The Future of Leadership - Reading

The Future of Leadership - Reading | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
Leadership is the technology of human potential. We know that leadership needs new concepts to adapt to a network era. Without the right new leadership concepts, we won’t realise the human potential of the future of work.


Change Agents Worldwide is offering solutions and development opportunities for change leaders looking to make the transition to network era. I am excited to work with an extraordinary team of change agents to bring that about. Leadership can come from any role, so building capabilities matters for all individuals and for all teams.  The opportunities are tailored to people’s personal goals, needs and position in the organisation.


Getting Here


Creating the future of leadership in a network era takes a diverse series of influences. The list below is the set of books, articles and blogs that have most influenced my personal learning. Like all such lists it is partial and personal. There are too many great thinkers and leaders whose work I have not had the time to read or the space to include here. I have included a long list under categories to enable people to dip into sources that they may not have seen before.


If you are looking for some great places to start, here my list:

Communication:

Fierce Conversations - Susan Scott



Community Building



Cultivating Communities of Practice - Wenger, McDermott & Snyder


Rules for Radicals - Saul Alinski


WISP at Sanofi Pasteur - Celine Schillinger


The First Follower - Derek Sivers




Any list like this is partial. These are the works on leadership that I go back to again and again as inspirations. This list clearly could be far more diverse and far longer. 


Whose leadership inspires you? Who has been left out of this list? What materials should people read or engage with to design the future of leadership in the future of work?  


I look forward to seeing your additional ideas and suggestions in the comments.


Notes


Change Agents Worldwide has a free e-book with essays on steps companies can take to be ready for the future of work.


* In an earlier version of this post Stowe Boyd’s Manisfesto was incorrectly referred to as The Manifesto for the New World of Work. The post has now been amended.

Tips for Change Facilitation – Changing Dojo 

Tips for Change Facilitation – Changing Dojo  | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
Changeability is one of the most important characteristics for companies in the 21st century. As Peter Senge pointed out "Organisational change combines inner shifts in people’s values, aspirations, and behaviours with outer shifts in processes, strategies, practices, and systems”.
However, most of the time, the people do not know how to foster this ability inside the corporation. They need help. They need some facilitation to overcome the obstacles during the change journey.
A Change Facilitator is someone who helps the organisation to identify the opportunities to improve and foster collective strategies to maximise the success of the change efforts.
After several years facilitating organisations in small and large change initiatives, I have collected a set of brief lessons to help Change Facilitators in order to maximise the chances of success in a change/transformation initiative.

Good blog and great suggestions from Kenneth.  Figuring this out and socialising the skills is a great 21st Century challenge!

luiy's curator insight, January 17, 2014 9:29 AM

My own clan — the economists — is particularly inclined in this direction. There are a thousand economists working on partial equilibrium problems for every one working on a general equilibrium problem. This is despite the fact that no one would contest that general equilibrium clarity is the most valuable knowledge by far. Why? Because it is really difficult to specify any general equilibrium cause-and-effect relationships.

 

Instead, most of the guns deployed in modern knowledge advancement are aimed at narrow problems for which the cause-and-effect relationship is specified with the famous “all other things being equal” proviso. Each narrow knowledge domain develops analytical tool-sets that deepen the narrow knowledge domain. Each narrow domain develops ever more algorithmic knowledge, and those developing the knowledge are extremely confident that they are right because they are so specialized within their own domain. The liver expert is completely confident that he or she is correct even if it is the interaction with another condition that threatens your health most.

This approach has created another kind of complexity: inter-domain complexity. Every field is segmented into multiple domains, each with deep algorithmic knowledge, specialized tools, and experts in the domain who think they are absolutely right. And they are indeed right, as long as we ignore the reality of detail complexity.

Being able to listen with focus and empathy is key, whereby those in our care feel supported and heard. In a world where everyone is so busy and time often seems to be the commodity that we have the least of, this diagram really serves to remind us that we need to listen constructively, suggest skilfully and try to understand the emotion of those we are engaging with in all that we do. Purposeful listening rather than just hearing is key.

Do You Reflect? 4 Simple Questions To Make Your Reflection A Habit

Do You Reflect? 4 Simple Questions To Make Your Reflection A Habit | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
When do you make time to reflect?
Is it at the end of the day or week? The end of the month, or even the year?
Perhaps after a project or challenging piece of work? Maybe you reflect after a particularly tough conversation?
It’s important to recognise that without these moments to reflect, your growth as a leader would be somewhat constrained.
How can you go about achieving clarity and self-awareness?
Read on for 4 simple questions you should be asking yourself after every day.

Tom Wojick's curator insight, December 15, 2016 11:43 AM

I subscribe that there are three culture conditions that leaders should create and sustain to keep their organization open to change and for continuous improvement: Engagement, Practice and Reflection. This article provides a framework for creating the condition of reflection. The wording and focus may change but the process is worthwhile. One of the key questions in the process is how did you feel and did your feelings affect what you did?
