I'm the Boss! Why Should I Care If You Like Me? Research Results on Executive Likability

I'm the Boss!  Why Should I Care If You Like Me?  Research Results on Executive Likability | Life etc. | Scoop.it

Bad news for mean bosses.  In a study of 51,836 leaders, we found just 27 who were rated at the bottom quartile in terms of likability but in the top quartile in terms of overall leadership effectiveness — that's approximately one out of 2,000.

360 data from these 50,000+ leaders highlighted seven key steps executives can take to substantially increase their likability.

 

Excerpted:

   

 

Increase positive emotional connections with others.... If a leader is angry or frustrated, those feelings will spread to others. Conversely, if a leader is positive and optimistic, those emotions also spread. Be aware of your emotional state and work to spread the positive emotions.

    

Display rock solid integrity. Do others trust you to keep your commitments and promises? Are others confident that you will be fair and do the right thing? 

   
Be a coach, mentor, and teacher. Most people have fond and positive memories of coaches and mentors. Helping others develop is a gift that is never forgotten.

Be an inspiration. Most leaders know very well how to drive for results. ...The most successful leaders ...also ...roll up their sleeves ...and pitch in with the team. They communicate powerfully. Inspiring leaders...are more likeable.

Like or dislike, integrity also connects to respect:  "Perhaps the surest test of an individual's integrity is his refusal to do or say anything that would damage his self-respect." ~ Thomas S. Monson

Chad Manske's curator insight, August 19, 2013 8:00 AM

It takes real humility to ask subordinates for feedback on your performance.  The purpose in doing so is not to expect to hear how good you are, but to hear what you need to work on.  We all have leadership 'blind spots' requiring the benefit of trusted people, ideally honest and critical subordinates, to tell us when we wear 'no clothes.'  If you're open and honest to feedback, and pay attention to the likability characteristics here, you WILL increase your leadership quotient.

How to Train Your Mind to Think Critically and Form Your Own Opinions | Life etc. | Scoop.it
"Critical Thinking" may sound like an obnoxious buzzword from liberal arts schools, but it's actually a useful skill. Critical thinking just means absorbing important information and using that to form a decision or opinion of your own—rather than just spouting off what you hear others say. This doesn't always come naturally to us, but luckily, it's something you can train yourself to do better.

How to Identify and Learn from Your Mistakes

How to Identify and Learn from Your Mistakes | Life etc. | Scoop.it
It's never easy to admit you've made a mistake, but it's a crucial step in learning, growing, and improving yourself. Writer and speaker Scott Berkun's new essay collection, Mindfire: Big Ideas for Curious Minds, examines, among other things, how to learn from your mistakes. In this excerpt, Berkun discusses four of the most common kinds of mistakes, how to recognize them, and how, in turn, to learn from them. This essay will cover all three. First we have to classify the different kinds of mistakes. (I'm sure you can come up with other categories: that's fantastic, please . But these are the ones you're stuck with for the rest of this essay). The kind of mistakes you make define you. The more interesting the mistakes, the more interesting the life. If your biggest mistakes are missing reruns of tv-shows or buying the wrong lottery ticket you're not challenging yourself enough to earn more interesting mistakes. As you put together the sequence of events, you'll recognize that mistakes initially categorized as complex eventually break down into smaller mistakes. The painted over crack was avoidable but happened anyway (Stupid). Was there a system in place for avoiding these mistakes? (Simple). Were there unaddressed patterns of behavior that made that system fail? (Involved). Once you've broken a complex mistake down you can follow the previous advice on making changes.

Measuring the impact of content | theOutsourcing-guide.com | Life etc. | Scoop.it
By Mark Atterby In recent years there has been a dramatic growth in content marketing. Spurned on by their Social Media initiatives, marketers are now producing more content than ever before. However, few to no standards exist that adequately capture the impact of content on the business, whether from a reputation, revenue, operational or brand perspective. In this age of digital data driven marketing and analytics it’s important to measure results. But that’s the problem with content marketing. Compared to a direct mailshot or telemarketing campaign or some other form of hard selling technique – measuring the effectiveness of content marketing, in real dollar terms, is difficult. Recent research from Altimeter, highlights how content strategists and digital marketers struggle to select the right metrics and frequently opt for measuring volume rather than impact when impact metrics are too complex to measure, or the required data or tools are not available. Tying metrics to real
