“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” — Jack Welch, Former CEO of General Electric

Efficienarta's curator insight, January 29, 2014 3:47 AM

This paragraph particularly resonates with my experience: "Through cultivating skills and providing opportunities, leadership can be a part of the human potential movement and ultimately increase productivity by managing skills and creating a more pleasant workplace through individual appreciation and positive reinforcement."

9 Remarkably Effective Ways to Make Change Work for You

9 Remarkably Effective Ways to Make Change Work for You | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
Adopt fluid and situational hierarchies
Fluid, situational hierarchies can quickly adapt to fast-changing environments, morphing to fit tomorrow's needs instead of forcing organizations to constantly play catch-up with structures designed to meet the needs of yesterday. At Egon Zehnder, one of the largest executive search firms in the world, with annual billings of more than $300 million, the rigid hierarchy typical of a large, international firm has been supplanted by a fluid organization that emphasizes high levels of cooperation, communication, and teamwork, resulting in productivity that is 60 percent higher than the industry average.

How leaders change

All leaders can change poor behaviors. As adults personal change may seem difficult, but it’s absolutely possible when there is:

Insight by the leader that they have a behavior that is damaging to them and to others. You can’t change what you don’t know about. We all have blind spots and behavior that we choose to dismiss as “just who we are”. Personal change begins with knowing that something we do has a negative impact on our ability to lead at our best. Getting feedback is a start.

Drive to make a change. Leaders who emotionally grasp that their unseemly behavior is impacting others and their organization have the best chance of becoming motivated to make positive personal changes. When they can also picture a positive future that is different based on the changes they make, chances are that they’ll be driven to move forward.

Simplicity ≠ Simplistic

Simplicity ≠ Simplistic | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
Simplicity is not a starting point, neither is it a destination, it is a continuous iterative process.

Via Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein
Efficienarta's insight:

An economic consulting firm that I used to work for made a brand promise of "Unravelling complexity. Revealing simplicity". This served as a very powerful driver of our internal behaviour - from the structuring of spreadsheet workbooks to the construction of arguments for use in court, in front of the European Commission etc. My sense is that in many organisations, the people in the middle of the hierarchy honesty believe that complexity is good - perhaps partly because they have a belief that managing such complexity provides them with more job opportunities .....

Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's curator insight, January 13, 12:17 AM

The Laws of Simplicity: 

  1. The First Law: The opposite of Simplicity is not Complexity but Confusion. 
  2. The Second Law: The path to Simplicity is through Complexity.
  3. The Third Law: Complexity is never eliminated but can only be reduced or concealed. 
  4. The Fourth Law: Simplicity is achieved by finding the right balance between usability and usefulness.


Amrita says it best: "Simplicity is not a starting point, neither is it a destination, it is a continuous iterative process" - Do you agree?
