The Fourth Industrial Revolution: what it means and how to respond

The Fourth Industrial Revolution: what it means and how to respond | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders of the global polity, from the public and private sectors to academia and civil society.

The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production. The Second used electric power to create mass production. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production. Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.

5 Signs That You've Fallen Into The Trap Of Parent-Child Leadership

5 Signs That You've Fallen Into The Trap Of Parent-Child Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Today’s managers talk a lot about wanting employees to be more accountable and to act on their own initiative. And yet, those same managers turn around and say to employees: “I have to give you assignments; I have to give you feedback; I have to hold you accountable.” This leaves employees, much like children, left to take feedback, to take assignments and to passively wait to be held accountable.

Today’s top-performing organizations are leaving this style of Parent-Child leadership behind and replacing it with a new model of leadership that treats employees like adults who have unlimited potential and who deserve the opportunity to take control of their own futures. Establishing an Adult-to-Adult dynamic encourages employees to become self-leading and self-sufficient and results in a more motivated, fulfilled and energized workforce. Employees are more aligned with their organization’s vision and more committed to helping the organization achieve that vision.

How to Successfully Move Into a Strategic Leader Role - Center for Creative Leadership

How to Successfully Move Into a Strategic Leader Role - Center for Creative Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
You want to take that next step…Move from an operational leader to a strategic one.

It can come easy for some, but for most it takes hard work and a new mindset.

If you’re ready to step into a strategic role, or are a manager who is considering which candidate is best for a strategic job, the first thing to remember is that strategic leadership is different from operational leadership.

“The skills that make you a successful operational leader can, in fact, hold you back as a strategic leader,” says CCL’s Kate Beatty, co-author of Becoming a Strategic Leader.

Meeting short-term targets, mastering your functional area and creating stability for focused execution are some of the skills of strong operational leaders.

“Strategic leaders must make decisions that position the business for the future, while meeting current demands,” Beatty continues.

They focus on multiple facets of the business instead of ensuring success in a single area. And, typically, strategic leaders are involved in creating significant organizational change.

Strategic leadership occurs when individuals and teams think, act, and influence others in ways that promote the enduring success of the organization.

(From the article): How can you be more intentional? Hall frames intentionality in her own work in eight words that guide each of her interactions: “I want it to matter that we met.” And it should matter for both her and the person she is meeting. There is an implied flexibility in the time horizon; it may matter immediately or several years down the road. Challenge yourself: “I want it to matter that I hold this position,” or “I want it to matter that I am your boss.” How does this affect how you will show up to deliver short-term results and create long-term impact?

Does the composition of your team reflect the composition of your customer base? Are you spending time with people who are less like you? Are your team members engaged? Are you retaining diverse team members? When you have open positions, are you attracting a diverse candidate pool? Do you have an inclusive environment? If you can answer “yes” to these questions, then you know you’ve successfully built a diverse workforce.
