Wharton School professor Michael Useem scopes out the leadership challenges facing executives today:

 

Because the world is now more complicated and more uncertain, I think that on top of always having a great vision there will be a premium on thinking strategically and on being able to come back from setbacks, and maybe above all, on being very good at reading the increasingly ambiguous and uncertain universe we operate in.


Companies probably focus too much on the bottom line, too much on meeting quarterly analyst expectations, and this has cost us companies paying attention to what the country needs or what the world needs or certainly what the community requires.

I promised yesterday to clarify some aspects of Cynefin.  This was triggered by Roger's Linked In post and some of the response (reported yesterday) but it is not a specific response.  Rather see it as a summary of multiple responses both articulated or otherwise over the last few years.

An All-Call for a New Style of Leadership

An All-Call for a New Style of Leadership | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

It’s time for a new style of leadership. Today’s employees want to work for an organization that they can feel proud of: an organization that has values and viewpoints compatible with their own; an organization that is oriented toward the long haul, working toward the prevention of ills, not just curing the symptoms; an organization that cares about morals and ethics, doing what is in the best interests of its customers; and an organization that cares about the impact it has on the environment. Employees want this because they recognize that such an organization will also care about them.
