    How is Good Leadership Defined?

     What behaviors characterize effective leaders? What is “it”?  Leaders vary their behavior within boundaries of their style shaped by

    talent, strengths and preference  Usual organizational vs. emergency (may be the norm)

     Also depends on context  Societal values  Culture of the organizations  Nature of the task  Characteristics of the followers

     Is Leadership the same a Management Skills?  Communicate with others  Handle conflicts  Delegate tasks  Use their time efficiently  Analyze problems and reach sound and fair decisions

    Behaviors Associated in People’s Mind with Leadership

    Communal – Feminine ?

    Agentic – Masculine ?

    Affectionate Aggressive Helpful Ambitious Friendly Dominant Kind Self-confident Sympathetic Forceful Gentle Self-reliant Soft-spoken Individualistic View Women as Less Competent Lack Leadership Potential

    May initiate negotiations and self- select into competitive environments

    Bias for Strength Based Leadership

    • Our culture tends to focus on weaknesses not strengths • Parents focus on F s not A s and students remediate • News focus is on bad news, not great news

    Negativity bias

    • To actively manage change, you first need to define the core problem and diagnosis a root cause • Anchoring - rely too heavily one piece of information • Negative

    Deficit-based change bias

    • Boss says “Jan, we need a meeting; I need to give you feedback (neutral)”

    • Leaders who are capable of triggering positive emotions (hope, optimism and resilience) achieve superior results

    Neutral bias

    • We underestimate the universe of strengths people have at their disposal and fail to develop them

    • The highest level of performance and accomplishment co- occurring with the highest levels of employee satisfaction are found where leaders take an interest in and support the employees’ ability to bring their strengths into play

    Underestimation bias

    Donald O. Clifton: The Father of Strengths-Based Psychology and Creator of the Clifton StrengthsFinder

    Strengths Based Leadership Equation

    Talent (an innate and natural way of thinking, feeling or acting – similar at 3, 26 or 66)

    X investment (the time you spend training, developing your skills and adding to your knowledge within the field)

    --- competency and knowledge level --- for every hour you spend on your

    weaknesses, spend three hours on your strengths --- the task of leadership is to create an

    alignment of strengths; making our weaknesses insignificant

    = strength

    Strength is an innate talent that we have invested time and energy in developing which we may use to create high performance for individuals and organizations.

    Your strengths are positive, they are your multiplier, magnifier, and represent you at your best.
