In my long career I have again and again faced the fact the many leaders forget "why" when communicating with their teams/organization. Remember to articulate and communicate the bigger picture by understanding the ‘why’ as well as ‘what’ and ‘how’. This articles points out 9 other insights on what coaching leaders do.

5 Hidden Emotions of Many Leaders | Catalyst | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

As leaders, we aren’t always honest about how we are feeling. It’s almost as if there’s an unwritten rule that we have to hide our true emotions because…if people knew what we were really feeling…they may not respect us, they may not follow us…and…just being candid…they may not even like us.

Really intersting artcile applying science to what we all inituitively know. Whay is it then that so many businesses and leaders / managers operate in a contrary way. Food for thought.

John Michel's curator insight, March 16, 2013 8:58 PM

The mysteries of the brain are unfolding.  Only a generation ago, we believed that our brains were static and fixed, prone to inevitable atrophy.  Now we are beginning to understand that the brain can rewire itself in remarkable ways. And we are the catalysts!

The not-so-good news is that what often remains – as stagnant and immobile as our brains are not – are the ways we still cling to old ideas about organizational systems that do not maximize human performance.

Should You Be An Empathic Leader? | Joseph Lalonde

Should You Be An Empathic Leader? | Joseph Lalonde | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Empathy has long been regarded as a trait not needed by leaders. We've been told to be strong and firm. Maybe it's time we lead with emotion

 

Why Empathy Is Important In Leadership

Great leaders need to be able to know what their followers are feeling. They need to be able to look around and get a sense of the state of others.

Leaders also need to be able to sense when programs and projects are going well. This can be done through empathy.

When you can begin to relate and feel what others are feeling, you’ll gain a sense of the state of your team. Whether your team is doing well or if they need encouragement.

 

If you’re leading with empathy, these trends will be easier to spot.

Learning is a result of listening, which in turn leads to even better listening and attentiveness to the other person. In other words, to learn from the child, we must have empathy, and empathy grows as we learn.
– Alice Miller

Management Is (Still) Not Leadership

Management Is (Still) Not Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Insight from John Kotter about the difference between leadership and management.

 

The mistakes people make on the issue are threefold:

 

Mistake #1: People use the terms "management" and "leadership" interchangeably. This shows that they don't see the crucial difference between the two and the vital functions that each role plays.

 

Mistake #2: People use the term "leadership" to refer to the people at the very top of hierarchies. They then call the people in the layers below them in the organization "management." And then all the rest are workers, specialists, and individual contributors. This is also a mistake and very misleading.

 

Mistake #3: People often think of "leadership" in terms of personality characteristics, usually as something they call charisma. Since few people have great charisma, this leads logically to the conclusion that few people can provide leadership, which gets us into increasing trouble.

donhornsby's curator insight, January 11, 2013 7:08 AM

(From the article): You might not feel it day-to-day, but business management is in a major transition.  The old days of command-and-control leadership are fading in favor of what might be better termed a trust-and-track method, in which people are not just told what to do, but why they are doing it.  More formally, we're moving from what was called "transactional" leadership to "transformative" leadership. And there's no turning back.

(From the article): The lessons this year brings may give us what we need to accomplish all of our annual goals in a few months, or teach us that the goals we set were not as strong as we thought they were.

 

We need goals that give us the freedom to apply the lessons we learn throughout the year.
