Peter Drucker, considered the leadership guru of the twentieth notes that, “The leader of the past may have been a person who knew how to tell, but certainly the leader of the future will be a person who knows how to ask.”

Efficienarta's insight:

One of the more rewarding periods of my business career included a leadership meeting weber of CEO adjourned discussion of a topic because the team were not asking questions ............. When we discussed the topic at the following meeting we had a lively debate both initially in a  "seek to understand" phase and then later in what amounted to brainstorming of potential solutions.

Celebrate mistakes: Creating a culture of forgiveness

“Zone in on these questions to ask the team:What were the positives to the failed approach?What could we do differently to make it work next time?Is the benefit of trying this new tactic worth the risks involved? How can we minimize those risks?”

Don Dea's curator insight, May 21, 12:05 AM

Creating a positive environment where people are encouraged to try new things will benefit the company, the team and every individual, even when new attempts are not always successful. By providing the kind of leadership that celebrates mistakes in addition to the successes, you can generate the energy that will foster new ideas and keep employees engaged in delivering great results.

Leaders Are Willing to Get Uncomfortable - Kellogg Insight

Leaders Are Willing to Get Uncomfortable - Kellogg Insight | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
Most leadership courses focus on how best to influence others—how to communicate more effectively, how to build successful teams, and how to motivate an organization to achieve a desired result.

But for Harry Kraemer, a clinical professor of strategy at the Kellogg School and author of Becoming the Best: Build a World-Class Organization Through Values-Based Leadership, the Dale Carnegie approach misses a crucial first step. “It actually starts one step further back,” he says. “Before I can lead others, I had better be able to lead myself.”

PRINCIPLES OVER PROCESS

Repeatable processes and procedures add great value in stable and predictable times. Those are not the times we live in today or likely in the future. Strategy that works has got to be based on something that proves successful in unpredictable, fast moving, and changing times. Principles, not process and procedures, provide the overarching guidance in any situation for making the right decisions and taking the best action.

A move toward the Advantage Strategy Paradigm begins with the adoption and commitment to a set of principles that guides all executives in the decisions and actions they take related to developing, planning, and executing strategy. Principles provide a broad context for strategic action and guidelines that can be communicated and taught at all levels of the organization, eventually becoming part of the organization’s culture. Throwing out standard process and procedures in favor of a handful of powerful but easily remembered principles for managing strategy will soon begin to show improvements in your business results.

Here are the five principles that guide Advantage Strategy:

LEADING MINDS INSTEAD OF MANAGING BEHAVIOUR | Ivey Business Journal | Leadership Values | Scoop.it

We are in the midst of a paradigm shift that, at times, can be disconcerting. But if we embrace the new worldview that science gives us, we stand to be far more effective managers. The place to start is with an understanding of three fundamental discoveries about how the brain works.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, February 28, 3:31 AM

In light of this new understanding of how the mind works, conventional management practices no longer make sense.


We now know that a manager’s performance feedback and the use of rewards to motivate produce the opposite of what we intend. Organizations waste resources vainly trying to thwart our natural inclinations. Our quantifiable objectives cause us to focus on the short term at the expense of the long term.


Ben Olmos's curator insight, March 1, 4:48 PM

Feedback is a very important activity managers perform often in their role; however, for many it is difficult to understand why feedback is not effective.  After all, it's not as if the two people sitting in the room are speaking a different language.  How to deliver feedback is a hot topic.  In fact, there are a number of management training courses and articles written on the best and most effective ways to deliver feedback; however, may the approach for providing feedback is all wrong.  Jacobs explains that there is emerging research providing insight on why we may need to change our view of feedback and the effect it has upon those receiving it.  According to recent research, criticism has a negative effect on performance, which is probably not all that surprising.  However, it has also been found that there is no correlation between praise and improvement either.  Take a look at the following to understand how managing behavior is less effective than leading minds.  

Owen Roper's curator insight, March 19, 9:23 AM

In the words of Napoleon Hill, If you can control your mind, your thoughts. Then what you can believe, you can achieve, you will receive it. The Masters Plan goes hand in hand with the Master Mind theory.
