Learning to Lead Without Authority | Leadership | Scoop.it
What started off as an innocuous query from my leader soon became a chance to explore and grow myself as an individual contributor at a deeper leadership level -- someone who doesn't need a hierarchy, department or budget to make an organizational impact.

This is good advice.  It's possible to lead from all levels of the organization.  In a warrior culture, this horizontal leadership is probably the most important kind....

Lisa Moran's curator insight, Today, 7:52 PM

Its always important to realise, especially when it comes to safety, that we can all be leaders in some way.  Leadership is one of the most important factors in changing safety and safety culture within the workplace, without which safety is seen as not being important or meaningful.

We can all contribute by being leaders when it comes to safety by setting a good example, being observant and taking the initiative.

Preparing Senior Leadership For The Influence Of The Cultural Shift Of The 21st Century Workplace

Preparing Senior Leadership For The Influence Of The Cultural Shift Of The 21st Century Workplace | Leadership | Scoop.it
Companies that are run in traditional ways are suffering. Top-down, hierarchical, departmentally siloed, purely profit-driven – these are organizations where talent development is an after-thought and leadership is on a path to extinction. At a time when it’s becoming less about the business defining the individual and more about the individual defining the business, employees at these companies are still made to feel they must check their authentic selves at the door and conform to the company way of doing things. They stay because their marketable skills grow stale and less transferable, not out of any sense of loyalty or opportunity for growth. Into this scenario comes the influence of the cultural demographic shift, telling us that the 21st century workplace is one where people seek to express their true identity – in a community-minded, boundary-less environment that encourages individuality and creates new types of opportunities for the betterment of a healthier whole.

Les leçons finissent généralement par toute se recouper.   À force de se les faire présenter de différentes façons, le message fini par passer :-)  Un des messages de base: le leadership ne s'apprend pas dans les livres mais sur le terrain, avec les gens qui nous entourent.  Le leadership est plus du domaine du savoir-être que du savoir...

 

Basically, the messages beyond all those articles written on leadership are about the same: you don't learn leadership in books; you experiment it in real life with real people.  Finally, leadership is more about "beeing" than "knowing" ...

Four Reasons Leaders Are Too Afraid Of Making The Wrong Decisions | Leadership | Scoop.it
Leaders are paid to make difficult decisions. This requires leaders to know the facts, take calculated risks, trust their gut and always prepare their teams for the unexpected. During these uncertain times, I’ve witnessed several hesitant leaders in Fortune 500 companies whose line of sight is blurry. Afraid of making the wrong decision, they cannot see the unique opportunities that are right in front of them. Instead of making the effort to gain greater clarity and understanding of the su

4 Reasons Great Leaders Admit Their Mistakes

4 Reasons Great Leaders Admit Their Mistakes | Leadership | Scoop.it
You can never go at leadership alone. Unfortunately, too many leaders allow their egos and hidden agendas to stand in the way of doing what is best for the people and organizations they serve. Leaders are not responsible for always being right. However, they are accountable to see that problems become opportunities and solutions are proactively found so that momentum is never lost. They should know who the subject matter experts are on their team(s) and empower them during times of crisis and change so that the organization is not blindsided by the unexpected. As any great leader will tell you, they have made many mistakes along the way. They will admit that it was the collective insight from bad decisions that taught them invaluable lessons – and how to see opportunities in everything and anticipate the unexpected more quickly. Successful leaders are transparent enough with themselves and others to admit their wrong doings so that those around them can also benefit from their learnings. They call this wisdom and many leaders lack it – because they are too proud to recognize mistakes as valuable learning moments for themselves and others.
