Leadership with Nick Major (NAPP)

Why should anyone be led by me?
Facilitated.... mentored... coached... ?
Addressing the self doubt?  What works for me...

The Imposter Syndrome - Book by Harold Hillman PhD 

Managing this and becoming an authentic leader... reframe feelings of self-doubt! 

Credibility - How leaders gain and lost it, why people demand it, James Kouzes & Barry Posner Research. 

Extraordinary Leadership in Australia and New Zealand: The Five Practices that Create Great Workplaces

What values or personal traits do we have that people look for in leaders?

Out of all of these:

Top four to give leader credibility:
Forward Looking

These attributes endow a leader with credibility!
Know and believe in self!
Know strengths and weaknesses.
Know passions!

"Leadership is a relationship, with credibility as the cornerstone, between those who aspire to lead and those who choose to follow." Kouzes and Posner

Rule 2:  DWYSYWD - Do what you say you will do!

Theory X versus Theory Y

Embracing the gatekeepers, 

"The essential role of leadership (and of leading change) is to find out how and what your colleagues (constituents) think, feel and believe and how this informs their practice... or doesn't."

  • Deliberate acts of coaching/mentoring; 
  • Leadership is a conversation, a dialogue, not a monologue.
  • Asking really good, timely questions... mindfully listening to what is being said...
"I cannot teach anyone anything.  I can only make them think."  Socrates. 

Whakatauki - listening...  

Titiro, whakarongo, korero, Look, listen and then speak... 

Coaching is a collaborative, solution focused learning relationship, through which positive change is facilitated. Leading to a better future through the team's aspirations... 

Insert images for triple loop learning:
Moving from 
Single loop       Following the rules
Double loop     Changing the rules
Triple loop       New rules...
Moving to new ways of being... transformational/system change

"If your job is to help people do what they do, remember it's more about THEM than it is about YOU!"
