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.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, December 5, 2012 6:19 AM


Business owners often struggle when it comes to delivering critical feedback to an employee, especially when aspects of the employees performance, leave much to be desired.


Unfortunately, if a business owner or manager wants their critical feedback to be accepted by the employee, the feedback must be direct and not be delivered as hints or polite requests for certain changes to take place.


This good article, suggests employees need to be told upfront what exactly the relevant issue is, and it then suggests three steps to take to ensure that the critical feedback is received appropriately and the message sinks in in a way that will result in the requested outcomes.


Bond Beebe Accountants & Advisors's curator insight, December 18, 2012 8:29 AM

Providing effective feedback is an essential skill for managers at every level.  As this piece suggests, offering concrete, detailed direction is key to employee success.

 

ThinDifference's curator insight, March 10, 2013 9:47 AM

Great three step way to deliver feedback. We need to me more intentional in our feedback so all involved get better in what we do.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 28, 2012 6:00 PM

I love this piece! Thank you fellow curator Jeff Domansky @PR Coach for finding and sharing this. 


Why do I like it so much? Because even with biz stories we often get too wordy, complicated, and detailed.


So this article is a reminder to Keep It Simple Sweetie (KISS). Here's what the author, Jim Hoffman says at the end of the article: "There is an elegance in simplicity.  Simplicity does not mean removing features, benefits, or services from your product.  It means distilling what's most important about those features, and explaining them in the fewest words possible.  Go ahead, write yours down, and get busy crossing things out." 


That's the essence of great biz storytelling -- finding your key message / most pimportant point that is short, sweet and to the the point. Once you have your key message, extraneous details fall away and you are left with a crisp elegant story.


Read more about how to go for simplicity.

Allowing employees to step up and speak is a natural corollary of encouraging leaders to step back and listen.... By conferring attention on people who typically work in the organizational shadows, leaders enable employees to gain a higher profile inside (and, in some cases, outside) their company.

Most employee engagement initiatives however are aimed squarely at the employee themselves. New research suggests that a more appropriate target is the employees spouse.

The research found that the opinion of an employees spouse is crucial in determining their happiness at work. If the spouse believes that work is getting in the way of family life then it has a profound impact on employee engagement.

Why Executives Are So Bad At The Behavioral Side Of Management

Why Executives Are So Bad At The Behavioral Side Of Management | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
For too long, we’ve thought of “hard skills” and “soft skills” as mutually exclusive. Hard skills are supposed to provide the value, and soft skills supposed to be subordinate, inferior, and all about feelings. Some frameworks of leadership reinforce this myth by encouraging positioning leaders as above the group and magically removed from doubt and anxiety.


In reality, there is nothing “soft” about the skills needed to relate to people well enough to lead them.

When we talk about innovation, we often focus on individuals. Take the endless fascination with Steve Jobs as an innovative leader, or our innate tendency to attribute a discovery to a single inventor. In business, we generally identify good innovators and nurture their ability to generate creative practical solutions to new problems. There is less focus on the kinds of structures that promote a culture of innovation.

8 Cognitive Biases That Will Make or Break Your Culture | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

In HR we often rely on common sense. But there is a dark side to common sense that HR needs to stay aware of. Sometimes our instincts will steer us the wrong way. Behavioral psychologists call this “cognitive bias”. It will affect perceptions, it will affect objectivity, and it will affect relationships—in both positive and negative ways. That makes it very relevant to culture management and to you.
