Are You a 21st Century Leader?

Are You a 21st Century Leader? | A View on Leadership | Scoop.it
You can tell a 21st century leader because they don't talk about how their organization is structured, they focus on bringing their shared purpose to the world through their communities

Ian Berry's curator insight, September 15, 2015 10:35 PM

Like this "The 21st century leader goes into the world and breaks down walls by bringing communities together in conversations. The language they use matters so they stay away from calling people inside or outside their organization an "audience" or a "stakeholder." They know the only time you have an audience is when you are watching a movie, a show or at a concert. The 21st century is about community and open, two-way conversations. We no longer need to yell at people and broadcast to get their attention. People want to truly be engaged in conversation and listened to. The new breed of leaders respect people and allow for communities to form where they no longer need to be at the head."

Via Ariana Amorim
Katherine Bryant's insight:

Athletes are increasing becoming familiar with the formula, E+R=O, or an event plus your response to it equals the outcome.

“You sometimes can’t control events, but you do have control over your response and how you respond to those events will determine the outcome,” says Boucher.

“Too often we let our emotions get hold of our response, and our emotions steer the response in a negative way, which leads to an outcome we might not want.”

6 Ways For Leaders To Make Their Messages Resonate

6 Ways For Leaders To Make Their Messages Resonate | A View on Leadership | Scoop.it
When you're truly invested in your message, you don't have to shout.

Via Bobby Dillard, donhornsby, Roy Sheneman, PhD, Wise Leader™
Katherine Bryant's insight:

Great summary here of how to truly communicate with your team. My favourite is the advice to "Be empathetic" : 

Decide to choose empathy over easier, short-cut optionsIdentify a time when you’ve experienced a similar eventRecall how that event affected you and relive the emotionsThen act based upon your newfound understanding

Taking a few moments before communicating an idea to walk through these four steps will help you connect more deeply with your team.

more...
donhornsby's curator insight, September 4, 2015 9:41 AM

(From the article): To increase your chances of resonating, ask, "Is this the appropriate time to deliver this idea? Is there anything already being discussed that I can connect my own idea to in order to give it context?"


Your voice is your single greatest possession as a leader. It's what allows you to mobilize and direct your team, and ultimately it's how you build a body of work you can be proud of. If your work matters to you, make the effort to cultivate a voice that resonates, and you’ll find your influence multiplying in ways you never expected.

I know that listening is super important when it comes to creating strong, lasting relationships, but despite realizing the importance of listening, it's never been my strong suit. 

 

As Alfred Brendel wrote, "The word 'listen' has the same letters as the word 'silent.'" Embracing silence is one of the great skills of a good listener.

9 Ways Leaders Insult Their Employees

9 Ways Leaders Insult Their Employees | A View on Leadership | Scoop.it
Many leaders lack executive presence and the basic fundamentals to effectively communicate with and manage people. Holding a fancy title doesn’t give a leader permission to disrespect and antagonize their employees. Today’s leader must be emotionally intelligent enough to know when they are crossing the line. Unfortunately, many people lack maturity as leaders and find themselves insulting their employees all too often.
Katherine Bryant's insight:

Great list including micromanaging, being unappreciative of effort and hypocrisy.
