While I've achieved a lot of success as an entrepreneur and business owner, I was not born a great leader. Rather, I've learned leadership skills and every day, I put them to use.

Great leadership comes from a desire to inspire the best out of everyone you encounter. What if I told you that you are a mere 90 days away from being a great leader? Would you think it was possible?

15 Leadership Books Every Future Leader Should Read (or anyone actually) | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Many times I've had people ask me, "In addition to coaching and training, what else can I do to learn more about how to improve myself? How can I learn to be a great leader that propels myself and others towards greater growth and greater opportunities?"

Collaboration: "Too many collaborative experiences have been manipulated by the man behind the curtain."

Collaboration: "Too many collaborative experiences have been manipulated by the man behind the curtain." | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Too many collaborative experiences have been manipulated by the man behind the curtain.

I've written a few books on collaboration, and I was surprised to find that in many cases it doesn't work. Kuhn (2015) found that, "More productive collaborations have been identified as those in which participants directly engage one another's thinking. They listen and respond to what their peers say." 

Unfortunately, too many collaborative moments are spent in the land of nice where people don't challenge each other's thinking. Or worse, they're not supposed to engage as much as they're supposed to be compliant. Kuhn found that "In less successful collaborations, participants are more likely to work in parallel and ignore or dismiss the other person's contributions." 

That doesn't sound very collaborative.

It happens to our students too. U.K. researcher Rob Coe found that around 80% of the time students are in collaborative settings, like partnership or group work, they are actually doing individual work 75-80% of that time. We're better at collaborative seating than we are at collaborative learning.

This Is The Mind-Set You’ll Need In Order To Thrive In The Future Of Work

This Is The Mind-Set You’ll Need In Order To Thrive In The Future Of Work | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
To stay competitive, we need to get comfortable making difficult, complicated, higher-order decisions more regularly—until we’ve achieved what Harvard psychologist Robert Kegan refers to as “immunity to change.”

Sound daunting? Hopeless, even? Don’t fret. It isn’t about turning yourself into a superhuman or somehow making yourself “smarter.” It simply means tapping into the potential that your mind is already hardwired to possess. Here’s how.

Do Mindful People Have a Stronger Sense of Self?

Researchers at the University of Utah recruited over 1,000 undergraduate students, ranging in age from 18 to 53, to complete questionnaires about three traits:
Mindfulness: Their tendency to be aware of their thoughts and feelings and to respond to them in deliberate, non-reactive, non-judgmental ways.
Self-concept clarity: How stable, clear, and unconflicted their views of themselves are.
Well-being: How much they feel a sense of self-acceptance, autonomy, and control over their environment; the quality of their relationships; and their experience of personal growth and purpose in life.
The results showed that more mindful students reported higher well-being—and that a stronger sense of self partly accounted for that link.
Delving deeper into the data, the researchers found that some aspects of mindfulness were more crucial than others. Students who were more non-judgmental about their thoughts and feelings tended to report a particularly clear sense of self; on the other hand, those who were better at observing the present actually had slightly lower self-concept clarity.

How People Learn to Become Resilient

How People Learn to Become Resilient | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Perception is key to resilience: Do you conceptualize an event as traumatic, or as a chance to learn and grow?

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 6, 2:43 AM

Resilience presents a challenge for psychologists. Whether you can be said to have it or not largely depends not on any particular psychological test but on the way your life unfolds. If you are lucky enough to never experience any sort of adversity, we won’t know how resilient you are. It’s only when you’re faced with obstacles, stress, and other environmental threats that resilience, or the lack of it, emerges: Do you succumb or do you surmount?

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.

The leadership manifesto: developing leaders at all levels

The leadership manifesto: developing leaders at all levels | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Thee concept and nature of leadership has probably never been more debated than it is now. Last year saw Theresa May take over as PM in the UK after David Cameron stepped down, while the US elected a new President  - where his opponent criticised him for having no prior political experience.
 
The debate around leadership looks set to continue. Trump’s inauguration dominates headlines, Northern Ireland’s deputy first minister has resigned, meaning an assembly election is inevitable, and the French Presidential elections are set for May.

These political upheavals have repercussions across the world of business. Redrawing the next 12 months and beyond will present uncertain and potentially challenging times, but businesses who are themselves able to ensure they have trustworthy, capable and confident leaders in place will be able to navigate this uncertainty and even thrive.

Your Ability to Focus Has Probably Peaked: Here’s How to Stay Sharp

Your Ability to Focus Has Probably Peaked: Here’s How to Stay Sharp | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Having a hard time focusing lately? You’re not alone. Research shows interruptions occur about every twelve minutes in the workplace, and every three minutes in university settings. In an age of constant digital interruptions, it is no wonder you’re having trouble ignoring distractions.
In their new book, The Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High-Tech World, Dr. Adam Gazzaley, a neuroscientist, and Dr. Larry Rosen, a psychologist, explain how our ability to pay attention works and what we can do to stay focused.
It turns out, attention isn’t as simple as it seems. In fact, paying attention involves two separate functions: “enhancement” (our ability to focus on things that matter) and “suppression” (our ability to ignore the things that don’t). Interestingly, enhancement and suppression are not opposites, they are distinct processes in the brain.
