John Michel's curator insight, October 27, 2013 6:31 PM
The first rule of effective leadership is not to ask others to do what you yourself would not. So go first in helping others. Be generous in your willingness to do the little unexpected extras that communicate you are genuinely interested in serving their needs and not just having them satisfy yours.
AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 28, 2013 6:02 AM

Thank you for such a great article John!   There are too many people that feel compassion is either a sign of weakness or is something we should share ONLY with our loved ones. 

 

Great to see that research indicates that managers that show compassion are leaders who develop loyalty, dedication and passion in others!

But really, who better than Hemingway to emulate? Rather than embracing the flowery prose of the literati, he chose to eschew obfuscation at every turn and write simply and clearly.

So let’s see what Ernest can teach us about effective writing.

Being a leader basically requires a whole new mindset. You’re no longer constantly thinking “How can I stand out?” but “How can I help my people do their jobs better?”
Don Cloud's curator insight, November 5, 2013 7:13 AM

This is the most critical transition a new leader must make -- where the leader's and organization's success is now defined by setting your people up for success.  Not all newly appointed leaders make this leap.

Insight - if you're a strong leader helping to challenge the status quo, then it's not a matter "if" you are wrong ... there will come many times "when" you are wrong.  Being humble helps you to "fail forward" (as referenced by many other leadership articles and books) and also helps you to empathize with your subordinates to give them the space to take risks, make mistakes, and for them to "fail forward" as well.

Leadership begins with followership.  And it is in these humble beginnings from which the strongest, more insightful, and more inspirational leaders come.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, October 31, 2013 9:57 PM

To be an effective leader you must have vision but also demostrate submissiveness, humility, and a willingness to follow.  True leadership is relational and inspires people to be the best they can be.  As stated in the article, "Leadership and vision are two things that come naturally to some people, not all. Fortunately, it’s a skill that can be developed in time. It’s not about growing your technical expertise but about learning how to inspire and motivate people."

John Michel's curator insight, November 1, 2013 11:38 AM

All great leaders in today’s society had to start somewhere. If you’re trying to become one, just make sure you have what it takes to be a follower first. Learn from the vast experience of your superiors, master their skills, and adapt their styles to your personality. Leadership skills can be learned, and as long as you have a great teacher, chances are you’ll become a great leader yourself someday.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 17, 2013 9:47 AM

(From the article): As a leader, having difficult conversations with a team member or peer may be one of the hardest responsibilities of your position. Do you put off conversations that you fear will hurt someone's feelings? If so, what did it cost you? Did you feel relief when you finally had the conversation?

Don Cloud's curator insight, October 17, 2013 10:01 PM

Setting your people up for success means being honest with them.  After all, if the first time they receive honest feedback is when they are fired, demoted, passed over for an opportunity, etc, then have you really set them up for success?  Or were you too afraid they might succeed if you hold them accountable and give them the choice and opportunity to improve?

Excellent post by Tal Shnall.  There are many managers and execs that don't follow the steps Tal outlines here.  If and when they walk the talk, focus on culture and communicate values, they start the process of becoming leaders.  

 

Here is my favority section of the post:

 

LEADERS MUST WALK THE TALK 

 

Leaders that sustain a culture of purpose understand the correlation of articulating an inspiring vision and walking the talk of those values in their daily actions.One great company that I know demonstrate that is the Ritz Carlton Hotels.They have daily line ups with their employees to hone the service essentials of their culture, but they also demonstrate and share personal service WOW stories about how they elevated the guest experiences.

Business owners and managers are well served when they hone their public speaking skills.  Good delivery engages your audience and ensures your message is heard.   There is nothing worse than sitting in the audience when the speaker isn't in touch with the audience and delivers their message poorly.
