About leadership
I strongly believe in a new type of management style. Not the control-and-command style, form which Managers are derived, but working together based on trust, empowerment and cooperation. Leaders in stead of Managers. All part of my philosophy call 'Qualtism'.

Three Surprising Leaders Who Demonstrated the Importance of Flexibility | About leadership | Scoop.it

History provides us with many examples of leadership.  Whether you talk about Churchill, Steve Jobs or Abraham Lincoln, one thing they have in common is the ability and wisdom to adapt to the circumstances while still keeping their eye on the goal.   History is also filled with rigid and inflexible types who might not bend, but almost invariably break.  However, history doesn’t always tell the full story.  This article will show three unlikely people who demonstrated the theory of flexibility in leadership.

There are certain things that make sense to us. Other things? Not so much. Some stuff isjust a little awkward, right? Some people’s working styles seem reasonable. Other folks? Not really. Other times maybe it’s apparel decisions. We see those skinny jeans, and wonder silently how they can possibly be comfortable. Or even healthy for a fella. But whatever.

John Michel's curator insight, May 2, 2013 8:30 AM

HR must think differently in an age when business threats emerge from all angles--and often from within. And it isn’t just new approaches to employee relations or other traditional responsibilities that are needed. Today, HR has an integral role to play in everything from branding to risk management to innovation.

Teams, groups, organizations, churches, clubs, families, homeschooling groups, etc, don’t need perfect leaders. They need real, human, vulnerable ones. They need leaders who have faults and talk openly about them. Faults, after all, are part of our inherenthumanness.

If you tell me you don’t have any real faults or flaws I’m telling you that you’re either entirely delusional or extremely dishonest with yourself and/or others. Or both. Aren’t many other options.

Feel the Power and Think Better as a Result

Feel the Power and Think Better as a Result | About leadership | Scoop.it

Successful leaders often seem to have sharper minds than the rest of us—isn't that how they got to the top in the first place? While we often assume that people become powerful because of their superior thinking skills, research shows that the relationship flows in the other direction as well: power changes the way a person thinks, making them better at focusing on relevant information, integrating disparate pieces of knowledge, and identifying hidden patterns than people who are powerless. People who feel powerful also show improved "executive functioning": they are better able to concentrate, plan, inhibit unhelpful impulses and flexibly adapt to change.
