The Role of Leaders in Helping Others Find Meaning at Work | INSEAD | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

"it is critically important that leaders find ways to help all of their employees connect or re-connect to what is important, to a purpose, to our universal search for meaning.

And just as importantly, leaders need to re-connect with their own sense of purpose to be able to continue to fuel their own inner fire."


4 criteria are listed

The work has an important impact on the well-being of human beingsThe work is associated with an important virtue or personal valueThe work has an impact that extends beyond the immediate time frame or creates a ripple effectThe work builds supportive relationships or a sense of community in people

10 Steps To Effective Listening

10 Steps To Effective Listening | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems. Listening builds friendships and careers. It saves money and marriages.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 6, 6:27 AM

Taking steps to tame complexity of a system are meaningless without also addressing incentives and culture, since people will inevitably drive a safer car more dangerously. To tackle this, organizations must learn to improve the “cognitive diversity” of their people and teams — getting people to think more broadly and diversely about the systems they inhabit.


Complexity was the theme of the 2013 Global Drucker Forum in Vienna. You can find a series of perspectives here.

It’s about doing what you can, when you can, where you can to add a little magic to the moment by making the most of opportunities to guide, inspire, and be helpful in a way that willfully does for others what you would like others to do for you—one opportunity to set an example worth emulating at a time.”

Leaders that try too hard to win people over are the ones that end up losing the respect of their employees – especially when it’s not genuine.    The most memorable leadersknow how to naturally make a good first impression. They are mindful of what most employees do and don’t expect of them and want to create for them a safe environment that enables engagement.   Leadership success is all about people and when leaders forget this fact, they are headed down a path of self-destruction.

As Work Gets More Complex, 6 Rules to Simplify

Why do people feel so miserable and disengaged at work? Because today's businesses are increasingly and dizzyingly complex -- and traditional pillars of management are obsolete, says Yves Morieux. So, he says, it falls to individual employees to navigate the rabbit's warren of interdependencies.



Via Kenneth Mikkelsen

Kudos's curator insight, April 5, 11:45 AM

I have always been a big fan of simplicity.

 

It seems to be human nature and the desire of MBA's to want to complicate things by trying to measure everything with the false illusion we can then improve and tweak things to make a thousand process improvements that matter. In the end, we often measure things that do not really matter in the big picture. Think of all the layers of middle management that get added to manage, measure and track things that do not matter.  

 

Measuring some things is essential. Sales, Profits, Engagement. Those are the only measures that matter at the end of the day. And processes are are also essential but like the old saying - everything in moderation.

 

I liked the key message that Cooperation is secret to success. We build walls with too many processes. We need to keep people close to one another and aware of their interdependency and effect on one another so they think about how their actions and output effect other peoples outcomes and output.

 

If you connect people to solve problems through cooperation, you will get innovation and the the results you are looking for. Instead of trying to make everything easier by adding processes and layers, it better to make things harder by forcing people to cooperative verses work around one another with only their goals and objective in mind.

 

I see this in the struggle between design. programming and admin (Sales, Customer Service) all the time in the agencies and companies I have been part of.

 

- Programming wants things to be efficient and streamlined based on their sensibilities. 

- Design wants to create exceptional user experiences and artful design based on their sensibilities.

- Admins wants things to be simple and effective based on their sensibilities.

 

People always want things done their way based on their sensibilities and that can lead to low cooperation.

 

I will often hear when I ask for something - "that is not possible". Then then next questions I ask is "do you mean impossible or difficult" and the answer is always difficult. Then their is a discussion, some cooperation and often a compromise. The outcome is a better product, better service and 9 times out of 10 difficult was not so difficult after all.

 

If you keep everyone close to the product, customer and  one anther they will cooperate and compromise and that keeps things more simple.

 

The only problem with simple is... it is hard to keep things simple. Back to human nature an MBA's. 

 

In the spirit of keeping things simple, every employee manual in the world only needs these three words.

 

"Make Good Decisions"

 

Only if it was that simple. :)

While there are many models of leadership, we inevitably return time and again to those with emotional intelligence at the core when working with groups and individuals who wish to inspire and motivate others. The work of James Kouzes and Barry Posner in this area is a very good place to begin. Both highly regarded academics, it is the basis in research that makes the work of Kouzes & Posner, outlined in their book The Leadership Challenge, so well respected. Over the past thirty years the co-authors have carried out surveys and interviews with over 60,000 leaders from every industry and background and identified five practices that outstanding leaders use consistently when dealing with others.
