(From the article): Keep it simple. Life is complicated enough. Clients and colleagues expect us to be expert enough to keep things simple and easy to follow. It’s a constant struggle to focus more on the story you’re trying to tell than on the slides. But by reminding myself and my team that we’re sitting down with a client to have a nice conversation, we might be able to avoid coming across as the type of people who overly complicate things or act in a way that’s self-important.

In a world filled with agencies, most of which offer the same services at roughly the same prices, the ultimate difference between success and failure is whether people want to work with your teams or not. It’s the same on the inside.

Super infographic for improving communication within an organization.  I know when you go through the infographic you will probably say... I already know that.

 

While you may not be in the position to change the way your entire organization communicates, involves, and engages wtih everyone, you do have control over how you communicate with your team.

 

So, after you go through the infographic and article ask yourself  What should I do?  What do I do? how do I know that effective communicate is really happening?

 

Moving forward, what will I do differently?  Until next time.. .PS - Be on Brand & Live on Purpose!

Careers rarely follow a smooth, linear trajectory. If you’re experiencing a stalled or faltering career — and most of us do at some point or another — take a good look in the mirror.

The Mirror Test - Why Self-Awareness Is the Secret Weapon for Habit Change

The Mirror Test - Why Self-Awareness Is the Secret Weapon for Habit Change | Leadership | Scoop.it

More than we’d probably like to admit so many of our days are spent in a state of self-delusion, an internal monologue of justifying our actions, both good and bad. When we do something wrong, our evolutionary instincts kick in and we do anything we can to not acknowledge the obvious: sometimes, it’s all our fault.

Know yourself before you  lead others. Understand why you respond as you do and  its affect on others.  Honesty about yourself can be hard but in the end it is worth it

Over time, this becomes our routine, our default reaction, and we fail to stop and reflect on what we’re doing. To make it even more difficult, many of us don’t have the luxury of someone being accountable for us (who does?), helping us recognize our mistakes and their repercussions.

Leadership Ethics: It Doesn't Depend

Imagine recent outcomes at GM, and Toyota before it, if some frontline engineer – or even assembly line worker – used the company Intranet to say "Hey, CEO, there’s a fundamental design problem with (fill in the blank),” …and the CEO stopped production while the glitch was fixed, even if that meant months of stalled production.

To be a leader, you have to have a purpose and people who want to follow you over that purpose. You do not study to become a leader. Your purpose in life is the start of it all. No purpose, nothing to lead forward. What is your purpose ?

There are perhaps many good questions leaders ask of their teammates each and every day. The starter list above could easily be replaced with ten others. These ten, however, represent the ten that have served me well over the last eighteen years as a senior leader. They solicit open conversation, deter quick “yes/no” responses, and maintain meaningful communication channels with the team. 

John Michel's curator insight, November 10, 2014 12:54 PM

The ability to ask great questions is a critically important skill for leaders. Questions determine the answer, and the course of a conversation. The moment a question is asked, the entire course of events can change. A well worded question is truly THAT powerful.

Charlotte Hitchcock's insight:

My experience of many in leadership roles has been of individuals who wish to be seen as perfect, in control and  not in need of help or advice, even when this is  blatantly untrue. This article explains the  positive effect of allowing yourself to be seen as human. In the NHS many criticise the softer side of management &  see it as poor leadership. To me, this is the leadership we need to encourage if we are to grow into  forward thinking, unified organisatiions.  This article validates the need to see leadership as a  more iemotionally intelligent role

John Michel's curator insight, July 21, 2014 12:03 PM

Unless employees feel positively reinforced, quality and other measures can suffer, and it will be nearly impossible to measure the loss of the disengaged and unapplied talent.

Mike Klintworth's curator insight, July 22, 2014 11:03 AM

Most people describe their best bosses by how they made them to feel rather than by what their manager actually said or did.
