The Further Reaches of Adult Development: Thoughts on the 'Self-Transforming' Mind

Robert Kegan's theory of adult meaning-making has influenced theory and practice internationally across multiple disciplines.

The leaders who inspire me appreciate and ask questions, and listen to how I respond. They do not usually ask me for some specific bit of information, although I am pretty good with dates and names. They tend to ask “Why?” very often, along with “How could we do that?” about new ideas.

Creating a high-performance team is a leadership journey that starts with self-leadership. Begin by answering the question, “Why do you want to lead?” Is it because of status—having a prestigious title? To make more money? To be in control or have power? For the “perks” of management?

The Value of Vision Series - Mike Myatt - Jesse Lyn Stoner ~ Seapoint Center

The Value of Vision Series - Mike Myatt - Jesse Lyn Stoner ~ Seapoint Center | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Your customers don’t care what you put on paper, but they care immensely about whether or not a company’s vision is reflected in a fulfilled brand promise.
David Hain's insight:

"Businesses don’t have vision issues – they have leadership issues. Simply holding a leadership title/position doesn’t make a person a leader. Let me be as blunt as I can… leadership decoupled from vision is nothing short of a farce. Vision isn’t just ethereal hocus-pocus; it’s the core manifestation of an organization’s values. Vision is what gives a company its forward leaning bias and constantly propels the enterprise beyond the status quo."


Great angle on vision from Mike Myatt via Jesse Lynn Stoner's greart series on vision - all articles highly recommended!

more...
John Michel's curator insight, July 11, 2013 9:22 AM

Some leaders clearly have poor vision – their most polished skill seems to be running into brick walls. Other leaders simply possess adequate vision – they avoid the obvious speed bumps, but fail to stand out from the crowd. Then there are those leaders who possess legendary vision – the rare few who can see around corners. What you may not realize is that everyone can learn to see around corners, and it’s not as hard as you think.

“Question 1: What is the name of the official national anthem of the USA?”

 

 

Knowing the answers to questions like this makes you an asset to your pub quiz team. It probably makes you good value as a dinner party guest. It doesn't make you a great manager, or employee.

 

 

To see why, pick a set of quiz questions off the web at random. Stick the questions into Google. Only look at the first result (unless that is the page from which you got the question). Tot up how many Google gets right with its first response.  I did it just now: Google was 10 for 10.

Body language is the management of time, space, gestures, facial expression, eye contact, stance, posture, and paralinguistics – how say what say. When your body language is out of alignment with your  verbal message, most people will believe what they see and not what you say. When being candid, there are two crucial body language signals to keep in mind:

A common failing with most businesses is that the majority of Managers that are hired are usually subject-matter experts with little to none people management experience. They are usually bright, hard working people who initially struggle in the role because they are exposed to the leadership elements of the Manager’s role that they wouldn’t have had experience or training to carry out.
