We’ll also include some of the articles and the books and links that we talked about on the website. What is Resonant Leadership? The Goleman and Boyatzis leadership style quiz has a concrete goal: to evaluate the impact certain types of leaders have on our emotions. The idea was to highlight one personality in particular, that of the resonant leader. In relation to what we’ve been talking about, I think that that’s a place to start.

I shouldn’t be here. None of this is stuff that you can fake. That’s not necessarily light areas of thought, that’s some deep thinking. I remember sitting there and I know I was nervous and I know some of my classmates were nervous as well because, oh wait, we’re exercising a sense of vulnerability. Oh, thank you, Scott, for joining me today. I remember when I came through school, postsecondary school, we’d learned a lot of interesting skills and filled up our tool belt with interesting areas that we were told in school that will be well sought after, and we will then find ourselves in leadership positions because of this. And so I think those two areas trust and vulnerability play hugely into leadership development. These were people who wanted to. This focuses on the personal development of employees and requires leaders to show a genuine interest in individuals, which builds connections, grows trust, and leads to higher levels of motivation.

These relationships are characterized by the shared experience of vision and hope, compassion and caring, and mindfulness. So, I had built myself up as someone who, yeah, I’m empathetic. And so, that may be a big shift for people who are listening and I think like, okay, that doesn’t sound too hard, right? So that’s another piece that I find myself thinking about, writing about and talking to align organizations about. Yeah, that approach doesn’t work, and then even in some of the consulting that I’ve had an opportunity to do over the last a little while, we sit down with organizations and really ask them, from an organizational perspective, what’s your purpose so you make widgets? It’s an important area for up and coming leaders or even I consider you don’t necessarily need to be leading a massive team or leading a company to be a leader, right? I’ve worked with leaders who I’m pretty sure they were robots with no emotional intelligence at all to the very other ends of the spectrum who were super empathetic, caring, very self-aware and really focused on that. And so I give them a set of questions and they add to those questions information they want to learn about themselves or I feel like they ought to learn about themselves. And it does start to do that, and there’s a little more to it. What we find universally is that they talk about people who made a connection with them in some way, and that overall, the relationship they had with this person and the environment they created was positive. It’s when you get that North star that’s pulling you that you say, hey, I need to change this and I want to.

Resonant Leadership traite du « Cycle du Sacrifice et du Renouveau » qui est un concept central dans les thèses des auteurs en ce sens que le leader qui se trouve confronté aux défis de son organisation est amené à s’investir dans le traitement de ces défis, à s’impliquer dans la résolution des crises et à faire face aux menaces qui en résultent. And so, I think we as organizations need to move past that fear of, okay, well we’re investing all this money, maybe they’ll stick around, and hope they stick around to, okay, we’re going to invest in this and if they’re not necessarily the right fit for our organization, that’s okay. Resonant Leadership (Research May 2002 Consortium for Research in Emotional Intelligence) Primal leadership means the first and most important act of leadership – and is a critical component of modern leadership to drive the collected emotions in a positive direction. We now know that job turnover, employee loyalty and a number of other factors are significantly related to the level of emotional-social intelligence the leader demonstrates, a conflict that exists, the ability to resolve conflict. So you’ve been in front of numerous leaders, leaders of big companies, small companies, you’ve been in front of many students at Babson and so I’m really just curious, just I guess right down to the basics is what is the most common misconception about leadership? But first off, I’d love for you to just tell us a little bit about what’s top of mind for you in 2020 and what you’re excited about, any new research you’re doing and what’s top of mind for you? Who I truly want to be or what I want to do. I’ve heard the approach of, okay, we just need to have more emotional intelligence and we’d have to be okay at our craft, but that’s really going to help. This is about creating connections between employees, which strengthens relationships and boosts collaboration. I remember sitting in the lecture hall in Boston, I’m from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. On the other hand, if you’ve done that self-work first around the ideal self, what’s my purpose? And so your question was, can anyone be a resonant leader? It doesn’t talk about having financial literacy or know how to do process improvement or run manufacturing systems, it’s really outstanding leaders have those two qualities. Give me an example of a time when you felt like I had an impact in terms of your thinking. And it really just boils down to having really two fundamental characteristics, right? It’s about how to build a relationship, how to connect with people. They tend to be more entrepreneurial in their thinking. We need to start with what we call in psychology, the ideal self, the aspirational self. And so my recommendation is just start, start with people who know you well, care about your development and start by asking them, give me an example of a time when I made a difference. I could have areas of perception about myself that just aren’t accurate. Resonant leadership, an idea coined by Daniel Goleman, can be hard to define. You can reach your people and motivate them in a powerful and scalable way. As part of the Babson Executive and enterprise education faculty, Scott has taught in custom programs for among others, Dell EMC, FLIR Systems, Grant Thornton, the NFL, and Siemens. This self in psychology we’ve learned is directly tied to intrinsic motivation, so lighting a fire within if you will. So when I’m heavily into the data analytics and grinding out numbers and trying to problem solve, I’m not activating the network in my brain that is pro-social, reaching out, connecting with others, demonstrating empathy, and we go back and forth between these networks. Lots of articles talk about what resonant leaders do, but not what resonant leadership actually means. I quickly realized that the technical work wasn’t all that difficult, but actually leading in a way that was making an impact in my team’s work in life was. And really it’s that relational leader versus task-based. And then there are others that you can find online. Not sure what resonant leadership is or what’s so great about it? And they can give us helpful information, I’m not discounting it, but it’s one aspect of self-awareness. That’s why, instead, they need to design environments where people believe in a mission and a set of values that compels them to operate in a certain way. And so we make this investment to take them from point A to point B and that transition is going to benefit us, our shareholders, the individual in so many ways. Leaders can either send out positive or negative wavelengths, which reverberate throughout their business and influence others. While this might not come as a surprise, what really resonated is the fact that leadership should be rooted in an emotional connection, based on mindfulness, hope and compassion. If we just jump into the negative right away, tell me where I can improve. Resonant leadership is extremely important in change management. We’re not good at necessarily changing or changing behaviors, changing habits. Now, my guest today has so much wisdom in this area and has a wealth of research back knowledge that I know you’ll want to stay tuned for. The other challenge we get with just self-assessments is there’s some challenge there because, I walk around 24/7 knowing me and experiencing me, but I could have blind spots as to what that is.

So, for example, Tony Jack at Case Western Reserve University has worked with us as well and Richard and they have talked about and shown, we now know for example that when we’re talking about pro-social behavior empathy, that the networks in our brain that fire that capability, if you will, that light that up are different than the ones we use when we’re analyzing data. If somebody is starting off their leadership journey, maybe they’ve been promoted in an organization, maybe they are a founder of a company, don’t have the support from a full hr team to organize leadership development. And, helping individuals in your organization identify their ideal self will, in turn, help your organization. And it gives us, at least it gives me excitement about what’s ahead. The primary focus of his research is leader assessment and development. Awareness of how I see myself, what I know about myself, what I feel about myself. That’s great. I like to reverse that number. It also requires self-awareness, empathy, authenticity, and great communication skills. And in one of the ways it manifests itself is when I go from that individual contributor role where getting things done through me, my knowledge, my capability, my experience is really how I’m rewarded and recognized and being promoted into a position where now I have a strong responsibility to get things done through others. Resonant and dissonant leadership refers to different styles of managing employees. And, this is a big question that I have been involved in thinking about and researching about for almost 20 years. You can push. And if we don’t do that ideal self-work, what I found is the individuals get the 360 and they start to converge on, all right, what do I need to fix? Yes, for the motivated it gives us insight in a way that we may choose to do one or two things, but there’s a high factor of not really over time changing much of anything. Start with getting questions and feedback around your strengths. And, we dig into that from an organization perspective and then we dig into it on an individual perspective.

We explore the neuroscience … Resonant Leadership: Erik Synnestvedt, Richard Boyatzis, Annie McKee, Gildan Media, LLC: Livres I think it’s so important to start with the positives, right? Yeah, it’s really interesting you talk a little bit about that just the position of authority. I think of our potential, people who are listening to this podcast who may be operating an organization without an hr team or maybe you’re in a big organization with hundreds or thousands of employees. And then another, probably the third area is just the one that seems to be very applicable today as well is the antithesis of what I’ve looked at for years, which is leader self-awareness. So does that then make me a resonant leader or is it deeper than that?

Resonant leadership is behaviour of leaders who demonstrate a high level of emotional intelligence, are in tune with the emotions of those around them, use … Hearing those stories, people will often think, well, what am I going to learn from that?

I should probably move on and find somewhere else to work because I can’t be my ideal self here. Someone who is also on this journey may not have to cost you more than a cup of coffee to somebody to hold you accountable and give you feedback. I remember people including myself were talking about, well, maybe I’ll become general manager of this business unit, or I will run my own business one day. So, for example, one that’s commonly used in organization is 360 or multi-rater assessments because I may think I’m aware of my levels of empathy and know myself, but there’s a difference between being aware and demonstrating that to the world out there and how people, what I am demonstrating is translated by others. And if we go back to the example of feedback, for example, when I have been administering a 360 tool with a leadership team, we’re going to have that ideal discussion and thinking and self-work done before we go to the 360, because the 360 is going to give you feedback on the real self. I love that you went there, it’s more than just smiling and asking how someone’s weekend was. Give me an example of a time when I was at my best. Yeah, that’s a great point.
