The Most Common Leadership Model - And Why It's Broken

The Most Common Leadership Model - And Why It's Broken | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it
When organizations’ hire, develop, and promote leaders using a competency-based model, they’re unwittingly incubating failure.

I am a big fan of Mike Myatt.  Here is another reason why, from the article:

 

Here’s the thing – you can possess the greatest technical wizardry under the stars, but that doesn’t make you a leader. 

 

If you don’t care, aren’t collaborative, can’t communicate, fail to take input and feedback, and allow your hubris to overshadow your humility, you might be intelligent, but in my book you’re not very bright.

 

The really sad part of this story is how often this type of person is rewarded in a competency-based system.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 2013 4:46 PM

A very interesting article that indicates what we get out of followers is really the measure of the leader. That means a rethink on hiring, developing, and promoting leaders. We want leaders not managers.

Mark Gregory , Programme Innovator @Transformation Coach's comment, April 24, 2013 5:42 PM
Prior to the global meltdown having managers was best as we needed them to manage growth. Now we strong leadership to get us out of the mess. Trouble is there are too few around in both politics and business.

I agree. If you have good people that make good decisions (90% of the time) and are passionate about what they do, it almost seems as things take care of themselves.

 

You do need a leader though. Someone who makes a final decision when there is a choice to be made. We do not always end up at a place where we are all sure and have 100% agreement. There is always choices and managemnet by committee usually does not prduce the best product but it is a great place to start.

 

And don't be afraid of making mistakes. The path to good ideas and the right answer is often found after you have tried a few things and failed. Then all you should need to do is tweak and improve the ideas. That process is the natural order.

Leadership is not an accomplishment you check off your daily to-dos. At the heart of leadership is the omnipresent, bold belief that influence, relationships, dialogue and faith in people call forward our best leadership abilities. Leadership is inspiring others to give their best effort despite what they believe to get things done.

Totally agree with the article: One size fits all doesn't work !


Here's the problem: Employees who want to game the system are going to do so inside or outside the office. Supervising them more closely is costly, enervating, and it's ultimately a losing game. As for highly motivated employees who've been working from home, all they're likely to feel about being called back to the office is resentful — and more inclined to look for new jobs.

John Michel's curator insight, March 16, 2013 8:58 PM

The mysteries of the brain are unfolding.  Only a generation ago, we believed that our brains were static and fixed, prone to inevitable atrophy.  Now we are beginning to understand that the brain can rewire itself in remarkable ways. And we are the catalysts!

The not-so-good news is that what often remains – as stagnant and immobile as our brains are not – are the ways we still cling to old ideas about organizational systems that do not maximize human performance.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 11, 2013 9:19 AM

(From the article): There is such a thing as too much transparency, says Moskovitz. That’s why performance reviews and personal matters that come up in meetings aren’t shared with the company.

 

Rosenstein admits they’ve had to coach people to be more confident about receiving the flood of feedback that can come from this practice. “One of our values is balance,” he says, to maintain the flow of ideas without having someone bottleneck over a perceived slight to their work.

Kudos's curator insight, March 11, 2013 1:30 PM

Honesty / Trasnparency is the best policy. A cliche' but true. Build trust with your team and they will follow you anywhere. 

Michael_J_Stone's curator insight, March 14, 2013 9:49 AM

Just as important as the ideas on transparency is the notion of being original and pushing beyond standard operations. As you might guess, I like the "Start with Hiring" and "Create a Roadmap" ideas. Pay particular attention to how these strategies allow "wrong-fit" employees to opt out of the selection process.

(From the article): Risk can be a scary word when we’re deeply entrenched in the comfort of the status quo.  As a leader, why should you foster innovation if you and your organization are successful today?  There are 100 companies right behind you and ready to undercut you on price for similar products and services.  Clients eyes glaze over after a while when the only differentiator is price.  Break out of the comfort zone and start with doing something different, not just making incremental improvements to today’s processes and products.

HOW TO CULTIVATE EMPATHY

We all have the capacity for empathy.  As human beings we are literally wired for it.  But that doesn’t mean we’re off the hook: as with any skill, empathy must be nurtured and practiced.  And in that, we can all play a role.  Empathy begins and ends in our relationships with others.  Each day presents us with dozens of opportunities to model it – with our children, our friends, our colleagues. Here you'll discover tips, practices, and profiles of game-changing educators and innovators to help you more effectively cultivate empathy, starting right now.

Finding your value in others


+Penny Power says in her book “Know me, like me, follow me”:
In the 21st century people are rebelling against control ….to have followers you need to have the right intention and care deeply about the success of others… Having followers is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow ….

Your ability to be followed will depend on your ability to be a “leader”. Not a leader in the traditional sense, this is not about leading a team, but leading a movement and a set of thoughts. Leadership has to be earned, you are placed in this role by those who follow you, not because you say “I am a leader.”
