For my next series of articles, I am going to change my focus. I plan to spend time on several different aspects of leadership including:
Behavioral underpinnings of leadership
Developing as a leader
Teams—forming and developing them.
Decisions—beyond the basics
My goal is to create short, 3–5-minute reads, but impactful articles. They will tend to be narrower in scope than what I’ve normally done. There will be a thread followed within each section listed above from beginning to end. The goal is to create a working level of understanding of the subject matter.
The first section listed above will cover important aspects of the behavioral side of leadership. Right now, these topics are covered:
Understanding and improving your leadership
Four core leadership behaviors
Where does your behavior come from?
How paradoxes affect your behavior
A process for changing problem behavior.
Dealing with change
Dual awareness—being aware on two levels.
Leading in the moment—responding to crises with appropriate actions and decisions.
I hope you’ll join us. It will be a quick way to learn something useful.
