Courage and integrity are what makes a man a leader!

John Michel's curator insight, January 25, 2013 10:06 PM

Courageous leaders are in high demand and short supply these days.

Rampant fear has sent many organizational cultures into a downward spiral, the tenuous state of the economy creating untold levels of anxiety. According to a 2011/2012 Kenexa report , workplace stress is at the highest levels in four years, driven in large part by fear. In these situations, people tend to keep their heads down and their mouths shut in order to survive.  This not only applies to the rank and file, but to management as well.

These are the times that call for bold, confident, courageous leadership.  As history has shown, those with the guts to step forward, take some risks and lead change during downturns will be the winners as the economy rebounds.

But it’s not easy.  Demonstrating leadership courage - whether it’s having an uncomfortable conversation, communicating when you don’t have all the answers, or making a decision to move ahead on a new project – can be scary. Yet it’s precisely the kind of behavior that fosters trust and sets a crucial example for others to follow at a time when they’d rather hunker down and wait for the storm to pass.

If you want to see more courageous action by your people, consider whether you’re modeling the 10 traits of courageous leaders:

Twitter Study Finds African Americans Shape Language - San Francisco - News - The Snitch

Twitter Study Finds African Americans Shape Language - San Francisco - News - The Snitch | twitterature | Scoop.it

Much has been written about Twitter's role in our culture as an ever-evolving, self-organizing dictionary. But new research refines just how language is being shaped.

Turns out, big cities with large black populations are responsible for turning the crank on the sausage maker of American English.

Jacob Eisenstein of the Georgia Institute of Technology and associates at Carnegie Mellon University took a sample of 44 million geotagged tweets, from June 2009 to May 2011, and filtered out certain words based on frequency and novelty. Words like "bruh" and abbreviations like "af" ("as fuck") were essentially tagged like little wild concepts and tracked as they moved across the country, popping up in messages across any of the 200 largest metro areas.

The team then compared these migratory patterns to census data in that city and were able to determine the demographics of the most linguistically productive places.
