Missouri Highway Patrol seizes control of Ferguson

Missouri Highway Patrol seizes control of Ferguson | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Joe Boutte's insight:

UPDATE:  Since this one night of leadership excellence, we've seen a set of leadership failings that are important examples to avoid.  This is not to say that the original article on Ferguson was inappropriate, however, the developments of the last few nights in Ferguson show how a few bad actors can spoil the intent of leadership, but more importantly, the desires of a community.  It is in these chaotic situations that everyday leadership  has its biggest challenges and where leaders emerge who can calm the anxieties and anger of a community or organization.  I won't comment on the variety of issues at play in this distressed community, but keep your eyes on the emerging leaders who are trying to put this community back together.  Unfortunately, there are also "submerging" leaders in this environment who are undermining good order.  I'll be monitoring both sides for examples to share, but I look forward to hearing from others on what lessons you see as this situation develops.  Most of all, I pray for that community and for the real leaders to emerge that can calm the community and ignite positive change and civic responsibility for all sides so that the wounds opened over the last few days may be healed.

 

ORIGINAL COMMENT:

Amazing change created by the governor and a leader who recognized that police serve the public. Everyday leadership is serving those you lead through integrity, respect, and discipline. Some may simply call it professionalism.

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership and management are two distinctly different but complimentary skill sets that all companies need. Leaders make sure the organization is doing the right things, while managers make sure they do those things right. Leadership is about coping with change while management is about coping with complex issues. Both are qualities that can be learned and both require constant focus on improvement. Especially when the organization is facing potential adaptive challenges.

Thanks to @LeadershipABC for highlighting this article.

Eric Chan Wei Chiang's curator insight, August 12, 8:25 PM

These five steps may seem very simple but they are often taken for granted. To give direction a leader must take ownership and have a vision. Managing conflict and providing protection are often not pleasant and require great maturity from leaders. Shaping the norms and clarifying roles is often not given a very high priority as it involves intangible people skills.

Joe Boutte's insight:

Martin Zwilling provides some great advice for everyday leadership with several suggestions for leader agility.  I particularly like the “big bang theory of change", where Mr. Zwilling states, "innovations only come through huge and expensive new projects, with big rollouts, is a thing of the past".   He is right when he says that "new innovations should be seen as experiments, which are inexpensive, measurable, quick to fail, and without retribution if they don’t work."  Leaders experiment everyday or they should!   Nice read.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 25, 6:03 AM

(From the article)" A leader is continually asked to make decisions with incomplete and variable data sets. The choices many times are not right or wrong, but differing degrees of good enough with conflicting second and third order effects. This draws many leaders into analysis paralysis where a decision is delayed into nonexistence because of the continual search for a perfect solution.

 

A courageous and dynamic leader knows their worth is determined by their ability to properly analyze situations and take deliberate, calculated risks to move the team forward.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, August 26, 11:06 AM

Personal courage is the catalyst to overcoming fears and becoming the leader and person, you are meant to be.

Don Cloud's curator insight, August 26, 1:18 PM

It is not enough for a leader to have courage ... rather, the most powerful leaders must both exude courage in the face of danger and more importantly must draw out and energize the courage of their people to face and defeat that danger.

Joe Boutte's insight:

Leadership is a team sport for organizations.  Although one person may have the final responsibility, everyday leadership includes having a team of leaders in the C-suite who bring the expertise, acumen, and advice to the organization's leader so that he/she can make the most informed decisions.  Diversity of thought, experience, and ideas give all the leaders the ability to think through issues, challenges, and planning to create the environment and excellence that drive the organization to accomplish its vision, goals, and objectives.

Teachers are leaders. It is not a default position or one that is given to them. It exists in the very words education and pedagogy which mean leading children.

 

The default position has become one where teaching is not leading. It is about managing.
