It is true that if you don't listen to me, I will not listen to you though I might pretend to be listening because you are my boss.

Leiders die beweging tot stand willen brengen, beginnen met luisteren voordat ze gaan vertellen.

7 Attitudes That Make You More Relationship Centric

7 Attitudes That Make You More Relationship Centric | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it
Relationships are the new currency, especially now with social media giving us another world to mine and harvest great people, in addition to meeting people in person.

 

Being able to fit into and become a part of company culture and the new social media culture, both incredibly ethnically and demographically diverse is so essential today.

 

Fitting in will make you stand out, rather than trying to stand out by not fitting in. We can make a stand with our personal brand by being unique, individual and autonomous and being people centric and friendly is where it starts.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. They must evaluate how their leadership brand is being perceived by others and whether or not it has grown tired and requires a tune-up.

donhornsby's insight:

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. 

 

 

(From the article): As leaders, you must begin to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to see the opportunities previous unseen.   Leadership requires you to have circular vision and when you begin to grow complacent, you only see the obvious details before you – rather than those they lie around, beneath and beyond what you seek.  In fact, your mindset becomes stagnate because you are not stretching your perspectives enough to see more than you want to.

 

When you fall into this trap, it’s time to reshuffle the deck, and map out the internal and external factors that are influencing your thinking. You must begin to identify areas that can be improved –  such as relationships, workshop culture, networking, how you are investing in yourself (or lack thereof), etc.

 

It’s not experience, but rather opportunity that is the true mother of success.   Be more mindful about how you manage opportunity before it begins to manage you.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 10:41 AM

The first lesson is a good place to begin. We become so busy we do not look up and from side-to-side. Leaders need to be present and aware of what is happening and not happening. They need to be aware of who is best served to take the reins in a given situation.

 

In School, leadership and management should be intertwined. Quite often, I found that the latter was used almost exclusively and leadership did not exist.
