Leadership: Are you listening with your Heart ?

Leadership: Are you listening with your Heart ? | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
Open your eyes and heart to listen. There have been numerous instances when I just listened and kept quiet. The other person cried and the tears made him lighter.He could face the situation in a better way.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

Mindful leaders are fully present in the moment; locally focused and attentively listening with the other person's best interest at heart.

10 Unforgettable Quotes by Jim Rohn

10 Unforgettable Quotes by Jim Rohn | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
When personal development legend Jim Rohn passed away in 2009, he left an incredible gift: his encouraging, uplifting messages and inspiring, thought-provoking quotes, beloved by millions and shared throughout the world to this day. 
For what would be his 84th birthday on Sept. 17, SUCCESS celebrates and remembers the life of Jim Rohn with 10 of his most beloved quotes:
1. “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less cha
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

Jim Rohn has been a virtual mentor of mine since I began my career many years ago.  I too cherish and am grateful for the many uplifting and thoughtful messages he shared with the world and planted in my spirit from the very beginning of my career.   Messages that encouraged and motivated me to purposefully decide and act upon how I would engage and lead in the pursuit of my goals.  Here are a few additional favorite Jim Rohn quotes that continue to inspire and speak to me as I go forward on my journey:

 

“Life expects us to make a reasonable amount of progress in a reasonable amount of time. That's why they make those second grade chairs so small.”  - Jim Rohn

 

“Never wish life were easier, wish that you were better. When you become better it will naturally become easier.” - Jim Rohn


"Let others lead small lives but not you.  Let others argue over small things, but not you.  Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.  Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you." - Jim Rohn


"Motivation alone is not enough.  If you have an idiot and you motivate them, now you have a motivated idiot." - Jim Rohn

 

"Work harder on yourself, than you do on the job. You can't give more if you don't become more." - Jim Rohn

 

"The greatest gift you can give somebody is your own personal development. I used to say, "If you will take care of me, I will take care of you. "Now I say, I will take care of me for you, if you will take care of you for me." - Jim Rohn

 

"Miss a meal if you have to, but don't miss a book." - Jim Rohn


"We don’t get paid for the hour; we get paid for the value we bring to the hour." - Jim Rohn

 

"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." - Jim Rohn

 

“Managers help people see themselves as they are; Leaders help people to see themselves better than they are.” - Jim Rohn

 

"How long should you try? Until.” - Jim Rohn

 

"First come reasons, then come answers." - Jim Rohn

Can Overthinking Reduce a Leader's Influence? | Stanford Graduate School of Business

Can Overthinking Reduce a Leader's Influence? | Stanford Graduate School of Business | Leading Forward | Scoop.it

We've all seen this: The CEO who acts instinctively, sometimes with terrible results, keeps his or her job and even develops a loyal following. Meanwhile, the thinker in the executive suite who consistently offers the right, deliberated answer rarely gets a promotion.

Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

Interesting article and very relevant to leadership decision making today.  As leaders we have to better weigh the options when anticipating the need and opportunity to "lead in the moment" versus waiting until all our "t's" are crossed and "i's" are dotted. Maybe Nike was also onto something that could improve a leaders influence in the right situation when they said "Just Do It"! The bottom-line is, leaders have to be careful not to "overthink" the small decisions or "underthink" the bigger ones is they want to truly be influential.

6 Ways Leaders Continue To Grow - Joseph Lalonde | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
Our pursuit of growth shouldn’t end when we graduate high school or college. Nor should it end when we are bestowed with the title of leadership. No, leaders must be intentional about their growth.

Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

As leaders, we cannot give to the team members nor the organizations we have the honor of leading that which we don’t possess.  Therefore, in order to give more as leaders we have to continually become more as leaders.  In other words, we must never stop growing and learning.

Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

Timing is everything when it comes to retaining top talent and it starts the moment you decide to hire them.  If you wait until someone else tries to hire them away to "do the right thing" it's too late.  According to Jason M. Lemkin - "If nothing else - address retaining your top troops at least as seriously as you do recruiting them.  And what ever you do, don't ignore the ones that don't complain."

Evidence suggests organisations’ leadership strategies are failing to keep up with a fast-changing world. To bridge this gulf, the notion of what a leader looks like needs to change, according to Cliff Oswick, professor in organisational behaviour theory and deputy dean at Cass Business School. “The days of the ‘rock star’ CEO are behind us,” he says. “We don’t need leaders who demonstrate ‘strong leadership’. We need people who are inclusive, reflective and facilitate the ideas of others.”
