Here are some interesting technologies that are find their way into the workplace. How do you view them as an employee and how do you view them as a leader.  I can see a tremendous method for improving operations but I can see some real dangers. The key is why implemented i.e, to improve or penalize and whether the employer lets the employee know they are being monitored.  Both critical differentiators between success and failure.

The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis

The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Through the years, I’ve heard dozens of management experts enumerate the qualities of great leaders. Seldom, though, do they speak plainly about the “diseases” of leadership. The Pope is more forthright. He understands that as human beings we have certain proclivities — not all of them noble. Nevertheless, leaders should be held to a high standard, since their scope of influence makes their ailments particularly infectious.

The Catholic Church is a bureaucracy: a hierarchy populated by good-hearted, but less-than-perfect souls. In that sense, it’s not much different than your organization. That’s why the Pope’s counsel is relevant to leaders everywhere.

Via David Hain
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Some excellent insights from the Pope worth reflecting on by all leaders.  It is part of the human condition.

Ultimately change requires vision, and vision is the initial prerogative of few. It is the visionary who conjures a different future.

Searching for Passion - | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
We have heard it over and over again: “Follow your passion!” “Do what you love and the money will find you.” “Passion is energy.” We appreciate the significance of passion.

Restoring Humanity to Leadership

Restoring Humanity to Leadership | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

With recovery underway in many advanced economies, money is surging back into leadership development after the down-years of the recession. In 2013, companies spent an estimated worldwide total of US$45.5 billion on education for leaders at all levels.

Ron McIntyre's insight:

You can spend all the money you want on leadership development but if there is not an internal change in every person that moves to a H2H attitude then the money is wasted. By the same token, anyone voluntarily taking any leadership development where H2H is at the core and if they do not change then they have wasted their money.

To be a leader, you have to have a purpose and people who want to follow you over that purpose. You do not study to become a leader. Your purpose in life is the start of it all. No purpose, nothing to lead forward. What is your purpose ?

Time to Increase the ROT

Time to Increase the ROT | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Viewing training as an investment seems to be the exception rather than the rule. Given this and the fact that UK businesses alone are estimated to spend over £50 billion a year on training, it is no wonder that management is so ready to ditch it. It could not be otherwise. That is why the time has come to measure and increase the ROT.
Ron McIntyre's insight:

While I understand the idea of Return on Training, not sure I agree with the acronym of ROT, although it may have more resemblance to some training than people are willing to talk about. The idea of training is excellent but there needs to be an execution factor after the training. Too often training takes place but then never put to use, thereby wasting dollars.  Appreciate your bringing this out Bay. Have a great weekend.

Leadership Lessons From Letterman

Leadership Lessons From Letterman | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
He was “that guy” who rather famously — or should it be infamously — started off the 1995 Oscars telecast with the Oprah-Uma joke. I found it hilarious, but they didn’t.

But “that guy” — in his final week as a late night television host — deserves more than your scorn and scrapheap castoff. I’m here to say “Thank You, David Letterman.” I’m here to illustrate that there are leadership lessons to learn from television’s last remaining true broadcaster.

More importantly perhaps, I want you (David Letterman) to know how much I’ve personally learned from you over the many years of watching your late night zaniness.

Are you Plugged in or Otherwise Occupied?

Are you Plugged in or Otherwise Occupied? | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
According to research by Development Dimensions International, 89% of leaders with strong interaction skills have more engaged teams. It makes sense that there is a correlation between your interaction as a leader and employee engagement. After all, when leaders consistently connect with their team members in a positive way, they create an environment of open communication. This connectivity has positive business results as well: the DDI survey indicated that “plugged in” leaders had three times less turnover and 83% led their teams to exceed their productivity goals.
Yet there’s an irony at play. Consider for a moment two possible meanings of the word “engaged.” One is: to be thoroughly involved, as in, “the employees were highly engaged in the customer service rollout.” Then there is “busy or otherwise occupied.” In order to have the first type of engagement with your team, as a leader it’s necessary to forgo the second. Leadership places many demands on you; are you sending “I’m too busy” signals without knowing it? Here’s how to tell the difference between an Otherwise Occupied Leader and a Plugged-In Leader.

Via David Hain
Ron McIntyre's insight:

This paradox remains an issue. To be effective, IMHO, it requires leaders to be intentional, authentic and transparent when dealing with all levels within the company. Above all there must be a respect for each individual from the President to the Janitor.
