I like e.g. the factors of the limiting the caffeine intake, of breathing (!!!, very important, indeed...), of sleeping... yeahhh.. "ground rules"... Good.... as I am always saying, to find the balance, the sweet spot... I would add that it's different person per person... It's not at all the "golden middle"... Some will work better with a little bit bigger dose of stress, with rather less but everybody will be somewhere in the "arena" that's for sure...:-)))

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 17, 2:19 PM
Despite what we see with some so-called leaders (with naricissistic tendencies) in politics, schools, and corporations, leaders assume responsibility and understand they cannot control everything. Good teaching is premised on this as well.

Although managing is essential in certain situations, it is too often conflated with leading.

Why Seniority Is the Worst Reason to Promote an Employee

Why Seniority Is the Worst Reason to Promote an Employee | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
How do you decide which employee deserves a promotion? If you make promotion decisions using seniority as the sole criterion, you're making a major mistake. (If you run a union shop, maybe you have to -- but otherwise promoting based solely on seniority is not just an imperfect solution -- it's a terrible solution.

Plus it's also a cop-out: Everyone I've ever talked to who promoted based on seniority eventually admitted they did so not because it was the most objective way to make the decision, but because it allowed them to avoid having that difficult conversation when they had to tell people why they weren't selected for the job.

If that's the main reason you promote based on seniority, shame on you. Your employees -- especially your best employees -- deserve better.

Employee disengagement is a bottom line and safety issue! And it isn't a factor of  matter how smart managers are, but how they are smart. IQ is a ticket to management and leadership positions but being EQ smart is the factor that most affects employee engagement, motivation, commitment and loyalty.

The Secret to Being Approachable Is Almost Too Obvious (You’ve Probably Already Done it Today)

The Secret to Being Approachable Is Almost Too Obvious (You’ve Probably Already Done it Today) | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

You know those people with a seemingly magnetic force that attracts all types of people? Whether they’re engaging you in a light and friendly chat or a meaningful conversation, they just seem to have a presence you wish you had. It’s easy to sum it all up and say that some people just have it, and others just don’t, but that’s an unproductive way of thinking about it. There’s absolutely no reason why you can’t also be the type of person who charms the pants off of everybody.

 

If you consider yourself to be socially awkward, or just chronically shy , you may feel like it takes a lot of effort to have engaging interactions with others. For me, I know if the person I’m talking to seems uncomfortable, I start to think that I’ve offended or bored him. Is he thinking about his to-do list right now? Am I that lame? Without some type of visible reassurance telling me the person I’m speaking with is enjoying the conversation, I struggle to be present and am bound to forget about the individual.

How To Be More Assertive At Work When That’s Just Not Your Personality

How To Be More Assertive At Work When That’s Just Not Your Personality | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Find it hard to advocate for yourself? You’re not alone. The personality trait that psychologists call “agreeableness” describes how motivated you are to get along with other people. If you’re highly agreeable, that motivation can sometimes prevent you from sticking up for your own interests. Anytime you ask for something at work, you run the risk that you’ll be told “no”–and possibly aggravate the person you’re asking. As a result, agreeable people may be put off from asking in the first place.

 

This can be a problem, because research suggests that agreeable people tend to make less money than disagreeable people (even accounting for the fact that disagreeable people lose their jobs more often). And in leadership roles, agreeable people may not be as good at getting their teams all the resources they need. So what can you do to be more assertive even when it just isn’t in your personality to do so? Here are a few tips.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 20, 4:06 PM
The short answer is it depends on how we define leading. Understood as emergent, distributed, and collective the answer is yes. More traditional understandings based on hierarchy and position means not as likely.

One that is missing is servant-leadership, which each person is capable of serving and leading. By its nature, teaching is leading even if we do not acknowledge teachers as leaders. Teachers are pedagogues and educate, both of which are etymologically tied to leading.

A 6-Year Study Reveals the Surprising Key to Team Performance (and 9 Ways to Enable It) | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Psychologist John Gottman can predict whether or not a married couple will be together five years later with startling 90 percent accuracy. How does he do it?

 

He watches them argue.

 

The ability to engage in healthy, productive debate is not only essential for ensuring a long marriage--it's also the key determinant of high performing teams.

 

A recently released six-year study cites the ability to manage conflicting tensions as the most critical predictor of top-team performance. Berkeley research shows teams that debate their ideas have 25 percent more ideas altogether and that companies like Pixar embrace healthy debate as a vital part of their performance (in its case to make better films).

To Be a Great Leader, You Have to Learn How to Delegate Well

To Be a Great Leader, You Have to Learn How to Delegate Well | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

One of the most difficult transitions for leaders to make is the shift from doing to leading. As a new manager you can get away with holding on to work. Peers and bosses may even admire your willingness to keep “rolling up your sleeves” to execute tactical assignments. But as your responsibilities become more complex, the difference between an effective leader and a super-sized individual contributor with a leader’s title is painfully evident.

 

In the short term you may have the stamina to get up earlier, stay later, and out-work the demands you face. But the inverse equation of shrinking resources and increasing demands will eventually catch up to you, and at that point how you involve others sets the ceiling of your leadership impact. The upper limit of what’s possible will increase only with each collaborator you empower to contribute their best work to your shared priorities. Likewise, your power decreases with every initiative you unnecessarily hold on to.
