The Role of Leaders in Helping Others Find Meaning at Work | INSEAD

The Role of Leaders in Helping Others Find Meaning at Work | INSEAD | Leadership & Change Management | Scoop.it

"it is critically important that leaders find ways to help all of their employees connect or re-connect to what is important, to a purpose, to our universal search for meaning.

And just as importantly, leaders need to re-connect with their own sense of purpose to be able to continue to fuel their own inner fire."


4 criteria are listed

  • The work has an important impact on the well-being of human beings
  • The work is associated with an important virtue or personal value
  • The work has an impact that extends beyond the immediate time frame or creates a ripple effect
  • The work builds supportive relationships or a sense of community in people


Sabrina Murphy's insight:

(Re)connecting with one's sense of purpose: the key to fuel one's inner life.

"The difference between winners and losers is how they handle losing."  Rosabeth Moss Kanter 

 

Sometimes losing is actually winning!  What an oxymoron!!  But how true.  I recently experienced this with a contract I'd won fair and square, only to lose it because the client could not appreciate the value that I brought to the table!  For me losing that contract was the biggest win... it freed me from having to make the decision to walk away.

The Power of Conversational Leadership — HBS Working Knowledge

The Power of Conversational Leadership — HBS Working Knowledge | Leadership & Change Management | Scoop.it

CEOs express an aspiration to promote a conversation in their organization. They talk about wanting everyone to be on board with the conversation about what they want to do with the company. It applies to all processes a company uses to circulate information across the organization, rather than just from the top down.


A strategic conversation based on 4 elements:

  • Intimacy is about leadership
  • Interactivity is about channels
  • Inclusion is about content
  • Intentionality is about goals, vision, and the strategy of getting things done.

The First Requirement for Becoming a Great Boss...Courage to Seek Feedback

The First Requirement for Becoming a Great Boss...Courage to Seek Feedback | Leadership & Change Management | Scoop.it

We need to see ourselves as others see us, even when others' perceptions don't match our own.

Risking the possibility of finding out that others don't consider us the capable, well-intentioned bosses we think we are requires enormous courage.

The fact is, you don't know how others see you or whether they trust you, if you don't somehow ask.

Sabrina Murphy's insight:

When is the last time you asked?

John Michel's curator insight, April 2, 2013 5:54 AM

Among the many requirements placed on those who take responsibility for the performance of others, there is one that is rarely mentioned. Yet, ironically, it may be the most important because so much else depends on it.

That fundamental requirement is courage.
