Turn the Organizational Pyramid Upside Down?

Turn the Organizational Pyramid Upside Down? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

"Too many leaders have been conditioned to think of leadership only in terms of power and control,” says best-selling business author Ken Blanchard in the July/August issue of Chief Learning Officer magazine. “But there is a better way to lead—one that combines equal parts serving and leading. This kind of leadership requires a special kind of leader—a servant leader.”

In this model, leaders have to be prepared to play two different roles in the organization.

We've all worked for someone we didn't like before, whether it's because we didn't trust them, they threw their employees under the bus, said "go" instead of "let's go," or because they were just negative and condescending.

How To Know When You Need A Mental Health Day

How To Know When You Need A Mental Health Day | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

If we treated mental health more like physical health, no one would question why you'd need a day off from work to take care of yourself.


Mental health is just as important as your physical health when it comes to your overall well-being. If you don’t proactively address your mental health, you won’t be able to perform at your best. That’s why it’s a good idea to give yourself a day off from time to time to relax your mind.


Here’s how to know when you need a mental health day.

The Power of Clear Expectations—Identifying What and Who

The Power of Clear Expectations—Identifying What and Who | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?

Each of these one-word questions can push organizational leaders and their team members toward the clarity they need to achieve success. In this post I’d like to focus on who and what.

When leaders set clear expectations, outcomes are much more likely to hit the mark. And it’s just as important for leaders to set milestones en route to the outcome. Doing so keeps people on track by helping them get the support and redirection they need when they need it, which sets them up for success so that they do their best work and hit their deadlines.

Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
By challenging the assumption that every child growing up today is a one-size-fits all digital native, we can make sure each of them can find their own way to relate to technology — whether using it to accomplish basic tasks or to create new technologies and worlds. Being aware of our kids’ differences now is what could help keep them from drifting apart.

A much more nuanced view, and one that I appreciate. I have long called so-called digital natives "digital naives" because the majority of kids only know enough about tech to use it to accomplish what they wish to accomplish. Tech does not really come any easier for them. Tech is simply more common to them.

Learning to Teach

Learning to Teach | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

School-based professional development approaches provide an opportunity for teachers to focus more on the needs of their students and as a result they lead to better student performance. This kind of professional development helps to create a culture of learning throughout the whole school. Teachers and school leaders who develop their competences on a regular basis demonstrate to students that learning matters and that school is a place where both students and teachers learn. My personal experience of professional development within my school context revolves around the idea of collaboration and the importance of nurturing values and competencies that go beyond the acquisition of facts or transmission of academic knowledge. If as educators we preach and stand up for active citizenship with all that it encompasses , we have to model a professionally active lifestyle at school, one in which we involve ourselves in projects with our learners, one in which we embark on active research, one in which we collaborate with our peers while allowing learners to see that we are working and creating meaning together.

Return on investment.” When a business has made an (often significant) investment in an employee training and development program, they want to see tangible results. But what type of results should we measure?

Employee training and development is a ‘people’ investment just as much as it’s a ‘cash’ investment. The returns from an organization’s investment in their people can help improve talent recruitment, increase employee retention and engagement, and perhaps most importantly, contribute to a positive work environment.

For the last decade, they did not exist. I felt I was working for someone, not with someone.

Learning new skills can be awkward and uncomfortable. Think back to the first time you interviewed for a job or spoke in front of a group. It’s possible you made some mistakes, but in the long run you grew and developed.

And if you were lucky enough to have someone supporting and partnering with you—someone coaching you through the experience—chances are that support really helped.

In today’s workplace, business leaders are encouraged to coach their direct reports. To do this, leaders must develop a coaching mindset—a mindset that looks for the potential in others.  Here are four ways to get started.
