...4. Turns out leadership really is personal

Bosses are typically viewed as arrogant individuals who drive people using objectives and metrics. One study found that 60% of employees are miserable – not because of low pay, poor workplace benefits, or insufficient vacation days – but because they don’t feel connected at work.

Some of these are confirming my intuition, but all of them are right on the money and it's good to see the research.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, January 21, 2013 2:33 PM

for some reason, the link takes us to the last page of the report.  Its worthwhile to click on the #1 and read the whole report.

 

I totally agree with David Hain on his commentary, great to see the research!

Eric Van Camp's insight:

Habits make or brake you. What habit do you want to change as a leader.
Is it the unintentionally provoking questions you raise every morning?
Is it the urge to micromanage every day, every hour, every minute?
Or are there any behaviors you would like to add....effortless.

What Gets in the Way of Listening

What Gets in the Way of Listening | Leadership and EQ | Scoop.it

As your role grows in scale and influence, so too must your ability to listen. But listening is one of the toughest skills to master — and requires uncovering deeper barriers within oneself.


While tactically there are many ways to strengthen your listening skills, you must focus on the deeper, internal issues at stake to really improve. Listening is a skill that enables you to align people, decisions, and agendas. You cannot have leadership presence without hearing what others have to say.

Five Ways to Improve Employee Engagement Now

Five Ways to Improve Employee Engagement Now | Leadership and EQ | Scoop.it
Only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work. Managers everywhere can help solve this problem with the right strategies -- and reap the benefits of higher employee engagement.
Eric Van Camp's insight:

Engagement is essential...
I would like to add a 6th tool.
Giving feedback, whether it is corrective or supportive as often as possible.

Think about it, you would probably never arrive each morning without feedback of traffic lights, other drivers, the police, your wife and children, etc... Feedback let us stay on our track and gives us opportunities to know whether we are driving in the right direction or not.
Therefore learning how to give the correct feedback is one of the most essential tools, leaders can acquire. It is even more true for the leaders themselves, because those are the ones who get feedback the least!
So leaders, go out, learn how to give feedback AND learn others how to give feedback to you!

How to influence people

By giving them Feedback!

Eric Van Camp's insight:

As people incorporate changes into their routines, let them know what they are doing well and what needs improvement as they go. 


Feedback provides reinforcement of the change and also the opportunity for course correction.


When we hear the word “feedback,” we typically think of difficult one-on-one conversations telling people their “opportunities for improvement.” 

While that is one form of feedback, consider these other ways to let people know how they are doing

  •  Audio or visual cues indicating a task has been performed correctly or incorrectly
  • Data, charts, test results or other information that indicate progress
  • Employee surveys or other anonymous feedback tools.  


 The people who need the most feedback during change are leaders. 


Since it is typically daunting to provide leaders with feedback, they are also least likely to actually receive feedback.  In your role as a change agent, it is imperative to find a way to tell leaders what they are doing to hinder the change effort, and not to forget to let them know what they are doing right.  If you don’t tell them, how else will they know?

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, August 29, 2013 4:54 AM

Great piece on StoryTelling on HBR blog. Author of the new book 'True Story' argues that telling just a story is not enough. Storydoing companies "advance their narrative through action, not communication." How to recognise a StoryDoing company?

 

* They have a story
* The story is about a larger ambition to make the world or people's lives better
* The story is understood and cared about by senior leadership outside of marketing
* That story is being used to drive tangible action throughout the company: product development, HR policies, compensation, etc.
* These actions add back up to a cohesive whole
* Customers and partners are motivated to engage with the story and are actively using it to advance their own stories

The sad trends highlighted in this article have become common in today's organizations for the past 5 years.
