Beware the Black Hole of Transformation

Beware the Black Hole of Transformation | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
The primary jobs of the leader or business sponsor are to do the following:

Ensure the transformation is defined in terms of business outcomes.
Sell the vision of the new transformation across the business at every opportunity.
Keep the team focused on the business objectives and stop scope creep from taking them off task.
Engage the team and the right leadership to drive the transformation
Facilitate getting the right information up to the sponsor and back down to the team executing the transformation, so that everyone can make smart, business-oriented decisions.
Break down the barriers that naturally form when the status quo is challenged.
To properly execute the project, the right leader also needs to assemble the right team, which includes appropriate representation from all stakeholders as well as a day-to-day project leader experienced in transformation project management.

Leading in a World Without Secrets

It means we are moving into an era in which every company and organization must expect that secrets will get out. You cannot afford defenses that will fully protect you. Consistent with the philosophy espoused in HBR way back in 2003 in the article The Myth of Secure Computing, business leaders will need to decide which of their information assets are so valuable that they want to invest a lot to protect them, and which they can’t afford to protect vigorously. The realistic expectation for the number of secrets that will leak every year from any company will be greater than zero.

How should leaders adjust? There are two ways to prepare for the possibility of people trying to get at your secrets. You can protect them better (which, as already stated, might get expensive). Or you can act to minimize the consequences of leakage.

Your Margin of Power

Your Margin of Power | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
As a leader, you already know you should manage your time better and deploy your resources more strategically. But to really address the problem, you need to look at the underlying dynamic that constrains leadership capacity: your margin of power.

The concept of a margin of power, designed to help professionals discover the limits of their work capacity, was developed by the educational psychologist Howard McClusky. Though he remains relatively unknown in business circles, McClusky was an influential and pioneering theorist in adult education. As a professor at the University of Michigan in the 1930s (he remained there until his death in 1982), he wondered why some adults could successfully start and complete new projects, goals, or initiatives time after time while others became quickly overwhelmed and unable to continue. His research eventually led to a simple formula that expresses a relationship between the “load” a person carries (the demands placed on them by their family, work, civic duties, and their own ambitions) and their available “power” to carry it (their own energy, skill, competence, and integrity, along with the support they get from their communities and employers).

Getting Fairness Right

Getting Fairness Right | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
Fairness isn’t just nice, it’s important

You know that you’re supposed to be fair. What you may not know is how important it is. As Kathryn Dekas, a PhD member of the People Operations team at Google observes:

“Fairness perceptions are very powerful. They affect how people think about almost everything at work, but especially how valued they think they are, how satisfied they are with their jobs, how much they trust their supervisors and their commitment to the organization.”

When people think you’re treating them fairly, they will work harder. They will pitch in to help get the job done. They’re likely to have better morale and take more initiative. Bob Sutton describes what happens when they don’t think you’re fair:

“Numerous studies show that when people feel as if they’re getting a raw deal from their boss or employer, they give less in return; bad behavior runs rampant; and effort, efficiency, quality, civility, and other excellence metrics plummet.”

The Best Leaders Are Great Coaches 

The Best Leaders Are Great Coaches  | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
Great leadership is made up of numerous different elements and roles, which come together differently in different leadership styles. One role that’s often overlooked is that of serving as a coach.
If you’ve ever played or trained under a great coach, you already understand how vast their influence can be.
The best leaders, like the best coaches, give those around them permission to succeed and know how to help them reach their potential.
Here are some of the most important coaching ideas shared by great leaders—ideas that can benefit anyone’s leadership in any field:
Communicate with wisdom. As a coach and leader, you need exceptional communication skills. Your words should make people sit up, listen and feel inspired to act.
Challenge the unchallenged. It’s important to know how to challenge others without making them feel criticized or scorned.
Raise the bar. Set and maintain high personal standards. Keep raising the bar so others can follow suit.
Invest in teamwork. Teach those around you to value great collaboration even more than individual achievement. Demonstrate the truth of TEAM: Together Everyone Achieves More

Steve Bax's curator insight, December 5, 2016 3:27 AM
Very good article by Josh Bersin in HBR here. In addition to the comment from Kenneth Mikkelsen, I find the comment on the importance of culture very interesting. 
Bersin says "As we’ve studied digital leadership over the last few years, we find something else important: Culture is key. Success is largely dependent on people sharing information with each other, partnering, and continuously educating themselves. This is able to happen when you build a collective, transparent, and deeply shared culture. CEOs who are digital leaders are continuously reinforcing the culture, communicating values, and aligning people around the culture whenever something goes wrong." The shift to more use and sharing of metrics is revealing too.

How Microsoft Uses a Growth Mindset to Develop Leaders

Research shows that managers see far more leadership potential in their employees when their companies adopt a growth mindset — the belief that talent should be developed in everyone, not viewed as a fixed, innate gift that some have and others don’t. But what are those organizations doing to nurture their talent?

To explore this question, let’s look at Microsoft, which is deliberately creating a growth-mindset culture and, in that context, rethinking its approach to development. As a result, previously unidentified — yet skilled — leaders are rising to levels they might not have in a traditional development model.

The CEO is generally the bellwether of a company’s culture, and under Satya Nadella’s leadership, Microsoft is emphasizing learning and creativity. Nadella believes this is how leaders are made, and that idea is reflected in several programs, which we’ll describe here.

We All Make the Choice to Transact or Transform 

We All Make the Choice to Transact or Transform  | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
As leaders, managers, and contributors, we make the choice every day to transact or transform in our encounters with colleagues and customers.  Many opt for the former, exhibiting the bare minimum amount of energy to reasonably fulfill their obligation to the other party. These people transact. In most cases their firms perpetuate a transactional culture that flows from the corporate offices out into the customer environment.

You see the transaction effect in the big, impersonal retail stores where cashiers seem to be trained to not make eye contact and almost never smile. You experience it at the airline counter and your doctor’s office and in so many other encounters in your daily life. These organizations and those in them who run the business simply don’t care.
