Practical Tips for Productive Living (8 Things Extraordinary People Give to Others --> http://t.co/z8vxVI0z9K #selflessness #happiness #leadership #coaching)...
Joe Boutte's insight:
The difference between ordinary people and extraordinary people is the word “extra.” As Anne Frank once said, “No one has ever become poor by giving.” Whenever you can, go out of your way and do something nice and unexpected for those around you, especially those who may never be able to repay you. Be the “extra” in extraordinary.

3 Reasons Why A New Perspective Is Important for Leaders

3 Reasons Why A New Perspective Is Important for Leaders | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Leaders get to the top by constantly progressing and innovating, so it’s crucial on both an individual and organizational level, to continue doing so.

Getting New Perspectives

In my experience, one way to ensure that you’re constantly pushing the ball forward as opposed to just keeping trains running on time is to collect new perspectives through experiences and travel.

Here are three reasons why I believe perspective and traveling and is so important for leaders:

Via David Hain
Joe Boutte's insight:

Mixing it up is a great way to gain experience, consider new perspectives, and allow ideas to collide to create fresh approaches to everyday leadership.  Traveling for leaders sometimes means walking through your own spaces and talking to the people you lead.

Broadening perspective can keep leadership fresh...

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, July 7, 10:08 AM

Most disagreements, failures and missed opportunities are because of the loss of perspective or too small of a perspective on the situation. Expanding perspectives will always improve visibility.

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.

I do a lot of executive coaching and my favorite focus is on leadership coaching. It is in this area that I have been able to help clients make the greatest changes - reap the biggest benefits.
Joe Boutte's insight:

Leadership requires knowing yourself and being yourself.  We can fool ourselves for a long time, but others are more perceptive.  Authentic leadership is a good, healthy understanding of knowing how others perceive you, which is a sense of self in context.

I love the word and concept of empowerment.  It means freedom and agility to explore our strengths, talents, skills, and influence.  Not only is the word and concept liberating, empowerment is leadership multiplication and is one of the best ways to get things done.

How to make it relevant to their work.
Joe Boutte's insight:

 Leaders are responsible for translating the same vision into different messages that their unique teams will respond to. Second, augment logical reasoning with an emotional appeal to inspire. That’s how you get buy-in, and how you shift the team’s response from “I have to,” to “I want to.”

Manage Your Team’s Collective Time

Manage Your Team’s Collective Time | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Some teams are plagued by interruptions—the nonstop distractions common in a cubicle culture with constant e-mailing, an excess of meetings, and so on. These teams’ members crave focused time in order to eliminate the stress of unfinished tasks or the need to take work home. The structured-time-off goal in this case is quiet, uninterrupted time, including meeting-free time.
Joe Boutte's insight:

Everyday leaders enable managers and team members to maximize their personal and collective time.  One of the important findings of this study is how we are constantly interrupted and disrupted in many office environments. Structured time off and free time are ways to mitigate the disruptive cycles.

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.

Via David Hain
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.
