6 Things Managers Could Stand To Learn From Coaches | leadership & development | Scoop.it

Coaching is based on the premise that, with help, people can ignite their own potential and achieve or even accelerate their results by discovering solutions for themselves. Great managers have the ability to drive uncommonly successful results for their organization by coaching their people.

Katherine Prewitt's insight:
Great tips on how to apply coaching practice to management...although in the 'real world' of business it might be good to work with tips #1-4 for a while before moving on...

In order to be a great manager, you need to be an effective coach with the ability to ask powerful questions, listen actively, and offer observations.

The strong correlation between fair leadership and inspiring change

The strong correlation between fair leadership and inspiring change | leadership & development | Scoop.it
Katherine Prewitt's insight:

Hard to make a comment as resonant as the article itself!


It talks about FAIRNESS as a principle to retain and motivate employees to perform, buy into the company's ethical commitment, AND create a loyalty-generating ripple effect (toward other employees, customers, partners, suppliers).


And about how TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP

- sets ethical standards for others to follow

- participates in shared goals in an ethical manner

- allows others to be involved in decision making

- takes employee's individual needs and skills into account...


(Such a simple list, but anyone with management experience knows what a challenge it is to tick the boxes!)

Napoleon Hill - The Law of Attraction

Napoleon Hill audio recording
Katherine Prewitt's insight:
Napoleon Hill, one of the earliest of the modern genre of personal-success literature personas... and what a persona! 

 I'm drawn to his definition of success: the "knowledge to get whatever you want from life without violating the rights of others and by helping others to acquire". 

It's fun to dip into the (long) recording. 1925!
