There Are 7 Types of Ultra-Likable Leaders: Which One Are You?

There Are 7 Types of Ultra-Likable Leaders: Which One Are You? | Management | Scoop.it

First the bad news: 85 percent of companies report an urgent need to develop their leadership pipeline. But only 40 percent believe their current pool of high-potentials can meet their future business needs.

 

Now the good news: With Millennials taking over as the largest working generation, it would behoove current leaders to identify who amongst them have the key leadership traits that lead to success.

 

The brutal truth of what to look for in your high potential leaders. This will make or break your organization.

7 Valuable Skills That Top Leaders and High Achievers Have Mastered

7 Valuable Skills That Top Leaders and High Achievers Have Mastered | Management | Scoop.it
1. A well-developed personal philosophy

Successful leaders know what their philosophy is; they understand their thinking and their reasoning. A clear philosophy allows you to set your expectations and articulate your definition of success so you can set a clear path to your goals. It prepares you for an extraordinary destiny.

2. Undeniable persistence

Edison failed 2,000 times before he discovered electricity. John Chambers overcame dyslexia to build Cisco. People who are successful never quit, and people who succeed never give up. When failure is never an option, you don't give up. You find another contact, another way, another point of entry, and you keep trying until you accomplish what you have set out to do. Persistence means picking yourself up every day and going after what you want without allowing anything to get in your way.

The 10 Things You Must Do to Make Hiring Top Talent No. 1

The 10 Things You Must Do to Make Hiring Top Talent No. 1 | Management | Scoop.it

Over a 10 year period from 1991 to 2001 my firm made over 400 presentations to groups of CEOs at emerging and entrepreneurial companies. The presentations were largely the same. All focused on how to select people to grow the company.

 

One big idea was to map the types of people the company was hiring to its business strategy. The other point, while not as grand, was more important: If hiring top talent is important to your company's growth make this the primary measure of how you reward and promote your hiring managers. Although 90% of the CEOs believed in the concept, few did anything to make this part of their company's culture.

The Power of Meeting Your Employees' Needs

The Power of Meeting Your Employees' Needs | Management | Scoop.it

What stands in the way of our being more satisfied and productive at work? That’s the fundamental question we sought to answer in a survey we conducted with HBR last fall. More than 19,000 people, at all levels in companies, across a broad range of industries, have so far responded to the questions we posed.

 

What we discovered is that people feel better and perform better and more sustainably when four basic needs are met: renewal (physical); value (emotional), focus (mental) and purpose (spiritual).

How to Be a Better Boss

How to Be a Better Boss | Management | Scoop.it

“Most managers have a remarkably narrow or ill-thought-out understanding of how their employees actually look at the world,” notes Julian Birkinshaw, a professor of strategy and entrepreneurship at London Business School and the author of Becoming a Better Boss: Why Good Management Is So Difficult (Jossey-Bass, 2013).

 

“Imagine what would happen if managers could get inside their employees’ minds and relate to their genuine motivations, needs and fears,” he continues. “My guess is that those managers would start doing a dramatically better job. Not only would they know how to motivate each individual employee, but they would also become less self-centered.”

You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Great Leader

You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Great Leader | Management | Scoop.it

Many people believe leadership is something that's conferred along with a title or attained when you direct a team of people, but true leadership is never about authority or power. It's about helping others grow, and that's something anyone can do.

 

If it's your desire to influence and have an impact on others, you have leadership qualities. And if you can inspire people to do something they thought they couldn't do, demonstrate how the impossible is possible, believe in someone when they didn't believe in themselves, you're already a leader.

 

People don't set out to be great leaders, they set out to make a difference. It's never about the role or the title, but about influencing others, helping and supporting them.

Today’s Best Leaders Are Reflective and Vulnerable

Today’s Best Leaders Are Reflective and Vulnerable | Management | Scoop.it
Lagging performance is among the most glaring indications something is awry in an organization. Then there are the quieter, less splashy but still foreboding signals: a culture of distrust, the uncomfortable undiscussables, staff disengagement, disorganization — all of which indicate a disconnect that could cost a business tremendously if not addressed.
 

When confronted with a problem, or better yet, before it becomes a problem, leadership consultants Bob Anderson and Bill Adams recommend organizational leaders first turn inward to drive lasting change.

What does it take to be a great leader?

 

Once upon a time, birth order and socioeconomic status were considered powerful determinants in who would successfully climb the ladder.

 

Lately, though, the focus has shifted to personal qualities.

Guiding vision, passion, and integrity are well known leadership traits. But there are lesser known leadership traits, as well--in fact, some historically have been perceived as weaknesses.

 

These hidden traits can be developed and nurtured to help further your career and your role as a leader, at work, in your community, or in life in general.

 

See if you just might have some or all of these personal qualities that lend well to leadership:

Business owners should always be striving to be better leaders to their business and its employees, and most owners have within them the capacity to be far better leaders, yet few tap into that capacity.


It may not be a conscious decision, but business owners tend to place many barriers in front of themselves, and these barriers act to limit their capacity to become great leaders.


This excellent article, suggests that business owners utilise only a portion of their capacity to lead others, and it offers six tips that if followed should boost anyone's leadership capacity.

Develop the squeezed middle: Once a business grows and a middle management tier emerges, these are the people who can make or break growth. They are submerged by the instructions from above and the demands from below and unless their skills are developed, the culture is collaborative and the direction clear, they will drown. Identifying the skill and personal development needs of these individuals to help them become future leaders can catapult your capacity to a new level.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Management | 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.
