Two Things Great Leaders Must Do in Turbulent Times

Two Things Great Leaders Must Do in Turbulent Times | Business change | Scoop.it
So is the glass half empty or half full? The truth is, both.

 

So is the glass half empty or half full? The truth is, both.

 

In times like these, leaders must do two things simultaneously:

 

1. Confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they may be.

 

2. Retain faith that you will prevail in the end, regardless of the difficulties.

 

This is what author Jim Collins refers to as “The Stockdale Paradox.” In his book, Good to Great, he tells the story of Admiral James Stockdale, who was a prisoner of war for eight years during the Vietnam War.

Purpose Driven Tribes: Gaining Control & Influence in the Marketplace

Purpose Driven Tribes: Gaining Control & Influence in the Marketplace | Business change | Scoop.it

This piece was brought to my attention by my wonderful friend and colleague, Jennifer Sertl. It was written in April of 2011 by Jay Deragon who is always articulates the present and the future in a way that hopefully expands your awareness which we all need in today's marketplace.

 

Here are some of the highlights:

 

**People are gathering in "tribes" to connect, collaborate, discover and influence change.

 

**Social technology provides people the ability to aggregate around everything and anywhere.

 

**The market sees this and attempts to aggregate self serving tribes but the people have a different purpose & their own tribe

 

**The aggregation of tribes has become the pursuit of the market. Pulling groups and custom networks has become a common practice of the markets managing these tribes with a purpose different than simply gathering of the trade.

 

The evolving dynamics of tribal aggregation are the dynamics that will change the way markets interact with tribes

 

1. Tribes control the message with growing influence over markets

 

2. Tribes have a purpose. Help them fulfill their purpose and just maybe you'll become part of that tribe

 

3. Companies will have to learn that they are not the "connection" to the tribes, internal and external hold the keys to tribal influence

 

4. Tribes do need management, they need tools to accomplish their objectives and will always be self managed

 

5. Tribal leaders are more interested in serving tribe members than themselves.

 

Here is a great takeaway:

 

Seth Godin writes: "Tribe management is a whole different way of looking at it.

 

**It starts with permission, the understanding that the real asset isn't an amorphous brand but is in fact the privilege of delivering anticipated relevant messages to people who want to get them

Six Keys to Changing Almost Anything

Six Keys to Changing Almost Anything | Business change | Scoop.it
Change is hard. New Year's resolutions almost always fail. But at The Energy Project, we have developed a way of making changes that has proved remarkably powerful and enduring, both in my own life and for the corporate clients to whom we teach it.

 

Change is hard. New Year's resolutions almost always fail. But at The Energy Project, we have developed a way of making changes that has proved remarkably powerful and enduring, both in my own life and for the corporate clients to whom we teach it.

 

Our method is grounded in the recognition that human being are creatures of habit. Fully 95 percent of our behaviors are habitual, or occur in response to a strong external stimulus. Only 5 percent of our choices are consciously self-selected.

 

In 1911, the mathematician Alfred North Whitehead intuited what researchers would confirm nearly a century later. "It is a profoundly erroneous truism," he wrote, "that we should cultivate the habit of thinking of what we are doing. The precise opposite is the case. Civilization advances by extending the number of important operations which we can perform without thinking about them."

 

Most of us wildly overvalue our will and discipline. Ingenious research by Roy Baumeister and others has demonstrated that our self-control is a severely limited resource that gets progressively depleted by every act of conscious self-regulation.

From the Battlefield to the Boardroom:  A Navy SEAL's Guide to Business Leadership Success | Business change | Scoop.it

I spent five years as a Navy SEAL supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom and the war on terror. During “capture or kill” missions in Iraq and clandestine operations in Northern Africa, I gained a unique perspective on teamwork, leadership, and what it takes to succeed in a competitive and challenging environment. What I didn’t realize at the time was that my experiences in combat had given me a highly valuable and applicable set of tools that translated well to entrepreneurship and leadership in business.

Wicked Opportunities - A "Different" Innovation Programme | Business change | Scoop.it

"Wicked Opportunities© is a unique innovation program, highlighting the shift to a new landscape and economy of transformative invention. In the Postnormal world of the 21st Century, we have to reframe complexity as the natural order of growth, an empowering tool to be embraced and leveraged for greater opportunity. This in turn calls us to converge the previously siloed disciplines of the industrial age, giving birth to the "sweet spots" that reveal undiscovered and creative concepts, finally solving long-standing problems and seizing what were thought to be unreachable aspirations."  Kedge Principal Frank Spencer

Responding to Complexity and Uncertainty: The Agile Organisation | Business change | Scoop.it

Over the past two decades, management consultants and academics at business schools have increasingly stressed what they view as the rapidly increasing levels of complexity and uncertainty in the environment that all organisations have to respond to and many have labelled these conditions ‘ hyper-competition’ or ‘high velocity competition’. To deal with these conditions, consultants and academics have called for organisations to become ‘agile organisations’.
