So often organisational leadership just want to have "obedient" leaders who follow all their clear instructions, yet Lolly Daskal made a strong point that critical thinkers are urgently needed.

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.

The 6 Basic Leadership Styles and When to Use Them | Leadership | Scoop.it
Good leaders need to be able to vary their leadership style and move between the styles mentioned here in response to the prevailing situation. These styles used in combination should enable a far more effective leadership that delivers tangible improvements in team performance, but relies upon the judgement of the leader in selecting the most appropriate style.

Leaders, when in doubt – ask the right questions

Leaders, when in doubt – ask the right questions | Leadership | Scoop.it

donhornsby's curator insight, November 20, 2014 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.

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.

Connect to the very soul, as you look each person in the eye. And whether a kind handshake or a gentle touch on the arm, make whatever physical connection is appropriate

donhornsby's curator insight, November 4, 2014 8:14 AM

Purpose is important for leaders today. It will become increasingly vital in the future. We are entering a great age of empowerment for both employees and customers. Employees will demand the right to choose who they work for, which tribes they join and which products they associate with. Purpose will be the basis of much of this choice, and the greatest leaders will rally around missions that offer the chance to have dramatic positive impact. 

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, November 5, 2014 9:56 AM

Your values will define your purpose.  That's why values-based leadership is and always will be, so important.

Take a Look at Yourself in the Leadership Mirror

Take a Look at Yourself in the Leadership Mirror | Leadership | Scoop.it

How we see ourselves is often very different from how we appear to others. Actions we believe reflect decisive or confident characteristics may come across as controlling or arrogant while attempts at openness may be perceived as being indecisive or weak. Understanding how supervisors, co-workers, direct reports and clients perceive us can give valuable insights into our leadership behavior and help us become more effective leaders, better able to embrace and adapt to change.

Here is a look at each trait, and why it is so valuable for you to cultivate.

Leadership & Creating an Environment of Service

Leadership & Creating an Environment of Service | Leadership | Scoop.it

A lot has been said about the leader as “servant”. I expect, given that it is a relatively young term (having been ‘born’ in 1970), it is also subject to wide interpretation. As such, while some people will experience great results from their efforts to serve, others will consider it a fad that will go away if they ignore it. Still others will make every effort to embrace the notion of the Servant Leader but find themselves exhausted, confused and possibly resentful because people seem to be walking all over them.

So what to do?

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.
