John Michel's curator insight, October 9, 2013 1:43 PM

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 2:57 PM

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

 

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 10, 2013 7:03 PM

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

No matter how well an organization nails its brand positioning, invests in design, grows its digital footprint through engagement and creative campaigns, funds strategies, revamps its membership model, and/or establishes cross-functional teams, the real magic of an organization is realized when employees are able to utilize their top strengths and talents the majority of the time.

More urgent than ever. I have been noticing a change in CPAs in all walks of life (small practice, large firms, mid-market CFOs, public company finance/accounting teams) talking about the need for leadership at all levels. It goes way beyond the obvious need for succession planning. It seems to be driven by the accelerating change and complexity and need for people who can anticipate what's coming around the bend and help mobilize the organization to make the turns and adjust the sails as necessary. It is this kind of leader that I am seeing becoming fast in-demand. What do you see?

Great question.  That said, I would offer only those who serve their people and set them up for success are truly leaders.

 

That is, being self-serving is mutually exclusive to being a leader ... there's no such thing as a "self-serving leader" -- they are just "self-serving."

Truer words were never spoken.

Don Cloud's curator insight, October 3, 2013 11:14 PM

Patricia, thanks for sharing -- I like this a lot.

 

That said, I would offer that the wrong words are highlighted/bolded. 

 

Specifically, the word "bond" is not highlighted/bolded -- and it should be ... when it comes to leadership, it's the most important factor.

 

Powerful bonds distinguish the link between great leaders and their people from good leaders who have a mere relationship with them.  Bonds distinguish strong leaders who are committed and "all in" versus average leaders who are merely involved.  Bonds between leaders and followers will energize people to act on their own for the greater purpose ... the "why" of the group.  These bonds are the sinew between leader, followers, and greater purpose that combine in a way that the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts -- that are planted, nurtured, grown, and developed -- that transform a mere collection of people into a living organism that we call an organization.

 

Just sharing a thought that struck me as I pondered the profound meaning of this slide.  Thanks again!

(From the article): Leadership has one definition: leaders are willing to sacrifice themselves for their people. As a senior leader you have to extend the circle wider, and if you have 3 people that work for you, your job is to work for them.

 

Real leaders are the very few willing to sacrifice themselves for their people. When they do, we will do anything to see that our leader's visions are advanced.
