5 Traits That Make Truly Authentic (and Enlightened) Leaders

5 Traits That Make Truly Authentic (and Enlightened) Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A leader’s success is largely incumbent on their capacity to influence other people


And 21st century leadership is about creating relationships of integrity, authenticity and trust, as loyalty is now earned through relationships and collaboration, rather than through titular power.


Yet, forging deep, trusting business relationships is often awkward, unchartered territory for leaders. Many are wary of leading with emotion or operating with a genuine openness and honesty, believing that showing vulnerability will lead to dissenting opinions or criticism from colleagues and subordinates.

Leadership as the Search for Greater Coherence

Leadership as the Search for Greater Coherence | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Literature around leadership is not hard to come by, but there are few texts that examine the process of leadership from where it begins – in the leader’s mind. Below, Nathan Harter analyses how great leaders have embraced the often complex multiplicity of their decisions and so brought coherence to their leadership.


Leadership scholars the world over have bent themselves to conducting empirical studies on how leaders lead. They dig through the historical record for examples from the past, such as Nelson Mandela or Steve Jobs, and they analyse famous leaders in the present, in many domains such as politics and business. They also conduct experiments using social scientific methods to find out what actually happens. This descriptive literature on leadership is growing.

Use Your Staff Meeting for Peer-to-Peer Coaching

Use Your Staff Meeting for Peer-to-Peer Coaching | New Leadership | Scoop.it

One of the unintended consequences of the constant right-sizing and flattening of our organizations is that we now live in a world where managers just don’t have time to do all that’s required of them in their daily jobs, let alone find time for coaching their employees.

 

Yet coaching is a critical job for any manager who wants to improve her team’s performance. Research shows that training alone can improve performance by 22%, while training accompanied by coaching (that is, collaborative problem solving, feedback, and evaluation) can improve performance by 88%.


So what are time-constrained leaders to do?

But that time is over and that is why at Challengera, we have embarked on a mission to democratize Change Management. Let us now go through the whys and the hows.

John Norman's curator insight, February 24, 4:36 AM

This provides 7 common sense steps but I would be interested to know how many will actually do step #1 and evaluate their results to date.Remember the old adage : If you cannot measure it then how are you going to manage it. In project management terms you need to set the base line in order to get a realistic view of progress and hence your ROI on your hard earned marketing dollars. Get step 1 right and the rest will be of immense value to your business.

Leadership without emotional energy is useless beyond the academic.  Leadership within the context of emotional energy is priceless and powerful. 

donhornsby's curator insight, February 27, 9:05 AM

(From the article): When it comes to learning true leadership, characteristics like servanthood and followership immediately come to mind.

 

But many other aspects also fall into this category. These are like the ability to:

 

Cultivate wisdomDevelop genuine humilityNurture a heart of gratitudeOr even summon courage when it really counts

And the reason is fairly simple: these are the highly personal aspects of real leadership that only come through a deliberate and life-long commitment to self-discovery.

I’m saying this is one of the worst problems I had to deal with because I didn’t know it was a problem until it was almost too late. Here’s what I did to solve it:

The Power of Making Things Visible

The Power of Making Things Visible | New Leadership | Scoop.it
One of the central tenets of traditional management philosophy is that information should be controlled. Secret formulas and key strategic moves, for example, are obviously not to be shared with competitors. Even internally, to avoid the risk of leaks or misinterpretation, information has been traditionally been doled out only on a “need to know” basis.


Unfortunately, this approach does not work well in today’s fast-paced, innovation-focused environment.
