We need to create human workplaces!

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, February 12, 9:26 AM

 Two of the main barriers to a lasting and effective leadership transformation are compartmentalization – treating ‘the people side’ as separate from strategy and cost control – and command and control mindsets, which often persist after a nominal shift towards empowerment has been made.

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, 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.

Most of us were taught that the only way to lead effectively is to eliminate, or at the very least swallow and hide, emotions like anger and frustration. Go professional or go home, right?

Wrong.

(From the article): A team isn’t going to accomplish much  if all they are taking on is the easy stuff.  They may feel like they are being “successful” because a lot of boxes are being checked, but it’s an illusion.  All they need to do is stare at their “To Do” lists, and see that doozy staring at them.

 

And that’s the good news in this story -  most teams learn to prioritize well.  What we really need to do is always staring us in the face, at the top of that list.

 

We just need to muster up the courage to do it.

Smart Leaders Are OK with Seeming Uncertain | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it

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?


Knowing (and admitting) when you're incompetent - perhaps the most important leadership competence!

donhornsby's curator insight, January 14, 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’.

Great Leaders Develop People

Great Leaders Develop People | The Genuine Leader: Leadership for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
The ability to actually develop people over time is one of the most significant differences between leaders and managers. Managers have the mindset to do the best they can with the people they have, while leaders learn how to take the people they have and make them better. Most experienced leaders and coaches know that the best way to begin to influence people’s perceptions of themselves is to affirm their talents and value gradually and very persistently. Most people are not used to another person looking at them and actually seeing more talent and more upside than everyone else perceives. This is exactly what exceptional leaders do.

Via David Hain

Great leaders always bring out the best in others and they do their best to help their people shine.  Developing their people is what fuels their purpose and in turn, gives meaning to their lives.  Great leaders live and lead this way.

People who try to plan for everything tend to see surprises as mistakes, weaknesses of their preparation. It is easier for them to see surprises as failures to be ready, rather than opportunities to discover new insights. They often do not like surprises. They may miss significant lessons waiting to surprise them.

The main difference between happy surprises and sad ones, good surprises and bad ones, is how we respond to them.
