Hay Group study of over 300 organizations covering almost 4,500 leaders found that executives still need the most development in competencies such as influence, inspirational leadership, coaching, mentoring and emotional self-awareness – the competencies that are critical for collaboration. Leadership skills and capabilities have not kept pace with the rapid evolution of flatter, more matrixed organizational structures.

Dan Ariely speak about the Cost of the Social Norm which is based on Trust and Social Relationships. The Market Norm is based on Financial Transactions.  When the Social Norm is replaced by the Market Norm he says it is extremely difficult if not impossible to regain the trust.


Trust cannot be bought, it must be earned.


If you lose my trust by your behavior, then I can trust that I cannot trust you.


Lee Thayer speaks of Leadership is a role that one plays. If one plays it well and is had by a vision that may outlast them, then history recognizes them as leaders. Those who we recognize as historical leaders did not have access to the 10,000 books that we have today on Leaderhship, yet what they accomplished was because of their competence at doing what needed to be done to accomplish their leadership role.


As Simon Sinek reminds us:  They had followers.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 15, 2013 4:51 PM

I prefer the word 'mindful' rather than 'thoughtful'. It is a big difference. I see thoughtful as being part of mindful. The author makes a good point about networks and communities being different. This means we can behave and act differently. Networks may or may not be able to hold people to account whereas a community might be able to.

It's the secret to high-performing teams -- and strong marriages.

 

Which is more effective in improving team performance: using positive feedback to let people know when they're doing well, or offering constructive comments to help them when they're off track?

New research suggests that this is a trick question. The answer, as one might intuitively expect, is that both are important. But the real question is — in what proportion?

John Michel's curator insight, April 14, 2013 8:32 AM

Coaches understand that telling a player (or singer, actor, etc.) what to do is not enough. No drama director or soccer coach asks students to sit in the room and explain what to do. They go to the playing environment, demonstrate correct technique and then put the students through multiple repetitions; practice, practice, practice. Repetition ensures that correct technique will become close to automatic when the game is on the line, emotions run high and calm under pressure is required. Coaches are fully aware that knowing what to do is not the same as knowing how to do it.
