Partiendo de la base que el verbo es "to lead", el título y la introducción pueden resultar un tanto "peculiares", ahora bien, dejando a parte esa matización, 100% de acuerdo con las acciones que un líder debería de llevar a cabo, para pasar del concepto (teórico) a la práctica del liderazgo:

The Leader's Harvest - General Leadership

The Leader's Harvest - General Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
I challenge you to ask yourself the following questions about your leadership: “What type of seeds am I planting as a leader?” I am very interested in hearing how you are seeding leadership potential within your team, your family and your community. Are you happy with your harvest…or are you facing a famine? Visit GeneralLeadership.com to learn more!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 19, 2014 12:36 PM

Mindfulness is about planting seeds. Mindlessness is also about planting seeds. Leaders and teachers should consider what seeds they want to plant. Are they seeds that lead to bounty? Or are they seeds that lead to famine.

 

Schools are often the latter where dictating is the norm and teachers struggle with the seeds which result in famine.

The coercive leadership style has its place in crisis and turnaround situations, when all is in chaos and the sitiation needs a «savior». In other situations than that, a coercive leadership style is not only completely useless, it will eventually create a real crisis...for which SOMEONE ELSE will be hired to bump you out as a first step to solve the crisis you have yourself created.

The Foundation of Collaborative Leadership

The Foundation of Collaborative Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

In an industrial age, people went to factories and worked together to produce the outcomes. When required, they collaborated in person. Supervisors commanded and controlled others and leadership was often equated with “taking power”. Factories depended heavily on rigid top-down hierarchies and people were viewed simply as dispensable workers.

Better Management Could Spur a New Era of Economic Growth | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

What if managers changed their approaches and got that set of rules right? Could they unlock all the energy being held in check?  Could we collectively innovate in the practice of management so much that we ushered in a new era of growth – something we might call the Great Transformation?

Build Your Own All-Star Team

Build Your Own All-Star Team | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Let’s imagine that you have recently assessed your company’s talent, and that you found plenty of high-performing executives and employees. Yet somehow your company’s overall performance isn’t where it should be — all those “A” players just aren’t getting the job done. Why?

 

The fact is, it isn’t enough just to hire the best. If you want to boost the productivity of your organization’s human capital, you also have to deploy those high performers effectively — put them to work so they can deliver the results they’re capable of. One of the most effective methods of deployment I’ve seen is to create all-star teams. Teams like these are a kind of force multiplier: if you group (say) three individuals from your list of A players into a team, you’ll typically get more than three times the output.

(From the article): Build a small bet culture. Want to succeed? Often, companies are advised to double down, bet big, and try to become the next Apple. But Zolli says, alluding to a concept popularized by Peter Sims’ book Little Bets, it’s far wiser to have a “small bet” culture. “Many wins are not on homeruns like the iPod,” he says. “Instead, companies win on singles, and incrementally improving.”

Our responsibility is to facilitate a culture for others to engage, solve, interact, and act. Whether tested or inspiring, leaders need to deliver on these elements at a minimum.
