I deplore mediocrity ... However mediocrity is a symptom of ineffective leadership, not bad.... Setting clear expectations, rallying people around KPIs they believe in, developing a peer accountability and speak your mind when you see poor performance are a few ways around it..... either way its up to YOU the leader to handle it . Good Read

Random Acts Of Leadership™ | 9 Ways A Leader Can Earn Trust

Random Acts Of Leadership™ | 9 Ways A Leader Can Earn Trust | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

The conditions for trusting someone are very personal. In fact, despite how logical your assessments regarding trustworthiness may seem to you, it’s important to remember that not everyone takes the same approach. Some of us grant trust and take it away when someone does not live up to our standards or expectations. Others believe trust must be earned. Many of us fall somewhere in between.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 20, 9:42 AM
We use the excuse of having to go to so many meetings or back to back meetings not only as a reason for being late, but for not preparing adequately. As John Wooden said: “failing to prepare is preparing to fail.” It also wastes people’s time, including yours. If you waste my time, how likely am I to trust you with something else that matters to me?

4 Habits of Highly Dysfunctional Teams | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Savvy HR leaders know that high-functioning teams are the engines of performance in organizations. Yet teams that are able to truly accelerate their performance and maintain it are rare; most teams are bedeviled by challenges that include competing agendas, distorted decision making, and a lack of focus. Indeed, our new research finds that only 13% of the 3,000 teams we studied were classified as top performers (accelerating). Fully 27% were lagging or outright derailing.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 7, 12:07 PM

Here's a quick, but really good article on the significance of flow states and improved leadership.

 

What's a flow state? As the author Evan Sinar says, it's "total absorption in the task at hand; the task taking precedence over everything else, and actively working on the task itself becomes its own reward."

 

We've all had these types of experiences where we are 'in the zone' and we lose sense of time. Productivity and creativity soars when we are in a flow state.

 

Sinar discusses why flow states for leadership are important, companies who are focusing on this as part of their leadership development, and how to set up flow state experiences.

 

Here's my addition -- for years I've noticed that when a person is immersed in telling a story, it's actually inducing a little mini-flow state. The higher the risk (i.e. a big presentation), the more intense the flow state.

 

The more you develop your storytelling skills,  you are actually at the same time building your flow state muscles. The more you experience flow states, the easier it is to trigger them. 

 

Pretty neat, huh?

 

Story on and get into flow!

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 8, 7:42 PM
To be fully engaged in what one is doing is essential. Time appears to stand still in those moments. Educating is leading, thus pedagogy/andragogy, which also involve leading, can involve flow.

“Leadership training to become the leader of tomorrow.”

Mark Murphy’s latest book, “Truth at Work: The Science of Delivering Tough Messages,” dives into everybody’s favorite topic (not) — confrontation in the workplace. According to Murphy, nine out of 10 employees and managers are reluctant to speak the truth. This ambiguity is responsible for productivity delays and non-action on good ideas. But by opening up conversations, avoiding personal feelings and focusing on facts, Murphy said it’s not as hard to get everyone at work to receive and accept hard truths.
