Do you express a positive attitude toward the objective or goal to be accomplished? 

(From the article): Sometimes the only time that a person may hear from their manager is when they haven’t performed as expected. This leaves people thinking that the only time anyone cares what they do is when they make a mistake. Rather than allowing people to constantly guess whether or not they are performing as expected, you should take every opportunity to express heartfelt appreciation for the efforts of others whether the task be small or large. You also want to encourage others to express appreciation to members of the team. Cultivating a culture of appreciation will increase both morale and productivity.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 18, 2016 8:55 AM
(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, PhD's curator insight, April 18, 2016 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.

Why Employees Don't Trust Their Leadership

Why Employees Don't Trust Their Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Of 33,000 workers globally, one in three said they don't trust their employer. What gives?

Via donhornsby

donhornsby's curator insight, April 7, 2016 10:37 AM
(From the article): One in three people don’t trust their employer. That’s according to the new Edelman "Trust Barometer", a survey of 33,000 people in 28 countries about trust in the workplace.

 Among the other notable findings, trust decreases down an organization’s hierarchy: 64% of executives, 51% of managers, and 48% of rank and file staff say they trust their organizations, and employees say they trust peers more than CEOs when it comes to company information. Right now, many workers have their choice of jobs that boast high earnings and a range of career opportunities. To stay competitive in the war for talent, most employers are offering a full complement of benefits and perks as well as beefing up their efforts to engage workers through inclusion initiatives. Indeed, many employees among the Top 100 Great Places To Work reported being satisfied with their jobs, but also having a high level of trust for their companies.

 That’s obviously not the case everywhere, according to the Edelman Trust Barometer. The survey revealed gaps between factors that employees rate as important for building trust and how their leaders rated based on those attributes.
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 7, 2016 11:21 PM
When we conflate management and leadership, treating them as the same thing, we make the mistake of missing what leading is. It cannot be defined, but, when we see it, we recognize it.
