Teach the Key Ingredients for Leadership Success

Teach the Key Ingredients for Leadership Success | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
There’s a major disconnect between what companies look for in their top performers and best leaders, and what students learn in school. Why don’t we better align these skill sets? For instance, among educators there is lots of talk these days about “grit”: the tenacity to focus on working toward a goal despite obstacles and... Read more »

Tom Hood's curator insight, July 4, 5:54 AM

Having just finished our fifth class of Leadership Academy for our emerging CPA leaders, this article resonated  with me. While the notion of EQ as a critical leadership quality is on point, I think it must be in the context of how leadership is changing in this hyper-connected, rapidly changing world. When we asked our emerging leaders to compare and contrast leadership across the ages, they identified the common traits we all know - vision, communication, passion, and authority. Yet when looking at the current state, they added words like collaborative, transparent, more communication,.

 

These skills include the ability to engage and inspire followers to a shared vision and action. The other critical piece is to 'know themselves' in a way they can be that authentic leader with their own unique style rather than trying to fit some standard leadership model that forces them to change. We do this with Strengths-Finders and Values to help them become self-aware.

 

Thus I see the idea of EQ to include specific group dynamics, collaboration, listening, and making your thinking visible to others. These skills can be taught and developed and we are seeing emerging leaders  able to apply these as they grow into the kind of future leaders we will need.

Robin Martin's curator insight, July 4, 10:51 AM

Absolutely...however, students need to have the "grit'" and tenacity to survive as well as to thrive in this world. Some, if not most, of us Boomers learned this during our lifetimes, most likely the "hard way," so to speak.

 

Just being able to focus in the digital world for younger people (mainly younger children) has to be a challenge in itself! While the digital age is perfect for them to learn as quickly as their brains are moving, somewhere there has to be a delicate "balance" to keep them grounded. 

 

Yes, we do need to align the skill sets needed to survive and become great leaders with what we're teaching young children. I predict an education overhaul in the very near future! 

Marisol Araya Fonseca's curator insight, July 5, 9:28 AM

Bring the real life to the classroom to shorten the gab between the classroom and their future lives outside the classroom.

Mentally strong people know the opposite of defeat is not courage; the opposite of defeat is hope.  And there’s always hope.  When you lose something good, don’t think of it as a loss, but as an experience that gets you back on the path you were meant to travel.  Ultimately, the measure of who you are is what you do with what you have at any given point in time.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 20, 10:39 AM

This is quite a unique article and one I'm going to refer to a lot in my work. The language used to present these ideas is very imaginative -- and they stick in my mind!


But what does it have to do with stories? Mainly this: the author Charles Day's ideas and explanations are top notch. But we are left wondering "How do I executive on these?" The answer includes storytelling.

  1. Conveying gravity happens through sharing stories about why the company exists and why anyone should care.
  2. Maintaining gravity happens when you've got storytelling imbedded in your culture/daily activities.
  3. Tension is experienced through the tension you build into the stories you share.
  4. Applying heat also happens through storytelling. Stories can go viral and ideas can rapidly come into expression.
  5. Speed is about learning more, and what better way to learn quickly than through sharing stories.


OK -- you get the picture. Enjoy this creative re-think about being a creative company and what it takes. Think of story as your go-tool process to realize more creativity in your organization.

(From the article): CEOs themselves should be aware of the narcissistic dimension of their personality and take care to control it when making decisions, by taking into consideration experience of other board members. Whether CEO narcissism can be moderated over time by this self-awareness is yet to be proven.

4 characteristics of Learning Leaders

4 characteristics of Learning Leaders | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Writing is always a learning experience for me. It forces greater clarity. In addition, the tranquility of the unique Australian bush setting in which I am currently sitting, miles from anywhere, provides a perfect environment for learning. I’ve been working on a chapter for our new forthcoming book (from Amazon in September) called ‘A Practical Guide to Self-Determined Learning: Experiences from the Field’.

 

It’s an edited work where lots of people share their experiences of using heutagogy in a variety of contexts. It should be fun and, hopefully, useful to people wanting to try something a bit different in their ‘classrooms’. I got so excited while writing the chapter that I thought I’d share some of its content with you. In this day and age there is no need to be patient, which suits me, as patience is not a strong point. And I might get some comments back to help me refine the chapter before it goes to air.

 

A number of insightful writers have suggested the skills that people need in order to cope with the 21st century. One of my favourites that appears to summarise all of them is from Jackie Gerstein who has put together a neat pictorial of these skills. See also Tony Wanger’s work, which Jackie acknowledges.

 

The skills she has identified are: effective oral and written communication; collaboration across networks; agility and adaptability; grit; resilience; empathy and global stewardship; vision; self-regulation; hope and optimism; curiosity and imagination; initiative and entrepreneurialism; and critical thinking and problem solving.

 

Some of the implications of self-determined learning are:

Advantages include decreased risk of burnout at work, improved mental health, and smarter decision-making, according to recent studies.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 9, 5:13 PM

Why is divergent thinking important in education, and how can we inspire our students to become divergent thinkers? This post explores this idea, beginning with a definition of divergent thinking and providing a look at current research on divergent thinking.

Did you know that divergent thinking "stems from logical, unbiased thinking" or that divergent thinking "leads to positive mood swings while convergent thinking leads to negative mood swings." After this discussion (and there is much more in the post) you will find 30 tips on how to teach your students to become divergent thinkers. A few of the tips are below.

* Fast, frequent failures (with the suggestion that students quickly lay out all possible solutions). Identifying mistakes helps to lead to the students to the correct solution.

* Google - Today students like to Google the answer...but what if you create questions that require deeper thinking, where Google will not supply an answer quickly.
