9 qualities to Build an Agile Leader's Toolkit - Adapt to Sustain

9 qualities to Build an Agile Leader's Toolkit - Adapt to Sustain | Change Management Resources |

"Nine (9) agile leader qualities are listed and explained as a leader / culture toolkit for sustainable leadership practices as well as a checklist."

Along with Drucker's "there's no such thing as leadership" article that is getting some attention, this list is also useful for followers, staffers and for examining culture and values.  In my own experience with leader competencies, flexibility and adaptability is key to being ABLE to change, the core of sustainability. ~ Deb


Elaine Rumboll suggests:

  1. Adaptability
  2. Back Up
  3. Curiosity
  4. Diversity
  5. Ease of Access
  6. Foresight
  7. Grace in Failure
  8. Hubs
  9. Inclusiveness

The first in the list, Adaptability (Flexibility) is defined to:

  • be ready to change our plans when they are not working the way we expected
  • create alternatives to be ready to change course mid direction
  • build a healthy robustness around how we are going to react
  • [let go of] things remaining stable

Web over Wheels: Change in Trends, Connectivity rules as "Manager Knows Best" era is ending

Web over Wheels:  Change in Trends, Connectivity rules as "Manager Knows Best" era is ending | Change Management Resources |
To get a glimpse of what tomorrow's young global managers might be like as leaders, take a look at how today's young people think about communications.

A sign of a helpful, trusted advisor is to ask smart questions.  This article does that.

The trends, surveys mentioned are also harbingers of the need for highly adaptable, flexible approaches to managing and leading in an era of continuous change.

Excerpted, HBR blogs, Sujai Hajela, VP & general manager of the Wireless Networking Business Unit at Cisco:

Today's young people are devoted to connectivity.

In a recent survey of more than 2,800 college students and young professionals in 14 countries, Cisco found that more than half said they could not live without the internet, and if forced to choose, two-thirds would opt to have the internet rather than a car.

Companies will need to ask these hard questions:

  • What is the appropriate level of openness? Should employees be prevented from slamming their bosses' ideas, for example?
  • How much blurring of public and private life is too much?
  • Social media encourages people to mix work- and nonwork-related communication, but some workers prefer to keep their social lives strictly off-limits.
  • How can the company prevent abuse of social media?  (DN: Or mitigate, educate to help prevent abuse.)
  • Do employees understand what information is confidential and what is public?

As companies resolve these issues, management styles will evolve.

Managers will no longer be able to communicate with just a small circle of trusted advisers — they'll be expected to interact digitally with a much broader range of people both inside and outside the company.
