The Signs of a Leader's Empathy Deficit Disorder

The Signs of a Leader's Empathy Deficit Disorder | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Think of two people who work in your organization: one a level or two below you, and the other a level above. Now imagine getting an email from each of them. Ask yourself how long it would take you to answer those emails.

Chances are the one from above you respond to right away. And the one from below you are likely to answer when you can get around to it.

That difference in response times has been used to map the hierarchy in an organization. And it reflects a more general principle: we pay more attention to those who hold more power than we do – and notice less those who hold less power.

David Hain's insight:

Empathy deficit disorder - leaders starved of feedback that helps communication - Goleman


"Leaders at higher levels are perhaps most in danger of coming down with empathy deficit disorder, for a simple reason: as you rise through the ranks fewer and fewer people are candid with you, willing to give you frank feedback on how you seem to others."

Rob Ford’s Leadership Lessons - CSR NEWS

Rob Ford’s Leadership Lessons - CSR NEWS | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Life in Rob Ford’s Toronto is at once the best of times and the worst of times, for those of us with an interest in leadership. It is the worst of times because those of us with an interest in leadership enjoy seeing it done well. But it is also — in an admittedly self-serving sense — the ‘best’ of times, because Ford’s abysmal leadership serves as an object lesson in how not to lead, and reminds everyone of just how important leadership really is.

Why Fear Doesn't Create Accountability - Laurie Cure on Leadership

Why Fear Doesn't Create Accountability - Laurie Cure on Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Many leaders believe that to create accountability among employees, those employees must fear the outcome if they don’t do what they’re told. That may mean everything from being yelled at to getting fired for not meeting goals.

But does that kind of management really work?

Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy shared more than just being leaders during critical times and the misfortune of lives cut short.
David Hain's insight:

From the article:

 

"What we need today, more than anything else, are visionary leaders who can inspire us to greatness and also ensure we get there. We need leaders who are willing to stand up, drive the debate, and commit our fellow citizens to action. We need leaders "to do this and other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard."

 

Amen!

Investing in Leadership

Investing in Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Most people can identify effective leadership when they see it, interact with it, and work with it. We know how great leaders manage crisis situations or how they inspire greatness in their teams. The great debate on whether leaders are born or made actually doesn't matter at all -- it's not about how you acquired it, it's about how you act on it that defines leadership.

Lots of resonance here - in terms of working as a leader with other teachers, and in terms of teaching and providing feedback to students. The notion of postivies plus constructive criticism and honesty aligns with formative assessment principles, too, eg Medals and Missions (Petty).

Social Intelligence Competencies Predict Transformational Leadership Style and Effectiveness

Social Intelligence Competencies Predict Transformational Leadership Style and Effectiveness | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

“Most of us know we would rather work with a leader that engages us, values us and treats us with respect. Yet some scholars still question whether or not emotional and social intelligence matters in leadership effectiveness. Over the past 10 years, numerous studies have been published and even more are continuing to emerge showing just this effect. EI and SI do matter a great deal in producing leadership effectiveness.

John Michel's curator insight, November 23, 2013 6:33 AM

Pinnacle leaders stand out from everyone else. They are a cut above, and they seem to bring success with them wherever they go. Leadership at this high level lifts the entire organization and creates an environment that benefits everyone in it, contributing to their success. Level 5 leaders often possess an influence that transcends the organization and the industry the leader works in.

Since the best way to learn is by doing, here are five jobs every potential CEO should hold, even if just for a few months. The lessons learned last a lifetime.

Why Is the Soft Stuff So Hard?

Why Is the Soft Stuff So Hard? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

We know that the brain is exquisitely tuned to social relationships, shaped by and shaping our relationships with others from birth onwards. A number of evolutionary psychologists maintain that our brain is proportionately the largest of all mammals because of the need to maintain relationships with large numbers of people. So why should relationship issues be so hard and what can the neurosciences tell us that might help?

I've always felt that the labelling of relationship management as 'soft stuff' is wholly inaccurate, as it has never been so and never will be!

 

Managing your relationships as a leader and manager has always been tough, complex and often downright hazardous! So 'soft stuff' is a complete oxymoron! However, here's a useful article to explore why is is so hard just that little bit further!

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, November 30, 2013 2:51 PM

(From the article): You may be thinking that you don’t have the time to follow these steps; you need to get some team results fast. There is a paradox here. If you start by quickly changing team structures, overall it will take more time to get better team results than if you spend more time to understand, appreciate, and respond to team members’ needs and concerns before making changes. Smart leaders practice what systems thinkers long ago learned: Go slow to go fast.
