    The Dark Underbelly of Leadership: The Paradox of Authentic Leadership

    in Business

    Linda Lombardo and Joss Rowlands continue the conversation about what is leadership and how the dark underbelly shows up when we least expect it. 


    This month's topic: Authentic Leadership - Well, ok, you might say - If it's not authentic, then what is it? 


    Here's a quote from a 2013 article on leadership: a Forbes article by contributor Kevin Kruse. 

    "It continues to surprise me how many leaders attempt to be one way at work, while their ‘true’ personality emerges outside of work. Once a CEO reminded me, ‘Leadership is acting.’ And it surprises me when these same leaders seem shocked or confused when their employees don’t trust them, don’t like them, and can’t really wait to work elsewhere." -Kevin Kruse, Forbes


    Joss and Linda explore the paradox of authentic leadership within the dark underbelly, or perhaps its the paradox of the dark underbelly within authentic leadership? Please join us to find out.

    The Dark Underbelly of Leadership Part 4: Power Elements in Relationships

    in Culture

    The Dark Underbelly of Leadership Series continues with Power Elements in Relationship: what's shaped us to become the people we are today? How do archetypes fit into our past and connect to our present and future? 


    This exploration and conversation is hosted by Linda Lombardo with Joss Rolands and this program's guest, coach Phil Askew.


    Together, we explore the passive child: puppet, slave or shapeshifter archetypes, the child who was encouraged to have a voice - wondering whose voice was it, and the revolutionary and rebel child: making waves for the sake waves or something bigger than him or herself; acting from ego or servant leadership. 


    A fascinating conversation that will leave you with more inquiry than answer, and lots of places to search within yourself.

    John Carver Show - Leadership...You've Got It!

    in Self Help

    I’ve met so many people who think Leaders are born or they need to have a title or a position.  I don’t buy that idea.


    Leadership is shown by your actions and not your words.


    Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) – Galileo was willing to challenge the orthodoxy of the church through his own scientific discoveries. This commitment to truth and science came despite personal threats to his well-being.


    Witold Pilecki (1901 –  1948) During WW2 Pilecki joined the underground Polish resistance. In 1943, he volunteered to smuggle himself into Auschwitz concentration camp so he could report on the holocaust to the allies. He then escaped Auschwitz and took part in the Warsaw uprising of 1944. In 1948, he was executed by the Stalinist secret police for retaining loyalty to the non-Communist Polish government.


    I cannot get my head around this method that God chooses.


    The older I get the more I realize more people watch your life than you can imagine.


    “One of the hardest places, in leadership, is what you DO with what you KNOW when you THINK what you KNOW isn’t WORKING.  What you DO, when you’re DOWN, can determine the OUTCOME!”  Me


    Repeating - The older I get the more I realize more people watch your life than you can imagine.


    Job made a choice that I really don’t know if I could have made…22 Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.


    Leadership is standing when you feel like falling on your face in anguish and staying there.


    Leadership is NOT a title.


    Leadership is about influencing others in your life with your words, habits and actions.


    “Leadership is an action, not a position.” ~ Donald McGannon

    Drama, what we all love to talk about, but loathe to deal with!

    in Self Help

    *This is a re-recording, due to technical difficulties.* Many of us complain about drama. We're usually referring to others' drama, not our own. How do we become involved in the drama, when the last place we want to be is in the thick of it? Well, many of us observed drama growing up and as much as we say we "don't like it or want it' we often help to create it.


    As human beings we all have our own sense of reality based on our beliefs...our filters out into the world. And it means we see things from our version of circumstances, which doesn't always translate to what someone else sees or experiences. Friction can occur, a difference in styles of communication, but most importantly...drama is created by a stance. 


    If I don't feel heard, or need attention or view people from a perspective that they don't get me...I inadvertently am communicating with them in a way to provoke. (or sometimes purposely doing it) How do we stop drama? Transparent communication from a space of truth inside. At least from our view, if we are stating something, which is not an indictment of another person, but a truth about ourselves...then we can release the 'resistant stance' against another. Make sense? Join me to find out more.

    Waiting On God's Messengers

    in Spirituality

    Have you ever asked God or your chosen deity for something, a sign, anything to let you know what you should do next?  And then waited and waited and waited, and then waited some more for an answer?  An answer that didn’t come, only to realize later that you may have missed it because of how events are unfolding in your life.  Did you know that the Universal Creator uses people, places and things to answer your requests?   So why do we miss out on the answers?   Answers which do come to us, yet we don’t seem to hear them.

    Join me, Dr. Wendy Dearborne choice expert as I explore why we may be missing out on some of the most important messages in our lives, and what to do to tune in so you’ll hear them.

    Hillary's In - Now What? What's Wanting in Leadership in 2016?

    in Politics

    On April 12, 2015, a NY Times article read:


    “Ending two years of speculation and coy denials, Hillary Rodham Clinton announced on Sunday that she would seek the presidency for a second time, immediately establishing herself as the likely 2016 Democratic nominee.


    “I’m running for president,” she said with a smile near the end of a two-minute video released just after 3 p.m.


    “Everyday Americans need a champion. And I want to be that champion,” Mrs. Clinton said. “So I’m hitting the road to earn your vote — because it’s your time.  And I hope you’ll join me on this journey.””


    We've been on quite a journey already, and so, another one? Will it be different? If yes, how? If no, then what? What's wanting from our leadership in 2016 ... or sooner?


    Linda Lombardo and David Taylor-Klaus talk about how our leaders might lead from the emerging future rather than the old stories of the past.

    The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis #11

    in Business

     



    The disease of indifference to others. This is where each leader thinks only of himself or herself, and loses the sincerity and warmth of [genuine] human relationships. This can happen in many ways: When the most knowledgeable person does not put that knowledge at the service of less knowledgeable colleagues, when you learn something and then keep it to yourself rather than sharing it in a helpful way with others; when out of jealousy or deceit you take joy in seeing others fall instead of helping them up and encouraging them. Join Johnnie and his guest co-host Robert Stephens, the famous founder of Geek Squad, reknowned entrepeneur and inspirational leader, as they tackle the dialogue of selfish leadership and how it can tear apart even the greatest organizations.
