Leadership: Why do we Fail ?

Leadership: Why do we Fail ? | Making things work at your workplace | Scoop.it
Whether we admit it or not, all of us have failed in our lives sometime or the other.Successful people take failure as a learning step in the right direction. In fact, it is good to fail sometimes, but why do we fail ?

Mike Doherty's curator insight, September 6, 2013 4:40 AM

Lack of Goals: Sometimes, in our lives and in our career, we feel that we have "hit the ceiling."  We feel that  there is no where to go further. Our lives have reached a full-stop.  Yes. It is true that this does happen. But , to succeed, we have to sense this before we reach the stage when we think that we cannot progress further and take positive steps on the next part of our lives and career.  We should have a clear vision where we want to go.  It is perfectly fine to make changes to your goals when the need arises, to think about altering your course. We can always have a list of excuses, but to succeed, we need clarity of thoughts, self discipline and a sense of self worth.

David Hain's curator insight, September 16, 2013 12:41 AM

There are many reasons - the important thing is to experience and earn from it.  None of us learned to walk withoutfalling over!

On Creative Leadership

On Creative Leadership | Making things work at your workplace | Scoop.it

This article talks about creative leadership and what it means to balance finesse and creative leadership when it comes to managing a team of creatives.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Carol Williams's insight:

Wonderful piece. Regarding the section on Music: I found that concentrating at times can be difficult when the office is constantly moving or at home when the TV in on, the dogs are playing or the kids are argueing. I've downloaded an app for $1.99 called the Sound Machine. Best two bucks I've ever spent. I customize the white noise to my liking and mood and after a few minutes, the whole world is tuned out and I can work for hours (or until someone needs me to solve a problem).

Shelby Stephens's curator insight, September 3, 2013 3:24 PM

The first section of this article is entirguing, saying that people are at their most creative potential in the shower after they wake up. Other points that are being made are: the science behand creativity, how to manage and channel creativity, and how it all relates to being a more creative and innovative leader versus management. 

Melinda Berge's curator insight, September 5, 2013 8:37 PM

In addition to talking about how to be more in touch with your creative side, this talks about the challenges of managing leaders, especially creative ones.

7 Leadership Lies You Need to Stop Believing

7 Leadership Lies You Need to Stop Believing | Making things work at your workplace | Scoop.it

We live in an age that seeks quick fixes and easy answers. Sometimes leaders abdicate their thinking to others and accept "prevailing wisdom," which is often an oxymoron.

I grew up, like most, accepting many things at face value. It wasn't until I started giving important issues like leadership a second and third thought that I realized I'd been believing what turned out to be some serious leadership myths.

The 198x Vietnamese generation (in their early 30s now) grew up with Tsubasa, Teppi, Dragon Balls, Doraemon, TKKG. Mostly about friendship &  hardworking spirit than super hero.

 

Quote from article: "Do you remember spending sleepless nights as a kid, reading your favorite superhero comic books? If you do, then you might also remember that “giving up” is not what the superheroes teach us. Well, no one is going to get a neutron laser or an indestructible shield for sure! However, there are some effective and invaluable lessons every business owner can learn from his favorite superhero, and implement them on the business battlefield."

Communication: Platforms like Google+ and LinkedIn groups offer the perfect platform from which teams and managers can stay on the same page about projects, tasks and internal team briefings. Video chats, instant updates and group postings make it simple to touch base from anywhere with a large number of people. Calendar tools (like Outlook and Google Calendar) enable easy synchronization of important meetings and conferences
