Most Working Adults Find Team-Based Work Difficult - Chief Learning Officer, Solutions for Enterprise Productivity

Most Working Adults Find Team-Based Work Difficult - Chief Learning Officer, Solutions for Enterprise Productivity | Leadership Application | Scoop.it
Natalie Savage's insight:

Okay, so I am not a fan of University of Phoenix as a source; however, Chief Learning Officer is reputable. I am also aware that Phoenix has deep pockets that support collecting data from industry. As one that is not personally a fan of "group" work, it is undeniable that having the skill and ability to work collaboratively is a desired competency in most working environments.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, August 14, 2013 3:21 PM

This is a fantastic resource.

 

From the article:

 

Burns, the Grand Father of transformation leadership, defines it as a “Process of engaging with others in such a way as to raise leader and follower to higher levels of motivation and morality.” He contrasts this to,

“A false conception of leadership as mere command and control.

 

As leadership comes properly to be seen as a process of leaders engaging and mobilizing human needs and aspirations of followers, women will be more readily recognized as leaders and men will change their own leadership styles.”

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, August 14, 2013 9:15 PM

Any leadership style has situational problems that have to be balance or more fluid with application and implementation.

Natalie Savage's insight:

Sometimes we face the challenge of helping others who are struggling through difficult leadership journeys. The following paragraph struck me as I read this article this morning. We must be brave and strive to do "the right thing"-- even when it proves uncomfortable or difficult.

 

We lead by virtue of who we are every time we refuse to play safe. We do it every time we speak up about what’s important to us. We do it every time we hold someone accountable. We do it every time we think outside the box, or turf the box out altogether.  And we do it every time we refuse to let our failures define us, and we challenge what has always been in exchange for what could be.

An eloquent piece on the business lessons we can learn from biological systems.  Applying just one of these ideas can take your company from good to great.

John Michel's curator insight, March 17, 2013 11:05 AM

Even the best of us are horrible at predicting the future. That's too bad, because our world is full of risk that we'd love to avoid and opportunity that we'd love to seize.

Fortunately, there's a rich source of lessons on how to thrive in an unpredictable world, and it has been cranking out success stories for 3.5 billion years. It's called biology.

All of Earth's successful organisms have thrived without analyzing past crises or trying to predict the next one. They haven't held "planning exercises" or created "predictive frameworks." Instead, they've adapted. Adaptability is the power to detect and respond to change in the world, no matter how surprising or inconvenient it may be.

While there's much chatter in the management world about the need to be adaptable, only a few creative companies and innovative managers have probed the natural world for its adaptability secrets. But when they have, they've been remarkably successful. A study of nature offers straightforward guidance through four key practices of adaptable systems.

Belinda MJ.B's curator insight, March 13, 2013 11:46 AM

Interesting insights.It is necessary to embrace a holistic approach of the individual in order to increase success in personal and professional development. Human beings are composed of 4 dimensions: physical (basic needs), mental, emotional and psychological. In the corporate world we tend to focus on only on 1 or 2 dimensions: physical and mental. It is time to involve emotions and even psychology or spirituality at work to allow each individual to use its full potential.

 

"Leaders and employees alike need to train their rational brain to work in sync with their emotional brain if they are to shift from self-protective behaviors that get in the way of achieving their potential. As humans, it is only by understanding how to harness our emotions that sustainable development and behavior change occurs. Understanding how a leader or employee’s brain is wired and the emotional drivers of their behavior is critical to their ability to engage in learning and developing."
