Tom Hood's insight:

Great post worth a read and fitting as we prepare for our 4th class of Leadership Academy next week in Timonium.

 

This quote sume up our leadership philosophy perfectly, “I cannot tell you what to do. I can only inspire you what to do.”

 

And the four essential skills are all part of our program as well:

 

1) Observe and respond - we call this being self-aware in the moment and understanding the context surrounding you as leader and the situations you find yourself in;

 

2) Know your stand - for us this is knowing your strengths and values and those of your organization. We agree that your "personal values are your anchor" and we help our young profesisonals connect to their values using the latest research form the growing field of "positive psycholgy";

 

3) Leading Virtual Teams - we call this skill network leadership and revolves around both physical and virtual teams as well as up, down, inside and out;

 

4) Promote Collaboration - this is the core of our program, how to facilitate and promote collaborative work, build consensus and allow peoplke to "weigh in in order to buy-in". See our post The # 1 Skill You Need Today http://cpa.tc/2j0 ;

 

Finally, I agree that "Millennial leaders are uniquely positioned to show us Gen Xers, Boomers, and even a smattering of employees from the Silent Generation how work gets done in the 21st century."

 Here is a whitepaper on leadership from our first class of our Leadership Academy titled, What Got You Here, Won't get You There http://cpa.tc/2j1 ;

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | Leadership & Learning | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Tom Hood's insight:

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...

Don Dea's curator insight, August 5, 1:09 AM

These following two mindsets represent the extreme ends on either side of a spectrum.

fixed mindset comes from the belief that your qualities are carved in stone – who you are is who you are, period. Characteristics such as intelligence, personality, and creativity are fixed traits, rather than something that can be developed. growth mindset comes from the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through effort. Yes, people differ greatly – in aptitude, talents, interests, or temperaments - but everyone can change and grow through application and experience.

It’s very possible to be somewhere in the middle, and to lean a certain way in one area of life, and a different way in other areas. Dweck writes about them as a simple either-or throughout the book for the sake of simplicity. Your mindset likely varies from area to area. Your views may be different for artistic talent, intelligence, personality, or creativity.

Tom Hood's insight:

Insightful piece on adapting in the pace of rapid change. "Searching for the magic bullet is a distracting waste of resources. Adapting is a game of singles, not home runs."

 

The leaders job is to set the direction (vision and strategy), and more importantly pace, or speed of adapting for the organization. Alignment of all activities to the direction creates unity and energy. Involvement of your teams creates safety and buy-in.

Why Finding Meaning At Work Is More Important Than Feeling Happy

Why Finding Meaning At Work Is More Important Than Feeling Happy | Leadership & Learning | Scoop.it
Get off the monotonous treadmill of your job, and seek a different running path of meaning on your journey toward career satisfaction.
Tom Hood's insight:

Why meaning matters (at work). With 70% of the workforce DISENGAGED (according to Gallup) what could a boost of engagement, alignment, and meaning give to your team?

 

This has been a major part of our conversation over the past two days at our MACPA Leadership Academy. This group of emerging leaders developed four critical themes to their future success as 1) Communication; 2) Collaboration; 3) Anticipation; and 4) Talent development and training. 

 

I like how Jessica summarizes this as:

 

- Become a master job crafter (coupling, decoupling, rearranging tasks and fine-tuning the purpose and meaning of the work).

- Ignore the what and heed the why (ala Simon Sinek).

- Remember that other people matter (and everyone has good ideas).

This recap is from a fellow "Association" friends, Deirdre Reid,  and captures the essence of one of my must-attend conferences, The DigitalNow.


In one of my sessions we found that 10 out of 10 associations were experiencing severe to moderate disruption in their business models. Your point, "Associations are on the edge of their comfort zone right now dealing with new ways of associating, learning and communicating, new technology, new competition, and new expectations. This is also a time of new opportunity. Associations who push through their fear will become stronger and better positioned to be agents of transformation for their members." says it well.

"As I write about in Leading from the Edge (ASTD Press), one of the core competencies of leaders, especially at the global level, is the ability to focus on multiple, and often seemingly conflicting, priorities. When it comes to innovation, this is particularly important. Successful leaders must sustain value through innovations at the core that sustain today’s business model(s) while at the same time creating new (and often disruptive forms of) value for the future by innovating at the edge."

Via Morag Barrett
Tom Hood's insight:

Are you future ready?

 

I love the idea of  thinking about the future of your organization and then  writing down the skills they will need in the future. We actually did this exercise with our team (MACPA/BLI) a few months ago and identified, flexibility,  collaboration, adaptability, strategic thinking, empathy, and a few others. Although we used #MBSN and sticky notes :)

 

Then we helped the AICPA do this with over one thousand CPAs in 2011 by using two sets of research by futurists looking out to 2025, then asking what skills would they need to be successful in the future. They answered Leadership, Communication, Strategic Thinking, Collaboration & Synthesis, and  Technologically Savvy. These competendies are the foundation of our Business Learning Institute. 

 

Start with your strategy as an organization (and even in your career) and then  ask yourself what skills do I need to be successful in the future? Start learning those skills and you will be future proof, at least for a little while...

Teach the Key Ingredients for Leadership Success

Teach the Key Ingredients for Leadership Success | Leadership & Learning | Scoop.it

Claudio Fernández-Aráoz, a world expert on hiring, did a study of C-level leaders who were fired. The conclusion: they were hired for their intelligence and business expertise, but fired for weakness in emotional intelligence – usually the social variety.

 

When I looked at competence studies done by companies to identify the skill sets of their outstanding performers – what sets top leaders apart from average – the vast majority fell in the emotional intelligence category.

 

With a fresh crop of college grads heading into a tight job market, I wish they had had help in developing their emotional intelligence skills during their studies. But with a very few exceptions colleges ignore this crucial skill set for success. Students acquire these abilities on their own time, and rather randomly, depending on happenstance.


Via Anne Leong, Wise Leader™, Roger Francis, David Hain
Tom Hood's insight:

Having just finished our fifth class of Leadership Academy for our emerging CPA leaders, this article resonated  with me. While the notion of EQ as a critical leadership quality is on point, I think it must be in the context of how leadership is changing in this hyper-connected, rapidly changing world. When we asked our emerging leaders to compare and contrast leadership across the ages, they identified the common traits we all know - vision, communication, passion, and authority. Yet when looking at the current state, they added words like collaborative, transparent, more communication,.

 

These skills include the ability to engage and inspire followers to a shared vision and action. The other critical piece is to 'know themselves' in a way they can be that authentic leader with their own unique style rather than trying to fit some standard leadership model that forces them to change. We do this with Strengths-Finders and Values to help them become self-aware.

 

Thus I see the idea of EQ to include specific group dynamics, collaboration, listening, and making your thinking visible to others. These skills can be taught and developed and we are seeing emerging leaders  able to apply these as they grow into the kind of future leaders we will need.

With such a focus today on teaching for exams, maybe we need an exam in leadership to get this kind of learning embedded?

Robin Martin's curator insight, July 4, 1:51 PM

Absolutely...however, students need to have the "grit'" and tenacity to survive as well as to thrive in this world. Some, if not most, of us Boomers learned this during our lifetimes, most likely the "hard way," so to speak.

 

Just being able to focus in the digital world for younger people (mainly younger children) has to be a challenge in itself! While the digital age is perfect for them to learn as quickly as their brains are moving, somewhere there has to be a delicate "balance" to keep them grounded. 

 

Yes, we do need to align the skill sets needed to survive and become great leaders with what we're teaching young children. I predict an education overhaul in the very near future!

Dan Burrus doesn't think so (and neither do I).

 

"So whatever big thing you’re thinking about doing, think bigger!

Cost of Finance Teams Spiking: Report

Cost of Finance Teams Spiking: Report | Leadership & Learning | Scoop.it
Companies have spent years reducing the average finance team’s budget to nearly 1% of revenue, but that figure is suddenly spiking.
Tom Hood's insight:

What's the ROI of your finance / accounting teams?

 

Great article from WSJ and I agree that the cost of finance/accounting teams is increasing.

 

The question is, is it worth it? The expansion of finance/accounting responsibility for innovation, operations and strategy beyond the traditional scorekeeping is adding value to businesses in new ways and hopefully much more than the cost.

 

We are entering a major talent war for finance and accounting talent and those with the right set of skills are in more and more demand. As the Corporate finance/accounting roles have broadened since the great recession, the need for more and more soft or "success skills" is costing more and is likely to continue rising. The other side of the coin is that accounting and finance personnel are more likely to be in value-added role working along side business leaders, involved in innovation, and much more involved in strategy. Thus the value proposition is increasing hopefully more than the cost.

 

If you are an aspiring CFO or corporate accountant, the question is do you have the right skills to work in this "new normal". Skills like collaboration and synthesis, strategic thinking, leadership, business acumen, communication, and being technologically savvy. That is what we are seeing demand for in our work with large public company finance teams.

Decisions like this will be more frequent and require CEOs and CFOs to be looking forward and constantly evaluating their business portfolio for emerging new business lines and fading old ones.
