Grounded leaders are able to do away with traditional leadership stereotypes based in gender roles.
We’re all familiar with the phrase “men are from Mars and women are from Venus.” In the business world, this has had unfortunate consequences for male and female leaders.
Male leaders were typecast as dominant competitors who played politics inside hierarchies and were great at leading with power, while female leaders were expected to understand connection and communication and lead people and teams better.
With this lens, the business world developed a whole theory of preconceived notions and biases about what to expect from men and women leaders. And like most assumptions, these supposed differences took on a life of their own. Over time, we became experts at typecasting people and, ultimately, shackling men and women to these stereotypes.
It’s time to put an end to this preoccupation with gender differences. It represents an old way of thinking and does a real disservice to both men and women.
SMCalloutView for iOS 7
A while back, I wrote a custom “Callout View” control for iOS that replicated the otherwise-inaccessible system control that you normally only get in MapKit, and even then you can’t customize it directly.
Surprisingly, it became my most popular project on Github by far, even making its way into household-name apps like Evernote. And now I’m happy to announce it’s getting its biggest update yet - full support for the new system callout style introduced with iOS 7!
iOS 7 introduced a brand new style and animation for the system Callout view. The animation is less “bouncy”, the fonts are different, and the layout has been tweaked. Not to mention the new minimalistic background which is no longer composed of multiple images, but instead gets its appearance mostly from layer effects.
