Insights Vs. Organizations: how organizations reduce insights

Insights Vs. Organizations: how organizations reduce insights | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Most organizations claim—and sincerely believe—that they want to increase insights and put them to use. We shouldn’t let that sincerity fool us.

Go Hard on the Issue, Soft on the Person – 5 Leadership Ideas | Thin Difference

Go Hard on the Issue, Soft on the Person – 5 Leadership Ideas | Thin Difference | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

This statement is a challenge: “I try to go hard on the issue and soft on the person.” Leadership, character, and integrity are skills required to keep focus.

 

5 leadership ideas:

 

Idea 1: Balance the emphasis on the issue with showing empathy to the person.

Idea 2: Focus on the right words – speaking and hearing.

Idea 3: Be fully present.

Idea 4: Keep repeating – solve the issue, solve the issue, solve the issue.

Idea 5: Let go.

The Complexity of Complexity

The Complexity of Complexity | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
It’s not enough to say your organization is simple or complicated—you must also understand what kind of complexity you’re dealing with.

Sense making is a critical leadership capability - occupies much of my coaching time.

Quote: "Rather than settling for simplistic representations of reality, leaders must continually work to provide clarity on the complexity, particularly along three lines: purpose, values, and performance."

... and COMITANS may help you in understanding the kind of complexity you are dealing with.

Management Is (Still) Not Leadership

Management Is (Still) Not Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Insight from John Kotter about the difference between leadership and management.

 

The mistakes people make on the issue are threefold:

 

Mistake #1: People use the terms "management" and "leadership" interchangeably. This shows that they don't see the crucial difference between the two and the vital functions that each role plays.

 

Mistake #2: People use the term "leadership" to refer to the people at the very top of hierarchies. They then call the people in the layers below them in the organization "management." And then all the rest are workers, specialists, and individual contributors. This is also a mistake and very misleading.

 

Mistake #3: People often think of "leadership" in terms of personality characteristics, usually as something they call charisma. Since few people have great charisma, this leads logically to the conclusion that few people can provide leadership, which gets us into increasing trouble.

QUESTION: Do you know the difference?

Thank YOU!

Really clear, short article from John Kotter.  The 3 mistakes highlighted have caused enormous amount of damage, particularly the 3rd mistake, thinking of leadership in terms of personality characteristics.
