The Power of Meeting Your Employees' Needs

The Power of Meeting Your Employees' Needs | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

What stands in the way of our being more satisfied and productive at work? That’s the fundamental question we sought to answer in a survey we conducted with HBR last fall. More than 19,000 people, at all levels in companies, across a broad range of industries, have so far responded to the questions we posed.

 

What we discovered is that people feel better and perform better and more sustainably when four basic needs are met: renewal (physical); value (emotional), focus (mental) and purpose (spiritual).

Leaders need to consider that performance is best measured by the value they generate, not the hours they put in.

Change Leader, Change Thyself

Change Leader, Change Thyself | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Leo Tolstoy, the Russian novelist, famously wrote, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

 

Tolstoy’s dictum is a useful starting point for any executive engaged in organizational change. After years of collaborating in efforts to advance the practice of leadership and cultural transformation, we’ve become convinced that organizational change is inseparable from individual change. Simply put, change efforts often falter because individuals overlook the need to make fundamental changes in themselves.

 

Building self-understanding and then translating it into an organizational context is easier said than done, and getting started is often the hardest part. We hope this article helps leaders who are ready to try and will intrigue those curious to learn more.

Excellent points Nancy!
Peter (PJ) Fulcher-Meredith's curator insight, December 3, 2013 1:06 AM

As Karen said a different way of capturing and curating your business stories.  Anything that helps leaders to categorise and re-use and re-purpose stories the better. Make it easier and leaders will use stories more and more to engage their people. Nice one.

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it
Not long ago, most discussions of leadership were about leaders – their personality traits, how to identify and groom those with ‘leadership potential,’ and what were the skills that leaders employed.

Graeme Reid's insight:

Trust - and integrity - are essential qualities for any successful leader.

I dont believe it's the new core, it's been there all along, perhaps we are only just taking notice. Do you agree?

7 Things Well-Liked People Always Do

Everyone wants to be well liked; it's in our nature as people. But it's hard to pinpoint what exactly it is that makes us more likeable. Is it a magic charisma that attracts people to us? Or maybe being outgoing and friendly? Or having an agreeable personality that doesn't put people off? Though there are plenty of theories floating around about what makes someone well liked, here are seven things that well-liked people always do--and that you can do today to make yourself a more likeable and magnetic person.

What to Do When Your Managers Don't Trust Each Other

What to Do When Your Managers Don't Trust Each Other | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

For smooth execution, people on your team--from upper management to those who toil on the most mundane tasks--need to have confidence in one another. Without trust, people at best second guess those they deal with. At worst, they won't make necessary efforts because, why bother? Other people will only screw things up.

 

Such is the stuff of office intrigue and backbiting. But it can get worse when the people who aren't inspiring trust are the people on your management team. News flash: That's the situation in many companies, according to a new survey of "200 C-suite executives, senior leaders, and managers" conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit on behalf of management consulting firm BTS. And, sadly, you, too, may distrust many of the managers working for you.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Graeme Reid's insight:

Each of the six styles has a time and place, and the object of leadership development is to give the leader the necessary versatility skills to choose the appropriate style for each situation.

Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, And The Power Of Humility In Leadership

Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, And The Power Of Humility In Leadership | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Humility is often associated with weakness - not with strong leaders. In his new book David J. Bobb explains why that's a mistake.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Graeme Reid's insight:

It is very rare to meet a leader with real humility.  It is often seen as a weakness rather than a strength.

Ken Donaldson's curator insight, September 30, 2013 10:40 AM

"Humility asks us to acknowledge our imperfections. It requires that we admit when we are wrong and then change course."
