Learning from the Persuasive Genius of Great Leaders

Learning from the Persuasive Genius of Great Leaders | Inspirational Leadership | Scoop.it

Great leaders look for empowering frames and communicate them explicitly, to ensure others understand their intent and interpret their actions through the new lens, rather than old frames.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 23, 2015 9:42 PM

The art of framing is an essential skill for executives who want to motivate and inspire.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 24, 2015 9:35 AM

(From the article): Every conversation, every communication, and every decision begins with a frame. When we provide a context that expands our thinking, includes others, and gives meaning to our efforts, we help spark creativity and insight in ourselves, our peers, and our leaders. Perhaps that explains the old Disney company joke encouraging its animators and designers to challenge a limiting frame:

 

“How many Imagineers does it take to change a lightbulb?”

 

“Does it have to be a lightbulb?”

(From the article): We’re in a world full of opportunities. Some of them look scary, but they are definitely out there to make our world a better place. Every stage of the emotional roller coaster is normal and to be expected. When you are mindful and manage the emotions consciously, you can become the change you want to see in the world.

Why Leadership Should Be Hard

Why Leadership Should Be Hard | Inspirational Leadership | Scoop.it

Today’s organizations need leaders who don’t let their limitations define them.

 

Rather, they use their limitations as a guide to help them seek out those around them who can help them to rise above these limitations and in the process, help us to create a future that we all want to be a part of.

 

In other words, we need leaders who don’t shy away from discomfort because they know that it’s only in those moments where we think that we can do better that we are truly driven to make things better

(From the article): Leadership can no longer be viewed as another rung up the career ladder, as something that is positionally ascribed because of the role we play in our organization. Instead, we need to view leadership for what it is – a calling to inspire, enable and motivate those around us to believe we can do things better; we can make things better than they are today.

 

We need leaders who recognize that to engage people in the work they do requires the willingness to truly listen and understand the realities of those under their care. Of what it is that would make people feel like they’re making a difference – that what they do matters and is meaningful – and then connecting that to the greater purpose that defines our organization.

John Michel's curator insight, December 10, 2014 9:45 AM

Management is Not a Promotion | LinkedIn | Inspirational Leadership | Scoop.it
For instance, if you have a software engineer who is phenomenal at implementing relevance algorithms absolutely does not mean that he or she should be managing other people. So many companies reward fantastic contributors by moving them to management, to the detriment to both the individual and the company.

Whenever your company tries to force people into a role that they don't have the skills for, it becomes a huge liability.

10 Steps To Effective Listening

10 Steps To Effective Listening | Inspirational Leadership | Scoop.it

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems. Listening builds friendships and careers. It saves money and marriages.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 10, 2014 1:14 PM

I think everyone has the chance to achieve excellence, but many of us are in the wrong roles. My experience in education was that many of our managers were not leaders and not innovative. They had their personal idea about what needed to get done and heaven forbid classroom teachers contradicted them. Managing and leading are intertwined and when we overload one way or the other it is not good.

David Barrett's curator insight, April 11, 2014 9:53 AM

That’s the secret in how successful leaders show up in those daily interactions – because their focus is not internalized on what they want to accomplish, but on what they want us to achieve. Through this intentional, outward focus on those around them, they’re able to encourage and enable us to commit ourselves to living up to our potential to be better than we are today.

What Makes a Leader?

What Makes a Leader? | Inspirational Leadership | Scoop.it
It was Daniel Goleman who first brought the term “emotional intelligence” to a wide audience with his 1995 book of that name, and it was Goleman who first applied the concept to business with his 1998 HBR article, reprinted here. In his research at nearly 200 large, global companies, Goleman found that while the qualities traditionally associated with leadership—such as intelligence, toughness, determination, and vision—are required for success, they are insufficient. Truly effective leaders are also distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence, which includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 20, 2014 12:59 PM

A key is when asking questions is to listen deeply. I read Parker Palmer and use his work in my writing. The key person to question and listen to is one's self. This requires quietness that we do not find in the hectic pace of daily life. It is a meditative space when we listen to our self and to others.

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, March 20, 2014 3:46 PM

Effective questions are those that accomplish their purpose as well as build a positive relationships. Questions that work should build a deeper and better understanding of the problem and possible solutions, but should also construct better working relations among the problem solvers.  Edgar Schein in his book Humble Inquiry: The Gentle Art of Asking Instead of Telling promotes the kind of inquiry that comes from an attitude of interest and curiosity. Inviting others to tell their story in their own words helps to establish rapport, gather information and increase understanding.

 

Humble Inquiry changes the quality of listening from confirming habitual judgments and the focus on the factual/objective data to more empathic and generative listening (Otto Scharmer) and greater humility. My whole being is able to slow down and to be present when I can suspend my judgment and enter into the question at a deeper level. 

ozziegontang's curator insight, May 5, 2014 5:00 AM

Lee would simply share: The role of the leader is to be a virtuoso question-asker.  Questions open. Answers close.

Overcoming Challenges of Personal Change

Overcoming Challenges of Personal Change | Inspirational Leadership | Scoop.it

Leaders have to learn and practice new leadership behaviours to overcome some of the habits that are limiting their current or future effectiveness.

 

Executives’ efforts to develop new behaviours often perturb the equilibrium situation they had reached with members of their ecosystem, who are often unwilling and/or unable to change their own behaviour in ways that would support the executives’ efforts.

 

Understanding these four challenges doesn’t make the change easy, but it makes it easier for executives to accept that the change process is demanding and they must hence approach it with courage and persistence. It also helps to identify four pillars that can be extremely useful to executives who want to modify some aspect(s) of their leadership style.
