Taking centre stage: What incoming CEOs can learn from actors

Taking centre stage: What incoming CEOs can learn from actors | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

As in theatre, the audience makes up its mind within the first few minutes of a new lead character making their first appearance. The initial decisions of a new CEO and the way they communicate them can set the tone for the rest of their tenure, with people deciding instantly if they immediately believe and therefore support the new direction.


Indeed, on some occasions, the introduction of a new CEO can be a disconcerting plot twist, changing the storyline of a business irrevocably and forcing employees, shareholders and customers to re-evaluate their relationship with a company.

Interesting comparison.  In theatre, it is important to adjust based on the audience response.  So too as a leader we must understand our role and how it impacts the whole picture then be perceptive to the audience and adjust to assure success.

10 Habits of Ultra-Likeable Leaders

10 Habits of Ultra-Likeable Leaders | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
If you want to be a leader whom people follow with absolute conviction, you have to be a likeable leader. Tyrants and curmudgeons with brilliant vision can command a reluctant following for a time, but it never lasts. They burn people out before they ever get to see what anyone is truly capable of.When I speak to smaller audiences, I often ask them to describe the best and worst leaders they have ever worked for. People inevitably ignore innate characteristics (intelligence, extraversion, attrac

    "Whatever one chooses as a life work, one should have a passion for it and a sense of company and community impact, and possibly global impact.  A person who has a vision for his or her life is able to make things happen.  Strong leaders are also caring and very charismatic.  They know how to connect with people.  They are able to find common ground and improve their relationships.

   Ms. Morgan gives insights  to help you make your leadership more focused and empowering.  But it has to first start with an inward look at yourself and your values.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this article, and I did take a sneak peak at her Leadership Discovery Tool.  Thank you Ms. Morgan, Nozami

for writing this article."

(From the article): How many times have you seen someone go to a leadership training, come back all fired up, and then go right back to their old habits a few days later? Pick one or two leadership behaviors you want to improve, and practice them consistently every day. This could be something as simple as “I’m going to ask more strategic questions to get my team thinking.” Or, “I’m going to wait until others have had a chance to speak in meetings until I chime in.”

This Leadership Paradox Has Us Pecking at Each Other | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
In her recent TED Talk, Margaret Heffernan, an entrepreneur, former CEO of five companies and author, discussed an experiment on productivity by evolutionary biologist William Muir at Purdue University.  Muir was interested in productivity and leverages experiments with chickens for one simple reason — their productivity is easy to measure because you can just count the eggs. He wanted to know what factors can make chickens more productive, so he devised a beautiful experiment.
