Tom Hood's curator insight, March 29, 2013 8:25 AM

Some great insights in this article for me, reaffirmations and reinforcement of principles around leading change and innovation.

 

Change is about people, not organizations or systems. Organizations are really about People. I use the term Return on People.

 

Transformation is about creation and destruction. I say transformation is creating what isn't rather than improving what is.

 

Paradox and the ability to hold onto completely opposite ideas (also from Jim Collins and the power of AND versus OR).

 

What do you think?

Hello Tom, for me it's very interesting to connect opposite ideas, it's the soil of creativity.

A new study by Hay Group shows that female leaders tend to have better interpersonal skills.

Via John Michel, David Hain
Ann Oliveri's insight:

Self-awareness is essential to effective leadership. A leader must know herself — her abilities, her shortcomings, and her opportunities for growth in order to be able to provide direction, guidance and inspiration to others.

John Michel's curator insight, May 9, 2013 6:20 PM

Research by Hay Group, culled from its 17,000-person behavioral competency database in 2012, finds that when it comes to empathy, influence, and the ability to manage conflicts in the executive level, women show more skill than men. Specifically, women are more likely to show empathy as a strength, demonstrate strong ability in conflict management, show skills in influence, and have a sense of self-awareness.
