5 Tips to Avoid a Critical Leadership Mistake

5 Tips to Avoid a Critical Leadership Mistake | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I knew Gary wasn’t happy.

Early in my career, when I first began leading team-leaders, one of them was clearly struggling – he looked frustrated, sounded frustrated, and it didn’t take a genius to know something was bothering Gary.

So I asked if I could buy him lunch and hear what was on his mind.

As we ate, he began sharing complaint after complaint…he’d been disrespected and abused by a senior manager, his team wasn’t doing as well as he hoped, he wasn’t sure the company’s vision matched his own…and so on.

Gary had appreciated my invitation to lunch and the opportunity to be heard.

But as he started sharing his concerns, I couldn’t stand it…

How "lean planning" can help you start and grow your business quickly | New Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’re starting your business, you’ll know that writing a comprehensive business plan can be time-consuming.

Enter “lean planning.”

The best leaders are definitely story-tellers?

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, January 27, 1:53 AM

Powerful stories are told with conviction and the most powerful are often told on the basis of personal experience. 


Learning to articulate your powerful personal learning experiences as stories will not only help you to reflect on your learning and therefore make it more powerful, but also help you share your learning with others and influence them to take action.  Leadership indeed!

James Hutchison's curator insight, January 28, 11:01 AM

Of course you reach people by telling stories - it's how we make sense out of life - you can give the theory but you have to provide real world examples and that's why we have stories. Stories help us understand life. But if you tell a story to teach a moral I would suggest that unless you live by that story's moral lesson it doesn't matter how many stories you tell - nobody will believe you. Telling a good story is one thing but having integrity is another.

The smartest teams were distinguished by three characteristics:

1) members contributed more equally

2) members were better able to read complex emotional states

3) women outperformed men

 

Future studies replicated the results, regardless for mode of interaction. 

 

Contemplative Dialogue can easily lead teams/families/communities to becoming "smart teams" and rediscover one another and our great human capacities.

Should Mission Statements Be Mission Questions?

Should Mission Statements Be Mission Questions? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Whether or not the mission statement is phrased as a question, it should be subject to constant questioning:

 

Does it still make sense today?

 

Are we, as a company, still living up to it (if we ever did)?

 

Is the mission growing and pulling us forward?

 

And lastly, Are we all on this mission together?

donhornsby's curator insight, January 27, 8:16 AM

(From the article): Whether mission questions come from throughout the ranks or are posed by leaders themselves, the point is to keep asking, What are we doing? Why are we doing it? How might we do it better? As Shaich says, “Figuring out what you want to accomplish is a continual search— and questions are the means to the search.”
