Don’t Become an Invisible Leader in Your Busiest Times

Don’t Become an Invisible Leader in Your Busiest Times | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Great leadership requires a whole lot more than hard work. Sure, the ability to buckle down and plow through tasks is great, but disappearing into the shadows while doing so is something I call “invisible leadership” — managing like Casper the Friendly Ghost.


These folks have given up on inspiring their crews, influencing other departments, and enacting companywide change management. Instead, they stay in their swim lane and complete their daily responsibilities without stepping on toes.
It’s low-emissions leadership. We do

n’t need this type of leadership. We actually want our leaders to leave a visible footprint.

The Trouble with Putting Goals Ahead of Strategy

The Trouble with Putting Goals Ahead of Strategy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Many business leaders subscribe to the classic definition of strategy as a set of actions designed to achieve an overall aim. In other words, they believe strategy starts with a goal. But for companies that have implemented winning strategies, that’s not how it typically happens.

3 Leadership Traits Your Employees Need to Exhibit When You Aren’t Around - Linked 2 Leadership

3 Leadership Traits Your Employees Need to Exhibit When You Aren’t Around - Linked 2 Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Whether you’re out of the office or your team members are out in the field, they must be able to step into leadership roles and make decisions that will result in positive customer outcomes.

And when something goes awry, your employees need to:

Be prepared to find solutions
Placate frustrated customers
And ultimately turn a potential disaster into a nonissue
This requires that each and every team member is properly prepared to lead with responsibility.

Cultivating a sense of personal responsibility among your team members isn’t just good for your company; it also helps your employees grow.

Joe Boutte's curator insight, July 1, 8:08 AM

If your team doesn't know what to do when you aren't around, you've failed as a leader.  The world needs everyday leaders who are autonomous, but understand their leader's vision, intent, and expectations to create the output and outcomes required.

13 Challenges All Coaching-Managers Face

13 Challenges All Coaching-Managers Face | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It's more difficult to be a coaching-manager than to be a coach that comes in from the outside. Open listening, courageous honesty, and not fixing, seem more challenging when coaches and coachees have work history.


Via Marc Wachtfogel, PhD

Marc Wachtfogel, PhD's curator insight, Today, 7:38 AM

There are two themes here. The first is the difference between internal and external coaches. While both focus primarily on enhancing performance, the latter has a clear goal for a finite period. The second is the newer practice of manager as coach. However, a framework needs to be in place to avoid ambiguity and subjectivity. With clear goals, timelines, metrics and development plans (i.e. a career ownership model) conversations, while uncomfortable for some, provides an objective basis. Given that feedback is an essential role of a manager, new-manager training with process, tools and resources can help. But, nothing can replace actual practice. Perhaps, a little coaching can help.

Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader

Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it
A new Ketchum leadership study of more than 6,000 respondents in 12 countries reveals people are looking more to employees at all levels for leadership instead of just those at the top of the org chart. According to the fourth-annual Ketchum Leadership Communication Monitor (KLCM), 41 percent of respondents believe leadership should come mainly from the organization and all its employees, compared with 25 percent that believe leadership should come only from the CEO.

This aligns with three years of KLCM data pointing to the demise of the CEO-as-celebrity leadership style and highlights a greater-than-ever opportunity for "leadership by all" – a collaborative and communicative culture that empowers employees at every level.

While the CEO, board and senior management still play an important role, the study suggests that employees throughout an organization can and should provide leadership. The survey identified the top five traits of an effective leader: leading by example (63 percent), communicating in an open and transparent way (61 percent), admitting mistakes (59 percent), bringing out the best in others (58 percent), and handling controversial issues or crises calmly and confidently (58 percent). These are traits that every CEO should possess, and also ones that every good employee would have.

some good leadership traits identified here: and remember leadership happens at all levels!

Scott J. Simmerman's curator insight, July 2, 9:16 AM

We call it "leadership." It frames up as the engagement of the organization and its people to look for the countless performance improvement opportunities. Leadership CAN"T be only from the top down -- that is de-motivational and you know that, "A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world." (John LeCarre) -- It is the hands on people who know about most of the things that need to be fixed to optimize performance results.

Leading With Less

Leading With Less | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Rebel Leaders unite! The new buzzphrase we must embrace, believe and employ is:

 

Less With Less.


Now, this will truly test the limits of your leadership. And it will test the resolve of your superiors. But it is the right thing to do for your followers and vital to the long-term sustainability of your organization.


One of the hardest trials of any leader is to say, “I can’t/we can’t/this organization can’t.” Many insecure leaders see it as a confession of weakness or failure of their leadership abilities. That could not be further from the truth. Now, higher-level leaders routinely say they do not want yes-people in their organization. They remind us the last thing any efficiently effective leader wants is a staff who just agrees and never pushes back. But do they mean it?

Does Articulating Your Corporate Values Matter?

Does Articulating Your Corporate Values Matter? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Corporate values are commonplace. They are stated on corporate literature and easily found on company websites so that visitors can get a sense of what is important to the organisation.  Stating values is also a way to shape internal stakeholders’ understanding  of the company and an attempt to influence their behaviours.
