Not all entrepreneurs are born leaders. Some may just be people with great ideas who were thrust into leadership positions when they launched their own company. But people who aren’t extroverts can still be strong leaders.

Nine Things Successful People Do Differently - Heidi Grant Halvorson

Nine Things Successful People Do Differently - Heidi Grant Halvorson | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

   Why have you been so successful in reaching some of your goals, but not others? It turns out that even brilliant, highly accomplished people are pretty lousy when it comes to understanding why they succeed or fail. The intuitive answer — that you are born predisposed to certain talents and lacking in others — is really just one small piece of the puzzle. In fact, decades of research on achievement suggests that successful people reach their goals not simply because of who they are, but more often because of what they do.

 

1. Get specific.

2. Seize the moment to act on your goals.

3. Know exactly how far you have left to go.

4. Be a realistic optimist.

5. Focus on getting better, rather than being good.

6. Have grit.

7. Build your willpower muscle.

8. Don't tempt fate.

9. Focus on what you will do, not what you won't do.

How to Find Your Purpose and Do What You Love

How to Find Your Purpose and Do What You Love | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Why prestige is the enemy of passion, or how to master the balance of setting boundaries and making friends.

 

“Find something more important than you are,” philosopher Dan Dennett once said in discussing the secret of happiness,“and dedicate your life to it.” But how, exactly, do we find that?

 

Surely, it isn’t by luck. I myself am a firm believer in the power of curiosity and choice as the engine of fulfillment, but precisely how you arrive at your true calling is an intricate and highly individual dance of discovery.

 

Still, there are certain factors — certain choices — that make it easier. Gathered here are insights from seven thinkers who have contemplated the art-science of making your life’s calling a living.

The top 5 competenties chosen in Leadership Insights Survey 2012 !

The top 5 competenties chosen in Leadership Insights Survey 2012 ! | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

The table shows the five competencies most often chosen by these respondents for
youth entering the workforce today and those important 20 years ago.

By far, in terms of competencies needed today, self-motivation/discipline and effective communication skills were most frequently picked, followed by learning agility, self-awareness, and adaptability.

Interestingly enough, when looking back 20 years ago, self-motivation/discipline and effective communication were still among the top five seen by this group as most important. However, the highest frequency choice was technical mastery – a competency not at all among the top five competencies chosen as important today.

 

Respondents of CCL Leadership Insights 2012
We received responses from 462 individuals from all sectors of the economy, at all  organizational levels and across the age range. Fifty-seven percent of respondents were male
and 43% female. The majority of respondents (52%) were between 34 and 49 years
old while 36% were age 50-64. Thirty-seven percent work in organizations with fewer
than 500 employees, while 27% were from organizations with over 10,000. The majority
of respondents (53%) work in the corporate sector, although a sizeable number were from
public or nonprofit-sector organizations (10%education, 9% government, 10% nonprofit).
Finally, most respondents were in managerial roles (48% had manager or director titles,
14% VP or EVP, 11% C-level). The vast majority(72%) were from the United States.

10 Keys to Real Entrepreneur Mentoring Satisfaction

Every entrepreneur can learn from a mentor, no matter how confident or successful they have been to date. Even one of the richest, Bill Gates, still values his friend Warren Buffett as his mentor. Yet these relationships require special efforts on both sides to be productive and satisfying. Mentoring is not as simple as one person giving the other all the right answers.

Other people can’t read your mental state as well as you think. Just the same is true of written communication. When you write an email it seems perfectly obvious to you what you meant but language is open to interpretation and sometimes the meaning gets twisted or lost in the journey from one mind to the next.
