Le #Leadership vu sous différents angles

Par défaut

Daily OM

Je dirai que ce que j’ai lu sur Daily OM me concernerait moi personnellement mais 3 jours de suite à lire la «même chose» concernant ma capacité à influencer m’a interpellée et je me suis dit que finalement, nous pouvons nous influencer les uns les autres pour «faire des choses».
Ce serait dans la même veine que «Just Walk Beside Me Doing The Same Thing If You Want» tout en gardant ceci en tête (merci à l’ami soit dit en passant):
Sans vouloir le reprocher à «Tout le monde», il serait bon que «Chacun» fasse ce qu’il doit faire sans nourrir l’espoir que «Quelqu’un» le ferait à sa place. Car l’expérience montre que là où on attend «Quelqu’un», généralement on ne trouve «Personne» !

Examples of Empowerment November 6, 2011
You may find yourself overcome with envy today. You could feel jealous about the accomplishments of others, or you may feel resentful about the apparent ease with which others succeed. These feelings may be caused by a sense of frustration with your own perceived shortcomings, and you may want to engage in a period of introspection to determine what is really happening beneath your conscious awareness. You will most likely discover that your feelings of envy arise because you see others doing something that you feel you cannot. If you instead affirm to yourself that you can and will achieve any dream you hold in your heart, your envy will be replaced by excitement and eagerness to move forward with your plans today.
A strong belief in our own ability to succeed fills us with the determination to overcome obstacles and a sense of admiration for others who have achieved their dreams. Our feelings of envy can usually be traced to our own limiting beliefs about ourselves. Rather than feeling resentful about the success that others experience, we can choose to build up a solid belief that we are capable of those same accomplishments and much more. Our feelings of envy then transform into a sense of admiration and genuine happiness for those who have achieved success, and they become a living example of what is possible for everyone. By choosing to see your envious feelings as an indication of self-limiting beliefs today, you will empower yourself to accomplish more than you dreamed possible.

Empowering Influence November 5, 2011
You may have a heightened awareness of your ability to influence others today. You might be feeling the responsibility of being a role model because you know your actions will impact others, or you may feel pressured that others are looking to you for answers and direction. While you may be tempted to try to solve others’ problems or take on their burdens, you can better serve them by empowering them today. By using your ability to influence others in a way that inspires and encourages them, you will help them feel more confident about making their own choices and consequently also lessen the pressure you feel.
As we empower others to live more fulfilling lives, we also feel more empowered about our ability to contribute in meaningful ways. We often worry about taking on leadership roles because others might expect us to provide the answers they seek, and this can be a weighty responsibility. By instead choosing to empower others with the ability to make their own wise decisions and live more productive lives, we also begin to feel our confidence and inner strength expanding. Rather than feeling stressed about our responsibilities, we feel inspired by what is possible for everyone to achieve, and we focus our energy on sharing this vision with others. As a result, we encourage them to create more fulfilling lives, and we end up doing the same in our own lives. You can be a witness to the joy of empowerment in action today by using your influence to inspire others.

Running Away versus Moving Forward November 4, 2011
Facing Problems
Make sure you aren’t running away from your problems, always moving towards something.
There are times when change—moving to a new city or a new home, or changing careers—is the right thing at the right time. But there are also times when the urge for change is really just a desire to run away from problems that need to be faced rather than avoided. These are the kinds of problems that recur in our lives. For example, issues with coworkers that seem to arise at every job we take, or repeatedly getting into unhealthy relationships. A move might temporarily distract us, and even cure the problem for a time, simply by taking us out of the situation in which the problem fully manifested itself. However, the problem will eventually appear again in our new situation.
One way to make sure you aren’t running away from your problems is to notice whether you are moving towards something that is exciting in its own right, as opposed to something that is appealing only because it is not where you are now. For example, if you are leaving a city because you feel you can’t afford it, you could be reinforcing poverty consciousness, and you might find that you are unable to make ends meet in your new city as well. It would ultimately be less of an effort to stay where you are and look more deeply into your beliefs about money. You may discover that as you address these issues, you are able to make more money simply by changing your mindset. You may still decide to move, but it will be an act with a positive intention behind it and not an escape, which could make all the difference.
Any pain involved in facing our issues is well worth the effort in the end. When we face our problems instead of avoiding them, we free our energy and transform ourselves from people who run away into people who move enthusiastically forward.

New Version of the Hare and the Tortoise: Leadership, Team building and Core Competencies

Chez Nicolas Pene

Je suis tombée sur 2 tweets de @nico_pene qui «parlent» à peu de choses près de la même idée (le leadership). Voici un extrait du premier tweet.

Réveillez le leader qui est en vous
Bien que quelques rares personnes présentent naturellement des qualités de leader, sachez que l’on ne naît pas leader et que n’importe lequel d’entre nous peut très bien développer des qualités de leadership. Encore faut-il savoir comment, ce que nous allons voir aujourd’hui !
Pour bien comprendre l’attitude à adopter afin de développer votre leadership, il est tout d’abord primordial de détecter les 3 différents types de comportements qui séparent ce que je nommerais le soldat, le chef et le leader.

7 signes qu’un patron va échouer

Un petit dernier sur la route des affaires via @sebasrioux, in http://paper.li/prettyzoely/ma-cabane-au-canada du 16 novembre

AUDE MARIE MARCOUX . les affaires.com . 30-07-2010 (modifié le 14-01-2011 à 13:17)
La principale raison pour laquelle les patrons échouent n’a rien à voir avec leurs compétences, connaissances ou expériences. Leur faiblesse? Une fierté mal placée, un gros ego et un style de leadership qui ne colle pas à la réalité actuelle, selon Ray Williams, co-fondateur de la firme de formation et de coaching Success IQ University.
Dans une analyse parue dans Psychologytoday.com, M. Williams explique que cette crise de leadership survient en raison du décalage entre la façon dont les leaders se perçoivent et la vision que les autres ont d’eux. Et plus cet «angle mort» est grand, plus il est limitatif pour une carrière de gestionnaire.

1. Ils estiment qu’eux-mêmes et leur compagnie dominent leur environnement.
Signe annonciateur : Un manque de respect envers les autres. 

2. Ils s’identifient trop étroitement à leur compagnie, perdant ainsi la frontière entre les intérêts corporatifs et leurs propres intérêts.
Signe annonciateur : Ils se définissent par leur travail.

3. Ils pensent qu’ils sont les seuls à avoir les bonnes réponses.
Signe annonciateur : Peu de gens les suivent. 

4. Ils éliminent impitoyablement quiconque n’est d’un grand soutien.
Signe annonciateur : Beaucoup d’employés sont soit renvoyés ou quittent le navire. 

5. Ils sont obsédés par les photos, les discours, les événements et les publications dans lesquelles ils représentent la compagnie.
Signe annonciateur : Ils cherchent de façon flagrante l’attention des médias.

6. Ils sous-estiment les obstacles.
Signe annonciateur : Ils exagèrent et ont peu de substance. 

7. Ils s’obstinent à se référer aux réalisations et succès passés.
Signe annonciateur : Ils se réfèrent constamment à ce qui a bien fonctionné pour eux dans le passé.

Who’s the Decider?

By THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN Published: November 15, 2011
Yes, it’s true that in the hyperconnected world, in the age of Facebook and Twitter, the people are more empowered and a lot more innovation and ideas will come from the bottom up, not just the top down. That’s a good thing — in theory. But at the end of the day — whether you are a president, senator, mayor or on the steering committee of your local Occupy Wall Street — someone needs to meld those ideas into a vision of how to move forward, sculpt them into policies that can make a difference in peoples’ lives and then build a majority to deliver on them. Those are called leaders. Leaders shape polls. They don’t just read polls. And, today, across the globe and across all political systems, leaders are in dangerously short supply. 

What Influences Your Leadership?

Posted on November 16, 2011
One of John Maxwell’s more famous quotes is “Leadership is influence. Nothing more, nothing less.” I agree with this philosophy.  Influence causes people to willingly follow you; not because they have to, but because they choose to.  Influence sways people.  It impacts them, possibly even enough to change a belief or a behavior.  A strong influencer can gain much power, and an ethical influencer will gain people’s trust as well.
But I wonder how many leaders are also looking inward?  As you’re busy trying to build and extend your influence outwardly, how much attention do you pay to what’s influencing you inwardly?
