Employee Engagement: How Mobile Tech Can Save the Day

Employee Engagement: How Mobile Tech Can Save the Day | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Today’s approach to employee engagement is dead, and it’s been dead for a long time.

Research shows only about 25 to 35 percent of employees across the U.S. are engaged in their work — this has gone unchanged for years. So why track something that’s more a law of nature than a key performance indicator?

Employee engagement is like a heart rate. The average pulse of the world population is barely changing, but it’s hugely important to know your own personal resting pulse so you can see if everything is in order.

The same is true for employee engagement. It doesn’t matter that the majority of the workforce is disengaged — especially because it’s been that way for decades. The only relevant factor for your business is the engagement levels of your own people.

Say "thank you" to mistakes

Say "thank you" to mistakes | New Leadership | Scoop.it

As a leader, what’s your first reaction when someone comes to you and tells you they made a mistake? While you may or may not verbalize your thoughts, you may be thinking to yourself:


Oh crap!
Seriously?!
What the hell were you thinking?!
How could you be so stupid?!
OMG, how are we going to clean up this mess?


These are our natural, normal reactions when we hear about mistakes. We are all hard-wired to see mistakes in a negative way. Fight or flight. Mistakes are bad, mistakes are a result of incompetence, mistakes should be avoided, mistakes need to be punished, and too many mistakes will lead to failure and getting fired.

5 Overlooked Habits of Great Leaders

5 Overlooked Habits of Great Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Most leaders want to be great at what they do, but far too many fall short. Why is that? What do great leaders have that not-so-great ones don’t?

There are many ingredients that go into the leadership mix: organizational skills, effective communication, and character traits like courage, confidence and clarity. But while each of these ingredients is important for great leadership, none are the starting point. For leaders to be truly great, they must start with personal habits—because the right personal habits act like a mixing bowl for enhancing skills and character traits. 

 Here are five personal habits that can greatly enhance the flavor of your leadership. What makes this list different than others is that many of them habits are often overlooked:

donhornsby's curator insight, February 4, 11:50 AM

(From the article): When leaders empower people through a higher purpose, they don’t have to “create buy-in” or use other marketing tactics to win over their followers. Leaders who do find themselves acting something like a pusher — resorting to perks, tit-for-tats, and bonuses — might want to ask themselves if they’re missing some larger point. A leader isn’t a salesman. When Steve Jobs asked John Sculley his famous question, “Do you really want to spend your life selling sugared water, or do you want a chance to change the world?” he was making just such a distinction. Selling sugared water might make you a few bucks — but only at the cost of doing something that matters. The purpose of a leader is to create a purpose.


And yet although that sounds very inspiring, a leader’s job still is not to give inspiring speeches. A leader isn’t an orator who claps everyone on the back once in a while when they’ve sunk into a torpor. The job of a leader is indeed to inspire people — but in the truer sense of the word: from the Latin inspirare, inspire, to breathe or blow into. Leaders breathe life into the organizations they lead, into the people they’re responsible for. They breathe life into possibilities. They make it more possible for the rest of us to dare, imagine, create, and build. They do not merely encourage us to do so; theirs is the hard work of crafting all the incentives, processes, systems, and roles that actually empower us to do so.

 

Leadership is in an uncertain place. We long desperately for better leaders. But perhaps it is precisely our longing that’s the problem. We’re waiting for a rescue at the cost of our own redemption.

Because it’s easier to complain about the leaders we have than to try to do better. After all, it’s a pretty hard job.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 4, 12:22 PM

Leadership and management, although both vital, are not the same, but are often conflated. A person who can micro-manage and check off lists like many educational managers can think they are leading. They are managing and not doing that well. Living does not involve a fixed script and leading in the midst of complexity requires qualities many do not have or are not allowed to use.

(From the article): Leaders with conviction create an environment of certainty for everyone. When a leader is absolutely convinced that he’s chosen the best course of action, everyone who follows him unconsciously absorbs this belief and the accompanying emotional state. Mirror neurons are responsible for this involuntary response. They mirror the emotional states of other people—especially those we look to for guidance. This ensures that leaders with conviction put us at ease.

Turning your strategy into reality: three challenges to overcome

Turning your strategy into reality: three challenges to overcome | New Leadership | Scoop.it
“Strategy” is one of the most ubiquitous words in the world of corporate management. Countless meetings, research, consulting hours and presentations go into in drafting and refining strategic documents. Yet many organisations falter or even fail when it comes to the next step – executing these strategies.

You’ll find far more books and articles on strategy planning and development than on execution. Strategy is sexy. Execution, on the other hand, is a complex chain of decisions and activities happening in real time across an entire organisation. There are innumerable ways for things to go awry when turning strategies into realities, but these three major challenges seem most prevalent:

Management habits are foundational to great leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Good management habits are the foundation of great leadership. They grow at the intersection of knowledge, skills and desire. Leaders are passionate about acquiring the knowledge available and marshaling the skills needed to get the job done right.
It is work, hard work to cultivate those habits but they pay off by supporting your goals and by building the confidence to anticipate and look forward to meeting new challenges to the success of an enterprise.
