The Secret Sauce Of Leadership Is Made Of These Two Ingredients

The Secret Sauce Of Leadership Is Made Of These Two Ingredients | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The ingredients of a great sauce aren’t just a hodgepodge of completely unrelated foods that just happen to come together to create palette-stimulating experiences. Instead, the ingredients are carefully chosen complementary spices and additives that when combined, create a tasty experience for all taste buds.

 

When it comes to leadership, there seems to be a secret sauce that follows the same recipe – main ingredients that when combined, create an effective, high performing manager who can appeal to most employees. But what are these main ingredients? What is the secret sauce to becoming a great leader?

5 Secret Communication Codes for Great Leaders

5 Secret Communication Codes for Great Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

From my research, I believe we want leaders whom we can readily connect with, trust their words, and believe in their commitment to a build a better future for more than the ‘chosen” and/or special interests.


I do believe there is a secret code—because if it wasn’t secret, we’d see more leaders using these straight-forward communication concepts.

Using technology to improve employee engagement

Using technology to improve employee engagement | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Maintaining employee engagement is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses. Irrespective of salaries and benefits, it’s very important for businesses to create a working environment where their employees are motivated and engaged; where they feel they are working towards a common goal, have a say in the business strategy and objectives, and are supported to develop themselves.

 

It’s important for businesses to have engaged staff. Without them businesses will struggle; it will be harder to retain staff, productivity will fall and absence will increase. It could also result in losing vital organisational knowledge that comes with time in the role, or even losing competitive information if an employee joins a rival.

Missing Deadlines: What You Can Do to Get The Team Back on Track | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The reason why so many organizations have so much trouble doing what they intend to do, on time, is because when they fail to meet a deadline, nothing happens. The dates come and go and noone talks about it

Babies are very sensitive to chemicals as their immune systems are just preliminary to develop. The delicate skin of babies cannot produce sufficient oil to continue moisturized. Normal skin care products might dry their fine skin and composite the problem. The best decision is to apply natural baby care products for babies.

He fires them.

 

The punchline? He fires them from their “day jobs.” He then appoints them as the CEOs of their own change initiatives, something like little start-up companies within the company.

How Those Who Challenge You Help to Make You More Successful

How Those Who Challenge You Help to Make You More Successful | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Are you feeling uninspired and stuck at work? Perhaps it's the people around you. It's nice to have colleagues who support us and are of like mind – they boost our confidence and allow us to relax. We develop a network of people with whom we like to work because we know their styles and they know ours.


It’s comfortable and expedient and it works.

 Healthy conflict, differing perspectives

Unfortunately, that level of comfort can stall the very learning and innovation that can expand our careers and our companies, says Kevin Daum, author of ROAR! Get Heard in the Sales and Marketing Jungle.

Seven Strategies for Keeping a Promise

Seven Strategies for Keeping a Promise | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Like most other businesspeople, you probably care about keeping your word and will go the extra mile to fulfill a commitment. Yet we no longer live in a world of lone rangers. Yes, you need to be accountable for your own commitments. But if your team does not coordinate to provide a unified experience to customers, employees, or other stakeholders, your efforts create confusion and complexity, and your company promises fall prey to “commitment drift.”


To keep its promises—and reap the rewards of high trust, loyal customers, engaged employees, and agile execution—your company needs leaders who can ensure that individual commitment adds up to company promises kept. The following seven strategies will help.

The science behind a happy and productive workforce

The science behind a happy and productive workforce | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Humans have been fascinated by their own behaviour for thousands of years. Understanding each other has been critical for survival – both as Neanderthals and in today’s corporate world. A successful employee will not only possess the right skills, but their working style often matches their role requirements. However, an individual’s working behaviour type isn’t always apparent on the CV, so how can you gain an additional understanding of whether they’re the right fit for your company

donhornsby's curator insight, August 19, 1:25 PM

(From the article): Knowing what motivates your staff helps to maintain a productive and happy workforce, making them more likely to stay on board. High dominance individuals tend to be motivated by power and authority and drive results, whilst those with high influence are more likely to be motivated by public praise and recognition. Those with high influence are usually more suited to careers that involve working with others in a talkative environment.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, Today, 6:00 AM

When people treat others with kindness and respect, the happiness of each individual increases and so too, does their productivity.

7 Tips for Bringing Virtual Teams Together

7 Tips for Bringing Virtual Teams Together | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Virtual companies can often run like well-oiled machines, with high productivity and work-life balance for employees, well, in balance. I founded the  1 Million for Work Flexibility movement because I know just how valuable work flexibility is for both employees and for companies.

That’s why it’s worth the effort to establish practices for your distributed teams that foster a team culture and help keep everyone on the same page.

Finding value as a new leader

Finding value as a new leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it

During a recent conversation with a high-performing team member embarking on a new leadership role, I posed the following question: “What kind of leader do you want to be?”


The response that followed was one I often hear: “I’m an expert, so I can lead by example and show the team what a good job looks like by how I tackle the work.”


My follow-up question… “What other ways can you add value to the team?” …was met by a long pause.

Over the past two days, I had the opportunity to join over ~200,000 leaders in 350+ locations around the world who came together for one of the largest events of the year – the Global Leadership Summit. The speakers were gathered at the Willow Creek campus in Chicago, but only about 5% of the total viewing audience was present onsite – the majority of us were participating from countries all around the world.  The Summit is an annual event where you’ll find business leaders, church leaders, political leaders and social leaders from across all spans of life.
