Change #leadership: how to give employees a sense of control

Change #leadership: how to give employees a sense of control | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

The critical factor when it comes to deciding on or agreeing to doing anything differently (this is a simple definition of change), is that there is usually something beneficial in it producing a co-created outcome.

Put simply; draw your leaders out so they understand not only the reasons for change, but also how they can influence the way that change is implemented - this will mean they feel part of the solution.

The same goes for bringing about change within the team; really involve them, talk to them at length, listen to them at length, ask for their solutions and find ways of incorporating their ideas for the changes needed, as well as good reasons as to why some of their ideas may not be applicable.

When we are asked to change things in a wholesale manner, it is daunting and overwhelming. The example of changing my golf swing resonated. I did that several years ago and it was a terrible experience. Once I adjusted, it worked well. Teachers given small bites of change and taking on some leading might manage those changes better

Inspirational leaders recognize the need to pick their moments carefully to reinforce a performance culture in a way that can also be inspiring. These are real moments of leadership and truth.
 
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 27, 1:45 PM
If I apply this to teaching, it would focus on a question: "Which teacher inspired me? How did they make me feel?" For me, those teachers stood out for some particular reason that was singular to them and me. On the other hand, they may not have been each student's cup of tea.

Most coaches work one on one with clients, but at times coaches are also hired to facilitate team performance when people come together to accomplish shared goals, make decisions, or learn new skills.

Having a coach who is pulling for the good of not only the team but also each team member can help keep the agreed-upon common purpose and desired outcomes top of mind all along the way.

When coaching in a team setting, focus on three objectives:

Setting clear expectations, rallying people around KPIs they believe in, developing a peer accountability and speak your mind when you see poor performance are a few ways around it..... either way its up to YOU the leader to handle it .

Running Effective Meetings: Establishing an Objective and Sticking to It

Running Effective Meetings: Establishing an Objective and Sticking to It | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

There are good meetings and there are bad meetings. Bad meetings drone on forever, you never seem to get to the point, and you leave wondering why you were even present. Effective ones leave you energized and feeling that you've really accomplished something.

So what makes a meeting effective? This really boils down to three things:

They achieve the meeting's objective.
They take up a minimum amount of time.
They leave participants feeling that a sensible process has been followed.
If you structure your meeting planning, preparation, execution, and follow up around these three basic criteria, the result will be an effective meeting.

Developing Resilience: Overcoming and Growing from Setbacks

Developing Resilience: Overcoming and Growing from Setbacks | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

According to legend, Thomas Edison made thousands of prototypes of the incandescent light bulb before he finally got it right. And, since the prolific inventor was awarded more than 1,000 patents, it's easy to imagine him failing on a daily basis in his lab at Menlo Park.

In spite of struggling with "failure" throughout his entire working life, Edison never let it get the best of him. All of these "failures," which are reported to be in the tens of thousands, simply showed him how not to invent something. His resilience gave the world some of the most amazing inventions of the early 20th century, such as the phonograph, the telegraph, and the motion picture.

Learn from your mistakes and failures. Every mistake has the power to teach you something important; so don't stop searching until you've found the lesson in every situation. Also, make sure that you understand the idea of "post-traumatic growth" – there can be real truth in the saying that "if it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger."

How Can You Spot a Really Good Leader? They Do Any of These 7 Things Daily

How Can You Spot a Really Good Leader? They Do Any of These 7 Things Daily | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Can you imagine working for someone in a high-level leadership role, perhaps a CEO, and suddenly it dawns on you: This person isn't leadership caliber.

Your next thought may be, How in the world did he (or she) make it this far up the ladder?

It's a fair question. People are promoted into leadership roles every day who have no business belonging there.

Sometimes it's political; other times it's the easier choice--promote from within and avoid the high cost of recruitment--but a bad choice, nonetheless.

The biggest challenge leaders face is performing to the set standards of the best in the business. This means raising the bar really high--as the ten hugely successful CEOs I wrote about recently have done.

In the end, you'll find the leadership journey is predicated on two things that drive success: Results and relationships. You can't have results at the expense of people. And serving your tribe well without getting results is merely putting lipstick on a pig.

www.inc.com provide us with some useful ideas here about what 'really good' leaders to at work.  I've been thinking about the strategies offered; 1. giving feedback 2. regular team planning sessions 3. conducting stay interviews 4. recognition & appreciation 5. freedom to make decisions 6. allowing people to take on new responsibilities 7. open-door policy.  All of these rely on the fundamentally critical technical skill of being able to give and receive feedback and the heart-connected qualities that allow people to thrive because you want them to do their best.  For me, really good leaders empower people to succeed.  Allowing freedom is great, but to do this without building trust and sound relationships first, could be an action taken too soon. Interesting topic!
