Part 1 of 4 - Top derailers for even the best leaders!

Part 1 of 4 - Top derailers for even the best leaders! | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Cruise Line Class's insight:

 In all of the derailers that I will review in this 4 part posting....we as leaders have forgotten the goal, and the situation has become all about me! 

 

Today we will explore one of my favorite derailers....Assumptions. 

 

When something goes wrong, and it sometimes will -- we begin to ask questions like...

-Why did they do that....

-I thought they were going to do ...

- I assumed that you would ....

-Who didn't do their job...

-Why don't they ever...

- They threw me under the bus...

-They did ___ on purpose, because they wanted to....

 

In the above examples our energy and focus was directed on placing blame/ or making assumptions as to the intent of another person's actions, words, or behaviors.  .

 

 I suggest that we should be curious and genuinely seek to understand without assuming another person's intentions. 

 

You will find that you will build trust/credibility while lowering your stress level. 

 

Would love to hear from you....Make it a great day!

I just 'test drove' this online application - it was very fast and accurately caught my spelling errors. As a basic tool for students, I think it is, or will be, one that they can use before they turn to the writing tutors. I don't advocate trying to replace professional writing tutors with this (or any other) online tool, but it would certainly reduce the number of common errors made in student writings.

 

Since it is a free service, I would recommend educators consider giving it a test drive in their writing courses to determine whether or not any value is added in doing so. While there are plenty of word processing tools avialble for students to use in order to hone in on their writing, this one is free and seems to adequately, and quickly, perform the basics.

 

Not really an endorsement, as much as a recommendation for other to consider testing for themselves.

Many studies have addressed the issue of identifying the different dimensions of culture. In the presentations concerning culture by Madlin Reck and Anne Tornow the ways in which national culture may influence management processes, including Hofstede’s dimensions of culture have been discussed extensively (Luthans & Doh, 2012).

Afghanistan and the Taliban: Before, After and Now

The Kite Runner was set in the years 1975-2001. Everything during these years went from being peaceful, to bad, to even worse. The Taliban during these fateful years have taken control of Afghanistan and its government. They were thought of as heroes to the people of their once peaceful country, but their way of controlling their government is sadistic. In the present, they are even involved in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

During 1975, Afghanistan was a quiet place to live. There were economic hardships, but the residents of this pleasant country got through it. Kabul is the capital city of Afghanistan. It had the most economy problems in the country. Most of them were poverty difficulties. The president of this country at the time was Daoud Khan. Then, when winter came along, resistance towards communists began. Amir from The Kite Runner even knew of these communist attempts to rule his country. “Huddled together in the dining room and waiting for the sun to rise, none of us had any notion that a way of life had ended.” (Hosseini 36). The Afghan Islamist part of the resistance was favored by Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and the United States instead of the Afghan traditionalist and royalist parts. The uprising has just begun for the communist takeover in Afghanistan.

In 1979, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. Even Amir from The Kite Runner even knew about this before it all happened. “And then in December 1979, when Russian tanks would roll into the very same streets where Hassan and I played, bringing the death of the Afghanistan I knew”(Hosseini 36) The Taliban during this time were thought of as refugees and were part of a resistance movement to expel the Russian troops from their country. The United States and Pakistan provided financial and military support so the Afghans could win against the Soviet soldiers. Despite the fact that there were civilians in Kabul, the Afghans did not care and used missiles, provided by the United States, to drop on the city resulting in civilian casualties and killed Soviet troops. In 1989, Ahmed Shah Massoud, took over Kabul as new leader. They ended up overthrowing President Sayid Mohammed Najibullah, who headed the Afghan government. In 1994, the Taliban were more powerful because Pakistan favored them and did everything in their power to support them. “Pakistan support for the Taliban is based on strong religious and ethnic bonds between the Taliban and Pakistan” (Amghar, Web 6). The militants of the Taliban are Sunni Muslim Pashtuns. They are thirteen percent of Pakistan’s population. They are basically most of the Taliban in general.

In 1996, Osama Bin Laden moved from Sudan to Afghanistan and met with Mullah Mohammed Omar, the Taliban’s leader. “Bin Laden was involved in the bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998” (Amghar, Web 6). On September 11th, 2001, Bin laden prompted the bombing of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. This resulted in the United States asking the Taliban to immediately hand over Bin Laden. General Pervez Musharraf, president of Pakistan, told the U.S. that he would support the capturing of Bin Laden. Instead, they couldn’t take down Bin Laden and Al Qaeda because of the ethnic and religious ties with the Taliban. Basically, Pakistan let the Taliban do what like to the people in there cites by robbing them and raping women. “The Taliban were exceedingly ignorant, which made them cruel” (Arbabzadah, Web 1). The Taliban used to be heroes to the people of the country, but now they are just plain evil. In The Kite Runner, Amir’s friend Farid said the Taliban would look for any excuse for violence. Amir bought a fake beard because it is considered a sin to shave and that all men should have beards. He saw Kabul during this time and was unfamiliar with it as it is not how it used to be when he was a kid. Afghanistan is just plagued by the Taliban with no hope for escape.

 

 In conclusion, the Taliban before, after, and now are a deadly force to reckon with. I have to say that religion has a strong connection with them as they think of most things as sins. Amir from The Kite Runner depicts Afghanistan as a peaceful state. Now, he thinks of it as a wasteland that is ruled by a stubborn government with a false sense of religion. In my opinion, as much as I hate the Taliban, they must be removed from Afghanistan and Pakistan because they can cause a lot of trouble for those countries and can stir up many civil wars within those countries.

Communication is a Skill

Cruise Line Class's insight:

In my work I am so lucky that I get to learn and grow from some of the most successful global brands and talented world-class leaders!

 

One thing that I have noticed is that these leaders invest in themselves and consistently work on growing individually and collectively.

 

Effective communication takes work...it requires effort, discipline, and patience.  The payoff is huge:  Improved efficincies, productivity, results, relationships and reduced stress and re-work.

 

It is less about you...and what you want to say, and more about the audience and the approach to achieve your goal while keeping your relationships whole.

 

What are some things and tips you do to build your communication muscles?  Would love to hear from you.

Interesting article. (From the article): There is a growing body of evidence that shows that organizations with flat structures outperform those with more traditional hierarchies in most situations (see the work of Gary Hamel for a good summary of these results).  But while we are seeing an increasing number of firms using flat structures, they are still relatively rare.  Why is this so?

How To Foster Employee Trust And Growth Through Constructive Feedback  ~ True leaders understand the power of feedback, but they always make sure that the delivery of feedback is constructive.

Cruise Line Class's insight:

Giving feedback should be approached like a conversation where your goal is to always come from a positive position where you invest in your team.  If you want to build trust and encourage empowerment and support, its not what you say usually....its how you say it.

 

Start with something Positive, then discuss the opportunity without saying the word "but", and end with either a positive or with a partnering statement.

Lots of resonance here - in terms of working as a leader with other teachers, and in terms of teaching and providing feedback to students. The notion of postivies plus constructive criticism and honesty aligns with formative assessment principles, too, eg Medals and Missions (Petty).

WIKI MANAGEMENT - A New Book From Rod Collins

WIKI MANAGEMENT - A New Book From Rod Collins | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

It’s a brave, new hyper-connected world… We now live in a “wiki” world where mass collaboration is not only possible—it’s often the best solution. Conventional management thought assumes that command-and-control is the most effective way to organize the efforts of large numbers of people, but rapid change and increasing complexity have rendered that model obsolete. As a result, most managers today lack the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in an age when networks are proving smarter and faster than hierarchies. Designing organizations for mass collaboration demands a new and very different model—wiki management.

We know that the brain is exquisitely tuned to social relationships, shaped by and shaping our relationships with others from birth onwards. A number of evolutionary psychologists maintain that our brain is proportionately the largest of all mammals because of the need to maintain relationships with large numbers of people. So why should relationship issues be so hard and what can the neurosciences tell us that might help?

I've always felt that the labelling of relationship management as 'soft stuff' is wholly inaccurate, as it has never been so and never will be!

 

Managing your relationships as a leader and manager has always been tough, complex and often downright hazardous! So 'soft stuff' is a complete oxymoron! However, here's a useful article to explore why is is so hard just that little bit further!

This is a terrific list by Jacquelyn Smith at Forbes, and a great way to check in on how you are doing at work or what skills you might need to upgrade to realize greater success.


I was checking out this article just because when I realized how much storytelling skills play a role here. In fact, 13 of the 20 success skills can be connected to storytelling. Here they are:


  1. Ability to relate to others -- building storytelling skills builds empathy and builds relationships.
  2. Strong communication skills -- don't be boring or shy: storytelling to the rescue!
  3. Ability to trust others -- well, stories help build trust.
  4. Knowing how and when to show empathy -- building storytelling skills builds empathy skills.
  5. Active listening skills -- effective storytelling is really all about listening to someone else's story first.
  6. Genuine interest in others -- through building storytelling/story evoking skills you have a lot more fun genuinely getting to know someone.
  7. Flexibility -- there's a lot to flexibility, and becoming proficient in storytelling means learning how to shift and change the story in real time (i.e. being flexible!). Hopefully this spills over into other areas of life :)
  8. Ability to persuade others -- well, storytelling is your best tool for this!
  9. Ability to keep an open mind -- I've noticed that as I listen to other people's stories I become much more tolerant. Hopefully, others do too.
  10. Knowing your audience -- telling a great story that connects with others doesn't happen unless you know your audience, which storytelling can help teach you.
  11. Honesty -- if you are unable to tell an honest and authentic story, you are toast. Need I say more?
  12. Awareness of body langauge -- as you learn to craft and tell your stories, you become more aware of how your own body language helps you tell the story (or how to move your body to better tell the story) and the body language of others.
  13. Ability to be supportive and motivate others -- which is one of the core purposes for telling stories. Working on stories helps you do this more effectively.


OK, I know storytelling won't solve all the worlds woes, or all the issues at work. But it can take you far! There are more insights to grab in this article so don't miss it.
