Sandeep Gautam's insight:

Liked the second part about recognizing and rewarding people-focused leaders as much , or more, than task-obsessed managers.

Think about your role as a librarian and aim to develop these habits.  It will keep us on the cutting edge of transformation.

ASPEL Editor's curator insight, January 14, 2:01 AM

Often times we are faced with the temptation to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. However, a good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. If your leader lacks some level of peripheral vision, it can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. We need strategic leaders who will foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. Find out how to become the strategic leader your company needs!

Leadership Skills: Trusting Just Right Leads to Power

Leadership Skills: Trusting Just Right Leads to Power | positive psychology | Scoop.it
To learn how to trust just right, we have to recognize what leads us to trusting too much and too little and correct that.

Sandeep Gautam's insight:

From the artcile on trusting too much:


I’ll never do that again’ is an autopilot rule that is dangerous. When you’ve trusted and gotten burned and you say I’ll never trust an engineer again, I’ll never trust a brunette again, or something similar, that is one of those autopilot rules that ought to be examined a bit deeper. Is this a contextual one-time thing worth learning from, or is it really worth putting an autopilot rule in place?


donhornsby's curator insight, May 27, 5:28 AM

(From the article): If you want to learn to trust just right, err on the side of trusting too much.


The next time you have the opportunity, try trusting just a little more than you feel comfortable and watch the results unfold. The worst thing that can happen is that you are left with a feeling of having invested too much, but you might just get rewarded for your trust.

Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, And The Power Of Humility In Leadership | positive psychology | Scoop.it

Humility is often associated with weakness - not with strong leaders. In his new book David J. Bobb explains why that's a mistake.

Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Sandeep Gautam's insight:

It takes great strength to display humility:-)

Ken Donaldson's curator insight, September 30, 2013 7:40 AM

"Humility asks us to acknowledge our imperfections. It requires that we admit when we are wrong and then change course."

Eliane Fierro's curator insight, October 3, 2013 1:15 PM

¿Qué te detiene a para mostrar tu vulnerabilidad? La humildad es una fuente de fuerza profunda que genera liderazgo!

Graeme Reid's curator insight, December 8, 2013 3:05 PM

It is very rare to meet a leader with real humility.  It is often seen as a weakness rather than a strength.
