12 Most Profound Life Lessons I learned from Stephen Covey

12 Most Profound Life Lessons I learned from Stephen Covey | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Bushra Azhar contemplates the 12 Most Profound Life Lessons I learned from Stephen Covey.

 

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.

 

I am a huge fan of his teachings; his lessons of empathy and the importance of listening have not only made me a better person but have also helped shape my career in ways that conventional management thinking never could have.


Below are the 12 most profound life lessons I learned from this great man....

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?

How Leaders Become Self-Aware

How Leaders Become Self-Aware | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

"A plethora of people, courses, and self-help guides profess to lead you by the hand to the promised land of business success. The problem is that things are always messier than the how-to's make them out to be. This is why it is often better to consider less the specifics and more the principles and qualities that bring success.

 

In my experience — and in the research my co-authors and I did for our new book, Heart, Smarts, Guts, and Luck — there is one quality that trumps all, evident in virtually every great entrepreneur, manager, and leader. That quality is self-awareness. The best thing leaders can to improve their effectiveness is to become more aware of what motivates them and their decision-making."

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.
