Collaboration and cultural awareness essential in next generation of leaders

Collaboration and cultural awareness essential in next generation of leaders | Leadership | Scoop.it
A new study has shown that Generation X value very different leadership qualities to their departing peers. How can organisations prepare and shift?

Via Amadou M. Sall, Shawn Simpson, Jenny Ebermann, Wise Leader™
Deborah Long's insight:

An organizational shift and transition will occur in the work place as Generations X and Y inherit leadership roles once held by retiring Baby Boomers. Guided by a different set of values than Boomers, Gen X and Y will likely redefine leadership in years to come.

Shawn Simpson's curator insight, May 26, 2013 6:24 AM

This is a long overdue and meaningful change. Am very much looking forward to it.

John Michel's curator insight, May 27, 2013 10:36 AM

Organisations must also accommodate the different work attitudes and motivations of the generations, moving if necessary to a flatter organisational structure and providing opportunities for freer movement.

Meaningful Mentoring: 4 Tips on Taking Advice

Meaningful Mentoring: 4 Tips on Taking Advice | Leadership | Scoop.it

“Don’t follow any advice, no matter how good, until you feel as deply in your mind that the counsel is wise." - Joan Rivers

 

Throughout our lives, during times of uncertainty we seek guidance and wisdom from those we are close to. How do we utilize their insights with our intuition?


Via David Hain
Deborah Long's insight:

Seeking guidance from those you trust is what a mentoring relationship is all about. Taking the advice and reflecting on the decision to be made must be given sound consideration.

John Michel's curator insight, May 31, 2013 4:02 PM

How we adopt advice should improve as we become more self-aware. Our reason for seeking counsel continually changes with heightened self-awareness. Who we look to for advice changes as we grow older, and as we better understand both the perspective of those we surround ourselves with, and their relationship to us. We become more tuned into our ability to compare and contrast what we truly want and how to weigh others’ insights.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, May 31, 2013 8:12 PM

ratzelster's curator insight, June 1, 2013 8:29 AM

Words from this article: ..."Many people think that hard work will eventually be noticed and rewarded. That can indeed happen—but usually doesn’t. Women, our interviewees repeatedly told us, need to “create their own luck.” To engage with opportunities by taking ownership of them, you must first find your own voice, literally."    Read more now.
