A time for Post-Heroic Leadership « #hypertextual

A time for Post-Heroic Leadership « #hypertextual | Developing Leadership | Scoop.it

Being a heroic leader meant knowing it all. (…) Post-heroic leaders have the humility to recognize that the world is too complex for any one person to know very much (…) Too many managers base their confidence on their ability to generate solutions and make decisions. I try to get them to shift the basis of their confidence to the ability to facilitate decision making by asking team members what they think.

A Great Boss is Confident, But Not Really Sure - Bob Sutton - Harvard Business Review

A Great Boss is Confident, But Not Really Sure - Bob Sutton - Harvard Business Review | Developing Leadership | Scoop.it

My favorite track on Tom Petty's 2006 album Highway Companion is a song called "Saving Grace." About halfway through, he closes off a verse by singing: "You're confident but not really sure." That's a state of mind that sounds paradoxical, but at times it really is true.

It's the Leadership, Stupid - Nilofer Merchant - Harvard Business Review

It's the Leadership, Stupid - Nilofer Merchant - Harvard Business Review | Developing Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership is not an occasional task. It's a way of being. Leadership is not a job or a title, but the set of micro actions we take every day. They add up. Leaders don't just make an appearance to be able to say they were there. No, no, no. Leaders show up having dealt with their other obligations so they can be fully engaged — to participate, to co-create, to inspire. To lead.

Is Gen Y Prepared for Leadership?

Is Gen Y Prepared for Leadership? | Developing Leadership | Scoop.it

In his book, The Myth of Leadership: Creating Leaderless Organizations, Jeffrey
Nielsen makes the case for the end of leadership as we commonly recognize it and for the creation of peer-based, leaderless organizations. He discusses leadership as a myth and states that it’s an ideology society has created that justifies the significance we place on the concept of anointed management and control.

When we hear the word "delegate" in the context of best management practices there is often an assumption that the person in charge needs to delegate more, and that those not in charge want more assigned or entrusted to them.
