Why Character Matters 

Why Character Matters  | Leadership | Scoop.it
Character matters. Character can be learned and needs to be practiced in order to be cultivated.  Character, defined simply, is the way someone thinks, feels and behaves.  Character is fundamental to how we engage with the world, who we engage with, how we act and make decisions, and what we notice and reinforce.

What are the behavioural habits that allow you to have the character of a leader worth following?   Philosophers have used the term virtues as a way of describing the behaviours, values and traits of good character.  A leading scholar in leadership character, Professor Mary Crossan, identifies 10 virtues of leaders who focus on long-term performance of their organization, and the organizational impact when these virtues are present.

Want to be a better leader? Observe more and react less | McKinsey & Company

Want to be a better leader? Observe more and react less | McKinsey & Company | Leadership | Scoop.it

Most time-strapped executives know they should plan ahead and prioritize, focus on the important as much as the urgent, invest in their health (including getting enough sleep), make time for family and relationships, and limit (even if they don’t entirely avoid) mindless escapism. But doing this is easier said than done, as we all know—and as I, too, have learned during years of trying unsuccessfully to boost my effectiveness.

In my case, I stumbled upon an ancient meditation technique that, to my surprise, improved my mind’s ability to better resist the typical temptations that get in the way of developing productive and healthy habits. Much in the same way that intense, focused physical activity serves to energize and revitalize the body during the rest of the day, meditation is for me—and for the many other people who use it—like a mental aerobic exercise that declutters and detoxifies the mind to enhance its metabolic activity.

Overloaded executives need coping mechanisms. This personal reflection shows how meditation can help. Respond rather than react. LIstening attentively is a response.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 7, 2:28 AM
Manish has writtern a wonderful article that suggests how one can be a better leader. While the adage, observe more react less is true, the means of doing this would require not reacting immediately, or even postponing decision making for another day. Meditating, relaxing by taking a break, and I guess 'sleepiong over the problem could be a great help.  It has been noticed that knee-jerk reactions to e-mails and other correspondences might cause more harm than good!
rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 7, 2:35 AM
Manish states very clearrly that it is not a good idea to react immediately to e-mails and make immediate decisions. Sometimes it is better to 'sleep over' over the problem! Taking a vacations before making a decision might help too!

Successful leaders know the importance of communication. Lolly Daskal presents 9 key communication habits that great leaders use for success with their teams and themselves.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 23, 9:39 AM
(From the article): Use the power of "I" statements.

Communication becomes more productive when you avoid stating your thoughts as facts. For example, instead of saying, "This project is a failure," you might say, "I am very concerned about the sustainability of this project." Try to avoid "you" statements ("You haven't done anything") that set up a cycle of judgment and defensiveness. Instead, say, "I can see there's still a lot to be done."  

Cameron Larsuel's curator insight, February 23, 10:06 PM

Communication is key to leveraging the potential of the human experience.
