The End of Blah Blah Blah – end those useless meetings full of talk « Business Model Alchemist | Leadership with a splash of empathy | Scoop.it

"My biggest learning from working with senior executives, consultants and entrepreneurs around the globe was that we waste a lot of time with talking without necessarily understanding each other. This happens because we just use words, without using visual concepts and tools that could facilitate the conversation."

From Human Resources to Human Results | Leadership with a splash of empathy | Scoop.it

Why are we stuck in the way we've always done it with regard to Human Resources? Let's be serious - we all know that HR isn't exactly the highest priority in our business. All too often HR is brushed aside as an overhead function that's mostly about administering and organizing. A necessary evil.

It's time for that paradigm to shift. Big Time.

Effective Management: Extroverts vs. Introverts

The workplace is a melting pot of personalities--no surprise there! All types of employees must work together and are expected to overcome personal differences to reach a common goal. But ethics, cultural norms, and temperament can sometimes cause friction.

 

Let's discuss temperament. All employee groups will exhibit two main types: introverts and extroverts. Each type can interact very differently in the workplace. One may be better suited for leadership than the other. But can you always tell which is which?

(From the article): Leaders who rely on their imagined power over others will not thrive. The leaders who succeed will be what they term "altrocentric," and focus on others rather than themselves. They'll be relationship-centric, prefer engaging rather than commanding, and consistenyl act as though they, too, are part of the team.

Our Dire EQ Gap

Our Dire EQ Gap | Leadership with a splash of empathy | Scoop.it

The news media regularly reports on yet another famous individual caught out in inappropriate, injudicious behavior. This includes leaders in industry and government as well as ‘stars’ in entertainment and sports. These individuals, despite their brilliance, talent, wealth and power, are shown to have feet of clay. This metaphor is from the Book of Daniel, written over 2000 years ago. Clearly we’ve known about our self-destructive capacity for a very long time. These dramatic instances of poor behaviour are both fodder for tabloids and for great enduring literature. Today we ascribe this self-defeating behaviour as a lack of social and emotional intelligence.

 

EQ, also known as Emotional Intelligence, has four broad dimensions – self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management. It’s a natural complement to Cognitive Intelligence, or IQ (Intellectual Quotient). Like IQ, EQ is also needed at all life stages. EQ has four broad dimensions – self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management.

 

Our collective “EQ Gap” plays out in our own lives at school, work, and the community. While it usually doesn’t become a news story, the consequences are just as dramatic and destructive….

9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills

9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills | Leadership with a splash of empathy | Scoop.it

Strong negotiation skills are hugely advantageous throughout one’s life, from the boardroom to the bar. These skills largely rest on your ability to back up your words with physical actions that exude openness, honesty, and confidence. This fosters trust and increases the other party’s desire to react cooperatively and reach agreement.

According to psychologists and a recent study from language experts Gengo, body language and non-verbal communications has a greater impact in a discussion than the actual words that you say.

 David Zweig, a lecturer and journalist who has written for the Atlantic, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal, lovingly calls these people “Invisibles”—and in his fascinating new book, Invisibles: The Power of Anonymous Work in an Age of Relentless Self-Promotion (Portfolio Hardcover, 2014), he lays out a strong case for their importance in making the world go around.

Zweig recently spoke with strategy+business about the nature of the Invisibles, and why, despite their personal modesty, even shyness, they so often make such effective leaders.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 7, 6:14 AM

It is certainly valuable to allow involvement and influence in making changes; people generally respond better to changes they understand and value and are much more likely to do so if they are involved in its planning and implementation. Simply "educating" people does not take into account their specific situation or concerns and so may help make the unfamiliar more familiar, the unknown more known, but still leaves individuals circumstances unaddressed.

(From the article): Value formation helps us understand why leadership is defined and practiced differently. Our personal belief – me, us or Him – influence how we act, what we deem important or unimportant and defines what is right or wrong. Understanding why we lead also helps us to understand ourselves, others and the activities we choose to undertake. Answering the why question is both a foundational and missing ingredient in leadership.

Broad Strokes: Five Key Leadership Lessons From Billionaire Eli Broad

Broad Strokes: Five Key Leadership Lessons From Billionaire Eli Broad | Leadership with a splash of empathy | Scoop.it

When Peter Drucker died in 2005, billionaire Eli Broad was among those who lavished praise on him, noting that the legendary management writer’s insights “seemed rather simple but, in fact, were very profound.”

Today, the same thing might well be said of Broad, the founder of two Fortune 500 companies, an internationally renowned art collector and museum patron, and a celebrated philanthropist and civic leader.

 

In his new book, The Art of Being Unreasonable, Broad shares his own principles for success—nearly all of which are positively Drucker-like. Scores of leadership, management and life lessons are sprinkled throughout the book. Here are five that I found especially powerful:

(From the article): The foundation of leading teams is trust. To that extent leaders of leading teams are authentic and real, no masks, no politics. They connect personally with the team members and create opportunities for them to get to know each other informally also. Creating common shared experiences and fostering collaboration continues to build the level of trust in the team.

 

Accountability and reliability solidifies the trust. No double standards. The leader must be a shining example of that. They must always keep their promises and do what they say they are going to do. People are much more likely to bring their best to work when they trust their leader.
