Belinda MJ.B's insight:

"Gender expectations are so ingrained that defying them can come at personal cost. Aggressive and competitive women can be called everything from harsh to hormonal. Men — as well as women — who are empathetic and responsive can be called soft. Only the tough guy boss seems to get a pass: he’s excepted, even respected, because he fits our long-conditioned ideals of how take-charge leaders lead."

Why Your Critics Aren't The Ones Who Count

One of the most underrated parts of the creative process is remaining vulnerable says New York Times bestselling author Brenè Brown in this magical 99U talk.

Brené Brown has an amazing and scientific way to approach what is important in effective leadership to lead ourselves toward what we want and to lead others as well. Vulnerability is one of the key element of the creative process!

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 7:15 AM

Excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic" delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910 by Theodore Roosevelt.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Put yourself In the Shoes Of Others When Managing Change | Leadership Principles | Team Success : Global Leadership Coaching Tips and Free Content | Scoop.it

When it comes to Change Management, people often don’t understand the impact that changes can have upon the people.

We are all human beings and we are prone to emotional responses, and in times of stress, such as change, these responses can be very strong, and are often under estimated.

Just recently I had to inform my wife of big change, this change was good for me, a great opportunity, and I thought she would see it in the same light.

Thanks for the great curation Maria Rachelle.  Starting with my mother, some of the most influential leadership mentors I have had are women.   This research makes a lot of sense to me!

 

Especially the following section:

 

Empathy Is Innovation. While leaders spend considerable time and effort trying to envision markets and pushing out innovation, empathy can often generate simple, yet breakthrough ideas. In her years working as an advocate for charities in Britain and abroad, Anna Pearson noticed a pattern: there were many people who wanted to volunteer — but were too busy (or had schedules too varied) to commit to a cause.

 

To bridge the gap between what volunteers could give and what people need, Anna re-imagined volunteering on a very small scale. Her London-based non-profit Spots of Time connects organizations with people who can give an hour or so at a time, and often at a moment’s notice. The lesson? Anna trained her empathy not just on beneficiaries of charity but also on volunteers. That kindness and sensitivity to others was the catalyst for creativity.
