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?

Via Anne Leong, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD, Dean J. Fusto, Elysian Training
Joe Boutte's insight:

Michelle Obama Talks About Race and Success, and Makes It Personal | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
The first lady has been opening up about her own struggles and the “insults and slights” that even living in the White House has not protected her family from.
Joe Boutte's insight:
I appreciate her honesty and insight as a leader in the spotlight. Her life is an example of the American narrative we know as the American Dream. Unfortunately, even the American Dream has rough spots along the way. The First Lady's frank speeches at recent commencements exemplify the courage needed for her everyday leadership.

Baltimore Riots Tragedy Is a Cry for Transformative Leadership - US News

Baltimore Riots Tragedy Is a Cry for Transformative Leadership - US News | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Solving the social problems behind the Baltimore riots requires the sort of politicians we don't have.
Joe Boutte's insight:

In the wake of the riots we see examples of everyday leadership from the people of Baltimore who refuse to be characterized by the lawless behavior of some their youth.  Examples of humanity and community continue to emerge.  Although the press seems to want to focus on the sensational, the quiet leaders of Baltimore persevere amongst the noise to repair and rebuild.  New leaders will emerge and the press will go away, but it's  the everyday, and sometimes, nameless leaders that will transform Baltimore and other urban hotspots.  Additionally, the police departments are filled with everyday leaders who build bridges with the community one person at a time.  Hopefully, the press will start highlighting the "better angels" of Baltimore, citizens and law enforcement officers.  It's the right thing to do!  Here are some highlights from the US News article that I find encouraging or transformative:

 

- "Riots can also serve as a powerful contrast for the goodness in humans – and we all cheered for the mother who disciplined her son for joining the rioters. "

 

- "We were all grateful for the construction workers who brought materials from their job site to board up broken storefront windows. We all respected the citizens of Baltimore who lined up beside the cops to send a message: This must stop now."

 

- "Those who are too assured, whose comments are too rooted in the one-note tune of blame, aren’t leaders."

 

- "If we cannot produce leaders who can connect with the people, the cycle of human conflict will continue in the U.S. Old wounds won’t heal. Fighting will persist. The desire for transformative leadership has never been so palpable, or so remote."

How Emotional Intelligence Became a Key Leadership Skill

How Emotional Intelligence Became a Key Leadership Skill | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

An understanding of what exactly constitutes emotional intelligence is important not only because the capacity is so central to leadership but because people strong in some of its elements can be utterly lacking in others, sometimes to disastrous effect.

Still, it is sign that the field is reaching a certain level of maturity that we are beginning to see some counterarguments. Most notably, a Wharton professor, Adam Grant, who in his own research has reported a lack of correlation between scores on tests of emotional intelligence and business results. While Goleman and others contest his methods, Mayer himself pointed out in 2002 HBR article that “emotional intelligence isn’t the only way to attain success as a leader. A brilliant strategist who can maximize profits may be able to hire and keep talented employees even if he or she doesn’t have strong personal connections with them.” But building those strong connections is still probably a safer bet than ignoring them.

Joe Boutte's insight:

I believe that EI is more than a skill, but more of an understanding of every aspect of leadership or human nature.  At its core, EI is about people and recognizing their emotions and how to channel that energy using the skills of influence to create human energy that results in products, excellent service, innovation, ideas, and profits, to name a few outcomes.

3 Leadership Traits Your Employees Need to Exhibit When You Aren’t Around - Linked 2 Leadership

3 Leadership Traits Your Employees Need to Exhibit When You Aren’t Around - Linked 2 Leadership | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Whether you’re out of the office or your team members are out in the field, they must be able to step into leadership roles and make decisions that will result in positive customer outcomes.

And when something goes awry, your employees need to:

Be prepared to find solutions
Placate frustrated customers
And ultimately turn a potential disaster into a nonissue
This requires that each and every team member is properly prepared to lead with responsibility.

Cultivating a sense of personal responsibility among your team members isn’t just good for your company; it also helps your employees grow.

Joe Boutte's insight:

If your team doesn't know what to do when you aren't around, you've failed as a leader.  The world needs everyday leaders who are autonomous, but understand their leader's vision, intent, and expectations to create the output and outcomes required.

How You Make Decisions Is as Important as What You Decide - blogs.hbr.org (blog) | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
So get your process right.
Joe Boutte's insight:

Everyday leadership integrates the following three statements regarding leaders and decision making from the article.

 

A variable cluster analysis found strong agreement with the following three statements as the behaviors that distinguished decision making with leader-like accountability and ingenuity:

Before making a decision at a critical time, I invested time and effort to explore multiple perspectives, needs, and ideas through a proactive dialogue with experts and stakeholders.During the decision-making act, I weighed a variety of options.Then, after making the decision, I explained it fully to all stakeholders to reduce the stress of change among those affected.

I would put it this way"

-Gather information, people, and ideas (Do the homework)

-Compare and contrast options, including risks.

-Make the decision

-Explain the decision:  communicate, communicate, communicate
