This post brought me to tears because my biggest inspiration was/is my mom.  I could not agree with Karin more on this post, especially reason #2, taking the long term view.  


Above is a long term result of my mother's life of leadership as she craddles my first born.   She lead me from chaos to happiness.  


Miss you Mami!


Thanks Karin!!!


From the post:


#2. They Take The Long View – Moms invest deeply for the long run. They know that every move won’t be perfect, but they’re going for the long-term impact. Good moms and amazing leaders see mistakes as an opportunity to grow.

We need the courage to create ourselves daily. That is a wonderful quote which speaks to the roots of the word courage. Courage comes from coeur which means heart. We are on a daily journey and journey comes from the word journee which is not a measure of time but connotes the idea of journey in a timeless way.

When we think of the misuse of power, our thoughts inevitably fly to the headline grabbers: the tyrants and bullies, schemers and scammers, or our first boss or sixth grade teacher.  Yet surprisingly, some of the biggest power problems stem from under use, not overuse of power.

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change | Communication & Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership and management are two distinctly different but complimentary skill sets that all companies need. Leaders make sure the organization is doing the right things, while managers make sure they do those things right. Leadership is about coping with change while management is about coping with complex issues. Both are qualities that can be learned and both require constant focus on improvement. Especially when the organization is facing potential adaptive challenges.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen, Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.
Amy Melendez's insight:

From the article:

Great leaders that guide a company through necessary changes don’t do it all by themselves. They bring all team members together and leverage their talent pool in a collaborative manner. This creates buy-in at all levels which is critical. They identify stakeholders and place the responsibility on them for rolling out new processes. Change doesn’t have to be stressful. Face it head on and keep the company moving forward.

Eric Chan Wei Chiang's curator insight, August 12, 11:25 PM

These five steps may seem very simple but they are often taken for granted. To give direction a leader must take ownership and have a vision. Managing conflict and providing protection are often not pleasant and require great maturity from leaders. Shaping the norms and clarifying roles is often not given a very high priority as it involves intangible people skills.

Forty-five years ago, on July 20, 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin accomplished a feat considered impossible for much of human history. Escaping the gravitational pull of the earth, and soaring beyond its atmosphere, they were the first persons to set foot on the moon. Their successful mission was the crowning achievement of NASA’s space program.

Trust. Your ability to lead is severely hampered without it, and the more of it you have, the easier leadership becomes. 


Via donhornsby, Kimberley Richardson
Amy Melendez's insight:

These days, "trust", "authentic" and "genuine" seem to be turning into buzz words. This though provoking article leads us to look beyond the current culture and examine our actions.

 

From the article:

 

In the end, the other person decides if you are worthy of their trust based on their view of your intent, not your actual intent.

 

One way to read this would be to nod your head and agree, thinking about the people these behaviors remind you of.

 

A much better way to read this would be to reflect on how those behaviors impacted your trust and relationship with those people and then ask yourself the harder question – how often am I compromising trust by doing these things or things like them?

(From the article) The Blind CC. Imagine this . . . Someone sends an email to a group and bcc’s someone. Then the bcc’er replies to all, not noticing that they were blind-copied. If you were on the To: or CC: lines, wouldn’t you immediately wonder why the other person was bcc’d to start with? And more importantly, wouldn’t you start to wonder how many times the original person sends emails to you and they are bcc’ing someone else? We all want leaders who are transparent, authentic and genuine – and it seems to me that using the bcc flies in the face of that goal. There might be a time to email something separately to someone and give them additional information or perspective, but why make it a blind copy leaving everyone at risk for miscommunication and misunderstanding?

Trust is the key to building genuine relationships and without it, performance, productivity and loyalty will suffer.

I love the neo-liberal vocabulary i.e. you can bring it down to the education industry. It is important to note that education is not the same as School and is not an industry. The words which form education, educare and educere, are two forms of leading. Pedagogy is leading. It makes sense that teaching is leading. It is not managing which is what people outside classrooms think it is sometimes.

Another Greatest Generation Is On The Way

Another Greatest Generation Is On The Way | Communication & Leadership | Scoop.it
A historic collapse creates a unique environment in which to forge leaders.
Amy Melendez's insight:

Over the past six decades, I have witnessed every conceivable approach to leadership education. The leadership vacuums of recent decades reveal that even the best business schools have not done their finest at teaching some core aspects of leadership.

The first of those core aspects is the capacity for good judgment–the ability to make right decisions while flying blind, based on knowledge, wisdom and an ability to stay wedded to an overriding goal. As Democrats and Republicans bicker today about prescriptions for economic renewal, let us not even pretend to act as though we can be any more certain than a first-time parent. Certainly we have heard considerable advice from those who came before us, yet we must work in a constantly evolving context, improvising without a net.

Second is the ability to engage others and move them alongside you, toward a shared purpose or meaning. This flows from what the psychologist and science journalist Daniel Goleman calls “emotional intelligence,” the capacity to understand and connect with the hopes and fears of those around you. Too many brilliant and skilled people have failed, to their own shock, because they lacked this.

However, the things that have not been taught well in the B-school classroom or the corporate university can still be caught by the Crucible Generation. Lacking our comforts and facing uncertain threats, they will have a heightened receptivity to lessons from the world around them. Smart educators will seek to build on this serendipity in traditional classrooms and learning communities.

Via Ron McIntyre, Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.
Amy Melendez's insight:

From the post:

 

Employees of an anticipatory organization understand that those who can see the future most accurately will have the biggest advantage. They know that you cannot change the past, but you can shape the future based on the actions you take in the present. As such, they actively embrace the fact that many future disruptions, problems, and game-changing opportunities are predictable and represent unprecedented ways to gain advantage. They know that it’s better to solve predictable problems before they happen, and that future problems often represent the biggest opportunities. Above all else, they are confident and empowered by having a shared view of the future based on Hard Trends and what I call the “science of certainty.”

I have been advocating proactive management for decades so it seems the time has come.  What do you think?

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 22, 11:49 AM

Well. don't completely forget about Lean and Agile. Just broaden the perspective. Lean and agile imply readiness and responsiveness which are good things. But they should not imply "reactive-ness"; . responding well to current circumstances  is simply not enough. Anticipating, forecasting, predicting, as well as possible, future needs and conditions is also critical.

 

The assumptions that present conditions will prevail and simple improvements upon existing processes or  activities will remain sustainable is unwise. Effective organizations both adapt and strive to improve their adaptability. This can be described as sustainable adaptation.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 22, 7:55 PM

Reacting and responding are two different things. Reacting is often a spur of the moment and off the cuff action that has little thought behind. Response, which is often understood as synonymous, is a measured process of thinking and acting. The word response is the root word for responsibility. Even in being lean and agile, we should be responsible and thoughtful in our responses.

A Simple Mind Trick that Reduces Emotional Pain by Guy Winch, Ph.D.

A Simple Mind Trick that Reduces Emotional Pain  by Guy Winch, Ph.D. | Communication & Leadership | Scoop.it
How to reduce the pain associated with distressing experiences

 

Ozlem Ayduk from the University of California and Ethan Kross from the University of Michigan conducted a fascinating series of studies which investigated the factors that distinguish adaptive from maladaptive self-reflection (read about the surprising dangers of brooding here). They discovered that the perspective via which we recall an experience determines how much pain its memory evokes.

Amy Melendez's insight:

From the article:

"When we replay and analyze painful experiences in our minds, our natural tendency is to do so from a first-person or self-immersed perspective—where we see the scene unfolding through our own eyes. Using this perspective usually elicits significant emotional pain as it is makes us relive the experience. Ayduk and Krosss had participants replay emotionally painful memories from a third-person perspective—which involves visualizing ourselves within the scene as if we were watching it from the perspective of an outside observer."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the article, Dr. Winch gives us 5 steps to use to help us change our perspective along with great links to related articles.
