(From the article): A leader’s daily struggle is to remain focused on our most important things. The challenge is just how do you stay focused on what’s important? Like many of us Benjamin Franklin found it difficult to stay focused. Especially when we’re bombarded every day with an overwhelming number of distracting tasks, external pressures and conflicting priorities.

9 Different Definitions On The Meaning Of Work-Life Balance

9 Different Definitions On The Meaning Of Work-Life Balance | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Ever since technology enabled us to work around the clock if we choose to, separating work and personal life has become tough for the best of us.

If we all have 24 hours in a day to spend and we’re all putting in extra hours to build a better product, company, or brand, then how do we come up with another set of “extra” hours to “balance” our life?

The concept of balancing your work and life seems simple, but what makes “can we have it all?” so hard to answer is that work-life balance means something different to everyone. Below, nine business leaders share how they achieve their version of work-life balance.
Know What Feeds Your Energy

Jacki Zehner, CEO of Women Moving Millions

When Zehner, the first female trader to be invited into partnership at Goldman Sachs, left the firm in 2002, she thought work-life balance would get better. So far, it’s gotten worse considering the numerous boards and committee chairs she sits on. If she isn’t tending to her work responsibilities, Zehner is busy connecting people. Her biggest challenge: She doesn’t know when to “turn off” work.

Rewire Your Brain and Become a Better Leader

Rewire Your Brain and Become a Better Leader | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

It's not the carrot or the stick that causes people to follow a leader; it's whether they feel certain they will achieve what the leader says they'll achieve.

Therefore, to lead effectively, the correct question to ask yourself is: "How do I create a sense of certainty in other people?"

Once again, neuroscience has an answer. Humans have what are called "mirror neurons" in nearly every part of the brain: the premotor cortex, the supplementary motor area, the primary somatosensory cortex, and the inferior parietal cortex.

Mirror neurons cause people to imitate the behaviors they see in others. Therefore, to create certainty in others you must first create certainty in yourself.

This is why great leaders always seem so self-confident. Self-confidence is the outward manifestation of the sense of certainty that they've created within themselves, a certainty that infects everyone around them.

David Hain's insight:

The latest neuroscience research explains exactly how to inspire people to follow where you lead.

Joe Boutte's curator insight, October 17, 6:04 AM

Be a mirror!  By displaying confidence and competence, along with other leadership characteristics, we can affect how others see themselves.  Being a positive influence and example goes a long way in everyday leadership.

On Authentic Leadership – Three Foundational Elements for Knowing Yourself

On Authentic Leadership – Three Foundational Elements for Knowing Yourself | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Authentic leadership is a grand, worthy, and potentially overwhelming goal for any leader to attain. Based on more than 16 years as a leadership coach and consultant, I’m convinced that authentic leaders are the best leaders in any industry sector. For growing leaders, the goal of being an authentic leader is both energizing and inspiring. Yet all too often our human nature and the battle against our doubts and fears make it seem an almost impossible goal to attain.
Over the next set of articles, let’s explore the foundational elements of leadership authenticity. The first and most important element is to know yourself, and this idea encompasses three major points.

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, January 7, 2013 2:23 PM

Why do most managers and executives have trouble "coaching" their teams to higher levels of peformance? Why is it that so few companies spend NOTHING on training managers and executives how to coach, inspire, delegate, assign, and give feedback?


Everyone pays lipservice to the idea of leading/managing teams, but so few companies put their resources behind the concept of being a great place to work because of the quality of the leadership/management.


We seem to have taken the "heart" out of leading/managing and it's become a very sterile environment that just doesn't work. Trust comes from the heart, and if you're not leading, managing, coaching from that perspective, your team will NEVER trust you!

5 Things You Can Do To Improve Your Relationship With Your Boss (And Your Next Boss)

5 Things You Can Do To Improve Your Relationship With Your Boss (And Your Next Boss) | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

“The most important driver of employee engagement is the relationship they have with their immediate manager,” says Piera Palazzolo, Senior Vice President of Dale Carnegie Training. She says the most successful relationships are those where bosses and employees really get to know one another.

 

“That’s different from years ago, when you were supposed to ask any personal questions. Those lines are blurred now, people want you to care about them, particularly if there’s something going on in their lives that might affect their performance.”

 

1) Find out exactly what your boss wants, and understand the pressure they’re working under.
