"Evita complejidades innecesarias"

ozziegontang's curator insight, May 11, 2013 6:17 PM

Actually it starts with the way that I think. My thinkiandrogen influences who I am. Who I am influences what I do. The writing part comes from my thinking and my being. Reading Lee Thayer's book Leadership Virtuosity would be very helpful in seeing leadership from this aspect and all its many other perspectives.

How to Build Leadership Trust

How to Build Leadership Trust | Leading by Serving | Scoop.it

What do employees really want from company leaders? The answer may surprise you — and, more important, may prompt you to change some of your practices.

“I don’t think the people who work for you want you to be an optimist anymore,” says GE CEO Jeff Immelt. “They want you to be realistic. They don’t want hollow promises, they want action: What’s your plan, and how are you going to solve problems?”

The hallmarks of what Immelt calls “positive leadership” are authenticity, transparent communication, a focus on the future, and the ability to solve problems and take action.

Great leadership is built around trust. How truthful CEO communication can build better team alignment and productivity at your company.

John Michel's curator insight, June 16, 2013 9:30 PM

Recent management studies support the idea that workers respond best not to cheerleading or a continuous stream of happy talk, but to evidence of a strong connection between words and deeds. Employees are much more likely to trust their immediate supervisors than top corporate executives, according to global consulting firm Blessing White. Why? Because employees can match what managers say with what they do. That’s more difficult to do given the layers of management that may separate them from top leaders, which makes it imperative that top leaders spell out specific actions the company will take, explain why, and offer proof that such actions have been taken.

The Duality Of Leadership

The Duality Of Leadership | Leading by Serving | Scoop.it
In life and in leadership, we are constantly dealing with duality. To learn, we need to be curious. To lead, we need to have followers. To be strong, we need to be vulnerable. To give, we need to receive.

Love this post about leadership and duality...

Yes, Conscious Leadership comes from within.

And, it's about starting with ourselves because we are, first and foremost, the leaders of our own lives...

ratzelster's curator insight, May 21, 2013 9:25 AM

I love the idea of holding two thoughts at once....and how that must help inform our leadership practices.

Eh oui... rien n'est totalement blanc ou noir... 

L'intégration de la dualité est indispensable pour avancer.
