Research: Attributes of Great Leaders - Emotions & Results

Research: Attributes of Great Leaders - Emotions & Results | Embodied Leadership | Scoop.it
What are the key ingredients of great leadership today? Thousands of comments on high performing leaders, study finds key to good vs great

Via David Hain, Claude Emond
Lisa McCarthy's insight:

Fascinating research.  Here are the main themes:

  • Leadership is about people.
  • Passion and purpose are infectious.
  • Top performers go deeper emotionally – not just caring, but personal caring.  Not just a good attitude, but giving the energy for people to smile.

To achieve personal greatness, focus on others first! Great advice borne out by research.

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, June 5, 2014 11:02 AM

Good leaders are not only smart, but have high EQ. They think about others and let reporting people know how important they are. Their passion is infectious, and emotional connection makes the day. I wish we had more of that in corporations today, where most of the labor force is disengaged, and doesn't look forward to their work day.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 6, 2014 11:25 AM

An interesting approach to identifying leader attributes.  To apply these findings, use the purposeful leadership approach that emphasizes the themes of broad alignment, robust engagement, sustainable adaptation and superb execution.  One can clearly see these themes reflected in the summaries of comments described. The common leadership and  management concepts seen here repeatedly emerge in other work: consideration of people, structuring of tasks, managing change, and  envisioning and inspiring a sense of purpose for example...

Post-heroic leaders recognize that the key to success is not adhering to hierarchy or position power, but mastering a complex set of seemingly contradictory organizational dynamics—autonomy and shared decision-making, individuality andteamwork.

We need to create human workplaces!

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, February 12, 9:26 AM

 Two of the main barriers to a lasting and effective leadership transformation are compartmentalization – treating ‘the people side’ as separate from strategy and cost control – and command and control mindsets, which often persist after a nominal shift towards empowerment has been made.

What Actually Makes People Trust You | Fast Company

What Actually Makes People Trust You | Fast Company | Embodied Leadership | Scoop.it

The phrase "talk is cheap" is old, and in leadership roles, talk is particularly cheap.


It is easy to make pronouncements about directions and vision. For people to trust what you say, though, it is important to recognize that you communicate in three ways: through what you say, what you do, and what you reward. And each form of communication on this list is more important than the last....

What Anxiety Does to Your Brain and What You Can Do About It

What Anxiety Does to Your Brain and What You Can Do About It | Embodied Leadership | Scoop.it
We all deal with anxiety in some form or another, whether it's when you're pulled over by the cops or about to give a speech in front of a crowd. But for some, anxiety is a much stronger, more fearsome force--one that never goes away. But what is anxiety exactly, and what's going on in your mind (and your body) when anxiety strikes? How do you cope when it takes hold?

Does my shadow look big in this? - The Guardian | Embodied Leadership | Scoop.it
Leaders must take responsibility for their shadows – the unseen and unacknowledged parts of them that trap potential, says Robin Alfred
Lisa McCarthy's insight:

Shadow work is an essential part of a leader’s practice.  Executive coaching is a great arena for shadow work, providing a mirror for us to see ourselves more clearly and supporting us to generate choices about other ways of thinking and behaving. If the issues are deep-seated and appear immutable then a more therapeutic intervention might be necessary.

(From the article) Work is a tool to develop people who, in turn, do great work.Traditional view of leadership is that leaders get work done through people. Which is true, however, I also believe that available body of work is an opportunity to develop people. You can use people as ‘resources’ OR you can use work as a ‘resource’ to develop people.

Chris Brown's curator insight, February 11, 1:54 PM

Interacting with remote employees is not as comfortable for leaders as working with people face to face.  Increasingly we find the workforce to be more dispersed and leaders that tend to overcompensate by more frequent visits, calls, reporting, etc.


This article points out that the expectations of all employees, remote or not, should be the same.  


Have a read and then consider how this might change how you interact with remote employees.

Lisa McCarthy's insight:

Action learners live in shared leadership. They often strive to find a common understanding for problems, which gives them a shared purpose and orientation. They look for solutions that truly address the challenge without regard for the politically right answer. Experimenting and failing is no longer feared but embraced and seen as an opportunity to excel.
