When a major issue occurs at your company, it's a true test of leadership. Will you kick into action, or will you allow the stress of the situation to get the best of you? The bottom line is this: A company crisis is when your employees need you most. They need to know that you care, that you truly believe that everything will be okay and that they can depend on you.

The Leader as Coach: 3 Times When Coaching Is Not the Answer

The Leader as Coach: 3 Times When Coaching Is Not the Answer | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In a couple of my recent posts I’ve talked about managers using coach-like skills in their conversations with direct reports. Doing this often makes conversations more impactful and effective.

But there are times when using a coaching style is not appropriate—when, in fact, it can be counterproductive and cause the other person to become frustrated.

Leading Effectively When You Inherit a Mess

Leading Effectively When You Inherit a Mess | New Leadership | Scoop.it

An executive I work with recently stepped into the biggest challenge of her career. Recruited from outside the organization, she faced multiple problems: The business was losing money, costs were bloated, customer loyalty was fading, and key talent was defecting. Her predecessor had made a failed attempt at reorganizing before leaving for the competition. Morale was low, while distrust and anxiety were rising.

A 10-year longitudinal study on executive transitions that my organization conducted found that more than 50% of executives who inherit a mess fail within their first 18 months on the job. We also uncovered numerous landmines for leaders in this situation. And, with the best of intentions, my client was about to step on a number of them. When a leader inherits a mess created by others, especially when arriving as an outsider, the situation can feel fragile and knowing where to begin the long journey of change can feel precarious. Based on our research and my experience, there are six things the most effective leaders do to avoid failing in a new role.

This Three-Word Phrase Is Subtly Undermining Your Authority

This Three-Word Phrase Is Subtly Undermining Your Authority | New Leadership | Scoop.it

You don’t need to be told why it matters to be transparent and honest at work–that much is a given. So is the overall usefulness of expressing yourself clearly, confidently, and with as few filler words as possible. But in the effort to do that, many of us fall back on common expressions that might sound totally fine in social situations but can do some quiet damage in the workplace. One of them is “I’m sorry.” Another is “to be honest.”

 

The latter turn of phrase–and versions of it, like “honestly,” “frankly,” “if I can be honest with you,” or “let me be frank”–is easy to resort to when you want to cut through the crap, come clean, or offer your unvarnished opinion. But these expressions also tend to attach themselves to–and subtly encourage–certain messages that are either better left unsaid or ought to be rephrased. Here are times when “to be honest” can make you sound less authoritative around the office.

4 Practices That Will Make You a More Powerful & Trusted Leader

4 Practices That Will Make You a More Powerful & Trusted Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Power. The word itself evokes a reaction. What thoughts or feelings do you have when you think of power? Perhaps you picture an organizational chart where the boxes at the top are imbued with more power than those below. Maybe you imagine an iron fist, representative of a person who rules over others with absolute authority. Or perhaps the word power conjures up feelings of nervousness, anxiety, or fear, based on negative experiences you’ve had in the past. On the flip side, maybe the word power emboldens you with excitement, energy, or drive to exert your influence on people and circumstances in your life.

Power is a dynamic present in all of our relationships and it’s one we need to properly manage to help our relationships develop to their fullest potential. In and of itself, power is amoral; it’s neither good or bad. The way we use power is what determines its value.

But what is power? How do we get it? And once we have it, how do we keep it?

Keep it REAL – 4 Ways to Establish an Authentic Leadership Presence | New Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’re a leader, particularly in a large organization, the chances are your people don’t see you as a real person. They have a mental image of what they perceive you to be like, not who you actually are, says research by Nathan T. Washburn and Benjamin Galvin.

This mental image is formed through random encounters with you such as emails, videos, speeches, meetings, and stories about you shared by others. Washburn and Galvin say employees follow four basic rules when forming a perception about their leaders:

An implementation, or operational, role—the servant aspect of servant leadership.

To Be a Strong Leader, There Are 6 Things You Must Give Your People (Most Rarely Do)

The impact of work cultures on the bottom line is a hot business topic. More execs and HR leaders are connecting the dots on how an ecosystem of commonly held values, beliefs, and positive work behaviors drives engagement, innovation, and high performance.

Yet culture doesn't just happen. It takes visionary, servant leadership at the top creating the environment for intrinsically motivated employees to release discretionary effort.

These are selfless leaders who shine the spotlight on others instead of themselves. They have one thing in mind: How do I empower my tribe to reach their potential? You'll find that they are givers--in a personal, leadership, and organizational sense.

As leaders we can sometimes think we are too busy to consider the organisational health of the company as we can be consumed with bottom line results. This article reminds us all that commonly held beliefs, strong values and positive work behaviours do drive engagement and ultimately stronger results. If you like this article then do read The Advantage by Patrick Lencioni who focuses solely on the benefits of building a cohesive leadership team who cited "The single greatest advantage any company can achieve is organisational health". Happy Reading and Happy Holidays.

The reality is leadership defines culture. People look to the leadership for their role models, for guides on how to behave. This goes for everything accountability, punctuality, sexual discrimination, etc., etc., if the boss practices these then the rest of the team will feel comfortable to follow suit. The leader sets the tone for whats acceptable. This is true for both positive traits as well as the negative traits mentioned above.

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Getting smart people into your company is hard enough. Turning them all into great collaborators and risk-takers is even harder. Even on the most high-performing teams, coworkers don’t just openly share feedback and challenge each others’ ideas all on their own–managers need to create a culture that encourages this. And that usually requires building your team’s collective emotional intelligence. Here are a few straightforward (and entirely low-tech ways) to get started.

Ask Yourself These 5 Questions Before Deciding On A Leadership Style

Ask Yourself These 5 Questions Before Deciding On A Leadership Style | New Leadership | Scoop.it

First-time managers often ask themselves how to develop a leadership style that suits them: “Who should I model myself after? What kind of leader should I be?” It’s great to think critically about your approach to managing others, particularly when you’re new to it, but these questions won’t exactly help you.

 

That’s because they assume that leadership is something you try on and show off, a “style” that’s curated and intentional. But especially in the beginning, your style will be based far less on mirroring others’ habits and behaviors and far more on instinct and intuition. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Executive Coaching: The Best Decision You Can Make as a Leader  

Executive Coaching: The Best Decision You Can Make as a Leader   | New Leadership | Scoop.it

There is a lot of debate and conversation surrounding the question of what makes an effective executive. Executives are deeply knowledgeable about all aspects of their business, they work to create value and deliver results. They are subject matter experts, know their industry thoroughly and make difficult business decisions on a regular basis. On top of this, executives need to form trusting relationships with people both inside and outside of their organization. This is a lot of responsibility for one person to take on, and with so few people to shoulder the burden, it’s understandable why so many CEOs feel lonely, overwhelmed, and isolated.

It can certainly be lonely at C-suite, but nobody should get to such a position that they can’t ask for help and guidance. This is why one source has declared that the smartest business move an executive can ever make is to hire an executive coach. In fact, a number of COOs and CEOs have come forward to discuss their use of executive coaches, explaining the advantages it has offered them.

But are executive coaches really worth the money? What benefits do they offer and how can your day-to-day work and home life improve as a result?

How Becoming A Good Listener Can Make You A Better Leader

How Becoming A Good Listener Can Make You A Better Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Running a business is an inherently emotional experience. Even the most stoic leaders are bound to find themselves becoming invested not only in outcomes, but in people and processes as well.

 

While emotional leadership is often regarded as a liability, lack of personal investment can also bring about negative outcomes.

 

I’ve learned that the best leaders are those who can recognize emotionally-charged situations, rise above the passions of the movement, and maintain a level head. Good leaders are quick to listen and slow to anger.

Like teaching (educate and pedagogy are etymologically about leading) leading is about listening first. Sometimes asking questions furthers the conversation and understanding of others. They solve their problems.
libertopereda's curator insight, July 31, 4:09 PM

What does it mean to listen? Listening points to four levels: what we can see and hear, the emotions and thoughts, the sensations and what's wanting to emerge (or not). How much of our listening is directed to each of these four levels? Do we really listen when we speak? Do we listen inwards, outwards, both, or neither? Listening comes from the feminine side of us, specially deep listening. What is needed for a deeper listening? What is all this noise telling us?

And if you were lucky enough to have someone supporting and partnering with you—someone coaching you through the experience—chances are that support really helped.

In today’s workplace, business leaders are encouraged to coach their direct reports. To do this, leaders must develop a coaching mindset—a mindset that looks for the potential in others.  Here are four ways to get started.
