Lousy leaders use pay checks as permission to control. You feel like you own their time because you paid for it. Technically, you’re right. But, who enjoys being controlled?

In a nutshell - less lecturing and more listening.

John Michel's curator insight, September 22, 2013 8:02 AM

It's a delusion we can change peoples' behaviours. Instead, people change their own behaviours. Our role is to create an enabling environment and provide opportunities for people to become inspired by what their peers have achieved. When we offer people a chance to take a step closer to the lives, businesses or farms they dream about (and we make that change feel safe) then they'll do the changing for us.

3 Warning Signs for Responsible Leaders

3 Warning Signs for Responsible Leaders | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

I’ve come to notice some warning signs in my speech. These are words that help me identify when I’m not being a character-based leader. Whenever I use these words, I’m avoiding a character attribute that is valuable to me. For each one, I try to let them trigger me to change my thoughts and my behavior.

 

The 3 Warning Signs are “but”, “they”, and “need”.

Doris Palomino's curator insight, September 20, 2013 12:45 PM

I found that these recommendations are not exclusive for new leaders but they can apply for any leader. Peoples are wise and they know when you are really honest and they realize how coherent you are. Values come first.

"It’s important to communicate that the commitment to integrity, respect and excellence starts at the top – and even more important to demonstrate that commitment through decisions and actions. Show employees that you are embracing your values, and you’ll go a long way towards building trust".

Don Cloud's comment, September 15, 2013 2:42 PM
Patricia, I like that one too (the one about avoiding back-to-back meetings). It speaks to understanding and prioritizing meetings, as well as extracting yourself from meetings that you don't need to be in. Sounds simple, but if you're in meetings all day, when will you find time to lead? Sometimes, less is more ... this is the case with meetings (fewer and shorter but more productive meetings ... fewer emails but each email is more pertinent ... leaves more time for thinking and leading).
