Joe Boutte's curator insight, September 24, 2013 9:48 PM

...and it takes time.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 29, 2013 9:31 AM

(From the article): Look, as a leader, you set the tone for how your employees experience large-scale change. You could be the one that enables fearless (but informed) innovation and experimentation – or you can be the one holding up the instruction book saying, “That’s not how we do it.” The choice is yours.

The Hard Data on Being a Nice Boss

The Hard Data on Being a Nice Boss | Management - Leadership | Scoop.it
Warmth beats toughness.


There’s an age-old question out there: Is it better to be a “nice” leader to get your staff to like you? Or to be tough as nails to inspire respect and hard work? Despite the recent enthusiasm for wellness initiatives like mindfulness and meditation at the office, and despite the movement toward more horizontal organizational charts, most people still assume the latter is best.

Millennials Want to Lead. Are They Ready?

Millennials Want to Lead. Are They Ready? | Management - Leadership | Scoop.it
In a global study on millenials by the INSEAD Emerging Markets Institute (EMI), the HEAD Foundation and Universum, we surveyed over 16,000 millennials in 43 countries to better understand the many workplace stereotypes. While there were differences across regions, 41 percent of all respondents confirmed that it was very important to them to become a leader or a manager, and younger millennials noted an interest in coaching and mentoring as part of a leadership role.

When Not to Celebrate Failure - HBR

When Not to Celebrate Failure - HBR | Management - Leadership | Scoop.it

Most of us would accept that failure is just an inevitable part of success. For instance, when you learn how to ski, you have to fall a number of times before you’re able to make it down the mountain skillfully. There are times, however, when failure is not a good thing, such as when you need to meet a customer deadline or achieve a competitive level of quality. Unfortunately, many managers don’t distinguish between when failure can be a valuable catalyst for learning and when it can be truly harmful, leaving employees unsure about when to take risks and experiment, and when to play it safe.
