What You Want from Your Leader, Mentor, or Coach | New Leadership | Scoop.it

This is what you need from your leader, mentor, and coach. To deserve the gift of their time, of their beliefs, and of their counsel, you have to be open to receive it.

 

If you’ve ever had a great leader, mentor, or coach, you know just how valuable that experience can be in shaping your personal and professional development. Great leaders, mentors, and coaches can make a tremendous difference in your results, and they can make the difference in your life.

Organizations invest billions annually on a success curriculum known as "leadership development," which ends up leaving so much on the table.

John Michel's curator insight, January 22, 2013 8:29 PM

Organizations invest billions annually on a success curriculum known as "leadership development," which ends up leaving so much on the table. Training and development programs almost universally focus factory-like on inputs and outputs — absorb curriculum, check a box; learn a skill, advance a rung; submit to assessment, fix a problem. Likewise, they leave too many people behind with an elite selection process that fast-tracks "hi-pos" and essentially discards the rest. And they leave most people cold with flavor of the month remedies, off sites, immersions, and excursions — which produce little more than a grim legacy of fat binders gathering dust on shelves.

What if, instead of stuffing people with curricula, models, and competencies, we focused on deepening their sense of purpose, expanding their capability to navigate difficulty and complexity, and enriching their emotional resilience? What if, instead of trying to fix people, we assumed that they were already full of potential and created an environment that promoted their long-term well-being? In other words, what if cultivating a successful inner life was front and center on the leadership agenda?

Efficienarta's curator insight, March 6, 12:59 AM

I thought that the points on "deepening their sense of purpose" and "expanding their capability to navigate difficulty" were particularly interesting.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, March 9, 4:23 PM

Leadership development programmes often fall far short of expectations and rarely lead to long term change. Developing people is a process not an event.  Also check out - www.corporatecoachingnetwork.com.au

Why Trying to Manipulate Employee Motivation Always Backfires!

"The research is clear, and has been known in social science circles for decades: Carrot-and-stick thinking is, at its core, a control method--and people always resist being controlled. Even if they don't openly resist, people resent being coerced into certain behaviors.'

 

Nice insight from Ken and Scott Blanchard.

There Is No Magic Pill For Great Leadership

There Is No Magic Pill For Great Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I've been interviewing a number of executives for my new book, The Magnetic Workplace (Nicholas Brealey, 2013) and so far my findings have been rather interesting.

 

There is no magic pill for great leadership. Yet many organizations believe they can solve problems by handing someone a book (even if it's authored by me) or sending them to a one-day management training program at the local Holiday Inn. The results by themselves are usually disappointing.

 

Here's how great leadership is created:...
