Absolutely excellent article that every leader should read!

 

Sharing the Vision so that each employees understands where the company wants to be, what success looks like, who their customers are, what differentiates their company's product/service, and then knows what they can do to contribute is essential.

 

What is that quote:  I tell you ...you may forget, I show you ...you may remember, however, when I involve you ...you will understand. 

 

What do you think?

 

Make it a great day!

Ask Great Questions: Leadership Skills Of Socrates

Ask Great Questions: Leadership Skills Of Socrates | Leadership | Scoop.it

Socrates, this ancient philosopher holds the key to an essential leadership skill: asking great questions. The challenge is that too few leaders, managers and employees ask great questions. This is a big problem. Cultures that embrace a culture of questioning thrive and those that fear it either fail or are doomed to mediocrity.

According to the American Society of Training and Development, U.S. businesses spend more than $170 Billion dollars annually on leadership-based curriculum. My question is this; to what end? Are we producing better leaders or just more people who hold positions of leadership? What makes a leader successful? It seems like we should have the answer by now. However the sad reality is many organizations simply don’t even know where to begin. As you might have guessed, the author has a few suggestions…

The 4 Pillars Of Stable Leadership | Forbes

The 4 Pillars Of Stable Leadership | Forbes | Leadership | Scoop.it

Stability is something we don’t often think about as a leadership quality – that is until it’s absent. 


Via Karin Sebelin

Karin Sebelin's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:59 AM

A lack of stability harms culture, stifles productivity, erodes trust, and makes it extremely difficult to retain top talent.


A humble and resolute confidence, a sure hand, and a steady calm inspire belief in a leader’s competence and capability. Stable leaders not only know where they stand, but they also leave no doubt in the minds of others as to what matters, and what will and won’t be tolerated.


If you want to become a more stable leader, pay attention to the following 4 pillars of stability:


  1. True North: Stable leaders have an open mind, but they also have strong convictions and principles. While stable leaders listen to others, they are not prone to being wishy-washy.Their values drive their actions – not the court of public opinion. You might not always agree with stable leaders, but you’ll never have any doubt as to where they stand. An aligned vision based upon clearly stated values, and the character to hold people accountable to values over outcomes create a high-trust culture. Purpose and people matter more than process and short-term results.
  2. You Play How You Practice: Your performance is always tied to your preparation. Training, development, and continuous life-long learning are the foundational cornerstones of stable leadership.
  3. Lead With Compassion: The most stable leaders understand their success is rooted in the care and well-being of those they lead. Stable leaders have a natural bias toward empathetic and compassionate behavior. When those you lead know you care, it creates a sense of trust and stability not found in more mercenary and callous leaders.
  4. Freedom To Fail: If the people you lead are afraid to make mistakes you’ll never see their best work – you will have led them to perpetual state of mediocrity. Smart leaders make it safe for people to think big, take risks, and try new and different things. Nothing creates stability more than a high-trust environment where people are rewarded for the right behaviors – not punished for them.

Powerful insights from the article: " ...finding mentors is essential to the success of female leaders. New women leaders MUST seek coaches and mentors in order to push ahead, learn what works quickly, and avoid the mistakes of the past. More importantly, coaches and mentors help women forge through and make connections that they may normally not have had." Now read the full article. 

Jillian Stone's comment, August 2, 2013 10:39 AM
I love what Dawniel Winningham said..."In the past, women have been led to believe their success lies in emulating the trait of men in leadership," says Winningham. "I have watched the evolution of women who in the past led by being tough as nails and with no-nonsense attitudes; quite different from the women leaders who are blossoming now who lead with their heart, have a heart for what is fair and just and believe in work life balance; Working hard but still balancing the home life." Finally women are seeing the value of being who they are rather who they think they need to be to compete with men in the marketplace.
