It is far more powerful to influence than manipulate.

The Best Leaders Shine from Within

The Best Leaders Shine from Within | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it
There is an old fable by Aseop about a man, the wind, and the sun. One day the wind and the sun were talking about which was stronger. When they saw a man walking below in his overcoat, they decided to see who was more powerful. They dared each other to a contest: who could …

Roy Sheneman, PhD's curator insight, April 8, 10:05 AM

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is arguably the single most important predictor of leader success. It is all about being able to understand and control yourself while being aware of others. 

Kudos's curator insight, April 10, 10:26 AM

The best leaders are always ones that can relate to their team, keep a calm demeanour in crisis or conflict and work to support their team to help make them better verses dictating or blaming for what is wrong. The best Managers look for what their team does right and recognizes those behaviours and results. Managing people well is much harder then it looks, recognizing people for what they do well and how they contribute is a great place to start to be a good emotional intelligent leader.

Five years ago I was working as an attorney in our Law department when I was offered a leadership position in an entirely new area—corporate strategy.

Why Saying This Four-Letter Word Can Transform Your Productivity

Why Saying This Four-Letter Word Can Transform Your Productivity | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Perfectionists are often reminded that "done is better than perfect." But it turns out there’s another reason we should all try to create more "done" moments in our workdays.

Saying the word done can help you get more accomplished on your to-do list. "Telling ourselves that we’re done creates not only an emotional reaction but a physiological response as well," says Leslie Sherlin, a psychologist, neuroperformance specialist, and the cofounder of the brain-training company SenseLabs.

These seven proven ways are important for us because few of us are ready to speak out in meetings, few of us are ready to take up challenging work, few of us believe about showcasing our achievments and some of us don't take credit for exemplary work. In a world of cut throat competition, one has to speak out for oneself, and one has to step in before a totally unrelated person takes credit to a job done well!

If you find that your company is rewarded (promoted) for some (or all) of the above reasons, you have to make a decision, quit and find an organization that applies meritocracy, or stick to change the satuo quo or to adapt and use it, IS YOUR DECISION, ARE YOUR VALUES!

…Wherever your own attitude along the continuum, Sherif and Hovland argued, you are willing to entertain some other views, but only within a narrow range around your own attitude—this range is the latitude of acceptance, or “OK zone.”…

Induire un changement n'est pas seulement dans les mains du boss. Nous sommes tous des leaders, en mesure d'influencer les autres à changer. Juste exiger ne suffit pas. Il faut obtenir le buy-in et y aller pas à pas. L'article illustre ceci avec un exemple.

(From the article): Whether you’re buying new printers, reducing bias…or merging departments, revising reporting relationships, or anything else…consider using the power of baby steps in your change initiative. By investing just a bit of up-front effort, you’ll almost certainly achieve stronger and more widespread support.
