Of all the numerous organs that make up the human body, there’s no question that the brain is the most fascinating and least understood. Indeed, thanks to the burgeoning field of neuroscience, we’re not only discovering new insights into how this vital organ functions, but we’re also beginning to appreciate the depth of its complexity and mysterious nature.

How to Deliver Bad News to Your Employees

How to Deliver Bad News to Your Employees | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Delivering bad news is tough. It’s even harder when you don’t agree with the message or decision you’re communicating. Maybe you have to tell your star performer that HR turned down her request for a raise or to inform your team that the company doesn’t want them working from home any longer. Should you toe the line and act like you agree with the decision or new policy? Or should you break ranks and explain how upset you are too?

The Most Productive Way to Develop as a Leader

The Most Productive Way to Develop as a Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Everybody loves self-improvement. We want to get smarter, network better, be connected, balance our lives, and so on. That’s why we’re such avid consumers of “top 10” lists of things to do to be a more effective, productive, promotable, mindful — you name it — leader. We read all the lists, but we have trouble sticking to the “easy steps” because while we all want the benefits of change, we rarely ever want to do the hard work of change.

(From the article): Playfulness changes your mind-set from a performance focus to a learning orientation. One of the biggest reasons we don’t stretch beyond our current selves is that we are afraid to suffer a hit to our performance. A playful posture might help John feel less defensive about his old identity — after all, he’s not forever giving up his “secret sauce” and fountain of past success, he’s just practicing his bad swing.

John Michel's curator insight, March 29, 11:30 AM

Much research shows how play fosters creativity and innovation. I’ve found that the same benefits apply when you are playful with your self-concept. Playing with your own notion of yourself is akin to flirting with future possibilities.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, March 30, 9:39 AM

Self-improvement requires a commitment to being the best person and leader you can be.

Building a Collaborative Enterprise

Building a Collaborative Enterprise | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Collaborative communities encourage people to continually apply their unique talents to group projects—and to become motivated by a collective mission, not just personal gain or the intrinsic pleasures of autonomous creativity. By marrying a sense of common purpose to a supportive structure, organizations are mobilizing knowledge workers’ talents and expertise in flexible, highly manageable group-work efforts. The approach fosters not only innovation and agility but also efficiency and scalability.

Four keys to creating a culture of trust and teamwork. 


One of the principles mentioned in this article is shared purpose


In focusing on a shared purpose collaborative communities seek a basis for trust and organizational cohesion that is more robust than self-interest. 


A shared purpose is not the verbiage on a poster or in a document, and it doesn’t come via charismatic leaders’ pronouncements. It is multidimensional, practical, and constantly enriched in debates about concrete problems.

Some Amazing TED Talks on How to Be A Leader - EdTech & MLearning | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Leadership comes with hard work but successful leadership entails more than just laboriousness, it calls for special traits that only a select few possess. Whether these traits are skills that can be developed or are a matter of biological endowment is something which still needs scientific back-up. Generally speaking, successful leaders do have something in common. They share a set of common characteristics such as : confidence, focus, trust, far-sightedness, accountability, enthusiasm, persistence, communication, determination, love of their work, and patience. Also, successful leaders are a joy to be around. They listen empathically and are a source of inspiration and zeal to the people around them.

Are you leading by example?  

donhornsby's curator insight, March 30, 8:46 AM

(From the article): Leading by example is an extremely effective leadership style. Some would say it’s the only one that works. Demonstrating it requires self-awareness to recognize any potential mismatch between your intentions and actions. If you can take the time periodically to reflect upon your leadership abilities, and then make appropriate calibrations to ensure the example you set is one worthy of following, then you are well on your way to building influence with those around you.

The most misunderstood phrase in corporate speak is “People are our greatest asset.” Those five words do more damage than good.

 

That was the hook as I began my speech this week at the Great Place to Work list announcement in Dubai .

 

I have gotten so that when I hear that phrase, to me it is a signal that whoever said it is not really connected about those assets. If you have to say it, you probably do not believe it yourself

3 Leadership Lessons from the Dinner Table

3 Leadership Lessons from the Dinner Table | New Leadership | Scoop.it
As leaders, we continually search for ways to improve, refine and hone our skills, abilities and demeanor. In this quest, we are consistently met with one immovable hurdle that limits our achievements…time. No matter how we adjust our schedules, there are consistently 24 hours in a day. We try to cheat Mother Nature and gain more usable time by sleeping less. This only works as a surge technique and not sustainable as less sleep over time loosens our focus and reminds us to remain mentally sharp, we must take proper care of our brain housing and sustainment system, also known as our bodies. For me, this means two things: Exercise and Eating. The first part is easy. Exercise is my time. It is time to clear my mind and lose myself in thought while achieving that Runner’s High to which many of us are so addicted. The second part is what I would like you to think about today. Are you eating properly? Are you being efficiently effective with this time, or are you wasting it merely obtaining sustenance for your body?
