To Lead Change, You Need To Be The Change | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
If you are growing a business, you know you will have to change the way your team does things. As the saying goes, “What got you here won’t get you there.”

The quirky urge. A funny tingle. That little voice in your head. These are your gut feelings talking. But what are they telling you, and should you listen?
Joe Boutte's insight:

Integrity-doing the right thing when no one is looking.  This is my basic definition of integrity and integrity is the building material of leadership.  Over the last few days I've come across several articles and discussions about "soft skills", emotional intelligence, and authentic leadership.  An enabler of everyday leadership is one's authentic intuition or gut instincts.  These are very important, but they are enhanced through experience, empathy, and communication with others.  In this article, the author describes 5 gut instincts we shouldn't ignore.  I agree that these are important alerts or sensors for our proactive and reactive responses to life's situations.  How do you listen and apply these instincts?

Joe Boutte's insight:

I'm excited that a new generation of problem-solving leaders is emerging across America.  Imagine an America where leaders focus on policy issues that make the lives of citizen better and the millions of dollars focused on smearing and tearing down others is replaced by renewing infrastructure, innovation, education, and real discussion and ideas.  It's possible when we engage each other as Americans rather than opponents, party tribes, and the various other groupings that stunt our democracy.  In 2018 and beyond, let's strive to replace partisanship with patriotism, solutions, and progress.  #Changeagents make the world better, smarter, and prosperous.

In Silicon Valley, Meditation Is No Fad. It Could Make Your Career | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Meditation and mindfulness are the new rage in Silicon Valley. And it's not just about inner peace—it's about getting ahead.
Joe Boutte's insight:

We must find our balance every day.  Being still and letting our brains relax for a few moments are more helpful than trying to send another "important" email, sending a text, making a call, having a meeting, or creating a social media post.  Whether we meditate, pray, take a walk, sit on a bench, or whatever relaxes us for a few minutes or longer, it is how we keep our balance and elasticity of thought.  Balance includes maintaining integrity of mind, soul, and body. Our energy and creativity is enhanced when we give it time to develop and strengthen.
