Why CEOs Need Expanded Awareness | ChiefExecutive.net | Chief Executive Magazine | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

The greatest advantage that a chief executive can attain is a condition of Expanded Awareness (EA). A recent Fortune magazine cover bears the image of legacy leaders whose unique vantage point and prescient insights were not only demonstrated in stellar shareholder returns, but in altering human behavior as well. These great EA visionaries created a linear innovation—a combination of things that already existed but bundled in a manner that added new value in a new way—and in the process shifted industrial patterns and consumer behavior. This exclusive hall of fame includes technical giants, financial oracles, and legendary inventors and creators. Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “A mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” The same can be said for the boardroom. - See more at: http://chiefexecutive.net/why-ceos-need-expanded-awareness#sthash.qfYVJOtb.dpuf

11 Ways That Active Listening Can Help Your Relationships

11 Ways That Active Listening Can Help Your Relationships | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Put active listening together with empathy to improve your relationships ..

 

To become an effective communicator, you need to learn to listen just as much as you need to learn to speak. Unfortunately, most people focus more on the speaking than they do on the listening. Whether in a one-on-one conversation or a group meeting or classroom, focusing on what others are saying allows you to present yourself more effectively. When you listen correctly, you also learn more.

 

Being an actively empathic listener means, then, that you not only make sure you're actively paying attention but that you let the speaker you know you are. You ask questions when you're not clear on what the other person is communicating, you try to infer what the person is feeling, and you let the person know that you remember what he or she actually said.

Why Our Thoughts Are Not Real

Why Our Thoughts Are Not Real | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

One physical world, but billions of different internal worlds.  Did you ever realize that everything going on in your mind -- every thought, feeling, sensation, everything you are aware of -- is in fact happening only in your private internal world? Your thoughts appear only to you, and are not being heard by anyone else whatsoever.

Kudos's curator insight, August 25, 2013 7:11 PM

Managing people is not an exact science. Every new person adds a new dimension to how a group and company works and functions. You should try to hire the best people for the role but people who are also the best fit will allow you to try and create a chemistry that can lead to success. In the end, process is the only thing you can control in a business. Execution, enthusiam and culture are vairables that you can try to effect with an operating philosophy and the right tools. Even being quick to promote people out of the comany that are a negaivie effect on chemistry and culture is also a good idea.

 

Anyone that tells you that their is one sure fire way to create success is just telling you what worked for them at that moment in time with the poeple they had. It can be motivtaing and help creaet short burts of enthusiam. It does not mean it is a sure fire way to repeat that same success. It comes back to operating philosophy, values and processes. It is more of a road map then a exact diretions. I beleive in this road map.

 

Give your team a vision 

Recruit well

Respect your players

Give them opportunities to succeed

Celerbate success

Show you value thier contributions 

and give your team a goals and hold them accountable

 

These are the things that all good coaches do in sports and the ones that follow this process alwasy seem to have winning records. It works for buiness too. It is not an exact science but it does seem to produce better then average results.

Talenting: Framework and Metaphors for a New Processual Approach to Talent Management

Talenting: Framework and Metaphors for a New Processual Approach to Talent Management | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Although the necessity for attracting, retaining, and motivating talent is an old challenge for all competitive organisations, only in the last decade has this theme been getting increased attention as a field of study. The objective of this article is to introduce a new concept of ‘Talenting’ in its multifaceted framework composed of the 7 H-metaphors: Hiring, Health, Happiness, Hygiene, Head, Heart and Hand. Very different from the traditional models of Talent Management, it is argued that focusing on the process rather than exclusively on the person can facilitate the making of a consistent and sustainable high achiever.

We cannot fully digest what our actions mean to others in the rapid pace of our world. And as a leader, the consequences are adding up. Do you know what that holds for you and those you lead?
