To be a leader does not mean wearing the title of "leader." It's not something you choose to be one minute and then choose not to be the next. A leader is not a leader simply because he or she has been promoted. And a leader is not someone who sits in a position of management.

What makes a great leader? 

 “It’s true that imitation is one of the greatest forms of flattery, but not when it comes to leadership—and every great leader in my life, from Mike Tomlin to Olympic ski coach Scott Rawles, led from a place of authenticity. Learn from others, read autobiographies of your favorite leaders, pick up skills along the way... but never lose your authentic voice, opinions and, ultimately, how you make decisions.” —Jeremy Bloom

The words that leaders (and all of us) choose to share are extremely revealing about their inner mindset and the way in which they operate in the world, and how much good they believe exists in that world. As we know, words can be used as weapons or they can be tools for growth. Take the time today to read an inspiring speech of a great leader such as Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln or Eleanor Roosevelt, and you’ll find words that generate so much positive emotion, uplifting us with a compelling vision of a better, more loving, free world that we want to create.

Not every decision is a good one. That’s the truth for every single one of us. However, the worst decision is thinking your original decision is do-or-die. Come on, there is always another way forward. Dig deep into your humility, take a deep breath, and be the leader you’re meant to be.

Is Hierarchy Helping Or Harming Your Organization?

Is Hierarchy Helping Or Harming Your Organization? | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Hailed as the anti-hierarchy, holacracy is the new business buzzword. Developed by Ternary Software CEO Brian Robertson in 2007, at its most basic holacracy is a self-governing operating system where everyone within an organization takes responsibility for delivering on the company’s purpose. With roles arranged in circles rather than layers, [...]

Holacracy is helping Zappos.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 24, 2014 3:39 PM

At the minimum organization structure is about roles and relationships. Whether flat or heirarchical,  individuals in the structure must understand the purpose of their role and how it interacts with other roles. Beyond having a clear focus and direction for activity, they need autonomy and authority to do what is necessary for the role, the competencies required for the role, and the means to develop new competencies, processes and procedures as organization's circumstances change.

Understand leadership is not about you. It’s about others. The leader may hold power and authority, but those things come with obligations. Leadership is ultimately an act of service. It’s impossible to treat it otherwise and achieve greatness. With great power comes great responsibility—not only to yourself but also to those you lead. As a leader, you must always be willing to show accountability and to respect and serve others. The true source of power is not titles or bank accounts but service and responsibility.

Why Employees Don't Trust Their Leadership

Why Employees Don't Trust Their Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Of 33,000 workers globally, one in three said they don't trust their employer. What gives?

Via donhornsby

donhornsby's curator insight, April 7, 2016 10:37 AM
(From the article): One in three people don’t trust their employer. That’s according to the new Edelman "Trust Barometer", a survey of 33,000 people in 28 countries about trust in the workplace.

 Among the other notable findings, trust decreases down an organization’s hierarchy: 64% of executives, 51% of managers, and 48% of rank and file staff say they trust their organizations, and employees say they trust peers more than CEOs when it comes to company information. Right now, many workers have their choice of jobs that boast high earnings and a range of career opportunities. To stay competitive in the war for talent, most employers are offering a full complement of benefits and perks as well as beefing up their efforts to engage workers through inclusion initiatives. Indeed, many employees among the Top 100 Great Places To Work reported being satisfied with their jobs, but also having a high level of trust for their companies.

 That’s obviously not the case everywhere, according to the Edelman Trust Barometer. The survey revealed gaps between factors that employees rate as important for building trust and how their leaders rated based on those attributes.

“We all need to be leaders, regardless of our formal title or role. This starts with inner self-leadership and moves outward to influence, guide, support, and lead others. The process of becoming a leader is the same as the process of becoming a highly effective human being. Leadership development is personal development. Leadership ultimately shows itself in what we do “out there.” But it starts “in here.” “~Jim Clemmer – Growing the Distance

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

 

The Drucker School of Management and Wharton Business School both offer courses in mindfulness meditation. Virginia Tech is sponsoring "contemplative practices for a technological society," a conference for engineers who integrate contemplative disciplines into their work. Google offers courses in meditation and yoga

 

Aetna, Merck, General Mills--the list goes on--all are exploring how meditation can help their leaders and employees agilely thrive in today's fast-paced business environment. And the benefits are widely publicized: sustained attention span, improved multi-tasking abilities, strengthened immune system, increased emotional intelligence, improved listening skills...And there is science behind such claims.
