Leaders Eat Last

Leaders Eat Last | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Being a true leader, says Simon Sinek, author of Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’'t (Penguin), isn’t about being in charge, having all the answers or being the most qualified person in the room. Instead, it’s about creating a “circle of safety,” a culture that leads people to feel protected and free from danger inside the organization.

The One Essential Trait Leaders Fail To Master

The One Essential Trait Leaders Fail To Master | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

For Howard Schultz of Starbucks, it’s an essential trait for any leader. Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook was praised for showing it as a sign of strength. Countless articles and blogs, including this one, have reminded leaders to demonstrate it – and that those who fail to show it are struggling to be transparent, admit mistakes, and grow their businesses.

Your Organization Wastes Time. Here’s How to Fix It. | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Companies wind up in trouble and squander the time, talent, and energy of their workforce when they lose focus, spend money on things that don’t make a difference to employees or the future of the business, and use operating models that are out of whack.

By attacking the root causes of organizational drag, companies can eliminate unnecessary work, reenergize the workforce and, at the same time, put the business on a better course. They can do this by following the three R’s:

Understand leadership is not about you. It’s about others. The leader may hold power and authority, but those things come with obligations. Leadership is ultimately an act of service. It’s impossible to treat it otherwise and achieve greatness. With great power comes great responsibility—not only to yourself but also to those you lead. As a leader, you must always be willing to show accountability and to respect and serve others. The true source of power is not titles or bank accounts but service and responsibility.

To be a leader does not mean wearing the title of "leader." It's not something you choose to be one minute and then choose not to be the next. A leader is not a leader simply because he or she has been promoted. And a leader is not someone who sits in a position of management.

4 Underlying Processes to Motivate Your Team

4 Underlying Processes to Motivate Your Team | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

The first thing that must be understood is that motivation is an art, rather than a science. There is no magic formula that can be waved over an employee or team that will magically transform them into motivated, driven and hard working superstars. Rather a motivation strategy must be curated, like a fine dining experience, with each interaction complimenting the last, building to a crescendo and leaving a profound and sustaining impression. It, unlike incentives, cannot be turned on and off like a faucet – but has to flow constantly, building cumulatively and being ever present.

Job Satisfaction Hits All Time High. Here's Why

Job Satisfaction Hits All Time High. Here's Why | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

88 percent of employees who participated in the 2016 SHRM Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement Survey, indicated that they were satisfied with their current job. This marks the highest level of satisfaction over the past ten years.


Although there are many reasons that contributed to this statistic, "respectful treatment of employees at all levels" was at the top of the list for the second year in a row. It even beat out major players like pay, benefits and job security. (Did anyone else start singing a little Aretha Franklin?)

Why integrity is the foundation of a peak performance leader | SmartBrief | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
When you hear the word “integrity,” what comes to mind? Most people think integrity is a moral issue. Integrity is not a moral matter. It is not about right and wrong. "Having integrity" is about honoring your word as your life. When a person of integrity gives their word or makes a commitment, they follow through, with no exceptions. When integrity is present, it is one of the most powerful characteristics in any person or organization; however, when absent, one of the most damaging.
