VUCA Times Call for DURT Leaders

VUCA Times Call for DURT Leaders | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it
VUCA times call on leaders to raise their game, plant the seeds for a better future ahead. VUCA requires strong leadership.

Via ThinDifference, Philippe Vallat, Jean-Philippe D'HALLUIN
Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (aka VUCA)  does require good leadership. But all of the DURT behaviors are important and should be practiced regardless of conditions. Trust as we know is important for robust engagement, clarity is important for  broad alignment, directness is important for superb execution and reliability is important in sustainable adaptation.  Leadership's purpose in VUCA situations and, in general, is to maintain and build effectiveness in achieving results; the DURT behaviors and other Purposeful Leadership  behaviors is at the heart of organizational success regardless of circumstances.

VUCA times require more of leaders not less. Leaders need to be a Direct, Understandable, Reliable, and Trustworthy leader.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 4, 8:50 AM

When we are direct, are understood, are reliable, and trustworthy, we send signals about being responsible. The era of accountability and transparency are not about responsibility. We can still hide necessary information in being transparent. We cannot when we are responsible.

Empowering Improved Organizational Performance Through Organizational Effectiveness

Empowering Improved Organizational Performance Through Organizational Effectiveness | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it

This resource collects and presents tools and techniques to support efforts to improve enterprise results regardless of organization industry or type.  Comments and remarks seek to clarify the relevance or value of enhanced organizational effectiveness as a means of achieving better performance. 

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

Improved Organizational Effectiveness can be achieved in a number of ways.  The Empowering Effectiveness Model categorizes these paths to effectiveness in four categories:

 

=> Broad Alignment-ensuring clear direction and focus are pervasive throughout the organization
 

=> Robust Engagement-establishing a level of commitment that drives effort regardless of current circumstances 
 

=> Sustainable Adaptation-maintaining the capacity to anticipate and meet current and future challenges. 
 

=> Superb Execution-unceasingly pursuing excellent performance and performance improvement.   

 

A critical element in the on-going journey to improved effectiveness is Purposeful Leadership.  Such leadership involves finding the best ways to promote organizational success.   See Empowering Effectiveness Graphic at  http://img.scoop.it/YSU0h1-8Uul3SU8iQekNtTl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBVvK0kTmF0xjctABnaLJIm9

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

A great post summarising the most important characteristics that a leader should have. 

Leadership skills can be taught, however true leaders can only be few as it is indeed hard to strike a balance among all these traits.

That is so true Frank. True leaders are role models and should always seek improvements to benefit themselves as well as the people they lead.

Warren Bennis on Six Competencies Exemplary Leaders Share

Warren Bennis on Six Competencies Exemplary Leaders Share | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it

In Bennis’ four decades of research, observation and study of leadership, he was one of the first to identify the overall effect of leadership on organizations. Most conclude, he said,that leadership competence makes a positive difference of approximately fifteen percent in organizational effectiveness.  

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

Among the six competencies noted by Bennis are Alignment, Engagement,  Adaptation/Agility and Getting Results (Execution); these are the four key factors in the Empowering Effectiveness Model of organizational effectiveness.The other competencies noted in the article, Generating Trust and Developing Leaders also have an indirect role in effectiveness as they promote engagement, alignment, agility and execution.  To explain the other 85% of  organizational effectiveness, consider your favorite organizational model. Beyond leadership, these models provide a variety of places to look for opportunites to enhance agility, alignment, engagement and execution.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 4, 10:20 AM

It is interesting he used the word engaged rather than empowered. They have substantially different meanings. Being empowered suggests someone gives you power. Engaging suggests that we find our power sources and it flows through social interactions.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 1, 2013 7:36 PM


Small business owners in particular, often fail to understand the different roles played by leaders and managers, and as a consequence their businesses suffer because of either a lack of leadership or a lack of management.


To clearly understand the differing roles played by leaders and managers, a business owner needs firstly to understand, the key differences between managers and leaders.


This excellent short video, offers ten clear differentiators between leaders and managers, and suggests that businesses require both leadership and management to be successful.
