Does where you’re from affect your leadership style?

Does where you’re from affect your leadership style? | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Have you ever had difficulty working with people from different cultures? If so, this article from the Harvard Business Review might explain why.

By analysing reports on 1,500 senior executives, Gurnek Bains, from leadership consultancy YSC, was able to reveal their strengths and weaknesses. His team divided the data across regions and into different categories.

As globalization continues apace, emotional intelligence about different cultures and practices is key. To lead a global team, technical knowledge and industry awareness is not enough: cross-cultural understanding is a must.

Five Phrases The Best Leaders Use Repetitively, And The One They Never Say

Five Phrases The Best Leaders Use Repetitively, And The One They Never Say | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

Have you ever seen someone solve a Rubik’s cube in less than 40 seconds? It’s mesmerizing. Turn. Twist. Turn again. Rotate. Align. Spin. The action goes by so fast, it’s almost dizzying.

How do people get so good at solving those little cubes? It’s not just the principle of “practice makes perfect.” The most avid Rubik’s cube solvers will tell you that they got really good once they understood the mathematical principles of the cube. They know how many rotations are needed to align certain blocks. They understand that the middle block never moves. They count their turns to ensure they’re turning in correct steps. In short, they know exactly how the cube functions, and how to make it work.

The best leaders do almost the same thing. They understand the personality and dynamics of their team. They take the time to get to know individuals and learn their skills and strengths. And then, they use their time-tested strategies—the five phrases below—again and again, to lead the team past any obstacle and empower them to create great work in every situation. In fact, the best leaders use these five phrases repetitively because they are so successful. What are the five signature repetitive phrases of virtuoso leaders, and the one thing they’ll never say? Read on to find out.

I really appreciated the incites of S. Chris Edmonds in this article, especially points 1 & 5.  The more we hesitate changing a bad culture the harder it will become and yes it is a team challenge. No room for a hero.

The author of this article, S. Chris Edmonds, shares a few incredibly important points for leaders sharing stories. The first one is that stories help guide behavior. Tell the wrong stories and you'll be sorry.

 

On the other hand, if a leader knows the right stories to share, the bottom line increases. Gotta love that. Makes you wonder why more CEOs are paying attention this. And if you are a CEO who does -- yay!

 

I will also point out that sharing stories is not enough. Rewards and acknowledgement are critical for success. You'll see what I mean when you read the article.

 

What I also really like in this post are the 2 stories Edmonds shares to make his point. Not only are they good stories, they drive home the advice he brings to the table. Enjoy.

The Win-Win When Companies Start Leveraging Baby Boomers | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
I’m a Baby Boomer, born smack-dab in the middle of my generation. And I’m beginning to concretely think about the answers to questions like: What is the legacy that my career will leave …
Ron McIntyre's insight:

I totally agree with this premise and yes I am biased since I am a baby boomer. We have to embrace our roles and help the next generation of leaders to grow and improve the situation. We have a lot of problems that were created on our watch and I, for one, want to help sort out some of them.

The Real Reason You Can't Delegate -- It's Not You, And It's Not Them

The Real Reason You Can't Delegate -- It's Not You, And It's Not Them | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
You don't often meet people who argue against the virtues of delegation, or empowerment. Even more rarely do you meet anyone who argues in favour of micro-management, obsessively controlling every detail of what your staff do. Yet there is no shortage of micro-management about; why? Partly it's a symptom of [...]
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Alastair has a very valid point in this article! The reason that delegation may not be working is that the process is broken. Too often we blame people first then if we are lucky we think about the process. I have always recommended starting with the processes first so you don't invoke the blame game with people!

From Humble Leader to Narcissist: Where Are You on the Continuum?

From Humble Leader to Narcissist: Where Are You on the Continuum? | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Typically, narcissism is historically associated with physical beauty.

You may recall that in Greek mythology, Narcissus was the handsome young man who became so enchanted with the image of himself in the pool that he could not pull away.

Today we hear about a leader who has narcissistic tendencies, but it’s not so much about their physical beauty as their strong, offensive ego.

Where do fit on the narcissistic leadership continuum? Pinpoint your spot –
