John Michel's curator insight, April 6, 2013 9:55 AM

Every once in a while special employees come along that just really seem to get it. They drive the entire company forward in ways that were unimaginable. Advancement and reward is never an issue for these rock stars because they understand the power of cause and effect, and only a worthy company can retain them and afford them.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 6, 2013 12:29 AM

Leadership can be confusing to many. It’s just that there are so many nuances of the subject. There is no secret recipe or magic formula for becoming an effective leader, and it doesn’t happen overnight. Rather, it is a process of learning by trial and error, successes and failures.

Leadership is really about influencing people to believe in you and follow you. A leader takes people where they would never go on their own. So why do so many leaders fail? Today’s leaders often replicate poor leadership habits.

By nature, most of us resist change. We become comfortable and we fear the unknown. In order to become an effective leader and teacher you must let people know that you have a vision and they can trust you to lead them.

Consider these top four tasks of a proven leader;

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, March 4, 2013 11:29 AM

Contemplative Dialogue is a way of being that asks that we take a long and loving look at the real. Chris Argyris, Peter Senge, et.al., have given us the Ladder of Inference, and other tools, to be awake and aware and to picture the dignity and worth of each person. Our growth is gauged entirely by our capacity to love and be loved.

As Susan states in this article, "Relationships are built based on respect, growth, cooperation and communication." She also highlights the value of compassion and truth. The emotional connection, and our willingness to be present to the whole person, affirms the sacred worth and value of each and every person.

The Wrath of a Great Leader | Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Wrath of a Great Leader | Martin Luther King, Jr. | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

How Martin Luther King, Jr. wrestled with anger and what you can learn from his example.

Average leaders focus on results, and that's it. Good leaders focus also on the behaviors that will get the results. And great leaders focus, in addition, on the emotions that will drive these behaviors. 

One emotion that shapes our behavior is anger, and Martin Luther King Jr., whose 84th birthday we commemorate today, knew of the power that came packed in this emotion. King had reason enough to be provoked, time and again.

Great leaders often have a strong capacity to experience anger. It wakes them up and makes them pay attention to what is wrong in their environment, or in themselves. Without anger, they would not have the awareness or the drive to fix what is wrong. 

With me it is this anger of superficial empathy, abused love and care and
"kicking" humanity with the feet, this being indifferent towards others, this egoistic and self-centered thinking. These things make me aware who I am and what is false in our world.

10 Ways to build resilience

Make connections. Good relationships with close family members, friends, or others are important. Accepting help and support from those who care about you and will listen to you strengthens resilience. Some people find that being active in civic groups, faith-based organizations, or other local groups provides social support and can help with reclaiming hope. Assisting others in their time of need also can benefit the helper.

Avoid seeing crises as insurmountable problems. You can't change the fact that highly stressful events happen, but you can change how you interpret and respond to these events. Try looking beyond the present to how future circumstances may be a little better. Note any subtle ways in which you might already feel somewhat better as you deal with difficult situations.

Accept that change is a part of living. Certain goals may no longer be attainable as a result of adverse situations. Accepting circumstances that cannot be changed can help you focus on circumstances that you can alter.

Move toward your goals. Develop some realistic goals. Do something regularly -- even if it seems like a small accomplishment -- that enables you to move toward your goals. Instead of focusing on tasks that seem unachievable, ask yourself, "What's one thing I know I can accomplish today that helps me move in the direction I want to go?"

Take decisive actions. Act on adverse situations as much as you can. Take decisive actions, rather than detaching completely from problems and stresses and wishing they would just go away.

Look for opportunities for self-discovery. People often learn something about themselves and may find that they have grown in some respect as a result of their struggle with loss. Many people who have experienced tragedies and hardship have reported better relationships, greater sense of strength even while feeling vulnerable, increased sense of self-worth, a more developed spirituality, and heightened appreciation for life.

Nurture a positive view of yourself. Developing confidence in your ability to solve problems and trusting your instincts helps build resilience.

Keep things in perspective. Even when facing very painful events, try to consider the stressful situation in a broader context and keep a long-term perspective. Avoid blowing the event out of proportion.

Maintain a hopeful outlook. An optimistic outlook enables you to expect that good things will happen in your life. Try visualizing what you want, rather than worrying about what you fear.

Take care of yourself. Pay attention to your own needs and feelings. Engage in activities that you enjoy and find relaxing. Exercise regularly. Taking care of yourself helps to keep your mind and body primed to deal with situations that require resilience.

Additional ways of strengthening resilience may be helpful. For example, some people write about their deepest thoughts and feelings related to trauma or other stressful events in their life. Meditation and spiritual practices help some people build connections and restore hope.

The greatest acts of kindness are those done by choice, not out of seeking attention, fear or guilt. If you're doing things for others because you would feel bad if you didn't, or because you seek their permanent attention is the action really genuine then?

Only genuine and honest acts are true acts. Genuine acts come from the heart!
