Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 23, 10:36 AM
Humble leadership fits with mindful and servant leadership. Humble leading is knowing when to step aside.
Michael Sankey's curator insight, May 23, 6:59 PM
You can't argue with a lifetime of experience - keeping it humble is such much what it's all about. Mindfulness + culture (the cumulative experience of your learning) = situational awareness

12 of the Best Email Marketing Examples You've Ever Seen (And Why They're Great)

12 of the Best Email Marketing Examples You've Ever Seen (And Why They're Great) | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

At one point or another, we all need inspiration to do our jobs better. It doesn't matter whether you're a marketing veteran who has navigated through years of changing technology or a newbie fresh out of college -- we all need examples of outstanding content. It helps us get through creative ruts, make the case to our boss for experimentation, and improve our own marketing.

Most of the time, inspiration is easy to find because most marketing content is publicly available. You can scour the internet or go on your favorite social network to see what your connections are talking about.

But there's one marketing channel that is really, really hard to find good examples of unless you're already in the know: email. There's nothing casual about it -- you usually need to be subscribed to an email list to find great examples of emails. And even if you're subscribed to good emails, they are often bombarding you day after day, so it's hard to notice the gems.

Because it's so difficult to find good email marketing examples, we decided to do the scouring and compiling for you. Read on to discover some great emails and get the lowdown on what makes them great -- or just keep on scrolling to get a general feel for each. However you like to be inspired is fine by us!...

AS WORK TRANSFORMS, LEADERSHIP STILL MATTERS

AS WORK TRANSFORMS, LEADERSHIP STILL MATTERS | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it
It has certainly been interesting as of late, with leaders and the practice of leadership receiving more scrutiny than any other time in recent history. There seems to be no shortage of data pointing to the current “leadership crisis,” from surveys on confidence, trust, hope, and optimism, and the frequently discussed issue of employee engagement. With little to no improvement, the leadership conversation now includes theories and practices such as distributed leadership, holocracy management, and leaderless environments. And while the jury is still out on many of the new models, I strongly believe that as work transforms, leadership still matters.

Collapse des systèmes complexes

Collapse des systèmes complexes | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

Pourquoi parler d’effondrement et de collapse de notre civilisation ? Parce que le faisceau d’informations factuelles est très convergent, parce que cela a à voir avec les systèmes complexes, et parce que la résilience, individuelle et collective, commence par l’acceptation de la réalité telle qu’elle est.

Create Mentorships, Not Minions

Create Mentorships, Not Minions | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it
Today, the traditional paradigm in which a charismatic executive leads an adoring, less-senior employee where power is often misaligned won’t do, explained executive coaching expert Wendy Mantel of Mantel Coaching Inc. Millennials want close, meaningful relationships with mentors. They also want to feel empowered to be authentic, to create and embody their own career brands.

“Engagement, learning, growth, visibility, relevance and opportunity are watchwords for this generation,” Mantel said in an email. These needs are also important guiding words for learning organizations developing new, or rethinking, established, mentoring approaches.
