How Great Leaders Hire The Right People

How Great Leaders Hire The Right People | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
 

"I look for someone with something to prove—to your old boss, your dad, your third-grade teacher, yourself. I don’t care where it comes from: You need that hustle." —Emily Weiss, founder and CEO, Glossier

 

"I ask, ‘Think of your worst day—what happens?’ You learn about people’s pet peeves, about what environment won’t work for them. Sometimes they disqualify themselves without realizing it, because they reveal they don’t really want the job." —Tom Ogletree, director of social impact, General Assembly

For me the number thing to hire right is motivational fit... a person can have all the crendtials but if they don't fit into the team, corporate culture thats a long term receive for disaster. While talented people can contribute in the short term , they might do it at the sacrifice of the good team around them.

How To Grow Leadership From Within Your Company

How To Grow Leadership From Within Your Company | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric, may have retired 15 years ago, but his influence in corporate America still resonates. Not only is he known as one of the most successful industrial leaders of the 20th century—most notably increasing the value of GE by 4,000 percent—but he is also a great example of how a company can effectively grow powerful leaders from within their own ranks.

 

Welch, who graduated with a Ph.D. in chemical engineering, joined GE in 1960 as a junior chemical engineer. After a year with the company, Welch began seeking other jobs until a mentor in the company’s executive office recognized Welch’s talents and persuaded him to remain at the company. Just seven years later, Welch was appointed vice president of GE’s plastics division, and the climb up the corporate ladder continued. In 1981, Welch became GE’s youngest chairman and CEO.

 

As with GE and many other companies—Xerox, Harley-Davidson, Best Buy and McDonald’s— the next CEO of your company could very well be among your current employees. In fact, in a Forbes study of America’s 100 largest companies, 86 percent of CEOs were appointed from within company ranks. Your executive leadership most likely will be, too. Here are three ways to grow strong leadership from within your company.

Letting go is a practice that takes time and patience. However, once you make it into a habit you will have much better relationships with yourself and with others. This is the essence of what it means to improve your relationships, because when you improve the relationship with yourself you also improve your relationships with others. Finally, I want to leave you with one of my favorite quotes; “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be” – Lao Tzu.

Does Your Company's Purpose Resonate With Everyone, Or Just Senior Leaders?

Does Your Company's Purpose Resonate With Everyone, Or Just Senior Leaders? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Discovering your company's "purpose" is tough. Sustaining it can be even tougher. Even if you've zeroed in on a mission that your executives love, it won't do your company much good if the rest of your team doesn't share the same sentiment.

 

The challenge is to make sure your entire organization is willing to buy into its stated purpose. The consulting firm Radley Yeldar, which ranks brands according to "social purpose," gives the top spot to Unilever for its sustainability efforts, among other causes beyond the company's bottom line to which it has shown commitment.

Great leaders exhibit their experience, accomplishments, and intelligence in their work by showing humility. They do not go around telling everyone repeatedly about themselves. What makes a good leader different? Not the types who like to progress by pulling the legs of others to make them fall down and lag behind. By communicating with everyone and letting them know their importance, you are also signifying that you’re open to discussions and always willing to listen and accept when you’re wrong as well.

The man who advised presidents from both ends of the political spectrum understood that it is the ordinary people whose concerns must matter. Gardner’s uncommon common touch allowed him to relate to everyman. He was far from the politico who so often fills the headlines and the television screen. John Gardner knew that humility was the key to leadership of the kind that produces enduring results. It’s a quality that appears often in his book On Leadership, in which he distilled his experiences in political life and compelled readers to think about what constitutes true leadership. The author was not afraid to mention humility as a necessary trait in leaders across the board. Neither was this emeritus professor of business ashamed to quote the Bible. With insight he wrote, “Jesus not only comforted the afflicted but afflicted the comfortable.”

5 Signs That You've Fallen Into The Trap Of Parent-Child Leadership

5 Signs That You've Fallen Into The Trap Of Parent-Child Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Today’s managers talk a lot about wanting employees to be more accountable and to act on their own initiative. And yet, those same managers turn around and say to employees: “I have to give you assignments; I have to give you feedback; I have to hold you accountable.” This leaves employees, much like children, left to take feedback, to take assignments and to passively wait to be held accountable.

Today’s top-performing organizations are leaving this style of Parent-Child leadership behind and replacing it with a new model of leadership that treats employees like adults who have unlimited potential and who deserve the opportunity to take control of their own futures. Establishing an Adult-to-Adult dynamic encourages employees to become self-leading and self-sufficient and results in a more motivated, fulfilled and energized workforce. Employees are more aligned with their organization’s vision and more committed to helping the organization achieve that vision.
