Self-leadership: How good are you in leading yourself?

Self-leadership: How good are you in leading yourself? | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
When most people think of leaders, they think of famous people like Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, or (when talking about toxic leaders), Adolf Hitler. But why not think about ourselves in term of a leader?

In sum, self-leadership theory can provide you with hints on how to increase your productivity. Possibly even more important, it could help you to reflect on your own work and life goals.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 27, 7:06 PM

We probably do not think of this concept, but leading one's self is important in living.  I think this is critical to classroom teachers who often do not have much contact with other adults for the necessary leadership. It is more the way schooling is than by choice.

Stefano Principato's curator insight, April 22, 5:04 PM

The founding father of self-leadership, Charles Manz, defines self-leadership as “leading oneself toward performance of naturally motivating tasks as well as managing oneself to do work that must be done but is not naturally motivating”

It's OK to get Mad - Just Control it! | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Most of us were taught that the only way to lead effectively is to eliminate, or at the very least swallow and hide, emotions like anger and frustration. Go professional or go home, right?

Wrong.

According to research conducted by Henry Evans and Colm Foster, emotional intelligence experts and authors of Step Up: Lead in Six Moments That Matter, the highest performing people -- and highest performing teams -- tap into and express their entire spectrum of emotions.

(From the article): A team isn’t going to accomplish much  if all they are taking on is the easy stuff.  They may feel like they are being “successful” because a lot of boxes are being checked, but it’s an illusion.  All they need to do is stare at their “To Do” lists, and see that doozy staring at them.

 

And that’s the good news in this story -  most teams learn to prioritize well.  What we really need to do is always staring us in the face, at the top of that list.

Did you know that Thanksgiving, through a UN declaration, extends beyond the US to a global harvest festival celebrating communal harmony, peace and brotherhood?

Seven soft skills that every leader should develop

Seven soft skills that every leader should develop | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Business prowess and the ability to command and lead have for a long time been associated with efficient management and leadership, but big changes are on the way. Together with various transitions in business, management is also changing to incorporate more soft skills than ever. A recent study from Harvard Business Review demonstrated that the requirements for a leadership position have shifted to include many soft skills. Here are some of the most important soft skills every manager should develop and cultivate.

(From the article): Humility essentially means that a leader is modest about his or her position in the rank, and refrains from adopting the management style of a power-hungry megalomaniac. A good leader is able to allow others to lead with him, because they know how to balance confidence and humility. Instead of feeding his or her ego with the power and authority that comes with the function, a great leader is able to blend in and set a rhythm for the whole company to follow.

We needn't debate the power of feedback. But, regardless of the possibilities to enhance work and career, its benefits are not always realized. One reason? Individual differences.

A great leader will never allow an employee’s potential to go unnoticed or to lose its momentum .Realizing potential to its fullest often requires breaking through barriers and creating new paradigms. As such, the 21st century employee must see what others don’t, do what others won’t and keep pushing when prudence says quit. Today’s leaders are not just looking for people to do their jobs better, but to recreate their jobs in their own image – discovering new standards along the way to increase productivity, sustainability and opportunities to impact the bottom line.

Great Leaders Develop People

Great Leaders Develop People | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
The ability to actually develop people over time is one of the most significant differences between leaders and managers. Managers have the mindset to do the best they can with the people they have, while leaders learn how to take the people they have and make them better. Most experienced leaders and coaches know that the best way to begin to influence people’s perceptions of themselves is to affirm their talents and value gradually and very persistently. Most people are not used to another person looking at them and actually seeing more talent and more upside than everyone else perceives. This is exactly what exceptional leaders do.
