What Performance Language Do You Speak?

What Performance Language Do You Speak? | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
We need to talk in terms of key performance indicators not completion rates.
donhornsby's insight:
Learning deliverables need to focus on that. We need to talk in terms of key performance indicators not training outcomes, certifications or completion rates. We need to retool ourselves as performance consultants not instructional designers. Finally, we need to design performance-based support and learning solutions ahead of training deliverables.

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Teddy Roosevelt did it. Harry Truman did it. Want to be an outstanding leader? Keep a leadership journal. As part of my executive coaching work, one of the most effective tools I recommend that powers up the coaching process is a leadership journal.  The exercise of leadership is not unlike a sport you play. When you review your actions in the field you learn what worked, what didn’t, and adjust along the way. Leadership guru Peter Drucker said: “ Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. ”

I think this is an underused tool in many professions. Moreover, we do not journal about what we experience and how we feel about those experiences. We want to shape the world without reshaping ourselves.

Organizations Can’t Change If Leaders Can’t Change with Them

Organizations Can’t Change If Leaders Can’t Change with Them | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
They should start by understanding their own behavior.
donhornsby's insight:
(From the article): Leaders should start a transformational journey accepting that the organization will have to transform them as much as they will have to transform it. The more a leader knows how they will react during change, the better equipped they’ll be to foster real change in themselves, others, and the organization.

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.


Via The Learning Factor, Kevin Watson
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.

What Top Leaders And Academics Are Thinking About Leadership In 2017

What Top Leaders And Academics Are Thinking About Leadership In 2017 | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
As leaders and their organizations face ongoing changes, they will need to continue to update how they think about leadership and how they manage their energy to be able to navigate the challenges with sufficient clarity and energy.
donhornsby's insight:
Today’s leaders also need to continue to stay abreast of the latest trends. They need to bring their full energy to update their organization. In doing so, they should leverage the latest trends to meet their mission and delight a broad range of stakeholders — from clients and employees, to financiers and the communities in which they operate.

Developing Resilience: Overcoming and Growing from Setbacks

Developing Resilience: Overcoming and Growing from Setbacks | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

According to legend, Thomas Edison made thousands of prototypes of the incandescent light bulb before he finally got it right. And, since the prolific inventor was awarded more than 1,000 patents, it's easy to imagine him failing on a daily basis in his lab at Menlo Park.

In spite of struggling with "failure" throughout his entire working life, Edison never let it get the best of him. All of these "failures," which are reported to be in the tens of thousands, simply showed him how not to invent something. His resilience gave the world some of the most amazing inventions of the early 20th century, such as the phonograph, the telegraph, and the motion picture.


Via Roger Francis
donhornsby's insight:
Learn from your mistakes and failures. Every mistake has the power to teach you something important; so don't stop searching until you've found the lesson in every situation. Also, make sure that you understand the idea of "post-traumatic growth" – there can be real truth in the saying that "if it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger."

5 Morning Rituals That Will Double Your Energy Levels

5 Morning Rituals That Will Double Your Energy Levels | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Whether you're at the starting line preparing to compete for the gold in the 100 meters or you're trying to be at your most productive state--how you start often predicts the outcome.

If you stumble at the start of the 100 meters--it's nearly impossible to catch up. If you get off to a lethargic start to your day--you're going to be reacting to the day instead of being proactive.

Successful people understand that the day starts as soon as their alarm clock rings.

What is a leader? A learner... | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
The comment that leadership is a journey is far more than a simple cliché; with research revealing that the best leaders see themselves as learners, focusing on five fundamentals in order to deliver continuous and continuing improvement.

Via Roger Francis, Aki Puustinen
donhornsby's insight:
In an article for HBR in 2014 the co-founder of Fast Company, Bill Taylor, commented “It takes a real sense of personal commitment, especially after you’ve arrived at a position of power and responsibility, to push yourself to grow and challenge conventional wisdom.” 

 But ask yourself this: if I don’t open myself up to learning and developing then how can I expect my people and my organisation to grow and develop, to meet the needs of our customers in a changing world?

25 Simple Things to Give Up If You Want to Succeed

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.

(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.
