Your body language matters. Especially when you are in business situations. Do you know that crossing your arms tell people, unconsciously, that you are shutting the door on them and not letting them in? Check out this article for more body language that will make a difference for you.

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, September 22, 2:24 AM

An “insightfully aware” leader has a profound and clear understanding of his or her purpose and the reasons behind it. Self-awareness of values helps leaders to reflect upon their emotions, goals, needs and motives. Individuals who are able to identify and articulate their values will generate meaningful insights about how they see themselves, the circumstances they face, the behaviours they display, and their potential reactions to specific situations. Comprehending their values (personal, work and organisational) enables leaders to know and accomplish what they believe is important.

6 Ways Being Mindful Can Make You a Better Leader, by Bruna Martinuzzi

6 Ways Being Mindful Can Make You a Better Leader, by Bruna Martinuzzi | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
As Jon Kabat-Zinn puts it, mindfulness "wakes us up to the fact that our lives unfold only in moments." If we're not fully present for those moments, we may miss what's most valuable in our lives, both personally and professionally. Simply put, mindfulness is about not living in your head all the time and is about paying attention to where you are, what you're doing, or who you're talking to so that you are in touch with the right here, right now. Research shows that mindfulness reduces stress and increases concentration and clarity. Read on for five simple ways to practice mindfulness to improve your personal and professional life.

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...

The #1 Rule of Leadership - "It's not about you"

The #1 Rule of Leadership - "It's not about you" | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Perform a search of “leadership” on Google and you will find dozens of listed leadership “rules” and “qualities” (most of which are very accurate).

 

But there is one primary axiom of leadership that trumps all others:


Via donhornsby, Amy Melendez
more...
donhornsby's curator insight, August 27, 2:25 PM

(From the article) The most effective leaders follow Leadership Rule #1, and return to it during those leadership challenges that require the very best of their leadership abilities. They understand that you cannot change expectations, alter perceptions, and motivate others unless you maintain the ability to influence them in a positive manner. When followers sense that your leadership decisions are made with other priorities, they will not trust you. Without trust, you will lose the ability maintain the positive influence necessary to motivate and inspire others, and you will have limited the value of your leadership investment.

 

Whether you are a brand new leader, or someone with years of experience, the next time you find yourself faced with a leadership decision, pause and remind yourself of this:

Is Integrity the Secret to Great Leadership?

Is Integrity the Secret to Great Leadership? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

The actions of a business are its value statement. Actions speak volumes about what really matters most – not what should matter, not what we wish mattered, but what really does matter to us. They swamp mission statements, speeches or memos, and they eclipse intentions.

 

Having the kind of integrity that leaves no room between what we say and what we do is really hard work. It’s much easier to follow the words of JR Ewing of the TV series Dallas, who said: “Once you lose your integrity, everything’s easy.” Lots of people have chosen this path. Others find it to be too much work to align their decisions and actions with what they claim as priorities.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, September 26, 9:41 AM

From the article: If you force yourself to look at where you actually spend your time and what you do with your resources, you may notice an internal conflict arising. It will not revolve around what I think of as “level 1 integrity” – things like never lying, cheating or stealing. Instead, it will likely challenge your “level 2 integrity” – the kind that has to do with not being divided or misaligned.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 26, 10:13 AM

Integrity is important. It has multiple meanings beginning with honesty and authenticity. It also has to do with being part of the greater whole. Too often, I found School managers were just that managers and operated as observers. It allowed them to hang on to the idea of cause and effect without thinking of the bigger picture as complex with considerable uncertainty.

Why Good Professional Development Is Like Learning How To Fly

Why Good Professional Development Is Like Learning How To Fly | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Imagine if we taught pilots to fly without ever letting them in a cockpit. Or gave them the keys to a commercial airplane without the required hours—or years—of hands on training and practice. Sure, we’d show them plenty of PowerPoint presentations and make them sit through a few seminars on the theory and physics of flight, but then we’d slap on a graduation cap and let them take off into the big blue sky. Not only would it likely be ineffective, it would be borderline criminal. Yet when it comes to professional development for classroom teachers, that’s almost exactly what we do.

In this article, learning and training are somehow interchangeable. Learning is a human process which involves imagining what the meaning is in what is being learned. Training is a checklist process used in industrial settings where we go through the prescribed steps. The two are not the same thing, Having said this, good learning should help us fly and take off in new and adventurous ways. @ivon_ehd1
Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 10, 1:25 PM

PD is vital for teacher growth and sustainability yet it is often undervalued and often is not focused on what individual teachers need but, instead, on generic ideas and concepts or on "feel good" presentations about topics that are nebulous and non-specific like using technology or implementing reading programs. A shift is needed to move PD towards a growth mindset that focuses on how individual teachers can improve their teaching by beginning where they are as a teacher and sharing their ideas and growth with other teachers. It's not about presentations, even by "real teachers in real classrooms" but about change for individual teachers through support and collaboration of other teachers who also have a growth mindset.
