The 3 Must-Dos of Great Leadership | TerryStarbucker.com | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
In the seven years I’ve been writing and talking about my concepts and lessons of personal leadership, I’ve often been asked, “What does it take to be a great leader?”. That’s a BIG question, isn’t it?

4 rules for becoming a community leader | SmartBlogs

4 rules for becoming a community leader | SmartBlogs | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Many community managers sell themselves short. While this is undoubtedly in part due to the persistent trend of many organizations to limit the role of community managers to updating their brands Facebook page or LinkedIn group, it does rather render the “manager” part of their job title redundant. Folks like that aren’t really managing anyone. All they’re doing is acting as a mouthpiece for the marketing team.
When community management is done well, however, it doesn’t just require management skills; it requires exceptional leadership skills. If your company is a true social business, then your communities will be used to deliver things that matter to your company. They’ll be delivering great customer service, collaborating on new products and maybe even helping define the future strategy of the organization.
Whether you’re looking to mobilize external stakeholders or internal employees (or both) therefore, you can see that community management is a key leadership skill.

Is That Task Important or Merely Urgent?

Is That Task Important or Merely Urgent? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
In this brief, two-minute video clip, Behance founder and CEO Scott Belsky discusses how today often trumps tomorrow and what happens when it does. He then discusses how to distinguish between the urgent and the important.

 

I wrestle with this question everyday, if not several times a day. Most of the things pinging our brain for attention our merely urgent but often trivial.

Another great resource is Stephen Covey’s book, First Things First. In Chapter 3, “The Urgency Addiction,” he provides a framework for deciding whether or not a task is urgent, important or some combination thereof. Think of it as a 2 x 2 matrix:...

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.

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?

Think Before You Criticize | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

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.
