(From the article): Leaders with conviction create an environment of certainty for everyone. When a leader is absolutely convinced that he’s chosen the best course of action, everyone who follows him unconsciously absorbs this belief and the accompanying emotional state. Mirror neurons are responsible for this involuntary response. They mirror the emotional states of other people—especially those we look to for guidance. This ensures that leaders with conviction put us at ease.

Rewards and Recognition Done Right

Rewards and Recognition Done Right | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Rewards and recognition programs can be an important part of your organization’s incentive plan. However, if they are implemented wrong, they can backfire.

Via donhornsby
Roger Francis's insight:
(From the article): Deliberate the delivery
How you deliver rewards and recognition to employees can stick the landing or crash the landing. Don’t kill the intent. You should think through the delivery with attention to detail. For example, sincerity is key; if it comes from the heart it sticks in the mind. Also remember that “Specificity is a must; general praise leads to a general malaise,” and “Timeliness is critical. Drift creates a rift.” Let R&R drift past the time a praise-worthy event occurred and you create a rift between receipt of the recognition and any potential for associated meaning.

Are Our Leaders Losing their Humility?

Are Our Leaders Losing their Humility? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A plea for more humble leaders, secinded here!The word humility is often misunderstood. Dictionaries define it as “a modest opinion of one’s own importance,” “the quality of not thinking you are better than other people,” and “self-restraint from excessive vanity.” It is certainly not false modesty or disavowing one’s accomplishments.

Humility derives from an inner sense of self-worth. Humble leaders are grounded by their beliefs, their values, and the principles by which they lead. Ultimately, they know to lead is to serve their customers, employees, investors, communities, and ultimately, society through their work.

Ultimately, they know to lead is to serve their customers, employees, investors, communities, and ultimately, society through their work.

Humility is an essential quality for authentic leaders. People trust them because they know they are genuine, honest, and sincere. Lacking those qualities, people live in fear and doubt – not exactly the ingredients to bring out the best in people. In difficult times, people rely on humble leaders even more to get them through crises.

7 First Steps to Increase Employee Engagement

7 First Steps to Increase Employee Engagement | New Leadership | Scoop.it
As competition for talent heats up, one of the greatest challenges companies face today revolves around employee engagement. Employees are the core of every business. Even when all the strategic pieces of your business fit together, disgruntled and uninterested employees will lead to deep problems.

These questions that will lead to an understanding of your employee’s mindset:

Are your employees passionate about their jobs?
Do they come to the office happy and eager to work?
If your answer to either of those questions is “No,” or if you are unsure about the answer, you probably have disengaged employees. If you are coming to the sober realization that you do indeed have a disengaged workforce, there are simple steps you can take now to fix the problem.

The Best Leaders Allow Themselves to Be Persuaded

The Best Leaders Allow Themselves to Be Persuaded | New Leadership | Scoop.it
When we think of great leaders, certain characteristics come to mind: They have confidence in their abilities and conviction in their beliefs. They “trust their gut,” “stay the course,” and “prove others wrong.” They aren’t “pushovers,” and they certainly don’t “flip-flop.” But this archetype is terribly outdated. Having spent three years studying many of the world’s most successful leaders for my new book, Persuadable, I’ve learned one surprising thing they have in common: a willingness to be persuaded.
