Managing is like teaching - it's all about getting the best out of those under your responsibility - not under you in terms of knowledge, though.

MIT--The 2 Most Underrated Leadership Skills includes storytelling

MIT--The 2 Most Underrated Leadership Skills includes storytelling | Leading others in disability awareness | Scoop.it
VideoLeadership is changing. A big part is the impact of the Millennials. They are less apt to respond to command & control and respond much more positively to a different kind of leadership. Even a recession has not cured them of this.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 18, 2013 7:25 PM

I found this article really interesting because it is not your ordinary run-of-the mill article about leadership. Recent MIT studies have identified 2 essential leadership skills that are completely under the radar.


The first critical leadership skill is sense-making. The way they talk about this in the article is being able to make sense of the environment and its rapid changes, then being able to operate from that sense-making. This leads me to think how important storytelling is in that process -- listening for stories, being able to make sense from them, extrapolate meaning from that, and then sharing stories with that meaning to bring others on board.


The second critical leadership skill the study identified is innovation. No surprises there and that does not really connect to storytelling. But what does connect is the section of the article talking about a leader's leadership signature -- their unique way of leading. Now storytelling comes front and center again. It's the stories you as a leader share, and the stories told about a leader, that defines that signature. As the article says, it's a leader's values, experiences, and skills that make up that signature. Again, I'm saying that happens through the stories that are shared.


So this is a provocative read. And it won't take you long. Think about the insights here whether you are a leader in an enterprise, a manager, entrerpreneur, or small business firm.

Read Karen's Insight.  Relating to Leadership and reflecting on Lee Thayer's 4+ decades focused on Leadership and High Performance, leaders don't have a Vision, the Vision has them. And the story they share allows others to choose to be part of that Vision.


As Karen shares: "It's the stories you as a leader share, and the stories told about a leader, that defines that signature. As the article says, it's a leader's values, experiences, and skills that make up that signature. Again, I'm saying that happens through the stories that are shared."

From Techie to Boss teaches technical people who are making or mulling the transition from team player to team leader all the management techniques and soft leadership skills they never needed before—but need now, pronto. Veteran team lead and project manager Scott Cromar lays out the classical managementtraining course, but stripped down to precisely the essentials that techies need to start managing on the fly. He gets it that a front-line techie getting a field promotion to team leader just doesn’t have the time to wade through an MBA textbook bulging with irrelevant material.

The author appreciates how you got to the place where you need this book. Management tapped you instead of some experienced manager from the outside because you know the technical challenges, company culture, and team players better than anyone else: you’re ready to hit the ground running. But the skills that make you an excellent techie are not sufficient to make you a successful manager. The rules of your world have abruptly changed. You will now be judged not by your puzzle-solving elegance but by how effectively your team contributes to the organization’s bottom line.

From Techie to Boss shows you how to translate and adapt the analytic skills that made you an outstanding techie to your new responsibilities as a technical manager. Even more crucially, this book teaches you a whole new set of interpersonal, organizational, and metrical skills you never needed before, but without which you cannot succeed as a manager.

What you’ll learn
The new skills you’ll learn for leading technical teams include:

Techniques and tips for all aspects of management—project, time, scope, risk, dependency, earned value, quality, team roles, distributed team, global team, and conflict management90-day plan pointers, such as managing your boss, selecting early wins, defining scope, gathering requirements, developing a WBS, documenting procedures, and complianceTroubleshooting techniques such as Current Reality Tree and Ishikawa diagramsProject scheduling methods, including work breakdown structures and dependency management with GANTT and PERT chartsRequirements analysis using UML and Agile

Who this book is for
This book teaches management-caliber techies the skills they’ll need to make the jump to being successful project managers and multifunctional operational team leaders, on their way to becoming senior project managers, system and network administrators, and program managers.

The Endurance - Documentary about Enerst Shackleton's quest to cross the Antarctic

Full documentary about one of the most intriguing leadership achievements in history.

 

In 1909, Ernest Shackleton set out to be the first to cross the Antarctic continent.

 

The expedition met disastrous results when its ship became trapped and ultimately crushed in the ice pack. Shackleton and his 26-man crew endured the long polar winter before ultimately finding rescue following an 800-mile open boat voyage on the Weddell sea.

 

Against all odds, the entire crew of The Endurance survived.
