Patricia, I like that one too (the one about avoiding back-to-back meetings). It speaks to understanding and prioritizing meetings, as well as extracting yourself from meetings that you don't need to be in. Sounds simple, but if you're in meetings all day, when will you find time to lead? Sometimes, less is more ... this is the case with meetings (fewer and shorter but more productive meetings ... fewer emails but each email is more pertinent ... leaves more time for thinking and leading).

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

When I was in my twenties, I was juggling multiple jobs and had to put my career goals and education on hold.  Everything changed for me when one leader noticed something in me – my spark and potential… and the rest is history. 

 

I know the power that lives inside of each of us, sometimes we just need someone who believes in us to show us the way.  Is your flame going strong?  My goal is to ignite your spark and flame. 

 

YOU have unique gifts and your true power begins when someone believes in you, and takes hold when you start believing in yourself.  

 

I am personally inviting you to get access to my FREE online virtual event! 

 

So I asked some amazing authors and speakers if I could interview them and they said yes!

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

Super infographic for improving communication within an organization.  I know when you go through the infographic you will probably say... I already know that.

 

While you may not be in the position to change the way your entire organization communicates, involves, and engages wtih everyone, you do have control over how you communicate with your team.

 

So, after you go through the infographic and article ask yourself  What should I do?  What do I do? how do I know that effective communicate is really happening?

 

Moving forward, what will I do differently?  Until next time.. .PS - Be on Brand & Live on Purpose!

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

Excellent interview Christina Lattimer!

 

There are so many gold nuggets for CEOs, boards, and leaders alike.

 

For me CEOs like Sir Richard Branson or like Zappo's CEO Tony Hsieh are rare.  They seem to possess the power to reject immediate gratification for what is best for the company's long-term growth. 

 

They know that strategy should not be a secret known by only senior leaders.  People ... are their organization's competitive advantage, and they nurture, inspire, and invest in them.

To some extent, the connection between leadership and the bottom line has been made. Yet most evidence on this point comes merely from the personal treatises of famous and successful executives.

Via Anne Leong, Roy Sheneman, PhD
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

I love research that supports what most of us have seen for ourselves.  There is such a strong ROI on investing in leadership talent.  I was just having this conversation yesterday with an executive. 

 

I believe that leaders are alot like computers.  Just like our computers, we need to make sure that we invest a significant amount of time and money into making sure that we have the most updated software and virus protection for our leaders.  Most leaders are running off of programming from years ago...Isn't it time to reboot, get the viruses out, and update our programming so that we can be aligned with the organization's network (goals), communicate more effectively, and work more efficiently.

 

As leaders when we stop learning we stop growing.  If that happens, what happens to our teams?

5 Ways to Get a Confidence Boost | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Whatever you're about to do, it's incredibly important--and you're incredibly nervous. Here's how to get a quick shot of confidence.
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

Great advice in this article!  No matter how confident you are, you will most definitely be faced with situations that will stretch you out of your comfort zone.  Preparation is king to building confidence when coming face to face with new situations and challenges.

 

I particularly agree with:

- Anticipating objections

- Being prepared to respond

-Productively use up the excess fuel you have


Another easy tip we share is to avoid drinking caffeine, which artifically amplifies emotions.

Successful #Leaders don't do these things

Successful #Leaders don't do these things | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

1.  They don't do the bare minimum; have you ever heard that saying, “The way you do anything is the way you do everything? “  Well, this especially hold true here…they give every task their all and always go way beyond. 

2.  They don't waste time; they work hard to stay on course.  They know how easy it is to get distracted, yet they are disciplined in this area.  They focus their time and energy on what matters most....not what matters least.

3.  They don’t focus on problems – they focus on solutions.  They don't lose sleep or complain about what they can't do.  They shift their energy and resources on what is within their control.

4.  They don't think they can do it alone; the most confident leaders are humble, and seek out advice, assistance, and expertise.  It’s not about them; it’s about their teams, and accomplishing the goals!

5.  They don't think that they always know best; the most confident leaders are curious to learn.  They listen to the ideas of others.  They listen to understand.

6.  They don’t take things personal and let their ego get in the way of achieving goals and building relationships. 

7.  They don’t judge or criticize others.  They stay humble, curious, and open to learn and understand.

 

What else do you think should be on the list?  Would love to hear from you.

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational #Change #Leadership | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

Insightful article!

 

As an HR Professional I have been on all sides of change:  As the person leading change initiatives inside the organization, as an external consultant partnering with senior leaders to execute change, and as the recipient of change inside the organization.

 

What I know to be true is this:  Long are the days when we would say to ourselves..."once this change initiative is complete, things will go back to normal."  The reality is we are living in a VUCA environment. (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous)  Change is the new normal, and we as leaders are tasked with communicating effectively and connecting the dots for our organization.

 

It was always important for the entire team to understand where we are now, where we want to be, and what we as an organization need to do to get there.  Once we confirmed our shared goals & confirmed roles, it was important that everyone understood the why -- the business reasons for the change and we all had the same picture of what success looked like with KPIs.

 

I would ask 3 quesions to adjust my change lens before planning or communications began:

In order for this change to be effective...

1.  What do we as leaders need to know?

2.  What do we need to do?

3.  How do we need to be?

 

Then repeat these 3 questions for our staff?

1.  What does our staff need to know? Is there anything that they need to learn, unlearn, or re-learn? Why should they care?

2.  What are we asking our staff to do as a result of this change?

3.  How do we want our staff to be?

 

Hope this article, and my humble opinion added value to you as a leader.

There are perhaps many good questions leaders ask of their teammates each and every day. The starter list above could easily be replaced with ten others. These ten, however, represent the ten that have served me well over the last eighteen years as a senior leader. They solicit open conversation, deter quick “yes/no” responses, and maintain meaningful communication channels with the team.

11 #Leadership Lessons from Alexander the Great

11 #Leadership Lessons from Alexander the Great | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

Although the ‘Great Man’ theory of leadership belongs to the scrapheap of history, its allure continues to mystify. Underlying this theory is the assumption that if the right man (yes, it is often assumed to be a man) for the job emerges, he will almost magically take control of a situation and lead a group of people into safety or success. While such leaders are rare, there are times when a singular individual steps out from the crowd and serves as a paragon of leadership.


One such individual was Alexander the Great; one of history’s most famous warriors and a legend of almost divine status in his own lifetime. He falls into the elite category of individuals who changed the history of civilisation and shaped the present world as we know it.
