The New Role Of Leaders

The New Role Of Leaders | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

The role of leadership has changed. It is no longer enough to merely plan and direct action, today we must inspire and empower belief.

 

Strategy in the 21st century has become less directed and more emergent.  Even the military relies less on plans and more on commander’s intent.  Corporate chieftains are following suit, experimenting with management structures such as holocracy.  Yet we need to do more than simply change policies and practices, leadership itself must be redefined.

 


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen, Jerry Busone, Roy Sheneman, PhD, donhornsby
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Absolutely agree but how many leaders are willing to inspire and empower?  Do you understand what this takes?

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 7:01 AM

(From the article): Strategy is no longer a game of chess.  We can’t think only in terms of planning and execution, but need to understand how information flows and cascades self-organizearound strategic intent.  Hierarchy fails in the digital age not because it is illegitimate, but because it is slow and the world has become fast.


Today, you gain power and capability not by increasing scale, but by deepening and widening connections.  Brands have become open platforms.  Proprietary research must now compete with open innovation.  Control has become an illusion and a dangerous one at that.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 7:31 AM

It is a slow process to change and one of the reasons may be that we still leadership as a top down process i.e. the use of terms like corporate chieftains.

 

One way to accelerate the process might be in school where children learn that there are other ways to lead. Holocracies might mean that the hierarchy is fluid and constantly shifting. Schools remain very rigid in their hierarchical structures and are managed as opposed to involving the complex interchange of leading-managing.

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

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 7:04 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, 7:34 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.
