The Five Top Leadership Blind Spots

The Five Top Leadership Blind Spots | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

An interesting pattern begins to emerge when you look at which issues leaders seem to struggle with clearly identifying as areas of weakness or risk within their organization.

 

Consider them Blind Spots – those unseen things that create danger that we don’t react to until too late. Excelling at never being blind to these issues will clearly make the difference between being average and being great in your career.

Leadership is Healthy

Leadership is Healthy | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Leadership is healthy.

 

Your true leadership grows out of recognizing and appreciating your true self. Leadership is not about being someone else; leadership is about being who you are.

 

The health of your leadership reflects your own health.

 

There is nothing inherently stressful about leadership. There are very effective leaders who do not suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and other stress-related issues. There are very good leaders who regularly take time to reflect and to listen. There are leaders whose leadership benefits not only their organizations, but also themselves.

 

Leadership is more than just making good decisions about the bottom line, or setting the right course for the future.

 

Leadership is about using what you have to its best advantage in the long run.

Four Lessons From the Best Bosses

Four Lessons From the Best Bosses | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

"Having a great boss shouldn't be such an unusual experience."

 

My first boss at Bell Labs had a habit of yelling. While he was an equal-opportunity yeller, when he shouted at me in my first department meeting, I got up, told him when he wanted to talk, not yell, I'd be in my office and walked out. I was 20 years old, just out of undergrad, and sitting among a group of aghast Ph.D.'s . Perhaps this was not the best initial career move. But about 30 minutes later, he walked into my office and apologized. He never yelled at me again (though he did keep yelling at the rest of the team), and became one of three manager-mentors that shaped my career at Bell Labs and AT&T — and taught me to manage others and myself. I'll share one story from each boss and the lesson I learned from each.

 

That first boss, the reformed yeller, provided multiple opportunities for visibility up to the president of Bell Labs, coaching me all the way. He went out on a limb to make me the first person promoted to Member of Technical Staff (MTS) without a Ph.D. or M.S., and under the age of 25.

How LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter Have Changed the ROI of Leadership - Forbes

How LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter Have Changed the ROI of Leadership - Forbes | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

"Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter have changed the ROI on leadership and it’s your responsibility to get in the game."

 

Excerpts:

 

As a former C-level exec, I was skeptical myself, but now I’m a believer. Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter have changed the ROI on leadership and it’s your responsibility to get in the game.

 

About a year ago, the head of marketing for a healthcare company told me, “our leaders are not paid to write and express their POV outside their immediate roles & responsibilities. Besides, many of them don’t write well and would tarnish their image if they tried.”

 

I responded  ...many of your smaller competitors have invested in activating the voices of their senior executives by training them how to blog and also how to utilize social media to expand their reach and influence.”

 

This prediction recently became a reality and not only has the head of marketing been fired, but the company has had to hire new talent that understands how to implement the power of social media.

Email Marketing vs Social Media Marketing

Email Marketing vs Social Media Marketing | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

According to a Report produced by Royal Pingdom, Internet 2011 in numbers, there were more than 2.2bn email users in 2011 and 3.4bn email accounts, this figure growing by 500m. According to Radicati, this number is expected to grow to 4.1bn by the end of 2015.

There is always a tendency when new technologies come along to throw out the old in favour of the new. Email is often seen as out of date and its value diminished by the exciting opportunities that social media appears to open up.
