Don't Be a "Water Bucket" Leader

Don't Be a "Water Bucket" Leader | Mentoring - Helping others find their true north | Scoop.it

A “water bucket” leader is someone whose leadership approach can be likened to sticking a hand into a bucket of water and creating a stir by splashing it around. Eventually, the leader pulls their hand out, and when they do, the water quickly returns to it’s original state. It’s as if they never existed. Even though there was a lot of activity, in the end, the bucket of water looks no different than it did before.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 28, 2014 11:30 AM

(From the article): I like these factors because they emphasize behaviors, not traits. We can all incorporate idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, and individualized consideration into our commands if we take deliberate steps to do so.  We can all be like my former Sergeant Major or my first Commander if we ask ourselves the following:


What can I do to provide a vision, a sense of mission, and instill pride in my organization?


What can I do to inspire and motivate my organization?


What can I do to foster a command climate that stimulates intellectual growth in my organization?


What can I do to help my subordinates develop to their full potential?


We do not have to walk away from our commands feeling like we just pulled our hands out of a bucket of water. We can make a difference and leave a legacy that will endure long after we are removed from the equation.  Approaching leadership with the goal of being transformational, not only makes the experience more rewarding, it also ensures that the woodpile is a little bit higher on the back end.

Schumpeter: Decluttering the company

Schumpeter: Decluttering the company | Mentoring - Helping others find their true north | Scoop.it

PETER DRUCKER once observed that, “Much of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to work.” Nine years after the management guru’s death, his remark is truer than ever: employees often have to negotiate a mass of clutter—from bulging inboxes to endless meetings and long lists of objectives to box-tick—before they can focus on their real work. For the past 50 years manufacturers have battled successfully to streamline their factory floors and make them “lean”.


Today, businesses of all types need to do the same in their offices.

Tania Tytherleigh's curator insight, August 3, 2014 6:57 AM

Organisations are filled with 'clutter'. From tiers of management, to increasingly complex corporate objectives, meetings and emails. Clutter takes a toll on morale and productivity. Organisations must set time aside to 'spring clean' the clutter - when will you do yours?

Michael Binzer's curator insight, August 4, 2014 3:36 AM

So true. Too much cluttering - how can we remove it? Read XL R8 by John Kotter. One option?

Graeme Reid's curator insight, August 5, 2014 1:57 AM

There is a lot of decluttering to do in most organisations.
