Leadership - Why Talent Is Overrated - Forbes

Leadership - Why Talent Is Overrated - Forbes | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Here’s the thing – most foundational elements of leadership require no skill or talent whatsoever. Clearly the difference possessed by all great leaders is they continue to refine, develop and build from their foundation – they understand leadership is not a destination; it’s a continuum. The best leaders combine attitude, effort and skill, but of the three, skill is the least important. When in doubt, always choose attitude over aptitude.

Why Emotions Matter In Today's Leadership

donhornsby's curator insight, February 18, 4:50 PM

Our emotions not only influence what our brain focuses on, but it can also completely change how we remember details. This is an important key for all leaders to be mindful in their roles.

 

(From the article): Ultimately, what this comes down to and what the various studies from the neuroscience field help us to better appreciate is that our leadership is not defined by us, but through the memories and experiences of those we lead.

And this brings us back to the fundamental truth of succeeding at leadership today – that it’s not about serving our own wants and needs, but about how we can help those under our care to attain that level of success and fulfillment that fuels their drive to do better and to be better going forward.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, February 19, 12:28 AM

From the article:

These findings also cement the truth of why the command-and-control style of leadership is no longer effective given how we can’t lean on our positional authority to assume our perspective and memories are correct [Share on Twitter].
