The Best Leaders Make Unforgettable First Impressions

The Best Leaders Make Unforgettable First Impressions | Leadership | Scoop.it
Leaders that try too hard to win people over are the ones that end up losing the respect of their employees – especially when it’s not genuine. The most memorable leaders know how to naturally make a good first impression. They are mindful of what most employees do and don’t expect of them and want to create for them a safe environment that enables engagement. Leadership success is all about people and when leaders forget this fact, they are headed down a path of self-destruction. Here are 14 things every leader should consider if they want to make an unforgettable first impression. Read them carefully and ask yourself which ones you are doing and which ones you still need to introduce.

6 Ways Leaders Unknowingly Undervalue Their Employees

6 Ways Leaders Unknowingly Undervalue Their Employees | Leadership | Scoop.it
Leaders often find themselves getting lost within the growing demands of the workplace and losing sight of what matters most to their employees. As such, they fail to realize the negative repercussions that the lack of strategic focus can have on their ability to deepen relationships with employees, which is important to understanding their specific needs for success. As a consequence, employees begin to lose trust in leaders that they perceive as self-absorbed, complacent and only concerned about their own well-being – rather than interested in advancing the people they are responsible for leading.

These are good ways to help to begin to be an emotionally intelligent leader. I like the fifth way:  "Able to check their ego and allow others to shine", but all five are good ways to improve everyday leadership.

Leading Effectively Begins with Mindfulness

Leading Effectively Begins with Mindfulness | Leadership | Scoop.it
Your second quarter is coming to an end and your sales team isn't closing the deals it's forecasted. As expenses outweigh the current cash flow, your CEO is forced to prune the organization and puts the pressure on you to perform. You take the stand and demand immediate compliance from your team and explicitly set a high standard for performance -- will this leadership style yield the results you require?

Empathy and Good Managers

Empathy and Good Managers | Leadership | Scoop.it

The traditional view of management is to drive results at all costs. Be hard on employees and they will perform. That employees’ personal lives don't matter, as they have nothing to do with work. Yet we know today that employees’ personal and professional lives do collide. Today’s workplace environment calls for an evolved way of management and of leadership. Today’s managers need to tap into other motivators to get results and inspire the best performance from employees.

This is an interesting interview and video on authenticity in leadership.

 

(KEY QUOTE)  So, traditionally in leadership studies, we tend to focus on styles or actions of leaders, which of course are important. But I think the way research is going, and what we are really uncovering now, is almost as important is the identity of the leader. Because of course if we think of leadership, the counter is followership, and how do we invoke followership? It is often invoked when people see in the leader a piece of themselves. So it is not just about influence and providing a vision, it is about representation. So does this person represent me as an individual? If I feel that they do, they have shared concerns, I am much more likely to follow them and to, if you like, give them leadership or an authority in the group.
