Super Achievers' Secret Power: Humility

Super Achievers' Secret Power: Humility | Leadership | Scoop.it
BY CAMILLE SWEENEY AND JOSH GOSFIELD 

The very concept of humility can make us queasy. In this self-promotional era of social media flaunting and positive thinking, to be humble can seem at best to put us at a competitive disadvantage, at worst, to seem hollow. As Jane Austen put it, “Nothing is more deceitful than the appearance of humility.”

Herminia Ibarra writes about the authenticity paradox in leadership in the January 2015 edition of HBR.

Some very thought provoking insights in this HBR article by Herminia Ibarra See also my previous scoop on trust. The bottom line for me is that To be or not to be really is the questions and to thine own self be true is the answer regardless of the circumstances.

‘Paths, not works’. A philosopher’s metaphor that explains well our leadership challenges. | Leandro Herrero

‘Paths, not works’. A philosopher’s metaphor that explains well our leadership challenges. | Leandro Herrero | Leadership | Scoop.it

Philosopher Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) requested before his death that the collection of his writings be called ‘Paths, not works’. He had used the word ‘paths’ several times. It provides, according to some interpreters of his ‘works’, an image of ‘leading’ but not necessarily to anywhere in particular; like many paths do in the woods.

Good leaders are good path-makers. Sometimes the journey is not clear. The destination may still be ambiguous. It’s the journey, stupid! Pretending that there is a fixed destination and that you know all the highways, roads and pathways, does not make you a good or better leader.

Chuck Taylor's curator insight, January 26, 6:05 PM

This is very applicable in data sourcing, analytics, and all aspects of digital marketing.

François DEMONGEOT's curator insight, January 28, 9:03 AM

Outsourcing should not be a taboo if done in the right way. Outsource with companies who can do it better than you. reinvest your time and talents in things you are the best placed to do.

Ibrahim Rahmani's curator insight, Today, 4:41 AM

Make your service offerings better with high quality deliverables and decrease the lead time it takes for your product to reach the marketplace. Thus you would be faster in getting your ideas converted into products and better at delivering the value-added proposition.

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work | Leadership | Scoop.it

If there’s one thing that we can all agree on it’s that the world of work is changing…quickly. The way we have been working over the past few years is NOT how are we are going to be working in the coming years. Perhaps one of the most important underlying factors driving this change is the coming shift around who drives how work gets done. Traditionally executives would set the rules and pass those down to managers who in turn would pass those down to employees. But as Dan Pink aptly put it, “talented people need organizations less than organizations need talented people.” In other words employees are now starting to drive the decisions and conversations around how work gets done, when it gets done, who it gets done with, what technologies are being used to get it done, etc. The next few years are going to bring about dramatic changes. But why now? What are the key trends that are driving this new future of work? There are five of them - take a look.

Michael Thiel's curator insight, September 11, 2014 6:53 AM

In den nächsten Jahren wird sich die Arbeitswelt immer mehr verändern aufgrund der mobilen, globalisierten Welt und des daraus resultierenden erhöhten Bedarfs an kollaborativen Verhaltensweisen. Diese Veränderungen rufen nach Führungskompetenzen, die vernetztes, kooperatives Denken in den Vordergrund stellen und Führung als komplexen Prozess betrachten.
