I am not a bit fan of SWOT assessments, because I have seen them grossly manipulated. Setting that bias aside, we do live in a VUCA world and many faux-leaders fail to recognzie this.

James Green not only provides lessons on what he learned from Steve Jobs; however, what he learned about himself.

 

I particularly agree with the importance of hiring for fit.  No matter how intelligent someone is if they are not a right culture fit for the team and the company -- it does not equate for a win/win for either the employee or the company.

This crucial ability – knowing how to do right thing at the right time — is what establishes you as a real player. Smart business leaders have thought long and hard about what business they are really in— and what’s more, have both the psychological preparedness and the creative vision to know what business they need to become if they want to stick around – and flourish — in today’s volatile times.

The Best Way for New Leaders to Build Trust

The Best Way for New Leaders to Build Trust | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

Many leaders see their role as directing and giving information, rather than gathering.  There is pressure to “come up with the answer” quickly or risk looking weak.  Too many new leaders believe they’re expected to know the answer without input or guidance. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

This article really hit home for me today!

 

I really liked the how the author defined values:

Values are what we hold important when making decisions or taking action. 

 

As a leader once you take the time to hire talented and passionate people who fit your culture, identifying values will help guide your leaders to stay on course.  To me living the values, believing in the values, and ensuring that we as leaders as well as our teams are staying on course with how decisions are made.

 

Values then become an inside out job, and become simply how we do things around here.

Zappos says goodbye to bosses | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

Via David Hain
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

This is forward thinking! 

 

It all comes down to what your company culture is, and what you hope to achieve as a result of this culture. 

 

When we work with executive teams one of the questions that we ask is this:  "What is impossible today; however, if we accomplished this would be a game-changer for our industry?"  Because when you think of it -- nothing is impossible.

 

When you have a leader like the CEO of Zappos...he is constantly asking himself and the team this question.

This move is getting lots of attention.  What are your thoughts?

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, February 26, 2014 6:16 AM

Zappos has led the business community in new management concepts in the past. This idea is super-radical.


Articles published by the company provide a little detail on how this system will work,  however I get the impression that the concept will evolve as they discover major shortcomings and seek to address them.


Zappos may be getting rid of official job titles and management responsibilities, however natural leaders are sure to emerge and take control. In the absence of clear reporting lines and command structures, there will be a strong tendency for 'feifdoms ' to emerge. 


Concepts such as Holacracy, Democracy, Communism, etc. are wonderful in theory, however there is one major obstacle that has never been overcome: the nature of human beings. Self-interest always wins!


In my opinion, Zappos will only make this work after a serious dilution and modification of the core principles. I admire their effort and look forward to observing their progress. We may all learn something valuable from this initiative.


"Go Zappos, Go! ... Go Zappos, Go! ... Go Zappos, Go! "

Success is never owned; it is only rented – and the rent is due every day | Zig Ziglar | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

People who are successful embrace the idea that the rent is due every day. They welcome the challenge. They remain humble, knowing that whatever they did yesterday isn’t enough to last them forever, and they remain hungry, knowing that whatever they’ve accomplished in their past shouldn’t restrict them to what new heights they can achieve in their future.
