LEADERSHIP: LOWLY BUT CHOSEN - Pope Francis ... a real voice for the voiceless and the vulnerable

LEADERSHIP: LOWLY BUT CHOSEN -     Pope Francis ... a real voice for the voiceless and the vulnerable | Leadership to Inspire | Scoop.it

We long for spiritual guidance and moral leaders. And the pope becomes a visible representation of that longing. “Lowly But Chosen”, are the words that make up the moto of Archbishop Begoglio’s archdiocese in Argentina.

 

How will Pope Francis lead?

 

1. Without Pretension.  You have probably heard the stories of Archbishop Bergoglio choosing to take public transportation in Argentina rather than a limo. He chose to live in a small city apartment rather than the royal trappings fit for a Cardinal. His first public message as pope was to request prayers for himself from the masses, rather than declaring a papal blessing over those who had gathered.

 

2. With Compassion.  As a Jesuit, Archbishop Bergoglio made much of meeting the needs of the downtrodden and neglected. Kim Daniels, Director of Catholic Voices USA, stated “He is a real voice for the voiceless and the vulnerable. 

 

3. With Conviction. Archbishop Bergoglio is known to have had his differences with elected officials. He has had several run ins with the current President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez. When he believes he has seen injustice his voice is raised.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, April 6, 2:56 PM

From the post:

A leader is nothing to do with rank. Leadership is a choice. Anyone who puts their self interest aside to protect the people next to them and improve things around them is a leader. It is therefore important to note that not all people in authority are leaders. Some are there entirely to look out for no one else but themselves. This is not leadership.

Humility and humus share a common root.

John Michel's curator insight, July 8, 2013 11:34 PM

Dropping our self-importance and replacing it through humility leads to inner silence. We are able to see the world with clear eyes. And we see ourselves more clearly as we are. We no longer compare to others and we see others as equal. Humble people don’t see the own success as most important. They help others to become successful, too.

Article by Gary Hamel and Polly LaBarre

In order to engage in a conversation about leadership, you have to assume you have no power — that you aren't "in charge" of anything and that you can't sanction those who are unwilling to do your bidding. If, given this starting point, you can mobilize others and accomplish amazing things, then you're a leader. If you can't, well then, you're a bureaucrat.

What are the attributes of individuals who can inspire others and multiply their impact?

1.) They are seers — individuals who are living in the future, who possess a compelling vision of "what could be." 

2.) They are contrarians — free-spirited thinkers who liberate us from the status quo and open our minds to new possibilities.

3.) They are architects — adept at building systems that elicit contribution and facilitate collaboration. 

4.) They are mentors — rather than hoarding power, they give it away. They believe the primary job of a leader is to create more leaders. They coach, tutor, challenge and encourage.

5.) They are connectors — they help others achieve their dreams by connecting them with sponsors, like-minded peers, and complementary resources.

6.) They are bushwhackers — they clear the trail for new ideas and initiatives by chopping away at the undergrowth of bureaucracy. 

7.) They are guardians — vigilant defenders of core values and enemies of expediency. Their unflinching commitment to a higher purpose inspires others and encourages them to stand tall for their beliefs.

8.) They are citizens — true activists, their courage to challenge the status quo comes from their abiding commitment to doing as much good as possible for as many as possible. They are other-centered, not self-centered.

All these roles are rooted in the most potent and admirable human qualities — passion, curiosity, compassion, daring, generosity, accountability and grit. These are the qualities that attract allies and amplify accomplishments. These are the DNA strands of 21st century leadership.

Gandhi's 10 Rules for Changing the World, by Henrik Edberg

Gandhi's 10 Rules for Changing the World, by Henrik Edberg | Leadership to Inspire | Scoop.it
Change the world; we hear those words thrown around quite frequently, and to some, the notion seems incredulous. However, if we take an inner approach, rather than an outer one, and transform our individual selves into adopting the qualities we wish to see in the world, then the task at hand won't seem as daunting. In the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi, "As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world -- that is the myth of the atomic age -- as in being able to remake ourselves." In this article, the Positivity Blog's, Henrik Edberg, addresses Gandhi's top ten fundamentals for changing the world.

Karin Sebelin's curator insight, August 6, 2013 6:46 AM

It is so easy to make a judgment about other people – and we too often believe to know what other people might think and how they might react. But the truth is, we never really know what others see and how others feel. We only know our feelings and our point of view exactly and with absolute certainty.


Although we may believe that we instinctively understand how another person feels, it is probably never true. Each human being is different, each of us is unique – in his feelings and in his kind of thinking, we all have different backgrounds and instincts. Two apparently similar people can react in very different ways.


Showing empathy for others is certainly good and always to recommend, but we should learn that the same empathy for two different persons can indeed lead to different results and both can react totally different. We are never sure how others perceive our feelings and our point of view.


Therefore we cannot set up a general rule how to treat other people or how to effectively communicate with others. We can only give some good advice and useful tips.

 

What we should learn:


WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW OTHER PEOPLE SEE THEIR WORLD!

WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW OTHERS SEE US!

NEVER ASSUME TO KNOW OTHER PEOPLE!

We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ~ John Lennon

Thanks Robin, I have to admit I caught myself many times doing this when I started using leadership development tools and trying to improve the trust level with my staff members. As anyone can lead, we can all challenge our own assumptions and help develop trust with others. When we do this, the process of influencing positive change becomes much easier.
