A truly great leader operates from the soul level, inspired by vision and inner wisdom as opposed to greed. Do you have what it takes to be a great leader?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 14, 2013 9:41 PM

Leadership is about helping a shared vision to emerge. We have an abundance of technicians in our organizations and they are good at telling people what their vision is, but rarely do I see bringing it all together.

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

(From the article): If there was one substantive omission in my earlier post, and one attribute that sets apart really excellent managers from more ordinary ones, it’s this: the willingness and insight to take the time to bring out latent abilities in employees and help them develop talents they sometimes didn’t even know they had.

9 Solid Ways to Reinforce Your Company Values

9 Solid Ways to Reinforce Your Company Values | Leadership | Scoop.it
Your company drafted a set of values for a reason. But as businesses grow and priorities shift, those values can become overlooked or even neglected. Our research found that only 42% of employees know their organization's visions, missions, and values.

Which is totally natural — so don’t sweat it. But if you want your business to grow in accordance to the organizational values you built it on, it’s important to take a step back every so often to see whether you’re sticking to what you set out to accomplish. No matter how close you are to doing that, you can improve by:

From Individual Learning to Organizational Learning

From Individual Learning to Organizational Learning | Leadership | Scoop.it

In the last few years several theoretical models of organizational learning have been developed from the perspective of diverse disciplines. One of the most influential models is that of Crossan, Lane and White (1999), who believe that organizational learning occurs through four processes (intuiting, interpreting, integrating and institutionalizing) and in two ways: from the individual to the organization (feed forward) and from the organization to the individual (feedback). This model, however, attributes to intuiting (defined by the authors as “the preconscious recognition of the pattern and/or possibilities inherent in a personal stream of experience” p. 525) the whole explanation for individual learning, ignoring the influence of conscious learning processes. Zietsma, Winn, Branzei and Vertinsky (2002) introduce two modifications to the model: the process of attending and the process of experimenting. The value of their proposal lies in the recognition of the influence of a conscious process in learning, namely attention. Attending, however, is just one of the many processes that intervene in individual learning. Castaneda and Perez (2005) make a contribution to the original model of Crossan, Lane and White (1999) by redefining individual learning from the perspective of social cognitive theory as developed by Albert Bandura (1986). The result is an integration of human capabilities and learning sub-processes beyond mere intuition that excludes other cognitive processes and forms of conscious learning. Humans have the capacity for symbolization, forethought, learning through modeling, self-regulation and self-reflection. Individual conscious learning includes the process of attention; yet, at the same time (according to Bandura, 1986), it includes three other processes: retention, production and motivation. This paper presents an improvement proposal at the group level of the model, adding two conscious processes: conversation and social modeling. Finally, a case is described with examples of each of the new introduced processes, at the individual and group levels.

Mandela:The art of the authentic leader

Mandela:The art of the authentic leader | Leadership | Scoop.it
At a time of incredible social change, there is much talk about the leadership traits required to drive positive outcomes for humanity. But, inspired by Nelson Mandela’s legacy, we believe that the focus on leadership at this time of volatility and uncertainty is somewhat misplaced – the real challenge is to inspire humanity towards following a path to peace and prosperity for all. 

And Mandela’s story provides insight into how building and sustaining a follower-driven movement can be achieved.
