donhornsby's curator insight, January 25, 2013 8:31 AM

(From the article): There are different seasons in life, and each offers opportunities for transformation and positive change. The triumphs and trials we experience can empower us as individuals, and enable us to pay it forward. Some see scars as ugly or disfiguring. But believe it or not, scars can make your inner spirit soar and become a vital partner in helping you make a difference. They can be an inspiration and lead to a positive impact on your own life and the lives of those around you.

(From the article): There’s no better time to start a ban on gossip than now. Real leaders don’t participate in gossip and they don’t tolerate gossip from others. To improve productivity and build a work environment where employees love to come to work, take the lead on reducing gossip.

Message certainly worth spreading. Authentic leadership takes time, growth, and great deal of self-discovery and reflection. But putting time and effort into finding confidence and security in being "myself" is certainly energy well spent.

Many of us have been brought up to think that humility is a virtue. Isn’t personal branding contradictory to being humble, and, therefore, bad? The answer is “no.” Having humility and doing a good job at personal branding are not mutually exclusive.

Leadership: Breed Accountability NOT Blame - Kate Nasser

One of the questions leaders often ask me is, “How do we increase employee accountability?”

The short answer is — by not blaming anyone. Accountability is the profitable practice of initiative, ownership, and follow-through. It is not blame.


Via Richard Andrews

We often here talk about a 'blame culture'.  I wonder what a 'forgiveness culture' would look and feel like?  Blame seems natural but surely isn't hard wired - we can autonomously decide to change it. Seems like it starts with us...

Employee Engagement - The Evidence - Engage For Success

Employee Engagement - The Evidence - Engage For Success | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

The UK has an employee engagement deficit. Survey after survey indicates that only around one third of UK workers say they are engaged – a figure which leaves the UK ranked ninth for engagement levels amongst the world’s twelfth largest economies as ranked by GDP (Kenexa 2009).


Via Richard Andrews
David Hain's insight:

It seems to me that the case for better performance through better engagement is proved time and again.  Yet when I look at the annual surveys, the numbers change very slowly if at all.

 

So, either the evidence is wrong, which I don't believe.  Or organistions don't knowit, believe it or implement it very well.  Or something else I haven't fathomed yet...

 

Any ideas?

"It’s a truism that thought leaders tend to be the most successful individuals or firms in their respective fields. Furthermore, in the research literature, there’s a general consensus that being a thought leader whether you’re an individual or employed at an organization and you want to grow the business, or even an association seeking new members as well as more generous sponsors, being a thought leader can make a very significant and positive difference.
