Leaders: Expand your strengths-based leadership zone | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
I love the strengths-based leadership approach. It challenges us to know what our natural gifts are and build on them. But if we’re not careful it can make us blind to our opportunities to improve.

How Do You Rank the World’s Best CEOs?

How Do You Rank the World’s Best CEOs? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

How do you measure a CEO’s impact? An HBR team recently addressed that question by ranking CEOs according to the increases their companies have seen in total shareholder return and market capitalization across their whole tenures.

SO how do you measure up?

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, February 10, 5:13 AM

Wise decision by HBR to re-rank and recalculate their 'best-performing CEOs list'. This time the researchers did not only look at financial results, but also created a "non-financial performance index” (eg. workplace, citizenship, and governance). With interesting results...

 

Bonus quote:

"A great CEO’s legacy is never as one-dimensional as the ledger."

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, February 10, 12:49 PM

Companies now need to understand what value they are creating, not only for their investors, but also for their employees, customers, and society at large – and they need to know how their reputations reflect this net value creation.

Checklist for Emotional Intelligence

Kudos's curator insight, April 10, 10:26 AM

The best leaders are always ones that can relate to their team, keep a calm demeanour in crisis or conflict and work to support their team to help make them better verses dictating or blaming for what is wrong. The best Managers look for what their team does right and recognizes those behaviours and results. Managing people well is much harder then it looks, recognizing people for what they do well and how they contribute is a great place to start to be a good emotional intelligent leader.

Two Ways to Clarify Your Professional Passions

Two Ways to Clarify Your Professional Passions | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever noticed that highly effective people almost always say they love what they do? If you ask them about their good career fortune, they’re likely to advise that you have to love what you do in order to perform at a high level of effectiveness. They will talk about the critical importance of having a long-term perspective and real passion in pursuing a career. Numerous studies of highly effective people point to a strong correlation between believing in the mission, enjoying the job, and performing at a high level.

 

So why is it that people are often skeptical of the notion that passion and career should be integrally linked? Why do people often struggle to discern their passions and then connect those passions to a viable career path?
