Leading with Control Versus Leading with Influence - Ron Edmondson

Leading with Control Versus Leading with Influence - Ron Edmondson | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

I am a controlling person. It's part of my character. I know that. I test that way with StrengthsFinders. I think my team, however, would tell you that I don't perform as a controlling leader. It's been a long process to discipline myself not to respond how I am wired. Successful leaders understand the difference in leading with influence versus leading with control. The differences are measured in results.

Humility helps you to demonstrate your intention of working with the other party, rather than against them, to create a mutually beneficial relationship. It is your humility that will allow the other party to “win” the argument as they concentrate on the climate and maximising the total value of the deal from their perspective.

Excessive busyness and petrification stood out for me. I think the two go hand-in-hand. Taking time to breath and just be is essential in today's world. Also excessive planning goes against the idea we are each human with a particular narrative and subjectivity that filters a planned curriculum in schools. We each bring our own curriculum and course of living.

New Leaders Need More Than Onboarding

New Leaders Need More Than Onboarding | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
To help companies understand what executives must do to become effective in their new roles and how to help them accomplish that more quickly, we developed an assessment framework. In this model the “what” is a set of core transition tasks for new hires. The “how” is broken down into distinct levels of support that companies can provide. But before we get into those details, let’s take a closer look at where most organizations fall short in their onboarding efforts and the benefits they can gain by changing their practices.

New Study Reveals That Only 53% of American Employees Feel Appreciated at Work—Are Poor Recognition Programs to Blame? | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Employee recognition firm AttaCoin recently released the results of a new study of American full-time employees, The AttaCoin 2017 Employee Appreciation Study. This annual assessment, based on an April survey of 500 full-time employees across the U.S., explores employee attitudes and how they are affected by employee recognition programs. Executed in partnership with Survata, the survey is based a census-representative population sample balanced across age group, income, and geographic region. According to the study, only 53% of employees report feeling “appreciated at work”—meaning that almost half do not. This result, consistent with previous studies, indicates a major opportunity to improve

Lisa Gorman's curator insight, April 25, 12:23 AM

www.inc.com provide us with some useful ideas here about what 'really good' leaders to at work.  I've been thinking about the strategies offered; 1. giving feedback 2. regular team planning sessions 3. conducting stay interviews 4. recognition & appreciation 5. freedom to make decisions 6. allowing people to take on new responsibilities 7. open-door policy.  All of these rely on the fundamentally critical technical skill of being able to give and receive feedback and the heart-connected qualities that allow people to thrive because you want them to do their best.  For me, really good leaders empower people to succeed.  Allowing freedom is great, but to do this without building trust and sound relationships first, could be an action taken too soon. Interesting topic!

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 .

Why Your Own Resilience Matters Less Than Your Team’s

Why Your Own Resilience Matters Less Than Your Team’s | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

In business today, the term retains its developmental psychology origins; it’s still largely considered an individual trait. But if you’re looking to build resilient teams or entire organizations, it’s the resilience of all those relationships that may matter even more. After all, you can hire as many resilient leaders as you like, but they can quit and go be resilient someplace else.

Give your people C.R.A.P. if you want great employee retention

Give your people C.R.A.P. if you want great employee retention | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Early in my career, I worked for an incredible general manager that taught me a lot of C.R.A.P. -- caring, respect, appreciation and praise. He also taught me that giving people C.R.A.P. was at the heart of driving employee loyalty and retention.

This is simple stuff but it is not easy to do for some reason. It takes time and hard work on the part of a leader to give people C.R.A.P. But, if you do it, your people will be loyal, follow you anywhere and want to stay working for you. Giving your people C.R.A.P. will also give you a feeling of accomplishment and the impact on the organization will be something that goes beyond the bottom line. Remember, C.R.A.P. works!

Whether you’ve just started training your first hire or you’ve been managing scores of people for decades, you’re in the position of being a leader. And if there’s one aspect of leadership that holds true regardless of staff size or industry, it’s that being one isn’t for the thin-skinned or the faint of heart.

So much of your job isn’t about hitting goals, but rather about being rooted in reality, constantly striving to bring perspective and empathy to whatever situations you encounter. Sometimes, finding the right words can be the biggest challenge of your day. But other times, you’re overthinking it and it’s as simple as saying these six tiny sentences:

There are likely more than six. I don't know and asking for questions are always keys. I found in teaching that was a dependency role that emerged. Many teachers wanted their principals to tell them what to do, but only after a long and often argumentative debate. The flip side was the principals seemed to want this.

10 habits of super likable leaders

10 habits of super likable leaders | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

If you want to be a leader whom people follow with absolute conviction, you have to be a likable leader. Tyrants and curmudgeons with brilliant vision can command a reluctant following for a time, but it never lasts. They burn people out before they ever get to see what anyone is truly capable of.

When I speak to smaller audiences, I often ask them to describe the best and worst leaders they have ever worked for. People inevitably ignore innate characteristics (intelligence, extraversion, attractiveness, and so on) and instead focus on qualities that are completely under the leader’s control, such as approachability, humility, and positivity.
