Self-leadership: How good are you in leading yourself?

Self-leadership: How good are you in leading yourself? | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it
When most people think of leaders, they think of famous people like Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, or (when talking about toxic leaders), Adolf Hitler. But why not think about ourselves in term of a leader?

We probably do not think of this concept, but leading one's self is important in living.  I think this is critical to classroom teachers who often do not have much contact with other adults for the necessary leadership. It is more the way schooling is than by choice.

"Your ability to lead yourself will determine how well you lead and inspire others." K. Richardson

Stefano Principato's curator insight, April 22, 5:04 PM

The founding father of self-leadership, Charles Manz, defines self-leadership as “leading oneself toward performance of naturally motivating tasks as well as managing oneself to do work that must be done but is not naturally motivating”

Five Leadership Lessons From Cirque Du Soleil

Five Leadership Lessons From Cirque Du Soleil | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

A leader is no different from the performers at Cirque Du Soleil. As a leader, you need to combine your skills into a single repertoire from which you trust, lead and inspire your team and people around you.  As a leader, you need to push beyond your comfort level, believe in yourself and your team and pave the way forward.

Reflective Questions

Are you ready to lead the way?
What are you doing to create an environment of trust, synergy, mindfulness and grace?
How do you bring your creativity out?
What do you do when you feel stuck and in a rut?
What do you do to excel in what you are talented in?

Citation: "Let us be clear: No human group can survive, let alone effectively cooperate, without being able to develop a shared outlook on the world which is the precondition for acting together. But it is also the case that social groups thrive by making room for plurality, dissenting voices, and different perspectives."

Are You a Thought Leader?

Are You a Thought Leader? | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

Ask.com says that a thought leader is an individual or firm that is recognized as an authority in a specialized field and whose expertise is sought and often rewarded. In a world where information is often it’s own currency, thought leaders are seen as a resource because in order to earn that status, they have made a career of focusing on their primary expertise. Being a thought leader has cachet and, according to Malcolm Gladwell, if you spend 10,000 hours focused on one thing, then you’ll end up being an expert at it.

Good post where Laura Garnett presents us with 5 tips to be a thought leader;

 

1) You have a unique perspective on something universal

2) You are driven to serve the world or people in some way.

3) You are highly motivated and inspire others with your enthusiasm.

4) You are inspired by expansiveness but you are focused on one thing.

5) You love people (you constantly learn with and from them)

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

 

The Drucker School of Management and Wharton Business School both offer courses in mindfulness meditation. Virginia Tech is sponsoring "contemplative practices for a technological society," a conference for engineers who integrate contemplative disciplines into their work. Google offers courses in meditation and yoga

 

Aetna, Merck, General Mills--the list goes on--all are exploring how meditation can help their leaders and employees agilely thrive in today's fast-paced business environment. And the benefits are widely publicized: sustained attention span, improved multi-tasking abilities, strengthened immune system, increased emotional intelligence, improved listening skills...And there is science behind such claims.

When top business schools highlight the importance of mindfulness with courses for future leaders, we now have precedence for including it in educational leadership training.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 15, 2013 7:01 PM

I like the ideas that mindfulness is combined with Peter Drucker's work and that large companies are looking at meditation as something that will benefit employees.
