Teach the Key Ingredients for Leadership Success

Teach the Key Ingredients for Leadership Success | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
There’s a major disconnect between what companies look for in their top performers and best leaders, and what students learn in school. Why don’t we better align these skill sets? For instance, among educators there is lots of talk these days about “grit”: the tenacity to focus on working toward a goal despite obstacles and... Read more »

With such a focus today on teaching for exams, maybe we need an exam in leadership to get this kind of learning embedded?

Tom Hood's curator insight, July 4, 2014 8:54 AM

Having just finished our fifth class of Leadership Academy for our emerging CPA leaders, this article resonated  with me. While the notion of EQ as a critical leadership quality is on point, I think it must be in the context of how leadership is changing in this hyper-connected, rapidly changing world. When we asked our emerging leaders to compare and contrast leadership across the ages, they identified the common traits we all know - vision, communication, passion, and authority. Yet when looking at the current state, they added words like collaborative, transparent, more communication,.

 

These skills include the ability to engage and inspire followers to a shared vision and action. The other critical piece is to 'know themselves' in a way they can be that authentic leader with their own unique style rather than trying to fit some standard leadership model that forces them to change. We do this with Strengths-Finders and Values to help them become self-aware.

 

Thus I see the idea of EQ to include specific group dynamics, collaboration, listening, and making your thinking visible to others. These skills can be taught and developed and we are seeing emerging leaders  able to apply these as they grow into the kind of future leaders we will need.

Email Can Spell Disaster for Leaders

Email Can Spell Disaster for Leaders | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's curator insight, March 24, 3:39 PM

 

"We’ve all done it: Every leader is guilty of having used email rather than talking to someone in person. When I worked in a corporate office, it was commonplace to send emails to team members whose offices were only a short distance down the hall.

 

"That’s because email is easier and faster than having a conversation. And, as an added bonus, there’s a record of the transaction (just in case you need proof later on). The problem, however, is when leaders use email in place of face-to-face communication more often than they should."

Leaders should ask these questions both on a daily basis and during critical moments. Of course, these aren’t the only questions to ask; context certainly matters. But I have found these five to be a very practical and useful way to ensure understanding, generate new ideas, inspire progress, encourage responsibility, and remain focused on what is genuinely important.

12 Truly Inspiring Company Vision and Mission Statement Examples

12 Truly Inspiring Company Vision and Mission Statement Examples | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Where does customer loyalty come from?


When you successfully create a connection with your customers and employees, many of them might stay loyal for life -- and you'll have the chance to increase your overall profitability while building a solid foundation of brand promoters. But achieving that connection is no easy task. The companies that succeed are ones that stay true to their core values over the years and create a company that employees and customers are proud to associate with.


That's where company vision and mission statements come in. A mission statement is intended to clarify the 'what' and 'who' of a company, while a vision statement adds the 'why' and 'how' as well. As a company grows, its objectives and goals may change. Therefore, vision statements should be revised as needed to reflect the changing business culture as goals are met.


Check out some of the following company vision and mission statements for yourself -- and get inspired to write one for your brand.

Coaching is one of the most powerful leadership and sales tools.

In ten minutes or less, you can ask strategic and thought-provoking questions that can help drive beneficial changes in behavior, help build team cohesiveness, and get things done effectively.

Respect is the one thing. I think about this through the teaching lens. I wanted to follow the leaders who respected my teaching, asked questions to understand how I taught, and engaged in thoughtful conversations with me. Those leaders were few and far between. For the last decade, they did not exist. I felt I was working for someone, not with someone. Having said this, I discovered, along the way, the respect I desired was what my students desired, as well.

The Leader as Coach – 4 Ways to Develop a Coaching Mindset

The Leader as Coach – 4 Ways to Develop a Coaching Mindset | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Learning new skills can be awkward and uncomfortable. Think back to the first time you interviewed for a job or spoke in front of a group. It’s possible you made some mistakes, but in the long run you grew and developed.

And if you were lucky enough to have someone supporting and partnering with you—someone coaching you through the experience—chances are that support really helped.

In today’s workplace, business leaders are encouraged to coach their direct reports. To do this, leaders must develop a coaching mindset—a mindset that looks for the potential in others.  Here are four ways to get started.

Top 10 Talent Practices

Top 10 Talent Practices | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

I am a big fan of top 10 lists. I make them all the time.  To name a few: “Top song covers that are better than the original”, “Top hockey fights”, “Best movie sequels”, “Most underrated guitar players.” I could do that all day.  So when a friend of mine asked me what talent practices are on my short list, I jumped at the challenge of turning it into a top 10 list.  

Here are the criteria for the list:

Low cost and/or high return on investment – The cost of most of these are more about time than money, some may require investment but they are high return
Non-technology – There are many important talent management technology innovations out there, but that is a separate list
Not dependent on size of company - I tried to include practices that equally apply to large and small companies
Here is the list, it is numbered but that is not indicative of importance or value:
