Life skills are soo important.  What are you teaching your kids? 

donhornsby's curator insight, Today, 9:44 AM

(From the article): How to ask for help.


Our fear of rejection and unwillingness to impose upon others (and also perhaps our desire for independence) often keep us from requesting the help we need to achieve what we most want. Jack Canfield suggests we become "world class askers" in pursuit of our greatest dreams because nothing great is ever created in isolation. Learning to ask for support is undoubtedly a key success skill.

“The strongest of all warriors are these two — Time and Patience" ~ Tolstoy, HT @faisal_hoque

donhornsby's curator insight, Today, 9:54 AM

(From the article): Being a patient listener allows us to absorb the full message, both spoken and unspoken. Being patiently mindful of the speaker’s every gesture, facial expression, and change in tone allows for a fuller understanding of the underlying issues.

TIME ALLOWS FOR SMARTER DECISIONS.

The best ideas seldom come to mind immediately. The longer we take to ponder a problem, the easier our brains may find it to fit everything into place. It is often in the quiet moments when inspiration strikes, and it hardly ever happens when we are desperate to make a decision. An attitude of patience helps us to smooth over those inevitable bumps in the road, and we usually reach the best path in our own time.

 

Any decision can be made quickly, but the consequences of those choices live for much longer. We live in a world where split-second decisions and decisive actions are constantly encouraged at our workplaces. How much smoother would things be if we all took the time to make the right decision the first time? It is all too easy to be hijacked by pressures and emotions and rushed into a hasty mistake.

The organizational skills that helped executives in the past deal with concrete, well-defined operations are much less effective in today's highly complex, fast-changing world, CIO Journal Irving Wladawsky-Berger writes. Leaders need to better anticipate and plan for disruptions and be able to "connect the dots to reveal new business opportunities at the confluence of multiple emergent trends."

It’s not about performing, in either sense of the word.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 4, 11:50 AM

(From the article): When leaders empower people through a higher purpose, they don’t have to “create buy-in” or use other marketing tactics to win over their followers. Leaders who do find themselves acting something like a pusher — resorting to perks, tit-for-tats, and bonuses — might want to ask themselves if they’re missing some larger point. A leader isn’t a salesman. When Steve Jobs asked John Sculley his famous question, “Do you really want to spend your life selling sugared water, or do you want a chance to change the world?” he was making just such a distinction. Selling sugared water might make you a few bucks — but only at the cost of doing something that matters. The purpose of a leader is to create a purpose.


And yet although that sounds very inspiring, a leader’s job still is not to give inspiring speeches. A leader isn’t an orator who claps everyone on the back once in a while when they’ve sunk into a torpor. The job of a leader is indeed to inspire people — but in the truer sense of the word: from the Latin inspirare, inspire, to breathe or blow into. Leaders breathe life into the organizations they lead, into the people they’re responsible for. They breathe life into possibilities. They make it more possible for the rest of us to dare, imagine, create, and build. They do not merely encourage us to do so; theirs is the hard work of crafting all the incentives, processes, systems, and roles that actually empower us to do so.

 

Leadership is in an uncertain place. We long desperately for better leaders. But perhaps it is precisely our longing that’s the problem. We’re waiting for a rescue at the cost of our own redemption.

Because it’s easier to complain about the leaders we have than to try to do better. After all, it’s a pretty hard job.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 4, 12:22 PM

Leadership and management, although both vital, are not the same, but are often conflated. A person who can micro-manage and check off lists like many educational managers can think they are leading. They are managing and not doing that well. Living does not involve a fixed script and leading in the midst of complexity requires qualities many do not have or are not allowed to use.

Only 15% reach self-actualization. I wonder how many never get beyond security? More importantly, what constrains those people? As well, we should not mistake people who are busy selling themselves and their limited ideas with anything but the security level.

How the Best Managers are Really Coaches

How the Best Managers are Really Coaches | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Looking back on our childhood, most people remember at least one mentor or coach who said or did something that really made an impact on their lives. Whether it was a tweak to our baseball swing, an encouraging word when the odds weren’t looking good, or just making the team feel like a real family, great coaches and mentors somehow managed to bring out the best in everyone. Some of the best coaches are doing more than winning games; they are building a strong community.  

It isn’t surprising then that many of the most successful managers also incorporate a number of coaching techniques into their communication strategies. Often the best people to work for are those who build workplace collaboration, bring everyone together, and most importantly, really care about their employees. In fact, the main factor that separates great managers from average ones is their ability to coach.

Herzberg's Motivators and Hygiene Factors: Learn how to Motivate Your Team

Herzberg's Motivators and Hygiene Factors: Learn how to Motivate Your Team | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
What do people want from their jobs? Do they just want a higher salary? Or do they want security, good relationships with co-workers, opportunities for growth and advancement – or something else altogether?

This is an important question, because it's at the root of motivation - the art of engaging with members of your team in such a way that they give their very best performance.

The psychologist Fredrick Herzberg asked the same question in the 1950s and 60s as a means of understanding employee satisfaction. He set out to determine the effect of attitude on motivation, by asking people to describe situations where they felt really good, and really bad, about their jobs. What he found was that people who felt good about their jobs gave very different responses from the people who felt bad.

These results form the basis of Herzberg's Motivation-Hygiene Theory (sometimes known as Herzberg's Two Factor Theory). Published in his famous article, "One More Time: How do You Motivate Employees," the conclusions he drew were extraordinarily influential, and still form the bedrock of good motivational practice nearly half a century later.

Motivational leadership - The Baseline Of Accountability

Motivational leadership - The Baseline Of Accountability | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Whether you are the CEO of the company, or someone elsewhere on the totem pole, your role matters. There are various functions that each member of the team, as well as your customers, should be able to count on you to provide. Everyone is expected to deliver on their responsibilities and come through on promises and commitments made.
This is what we call the baseline of accountability. Knowing the baseline, means individuals truly know what they are responsible for, why it matters, who is affected, and when their output is needed. They know, and respect, the importance of their contribution. It is something that no one, in any business, is immune to.
It is a mistake to think of accountability as an aspect of doing what you are told rather it is about giving an honest account; whats been done, whats still to do, whats been learned, what value has been created.
