Leadership Begins at Home | Michael Hyatt

Leadership Begins at Home | Michael Hyatt | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Most of us tend to view leading as something that’s work-related—it’s something we do with and for our constituents, co-workers, or congregants. And if we’re lucky, we hope that our leadership will trickle down to our family lives at home. But we’ve got it backwards.

 

A little girl asked her mom, “Why does Daddy always bring work home?”
Her upbeat mom answered, “Oh, Daddy has so much work to do that he can’t get it all done at the office.”

 

And the child said, “Why don’t they just put him in a slower group?”

How to Make Each Day a Downhill Stroll Instead of an Uphill Struggle

How to Make Each Day a Downhill Stroll Instead of an Uphill Struggle | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Back in college, I came across a life-changing personal development concept. It made an immediate difference to my academic work – and it’s still something that helps me every day.

That concept was the idea of resistance, set out in Mark Forster’s book Get Everything Done and Still Have Time to Play. Resistance is that feeling you get when you think about a big project or a difficult task; you naturally want to put it off in favor of something easier.


Resistance crops up when:


You’ve got a book/article/newsletter to write

 

You need to completely rework your resume

 

You have to make a difficult phone call to a problem client

 

You know you should go for a jog … but it’s raining outside

 

…and in pretty much any situation when you’re facing something hard.

The Five Biggest Mistakes CEOs Make in Speaking (no stories)

The Five Biggest Mistakes CEOs Make in Speaking (no stories) | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Most CEOs are not inspiring. After years of working with leaders in business, it's hard to come to any other conclusion.

 

The 5 mistakes listed here are right on -- I experience them all the time when working with my coaching clients.

 

Number 4 is -- CEOs don't tell stories. That's for sure.

Number 5 is -- CEO's reading speeches instead of talking authentically with their audiences.

Number 3 is -- they are too stiff (that comes from not telling stories or not knowing how to tell stories)

Number 2 is -- they don't write their own material. No one can write your personal stories for you, BTW.

Number 1 is -- CEOs are not conveying a vision. Hey, we want to be inspired!

 

Well, for sure many business people of all types suffer from the same mistakes. So what to do? Find the stories you are passionate about telling, learn to tell them well and authentically, leave the notes at home, and please -- don't practice in front of a mirror! That's the kiss of death.

 

There are many more insights here in this article about how these mistakes show up for people, so go grab them.

Examining Organizational Ethics

Examining Organizational Ethics | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

by SUSAN R. MEISINGER

 

Despite best efforts and good intentions, no HR executive is going to be able to reshape organizational behaviors when the opposite behavior is being modeled at the top. The two executives who left Enron early -- neither of whom had a new job in hand -- certainly made the right career decision.

 

But, at the same time, I also believe each HR executive has a responsibility to actively encourage and nourish an ethical culture -- when it is possible to do so and even when he or she thinks it already exists.

10 Things You Must Give Up to Be Successful

10 Things You Must Give Up to Be Successful | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.”
-Coco Chanel

 

When we think about how to achieve success, we often focus on the skills and habits we should add to our lives.  But sometimes the key to success actually lies in our ability to give up certain habits and behaviors.  So starting today…

 

1. Give up the habit of waiting. – The way you spend your time defines who you are.  You don’t get to choose how you are going to die, or when; you can only decide how you are going to live right now.  Trust me, a year from now you will wish you had started today.  Read The Now Habit.

 

2. Give up the excuses. – Sooner or later you will come to realize that it’s not what you lose along the way that counts; it’s what you do with what you still have.  When you let go, forgive, and move on, you in no way change the past, you change the future.

 

3. Give up trying to be perfect. – Sometimes we try to show the world that we are flawless in hopes that we will be liked and accepted by everyone.  But we can’t please everyone, and we shouldn’t try.  The beauty of us lies in our vulnerability, our love, our complex emotions – our authentic imperfections.  When we embrace who we are and decide to be authentic, instead of perfect, we open ourselves up to real relationships, real happiness, and real success.  There is no need to put on a mask.  There is no need to pretend to be someone you’re not.  You are perfectly imperfect just the way you are.
