The Most Important Leadership Behavior That Builds Trust (and 3 ways to demonstrate it)

What does it mean for a leader to act with integrity?

donhornsby's curator insight, August 29, 9:33 AM

(From the article): The cost of not acting with integrity is immense and recovering from a breach of integrity is perhaps one of the most difficult challenges a leader can face. That’s because people perceive integrity to be about who you are as a leader, not just what you do. One only needs to look at today’s news headlines to see the devastating effects of these failures. Politicians resigning from office, corporate leaders arrested for wrongdoing, celebrities losing millions from lost endorsements, and spiritual leaders being disgraced are all results from not acting with a sense of integrity.

(From the article): I see so many managers who ignore or are blind to the importance of building a strong context in their team. They manage their teams in a command-control style believing that if they oversee all the details rigorously they’ll eliminate the likelihood of shortfalls and ensure all the key milestones are met. This behavior comes from a paradigm of “I don’t trust my people to own the game and do whatever is needed to ensure success” And, these managers are right! Their behavior is self-fulfilling. It causes people to operate in a mode of fear, resentment and compliance. People do the minimum to get the job done but they don’t apply half their passion, commitment or resourcefulness to the game.

 

Attending to the context alone will also not sustain because un-channeled enthusiasm will not be productive over time. When people will realize that progress and results are not being achieved they’ll quickly become discouraged and cynical.

Failure is often seen as the opposite of success, as a culmination of bad decisions or choices. In business, this could mean missing sales quota, missing project delivery dates, or simply missing company objectives. On a much larger scale this can look like a full-scale business failure, layoffs, or bankruptcy. So why is failure important

Can Overthinking Reduce a Leader's Influence?

Can Overthinking Reduce a Leader's Influence? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

We've all seen this: The CEO who acts instinctively, sometimes with terrible results, keeps his or her job and even develops a loyal following. Meanwhile, the thinker in the executive suite who consistently offers the right, deliberated answer rarely gets a promotion.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, August 25, 3:35 AM

Well, rest the common sense of the right balance... all attempts to break into actionable pieces what is in the very actual situation is impossible are futile... sometimes intuition is better than too much thinking and sometimes intuition puts things astray...it's a bit mote complicated than "less thinking & moreintuition"" (see books like "Think twice",  "Think again" or Kahneman's...)...

 

Of course and it' an interesting aspect that the  staff is how influenced by how the decision is made... decisions might be powerful  and  with full of confidence made by either by more thinking by more by intuition, the essence is the  congruity, the authenticity of those making it and the transparence of the process...

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, August 25, 4:54 AM

I guess it is time we realised that overthinking and overanalyzing do not give good returns after all! The ideal CEO is a person who can handle various tasks without getting bogged down by a single task due to over thinking. However, there are many of us who become obsessed with somehow getting to the rooot of a particular problem without realising that we are neglecting other tasks!

Carol Rine's curator insight, August 24, 9:35 PM

Powerful article...I see it happening already.

Rebecca Renck's curator insight, August 25, 9:43 AM

This is a wake-up call to something we already know.  Our world is changing drastically and this means in ever increasing relation to how we make a living and how our children will make a living in the not so distant future.  There are two points that need addressed now to support these changes and provide the best way to prepare our chidren.  Point one: we need to continue to modify education so that children get not only a basic skill set but also some specialized education as they become closer to the working age. 

Second,and maybe most important to us as parents, is that without the traditional office where most of us learned our work ethics and personal responsibility, along with many social skills as we came of age and entered the workforce, these things will need to be taught at a younger age.  Whether it be at home, school, church or organizations, a concentrated effort and / or instruction on integrity, self confidence, social skills, personal responsibility and time managament are needed.  Value based personal awareness curriculum need to be as important as math and writing skills. Even more important is the need to integrate more specialized skill and creative arts into their lives. Otherwise a young adult entering the workforce will not only have a difficult time being able to integrate socially and responsibly from a home office but will not have a skill set that he can market as a contractor.

At Lesson.ly, we believe that unlocking the potential of your employees is a multi-faceted endeavor, but keeping employee connection at the center will help your organization achieve similar results to those above. For the onboarding and training facets of your strategy, consider implementing some of these tactics to turn from cold, stale, corporate blah, to white-hot, self-propelling relationships between your team members.

The #1 Rule of Leadership - "It's not about you" | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Perform a search of “leadership” on Google and you will find dozens of listed leadership “rules” and “qualities” (most of which are very accurate).

donhornsby's curator insight, August 27, 5:25 PM

(From the article) The most effective leaders follow Leadership Rule #1, and return to it during those leadership challenges that require the very best of their leadership abilities. They understand that you cannot change expectations, alter perceptions, and motivate others unless you maintain the ability to influence them in a positive manner. When followers sense that your leadership decisions are made with other priorities, they will not trust you. Without trust, you will lose the ability maintain the positive influence necessary to motivate and inspire others, and you will have limited the value of your leadership investment.

 

Whether you are a brand new leader, or someone with years of experience, the next time you find yourself faced with a leadership decision, pause and remind yourself of this:

 

“It’s not about you.”

3 Rules of Engagement for Making You and Your Organization Stronger

3 Rules of Engagement for Making You and Your Organization Stronger | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A house is only as strong as its foundation. A solid foundation gives the house a firm base allowing for less structural issues over time. This is also true for an organization. A strong foundation allows the organization to maintain an un-fractured workplace where individuals, who make up this foundation, reduce cracks in communication, relationships, and help keep the focus on the goals of the organization. An un-fractured workplace impacts employee engagement, corporate culture, and even the bottom line. The challenge most organizations face when building their behavioral organizational foundation is creating an intentional plan for how to strengthen the human supports of their structure. Rules of engagement can add that extra support, like rebar added to concrete when creating the base of a house

Instead, current and new conditions are both brought forward and the positive effect more often then not can be exponential.
