The Five Hallmarks of Highly Respected Achievers

The Five Hallmarks of Highly Respected Achievers | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
I’ve been working on a research project for a few weeks that involves identifying the characteristics that describe highly driven, achievement-oriented people who are also among the most well-respected in any organization.

 

I’ve been working on a research project for a few weeks that involves identifying the characteristics that describe highly driven, achievement-oriented people who are also among the most well-respected in any organization.

 

The intersection between drive and respect is an important one, because we all know people who are highly driven but think nothing of running others over along the way. And, we know examples of people who are respected but stagnant.

 

What follows is a taste of things to come, but here are a few initial thoughts on what makes respected achievers different.

A New Look at Leadership and Emotional Intelligence | Psychology Today

A New Look at Leadership and Emotional Intelligence | Psychology Today | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Despite the considerable research from psychology and neuroscience, leaders who are clearly deficient in emotional intelligence continue to be recruited, chosen and promoted in organizations.

Tracy Saville's comment, July 2, 2012 1:27 PM
The core of my work in the world revolves around emotional intelligence - waking people up to their own mastery or lack thereof. In West Point Global Leadership conferences, in top brass leadership programs across all military branches of the world, and in Harvard curriculum board meetings, or the UN training grounds for top foreign affairs negotiators you'll find a visible, 50% or better concentration on the internal workings of a human being in leadership development.

The world's challenges and our human progress and evolution is dependent upon our ability to finally accept that EQ mastered is critical to everything at every level when it comes to human experience. Hitler lacked it entirely, and it could be said that deeply rhetoric-inspired dogma junkies such as the Tea Party or fundamentalist Christians who believe others will go to Hell for not believing in their version of the bible are deficient in the EQ department.

In Aaron Sorkin's words in his new series The Newsroom, thanks Psychology Today for throwing truth at stupid. It isn't a question of difficult as much as it is a question of dangerous. It is downright self-defeating and dangerous to continue to allow emotionally unintelligent people lead anything.

It ought to be a pre-requisite for having a baby, driving a car, getting married, starting a company, leading anything, including the Boy Scouts, and for the love of Gaia or whatever God or gods you worship, please oh please make it rule that every person who runs for elected office in the world ought to have to pass an EQ test. Daniel Goleman….you’re our man.

I don't normall espouse this aggressively, but it's time to get on with it.

The Secret to Powerful Communication in Two Words - Forbes

The Secret to Powerful Communication in Two Words - Forbes | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
If I had to sum up in two words everything I’ve learned in 25 years of work on communications, rhetoric, public speaking, speechwriting, and body language, those two words would be: charismatic storytelling.

Charismatic because in an over-stimulated, impatient world, it’s passion and charisma that get attention. But passion alone doesn’t get you to charisma; that magic ingredient takes a little additional work.

Storytelling, because we’ve already got way too much information to take in, so the only thing we remember these days is stories. And oh yes, that’s the way it has always been.

Crisis: Emotional Threat or Challenge

Crisis: Emotional Threat or Challenge | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Emotions lie at the heart of how you respond to crises. They are the starting point for all of the reactions that we have toward a crisis. They are also the first obstacle to establishing a positive response to a crisis. That is why it is essential to understand the role that emotions play in how we react, with the goal being to gain control of and use our emotions in constructive ways when confronted by crises.

 

Whether you view crises as a threat or a challenge sets into motion a diametrically opposed cascade of emotions, thoughts, and behavior that result in either a constructive or harmful response to crises.

Want better teamwork and greater success? Make sure your employees are following these easy guidelines.

 

Everybody agrees that "teamwork" is crucial to business success--but few people bother define what "teamwork" really is.

 

A few years ago, Phil Geldart (author of the classic In Your Hands, the Behaviors of a World Class Leader) explained to me a set of principles that allow teams to overcome even the most thorny business challenges.

 

Based on that conversation, here are the seven characteristics of truly extraordinary teams:

Why Appreciation Matters So Much | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
In one well-known study, workers who felt unfairly criticized by a boss or felt they had a boss who didn't listen to their concerns had a 30 percent higher rate of coronary disease than those who felt treated fairly and with care.

Excessive Deference to Leaders Corrupts Them

Who wouldn't lose their humility if constantly surrounded by sycophants eager to invest them with unchecked power?

 

David Brooks kept an audience of hundreds rapt Thursday for a compelling 45 minute lecture on two competing codes of human conduct: the code of honor and valor that we associate with the Greeks, and the code of humility and love that we associate with Jesus Christ. In his estimation, we're at our best when we succeed in blending these codes, but we've largely abandoned both.

 

He nevertheless argued, during a brief question answer session, that today's political leaders are often . . .

How to Give Four Generations Feedback

How to Give Four Generations Feedback | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
We currently have four generations of workers in the US workforce. Here’s how to give effective performance feedback to each one.

 

We currently have four generations of workers in the US based business world, each one holding different ideas, attitudes, and thought bubbles about the workplace and about each other.

 

This can lead to ongoing communication problems, especially with more gen-Xers and millennials starting to move into positions of responsibility.

 

Nowhere is clear communication more important than in the area of feedback. Here are a few suggestions on how to give effective feedback to each generation (keeping in mind that I am making some broad generalizations here for the sake of simplicity!).
