Susan Bagyura, High Performance Coach's curator insight, August 12, 2013 10:07 AM

This article shows how important it is to fully understand what someone means when they use a word.  In this case, the writer is talking about leadership qualities, but just the word alone doesn't really tell us anything. We may think we know -- sure we know what the word means -- but what the person means when they use it can be completely different.

 

Even when someone would say that like a quality like 'decisive' for a leader, it could change from circumstance to circumstance.  This article is a reminder of the value of perception and questioning for clarity when discussing anything that's important.  Don't assume you know what someone means when they use a term or use a word or two to discuss a situation.

How to execute a new business strategy successfully

How to execute a new business strategy successfully | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
When it comes to executing strategy, many executives think coming up with plans is more important than carrying them out. Here's how to create a culture of execution

Susan Bagyura, High Performance Coach's curator insight, August 14, 2013 4:36 PM

This tendency to be incomplete costs corporations around the world billions of dollars (or whatever currency for that matter) particularly when all aspects of the business are included.  It's not a strategy if you don't execute.  It's not a mission if you don't live, breathe and hold all parts of the company to it.  It's the same with training.  It's a waste of money if there aren't follow up measures in place to make certain that people implement the new behaviors/ideas/methods into their work.

 

Many companies have consultant reports that were never executed.  What do they do, they hire another company to do a study and report their findings.  Usually it's the same findings and the cycle continues.

 

Leaders need to understand that if they don't complete or deliver to expectation, then the staff won't either.

Smart Leaders Have Protégés

Smart Leaders Have Protégés | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Just how important protégés are to a powerful person was made clear to me by this question, told to me by a Fortune 100 CEO. When choosing his direct reports, he asks: "How many blazing talents have you developed over the years and put in top positions across the company, so that if I asked you to pull off a deal that involved liaising across seven geographies and five functions, you'd have the bench strength — the people who 'owe you one' — to get it done?"

Leadership does not come from the top down; leadership comes from the inside out.

Helena Gonçalves's curator insight, August 14, 2013 7:22 AM

The leaders who inspire me know themselves well.

They have taken the time and done the work to find their true selves. They are discovering their own core values, their own deepest desires, and sharing themselves with the people around them. They connect and relate to people around the values they share. They understand that they cannot do everything well themselves, that each of us makes a significant contribution.

A good article for leaders to read today.  

 

(From the article): Being seen as trustworthy is one of the key building blocks towards becoming a great leader. If you fail in this regard, you risk being seen as a hypocrite or inauthentic. Sir John Parker, Chairman of Anglo American was an example of a highly regarded and trusted leader: “Good leaders walk the talk,” he says, “They’re consistent in their behaviour. They live out the words. I can think of no higher risk to a leader’s credibility than not living out the words.”

Trust is imperative, it is the foundation of any successful relationship both personal and professional, and trust must be earned.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, August 14, 2013 8:41 PM

Being able to ask questions requires good listening skills.  We were given two ears and one mouth for a reason...we should do twice as much listening as we do talking!  :)  In adition, "Asking contains the power to engage people. Good questions bring people together with a common purpose and goal. When I tell you the answer I have decided is correct, it reinforces that I am in control. When I ask you an honest question, it creates the opportunity for us to work together to recognize how we both answer it."

Eric Nolte's comment, August 21, 2013 3:12 PM
Another good listening skill I have been taught is to try and repeat what the speaker is saying while they are saying it. Again this helps focus you on what they are saying and not what you want to say when they are done.

Mastering Your Mindset: The silence between the notes

Mastering Your Mindset: The silence between the notes | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"It's the silence between the notes that makes the music" – Zen proverb

I'm reading The Design For Your Success NOW book recommendation for this month, "The Shift" by Wayne Dyer, right along with you all. Dyer references this ancient Zen proverb at the very beginning of the book and it really captured my attention. I had to first think about what that proverb really means and then recognized as almost a big "aha" moment the beauty and truth that is contained in such few words. Dyer comments that without the silence to interrupt the sounds, we would have no music. I never thought of music in this light and how that translates to everything we do in life.

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.

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.”
