The Culture Change Journey Essentials: a compass, a roadmap, and a guide

The Culture Change Journey Essentials: a compass, a roadmap, and a guide | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Part one of this article covered the importance of understanding how cultures evolve as a foundation for improving how leaders manage work on specific performance priorities, challenges, or goals. These insights serve as a “compass” for leaders and dramatically increase the likelihood of achieving results.  Leaders also need a clear roadmap and guide to manage the performance improvement journey, especially if a major culture issue (teamwork, discipline / organization, creativity / innovation, etc.) is impacting results. If you missed that article, make sure you read it here first.

To Inspire Employees, Speak Their Language

To Inspire Employees, Speak Their Language | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Companies want employees to go beyond their job description and show enthusiasm towards organisational aims. Yet, in return they can no longer promise job security. The new market realities are forcing companies to be agile: to move quickly (with a smaller workforce) and easily (with a flexible workforce). If companies want to attract and retain the best talent, they must focus on the value that they are delivering to the employees in lieu of job security

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 19, 6:21 AM

Values exploration holds an important place in any leadership development initiative, be that coaching, leadership training, executive education courses, or reflection activities. 


Once armed with deep knowledge of who they are, and what they can be, a transformative blueprint for effective personal leadership and development can be created and implemented

.

In work and life, self-aware leaders make tough decisions that will be guided by core values.



Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, September 22, 5:24 AM

An “insightfully aware” leader has a profound and clear understanding of his or her purpose and the reasons behind it. Self-awareness of values helps leaders to reflect upon their emotions, goals, needs and motives. Individuals who are able to identify and articulate their values will generate meaningful insights about how they see themselves, the circumstances they face, the behaviours they display, and their potential reactions to specific situations. Comprehending their values (personal, work and organisational) enables leaders to know and accomplish what they believe is important.

The Thought Leadership Funnel

The Thought Leadership Funnel | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In an article by niche marketer Bruce Mayhew entitled Niche Marketing: Inverting the Sales Funnel, Mayhew proposed that businesses were wasting precious resources following the traditional sales funnel.In an attempt to reach the largest audience possible, marketers would usually point their efforts to as many people as possible regardless of their inherent relationship with your brand or their interest in your products.


But according to Mayhew, “If you invert the sales funnel and concentrate on selling to fewer people who you know are very likely to need or want your product or service, you’ll spend less time and fewer resources to close the deal.”

We are told that being passionate about our work is important for success, but can too much passion get in the way?

 

We can define passion in the workplace as caring, an intense desire for seeing success. There is a focused energy that goes along with passion that can be infectious. But when combined with an inability to lead, or understand how to communicate with others, then passion translates into something else.

The Shifting Workplace - Keeping Managers Out of Control

The Shifting Workplace - Keeping Managers Out of Control | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The industrial mindset that believes employees can easily be replaced with another “body” is dead. It is not easy to find talent today. It’s not simply because talent is tough to find. More talented people are electing to hang their own shingle rather than work for someone else. The result is a talent pool that is smaller than the needs of business. It takes more than savvy managers to navigate this rapidly shifting business issue. CEO David Hassell writes about mindset shifts that can help leaders take a modern, realistic approach to attract and keep talent in today’s dynamic labor market.

6 Ways Being Mindful Can Make You a Better Leader, by Bruna Martinuzzi

6 Ways Being Mindful Can Make You a Better Leader, by Bruna Martinuzzi | New Leadership | Scoop.it
As Jon Kabat-Zinn puts it, mindfulness "wakes us up to the fact that our lives unfold only in moments." If we're not fully present for those moments, we may miss what's most valuable in our lives, both personally and professionally. Simply put, mindfulness is about not living in your head all the time and is about paying attention to where you are, what you're doing, or who you're talking to so that you are in touch with the right here, right now. Research shows that mindfulness reduces stress and increases concentration and clarity. Read on for five simple ways to practice mindfulness to improve your personal and professional life.

Our researchers mainly follow the principles and rules laid down by the above important policy and rules.Under Articles 2.4, 3.6, 3.10&11, 8.1(b) of the By-laws of the Commission of the Churches on international affairs, we have posted our research report in United Nations Global Compact which containing of solving of problems between Christians, Jews, Muslims and Hindus in the world. In accordance with Articles 3.12 of the above By-Laws, it is a duty of commission of Churches to maintain and provide for the maintenance of contacts with International bodies such as the United Nations and its agencies include regional bodies and other non governmental Organisations, which will assist in the attainment of the aims of the Commission. The matter has being brought it to the notice of the World Churches Council and the Commission of the Churches asked its notice on the matter to the United Nations for your appropriate decisions. ?The World Churches Council Policy Paper on Social Justice and Common Goods is the best policy to the World peace and unity solutions, which has been published on 22 March 2011 and the same is in accordance with Psalm 85. The Church cannot succeed if it, isolates itself, Not only must Christians reach out to Muslims and other faiths in the spirit of ecumenism, but there is a need to embrace other people of different philosophical convictions. This requires ideological tolerance, maturity and self assurance in what one believes in. Such coalition building is made easier by choosing issues that unite organizations and movements and which have less potential causing divisions. At the same time we need an honest and inventive method of dealing with differences. The global movement for economic justice relies considerably on policy analysis and research conducted by hundreds if not thousands of academics researchers and scholars. ?Our consequences of the changing power relations in today's world is that there is more room in the public sphere for the affirmation of collective values and principles, experience proves that an informed public opinion can be powerful today, and can change governments public and international agendas. Again Churches are challenged to make use of this opportunity. They need to read the signs of time and to make their voices heard by responding to peoples cries for justice and dignity, and by speaking truth to the powers- whoever and wherever their may be. ?Christians do not have ready made answers and solutions to propose. The Bible offers guidelines (love, sharing, justice for the poor) but does not defined one "Christian" economy or "Christian" politics. ?Churches and Church related organizations can initiate public debates and largely use media means to reach a broader constituency, furthermore, regional thematic discussions can be facilitated with the ecumenical family. WCC should develop specific analysis depending on the context. ?What are theological implications for commodification common goods? ?How shall we ensure the participation all people in managing common goods in the world? ?How do we deal with power imbalances in the world? ?How can the ecumenical family engage itself effectively and in a coherent and convincing way in addressing global power imbalance? ?How can WCC lead a climate change campaign with social justice as a focus? ?What kind of collective values can be draw for the Churches to guide them in addressing the problem of commodification of common goods? ?The above questions have been answered in our research materials available at http://www.goldenduas.com and alsohttp://www.facebook.com/research of international development solutions and the same are to be discussed by the Churches, public and all its organizations in the interest of public safety, peace, unity, health, wealth, faith, interfaith ?                 Under this circumstances, it is just and necessary that UK, USA, Cambridge, Churches on the International Affairs are requested to accept our research paper and also our research organization as an organization under other faith category to assist the commission to achieve its goal of International Peace and climate changes solutions for the benefit of world community especially Christians, Jewish and Muslims, under the by-law 3.11 of CCIA. In view of the aforementioned submissions in the interest of maintenance of International Peace and Security, UN may be pleased to authorize our organization in the name and style of` Research on International Development Solutions `and also our research report in confirmatory with U/A 96 of the present Charter read with U/A 23 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and thus render Justice.  Now, Palestine Muslims are fighting with Israel , both countries are affected and innocent people are killed frequently which is against the Quranic verses 7:137 & 5:33 that no one can claim Israel Government areas which is a place of Israel People but not Muslim or Christian and they can only Allow worship in the Holy Places of Israel .

Timely and relevant post here from from Elizabeth Stincelli,  @infinitestin.  I completely agree with her, especially on the following statement: 


The evolution of work utilizes these social avenues to promote organizations, monitor public opinion, and stay connected to customers and colleagues. You must learn to be conscious of the impact your posts, status changes, pictures, likes, and shares have both personally and professionally. If you are going to be responsible for steering your own career path, you have to care about your digital footprint and your personal brand.

Is Integrity the Secret to Great Leadership?

Is Integrity the Secret to Great Leadership? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The actions of a business are its value statement. Actions speak volumes about what really matters most – not what should matter, not what we wish mattered, but what really does matter to us. They swamp mission statements, speeches or memos, and they eclipse intentions.

 

Having the kind of integrity that leaves no room between what we say and what we do is really hard work. It’s much easier to follow the words of JR Ewing of the TV series Dallas, who said: “Once you lose your integrity, everything’s easy.” Lots of people have chosen this path. Others find it to be too much work to align their decisions and actions with what they claim as priorities.

From the article:

If you’re leading a team or a company, if you’re part of a family or teaching a class, your only lasting message will be what you do, not what you say.

Chris Shern's curator insight, September 20, 7:21 AM

It all basically starts with how you lead yourself and how you choose to lead your life.

 

HJJP's curator insight, September 21, 1:40 AM

Considering that for most of us, trust and confidence in our leaders are identified as the most important attributes we want them to have, stands to reason that integrity, the element which inspires said trust and confidence in someone, would be the central ingredient of great leadership. 

Or is it?

Can we stand here and say for sure that all great leaders are or were people of great integrity? Or is it the appearance of integrity that matters? Or maybe it does not matter at all, and it is your ability to set up smoke and mirrors that make you someone people would follow? or is it your ability to inspire fear?


So, the most important aspect is how do we define GREAT LEADERHSIP? Is it based on results? Is it based on getting people to follow them blindly?

 

Was Genghis Khan a great leader? Julius Cesar? Francisco Franco? Hitler? JFK? GW Bush? Clinton?

 

Would be interested in hearing what people have to say about this subject.
