10 questions: how well do you know your workforce?

10 questions: how well do you know your workforce? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Many young and fast growing companies are expanding and recruiting fast. While these are exciting trends, new challenges are quickly emerging regarding their people. When everyone was co-located in the same office, and everyone knew everybody, knowing your workforce was easy.

Now these companies are bigger - and people are dispersed across different offices and even countries - things are starting to get complicated. When HR’s asked questions regarding the workforce, answers are taking longer to find, and often there’s no consistent view because the information’s kept in various locations. Hence, it may be much harder to quickly answer basic questions.

Are you a collaborative leader? Here are traits that make an effective collaborative leader. How many do you have in your leadership efforts?

 

(From the article): Within any collaborate workplace, leaders will find themselves fulfilling all seven of these roles at different times, and sometimes fulfilling a combination of the seven styles at the same time, while working with work groups and teams.

The Fine Line For Leaders Between Motivation and Manipulation

The Fine Line For Leaders Between Motivation and Manipulation | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Almost any team has one or two absolute go-getters.


Whether it’s out of passion, commitment or habit, they’re going to show up half an hour early, probably after a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast, bringing their best ideas and plenty of energy to carry them out.


Other employees need a little push, at least from time to time, and the best leaders are prepared to provide it.


But knowing how and when to motivate doesn’t come naturally to most leaders. It may even be uncomfortable, especially for those who aren’t clear on the boundary between motivation and manipulation.

How to integrate outsiders into your team

How to integrate outsiders into your team | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I've just written a book about outsiders. Called The Outside Edge, its focus is on helping outsiders understand themselves, as well as how they can succeed in a world made by insiders. 

But what about those insiders (i.e. everybody else), having to work with outsiders: perhaps having to integrate them into a team and encourage them to perform, stay on-course and achieve? Indeed, what about preventing outsiders from wrecking the painstaking team-building that HR professionals and departmental heads have invested in?

There’s a Difference Between Cooperation and Collaboration | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Everyone seems to agree that collaboration across functions is critical for major projects and initiatives. The reality, however, is that meshing the skills and resources of different departments, each focused on its own distinct targets, to achieve a larger organizational goal is much easier said than done.

Eight Key Points of Blue Ocean Strategy

Eight Key Points of Blue Ocean Strategy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

What is distinctive about blue ocean strategy as a theory? How is blue ocean strategy different from a classic differentiation strategy?   Is it another form of low cost strategy?   What’s the research process behind it?  In the decade since Blue Ocean Strategy was first published, we’ve fielded thousands of such questions. Some executives want to understand how it addresses the issue of execution. Some ask what the strategy is based on. Others question whether the strategy will be effective in their industry. We heard certain questions again and again and, in response, have identified eight key points. Here we outline the essence of blue ocean strategy.

Why is Values Based Leadership so Powerful?

Why is Values Based Leadership so Powerful? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The idea that business should be value driven is an increasingly influential one, and rightly so. The days when we could be content to make profit our only value, and when we could delude ourselves that that in itself was not a value judgment, are far behind us, and values are now being used to anchor leadership in all sorts of businesses


Making the best use of this, like any insight, involves understanding why it works. Fortunately management is a field that draws on many disciplines, and in this case we can learn much from French philosopher Albert Camus.

A great read. Please take the time to read this today...



(From the article): When it comes to leadership, humility is often perceived as weakness. That couldn’t be further from the truth. There are many ways to express humility — you might welcome feedback, admit mistakes, or simply treat others as equals. Your employees will view those as signs of strength, not weakness.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 22, 9:19 PM

I worked for a principal who presented about IDEO as being what we needed for creativity amongst teachers. He rarely acted with humility, if ever. That would be a good starting point for each of us.

10 Key Strategies to Value Employees That Increase Profitability 

10 Key Strategies to Value Employees That Increase Profitability  | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A 2014 study from `Boston Consulting Group surveyed over 200,000 people around the world researching what employees care about at work. BCG found that the #1 factor for employee happiness on the job is being appreciated for their work. Another study by Glassdoor found that more than 80 percent of employees say they’re motivated to work harder when their boss shows appreciation for their work. When workers receive gratitude for their work, turnover rates decline dramatically. More than half of those surveyed said they would stay longer at their company if they felt more appreciation from their boss. Peter Burke, the Co-Founder and President of Best Companies Group, conducts the Best Places to Work surveys in 23 states and 4 countries. He stated that, “study after study shows a connection between contented employees and a thriving bottom line.
