donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 10:04 AM

(From the article): Above all else, you must be genuinely you. Don’t be a mini-someone else. You have to operate knowing that you have everything you need to be a leader. Can you polish a few things? Sure. Will you learn ways to become more effective? Absolutely, but the canvas that you work from is you. I rarely meet a leader who is 180 degrees off the mark in being a leader that others want to follow.

 

Here are three things to increase the level of genuine you’re bringing to the office:

 

Be vulnerable; if you don’t know, admit it.Admit your mistakes and then make it right.Act with integrity. Integrity means to do the right thing even when no one is watching.

 

If you focus your leadership on being present, clear, and genuine, your leadership confidence, focus, and results will grow. As you grow, so will your team. Everyone wins!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 10:34 AM

There is a quality of mindfulness in the article i.e. being present. This is positive and can be built on to create organizations which are fluid and flexible.

 

In School, we still adhere to the hero leader i.e. principals who can change thing and silver bullet solutions i.e. the fad du jour. The result is we deform rather than transform School.

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, May 22, 1:12 PM

This is an excellent point.  The model today requires significantly different approaches to communications and connection.  The focus cannot be on only one person.

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Leadership | Scoop.it

Teachers who work silently, don’t tweet, blog and discuss ideas with people around the world are obsolete. Teachers are no longer working locally but globally and it’s our job to share what we do and see what others are doing. If a teacher is no longer learning then he shouldn’t be teaching other people.

We should all be tweeting, blogging and sharing what works and doesn’t work, get and give advice to and from co-workers around the world. We should constantly be improving our craft because professional development isn’t a 3 hour workshop once a month but a lifelong process.

We do not learn from experience…we learn from reflecting on experience.” -John Dewey

I would like to offer one key philosophy that we at our company have been offering to our leaders.....Learning is not enough, we as leaders need to be constantly learning, unlearning, and re-learning.  The game has changed and the rules are evolving by the minute. 

 

Keep your running shoes on, the ride is exciting as long as you remain open, flexible, and adaptable to change.  Remember, if it is difficult...you are about to grow and learn something new.

Christopher Janney's curator insight, May 28, 8:23 AM

The way we understand leadership today needs to evolve. Understanding that what you once knew that got you where you are is not enough to keep going is important. Understanding the new responsibilities and expectations of leaders is important. For instance, being a good leader sometimes means being a good follower. And as this article points out, a good leader is a consummate learner. Without that, the things you are leading people to have already passed and others are already on to the next thing.

Three Quick Ways to Improve Your Strategy-Making

Three Quick Ways to Improve Your Strategy-Making | Leadership | Scoop.it

The standard strategy processes at most companies share three common characteristics:


1) you wait until the annual strategy review to revisit your strategy

2) you put together a SWOT analysis as input to the start of the strategy process

3) you start the strategy process with a long and arduous exercise to wordsmith a mission/vision statement or organizational aspiration.


These activities are, no doubt, reassuring and familiar. They are also almost completely useless.

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction | Leadership | Scoop.it
In a workplace infused with top down, hierarchical, departmental silos, change management is the new requirement for leadership success. With a market comprised of fickle consumers and workplaces brimming with employee identity crises, leadership success requires more patience, poise, and time-to-think – and the ability to seamlessly connect the dots of opportunity. The marketplace requirements to compete are evolving so quickly that leadership is struggling to stay ahead of the course; unsuccessful efforts to be proactive and sustain organizational readiness will come at an extremely high cost. As such, the demand for leadership that is willing and capable of tackling change management head-on – already in short supply – is at a premium. Leadership in the 21st century not only requires the ability to continuously manage crisis and change – but also the circular vision to see around, beneath and beyond the obvious in order to anticipate the unexpected before circumstances force your hand. As you embark upon your change management journey, here are ten things that will challenge your capabilities as a change agent and potentially become defining moments along your leadership success path.

Great article!

 

As Darwin said, “It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.”

 

Instead of asking questions like why are they doing this to me or who decided this change....better questions are:

 

"What can I do to proactively respond to the change, How can I understand what the company hopes to achieve as a result of this change, and What can I do to help my team adapt to these changes."

 

Hope you enjoyed this article.  Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

The Most Undervalued Leadership Traits Of Women

The Most Undervalued Leadership Traits Of Women | Leadership | Scoop.it
It’s impossible to respect, value and admire great leadership if you can’t identify what makes a leader great. Because of this, the identity crisis I have written about that exists in today’s workplace is something that women leaders in particular have been facing for much too long. While the tide is changing and more women are being elevated into leadership roles, there is still much work to do. As of July 2013, there were only 19 female elected presidents and prime ministers in power around the globe. In the business world, women currently hold only 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEO positions and the same percentage of Fortune 1000 CEO positions. As women continue their upward trajectory in the business world, they have yet to be fully appreciated for the unique qualities and abilities they bring to the workplace.

Interesting study and applies to everyone not just women. As a former women basketball coach I'm a huge advocate of women in leadership now ... here's a quote form the story "During decades of leadership coaching, we have consistently heard women say that they feel less effective in meetings than they do in other business situations. Some say that their voices are ignored or drowned out. Others tell us that they can’t find a way into the conversation. Their male colleagues and managers have witnessed the phenomenon. In fact, several men reported seeing a female colleague get rattled or remain silent even when she was the expert at the table." Good person to follow .

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes | Leadership | Scoop.it

The 21st century has brought much in the way of turmoil and change to the world of business. As a consequence, ways of doing business that were once universally accepted now seem outdated and inflexible in an age where knowledge drives economies and socially responsible corporate attitudes influence stakeholders and shareholders alike.


With such changes have come new priorities and responsibilities and it is in this environment that the theory of servant leadership has flourished as a management style for the redefined business world of today, one that can serve as a cornerstone for organisations wishing to build corporate structures based on stewardship, empowerment and trust.

(From the article) Servant leadership will benefit organisations dependent on knowledge workers and in environments where high levels of creativity and innovation are the norm. Knowledge workers in particular require a sense of autonomy in order to function at their best and it is the responsibility of the servant leader to create this workplace freedom for them.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 19, 9:48 AM

(From the article): If speaking with conviction gets people’s attention and earns their confidence, Listening with intention will help us to keep it. This is the kind of listening that demands our total presence. Our intention must be to suspend judgment; to resist the temptation to interrupt; to fight our tendency to build arguments in our heads while someone is talking. It requires us to explore; to question and to rephrase. This kind of listening comes from a conscious decision to truly understand what is being said. It does not require us to agree but it provides the opportunity for meaningful discussion that can lead to breakthrough thinking and effective collaboration.
