A truly great leader operates from the soul level, inspired by vision and inner wisdom as opposed to greed. Do you have what it takes to be a great leader?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 14, 2013 9:41 PM

Leadership is about helping a shared vision to emerge. We have an abundance of technicians in our organizations and they are good at telling people what their vision is, but rarely do I see bringing it all together.

How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way

How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way | Leadership | Scoop.it

When I started my first company, I hired people I knew and loved.  I thought, Why wouldn't I want to work with my friends all day?

In many cases that worked out fine. Then my company began to grow beyond my circle of friends. The talents required for success became a bigger priority than the camaraderie.

 

I was usually able to find people who fit the culture and the job description and whom I also enjoyed spending time with. But every once in a while the person I needed to hire just wasn't my cup of tea. And while we shared mutual respect, spending time with this person became a chore, as did the experience of managing him or her.

You can't love everyone who works for you. Here we share how to manage talented people who you find irritating.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 30, 9:08 AM

(From the article): It's not that uncommon in larger companies to have employees who do a great job but their personality just rubs you the wrong way.  People are people and not everyone can be totally dispassionate. But a great manager can put aside their personal feelings and look objectively. I have mostly found that those people who make me uncomfortable are often my greatest teachers.

Joe Boutte's curator insight, June 13, 6:21 AM

I think we all run into people that irritate us and this article from inc.com has some good pointers for overcoming irritation.  I wouldn't characterize it as "managing" irritating people, because we manage things.  We lead people, even those who irritate us, through influence and everyday leadership approaches to get the job or mission accomplished.

Leadership through conversations

Leadership through conversations | Leadership | Scoop.it

There is the adage, “Managers focus are results; leaders focus on people.” That really should be “leaders focus on results and people,” as in today’s hyper-competitive business environment, we must hit our financial goals or we may not keep our jobs. But how are we going to keep our good people energized and engaged if we don’t invest the time to know them as our team members and what is important to them?

donhornsby's curator insight, August 20, 11:05 AM

(From the article): Senior managers spend up to 50% of their time in meetings, and much of their remaining time speaking with each other, on calls, and in front of their computers. Most of their communication is through e-mails and or is delegated to those who report to them.


We have to free ourselves up. We have to make our meetings shorter, more efficient and more productive, and then take the time for conversations with our people.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 20, 6:11 PM

Leading and conversations are entangled. Pedagogy, as leading, is about engaging students in complex conversations about curricula. The curricula involved are planned and living. The latter belongs to the historical persons entering classrooms, including teachers, which filter the planned curricula.

Three Secrets of Organizational Effectiveness

Three Secrets of Organizational Effectiveness | Leadership | Scoop.it

When the leaders of a major retail pharmacy chain set out to enhance customer satisfaction, market research told them that the number one determinant would be friendly and courteous service. This meant changing the organizational culture in hundreds of locations—creating an open, welcoming atmosphere where regular customers and employees knew one another’s names, and any question was quickly and cheerfully answered.

social animal and scientific validation: pride building as an organizational effectiveness method

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 24, 10:07 AM

Well not terribly new, not particularly secret but still helpful. Autonomy, clear purposes, and recognition are described as sources of pride but we've known about these for quite some time in connection with high performance. More specifically, all of the ideas referred to: pride, trust, autonomy, purpose and recognition are associated with employee engagement--a key driver of organizational effectiveness in the #empoweringeffectiveness model.

The Great Transformation - Lead Article for 2014 Drucker Forum

The article is intended to provide the backdrop for the 2014 Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna. It deals with the challenges and opportunities for management in the face of the gigantic changes that we are experiencing in our society. Technology is a game changer - yet it will lead down the wrong path if not accompanied the appreciation of the essence of what it means to be human. Humanist leaders must provide the context and grounding for a society that is in danger to become increasingly technology obsessed. Hence the call for a 2nd Renaissance.

The best leaders work hard to appeal to the heads, hearts, and hopes of others. Rather than trying to lead by telling people where to go, they lead by going to that place themselves and then making a case for it.
