4 Ways to Be a Leader Who Matters

4 Ways to Be a Leader Who Matters | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

4. Model more than you share.
In the over-sharing culture we live in, we're in danger of forgetting that leadership comes through leading, not by telling.

 

Seeing it isn't doing it. Sharing it isn't doing it. Only doing it is doing it.

 

 

Try this: Next time you see a leadership need in your organization--whether it's about how people should be treated (customers, clients or employees); how you communicate internally or externally; or what your long-term mission, vision or values are--try modeling the change you want to see without the use of emails, memos or powerpoint presentations.

David Hain's insight:

Contentment breeds sccess, not the other way round. We all have to make a decision about whether to stop striving for the next level (rank, money, status, etc) and enjoy where we are in the hope (with some research back-up) that success will follow.

ThinDifference's curator insight, January 14, 2013 7:17 AM

Interesting, diverse stats:

 

"At this writing, Gallup also reports that nearly 60 percent all Americans today feel happy without a lot of stress or worry. On the other hand, according to the  Center for Disease Control, about 4 out of 10 Americans have not    discovered a satisfying life purpose. Forty percent either do not think their lives have a clear sense of purpose or are neutral about whether their lives    have purpose. Nearly a quarter of Americans feel neutral or do not have a strong sense of what makes their lives meaningful."

 

Pursuing purpose provides a better foundation on which happiness can be found.... we may be pursing the wrong thing.

I came across this blog post and it rang true for me in terms of how I violate some very basic elements of success - namely taking care of self, taking care of family, and using others as a benchmark to compare my success.


Stop the nonsense - start having stupiphanies (one of my new favorite words) and get a little introspective about what you're doing and why!

Debunking the Myths of the First 100 Days For New CEOs

Debunking the Myths of the First 100 Days For New CEOs | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

It’s tough at the top, and getting tougher. CEOs today have to operate in an unprecedentedly intricate and intense business environment, and newly installed CEOs are particularly hard-pressed. At any one time, 14 to 15 percent of CEOs are in their first year of office, and they face a challenging initiation.

A New-Look 100-Day Plan for a New CEO

 

Confronted not just by the novelties but also by the ambiguities of the role they are stepping into, newly installed CEOs will respond in diverse ways. Some will view their debut as a balancing act. Others, undaunted, will view it as an impetus for bold, disruptive moves.

John - not sure if's as much an issue about the Peter Principle - my perspective is that most companies don't prepare managers and executives to lead people. They assume if someone has the title, they must be a good manager (big time myth).
John Wade: Coach; consultant; mentor's comment, January 22, 2013 6:09 PM
I agree with you Barry - and that's why I point to The Leadership Principle book. The chapters I recommend talk to exactly why many new managers fail - because they are failed by their bosses in terms of contextualising their new role. To a degree one would, though, expect capable people to realise that a new title and different responsibilities

Management Is (Still) Not Leadership

Management Is (Still) Not Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Insight from John Kotter about the difference between leadership and management.

 

The mistakes people make on the issue are threefold:

 

Mistake #1: People use the terms "management" and "leadership" interchangeably. This shows that they don't see the crucial difference between the two and the vital functions that each role plays.

 

Mistake #2: People use the term "leadership" to refer to the people at the very top of hierarchies. They then call the people in the layers below them in the organization "management." And then all the rest are workers, specialists, and individual contributors. This is also a mistake and very misleading.

 

Mistake #3: People often think of "leadership" in terms of personality characteristics, usually as something they call charisma. Since few people have great charisma, this leads logically to the conclusion that few people can provide leadership, which gets us into increasing trouble.
