Jim Collins has a clear understanding of what it takes to be a successful leader. His book Good to Great was inspiring and I would recommend his book to anyone in a leadership position.

Gabrielle Branstetter's insight:

This blog post provides an example of why strengths based management works so well in business. I like the analogy of the two employees being the fish and the monkey. Don't ask a fish to climb trees and don't ask a monkey to swim. This concept seems simple but when a manager pays little attention to the strengths of their employees they assign job duties incorrectly and often.

Does it pay to know your type?

Does it pay to know your type? | Community Education | Scoop.it
Corporate America, the government and universities think so. They spend millions of dollars each year giving workers and students the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test to steer training programs and career goals.

Gabrielle Branstetter's insight:

In my experience it is helpful to know your type but it is more helpful to know the type of your co-workers. You will develop a better understanding of why people do things a certain way. This understanding can improve your working relationships, improve morale and increase productivity. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a test that I have taken and found to be accurate. I have also taken the StrengthsQuest Quiz which I am seriously considering using for a leadership class I want to teach in the Fall 2013 semester.

I love the info graphic for this article. Myers-Briggs is a great test for students to take to learn more about themselves and others.

The average supervisor has been managing for 10 years before he gets any training.

Via Cosmina Coman
Gabrielle Branstetter's insight:

This article is interesting and points out that many employees are placed in leadership roles within an organization having little to no leadership training.  What are we waiting for? Even 3rd and 4th grade students are able to grasp many of the concepts being taught to experienced leaders today.

Gabrielle Branstetter's insight:

I agree with the notion of strengths based leadership. This video is inspiring, I couldn't agree more with Mr. Busteed in regards to the best educators are those who build relationships with students and want to find out what makes each student tick.
