Reading Behind to Lead Ahead: Week of September 16, 2013

Highlighted below are several posts from Dallas area leaders, members of the Authentic Leadership Dallas, and the Lead Change community. Enjoy!

How Transformational Leaders Create a Captivating Vision by Tal Shnall. Key quote: “Transforming leaders are sincere, personable and caring. These leaders demonstrate empathy to the needs and interests of others. They enable, empower and challenge followers.”

Leadership by Engagement by Tal Shnall on Lead Change. Key quote: ” The engaged leader is willing and able to develop more leaders to create a sense of a shared platform. Everyone can contribute. Everyone can make a difference.”

Thinking About Creating a Change Leadership Department? by Betsy Winkler. Key quote: “You cannot neglect to practice sound change leadership principles yourself. Never forget this is, in and of itself, a change project too! A sponsor with significant business credibility in the organization is essential to success.”

You Can’t Save a Dying Flower by Watering its Petals by Kristy Smith on Lead Change. Key quote: “That phrase has been housed in my journal for a few months now; powerful to me each time I run across it. Determined to bring it to life, it reminds me that the sooner I quit watering the petals and start watering the roots, the closer I become to seeing results. And something about seeing results, always pushes me to keep-on tending.”

Lead well in the week ahead!
