Become a World-Changing Thought Leader

Become a World-Changing Thought Leader | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it
How do you become a thought leader?

 

Becoming a thought leader isn't just a process. It requires a passion for and a commitment to spreading ideas that can help others. Those that don't have that passion or that commitment are perhaps relegated to subject-matter experts who are called on to observe and react, but who are not often looked to for foresight or vision.

Harvard Business Review ~ Developing Mindful Leaders

Harvard Business Review ~ Developing Mindful Leaders | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

"If you want to transform an organization it's not about changing systems and processes so much as it's about changing the hearts and minds of people," says Weiss.

 

"Mindfulness is one of the all-time most brilliant technologies for helping to alleviate human suffering and for bringing out our extraordinary potential as human beings."

John Michel's curator insight, January 22, 2013 11:29 PM

Organizations invest billions annually on a success curriculum known as "leadership development," which ends up leaving so much on the table. Training and development programs almost universally focus factory-like on inputs and outputs — absorb curriculum, check a box; learn a skill, advance a rung; submit to assessment, fix a problem. Likewise, they leave too many people behind with an elite selection process that fast-tracks "hi-pos" and essentially discards the rest. And they leave most people cold with flavor of the month remedies, off sites, immersions, and excursions — which produce little more than a grim legacy of fat binders gathering dust on shelves.

What if, instead of stuffing people with curricula, models, and competencies, we focused on deepening their sense of purpose, expanding their capability to navigate difficulty and complexity, and enriching their emotional resilience? What if, instead of trying to fix people, we assumed that they were already full of potential and created an environment that promoted their long-term well-being? In other words, what if cultivating a successful inner life was front and center on the leadership agenda?

Efficienarta's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:59 AM

I thought that the points on "deepening their sense of purpose" and "expanding their capability to navigate difficulty" were particularly interesting.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, March 9, 2014 7:23 PM

Leadership development programmes often fall far short of expectations and rarely lead to long term change. Developing people is a process not an event.  Also check out - www.corporatecoachingnetwork.com.au

Thanks Robin for scooping this post. It took me a long time to really synthesize what I learned from the accumulated links. I'm working on this because I have to teaching an introductory workshop on content curation - and how it is useful for professional learning in ADDITION to an organization's content strategy. The big barrier is the sense of "being content fried" - a new word for information overload.

9 things successful people do differently

9 things successful people do differently | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

If you aren’t sure, you are far from alone in your confusion. It turns out that even brilliant, highly accomplished people are pretty lousy when it comes to understanding why they succeed or fail. The intuitive answer — that you are born predisposed to certain talents and lacking in others — is really just one small piece of the puzzle.

New Research: How Employee Engagement Hits the Bottom Line

New Research: How Employee Engagement Hits the Bottom Line | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

A new study shows a direct connection between how we feel at work and how we perform.

 

What would contribute most to your being both happier and more productive at work? How about feeling truly taken care of, appreciated, and trusted by your employer?

 

More than 100 studies have affirmed the connection between employee engagement and performance, but the Towers Watson 2012 Global Workforce Study — 32,000 employees across 30 countries — makes the most powerful, bottom line case yet for the connection between how we feel at work and how we perform.

 

This new study concludes that the traditional definition of engagement — the willingness to invest discretionary effort on the job — is no longer sufficient to fuel top performance in a world of relentlessly increasing demand. The problem is that "willing" doesn't guarantee "able."

The Whiner's Room

The Whiner's Room | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Seth Godin wrote a great short post on listening to naysayers, negative people, and haters.

 

These people just suck the life out of you. Run in the other direction. Life is way too short for even a moment to listen to their whining.

 

Oh and while you're at it - stop your whining. No one cares. It's a turn-off. The only people you attract are those who also like to whine. So stop it right now. Break that middle school habit you've been carrying for the past 30 years. It's unbecoming and embarrassing.

 

Surround yourself with positive, upbeat individuals who raise your game and help you to become something better. Think about being with people who inspire you - not those who un-inspire you.

When There Is Trust…The Dollars Flow

When There Is Trust…The Dollars Flow | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

A project manager and a web developer drew a dollar sign on the “trust” side and a penny sign, on “no trust” side.  They simply described it as the following:


“When there is trust, the dollars flow, when there is no trust, the pennies trickle.”

 

This drawing captured the essence of the activity from a business perspective. If there is trust, your team will maximize its efficiency and the results will be superior.


If the team lacks trust, the team’s efficiency will be compromised, the results will be limited and, very often, inferior.

Your body language shapes who you are

Using a few simple tweaks to body language, Harvard researcher Amy Cuddy discovers ways to help people become more powerful

 

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” - standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident - can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Six marketing lessons from Red Bull Stratos

Six marketing lessons from Red Bull Stratos | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

...1. Embrace a sense of purpose

‘Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?’ Steve Jobs’ pitch to John Sculley – the Pepsi-Cola CEO whom Jobs brought in to run Apple – probably wouldn’t wash with Red Bull founder Dietrich Mateschitz.

 

 

Red Bull Stratos has not only underlined the brand’s authentic link to extreme sport and innovation, it has also provided its employees with a motivation bigger than selling sugar water (or energy drinks for that matter) for the rest of their lives.
