Effective leadership requires a high level of emotional intelligence that enables us to understand how the things we say and do come across to others.

Ariana Amorim's insight:
(From the article): Effective leadership requires a high level of emotional intelligence that enables us to understand how the things we say and do come across to those around us. That said, it’s easy to say “don’t be that guy” when somebody says something offensive; what’s more difficult is preventing “that guy” from knocking us off our own game.

How To Create The Culture You Want With Stories

How To Create The Culture You Want With Stories | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
What stories are told in your organization today? Are you aware of them? Do they reinforce your desired culture or do they inspire undesired actions?

Ariana Amorim's insight:

The author of this article, S. Chris Edmonds, shares a few incredibly important points for leaders sharing stories. The first one is that stories help guide behavior. Tell the wrong stories and you'll be sorry.

 

On the other hand, if a leader knows the right stories to share, the bottom line increases. Gotta love that. Makes you wonder why more CEOs are paying attention this. And if you are a CEO who does -- yay!

 

I will also point out that sharing stories is not enough. Rewards and acknowledgement are critical for success. You'll see what I mean when you read the article.

 

What I also really like in this post are the 2 stories Edmonds shares to make his point. Not only are they good stories, they drive home the advice he brings to the table. Enjoy.

Forgiving: The Hidden Dimension of Exceptional Leadership

Forgiving: The Hidden Dimension of Exceptional Leadership | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

This article explores the concept of forgiveness in the context of leadership, and suggests that forgiveness is one of the keys that distinguish mediocre or ineffective leadership from the exceptional. Below, the authors analyse the forgiving personality through a psychodynamic lens, and discuss how truly transformational leaders use forgiveness to advance societies, organisations and individuals.

Helena Gonçalves's curator insight, October 9, 2013 4:26 AM

Leaders have such an important effect on many people’s lives that their lack of forgiveness can create a climate where anger, bitterness and animosity prevent a whole organisation, society or nation from being creative, learning, growing and developing their full potential.

10 Ways To Make Each Day A Leadership Masterpiece

10 Ways To Make Each Day A Leadership Masterpiece | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Years ago, I picked up a pearl of wisdom from coaching great, John Wooden. Make each day your masterpiece!  Living at that level is a powerful and challenging concept.  Most of us fall short and it‘s easy to blame our circumstances and those around us for their distraction.  Yet, a leader has a duty to perform at the highest possible level and an honest assessment may reveal days laden with missed leadership opportunities.


The following daily goals will help assess your performance.  You can use them to review your leadership opportunities at the beginning of the day and assess your performance at the end.  In time, these goals will become habits and when they do, you may find you are making each day your leadership masterpiece.

Why are most messages so uninspiring, so unconvincing?

By the same token, what magic do both the speeches of Martin Luther King and the marketing of Apple have that move us to believe and act?

Simon Sinek, author of Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, has an interesting theory:

 

People don’t buy what you do. They buy why you do it… Start with “Why.”

7 Valuable Skills That Top Leaders and High Achievers Have Mastered

7 Valuable Skills That Top Leaders and High Achievers Have Mastered | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
1. A well-developed personal philosophy

Successful leaders know what their philosophy is; they understand their thinking and their reasoning. A clear philosophy allows you to set your expectations and articulate your definition of success so you can set a clear path to your goals. It prepares you for an extraordinary destiny.

2. Undeniable persistence

Edison failed 2,000 times before he discovered electricity. John Chambers overcame dyslexia to build Cisco. People who are successful never quit, and people who succeed never give up. When failure is never an option, you don't give up. You find another contact, another way, another point of entry, and you keep trying until you accomplish what you have set out to do. Persistence means picking yourself up every day and going after what you want without allowing anything to get in your way.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

(From the article): The Golden Rule: Above all else, treat others as you’d like to be treated


By showing others the same courtesy you expect from them, you will gain more respect from coworkers, customers, and business partners. Holding others in high regard demonstrates your company’s likeability and motivates others to work with you. This seems so simple, as do so many of these principles — and yet many people, too concerned with making money or getting by, fail to truly adopt these key concepts.
