Questions are powerful tools that, when used properly, can help all of us improve the quality of our leadership.

I always appreciate articles by Ron Whitaker, this one especially. 

 

From the article:

 

Take a minute, right now, to download and print the About Leaders goal setting worksheet. Get a pencil with a nice eraser to make editing easier and write down a goal that is extremely important to you.

 

Here are some questions to use when you are mapping out your goal.  Have fun with this and don’t get hung up on whether you think your goal is possible or not.

 

~What is the most important goal you want to accomplish, your life goal?

~What are the most important things in your life right now? Do they fit with your life goal?

~What are the obstacles to achieving your life goal? Money, time, work, responsibilities, etc.

~How can you overcome any obstacles?

~If you feel you’re off track, how will you get back on track?

David Hain's curator insight, April 4, 2013 11:10 AM

So many people have 'wish lists' - I campletely agree about writing goals down. Another tip is to share them out loud with someone else - then you have made a commitment that isn't so easy to rationalise away in the mirror...

donhornsby's curator insight, April 5, 2013 8:23 AM

(From the article): If someone woke you up at 3 o’clock in the morning, out of a deep sleep, and asked:What is the one thing, the biggest thing, you want to accomplish in life? What would you say? What would be the first thing that comes to mind – your automatic response? That’s your primary life goal.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 4, 2013 8:31 AM

(From the article): Being in a position of power certainly changes you - not necessarily in an evil way, but research shows there is a definite shift in how you perceive the world around you when you're the one in the driver's seat. You think in a more abstract, big-picture way. You become more optimistic, more comfortable with risk, and more open to new possibilities. 

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, March 4, 2013 10:35 AM

When the powerful can become the powerless, and vice versa, psychologists call it an "unstable power hierarchy."

 

If you are operating in that kind of environment and staying powerful and influential is your primary focus, then feelings of power can actually make you more conservative. 

 

When you don't want to lose the power you've worked so hard to attain, you avoid risks and potential mistakes, and your creativity is diminished.

 

So if you are at the top of your game and your position is essentially irrevocable or at least particularly secure (think Steve Jobs or Richard Branson) your creativity will flourish.

When you don't want to lose the power, you avoid risks and your creativity is diminished.

Love this!  From the article:

 

Leadership isn’t management.  This is the big one. Leadership and management are not synonymous.  You have 15 people in your downline and P&L responsibility? Good for you, hopefully you are a good manager. Good management is needed. Managers need to plan, measure, monitor, coordinate, solve, hire, fire, and so many other things. Typically, managers manage things. Leaders lead people.

 

 

DEFINITION: Leadership is a process of social influence, which maximizes the efforts of others, towards the achievement of a goal.

Love this article as it deals with something many managers struggle with, interupting others. It does not matter if we had to do it in the past, truth is listening is superior and we have to learn how to do it.

 

From the article:

 

One afternoon over ten years ago, I was talking on the phone to my boss, former GE Chairman and CEO Jack Welch, when the line went dead. I called his assistant Rosanne Badowski to say we had been disconnected.


“No you weren’t,” she said. “Jack hung up on you.”

"Huh?"


"He wants you to know that's what it's like to be in a meeting with you, "

Rosanne said.

 

"You're too abrupt."


 

donhornsby's curator insight, March 22, 2013 10:22 AM

Do you take time to get to know others - before you launch in?

 

 

(From the article): Imagine my surprise when he called me into his office that day and admonished me for beingtoo efficient. My zeal to do everything on my to-do list—along with my reserved, even shy nature—made me come across as abrupt and cold. I started every meeting by jumping right in and left with every action under control.

 

"You have to wallow in it," he said. "Take time to get to know people. Understand where they are coming from, what is important to them. Make sure they are with you."

 

At best, my colleagues didn't know what to make of me—and I certainly didn't give them time to find out.

From the article:

 

What Is Feedback, Anyway?

The term feedback is often used to describe all kinds of comments made after the fact, including advice, praise, and evaluation. But none of these are feedback, strictly speaking.

 

 

Basically, feedback is information about how we are doing in our efforts to reach a goal.

 

I hit a tennis ball with the goal of keeping it in the court, and I see where it lands—in or out.

 

I tell a joke with the goal of making people laugh, and I observe the audience's reaction—they laugh loudly or barely snicker.

 

I teach a lesson with the goal of engaging students, and I see that some students have their eyes riveted on me while others are nodding off.
