Cruise Line Class's curator insight, September 18, 2013 8:12 AM

Being our best in any role requires constant learning, growing, and hard work. 

 

We have to light our flame every day before we can inspire our teams. 

 

If you want to expand your team's limits, ask this question:  What is currently impossible for us today; however, if we accomplished would be a game-changer?

 

When you and your teams start looking at things as though nothing was impossible, that is when you stop following best practices -- and start making new best practices.

The one characteristic great leaders share is that “they love to see people grow.” They have the "generosity gene." “The day you are afraid of them being better than you is the day you fail as a leader.”

Patricia, I like that one too (the one about avoiding back-to-back meetings). It speaks to understanding and prioritizing meetings, as well as extracting yourself from meetings that you don't need to be in. Sounds simple, but if you're in meetings all day, when will you find time to lead? Sometimes, less is more ... this is the case with meetings (fewer and shorter but more productive meetings ... fewer emails but each email is more pertinent ... leaves more time for thinking and leading).

Excellent post!

 

From the article:

 

A good leader cannot allow themselves to get sucked into the mindset of thinking that the talents of one employee are more important than the morale of many employees. As painful as losing a talented person can be, it is more painful to impact the entire culture of a company by supporting an “all about me attitude” of a single employee.

 

It is critical that leaders send a clear message that everyone matters equally to the organization, regardless of their title or position.

Words can build a relationship or tear them apart.

 

We need to think before we speak, and ask ourselves:

 

1.  What is my goal & what do I want to achieve?

2.  How do I want to be perceived?

3.  Who is my audience, and will my words build the relationship or tear it apart?

Rescooping ... powerful insights about the millenial generation's perspective of leadership.

 

Some insight I would offer (feel free to disagree) ... I wholeheartedly disagree with any/all negative connotations about millenials -- period.  My own personal experience is that they are motivated, talented, and hungry to make an impact -- there's a lot of potential energy and talent just waiting to be unleashed.  Their expectations of their leaders and of themselves are very high, and they are looking to being challenged -- isn't this the way it's supposed to be?

 

Leaders -- it's time to "giddy up" if you want to be a relevant leader in the 21st century.  Millenials are eager to step up.  It's your choice as a leader to either step up to the challenge of leading millenials, or step aside.

Cruise Line Class's comment, September 17, 2013 8:52 PM
I agree completely with you Don! Gen Y want to contribute, they want to be creative, they want to be heard, and are eager to grow their skills. Leaders who learn how to effectively communicate and energize will tap into their wonderful talents! As leaders we can't expect them to plan on staying with one employer for life. They don't want to wait years to grow their career.

The smart leaders understand the concept of following from the front, that is, removing obstacles from the paths of employees to help them become successful.  Scaring your employees into doing what you want is a failed approach to leadership yet unfortunately this is how many of our companies were created; it’s time to evolve this way of leading.
