Move Beyond "Me" to "We" in your Leadership Brand

Move Beyond "Me" to "We" in your Leadership Brand | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
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.

(From the article): The measure of your success is not just what others are saying about you, but in the impact you are making on the world. Moving from “me” to “we” makes your leadership brand both attractive and valuable.

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
David Hain's insight:

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.

Ideas are the Core of a Leadership Philosophy

Ideas are the Core of a Leadership Philosophy | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

“Great leaders lead by ideas.” – Rudolph W. Giuliani

John Boyd was famous for his emphasis on “people, ideas and technology. In that order”.

Great leaders lead, with ideas, not through positional power, authority or command. Ideas have significant power to shape the future of people, organisations and even nations. Ideas frame and form our understanding of the world. Ideas inform our beliefs and norms. Ideas drive our behaviour and actions. Ideas have enormous power to inspire change and transform worldviews. Consider how the ideas of Jesus Christ, Mahatma Ghandi, Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Jr. and more recently Nelson Mandela have transformed nations and changed the world.

For developing a personal leadership philosophy you have to start the process of reflecting about yourself, the world and then integrating a set of beliefs, principles and values into your leadership approach. But a leadership philosophy is not fixed in stone. Leaders are always on the search for new ideas, they are always learning and constantly embracing higher more empowering ideas. They incorporate these ideas into their leadership philosophy on an ongoing basis.

donhornsby's curator insight, January 20, 2013 9:13 AM

(From the article): Books and articles about leadership tend to focus on decisions, not questions. That’s because readers prefer clean narrative arcs and a relatively small cast of characters. We like to see leaders struggle a bit with adversity, but then rally the troops to victory. We value resolve and pride in leaders more than curiosity and selflessness.

 

When leaders ask others not only for their input, but to make their own decisions and accept responsibility, it doesn’t make for as good a story. The reasons for success are harder to pin down, the heroes spread throughout the organization. But which leader would you rather work for–the one who makes all the decisions or the one who trusts you to do your job, take risks, and learn?
