Leading yourself adequately and being aware of your own constraints, culture, worldviews and abilities plus being willing to learn and move forward on the path of “emotional intelligence” will certainly have a major impact on how you will lead others.

John Michel's curator insight, April 25, 7:21 AM

It’s easy to attract like-minded people.  They fuel us and give a sense of belonging.  This after all is a basic human need.  A sense of inclusion is a drive that many share.  If though inclusion is equated with sameness then just like in high school, you have the cool group and then the not so hip.  The liability of the cool group is the risk of absence of diversity.

5 Things You Don’t Really Believe About Leadership

You would think with all our talk about leadership there would be few ideas left to explore. But the truth is, no matter how many posts you write, books you read, or conferences you attend there will always be a separation between what you say you believe and those actions you take to support those beliefs. That’s why we keep reading, keep writing, and keep searching. We need to be reminded. We look for inspiration.

This great post is about Leadership, not Thought Leadership.


I however decided to curate it here because it highlights an important and often underestimated concept: values that contribute to defining a leader, but unseen.


Building thought leadership is about demonstrating, showing, proving - it's very much outbound. Interesting to consider leadership-building actions that are unseen. How to you reconcile the market necessity of being seen, and these behind the scene values?


In any case, I concur: I recognize leadership in people who forgive, don't seek credit and let other have ideas. Although of course, this is far from sufficient...

Great article....thank you for sharing with us!

 

Micromanaging, not involving people with decisions that involve them, and treating people like resources instead of people are certainly top ways to get your team not to like you:)

 

What are other top things bosses do that get their teams to dislike them?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 25, 12:07 PM

Simple leadership is all about people. When we put people i.e. teachers and students first, we find we ask questions about their "whoness" and not "whatness". It is a little Dr. Seuss-like, but people are not disposable and replaceable widgets in a mechanistic ordering. They come as historical and forming beings, not doings.

 

Simple leadership gets the complexity of putting people first.

Stop Trying to Control People or Make Them Happy | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Whether you’ve heard of them or not, two gurus from the early 20th century still dominate management thinking and practice — to our detriment.  It has been more than 100 years since Frederick Taylor, an American engineer working in the steel business, published his seminal work on the principles of scientific management.  And it has been more than 80 years ago since Elton Mayo, an Australian-born Harvard academic, produced his pioneering studies on human relations in the workplace.  Yet managers continue to follow Taylor’s “hard” approach — creating new structures, processes, and systems — when they need to address a management challenge.

If you were successful in the past but have eased out of the game, either abruptly or by slowing down a little bit more every day, ask yourself why. If it's intentional, something you really want for yourself, fine. Enjoy your life and don't look back. But if it's a case of feeling that you have to move out of the way, that you can't run with your younger colleagues, that there's nothing left for you to contribute, then maybe it's time to reevaluate, create a plan, and get back in the pool.
