Leaders set the tone.  It's seldom "do or die"

donhornsby's curator insight, January 29, 2013 9:20 AM

(From the article): So when you approach a new task, do you expect (perhaps deep down) to be able to do the work flawlessly, no matter how challenging it might be?  Are you focused on being good, rather than getting better?
 

If so, then here are three steps to shifting your mindset, and freeing yourself from The Fear of Mistakes:

(Not from the article): The three steps as outlined by the article are helpful to think through when approaching a new project.

I would add "being willing to be wrong" to the Collabortative Spirit on the list.  Many managers get hung up on being right instead of accepting their mistakes and allowing others to lead.  

 

From the article:

 

1. Authenticity: Every leader faces the temptation to project a persona rather than be themselves. They think that to maintain the confidence of their team, they must appear faultless, flawless and wise. Yet most organizations need an authentic leader, not a perfect one. Today's leader must develop the art of self-awareness.

 

Quit trying to emulate someone else and start being yourself. Share and be honest about your own struggles.

 

By doing this, you'll immediately gain influence.

When we were babies the world was our oyster. When we wanted something we were determined to get it!  Nothing and no-one could prevent us from achieving our goal. If asking didn’t work, we would try ‘puppy’ eyes. Then shouting. Then crying.  Throwing ourselves onto the floor in a tantrum would be an option too. And then we would go back to asking nicely. But we wouldn’t stop until we got exactly what we wanted.

Thought provoking and promotes the idea that leaders need to be brave enough to welcome dissention.

David Keuning's curator insight, May 25, 2013 2:39 PM

It is so important to teach your employees to speak truth to power.  If your management team has 10 people and they ALL agree with you ALL of the time, then 9 are redundant.  It's the ability to harnass a variety of perspectives that distinguishes a high performing team.

John Michel's curator insight, April 10, 2013 8:04 AM

In 2009, Steve McKee published “When Growth Stalls” in which he notes that 41.2% of nearly 5,700 companies he studied stalled in the previous decade. The number of reasons why are staggering, namely: a failure to focus, no competitive point of difference, and weak brand images and identities, to name just a few.

Given this reality, we can turn to science to explain why businesses stagnate. Growing research from the neurosciences and cognitive sciences reveal that change really is difficult for humans. Resistance comes from three forces:

8. They let employees have the ideas.

 

Years ago I worked in manufacturing and my boss sent me to help move the production control offices. It was basically manual labor, but for two days it put me in a position to watch and hear and learn a lot about how the plant's production flow was controlled.

I found it fascinating and later I asked my boss if I could be trained to fill in as a production clerk. Those two days sparked a lifelong interest in productivity and process improvement.

Years later he admitted he sent me to help move their furniture. "I knew you'd go in there with your eyes wide open," he said, "and once you got a little taste I knew you'd love it."

Remarkable bosses see the potential in their employees and find ways to let them have the ideas, even though the outcome was what they intended all along.




donhornsby's curator insight, February 18, 2013 8:33 AM

(From the article): Remarkable bosses don't scold or dictate; they work together with an employee to figure out what happened and what to do to correct the mistake.

 

They help find a better way, not a disciplinary way.

 

Great employees don't need to be scolded or reprimanded. They know what they did wrong.

 

Sometimes staying silent is the best way to ensure they remember.

Communication: Four occasions when it's best to keep quiet | Leadership And Development | Scoop.it

American actor Will Rogers once said, “Never miss a good chance to shut up.”

 

I think he has a point. Rarely, though, do we consider that effective communication also means keeping quiet. Nothing can be more effective in reaching understanding than a well-placed pause, a time when we step back and listen, not only to others but also to ourselves.

3 Reasons to Grow the Talent You Have Into the Leaders You Need

3 Reasons to Grow the Talent You Have Into the Leaders You Need | Leadership And Development | Scoop.it

While many organizations are recruiting leaders from competitors (with cost per hire only rising), few are doing much to develop the talent they have into the leaders they need.

 

Here’s what I don’t understand: Why is the process of finding a leader – whether to backfill someone or to fill a new role – often treated as an isolated event rather than an ongoing process?

Leadership development is key to the success of any organisation.  Seems obvious really.  What is not so obvious is that those that come from within often have a much better "heart" for the organisation than those that are brought in specifically for a role.  We should not lose sight of that.

(From the article): Authenticity — what is it, who has it, and how do you get it? Most people associate authenticity with being true to oneself — or "walking the talk." But there's a problem with that association; it focuses on how you feel about yourself. Authenticity is actually a relational behavior, not a self-centered one. Meaning that to be truly authentic, you must not only be comfortable with yourself, but must also comfortably connect with others.
