Leadership isn't an individual act; it's an ensemble performance | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
Leaders can only lead in participation with others being led, so why do most business schools cling to notions of individualism?

Creative Leadership Means Being Present | Innovation Management

Creative Leadership Means Being Present | Innovation Management | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
The ability for being present is not something mystic. Most everyone recognizes it and has experienced it in themselves and others at some time or another. However, it is not always easy to talk about, precisely because it involves more than our cognitive and verbal abilities. It is also a crucial aspect of creative leadership. THNK encourages its future leaders to be as present as they can be. A nice example of how leadership can unfold while being present is in the journey of one of our partic

Why You Need a Vacation Even More Than You Think

Why You Need a Vacation Even More Than You Think | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

There is a reason to take vacations. That reason is to simply stop.

This summer I took my first vacation in more than two years. It was not easy. Taking a vacation is a very specific conundrum for the impassioned small businessman. There is no good time to do it. There is no time when it seems there is not a Sword of Damocles looming over our high-risk, very personal business creations. There is no time when we do not need four times as many hours as there are in the workweek. It seems unimaginable to take a true existential furlough from our labor.

Workaholism is a habit. It is an addiction. It needs to be fought each day with tools like meditation, prayer, yoga, and exercise. But it also needs the occasional Big Break.

How to Have a Coaching Conversation - Center for Creative Leadership | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
Coaching isn’t just something that specialized professionals do. In fact, some of the most powerful coaching experiences are informal exchanges in the hallways, cafeterias, offices and other workspaces in the course of everyday work.

Coaching conversations are an important means by which experiences are turned into learning, and nearly anyone can conduct them.

In this series, professionals explain how to lead in times of turmoil or growth. Read the posts, then write your own (use #HowILead in the body of your post).As Peter Drucker said years ago, stable times require excellence and good management. As we transition to a new age, our organizations need more; they need leadership. So managers shouldn’t just manage. Today they need to lead and think of themselves primarily as leaders rather than just managers. In the past, tinkering could do the trick.

Sensitive People Aren't Weak, They're Actually Natural-Born Leaders: You can’t lead without empathy.

Sensitive People Aren't Weak, They're Actually Natural-Born Leaders: You can’t lead without empathy. | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

Sensitivity is perhaps the most underrated quality in the world. It’s too often associated with fragility and weakness when it’s actually a tremendous strength.

Sensitive people are insightful and intelligent enough both to recognize and comprehend their own emotions. They’re also courageous enough to exhibit them in public.

Many of us would rather live in denial than acknowledge vulnerability. In turn, we never conquer our greatest fears and inner obstacles.

The world needs more people with sensitive souls, as they’re innately self-aware and empathetic. Individuals with these qualities are natural leaders.

1. What's it like to be on the other side of me? Are others around me flourishing? 2. How can I improve? 3. Who currently has permission to call me out and say the hard things to me that I need to hear? 4. How do I respond in moments of crisis? Do I chew people out when something is not done right? 5. Am I truly self aware? Where/what are my blind spots in my leadership? Am I a secure confident leader? 6. Do I talk more than I listen? 7. What do I need to learn from my most recent failures? 8. How do I lead people way different than me? 9. Am I comfortable surrounding myself with people who are better at their jobs than I am? 10. Who else should I be learning from? Who is currently coaching or mentoring me? BONUS: Who am I grooming/coaching to replace me in my current role?

Basic points on the collaborative and individual eLearning space students are asked to enter. How does an instructor cater to their students many different ways of learning while keeping their interest? Get your students involved and allow them to be active learners rather than passive learners! This article does a nice brief overview of the difference between having students do passive or active activities in the eLearning class. I think this can also be applied to in class activities too.

Abby Yanow's curator insight, July 10, 11:28 AM

Here's what I like about this article: "When you are not in charge of a meeting and it’s becoming a waste of time, you don’t have to suffer in silence."  I feel strongly about building the capacity of team members to take a leadership/facilitative role so that they can raise questions about how the conversation is going and what can be improved in the moment.  They don't have to leave this to the facilitator, or team leader, especially if that person doesn't know how to do this well.  So we want them to be able to speak up when: the conversation is going off track, when people are interrupting each other, when the meeting ends without clarity on next steps.  As a team coach, I love this element of skill building.
