Closing The Gap … Between Leaders And Followers

Closing The Gap … Between Leaders And Followers | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Once upon a time, long, long ago, leaders ruled the earth. The world was filled with autocracies – tribes, groups, and, finally, nation states – not democracies, in which it was presumed that leaders led and the rest followed.

Leading, then, used to be quite simple. Not that leaders in times past did not face their own particular challenges – they did, including challenges from others hell bent on overthrowing them. What they did not generally need to trouble themselves with, however, were the great unwashed, the masses, their followers.

Why Money Is the Worst Way to Motivate Employees

Why Money Is the Worst Way to Motivate Employees | New Leadership | Scoop.it

One of the most tried-and-true techniques for motivating employees turns out to often have the opposite effect. Bosses have long offered workers financial bonuses for doing better work. This system of incentivizing workers worked beautifully when only mechanical skills are required, but new studies suggest it’s a whole different story when the work involves thought. It turns out we’re not as manipulatable as some bosses may think we are.

3 Situations Where Leaders Should Keep Their Mouths Shut

3 Situations Where Leaders Should Keep Their Mouths Shut | New Leadership | Scoop.it

donhornsby's curator insight, September 2, 9:53 AM

There is a time to speak. And there is a time to be silent. Here are three great suggestions of when you need to keep your mouth shut.

 

 

(From the article): If you don't know the answer to a question, don't pretend like you do. This has been one of the toughest things for me to remember in my own startup. Sometimes, the right answer is saying you don't know and delegating to another team member. In a startup, these instances should be happening all the time to you.

 

This is why investors look at the team so closely before investing. When you are lost, do you have the resources on your team to help you get to the right answer? If the answer is no, you need to identify the missing person to get you the right answer. But if you always try to answer everything yourself, you'll might not be able to even figure out what the problem is.

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.
