Why more women need seats at the table

Why more women need seats at the table | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Studies show that collective intelligence rises with the number of women in a group. Engaging a critical mass of women is linked to more progressive and positive outcomes and to more sustainability-focused decision-making across sectors.

Yet, women have remained a notable minority in climate negotiations at both the national and international level, in the global scientific body on climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and in media debates about climate.

The Most Productive Way to Develop as a Leader

The Most Productive Way to Develop as a Leader | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Everybody loves self-improvement. We want to get smarter, network better, be connected, balance our lives, and so on. That’s why we’re such avid consumers of “top 10” lists of things to do to be a more effective, productive, promotable, mindful — you name it — leader. We read all the lists, but we have trouble sticking to the “easy steps” because while we all want the benefits of change, we rarely ever want to do the hard work of change.

How Do You Get People to Work Harder? Just Turn Them Loose

How Do You Get People to Work Harder? Just Turn Them Loose | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Here’s a fundamental question: How do you get people to work? Answering fundamentally, you form a contract with them consisting of a set amount of compensation and benefits in return for an equally set amount of work.

 

Less fundamental and more important (or at least more interesting) is this question – How do you get people to work harder on what matters most to you?

donhornsby's curator insight, January 16, 2015 8:20 AM

(From the article): As a leader, you do hold unique responsibility for ensuring there are opportunities for such exposure, for those on your team to work closely with others. But then, turn your people loose. Let them explore ways they can contribute differently within their own team and across departments or groups.

 

That’s how you break down silos, but it’s also how you give people the three hallmarks of engagement espoused by Dan Pink in Drive – autonomy, mastery, and purpose.

RESPECT. The Leadership Behavior That’s Most Important to Employees

RESPECT. The Leadership Behavior That’s Most Important to Employees | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
For the last 20 years, I’ve studied the costs of incivility, as well as the benefits of civility. Across the board, I’ve found that civility pays. It enhances your influence and performance — and is positively associated with being perceived as a leader.

Being respectful doesn’t just benefit you, though; it benefits everyone around you. In a study of nearly 20,000 employees around the world (conducted with HBR), I found that when it comes to garnering commitment and engagement from employees, there’s one thing that leaders need to demonstrate: respect. No other leadership behavior had a bigger effect on employees across the outcomes we measured. Being treated with respect was more important to employees than recognition and appreciation, communicating an inspiring vision, providing useful feedback — or even opportunities for learning, growth, and development. However, even when leaders know that showing respect is critical, many struggle to demonstrate it. If you’re one of those leaders, consider the following steps:

Though it may be particularly hard for leaders to embrace uncertainty after years of being taught to display confidence, there is a clear business benefit in doing so. Research has shown that over-confident CEOs make overly risky decisions, often at the expense of their shareholders. Leaders who are able to come to terms with uncertainty and communicate it to employees may avoid such bad decisions.

It's amazing how difficult it is for people to use the phrases:"I don't know", "I need help", or "I was wrong".


But who would you rather work with or for...

1. Someone who, faced with a challenge they don't understand, pretends to know the answers (to give you confidence in their leadership)....or...

2. Someone who asks for your help when they  recognise they are in a situation that is beyond their level of competence?

donhornsby's curator insight, January 14, 2015 2:44 PM

(From the article):  Trust is a very evocative word in the business world. It means different things to different people, depending on their gender, ethnicity, culture, background and geography.  Corporate behaviour is definitely under the microscope with widespread perception of a disconnect between corporate behaviour and ethical conduct.  In this climate, it would be very easy to jump to measurement and greater legal requirements.  Whilst issues such as compliance are a vital aspect of good governance, recent research published by Roger Steare and colleagues indicates a strong relationship between ethical leadership and performance as well as ethics being key to employee engagement. 


Clearly, there is a need to go back to basics to define what ethical behaviour means both for the individual and the organisation.  Those organisations that have travelled this route have benefited from creating a ‘speak-up’ culture; confidence in the market as well as commitment from employees who buy-into the idea that ‘good thinking = good business’.
