AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, November 14, 2013 10:43 AM

I love this post from the CEO at Happy Cog.  His honesty and transparency is something we need so much from the big boss.  

 

Most importantly, his courage in not only being reviewed but to talk about it and why it is importantly!

 

Here is a very good section about his advice to others:

 

Reality: I waited too long.If I can offer any advice to people in my position, it’s please don’t wait to get a candid assessment of what your coworkers think of how you’re steering the ship. Chances are, you’re not as smooth as you think.
Also, only by subjecting yourself to the same processes and protocols you impose on your colleagues will you truly understand how they impact them. You’re not immune.

It works when employees feel they can be honest. We did the same thing several years ago and basically were told not to say anything negative or we would be out of the profession. Sometimes silence says enough. I left my survey blank.

Lolly Daskal: Leave Your Values At The Door

Lolly Daskal: Leave Your Values At The Door | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Your values determine what is important and meaningful to you. They align with your purpose, and speak loudly and passionately to others -- and to yourself -- about who you are and what you're called to do in this world.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

"We live our best lives at the intersection of our values and our purpose. If we leave them out, we leave out the best parts of ourselves."

"We need values-based leaders at every level, and values-based organizations in every field. My message to you is this: Never, never, never leave your values at the door."

11 Simple Concepts to Become a Better Leader

11 Simple Concepts to Become a Better Leader | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Being likeable will help you in your job, business, relationships, and life. I interviewed dozens of successful business leaders for my last book, to determine what made them so likeable and their companies so successful. All of the concepts are simple, and yet, perhaps in the name of revenues or the bottom line, we often lose sight of the simple things - things that not only make us human, but can actually help us become more successful.


Here are the eleven most important principles to integrate to become a better leader...

The Secret Power of Vulnerability

The Secret Power of Vulnerability | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

 The power of  vulnerability is lost when you don’t dare or don’t know how.

 

Bill Treasurer, author of, “Leaders Open Doors,” said, “I used to drink too much. Way too much. … Three years after getting sober … I decided to reveal to my boss, a partner at Accenture, that I was in recovery. …

I didn’t expect my boss to pat me on my shoulder and say, ‘Good for you; you’re a drunk!’ I expected more of a reaction than I got.

After I told him that I was in recovery, my boss looked at me quizzically, and muttered, ‘I see.’ Then he made some small-talk and hurried to another meeting.”

“I regretted having told him…”

If you reveal your real self, what’s left if it’s rejected?

Great post.

Are You A Unilateral Control Freak?

Are You A Unilateral Control Freak? | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?”

 

“Life transforming” is how I would call Chris Argyris's seminar at Harvard. (...) Chris discovered tha tmanagers operate according to one of two models: unilateral control or mutual learning. Managers who practice unilateral control assume that they are right and anyone that disagrees with them is wrong; mutual learners assume that diverse perspectives may be valid and worth exploring. Chris found that all managers he studied operated according to the unilateral control model. It took some serious deprogramming and skill building to switch to the mutual learning model.

The Manager as Idea Coach

The Manager as Idea Coach | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

The root of the word "manager" comes from the same root as the words "manipulate" or "maneuver", meaning to "adapt or change something to suit one's purpose". Although these words may carry a pejorative meaning for some of us, there is nothing inherently wrong with them. Indeed, into each life a little manipulation and maneuvering must fall. (...)

However, there is another kind of manipulation and maneuvering that is a problem - when managers use their position to bend subordinates to their will. While short-term gains may result, in the end the heart is taken out of people. Your staff may become good soldiers, but they will lose something far more important in the process - their ability to think for themselves. General George Patton said it best, "Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity."

Rationale for positivity!

John Michel's curator insight, August 31, 2013 3:18 AM

We all know the power of being positive. Yet how often do we forget that power when leading during troubled times or with tormented teams? Let’s face it, we’re human. We forget and we lose our focus in the face of the details and daily disturbances that are part and parcel of the role of leader.

Yet we can learn some really powerful lessons from these studies in teaching our children. Here are three lessons to ponder.

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.

Research: What CEOs Really Want from Coaching

Research: What CEOs Really Want from Coaching | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Two-thirds of CEOs don't receive any outside advice on their leadership skills, and yet almost all would be receptive to suggestions from a coach. These stats are from a Stanford University/The Miles Group survey released this month, which asked 200 CEOs, board directors, and other senior executives questions about how they receive and view leadership advice. I asked the survey's co-authors, Stanford Graduate School of Business' David Larcker and The Miles Group CEO Stephen Miles some questions about what they found and how it applies to CEO coaching specifically.

Discussing The Un-discussable – How To Stay Sane At Work

Discussing The Un-discussable – How To Stay Sane At Work | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

“Contradiction,” is an ambiguous term. If you and your manager have different definitions, assumptions, or information, what seems impossible to you might seem natural to him.

 

In a healthy workplace, any apparent contradiction is discussable. 

In an unhealthy workplace, contradictions are un-discussable.


In this post, you will see how to approach your manager safely, how to resolve the dilemma if your manager is willing to cooperate, and how to stay sane if he doesn’t. But before you can open your manager’s door, you must open your own door to your employees.
