"..strong leaders move people to action.." - 6 Things Really Compelling Leaders Do

"..strong leaders move people to action.." - 6 Things Really Compelling Leaders Do | Helena Gonçalves | Scoop.it
Many leaders can inspire, but strong leaders move people to action. Here's what makes them special.

Via Anne Leong
Helena Gonçalves's insight:

Every once in a while, an amazing leader surfaces, one capable of moving people to action. This is not just a leader who gets people to think. This is a leader who is truly compelling, who can get people to change course and give of themselves.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 4, 1:22 PM

Here's what I think is important about this article: if you want to be a wildly influential leader that gets stuff done, here are the 6 things to pay attention to.


Now the question is -- how do you actually do these 6 things? One path is learning to tell effective and compelling stories. Stories that move people to action because of their carefully crafted endings (see our new book Business Storytelling for Dummies for how to do that). Then check out Paul Smith's book Lead With A Story on the variety of stories leaders need to tell 


Building story skills will help you show your strength, connect empathically, inspire with vision, spark taking action, and instill confidence -- everything this article identifies.


Dig into storytelling. Build those skills. Doing so, you will be come a compelling leader.


Thank you to fellow curator Anne Leong for originally finding and sharing this post!

Better leadership better, better results, period. Any manager or executive that feels leadership people skills are fluff, is not a leader. 

 

Wonderful content here from thought leader Kate Nasser.  

 

From the article:

 

We applaud leaders with strong clear vision. We applaud them if they can communicate it in a way that respects, engages, and influences others vs. browbeating them.

 

We disengage from leaders with poor leadership people skills no matter how incredible the vision. The vision then slows, fades, or dies altogether.

Think of the most engaging people you know. My guess is they're charming, interesting, and make you feel special.

We all want to be perceived that way, don't we? Here are several character traits you should work on if you want to be magnetic and likeable.

Curiousity


By nature children are curious, but we lose much of our inquisitiveness as we age. Yet it's such a vital trait, especially in business. Curiousity drives you to continuously learn about your industry, understand your customers, and create innovative products.

My favorite people are direct and not afraid to share things about themselves that might even make them look bad. In doing so they convey a sense of humility, honesty, and vulnerability that work to lower people's defenses. If you can do that, you're well on your way to engaging with them.

60 Inconvenient Personal Development Truths

60 Inconvenient Personal Development Truths | Helena Gonçalves | Scoop.it

I know you want to be the best you can be. We all do. But sometimes we look for success in the wrong places or we try to achieve it in the wrong ways.

 

Here are 60 inconvenient truths about personal development to help you stay on track.

 

The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. Growing happens when what you know changes how you live.You can’t have good ideas unless you’re willing to generate a lot of bad ones.A good idea without action is nothing at all.It’s not so much about finding opportunities as it is about creating them.10% of our lives is decided by uncontrollable circumstances. 90% is decided by how we react to those circumstances.What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow.If you’re waiting for the perfect conditions, ideas or plans to get started, you’ll never achieve anything.

There are many strands to developing emotional intelligence, and believe me, my EQ is tested most days. Emotions are as a result of the thoughts and beliefs about the experiences we encounter in life. As mature adults it is great if we learn to master our feelings, and if we don’t there is a danger that our emotions become the master of us. How we interpret events and incidents is key to leading successfully. This week’s blog is about my latest challenge in mastering emotions.
