The 4 Pillars Of Stable Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Stable leaders model a level of constancy and consistency that individuals, teams, and organizations so desperately need, but often find missing.

A lack of stability harms culture, stifles productivity, erodes trust, and makes it extremely difficult to retain top talent. Instability can also be a harbinger of bigger problems. The passing of time will usually reveal unstable leaders also tend to be lacking in several other areas.

Article addresses impact of negative self-talk and provides some ideas on how to turn negative into positive self-talk. Remember, negative thoughts produce negative actions so we have to take every thought captive.
John Michel's curator insight, June 30, 2013 12:48 AM

It’s time to take control of the programming of negative automatic self-talk. Let your brain search its files for a more positive, constructive, and useful answer.

Darlene Karpaski's comment, July 1, 2013 7:36 PM
Being able to choose something new outside of past programming means being able to see with new eyes and hear with new ears. Changing around some of the people, places and things exposes you to different aspects of self that lie just below the surface of doing things the same way over and over.

Security Comes From Who You Are, Not What You Have.

Security Comes From Who You Are, Not What You Have. | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Many people find their security in the things that they have. No problem with that unless your identity and sense of security are connected to that wealth.
David Hain's insight:

'Life happens and we all know that what we have can disappear overnight.  So where do we really find security?  I believe we find it within.  True security comes from knowing that outward circumstances will not control the world you live in.'

The power of self-compassion - Harvard Health Publications

The power of self-compassion - Harvard Health Publications | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Harvard psychologist Christopher Germer, in his book The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion, suggests that there are five ways to bring self-compassion into your life: via physical, mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual methods. He and other experts have proposed a variety of ways to foster self-compassion. Here are a few:

 

Comfort your body. Eat something healthy. Lie down and rest your body. Massage your own neck, feet, or hands. Take a walk. Anything you can do to improve how you feel physically gives you a dose of self-compassion.

 

Write a letter to yourself. Describe a situation that caused you to feel pain (a breakup with a lover, a job loss, a poorly received presentation). Write a letter to yourself describing the situation without blaming anyone. Acknowledge your feelings.

 

Give yourself encouragement. If something bad or painful happens to you, think of what you would say to a good friend if the same thing happened to him or her. Direct these compassionate responses toward yourself.

 

Practice mindfulness. This is the nonjudgmental observation of your own thoughts, feelings, and actions, without trying to suppress or deny them. When you look in the mirror and don't like what you see, accept the bad with the good with a compassionate attitude.

Forgiving and nurturing yourself can set the stage for better health, relationships, and general well-being. Self-compassion yields a number of benefits, including lower levels of anxiety and depression. Self-compassionate people recognize when they are suffering and are kind to themselves at these times, which reduces their anxiety and related depression.

Leaders don't always finish well or finish what they start. Leadership sustainability isn't easy. Given the fact that we all know leaders that haven't finished well, it's surprising how many of us have no plan in place to consciously and specifically improve our leadership abilities. Most of the time we wing it.

Why Perfectionists Are Often the Biggest Failures

Why Perfectionists Are Often the Biggest Failures | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

A few years ago on a college campus, a ceramics professor decided to try an experiment on one of his classes. At the start of the semester he divided the class into two groups and explained that each group would be graded differently.

Group 1 would be graded on the total number of pots they could create throughout the semester, with a minor importance given to quality.

Group 2 would be graded on just one pot. They had all semester to work on just one pot so they better make it impressive.

At the end of the semester, the students all turned in their work for grading. To the professor’s amusement, the 5 highest quality pots all came from the group who was focused on quantity over quality. In fact, most of the pots from Group 2 were terrible. They just looked like over-worked lumps of hollowed out clay.

Why did this happen?

If you were able to maintain a level of self-confidence that no circumstance could shake, what would you be doing differently?  Just imagine the things you would accomplish if you were confident that you COULD.

This kind of confidence comes from positive self-imaging, and it is something that you can proactively build for yourself.  It doesn’t happen while you wait passively.  When you leave it up to external factors, you build your self-confidence on sandy ground.  What you need is a rock-solid foundation, and this only comes from building it from within.

Empathy Sells

Empathy Sells | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

So if resonant work starts with empathy, then it follows that marketers themselves must be empathic. Projecting perspectives requires first understanding them. Roman Krznaric, in his fantastic animated video on empathy, gives the example of George Orwell (at minute 3:00) who, before writing Down and Out in Paris and London, immersed himself in East London’s street life, living among those on the social margins. He shared in their experiences, getting into the gritty details of the poor’s worldviews so that he could in turn authentically write about them.
