The Top 5 Mistakes of Unsuccessful Leaders

The Top 5 Mistakes of Unsuccessful Leaders | Mindful Leadership | Scoop.it
The best mistakes are learning experience that aren’t repeated.

 

Mistakes that don’t hurt don’t matter. The worst mistakes are the ones that hurt others. The trouble with leadership is your mistakes always hurt others.

 

The top 5 mistakes of unsuccessful leaders:

 

Not being open to criticism.

 

Trying to hide mistakes.

 

Not making decisions.

 

Failing to explain objectives.

 

Telling people how to do things rather than telling them what needs to be done and letting them figure out how to do it.

ASPEL Editor's curator insight, January 14, 2:01 AM

Often times we are faced with the temptation to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. However, a good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. If your leader lacks some level of peripheral vision, it can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. We need strategic leaders who will foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. Find out how to become the strategic leader your company needs!

Empathy in Leadership – 10 Reasons Why It Matters - TanveerNaseer.com | Mindful Leadership | Scoop.it

Last week I had the distinct pleasure of co-hosting the weekly #LeadFromWithin tweetchat with Lolly Daskal. The subject of my chat was “The Role of Empathy in Leadership” and I have to say I was gratified by both the level of participation and depth of contributions/insights which arose during the discussion (click here to download a PDF copy of the chat transcript).

 

Although I’ve written previously about the importance of empathy in leadership, I want to use last week’s talk as an opportunity to delve into this issue more, sharing some of the points I provided during the talk, as well as some of the insights proffered by the various participants. Here are the ten questions I asked participants as we discussed the role empathy plays in leadership.

John Michel's curator insight, November 16, 2013 6:46 AM

Let’s be honest, when it comes to the keys for successful leadership, empathy is rarely included in such a list. However, instilling a sense of empathy in how you lead those under your care offers a number of advantages:

"Amit Dodani, a 15-year-old from Los Angeles, CA, talks about 'My Name My Story'--his youth-run leadership program to inspire the next generation of leaders."

 

"I encourage young people like myself to find their passion and run with it! Everyone's talents can be used for the greater good. For an athlete, it may be teaching disabled children how to play their sport. For a musician, it may be holding a charity concert to raise money for cancer. For a scientist, it may be working with corporations on finding new developments in medicine that can cure millions. For a writer, it may be writing inspirational poetry that moves people in healthy directions. For me, it is public speaking. I recently realized my words really can make a difference."

Defining your proposition and message, and living up to it, will contribute powerfully to your career progression. And when you get to the top, don’t think you need to change your approach.  Brands exist in the hearts and minds of the people who use them, and if you suddenly try to change them, you alienate the customer, which doesn’t do you an awful lot of good.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 28, 2013 5:07 AM

(From the article): To successfully engage in organizational change, everyone involved needs to be aware of the details of the change so that they can determine how it will affect them.  Communication also allows every member of the team to gain insight which can also help everyone better adjust to the change. Leaders must make team members aware that their input and feedback is valuable. Engage others in the process to create an avenue of support that will help minimize the fear of change, and empower everyone in the organization.
