Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, July 22, 6:24 AM

All leaders will see life become more chaotic and overwhelming, and their struggles and management will be more visible than ever. Egocentric leaders will have a difficult time evolving, if they even can, and will be unable to thrive in such discomfort. Organizations need to develop leaders who are motivated by altrocentric leadership. They will be better prepared to succeed in 2030 and beyond.

Vision is What Separates Great Leaders - George Ambler

Vision is What Separates Great Leaders - George Ambler | Brave Leadership | Scoop.it
Vision is the foundation of leadership. Whilst leadership starts with being the right person - the character of the leader, great leadership is sustained by a shared and compelling vision. A compelling vision is one that describes who you are, why you exist and the future you want to create.

Leading in the 21st century

Leading in the 21st century | Brave Leadership | Scoop.it

Wharton School professor Michael Useem scopes out the leadership challenges facing executives today:

 

Because the world is now more complicated and more uncertain, I think that on top of always having a great vision there will be a premium on thinking strategically and on being able to come back from setbacks, and maybe above all, on being very good at reading the increasingly ambiguous and uncertain universe we operate in.


Companies probably focus too much on the bottom line, too much on meeting quarterly analyst expectations, and this has cost us companies paying attention to what the country needs or what the world needs or certainly what the community requires.

The Big Lie of Strategic Planning

The Big Lie of Strategic Planning | Brave Leadership | Scoop.it

Discussion in management and board meetings tends to focus on how to squeeze more profit out of existing revenue rather than how to generate new revenue. The principal metrics concern finance and capabilities; those that deal with customer satisfaction or market share (especially changes in the latter) take the backseat.

 

How can a company escape those traps? Because the problem is rooted in people’s natural aversion to discomfort and fear, the only remedy is to adopt a discipline about strategy making that reconciles you to experiencing some angst. This involves ensuring that the strategy-making process conforms to three basic rules. Keeping to the rules isn’t easy-the comfort zone is always alluring-and it won’t necessarily result in a successful strategy. But if you can follow them, you will at least be sure that your strategy won’t be a bad one.

Leadership does have to change. What is interesting is that today, as I looked for dissertation materials on leadership, this idea of a leadership crisis is not new, Many authors and thinkers complained of the same thing in times past. The challenge might be the pace of change is so rapid it presents new challenges.

The Renaissance of Western Politics: The 'Good-enough' Leader ...

The hierarchical and heroic leadership is based on male authority (think Meir, think Thatcher, think Indira Gandhi) and assumes there is but one objectively true social story.

Our notion of brave, doesn't assume hierarchy or heroism in the sense suggested by this article.  Nor can it be a sibling model. For that reason we are amending our strapline.  Brave for us means leading with passion and conviction - and putting self last, like a parent would for a child.
