Leadership Lessons: A Healthy Corporate Culture Built on Feedback

Leadership Lessons: A Healthy Corporate Culture Built on Feedback | Leadership and Learning | Scoop.it

“Traditional management style may help organizations run efficiently, but it won’t help to unleash the best gifts of every single person in your organization,” asserts Joris Luijke on the Management Innovation eXchange (the MIX).

 

Luijke is VP of Talent for Atlassian, a $102-million software company based in Sydney, Australia. In his post on the MIX, he cites four methods Atlassian uses to encourage employee expression and autonomy. Sure, there are the typical perks (creativity, risk-taking, healthy conflict) that come with empowered employees. But an atmosphere where employees express themselves helps in other ways, too: On a daily basis, Atlassian execs have the means to assess — and even quantify — how the rank and file feel about senior management and the company’s overall direction. Here’s how:

They are great ideas. Atlassian has had significant growth in Australia and is seen as a real success story. It is good to get some insight into ways they have reached this success.

Great, simple feedback channels that we could use.  Would love to put that survey in place using http://www.typeform.com/ (esp. when they roll out their solution for teams managing surveys).

Desires to be in a senior management/leadership role lead me to read this and I think due to it's diverse, modern theme, it's a great basis for anyone else with similar career goals.

True leaders are human

True leaders are human | Leadership and Learning | Scoop.it

Being a leader is much more complicated than simply acting leader-like. True leadership (the type that changes lives by giving followers self-respect and value with the windfall of changing attitude and behavior) is good for organizational performance and product quality. True leadership is quality-based. Fake leadership is leader-like-sound-bites of things leaders might say

How Positive Psychology is Transforming the Way we Think about Leadership

How Positive Psychology is Transforming the Way we Think about Leadership | Leadership and Learning | Scoop.it

One of the activities I often do with students when introducing the idea of positive psychology in leadership is to ask them to select their favourite leadership quotation and explain it in terms of psychology theory and evidence.

Being positive psychologists, popular choices include:

 

A leader is a dealer in hope (attrib. Napoleon Bonaparte) – optimism, hope, inspiration, the broaden & build theory It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself (proverb) – emotional intelligence, strengths, self-regulation Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm (attrib. Publilius Syrus) – resilience, strengths/unrealised strengths, self-efficacy

Aspiring idea entrepreneurs are everywhere: in businesses, classrooms, and communities of all kinds, all over the world. Maybe you know one. Maybe you are one. But you don't have a massive influence-creation machine behind you (few people do) and you wonder how to get your idea heard above all the others competing for attention. How do you proceed?

Fueling Growth in Uncertain Times

Fueling Growth in Uncertain Times | Leadership and Learning | Scoop.it

Wall Street and Capitol Hill are in different cities, but where dialog on major economic issues is concerned, they might as well be on different continents. Many corporate executives suspect that policy makers do not understand business. And government officials, for their part, often view business people as being short-sighted and more concerned with profits than the pressures of public policy.

 

To bridge this gap between New York City and Washington, D.C., the Wharton School -- located appropriately midway in Philadelphia -- recently launched the Wharton Public Policy Initiative. On March 7, the Initiative hosted its first major event, the Wharton Economic Summit, in New York City. "Our goal was to bring together business leaders and policy makers and talk about major sectors of the economy," says Mark Duggan, faculty director of the Wharton Public Policy Initiative. "We wanted to shine a light on a path forward for the U.S. economy that will be important for future growth." Marc Rowan, co-founder of Apollo Global Management and chair of the Summit, adds: "Think tanks are funded by the left or the right. We are an independent party, and we want to show that business can be a resource for policy makers."

Three Surprising Leaders Who Demonstrated the Importance of Flexibility

Three Surprising Leaders Who Demonstrated the Importance of Flexibility | Leadership and Learning | Scoop.it

History provides us with many examples of leadership.  Whether you talk about Churchill, Steve Jobs or Abraham Lincoln, one thing they have in common is the ability and wisdom to adapt to the circumstances while still keeping their eye on the goal.   History is also filled with rigid and inflexible types who might not bend, but almost invariably break.  However, history doesn’t always tell the full story.  This article will show three unlikely people who demonstrated the theory of flexibility in leadership.

Interesting read> (From the article): Leaders in business today mostly don’t have the same obstacles, but they can still learn the lessons from Arnold: adapting to the circumstances, and keeping the long-term goal (winning the war, maximizing employee performance) intact while making sure the little steps (identifying motivational needs, opposing navies) are the focus.  Just don’t later turn over secrets.

If you want to become a leader, don't wait for the fancy title or the corner office. You can begin to act, think, and communicate like a leader long before that promotion. Even if you're still several levels down and someone else is calling all the shots, there are numerous ways to demonstrate your potential and carve your path to the role you want.

The Modern Taxonomy Wheel | Leadership and Learning | Scoop.it

" This Taxonomy wheel was first discovered on the website of Paul Hopkin’s educational consultancy website mmiweb.org.uk That wheel was produced by Sharon Artley and was an adaption of Kathwohl and Anderson’s (2001) adaption of Bloom (1956). The idea to further adapt it for the pedagogy possibilities with mobile devices, in particular the iPad, I have to acknowledge the creative work of Kathy Schrock on her website Bloomin’ Apps."
