donhornsby's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:42 AM

(From the article): The foundation of leading teams is trust. To that extent leaders of leading teams are authentic and real, no masks, no politics. They connect personally with the team members and create opportunities for them to get to know each other informally also. Creating common shared experiences and fostering collaboration continues to build the level of trust in the team.

 

Accountability and reliability solidifies the trust. No double standards. The leader must be a shining example of that. They must always keep their promises and do what they say they are going to do. People are much more likely to bring their best to work when they trust their leader.

Are Leaders Born or Made? Here’s What’s Coachable — and What’s Definitely Not.

Are Leaders Born or Made? Here’s What’s Coachable — and What’s Definitely Not. | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
For some people, the question of whether leaders are born or made is truly intellectual – fodder for a good classroom or dinner party debate. But for people in front-line positions to hire, promote, and fire, the question, “Who has the right stuff to lead?” definitely has more urgency. Getting the answer right can drive an organization’s culture and performance to new levels. Getting it wrong can too — downwards.

So what’s the answer? Of course, since we’re talking about real life here, it isn’t neat or simple. The facts are, some leadership traits are inborn, and they’re big whoppers. They matter a lot. On the other hand, two key leadership traits can be developed with training and experience – in fact, they need to be.

More Important than Knowing When to Lead is Knowing When to Follow

More Important than Knowing When to Lead is Knowing When to Follow | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Leadership is not a title or position; it’s power, but not power in the sense that we usually think about power. It is the power to inspire others to do more than they ever thought possible in the best interest of the greater good. On the flipside, anyone can become a follower regardless of the position that they hold. So, why would you ever want to follow if you can lead? The most effective leaders understand that they do not know everything, neither are they always the ones with the greatest influence. Being a great leader requires knowing when to lead and when to follow. Here are four questions to ask yourself to determine whether you should be leading or following.

How often have you heard somebody — a new CEO, a journalist, a management consultant, a leadership guru, a fellow employee — talk about the urgent need to change the culture? They want to make it world-class. To dispense with all the nonsense and negativity that annoys employees and stops good intentions from growing into progress. To bring about an entirely different approach, starting immediately.

(From the article): Real leadership also means making hard choices, overcoming difficult challenges, and encouraging constituents to embrace change. Real leaders are not afraid to take a firm stance and accept responsibility for their decisions. In so doing, decisions are never made to win a popularity contest or to placate everyone by being all things to all people. Precious resources are allocated in areas where they provide the greatest good while carefully balancing short-term performance with long-term success. And, while you may not always agree with a real leader’s decision, you’ll always know that every decision was made in an honest, fair, and objective fashion. You’ll never have to second-guess a real leader’s intent; you’ll know what he or she stands for.
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 18, 9:38 AM
When we focus on accountability, leadership is no longer leadership. Leadership is about accepting responsibility. Yes, there are external structures that hold us to account, but how we repond (same root as reponsible) is how we experience being a leader. The other thing we do is conflate leadership and management. They are different and play partcular roles in  leading.

In a business context, values such as diversity, trust and respect can often have people rolling their eyes and delivering sarcastic renditions of Kumbaya; and with all the jargon and pontificating who can blame them?

But let’s hold the sarcasm for a moment and consider this: Google is one of the most successful businesses in modern history. It attracts some of the most brilliant minds in the world and is pioneering some of the most important innovations of our time. And the number one thing underpinning the most successful teams at Google, as identified by Google itself, is something many senior executives have never heard of: “psychological safety”.
