Researchers at the University of Leicester have proven that students assign the most authority to teachers who care about them. If this is true, then you are demonstrating a wonderful principle: that respect comes from kind behavior.

"Bluster and the alpha instinct, contends Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, professor of business psychology, often get mistaken for ability and effectiveness (at least for a while)". 

Great article. I strongly believe that no matter which leadership theory you prefer, there are some basic characteristics for any leader: humility is definitely one of them.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 22, 2014 10:58 PM

(From the article): People often divide their time between learning and non-learning. Learning is usually much more focused, dedicated time. Even our education systems are built around that concept — first we learn for several years, and then we work. Smart learners do it differently. They use every occasion to learn something new — about the food they eat, the way things work, different cultures, different roles in the same organization, history, and the people around them. The world is a great source of knowledge and skills, available 24/7, so they ask tons of questions and connect the dots.

Coaching organizations is less a process than a collective entrepreneurial adventure with its own success factors. Slow down to accelerate is one key success factor. Invest in large group conversations is a second one. Engage in creating a positive relationship quality is a third one.

Here's Why Facebook Is Blowing $19 Billion On WhatsApp

Here's Why Facebook Is Blowing $19 Billion On WhatsApp | IB BUSINESS & MANAGEMENT | Scoop.it

Even in this era of multibillion-dollar valuations for tech startups that have barely moved out of the founders’ parents’ basement, the idea ofFacebook paying $19 billion for a mobile messaging service seems simply insane.

But that’s what Facebook likely will be spending toacquire WhatsApp, the latest–well, not even actually the latest–social network and communications service. The company today announced the deal, which includes $12 billion in Facebook stock, $4 billion in cash, and up to $3 billion in restricted Facebook stock units to be granted to WhatsApp founders and employees over a four-year vesting period.

Why so much for a service that a lot of people have never even heard of? Because it’s growing really, really fast–faster, in fact, than just about any similar service to date, including Facebook. More than 450 million people are using the service monthly, and 70% of them are active on any given day, according to Facebook’spress release. More than 1 million more are registering to use it every day.

Most stunning, WhatsApp messaging volume is apparently approaching the entire worldwide SMS messaging volume of mobile carriers. That’s the kind of growth Facebook, whose own messaging service has been growing rapidly but nothing like that, simply can’t ignore.
