Lovely tribute and thought piece about Mandela as a leader who understood forgiveness, generosity and what his core principles were.

Carol Sherriff's curator insight, December 8, 2013 3:32 PM

I was a little cautious reading this the first time. Such tributes and thought pieces can be tacky. This one however does justice to the man and calls us all to find the inner strengths to make a similar contribution to a better world.

...4. Turns out leadership really is personal

Bosses are typically viewed as arrogant individuals who drive people using objectives and metrics. One study found that 60% of employees are miserable – not because of low pay, poor workplace benefits, or insufficient vacation days – but because they don’t feel connected at work.

Some of these are confirming my intuition, but all of them are right on the money and it's good to see the research.

Billy R Bennett's curator insight, December 11, 2012 9:01 PM

Karen Dietz curated this article by Daryl Conner on four types of burning platforms.  A burning platform is a concept leaders use to define the reason for change.  As Daryl points out this may be based on a negative problem  based appeal or a positive, future opportunity.


Which is better?


Research on personal change has reported greater long term success with positive images.    In most serious change projects, we usually use both. 


You cannot and should not hide business challenges from employees.  


However, once they understand the challenge they will then want to hear your reasoning about why they should consider giving more of themselves to the organization.   I would make it good.

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.

Change is in the air and oh, how I love this article about a newer model for getting organizational change done -- Viral Change!

 

When a company starts working with stories, it requires re-thinking current models because the dynamics of storytelling (i.e memory, simulation, conversation, listening, sharing, ethics, etc.) demand different models and implementation strategies.

Is Your Leadership Limiting Your Organizations Ability to Grow?

Is Your Leadership Limiting Your Organizations Ability to Grow? | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership capacity is more than simply skill development; it’s about performance, growth, transformation and change. For the purpose of our discussion in this series of articles, let’s define it as;

 

“Leadership Capacity is the skilful use of leadership attributes for the growth and development of ourselves, our colleagues and our organization”.

 

Great leaders not only understand how to engage and inspire their teams to get the best results — they understand the need to create participatory and collaborative processes that develop the abilities of the next generation of leaders.

 

Leadership lays the groundwork for success

 

Successful companies do not happen by accident. They are the result of building effective leadership capacity and an awareness and willingness to take the necessary steps in identify internal talent and nurture them into the leaders of tomorrow.

7 Reasons Employees Don't Trust Their Leaders

7 Reasons Employees Don't Trust Their Leaders | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

As the world mourns the loss of Nelson Mandela and commemorates his greatness as a leader, we would do well to remember that one of the  many hallmarks of his leadership was trust.  The greatest leaders in the world gravitated toward Mr. Mandela because he was genuinely trustworthy and his purpose was to support peace, prosperity and unity not only in South Africa – but throughout the world. Mandela was able to lead people in ways that many find impossible to do. As he famously said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

 

Unfortunately, trust is in rare supply these days.  People are having trouble trusting each other, according to an AP-GfK poll conducted in November 2013, which found that Americans are suspicious of each other in their everyday encounters.

Understanding the Future of Work: 8 Traits of Collaborative Leadership ... - Business 2 Community | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

With the collaborative economy pushing businesses into the next phase of social business, executives must learn how to motivate, encourage and lead employees [and customers too] in a way that adds value to everyone involved in the collaborative work environment. Employees and customers are collaborating on products, services and content more than ever before. In preparation for the collaborative economy, consider what role do executives play in fostering a collaborative environment when employees and customers can receive what they need from each other?

Little Johnny comes home one day, looks down at his feet, and gives you his report card. You smile at him as you open it up and look inside. Then your smile disappears when you see the F in math.

 

Fast forward 20 years to the performance review:

 

"You've worked hard this year John. Your client orientation is superb. You've met your sales goals and you're a solid team player. But you have an area that needs development, specifically, your detail orientation. The spreadsheets we get from you are a mess. Let's talk about how you can get better in that."

Developing Charisma - Increasing Your Influence in the Workplace

Developing Charisma - Increasing Your Influence in the Workplace | Success Leadership | 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

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.

Business Sense: Storytelling--The Secret Key to Leadership | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Why storytelling?
Nothing else works.

 

Slides leave listeners dazed. Prose remains unread. Reasons don’t change behavior. When it comes to inspiring people to embrace some strange new change in behavior, storytelling isn’t just better than the other tools. It’s the only thing that works.
