Doing a lot of research on Trust and its importance for my latest project, Leading Past the Status Quo, an internet radio show.  Here is a resource I will be using this week.  Thanks to Susan M. Heathfield (@heathereagar)

 

From the article:

 

Thinking about trust as made up of the interaction and existence of these three components makestrust easier to understand.

The capacity for trusting means that your total life experiences have developed your current capacity and willingness to risk trusting others.

 

The perception of competence is made up of your perception of your ability and the ability of others with whom you work to perform competently at whatever is needed in your current situation.

 

The perception of intentions, as defined by Tway, is your perception that the actions, words, direction, mission, or decisions are motivated by mutually-serving rather than self-serving motives.

Scott Span, MSOD's curator insight, April 9, 2013 10:12 AM

Trust is the foundation of any great relationship - both personal and professional.

The quality of leadership has a strong influence on a company’s ultimate outcome. While every company is different, there are certain general qualities that every leader should have.

While this is certainly not a comprehensive list, it may be a good place to start.

AN AGILE LEADER ... OR THE BENEFITS OF ADMITTING MISTAKES

AN AGILE LEADER ... OR THE BENEFITS OF ADMITTING MISTAKES | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

It takes courage and humility to admit when we are wrong or that we have been the cause of some upset.

 

 

Admitting our mistakes ...

 

1.) ... demonstrates courage.
Admitting our mistakes and taking responsibility as a leader takes extraordinary courage. It demonstrates humility and sets us apart from mediocre leadership where ego, looking good and believing in our infallibility are more important than the benefits we will accrue from learning from our mistakes.

 

2.) ... demonstrates our humanity.
Admitting our own mistakes qualifies us as a member of the human race and in turn allows other people to step forward when they have made a mistake.

 

3.) ... sets an example for our followers.
If integrity, truth and honour are values of our organisation, then leading by example should be a behaviour that demonstrates that we are really living our values.

 

4.) ... garners greater respect.
Admitting mistakes and learning from them separates extraordinary leaders from mediocre ones and earns the respect of our colleagues, families, friends and stakeholders.

 

5.) ... engenders more trusting relationships.
It is now often seen as a sign of emotional maturity in our leaders when they hold themselves accountable rather than “passing the buck”. This trust will in turn strengthen our relationships as our stakeholders will translate these actions into somebody who is honest and is worthy of our trust and loyalty.

 

6.) ... creates greater organisational value.

Investors and shareholders place a greater value on organisations that look to rectify their mistakes from within as opposed to blaming external factors. Investors place a greater value on leadership that assumes responsibility and control.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 3, 2013 2:18 PM

Very interesting insight here, some of it is a bit hard to believe and I wonder if it changes with age.

 

From the article:

 

Strikingly, CultureAmp found that good work/life balance was among the least important factors in creating employee engagement. Team members may like flexible hours, full weekends and time off for family situations. But such accommodations didn’t appear to translate into a deeper commitment to the job.

 

CultureAmp popped another balloon with its finding that employees’ perception of how well-paid they were ranked only 25th among the 45 factors that are considered possible drivers of on-the-job engagement. Once again,  employees might enjoy generous pay packages — yet remain relatively disconnected from the company’s projects and goals.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, March 29, 2013 12:27 PM

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.

This does not suprise me at all.  The large effort and associated industry pushing for employee engagement seems futile.

Who needs 'engaged employees' doing the wrong work or performing poorly ?

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 9, 2013 2:38 PM

From the article:

 

Murphy suggests regularly monthly meetings (perhaps lasting no more than 20 minutes) that ask managers about what's going on in the workplace and how motivated they feel. As Murphy says, "If a company CEO were told that their best customers were unhappy, it's a safe bet that CEO would be on a plane within hours."

"For a gamification designer, there are 10 design mistakes to learn from this real-life example:

The mission is unachievable: the game cannot be won

The players don't have all the tools to win

The players cannot learn how to play the game

The game masters change the rules arbitrarily

The rewards are unclear

The rewards are subject to change

Some players (management) play with different rules

Some players (management) earn an over-proportional amount of the limited rewards

Story line, feedback, and rewards clash

Players dis-engage and leave the game"

LEADERSHIP COMES FROM THE HEART AND CONSIDERS THE HEARTS OF OTHERS - Six Qualities Leaders Need to Be Successful

LEADERSHIP COMES FROM THE HEART AND CONSIDERS THE HEARTS OF OTHERS - Six Qualities Leaders Need to Be Successful | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it


Leaders have to be able to flexibly adapt their strategies in line with their personal qualities, the company culture, and the situation. The new thinking about leadership emphasizes authenticity, openness, caring and flexibility.
A leader needs to be genuine and lead by example, understanding and is emotionally connected in order to inspire loyal followers.



Here six qualities a leader needs to be successful:

- A good leader lives by the same principles he expects of his followers
- Great leaders inspire us to reach for the stars and to become what we dream of.
- Good leaders show empathy - they take the time to listen to and connect emotionaly with followers at all levels
- The best leaders show passion, commitment, and dedication. They put the organization first and are willing to make personal sacrifices to achieve group goals that they highly value. They display self-discipline and unselfishness.
- A key quality of leadership is the ability to inspire others through emotional connection as well as rational arguments and explanation. Leaders articulate their vision in such a way that followers can see the big picture. Leadership involves engaging the whole person including the sense, thoughts, and emotions.
- Great leadership involves bringing out the best in the followers. Leaders create an organizational culture in which the strengths and potential of each individual are valued and recognized. 

These words sum it up so wonderful:

Leadership is not so much about technique and methods as it is 
about opening the heart. Leadership is about inspiration - of oneself 
and of others. Great leadership is about human experiences, not processes. Leadership is not a formula or a program, it is a human activity that comes from the heart and considers the hearts of others.
It is an attitude, not a routine.

—  Lance Secretan, Industry Week, October 12, 1998

John Michel's curator insight, March 30, 2013 10:25 AM

Sometimes leaders get to stand in the lime light, marching forward in a triumphant pursuit of excellence and performance. Sometimes leadership requires standing in the shadows to support those closest to you.

Leadership is about influence and accomplishing tasks while utilizing the gifts of those you lead. This should look in part, as if the leader is serving those around them.
