How to Become a C.E.O.? The Quickest Path Is a Winding One

How to Become a C.E.O.? The Quickest Path Is a Winding One | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
New evidence shows that a mix of skills, especially technology skills, counts more than simply long experience in one specialty.
donhornsby's insight:
In other words, the path to the executive suite may be long and winding, and include stops in many different types of specialties. But the key to navigating it is being able to learn from others all along the way.

5 Habits Of Great Leaders

5 Habits Of Great Leaders | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

The habits of the best leaders are well documented. They’re self-aware. They admit mistakes. They take care of, recognize, and communicate well with their teams.

But what do these inspirational people do on their own time? What goes on behind the scenes that helps them be so effective on a day-to-day basis?

 

"I’ve definitely noticed some things that great leaders tend to do," says Danielle Harlan, founder and CEO of The Center for Advancing Leadership and Human Potential, an organization that helps individuals and organizations maximize their impact. And the things they do behind the scenes make all the difference when it comes to their professional leadership ability, she says. Here are five such common habits.

donhornsby's insight:
(From the Article): Harlan notes that the most effective leaders she works with have personal interests and commitments outside of work. They know what works for them to recharge their batteries, whether it’s hiking and spending time outdoors or reading a good book—and they take the time to do those things to keep themselves sharp, including getting enough sleep, she says. In addition to exercising to stay in shape, the benefits of which are well known, Novak takes time in the morning to write down three things for which he is grateful. This helps him manage his "mood elevator," he says. Novak says we make our worst decisions when we're angry and resentful, but make our best decisions when we're grateful. When he feels his mood elevator going to the wrong places, he knows it’s time to take better care of himself or address what’s bothering him.

What makes a great leader? Leaders have a purpose, they have a sharp focus, they inspire their teams. They show the way for others to follow. They genuinely push each individual to give his/her best. Great leaders share some common traits. Here's five of them. Well written article

Training vs Learning: What’s the Difference?

Training vs Learning: What’s the Difference? | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Ask yourself this: How often am I actually creating training experiences that are teaching someone to do anything?  

 

What are all of those courses, job aids, and apps training you to do? Follow procedure? Perform your daily tasks? Perhaps we need to start asking better questions. One thing training seems to do a really good job at doing is filling time (and costing money): the time we spend taking it and the time the Learning and Development department spends creating it. What’s the outcome of all this? Well, when you do it right, the outcome is learning…but training and learning are not the same thing.

 

Sure, there are plenty of semantics at play here, but how often do you train someone to actually do something? Before you dive in to those learning objectives, do you consider what you want to actually train the learner to do? How often do we actually have an actionable goal that we want to train someone to do? Training is something you receive as the learner, but learning is what you actually do as the learner. Learning implies “I” am doing something. I am taking part and doing the work. Good training inspires people to learn how to do something, but it does not do the work for them.

 

Ask yourself this: How often am I actually creating training experiences that are teaching someone to do anything?

25 Simple Things to Give Up If You Want to Succeed | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

The best way to invite good new things into your life is to make room for them. Just as you declutter your office and home, from time to time do a check and throw out anything that isn't helping you make your success achievable.

 

Here are some good places to start.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): We all have traits and tendencies we need to give up so we can let something great come in. Everyone is entitled for success; we just have to make room for it. Learn to give up what is keeping you stuck and start moving closer to the things you want out of life.
