Ask Yourself These 5 Questions Before Deciding On A Leadership Style

Ask Yourself These 5 Questions Before Deciding On A Leadership Style | New Leadership | Scoop.it

First-time managers often ask themselves how to develop a leadership style that suits them: “Who should I model myself after? What kind of leader should I be?” It’s great to think critically about your approach to managing others, particularly when you’re new to it, but these questions won’t exactly help you.

 

That’s because they assume that leadership is something you try on and show off, a “style” that’s curated and intentional. But especially in the beginning, your style will be based far less on mirroring others’ habits and behaviors and far more on instinct and intuition. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

To develop a leadership style that’s authentic to you, let it take shape organically, not through intentional curation.

How Becoming A Good Listener Can Make You A Better Leader

How Becoming A Good Listener Can Make You A Better Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Running a business is an inherently emotional experience. Even the most stoic leaders are bound to find themselves becoming invested not only in outcomes, but in people and processes as well.

 

While emotional leadership is often regarded as a liability, lack of personal investment can also bring about negative outcomes.

 

I’ve learned that the best leaders are those who can recognize emotionally-charged situations, rise above the passions of the movement, and maintain a level head. Good leaders are quick to listen and slow to anger.

What does it mean to listen? Listening points to four levels: what we can see and hear, the emotions and thoughts, the sensations and what's wanting to emerge (or not). How much of our listening is directed to each of these four levels? Do we really listen when we speak? Do we listen inwards, outwards, both, or neither? Listening comes from the feminine side of us, specially deep listening. What is needed for a deeper listening? What is all this noise telling us?

Good leaders listens first
CCM Consultancy's curator insight, October 24, 1:23 AM

Leaders often mistake anger for power and fear for respect. But as we can see readily in the news these days, angry bosses and leaders are rarely effective. Having a good yell may feel cathartic in the moment, but it creates a toxic environment and erodes your standing amongst your team.

2 Daily Priorities That All Successful Leaders Never Ignore

2 Daily Priorities That All Successful Leaders Never Ignore | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A CEO client is over-extended, has too many priorities to juggle, and is simultaneously hyper-stressed and hyper-exhausted. Actually this describes many of my clients. Does this sound like you too?

 

Friends, this is no way to go through life. As someone who has dodged two cancer bullets while building two businesses and raising two sons, I have a very healthy respect for mortality, along with the insight that tomorrow is not promised to anyone.

 

During our call this week, my client shared her anxiety about getting everything accomplished, and that she has made no time to exercise or decompress in several days. She is on a non-stop treadmill.

This Three-Word Phrase Is Subtly Undermining Your Authority

This Three-Word Phrase Is Subtly Undermining Your Authority | New Leadership | Scoop.it

You don’t need to be told why it matters to be transparent and honest at work–that much is a given. So is the overall usefulness of expressing yourself clearly, confidently, and with as few filler words as possible. But in the effort to do that, many of us fall back on common expressions that might sound totally fine in social situations but can do some quiet damage in the workplace. One of them is “I’m sorry.” Another is “to be honest.”

 

The latter turn of phrase–and versions of it, like “honestly,” “frankly,” “if I can be honest with you,” or “let me be frank”–is easy to resort to when you want to cut through the crap, come clean, or offer your unvarnished opinion. But these expressions also tend to attach themselves to–and subtly encourage–certain messages that are either better left unsaid or ought to be rephrased. Here are times when “to be honest” can make you sound less authoritative around the office.

Sounding confident, transparent, and truthful doesn’t require any prefaces.

4 Reasons Great Leaders Don't Need to Criticize

4 Reasons Great Leaders Don't Need to Criticize | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I have a fundamental belief about the kind of people I try to employ. And that's that they're going to be harder on themselves than I'll ever need to be. I also believe that the concept of constructive criticism is overrated, if not an outright fallacy. Your employees are either aware of problems with their performance, or they're not.

 

The best way to find out which category they're in is through asking questions and listening. Let's look at some of the reasons this passive approach to problem-solving is good for both of you.

5 Ways Social Learning Communities Transform Culture and Leadership - Forbes

5 Ways Social Learning Communities Transform Culture and Leadership - Forbes | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Community, more than any other factor, will transform the role of leaders and influence the development of workplace culture. The power of online learning communities is more visible in lean-running start-ups where skills must shift quickly, but I think their effect will be more profound in established companies on a global scale.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, January 5, 2013 11:54 AM

"Online learning social communities exist which cater to all learning styles, all skill sets and personalities, native abilities and educational needs.

 

Available to employees on-demand as well as via mobile devices and tablets, online learning communities remove barriers dear to the hearts of brick-and-mortar universities and companies."
