The Philadelphia Eagles have an innovative personnel strategy: targeting college grads. | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

dayThe Philadelphia Eagles have quietly scoured the college ranks for something that has little to do with 40-yard dash times or bench-press abilities. They want players who have earned college degrees.

Joe Boutte's insight:

Everyday leadership means knowing your people and using data to understand how they have performed and will perform.  The Eagles have a great personnel strategy that may change the NFL and help put focus back on education and life success for student-athletes.  I personally think coaches are some of the greatest leaders on the planet.  At all levels they engage, influence, and lead people to be better people.

Joe Boutte's insight:

More than anything else, leadership is about character and authenticity. It is about taking ownership for changing something and making it better than you found it. And when that change operates with responsibility, it earns respect. Leadership is exercised every day—in schools, homes, and other institutions. In this article, I look at it from the corporate lens, though its central premise holds everywhere

Why Great Leaders Get Angry--and Show It

Why Great Leaders Get Angry--and Show It | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
You can still get even...but you can also get mad.

Via donhornsby
Joe Boutte's insight:

As humans, we all get angry, but as leaders, we need to move from anger to action and use that energy to create the outcomes we seek.  The difference between being an angry person and a leader that achieves results is that we don't let anger linger too long because it can be a detriment to a team or organization's culture and productivity.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 18, 2014 8:43 AM

Interesting article. However, I think that the way the article ends provides sage advice: "But there's still one major problem with getting mad. When you're angry, it's easy to do and say things you later regret. That's why the key to harnessing anger is to find a way to stay smart and in control while you're angry."

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:52 AM

Leading is connecting to people relationship and feelings. Avoiding a part of these feelings is just wrong. One sentence that always make me laugh is the famous: "This is not personal, only business" what a stupid one's!


Getting angry is , in some cases, is fully justified and sometimes just. Avoiding it will just hurt you and can also trigger wrong behavior of the one who deserved your anger.


Once this said, the main issue with anger is how to keep control of it and not let it control you!
