Leadership Pride – Where Is It Placed?

Leadership Pride – Where Is It Placed? | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

Pride is a funny thing. We want pride to be evident in what we do. We want our pride to show in where we work and gather as a community. We want to be proud of the places we engage and participate in. Pride is a good thing.

In leadership, it gets trickier.
Via ThinDifference
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Although confidence is required in leadership, being overly proud of our abilities leads to downfalls and pitfalls. It is a misplaced pride that gets leaders off track.

ThinDifference's curator insight, January 10, 2013 9:13 AM

Pride can be powerful... for the good or bad. Getting it right is an important practice leaders need to embrace, gaining trust and productivity.

What to Do When Anger Takes Hold

What to Do When Anger Takes Hold | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it
Managing strong emotions is a necessary skill.
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): When we repress our fear or frustration or longing, the feelings get stuck somewhere in our bodies. Then, at some unexpected time with some unsuspecting person, they come out messy and misdirected. We’re left not knowing why we’re so angry, while the other person is left feeling alienated and untrusting. And that’s the best case scenario. The worst case is that the feeling never leaves us and wreaks havoc; we get either physically ill or mentally burned out.

7 Important Life Lessons Everyone Learns the Hard Way

7 Important Life Lessons Everyone Learns the Hard Way | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it
Practical Tips for Productive Living

Via John Michel, Amy Melendez
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Nobody in this world is going to blindside you and hit you as hard as life will.  Sometimes life will beat you to the ground and try to keep you there if you let it.  But it’s not about how hard life can hit you, it’s about how hard you can be hit while continuing to move forward.  That’s what true strength is, and that’s what winning the game of life is all about.

 

When you have a lot to cry and complain about, but you prefer to smile and take a step forward instead, you are growing stronger.  Work through your struggles and hardships.  Even when it feels like things are falling apart, they’re not.  Take control of your emotions before they take control of you.  Everything will fall into place eventually.  Until then, learn what you can, laugh often, live for the moments, and know that it’s all worthwhile in the end.

more...
John Michel's curator insight, October 2, 7:50 AM

Be a student of life.  Indulge in it and absorb all the knowledge you can, while you can.  You may have to loose some things to gain some things, and you may have to learn some things the hard way.  That’s OK.  All experiences are necessary.  The purpose of your life is to live it in full, to partake in it to the utmost, to reach out with an open mind and an honest heart for the newest and richest experience being offered.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, October 2, 5:15 PM

"3. Seeking validation from others invalidates YOU.

Has the fear of rejection held you back?  Have you ever been so fearful of what others might think or say about you that it kept you from taking positive action?  I bet you’re shaking your head, “yes.”

It’s time to change your mindset…

Today, the only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.  Prove yourself to yourself, not others.  You are GOOD enough, SMART enough, FINE enough, and STRONG enough.  You don’t need other people to validate you; you are already valuable.

If someone says “no” to you, or if someone says something negative about you, that doesn’t change anything about YOU.  The words and opinions of others have no real bearing on your worth.  Certainly it can be helpful and desirable to make a good impression in certain situations, yet it’s not the end of the world when you are faced with rejection.

It’s great to receive positive feedback, but it simply doesn’t always happen.  That’s OK though, because you know where you’re headed and you know your true worth does not depend on the judgment of others.  When you set out to make a true difference in life, there will be those who disagree with you, those who ignore you, and those who flat out reject your ideas and efforts.  Look beyond them, step confidently forward, do what must be done, and let them think what they will."

Five Questions I Wish I'd Asked Before Quitting My Job for a Startup

Five Questions I Wish I'd Asked Before Quitting My Job for a Startup | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it
My steady corporate job was great on paper--it paid well and let me travel the world, but it was also incredibly taxing and limiting. I didn't want to be a cog in that system. I wanted to run my own business, but I never anticipated the challenges that came with it.
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Successful entrepreneurs are not necessarily those who raise millions of investment rounds. Don't forget, they are one in a million.

 

There are, however, thousands of dreamers out there who manage to bootstrap their startups or live so well off on their own, but even they do not make it to the top of tech news.

No matter how much your journey fucks up your life or how difficult it will be, enjoy the ride and keep following your passion.

Why The Best Leaders View Vulnerability as a Strength

Why The Best Leaders View Vulnerability as a Strength | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

Almost everyone seems to think that being vulnerable is a bad thing – it implies that you’re weak or defenseless. In fact, when someone is willing to admit they’re vulnerable, it demonstrates a level of trust and respect with the person or people they’re opening up to. Great leaders recognize the importance of bringing vulnerability to work because it is the foundation for open and nonjudgmental communications. The boldest act of a leader is to be publicly vulnerable.


Via Roger Francis
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): A leader who shows vulnerability is someone who stops feeling compelled to be the first one with an idea or the first one to answer a question. Becoming vulnerable requires a mindset shift where you start to see the aspirations of the business through the eyes of the people you lead. This invites them to become more involved in – and in fact to become the drivers of – the conversation. When you are vulnerable, your employees feel more connected, invested, respected, and vital to the organization. Everyone benefits.

more...
Don Cloud's curator insight, September 30, 2:47 PM

Our humanity is the source of our strength.  Just as fear does not define weakness, but rather it is courage in the face of fear that defines true strength.  Similarly, being vulnerable does not define weakness, but rather embracing one's vulnerability defines the strength of a leader.

Don't Be a "Water Bucket" Leader

Don't Be a "Water Bucket" Leader | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

A “water bucket” leader is someone whose leadership approach can be likened to sticking a hand into a bucket of water and creating a stir by splashing it around. Eventually, the leader pulls their hand out, and when they do, the water quickly returns to it’s original state. It’s as if they never existed. Even though there was a lot of activity, in the end, the bucket of water looks no different than it did before. 



Via george_reed, Ivon Prefontaine, Dean J. Fusto, John Michel, Kenneth Mikkelsen
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): I like these factors because they emphasize behaviors, not traits. We can all incorporate idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, and individualized consideration into our commands if we take deliberate steps to do so.  We can all be like my former Sergeant Major or my first Commander if we ask ourselves the following:


What can I do to provide a vision, a sense of mission, and instill pride in my organization?


What can I do to inspire and motivate my organization?


What can I do to foster a command climate that stimulates intellectual growth in my organization?


What can I do to help my subordinates develop to their full potential?


We do not have to walk away from our commands feeling like we just pulled our hands out of a bucket of water. We can make a difference and leave a legacy that will endure long after we are removed from the equation.  Approaching leadership with the goal of being transformational, not only makes the experience more rewarding, it also ensures that the woodpile is a little bit higher on the back end.

more...
Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 27, 4:40 PM

In this blog post Joe Byerly refers to four factors that characterize transformational leadership:


  1. Idealized Influence- Is the emotional component of leadership. Idealized influence describes leaders who act as strong role models for followers; followers identify with these leaders and want to emulate them. These leaders usually have very high standards of moral and ethical conduct and can be counted on to do the right thing. They provide vision, a sense of mission, and instill pride in the organization and the individual.
  2. Inspirational motivation- This factor is descriptive of leaders who communicate high expectations to followers, inspiring them through motivation to become committed to and a part of the shared vision of the organization.
  3. Intellectual stimulation- It includes leadership that stimulates followers to be creative and innovative, challenging their own beliefs and values as well as those of the leader and the organization.
  4. Individualized consideration- This factor is representative of leaders who provide a supportive climate in which they listen carefully to the individual needs of their followers and assists them in developing their own potential. These are leaders who sit down and take the time to develop their subordinates through counseling and coaching.


Anne-Laure Delpech's curator insight, September 28, 3:12 AM

L'image du leader "seau d'eau" est vraiment excellente : il s'agit d'une personne dont l'approche du leadership ressemble à mettre la main dans un seau d'eau et créer des vagues en agitant la main. L'eau revient rapidement à son état original dès que le leader retire sa main ! 

L'auteur nous invite à nous poser 4 questions pour ne pas être un leader "seau d'eau" : 

- Que puis-je faire pour que chacun dans mon organisation  voit vers où on va, ait le sentiment d'avoir une mission et ressente de la fierté ? - Que puis je faire pour inspirer et motiver ?

- Que puis-je faire pour créer une ambiance qui stimule la croissance intellectuelle dans mon équipe ?

- Comment puis-je aider mes subordonnés à développer leur plein potentiel ?

Prevent Conflicting Messages from Confusing Your Team | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it
Don’t pretend they make sense.
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): The remedy is simple. Discuss the undiscussable. Bring it right out into the open without any expectation that the original mixed message will change, because it probably won’t, at least in the near future. The good news is that it doesn’t have to. If people talk and laugh about it, even if only with friendly colleagues and especially their boss, it will go far in creating psychological freedom. Even if your subordinates and entrepreneurs inside don’t talk about it a lot, just the awareness of these mental structures will leave people less frustrated.

12 Promises You Should Make to Yourself and Keep Forever

12 Promises You Should Make to Yourself and Keep Forever | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

Practical Tips for Productive Living - Make these promises to yourself, and keep them forever.

donhornsby's insight:

“I will dedicate myself to personal excellence.” – Anything worth doing, is worth doing right.  And excellence is never an accident.  It’s the result of high intention, focused effort, intelligent direction, skillful execution, and the vision to see obstacles as opportunities.  It’s also important to note that excellence cannot be judged by looking at where you are at any given point in time, but by measuring the distance you have traveled from the point where you started.  It’s about being diligent and making progress – either a step forward or a lesson learned – day in and day out. 

more...
Amy Melendez's curator insight, September 24, 10:31 AM

From the article:

 

In a world where vows are often left unfulfilled – where making a pledge means less than it used to – where promises seem like they’re made to be broken – it would be nice to see words come back into power, wouldn’t it?  Yet, words can be twisted into any shape, so you must be careful not to be careless.  Remember this when you make promises to yourself.  Your promises must be backed by devoted action.

The image you have of yourself in the future depends on the actions you watch yourself take today.

Promise yourself and then prove it!

16 of the Best Ways to Work Smarter, Not Harder

16 of the Best Ways to Work Smarter, Not Harder | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

I've collected 16 of the best ways I've found to start working smarter, based on my own experience and research.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): We tend to ignore our energy levels when planning our work, but it's an important aspect of how productive we can be. When we have energy isn't the same for everyone either—we each have our own built-in body clock called a circadian rhythm.

 

"The circadian rhythm dips and rises at different times of the day," reports the National Sleep Foundation. "Adults' strongest sleep drive generally occurs between 2:00-4:00 a.m. and in the afternoon between 1:00-3:00 p.m., although there is some variation depending on whether you are a 'morning person' or 'evening person'."

 

If you know you're most productive right before lunch, for instance, don't plan meetings or email catch-up time then. Instead, put your hardest work in the time periods when you've got the most energy, and save easy tasks for when you're dragging.

How Successful People Stay Calm

How Successful People Stay Calm | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. 

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Stress and worry are fueled by our own skewed perception of events. It’s easy to think that unrealistic deadlines, unforgiving bosses, and out-of-control traffic are the reasons we’re so stressed all the time. You can’t control your circumstances, but you can control how you respond to them. So before you spend too much time dwelling on something, take a minute to put the situation in perspective. If you aren’t sure when you need to do this, try looking for clues that your anxiety may not be proportional to the stressor. If you’re thinking in broad, sweeping statements such as “Everything is going wrong” or “Nothing will work out,” then you need to reframe the situation. A great way to correct this unproductive thought pattern is to list the specific things that actually are going wrong or not working out. Most likely you will come up with just some things—not everything—and the scope of these stressors will look much more limited than it initially appeared.

(From the article): Leaders can beneficially exploit this phenomenon to build trust by being out in front of the organization’s decisions, says Kramer, so that when good things happen, people recognize that the leader was in charge of the process, even though he or she might share the credit. "And there’s a little bit of evidence that suggests that when leaders are generous at sharing credit, they actually are more trusted," he says. "It shows that they are fully confident." Likewise, demonstrating confidence by admitting full responsibility when something goes wrong--even if the leader wasn’t fully responsible--can in some cases enhance a leader’s reputation.

Not all of us are born decisive just like not all of us are born gym fanatics. I should know, I’m neither.

In the same way, you need to figure out what life you want for yourself. You need to sit down with a pen and paper and write and write and write until the answer starts becoming clearer. That’s the way I do it. At first, its really vague statements that come out (e.g. I want to draw but then keep digging, draw what? Write what, for whom). Set aside a time everyday for 3 days. If it’s still not clear, give yourself a break and spend another 3 days the following week at it.

Learn why compassion is critical in today's leadership and what 3 measures you can employ to demonstrate compassion in your leadership.
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): This is why compassion is vital in today’s leadership because it’s the key to the internal driving force found within each us to understand what motivates our employees, what matters to them, and how we can connect the work they do to the shared purpose that defines why we do what we do. No doubt this is why studies have shown that compassion in the workplace leads to not only higher levels of employee engagement and job satisfaction, but lower levels of employee absenteeism and burnout.

 

So if compassion is a cornerstone to effective leadership in today’s faster-paced, 24/7 global environment, how can we go about building and strengthening our innate ability to not only empathize, but to be curious about those we lead, and what motivates them to bring their best selves to work?
