Mike Klintworth's insight:

The stand-out leader is not “great;” they are unforgettable, distinctive, outlandish, memorable, mind-blowing and contrarian.

Stop Penalizing Boys for Not Being Able to Sit Still at School

Stop Penalizing Boys for Not Being Able to Sit Still at School | Maximizing Human Potential | Scoop.it

This year's end-of-year paper purge in my middle school office revealed a startling pattern in my teaching practices: I discipline boys far more often than I discipline girls. Flipping through the pink and yellow slips - my school's system for communicating errant behavior to students, advisors, and parents - I found that I gave out nearly twice as many of these warnings to boys than I did to girls, and of the slips I handed out to boys, all but one was for disruptive classroom behavior.

5 Ways to Get Employees to Love Your Leaders | Human Capital Media

5 Ways to Get Employees to Love Your Leaders | Human Capital Media | Maximizing Human Potential | Scoop.it

Communication is at the core of the employee-supervisor relationship. Talent managers and leaders can help facilitate positive — if not loving — working relationships by building an honest, autonomous workplace culture. When employees feel appreciated, they are more engaged and productive, leading to better business results and a happier, healthier work environment.

Knowing that leaders directly impact employees work environment, not wanting to be that "Horrible Boss" might motivate us to be the best boss we can be.  These 5 tips are good jumping off points, but I suggest these are not all inclusive!   Of these, it seems that number 3 & 4 are communication related...making time to talk and keeping everyone in the loop... challenging but essential to building relationships. 

Which of these do you like in your leader?

John Michel's curator insight, January 15, 6:59 PM

Employees don’t want to be treated like cogs in a machine. They want to understand their role in the big picture. Autonomy, the degree to which people feel they have control over their work, contributes to overall motivation and trust.

A leader’s emotional self-control is like a car’s gas tank: some folks’ tanks are bigger, but eventually, all tanks run out of gas. Leaders who stay tuned into their “fuel level” are able to refill before damaging their work relationships.

John Michel's curator insight, January 15, 11:16 AM

Good leaders empower their people to take chances and make decisions that might not work out. They realize this is the way most people learn and that most mistakes aren’t life threatening. When you let someone try something and fail, you are telling them in big, bold letters that you believe in them. You know they want to succeed and will learn from their experiences.

Kip Michael Kelly's curator insight, January 13, 1:55 PM

It has become standard procedure for companies to screen job candidates based on their social media profiles. A recent NC State study, however, suggests that the practice may actually drive away qualified applicants who feel that their privacy has been compromised. 

“There’s something to be said for doing this in a way that seeks the applicant’s permission,” paper co-author Thompson says. “It’s possible that if that is handled well, that could even reflect positively on an organization.”
