Cynthia McCauley’s Manual for Leadership Development

Cynthia McCauley’s Manual for Leadership Development | Building Future Leaders | Scoop.it
The leadership scholar explains why measurable, experience-based programs are key to helping executives develop their potential.
Terry Finerty's insight:

Good article on the importance of using experience-based learning for effective leadership development. In addition, would add emphasis to the value of a 'plan-do-review' group with peers - creating a support network that shares insights and learnings from projects, as well as holding one another accountable to their development commitments for each project.

Simon Sinek: How Extraordinary Leaders Evolve

Simon Sinek: How Extraordinary Leaders Evolve | Building Future Leaders | Scoop.it

Leadership writer and top TED speaker Simon Sinek explains how great leaders create a circle of safety for their teams.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Terry Finerty's insight:

An interesting perspective from Simon Sinek.  Totally agree with the view on the "bottom 25%" etc.  And agree as well with the service perspective - seeing service as self interest.  

 

I also am attracted to the type of organisation I imagine would follow.  However, there may be limits to how far this is a robust approach rather than a perspective of value in certain circumstances or frames.  

 

One, I'm not 100% sure we know how society originally evolved and if the assumptions and rules are really down to evolution and biology. Secondly, I can see how taking the right decisions may be part of "extending the circle" but at times the organisation can only survive for most by having some areas of reduction and tough decisions.  This may not lead to everyone feeling safe, but if done honestly there will still be trust.  

 

And there will be times where individual leaders don't sacrifice themselves.

 

None the less I think there's a valuable perspective here and I like how it fits to my understanding of some of Peter Block's work.

Great video!

Tom Hood's curator insight, August 2, 2013 6:58 AM

Sinek does it again - from the "golden circle" of "why" to the "circle of safety" for making an extraordinary organziation that can execute your why.

 

The circle of safety is about engagement, empowerment, and protection of your team. Do you just protect the senior team in your organziation or do all of your people feel safe and able to make decisions?

 

Another inspirational talk from Simon Sinek. Worth a reaad and watch.

"Greatness" by David Marquet

Captain David Marquet's talk on Greatness. It illustrates how he took a nuclear submarine from the worst performing ship with the lowest moral in the US Navy and turned it into the highest graded ship ever.

Terry Finerty's insight:

Great practical guidance on the secret of balancing need for co-ordination with decision making where information is richest - at the coal face.

Okay - teach a man to fish and empowerment and mentoring people leads to engagemnet and  that leads to success. Love those videos. Entertianing. Add this to the Fish pholisophy concpets you have full enagegment. Remnds me of the saying surround yourself with smarter poeple then yourself. Maybe the truth is more about giving people the authority and information to do their job. Then they make good decsion and that makes you look smart becasue they are smart.
