Boringness:  The Secret to Great Leadership | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it
Until recently, I hadn't really known any great leaders. As a writer, the highest-ranking people I deal with are editors, and they're pretty much just writers who have gotten lazy. The only thing an editor has ever led me into is a bar.

Great Leadership: 3 Ways to Improve Your Positive Intelligence

Great Leadership: 3 Ways to Improve Your Positive Intelligence | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it


Your mind is your best friend, but it is also your worst enemy, involved in self-sabotage. To illustrate, when your mind tells you that you should prepare for tomorrow’s important meeting, it is acting as your friend, causing positive action. When it wakes you up at 3:00 a.m. anxious about the meeting and warning you for the hundredth time about the many consequences of failing, it is acting as your enemy; it is simply exhausting your mental resources without any redeeming value. No friend would do that.

John Michel's curator insight, January 16, 2013 10:18 PM

Positive Intelligence is a concept taught at Stanford University designed to help you take control of your thinking so you can mazimize your ability to achieve positive results in all you do. Without a strong foundation of Positive Intelligence, attempts at improving performance or personal fulfillment are analogous to planting elaborate new gardens while leaving voracious snails free to roam. The wise investment is to work to raise Positive Intelligence first. The results are often reported to be gamechanging for the team, and lifechanging for the individual.

How to act like a leader? | Peter Borner

How to act like a leader? | Peter Borner | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it
What impacts the perception of your ability to lead inthose around you?

 

Often it is the little things that impact how others around you perceive your ability to lead. There are a few basic rules that, in my opinion, go a long way towards helping set the right perceptions:

 

Be accountable – It is not always possible to get everything right every time.  Playing the blame game is a sure sign that you are not a leader. Wear your Integrity proudly – Always be truthful. Nothing demolishes your credibility like being caught out telling lies, being insincere or simply not being genuine. Once you have lost your credibility, getting it back is an almost impossible task.
