Good habits to practice, and not as easy as it sounds

donhornsby's curator insight, June 23, 9:10 AM

(From the article): Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive. They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

Joe Boutte's insight:

Measure everything and be accountable!  Two of eight practices of an effective leader in organization.  Measuring provides data to support decisions.  Being accountable means taking charge, being in charge, and accepting responsibility for your actions and that of your team.  Together, these are powerful tools and behavior for leading.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

Via Karin Sebelin
Joe Boutte's insight:

Besides parents and family, teachers are the first leaders we deal with in our lives.  They inspire us, mold us, influence us, and lead us to discovery, learning, and dealing with the world around us.  Teachers are the epitome of leadership across the globe.

Jaroslav Berce says:

teacher should by default be a leader: he/she teaches new things, influences others, has listeners, defines personal growing path, can define task and workload. Anything wrong with it?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 25, 1:24 PM

Teachers are leaders. It is not a default position or one that is given to them. It exists in the very words education and pedagogy which mean leading children.

 

The default position has become one where teaching is not leading. It is about managing.

Social Technology and the Changing Context of Leadership

Social Technology and the Changing Context of Leadership | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

Social technologies with their inherent democratic, anti-hierarchical quality easily transcend internal and external boundaries, suddenly creating a powerful thrust for horizontal collaboration and participation. They give each and every member of an organization a creative voice and enable real-time virtual connectivity in a way we have never seen before. This makes them a great catalyst for the organizational principles that are required by the new leadership context of the 21st century.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Joe Boutte's insight:

Everyday leadership integrates all modes of communications.  21st century leaders should leverage new social technologies to communicate strategy, ideas, news, and priorities.  Unleashing communications from the email treadmill to extend and enhance face-to-face and other traditional communications methods is a force multiplier for organizational leadership.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, June 22, 3:01 PM

"Innovation is a "team sport," not the act of a sole inventor. "Truly innovative groups are consistently able to elicit and then combine members' separate slices of genius into a single work of collective genius," the authors write.
