Test Yourself: Is Your Inner House in Order?

Test Yourself: Is Your Inner House in Order? | Leadership | Scoop.it

Like most good ideas, this one came far away from work.

 

Steve Mundahl, CEO of Goodwill Industries and author of "The Alchemy of Authentic Leadership," was on a fishing vacation in Northern Minnesota when he started pondering his life and asking himself if all its elements were in balance. "I asked myself, do I have enough fun in my life, and enough creative expression?" he says. Although he was on vacation on that moment he realised that in general the answer was no.

 

It was a gap he needed to fill because without making room for all the different parts of himself to flourish--physical and spiritual health, leisure, creativity, and family as well as money and career--he knew he couldn't be the complete human being he needed to be to lead effectively.

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.”

Why Your Workplace Might Be Killing You

Why Your Workplace Might Be Killing You | Leadership | Scoop.it

Workplace stress — such as long hours, job insecurity and lack of work-life balance — contributes to at least 120,000 deaths each year and accounts for up to $190 billion in health care costs, according to new research by two Stanford professors and a former Stanford doctoral student now at Harvard Business School.

“If employers are serious about managing the health of their workforce and controlling their health care costs, they ought to be worried about the environments their workers are in,” says Jeffrey Pfeffer, a Stanford professor of organizational behavior. Pfeffer, with colleagues Stefanos A. Zenios of Stanford GSB and Joel Goh of Harvard Business School, conducted a meta-analysis of 228 studies, examining how 10 common workplace stressors affect a person’s health.

The tools are important, just make no mistake in the process steps: First you have to analyze the situation, then define what action will be taken and finally choose the tool. But! What happens if done backwards? First a tool is selected, then identifies that could be done with it, to finally find a need and / or problem we have. What do you think?

‘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.
