Darrington Lee's curator insight, March 7, 10:38 PM

I think that leadership is important. One evidence is already in this news, where is it shown that leadership is taught so long time ago just because of its importance. In my opinion learning leadership is important as it prepare us for our adulthood, where more responsibility had to be taken with initiative. Leadership is also a gauge on how much have you grown intellectually, as showen from Sun Tzi's advices.

Three Lessons From Gandhi’s Experiments In Truth

Three Lessons From Gandhi’s Experiments In Truth | MettaSolutions Change and Leadership | Scoop.it
Is life a series of successes and failures, or an experiment?I invite you to reflect on your life over the past five years. Consider the key events that shaped your experience, that helped form how you view the world today. How do you feel about those experiences? What is the story about your past that shapes how you see the world today?These questions came to me as I finished reading Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography, titled “Experiments in Truth”. Gandhi’s emphasis on life as an experiment is an important distinction to a typical perspective of life as a series of successes and failures.

Empathy and Good Managers

Empathy and Good Managers | MettaSolutions Change and Leadership | Scoop.it

The traditional view of management is to drive results at all costs. Be hard on employees and they will perform. That employees’ personal lives don't matter, as they have nothing to do with work. Yet we know today that employees’ personal and professional lives do collide. Today’s workplace environment calls for an evolved way of management and of leadership. Today’s managers need to tap into other motivators to get results and inspire the best performance from employees.

On Leadership, Humility and the Self-Discovered Leader

Roy Sheneman, PhD's curator insight, February 27, 8:50 AM

Leadership without emotional energy is useless beyond the academic.  Leadership within the context of emotional energy is priceless and powerful. 

donhornsby's curator insight, February 27, 9:05 AM

(From the article): When it comes to learning true leadership, characteristics like servanthood and followership immediately come to mind.

 

But many other aspects also fall into this category. These are like the ability to:

 

Cultivate wisdomDevelop genuine humilityNurture a heart of gratitudeOr even summon courage when it really counts

And the reason is fairly simple: these are the highly personal aspects of real leadership that only come through a deliberate and life-long commitment to self-discovery.

Like the wise Bob Burg says, "Interrupters can't be Influencers".


Good post here via @MettaSolutions on how to STOP and LISTEN.  


Tip #6 is very applicable:


6. Silence is your friend. Don’t be afraid of a lull, a quietude, a silent period. Don’t yield every time to the temptation to fill the void. Be patient, revel in what Patrick O’Brian called “companionable silence.” Let your interview subject speak, and fill the quiet.



Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 26, 2014 10:28 AM

When I think of people who have impacted me in life, they have been great listeners. They did not impose something on me, but helped me find a place where I could figure things out. Great teachers are great listeners. They take time and have deep patience.

John Michel's curator insight, May 26, 2014 10:26 PM

In the social sector, there is sometimes a prejudice against feasibility and planning studies – they’re seen as a fee source for consultants and a way for Boards to cover their hind quarters. But in my view, the interviews are worth their weight in gold – often quite literally. People want to be heard, they want to tell you what they think. They may even want to help. So pipe down, and listen.

As work gets more complex, 6 rules to simplify

As work gets more complex, 6 rules to simplify | MettaSolutions Change and Leadership | Scoop.it

“Why do people feel so miserable and disengaged at work? Because today's businesses are increasingly and dizzyingly complex -- and traditional pillars of management are obsolete, says Yves Morieux. So, he says, it falls to individual employees to navigate the rabbit's warren of interdependencies. In this energetic talk, Morieux offers six rules for "smart simplicity." (Rule One: Understand what your colleagues actually do.)”

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction | MettaSolutions Change and Leadership | Scoop.it
In a workplace infused with top down, hierarchical, departmental silos, change management is the new requirement for leadership success. With a market comprised of fickle consumers and workplaces brimming with employee identity crises, leadership success requires more patience, poise, and time-to-think – and the ability to seamlessly connect the dots of opportunity. The marketplace requirements to compete are evolving so quickly that leadership is struggling to stay ahead of the course; unsuccessful efforts to be proactive and sustain organizational readiness will come at an extremely high cost. As such, the demand for leadership that is willing and capable of tackling change management head-on – already in short supply – is at a premium. Leadership in the 21st century not only requires the ability to continuously manage crisis and change – but also the circular vision to see around, beneath and beyond the obvious in order to anticipate the unexpected before circumstances force your hand. As you embark upon your change management journey, here are ten things that will challenge your capabilities as a change agent and potentially become defining moments along your leadership success path.

Well, I think, it's obvious and might even be frightening... the "only" somewhat plan-able part is the development of your team (meaning the smaller ones and the company-wide). By development I mean their involvement, their engagement and commitment, their alignment and also their carrier... because they will be with you and will follow you and be willing - if involved properly - to align with your/the company's plan if their needs are also taken into account - in the measure of possibility... if they handled as partners in the chaotic jungle of today's business world and who can count on you and who in turn you can count on...
