Executive Coaching: The Best Decision You Can Make as a Leader  

Executive Coaching: The Best Decision You Can Make as a Leader   | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it

There is a lot of debate and conversation surrounding the question of what makes an effective executive. Executives are deeply knowledgeable about all aspects of their business, they work to create value and deliver results. They are subject matter experts, know their industry thoroughly and make difficult business decisions on a regular basis. On top of this, executives need to form trusting relationships with people both inside and outside of their organization. This is a lot of responsibility for one person to take on, and with so few people to shoulder the burden, it’s understandable why so many CEOs feel lonely, overwhelmed, and isolated.

It can certainly be lonely at C-suite, but nobody should get to such a position that they can’t ask for help and guidance. This is why one source has declared that the smartest business move an executive can ever make is to hire an executive coach. In fact, a number of COOs and CEOs have come forward to discuss their use of executive coaches, explaining the advantages it has offered them.

But are executive coaches really worth the money? What benefits do they offer and how can your day-to-day work and home life improve as a result?

Why Taking Responsibility Is Always the Best Leadership Choice

Why Taking Responsibility Is Always the Best Leadership Choice | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
The main goal of choosing to take ownership of the issue to begin with was ensuring everybody could get back to work and resume pre-crisis levels of productivity and pride in their jobs. Don’t allow an issue to define you, or the organization. Everybody has lots to do – especially you. While you have to learn from your mistakes, avoid comparing every situation to the crises of yesterday. Stop yourself from reminding everybody constantly of what has already transpired. The issue occurred. You took responsibility for it, held people accountable and, with everybody’s help, you fixed it. You pledged not to make the same mistake again. It’s in your rearview. Keep it there. And get back to the exciting work of creating enduring value for all your stakeholders.

The next time you’re in the midst of a crisis, don’t try to deflect, or underestimate people, or nitpick about whose fault it was. Choose to take responsibility as the leader. Own the problem, take a hard-nosed approach, hold people accountable, present a solution, get to work, and don’t make the same mistake twice. You’ll stave off disaster, fix problems faster, build trust, and get better results.

#Leadership 4 Practices That Will Make You a More Powerful & Trusted Leader

#Leadership 4 Practices That Will Make You a More Powerful & Trusted Leader | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it

Power. The word itself evokes a reaction. What thoughts or feelings do you have when you think of power? Perhaps you picture an organizational chart where the boxes at the top are imbued with more power than those below. Maybe you imagine an iron fist, representative of a person who rules over others with absolute authority. Or perhaps the word power conjures up feelings of nervousness, anxiety, or fear, based on negative experiences you’ve had in the past. On the flip side, maybe the word power emboldens you with excitement, energy, or drive to exert your influence on people and circumstances in your life.

Power is a dynamic present in all of our relationships and it’s one we need to properly manage to help our relationships develop to their fullest potential. In and of itself, power is amoral; it’s neither good or bad. The way we use power is what determines its value.

But what is power? How do we get it? And once we have it, how do we keep it?

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

The founding father of self-leadership, Charles Manz, defines self-leadership as “leading oneself toward performance of naturally motivating tasks as well as managing oneself to do work that must be done but is not naturally motivating”

Marc Wachtfogel, Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 20, 2014 12:58 PM

The adage "Leader know thyself" is powerful. By far the most difficult and most rewarding path is developing a deeper understanding of the self. This is the journey into the deep dark forest, of meeting and slaying one's dragon...representing realization and the new conceptions of self that one brings to life in the leadership of others. If one wishes to lead, one must be true to one's self, to one's style, to the uniqueness of one's life experience,  and shape it as it is. This is where the treasure is. You are it.

I like the simplicity of this video, and I don't disagree with anything they say fundamentally.  In fact I think they are right on the mark with the exception of their use of the word "follower."  They say that Leaders produce followers, but I believe leaders produce leaders.  They may be front line employees who do not lead anyone else, but instead of following they lead out in their sphere of responsibilities.

 

So other than a little nuance in semantics this is a great video.

Ask Yourself These 5 Questions Before Deciding On A Leadership Style

Ask Yourself These 5 Questions Before Deciding On A Leadership Style | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it

First-time managers often ask themselves how to develop a leadership style that suits them: “Who should I model myself after? What kind of leader should I be?” It’s great to think critically about your approach to managing others, particularly when you’re new to it, but these questions won’t exactly help you.

 

That’s because they assume that leadership is something you try on and show off, a “style” that’s curated and intentional. But especially in the beginning, your style will be based far less on mirroring others’ habits and behaviors and far more on instinct and intuition. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

The Leader as Coach – 4 Ways to Develop a Coaching Mindset

The Leader as Coach – 4 Ways to Develop a Coaching Mindset | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it

Learning new skills can be awkward and uncomfortable. Think back to the first time you interviewed for a job or spoke in front of a group. It’s possible you made some mistakes, but in the long run you grew and developed.

And if you were lucky enough to have someone supporting and partnering with you—someone coaching you through the experience—chances are that support really helped.

In today’s workplace, business leaders are encouraged to coach their direct reports. To do this, leaders must develop a coaching mindset—a mindset that looks for the potential in others.  Here are four ways to get started.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

 

#leadership #management #business

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 2014 9:14 AM

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. 

 

 

(From the article): As leaders, you must begin to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to see the opportunities previous unseen.   Leadership requires you to have circular vision and when you begin to grow complacent, you only see the obvious details before you – rather than those they lie around, beneath and beyond what you seek.  In fact, your mindset becomes stagnate because you are not stretching your perspectives enough to see more than you want to.

 

When you fall into this trap, it’s time to reshuffle the deck, and map out the internal and external factors that are influencing your thinking. You must begin to identify areas that can be improved –  such as relationships, workshop culture, networking, how you are investing in yourself (or lack thereof), etc.

 

It’s not experience, but rather opportunity that is the true mother of success.   Be more mindful about how you manage opportunity before it begins to manage you.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 22, 2014 10:41 AM

The first lesson is a good place to begin. We become so busy we do not look up and from side-to-side. Leaders need to be present and aware of what is happening and not happening. They need to be aware of who is best served to take the reins in a given situation.

 

In School, leadership and management should be intertwined. Quite often, I found that the latter was used almost exclusively and leadership did not exist.

My grandfather had nothing and worked into his 80's.  He lead my family. Jane Goodall is a leader in saving the wild life.  I am very involved in that.  Henri Matisse was a leader in simplicity in Art; it doesn't have to be detailed to get the point across. I think President Bill Clinton was the best leader the US has seen as he helped college students and eliminated our deficit.  CHef Gordon Ramsey is an amazing leader although he runs with an iron fist, he commands respect and excellence in his kitchen.
