I am new to my current leadership role, although I have been at the helm before, each time brings a new set of challenges and circumstances. We must build off our past experience and hope it eventually culminates into a highly effective skill set which we can use to develop and lead an organization.
So I am constantly trying to educate myself in this regard. As you may very well know the Internet is full of information and experts.
My selection process for finding and following the advice of the new leaders is well unique to me. Let me just say that, I do have my own vetting process. So I was looking for someone new and fresh, and transparent, but yet at the same time intriguing and complicated, or maybe a better word is intelligent, and well along comes Lolly Daskal.
Lolly has a straight forward style, and advocates to “Lead From Within” and I have to say it is refreshing and brilliant.
This piece is called sharing is succeeding.
In Lolly’s words.
Change affects everyone. And everyone needs to be included.
No one wants to hear that the change is a top-down initiative. No one wants to be told what to do.
Creating strategy or substance for change does not happen with one person at the top. It happens with the people making it happen. Ultimately, it’s the people who are responsible for the outcome.
To succeed at change, we need an organization that knows and understands Sharing for Succeeding.
Shared Solution: All of us are involved in some kind of problem solving everyday, both in our personal and professional lives. Sharing a problem statement that supports the change can be a good first step in the process.
Shared Vision: To move forward we need the power to envision exciting possibilities together. Identifying the direction and vision together creates a bond among leaders.
The ability to share a vision is the attribute that most distinguishes leaders from non-leaders.
If any of the curators are reading this I hope it resonates and if you are a visitor of our site and are facing challenges in your organization I know this will help, along with perhaps a little soul searching. So go ahead and enter the world which is Lolly Daskal.
