Give Leadership The Eagle ‘Eye’

Give Leadership The Eagle ‘Eye’ | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
“The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious.”  -John Scully Former CEO of Pepsi and Apple Computers The very act of leading and leadership requires a pioneer minds...

 

The very act of leading and leadership requires a pioneer mindset.   One that allows you to exist, maneuver, and motivate in separate planes at simultaneous times.  Leaders must apply consideration and thought to the parallels of the present and of the future…acknowledging the present as you cast vision for the future.   It requires a ‘foveae’ of focus for leadership…the same ‘foveae’ or center of focus that allows an eagle to see both forward and to the side synchronously.

 

In much the same way that the ‘eye’ of the eagle has the ability to see forward and to the side simultaneously, a leader must be out front providing the path and direction for those they lead…while serving and supporting side by side at the same time.  The push and pull of leading.  Ahead and alongside.  Much like the eagle that matches itself so closely in size and shape to the human eye, yet has the sharpness and strength of vision four times that of our very own.

Humans Can't Be Empathetic And Logical At The Same Time

Humans Can't Be Empathetic And Logical At The Same Time | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Brain scans find that the two modes are mutually exclusive. Logic and emotion tend to be considered as polar opposites.  When feelings go up, logic goes down, so we'd better understand our feelings, and the effects they have on our decisions, actions, behaviours and lives!

Unless you're a perfect leader, then being consistent is just another way of validating the status-quo. Great leaders make decisions that sometimes contradict prior decisions, because they want the best outcomes for the organization.

MOC the Week: How much do you challenge, contribute and change?

MOC the Week: How much do you challenge, contribute and change? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

I was watching a film on my journey home the other day and noticed this quote, inscribed on the back of the lead characters wrist watch:

 

Challenge, Contribute and Change

 

As often happens, this small moment could have been overlooked. After all, it turned out that this wasn't even a key moment in the film!

But this time, this moment made me stop and make note. But why, you may well ask?

Is it OK for Leaders to Be Scared?

Is it OK for Leaders to Be Scared? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
As a leader we can be scared and feel fear, but cannot stop, and be frozen in our tracks doing nothing. Here are some steps you can take to lead, even when you are scared.

 

At this time of the year being scared or scary is kinda cool – after all it is Halloween! But this is a short season and leaders lead all year long, so the question asked by the title of this piece is a good one – “is it ok for leaders to be scared?”

 

Most leaders would say No! After all they rationalize that leaders must be tough. Leaders must be out front, leaders should be resilient and heroic. Think Mel Gibson in Braveheart, Harrison Ford as the President in Air Force One, Sally Field in Norma Rae, or John Wayne in just about any movie… that is often consciously or not, the picture we have of leaders. And if that is the picture, fear is not in that picture.

 

My answer isn’t quite so fast or quite so definite. Is it ok for leaders to be scared?

Criticism can have a huge and sometimes crushing impact on people. Too often, in our anger and displeasure, we lash out and tell people what we think of their performance or judgment. Whatever the situation, think carefully before you choose your words.

Great Ideas Bosses Never Hear - Employees have a lot to say. But they rarely say them.

Great Ideas Bosses Never Hear - Employees have a lot to say. But they rarely say them. | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Companies need to listen more to employees' ideas, but employees also may have to change the way they present their ideas to be heard. What managers and bosses should do to put more good ideas to work.

 

How often do you have an idea that you want to tell your boss, or your boss's boss, or your boss's boss's boss, and actually say it? And more important, if you do say it, how often do you feel the boss really listens?

 

In too many companies, the answer to both of those questions is, at best, "hardly ever."

 

It's a shame. Leaders need to hear from employees on the front lines—those who interact with customers, who collaborate across organizational boundaries or with suppliers, who face the challenges of developing new products. Many of these employees have relevant things to say. But they don't speak up, either because they fear repercussions or they think it's pointless.

 

It's not easy opening up those lines of communication, to structure things so that good ideas can flow from bottom to top and quickly become a reality. The responsibilities rest with the employees, the bosses and the organization. More specifically:
