I usually write about the challenges of professional and executive speaking, but there’s one speaking gig that presents difficulties even most pros don’t have to face: preaching. Preachers face the same audience (mostly) week after week, year after year, and have to somehow persuade them to listen afresh every Sunday. Even [...]

Being accepted as a leader, especially if you are new to a leadership role or have been asked to lead a new group of people who do not know of you or your success in previous leadership roles, can be  difficult if you make some very common mistakes in how you approach the leadership role.


The real measure of success in any leadership role, is to have those you lead follow your direction without hesitation, and be willing to go that extra mile when you ask it of them.


This excellent article, suggests that the common mistakes made by leaders that lead to them not being accepted by team members can be avoided, and it outlines five of the most common mistakes and then advises how to avoid them.

Many of us have become leaders in our worlds.  Even if only to our clients.  We reallly have no choice as it comes with the work we do.  Yet, some people never do get comfortable simply because they do not know what to do.

Developing Charisma - Increasing Your Influence in the Workplace

Developing Charisma - Increasing Your Influence in the Workplace | SM | Scoop.it

Have you ever worked with a very charismatic leader?


If so, then it's likely that almost everyone in the organization liked, trusted, and admired this person.
People listened when she talked, colleagues supported her ideas, and talented people wanted to join her team. In short, everyone wanted to be around this person!

 

Charisma is something that many people believe you're born with. However, this isn't the case – you can become more charismatic, and we'll explore how you can develop charisma in this article

 

Defining Charisma

 

Charisma is a collection of traits and behaviors that make you appeal to other people. The word comes from the Greek word "charis," which means "grace" or "gift."

Michel CEZON's curator insight, March 2, 2014 12:28 PM

Charisma is a collection of traits and behaviors that help you appeal to other people. Charismatic people are often successful, and people are naturally drawn to them. They retain the best talent in their teams, and people listen to their ideas.

Because charisma is a collection of behaviors, you can learn it. Work on developing empathy, self-confidence, and assertiveness. Be aware of what your body language is saying, and do your best to give people a genuine smile when you're around them.

Also, make sure that you use your charisma the right way: don't use it to influence someone to do something that is against his or her own best interests.

"Recently, I dropped in on an innovative workspace for one of my software technology clients– it's a very cool office space. An open-plan, communal space with worktables in rows, very low partitions between areas, and no private offices."

 

....

 

"Here are my top 5 questions which help construct the WHYS of employee engagement for leaders.

 

1) Why am I here?

2) Why should I trust you leadership?

3) Why should I be loyal to your company?

4) Why don’t you communicate your company values?

5) Why aren’t you clear about the rewards of working in this company?"

Is Your Content Worthy of a Like, Share, Pin, Retweet, Google +1? | Social Media Today | SM | Scoop.it

This is a question that each person active on social media should ask himself a day or another. Have you ever thought? [note mg]

 

How many hours have you spent adding buttons, gadgets and widgets to your new blog or website? You research the right tools, share buttons, share bars, analytic tracking tools and more. You install them with a hope and a prayer that someone somewhere is going to use them.

 

However, unfortunately many business leaders find they don’t get used. The share buttons sit on their site with the lonely zero or default +1. Chances are your pocket book or wallet might be feeling a little lonely too.

 

What if you took the same time you spend on the share bars, share buttons and tools and instead first focus on something worthy of a share? I know it sounds like a crazy concept because after all it’s far easier to focus on the bright shiny objects, geeky tools and data analytics.

 

Trust me, I am a data junkie and could literally spend all day helping my clients dig into the heads of their target audiences with a goal of embedding their brand in their brains!

 

Is your content worthy of a share?
