Are Today’s Business Heroes Challenging Our Ideas About Leadership?

Are Today’s Business Heroes Challenging Our Ideas About Leadership? | Management | Scoop.it

Are today's most talked about business leaders--Jobs, Bezos, Gates--a group to be admired and followed? They seem to lack the humility and lead-from-behind mentality so espoused by serious management thinkers such as Jim Collins and Bill George. Who do you want leading your company?

Henrik H Christiansen's curator insight, July 10, 2014 1:09 AM

No "one size fits all" leadership style can be justified today, not even the ones advocated by Jobs, Bezos or Gates. Good leaders knows how to adapt to the current industry and organizational environment and get the best out of their organization, but great leaders create new ways to lead, ways that trail-blaze their industry creating a competitive advantage.

Wow, here is a provocative statement. 

 

Our mercantile minds have become so optimized to derive maximum margins that we tend to forget that it all starts with us, ahem, humans.

But why trust me on this. Just google Steve Jobs and/ or Richard Branson, or a myriad of other thinkers about what they have to say.

 

In the beginning there are neurons firing in each or our brains deriving a new idea or insight. Everything else comes later. So, value your humans. And, btw, they are not "resources" they are creative agents of change - if allowed to be.

3 Emerging Trends in Talent Analytics « Big Data Made Simple | Management | Scoop.it
Human resource managers are currently embracing talent analytics like never before. Companies are evaluating and analysing raw data to derive valuable insights which are helping them to hire the right talent, retain them as well as help them learn and grow internally.

Talent analytics takes into account all the data, rather than limited samples, so a full-fledged picture emerges. It looks for patterns in the data and discovers critical connections that might otherwise go unnoticed. Such data can be related to employees' pre-employment assessments to background checks to social media profiles.

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change | Management | Scoop.it

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.

Interesting iceberg representation of organisation culture

Expressworks International's curator insight, March 16, 5:26 PM

At an industry conference this week attendees agreed that one of the issues that concerns them most is culture. This is not a surprising outcome since the industry has seen the entrance of many other competitors and a disruption to business as usual. 

 

Using the iceberg model we can illustrate why complex change like cultural transformation is so difficult. There is widespread knowledge that this kind of endeavor takes time and a lot of resources.  Why?  Because the heavier lifting needs to be done “below water” to ensure that there is complete understanding of impacts/challenges that the new normal poses to shared assumptions, perceptions, values, beliefs, traditions and feelings. Then plans must be created and implemented to support the learning and adjustment required for the new norms, traditions and procedures that come with transformation. This is not a quick program because under water is where we deal with the emotional and sometimes “messy” side of an organization. A good change program anticipates and prepares for the journey of transformation using the whole iceberg.  Leveraging a good change partner is a common strategy that allows the organization to focus on the “above water” activities while the partner helps with the “under water” challenges.

 

If you’re thinking about culture change, know what you’re getting into and that there are no short cuts. However, if you’re dealing with disruption in your industry, and a strategy of improvements is no longer good enough, you may well want to ask yourself, “Can I afford not to undertake culture change to meet my business goals?”

A good business book jolts our mind, teaching us something we didn’t know or weren’t sure would work. Ideally, it flows smoothly, the concepts easy to grasp, illuminated and solidified by enticing examples. By that score, two books stand out from the pack I have been through this year: Fewer, Bigger, Bolder and How Google Works. Each challenges us to change. Each is eminently practical. Each presents notions that have worked effectively. And each is a charming read. In a year of many meritorious books, those were at the top of my 2014 list of best management books:

6 Leadership Development Trends for 2015

6 Leadership Development Trends for 2015 | Management | Scoop.it
Before we go on to unveil the future trends, let’s have a look at what was happening on the leadership training scene this year. Among the most innovative leadership strategies being taught all over the world was the so-called “endogenous resourcing”, standing for the myriad techniques for unlocking employees’ hidden potential.

Apart from this trend, we saw the rise of management policies that foster sustainability and a slow transition from the autocratic, control-and-command management style to its more democratic variety – both demonstrating how the human side of business has become a growing factor in the success of leadership as employed by many global brands.

Having examined the present, let’s now direct our gaze to the future – here are 6 innovative leadership development practices that we will see spreading in the upcoming year.

Imagine it’s your first day on the job as chief operating officer of a global manufacturing company in a foreign country. You don’t speak the language, you don’t know where the company’s plants are located, and you don’t even know how to make a phone call. That’s what it was like for Carlos Ghosn when he took over at Japan’s then-floundering Nissan Motor Corp. in 1999. The cultural challenges would have been difficult enough, but Nissan was then some $20 billion in debt after 27 years of declining market share.
