Make the Right Choices to Create a Winning Strategy

Make the Right Choices to Create a Winning Strategy | Leadership | Scoop.it

Under A. G. Lafley’s leadership from 2000 till 2010, Procter & Gamble's sales doubled, profits quadrupled, market value increased by more than $100 billion, and its portfolio of billion-dollar brands – such as Pampers, Olay, and Gillette – grew from 10 to 24 as a result of P&G’s focus on winning strategic choices, consumer-driven innovation, and reliable, sustainable growth.


This is the story of the strategic choices that founded P&G’s transformation.

I sat down with Roger Martin and asked him to share some insights about the framework that transformed P&G and made strategy a part of the culture and thinking of the company.


The interview with Roger Martin relates to the book Playing to Win, which he co-authored with A. G. Lafley.

Great Leaders Develop People

Great Leaders Develop People | Leadership | Scoop.it
The ability to actually develop people over time is one of the most significant differences between leaders and managers. Managers have the mindset to do the best they can with the people they have, while leaders learn how to take the people they have and make them better. Most experienced leaders and coaches know that the best way to begin to influence people’s perceptions of themselves is to affirm their talents and value gradually and very persistently. Most people are not used to another person looking at them and actually seeing more talent and more upside than everyone else perceives. This is exactly what exceptional leaders do.

Great leaders always bring out the best in others and they do their best to help their people shine.  Developing their people is what fuels their purpose and in turn, gives meaning to their lives.  Great leaders live and lead this way.

Lansana Gagny Sakho's curator insight, December 13, 1:36 AM

The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.

 
Jerry Busone's curator insight, December 13, 8:03 AM

The difference between good to great leaders is how well you develop your people. Are you helping someone get better today?

5 Actions of Transformational Leaders

5 Actions of Transformational Leaders | Leadership | Scoop.it

As a business leader, inspiring people to follow you in pursuit of your company’s mission is your job.

 

After all, your personal success is directly linked to the success of the company. If the top and bottom lines don’t improve, you don’t have a winning team. And if your culture and organization aren’t wired for sustainable growth, you won’t succeed.

 

That being said, you have to offer your employees — your company’s life source — something more than self-gain. You have to give them an encouraging vision and an identity. Once you do that, you become something bigger than yourself. You become a transformational leader, and your business becomes resilient.

donhornsby's curator insight, November 20, 10:36 AM

When you lack confidence: You aren’t sure which road to take because you don’t know if the company is heading for the same destination as you once thought. If you knew the vision you would diligently pursue it. Rest assured, you will lead without fear once again. Ask the right questions and you will understand.

 

“Confidence comes not from always being right, but from not fearing to be wrong.”-  Peter T. Mcintyre

 

If you are feeling confused, concerned and don’t have that old confidence anymore because things have changed, here’s what you do: Ask the right questions and you will understand.

My reading and writing has taken down a phenomenological path. Leading is about wonder and asking questions which have no presupposed answers.

John Michel's curator insight, November 16, 11:00 AM

Because they were passionate about their work, long-haul leaders had a strong work ethic. They did what was necessary to get the job done. They were not clock punchers. Because they so loved their work, they hardly saw their vocation as work. It was fun and rewarding.

Research: 10 Traits of Innovative Leaders

Research: 10 Traits of Innovative Leaders | Leadership | Scoop.it

Many organizations would like their leaders to create more innovative teams. But how exactly should they do this? If you ask highly innovative leaders what makes them effective you are apt to hear, “Well, I don’t know. I haven’t thought about it.” Or they will make something up that sounds compelling. But the fact of the matter is that people who excel at something aren’t usually very good at pinpointing exactly what accounts for their skill.

So to find out more, we conducted our own study.

6 Leadership Development Trends for 2015

6 Leadership Development Trends for 2015 | Leadership | Scoop.it
Before we go on to unveil the future trends, let’s have a look at what was happening on the leadership training scene this year. Among the most innovative leadership strategies being taught all over the world was the so-called “endogenous resourcing”, standing for the myriad techniques for unlocking employees’ hidden potential.

Apart from this trend, we saw the rise of management policies that foster sustainability and a slow transition from the autocratic, control-and-command management style to its more democratic variety – both demonstrating how the human side of business has become a growing factor in the success of leadership as employed by many global brands.

Having examined the present, let’s now direct our gaze to the future – here are 6 innovative leadership development practices that we will see spreading in the upcoming year.
