Leadership Lessons From a Child with Autism

Leadership Lessons From a Child with Autism | Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership has always been a passion for me and after years of study, reading dozens of leadership books, listening to mentors and accumulating great experience on the way to a successful career I have come to understand one thing: I can still learn something new about leadership. In my case, one of the best sources of ongoing leadership lessons is my 15-year-old son who has high functioning autism.

The Values of “Insightfully Aware” Leaders

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, September 22, 5:24 AM

An “insightfully aware” leader has a profound and clear understanding of his or her purpose and the reasons behind it. Self-awareness of values helps leaders to reflect upon their emotions, goals, needs and motives. Individuals who are able to identify and articulate their values will generate meaningful insights about how they see themselves, the circumstances they face, the behaviours they display, and their potential reactions to specific situations. Comprehending their values (personal, work and organisational) enables leaders to know and accomplish what they believe is important.

Great Leaders Lean In

Great Leaders Lean In | Leadership | Scoop.it

The horrific events of September 11th will forever be remembered as one of the first, and certainly the largest terrorist attack on American soil our country has ever seen. America has significantly changed, and since then, our country’s leaders have courageously declared how we will not be intimidated by terror, how we refuse to live in fear, and now most recently, how America will continue to respond to acts of terror. But yet, many of usdo live in fear. Spend 5 minutes watching the local news and you can see an anxious tension in our airports, on our streets and for some, even in our homes. We are a nation whose leaders have tried to perpetuate an emotional state of groundedness, belief, strength, and resolve. As individuals, we truly want to believe our country is grounded, secure and strong. In many ways it is, but that tension still resides doesn’t it

3 Rules of Engagement for Making You and Your Organization Stronger

3 Rules of Engagement for Making You and Your Organization Stronger | Leadership | Scoop.it

A house is only as strong as its foundation. A solid foundation gives the house a firm base allowing for less structural issues over time. This is also true for an organization. A strong foundation allows the organization to maintain an un-fractured workplace where individuals, who make up this foundation, reduce cracks in communication, relationships, and help keep the focus on the goals of the organization. An un-fractured workplace impacts employee engagement, corporate culture, and even the bottom line. The challenge most organizations face when building their behavioral organizational foundation is creating an intentional plan for how to strengthen the human supports of their structure. Rules of engagement can add that extra support, like rebar added to concrete when creating the base of a house

Leadership through conversations

Leadership through conversations | Leadership | Scoop.it

There is the adage, “Managers focus are results; leaders focus on people.” That really should be “leaders focus on results and people,” as in today’s hyper-competitive business environment, we must hit our financial goals or we may not keep our jobs. But how are we going to keep our good people energized and engaged if we don’t invest the time to know them as our team members and what is important to them?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 20, 6:11 PM

Leading and conversations are entangled. Pedagogy, as leading, is about engaging students in complex conversations about curricula. The curricula involved are planned and living. The latter belongs to the historical persons entering classrooms, including teachers, which filter the planned curricula.

Simon Sinek: These Are the 3 Most Valuable Leadership Traits

What are the top qualities of great leaders? It's not a great mystery, said Simon Sinek at the World Business Forum on Wednesday. As the motivational speaker and author explained, it really boils down to three things: selflessness, empathy, and an ability to manage anxiety on your team. Here is a look at each trait, and why it is so valuable for you to cultivate.

Leadership & Creating an Environment of Service

Leadership & Creating an Environment of Service | Leadership | Scoop.it

A lot has been said about the leader as “servant”. I expect, given that it is a relatively young term (having been ‘born’ in 1970), it is also subject to wide interpretation. As such, while some people will experience great results from their efforts to serve, others will consider it a fad that will go away if they ignore it. Still others will make every effort to embrace the notion of the Servant Leader but find themselves exhausted, confused and possibly resentful because people seem to be walking all over them.

So what to do?

Dealing With the Shadow Side of Leadership

Dealing With the Shadow Side of Leadership | Leadership | Scoop.it

Senior executives need exceptional drive and interpersonal skills to push themselves and others to succeed – but under pressure, these qualities can go into overdrive, and lead to catastrophe. So what makes managers act out the darker side of their leadership? How can professionals identify and challenge self-defeating behaviours to ensure that leadership shadows or ‘gremlins’ are disciplined?

Compassion – A Cornerstone In Today's Leadership

Compassion – A Cornerstone In Today's Leadership | Leadership | Scoop.it
Learn why compassion is critical in today's leadership and what 3 measures you can employ to demonstrate compassion in your leadership.

Via donhornsby, Ivon Prefontaine

donhornsby's curator insight, September 24, 10:52 AM

(From the article): This is why compassion is vital in today’s leadership because it’s the key to the internal driving force found within each us to understand what motivates our employees, what matters to them, and how we can connect the work they do to the shared purpose that defines why we do what we do. No doubt this is why studies have shown that compassion in the workplace leads to not only higher levels of employee engagement and job satisfaction, but lower levels of employee absenteeism and burnout.

 

So if compassion is a cornerstone to effective leadership in today’s faster-paced, 24/7 global environment, how can we go about building and strengthening our innate ability to not only empathize, but to be curious about those we lead, and what motivates them to bring their best selves to work?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 24, 11:47 AM

Robert Greenleaf in writing about servant-leadership spoke about the importance of compassion integrating with passion. It is not enough to be passionate about the work we do. It has be done in a humane and human way.

5 Talent Acquisition Trends to Watch

Ultimate Software (#20 on this year’s FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work for list) just released a whitepaper that looks at 5 top talent acquisition trends in today’s market. As much data as we might see on talent acquisition, it’s a perpetually interesting topic to look at because (and Ultimate Software puts it well), “A company can have the right technology, the right infrastructure, the right products and services – yet still fall short of expectations without the right people.” People are the heart and soul of an organization, and attracting, hiring, and engaging the right people for an organization is vital to its growth and success.
