Striving for Authority - Godin

Striving for Authority - Godin | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Authority is recognizability and trustability.

My neighbor has authority, at least when he’s talking about what’s going on with our block. The local weatherman, by dint of his being hired by someone with an FCC license, has authority, but not about investments, just about the weather.

Obvious, of course.

What’s not obvious is the discipline necessary to earn authority. Now that you can’t be given it, now that you can’t take, now that you have to EARN it, it seems to me that many of us have forgotten that there’s a cost to earning something.

How Bosses Can Make or Break Leadership Development Programs

How Bosses Can Make or Break Leadership Development Programs | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
CCL’s study of leadership development program alumni found the degree of support from participants’ bosses for their development activities made a significant impact on several outcomes. Selfawareness, leadership capability, leadership effectiveness, and engagement were
all significantly improved when participants had the support of their bosses.

For organizations investing in the development of their people—whether individual contributors or c-suite executives—this research means that participant engagement with a leadership development program is not the only factor influencing outcomes. Maximizing the value of leadership development initiatives requires organizations and their training and development partners to constructively engage bosses as well as participants.

This has important implications for individual leadership development program design as well as broader organizational and leadership development efforts. Companies are increasingly requiring a clear return on investment from leadership development programs and looking for ways to ensure such initiatives have a sustained impact. Engaging bosses is a key ingredient in that effort.

How to create a Learning Culture and help your organization grow

How to create a Learning Culture and help your organization grow | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
You can’t touch it, or smell it, or taste it. But you know it’s there.

It’s like a feeling, an energy, something that moves you to act without predetermination or intention.

And no, it’s not your favorite Beatles song, making you tap your foot to the rhythm like a puppet on a string. We’re talking about something far more powerful, and slightly more constructive.

We’re talking, of course, about organizational culture.

Organizational What?

Initially sidelined as a ‘wishy-washy HR concept’, organizational culture has earned its recognition as one of the most influential assets an organization can possess today.

A unique, immeasurable combination of the shared intellect, informal habits, attitudes and knowledge that shape how you do business. Like an invisible perfume scenting every team, process, and task.

And because it’s intangible, organizational culture is one of the few assets that are inimitable. Unlike technologies, ideas, and skills, which are frequently copied by the competition, this asset remains unique to the business in which it lives. A key competitive advantage.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

I teach coaching skills to leaders.

MBAs as CEOs: Some troubling evidence | Henry Mintzberg

MBAs as CEOs: Some troubling evidence | Henry Mintzberg | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Business schools have become enormously successful, in some respects deservedly so. They do a great deal of significant research (Harvard now especially so). In universities, they are centers of interdisciplinary work, bringing together psychologists, sociologists, economists, historians, mathematicians, and others. And their MBA programs do well in training for the business functions, such as finance and marketing, if not for management. So why do they persist in promoting this education for management, which, according to mounting evidence, produces so much mismanagement?

The answer is unfortunately obvious: with so many of their graduates getting to the “top”, why change? But there is another answer that is also becoming obvious: because at this top, too many of their graduates are corrupting the economy.7

The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive | Fast Company | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

You’re a pretty rational person, or so you think: You’re often good at thinking logically and keeping your feelings out of it, right?

Wrong. (Sorry!) It wasn’t long ago that people believed emotions and logic were two completely separate things, operating independently of one another. But breakthroughs in brain science have made it clear that that’s far from true. It turns out that our brains are incapable of making fully unemotional decisions. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. In fact, you can use that cognitive reality in your favor to build relationships, network, and gain influence.

These ridiculously simple brain hacks can subtly encourage people to decide in your favor.

Vanessa Ong Li Wen's curator insight, March 19, 12:14 PM
I agree that at times, we need to angle our argument that targets one’s emotional capacity so as to strengthen the message we are trying to convey and be more persuasive. Although logic is an important factor in allowing people to understand what you are trying to say, simply informing them and convincing them are two separate matters. In essence, using positive emotions to encourage people to believe in you is the right way to go. Once they feel that they have established the connection with you, they will naturally be more inclined to believe whatever it is you are trying to say.

How To Ask Radically Candid Questions

How To Ask Radically Candid Questions | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Kim Scott, the author of Radical Candor, Be a Kickass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity, knows it can be painful to be a boss, especially when you have to fire someone.  Getting fired is painful, even traumatic.  It can cause financial hardship and damage a person’s self-confidence.  Scott knows the power of asking the right questions when making a tough decision like this.

She recalls having to fire an employee who wasn’t performing as expected and whom she liked personally.  She was nervous when the meeting started.  Then it got worse.  After she said he had to leave the company, this soon-to-be former team member, asked “Why? You never told me I wasn’t measuring up.”

Scott who has managed teams at Google, Apple and Silicon Valley startups, realized he was right.  Why hadn’t she told him?

The leadership manifesto: developing leaders at all levels

The leadership manifesto: developing leaders at all levels | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Thee concept and nature of leadership has probably never been more debated than it is now. Last year saw Theresa May take over as PM in the UK after David Cameron stepped down, while the US elected a new President  - where his opponent criticised him for having no prior political experience.
 
The debate around leadership looks set to continue. Trump’s inauguration dominates headlines, Northern Ireland’s deputy first minister has resigned, meaning an assembly election is inevitable, and the French Presidential elections are set for May.

These political upheavals have repercussions across the world of business. Redrawing the next 12 months and beyond will present uncertain and potentially challenging times, but businesses who are themselves able to ensure they have trustworthy, capable and confident leaders in place will be able to navigate this uncertainty and even thrive.

A Balanced Scorecard for Leaders

A Balanced Scorecard for Leaders | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
The prevailing logic is that leaders are responsible for results. Therefore we should evaluate leaders as follows:

Good results = good leader
Average results = average leader
Bad results = bad leader

But not very accurate.

Good leaders will sometimes fail.

Bad leaders do sometimes succeed.

Working with your Leadership Vision  

Working with your Leadership Vision   | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

A vision is your overview of the way things could be.  It is your clear image of what you are working towards.  In your role as a leader, you can see how things could be improved and made better.  Putting all these pieces together in a format of how things should be will give you your overall leadership vision that helps you to get your ideas across powerfully, accurately, and quickly.  Once you have a vision, you tell people about it and use it to lead people.

Daniel Tremblay's curator insight, March 16, 8:14 AM
"Effectively communicating the vision means living the vision; that means doing what you say and practicing what you preach."

One thing is not clearly stated in the article.  The vision has to be communicated with our heart and soul; not only with our head.  As en employee, we must FEEL that the vision is sincere, genuine, authentic, ...  We must BELIEVE in what the leader says (and not only understand what he is saying).  Without the personnal involvement from the leader, the vision communicated may remain only bla bla bla.

Combien de fois voyons-nous des situations où les "bottines ne suivent pas les babines"...  Ou qu'on ne sent pas l'authenticité derrière le message...
donhornsby's curator insight, March 20, 8:47 AM
Sharing a vision is a central role of a leader – a leadership vision gives people a viewpoint, something to work towards and an idea of what things can be like. It helps people raise their hopes and expectations; it inspires them. When people are inspired, they are more likely to consistently work on something.
