Servant Leadership: The Agile Leadership Transformation

Servant Leadership: The Agile Leadership Transformation | Innovation | Scoop.it
Do you think like a Servant Leader? With the Agile Transformation requires a new approach to leadership.

Via ManagingAmericans
Christian Bartosik's insight:

The typical oldstyle manager seeks to achieve outstanding performance by focusing on processes and data.  He thinks that if he tweaks the workflow and captures some additional metrics, he can improve team performance.

He is always willing to set aside his job of planning, organizing, staffing and controlling in order to jump in to deal with the crisis of the day. Problem solving provides immediate gratification and allows him to go home at the end of the day feeling as if he has accomplished something.

The thoughts of a servant-leader would be completely different. His job is to develop people, not systems. Such a leader would view the success of his team as the means of achieving that success and would behave accordingly.  He would ensure the team has the resources it needs and would seek to remove obstacles that impede the team’s progress.  

The servant-leader allows the team to solve the crisis of the day without direct intervention.  He may provide coaching, advice or additional resources to the team, but he lets them work out the solution.  And he makes sure the team gets the credit for the solution.  The servant-leader understands that, over time, the problem solving skills of the team will exceed his own abilities.

"The Frappuccino turned out to be one of Starbucks' most popular and profitable drinks," Hunter said. "And, according to [Starbucks' then-vice president of sales and operations] Howard Behar, it happened because someone was allowed, and even encouraged, to experiment with a new product that deviated from the company's core product line."

Highly effective innovation culture change programs

Highly effective innovation culture change programs | Innovation | Scoop.it
Nothing is more constant than change. Furthermore, the speed of change is accelerating. So for instance, the global knowledge is growing exponentially, disruptive megatrends (e.g. Internet Of Things, urbanization, demographic shifts) are shaping the innovation agendas and new approaches for capturing value by innovation (e.g. Business Model Innovation, Design Thinking) are becoming mainstream. Thus, new realities for innovation management are emerging and firms are forced to change their innovation management ever faster. One might assume that under the constant pressure to change firms have achieved a great deal of excellence in running corporate change initiatives. However, quite the opposite is true. A large study from 2013 showed that only 1 in 2 major change programs succeed. In this 2-part article series, innovation-3’s Frank Mattes shares his deep experience in designing and implementing innovation culture change initiatives. You will find ideas and inspiration about how your firm can increase the chances for success in changing innovation culture.
