Changing the Culture of a Government Agency | Crucial Skills

Changing the Culture of a Government Agency | Crucial Skills | L&D News Bits | Scoop.it

Measurement is the language of organizations. If you want to change organizational behavior, start with the language. Some have tried to blame inefficient government bureaucracies on the bureaucrats. They assume the reason service stinks at the DMV and is stellar at Nordstrom is because of the people themselves. That’s baloney. We’ve done plenty of research in government agencies and found inspired, capable leaders as much in abundance as in many Fortune 500 companies...

Great Leadership: How to Overcome the 3 Organizational Barriers to Leadership Development

Great Leadership: How to Overcome the 3 Organizational Barriers to Leadership Development | L&D News Bits | Scoop.it

You would think that given the rock-solid evidence that organizations with great leadership consistently outperform those that don’t that EVERY organization would be heavily invested in the development of its current and future leaders.However, most are not. And even if they say they are, when you look behind the curtain, it’s mostly lip service.

It’s also hard to keep a competitive advantage a secret these days, so again, it’s astounding to me that so many companies can’t figure out how to develop leaders by stealing the best practices from those that do or stumbling on proven, tried and true, research-backed leadership development models, tools, and practices.

How can this be? In today’s hyper-competitive business climate, why would companies ignore such a no-brainer opportunity to kick the competition’s #%$@?

Leading People When They Know More than You Do

Leading People When They Know More than You Do | L&D News Bits | Scoop.it
Four ways to avoid being derailed.

 

If you’re a manager in a knowledge-driven industry, chances are you’re an expert in the area you manage. Try to imagine a leader without this expertise doing your job. You’ll probably conclude it couldn’t be done. But as your career advances, at some point you will be promoted into a job which includes responsibility for areas outside your specialty. Your subordinates will ask questions that you cannot answer and may not even understand. How can you lead them when they know a lot more about their work than you do? Welcome to reality: You are now the leader without expertise—and this is where you, possibly for the first time in your career, find yourself failing. You feel frustrated, tired and disoriented, even angry. This is the point where careers can derail. If you get to this point, or see yourself headed in this direction, what can you do?
