Most People Don’t Want to Be Managers

Most People Don’t Want to Be Managers | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Most American workers aren’t interested in becoming managers. At least, that’s what a new CareerBuilder survey seems to suggest.

Of the thousands surveyed, only about one-third of workers (34%) said they aspire to leadership positions – and just 7% strive for C-level management (the rest said they aspire to middle-management or department-head roles). Broken down further, the results show that more men (40%) hope to have a leadership role than women (29%), and that African Americans (39%) and LGBT workers (44%) are more likely to want to climb the corporate ladder than the national average.

Seven top tips for leading through uncertainty

Many leaders are currently facing the challenge of leading in conditions of uncertainty and unpredictability. Yet much leadership is predicated on the assumption of a relatively stable / foreseeable future - for which plans can be made.

Here is colleague Jo Tyler giving her TED talk and I love it! Very little is available that addresses when NOT to tell biz stories -- especially leaders. Tyler gives some terrific guidelines on this topic.


But that's not all that's here in this video! There are other gems about:

  1. Listening for the story
  2. Offering your biz stories as food for thought instead of them being all about you
  3. Story is not a tool (great explanation!)
  4. Story success is depending on your authentic relationship to the story
  5. She gives a fabulous example of an executive who really screwed up storytelling and the consequences it had on the organization


All of these points are critically important for content creators and business story folks to understand and incorporate.


Enjoy the video!

Culture Of Courage: Creating A Culture That Breeds Bravery

Culture Of Courage: Creating A Culture That Breeds Bravery | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

 

People are innately wired to avoid risk. During times of times of change and uncertainty, our risk aversion is amplified. Yet the number one way to gaining competitive edge is by creating a culture where people feel safe and emboldened to innovate and challenge the status quo thinking. The first key to creating a 'culture of courage' is leading from possibility, not probability.

 

Winston Churchill once said that courage is the first of all virtues because it is the only one that guarantees all others. Courage is also what it takes to set a bold course for yourself and your organization, engage in a courageous conversation, forge new ground, and to be decisive in uncertainty.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.
