Business Record: 5 trends for leaders of the future

Business Record: 5 trends for leaders of the future | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

Great article on how our digital world is changing the role of a leader from one who predicts the future to one who provokes in others new insights to what the future can hold.  I especially love the insight provided that states companies that find themselves behind in the game compared to their competitors are actually at an advantage because they are in a much better position to "leapfrog" over the competition.  I've always believed that if you can stand on the shoulders of others that have already been there and/or done that you are in a much better place to innovate and ultimately create something new.

Your Words Have Power

Your Words Have Power | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
When was the last time you actually took the time to listen to yourself? I’m not talking about the way you speak to yourself, but the words you say to yourself. Are you critical of the risks you let yourself take? Impatient with your progress? Judgmental about your decisions? As an executive
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

Words have power.  Your words let the world know not only what you are thinking but also what you are feeling within.   You must choose to use the right words carefully as they may become the song that you sing to someone else’s heart.

7 Ways That A Great Leader Thinks Differently

7 Ways That A Great Leader Thinks Differently | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
What do Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan have in common? All three of them had great philosophies and the way they viewed life. Implement these 7 ways that great leaders think differently!
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

These seven traits are fundamental and foundational for being a great leader but I think there is one more in particular that is missing.  Passion. Great leaders must have passion for the purpose and cause in which they lead.  Leaders with passion have within themselves the opportunity to inspire others from the inside out.  When leaders truly let their passion shine forth, others cannot only see the passion within the leader but they can also feel it.  Also, having a vision without passion is a recipe for failure.  When a leader let’s their passion for a vision come through, they actually have a better chance of making that which is not yet perceivable by most, visible to the masses.

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

Not all great leaders are great coaches but that doesn't mean they shouldn't value the need for leadership coaching.  Great leaders understand that with the right coach, leaders are more able to tap into and fully release their best leadership gifts, resources and talents.  Doing so better enables leaders to purposefully plan and achieve an "impossible and remarkable future". Great coaching therefore is not a nice to have but a must have if leaders are to truly release and leverage all the resources they personally posses to ensure organizational success.

In reading this article I am reminded that it is also important to remember that there can be no empowerment without trust.  As leaders we must first trust that people will make the best decisions, take the appropriate actions and focus their energies on accomplishing the goal at hand which leads to an empowered and purposeful organization.  Empowerment and trust go hand in hand as the winning combination for creating a culture of excellence.

Are you a pessimistic leader? There is hope.
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

As a leader, I have always loved the verse “where there is no vision the people perish” and believe it speaks to a fundamental requirement for being a great visionary leader.  The leader, who has and speaks positively about a vision of what can be, gives hope and inspiration to others who cannot yet perceive that which is possible.  It is through the sharing of a positive vision that leaders enable employees to do what they previously thought was impossible.

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. Young leaders may wonder what can they do to continue their growth. They’ve already taken the courses that were required. They’ve …
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.

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."

According to CEB, the old model of leadership isn't working. Is your business falling behind as a result?
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

Network leadership requires understanding that successful leadership today is a connected and collective process. It involves understanding the facilitative and emergent role you play as a leader and the importance of building and cultivating the right relationships.   It requires getting comfortable with a level of transparency, trust and accountability that many organizations today have resisted for a long time. Network leaders strategically connect to and involve like-minded people because they see it as their personal mission to champion ideas, support and innovation throughout an organization.

Leadership Lessons From LEGO

Leadership Lessons From LEGO | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
Many of the lessons learned in fatherhood apply, on a certain level, to change leadership. Here are the parallels between building a complex LEGO set and coaching a client through transformational change.
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

This article is right on target when it comes to understanding the importance of communicating a vision as a leader to enable others to see the outcome you want them to achieve.  I’ve actually used Legos to teach my leadership teams this lesson.   Splitting the team up into small groups of 2 - 3 leaders each, I gave each group the same set of Legos but minus the box and any instructions.  I then asked each group to build what they think they should with their set of Legos.  As you can imagine, even though each group had the exact same set of Legos, without the picture on the box and the set of instructions, each group built a totally different structure in the end.  Next, I handed each group the box with the picture of what the Legos put together should look like with the instructions, and this time each group was able to complete the task of building the exact same structure.  This was a great way to illustrate to my leadership teams that without a clear vision of where you are going and a plan to get there, even though you may have very capable and well-intended employees, your chances of getting everyone to the same place for business success may be “slim to none”.
