(From the article): “Don’t join in their passive aggressive games,” advises Meager. “Avoid colliding with them in gossip or putting others down, it will only come back on you and you may end up with the blame in the ‘he said, she said game.”

Learning from the Persuasive Genius of Great Leaders

Learning from the Persuasive Genius of Great Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Great leaders look for empowering frames and communicate them explicitly, to ensure others understand their intent and interpret their actions through the new lens, rather than old frames.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 23, 9:42 PM

The art of framing is an essential skill for executives who want to motivate and inspire.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 24, 9:35 AM

(From the article): Every conversation, every communication, and every decision begins with a frame. When we provide a context that expands our thinking, includes others, and gives meaning to our efforts, we help spark creativity and insight in ourselves, our peers, and our leaders. Perhaps that explains the old Disney company joke encouraging its animators and designers to challenge a limiting frame:

 

“How many Imagineers does it take to change a lightbulb?”

 

“Does it have to be a lightbulb?”

The Best Ways to Manage Introvert and Extrovert Employees

The Best Ways to Manage Introvert and Extrovert Employees | New Leadership | Scoop.it

As leaders, we’re tasked with building teams made up of people with diverse backgrounds, cultures and lifestyles. In today’s global economy, we not only accept this… we embrace the diversity


As we manage, however, there may be one differentiator we don’t think about often enough; one that can have a major impact on how our teams collaborate, innovate and create: temperament. And specifically, the disconnect that can occur as introverts and extroverts communicate, process information – and, ultimately, work together.

Positive Teams Are More Productive

Positive Teams Are More Productive | New Leadership | Scoop.it
All managers would like their teams to be more productive. Yet most companies are using the same old methods: strategic plans, goal-setting, streamlining operations, reducing inefficiency. Others are offering employee perks, such as on-site food, daycare, or gyms. Others are offering bigger bonuses or flexible schedules.

Kim Cameron and his colleagues at the University of Michigan, however, have discovered a way to improve performance that has nothing to do with dishing out benefits or deploying new processes. In a research article published in the Journal of Applied Behavioral Science Cameron and his coauthors found that a workplace characterized by positive and virtuous practices excels in a number of domains.

Nature is the world’s most effective designer” according to Frank Stephenson, Design Director at McLaren Automotive. Looking at what nature has created over millions of years of evolution to get to the ‘perfect shape’, the designers at McLaren Automotive get their inspiration from animal anatomy, tree branches, blood vessels and river deltas to create some of the most sophisticated and efficient design solutions. If McLaren Automotive manages to create better designs by stealing from nature, surely nature must contain lessons that apply to business and leadership as well.

10 Principles of Organization Design

10 Principles of Organization Design | New Leadership | Scoop.it

 In the 18th annual PwC survey of chief executive officers, conducted in 2014, many CEOs anticipated significant disruptions to their businesses during the next five years as a result of external worldwide trends. One such trend, cited by 61 percent of the respondents, was an increasing number of competitors. The same number of respondents foresaw changes in customer behavior creating disruption. Fifty percent said they expected changes in distribution channels. As CEOs look to stay ahead of these trends, they recognize the need to change the organization’s design. But for that redesign to be successful, a company must make its changes as effectively and painlessly as possible, in a way that aligns with its strategy, invigorates employees, builds distinctive new capabilities, and makes it easier to attract customers.

These fundamental guidelines, drawn from experience, can help you reshape your organization to fit your business strategy.


Steve Bax's curator insight, March 24, 6:00 AM

This is a very topical, well written piece on the ongoing issues of organisational structure design. The principles are sound and resonate with previous theorists such as Lewin, Deal and Kennedy. There are some good examples and strong recommendations for what NOT to do too. The comments on benchmarking are particularly relevant for many organisations seeking to establish their own position in the marketplace. Another key message is to let go of the past. Leaders need to build on strengths - formal or informal - and look ahead.
