Leadership Means Facing Challenges Head-on

Leadership Means Facing Challenges Head-on | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Many would say if you’re in the leadership business, you’re also in the business of dealing with adversity. Regardless of where you are in your life and your career, I can promise you one thing; you will consistently be faced with challenges and obstacles along the way. In today’s post I will take a brief look at the beliefs that cause some to succeed where others fail.

Roger Francis's insight:

(From the article): Life isn’t easy, it’s not fair, and it’s certain to challenge even the best of leaders. You will face physical, mental, financial, relational, and resource challenges among others. Instead of beating yourself up or giving in, it is critical you develop the ability to learn from setbacks. In a nutshell, dealing with barriers, obstacles, and setbacks requires both attitude and aptitude. So, do you have the skills and perspective to thrive under pressure and to succeed, or will you implode when faced with a challenge?

Just as a diamond cannot be polished without friction, neither can you fully develop your skills without them being tested by adversity. Use obstacles and failures as an opportunity to polish your skills. I think Winston Churchill said it best when he noted, “The pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; the optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”

3 Ways to Prepare for Leading a New Team

3 Ways to Prepare for Leading a New Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Good leaders are constantly striving for excellence. They start with themselves, then raise the bar for their team.  It’s a journey that requires a combination of self awareness and growth.

I had a chance to experience both of these things when I recently accepted a new position with my company.  Eight months ago, I stepped into a new leadership role supporting a team in Asia Pacific.

It required me to up my game in three critical areas—increased transparency, response to feedback, and commitment to growth.

Here’s what I learned.  See if it might help you.

What’s not so easy is being vulnerable enough to listen to the answers to these questions. This is what separates leaders from the rest. A true leader knows that honest answers can motivate staff (and self!) as well as avoid potential pitfalls. The road to success is paved with the information gained from just asking the right questions. And listening. And then implementing.

Is Your Leadership Style Right for the Digital Age? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Advancement in digital technologies has disrupted everything, including leadership styles.

 

Employees want more ownership rather than to follow instruction; customers want to participate in the marketing and development process; and leaders are finding that open and agile organizations are able to maneuver more effectively than organizations where all insight and direction comes from the top. In short, the autocratic Commander, whether brilliant or misguided, just won’t cut it anymore.

The 50 Most Powerful Questions Leaders Can Ask

The 50 Most Powerful Questions Leaders Can Ask | New Leadership | Scoop.it

According to Mike Myatt, "The best leaders don’t engage in monologues; they stimulate conversations. They understand conversations are not competitions to be won, but opportunities to enrich, inspire, challenge, illuminate and learn. So, what makes for great dialogue? Great questions.

 

His belief is that the most powerful question of all is the one that works within the context of the situation at hand. The question must be appropriate to the person(s) being addressed, the timing must be spot-on, but most importantly it must unlock the door to reveal the needed input/feedback/information."

 

In this article he list 50 of the best questions he's come across.

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, June 21, 1:57 AM

The ability to question effectively is often highly underrated but in many ways it is the single most important competency that we possess as leaders, parents and innovators.  The art of asking the right questions at the right time can have a profound effect on people - just ask a good coach or an inventor.

 

Leaders often begin their careers feeling that they need to have all of the answers.  In truth, the sooner they realise that they don't (and shouldn't feel they have to) and instead begin to ask questions and admit they don't know, the more effective they become as people leaders.

 

This article provides a list of useful questions to ask and reading through the list is stimulating - trying to understand why these questions are powerful is particularly interesting.  But most of all leaders need to learn how to ask the right questions so that choosing the right questions is a skill that comes naturally.
