1 Out of Every 2 Managers Is Terrible at Accountability

1 Out of Every 2 Managers Is Terrible at Accountability | Leadership with a splash of empathy | Scoop.it

Out of all the things we expect of leaders — taking charge, setting strategy, empowering people, driving execution, you name it — what one single behavior would you guess is most often neglected or avoided among executives? Seeing the big picture? Nope. Delegating? Nope. Mapping out detailed project plans? Nope. Although many upper-level managers don't do these things enough, by far and away the single-most shirked responsibility of executives is holding people accountable. No matter how tough a game they may talk about performance, when it comes to holding people's feet to the fire, leaders step back from the heat.

 

In Harvard's database of more than 5,400 upper-level managers from the US, Europe, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific gathered since 2010, 46% are rated "too little" on the item, "Holds people accountable — firm when they don't deliver."

Leadership Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone

Leadership Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone | Leadership with a splash of empathy | Scoop.it

Here Lolly Daskal provides some inspiring examples of how leaders can and should move outside of their comfort zones in order to be effective. 

 

The risk of staying in your comfort zone she argues is that your organization diminishes because you did not have the courage to make changes, take risks and speak out.

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, October 22, 1:23 AM

There are those that thrive on being out of their comfort zone and those that don't like to move anywhere outside of it.  Personally I think that you need to be in both places at different times.  Sometimes people need to consolidate who they are and where they are, gaining confidence from a feeling of growing competence gathered from being fairly within one's zone of comfort. 


However it can be too easy to get stuck there, and where learning is concerned, there is undoubtedly rich potential when we sail out into new and unfamiliar waters - provided that is that we take time to reflect!

(From the article): Groups actually “catch” the emotional state of their leaders. I used to feel I had the right to get angry, pout, or emotionally cut myself off from others if things did not go well. I was being “authentic,” or so I thought. While not discounting the importance of authenticity, I have learned that I must bring a positive and hopeful tone to my leadership daily. When I experience something painful, and it is appropriate to share it, I do it with those closest to me in a way that actually can build trust.

Facilitation with organisational effect

Workshops, meetings and seminars drive momentum in a change project. Even more so, if they are facilitated skilfully. 

Workshops, meetings and seminars are held to create ownership of required changes – and ensure buy-in from managers, employees or customers. Most organisations involve a facilitator to make sure that this happens. 

To qualify as an excellent facilitator, you not only need to manage the meeting; you also need to help the group achieve specific results – without taking a stand or becoming involved in their practical work. The facilitator is the catalyst that drives the session to an effective result. This calls for an astute awareness of setting, purpose and the people involved.

A Guide To Co-Leadership: Why It’s Hard, Why It’s Good, And How To Make It Work | TechCrunch

A Guide To Co-Leadership: Why It’s Hard, Why It’s Good, And How To Make It Work | TechCrunch | Leadership with a splash of empathy | Scoop.it
This post is a brief guide to co-leading. I’ll outline why having co-leaders is hard, why it’s a source of enhanced productivity, creativity, and joy when it works, and some tactics for success. 

I’m going to use the term co-leading throughout. I’m focused primarily on co-CEO relationships, but I think what I write applies equally to co-founders and other collaborative executive structures.

I’m writing primarily from my experience co-founding and subsequently co-CEO’ing HowAboutWe with Brian Schechter, my best friend since childhood. Over about five years, we grew the company to 100 people, and then — this past summer — sold it to IAC. We’re still best friends.

"Two can be exponentially more powerful than one."  Thoughtful piec on co-leading from @schidkrout

donhornsby's curator insight, October 20, 7:52 AM

(From the article): Know your own weaknesses. If you are incapable of seeing your weaknesses — and particularly the things you do that are hard for your co-leaders, even if they aren’t categorically counterproductive — then you will end up in a prideful, defensive, unhelpful stance. If you see your weaknesses then you will be able to build a balanced view of the relationship dynamics that will support rapid de-escalation and effective collaboration. Your vulnerability will be fuel. Any time you spend being defensive is time wasted.

(From the article): Indeed, it is a leader's job to address issues as they arise. If we choose to avoid conflict at any price, the price may be far greater than we are willing to pay. The impact of conflict avoidance can ripple throughout the organization and cripple the future growth and success of the business. So, embrace conflict resolution. After all, conflict can be very healthy, too. It is often how we get the best answers to the toughest questions.

How to Stay Focused for a Major Project

How to Stay Focused for a Major Project | Leadership with a splash of empathy | Scoop.it
The most important thing is to recognize up front that we have to prepare. If you were going to pitch in the World Series tomorrow, you wouldn’t just show up on game night as if it were any other Tuesday. You can’t just wing something like that.

You would make sure your head was in the game, that you were physically and emotionally ready, that you were focused on the win. It’s that way with any major project—at least if we want to succeed.

My team and I launch several key products for our business each year. We do a lot to minimize the stress and maximize our efforts, but there are always times and tasks that require far more of us than the usual. If I’m unprepared, it can feel like I’ve been hit by a truck.

Here are six tactics I use to prevent that from happening, when I’m preparing to undertake any major project. Some are big, some are small, but together they help me stay focused and get the job done. I bet most of these will work for you too.
