A Crisis Of Leadership - What's Next?

A Crisis Of Leadership - What's Next? | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it
Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:


Our world is suffering greatly at the hands of people who have placed their desire to be right above the desire to achieve the right outcome. They confuse their need for an ego boost, their quest for power, and their thirst for greed with leadership. Many of the symptoms of poor leadership we’re seeing today may seemingly resolve themselves in the near term, but the greater problem won’t go away on its own.

Frankly, I think we're looking for leadership in all the wrong places. I saw an interesting comment by Neil DeGrasse, astronomer and scientist. He observed that more than half of congressional seats are filled by lawyers - people who rely on the SKILL of arguing a point as a means of WINNING a point. This has nothing to do with whether the points made are true, moral, ethical or move society forward in any way.  Maybe we should be looking among the "masses" - those people who are living and working everyday to make life better "on the ground," so to speak. Entrepreneurs. Community organizers and activitists. Those who sit-in and protest and work in food kitchens and community gardens. These are the people who are coming up with solutions on a daily basis, and are unconcerned with, "scoring points."

The article has a servant-leadership flavour to it. The challenge is to get past rhetoric to substantive action.

Want to Be Smarter and More Emotionally Intelligent, and to Laugh More? Start Reading These 10 Writers Today | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

In turn, when we read work that affects us this way, it's natural we want to share with others. Here are 10 writers I feel have made me smarter and more emotionally intelligent, and have provided great laughs. I read them every chance I get.

1. Isabelle Roughol

With a professional blogging platform that now boasts over one million users, LinkedIn is quickly changing the publishing world as we know it. Isabelle Roughol, an international editor for LinkedIn, demonstrates one reason why.


Roughol's daily "Must Reads" column is concise, well-sourced, and very well written. She's my go-to in the morning for catching up on the day's most important news, even before The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal. A self-proclaimed Millennial, her sharp and humorous style is personable enough to speak to multiple generations.

There are few pleasures in life that can top good reading. Through the written word we are informed, educated, entertained, inspired.

8 Things Mentally Strong People Do Every Single Day

8 Things Mentally Strong People Do Every Single Day | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Just like people aren't born with physical strength, no one is blessed with incredible mental strength at birth. Instead, mental strength is developed over time by individuals who choose to make personal development a priority.

In addition to avoiding the things that could hold them back, mentally strong people create healthy habits that assist them in growing stronger. Here are eight things mentally strong people do every day to strengthen their mental muscles:

The 3-Step Plan to Accomplish More By Working Less

The 3-Step Plan to Accomplish More By Working Less | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

When you want to move up in the workplace, your first instinct might be to ask yourself, “What can I add to my plate to impress people and really prove my worth around here?”

That may seem like a smart question to ponder, but in my opinion, it’s not always the right question to start off with.

Instead, here’s a good place to start: “What can I subtract from my current workload so that I can clear away some muck, free up my time and energy, and start contributing at the highest possible level?”

In other words: “What should I be doing less of around here?”

After working as a psychologist and life coach for over 28 years--mentoring super-achievers across all kinds of industries--what I have observed, time and time again, is that the secret to success isn’t doing more. It’s doing less.

Here is a simple auditing exercise to help you critically examine your work week and decide which tasks to keep--and which you ought to delete.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

It's time to critically examine what you actually do during the week.
