The Six Key Elements of Strategic Thinking

The Six Key Elements of Strategic Thinking | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
In a time of unprecedented uncertainty in the business landscape, strategic leadership is more critical than ever.

Chad Manske's curator insight, September 6, 2013 3:46 PM

Strategic planning seems to be an undervalued, yet critical, function in today's work environment.  The statistic in this piece, that "according to Chief Executive Magazine, seven out of 10 leaders are not strategic," does not surprise me.  First, there is a paucity of executive education in this are that business schools should be eager to teach.  It is not easy work...frankly, it's very HARD work, yet necessary for the viability and long-term potential of any organization.  In this piece, the author covers the Six Elements of Strategic Thinking including the ability to: anticipate, challenge, interpret, decide, align and learn. While each of these elements has received isolated attention, they become significant in entirely new ways when examined in the context of one comprehensive framework.

7 Signs That You’re Lying

7 Signs That You’re Lying | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
New research by Dr. Leanne ten Brinke at the Haas School of Business suggests that, while most of us have pretty good instincts when it comes to recognizing liars, we hesitate to call out lying in professional environments because we feel guilty for being suspicious. Calling someone a liar for no good reason is a frightening proposition for most.

Dr. ten Brinke’s research points to objective, well-documented physiological and behavioral changes - or “tells” - that we can use to make accurate assessments of other people’s truthfulness. Both her work and that of Dr. William Ury (Harvard) in Getting to Yes, can help us recognize autonomic behaviors in others and ourselves, in order to increase our truthfulness. Here are seven “tells” that may indicate someone is lying:

Why Organizations Need Chief Knowledge Curators 

Why Organizations Need Chief Knowledge Curators  | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
To ensure that his team is always in tune and aligned with a common approach to drive strategic vision, Amazon.com Inc.’s CEO Jeff Bezos created a corporate book club; he requires his team to read books curated by himself. Leaders like Bezos understand how the absence of structured knowledge sharing creates room for unproductive discussions, silos and lack of genuine commitment to the execution effort.

On the other hand, with leader-led knowledge sharing, organizations can influence behavioral shifts that align their vision with those of their employees, customers, stakeholders and communities. Why don’t more leaders adopt this deliberate knowledge sharing to drive business success?

Leaders recognize that effective execution is greater than half of the leadership challenge when it comes to improving performance via strategic change. Too frequently, however, we still seek solutions from the same toolkit, which has not previously delivered results. To drive effective strategy execution, companies need to embrace the potential their leaders have to influence organizational conversations by deliberately curating and sharing knowledge using digital communication channels.

How Did We GET Here? The Mystery of Organisational Culture Transmission

How Did We GET Here? The Mystery of Organisational Culture Transmission | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
So how DOES organisational culture get passed on (or transmitted)?

It is an important question that does not get the attention it deserves. The corporate world is familiar with measures of organisational culture and engagement. Most of Australia’s largest companies have at some point pulled in an external research company to give them a picture of their current organisational culture. Some do it religiously every year to track changes.

These measures are helpful and paint a rich story of the cultural norms that exist. What happens after the report has come out is the sticky bit. Many a large company has received “this years culture score” and the response is somewhat predictable. There are rounds of workshops, pie charts and circumflexes are pawed over, some people get bonuses other lose them and then HR are left holding the baby of “improve the culture”.

Some companies make great use of the data and use it to transform – but others end up thinking “I KNOW this…but what do I DO about it?”. The real question they are asking is: How did we get here and how is the culture continuously transmitted onwards?

Thankfully the fields of sociology, anthropology and psychology have been asking this question for decades. If you start looking harder you find that the famous philosopher – and one of the earliest psychologists – William James was asking this question in the 1850s. Even Charles Darwin himself strayed from naturalism into culture and pondered the way in which his principles of natural selection apply to cultural norms.

All over the world, leaders are using coaching to gain a competitive edge. But does coaching solve every problem one might encounter in the workplace?

“No. It’s not a panacea,” says coaching expert Patricia Overland in an article for Chief Learning Officer. “Determining when coaching is a good investment can be challenging.”

Overland shares a couple of examples from her experience when a leader may not be ready to learn and apply coaching skills. Overland explains that offering coaching without addressing these underlying beliefs is usually a recipe for failure.

Org Physics: How a triad of structures allows companies to absorb complexity

Org Physics: How a triad of structures allows companies to absorb complexity | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
The new, emerging theory of organizations is this: Every organization has three kinds of power, and three forms of leadership, three structures. This is not a menu. There is no decision to make about having all three structures, or not. None of the three structures is optional, or nice to have. They are part of organizational physics - universal laws that apply to every organization, large or small, old or new, for profit or social.

You are not a leader only because of your knowledge or skill. You also have others to bring along with you, so they grow and blossom to support the goals of the organization. Be sure you don’t take for granted what it takes to grow great employees. If necessary, create your own development plan so you will become a superior grower. By the way, farmers who grow seasonal crops don’t take it easy in the autumn and winter. What do you do after the harvest to prepare for the next round?
