John Michel's curator insight, October 9, 2013 10:43 AM

True listeners look beyond the words themselves—they search for meaning in the speaker’s tone and body language. This is especially important when the communication has an emotional component.

Estelblau's curator insight, October 9, 2013 11:57 AM

How do interpreters really listen? What do you think about it?

 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 10, 2013 4:03 PM

Listening and prayer share etymological roots. Deep listening is a quality of a servant-leader and mindful leadership.

Why Self-Awareness Is the Secret Weapon #Leadership

Why Self-Awareness Is the Secret Weapon #Leadership | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

More than we’d probably like to admit so many of our days are spent in a state of self-delusion, an internal monologue of justifying our actions, both good and bad. When we do something wrong, our evolutionary instincts kick in and we do anything we can to not acknowledge the obvious: sometimes, it’s all our fault.

Real habit change comes from taking a candid look at your shortcomings. Or, as Epictetus once said: Self-scrutiny applied with kindness - in other words. the mirror test!.

John Michel's curator insight, August 18, 3:26 AM

Over time, this becomes our routine, our default reaction, and we fail to stop and reflect on what we’re doing. To make it even more difficult, many of us don’t have the luxury of someone being accountable for us (who does?), helping us recognize our mistakes and their repercussions.

This is a really compelling article that challenged me to reflect on the challenges of leadership.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, August 22, 12:25 AM

It's a very intersting topic and mostly I undersign it... though it's culture-dependent too... the context, the connotation you might have by reading e.g. this title... that  might  count too...  coming from a region where story-telling might be a substitute of lots of things, among other things, lying, or - as one of my cross-cultural researcher friend said once - saying "no", I have some reserves... but even in the Anerican culture, whether the executives of Enron e.g. weren't (surely not authentic but) excellent story-tellers? If you are with me on that... 

 

Of course, the message goes better into the deep with emotions and what is better than the story-telling like emotion-vehicle? of course... but to say that the future leader's main characteristics are courage and story-telling capacity is, I don't know, IMHO, not only simplistic but simply not enough...

 

Starting by the main point what story he/she should so well and authentically tell? What the content is of this famous story? I would start here when drawing this profile... and yes the sellability, the motivation-power, the capacity of  being able to attract the followers, to be able to align their energy are also important but somehow the content of all these has a certain priority in my mind...

S'Marie Young, CPCC's curator insight, August 22, 12:00 PM

This article highlights some of the qualities successful leaders of the present and future must cultivate, such as courage, resiliency, permeability and transparency. These qualities create a powerful presence, one that people can trust.


Presence is knowing yourself, your values, passions and goals, and being able to communicate them authentically. Presence is also being empathetic to the aspirations of others.

(From the article): When you get people in alignment with purpose, the alignment of specific goals and strategies will come much easier. But perhaps more importantly, when this clarity and meaning is achieved, the perspective of every team member will shift from “opportunity is nowhere” to “opportunity is now here.”

donhornsby's curator insight, August 21, 8:01 AM

(From the article): Getting a relationship with a coworker back on track may require that you put your ego away. “We often get stuck in our heads about who’s wrong and who’s right. And when you’re hooked on the idea that you’re right, you can’t start to repair the relationship because the issue of who’s at fault becomes a distraction,” says David. To satisfy this need to be right while not letting it affect how you interact with the person, David suggests “imagining the other person with a big, fat sticker on his back that says, ‘I’m wrong.’” Then you can just focus on moving the relationship forward.

#Coaching vs. #mentoring: what works best?

#Coaching vs. #mentoring: what works best? | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs

 

Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.

 

Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.

Les termes de coaching et mentoring sont souvent utilisés et je n'avais pas vraiment réfléchi à la différence des deux approches. Si elles se basent toutes deux sur des échanges informels, elles ont un périmètre et des objectifs différents très bien expliqués dans l'article.

Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's insight:

Good article and great reminder!

 

Daniel Pink's book "Drive" talks about the 3 things that motivate staff:  AMP - Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose. 

 

Our teams need to know that:

1.  They are important to us

2.  That they are heard and understood

3.  That they are empowered to make decisions and do their job with our support

4.  That they belong -- they are part of a community

5.  That they are growing and that we are helping them reach theri potential

 

So what are some things that you do to build your culture, build your teams, and keep your staff motivated? 

 

Please, would really value your input and feedback on this.

 

As always thank you for stopping by.  Always looking for ways to help you accelerate your success and live on purpose!

BPIWorld.com's curator insight, August 4, 7:07 AM

The important practice here is to set clear expectations, and performance goals. The potential for highly charged emotional reactions from both parties could be detrimental to success. Instead, be willing to look at the possibilities for helping the business grow and the specific goals that that individual wants to achieve. For example, if the goal is for all employees to place 1 hour of sales and 1 hour of marketing into their day, connect it to a sales quota and possible commission structure. Then, the motivation for doing so becomes more relevant - and will take away from having to do constant busy work that does not stimulate and inspire.  The results will bring substantial growth and take away the anger from both the owner/manager and employee...
