Why True Leadership Is Defined By Employee Personal Growth

Why True Leadership Is Defined By Employee Personal Growth | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Take a look at the great leaders of history, and you’ll notice one key similarity. Lincoln, Churchill, Mandela, for example – they all held the interest of the people at the heart of their campaigns. Even in the workplace, it’s this ability to put others first that enables managers to succeed where their predecessors failed. While you probably don’t have to face the same level of adversity as some of history’s finest, you can still use the underlying principles of their success to fuel your own.


True leaders cannot consider themselves successful unless those they lead prosper too. Self-promotion might make for a great personal record, but it doesn’t point to the work of a team player. Leadership shouldn’t be solely about achieving great sales statistics or reaching corporate targets. There should also be a degree of personal development for every member of your team.

Most Leaders Stink at Setting Goals – Here’s Why

Most Leaders Stink at Setting Goals – Here’s Why | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Can we be real with each other for just a minute? I may be branded a leadership heretic by what I’m about to say but I’ve got to be honest. Here goes: Setting goals is hard work. It can be tedious. It can be as enjoyable as a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. I sometimes struggle with the process. And I’m not alone. Most leaders stink at setting goals.

Why? It’s pretty simple actually: We confuse tasks with goals.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 29, 9:32 AM
Groupthink is a product of a lack of trust, but it is also a cultural phenomenon. Perhaps it is so ingrained in the way things are done that it is hard to shake free. Schools abound with groupthink as people focus on managing rather than leading. It will take courageous leaders and followers to step out of those shadows.

Ask them if they're ready!
That has especially helped me when delivering feedback.
Four steps to make your criticism feel constructive @AdamMGrant

1. Explain why you’re giving the feedback 
2. Take yourself off a pedestal
 3. Ask if the person wants feedback 
4. Have a transparent dialogue, not a manipulative monologue

People are remarkably open to criticism when they believe it’s intended to help them.

More Important than Knowing When to Lead is Knowing When to Follow

More Important than Knowing When to Lead is Knowing When to Follow | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Leadership is not a title or position; it’s power, but not power in the sense that we usually think about power. It is the power to inspire others to do more than they ever thought possible in the best interest of the greater good. On the flipside, anyone can become a follower regardless of the position that they hold. So, why would you ever want to follow if you can lead? The most effective leaders understand that they do not know everything, neither are they always the ones with the greatest influence. Being a great leader requires knowing when to lead and when to follow. Here are four questions to ask yourself to determine whether you should be leading or following.
