What Great Leaders Know That Good Leaders Don’t about Self-Regulation - General Leadership

What Great Leaders Know That Good Leaders Don’t about Self-Regulation - General Leadership | Living Leadership | Scoop.it
If our skills, competencies and judgment get us our leadership roles – it's our Emotional Quotient (EQ), or Emotional Intelligence, that keeps us there and propels us forward into greater leadership scope, work footprint, scale and reach. If our EQ capacity empowers us to effectively leverage our emotions to bring about better business outcomes, then - our ability to exercise self-regulation powers our EQ capacity. Greater focus, observation and practice of self-regulation and gratification delay will improve your EQ capacity and lead you to becoming a more effective, formidable and influential leader – one who others look to follow because of your influence, not your positional power.

Change Management Requires Leadership Clarity and Alignment

Change Management Requires Leadership Clarity and Alignment | Living Leadership | Scoop.it
Change management is in full-force across all industries, yet many leaders are unprepared to act upon and operationalize the requirements for change to avoid business disruption. For many organizations, preparedness begins at the top and this means that leadership – across all levels – must have absolute clarity in purpose and focus; there also must be alignment in strategic philosophy and resolution goals.

Unfortunately, many organizations are slow to change as the internal politics makes it difficult to reach consensus across all levels of leadership – even when the necessity for change is urgent. This is why many companies unknowingly lose momentum as they fail to change fast enough -- allowing the marketplace and competitors to pass them by. The result: valuable time is misspent, resources applied and money invested without the required outcomes to stay competitive, keep clients satisfied and employees engaged.

Innovation Excellence | What’s in Your OODA Loop?

Innovation Excellence | What’s in Your OODA Loop? | Living Leadership | Scoop.it
The model Colonel John Boyd developed as a fighter pilot, dubbed the OODA Loop for “Observe, Orient, Decide and Act” has become the foundation for agile strategy used for success in environments from legal, to business, and to war.
Matthew Fritz's insight:
Considering that an opponent is not just standing there and watching you nug out an answer to beating them at their own game, the faster you are able to complete this cycle and then re-engage to do it again—over and over—is what puts you on the Wheaties box. Complete the cycle poorly, and you can expect a poor outcome. Cycle continuously and rapidly—better than your opponent—and you will find yourself crowned king of the mountain.
