Great teams have developed great norms.  Bringingthe best from each other is one.  Thisis a great way to do that...

donhornsby's curator insight, March 27, 2013 5:09 AM

(From the article): Leadership isn't about being comfortable; it's about being effective, even when you're uncomfortable. Smart leaders address ineffective team member behavior in the team setting when it occurs, or when the behavior affects the team. In the team: that's where the information, solution, and accountability are.

Workplace kindness improves engagement and productivity

Kudos's curator insight, July 13, 10:02 AM
A fascinating study that shows how beneficial small acts of kindness are beneficial for all. This should be the main focus of employee engagement programs. Encourage a culture of appreciation and empower people to live that value. It is contagious and can ripple through an entire organization leading to enhanced morale, productivity, innovation and customer service. Everyone wins.

Leadership Development: The Path To Becoming Our Highest Self

Leadership Development: The Path To Becoming Our Highest Self | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

We call ourselves “human beings,” but I think that title is aspirational: one we are meant to earn. Being human should mean we are capable of higher-level thought and can choose rationally how we respond to external events as well as to internal thoughts and emotions. Now, I don’t know about you, but all I need is to be cut off in traffic or have my husband use the wrong tone of voice to witness my own inability to do this well.

 

Perhaps the most surprising element in business today is that we often behave in ways that are extremely ineffective and quite beneath us. Even those among us who are highly educated senior-level professionals fall into these traps.

Mindfulness practice leads to increases in regional brain gray matter density | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Therapeutic interventions that incorporate training in mindfulness meditation have
become increasingly popular, but to date little is known about neural mechanisms associated
with these interventions. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), one of the most
widely used mindfulness training programs, has been reported to produce positive effects
on psychological well-being and to ameliorate symptoms of a number of disorders. Here,
we report a controlled longitudinal study to investigate pre–post changes in brain
gray matter concentration attributable to participation in an MBSR program.

Why Is It So Hard to Change People’s Minds?

Why Is It So Hard to Change People’s Minds? | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
It’s probably happened more than once: You spend a lot of time trying to convince someone that their opinion on a particular issue is wrong. You take pains to make sure your argument is air-tight. But instead of coming around to your point of view, your conversation partner pushes back, still convinced of her ultimate rightness. “What do you mean poor people need social programs? They have the same opportunities as everyone else!” By the end of your debate, you’re faced with the same stalemate you had at the beginning—and your relationship may be feeling the strain.

Lot's of excellent insights. The great paradox of self-awareness (the number one leadership skill in my view) is that we need other people to make sure our awareness is real.

5 Keys To Authentic Leadership

5 Keys To Authentic Leadership | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
But author Jeff Davis discusses in his new book, The Power of Authentic Leadership: Activating the 13 Keys to Achieving Prosperity Through Authenticity, that authentic leadership prowess is a cornerstone trait needed for success not just at work, but in life as well. Through conversations with Senators, billionaires, New York Times bestselling authors, and extremely successful business owners, coupled with his own research and application, Davis believes that authentic leadership is the essential ingredient for prosperity.

Hardly theoretical, authentic leadership is something that can be used and applied on a day-to-day basis, and it is needed now more than ever. In a nutshell, it’s more about being true to your word and demonstrating by example than it is about getting people to follow you or telling others what to do.

Scaling Up Emotional Intelligence to Inspire the Crowd

Scaling Up Emotional Intelligence to Inspire the Crowd | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

While it’s bad to ignore a crisis, the more serious problems for today’s leaders arise when they try to rouse collective will to address or prevent organisational emergencies. Heads nod around conference tables as well laid out rationales and action plans for strategic change are presented. Months later, however, the promised results fail to arrive. Somewhere, somehow, a silent disconnect has intervened between those who see the big vision and those tasked with executing it, as if both groups hadn’t been on the same page all along, or even on the same team.

How to Tap the Full Potential of Your Executive Team

How to Tap the Full Potential of Your Executive Team | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Executive teams play 2 critical roles in an organization.

The first is obvious; they provide strategic and operational leadership to the company. They set goals, develop strategy, and ensure the strategy is executed effectively.

The second is less obvious, but just as important; the executive team provides the organizational and cultural DNA for the company. How well the executive team functions as a collective leadership body and how its members interact serves as the model that teams throughout the company will follow.
