Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are

Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are | education | Scoop.it

As chairman of the Washington Speakers Bureau, Bernie Swain posed one simple question to 100 of the eminent people that his company represents. People like Madeleine Albright, Tom Brokaw, Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw and Condoleezza Rice were asked to identify the one person, event, or influence that made them who they are as a leader and a person.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 7, 3:35 PM

The overriding lessons from Bernie Swain's questioning is that successful leaders are self-aware. They have an inner voice and pay attention to it. They understand the defining moments of their lives and thereby better understand their own strengths, biases, and weaknesses as leaders.

The Management Thinker We Should Never Have Forgotten | education | Scoop.it

W. Edwards Deming believed that we can improve worker performance only when we improve the entire system they work within. And he believed that managers wrongly apply incentive pay plans, forced rankings, and all sorts of carrots and sticks to create the illusionof control without solving root performance problems.

This is a concept that I don't understand why there isn't more remote work out there, and why more companies out there aren't embracing it. We have the technology, so why isn't it embraced more? This would provoke more collaboration and efforts to work together, as well as allow the best talent to be hired rather than who is close enough but willing to make the commute. For much of the tech community world, this would be an ideal situation. What do you think? Include your comments below. --TechCommGeekMom

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, April 26, 10:48 AM
This is an excellent article for anyone who is job searching--whether it's in tech comm, e-learning, or digital marketing. 

Having sent out G-d knows how many resumes in my lifetime (I know Princeton University alone has received over 100 from me over time, so I've generally given up on them), and been on dozens of interviews to know that what the author of this article, Liz Ryan, says is true. Sure, everyone will try to stretch the truth a little bit to make themselves better, but there are ways to say, "Yeah, I'm not as strong in that but I can learn quickly," in a way that isn't lying, but still expresses that more carefully. Additionally, this is one reason that volunteering, or talking about topics that interest you--but you aren't doing--in a blog is helpful. I know that while I haven't been an instructional designer, anyone who's read my blog knows that I have a decent foundation in instructional design principles, and I know much about the tools and lingo used in the field. So for me to apply to an e-learning or m-learning job is not that far-fetched. A stretch, sometimes, but nothing more than that. Sometimes recruiters have contacted me with something that I think is way off target, but I'll look at it a second time, and think, "Hmm...maybe I can do this after all."

As Liz Ryan said in the article, it's a two-way street as well. Employers are always working to ensure that their brand evokes something positive, even when things aren't going well, because they want to retain good talent.

The Best Leaders Are Constant Learners

The Best Leaders Are Constant Learners | education | Scoop.it

Reinvention and relevance in the 21st century instead draw on our ability to adjust our way of thinking, learning, doing and being. Leaders must get comfortable with living in a state of continually becoming, a perpetual beta mode. Leaders that stay on top of society’s changes do so by being receptive and able to learn.

Steve Holmes's curator insight, June 20, 10:59 AM
Every book, class, or seminar is an opportunity to learn.  Every new sale, blown presentation or passed over promotion is an opportunity to learn.  Every win and every loss is an opportunity to learn.  Every interaction with your employees, employer or clients is an opportunity to learn.  My point is we are surrounded by an abundance of resources and opportunities to help us learn and as Leaders ( at the top, bottom or middle of the org chart) we should leverage every source.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, October 9, 2015 1:04 PM
As I've written about mobile and memory and done presentations/workshops that relate to this topic, I would argue that this is just an evolutionary step. There is too much data on the Internet for a human to fully absorb, so steps are made to capture the knowledge the best way available. Doing a proper search takes some skill to find the right data, after all. Since time began, Walter Ong would argue, we've had to learn things in small pieces, and technology--whether it was repetitive storytelling, songs, or writing--has weakened the human mind.

In an age of automation, CEOs and their top teams will need to gain an almost architectural sense of how machines and people work together side by side, each making the other more productive and effective, while never losing sight of their employees’ humanity. They will have to look beyond the architecture of mechanical “hard” structures to include the orchestration of complex social systems as well.
