3 Things Great Leaders Do With Their Anger

3 Things Great Leaders Do With Their Anger | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
Why great leaders don't blame people, circumstances, or conditions for their anger.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge, Kevin Watson
donhornsby's insight:

Learn from those times when you are angry. Great point from this article:

 

(From the article): Average leaders waste their anger by getting embroiled in drama-based debates fueled by blame. They get stuck wanting to prove they're right. Great leaders know this is a massive waste of time and energy. Though it might be fun for the ego to parade around its smarts, nothing of value is accomplished.


Instead of blaming others, great leaders learn from anger and become even better leaders.

 

Once leaders have felt, expressed and owned their anger, they then ask the question, "What is this anger here to teach me and us?" Anger is usually an invitation to set a boundary, stop doing something that is no longer of service, change direction, face what is not being faced or to say no.

 

Yes, it takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. What worthy skill isn't? The good news is, when you start shifting your relationship with anger, you'll see the results immediately.

Why Change Is So Hard And How To Lead And Be the Change In 5 Simple Steps | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

If “CHANGE” is the only constant in life, shouldn't we are getting used to it? Why is change often so scary? Why do we and the people around us don´t see the opportunities, but only the risks involved in change ?


Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): We’re in a world full of opportunities. Some of them look scary, but they are definitely out there to make our world a better place. Every stage of the emotional roller coaster is normal and to be expected. When you are mindful and manage the emotions consciously, you can become the change you want to see in the world.

How Transformational Leaders Use Self-deprecating Humour | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
While a sense of humour can be an effective leadership tool, it depends on how that humour is used. Humour that targets or belittles followers undermines the leader’s influence. On other hand, humour that is self-deprecating can increase the connection between a leader and his or her followers.
Self-deprecating humour is especially potent for transformational leaders, defined as leaders who are focused on the advancement and success of their people. Transformational leadership consists of these four components:

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): In sharp contrast to aggressive humour that can destroy a leader’s credibility and effectiveness, humour that is self-deprecating without being defeatist is an extraordinary tool for communicating and reinforcing a culture based on these egalitarian relationships. There is a fine line, however, between self-deprecating and self-disparaging, and leaders must walk it carefully.

Don't be put off by the goofball in the Shriner hat. This photo represents what kind of humor transformational leaders DON"T use.

Being a transformational leader is a journey of deep reflection, acceptance, humility and lightness of spirit. This article gives good insight into the inner landscape of those who use humor as a tool for helping others expand and grow into their best selves.
