Increase Focus, Clarity, Creativity & Compassion: Practice Mindfulness | JenniferConnell.com | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it

I have always believed everyone is a leader in their own right and it is a choice to tap into and exercise leadership qualities be it for your family, your neighborhood, civic group, kids sports teams, professional group, personal growth, or unexpectedly helping a friend or stranger in a time of need. No title is necessary to be considered a leader and indeed it is an exciting proposition for one to elicit their leadership qualities to contribute to the greater good, personally or professionally.

How Netflix Reinvented HR

How Netflix Reinvented HR | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it

"We realized that some of the talent management ideas we’d pioneered, such as the concept that workers should be allowed to take whatever vacation time they feel is appropriate, had been seen as a little crazy (at least until other companies started adopting them). But we were surprised that an unadorned set of 127 slides—no music, no animation—would become so influential."

10 Steps To Effective Listening

10 Steps To Effective Listening | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems. Listening builds friendships and careers. It saves money and marriages.

One of the more rewarding periods of my business career included a leadership meeting weber of CEO adjourned discussion of a topic because the team were not asking questions ............. When we discussed the topic at the following meeting we had a lively debate both initially in a  "seek to understand" phase and then later in what amounted to brainstorming of potential solutions.

How Successful People Cure Their Blindspots

How Successful People Cure Their Blindspots | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it

Do you know what your leadership blindspots are? It’s a trick question because, by definition, blindspots are areas where you lack awareness of your weakness. Many coaches casually refer to them as “derailers.” A leader continues to advance and climb the career ladder until an unknown weakness suddenly derails her career.

Really enjoyed this article!

 

As an Executive Coach one of the greatest aha moments comes when b.lindspots are revealed.  Leaders will say things like "this is the first time I have ever heard this, or I have never been told this by anyone else." 

 

We all have blindspots, and as soon as we uncover some old ones new ones will certainly surface.

 

Enjoy the article.

Rehearsing Tomorrow – It’s No Joke | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it

Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad, whose 1996 book Competing for the Future highlighted what they called the “40-30-20 Rule” of strategic planning.


By that they meant that most senior executives spend less than 40% of their time focused on the world outside their own organization, only about 30% thinking about the next three to five years, and no more than 20% of their time talking with their colleagues about the future to build a common view. In other words, only about 2.4% of management time (40% x 30% x 20%) is focused on building a corporate view of the future.


Yes, that’s right - 2.4%!
