Those leaders who listen more are often the type of people that others like to follow because they feel that the leader is interested in them and what they have to say.

 

A quiet leader is one who values his own strengths but also has the ability to see the world as others do for one simple reason. They listen. Knowing how another things is essential to persuasion.

The article itself is an interesting read. The comments, however, give another real life look at the world of work.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 6, 2013 9:48 AM

(From article): Should you stay or go? If your health, personal life, and capacity to perform your work is suffering, seriously consider your future. Is the bully likely to leave? Can you transfer, job exchange, or remove yourself from the bully’s trajectory?

 

Don’t shrug off the pain, humiliation, and loss of job satisfaction that a bully can cause. If all else fails, look for another job. Your health and happiness are more important than “sticking it out.”

The Five Most Inspirational Speeches Of Our Time That Will Be Sure To Motivate You

The Five Most Inspirational Speeches Of Our Time That Will Be Sure To Motivate You | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Inspiration is a stimulating feeling that we seek to motivate us, to continue pressing forward through hardships and to find meaning amidst chaos. What inspires us is sometimes found in the rarest of forms. It is sometimes in plain sight. It is often stumbled upon without intention, and it is sometimes graciously handed to us in the form of wise words, spoken by experienced and influential minds.

 

For those who are feeling aimlessly lost in the journey to find themselves, those who are feeling stuck under the darkest clouds waiting for a ray of sunshine and those who simply need a dose of encouragement, heed these words of wisdom.

 

From some of the most gifted minds to the greatest influencers of our generation; from currently eminent leaders to those illustrious leaders who made a difference and left us too soon, here are some of the most inspirational speeches of our time in chronological order.

As I indicated in my post "What Inspires You?", I think inspirational and motivational speeches are wonderful for getting you moving again when you are stuck, giving you a kick in the butt when you are feeling sorry for yourself, or just reminding you of how great you really are. Here are five amazing speeches I will be adding to my Inspiration Library.

With over 35 years experience in the field, Jay highlights the need to measure EQ in order to really be successful and to drive meaningful, lasting, positive change in people.  And measuring from an intra- and interpersonal intelligence perspective gives you the complete picture. As Jay states, "In a world of upside-down thinking on many subjects, perspectives and issues, learning how to realistically evaluate our own EQ helps to keep us right-side up and balanced in our approach to ourselves, others and our work."

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's curator insight, August 6, 2013 7:48 AM

Thank you Bobby for sharing this article with us!

 

I especially agree with the statement"  What we can’t measure we can’t improve."

 

Being intelligent about our emotions is excellent; however, we do have to know what success looks like.  Then we have to know how to measure success.

 

Make it a great day!

Self-Empathy

Self-Empathy
At times our behaviors keep us from meeting our greatest needs. Say longing for deep connection with others, but afraid of it, so people get pushed away. Then telling yourself no one likes you. Often resulting in depression, loneliness, and self-criticism.

The process of self-empathy can help on clarity about what seems truly wanted and help to behave in ways more likely to meet our shared needs. Self-empathy also encourages focus on desires, rather than on what may seem wrong with others or the self.

Successful leadership is a by-product of those resources that you are able to access throughout the course of your career.   Resources that are not given to you, but rather earned as a result of hard work, sacrifices, respect from your peers and career coaches, and the failures that taught you lessons along the way.
