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

Feature | @davidmcgraw What’s the difference between control and manipulation? #LeadershipChat -8:14 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @ckburgess #LeadershipChat Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, leadership is best viewed through the yes of the follower. -8:14 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @fredmcclimans Absolutely! > @CASUDI: @fredmcclimans from the outside motivating can appear to be manipulating :-) #leadershipchat -8:14 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @pprothe RT @fredmcclimans: @mantywebdesigns @swoodruff Excellent point. Sometimes leadership isn’t fair. Similar to “need to know” concept. #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @swoodruff @DavidHolzmer In the end, I think the manipulator views others as objects – means to an end. And that’s not real leadership. #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @mantywebdesigns @jolewitz Or as I tell my children, sometimes the most fair thing looks the least fair. #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @LisaPetrilli @fredmcclimans @Robert_Rose When I negotiated w/pharma companies I had a much dif mindset – never undue influence #LeadershipChat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @DavidHolzmer @sixuntilme Agreed. I think integrity plays a big part. #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @Robert_Rose @fredmcclimans – hmmm have to disagree… I’m a big fan of negotiate for what you want – not what you think you can get #LeadershipChat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @CASUDI @fredmcclimans from the outside motivating can appear to be manipulating :-) #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @fredmcclimans @mantywebdesigns @swoodruff Excellent point. Sometimes leadership isn’t fair. Similar to “need to know” concept. #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @berkson0 @lisapetrilli and yet talented ppl are thrust into leadership positions hoping they will “grow into it”. How can we tell? #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @mantywebdesigns RT @fredmcclimans: @livepath You bring up an excellent point: Motivating vs Manipulating. Discuss… #leadershipchat -8:13 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @DavidHolzmer Also tied into the issue of manipulation is the notion of respect. Does the leader view others as colleagues or as objects? #leadershipchat -8:12 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @jolewitz @mantywebdesigns #leadershipchat exactly… strive to be fair, but be willing to do the right thing even when not fair -8:12 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @pprothe @CASUDI but I think of manipulation as sinister; agree that leaders must influence, direct, motivate; depends on intent, no? #leadershipchat -8:12 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @sixuntilme A leader doesn’t always have to be manipulative. Not all manipulators are leaders. Integrity needs to be part of leading. @#leadershipchat -8:12 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @swoodruff Someone who is manipulating is leading. But it’s for selfish reasons. #leadershipchat

Feature | @Robert_Rose @swoodruff – is there a picture of my old boss there… She fits that definition pretty well #LeadershipChat -8:11 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @mantywebdesigns @swoodruff I think it’s the unfair part that makes for iffy leadership. Although sometimes leadership isn’t fair. #leadershipchat -8:11 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @steinerm it can be both. RT @swoodruff: Dictionary.com on Manipulate: to manage or influence skillfully, esp. in an unfair manner #Leadershipchat -8:11 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @CASUDI @pprothe doing whatever it takes to get something done (as a leader) can get interpreted as manipulative? #leadershipchat -8:11 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @fredmcclimans @Robert_Rose Leadership (or exertion of influence) & manipulation often have common goals – think negotiations as example. #leadershipchat -8:11 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @swoodruff @JoeCascio Ahh, you did show up – we needed some Connecticut in here! But where’s New Orleans, @tommartin?? #leadershipchat -8:11 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @ldiomede Good evening #LeadershipChat. What fun am I missing? -8:10 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @livepath @fredmcclimans Hm. Isn’t true leadership motivating people to follow/act without feeling manipulated to do so? #leadershipchat -8:10 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @LisaPetrilli @berkson0 Alan I say both – some skills and talents inherent, others come from richness of experiences #LeadershipChat -8:10 PM Nov 23rd, 2010

Feature | @pprothe Nice! RT @jolewitz: @fredmcclimans I don’t think leaderhip is ever manipulation or it stops being leaderhip #leadershipchat -8:10 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @DavidHolzmer My thought:manipulation cannot exist in a vacuum. Just like a fungus, it needs an unhealthy environment 2 support it. #leadershipchat -8:09 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @Robert_Rose @jolewitz @fredmcclimans – yes @jolewitz said it better than I did #leadershipchat
-8:09 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @pprothe #leadershipchat@fredmcclimans – that’s a slippery slope. If trying to maniuplate, up to something? Sounds very unauthentic, un leader -8:09 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


Feature | @swoodruff I think leadership and manipulation involve a lot of the same behaviors – but it’s purpose/intent that makes the diff. #leadershipchat -8:09 PM Nov 23rd, 2010

@JoeCascio @swoodruff Yo. #leadershipchat -8:08 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


@mantywebdesigns @DavidHolzmer Funny, I just thought the same thing. #leadershipchat -8:08 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


@LisaPetrilli @jolewitz :) I don’t want to miss all the fun & smart #LeadershipChat peeps! Thanksgiving travels can wait :) -8:08 PM Nov 23rd, 2010

@Robert_Rose @fredmcclimans — I guess I would say no (to can they co-exist) and ask why one would ever endeavor to be manipulative #LeadershipChat -8:08 PM Nov 23rd, 2010

@pprothe Make that 2 RT @fredmcclimans: ‘been trying 2reach through Twitterverse 2 figure out what @danparezfilms is doing in Korea? #leadershipchat -8:08 PM Nov 23rd, 2010

@mantywebdesigns @fredmcclimans Interesting ? At the point where what you’re trying to lead people to do is no longer mutually beneficial? #leadershipchat -8:07 PM Nov 23rd, 2010

@berkson0 I like Fred’s question better #leadershipchat -8:07 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


@DavidHolzmer Hm. Great question Fred! I think when it no longer supports mutually agreed-upon goals and methods. #leadershipchat -8:07 PM Nov 23rd, 2010

@swoodruff @fredmcclimans Can of worms just opened…any takers?? #leadershipchat -8:07 PM Nov 23rd, 2010


@Robert_Rose @livepath – Nice… Linda Richman reference in first five minutes… #LeadershipChat -8:06 PM Nov 23rd, 2010

@fredmcclimans Okay, serious question for you all: At what point does Leadership become Manipulation? Can they co-exist (deftly)? #leadershipchat -8:06 PM Nov 23rd, 2010
