#Leadership Don't let team drift run your team aground 

#Leadership Don't let team drift run your team aground  | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

You might be suffering from team drift and not know it. We’ve all heard stories of individuals who wake up one morning and wonder how they had drifted so far from their original hopes and dreams. The same thing can happen to teams.  


One of the most common complaints I hear from managers is, “I want to revitalize our team. We used to be a great team, but we’ve lost energy and focus.” 


These teams are suffering from what I call team drift – where a once high-performing team gradually loses its focus and capabilities without anyone noticing what’s happening. 


This is different from a sudden change that derails a team. Team drift is caused by a series of small things, each insignificant on its own, but which have a cumulative impact. Because it happens so slowly, it’s often not noticed until it’s too late. 


Team drift can occur for a variety of reasons.

Without Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness Doesn’t Work

Without Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness Doesn’t Work | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Mindfulness has become the corporate fad du jour, a practice widely touted as a fast-track to better leadership. But we suspect that not all the benefits laid at its feet actually belong there. Our research and analysis has revealed a complicated relationship between mindfulness and executive performance—one that is important for leaders to understand as they seek to develop in their careers.

 

Mindfulness is a method of shifting your attention inward to observe your thoughts, feelings, and actions without interpretation or judgment. A mindfulness practice often begins simply by focusing on your breath, noticing when your mind wanders, and then bringing it back to your breath. As you strengthen your ability to concentrate, you can then shift to simply noting your inner experience without getting lost in it at any point in your day. The benefits attributed to this kind of practice range from stronger relationships with others to higher levels of leadership performance.

The good and the bad of the latest corporate trend.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, September 11, 1:24 AM
How could we have forgotten that Mindfulness does not work without Emotional Intelligence, according to this Harvard article! We bandy the word Mindfulness as if it is a magic word which will help boost flagging employee energy levels without realising that we did not consider Emotional Intelligence as an important factor.
 
CCM Consultancy's curator insight, September 14, 1:31 AM

"Mindfulness practice helped an executive become more aware of his own high levels of anxiety. He realized that he had harshly high standards for himself at work, and held everyone else to these same rigid, perfectionistic expectations. By becoming aware of these tendencies, he also saw that while his workaholic ethic had gotten him his position, as a leadership strategy it no longer worked for him."

How to be an optimist, when you always see the negative

How to be an optimist, when you always see the negative | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Do you tend to see the positive, even in trying situations? Or do you immediately assume the worst and focus on the negative?

When it comes to how we view the world, most of us fall into one of two categories: optimist or pessimist. And according to experts, whatever category you fall into has a lot to do with your upbringing.

“From my experience, optimism is both a personality trait and a product of our environment,” says Karol Ward, LCSW, a licensed psychotherapist. “From an early age, babies and children pick up the emotional vibes in their homes. If the atmosphere is relaxed and loving, children blossom even if they innately have a tendency towards anxiety. But if the home environment is tense and filled with dysfunction, optimism is one of the first things to go. It's hard to be emotionally open and hopeful when that is not being modeled for you by your caretakers.”

Five Work Habits To Kick Before The End Of The Year

Five Work Habits To Kick Before The End Of The Year | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Kids are back in school. Pumpkin spice lattes are back in Starbucks. It’s official: Summer is over and the year is winding down.

 

But before it does, there might be a goal or two you committed to back in January that you’d still really love to make good on. Don’t worry–falling short on your New Year’s resolutions is totally normal. And even if you missed your chance to get back in the saddle at the six-month mark, there might still be some things you can do to make headway between now and the holidays. One tactic that might help? Cutting back.

 

Sometimes all you need to jump-start your progress is to ditch some of your routines, bad habits, and maybe even some of your other goals so you can redirect your energy where it counts. For inspiration, here’s what five Fast Company contributors–in their own ways, all experts on productivity and self-management–are kicking to the curb in order to end the year on a high note.

Copywriter. Designer. Illustrator. Filmmaker. With how competitive the world has become, it’s no wonder why we’re obsessed with titles.

 

Focusing on a speciality makes you more appealing to employers and shows clearly where your skills lie. It’s easier to focus on doing one thing great. Yet a growing crop of research and anecdotal evidence suggests that spending time and energy on unrelated tasks, hobbies, and interests can actually supercharge our ability to learn and grow, making us even better at all our work.

#Leadership Why Leaders Get Stuck at Average

#Leadership Why Leaders Get Stuck at Average | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Some leaders think they’re good leaders when they’re stuck at average.

We don’t automatically improve as time passes.  The longer we do something, the more likely we are to do it like we’ve always done it.

Leading doesn’t make you a better leader. Just like playing golf doesn’t make you a better golfer.

The only way to improve performance – in any field – is purposeful practice. (Researchers and authors often use the expression ‘deliberate practice’.)

Why You Need This One Trait to Build a Successful Company Culture

Why You Need This One Trait to Build a Successful Company Culture | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

How would you describe a superpower in the workplace? Words such as “inspirational,” “influential” and “powerful” would come to mind, but you would rarely think of “empathetic.”

 

Empathy is a skill which is often overlooked in the workplace. Determined by Frans de Waal as the “social glue that holds human society together,” empathy refers to the awareness of one’s own and other people’s feelings, needs and concerns. Having the ability to be empathetic has been proven to prevent poor morale, misunderstandings and conflicts, consequently enabling a person to build significant and long-lasting relationships with others. Empathy therefore is the underrated key ingredient for both personal and professional success.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, August 17, 11:45 PM
Empathy is perhaps the single most important trait that goes into a successful company! The expression of empathy, eagerness to know more about how your employees feel, the ability to find time for employees are all things that make your company a great place to work in. Unfortunately, the culture of empathy is the most overlooked one because of the need to compete and produce results. We have become mechanical in our dealings with subordinates and even colleagues! 
 
JASON CAVNESS's curator insight, August 18, 2:29 PM
Empathy is a very important skill to build your company culture around.
