The Leader Who Wasn't There

The Leader Who Wasn't There | Change Champions | Scoop.it
The prevailing story is that we have more distractions, more information and more decisions pressing our lives than ever before. Our attention span is shrinking; as little as 20 seconds according to some experts. Leaders in many organizations are stretched to breaking; juggling meetings, emails, inquiries and issues. As we manage the task in front of us we are already considering the next or perhaps mulling over a more complex issue that awaits our attention.

This frantic mental traffic puts us into a sort of trance. We see without seeing. We listen without hearing. We are here but not present. We may be in the room but our mind is in some faraway place or time.

So what does this mean in practical terms?

Via David Hain
Ian Berry's insight:

I love

Presence says – “I see you.”

Presence says – “I hear you”

Presence says – “You matter”

Presence says – “I care.”


Being present is a choice. As Nigel Risner says "when you're in the room, be in the room."

John Michel's curator insight, November 15, 10:35 AM

When we give the gift of presence we make a critical investment in our relationships and our leadership.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, November 16, 5:03 AM

"And let’s face it..

it’s hard to be an effective leader…

if you’re not there."


"As we manage the task in front of us we are already considering the next or perhaps mulling over a more complex issue that awaits our attention.

Why Company Change Programs Fail � And Why They Don�t Have To

Ian Berry's insight:

Last paragraph says it all "“Communicating about change is less about motivation (the exchange of behaviors for rewards) and more about inspiration (appealing to an innate desire to be a part of and contribute to something really important).” It’s a great lesson—and goes a long way toward explaining why so many change programs ultimately fail."
