In Conversation with Chris Atkinson: The Transformational Leader

Elysian Training's insight:

Elysian Training is very happy to be featured on the cover of Realizing Leadership this month.

“If people listen to you, if they’re choosing to follow you – your words, your ideas – you’re a leader regardless of your position and that’s fundamentally misunderstood because we associate the word leader with those people with power..” 
~ Chris Atkinson

The debate about whether these earth-shaking leaders are born or made will continue to rumble on, not least because they’re so apparently rare. Then again, it often only takes one person at the top to kickstart an organisation into action.

Still a lot of work to do to get leaders for our times! Isn't it ?

Ian Berry's curator insight, May 20, 8:42 PM

Transformation is an outcome of a series of transitions. We don't need transformational leaders. We need leaders willing and able to co-create the transitions and who appreciate and help people to be accountable as the transitions are executed.

Why Well-Being Is a Skill That Can Be Learned

Why Well-Being Is a Skill That Can Be Learned | Leadership | Scoop.it

 Richard J. Davidson 


4. Caring for others. Prosocial behaviors such as empathy, compassion and gratitude comprise another component of well-being.

 

There's substantial evidence to suggest that engaging in acts of generosity is a very effective strategy to increase well-being. I call it a double positive whammy because, by being generous to others, you benefit them and yourself.

 

Studies, including one from our lab, show that compassion training -- a form of meditation in which one generates positive wishes for another being -- primes a person's ability to empathize with others and to engage in pro-social behavior aimed at decreasing others' suffering.

How to manage a new generation of leaders

How to manage a new generation of leaders | Leadership | Scoop.it
The new generation of leaders often has a completely different way of working from their older counterparts.

For example, while boomers usually view long hours as evidence of loyalty and hard work, Generations X and Y try to have more work/life balance. They've seen their parents' lack of quality of life, and the lack of loyalty companies showed to these hard-working parents in the 1990s, and they're not impressed.

They want flexible hours, more vacation time, continuous training, and telecommuting options. They expect to leverage technology to work efficiently, instead of staying late in the office to get everything done.

Crowdsourcing Leadership

Crowdsourcing Leadership | Leadership | Scoop.it
Management gurus tell us what leadership is…and isn't. Years of research have taken us from employee-driven quality control, to empowerment, to "followership." By "turning the pyramid upside down," many of these approaches encourage employees to do what they think is best to serve customers, improve processes and innovate. Beyond these, however, in the age of closer and closer connectedness we are seeing a new organizational phenomenon. We call it crowdsourcing leadership.
Much like composer Eric Whitacre, who uses crowdsourcing to splice together individual singers' voices to create masterful choral works (albeit with digital technology), business leaders are increasingly asking employees to lend their voices—and talents—to the chorus of direction and leadership.

Feedback at every level is critical to the success of an organization.
