Social Leadership: Communities and Meaning

Social Leadership: Communities and Meaning | Leadership | Scoop.it

The challenge for organisations is this: they need to identify and cultivate social leadership skills, whilst at the same time being magnetic to new talent. They need to create and tolerate the socially collaborative spaces that these communities need, both from a technological and moderation perspective. You need to be seen as a creative and innovative place to work, a true Social Age business with a mindset and policies to prove it.

Excellent scoop!  Relevant and significant. 

 

From the article:

 

I would submit we find ourselves at a very similar crossroads today. We are still in need of hope and change – we are still in a crisis of leadership.


~Some of the actors may have changed seats, but the cast remains the same.


This is not a democrat versus republican issue or a liberal versus conservative issue. The issue is one that extends beyond parties, philosophies and geographic boarders.


~The issue is simply this; we have forgotten what leadership looks like.

I really appreciated the insight on this article about sponsored content.  From the article:

 

LinkedIn’s sponsored posts have been highly effective for content sharing up to this point, too. They have actually outperformed standard LinkedIn CPC ads. Before crafting an article, think about how it will fit into the context of your social media distribution efforts.

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.

John Michel's curator insight, October 11, 2013 2:39 AM

Most companies obsess over performance, particularly financial performance. The root cause of performance shortfalls can often be found in the lack of clarity around purpose and values. Are purpose and values regular factors in your decision making and reward allocation? Or does hitting the earnings-per-share each quarter trump all?

An insight-packed chat with Simon Sinek!  Worth your time!

Richard Dillard, PMP, SSBB, ABD 7.1's curator insight, October 12, 2013 1:23 PM

"The worst leaders are the ones that think they have to know as much or more than the poeple who work with them." - Simon Sinek

 

Simon may be on to something basic here, in spite of his misplaced reference to evolution, his misunderstanding of the human mind when it comes to self-preservation (the first law of nature), his miscomparison of human beings to animals and the obvious implications of overlooking the moral law giver when it comes to right and wrong (the first law of human nature).  In other words, while there is nothing in evolution that explains the imperative to tell the truth as apposed to telling a lie or accounts for developing an "attitude of giving" or a wllingness to sacrifice for others, we can and should take seriously this idea of accepting that we, as leaders, don't (and can't, by definition, if you accept that teams outperform individuals even when that individual is the team lead) know more than those who work with us and every time we act as if we do, it signals the beginning of a demise and our failure as leaders. 

 

We should also altogether support Simon's rejection of the leadership of Jack Welch (GE) and his veneration of the leadership of Jim Sinegal (COSTCO). 

 

In fact, many of the ideas presented by Simon in this interview are consistent with the things I wrote about in my latest book, but we'd likely differ on the cause (whether the first or most proximate) of a Leadership - Culture - Performance connection in producing the effects being endorsed.  The obvious question now is, does it really matter where we ascribe the cause of right and effective leadership?  I believe it does matter and provide the rationale on pages 96 and 97 of Real Leadership! Are You Ready?
