5 Strategy Questions Every Leader Should Make Time For

5 Strategy Questions Every Leader Should Make Time For | MettaSolutions Change and Leadership | Scoop.it

Frank Vermeulen of London Business School argues that, 'if you can’t find time to think, it probably means that you haven’t organized your firm, unit, or team very well, and you are busy putting out little fires all the time. It also means that you are at risk of leading your company astray.The best leaders don’t let themselves get too busy to reflect.'


Here he shares 5 questions that all leaders should find time to reflect on:

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, January 5, 2016 1:42 AM

Finding time for reflection is not always easy but it is so important. If you are a leader of an organization, unit or team, ensure that this year you carve out some time regularly to reflect on these kinds of strategic questions.  It can be monthly or 6-monthly but put the time slot in you diary now and protect it before the the time gets eaten up and you become too 'busy' again.

Top 3 Leadership Attributes Women Need in the 21st Century

Top 3 Leadership Attributes Women Need in the 21st Century | MettaSolutions Change and Leadership | Scoop.it
A 2015 study from Pew Research Center found that the majority of the American public agrees that women are as capable and qualified for corporate leadership as men are. Pew reports that "most Americans find women indistinguishable from men on key leadership traits such as intelligence and capacity for innovation, with many saying they're stronger than men in terms of being compassionate and organized leaders."

But as we all know, at the end of the day, that vote of confidence hasn't resulted in gender equality in top leadership positions. There's no need to restate the numbers; if you need a refresher, my recent post on growing momentum globally for gender quotas tells some of the story.

At SHAMBAUGH, our goal is to provide solutions rather than to dwell on why these challenges relating to women's leadership aren't progressing quickly enough. To that end, here is a summary of three top capabilities that women need to thrive as leaders, based on a recent McKinsey study of 250 high-ranking female executives and validated by SHAMBAUGH's own research:

3 little words that define workplace relationships | @GreatLeadership

3 little words that define workplace relationships | @GreatLeadership | MettaSolutions Change and Leadership | Scoop.it
What are the most important three words for any relationship between a manager and employee?
No, it’s not “I love you.” Now that would be inappropriate, although not everyone would agree with that opinion. Love their jobs, yes. Love their managers or employees? Eew!
No, the most important three little words are: “I trust you.”
Trust is the foundation that a positive manager-employee relationship is built on. The absence of trust leads to micromanagement, fear, risk-aversion, backstabbing, destructive rumors, a lack of innovation, mistakes, and a lack of engagement.
What does trust look like? It’s all in the eye of the beholder, but here’s a starter list from both the manager’s and employee’s perspective:

Ed Nikora's curator insight, July 27, 2015 4:24 AM

Trust has also been one of the four things identified in Gallups Strength Based Leadership book as something employees require of good leaders.  For a leader to sit and reflect on how they provide trust to their staff, we must first have our 'why'.  Why do we even value trust in our working relationships...and as with all things we value, like currency, how do we spend our Trust...as in how are we investing it with those we lead, manage or work with?

I think that leadership is important. One evidence is already in this news, where is it shown that leadership is taught so long time ago just because of its importance. In my opinion learning leadership is important as it prepare us for our adulthood, where more responsibility had to be taken with initiative. Leadership is also a gauge on how much have you grown intellectually, as showen from Sun Tzi's advices.

  • Charismatic Leadership
  • Transactional Theory

How My Experience At Disney Taught Me 3 Universal Laws

How My Experience At Disney Taught Me 3 Universal Laws | MettaSolutions Change and Leadership | Scoop.it
In 1979, I was lucky to get hired by Disney in their MAPO organization – the arm of Disney that designs and builds the equipment for theme park operations around the world.   My experience there was educational, inspirational and transformational.

While not knowing it at the time, I now realize that my experiences taught me three important universal laws that are core to every operational excellence endeavor; they are the Law of Oneness, Law of Action, and Law of Cause and Effect.

5 Steps to Create a Compassionate Workplace

5 Steps to Create a Compassionate Workplace | MettaSolutions Change and Leadership | Scoop.it

A 16-month longitudinal study at a long-term health care facility with 185 employees, 108 patients, and 42 of the patients' family members was conducted to test how the employees treated the patients and families versus their colleagues.


The researchers found that there was lower absenteeism and employee burnout, as well as higher levels of employee engagement with their work with greater teamwork and employee satisfaction. In addition, the culture of compassion spread to patients and their families. Then, to see if the same positive results would be found in industries such as real estate, finance, and public utilities, they performed a second study involving 3,201 employees in seven different industries.


Again, a greater culture of compassion in the workplace led to greater work satisfaction, commitment, and accountability.


...What steps can we take to develop or increase a compassionate workplace?


1. Try a morning ritual where you literally set a positive tone for your day....

2. Look for what you have in common with others today. ...

3. Practice intentional, but random, acts of kindness...

4. Start a gratitude journal where each day you write three new things you are grateful for at work....

5. Each night write about your day....

Leadership without emotional energy is useless beyond the academic.  Leadership within the context of emotional energy is priceless and powerful. 

donhornsby's curator insight, February 27, 2015 9:05 AM

(From the article): When it comes to learning true leadership, characteristics like servanthood and followership immediately come to mind.

 

But many other aspects also fall into this category. These are like the ability to:

 

Cultivate wisdomDevelop genuine humilityNurture a heart of gratitudeOr even summon courage when it really counts

And the reason is fairly simple: these are the highly personal aspects of real leadership that only come through a deliberate and life-long commitment to self-discovery.
