To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Teddy Roosevelt did it. Harry Truman did it. Want to be an outstanding leader? Keep a leadership journal. As part of my executive coaching work, one of the most effective tools I recommend that powers up the coaching process is a leadership journal.  The exercise of leadership is not unlike a sport you play. When you review your actions in the field you learn what worked, what didn’t, and adjust along the way. Leadership guru Peter Drucker said: “ Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. ”

Pensez-vous que vous faites le type d'argent que vous méritez? Êtes-vous fatigué de travailler pour autre chose? Voulez-vous prendre une pause? Vous voyez, la crise mondiale est loin d'être terminée. Emplois de nos jours ne sont plus en sécurité. Et la plupart des emplois juste assez payer pour survivre.

I think this is an underused tool in many professions. Moreover, we do not journal about what we experience and how we feel about those experiences. We want to shape the world without reshaping ourselves.

The Only Three Networking Emails You Need To Know How To Write

The Only Three Networking Emails You Need To Know How To Write | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

It’s helpful to be honest about why you’re reaching out (for example, you’re going through a job search or moving to a new city). It can combat nerves and help the process feel more genuine. In other words, it instantly solves two core issues many people stress about when told to network.

 

That said, as with anything else, you know there’s a difference between being straightforward and being overly blunt. For example, you know to write, "I was thinking of approaching the project from a different angle" over "I hate all of your ideas."

 

Aspiring to find this balance, many people begin networking emails with "Remember me?" or even, "You probably don’t remember me..." After all, why not begin with an honest admission so the other person knows you aren’t being fake? Well, unfortunately, this approach often backfires. While you’re coming from a sincere place, it’s pretty audacious to ask for something from someone whom you’re blatantly admitting you barely know.

I think this title should be about reaching out to contacts.

As the article implies networking can be scary, and might scare away readers but a good article overall.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, December 5, 2016 9:43 PM
It certainly helps to be upfront, honest and straightforward in writing Networking Emails. We have come a long way from times when it was perhaps expected that letters should run into pages, filled with flowery expression and long sentences. I found the examples in the article really helpful, and am sharing the same for others to read!

4 Reasons Great Leaders Don't Need to Criticize

4 Reasons Great Leaders Don't Need to Criticize | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

I have a fundamental belief about the kind of people I try to employ. And that's that they're going to be harder on themselves than I'll ever need to be. I also believe that the concept of constructive criticism is overrated, if not an outright fallacy. Your employees are either aware of problems with their performance, or they're not.

 

The best way to find out which category they're in is through asking questions and listening. Let's look at some of the reasons this passive approach to problem-solving is good for both of you.

Leadership Is About Emotion

Leadership Is About Emotion | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Make a list of the 5 leaders you most admire. They can be from business, social media, politics, technology, the sciences, any field. Now ask yourself why you admire them. The chances are high that your admiration is based on more than their accomplishments, impressive as those may be. I’ll bet that everyone on your list reaches you on an emotional level.

 

This ability to reach people in a way that transcends the intellectual and rational is the mark of a great leader. They all have it. They inspire us. It’s a simple as that. And when we’re inspired we tap into our best selves and deliver amazing work.

 

So, can this ability to touch and inspire people be learned? No and yes. The truth is that not everyone can lead, and there is no substitute for natural talent. Honestly, I’m more convinced of this now – I’m in reality about the world of work and employee engagement. But for those who fall somewhat short of being a natural born star (which is pretty much MANY of us), leadership skills can be acquired, honed and perfected. And when this happens your chances of engaging your talent increases from the time they walk into your culture.

Here is a very quick article listing the 6 C's needed for storytelling success. I like this post because it's not a laundry list of elements to include a story. Instead it's about the 6 C's of story practice -- like Commitment. Or Clarity.

 

Sure, you need to know how to craft a story. But underneath the crafting, these principles are at work. Combined with a well-crafted story, you will experience greater success.

 

Written from a marketing perspective, these principles are the same for leadership and influence.

 

So grab this list, take action on these practices, and story on!

12 things successful people do in the last 10 minutes of the workday

12 things successful people do in the last 10 minutes of the workday | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Perhaps you spend the last 10 minutes of your workday staring at the clock, counting down the seconds until you’re free. Or, maybe you bury yourself in your work until the very last minute — then you grab your stuff and go without saying goodbye to your colleagues.

 

If either of the above scenarios sounds familiar, it may be time to reassess your end-of-day routine. “How you finish the workday is very important,” says Michael Kerr, an international business speaker and author of “The Humour Advantage.” “It can set your mood for the rest of your day; it may impact your personal relationships, overall level of happiness, and how well you sleep that night; and it will set the stage for the next day.”

Being able to listen with focus and empathy is key, whereby those in our care feel supported and heard. In a world where everyone is so busy and time often seems to be the commodity that we have the least of, this diagram really serves to remind us that we need to listen constructively, suggest skilfully and try to understand the emotion of those we are engaging with in all that we do. Purposeful listening rather than just hearing is key.

How to Give an Emotionally Intelligent Presentation

How to Give an Emotionally Intelligent Presentation | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Emotions play an active role in almost all of our decision making. That's one reason why emotional intelligence, the ability to identify, understand, and manage those emotions, is such an invaluable skill. 

 

But how specifically does emotional intelligence help us with our daily tasks? Here are three tips to make sure your next presentation is emotionally intelligent:

 

1. Don't get anxious. Get excited.

All of us get nervous before a presentation, even if we've done it hundreds of times. So take that nervousness and turn it into something positive: enthusiasm.How do you do that exactly?

Spend those final few moments reviewing your favorite parts of the presentation. Remind yourself why you're doing this, and focus on the value you have to deliver to your listeners.

Now, take that enthusiasm and give a talk that you passionately believe in.
