They did learn the buzzwords, and they know what is in the air in the mainstream management literature, that's for sure... they are stars and, of course, visionaries... they say, leading and managing are different but they are helluva good managers as well about their closed circle and that's management about, it's pretty sure too... However, it would be very interesting to have also a 360 review about their activities to see more clearly...:-)))

Why Business Leaders Need To Build Greater Self-Awareness

Why Business Leaders Need To Build Greater Self-Awareness | Leadership | Scoop.it
Senior executives don't seek coaching or leadership development. Here's why.
Donna Karlin's insight:

"Learn from your own personal time-line. " Look for the gaps, the stalls, the "going back to your default" way of dealing with situations. Then see how, having a personal "partner in crime" will help you evolve to the 'nth' degree.

Employee enagagement whilst not easy it vital to any business ... you just have to look at how the benefits outweigh the work... loyalty, enthusiasm, productivity, profitability, motivated... and the list goes on!

Baillie Lumber's curator insight, September 10, 2013 8:35 AM

Yes employee engagement is critical in executing on a successful operational strategy. The authors point of ensuring your culture is aligned and supports employee engagement is a good one. If your culture does not support the strategic direction i might be worth the time to find ways to bridge that gap!

Greg Lustig's curator insight, September 11, 2013 9:25 PM

To fully engage employees ,you need to make them feel that they are an 

intregral part of the process.

The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers

The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers | Leadership | Scoop.it

Even as recently as twenty or thirty years ago, the people with influence were relatively easy to spot: the President or Prime Minister of a nation, religious leaders, CEOs, and probably your parents.


Their influence was based on a combination of position, experience, knowledge, wealth – and most importantly control of the channels of communication to the “people,” for to have power influence must be spread.


No longer – the influence landscape has already shifted dramatically and will continue to evolve.

Wie heeft de macht in deze groeiende netwerksamenleving? Zij die de meeste invloed uitoefenen, maar zijn dat nog dezelfde die dat vanuit hun functie of geboorterecht altijd gehad hebben?

Alex Watson's curator insight, October 18, 2013 11:39 AM

Interesting read.

Tom Hood's curator insight, October 19, 2013 11:29 AM

Great visual of the modern leader and to quote Jim Collins,m"we are moving from organizations well managed to networks well led." Essentially, the leaders of today will be more like association executives than command and control CEOs of the past. What do you think about this?

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change | Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership and management are two distinctly different but complimentary skill sets that all companies need. Leaders make sure the organization is doing the right things, while managers make sure they do those things right. Leadership is about coping with change while management is about coping with complex issues. Both are qualities that can be learned and both require constant focus on improvement. Especially when the organization is facing potential adaptive challenges.

Thanks to @LeadershipABC for highlighting this article.

Eric Chan Wei Chiang's curator insight, August 12, 11:25 PM

These five steps may seem very simple but they are often taken for granted. To give direction a leader must take ownership and have a vision. Managing conflict and providing protection are often not pleasant and require great maturity from leaders. Shaping the norms and clarifying roles is often not given a very high priority as it involves intangible people skills.

Thanks for sharing. It's useful :) Highly applicable to educators too.

My short answer would be yes (as the article concludes with some helpful capabilities to develop) - although some of the old types will still apply.
