Great question.  That said, I would offer only those who serve their people and set them up for success are truly leaders.

 

That is, being self-serving is mutually exclusive to being a leader ... there's no such thing as a "self-serving leader" -- they are just "self-serving."

Annie M Herbert's curator insight, December 16, 2013 6:45 PM

Sounds like a great place to start students understanding what their emotional intelligence is.  Need to convince students that emotional intelligence makes a difference.

What a quote:

"Your ability to concentrate on the work you're doing or your schoolwork, and to put off looking at that text or playing that video game until after you're done ... how good you are at that in childhood turns out to be a stronger predictor of your financial success in adulthood than either your IQ or the wealth of the family you grew up in,"

Another great quote:

When an emotionally intelligent person experiences a failure or setback, he or she is able to bounce back quickly. This is in part because of the ability to mindfully experience negative emotions without letting them get out of control, which provides a higher degree of resilience.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 17, 2013 8:42 AM

3 Leadership Must Do’s for 2014

3 Leadership Must Do’s for 2014 | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

According to a survey published this month by Right Management, 83% of employees said they are actively seeking a new position for 2014. Gallup’s State of the American Workplace study earlier this year found that 70% of workers are not engaged or actively disengaged and emotionally disconnected from their workplaces, and thus less likely to be productive. Gallup’s research also finds that engagement is strongly connected to business outcomes essential to an organization’s financial success.

Here are three workplace trends that are likely to keep employees engaged and retained in 2014:

Karl Wabst's curator insight, December 11, 2013 3:27 PM

Corporate leaders are also employees. If they are disengaged, their people are likely to be as well. Leaders and Managers are not immune to the disillusionment of the past decade. Some percentage of the 83% of employees actively seeking a new position are leaders. When the market finally opens up, expect movement at all levels.

Toxic Leadership: Recognising the signs. | TomorrowToday | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Toxic leadership always ends badly but it doesn’t start that way. Toxic leadership (as is the case with any from of leadership) requires followership and to assume that at the outset the followership knew what they were in for is incorrect. Toxic leadership goes bad in stages and the followership are sucked in over time to the point that they are unable to see the toxicity emerging – or if they do, they often feel powerless to oppose it. They might feel entrapped and that they have too much to lose by speaking up and so end up by doing nothing.
