7 Tips That Can Increase Influence as a Leader  

7 Tips That Can Increase Influence as a Leader   | New Leadership | Scoop.it

As a leader, from time to time, we may find ourselves within certain situations where we want to influence or inspire greatness within others within our own team towards a targeted improvement. However, for whatever reason, through either difficulty of our own, the difficulty of the other person, or just simply difficulty of the situation itself, we may have problems carrying this motion out within ourselves. That’s okay, though. We, as leaders, can always problem solve through any difficulty. There are reasons listed below that can help any person or leader promote their team’s productivity by using different methods of inspiration based on the targeted person’s temperament and character. Each leader, themselves, will have to analyze which points would be best used within his or her own life situations.

The Characteristics of A True Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it

What makes a great leader? When we look at people the whole world admires like Steve Jobs or Richard Branson or even throughout history like Winston Churchill or Henry Ford we can see that they are very different people with different personalities; however, they do share some significant qualities that define them as game changers in their respective fields. And this is true for all leaders whether it is a local corner store shop or a global business.

Three Crucial Advantages of Multicultural Management Teams

Three Crucial Advantages of Multicultural Management Teams | New Leadership | Scoop.it


International experience and insight matter far more than what it says on your passport.

While many large companies are multinational, most of the top management teams (TMTs) in these companies are not. They tend to be dominated by executives with a connection to the home country of the company. Attention is paid to gender diversity, but cultural diversity is often ignored.

One must first agree that there are some benefits to having mono-cultural TMTs (all coming from the same nationality and speaking the same language). Since mono-cultural teams share assumptions, world views and language, communication between them is efficient. This speeds up decision making and reduces conflict among team members. Anyone who has participated in culturally diverse teams has encountered problems on these fronts.

Benefits of cross-cultural teams surpass drawbacks only when the organisation has multinational operations. In this context, cross-cultural teams have three crucial advantages:

What Generations X, Y and Z Want From Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Open communication and feedback are most often cited as qualities preferred in leaders by members of Generation X, the post-baby boomer generation, and Generation Y, “the millennials”. Generation Z, however, the generation born from 1994 onwards, has other ideas. This generation wants their leaders to be positive, according to the third part of “Generations”, a three-part study conducted by the INSEAD Emerging Markets Institute, Universum, the MIT Leadership Center and The HEAD Foundation.

How Can You Spot a Really Good Leader? They Do Any of These 7 Things Daily

How Can You Spot a Really Good Leader? They Do Any of These 7 Things Daily | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Can you imagine working for someone in a high-level leadership role, perhaps a CEO, and suddenly it dawns on you: This person isn't leadership caliber.

Your next thought may be, How in the world did he (or she) make it this far up the ladder?

It's a fair question. People are promoted into leadership roles every day who have no business belonging there.

Sometimes it's political; other times it's the easier choice--promote from within and avoid the high cost of recruitment--but a bad choice, nonetheless.

The biggest challenge leaders face is performing to the set standards of the best in the business. This means raising the bar really high--as the ten hugely successful CEOs I wrote about recently have done.

In the end, you'll find the leadership journey is predicated on two things that drive success: Results and relationships. You can't have results at the expense of people. And serving your tribe well without getting results is merely putting lipstick on a pig.

Lisa Gorman's curator insight, April 25, 12:23 AM

www.inc.com provide us with some useful ideas here about what 'really good' leaders to at work.  I've been thinking about the strategies offered; 1. giving feedback 2. regular team planning sessions 3. conducting stay interviews 4. recognition & appreciation 5. freedom to make decisions 6. allowing people to take on new responsibilities 7. open-door policy.  All of these rely on the fundamentally critical technical skill of being able to give and receive feedback and the heart-connected qualities that allow people to thrive because you want them to do their best.  For me, really good leaders empower people to succeed.  Allowing freedom is great, but to do this without building trust and sound relationships first, could be an action taken too soon. Interesting topic!

Strategy Is Not About The Competition 

Strategy Is Not About The Competition  | New Leadership | Scoop.it
As an inherently competitive species, we are greatly tempted to think of business as war or sport where one’s gains can only come at the expense of our rivals—where winning means the other guy is losing. (Or as Genghis Khan is often quoted: “It is not enough that I succeed. Everyone else must fail.”) Indeed, there are strong motivational benefits to rallying around “beat Coke” if you are Pepsi, “buy Detroit” if you are Chrysler, or a “holy war with Google” if you are Apple. But such “strategies” will only be successful if they spur their organizations to bring better products and total value propositions to their target customers.
Business is not war or sport. Strategy in business is different than strategy in war and sport. It’s not about competitors. It’s about the customer, your value proposition, and the capabilities you need to deliver it better than anyone else. It’s that simple—and that difficult.

An effective manager can make all the difference between a successful team and one that falls short: management accounts for 70% of the variance in employee engagement, which hugely impacts all aspects of workplace performance.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 10, 10:16 AM
Upward leadership, at its core, is about developing discipline and mastering the ability to deliver the goods under direction. In some circles, this might be called followership. A good follower embraces responsibility, works to maintain trust at all levels, and never forgets their true convictions. Learning to serve and follow builds humility and empathy—two traits that translate directly into effective upward leadership, as well as effective downward leadership.

Practising leaders often have to manage their emotions as part of enacting their leadership role: whilst we all do this as part of our everyday lives, for leaders it can be an important “tool of the trade”. So how do they perform the “emotional labour” this entails and still feel authentic as leaders?
