Lisa Moran's curator insight, July 30, 7:52 PM

Its always important to realise, especially when it comes to safety, that we can all be leaders in some way.  Leadership is one of the most important factors in changing safety and safety culture within the workplace, without which safety is seen as not being important or meaningful.

We can all contribute by being leaders when it comes to safety by setting a good example, being observant and taking the initiative.

Jessica Leigh's comment, July 27, 6:08 PM
“Treat others the way you would want to be treated.” This is very accurate as the describe how the attitude and work ethic of an entire company can start with the boss. Why would anyone give their best effort when their boss doesn’t give them that respect? The effort he/she gives is the effort they will receive back. This may also apply to the police force. If the captain of a station gives his/her officers a hard time about quotas, they might do the bare minimum because the captain is only concerned with numbers. If we want our employees to be great, then they need to be treated as such.

4 Reasons Great Leaders Admit Their Mistakes

4 Reasons Great Leaders Admit Their Mistakes | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

You can never go at leadership alone. Unfortunately, too many leaders allow their egos and hidden agendas to stand in the way of doing what is best for the people and organizations they serve. Leaders are not responsible for always being right. However, they are accountable to see that problems become opportunities and solutions are proactively found so that momentum is never lost.

4 Mistakes Really Nice Leaders Make

4 Mistakes Really Nice Leaders Make | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

We all want to be liked and accepted in both our personal and professional lives. But when it comes to effective leadership, a high need to be liked most often leads to disaster. I’ve encountered many leaders who were genuinely “nice” people, and would do absolutely anything to support their people and make them happy. Sounds like a wonderful person to work for, right? In reality, these leaders had significant problems on their teams, and very low morale.

The relevance of modern artists is measured to a great degree by their ability to refresh aesthetic concepts and innovate.

Creating Space to Lead - The Create Network

Creating Space to Lead - The Create Network | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Leading in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world takes up a lot of our psychological space.  Leaders are required to think in more complex ways, build relationships with a wider range of people, and behave with a higher level of agility. All of these take a lot of conscious effort.   When we are under pressure our psychological space shrinks and we are unable to make this effort.  As a consequence, our thinking becomes black and white, we become emotionally defensive, and our behaviour becomes inflexible.

The Shockingly Simple Secret Behind Employee Motivation

The Shockingly Simple Secret Behind Employee Motivation | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Here's the central law of employee motivation, of coaxing a great performance from your employees, day after day: Employees who are selected, oriented, and reinforced properly, and who are surrounded by peers of the same caliber, will thrive when given significant autonomy. Otherwise, they'll wither.

 

There are dozens of studies to support this, inside and outside of business life.

The case for autonomy: just look in the mirror.

Make Your Team Less Hierarchical

Make Your Team Less Hierarchical | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Most of us have read about elite teams, seen them depicted in movies, or perhaps been fortunate enough to be part of one. Elite teams win the big games, save lives in emergency rooms, and fight in conflicts around the world. And there was a time when creating highly effective small teams was a sufficient way to set the conditions for success. In the military, for example, winning a war was a matter of scaling with efficiency while ensuring that every fighting unit was superior to the enemy unit it encountered.

The clock read 9:58. It was that time of the week again. Suddenly a team meeting had been called. I took a deep breath and looked over at my colleague Johan. As our eyes crossed I could see the anxiety mixed with a sense of inevitability in them. Day after day the life was slowly sucked out of us. Fear and anxiety ruled our working days, fueled by uncertainty of when the next blow would come.

Creative leaders are driven by their internal passion and purpose, yet they also have an externally oriented, explorative mindset. Creative leaders lead from the front by envisioning a better future, pointing the way and setting an aspiration, yet they achieve this by orchestrating a creative team, often leading from behind to bring out the best in others.
