What Kind Of Leadership Is Needed In Flat Hierarchies?

What Kind Of Leadership Is Needed In Flat Hierarchies? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Our shift from bureaucratic to distributed leadership took nearly a century. According to Deborah Ancona, a professor of management and organizational studies at MIT, companies in America circa 1920s were "super bureaucracies." Then, in the 1960s, people focused on interpersonal relationships and lots of discussions centered around trust and empathy. In the 1990s, it was all about organizations needing to undergo large-scale changes and vision. Finally, today’s workplace centers on what’s called variously eco-leadership, collaborative leadership, or distributed leadership.

"It’s all about your network," says Ancona, author of X-Teams: How to Build Teams That Lead, Innovate, and Succeed, as in who do you know outside and inside of your team. "If you understand the internal network in your company, you have a higher chance of moving ahead

5 Mistakes Leaders Make When Building Teams

5 Mistakes Leaders Make When Building Teams | New Leadership | Scoop.it

One of the most important tasks of any leader: build a solid team around the mission at hand.


This always sounds easier than it really is. Bringing diverse individuals – with different strengths, weaknesses, skillsets, and in most cases, their own goals and agendas – to work toward a common goal is not an easy job.


And yet sometimes the right team is in place, only to have the leader make mistakes that torpedo team dynamics. Teams become unproductive at best… and toxic at worst.


Learn to identify these leadership mistakes, take steps to avoid (or correct) them and improve the overall performance of your organization:

On Leadership, Forgiveness and The Authentic Leader

On Leadership, Forgiveness and The Authentic Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it
The full return on forgiveness comes through the commitment of the forgiven to learn, change and grow and, in the organization, will remain largely unknown and unknowable.

There are a few ways, however, in which some of the return might be measured:

Marked change in attitude or behavior
Demonstrable growth in knowledge, skills or abilities
Improvement of overall effort in performance, etc.
This said, much of the return depends on how it is carried out and the extent of the personal/ performance change demanded of good stewardship.

How Emotional Intelligence Became a Key Leadership Skill

How Emotional Intelligence Became a Key Leadership Skill | New Leadership | Scoop.it

An understanding of what exactly constitutes emotional intelligence is important not only because the capacity is so central to leadership but because people strong in some of its elements can be utterly lacking in others, sometimes to disastrous effect.

Still, it is sign that the field is reaching a certain level of maturity that we are beginning to see some counterarguments. Most notably, a Wharton professor, Adam Grant, who in his own research has reported a lack of correlation between scores on tests of emotional intelligence and business results. While Goleman and others contest his methods, Mayer himself pointed out in 2002 HBR article that “emotional intelligence isn’t the only way to attain success as a leader. A brilliant strategist who can maximize profits may be able to hire and keep talented employees even if he or she doesn’t have strong personal connections with them.” But building those strong connections is still probably a safer bet than ignoring them.

I believe that EI is more than a skill, but more of an understanding of every aspect of leadership or human nature.  At its core, EI is about people and recognizing their emotions and how to channel that energy using the skills of influence to create human energy that results in products, excellent service, innovation, ideas, and profits, to name a few outcomes.

The Art and Science of LeadershipSwitch & Shift | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Truly great leaders are both artists and scientists.


Leadership draws ideas from across the intellectual spectrum, and it forges them into something unique and its own. Unlike so many areas of thinking it can’t be neatly stuck away in a box labeled ‘art’ or ‘science’. There are acts of analysis and of empathy, of slow careful refinement and sudden intuitive leaps. There are times to measure what we already have and times to create something completely new.


Leadership is both art and science.

Make It OK for Employees to Challenge Your Ideas

Make It OK for Employees to Challenge Your Ideas | New Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’re a leader, you can put yourself in a cocoon … a good news cocoon” said Nilekani during our recent discussion. “Everyone says, ‘It’s alright, there’s no problem,’ and the next day everything’s wrong.”


So how do leaders keep themselves from being isolated at the top? For Nilekani, it comes down to one vital factor: asking and being asked uncomfortable questions.


Via donhornsby

donhornsby's curator insight, May 12, 8:44 AM

(From the article): The habit of asking the right questions and relating well to others inside and outside an organization helps leaders see beyond the protective “cocoon” that coworkers may be keeping them in. However, these habits extend far beyond the here and now. They also impact the next generation of business leaders.

 

“When you’re building an institution, you’re consciously building something that will be beyond you,” said Nilekani. “It’ll exist beyond you, it’ll grow beyond you, it’ll sustain itself beyond you … it’s about creating culture and values that persist. It’s that psychic glue that holds it all together.”

 

By establishing a candid culture, companies, nonprofits, and governments alike can empower future frontrunners to never stop challenging the status quo — and each other — in order to create sustainable, positive impact. While you may not always like what you see and hear, it’s better to have the option to change your path now versus learning too little, too late tomorrow.

 

“As my colleague and former chairman said, ‘The bad news should come up in the elevator and the good news should walk up,’” said Nilekani.

The Paucity of Leadership

The Paucity of Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The issue of leadership represents the most pressing challenge for global organizations.  According to Deloitte’s Human Capital Survey, the vast majority of human resources and business leaders (86%) identified leadership as a significant problem and 50% saw this leadership deficit as immediately pressing. 

What is leading to such dismal statistics? This paucity of leadership has myriad causes and some clear remedies. Problems include: The failure to integrate leadership development into the culture of the organization; insufficient and inconsistent investment in people; only allowing select employees to benefit from education and development programs; inadequate succession planning, especially for leaders in the middle to lower levels of the organization; programs focused on theory rather than practical examples; inadequate accountability and insufficient measurement of results.

There also needs to be less labels like capital and resources and assets when referencing human beings. We need to better better humans it's a simple and complicated as that.
