The Paradox of Trust, Vulnerability and Leadership

The Paradox of Trust, Vulnerability and Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Humans tend to model the behavior they see. When leaders appear to be in control, know everything, never doubt, or never ask for help or input, employees think they have to do the same.  The behavior they see and deem as acceptable is to be strong, not question, never be wrong, and always know.  The opposite behavior is a sign of weakness and is unacceptable

Leadership is a fine line between the confidence and competence to earn and keep trust.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 11, 2014 11:16 PM

Articles such as this one should be part of the conversation about School leadership which tends away from trust, paradox, and leadership and tends towards managing.

David Jardin's curator insight, August 15, 2014 8:13 PM

Great definition: Leadership is a fine line between the confidence and competence to earn and keep trust and the hubris and perfection that loses trust.

Some Amazing TED Talks on How to Be A Leader

Some Amazing TED Talks on How to Be A Leader | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership comes with hard work but successful leadership entails more than just laboriousness, it calls for special traits that only a select few possess. Whether these traits are skills that can be developed or are a matter of biological endowment is something which still needs scientific back-up. Generally speaking, successful leaders do have something in common. They share a set of common characteristics such as : confidence, focus, trust, far-sightedness, accountability, enthusiasm, persistence, communication, determination, love of their work, and patience. Also, successful leaders are a joy to be around. They listen empathically and are a source of inspiration and zeal to the people around them.

Some of our current world leaders could learn a few things from a man like Churchill.
