Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader

Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
A new Ketchum leadership study of more than 6,000 respondents in 12 countries reveals people are looking more to employees at all levels for leadership instead of just those at the top of the org chart. According to the fourth-annual Ketchum Leadership Communication Monitor (KLCM), 41 percent of respondents believe leadership should come mainly from the organization and all its employees, compared with 25 percent that believe leadership should come only from the CEO.

This aligns with three years of KLCM data pointing to the demise of the CEO-as-celebrity leadership style and highlights a greater-than-ever opportunity for "leadership by all" – a collaborative and communicative culture that empowers employees at every level.

While the CEO, board and senior management still play an important role, the study suggests that employees throughout an organization can and should provide leadership. The survey identified the top five traits of an effective leader: leading by example (63 percent), communicating in an open and transparent way (61 percent), admitting mistakes (59 percent), bringing out the best in others (58 percent), and handling controversial issues or crises calmly and confidently (58 percent). These are traits that every CEO should possess, and also ones that every good employee would have.

Ron McIntyre's insight:

Having advocated flat organizations for the last 5 years this study is very gratifying. However, even with the data incorporated here command and control will not go quietly into the night. Too many egos involved still. The time will come!

some good leadership traits identified here: and remember leadership happens at all levels!

Scott J. Simmerman's curator insight, July 2, 9:16 AM

We call it "leadership." It frames up as the engagement of the organization and its people to look for the countless performance improvement opportunities. Leadership CAN"T be only from the top down -- that is de-motivational and you know that, "A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world." (John LeCarre) -- It is the hands on people who know about most of the things that need to be fixed to optimize performance results.

Research continues to learn more about how we learn, but it is not always easy to find. This post, by informEd, provides 10 suggestions based on current research, and each is discussed in more detail in the post. Below are three of the findings.

* To learn quickly, don't concentrate so hard. Over thinking can make it harder to learn.

* It matters what your learning environment looks like. Did you know that physical characteristics, "such as air quality, colour, and light" can together impact the learning process of primary students by as much as 16% in a single year."

* Understanding a student's learning process occupies the same space in the brain as practicing empathy. I suspect we have all experienced frustration when working with students, but to provide feedback that will help them empathy also plays a role.

This post provides seven additional insights that may make a difference in your classroom. Click through to learn more about research on how we learn.

Does Articulating Your Corporate Values Matter?

Does Articulating Your Corporate Values Matter? | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

Corporate values are commonplace. They are stated on corporate literature and easily found on company websites so that visitors can get a sense of what is important to the organisation.  Stating values is also a way to shape internal stakeholders’ understanding  of the company and an attempt to influence their behaviours. 



Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Values are always more valuable when they are lived rather than relegated to a shelf for display.  Too many companies values are on shelves only.

more...
Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, July 2, 6:21 AM

Does it matter what list of values a company ends up with as long as they can present “something” to the world? According to INSEAD research companies perform better when they have clearly articulated values and use them to influence behavior.



Glenn Wallace's curator insight, July 4, 8:40 AM

Does it

James D Johnson's curator insight, July 4, 11:34 AM

Gallup reports employee engagement at 32% as an improvement, best since 2000!  Perhaps if organization leaders put more effort into reflecting on, communicating effectively and actually living the values they espouse.  People want to know that they are involved in something greater than themselves.  Corporate values, properly followed, lays the foundation for healthy cultures and higher performance.
