3 Innovative 2014 Leadership Trends featuring Fred Keller, CEO of Cascade Engineering, B Corporation leader

3 Innovative 2014 Leadership Trends featuring Fred Keller, CEO of Cascade Engineering, B Corporation leader | BIG DATA | Scoop.it

What innovative leadership methods are being taught in business schools and implemented by CEOs in 2014? Here are three: 1) unlocking hidden strengths, 2) giving second chances and 3) implementing democracy.
 

Excerpts:
 

1. Unlocking hidden strengths


A good example …is in the leadership style of Whole Foods co-CEO Walter Robb. "He draws on individuals' strengths in a way that is firm yet deferential and open," White says. "He's able to be collaborative but is also clear in his directions."

… it hasn't been easy…{but] guess what? …it made our culture more positive throughout...

and it turns out to be good for business."

2. Giving second chances
 

Fred Keller, founder and CEO of Grand Rapids, Michigan-based plastics manufacturing company Cascade Engineering, has led his multimillion-dollar business based on a quote from 18th-century theologian and social reformer John Wesley: "Do all the good you can."
       

Cascade is the largest manufacturing business certified as a B Corporation, which means it has made a commitment to solving social and environmental problems and meets a lengthy set of performance, accountability, and transparency standards.

      

Keller and Cascade's signature program is "Welfare to Career," where the company brings aboard people who have been on government assistance for long periods. Keller says the program has saved the state of Michigan millions of dollars by getting people off the welfare rolls.

     

… it hasn't been easy…{but] guess what? …it made our culture more positive throughout for everyone. And it turns out to be good for business."

….. our employees feel like they contribute more than they ever did at other companies and are a part of a big story."

3. Implementing democracy


Avinoam Nowogrodski, CEO of project-management software company Clarizen, says the command-and-control style of leadership popular in decades past doesn't work for today's business environment. "People want a voice, people want to participate, and this requires democratic principles," he says.


….. our employees feel like they contribute more than they ever did at other companies and are a part of a big story."

These three stories illustrate the changing nature of leadership from the last millennium.  Highly engineered, inflexible, bureaucratic systems are giving way to more systemic, humanistic systems with emphasis on strengths, community and national values, vs. the tunnel vision values of the profit focus of the last century.   ~  Deb
