Why Good Managers Are So Rare

Why Good Managers Are So Rare | Leadership Values | Scoop.it

Gallup has found that one of the most important decisions companies make is simply whom they name manager. Yet our analysis suggests that they usually get it wrong. In fact, Gallup finds that companies fail to choose the candidate with the right talent for the job 82% of the time.

 

Bad managers cost businesses billions of dollars each year, and having too many of them can bring down a company. The only defense against this massive problem is a good offense, because when companies get these decisions wrong, nothing fixes it. Businesses that get it right, however, and hire managers based on talent will thrive and gain a significant competitive advantage.

What values do you use to help make decisions on Manager appointments? Do you put enough effort into selecting and developing first line supervisors / managers? (As Tom Peters puts it - a most critical strategic decision) .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7ue3XwGMAw)

(From the article):Very few people are able to pull off all five of the requirements of good management. Most managers end up with team members who are at best indifferent toward their work — or are at worst hell-bent on spreading their negativity to colleagues and customers. However, when companies can increase their number of talented managers and double the rate of engaged employees, they achieve, on average, 147% higher earnings per share than their competition.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, March 17, 2014 1:59 PM

Great managers begin with great people.  When they bring out the best in themselves, they bring out the best in others. ~quote #genuineleaders #leadership

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?

Integrity: The cornerstone of great leadership

Turn on your TV. Tap your news app. Scan the paper’s stories of the day. It seems that everywhere you turn, a lot of the news points to leaders who are either struggling with or striving to prove their integrity.
No doubt, you may feel like integrity is at stake nowadays. Just think of what’s at the heart of the banter taking place among the 2016 presidential hopefuls. Or, consider how the resignation of high-profile executives due to integrity-related issues almost seems like an everyday affair. While integrity may seem like a virtue of the past, for truly Disciplined Leaders, it’s a value of the present and a guiding principle for the future of their organizations, their communities and even the world.
What exactly is “integrity”? It’s about being honest in all you say and do. In the realm of business and leadership, honesty is a strategy for achieving success, or a way to do things in a moral, ethical manner. It’s also a characteristic of Disciplined Leaders, or those who consistently excel at using the right mindset and actions to inspire transformation and drive results.
