How to Stop Micromanaging

How to Stop Micromanaging | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it

But there is a way to stop micromanaging in it’s tracks. It’s called delegating!

ozziegontang's insight:

You might want to check out @SusanScott and her Delegation/Decision Tree metaphor in Fierce Conversations. Excellent visualization of managing the delegation process by monitoring the decisions until the trust is established of the delegatee's decisions have been verified to be in alignment.

Why You Should Work for Free (Sometimes)

Why You Should Work for Free (Sometimes) | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it

ozziegontang's insight:

It is about contribution.  Each of us have a unique contribution.  When we share our contribution the world responds.  Nice article and understanding how we can help in ways that truly are a giving back through a passion project.  The Little Prince reminds us:  It is with the heart that one see rightly. For what is essential is invisible to the eye.


I would probably put it: Why I Choose to Work for Free (Sometimes)

"I have to get people to think I’m a careful, compassionate, caring leader, and then people will help me do things."

How The Best Leaders Build Trust

How The Best Leaders Build Trust | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it

Think about it this way: When trust is low, in a company or in a relationship, it places a hidden “tax” on every transaction:

 

every communication, every interaction, every strategy, every decision is taxed, bringing speed down and sending costs up.

 

My experience is that significant distrust doubles the cost of doing business and triples the time it takes to get things done.

The Servant Leadership example of Bill & Melinda Gates

The Servant Leadership example of Bill & Melinda Gates | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it

Servant Leadership The largest financial example of Servant Leadership to change the world is being led by Bill and Melinda Gates via their Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

ozziegontang's insight:

These words shared by Bill Gates at the 2007 Harvard Commencement say it well:


"We can make market forces work better for the poor if we can develop a more creative capitalism – if we can stretch the reach of market forces so that more people can make a profit, or at least make a living, serving people who are suffering from the worst inequities. We also can press governments around the world to spend taxpayer money in ways that better reflect the values of the people who pay the taxes."


"If we can find approaches that meet the needs of the poor in ways that generate profits for business and votes for politicians, we will have found a sustainable way to reduce inequity in the world. This task is open-ended. It can never be finished. But a conscious effort to answer this challenge will change the world.”

TEC Florida: Stories are an important part of Red Scott’s Leadership

TEC Florida: Stories are an important part of Red Scott’s Leadership | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it

A Leader, A Blue Vaser, A Storyteller Extraordinaire. This was written almost 5 years ago to honor Red Scott who touched my life and the life of so many.










ozziegontang's insight:

A dear friend, teacher, mentor, and leader has died. Red Scott's legacy will live on for many generations to come.


Red, like Pat Hyndman, gave all though their lives and will continue to give for many generations by the legacy they have left behind. Red was the consumate: green and growing.  Always learning. Always having a story to put it in a way that would get the point across and yet having Texas humor.


His message to us came in December:


Sent: 12/6/2012 2:04:10 P.M. Eastern Standard Time
Subj: <no subject>

 

Dear Family and Friends:

To quote the great Dandy Don Meredith:

"Turn out the lights - - the party is over."  Oh and, I have also been
advised to not buy any more green bananas.

As most of you know I was diagnosed with aggressive Prostate Cancer almost 8 years ago. Kathy and I vowed then that we would try to live a normal life and squeeze out ever ounce of "living" - - for what ever time was left. Boy oh boy what a wonderful ride we have had !  Thanks in no small part to a great team of doctors who are knowledgeable, caring and loving !

My Maternal Grandmother (Eliza Jane Patton) used to say to me as a little boy:  "He with 1000 friends has not one to spare!"  Eliza, I don't know if I ever hit the 1000 mark - - but I came pretty durn close...

I apologize to the many, many of you who have called or wanted to stop by. We turned you away simply to try to preserve what little strength I had left.  I hope you understand.

Worry not about me now. I am looking forward to the greatest reward of all - - to go be with my Lord & Savior - - Jesus Christ.

Red Scott

Curt Einstein would put it:  Tell me what you did and how you did it from A to Z.  If they couldn't tell the story of how it happened, then they may have been the boss but they didn't do it.

John Michel's curator insight, July 6, 2013 9:24 PM

One of the great challenges in running a fast-growth company is aligning your company's vision, mission, value, and culture with the daily activities of the business. It is vital, however, as the growth of your company is in part dictated by how quickly you can transfer these values from the mind of the owner to everyone else.

MIT--The 2 Most Underrated Leadership Skills includes storytelling

MIT--The 2 Most Underrated Leadership Skills includes storytelling | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it
VideoLeadership is changing. A big part is the impact of the Millennials. They are less apt to respond to command & control and respond much more positively to a different kind of leadership. Even a recession has not cured them of this.

Via Karen Dietz
ozziegontang's insight:

Read Karen's Insight.  Relating to Leadership and reflecting on Lee Thayer's 4+ decades focused on Leadership and High Performance, leaders don't have a Vision, the Vision has them. And the story they share allows others to choose to be part of that Vision.


As Karen shares: "It's the stories you as a leader share, and the stories told about a leader, that defines that signature. As the article says, it's a leader's values, experiences, and skills that make up that signature. Again, I'm saying that happens through the stories that are shared."

more...
Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 18, 2013 7:25 PM

I found this article really interesting because it is not your ordinary run-of-the mill article about leadership. Recent MIT studies have identified 2 essential leadership skills that are completely under the radar.


The first critical leadership skill is sense-making. The way they talk about this in the article is being able to make sense of the environment and its rapid changes, then being able to operate from that sense-making. This leads me to think how important storytelling is in that process -- listening for stories, being able to make sense from them, extrapolate meaning from that, and then sharing stories with that meaning to bring others on board.


The second critical leadership skill the study identified is innovation. No surprises there and that does not really connect to storytelling. But what does connect is the section of the article talking about a leader's leadership signature -- their unique way of leading. Now storytelling comes front and center again. It's the stories you as a leader share, and the stories told about a leader, that defines that signature. As the article says, it's a leader's values, experiences, and skills that make up that signature. Again, I'm saying that happens through the stories that are shared.


So this is a provocative read. And it won't take you long. Think about the insights here whether you are a leader in an enterprise, a manager, entrerpreneur, or small business firm.

Mark Taylor's curator insight, May 22, 2013 6:58 AM

This is beautiful. Every leader should read it. Fred is talking about what we call in Tribal Leadership, core values. Most of us don't choose power, wealth, youth, beauty, pleasure, or fame, These are outcomes; qualities such as love, justice, discipline, vision, kindness, compassion, commitment, and courage are choices. The first ones depend on external circumstances; the second ones depend on you. We can design our lives to be the people we want  and to make the difference in the world.

Rich Maxwell's curator insight, May 23, 2013 8:43 AM

Dave Logan, co-author of Tribal Leadership, speaks of crucible moments when very difficult circumstances call forth our greatness and, in many ways, our true selves.  Great leaders have these crucible moments (indeed we all do) and the author of this article identifies several of them while also presenting questions for you to answer as you seek out your special gifts, your greatness.  It is from this knowledge and utilization of our special gifts, when woven together with those of our colleagues, that great work cultures evolve.

ozziegontang's curator insight, June 20, 2013 8:35 PM

The quote of John Wooden says it: 


“True success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.”



Lee Thayer in his thought provoking and thought challenging book: Leadership: Thinking Being Doing shared:


"In all the world, there is no human e xperience that can compare to the exercise of the deeply-developed competencies required for the pursuit of a great and worthy achievement"


In the final paragraphs of the book he adds:


if you succeed, be humble. Others comspired with you to make it happen. You were blessed.


If you did not succeed, go backa nd fix the only things over which you have control: how you think, who you are, and how you do what you do. And make all of the tools required an integral part of who you are.

ozziegontang's curator insight, June 13, 2013 12:58 AM

In his answers neurologist Robert Burton reflects the thinking of Lee Thayer about thinking differently. Burton shares: "I prefer...questions to answers. I prefer ambiguity, mystery and awe to bottom-line explanations.  ...I recognize and often rejoice in the absurdity of human condition, and wouldn't want it any other way. If scients arrived at a final theory of everything. I would try not to read it."


Reflected in the thinking of Buddha we hear the same thing:


The Kalama Sutra

The Kalama Surta is the Buddha’s reply to a group of townspeople of Kalama. They asked Buddha who were they to believe of all the ascetics, sages, holy ones and teachers They came through their town confusing them with their contradictory truths, teachings, beliefs, and one true way. Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation of the Kalama Sutra: To the Kalamas from the Pali is a good read.


• Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it,
• Nor traditions because they are old and have been handed down from generation to generation and in many locations,
• Nor in rumor because it has been spoken by many,
• Nor in writings by sages because sages wrote them,
• Nor in one’s own fancies, thinking that it is such an extraordinary thought, it must have been inspired by a god or higher power,
• Nor in inferences drawn from some haphazard assumption made by us,
• Nor in what seems to be of necessity by analogy,
• Nor in anything merely because it is based on the authority of our teachers, masters, and elders.


However, after thorough observation, investigation, analysis and reflection, when you find that anything agrees with reason and your experience, and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, and of the world at large; accept only that as true, and shape your life in accordance with it; and live up to it.


These words, the Buddha went on to say, must be applied to his own teachings.

It's not what I know that gets me in trouble. It's what I know that just ain't so.

Similarly it is about what I do and not what I say.


This is about me living in a gender biased world and not seeing it because I see through men's shorts.

Mister Rogers, Boston Tragedy, & The Rest of The Story | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it
John Sutter says all of us are geared to help, and the responses to the Boston bombings show that.

Via Karen Dietz
ozziegontang's insight:

We are herd/pack animals who call ourselves human beings or social animals.  The helpers are people who revert back to their instinct to help a fellow man.  Often at peril to their own lives. Often sacrificing their own life to save another.  When you look at the derivation of "sacrifice" it is made up of two Latin words "sacra" and "facio"  that is "to make holy."


Bombshel says it beautifully. This is how I shared the Power of One back in 2010 about a dear friend, Rauni Prittinen King who is the co-founder with Dr. Mimi Guarneri of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine.

Cellphone inventor: What does he use now? | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it
Marty Cooper made the first cell phone call from a portable device 40 years ago this month.
ozziegontang's insight:

It has been a delight to meet Marty and Arlene through my dear friend Victor Geberin and his wife, Alison. 


What I walked away with from reading this article is Marty's words:


“Good technology is not technology at all unless it makes people’s lives better,” said Cooper. “They have gone about as far as they can go with the hardware. But hardware doesn’t count. It’s people that count.”


Jennifer Sertl's reminder about not losing our humanity when we believe that technology has the answers.  Or Lee Thayer's observations that communication is about our humanity and what we can become and can achieve if we can get our thinking right.


Taking the time to reflect, to be mindful, or to meditate by turning off all the technology and listening, being present and observing.


As Siddartha said:  I can wait, I can fast, and I can meditate.


It is with the heart that one see rightly. For what is essential is invisible to the eye.  The Little Prince

The Universal Language DISC, A Reference Manual | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it
ozziegontang's insight:

For those interested in the DISC profile, the numbers are:

Percentage of population with High C (page 180) – 8%
Percentage of population with High S (page 184) – 45%
Percentage of population with High I (page 188) – 29%
Percentage of population with High D (page 192) – 18%


For me, as a Vistage Chair for 26 years, it has been a wonderful teaching tool for communication. I always remember Meg Wheatly being asked what she was on the Myers-Briggs. Her answer: was: IDKAIDC.  I don't know, and I don't care.  I believe that she was addressing those who neglect getting to know the person and rather use an assessment.


Lee Thayer put is well in Leadership: Thinking, Being, Doing.  He talks about creating a Role Desciption rather than a Job Description.


A role description talks about the results that a position requires one to achieve.


A job description talks about the activities that one does in a position.


What has always been interesting to me is that the word "Job" is from the Anglo-Saxon and means: "a lump."  Like a lump of coal.  So 250 years ago they were saying you can't do a "job" of work.  W is about creating something that gives purpose, meaning and significance to one's life. For many that meant working on projects that would not be finished in their lifetime, yet it was contributing to their community.


Now, people are afraid of losing their "jobs."  How many in the US will be going from unemployed and onto disability? 


Read some of Karen Dietz's Just Story It. Life is Improv.  We are all under the same economic cloud at anytime.  Some will succeed and others will fall victim. If I can't imagine it, I can't create it.  What are each of us imagining and creating to contribute to the betterment of mankind.


Some of us may want to start with: Mindfulness as a practice. Then realizing that how I think is who I become and from that being flows the habits that show themselves in what I do...and don't do.  Back to: Be, Do, Be, Do, Be, Do.

The Community of Leaders » Trustworthy Leadership

The Community of Leaders » Trustworthy Leadership | Mindfulness & The Mindful Leader | Scoop.it

One of the business issues gaining in importance is the trust – or lack of trust – that we have in our large corporations.

ozziegontang's insight:

In Vistage, the foundation of its Values, at the base of a triagle is: Trust. Up one side is Caring, up the other side is Challenge, and in the middle is growth.


Dan Ariely speak about the Cost of the Social Norm which is based on Trust and Social Relationships. The Market Norm is based on Financial Transactions.  When the Social Norm is replaced by the Market Norm he says it is extremely difficult if not impossible to regain the trust.


Trust cannot be bought, it must be earned.


If you lose my trust by your behavior, then I can trust that I cannot trust you.


Lee Thayer speaks of Leadership is a role that one plays. If one plays it well and is had by a vision that may outlast them, then history recognizes them as leaders. Those who we recognize as historical leaders did not have access to the 10,000 books that we have today on Leaderhship, yet what they accomplished was because of their competence at doing what needed to be done to accomplish their leadership role.


As Simon Sinek reminds us:  They had followers.
