There are three essential principles, three “L’s” that support and fuel authentic leadership: Love, Listen, and Leap. When facing difficulties with colleagues, family or community, we serve our purpose best when we lead with love, listening, and then leap to a higher level.

5 Ways Even Good Leaders Roadblock Real Organizational Change

5 Ways Even Good Leaders Roadblock Real Organizational Change | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Organizations going through a change initiative – or ones that have experienced significant change organically – can attest to one fact: Change is not easy.


Whether it’s implementing a new process, policy, or procedure – or trying to change the overall culture of an organization – there are more reasons the initiative will not succeed than reasons it will. That’s not to say that change is impossible. And with the right leadership and a committed team, any initiative can be successful. But there are always roadblocks.


And one of the most common roadblocks – one that surprises those leading the change?


The leader.

12 Ways Going Social Improved My Leadership as CEO

12 Ways Going Social Improved My Leadership as CEO | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Several years ago, I was on a CEO panel. As the moderator asked me questions, I noticed that all of us on stage were answering along similar lines. We were being asked about the use of social media in an increasingly mobile world. I think we were all pleased with our answers. They sounded…informed, smart, forward-thinking.
There was just one problem.
None of us was qualified to answer.

4 Questions That Help Build a Winning Leadership Team

4 Questions That Help Build a Winning Leadership Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it
In the SEALs, whenever we were on patrol, there were three fundamental questions each operator would constantly ask himself:

Is my gun up?
Where would I go if we were contacted by the enemy?
How can I support my buddy?
Of course, asking the same questions over and over for hours on end gets monotonous, so the occasional, “How am I going to beat the next level in HALO?” question would surreptitiously sneak in, too.

The takeaway here is this. What questions -- when asked repeatedly -- breed relevance and avoid obsolescence? In other words, what questions never get old, continue to foster growth, and directly apply to every situation?

If delivering value every day is part of your organizational “menu,” consider these four questions to drive perpetual leadership development:

How to stop clashing team members disrupting performance

How to stop clashing team members disrupting performance | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It’s not surprising that if you have two team members who actively dislike each other, this can affect team performance. However, a new study has suggested ways in which teams can overcome any negative effects.

When two members of staff who dislike each other are forced to work together in a team, the negative effects can expand past the originating members, affecting the relationships and performance of the whole team. However, recent research suggests that it may not affect team performance if there two key factors in play:

Do you challenge your staff out of their comfort zone?

Do you challenge your staff out of their comfort zone? | New Leadership | Scoop.it
As an employer I want my staff to enjoy what they do for a living. I know that a more engaged workforce is more productive and more loyal and that this means businesses benefit from greater profitability. It also results in lower rates of absenteeism and better staff retention, leading to lower recruitment and training costs and greater continuity for customers. 
I believe the desire to create a contented workforce is admirable but business owners and managers need to be careful - if contentment stifles ambition in large numbers, a business will struggle to develop its full potential and that won’t benefit anyone.

7 Attributes of CEOs Who Get Social Media

7 Attributes of CEOs Who Get Social Media | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Peter Aceto, the CEO of Tangerine, recently said in The Globe and Mail, “I would rather engage in a Twitter conversation with a single customer than see our company attempt to attract the attention of millions in a coveted Superbowl commercial.”
This is the preference of a truly social CEO. Unfortunately, chief executives that embrace and understand the promise of social media are rare, so rare that we call them “blue unicorns” in our book, A World Gone Social. Why blue unicorns? Because CEOs that embrace social as much as leaders like Aceto are still so uncommon that we aren’t just looking for any unicorn, we’re looking for a specific color of unicorn.

The Counterintuitive Art of Leading by Letting Go

The Counterintuitive Art of Leading by Letting Go | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Often, these actions inadvertently have the effect of reducing the employee’s drive toward empowerment.

Stop leading like it is the 1900s | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Zappos has recently been the news about its move to holacracy. I find it amusing that self proclaimed consulting gurus and more have been so apprehensive and negative in their predictions around how this will end. The way I see it, the transition to new forms of leading and organizing work will not happen overnight. We need leaders who are willing to have the courage to step outside their comfort zone to experiment and explore new ways of organizing work. In a world where many companies think flexible work is innovative, I have to applaud Zappos for their bold attempt.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 11, 7:57 AM

(From the article): With the power of social media, it’s easy for leaders to shine a light on the movement. Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge? Who started it? No one remembers, but that person is a true leader. Once you have a movement, share it with colleagues, friends, family and with the world. Remember, as Sivers explains, when the movement begins, others will join willingly, because most people will fear being left alone, if they fail to join the crowd. Again, consider the Ice Bucket Challenge. You had to join or risk being left out of one of the most powerful movements to come along in many years.
