Leadership is fluid and is never outdated. What I am not seeing is the shift from management to leadership. It certainly is not happening where I work and live. The trust question and answer is revealing. He does not use the word narcissism, but it is in evidence and growing. What will that do for the next generation?

 

Tom Hood's comment, February 10, 2013 8:05 AM
Love the curator insights (Amy & donhornsby) "I think this is the greatest sentence ever written on leadership: “The task of a leader is not to put greatness into people, but to draw it out, because the greatness is there already.” That’s what a true leader thinks. We have a responsibility to the world to play a leading part in growing and developing good leaders and leaders for good." and (From the article): Half the world’s population is 25 years or under, so we have an immense job of sowing the seeds for the next generation of leaders.-

Tom Hood's curator insight, February 10, 2013 8:16 AM

In our five years working with the CPA Profession's best and brightest young leaders (AICPA, MACPA, UACPA, LSCPA Leadership Academies), I worry that many of our current leaders are not taking the responsibility to develop new leaders fast enough. Yet when you get these young leaders in a room, it is easy to pull their greatness out of them.


What can we do to develop more leaders fast enough as two baby boomers will retire for every Gen-Xer available to replace them?


Love the curator insights:

Leadership and Your Social Media Voice

Leadership and Your Social Media Voice | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

On Tuesday, I presented a session entitled “Leadership and Your Social Media Voice” at the North American Jewish Day School Conference. Based on the conference theme of ”Leading to Learn, Learning to Lead,” I offered the session as a conversation-starter for educators who are thinking about or currently using social media personally on behalf of their organizations. The session and presentation addressed the following thematic questions: Why should educational staff use social media personally yet professionally, how could organizational leaders translate their leadership offline to online, and is it possible to have a “playbook” of sorts with which to design one’s professional online presence and voice?

The session focused on three elements: translating leadership vision online, defining leadership voice, and the intersection of transparency with leadership.

I want you to think about how drama can help you with real life siuations. Where and how could you use imprevisation skills? Can you recall a time, When you have used your drama skills, to get what you wanted?

Renae Phillips's curator insight, May 7, 2013 8:08 PM

They say Drama is just acting and has nothing to do with the real world, but i disagree strongly.  When have you been in a situation in the real world where you had to think fast on your feet and improvise?  Where have you used what you learnt in drama to help you get what you want in life? Drama is all about action reaction and plays a strong role in your everyday life.

(From the article): Personal leadership is all about relationships with those you lead. Simply learning the names of one’s team-members is not sufficient to building a strong team of committed workers, although it s start.  By learning their values, skills and dreams, you learn how they see themselves within the organizational structure.  Instead of simply evaluating their work, seek opportunities for them to provide feedback on the organization.  Take care to listen, and see if you can incorporate their ideas.

Teamwork is a frustrating as it is rewarding.  Here are a few insights about how to make the most out of collaboration.  

Rachelle Wooten's curator insight, February 5, 2013 10:07 AM

My favorite quote: "Conflict, when well managed and focused on a team's objectives, can generate more creative solutions than one sees in conflict-free groups."  All too often conflict is avoided maybe because it is poorly managed but if it's focused on team's goal or mission can be most beneficial.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 14, 2013 8:26 AM

(From the article):The hands-on activities of group leaders do make a difference. But the most powerful thing a leader can do to foster effective collaboration is to create conditions that help members competently manage themselves. The second most powerful thing is to launch the team well. And then, third, is the hands-on teaching and coaching that leaders do after the work is underway. Our research suggests that condition-creating accounts for about 60% of the variation in how well a team eventually performs; that the quality of the team launch accounts for another 30%; and that real-time coaching accounts for only about 10%. Leaders are indeed important in collaborative work, but not in the ways we usually think.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 3, 2013 9:13 AM

(From the article): Leadership rests on the foundation of rituals, and it is ritual which binds us together, honors our higher intentions, and acknowledges our journey. Your personal rituals -- what you make time for, and what you do not -- become the leadership rituals that define your influence, your style and your legacy. When you decide to have a clean desk, an empty inbox, run every morning, eat more vegetables, you are articulating your values and setting the example for people who work with you. You are creating a set of rituals that give you energy, exert your influence, and shift the way you are perceived.

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, February 4, 2013 11:05 AM

Intention is a key consideration to create a set of rituals that will focus you on your leadership journey. Rituals, rooted in a strong values, can open doors to do more, provide predictability, unleash creativity, inspire others & builds community.

The 8 Types Of Imagination

The 8 Types Of Imagination | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

It has been said that imagination is more important than knowledge, and for any experienced classroom teacher it is easy to see daily evidence of this.

In the blog post, Dr. Murray Hunter of the University of Malaysia Perlis has listed the 8 types of imagination we use on a daily basis, with explanations for each. Dr. Hunter defines imagination as “the ability to form mental images, phonological passages, analogies, or narratives of something that is not perceived through our senses.
