Change Leader, Change Thyself

Change Leader, Change Thyself | marketing leadership and planning | Scoop.it

Organizational change is inseparable from individual change. Simply put, change efforts often falter because individuals overlook the need to make fundamental changes in themselves. Anyone who pulls the organization in new directions must look inward as well as outward.

Organizations don’t change—people do
Joyce Layman's curator insight, April 4, 2014 12:25 PM

An American Management Association study of Fortune 500 companies found that “…less than 50% of changes in their organizations were successful, and that employee resistance was the main reason for failures.”  This is why it's necessary to focus on the person.

Are you preparing to embark on an executive coaching programme?

If so, then this has been written with you in mind, to get the very best from the coaching relationship.

There is little written to which people can turn that is specifically for them to make sense of, understand and be a collaborative partner in the coaching arrangement.

Leadership challenges growing faster than skills

Leadership challenges growing faster than skills | marketing leadership and planning | Scoop.it

Since the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Daiichi is still dealing with radioactive waste left behind. Less well known is the crisis at Fukushima Daini, a nearby sister plant, which also suffered severe damage, but averted meltdown. 


Faced with a crisis in a volatile environment, where none of the usual rules applied, the site superintendent, Naohiro Masuda, and the rest of Daini’s 400 employees charted their way through the chaos as models of adaptive leadership: standing in the truth and uncertainty of the situation, creating a sense of safety so as not to rush into reaction, together continuously gathering/sharing information to make sense of the situation, making and revising plans openly and adapting as the information changed.

While an extreme example of leadership in a crisis situation, the Fukushima story illustrates that leadership matters and can be a great advantage for an organisation.

This article demonstrates how leaders are currently face escalating challenges in a world characterised by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) using the example of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

 

The article discusses the most effective ways to develop leaders in order to solve problems in this type of environment. Particularly interesting, is the emphasis on action learning as a powerful tool to help leaders look at issues differently and build competencies to improve performance and solve real-world issues.

The Mind of the Constant Learner

There are three distinct mindsets that allow new employees and leaders to become constant learners: the Gamer Mindset, the Beginner Mindset, and the Growth Mindset. Knowing all three can provide a framework that throws your personal switch to “LEARN” when you need to rapidly adapt and get to work.

Reorganization can boost company performance, but the results are often disappointing. A smart new approach dramatically increases the likelihood of success. Recognizing that company performance is determined above all by employees’ behaviors, it uses a variety of organizational levers to maximize the cooperation, engagement, and effectiveness of staff throughout the organization.

Great example of taking the outsider's view. "... comes from Intel, the microprocessor company. In 1985, its core business was still based around its founding business, manufacturing memory chips, but it was struggling to compete with Japanese manufacturers. Andy Grove, who was then director of engineering ( and later became Intel’s chief executive and chairman ) notes “I looked out of the window at the Ferris wheel of the Great America amusement park revolving in the distance, then I turned back to Gordon [then the company’s chief executive] and I asked ‘If we got kicked out and the company brought in a new CEO, what do you think he would do?’ Gordon answered without hesitation: 'He would get us out of memories [memory chips].' I stared at him, numb, then said: ‘Why shouldn’t you and I walk out the door, come back and do it ourselves?’.”"

Steve Bax's insight:
Excellent blog scooped by Kenneth Mikkelsen. 
I like the quote: "Leadership has become a team sport". 
The final paragraph is also worth highlighting here:
"Leadership success today has to do with the way people think, the way they feel, the way they behave in a responsible manner. This is more than charisma and it is not something that can be learned in three easy steps or over a single programme. Strong leadership requires continuous development. Clever people don’t necessarily become wise. But they can learn how to find ways to cope with stressful experiences by getting to know themselves. It’s always good to keep in mind that leaders are like wine. Some turn out great; others may turn into vinegar!"

Building Better Support Systems for Intrapreneurs

Building Better Support Systems for Intrapreneurs | marketing leadership and planning | Scoop.it

Most companies claim to support entrepreneurial behavior — but their employees are not so sure. The research speaks volumes: Only 20% of employees in an Accenture study said their managers encourage entrepreneurial ideas. Another survey showed that 70% of successful entrepreneurs developed their big idea while working at an established organization and then left to commercialize it on their own.

Becky Willmoth's curator insight, April 6, 6:35 AM

In today’s VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) economy intrapreneurship is gaining popularity as a way of sustaining competitive advantage. This HRB article highlights that it is not only individuals within an organisation who must be encouraged to find their inner entrepreneur, but the culture of organisations must also evolve so allow innovations to then flourish. The author suggests four key components can help create an organisational culture that is flexible enough to enable creativity and build momentum yet firm enough to keep intrapreneurs on track:

 

  1. Make it easy to conduct the first experiment - encourage the creation of a prototype to test with just one customer.
  2. Add structure to unstructured time – provide a structure and time to develop relevant side projects.
  3. Support, don’t control – empower individuals to make some of the big decisions on their own by encouraging them to ‘fall in love with the problem not the solution, take risks and regroup based on learning.
  4. Value ‘Return on Intelligence’- Look at learning as part of the return to create a corporate culture that doesn’t fear failure.

The Management Thinker We Should Never Have Forgotten

The Management Thinker We Should Never Have Forgotten | marketing leadership and planning | Scoop.it
Deming offered up 14 principles that stood in stark contrast to the sorts of practices he thought were eroding the performance of top corporations in the United States in the 1970s and 1980s. The list might seem almost quaint today, but it’s worth recounting:

Create and communicate to all employees a statement of the aims and purposes of the company
Adapt to the new philosophy of the day; industries and economics are always changing
Build quality into a product throughout production
End the practice of awarding business on the basis of price tag alone; instead, try a long-term relationship based on established loyalty and trust
Work to constantly improve quality and productivity
Institute on-the-job training
Teach and institute leadership to improve all job functions
Drive out fear; create trust
Strive to reduce intradepartmental conflicts
Eliminate exhortations for the work force; instead, focus on the system and morale
Eliminate work standard quotas for production. Substitute leadership methods for improvement
Eliminate MBO. Avoid numerical goals. Alternatively, learn the capabilities of processes and how to improve them
Remove barriers that rob people of pride of workmanship
Educate with self-improvement programs
Include everyone in the company to accomplish the transformation

W E Deming died in 1991 - but his legacy has never been more relevant. Re-read his principles!

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, July 5, 6:30 AM

These principles were created during the 1970's and 1980's and when you read this list now the messages, while still relevant, almost seem to state the obvious.  At the time, some of these ideas will have been radical and may not have gained traction, which is maybe why he was 'forgotten'.

 

What they be saying the same thing in 50 years' time about the principles of purpose, inclusive business, shared value, systems -leadership, global mindset, digital disruption and leading in the network age that are trying to get traction right now?

Steve Bax's insight:
Mr Rowe said that he had set his team a number of "exam questions" about the group's clothing division as part of a strategic review that could lead to some of its clothing brands, such as Per Una, Classic, Indigo, Limited Edition and Autograph, being scrapped. Analysts have often criticised M&S's plethora of brands as confusing for shoppers and a sign that the retailer does not have a clear idea of its core customer.
