Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, August 10, 2013 10:43 PM

The landscape of the workforce and workplace as we know it today is changing at a rapid pace.  The trend is "absolute and irrevocable" so in order to succeed, organizations and individuals must adapt.  Those who continue to learn and adjust will reap the rewards.

Cruise Line Class's comment, August 14, 2013 8:47 AM
I agree completely Garth! Ten years ago employers were stil valuing loyalty and attendance. In my humble opinion as well, employers value adaptability, flexibility, and employees who ask what can I do to help?

Ready for Change?

Ready for Change? | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Cruise Line Class's insight:

As successful leaders we have learned to base decisions, and use the tools that have served us well in our past.  That could mean that the skills, behaviors, and tools we have used have resulted in individual, team, and organizational success.

 

The huge learning comes from continuously adding something new to our leadership toolbox. 

 

If we are really serious about developing ourselves... we need to do more then just leverage our strengths and minimize our current areas of opportunities. 

 

The organizational landscape is constantly changing, and we must learn to help our teams adapt faster and consistently learn new tools and techniques to thrive today and into the future.

Foundation of a High Performing Team

Foundation of a High Performing Team | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Cruise Line Class's insight:

Creating a high performing team is built on trust.  Each member knows that teammembers will come through for eachother. 

 

When the team comes together and establishes a one-team, one-vision, one-goal philosophy, they are all headed in the same direction.  Leaders are intentional in putting the collective goals of the team ahead of inidivual and department goals.

 

What are your thoughts?  Do you have samples of teams who do this consistently?

 

Make it a great day!

Three Things Every Leader Should Do in a Meeting

Three Things Every Leader Should Do in a Meeting | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

Benjamin Franklin famously said, “The only things certain in life are death and taxes.” If Franklin were alive today, he would probably add “meetings” to that list. Meetings are a permanent fixture on all of our schedules, ever present and in many cases unavoidable. Instead of viewing meetings as an expense, think of them as an investment. I find effective leaders view meetings as an opportunity to advance the outcome, while strengthening themselves and the teams they lead.

 

Here are three things I strive to achieve when meeting with teams:

The Benefits Of Mentoring

The Benefits Of Mentoring | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
One of the best investment in your career life is mentoring - either having a mentor, or being a mentor.

Via Gust MEES
Cruise Line Class's insight:

In my humble opinion:  It is never too late to be a mentor, and you are never too experienced to have a mentor.

 

How wonderful it is to share tools, tips, mistakes, and lessons with someone who has not had the same experiences. 

 

On the flip side, seeking out someone as a mentor who already has the expertise and experiences in an area that you want to strengthen is a great suggestion.  (Why would I want to learn the hard way, when I can learn from someone who has already made the mistakes, and has proven methods, tools, and tips to help accomplish my goals faster.

 

 Anthony Robbins says that Success leaves clues.

Great Leaders Aren’t Afraid to Lose Their Talent

Great Leaders Aren’t Afraid to Lose Their Talent | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

Leaders with an abundance mentality don’t let concerns about losing strong talent drive their leadership development practices. Instead, they provide ample ways for their team members to grow. Even if it ultimately means filling someone else’s talent pipeline, they are secure in the knowledge that taking a long view of leadership development benefits their team and, ultimately, their organization.

Completely agree!!!  These special leaders tap into their talent and consistently grow and develop people and companies.
