One Simple Step to Help Avoid Misunderstandings in Work Conversations

One Simple Step to Help Avoid Misunderstandings in Work Conversations | Leadership | Scoop.it
Many of the coaching conversations I’ve had lately have trended to the same theme: work that is almost, but not quite, on the mark. Since this is a keen issue for my clients, perhaps it is for you, too. In these conversations, I’ve learned that a leader believes she’s been clear about what needs to…

“ They key to successful leadership today is Influence, not Authority” Kenneth Blanchard.

I assume most of us are familiar with the word “Influencer”. I became acquainted with it a couple of years ago, through the scope of its current meaning, in light of all the digital eco-system we live in nowadays. Audience, followers, social media strategy, digital etiquette, expertise – this all builds up the world of influencer, its market share.

For me, it’s both exciting and challenging, the idea of being an Influencer and the way you can become one. I would say that expertise, self-discipline, focus, passion and egularity are one of the main features of strategy in order to become an Influencer. Passion will make it all come true much easier as well as leadership skills.

Help Leaders Be Less Useless at Strategy !

Help Leaders Be Less Useless at Strategy ! | Leadership | Scoop.it
At some point in the formulation of a strategy, its creator must review his or her work with the leader, either by choice or by procedure. If the strategist is a CEO, the reviewer is the board (or a committee thereof). If the strategist is a business unit head, the reviewer is the CEO, and so on down the organization. Regardless of the specific players, the process looks much the same; typically, we wait, and wait, and wait until the strategy feels iron tight. Once it is ready, we go in to the meeting with a perfect slide deck and lots of points in defense of our view ... Begin a discussion -- don't ask for an evaluation !

Are You Confusing Strategy with Planning?

Are You Confusing Strategy with Planning? | Leadership | Scoop.it
Most people agree that the two strongest human urges are survival and procreation, but there is very little consensus on the next most powerful. I believe it’s the need to succeed. Humans hate to fail — hate it more than almost anything else. But what about all the people in the world who apparently have no drive for success — for instance, kids who choose to be drug dealers rather than get an education and “succeed”? I see a different explanation for such behavior. If you hate failure, you have a wonderful way of ensuring that you don’t experience it: Play the game you know you can win.
