We don’t need better leaders

We don’t need better leaders | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
Peter Vander Auwera's insight:

"Positional leadership is a master-servant, parent-child, teacher-student, employer-employee relationship. It puts too much power in the hands of individuals and blocks human networks from realizing their potential. In the network era, leadership is helping the network make better decisions"

Don’t let the expression ‘this is just business’ be a synonymous for inhuman.

Don’t let the expression ‘this is just business’ be a synonymous for inhuman. | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
There was no logic, no sense, no reason, certainly no business or organizational reason. This was magical schizophrenic thinking. The only reason why this happened was because of a capricious request from Bigger Power Holder to ‘reorganize’ and give extra troupes to somebody else. Pure currency, bazaar transaction, absolutely nothing that ‘the business’ could gain from.

These kind of situations are not unusual. The music in the background is the same: it’s business, not me. But the situation above had noting to do with business. It was simply the same as street, neighbourhood, territorial distribution between gangs in downtown Powerville.

The Truth about Performance Reviews and Other Corporate Bullsh*t | Liz Ryan | LinkedIn | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
The Truth about Performance Reviews and Other Corporate Bullsh*t
Peter Vander Auwera's insight:

"To put one person in judgment over another like that is unhealthy and abnormal."


"For years we bought into the idea that a boss is truly our superior and in a position to evaluate and judge us, but now we are waking up to see how crazy that mindset is."

 

"In the real world vendors sell their services to clients. An employer is only a long-term client, and nothing else."

Align with Your Star Employees | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it

Think back. Reflect on your career and write down your five biggest leadership disappointments.

 

If your experience is typical, your list will include losing top-quality talent. The memory of “suddenly” losing one of your best and brightest never seems to fade. The story is always the same: They weren’t looking, but a great opportunity just fell into their lap.
