Lead With Your Heart, Not Just Your Head

Lead With Your Heart, Not Just Your Head | Business Leadership Excellence | Scoop.it

Have you noticed that in dangerous jobs, good bosses tend to have deep bonds with their workers? Whether it's a captain and crew on a crab fishing boat in the Bering Sea, a platoon commander and his troops in Afghanistan, or a tree-cutting foreman and his team in the forest — people in dangerous working conditions sense they need to trust each other and their boss to survive.

As a manager, you may not be working on a fishing boat or in armed combat. But you need to motivate your people to get things done. Do you have that kind of bond? Or have you been taught to manage by objectives and metrics to monitor performance, and that bonding with your team members will be seen as a distraction at best or weakness at worst? Many have. Perhaps that's why a recent survey found that more workers would trust a total stranger more than their own boss.

What The Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast

What The Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast | Business Leadership Excellence | Scoop.it

Mornings are a great time for getting things done. You’re less likely to be interrupted than you are later in the day. Your supply of willpower is fresh after a good night’s sleep. That makes it possible to turn personal priorities like exercise or strategic thinking into reality.

But if you’ve got big goals--and a chaotic a.m. schedule--how can you make over your mornings to make these goals happen?

Because I write about time management frequently, I’ve gotten to see hundreds of calendars and schedules over the years. From studying people’s morning habits, I’ve learned that getting the most out of this time is a five-part process. Follow these steps, though, and you’re on your way to building morning habits that stick.

5 Questions with Amy Lyman, author of “The Trustworthy Leader”

5 Questions with Amy Lyman, author of “The Trustworthy Leader” | Business Leadership Excellence | Scoop.it

Since cofounding the Great Place to Work ® Institute in 1991, Amy Lyman has devoted her career to that very question. In the hundreds of thousands of survey responses the Institute analyzes each year, employees who love where they work point to trust as the key factor driving their commitment to contribute to their organization’s success.

Employees in great companies not only trust their leaders, they also value the trust their leaders bestow on them. In The Trustworthy Leader, Lyman draws on these 20 years of research and on extensive interviews to show how leaders actually build and maintain this foundation of trust in their workplaces.
