Leaders Are Defined by Influence, Not Role - New Study

Leaders Are Defined by Influence, Not Role - New Study | Buss3 emerging markets | Scoop.it

The Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp), a research organization that focuses on the people practices that drive market performance, has released a new report outlining four emerging practices for global leadership development.

 

The report, Next Practices for Global-Minded Organizations (non-members: download a free summary report), explores each of the four practices and features case studies with Molson Coors and FedEx Express.

 

Nearly 1,200 practitioners worldwide were surveyed in partnership with the American Management Association (AMA) and Training magazine as part of an annual study. One of the most noticeable findings was that increasingly, organizations are defining leaders by influence, not organization charts.

70% of organizations considered effective at global leadership development define leaders by the role they play, rather than their job title.

Awesome article on productivity!

Tia Ribary's curator insight, October 29, 2013 1:54 PM

Increasing productivity means you get more with what you have. That's why I love improving efficiency so much. It does the same thing!

 

This article outlines 6 steps business owners and managers can take to do just that: do more with what thay have. And, I'm a bit torn...is #3 or #6 my favorite? They are both highly impacting, and I believe they are often overlooked.

 

My challenge to you: pick just one step to implement and watch how it impacts your business...in a great way!

This article highlights the biggest problem in the American job market today, the skill gap.  People have been told for years that the only way to a good job is to go to college.  This is not always true and this article highlights this.  There are skilled trades out there but no one skilled to do them.  This problem needs to be addressed so that the unemployed work force can be trained to do these types of jobs.  Young people today seem to feel that the only way is a college degree but this article highlights the other paths to work which are through skilled trade labor.  People complain that nothing is made here but there are reasons for that and when companies try to bring industry back to America they encounter the skill gap.

Manufacturing companies have to weigh the pros and cons of outsourcing or staying domestic.  Many companies have chosen profits over quality and safety by outsourcing jobs over the past couple decades.  Outsourcing of jobs is a product of globalization.  However, the internet and other informational resources are also a large part of globalization which have allowed citizens of the United States to be exposed to what is actually happening in these outsourced manufacturing factories (similar to the role photography played in exposing behind-the-scenes truths of the United State's domestic manufacturing during the Industrial Revolution).  The demand for domestic-made products is increasing, and companies are listening.  However, the years that these jobs have been overseas have allowed not only the specialized skills of domestic workers to disappear, but also the creation of stigmas towards these jobs.

Nicole Kearsch's curator insight, September 10, 2014 3:16 PM

This article is quite interesting.  Everyone seems to complain that more product needs to be made in the USA instead of elsewhere in poorer countries.  This company in Minnesota is doing just that.  After receiving complaints about not enough product being made here they decided to leave countries where safety is not such an issue and bring it home.  Now the problem lies with finding skilled workers here.  Being a 'sewer' isn't very glamourous and not appealing to the youth of America.  This being said, it is going to be very difficult to bring jobs back to America when no one here is interested in putting the energy forth to gain the skills needed to hold these positions.

Greg Lustig's curator insight, October 17, 2013 11:22 AM

In order to create a culture of innovation in the workplace,an organization must empower their employees to engage in independent thought processes.In  order to do so, employees must first be fully engaged and vested in the success of their company.Open discussion between all levels of the organization must  be encouraged.Companies need to be transparent in order to make their employees feel that they are an integral part of the business process.Lastly,employees must believe that their opinions matter.

Albert Einstein had it right when he said: “We cannot solve our problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”  With that being said it is time for entrepreneurial and small business owner of companies to step up their innovation creativity.

 

We have big dreamers and ideas that are always seem too left behind. In this article companies and small business revaluated how they allow their employee to make contributes to building a better brand. The question that was explored by most CEO's is, How to make this work environment a more engaging involvement for idea.

 

Well, some companies do this by creating a designated space where employees can be creative. Most office spaces, which are normally a sea of cubicles, have little room physically and emotionally where creativity and innovation can flourish.

 

From a PR stand Point that is brilliant idea because for those companies that still have their employee work in cubicles is only limiting them to that confined space. Also making that change in the office space can build a better bond between employee and employer. Provide an opportunity for employee to shine.

 

In relations to the book this can relate to Chapter 3 employee relations.  Employee Relations involves the body of work concerned with maintaining employer-employee relationships that contribute to satisfactory productivity, motivation, and morale. Essentially, Employee Relations is concerned with preventing and resolving problems involving individuals who arise out of or affect work situations.

 

So for those companies and business that have your employees still concealed to their cubicle and office space re-think and evaluate the amount of new and creative ideas that your employees produce for the better of the company.on page 33 in the Adventure book Kathryn Yates of Watson Wyatt,  stated "that a business function that drives performance and contributes to a company's financial success,".
