#Leadership #Liderazgo: Manager’s Mantra: Walk the Talk, Give Credit, Admit When You Don’t Know

#Leadership #Liderazgo: Manager’s Mantra: Walk the Talk, Give Credit, Admit When You Don’t Know | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it

“No one thought it was a great idea, especially my boss. They finally gave in because I pushed so hard. Well you know what? It was the best and most popular part of the show. Everyone raved about it, however, I am sitting here incredulous because on the call my boss took credit for it all. I can’t.”

 

That statement came from a Millennial I know who is beyond disgusted with her job. She loves the company but the manager wants all the credit.

Good read, Gracias Jose Luis!

 

From the post:

 

12. Immediately assume that most of what is going on is wrong…and make people prove the value of their priorities. After all, people like face-time with the boss.

 

13. When things go wrong, make certain to sacrifice to someone. Your bold action to “solve the problem” will be appreciated by your boss.

 

14. Success is clearly an outcome of your deft leadership and super-normal management skills. Don’t be shy about guiding the spotlight to shine on you. Your team will enjoy the glow from their great leader

Leading Through The Power Of Persuasion & Storytelling

Leading Through The Power Of Persuasion & Storytelling | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it
Taking part in the adventure of persuading others, sweeping them up into an idea, an unexpected action or an unproven vision, is a wonderful experience. The ability to create excitement all around you is what leadership is about.

 

Good grief -- I like some of what this article says but there is one glaring error: the confusion between persuasion and influence, particularly for leaders.

 

So what the heck is the difference between the two, why is it important, and what has it got to do with storytelling?

 

Well -- persuasion is getting someone to do something. Parents use persuasion all the time: "Finish your dinner or you won't get dessert." Or "Sit Fido and you'll get a treat!" Bosses use persuasion too: "Finish this report by X date or forget that promotion." We all use persuasion.

 

Influence however, is the power or capacity to cause an effect in indirect or intangible ways. Influence is more often 'showing' what needs to be done which then moves someone to take action -- hopefully in a desireable way.

 

There are many facets to influence including reciprocity, commitment, social proof and others (see Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by R. Cialdini, 2006).

 

Leadership at the highest levels is about influence, not persuasion. Management is about persuasion. Confusing persuasion and influence creates leadership that can feel more like manipulation than willing participation.

 

Storytelling -- IMHO -- lies squarly in the camp of influence. And leaders definitely need to master storytelling as an way to both engage and influence.

 

The list this author has created for leaders to focus on to be persuasive is mostly all about influential qualities to imbue in a leader's storytelling. Except the first one -- threats and consequences. Outlining global consequences if an organization does not change can be part of an influential conversation. Threats, not so much. That's pure persuasion.

 

Go read the rest of the list and let me know what you think!

From the Battlefield to the Boardroom: A Navy SEAL's Guide to Business Leadership Success

From the Battlefield to the Boardroom:  A Navy SEAL's Guide to Business Leadership Success | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it

I spent five years as a Navy SEAL supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom and the war on terror. During “capture or kill” missions in Iraq and clandestine operations in Northern Africa, I gained a unique perspective on teamwork, leadership, and what it takes to succeed in a competitive and challenging environment. What I didn’t realize at the time was that my experiences in combat had given me a highly valuable and applicable set of tools that translated well to entrepreneurship and leadership in business.

How To Develop Your Signature Voice -- For Better Storytelling

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 23, 2013 6:26 PM

Here is a 60 minute podcast that is really great. I like how the speakers speak slowly but not too slow that you are bored. And the presentation isn't too fast that you are scrambling to take notes.


I curated this because all of us need to develop our signature voice. When you are authentically sharing your stories and connecting with your audience, that is what you are doing -- conveying your signature voice. This is distinct to you.


But what I really like about this podcast is that it focuses on your voice and how to develop it. In addition to the presenters defining 'signature voice', they also define executive presence, debunk a few myths about presence and leadership (like one size fits all), and they talk about specific communication strategies to develop your signature voice.


Better yet, the presenters (Amy Jen Su and Muriel Wilkins) give examples. Yahoo!


And what strikes me as I listed to this is that in coaching leaders in storytelling, we cover all that the presenters go over. Which means that every business, in mastering storytelling, is also mastering leadership and executive presence. And this is a good thing!


This podcast and accompanying slides -- even though they never mention storytelling -- is chock full of great info and tips that you will be able to put into practice. You will be a better storyteller and a better leader!

How Google Became Such a Great Place To Work

How Google Became Such a Great Place To Work | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it

Google calls its HR department People Operations, though most people in the firm shorten it to POPS.The group is headed by Laszlo Bock, a trim, soft-spoken 40-year-old who came to Google six years ago.

 

Bock says that when POPS looked into Google’s woman problem, it found it was really a new mother problem: Women who had recently given birth were leaving at twice Google’s average departure rate.

 

At the time, Google offered an industry-standard maternity leave plan. After a woman gave birth, she got 12 weeks of paid time off. For all other new parents in its California offices, but not for its workers outside the state, the company offered seven paid weeks of leave.

(From the article): We live in a time when where more people are staying connected on vacations. People have forgotten how important it is for your mind to rejuvenate. Research shows that naps improve productivity—a growing body of evidence shows that taking regular breaks from mental tasks improves productivity and creativity — and that skipping breaks can lead to stress and exhaustion.

Aizuchi Playbook: Brand Your Business with Story

Aizuchi Playbook: Brand Your Business with Story | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it

Colleague Andrew Nemiccolo has just published his new e-book on business storytelling and I really like it.

I know -- you are thinking, "What?! ANOTHER ebook on business storytelling??" Yep, and it's good. Here's what I like about it:

1. The focus on 'back-channel' communication and listening
2. Tackling being vulnerable and getting comfortable sharing your personal stories
3. Advice to NOT find stories, but find experiences instead
4. Steps for figuring out who your audience is first before you share a story
5. All the great story prompts for figuring out and organizing the experiences you want to share
6. Tips for creating a story bank of your experiences

I am not crazy about the definition of 'story' that Andrew uses -- basically for him, anything is a story. Well, that's not helpful and actually leads to a lot of confusion for people. A Tweet is not a story, but it can be part of a larger business narrative. Knowing the difference will help you better target your storytelling efforts.

The book is primarily focused on marketing and branding. Even so, the information and advice can be use in a whole host of other biz story applications.

Go grab the easy-to-read-and-digest book and get smarter about working with stories in business.

I have no affiliation with Andrew or his company other than a promise to chat over coffee sometime. Enjoy the book!
