The Most Productive Way to Develop as a Leader

The Most Productive Way to Develop as a Leader | The Art and Science of Leadership | Scoop.it

Everybody loves self-improvement. We want to get smarter, network better, be connected, balance our lives, and so on. That’s why we’re such avid consumers of “top 10” lists of things to do to be a more effective, productive, promotable, mindful — you name it — leader. We read all the lists, but we have trouble sticking to the “easy steps” because while we all want the benefits of change, we rarely ever want to do the hard work of change.

Useful recognition of the importance of both trust and respect. 

Graeme Reid's curator insight, January 16, 2014 11:03 PM

Investing in respect is one of the best investments that you will make.  It is easy to be negative, pass on gossip or be insincere, but far harder to be aware of your actions and avoid negativity.

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, January 23, 2014 9:26 AM

Trust is the foundation to any high performing relationship, team, and organization.  One of the greatest gifts you can give anyone other than your time and attention is respect.

 

Respecting someon's time, respecting someon's idea, respecting someon's decision, etc.  (It means removing the Yes...but language, and starting with respect)

There’s a Difference Between Cooperation and Collaboration | The Art and Science of Leadership | Scoop.it

Everyone seems to agree that collaboration across functions is critical for major projects and initiatives. The reality, however, is that meshing the skills and resources of different departments, each focused on its own distinct targets, to achieve a larger organizational goal is much easier said than done.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight: Manfred Kets de Vries makes a compelling case for integrative thinking as he writes: "Compartmentalisation of opposites can produce a distorted picture of reality and restricts the range of our thoughts and emotions. When we look at a multifaceted situation through a binary lens we are bound to miss essential details. It harms relationships, diminishes our well-being and limits our understanding of the world."

How to Get Your Employees to Go Beyond the Call of Duty

Being humble is not just a virtue, it's an important leadership practice. If you're overly self-promotional and rule your team with an I'm-always-right attitude, chances are your employees will feel alienated, resentful, and unwilling to go the extra mile for you.


A recent study shows that employees who work for humble leaders are more likely to work harder and come up with better ideas.
