Developing Leaders Who Know, Do and Believe

Developing Leaders Who Know, Do and Believe | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Today’s, and especially tomorrow’s, leaders must be flexible, collaborative, able to leverage key knowledge and skills appropriately, and also willing to continue their learning. They must be able to handle chaos, act in ambiguity and navigate turbulence in a way that brings competitive advantage in the marketplace. They need to know what is important, do the right thing every time, and believe and think in a way that increases their odds of success. And of course, our organizations must be able to support these leaders in developing these abilities.

 

One of the central questions in this pursuit is how to move developing leaders from “here” to “there” in terms of their mindset, skills and knowledge, and behavior. This question is at the heart of leadership development and is one that every company should consider carefully as it builds its future and seeks the leadership outcomes that are required in the marketplace.

 

The connection between thought and behavior is critical. Though it seems logical that behavior follows thought, the direction of this connection often works in the other direction. In fact, I believe that leaders often must change their behavior first in order to later change their thinking. In other words, we can’t ask leaders to think their way to acting differently – we have to ask them to act first and then they will start thinking differently. In this way, leadership development is more about helping a leader see herself acting differently so that a change in her beliefs will follow.

 

The Know, Do, Believe model focuses on the connection between a leader’s knowledge and skills, their behavior, and the mindsets they employ to shape and make sense of the world.

The 11 Leadership Secrets You Never Heard About

The 11 Leadership Secrets You Never Heard About | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
The old distinctions between leaders and followers are gone. Great followers follow by leading. Here’s 11 ways to make sure you do just that.

 

For leadership, Einstein’s revolution means that the old, neat distinction between leaders and followers no longer exists. Those bright lines between kings and subjects, nobles and serfs, bosses and “workers” are gone. We often switch between leader and follower many times in a single day, and success depends just as much on being a great follower as it does on being a great leader.

 

Great followers follow by leading and here are 11 ways to do just that.

Habilidades necesarias para lograr una presentación exitosa con tu audiencia

Jean Luc lebrun's curator insight, June 9, 2014 4:46 PM

Behind these video doodles is an fun company: www.truscribe.com

What is interesting here is that the video is in perfect sync with the audio - this is why it is so powerful..

More critically, something is missing from the video: a summary. The author summarizes with "So there you have it, five things you need to know about people in order to give a better presentation", followed by a rapid zoom out revealing briefly ALL the pictures from the storyboard - too many and too fast to be of use as a memory prop.

Five may be a small number, but for our limited memory - it is huge. We have to remember five more or less disconnected ideas: 20 minute chunks, eye competes with ear, your speech is only a part of whole message (see nice screen illustration at time 3:36), call them to action, people imitate your feelings. It feels like a bullet list. The video could have brought back 5 key images corresponding to the 5 points to help anchor them in our memory.

This is why I recommend that the "take-away" slide, a.k.a. the conclusion or summary slide, refreshes people's memory by bringing back small pictures of the key visuals of the presentation next to the text points that they helped make. It does not matter if they are not fully readable, their role is simply to jog memory.

Every day is a battle for productivity when you’re a small business owner or consultant. And, if we’re being honest, productivity can be especially hard to hold on to during these warm summer months when BBQs and beach daydreams wreak havoc on our day.

 

If you’ve ever sat back and wondered what happened between 9-5, a new survey from the creators of OfficeTime may interest you. Here, the time tracking site polled respondents to answer the question “where does our time go” and identified some of the biggest culprits to workplace productivity.

Stephen Covey passed away yesterday and although he has moved on from this world, his words have inspired many in his lifetime and remain a beacon of light for those searching for truth and inspiration in personal and professional life.

4 Ways Leaders Can Overcome the Fear of Conflict

The thoughtLEADERS Blog covers leadership, communications, strategy and operations. All posts are practical and applicable to help you apply the methods we teach.

 

It’s nauseating to hear – someone soft-shoe dancing around an issue because they’re afraid of hurting someone’s feelings. They do so because they might receive negative feedback in a 360 review that they were abrupt or too direct in delivering feedback on that issue. So rather than going the direct route, they water down their message until it’s a mealy mouthed blathering stream of meaningless crap (yes, I’m fired up as I’m writing this).

 

Let me ask you this – do you want to follow a “leader” who doesn’t speak his or her mind? Someone who is more concerned with how their actions will be perceived rather than saying what they really think? Do you want to follow a leader who is more interested in doing nothing wrong (and hence not doing much of anything) or would you rather follow someone who takes a stand for what they believe in and suffers the consequences as appropriate?
