Here is another article on leadership that will help us chart our future and create it well.


Heaven knows, just looking at the news headlines these days reminds us how critical leadership is. And I'm not just talking at the political level. Nor am I talking about leadership at the big corporate level. I'm talking about leadership at YOUR level -- no matter where you are in your career or professional life. We are all required to be leaders today in some way, shape or form, whether we work alone or with others.


So what skills do we need to cultivate now to be awesome in the next 20? This article covers them.


Out of the 6 discussed, 4 are related to storytelling:

  1. Questions Not Answers. Effective business storytelling is NOT about 'telling'. It's about evoking stories from others and listening. Then sharing a story in return. That's the exact opposite of what is usually taught however. In order to really leverage story as a leader, it's all about mastering the Art Of The Question. Knowing the right kinds of questions to ask when is one of the secrets to the universe. No kidding. You 'gotta master this one.
  2. Employee Pull. Story is a pull technology, not a push technology. Stories pull people into your world. If you are still relating to storytelling as a push technology -- let me tell you a story so I can push my message to you -- cut it out. Pivot and work with stories as a pull technology so you are working with modern 21st Century skills.
  3. Customer Pull. Ditto #2
  4. Purpose. Got a purpose for your company that creates a positive impact on the planet? In order for Purpose to come alive, to capture the hearts/minds of people, story is your #1 vehicle for getting the job done. Get this under your belt today so you are propelled past others who are late to the game.


There are 2 other skills the author talks about in this post. For me they are long on concepts and short on examples or how-to. But they are good signposts to keep on the radar screen and find more articles research on.


OK -- I'm off to client meetings. While I'm gone doing my story thing, read the insights from this article (of which there are many) so you can start preparing today for your leadership of tomorrow.

6 Ways Leaders Unknowingly Undervalue Their Employees

6 Ways Leaders Unknowingly Undervalue Their Employees | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Leaders often find themselves getting lost within the growing demands of the workplace and losing sight of what matters most to their employees. As such, they fail to realize the negative repercussions that the lack of strategic focus can have on their ability to deepen relationships with employees, which is important to understanding their specific needs for success. As a consequence, employees begin to lose trust in leaders that they perceive as self-absorbed, complacent and only concerned about their own well-being – rather than interested in advancing the people they are responsible for leading.

Creating A Culture Of Engagement

Creating A Culture Of Engagement | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

“Engagement comes from leaders. People look to leadership to set the tone and expectations,” says Sangeeta Agrawal, a Gallup consultant. “If executives don’t set the stage and practice what they preach about engagement, it’ll be harder for others to follow”… The numbers support this. Managers who are directly supervised by highly engaged executive teams are 39% more likely to be engaged than managers who are supervised by executive teams with below-average engagement.”
