How Well Do You Know the Story of You?

How Well Do You Know the Story of You? | HR Learning & Development Toolkit. | Scoop.it
Crucible moments are exactly the events and experiences that do not appear on our social media profiles, CVs, and the other instruments we use to present ourselves to the world. Yet they are the sources of the self-understanding and awareness central to your ability to connect with others — and to motivate them toward a shared goal, persevering to overcome obstacles along the way. The true story of you is the key to why you lead and informs why others are drawn to follow you.

One of the most effective and courageous exercises in exploring the fullness of a personal story that I have witnessed was demonstrated in an executive-education session by my colleague, retired Brig. Gen. Dana Born. Born, who had a successful career in the U.S. Air Force before coming to Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, used a technique taught to her at the Authentic Leadership Institute, with which she is also affiliated. She first introduced herself with a recitation of the high points of her impressive background. Just when people were beginning to think that she was quite full of herself, she stopped. Born then began again, this time using the experiences one doesn’t usually share — the disappointments, failures, pain, and regrets of that career. When she paused, the room was silent. Her point was crystal clear. The true story of you has two equally important parts. Your essence is woven from your good and your bad experiences.

How Learning Leaders Win Friends and Influence People

How Learning Leaders Win Friends and Influence People | HR Learning & Development Toolkit. | Scoop.it
Sheer talent will only yield so much problem-solving capability. It’s one reason relationships are so important for business success.

Michael Chavez, CEO of Duke Corporate Education, said leaders needn’t look further than this summer’s Brexit vote as an example of this. Increasingly complex problems will not be easily solved with a purely functional mindset. The relationships people will need to build in the British government moving forward will be far more important than arriving at the right answer when there are many pathways out of the predicament, he explained.

That’s politics, but relationships are no less important in business. Learning leaders in particular have to be strong networkers and collaborators to be effective. Chavez said networking is probably a requirement for the job. If he had to hire a chief learning officer of his own, he said he’d be willing to trade off experience working with learning management systems, for instance, for a proven track record of building relationships based on the work. “Technical expertise in learning is not sufficient — necessary but not sufficient — to drive the kind of learning solutions that organizations need.”

Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 2, 2:28 PM

Here's a great article that thoroughly discusses the steps leaders need to take to create a learning organization. The first step is to become a learning leader yourself. After that there are 6 steps to shift into a learning culture (that is more productive and profitable).

 

What's storytelling got to do with it? It's the way to implement all 6 steps to get to those concrete results. Storytelling is the path. Like most articles, steps are offered, but not the "how". In this case, storytelling can be the powerful "how".

 

But it's really about story dynamics -- the give and take of conversational storytelling. That means leaders need training in how to evoke stories from others, how to listen for stories, and the best ways/timing for giving appreciations. These are covered in Chapter 5 of our book "Business Storytelling For Dummies".

 

On the flip side of the coin is learning storytelling skills to foster authenticity, empathy, transparency, and executive presence.

 

What I love about this article are the examples/case studies they provide. This moves the content from platitudes to real life experiences. 'Gotta love that.

 

Dig into this rich post and start making these changes today.

Leading Amidst Change: Why Strategy Matters

Leading Amidst Change: Why Strategy Matters | HR Learning & Development Toolkit. | Scoop.it
Structural inertia theory highlights a problem inherent to strategic leadership. If leadership does a good job aligning the different aspects of organization and strategy, then changing that complex, aligned system will be especially difficult. And even if leadership does manage to change that system, the consequential drop in performance is likely to be extreme. Looking again at the Bank of America example, many pundits criticized the company for taking so long to shift away from the earlier strategy and structure centered on brick-and-mortar branches, skilled loan officers in every location, and decentralization to allow for extreme localization. Only after nearly failing did the bank’s leadership manage to break with that strategy and structure. Yet, when seen through the lens of structural inertia theory, this resistance to change is precisely what one would expect from such a well-managed organization. Years of fine tuning had created a complex organization including various, well-aligned features that made the bank particularly good at geographic localization. In this way, the difficulties involved with changing Bank of America were more a measure of its excellence than an indictment – albeit excellence that had become outdated. And this example suggests a caution to business leaders:

Leadership Is About Emotion

Leadership Is About Emotion | HR Learning & Development Toolkit. | Scoop.it

Make a list of the 5 leaders you most admire. They can be from business, social media, politics, technology, the sciences, any field. Now ask yourself why you admire them. The chances are high that your admiration is based on more than their accomplishments, impressive as those may be. I’ll bet that everyone on your list reaches you on an emotional level.

 

This ability to reach people in a way that transcends the intellectual and rational is the mark of a great leader. They all have it. They inspire us. It’s a simple as that. And when we’re inspired we tap into our best selves and deliver amazing work.

 

So, can this ability to touch and inspire people be learned? No and yes. The truth is that not everyone can lead, and there is no substitute for natural talent. Honestly, I’m more convinced of this now – I’m in reality about the world of work and employee engagement. But for those who fall somewhat short of being a natural born star (which is pretty much MANY of us), leadership skills can be acquired, honed and perfected. And when this happens your chances of engaging your talent increases from the time they walk into your culture.

5 Signs Of High Emotional Intelligence

5 Signs Of High Emotional Intelligence | HR Learning & Development Toolkit. | Scoop.it
 

Emotional intelligence predicts people’s ability to regulate themselves, manage other people, and achieve success. Research shows a link between emotional intelligence and career success. Not everyone is born with it, but unlike IQ, emotional intelligence can be acquired and improved with practice. So, how can we tell if someone’s got it or not? Here are five signs of people with high emotional intelligence. These are qualities that are easy to assess in every day situations.

 

Sign No. 1: They handle criticism without denial, blame, excuses or anxiety.

One of the hallmarks of high emotional intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is a deep understanding of what makes us tick; what angers us, makes us happy, bores and interests us. It’s also means that we can appraise ourselves, faults and all, with great honesty and clarity. So when people with high emotional intelligence make a mistake and get criticized for it, it doesn’t send them into an emotional tailspin. It’s simply a fact to be noted, analyzed and corrected.
