Promoted for Incivility?  

 

In another example, a supervisor that can best be described as a narcissist, would often come into work and fire people just because. One day an employee was touted publicly as an outstanding performer and recognized for their contributions. Approximately two or three days later the employee was terminated.

The Role of Values in Leadership: How Leaders’ Values Shape Value Creation

The Role of Values in Leadership: How Leaders’ Values Shape Value Creation | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

The Pharaohs leading the cadres managing the work teams that built the pyramids understood leadership.

 

The Imperial Emperors knew how to lead the Chinese civil service that held China together for thousands of years.

 

The Moguls of India and their administrators understood how to lead.

 

The Holy Roman Empire needed no leadership books or journal articles.

 

Leadership as practised by the Egyptian Pharaohs and Chinese emperors still lives with us in our language today: “stepping out of line” and “getting the chop” referring to the soldier of the emperor and Pharaohs with a sabre on horseback that would chop off the head of anyone who literally stepped out of the single file line of workers.

Who Can Teach Leadership?

Who Can Teach Leadership? | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Experience is the best teacher, but far from the only one.

 

In my experience best leaders adapt their leadership style to people they manage and fast changes in the economic situation, new technology and markets.

 

I have also observed during my career that if some people can't teach leadership many can't become leaders even with the best teachers.

The Five Top Leadership Blind Spots

The Five Top Leadership Blind Spots | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

An interesting pattern begins to emerge when you look at which issues leaders seem to struggle with clearly identifying as areas of weakness or risk within their organization.

 

Consider them Blind Spots – those unseen things that create danger that we don’t react to until too late. Excelling at never being blind to these issues will clearly make the difference between being average and being great in your career.

Mobile Instructional Design Principles for Adult Learners

Mobile Instructional Design Principles for Adult Learners | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it
White paper based on Capstone Terminal Project of Andrea Dillard, 2012 graduate of the University of Oregon’s Applied Information Management Master’s Degree Program (AIM).

 

The purpose of this annotated bibliography is to examine thirty-one selected references that describe the changes to instructional design principles, which are taking place, or need to take place, as a result of the increased usage of mobile devices. In recent years the technology and tools available for learning have changed dramatically, but teaching and learning methodologies have not significantly changed and traditional educational methodologies have been applied to new delivery methods.

Comfortable with Chaos 15

Comfortable with Chaos 15 | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it
Your career (and your business) is not a 6 lane highway where you can keep speeding in a single direction.

 

It is a curvy road that throws up a lot of unexpected situations. Economic downturns, changes in demand/supply and such uncertainties.

 

You cannot control any of these situations, but how you respond to them is totally in your control.

 

One thing is clear: We need to get comfortable with chaos.

 

Comfortable doesn’t mean that you let chaos happen around you and choose not to respond.

 

Being comfortable with chaos means being more responsive to chaos and creative in spotting opportunities around.

Fighting Back or Playing Nice: How Employees React to Bullying Bosses

Fighting Back or Playing Nice: How Employees React to Bullying Bosses | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

It’s no secret that supervisor aggression is a serious issue facing many organizations with a wide range of consequences from retaliation and turnover to lawsuits. However, little attention has been given to the reasons why employees react differently to perceptions of supervisor aggression.

 

While it is unlikely that all instances of supervisor aggression will completely stop within any given organization, it is possible to help shape how employees will react to those situations. Most research focuses on the deconstructive reactions (e.g., getting even with their boss or taking it out on a co-worker) with less emphasis on the constructive reactions (e.g. finding an effective solution to the problem).

 

So, what factors come into play that causes an employee to have a constructive or deconstructive reaction to their boss’ aggressive behaviors....

Once upon a time: The importance of storytelling in leadership

Once upon a time: The importance of storytelling in leadership | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Stories work for leaders as a successful communication technique for several reasons. Storytelling translates dry and abstract numbers into compelling pictures of a leader’s goals. Stories convey emotion effectively, and emotion united with a strong idea is persuasive. We remember what we feel and our emotions inspire us to take action.

 

 Stories are memorable: research claims that we are up to 22 times more likely to remember a story than a set of disconnected facts.

A federal grant to Texas A&M University may lead to more efficient testing, certification and adoption of improved commercial shrimp fishing gear that will also contribute to the sustainability of the nation’s other fisheries. The Texas Sea Grant College Program’s (TXSG) Gary Graham and Tony Reisinger will use the $83,571 award from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to identify and test promising models of bycatch reduction devices and then choose the designs that are most likely to pass the rigors of full federal certification testing, thus eliminating time and money lost testing designs that fail to meet federal standards.

This revelation led me to staying open to what would fulfill my need to work collaboratively and be able to help more people in my work life. I’ve had a long, rich (and unusual) career in a number of disciplines unrelated to biology, without ever mapping out my career path in detail. Knowing that I was a “people person” seemed to be one of the keys that helped me to thrive.

Sustainability: More than Just Being ‘Green’

Sustainability: More than Just Being ‘Green’ | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

For companies aspiring to help drive solutions to our global environmental challenges, being a trusted and trust-worthy corporate citizen is prerequisite. Links between and among reputation, business success, and sustainability are key in the era of social media, and unethical behaviour can cost. The best and really only way to ensure ethical behavior within a business is to institutionalize it – establishing a culture of “self-governance” through inspiration and leadership.
