Leadership Is Not a Solitary Task

Leadership Is Not a Solitary Task | Leadership, Influence and Living with Impact | Scoop.it
An inspiring historical story is once again making the rounds at least partially because of its inclusion in Malcolm Gladwell’s new book, David and Goliath. In it, Gladwell tells the story of the French town of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, which became a safe haven for Jews in Nazi-occupied France during World War II. Led by minister André Trocmé, the residents of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon saved between 3,000 and 3,500 Jews (in addition to others seeking refuge) from 1940 until the end of the war, bringing them into the community and hiding them from French and Nazi officials. By any measure, their actions were courageous and inspiring. They were also an example of the power of community in leadership.

The way you think about leadership is broken

The way you think about leadership is broken | Leadership, Influence and Living with Impact | Scoop.it
Most people think about leadership in an archaic way. And as much as I don’t mean to point the finger, chances are, you’re one of them. Frankly, the entire leadership belief system needs upending. Until we - as people in businesses up and down the country, up and down the corporate ladder - make some fundamental changes to those beliefs, the situation won’t get better.

New Research Unlocks the Secret of Employee Recognition

New Research Unlocks the Secret of Employee Recognition | Leadership, Influence and Living with Impact | Scoop.it
Bersin has completed a comprehensive research project on employee recognition (saying "thank you") and the results are really astounding: organizations that give regular thanks to their employees far out perform those that don't. What their research found was that tenure-based rewards systems have virtually no impact on organizational performance. It turns out that many of these tenure-based rewards programs are really legacy programs from the turn of the century when labor unions forced management to give employees “service awards” and hourly raises for tenure. Most large companies still have these programs today, yet only 58% of employees even know such programs exist. So for the most part they aren’t creating much value. On other hand, our research did find that modern, re-engineered recognition programs can have a huge impact on business performance.

What Happens To Our Brains When We Exercise And How It Makes Us Happier

What Happens To Our Brains When We Exercise And How It Makes Us Happier | Leadership, Influence and Living with Impact | Scoop.it
Most of us are aware of what happens to the body when we exercise. We build more muscle or more stamina. We feel how daily activities like climbing stairs becomes easier if we exercise regularly. When it comes to our brain and mood though, the connection isn’t so clear.A recent study from Penn State university shed some light on the matter and the results are more than surprising.
