donhornsby's curator insight, April 24, 2013 9:17 AM

Looks like a very interesting book...

 

(From the article): Modes are a more useful way to think about helping people perform at their best than are personality types – or any “typing” system. The “type” model of behavior assumes that people stay the same, and so we should fit them in the right organizational cubbyhole.

 

In contrast, the mode model lets us understand what triggers our modes of being, the underlying beliefs and habits that hold that mode in place – and then goes on to help us change negative modes for the better.

Thought for the Week - 04/28/13 | Thinking 'I' or 'We'?

Thought for the Week - 04/28/13 | Thinking 'I' or 'We'? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say ‘I'. And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say ‘I'. They don't think ‘I'. They think ‘we'; they think ‘team'. 

They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but ‘we' gets the credit.... This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.

Question: Do you think "I" or "we" when working with or leading your team?

Leadership is about your followers, it's never about you. Drucker says it all in his quote, your team is all you have.
