Leading is all about changing. When it becomes just talking about change, it is management and maintaining the status quo. I sat in on a panel last night about leadership in School. Despite the best efforts, the panel spoke about management not leading.

A huge reason why training leaders and developing them form the ground up is needed. A quote for the article "ore concerning is that nearly 60 percent of those surveyed trust a stranger significantly more than they trust their boss," More important the study goes on "58 percent of managers in the study said they hadn’t received any management training when they began managing others." Its imperative that leaders all receive the core skills needed I'm impact change, engagement and trust that lead to hi performance. Putting people in a jobs before they get core skills training on communication and influence is in my opinion malpractice.

The Values of “Insightfully Aware” Leaders

The ability to identify and communicate values is critical to self-awareness and leadership development.

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, September 22, 2014 5:24 AM

An “insightfully aware” leader has a profound and clear understanding of his or her purpose and the reasons behind it. Self-awareness of values helps leaders to reflect upon their emotions, goals, needs and motives. Individuals who are able to identify and articulate their values will generate meaningful insights about how they see themselves, the circumstances they face, the behaviours they display, and their potential reactions to specific situations. Comprehending their values (personal, work and organisational) enables leaders to know and accomplish what they believe is important.

Here is another article on leadership that will help us chart our future and create it well.


Heaven knows, just looking at the news headlines these days reminds us how critical leadership is. And I'm not just talking at the political level. Nor am I talking about leadership at the big corporate level. I'm talking about leadership at YOUR level -- no matter where you are in your career or professional life. We are all required to be leaders today in some way, shape or form, whether we work alone or with others.


So what skills do we need to cultivate now to be awesome in the next 20? This article covers them.


Out of the 6 discussed, 4 are related to storytelling:

  1. Questions Not Answers. Effective business storytelling is NOT about 'telling'. It's about evoking stories from others and listening. Then sharing a story in return. That's the exact opposite of what is usually taught however. In order to really leverage story as a leader, it's all about mastering the Art Of The Question. Knowing the right kinds of questions to ask when is one of the secrets to the universe. No kidding. You 'gotta master this one.
  2. Employee Pull. Story is a pull technology, not a push technology. Stories pull people into your world. If you are still relating to storytelling as a push technology -- let me tell you a story so I can push my message to you -- cut it out. Pivot and work with stories as a pull technology so you are working with modern 21st Century skills.
  3. Customer Pull. Ditto #2
  4. Purpose. Got a purpose for your company that creates a positive impact on the planet? In order for Purpose to come alive, to capture the hearts/minds of people, story is your #1 vehicle for getting the job done. Get this under your belt today so you are propelled past others who are late to the game.


There are 2 other skills the author talks about in this post. For me they are long on concepts and short on examples or how-to. But they are good signposts to keep on the radar screen and find more articles research on.


OK -- I'm off to client meetings. While I'm gone doing my story thing, read the insights from this article (of which there are many) so you can start preparing today for your leadership of tomorrow.

Is Integrity the Secret to Great Leadership?

Is Integrity the Secret to Great Leadership? | Leadership | Scoop.it

The actions of a business are its value statement. Actions speak volumes about what really matters most – not what should matter, not what we wish mattered, but what really does matter to us. They swamp mission statements, speeches or memos, and they eclipse intentions.


Having the kind of integrity that leaves no room between what we say and what we do is really hard work. It’s much easier to follow the words of JR Ewing of the TV series Dallas, who said: “Once you lose your integrity, everything’s easy. Lots of people have chosen this path. Others find it to be too much work to align their decisions and actions with what they claim as priorities.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 26, 2014 1:13 PM

Integrity is important. It has multiple meanings beginning with honesty and authenticity. It also has to do with being part of the greater whole. Too often, I found School managers were just that managers and operated as observers. It allowed them to hang on to the idea of cause and effect without thinking of the bigger picture as complex with considerable uncertainty.
