7 Tips to Turn Bad Bosses into Inspiring Leaders - TalentCulture | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Coaching isn’t a new leadership term. Chances are that you’ve already come across it in some form or another. In fact, research done in 2006 by leadership development firm BlessingWhite found that 73 percent of managers had some form of coaching training, but only 23 percent of people being coached (fewer than one in four!) thought that the coaching had a positive effect on their job.

(Empathic Leadership) Forbes: Become A Better Leader Through Self-Empathy

(Empathic Leadership) Forbes: Become A Better Leader Through Self-Empathy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

There are many different leadership styles and qualities that make a good leader, but people tend to be most attracted to and influenced by leaders who are empathetic.

 

Start With Self-Empathy

How we feel about and relate to ourselves directly impacts how we relate to the world and interact with others. We tend to place the blame for difficult feelings, such as anger or jealousy, on the actions of other people or our surroundings. Most people assume that our feelings are the result of other people or external circumstances. However, our feelings actually arise based on whether we perceive our needs as being met.

 

When we perceive our basic human needs, including our need to be acknowledged and respected, as being addressed, we're content. When we perceive that they aren't being met, or that they are being under-addressed, that's when feelings of frustration, anger, sadness and jealousy emerge.

Google Says These 5 Characteristics Can Make or Break a Successful Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Google studied 180 teams through its Project Aristotle over two years. They were on a quest to find the common traits among the most successful ones. Going in, they assumed the best teams were comprised of the most skilled people. But that wasn't the case. Instead, they found 5 core characteristics of high-performing teams: 1) Dependability, 2) Structure and clarity, 3) Meaning, 4) Impact, and 5) Psychological Safety.

Leadership as a Partnership

Leadership as a Partnership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Responsibility for leadership shouldn’t fall on only the person with position power. Leadership needs to be more of a partnership, according to Susan Fowler, co-creator of the newly redesigned Self Leadership program from The Ken Blanchard Companies.

“We have to look at leadership as a two-sided coin,” says Fowler. “Some people in organizations don’t realize that the quality of their work experience depends on their being a good follower. They don’t know how to manage up—to help their leaders give them what they need to get their work done.

One of the essential parts of being a good leader is not only sharing in the highs of the business, but also managing the lows.

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Getting smart people into your company is hard enough. Turning them all into great collaborators and risk-takers is even harder. Even on the most high-performing teams, coworkers don’t just openly share feedback and challenge each others’ ideas all on their own–managers need to create a culture that encourages this. And that usually requires building your team’s collective emotional intelligence. Here are a few straightforward (and entirely low-tech ways) to get started.

5 Simple Ways to Be a Better Boss | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Of the 28.8 million businesses in the U.S., about 80 percent, or 23 million, have no employees. The owners have to worry about their business and that’s it. There’s no element of personnel management involved. However, many entrepreneurs -- the remaining 5.8 million -- have to manage people as well. In fact, managing people is one of the top five challenges cited by small business owners. Below are five things entrepreneurs can do to be a better “boss” and manage their employees. These pieces of advice are based on mistakes that I’ve personally made in the past. And I’ve made every mistake in the book.

Why most CEOs lack emotional intelligence

Why most CEOs lack emotional intelligence | New Leadership | Scoop.it
As I looked into Igor’s face, it was imperative that I accurately interpret his reaction to my words. Emotional intelligence is not taught at the FBI Academy, but it was essential for me to understand the difference between anxiety and sadness when interviewing people like Igor. I needed to know whether I could trust him to help me in my investigation. You may never need to interview an individual whom you suspect of being a foreign spy. It is possible, however, that you will need to impress a new client or calm down an frustrated customer.

7 Indicators Your Team Is Dysfunctional | Ron Edmondson | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Chances are, if you’ve served on very many teams, you’ve served on one which is dysfunctional. It appears to me we have many to choose from in the organizational world. There are no perfect teams. We are all dysfunctional at some level and during some seasons.

In case you’re wondering- my definition of a dysfunctional team – in simple terms – is one which cannot operate at peak efficiency and performance, because it is impacted by too many negative characteristics. There’s more going wrong than right more days than not.

Running a large recruitment firm for over a decade I certainly dealt with my fair share of conflict. Managing a diverse workforce and within the sales industry can lead to disagreements.  Most of us deal with it negatively but with the right training you can look at conflict as an opportunity. Nice article that goes into quite a bit of detail on conflict handling.  For businesses looking at handling conflict more successfully then please reach out I have run a training workshop just on this - geared towards recruitment businesses. Have a good day.

Don't let team drift run your team aground 

Don't let team drift run your team aground  | New Leadership | Scoop.it

You might be suffering from team drift and not know it. We’ve all heard stories of individuals who wake up one morning and wonder how they had drifted so far from their original hopes and dreams. The same thing can happen to teams.  


One of the most common complaints I hear from managers is, “I want to revitalize our team. We used to be a great team, but we’ve lost energy and focus.” 


These teams are suffering from what I call team drift – where a once high-performing team gradually loses its focus and capabilities without anyone noticing what’s happening. 


This is different from a sudden change that derails a team. Team drift is caused by a series of small things, each insignificant on its own, but which have a cumulative impact. Because it happens so slowly, it’s often not noticed until it’s too late. 


Team drift can occur for a variety of reasons.

The reality is leadership defines culture. People look to the leadership for their role models, for guides on how to behave. This goes for everything accountability, punctuality, sexual discrimination, etc., etc., if the boss practices these then the rest of the team will feel comfortable to follow suit. The leader sets the tone for whats acceptable. This is true for both positive traits as well as the negative traits mentioned above.

Empathy, Self-Reflection: The 'Soft-Skills' of Today's Leaders

Empathy, Self-Reflection: The 'Soft-Skills' of Today's Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

"The world is dramatically reshaped and operates differently. We have gone from an industrial economy where we hired hands, to a knowledge economy where we hired heads, to a human economy where we hire hearts. When machines can out process, outperform and even outthink us, it is the things that machines can not do, the things that come from the heart, that are uniquely valuable and can never be automated or commoditized.” ~ Dov Seidman

So yes, artificial intelligence has everybody trying to figure out this new dynamic, but as the statement attests, some of our roles will always be immune to this new ground-breaking technology. Leaders today should realize that great leaders are the ones that exhibit a skill set that is not replicable. To put this more succinctly, they lead from the heart.
