Welll, don't be too intimidated or even bored by the long list... they are perls... OK, you've met perhaps even each (don't think so but might be...) but it's such a goog arrangements to have them together and need nt read a whole book (though there are recommendations within about some)... it is worth even to copy it out to recheck them from time to time... good reading and thinking about them....

It's not about what you know... It's how you act!

How to convince people – give people a reason to #follow and #trust you

How to convince people – give people a reason to #follow and #trust you | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

People don’t want more information.
They are up to their eyeballs in information.
They want #faith - faith in you, your goals, your #success, in the #story you tell.

 

says Annette Simmons, author of “Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins”.

 

How do we reach that people have faith in us?

 

So easy!

 

If we show us from our best side, are authentic and trustworthy and give people appreciation and love they will #respect us, too. What we give comes back to us! The seeds we sow we will harvest one day! Life is a process of giving and taking.

Let's sum it up with a quote from Theodore Roosevelt  "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care"  John C Maxwell has also been given credit for this quote; regardless  you must be a willing to serve others unconditionally!

Supportive Leadership – The 5 Basic Rules

Supportive Leadership – The 5 Basic Rules | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

More than two thirds of all problems in our society result from a decrepit leadership culture in economy and politics which allows indispensable profound reforms (i.e. climate protection, finance and tax legislation) and “green” technologies for our environment and thus a qualitative (and not just quantitative) growth to only a limited extent. The whole of Europe is deeply in dept. The standards of living and raw materials become more and more expensive. Nature and “deceived” people strike back because leadership elites show a high degree of inertia. Those responsible lack the capability to anticipate in time the necessary processes of innovation and change, to control and implement them.

 

It is true that companies impart specialized competences, but they criminally neglect the training for key skills like competences regarding change, relations, creativity and leadership. However, it is exactly these skills which ensure a sustainable power of success of an exceedingly demanding society and a flexible employability of its people – even in critical times.

How to Make a Decision

How to Make a Decision | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Last summer, I found myself in a dilemma to make a decision. Amidst my struggle to find fulfillment from the various jobs, I was offered a regular salary and benefits kind of job. Being offered any type of employment after a particularly long dry spell was fantastic, but I was hung up on the fact that it wasn’t how I pictured it — the pay wasn’t great and the industry was one I never thought I’d be in.

 

I was faced with an important decision: Do I accept the new position and a chance at a little security, or continue searching for something different, something that fit the long laundry list of must-haves I had concocted for my professional life?

 

Besides everything else, I was most terrified about accepting a position that I wouldn’t be happy in. In fact, a fear of not being happy was a place I operated from often, one I knew had succeeded in keeping me from trying new things.

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Leaders' primary objective is to empower others to make decisions and take actions that are aligned with the organization’s vision, purpose, and strategy. These nuances are the softer side of leadership, beyond the technical skills that you have already mastered.

 

Leadership is the "eighth wonder of the world." It is better seen and felt than defined and said. It’s easy to intellectualize, but elusive to actualize.

 

The world’s most impactful leaders in all arenas, from business to government, understand the paradox that although leadership starts with the leader, it’s never about the leader. This wisdom should be emulated and applied by everyone who aspires to leadership.
