On Leadership and The Personal Courage Required to Be a Leader

On Leadership and The Personal Courage Required to Be a Leader | The Genuine Leader - Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it

donhornsby's curator insight, August 25, 9:03 AM

(From the article)" A leader is continually asked to make decisions with incomplete and variable data sets. The choices many times are not right or wrong, but differing degrees of good enough with conflicting second and third order effects. This draws many leaders into analysis paralysis where a decision is delayed into nonexistence because of the continual search for a perfect solution.

 

A courageous and dynamic leader knows their worth is determined by their ability to properly analyze situations and take deliberate, calculated risks to move the team forward.

Joe Boutte's curator insight, August 26, 10:37 AM

Courage is indispensable for everyday leadership and making the difficult decisions to lead people to excellence.

Don Cloud's curator insight, August 26, 4:18 PM

It is not enough for a leader to have courage ... rather, the most powerful leaders must both exude courage in the face of danger and more importantly must draw out and energize the courage of their people to face and defeat that danger.

The science behind a happy and productive workforce

The science behind a happy and productive workforce | The Genuine Leader - Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Humans have been fascinated by their own behaviour for thousands of years. Understanding each other has been critical for survival – both as Neanderthals and in today’s corporate world. A successful employee will not only possess the right skills, but their working style often matches their role requirements. However, an individual’s working behaviour type isn’t always apparent on the CV, so how can you gain an additional understanding of whether they’re the right fit for your company

(From the article): Knowing what motivates your staff helps to maintain a productive and happy workforce, making them more likely to stay on board. High dominance individuals tend to be motivated by power and authority and drive results, whilst those with high influence are more likely to be motivated by public praise and recognition. Those with high influence are usually more suited to careers that involve working with others in a talkative environment.

There is one thing you can control, which is your response to others. Reacting, overreacting or letting it fester are not great methods of response. If this is your method of coping with hurt and offense, trust me, you need a new one! Repeating the cycle of offense only intensifies each time you are provoked.

I am a great fan of curation and use Scoop-it on a regular basis to bring together and publish articles and blogs on key areas of interest. One of my curates is called “New Leadership” and a couple of weeks ago one of my Twitter followers asked me what I meant by that. It was a fair question and following the death last year of Margaret Thatcher, it was one which got me thinking about the way that our concept of leadership has changed over the last couple of decades.

A great article from Roger Francis. 

 

(From the article): Finally, I think that people’s expectations have changed dramatically over the last 30 years. The global skills shortage, means that companies can no longer pay lip service to the hackneyed saying “Our people are our most important resource”. Talent retention and development at all levels are now a critical component of any decent strategic plan and this generation of workers will not accept the old, directional styles of leadership. They expect to be consulted and involved in decision-making and empowered to take genuine responsibility – not just simply given a job of work to do. Moreover, if they don’t get what they want, they simply leave. Loyalty is no longer a given.

Wonderful quote from Coach Dan, @DanVForbes the creator of the #LeadWithGiants virtual community.   As usual, Coach Dan helped me find the strength to keep going and re-inspired me in the process.  


From his post:


In, Think and Grow Rich, a book by Napolean Hill, he tells the story of Mr Darby who owned a gold mine during the Gold Rush days in Colorado. Although Mr. Darby unearthed some gold, it wasn’t enough to keep him going.


He worked harder, drilled farther, and dug deeper looking for more gold. He became tired, frustrated, and discouraged.  He began to think, what’s the use?


So, he quit. He gave up on his dream. He forsook his goal. He lost his passion.


In fact, he sold his mining equipment and the mine itself to a prospector for only a few hundred dollars.


Here’s the kicker. Within three feet of the place where Darby quit, the new owner tapped into a gold vein worth millions of dollars.

Thanks Coach!!!!

The way we understand leadership today needs to evolve. Understanding that what you once knew that got you where you are is not enough to keep going is important. Understanding the new responsibilities and expectations of leaders is important. For instance, being a good leader sometimes means being a good follower. And as this article points out, a good leader is a consummate learner. Without that, the things you are leading people to have already passed and others are already on to the next thing.

(From the article): No matter how much potential an employee has, it can remain dormant if not managed rightly and properly nourished with the right ingredients. 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.

(From the article) The Blind CC. Imagine this . . . Someone sends an email to a group and bcc’s someone. Then the bcc’er replies to all, not noticing that they were blind-copied. If you were on the To: or CC: lines, wouldn’t you immediately wonder why the other person was bcc’d to start with? And more importantly, wouldn’t you start to wonder how many times the original person sends emails to you and they are bcc’ing someone else? We all want leaders who are transparent, authentic and genuine – and it seems to me that using the bcc flies in the face of that goal. There might be a time to email something separately to someone and give them additional information or perspective, but why make it a blind copy leaving everyone at risk for miscommunication and misunderstanding?

Amy Melendez's curator insight, July 25, 11:26 AM

From the article:

 

In the end, the other person decides if you are worthy of their trust based on their view of your intent, not your actual intent.

 

One way to read this would be to nod your head and agree, thinking about the people these behaviors remind you of.

 

A much better way to read this would be to reflect on how those behaviors impacted your trust and relationship with those people and then ask yourself the harder question – how often am I compromising trust by doing these things or things like them?

While you're talking, try not to be too guarded. Ask them about their background, interests and past successes. Instead of putting energy into your differences, focus on finding things that you have in common.
