John Michel's curator insight, October 3, 2013 2:40 PM

To be successful, you have to be tenacious. You have to be driven by a purpose. You have to be fearless. Failure is a part of life, but it makes the winning so much sweeter. A true success will see that losing is really just learning what doesn’t work and how to succeed.

Linus J Fernandes's curator insight, October 17, 2013 5:58 AM
"credibility is the outcome of countless actions. It is the result of the combination of what team leaders do (i.e. their behaviours) and how they do it (their attitudes); in other words, how they work and interact with several key actors, not only the team members (players and staff, in our case)."
AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 17, 2013 6:05 AM

Fantastic scoop Roger!  I love the visual AND the material!!

 

Here is one of my favorite sections form the article:

 

“We propose an original model that places particular emphasis on the team leader’s ability to create his/her personal credibility with multiple stakeholders at different levels.”

 

Credibility for team performance


In our research, we find that this credibility derives from several attributes. Every coach has a personal notion of what it means to be credible and how to act, in concrete terms, to be seen as credible. Yet despite these subjective interpretations of the concept of credibility, certain components emerged time and time again.

 

Credibility derives from several perceptions that followers develop toward the team leader. The most frequently cited perceptions are:

 

~Technical competency, which is normally seen as essential, but not sufficient, to be considered credible;
 

~Energy, often associated with the outcome of both enthusiasm and passion;

~ Fairness, which can be seen as a combination of sincerity, spontaneity, and good ethics;


~Consistency of actions and underlying principles across time and situations.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 17, 2013 7:56 AM

(From the article): Successful leadership models in sports can be used in business contexts. The greater the similarity between the specific sports and business teams the more expedient this transposition will be. Managers should think carefully about which particular sport would best serve as their model.

John Michel's curator insight, September 5, 2013 10:53 PM

Leaders who feel their pessimism motivates employees to work harder will find it very hard to reach difficult goals. The workplace already has too many cynics and doubters. Leaders need to create a hopeful environment that inspires employees to do the impossible. These eight behaviors will change your workplace environment and help others see you as a more optimistic leader.

Don Cloud's curator insight, September 6, 2013 6:48 AM

Leaders exude eternal optimism, especially when faced with daunting challenges and problems.  But to clarify, it's not enough just to have a positive attitude -- it's more about shaping perspective and guiding people on what they can do to turn around a bad situation.  It's replacing hopelessness after getting knocked down with how to take the hit and then stand back up and fight.  It is in mobilizing positive action and direction that optimistic leadership works.

Bryce Wettstein's curator insight, September 15, 2013 9:18 PM

This article highlights the benefits of being an optimistic leader in terms of overall happiness and motivation within the workplace. Optimistic leaders tend to receive better production and morale from their employees. This article highlights some tips for becoming or improving optimistic leadership.
