Below are some of our favorite podcasts, tools, tips, and resources to become a better leader. ...

Why Everything You Know About Leadership is Wrong — Bad Words — Medium

Why Everything You Know About Leadership is Wrong - Bad Words - Medium

Here’s a question. What is leadership? And why, though we seem to train and indoctrinate people in it, and when that doesn’t work, beat people over the head with it, don’t we seem to be able produce many leaders worth following? Here’s my tiny theory: because much, maybe most, of what we suppose, assume, and believe is leadership isn’t.


A morally conflicted world is in desperate need of moral leadership. A way of life that offers us convenience — but is costing us the planet. Technology that delights us — but takes our jobs. Economies that reward us — but frustrate us with stagnation. Tribes we compete to belong to — which cost us ourselves. Social contracts which are broken — but no one quite knows how to rewrite. Such are the fraught moral dilemmas of the age....

How Do CEOs Consume Content? Quartz Asked 940 Executives to Find Out

How Do CEOs Consume Content? Quartz Asked 940 Executives to Find Out | Thought Leadership Strategies, Insight, Tools & Trends | Scoop.it

Mobile first; everything else, a distant second

Nearly 75 percent of respondents said they primarily consume content on mobile devices (50% said mobile phones specifically), a quarter of executives claimed to consume content primarily on desktops, and only one percent said they relied on print materials for news content.


The inbox is the new homepage (email still rules)

Executives are less likely to jump from homepage to homepage when looking for news, because most of what interests them already lives within their inbox. About 60 percent of respondents say they get their news from an email newsletter....

How To Build a Leadership Credo

How To Build a Leadership Credo | Thought Leadership Strategies, Insight, Tools & Trends | Scoop.it
Too many leaders run through their days without taking time to consider how and why they lead as they do. Days become months and months become years. Pressures, grooming, and politics all create counter-pressures to authenticity.


Articulating what you value, helps you to stay true to what you believe. Every year, I take time out to work on my leadership credo. For the first time this week, I formalized the process and shared it with a group of leaders representing over 10 countries and a cross-section of industries. Today, I share the easy-to-implement process along with video highlights (click here to see)....

Leadership starts with articulating your own "credo" or set of beliefs.

What Actually Makes People Trust You | Fast Company

What Actually Makes People Trust You | Fast Company | Thought Leadership Strategies, Insight, Tools & Trends | Scoop.it

The phrase "talk is cheap" is old, and in leadership roles, talk is particularly cheap.


It is easy to make pronouncements about directions and vision. For people to trust what you say, though, it is important to recognize that you communicate in three ways: through what you say, what you do, and what you reward. And each form of communication on this list is more important than the last....

What Leadership Looks Like in Different Cultures

What Leadership Looks Like in Different Cultures | Thought Leadership Strategies, Insight, Tools & Trends | Scoop.it
What makes a great leader? Although the core ingredients of leadership are universal (good judgment, integrity, and people skills), the full recipe for successful leadership requires culture-specific condiments. The main reason for this is that cultures differ in their implicit theories of leadership, the lay beliefs about the qualities that individuals need to display to be considered leaders. Depending on the cultural context, your typical style and behavioral tendencies may be an asset or a weakness. In other words, good leadership is largely personality in the right place.

Research has shown that leaders’ decision making, communication style, and dark-side tendencies are influenced by the geographical region in which they operate. Below we review six major leadership types that illustrate some of these findings.

Very interesting look at leadership styles and different cultures.

#1 Most Important Leadership Trait Worldwide [New Research]

#1 Most Important Leadership Trait Worldwide [New Research] | Thought Leadership Strategies, Insight, Tools & Trends | Scoop.it

Work customs and culture vary from country to country. For instance, meeting attendees in the U.S. seat themselves in no particular order around the conference table. But if the most junior person on the team were to take the seat farthest from the door in Japan? That's a no-no. This behavior flies in the face of Japanese custom, where the seating arrangement is determined by professional seniority (the most senior people sit farthest from the door, and the most junior people closest).


But while there are no doubt differences in work styles around the world, there are also similarities. After surveying nearly 200 leaders located in 15 different countries, Quantum Leadership Group recently discovered the most important leadership trait worldwide: High ethical and moral standards.In a Harvard Business Review article covering the data,


Sunnie Giles, president of Quantum Leadership Group, categorized this response along with the third most important trait ("clearly communicates expectations") as qualities that "creat[e] a safe and trusted environment."...

Jeremy's curator insight, March 20, 6:29 PM

I agree with the fact that a leader who has high ethical and moral standards, as well as strong, clear communication skills, are essential qualities of safe and trusted work environment. From what i have studied about strong leadership and and a strong business in general, these are two of the most important qualities. Especially communication. When everyone is on the same page, it makes for less mistakes, more quality work, and a smoother run business. When evreyone working together understands each others goals, they tend to get them done more efficiently and effectively.

Leadership Is About Emotion

Leadership Is About Emotion | Thought Leadership Strategies, Insight, Tools & Trends | Scoop.it
Make a list of the 5 leaders you most admire. They can be from business, social media, politics, technology, the sciences, any field. Now ask yourself why you admire them. The chances are high that your admiration is based on more than their accomplishments, impressive as those may be. I’ll bet that everyone on your list reaches you on an emotional level.This ability to reach people in a way that transcends the intellectual and rational is the mark of a great leader. They all have it. They inspire us. It’s a simple as that. And when we’re inspired we tap into our best selves and deliver amazing work.So, can this ability to touch and inspire people be learned? No and yes. The truth is that not everyone can lead, and there is no substitute for inborn talent. But for those who fall somewhat short of being a natural born star (which is pretty much MANY of us), leadership skills can be acquired, honed and perfected.
Jeff Domansky's insight:
Leadership is both an art and a science. Make these tools a part of your arsenal and use them well as you strive to reach people on an emotional level.
