The NEW Leader » Just Coach It-The 3Q Edge | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

The New Leader Knows that Surviving and Thriving Means Learning and Relearning
In a rapidly changing world, in a global marketplace where the sheer velocity of change, challenges, competition and opportunities before us is unprecedented; our ability to embrace individual and collective learning, relearning, doing and re-doing is the linchpin that can help us use what is to create and recreate what can be.  All organizations, small and large need to get a grip on what is and what can be.  Inertia, bureaucratic fumbling, confused messages, thwarted communication and the political morass of behaviors that impede communication, collaboration must be addressed and changed.  Change is not a threat, it is our greatest hope.  Leading forward means changing forward, and doing so means embracing our individual and collective potential to learn, re-learn.  A small perceptual shift in how we see the problems or challenges we face can be the genesis for our greatest potential and success.

Five Key Steps to Habit Change from Dan Goleman

Last week I heard about an executive who had a self-defeating leadership habit: whenever a direct report’s performance disappointed him, he launched into a vicious attack on that person.

In Canada and the United States, having frequent contact with neighbors was associated with higher levels of well-being, as was the feeling of truly belonging in a group. "If everyone in a community becomes more connected, the average level of subjective well-being would increase."

Being and doing are not at odds

Being and doing are not at odds | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"

Every time I write something on the topic of personal productivity, a few people suggest that maybe doing more isn’t appropriate at all.

 

As a friend of mine suggested on the Facebook page, Western society has an obsession with productivity. We grow up being taught that we want to “do well” but we’re not often taught explicitly what that means.

Success is a vague word, and in the absence of a meaningful definition it seems to refer to little more than having an above average income and a lot of phone calls to return."

more...
Annette Swann's curator insight, June 17, 2013 6:35 AM

An interesting perspective, since I often hear people say we need to be 'human beings' not 'human doings' - my favorite line is "Personal productivity doesn’t need to be at odds with mindfulness. Being doesn’t need to be separate from doing... Doing the work that serves your real values improves the present reality of your life"

Bad leadership produces bad results and a bad example to follow, even if only to learn what not to do.  We don’t study divorce to learn what makes marriages work; we don’t study addiction to discover the secrets to sobriety; why would we use bad leadership to show us what good leadership is supposed to do?

16 Harsh Truths That Will Make You Stronger, Smarter & More Powerful

16 Harsh Truths That Will Make You Stronger, Smarter & More Powerful | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Life, as we all know, is a series of games of many forms. It is a game of will, a game of speed and a game of wit as well. One thing is for sure, neither of these are in any way simple to understand or overcome. If only we were informed of this abundance of compromising situations earlier.

Throughout our young lives we have always been sheltered by school, lied to by our older peers and were always told that if we do x y and z that everything will just work out with no resistance whatsoever.

Of course, as we get older and graduate from college, we soon realize that the real world bears some harsh truths that some of us are no necessarily ready for. The real world is a cold place that can crumble a person and break them down within seconds.

It’s there to work against you, not with you. Still, it is ultimately up to you as to how you handle this clash of wills and how to make sure you and only you are in charge of what happens to you. Accepting these harsh truths and formulating a game plan to adapt to them and end up on top will greatly assist you in your ability to roll with all the punches life throws at you, we assure you that much.

Stubborn People That Don’t Get It

Stubborn People That Don’t Get It | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

 My friend Steve is a smart guy. He is a hard-driving business man and he is always coming up with new models for new businesses.

 

Recently Steve and I were talking about people who just don’t see to get it.  It was then that he knocked me over with this statement:

“The people that don’t get it; they don’t get that they don’t get it.”

 

If you are lucky, someone mentors or coaches you through your blind spot and you stop hitting your thumb with a hammer.

David Hain's insight:

If your only tool is a hammer, you will tend to see everything as a nail!

Attitude is Everything | The Leadership Hub

Attitude is Everything | The Leadership Hub | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
One of my favourite quotes is “the positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible”

This is something that I truly believe.

I often say ‘the first step on the path to success is trying’, but we will never really try unless we have a positive attitude and believe we can do it.

If we start something without believing we will be successful, then we are not really trying, we are just going through the motions with quitting already in our minds.

When I talk about trying, I am talking about really giving it a go, believing that if you give it your best shot, then you have a chance of success.

That doesn’t mean it’s success is guaranteed, but if you try not believing you will succeed, then failure is guaranteed.

This is my first of a series of articles connecting fitness and exercise to our ability to lead.  As a bodybuilder and leadership practioner, I am loving the opportunity to connect these dots!!!

 

From the article:

 

Exercise can improve your brain function!


Studies conducted have provided insight into the effect exercising has on improving the function of our brains.

 

While improving the way our body breaks down and uses the healthier, more nutritious food we are consuming, the brain also enjoys various other benefits.

John Michel's curator insight, June 12, 2013 6:18 AM

The better your ability to think clearly, analyze options, and remember details, the better you will be able to lead. This ability applies whether you are leading an established team, your family, or starting a new business.
