Leaders in search of followership | Mannaz.com | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

In a conversation with Barbara Kellerman journalist Kenneth Mikkelsen explores why leadership is so hard to exercise today. This is a must read for everone interested in leadership and management trends. The article is featured in Mannaz' International Newsletter. 

 

The interview with Barbara Kellerman relates to her latest book: "The End of Leadership."

 

Barbara raises the important question: Why has the leadership industry, for all its apparent successes, failed on so many levels? Why do incompetence and intemperance continue rampant? Why are ethics so elusive? Why is teaching leading full of “flaws”? Why has it proved so hard to build a body of knowledge? Why are our leaders so widely disdained—and why is our trust in leaders of every stripe at a leaden low?

 

Barbara has strong opinions about the leadership industry. She doesn't believe that becomming a leader is a quick fix that can be learned from a seven-step guide written by former CEOs or short and expensive leadership courses.

A challenge to all of us from a simple quotation from Ralph Waldo Emerson...

 

Emerson is one of the most quoted guys around, and this one is one of my favorites. Consider this a gentle nudge or a kick in the seat of the pants, depending on how you answer the questions that follow.

 

“We are always getting ready to live, but never living.”

- Ralph Waldo Emerson, essayist

 

Questions to Ponder

 

- Am I living, right now?

 

- If not, what am I waiting for?

 

- What can I do right now to stop waiting?

Ethics and competence will pave you the way for success | Noozmag

Ethics and competence will pave you the way for success | Noozmag | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

A great problem in business is that people lack the necessary business ethics. They proclaim integrity and authenticity and demand it from others. But at the same time, ironically, studies indicate that the majority of people don’t always act with this integrity they request from others.

+John Maxwell says in the preface of his book “Ethics 101“:

“There’s no such thing as business ethics – there’s only ethics.
People try to use one set of ethics for their professional life, another for their spiritual life, and still another at home with their family. That gets them into trouble. Ethics is ethics. If you desire to be ethical, you live it by one standard across the board.”

Decisions That Destroy A Leader’s Legacy

Decisions That Destroy A Leader’s Legacy | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

John Maxwell once commented on the time it typically takes to develop your leadership. The first few years in the organization is spent building relationships and showing your worth by the production you do. From years 5 to 7, you begin to see real traction as people recognize your leadership skill and contributions.

 

After year seven, you begin to see results from your reputation in the community. This is why, he points out, if you continually move – from one job to another, from one place to another – you will have difficulty experiencing the larger returns on your leadership. They just don’t come quickly. When you do stick it out, through the good and the bad over the years, you can enjoy some great rewards as a leader.

 

Amazingly, all those years of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice for your vision, can be wiped out so much quicker than you created it. A legacy of great achievement can be removed from the public memory because of a gross violation of leadership ethics.

Three Ways Leaders Make Emotional Connections

Three Ways Leaders Make Emotional Connections | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Leadership has everything to do with how you relate to others and the quality and texture of those relationships. The higher up you go in an organization, the less important your technical skills become and the more your interpersonal skills matter. I've seen this confirmed in my work with hundreds of leaders and in reviews of 360-degree feedback data on thousands more.

 

The ability to make an emotional connection is so often misunderstood because it's not about being emotional or showing emotion. It's about making a human connection — one person to another.
