Leadership is not something you do to people, it’s something you do with people. Letting people know what they can expect from you underscores the idea that leadership is a partnering process.

Strategic Planning & Execution in an Uncertain World

Strategic Planning & Execution in an Uncertain World | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Setting business strategy used to be as simple as defining what the organization wanted to achieve and then laying out the steps to get there. Management used this plan to set priorities, allocate resources, assess operations, align employees, and satisfy stakeholders. But today, executives face a complex and competitive world that can defy all forecasts. According to Pedro Videla, professor of economics at the IESE Business School, the fast-paced, continual challenges interfere with their ability to formulate clear strategies, or know whether those strategies are being executed well, because they are too busy reacting.

Employee Engagement: It’s All about Connections and Good Work | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It’s interesting in how it segregates true “satisfiers” from the factors and conditions that help employees more deeply engage. Both are relevant measures, depending on what you are trying to determine or better understand about your workforce.

A New Perspective On Leadership Training: From The Outside In

A New Perspective On Leadership Training: From The Outside In | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Before you sign up for one more intensive, introspective “know yourself” leadership training course, take a look at the new trend in leadership development.

“My research shows that today’s focus on introspection, reflection and self- knowledge is misguided – if anything it blinds us to the thing that really could help us develop,” says Herminia Ibarra, the Cora Chaired Professor of Leadership & Learning at INSEAD in France in her new book, Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader (Harvard Business Review Press). Instead, Ibarra says executives should use something she has termed “outsight” – getting out of their daily work-only routine and placing themselves in situations that will given them a fresh perspective and new information on their work, their networks, themselves, as well as on future possibilities.

"What Jazz Taught Me About Leadership" | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When you grow up in Montreal, it’s almost a given that you become a fan of Jazz music. For those you might not know this, every summer Montreal hosts the world’s largest Jazz Festival in the world (I kid you not – we even hold the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest Jazz festival). It’s an annual event that’s been held here for over 35 years and one that I’ve been attending annually since I was in high school.

Developing as a Leader? Sometimes Less Is More—3 Questions to Ask Yourself

Developing as a Leader? Sometimes Less Is More—3 Questions to Ask Yourself | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I was recently coaching a client who had been identified by his organization as a top performer. During our first call, we talked about the things he initially wanted to focus on for his professional growth and development.


In short order, the client mentioned five large development goals—and my sense was that he could have easily doubled that list if I had given him an extra minute or two.


This didn’t surprise me—my experience has been that if asked, most leaders can identify a laundry list of development goals for themselves.


What I’ve learned, though, is that for leadership development to be most effective it’s better to focus on only one or two objectives at a time—to gather, versus scatter, our forces when establishing a learning focus.

Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes. 

 

(From the article): Grant Thornton says around 40% of employees would like their organisation to embrace social and McKinsey says that it can deliver productivity benefits of 20-25 %, yet this is not yet well understood by CEOs.


Enterprise Social Networks (ESNs) like Yammer allow a CEO to talk directly to staff across geographies, driving engagement and innovation.

 

Gartner Inc says that while social networks will become primary channels for work-related decisions, 80% of social business efforts may not achieve the intended benefits due to inadequate leadership.

 

This is probably the most important reason CEOs should set aside personal views on social, broaden their understanding of its benefits and risks and find ways to meet customers, suppliers and people where they already are – in social networks.

Leadership 2050 – What Qualities Will We Need?

Leadership 2050 – What Qualities Will We Need? | New Leadership | Scoop.it
The qualities of effective leadership can be paradoxical—requiring effective leaders to be passionate and unbiased, detailed and strategic, hard driving and sustainable, fact-focused and intuitive, self-confident and selfless—often at the same time. Such complexity is rarely found in leaders even under optimal conditions. As we move toward 2050, new contexts and conditions are poised to emerge that will create challenges beyond the abilities of most leaders or any single nation to manage. This powerful contextual shift—a time of great stress and constraint—has the potential to drive a new and more complex stage of human culture and consciousness to meet these challenges.

How do leaders go through the learning process? What are the formative and informative experiences that influence leaders? How do they reflect on events and truly learn from their mistakes and successes? How do they unlearn dysfunctional habits? How do they become more self-aware? Gerard Seijts explored these questions for his recent book, Good Leaders Learn: Lessons From Lifetimes of Leadership. Through 30-plus probing interviews with senior leaders from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors he brings to light lessons on the importance of life-long learning. Below are some of the most important lessons he identified

Why do CEOs continue to boast about how little they sleep?

Why do CEOs continue to boast about how little they sleep? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I was intrigued by an article about a number of high profile CEOs claiming how little they sleep.

There was a rather macho quality to their explanations (even though a number were women) alongside a lot of ‘I just have too much to do to sleep’-type comments.

Leaving aside why they didn’t have a team to help them with the work load, what’s up with this view that reducing sleep is the right choice?

How Social is Your CEO?

How Social is Your CEO? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Let’s face it: social leaders – or as we call them, “Blue Unicorns” because they are so rare – remain hard to find. Only a small percentage have embraced and leveraged a social mindset like Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington and Peter Aceto


Many leaders, however, are starting to realize that having an effective online presence is a huge asset to their organization, mission and their personal brand. They are coming out from behind the desk to show some character, leadership, social awareness, and even vulnerability.


This infographic from Chrissy Gomez and the team at MBACentral takes a close look at The Social CEO, and their use of social media. Take a look, and then ask yourself: “How social is the leadership of my organization… and what can I do to help them become a Blue Unicorn?”
