead?  What is your personal leadership purpose?  What is your individual purpose in leading?

 

If you can't answer the question of your own "why", then you may find it extremely difficult to create the "why" of your organization or understand the individual "why" of each of your people.

 

(Hint: As a leader, try to answer the question without referencing yourself)

The Value of Positive Disruptive Leadership  

The Value of Positive Disruptive Leadership   | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
“Increasing globalization, widespread technological innovation and pressure on business to customize products and services have created an international business environment that would be unrecognizable to the manager of fifteen years ago.”

While the above comment could very easily apply to the current corporate world reality, this is in fact a 1995 description of the challenges facing leadership outlined in a government-funded special report titled Enterprising Nation: Renewing Australia’s Managers to Meet the Challenges of the Asia–Pacific Century. This report was a landmark management and leadership development blueprint that became widely known as The Karpin Report.

The Best Leaders Know These 6 Tricks to Being More Approachable

Not being approachable could be your biggest leadership blind spot

donhornsby's curator insight, July 25, 9:30 AM
(From the article): If you're struggling with approachability because of persistent shyness or fear of appearing vulnerable, you can still overcome the hurdle breaking the practices down into smaller steps and setting incremental goals for yourself that include practicing with people outside of work--on a plane, in line at the store, or in your neighborhood. For example, a micro-step for number 1 might be making the first move with one person at one event. The easiest way to do this is to scan the room for anyone else who is standing alone. Being approachable doesn't mean changing your core personality, it's simply a way to ensure that more people have access to you and what you have to offer.

 Becoming more approachable will have numerous benefits in your career. You'll gain access to more information faster and grow your network by being known as someone who is interesting and engaging. Awareness of the importance of being approachable is a starting point. Then, these six tips can help you build that awareness and the skills you need to sustain and invite future conversations around the office.

Mental Models I Find Repeatedly Useful — Medium

Mental Models I Find Repeatedly Useful — Medium | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Around 2003 I came across Charlie Munger’s 1995 speech, The Psychology of Human Misjudgment, which introduced me to how behavioral economics can be applied in business and investing. More profoundly, though, it opened my mind to the power of seeking out and applying mental models across a wide array of disciplines.
A mental model is just a concept you can use to help try to explain things (e.g. Hanlon’s Razor — “never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by carelessness.”). There are tens of thousands of mental models, and every discipline has their own set that you can learn through coursework, mentorship, or first-hand experience.
There is a much smaller set of concepts, however, that come up repeatedly in day-to-day decision making, problem solving, and truth seeking. As Munger says, “80 or 90 important models will carry about 90% of the freight in making you a worldly‑wise person.”
This post is my attempt to enumerate the mental models that are repeatedly useful to me. This set is clearly biased from my own experience and surely incomplete. I hope to continue to revise it as I remember and learn more.

Give the Gift of Listening - People Development Network

Give the Gift of Listening - People Development Network | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
How often have you been in what you call “a conversation” (for lack of a better word) that is completely one-sided?  For example, one of the people in the conversation is doing 90% of the talking and even if the other person manages to get in a word or two, the other person either responds immediately or continues on their rant.  One of my favourite life lessons is to “listen to understand, not to respond”.  Unfortunately, in my experience, 90% of the population does not do this.  They want to help.  They want to respond.  They want to be heard.  They want their opinion to be heard.  They want their opinion to be adapted…..

On a more positive note, I have been fortunate enough be on the receiving end of the gift of listening.  It is an amazing feeling to really have someone listen to what you have to say, to be curious about what you are saying and why you are saying it.  Instead of responding with their opinion or their experience, they respond with empathy and understanding.  It provides an incredible connection between two people.  Listening is an important skill for all of us, but as Leaders, it is even more important.  As a Leader, listening to others gives you the opportunity to really connect with your colleagues and to  understand how they are feeling about what is going on in your organization.  It also brings respect for you from your team because they know that their opinion and thoughts are being heard and are valuable.

Imagine how it would feel if you could give someone the gift of listening.  It takes a lot of practice and discipline to control the urge to provide input and opinion, but most of the time, that is not what people want.  They want to be SEEN, HEARD, and UNDERSTOOD.  This is a common need of all human beings.

I urge you to try these few things.

Suffering from Burnout? 3 Ways to Get Yourself—and Your Team—Back on Track | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Like most people, chances are that you were enthusiastic about your current job when you were first hired. You were excited about the new role, its challenges, and the people you would be working with.

But now for various reasons, you or your direct reports may be struggling to stay afloat. Perhaps as a manager you have reached a stage where you feel discouraged or frustrated—or perhaps you see your team’s morale or performance floundering.

Groupthink: avoid the drive to conformity

Groupthink: avoid the drive to conformity | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Back in 2007 I ran a session for senior traders in a financial services organisation.
 
A participant was presenting a project about a complex new financial product to the room. As the presentation rolled on, one person, let’s call him Bill, kept looking at the PowerPoint and back at his colleagues. The rest of the group were enthralled by this clever way to make money.

When the slide show ended, the presenter asked for questions. The first one he got was from Bill and this was it: “Is this even legal?”.

Did the group pause to think about Bill’s question? Did the presenter answer it? Not exactly. What happened was this: the group laughed. One person threw a pen cap at Bill.

Four Ways Positive Leaders Are Different from Other Smart, Hardworking Leaders

Four Ways Positive Leaders Are Different from Other Smart, Hardworking Leaders | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

I am feeling great this week. It must be the benefit of a vacation—not only did we enjoy wonderful weather in a beautiful place, I unplugged from the news as well as from social media.

Doing this also removed me from the seemingly endless and snarky commentary that accompanies any substantial story these days.  It reminded me that anyone can point out what is wrong, what doesn’t work, and what is unfair.   The insidiousness of the critical perspective is that it attracts additional criticism. Then, a big pile of what’s wrong is mounded up on the table.  It’s hard to see anything else!

But is that useful?

How to Watch Out for Blind Spots in Your Leadership 

How to Watch Out for Blind Spots in Your Leadership  | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

It’s the tricky thing about blind spots: Everybody has them, but often we don’t even know they exist until they cause a problem. 


All of us have blind spots, and most of us at some point have made a bad decision because of them. But when a leader has a blind spot, the repercussions spread to include the entire organization—and sometimes even its stakeholders and customers.

(From the article): So, any time you make a claim, no matter how small, and display inconsistent behavior, you shatter the comfort zone –– and weaken your bond of trust with others. As a result, anything thought to be predictable in the future may be treated as suspect. The fact is, everything you do in life sends a message. So, make sure to practice what you preach.

Rising Strong: Brené Brown on the Physics of Vulnerability and What Resilient People Have in Common

Rising Strong: Brené Brown on the Physics of Vulnerability and What Resilient People Have in Common | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
“There is no science without fancy, and no art without facts,” Vladimir Nabokov famously proclaimed. Today, hardly anyone embodies this sentiment more fully than Brené Brown, who came of age as a social scientist in an era when the tyranny of facts trivialized the richness of fancy and the human experience was squeezed out of the qualitative in the service of the quantitative, the two pitted as polarities. But like Susan Sontag, who recognized how polarities limit and imprison us, Brown defied these dogmatic dichotomies and went on to become what she calls a “researcher-storyteller” — a social scientist who studies the complexities and nuances of the human experience with equal regard for data and story, enriching story with data and ennobling data with story in a quest to “find knowledge and truth in a full range of sources.”

In Rising Strong (public library), Brown builds upon her earlier work on vulnerability to examine the character qualities, emotional patterns, and habits of mind that enable people to transcend the catastrophes of life, from personal heartbreak to professional collapse, and emerge not only unbroken but more whole.

You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Great Leader

You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Great Leader | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Many people believe leadership is something that's conferred along with a title or attained when you direct a team of people, but true leadership is never about authority or power. It's about helping others grow, and that's something anyone can do.

 

If it's your desire to influence and have an impact on others, you have leadership qualities. And if you can inspire people to do something they thought they couldn't do, demonstrate how the impossible is possible, believe in someone when they didn't believe in themselves, you're already a leader.

 

People don't set out to be great leaders, they set out to make a difference. It's never about the role or the title, but about influencing others, helping and supporting them.
