You’ll never eliminate emergencies from your organization, nor should you. When a genuine crisis hits, the leader must be able to sound a genuine call to arms and “up” the level of urgency.

4 Ways Leaders Can Create a Candid Culture

4 Ways Leaders Can Create a Candid Culture | Maximizing Human Potential | Scoop.it
When leaders want to create an open culture where people are willing to speak up and challenge one another, they often start by listening. This is a good instinct. But listening with your ears will only take you so far. You also need to demonstrate with words that you truly want people to raise risky issues.
Mike Klintworth's insight:
When people don’t feel safe speaking up, leaders can show that it is safe by saying the hard things themselves.

It takes maturity and humility and wisdom to grasp that oftentimes the best thing you can do with that spotlight is to put it on those around you, so that they blossom in ways they didn’t realize were possible … and so that your organization can benefit fully from their fully developed talents.

Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's curator insight, July 3, 9:39 AM

Wow, I absolutely love this article!

 

What a powerful message to remind us that leadership is not about us, it is about helping our teams shine. 

 

So today if the positive spotlight is turned on you, turn it back to the team and let them shine!

70% of Time Could Be Used Better - How the Best CEOs Get the Most Out of Every Day

70% of Time Could Be Used Better - How the Best CEOs Get the Most Out of Every Day | Maximizing Human Potential | Scoop.it
The average tech CEO works about 300 days a year, 14 hours a day. That’s 4,200 hours a year. The stats for most other tech leaders and startup employees aren’t too far off. It sounds like a lot of time, but for most, it’s not enough. Nearly 30% of that time gets sunk into email. Another third gets spent in meetings — and studies show that half of those hours are completely wasted.
Looking at the schedule of a typical CEO, a full 70% of that time is sub-optimal, and I’ll back that up with my own experience. Prior to joining First Round as a partner, I served as Co-Founder and CEO for three companies, including LiveOps. Today, I meet with dozens of founders every week, helping them grow their teams and get more productivity out of themselves and the people they work with. They know they should be using every hour to move their companies forward, create great products, close deals and hire the best candidates. Many just can’t find the time. So, how do we get better?
This year, I spent several weeks leading up to our annual CEO Summit catching up with people I know who do a superhuman job at managing their time. My goal was to capture the tools, tips and hacks they use to make every work hour count. Below, I share eight strategies that have worked for them and for me, so we can all stop wasting time and missing out on opportunities.

donhornsby's curator insight, June 9, 8:35 AM

(From the article): When we speak in terms of rewards as motivators, this typically refers to an inanimate reward, such as money or a cookie. When the “reward” is in the form of greater interpersonal connection, say, a pat on the back from an authority figure you truly admire, or the flip side, perhaps a look of disapproval from someone whose respect and acceptance mean everything to you, suddenly rewards and punishments– in the form of belonging or the lack thereof– come back into motivational fashion in a hurry.
