Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Career Management | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work | Career Management | Scoop.it

If there’s one thing that we can all agree on it’s that the world of work is changing…quickly. The way we have been working over the past few years is NOT how are we are going to be working in the coming years. Perhaps one of the most important underlying factors driving this change is the coming shift around who drives how work gets done. Traditionally executives would set the rules and pass those down to managers who in turn would pass those down to employees. But as Dan Pink aptly put it, “talented people need organizations less than organizations need talented people.” In other words employees are now starting to drive the decisions and conversations around how work gets done, when it gets done, who it gets done with, what technologies are being used to get it done, etc. The next few years are going to bring about dramatic changes. But why now? What are the key trends that are driving this new future of work? There are five of them - take a look.

Michael Thiel's curator insight, September 11, 2014 6:53 AM

In den nächsten Jahren wird sich die Arbeitswelt immer mehr verändern aufgrund der mobilen, globalisierten Welt und des daraus resultierenden erhöhten Bedarfs an kollaborativen Verhaltensweisen. Diese Veränderungen rufen nach Führungskompetenzen, die vernetztes, kooperatives Denken in den Vordergrund stellen und Führung als komplexen Prozess betrachten.

Madeline Harris's insight:

Ok, so how true is this really?  Sure it would be nice to have an interview based on a "performance test", but is that really better than the traditional interview?  For some teaching positions, the candidates teach a lesson as part of the interview process; obviously that isn't possible in the summer but still a good idea.

 

What do you think the pros and cons for the performance-based interviewing would be?

To Grow Your Career | Leave the Attitude at the Door

To Grow Your Career | Leave the Attitude at the Door | Career Management | Scoop.it

"I frequently tell our interns and young professionals that skills can be taught, but a positive attitude can’t."

 

"For this reason, it’s so important to bring your best self to work every day."

 

"Professionals want to work with other nice individuals. It’s difficult to work with negative people."

 

"It makes the work day more challenging, and most businesses have a list of challenging tasks already on their agenda." by Andrea Sabia

streetsmartprof's curator insight, April 1, 2013 9:08 AM

One of the hidden points of the article is hiring managers are trained to look for and hire positive attitude. If you want to grow in your career, your attitude is what people see first and likely remember the most about you.

 

In the article Andrea uses an example of an intern being asked to take care of an adminstrative task. Or she could be discussing an employee with 5 years of experience. The points made are the same.

 

When you are asked to do things you believe are "below your status", what is your response? One word answers or ?

 

In social situations, do you hang out with people who are fun or those who have a negative outlook on life?

 

My style is to join up with people who jump in regardless of what is going to happen and do their best to make it fun.

 

We all know work is work. However, we can have a positive attitude and help make the day go faster. Or we can shrink down inside ourselves and ride out the day. Of course the later will likely hurt any chances of accelerating our career growth and we probably won't have many friends at work.

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, April 1, 2013 9:36 AM

I could not agree more.....Your attitude absolutely determines your altitude!!
