Why power corrupts – and how leaders can avoid the dark side | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Those who find themselves veering off course can rediscover their way by returning to their roots.

(From the article): It’s not impossible for leaders who have been pulled to the dark side to return to the light. Just as people change for the worse, we can change for the better – as long as the desire is there.

financial and political power is the best test for anybody, because stronger persons will keep own honesty, while weak persons in moral sense will fail.

Self-awareness is once again key. There are many things to be aware of as a leader, but one's self is the best place to start.

This is one reason why it is important to surround yourself with people who are not afraid to tell you when you are doing something that is not right.

Interesting article: You believe a lot fewer ridiculous things than even the smartest people did just a few hundred years ago, but that doesn't make you smarter than them, just less dumb.

How knowing this could give you an advantage.

This is an interesting article with good examples.

Owning and operating a brain is hard. You are issued one at birth, a model that comes riddled with delusions and biases, prone to logical fallacies, and built to create stories to help explain the difficult and messy business of being a person.

Being Leader-ish: When You’re Not Quite a Leader

Being Leader-ish: When You’re Not Quite a Leader | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

But when is being ish not okay? What about in leadership? Is being leader-ish okay, not okay, or maybe okay-ish?


Via The Learning Factor, David Hain
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Every leader, at one time or another, has probably done something leader-ish. Because leadership is not always easy, and sometimes we instinctively seek convenience.

 

But true character-based leadership emerges through discomfort. Ours, and others. It requires focusing our attention on how we can make others shine. Making mindful judgment calls. Getting things done through others, and winning their hearts and minds in the process. Handling people as unique individuals. Looking beyond our positions to the behaviors and choices that are best for our employees, for the team, for the organization, and its customer.

 

Are you a leader, or leader-ish?
