Leading Blog: A Leadership Blog: 5 Leadership Lessons: Where Negative Emotions Come From

Leading Blog: A Leadership Blog: 5 Leadership Lessons: Where Negative Emotions Come From | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

“All emotions, especially negative emotions, distort evaluations. A person in the grip of a negative emotion is incapable of thinking clearly or rationally.”

How to Reignite Your Leadership ‘Mojo’ - Chief Learning Officer, Solutions for Enterprise Productivity | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Leaders need to light a fire under employees to compete in a rapid, global economy. First, leaders must find a way to motivate themselves.

I Have Terrible News: Value Of Communication In Honesty

I Have Terrible News: Value Of Communication In Honesty | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

When CEOs describe what they want most in people they hire, they  consistently talk about honesty and integrity.  Among the leadership competencies that we measure, honesty and integrity have consistently received high scores, putting them at the first or second position in comparison to everything else.

 

One of the fundamental principles of good leadership is the willingness to treat others with respect. Our ability and courage to speak honestly with one another is most certainly at the heart of treating one another with respect.

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Just how many types of stories are there? The answer is, as usual, it depends who you ask. Various storytelling aficionados categorize stories in different ways, and there are no hard and fast rules.

 

These 5 broad categories and the examples shared in each are really good and will build a good foundation for leadership storytelling. According to Paul Smith in his forthcoming book on leadership storytelling "Lead With A Story" (August 20112), there are actually 21 different categories/applications for leaders to know about and use.

Jason Lauritsen » Hierarchies have killed Leadership

Hierarchies, by their nature, favor control over leadership. ”Management” as a profession today is a product of the hierarchy. And, I think, the hierarchy has deteriorated our skills in leadership. When in a pinch, we use the control of the hierarchy to get things moved forward rather than try to win the hearts and minds of the people as a leader would do.
