The Death of the Hero Leader

The Death of the Hero Leader | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
We have moved to a new age of leadership causing the death of hero leaders and the birth of social artists.

Ron McIntyre's insight:

This is an excellent point.  The model today requires significantly different approaches to communications and connection.  The focus cannot be on only one person.

#Blogathon latest.  Forget your 'to do' list, what's on your 'to be' list?

(From the article): Above all else, you must be genuinely you. Don’t be a mini-someone else. You have to operate knowing that you have everything you need to be a leader. Can you polish a few things? Sure. Will you learn ways to become more effective? Absolutely, but the canvas that you work from is you. I rarely meet a leader who is 180 degrees off the mark in being a leader that others want to follow.


Here are three things to increase the level of genuine you’re bringing to the office:


Be vulnerable; if you don’t know, admit it.Admit your mistakes and then make it right.Act with integrity. Integrity means to do the right thing even when no one is watching.


If you focus your leadership on being present, clear, and genuine, your leadership confidence, focus, and results will grow. As you grow, so will your team. Everyone wins!

There is a quality of mindfulness in the article i.e. being present. This is positive and can be built on to create organizations which are fluid and flexible.


In School, we still adhere to the hero leader i.e. principals who can change thing and silver bullet solutions i.e. the fad du jour. The result is we deform rather than transform School.
