The Death of the Hero Leader

The Death of the Hero Leader | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
We have moved to a new age of leadership causing the death of hero leaders and the birth of social artists.

Via David Hain, Ricard Lloria, donhornsby
Ron McIntyre's insight:

This is an excellent point.  The model today requires significantly different approaches to communications and connection.  The focus cannot be on only one person.

#Blogathon latest.  Forget your 'to do' list, what's on your 'to be' list?

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 2014 10:04 AM

(From the article): Above all else, you must be genuinely you. Don’t be a mini-someone else. You have to operate knowing that you have everything you need to be a leader. Can you polish a few things? Sure. Will you learn ways to become more effective? Absolutely, but the canvas that you work from is you. I rarely meet a leader who is 180 degrees off the mark in being a leader that others want to follow.

 

Here are three things to increase the level of genuine you’re bringing to the office:

 

Be vulnerable; if you don’t know, admit it.Admit your mistakes and then make it right.Act with integrity. Integrity means to do the right thing even when no one is watching.

 

If you focus your leadership on being present, clear, and genuine, your leadership confidence, focus, and results will grow. As you grow, so will your team. Everyone wins!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 2014 10:34 AM

There is a quality of mindfulness in the article i.e. being present. This is positive and can be built on to create organizations which are fluid and flexible.

 

In School, we still adhere to the hero leader i.e. principals who can change thing and silver bullet solutions i.e. the fad du jour. The result is we deform rather than transform School.

The New Rules of Work? They’re a Waste of Time in the Real World

The New Rules of Work? They’re a Waste of Time in the Real World | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
I’m usually a big fan of Fast Company articles, but one recently seemed like the biggest contrived piece of new-aged garbage, and I just had to share! The article has a great premise: …
Ron McIntyre's insight:

This is a counter point to a Fast Company article that was previously written about the new rules of work. Interesting but I don't agree with either article, they really are both extremes in the real workforce. For example, there will always be jobs where you must be there in person, but many can be done from anywhere. As with all of the points in these articles, there are exceptions and balance points in real life. Both should be read for insights that apply not as a map for implementation!

Why Frequent Flyers Might Be Wasting Billions on Airfare

Why Frequent Flyers Might Be Wasting Billions on Airfare | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
A new study alleges that major airlines, including Delta and United, are restricting consumer access to airfare information through external booking sites.
Ron McIntyre's insight:

There are no surprises here, as far as I am concerned. The more sites that try to arbitrage a flight the higher the cost, everyone in the transaction wants to make money. It really boils down to the convenience factor. Is the convenience worth the $30/flight.

Are you prepared for the future?

Are you prepared for the future? | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

Our Global Leadership Forecast (GLF) is a truly global study of more than 13,000 business leaders and 1,500 HR executives. The GLF report is a fascinating study of leadership today and focuses on the experiences of leaders all around the world, and the implications.
It’s clear that, not only are leaders struggling with new skills such as using analytics, driving innovation, surviving in the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world and managing increasingly diverse teams, they are finding the fundamental requirements of leadership difficult.
These include delivering on the specific strategy of their CEOs, leading rather than managing, and effectively interacting with teams.


Via David Hain
Ron McIntyre's insight:

I so agree with David Hain on this one. The tough part is genuinely development of true relationships rather than contrived and distorted dysfunctional groups.

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.
