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.

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

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. 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.

By The Time You Give Them a Raise, They’re Already Out The Door | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
There’s an endless amount written on the ‘net about hiring Rockstars. Finding them, not settling, and all that. That you need to spend 20%+ of time recruiting (I said that myself here). That the #1 most important thing you can do is put together a great team. Which is absolutely true.

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."

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.

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

Leveraging generational differences in the workplace provides one of the biggest opportunities for companies to differentiate themselves yet most don’t understand how to capitalize on this organizational strength.  Organizational success lies not in getting everyone to play the same song but instead in getting everyone to bring his or her individual sound, their gifts and talents, to the team to create the greatest melody, unique competitive plan for organizational success.

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

The ability to collaborate and communicate with peers, thought leaders, emerging leaders, social networks, etc... on a regular basis has become more important for developing effective leadership skills.  Connected leaders know that they already have access to people, information and thinking that if used, will challenge and stretch them as leaders and, in the process, provide them with leadership development opportunities.

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.

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.
