Traits of a Motivated Leader | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Plenty of people are motivated by external factors, such as a big salary or the status that comes from having an impressive title or being part of a prestigious company. By contrast, those with leadership potential are motivated by a deeply embedded desire to achieve for the sake of achievement.

Quite short and straight forward post when it comes to how we should collaborate within a group.


One of the key underlined in this post is the following:

Replace competition with collaboration. Focus on fighting together for the group sake instead of the individuals. Might sounds a bit idealistic, but without adopting such behavior, it's a lose-lose game.

Effective leadership is a combination of common sense, patience and emotional iq. Similar to things you learn in kindergarten. My favorite McNulty thought is the one on Let me sit with that for a bit. Just because you aren’t doing something, it doesn’t mean that your brain isn’t working.

Sometimes we just try to over-think issues.  Give your brain a rest and more often than not a clear decision will emerge.

It's a helpful post:  simple, clear and well-timed for the July 4th holiday, referencing the critical impact of followership on leadership and Lincoln's great model for us all.  ~  Deb

John Michel's curator insight, July 3, 2013 7:39 PM

Have you ever wondered what makes a leader? We’ve heard that leaders have followers, but is there more? Leaders are going somewhere. What would you think of someone who claimed to be a leader, was surrounded by followers, but was going nowhere? Unfortunately, that’s the situation for many teams, organizations, and nations. So what really makes a leader?

Rehearsing Tomorrow – It’s No Joke

Rehearsing Tomorrow – It’s No Joke | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad, whose 1996 book Competing for the Future highlighted what they called the “40-30-20 Rule” of strategic planning.

 

By that they meant that most senior executives spend less than 40% of their time focused on the world outside their own organization, only about 30% thinking about the next three to five years, and no more than 20% of their time talking with their colleagues about the future to build a common view. In other words, only about 2.4% of management time (40% x 30% x 20%) is focused on building a corporate view of the future.

 

Yes, that’s right - 2.4%!

Developing Mindful Leaders for the C-Suite

Developing Mindful Leaders for the C-Suite | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Focus, clarity, creativity, compassion, and courage. These are the qualities of the mindful leaders. They are also the qualities that give today’s best leaders the resilience to cope with the many challenges coming their way and the resolve to sustain long-term success.

 

The real point of leverage — which though it sounds simple, many executives never discover — is the ability to think clearly and to focus on the most important opportunities.

Peace Overtures's curator insight, March 11, 6:36 AM

The important thing is to have a regular introspective practice that takes you away from your daily routines and enables you to reflect on your work and your life — to really focus on what is truly important to you. By doing so, you will not only be more successful, you will be happier and more fulfilled in the long run.

Chris Shern's curator insight, March 12, 3:08 AM

Things are not changing as fast as the world around and within business. There are still far too many managers in a world with an increasing need for mindful leaders.

Why Good Leaders Don't Always Negotiate

Why Good Leaders Don't Always Negotiate | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

With this erosion of strict authority structures in organisations, the question then becomes: If leaders and managers are no longer in the comfortable position of dictating policy, products or direction, how can they make effective change?

As companies look to level their organisational structures, negotiating will be key but it's not always recommended.

Marcellus Maxximus's curator insight, January 12, 11:32 PM

I scooped this because I think of myself as a good leader and I wanted to see what some good leaders do. And to be honest I thought in business you always had to negotiate at some time or another.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 1, 3:15 PM

Hopefully, this flatter structure will move into public education.

The #1 Problem Every Leader Has But Isn't Aware Of

The #1 Problem Every Leader Has But Isn't Aware Of | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

The job of every leader is to avoid, minimise or altogether eliminate problems. When the inevitable problems do arise, it’s a leader’s job to turn said problems into opportunity. The issue is this; most leaders are woefully inept when it comes to problem solving.

The biggest problem all leaders face is problem solving itself. The job of every leader is to avoid, minimise or altogether eliminate problems.
