Failure: The Competitive Advantage

Failure: The Competitive Advantage | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
In recent months I’ve talked at different times with two leaders, each facing the loss of his job because of a corporate merger or acquisition. Although their situations were the same, their responses could not have been more different.

John Michel's curator insight, June 18, 2013 3:04 PM

Each time we take a risk and it fails we have another opportunity to begin again.

Each time we face a difficulty we can stand up and try again.

Each time we plan and fail and try again, we are building inner resources.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 18, 2013 7:27 PM

Failure is a part of success.

Dick Cheuk's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:34 PM

Yes, failure is part of success only when we learn the lesson and change ourselves. However, too many organisations either punish failure instead of learning from it, or they "learnt" from it but fall short of making changes.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 17, 2013 6:48 PM

Thanks to John, David and Wise Leader!  Great scoop.

 

From the article:

 

Develop Awareness– Great leaders are self aware, organizationally aware, culturally aware, contextually aware, and emotionally aware. They value listening, engaging, observing, and learning over pontificating. They value sensitivity over insensitivity and humility over hubris. Leaders who come across as if they know everything haven’t fooled anyone – except themselves.

 
Doris Palomino's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:24 AM

The 5 key transitions the author proposes make you think about how great human beings we expect great leaders to be: (1) find purpose, (2) people first, (3) develop awareness, (4) shun complexity, and (5) get personal. And I could not agree more about the fact how many people assume the responsability to lead but only a few can do it well: "Average leaders spend time scaling processes, systems, and models – great leaders focus on scaling leadership".

7 Leadership Lessons Inspired By Nelson Mandela

7 Leadership Lessons Inspired By Nelson Mandela | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"Every time I think of Nelson Mandela, the great South African leader, the first thought in my mind is we need more like him. We are ready and in serious need of leaders to inspire us and motivate us with action as much as words.

Leadership is hard to define, mostly because it means different things to different people. We know it requires knowledge, strength and compassion. We expect leaders to be fair, to share our values and provide direction. That to me is what leaders like Mr. Mandela represent."

He will leave us some day sooner rather than later - but what a legacy!

Being and doing are not at odds

Being and doing are not at odds | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"

Every time I write something on the topic of personal productivity, a few people suggest that maybe doing more isn’t appropriate at all.

 

As a friend of mine suggested on the Facebook page, Western society has an obsession with productivity. We grow up being taught that we want to “do well” but we’re not often taught explicitly what that means.

Success is a vague word, and in the absence of a meaningful definition it seems to refer to little more than having an above average income and a lot of phone calls to return."

Annette Swann's curator insight, June 17, 2013 6:35 AM

An interesting perspective, since I often hear people say we need to be 'human beings' not 'human doings' - my favorite line is "Personal productivity doesn’t need to be at odds with mindfulness. Being doesn’t need to be separate from doing... Doing the work that serves your real values improves the present reality of your life"

The NEW Leader » Just Coach It-The 3Q Edge | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

The New Leader Knows that Surviving and Thriving Means Learning and Relearning
In a rapidly changing world, in a global marketplace where the sheer velocity of change, challenges, competition and opportunities before us is unprecedented; our ability to embrace individual and collective learning, relearning, doing and re-doing is the linchpin that can help us use what is to create and recreate what can be.  All organizations, small and large need to get a grip on what is and what can be.  Inertia, bureaucratic fumbling, confused messages, thwarted communication and the political morass of behaviors that impede communication, collaboration must be addressed and changed.  Change is not a threat, it is our greatest hope.  Leading forward means changing forward, and doing so means embracing our individual and collective potential to learn, re-learn.  A small perceptual shift in how we see the problems or challenges we face can be the genesis for our greatest potential and success.
