Leadership, Trust & Emotional Capital: What's Love Got To Do With It?

Leadership, Trust & Emotional Capital: What's Love Got To Do With It? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

John Michel's curator insight, August 22, 2013 1:10 PM

Love in the workplace can be as simple as setting aside time to engage in deep listening. It means setting aside time where there are no interruptions and listening to what the other person has to say, without interruption and without jumping in with whatever you want to say. It involves being empathetic and listening beyond the words.

Service Design Soft Skill Builder: Empathy - Adaptive Path

Service Design Soft Skill Builder: Empathy - Adaptive Path | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

I have been reflecting on my own empathy lately and exploring how it can be cultivated. Below are four methods that I or others have found help build and strengthen empathy. I hope you will try some of these and report back if they have made a difference in your personal practice and your organization's success.

 

1. Read stories which emotionally transport you
I often cite my humanities training in general and my BA in English Literature specifically as playing the most crucial role in the development of my personal practice. I've been pleased to see some research recently that puts some data behind what my gut has been telling me. It turns out, reading fiction builds empathetic skill...

 

2. Practice listening...
Empathic listening is the synthesis of relaxation, focus, and the desire to learn. Frequent and consistent empathic listening is a skill very few people master. My advice: carve out a little time each day to build your fundamentals...


3. Take an improv class...

“When it comes down to it, [improv] is mostly about building trust among a group of performers. Trust grows through acknowledging the discomfort, establishing and enforcing ground rules, and engaging in an activity together…. Most of improv rehearsal time focuses on creating trust–helping individuals become more focused and empathetic, and providing the group members opportunities to build rapport… In this context, empathy, the capability to understand, identify with, and care for others [is critical to increase trust].”

 

4. Be an empathic adventurist...

Being an empathic adventurist is about deliberately getting out of your daily haunts, out of your comfort zone, and into the lives of others that broaden and deepen your understanding of people and the way they look at the world....

They did learn the buzzwords, and they know what is in the air in the mainstream management literature, that's for sure... they are stars and, of course, visionaries... they say, leading and managing are different but they are helluva good managers as well about their closed circle and that's management about, it's pretty sure too... However, it would be very interesting to have also a 360 review about their activities to see more clearly...:-)))

David Hain's insight:

Article quote:

 

But therein lies the final lesson that’s important not just for leaders, but for everyone to take hold of – that if we truly want to be inspired by the everyday encounters we have with those around us, we need to open ourselves to that discovery; to not only to see things in a whole new light, but to commit ourselves to living up to a higher standard.

 

In a recent column, Steve Denning states that we’re in the midst of a “golden age of management”, one that “seeks to inspire both those who do work and those for whom work is done. It aspires to uplift the human spirit and unleash the creativity latent in every human being while also achieving more disciplined execution than traditional management.”

 

 

Excellent!

I agree Ivon, so many important nuggets in this article. I particularly like: If you’re afraid of failing, you won’t get very far,” Jobs once said. “Most people never pick up the phone and call. Most people never ask, and that’s what separates the people who do things from the people who just dream about them."

Bob Burg, the author of the Go-Giver (http://tinyurl.com/cuwkdoc) is an inspiration.  This book actually made me feel like God was talking to me through the story.  I was going through an extremely difficult time and the universal lesson of giving first, before expecting to receive, was the most influential reminder I could have gotten at that time.  


Since then, my life has improved consistently.  Not only do I look to GIVE first, I am also OPEN to receiving!  


This is a great article that showcases Bob's philosophy and his ongoing work.  


Thank you Bob Burg!!!

A very interesting article on thought leadership. Could you check off any of these as describing yourself?


Do you aspire to be a thought leader?


Do you want to be seen within your niche as the "go-to" person, the "expert", the source of trusted information?


Would you like your clients and prospects to use YOU as their benchmark for thought leadership within your niche or industry?


What are you doing right now to establish yourself as THE thought-leader who drives conversations around leading issues in your niche? Do you abdicate this role to your peers or do you aggressively seek it for yourself?


If you do want to become a thought leader, what is your specific written plan for achieving it?
