Courage is indispensable for everyday leadership and making the difficult decisions to lead people to excellence.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, August 26, 11:06 AM

Personal courage is the catalyst to overcoming fears and becoming the leader and person, you are meant to be.

Don Cloud's curator insight, August 26, 1:18 PM

It is not enough for a leader to have courage ... rather, the most powerful leaders must both exude courage in the face of danger and more importantly must draw out and energize the courage of their people to face and defeat that danger.

The Business of Behavioral Economics

The Business of Behavioral Economics | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

You've done everything—endured diets, purged your freezer of Ben & Jerry's, and educated yourself on fat, sugar, and calories. Yet, you can't manage to lose weight.

 

What's wrong with you? According to standard economic theory, which gives humans (perhaps too much) credit for making rational choices, those efforts should be enough to change your behavior. If you know the consequences but still get fat, you must want to be overweight.

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership and management are two distinctly different but complimentary skill sets that all companies need. Leaders make sure the organization is doing the right things, while managers make sure they do those things right. Leadership is about coping with change while management is about coping with complex issues. Both are qualities that can be learned and both require constant focus on improvement. Especially when the organization is facing potential adaptive challenges.

These five steps may seem very simple but they are often taken for granted. To give direction a leader must take ownership and have a vision. Managing conflict and providing protection are often not pleasant and require great maturity from leaders. Shaping the norms and clarifying roles is often not given a very high priority as it involves intangible people skills.

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...:-)))

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

The science behind a happy and productive workforce

The science behind a happy and productive workforce | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Humans have been fascinated by their own behaviour for thousands of years. Understanding each other has been critical for survival – both as Neanderthals and in today’s corporate world. A successful employee will not only possess the right skills, but their working style often matches their role requirements. However, an individual’s working behaviour type isn’t always apparent on the CV, so how can you gain an additional understanding of whether they’re the right fit for your company

donhornsby's curator insight, August 19, 1:25 PM

(From the article): Knowing what motivates your staff helps to maintain a productive and happy workforce, making them more likely to stay on board. High dominance individuals tend to be motivated by power and authority and drive results, whilst those with high influence are more likely to be motivated by public praise and recognition. Those with high influence are usually more suited to careers that involve working with others in a talkative environment.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, August 21, 6:00 AM

When people treat others with kindness and respect, the happiness of each individual increases and so too, does their productivity.

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers?

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs

 

Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.

 

Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.
