5 Tips to Avoid a Critical Leadership Mistake

5 Tips to Avoid a Critical Leadership Mistake | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I knew Gary wasn’t happy.

Early in my career, when I first began leading team-leaders, one of them was clearly struggling – he looked frustrated, sounded frustrated, and it didn’t take a genius to know something was bothering Gary.

So I asked if I could buy him lunch and hear what was on his mind.

As we ate, he began sharing complaint after complaint…he’d been disrespected and abused by a senior manager, his team wasn’t doing as well as he hoped, he wasn’t sure the company’s vision matched his own…and so on.

Gary had appreciated my invitation to lunch and the opportunity to be heard.

But as he started sharing his concerns, I couldn’t stand it…

The leadership manifesto: developing leaders at all levels

The leadership manifesto: developing leaders at all levels | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Thee concept and nature of leadership has probably never been more debated than it is now. Last year saw Theresa May take over as PM in the UK after David Cameron stepped down, while the US elected a new President  - where his opponent criticised him for having no prior political experience.
 
The debate around leadership looks set to continue. Trump’s inauguration dominates headlines, Northern Ireland’s deputy first minister has resigned, meaning an assembly election is inevitable, and the French Presidential elections are set for May.

These political upheavals have repercussions across the world of business. Redrawing the next 12 months and beyond will present uncertain and potentially challenging times, but businesses who are themselves able to ensure they have trustworthy, capable and confident leaders in place will be able to navigate this uncertainty and even thrive.

Boss or Leader - Which One Are You?  

Boss or Leader - Which One Are You?   | New Leadership | Scoop.it

At first glance, it may seem that being a boss or manager is the same thing as being a leader. You might say that all three of those words are synonymous with each other. On paper, this may be true, but the fact of the matter is that there’s a very real difference between managing a team and truly leading a team.

Below, you’ll discover what 3 of those key differences are, and you’ll learn how you can move from just being a boss to being an amazing leader.

11 Leadership Guidelines for the Digital Age

11 Leadership Guidelines for the Digital Age | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Ten years ago, when we would ask senior executives or company directors what “digital” meant to them, their response would usually be something related to social media. Today, it might be apps, Big Data, 3D printing, “the cloud” or another current example of digital technology. All such answers are equally correct – and equally in error. More important than the specific innovations introduced by the digital revolution is their earth-shaking cumulative impact on business and on organisations. There is no border anymore between the pre- and post-digital worlds. Digital is business and business is digital.

Yet, top corporate leaders are not taking charge of digitalising their organisations, as was made clear to us by a survey we conducted in 2016 – to which 1,160 managers, executives and board directors responded – that developed into a report available for free online. We discovered that most board members lack the knowledge and awareness necessary to lead a digital transformation.

What the heck is wrong with meetings? [PART 1] | New Leadership | Scoop.it

We  spend approximately 1/3 of our week in meetings and about 50% of that time is wasted. That’s about a day a week per employee. Multiply that by the number of employees in your business and you can calculate the cost just in terms of salary. And that doesn’t include the lost opportunity cost.  But does it need to be this way? In the first of two articles about meetings, Blaire Palmer busts three myths about meetings that keep up stuck in this loop.

How People Learn to Become Resilient

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 6, 2:43 AM

Resilience presents a challenge for psychologists. Whether you can be said to have it or not largely depends not on any particular psychological test but on the way your life unfolds. If you are lucky enough to never experience any sort of adversity, we won’t know how resilient you are. It’s only when you’re faced with obstacles, stress, and other environmental threats that resilience, or the lack of it, emerges: Do you succumb or do you surmount?

Are your employees seen but not heard?

Are your employees seen but not heard? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

People no longer just rely on trade unions or staff forums as a channel through which to express their views and concerns about their working conditions. With the rise of conduits like Glassdoor, Twitter and other social media, employee voice is becoming more public and is being captured in real time.

But it’s often not being heard in the workplace so it’s important for employers to consider how aligned their internal/external mechanisms are, and make sure the voices of all of their employees are heard, because not doing so risks alienating people.

Trust , inspiration and transparacy are written about over and over again... few leaders take notice. No one cares about your title or hidden agenda ... at the end of the day can you go home and look your loved ones in the eyes and say " I made some one better  today" I recognized someone .... it's not a popularity contest but ironically the best leaders are upfront and out there for their people. ... your legacy and how you are remembered is a day to day task.

Leadership Lessons: Understanding and Appreciating Differences | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Appreciating differences is a key step to understanding other individuals we work with. If you feel this is an area in which you need to grow, there are some practical steps you can take.

First, remember the saying, attributed to Native Americans, “To understand a man, you must walk a mile in his moccasins.” While most of us can intellectually think what a situation is like from another person’s perspective, actually understanding and appreciating differences in what they experience on a day-to-day basis is when we really learn the lesson.

5 Strategies to Effectively Integrate Collaboration and Competition

5 Strategies to Effectively Integrate Collaboration and Competition | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Collaboration has certainly become a buzzword in business circles — and with good reason. The ability to work together with both internal and external teams will make or break a business.

But some see collaboration and competition as two opposing ends of a spectrum; you get one or the other. Fortunately, it’s not an either/or. Building a successful collaborative culture, while maintaining competitive success, requires business leaders to understand the meanings and advantages (and even disadvantages) of both styles, and what these mean to business success. Broken down to their most simple forms, we might say competition equals success, and collaboration equals buy-in.

What the heck is wrong with meetings? [PART 2] | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I'm often asked to help organisations design their offsite meetings. I’m presented with an agenda with timings, guest speakers, topic titles and breaks. One or two of the time slots have not been labelled or maybe contain the label “interactive” and I’m asked what they could do in those slots that’s a bit different?

I don’t want this to be you.

At this point it’s very difficult to breath life in to such an event. My job as facilitator or MC or moderator is inevitably going to involve introducing people, thanking people and trying to keep the energy up during what is going to be a gruelling day.

The problem is the thinking that leads to such agendas. And this flawed thinking is inherent in how we think about all meetings, not just the big ones that happen offsite in lovely country hotels.

Working with your Leadership Vision  

Working with your Leadership Vision   | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A vision is your overview of the way things could be.  It is your clear image of what you are working towards.  In your role as a leader, you can see how things could be improved and made better.  Putting all these pieces together in a format of how things should be will give you your overall leadership vision that helps you to get your ideas across powerfully, accurately, and quickly.  Once you have a vision, you tell people about it and use it to lead people.

more...
Daniel Tremblay's curator insight, March 16, 8:14 AM
"Effectively communicating the vision means living the vision; that means doing what you say and practicing what you preach."

One thing is not clearly stated in the article.  The vision has to be communicated with our heart and soul; not only with our head.  As en employee, we must FEEL that the vision is sincere, genuine, authentic, ...  We must BELIEVE in what the leader says (and not only understand what he is saying).  Without the personnal involvement from the leader, the vision communicated may remain only bla bla bla.

Combien de fois voyons-nous des situations où les "bottines ne suivent pas les babines"...  Ou qu'on ne sent pas l'authenticité derrière le message...
donhornsby's curator insight, March 20, 8:47 AM
Sharing a vision is a central role of a leader – a leadership vision gives people a viewpoint, something to work towards and an idea of what things can be like. It helps people raise their hopes and expectations; it inspires them. When people are inspired, they are more likely to consistently work on something.

The unfortunate truth is that we’re living in an increasingly divisive world – whether it’s because of our political viewpoints, because of our religious beliefs, or even because of where we or our parents came from. And yet, the undeniable truth is that the longevity of today’s organizations is no longer dependent on what technologies you use, where you operate, or even what you create. Rather, your organization’s ability to adapt, evolve, and grow in today’s interconnected, global environment is dependent on the people who show up every day to help your organization move one step closer to achieving your shared purpose.

Motivating People Starts with Having the Right Attitude | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Most leaders know what strong motivation looks like. When I ask leadership development clients to describe the type of motivation they’d like to see in their teams, they mention qualities such as persistence, being a self-starter, having a sense of accountability for and commitment to achieving results, and being willing to go the extra mile on projects or to help other team members.
