We need more leaders who are willing to serve in their leadership.

Don Cloud's curator insight, October 5, 2013 1:09 PM

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."

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, October 2, 2013 6:52 PM

Not surprising but still needs more exploration by authentic leaders, the key is that one can overpower the tendency to quelsh empathy in their roles. But it is not easy nor is it often truly understood.

Chris Brown's curator insight, October 2, 2013 11:05 PM

"Whether you're with a team at work [or] your family dinner, all of that hinges on how we adapt our behaviors to the behaviors of other people, and power takes a bite out of that ability, which is too bad."

 

A powerful statement.  How can we keep focused on connecting to others so we don't become less empathetic?

Totally agree with John Michel's insight. 

 

I highly recommend feedback that serves, as  a tool that may help.  There are some bad bosses who may be unaware of how they are negatively affecting others. 

 

Some, not all, but some.

3 Success Factors for High Performance Teams, and What Gets In the Way

3 Success Factors for High Performance Teams, and What Gets In the Way | If you lead them, they will follow! | Scoop.it

Leadership today has evolved greatly.  Our systems for supporting high performance and leadership in teams and in entire organizations has not kept up with the times."

At a recent workshop with JVS in Southfield Michigan, I shared some of the research and practical organization experience I’ve collected on high performance teams. 

 

As we hear of findings and new development from “big data” AND “small data” (highly personalized, tracked), it is also good to explore how access to performance data can inform leadership at all levels and encourage team achievement and speed, especially when old practices that slow and interfere with performance are removed.

 

Also keep in mind the differences between true teams vs. psuedo-teams  and groups.  Many project and task groups are assembled as teams to accomplish a charge or purpose.    Sometimes these groups or teams: 

produce an innovation or breakthrough success for their organizations, are formed based on a favorite interest or pet project idea of an executive that, in hindsight, provides limited value to their organization.

I agree Ivon, so many important nuggets in this article. I particularly like: If you’re afraid of failing, you won’t get very far,” Jobs once said. “Most people never pick up the phone and call. Most people never ask, and that’s what separates the people who do things from the people who just dream about them."

Quotes are always good to read upon and some people act on them and some people tries to follow and most people forget after reading them and move on. That's the fate of the quotes by all learned people. They look good on reading it.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, August 14, 2013 8:21 PM

This is a fantastic resource.

 

From the article:

 

Burns, the Grand Father of transformation leadership, defines it as a “Process of engaging with others in such a way as to raise leader and follower to higher levels of motivation and morality.” He contrasts this to,

“A false conception of leadership as mere command and control.

 

As leadership comes properly to be seen as a process of leaders engaging and mobilizing human needs and aspirations of followers, women will be more readily recognized as leaders and men will change their own leadership styles.”

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, August 15, 2013 2:15 AM

Any leadership style has situational problems that have to be balance or more fluid with application and implementation.

~ buliding a culture and a movement by using the social web
