Leadership and Emotions

Leadership and Emotions | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Like it or not, emotions are a big part of leadership. Here's how to deal with them--without becoming your team's therapist.

 

If leadership is mainly engaged in human relations, then leadership, at its core, is largely about emotions.  Leaders would do well to reflect on the emotionality of leadership, especially during challenging situations and periods of self-doubt. 

 

Here are three factors to consider...

6 Leadership Styles, And When You Should Use Them

6 Leadership Styles, And When You Should Use Them | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Great leaders choose their leadership style like a golfer chooses his or her club, with a calculated analysis of the matter at hand, the end goal, and the best tool for the job.

 

Taking a team from ordinary to extraordinary means understanding and embracing the difference between management and leadership. According to writer and consultant Peter Drucker, "Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things." 

 

Manager and leader are two completely different roles, although we often use the terms interchangeably. Managers are facilitators of their team members’ success. They ensure that their people have everything they need to be productive and successful; that they’re well trained, happy and have minimal roadblocks in their path; that they’re being groomed for the next level; that they are recognized for great performance and coached through their challenges.

 

Conversely, a leader can be anyone on the team who has a particular talent, who is creatively thinking out of the box and has a great idea, who has experience in a certain aspect of the business or project that can prove useful to the manager and the team. A leader leads based on strengths not titles.

 

The best managers consistently allow different leaders to emerge and inspire their teammates (and themselves!) to the next level.

10 Simple Truths Smart People Forget

10 Simple Truths Smart People Forget | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Some of the smartest people I know continuously struggle to get ahead because they forget to address a few simple truths that collectively govern our potential to make progress. So here’s a quick reminder:

 

#1 – Education and intelligence accomplish nothing without action.
It doesn’t matter if you have a genius IQ and a PhD in Quantum Physics, you can’t change anything or make any sort of real-world progress without taking action. There’s a huge difference between knowing how to do something and actually doing it. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action. It’s as simple as that. For some practical guidance on taking action, I highly recommend The Now Habit.

 

#2 – Happiness and success are two different things.
I know an extremely savvy businesswoman who made almost a million dollars online last year. Every entrepreneur I know considers her to be wildly successful. But guess what? A few days ago, out of the blue, she told me that she’s depressed...

How to Pop the Cork on Tough Conversations

How to Pop the Cork on Tough Conversations | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
If excellence was easy there’d be more of it.

 

The path to excellence is paved with tough conversations; not mean, tough. Excellence challenges average. All great leaders achieve excellence by facing tough issues quickly and head on.

 

“Tough issues aren’t like wine.” Michael Hyatt.

 

I asked Michael Hyatt, Chairman of Thomas Nelson publishing and author of “Platform,” about life’s tipping points and he told me about a coach he had years ago. Michael said,

 

“I had a problem. I was tip toeing around tough issues.”

 

Michael’s coach asked, “Why do you see people as small?”

 

“What do you mean?”

 

Hyatt’s coach continued, “You see people as fragile and unable to handle what you have to say. Shift your paradigm about how you think about people.”

HR Magazine - Engagement surveys can mask the true nature of staff motivation, according to the CIPD and Kingston Business School

HR Magazine - Engagement surveys can mask the true nature of staff motivation, according to the CIPD and Kingston Business School | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

The report uncovered an important distinction between transactional and emotional engagement and found employees that are transactionally engaged (i.e. engaged only with the task or job role at hand) may respond positively to engagement surveys and display the outward behaviours associated with engagement, but are less likely to perform well and will quickly leave for a better offer.


But those that are emotionally engaged (i.e. engaged with the organisation's mission and values), are more likely to perform, have higher levels of wellbeing and are more likely to remain engaged through good times and bad.
