The Leadership Gap provides the antidote for leading on autopilot. Daskal provides the insight into our behaviors and beliefs that can if not managed properly can derail even the most talented and successful leaders. Confronting and avoiding our leadership gaps is the key to attaining long-term leadership success.

To be a leader does not mean wearing the title of "leader." It's not something you choose to be one minute and then choose not to be the next. A leader is not a leader simply because he or she has been promoted. And a leader is not someone who sits in a position of management.

A moot question for leadership is 'What turns a Manager into a Leader?' People are appointed for Managerial positions, but what marks exceptional Managers apart from the rest is their ability to lead others. It is not just the post but their character traits that matter!

Five Moments When Saying No Is Your Best Strategy

Five Moments When Saying No Is Your Best Strategy | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Most successful leaders have little difficulty saying no to a losing deal, to a project that’s wasting money, or to a request that doesn’t align with their priorities. But these same leaders can find it very uncomfortable to speak up when their concerns are less cut-and-dried or when their organization is hell-bent on pursuing a plan. In certain situations, it can feel politically risky to hesitate or ask too many questions. Even with their direct reports, many leaders find themselves putting off the difficult conversations needed to address issues such as drifting standards, inappropriate behavior, or emerging bad habits.

But, as difficult as it can be, saying no is often the key to effective leadership. Without the ability to push back when needed, you run the risk of “commitment drift”: promises made to customers or employees, or to promote safety, specific values, financial discipline, or social and environmental responsibility are eroded incrementally, without anyone really stopping to think about the consequences. As Joseph Fuller and Michael C. Jensen pointed out in their 2002 paper “Just Say No to Wall Street: Putting a Stop to the Earnings Game,” saying no to such dysfunctional momentum can be your best strategy for helping your company succeed as well as living your values.

If your gut says no, it probably should prompt you to say no - or at least explore your concerns openly!

donhornsby's curator insight, June 8, 2016 10:49 AM
(From the article): Being prepared to recognize and act on these moments of truth makes it less likely that you will blow by critical decision points without giving them the attention they deserve. The fact is, it only gets harder to speak up if you wait. And, as you practice saying no or raising questions constructively, you increase your ability to exert a positive influence on your organization.

(From the article): Why did Lincoln, hurt and humiliated to the bone, sat down on his pride when he needed a Secretary of War? Why did he call Stanton to the White House six years later? Because he had seen how talented he was, and knew he would be the right man for the job. Now that’s collaborative leadership. That is why Lincoln still sets a great example for executive leaders, and indeed all of us, today.

3 Greatest Myths about Owning a #Business

3 Greatest Myths about Owning a #Business | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When I was younger I wanted my own business, but I didn’t know how to begin. Should I buy a franchise, join a multi-level marketing company, or start my own business?

 

I went to seminars, presentations, and sales pitches on selling everything from milk additives to fuel additives, from soap to jewellery.

 

A lot of the presentations were very high-pressured. They were designed to get you to buy, sign, and commit. It was all about selling the dream of a life of leisure; you could live like a king and enjoy life without hard work. You could be different from the average Joe—no longer serving the man but living the dream.

 

Having started and run three successful businesses myself and spoken to hundreds of small business owners I can look back over 35 years and say, “Yep, that was definitely a bunch of crap!”

 

These are the three great myths:

So true! Yes, you do have to get real when you think about starting your own business. All those overnight successes you hear about, well, there are very few of them and with hindsight most people's idea of "overnight" tends to foreshorten over time!

 

Read and get real.

And perhaps the most important piece of advice to female leaders that came from the survey was this -- “You can learn from anyone, male or female. You don’t have to listen to what male leaders tell you if you don’t think that’s the right thing. You don’t have to be a ‘good girl’ and do what you are told. Do what you think is right!”

Authenticity is key. 

(From the article) If you are looking to be an inspiring leader, it is important to be an authentic leader. Authentic leaders are ethical leaders. They've identified their ethical codes, and they never compromise on what they believe to be right and wrong. Authentic leaders are inspiring because they know who they are and they don't let anyone keep them from making a decision that they know is right. They have integrity and a firm moral code, and they manage to stay sensible and stable even during the most difficult times.

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | New Leadership | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Why Your Company Needs A Social Business Strategy

Andrew Grill talks about why you need a Social Business Strategy.

 

So impressed was I with a recent report from Altimeter group on Social Business titled “The evolution of social business – six stages of social business transformation”, that I decided to do a multi-part blog post. The first post can be viewed at lc.tl/asb1. In this second post, I am looking at the section of the report that looks at defining a social business strategy. The Altimeter report looked at 698 companies in medium-large sized companies, as well as deeper interviews with 26 executives and social strategists at 15 companies. The Altimeter definition of a social business strategy is the following: the set of visions, goals, plans, and resources that align social media initiatives with business objectives.

Andrew analyzing the situation very well, and gives us an interesting and "simple" approach, which is important in a business strategy in the social business field. If you have already a good strategy for your business, maybe this post will provide you some useful informations more.

 

Do you have any other points to add?
