The strong correlation between fair leadership and inspiring change

The strong correlation between fair leadership and inspiring change | Leadership | Scoop.it
A paper from Journal for Business Ethics suggests fairness in leadership is a powerful motivator inside and outside a company

Via Susan Bainbridge
Melissa Hartley's insight:

If a leader isn't perceived as fair, they will not get the buy-in from their people to spend discretionary effort on innovation and affecting change.

Integrity and strength of character are at the heart of leadership ... and a culture of "fairness" resonates across and outside of an organization.

Cath Daley's curator insight, October 9, 2013 5:16 AM

And I think fairness follows on automatically if you have integrity very high in your values, both personally and as accompany.fairness and integrity go hand in hand

Helena Gonçalves's curator insight, October 23, 2013 2:03 AM

Would you use "fair" to describe your leader?

9 Consultant Skills They Don't Teach You In Business School

9 Consultant Skills They Don't Teach You In Business School | Leadership | Scoop.it

In my 20 years as an international consultant, I’ve observed my colleagues in action: from the very predictable cohort of gray-suited analysts to the egotistical and colorful “friend” of the CEO.

And then, they are those who do great work.

 

These often discreet consultants share nine skills, not taught in business school, that separate the effective from the awesome.

There needs to be a checkpoint to vision on what it is inciting and this two by two matrix may help.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 10, 5:42 PM

Great scoop here via @wildresiliency.  


Totally agree with the following:


Vision is an essential element to making organizations work in meaningful ways but the work needs to be reinforced through the right cultural aspects.


The culture and vision blend:


  • Vision activates action but needs to be reinforced with the culture to incite the right behaviors.
  • Culture empowers people to create, solve, and grow all the while enabling the organization to achieve, build, and realize the vision of what is possible for customers and stakeholders.
  • Vision and culture need to be wrapped together in order to unbind the ability within each team member.

In 2012, Peter Aceto, the President and CEO of ING DIRECT – a Canadian bank with 1.78 million customers and over $38 billion in assets – delivered a speech where he waxed lyrical about being a socialCEO. Two points come to mind from that speech. Early on in the talk, Peter said, “I believe we are at the confluence of two revolutions – a social revolution and a technology revolution.” He went on to say later in the speech, “How people work and make decisions is not new, however, technology and social networks has allowed this type of sharing to happen faster, with a broader group of people and outside of traditional boundaries.”

Make this standard practice: Praise in Public, Coach in Private | Leadership | Scoop.it
Across a business career that now spans well over 27 years, I have had the chance to experience and learn a wide variety of lessons from a wide range of inspirations. In some instances it took me years to realize the power and impact of a key lesson (as described in a recent essay “Execution is THE Strategy) and in some situations I have been applying and sharing a lesson that I learned years ago, the source of which is now lost in the fog of time. Thus let me preface this essay to say that I am certain I owe the following idea to some historic boss, teacher, or peer and I officially apologize for not being able to more appropriately credit the source today.

Unlearning is a leadership skill

Unlearning is a leadership skill | Leadership | Scoop.it
Years ago in one of my first leadership roles, I was nervous about taking over a department that was new to me. I was seen as a strong manager but I knew that I had a steep learning curve ahead to understand the ins and outs of the work of the department. At the time I believed that I could not lead effectively if I did not know more about the day-to-day work than anyone else. I pored over reports, data, and manuals, attended endless meetings – and never asked questions of my team out of fear that they would see me as weak. I felt I had to know everything there was to know about our area – and that belief made the transition a lot harder than it needed to be.

Simon Sinek: How Extraordinary Leaders Evolve

Simon Sinek: How Extraordinary Leaders Evolve | Leadership | Scoop.it

 

Leadership writer and top TED speaker Simon Sinek explains how great leaders create a circle of safety for their teams...

 

The leaders control the circle of safety. To be the leader, you have to belong to our tribe.

 

We have to feel like you serve us, and we would happily serve you.

 

A "circle of safety" makes sense in a literal way for our ancestors, but how does that apply in a business?

.

.

.

 

How can a leader use this idea of safety to improve his or her businesses?

.

.

.

 

So what about when the circle of safety fails?

.

.

.

 

What can a leader do if there's the modern-day business equivalent of a saber-tooth tiger attack?

.

.

.

 

What can someone do to be a better leader?

.

.

.

 

What if they're a manager rather than a CEO?

.

.

.

 

Real leaders are the very few willing to sacrifice themselves for their people.

 

When they do, we will do anything to see that our leader's visions are advanced.

 

That’s why we call them leaders: they go first...

(From the article): Leadership has one definition: leaders are willing to sacrifice themselves for their people. As a senior leader you have to extend the circle wider, and if you have 3 people that work for you, your job is to work for them.

 

Real leaders are the very few willing to sacrifice themselves for their people. When they do, we will do anything to see that our leader's visions are advanced.

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, November 16, 2013 5:05 AM

 

SUMMARY

 

For a long time, we believed that people were rational, logical agents, driven by self-interest, greed, and desire. In recent years, we have begun to realize that people have another driver that is of equal, if not greater, importance: the drive to be social.

 

The studies tell the story:

a)  Giving to charity activates the brain's reward system more than winning money.

b)  Painkillers like Tylenol relieve social pain the same way they relieve physical pain.

c)  Being socially rejected can lower your I.Q. score by 20% and cut your GRE score nearly in half.

d)  Seeing a friend regularly has the same effect on our well-being as making an extra $100,000.

e)  Volunteering to help others regularly produces the same increase in well-being as making an extra $50,000.

f)   When an employee meets a person who benefits from their work, that employee can double their productivity.

g)  People will pay $30,000 to be recognized as a high-status employee.

h)  And, finally, being socially connected is literally as good for your health as quitting smoking.

 

Social activity matters more than we have realized. Yet institutions and organizations, from political systems to hospitals, schools and corporations, have been built based on a different set of beliefs:

a)  that people are motivated by money,

b)  that physical -- not social -- health is most important

c)  and that social needs are "nice to have."

 

A boss who knows what his staff members really care about will be able to develop a better team environment.

 

We are deeply social beings, with social needs mattering more than physical needs in many situations. Maslow may have been wrong: Social may not be up the pyramid, it may be down at the base with physical needs. Until this insight makes its way into how we design our institutions, we may continue to see less than 30% of people in our organizations actively engaged in their work.
