Some interesting points in there. The one that stood out was the one about success. Sometimes we confuse success with popularity. The result is we confuse leadership with something it may not be.

"Success makes you unpopular".  This is a truth that is not spoken about, but you know what?  As you go along you will find others who will like you so do not take this as a negative.

The notion of worker versus manager is outdated, and a collaboration between these two is needed to move forward with a new agenda

Graeme Reid's curator insight, January 20, 3:51 PM

Put another way - empowering your people is the key.  There are many outdated management practices which need to be addressed.  For instance why is it still seen as a good thing to be spending so long at your desk - all the research shows diminishing returns poor decisionmaking etc when people are at work for long periods?

Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's curator insight, January 17, 11:17 AM

Thank you Roy for sharing this case study!!!

 

We are being judged by a whole different scorecard as leaders. 

 

As you have heard me say before:  Emotional Intelligence is not about being warm and fuzzy and nice all of the time...it is about being intelligent with one's emotions.  It involves being aware of who you are as a leader and understanding how you are hard-wired so that you can manage your responses, build relationships, and achieve greater individual and collaborative responses.

 

It has little to do with one's title or about being the boss -- it has everything to do about connecting, communicating, and influencing.  People follow you not because they have to; however, because they want to.

 

When leaders invest their time and energy on Emotional Intelligence they will see observable improvements on relationships, effectiveness, decision-making, and communication.

What Every Leader Must Know About Personal Development

What Every Leader Must Know About Personal Development | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

As the writer point out personal development is not something to do to be better at your job, bur rather striving to be your best in all areas of your life will make you reach your potential including being better at you job.

John Michel's curator insight, January 16, 4:23 AM

This entire world view tragically puts the proverbial cart before the horse. Whether you call it personal development, personal growth, self-actualization, self-transcendence, or spirituality does not matter. What matters is realizing that the reason you were born is to become the best human being you can possibly be. Personal development is not a tool for reaching a bigger goal. Becoming a complete human being is already the biggest and most noble goal you can aspire to.

Interesting research for Leaders/Managers to think about when exploring Recognition and Reward based incentives. 'Recognising' and valuing an individuals contribution and generosity and being generous without the expectation of reciprocity, builds a deep sense of community. Leaders who focus exclusively on extrinsic 'Reward' systems in teams elicit some of the behaviours and outcomes discussed in the article.
