Effective executives have a number of distinct styles

Developing leadership styles
19 minutes by Will Larson

I came to more fully appreciate that there’s no one style of executive leadership that’s applicable everywhere, and that particularly effective executives have a number of distinct styles that they’re able to swap between to solve a given challenge.

  2. Leading from consensus.

  3. Leading with conviction.

Is Your Team Overworking But Underperforming?
5 minutes by by Eduardo Briceño

Hard work comes in two equally important forms: effort to perform and effort to improve. But too often, we only focus on the first part and become trapped in lengthy to-do lists. Eduardo calls this the “performance zone.” When we switch our lens to include efforts to improve, entering what he calls the “learning zone,” we can get things done in ways that make us more effective. Not only does this result in better outcomes, it makes our journeys more interesting, enjoyable, and fulfilling.
