5 Idea-Related Leadership Mistakes You Can't Afford To Make | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Virtually all leaders say they champion the development of new ideas. But do your actions as a leader consciously encourage the creation of new ideas - or unconsciously suppress them?

Self-leadership: How good are you in leading yourself? | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
When most people think of leaders, they think of famous people like Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, or (when talking about toxic leaders), Adolf Hitler. But why not think about ourselves in term of a leader?

Stefano Principato's curator insight, April 22, 2014 10:04 PM

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, PhD's curator insight, December 20, 2014 5:58 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.

Nice piece from Mike Myatt.

John Michel's curator insight, July 2, 2013 3:33 AM

A lack of stability harms culture, stifles productivity, erodes trust, and makes it extremely difficult to retain top talent. Instability can also be a harbinger of bigger problems. The passing of time will usually reveal unstable leaders also tend to be lacking in several other areas.

HBR Blog Network: is it time for mutiny?

HBR Blog Network: is it time for mutiny? | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
HBR blog post
Joe Boutte's insight:
Leadership is destructive. Unlike in entrepreneurial communities, the notion of mutiny is anathema to the dominant logic of organizational life in big companies. That doesn't mean that those working under a bad leader don't fantasize about taking mutinous action, or indulge in more subtle forms of it. (A mutiny that is social and intellectual can still be intense.) It may mean, however, that they are putting their careers much more at risk, and that perhaps they should consider another kind of life: the authority-dashing life of the entrepreneur.
