The Hazards of Email

Bring up the subject of workplace email during conversations with C.E.O.’s, and the mood often shifts. Email is a hot-button issue, and clearly a source of endless frustration.

The problem, of course, is that for all the obvious benefits of email in speeding communication, it is also a dangerous trap. Emails are too easily misinterpreted, with often-disastrous consequences for the culture of an organization, because they can damage whatever connective tissue exists between colleagues. Yet the allure of email is powerful, and people fall repeatedly into the same trap, thinking that email is the best way to accomplish a lot of work in a short time.

Warden Associates's insight:

This article provides great food for thought and probes an important group of questions for all leaders: What is your stance on innovation, accountability, and incentivization in the workplace?

 

These are not questions with yes/no answers. Organizations who thrive will have an idea of the what they want to achieve and enforce it through their expression of and unification on these concepts. Do you have an answer to this basic leadership question?

If what it took to earn success up to this point is not the same thing that it will take to earn success in the future, what must leadership change?

 

Time to quit checking brains at the door and instead engage them collaboratively on the job?

All Successful Leaders Need This Quality: Self-Awareness

As a Coach, one of the best gifts we can give a leader is a mirror.  Giving a leader the opportunity to see their impact for themselves and develop their self- awareness has to be one of the most powerful things we can do. 

Joanne OLeary's curator insight, January 2, 2014 2:35 PM

Sometimes self-awareness is as rare as common sense these days, but very important.  Are you self-aware?

The Best Way for New Leaders to Build Trust

The Best Way for New Leaders to Build Trust | Leading for High Performance | Scoop.it

Many leaders see their role as directing and giving information, rather than gathering.  There is pressure to “come up with the answer” quickly or risk looking weak.  Too many new leaders believe they’re expected to know the answer without input or guidance. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Thank you for sharing this article!

 

Building trust through involvement, collaboration, and asking their team ...what do you think we should do?  How do you believe this solution will solve the issue?  What factors did you consider to come to this conclusion?

 

What are your thoughts?

Jeffrey Ross's curator insight, December 20, 2013 10:36 AM

Building TRUST is the true cornerstone to building a successful business.  Internally, we need to be able to trust one another, so that our customers will trust us.

Jerry Busone's curator insight, February 9, 2014 9:20 AM

Trust is HUGE for leading todays workforce. Simply take an interest in your people... reach out them and LISTEN. Put your ego and prejudice away. Author gives 3 great questions to ask :“If you were put into my role tomorrow, what would be the first three things you’d do and why?”  Or: “What are the three biggest barriers to our success, and what are our three biggest opportunities we have?”

Why Leadership Development Fails to Produce Good Leaders

Why Leadership Development Fails to Produce Good Leaders | Leading for High Performance | Scoop.it

Despite the collective wisdom of centuries on this topic, confidence in our leaders is low and continues to decline.

 


Via Bobby Dillard, Kenneth Mikkelsen
Warden Associates's insight:

From article...

"...leadership talent — the ability to build and maintain high-performing teams, and to inspire followers to set aside their selfish agendas to work for the common interest of the group"

 

"Good leaders need to become masters of themselves before they can be masters of anything else."

 

I could not agree more. Leadership Development is not simply about running individuals through training courses to impart knowledge on specific competency areas. First and foremost, leaders seeking to improve their ability to lead must know themselves and their style of leading. Then they can plot a course to furthering their leadership talent.

Despite the collective wisdom of centuries on this topic, confidence in our leaders is low and continues to decline. In a 2012 survey by the National Leadership Index (NLI), released by the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard Kennedy School and Merriman River Group,

77% of respondents said the United States now has a crisis in leadership and confidence levels have fallen to the lowest levels in recent times.
