"First, I don’t think your front line supervisors are intentionally subverting your lean initiative. Nor do I think that your front line supervisors are naturally inclined to resist your lean initiatives. In my own experience, they tend to be very supportive of lean concepts and tools. But your supervisors, over the years, have probably learned some behaviors that don’t fit well with lean practices.

The Four Kinds of Burning Platforms | Conner Partners

The Four Kinds of Burning Platforms | Conner Partners | Business change | Scoop.it

I promised to curate the next article by Daryl Conner on the four types of burning platforms stories and how they are used in org change work. Well, here it is -- and it is really good.

Any leader, business, or consultant needs to know the particulars in this article. Here is a sneak preview -- the burning platforms stories are NOT really about creating urgency for change.

I appreciate Daryl for clearing up these misconceptions about this story. And don't forget to read his first blog post about the burning platform that I curated below.

Billy R Bennett's curator insight, December 11, 2012 9:01 PM

Karen Dietz curated this article by Daryl Conner on four types of burning platforms.  A burning platform is a concept leaders use to define the reason for change.  As Daryl points out this may be based on a negative problem  based appeal or a positive, future opportunity.


Which is better?


Research on personal change has reported greater long term success with positive images.    In most serious change projects, we usually use both. 


You cannot and should not hide business challenges from employees.  


However, once they understand the challenge they will then want to hear your reasoning about why they should consider giving more of themselves to the organization.   I would make it good.

Five Go-To’s For Discovering Your Inner Leadership Self

Five Go-To’s For Discovering Your Inner Leadership Self | Business change | Scoop.it

In the forward to Bill George’s book True North, David Gergen shares, “what ultimately distinguishes the great leaders from the mediocre are the personal, inner qualities – qualities that are hard to define but are essential for success, qualities that each of us must develop for ourselves.”

 

How can leaders develop these inner qualities that are essential to great leadership? There is not a clear-cut recipe, path, or leadership development program that will guarantee results to develop these qualities. However, much of the current leadership research and trends propose that the path begins with an examination of yourself and your inner qualities. Great leaders need to know themselves first before they can effectively lead others. Common character themes and traits stand out among great leaders and words such as authenticity, integrity and trustworthiness describe their character traits.

 

After much reading and reflection I have been inspired to examine myself, and have attempted to discover the inner qualities that help to define my own leadership development and to apply what I have learned.

True Leaders Create Conversations Around Core Ideas, Agendas & Solutions

True Leaders Create Conversations Around Core Ideas, Agendas  & Solutions | Business change | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Eric Fletcher he says:

 

"Leaders encourage dialogue and collaboration, leading to the identification of common experiences and shared aspirations"

 

Here are the highlights:

 

**Real leadership, in any venue, brings perspective, dialogue and collaboration in measure equal to or greater than individual conviction.

 

**while the dialogue may be disconcerting at times, the progress of a team, an enterprise or any diverse community depends on the honest dialogue and collaborative spirit that leads to the identification of common ground.

 

**Perhaps even shared experiences and unifying aspirations.

in search of leadership that will make a difference?

 

**Don’t be seduced by charisma. Find someone unafraid of the tough conversations, skilled as a listener, and relentless in the pursuit of dialogue.
