Empathy: A Gateway to Objectivity in Leadership

Empathy: A Gateway to Objectivity in Leadership | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Most leaders have learned along the way that empathy is a critical leadership skill but few have an understanding of why. Empathy is a form of attention that goes beyond the intellect and involves directly sensing what it is like to be in someone else's shoes. How do we do this?

 

We sense what other people are experiencing or feeling by sensations that arise in our own bodies. All of us are like walking antennas, receiving and registering the felt experience of those around us. Some of us are better at this than others.

Les leçons finissent généralement par toute se recouper.   À force de se les faire présenter de différentes façons, le message fini par passer :-)  Un des messages de base: le leadership ne s'apprend pas dans les livres mais sur le terrain, avec les gens qui nous entourent.  Le leadership est plus du domaine du savoir-être que du savoir...

 

Basically, the messages beyond all those articles written on leadership are about the same: you don't learn leadership in books; you experiment it in real life with real people.  Finally, leadership is more about "beeing" than "knowing" ...

Meta-Collaboration: Thinking With Another

Meta-Collaboration: Thinking With Another | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
The two aspects of being human that set us apart from other mammals are metacognition and the deep desire to belong or feel felt. Our sense of needing to belong to a group is an inherited part of our neurobiology, and collaboration with others is the desired outcome. Metacognition is our brains' miraculous innate ability to self-assess, think about our thinking, and reshape our perspectives.

Feeling the emotions of others, social acceptance, and cooperation are critical to our early development of the identity and industry stages. Author and motivational speaker Daniel Pink states that the future belongs to conceptual cooperative thinkers.

Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader

Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
A new Ketchum leadership study of more than 6,000 respondents in 12 countries reveals people are looking more to employees at all levels for leadership instead of just those at the top of the org chart. According to the fourth-annual Ketchum Leadership Communication Monitor (KLCM), 41 percent of respondents believe leadership should come mainly from the organization and all its employees, compared with 25 percent that believe leadership should come only from the CEO.

This aligns with three years of KLCM data pointing to the demise of the CEO-as-celebrity leadership style and highlights a greater-than-ever opportunity for "leadership by all" – a collaborative and communicative culture that empowers employees at every level.

While the CEO, board and senior management still play an important role, the study suggests that employees throughout an organization can and should provide leadership. The survey identified the top five traits of an effective leader: leading by example (63 percent), communicating in an open and transparent way (61 percent), admitting mistakes (59 percent), bringing out the best in others (58 percent), and handling controversial issues or crises calmly and confidently (58 percent). These are traits that every CEO should possess, and also ones that every good employee would have.

The Future Of Work And Our Social Compact

The Future Of Work And Our Social Compact | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Today’s life path requires us to learn more new things than a traditional education can possibly prepare us for. This is why we often see employee education and development programs appear in organizations to not only build contextual knowledge but also prepare people for changing roles. However, given the average tenure of jobs around 3.5 to 4 years, we should also consider the reality of voluntary and involuntary unemployment. The speed of knowledge becoming outdated and replaced is the other sword of Damocles over the traditional life path.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, June 21, 8:38 AM

We all need to be prepared to move more frequently through being in states of safety, learning and contributing. The implications are significant.


This implies that we should be spreading our education models in between periods of work, rather than lock ourselves in fixed multiyear education programs.


This also implies we shouldn’t simply save for retirement, but for periods of unemployment. We would need healthcare, liability and other insurances that lives with us, rather follow where we are employed. Our basic model of the social compact today would require a significant overhaul to support this alternative life path.

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Life is stressful enough for most of us. Allowing a toxic individual to ravage your immediate environment can cause havoc in your mental well-being, which can lead to physical challenges.

A bad state of mind not only affects your physical well-being but makes it difficult for you to respond calmly under pressure. Ninety percent of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions, so your ability to perform effectively can be affected if you do not adopt strategies that will allow you to deal with toxic people.

Emotional Intelligence is a great skill to possess. It will truly benefit your life and everyone around you. If you are a student, parent, husband, wife, employee, employer; entrepreneur, teacher, preacher. If you are a man woman, or child, EI, can help you release damaging toxins, left by toxic people (and you too) that add undue stress, tension, and pressure; and free yourself, by improving your mental state, which in turn, increases your health and performance.

 

Other benefits include, but are not limited to; lower blood pressure and hyper-tension, blood sugar levels (diabetes), headaches, back and stomach pain. Paranoia, anxiety, and other related symptoms.

 

I am a student and practitioner of EI; and I have grown and benefited from it greatly, and so can you.

Great article on avoiding the quicksand of toxic people. I practice many of these techniques. Boundaries; many you will have to love from a distance and it's ok. Being clear that just because people have the right to say what they want doesn't make it true about you; keep it moving. There will be positive & negative people. You get to choose who you will lend your energy to.

Bosses produce demoralized employees through a string of actions: walking away from a conversation because they lose interest; answering calls in the middle of meetings without leaving the room; openly mocking people by pointing out their flaws or personality quirks in front of others; reminding their subordinates of their “role” in the organization and “title”; taking credit for wins, but pointing the finger at others when problems arise. Employees who are harmed by this behavior, instead of sharing ideas or asking for help, hold back.
