How and Why to Be a Leader (Not a Wannabe)

How and Why to Be a Leader (Not a Wannabe) | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

We need a new generation of leaders. And we need it now. We're in the midst of a Great Dereliction — a historic failure of leadership, precisely when we need it most. Hence it's difficult, looking around, to even remember what leadership is.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, July 8, 2013 12:13 PM

Excerpt from Umair's blog post: 


We're surrounded by people who are expert at winning — elections, deals, titles, bonuses, bailouts, profit. And often, we're told: they're the ones we should look up to — because it's the spoils and loot that really matter.


But you know and I know: mere winners are not true leaders — not just because gaming broken systems is nothing but an empty charade of living; but because life is not a game. It isn't about what you have, and how much — but what you do, and why — if you're to live a life that matters.

Don Cloud's curator insight, August 29, 2013 8:32 PM

Here's a question (asked several different ways) every leader should be able to answer (and if you can't then perhaps this is something you need to think long and hard about).

 

What is your "why"?  That is, "why" do you want to lead?  What is your personal leadership purpose?  What is your individual purpose in leading?

 

If you can't answer the question of your own "why", then you may find it extremely difficult to create the "why" of your organization or understand the individual "why" of each of your people.

 

(Hint: As a leader, try to answer the question without referencing yourself)

Change Management Requires Leadership Clarity and Alignment

Change Management Requires Leadership Clarity and Alignment | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Change management is in full-force across all industries, yet many leaders are unprepared to act upon and operationalize the requirements for change to avoid business disruption. For many organizations, preparedness begins at the top and this means that leadership – across all levels – must have absolute clarity in purpose and focus; there also must be alignment in strategic philosophy and resolution goals.

Unfortunately, many organizations are slow to change as the internal politics makes it difficult to reach consensus across all levels of leadership – even when the necessity for change is urgent. This is why many companies unknowingly lose momentum as they fail to change fast enough -- allowing the marketplace and competitors to pass them by. The result: valuable time is misspent, resources applied and money invested without the required outcomes to stay competitive, keep clients satisfied and employees engaged.

Stefano Principato's curator insight, June 6, 11:40 PM

5 Steps For Repurposing Content

  1. Write: make sure what you have written is original, concise and compelling; then spread the message by publishing it.
  2. Blog: this piece of compelling content should be featured on a blog post, which should act as your strategy’s core; every time you share this content, traffic should be directed to your company’s blog.
  3. Distribute through social media channels: to draw in your audience, share this particular blog post via social media channels (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, etc.).
  4. Repurpose the message: this is your opportunity to transform your original content into a new podcast, YouTube video, etc.
  5. Repeat: Start the process again from step 1; the benefit of practicing this 5-step process is the way you can simply delegate steps 2 to 5 to your marketing team once your original content is settled.


Lee Werrell's curator insight, June 7, 2:06 AM

Content is king and so many people forget this. When you have great content you can repurpose much of it across a spectrum of media providing many ways to reach your market. This infographic gives some great ideas.

#Leaders - Ready or Not, The Workforce is Changing! Are You Prepared?

Generation Y is taking over the workplace and it’s happening sooner than you think. By 2025, they will comprise 75% of the workforce.Due to demographic shifts, including more experienced Baby Boomer workers retiring, it is essential to engage Generation Y now so they are able to fulfill expected talent shortages in the near future. Developing a strong leadership pipeline and expertise are key to business continuity.Unfortunately, many organizations are not prepared to attract, engage, and retain Generation Y employees because they continue to use management practices that are off target.

How to Help an Underperformer

How to Help an Underperformer | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

As a manager, you can’t accept underperformance. It’s frustrating, time-consuming, and it can demoralize the other people on your team. But what do you do about an employee who isn’t performing up to snuff? How do you help turn around the problematic behavior? And how long do you let it go on before you cut your losses?

donhornsby's curator insight, June 25, 1:55 PM

(From the article): Along the way, it’s important to keep what’s happening confidential — while also letting others know you’re working on the underperformance problem. Manzoni admits that this is a tricky line to tow. Don’t discuss the specific details with others, he says. But you might tell them something like: “Bill and I are working together on his output and lately we’ve had good discussions. I need your help in being as positive and supportive as you can.”

Why leadership-development programs fail | McKinsey & Company | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

We’ve talked with hundreds of chief executives about the struggle of creating global leadership development programs, observing both successful initiatives and ones that run into the sand. In the process, we’ve identified four of the most common mistakes:

 

 - Overlooking context

 - Decoupling reflection from real work

 - Underestimating mind-sets

 - Failing to measure results

 

Sidestepping these common mistakes can help companies develop stronger and more capable leaders, save time and money, and boost morale.

(From the article) The Blind CC. Imagine this . . . Someone sends an email to a group and bcc’s someone. Then the bcc’er replies to all, not noticing that they were blind-copied. If you were on the To: or CC: lines, wouldn’t you immediately wonder why the other person was bcc’d to start with? And more importantly, wouldn’t you start to wonder how many times the original person sends emails to you and they are bcc’ing someone else? We all want leaders who are transparent, authentic and genuine – and it seems to me that using the bcc flies in the face of that goal. There might be a time to email something separately to someone and give them additional information or perspective, but why make it a blind copy leaving everyone at risk for miscommunication and misunderstanding?

How awesome is it when you share something online that no one else has? You’ll usually know it’s awesome because you’ll receive re-shares, retweets, likes and comments.

(From the article): The great thing about content curation is that it can help support your social media efforts that require your ”live” attention (ie: conversations and discussions). On some networks, like Twitter, a high frequency of tweets raises brand awareness because you have more of a chance to get noticed in someone’s busy timeline. But let’s be honest, we can not be online 24/7, so content curation comes to the rescue in keeping your social presence up.
