This is consistent with our research. In high-growth companies, by the time you get the right top team in place and running on all cylanders, their jobs are likely to have outgrown them.

Elysian Training's insight:

Elysian Training is very happy to be featured on the cover of Realizing Leadership this month.

“If people listen to you, if they’re choosing to follow you – your words, your ideas – you’re a leader regardless of your position and that’s fundamentally misunderstood because we associate the word leader with those people with power..”

This is so true. As a person we need people to believe in us to grow and learn.  Too often we only look at the outside to make decisions. Personally, I do not believe you can lead if you don't believe in your people!

6 Leadership Failures That Put Your Company at Competitive Risk

6 Leadership Failures That Put Your Company at Competitive Risk | Leadership | Scoop.it

Companies lose momentum when they fail to see the opportunities that their competitors are consistently seizing. This happens when a company’s senior leadership refuses to change with a rapidly evolving marketplace and the consumers who want brands to evolve with them. Companies fail to grow and compete when their senior leadership gets lazy and they lack the required skills and competencies to stay in lock step with the market, let alone stay ahead of it and define the trends themselves.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 2, 6:07 AM

I've always been a fan of Maslow's hierarchy of needs and I really appreciate this "tweaked" model because it maps it very close to the principles of employee engagement. 


On the survival level, I would add "I can't retire" as a common sign of disengagement.  As a supervisor, I do all I can to engage many of these staff as they often provide great context and insight as to what has been done in the past and how efforts can be optimized in order to succeed the next time we try them.  



Jenny Ebermann's curator insight, April 20, 3:12 AM

Having worked in many engagement programmes over the years, fulfillment and decent treatment are really key for employees to feel motivated and happy at their workplace.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 20, 7:13 PM

Only 15% reach self-actualization. I wonder how many never get beyond security? More importantly, what constrains those people? As well, we should not mistake people who are busy selling themselves and their limited ideas with anything but the security level.

Some Amazing TED Talks on How to Be A Leader

Some Amazing TED Talks on How to Be A Leader | Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership comes with hard work but successful leadership entails more than just laboriousness, it calls for special traits that only a select few possess. Whether these traits are skills that can be developed or are a matter of biological endowment is something which still needs scientific back-up. Generally speaking, successful leaders do have something in common. They share a set of common characteristics such as : confidence, focus, trust, far-sightedness, accountability, enthusiasm, persistence, communication, determination, love of their work, and patience. Also, successful leaders are a joy to be around. They listen empathically and are a source of inspiration and zeal to the people around them.

Positive Teams Are More Productive

Positive Teams Are More Productive | Leadership | Scoop.it
All managers would like their teams to be more productive. Yet most companies are using the same old methods: strategic plans, goal-setting, streamlining operations, reducing inefficiency. Others are offering employee perks, such as on-site food, daycare, or gyms. Others are offering bigger bonuses or flexible schedules.

Kim Cameron and his colleagues at the University of Michigan, however, have discovered a way to improve performance that has nothing to do with dishing out benefits or deploying new processes. In a research article published in the Journal of Applied Behavioral Science Cameron and his coauthors found that a workplace characterized by positive and virtuous practices excels in a number of domains.

Ashley Borich's curator insight, March 18, 12:08 AM

As a leader in an organisation, you should be able to creatively influence people to perform assigned tasks willingly, effectively and efficiently. As an occupational health and safety professional it is essential to be able to effectively plan and control people and processes to create a safe, positive and professional working environment. In order to successfully implement safe working practices to employees, you must provide them with purpose, reasoning and trust.

 

This article is meaningful to my five year journey, as effective management is crucial to my goal of becoming a human resources manager after completion of my degree. Currently, I am in my fourth year and final term of finishing a dual degree of business and professional communication, majoring in human resources. After graduation I hope to pursue a career as a HR manager, therefore it goes without saying that leadership plays an integral part of effective management.

The Single Best Way To Develop Leadership Skills

The Single Best Way To Develop Leadership Skills | Leadership | Scoop.it

You might learn a great deal in school, but it’s doubtful that you’ll actually develop as a leader by reading a book or taking a course. The military is right about experiential development: People grow and become leaders by making a commitment to a cause, and having personal responsibility and accountability.  

 

For those of us in civilian life, there are also ways for us to develop as leaders through experience: through volunteer service. There are myriad nonprofit missions from which to choose, roles and positions in which to engage that are meaningful and productive, and paths for personal and professional advancement.
