How to stop micromanaging your team | New Leadership | Scoop.it
You're across every detail of the project, insist on being cc'ed on every email and are rarely satisfied with your team's work. If that's you, then you're a micromanger. But you have to stop, because the test of your leadership is how well your team does when you're not there.

Rising to the Occasion

Rising to the Occasion | New Leadership | Scoop.it
If I accept you as you are, I will make you worse; however, if I treat you as though you are what you are capable of becoming, I help you become that.” ~Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

We are all a product of our environment to some degree. What people believe of us and how we are treated affects whom we become. I was very fortunate early in my career to experience this principle first hand.

Leadership is One Big Sandbox

Leadership is One Big Sandbox | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Respect in the workplace comes in many forms. Little demonstrations of respect here and there, all of them seemingly small and unnoticed, eventually add up to something significant. You contribute to a respectful workplace every day, and then all of the sudden others start to notice, start to contribute in their own way, and eventually you step back and look. And what you see is that all those seemingly little things now add up to some big, noticeable things that create a better work environment for everyone.

How Leaders Open Up The Minds Of Their Teams

How Leaders Open Up The Minds Of Their Teams | New Leadership | Scoop.it

To be creative in workplaces requires that leaders create a culture of ‘play.’ Then why is ‘play’ such dirty word in many workplaces?

It seems this is mainly because we generally believe that work is ‘serious’ and play is ‘frivolous.’ It seems the frivolous nature of play is not ‘serious’ enough to sit comfortably alongside ‘proper’ business skills and practises that have been carefully designed and proven to be robust, measurable and therefore considered tangible business attributes. Such attainments warrant certificates and awards that often globally demonstrate ‘competence‘ at a level that can be easily recognized and rewarded in the world of work.
