Cultivating Collective Mindfulness: The Leader’s New Work

Cultivating Collective Mindfulness: The Leader’s New Work | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

The reality is that we—all of us, not just the financial elite—are the collective sleepwalkers. How do we wake up? Why is it that, across so many major systems, we collectively create results that nobody wants? Nobody wants to increase environmental destruction, poverty, cultural ADHD, or suicide. Yet we keep doing it. Why do we collectively recreate these patterns?

True leadership mindfulness ... transitioning from "me" to "we"!

Graeme Reid's curator insight, February 13, 2014 5:23 PM

A great thought-provoking article.  I get the sense that we are beginning to wake up to our realities of diminishing resources, lack of purpose, unhappiness etc - what is needed is a catalyst to speed up the rate of change.

Emotional intelligence is a skill set. It can be developed through attention and practice. In doing so, you set yourself and others up for greater success in your joint endeavours, be they work projects, family life or as a teacher the learning of the students you work with each day.

Feeling Overwhelmed? Remember "RAIN" - Mindful

Feeling Overwhelmed? Remember "RAIN" - Mindful | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
Over the last several decades, through my work with tens of thousands of clients and meditation students, I’ve come to see the pain of perceived deficiency as epidemic. It’s like we’re in a trance that causes us to see ourselves as unworthy. Yet, I have seen in my own life, and with countless others, that we can awaken from this trance through practicing mindfulness and self-compassion. We can come to trust the goodness and purity of our hearts.

In order to flower, self-compassion depends on honest, direct contact with our own vulnerability. Compassion fully blossoms when we actively offer care to ourselves. To help people address feelings of insecurity and unworthiness, I often introduce mindfulness and compassion through a meditation I call the RAIN of Self-Compassion. The acronym RAIN, first coined about 20 years ago by Michele McDonald, is an easy-to-remember tool for practicing mindfulness.

The change we feel is broad, which is why our adaptation must be holistic.

John Lasschuit ®™'s curator insight, April 1, 2:41 PM

By Elizabeth Doty: As a leader, communicating can sometimes feel like Groundhog Day. No matter how hard you try to get your message across, it is all too easy to find the next day that you face the same blank stares, predictable objections, and questions that indicate that you failed to make it stick — that people just aren’t getting it..

Emerging World's curator insight, April 8, 11:05 AM

In today’s fast-paced economy leaders are bringing together teams with diverse experiences, resources and perspectives to identify game changing opportunities for their organisations. However, for such collaboration to succeed, genuine communication is essential. This article in Strategy + Business offers advice for leaders looking to master the art of two-way communication:

 

  1. Slow down - create the opportunity for people to come to you with new information, questions, or ideas.
  2. Create a safe space – it is important it is to create psychological safety, if you want to explore diverse views and foster ideas.
  3. Ask inviting questions - Questions help you focus a conversation without limiting creativity.
  4. Listen with a willingness to be influenced - The best way to improve communication is to focus on the listening part. How much time do you (really) allow for listening to others and what they want to discuss?
  5. Use reflection to deepen the learning - You can build the skills for dialogue by periodically pausing to reflect on your conversation. Simply ask people to call out what is working and ways the group might engage more effectively.
  6. Summarize and ask for commitment - As two-way conversations are usually wide-ranging, it is very important to recap what was discovered, where you are now, and what is needed next.

 

When considering opportunities to develop leaders’ two-way communication skills, Action Learning incorporates the elements recommended here, whilst allowing diverse groups to work together to identify creative solutions to real problems.

How to Measure Culture Change Without Killing It

How to Measure Culture Change Without Killing It | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
In a classic article for the Journal for Strategic Performance Measurement, Margaret Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers explain that behaviors – “commitment, focus, teamwork, learning, quality”(...), people paying “attention to those things that contribute to performance (...) are never produced by measurement. They are performance capabilities that emerge as people feel connected to their work and to each other. They are capacities that emerge as colleagues develop a shared sense of what they hope to create together (...). Each of these qualities and behaviors (...) is a choice that people make”. However, “measurement is critical” and the authors provide some insightful perspectives on design criteria for measure processes.

The impact of social networks on leadership behaviour

Dominant streams in leadership literature conceptualise it either as a role within sociopolitical structure or as a behavioural predisposition of agents. In this article, a number of hypotheses are tested via an empirical case study where interaction and affiliation networks across multiple decision experiments are coupled with attribute and psychometric data of the actors.  Findings suggest that in egalitarian political systems, centrality in social networks is directly associated with political success, while in political systems imbued with power inequalities successful actors are idiocentric brokers. The use of attitudinal micro-surveys, psychometric tests, observation and relational surveys is combined for a comprehensive mapping of group dynamics suited to questions of agency.

True innovation starts with ditching the ideal of perfection.

 

Studies have shown that self-doubt can potentially be a major hurdle to women's success. There's evidence we might not ask for a promotion, apply for a job we're absolutely qualified for or execute on a big idea because we're not as confident in our abilities as men.

In her post: “How to Influence Without Authority”, Jesse Lyn Stoner offers useful guidance on the what she calls as “8 Portals of Influence”. Whether you lead backed by a formal authority or you lead without a title, these ideas should help you build influence.

 

    1. Character – Your own character is your greatest source of influence.
    2. Expertise – Do you have content knowledge and experience? Are you a thought leader?
    3. Information – Do you have access to valuable information?
    4. Connectedness – Do you form close relationships with people? Do they enjoy working with you? 
    5. Social intelligence – Do you offer insight into interpersonal issues that interfere with work and help facilitate resolution of issues? P
    6. Network – Do you put the right people in touch with each other? 
    7. Collaboration – Do you seek win-win solutions, unify coalitions and build community? 
    8. Funding – Do you have access to financial support?

Innovation leadership refers to the different leadership styles needed to influence employees’ innovative behaviour to generate creative ideas that promote innovative products, services, and solutions in organisations.

This style of leadership is one that fosters the following nine dimensions which are critical to promote a climate conducive to creative thinking and organisational innovation. The corresponding questions for each dimension will assist you to determine how many boxes you can tick, and whether innovative leadership is happening within your team/organisation.
