Leadershipchat

LeadershipChat Transcript Nov 30, 2010

#LeadershipChat is hosted each Tuesday at 8pmET by @LisaPetrilli and @swoodruff. This week’s chat was on Passion and the role it plays in Leadership. For some good background reading, check out the following posts by Lisa “I Like The Pope” Petrilli and Steve “I Don’t Care Much For Cheerleaders” Woodruff which set the tone for tonight’s wild discussion.

Along the way, we hit some key topics, such as the definition of “passion” and how is it nurtured or developed, how vision and passion relate, the dual/symbiotic roles of passion and enthusiasm in leadership, the ways that passion in leaders can drive passion in others (as well as attract people who share the same passion) and how good leaders often know when to step aside and let others utilize their own passion, building both team spirit/focus and a common sense of purpose and ownership.
I hope you enjoy the transcript as much as I enjoyed participating in the chat, and I encourage you to follow both this chat and the people below – they are some of the brightest people I know.

Feel free to continue this conversation in the comments section below, and if you like this transcript and feel others might as well or would benefit from our discussion, please RT liberally – it’s all about the conversation. And please, remember to read from the bottom up! ;-)

@wadnikhil RT @Starbucker: You also have to love what you do – you cannot fake passion. People can see right through that. #leadershipchat -9:33 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@CASUDI @JDEbberly @divacoachdabney @lindaperrybarr ~~ teaching passion ~ what a CONCEPT :-) #leadershipchat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@MatthewLiberty @swoodruff to have real passion, u have to be a believer to the core, otherwise your just in sales #leadershipchat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@ServantTweeter RT @swoodruff: So, can someone be passionate without being a “true believer” in the cause? YES result oriented people Are #leadershipchat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@LVSConsulting RT @LoisMarketing: As a leader you should show genuine passion but you must also show that you walk your talk — and produce results #LeadershipChat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@AmySwipeRite @swoodruff I say “No.” I’ve seen it happen a dozen times, people WANT to drink the kool-aid, but can’t. It shows. #leadershipchat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@JanelleBowden Re mentoring – if you are a passionate person, do you find it hard to find others that inspire you and can mentor? #leadershipchat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@steinerm @AmySwipeRite @steinerm interesting! What if the passion is misdirected. Let’s say its for *evil* purposes? #Leadershipchat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@fredmcclimans @swoodruff Passion without belief is self-motivated greed. It is “fake” or misguided at best. #leadershipchat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@RichardNatoli @swoodruff I think there can be many sources of passion. You need to find your motivation and be passionate about that. #leadershipchat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@swoodruff @LVSConsulting @DelaneyKirk Yeah, that same cheese guy displaced my lunch meat. Probably made a sandwich. #leadershipchat -8:49 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@jonathansaar @MatthewLiberty agreed.. it may be acquired through development but most often it needs to be in your blood #leadershipchat -8:45 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@AmySwipeRite RT @arowect: #leadershipchat personality may get you there, passion keeps you there, thats my theory -8:13 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@MargieClayman @CASUDI for me, vision serves as a motivation, and it keeps my passion on a path instead of all over the darned place. #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@fredmcclimans @swoodruff Passion & enthusiasm go hand-in-hand. The issue is your perspective: inward or outward? Pope or Cheerleader? #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@arowect #leadershipchat personality may get you there, passion keeps you there, thats my theory -8:13 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@TheBrandChef @MargieClayman oh no… passion has heart in it, it just may mean there is a need for it… you hit enthusiasm right on ! #leadershipchat -8:12 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@DeniseWBarreto @Starbucker Another way to show passion is to be real – inauthentic passion is exhausting and pointless. #leadershipchat -8:12 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@MargieClayman @JanelleBowden To me, enthusiasm means you’re happy to do something. Passion means you have to. #leadershipchat -8:11 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@AmySwipeRite RT @swoodruff: I think it’s very hard to have enduring passion without a clear vision. #leadershipchat -8:11 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@ntalukdar3 “One person with passion is greater than 50 people who are merely interested.” Can’t remember who said it… #leadershipchat -8:11 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@SeanMcGinnis @DavidHolzmer I would agree with you. Can also be reflected in an intensity or focus of purpose, don’t you think? #leadershipchat -8:11 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@AmySwipeRite @Starbucker You are dead on (as usual). Leading by example is paramount, and a true display of passion. #leadershipchat -8:10 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@charityestrella RT @ckburgess: Leaders are “people who leave their footprints in their areas of passion.” Author Unknown #LeadershipChat -8:10 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@swoodruff @JanelleBowden That’s a good question. I think of enthusiasm in more emotional terms. Passion deeper (but w/emotion still) #leadershipchat -8:10 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@pprothe RT @MargieClayman: People are comparing passion to buzz & bullets. Sometimes it can be soft tho, like a cool wind on a hot day. #leadershipchat -8:10 PM Nov 30th, 2010

@AmySwipeRite RT @Starbucker: Another way to show passion – lead by example. Never be afraid to roll up your sleeves and dig in (w/ a smile, of course!) #leadershipchat -8:10 PM Nov 30th, 2010

Leadershipchat

LeadershipChat Transcript Nov 23, 2010

#LeadershipChat is hosted each Tuesday at 8pmET by @LisaPetrilli and @swoodruff (mug-shots below). This week’s chat was an “open-mic” format: bring it, and discuss it.

We spent a good bit of time discussing the differences between Leadership, influence, motivation and manipulation. We also discussed the hiring/firing of bad apples and what it takes to be a leader – even if you are not in a leadership role. There was also an interesting discussion about surrounding yourself with the right team, prompted in part by @LouImbriano, and some interesting marriage-related comments by @berkson0 - all in all a great “open mic” discussion. I hope you enjoy the transcript as much as I enjoyed participating in the chat.

And please, remember to read from the bottom up!  ;-)  One additional note: If you’d like to see this type of summary for the Analyst/Influence chat that Steve Loudermilk (@loudyoutloud) and I host each week, let me know and I’ll hire somebody to make it happen  =:-)

@REALChaseAdams @qstreet @mantywebdesigns has some amazing insights on everything business/leadership. #leadershipchat #usguys -9:43 PM Nov 23rd, 2010
