Teamwork is a frustrating as it is rewarding.  Here are a few insights about how to make the most out of collaboration.  

Rachelle Wooten's curator insight, February 5, 2013 10:07 AM

My favorite quote: "Conflict, when well managed and focused on a team's objectives, can generate more creative solutions than one sees in conflict-free groups."  All too often conflict is avoided maybe because it is poorly managed but if it's focused on team's goal or mission can be most beneficial.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 14, 2013 8:26 AM

(From the article):The hands-on activities of group leaders do make a difference. But the most powerful thing a leader can do to foster effective collaboration is to create conditions that help members competently manage themselves. The second most powerful thing is to launch the team well. And then, third, is the hands-on teaching and coaching that leaders do after the work is underway. Our research suggests that condition-creating accounts for about 60% of the variation in how well a team eventually performs; that the quality of the team launch accounts for another 30%; and that real-time coaching accounts for only about 10%. Leaders are indeed important in collaborative work, but not in the ways we usually think.

Leadership Rituals and the Power of Habit

donhornsby's curator insight, February 3, 2013 9:13 AM

(From the article): Leadership rests on the foundation of rituals, and it is ritual which binds us together, honors our higher intentions, and acknowledges our journey. Your personal rituals -- what you make time for, and what you do not -- become the leadership rituals that define your influence, your style and your legacy. When you decide to have a clean desk, an empty inbox, run every morning, eat more vegetables, you are articulating your values and setting the example for people who work with you. You are creating a set of rituals that give you energy, exert your influence, and shift the way you are perceived.

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, February 4, 2013 11:05 AM

Intention is a key consideration to create a set of rituals that will focus you on your leadership journey. Rituals, rooted in a strong values, can open doors to do more, provide predictability, unleash creativity, inspire others & builds community.

The 8 Types Of Imagination

The 8 Types Of Imagination | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

It has been said that imagination is more important than knowledge, and for any experienced classroom teacher it is easy to see daily evidence of this.

In the blog post, Dr. Murray Hunter of the University of Malaysia Perlis has listed the 8 types of imagination we use on a daily basis, with explanations for each. Dr. Hunter defines imagination as “the ability to form mental images, phonological passages, analogies, or narratives of something that is not perceived through our senses.

(From the article): General McClellan had significant character flaws that I believe serve as warning signs to anyone in leadership. Ultimately, these cost him dearly: He lost Lincoln’s confidence, his job, and a run for the White House (against Lincoln). Worse, they prolonged the Civil War and cost the lives of tens of thousands of soldiers on both sides of the conflict.

 

Here are the five flaws I jotted down as I read the book:

Here are the 5 flaws described in the article regarding a weak leader.  Don't be one!

 

1. Hesitating to take definitive action

2. Complaining about a lack of resources

3. Refusing to take responsibility

4. Abusing the privileges of leadership

5. Engaging in acts of insubordination

Lead Like All Your Employees Are Volunteers

The CEO expects to hemorrhage talent, many of which he expects to be snapped up by his competitors. His question, asked mostly of himself, is, “Why should we train our competition’s talent force?”

Really? That got me to thinking.

 

 

CEO, I’m writing to you. How often have you thought the same thing? Maybe I should rephrase that: How often in a week do you think the same thing?

Beth Kanter's curator insight, January 30, 2013 4:50 PM

Good definition of failure


Failure in the entrepreneurial vernacular is reframed as intentional iteration and experimentation.  It’s not failure in the catastrophic sense.  Failure is simply a portfolio of setbacks, false starts, wrong turns, and mistakes that are expected and tolerated because the entrepreneur purposefully iterates in order to gather new, relevant, and timely information.  Through iteration entrepreneurs seek not to kill an idea but to make it better, and this happens through an anticipated cycle of pivoting and adapting.


Don't use the F word, simply pressing and unimportant.

And I keep going back to it.  In today's economy we all are in sales in one way or another.  Pink helps us think about what we need to be effective. His ABCs are: Attunement, Buoyancy and Clarity. With a solid dose of Pitch and Serve thrown in after .

 

Read this book. Then. Re-read  it.  And check out some of the many links he shares. One led me to Scop.It.
