The Leadership Gap provides the antidote for leading on autopilot. Daskal provides the insight into our behaviors and beliefs that can if not managed properly can derail even the most talented and successful leaders. Confronting and avoiding our leadership gaps is the key to attaining long-term leadership success.

donhornsby's curator insight, June 20, 7:47 AM
As a visionary leader, you need to be your organization’s oracle, driving its performance down a pioneering path into the future. To be a positive, transformational leader you need a clear vision if your organization is going to survive and thrive. But you and the vision are indistinguishable. Without a clear vision, you won’t last. And without a visionary leader, neither will the vision.

How to Handle Underperformers on a Team You Inherit

How to Handle Underperformers on a Team You Inherit | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Recently I was talking with a new manager about the team she had inherited. While she thought that most of the team members were doing a good job, she was concerned that one or two people were not pulling their weight. She wasn’t sure what to do about them. She was worried that if she fired these people, or even put them on notice, it would sink morale and others would worry about losing their jobs, too. She also didn’t want to come across as mean and insensitive so early on, because she wanted her team to like her. But she knew that if she didn’t do something, the team might not hit its goals.

These concerns probably sound familiar to any new manager. Suddenly, instead of focusing only on your own performance, you have to make sure that other people are performing. Instead of building relationships with one or two coworkers, now you have to think about how you relate to the whole team. It’s not an easy transition. In order to manage it successfully, there are two principles you should keep in mind.

In business, success comes from ensuring that as your business grows, it doesn't collapse because it was not set up to be able to scale. Businesses that experience quick growth, when they are not ready for it, are the businesses most likely to fall by the roadside. This article provides some good ideas on how to prepare your business so that it can scale and grow successfully.

Do business leaders really need empathy?

Do business leaders really need empathy? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Putting yourself in someone else's shoes can leave you vulnerable to bias.But there’s actually something of a debate on about this. While the likes of Barack Obama speak of an ‘empathy deficit’ that needs to be resolved, and ITV chairman Peter Bazalgette writes of its virtues in his book The Empathy Instinct: How to Create a More Civil Society, others are not convinced.Yale psychologist Paul Bloom, for instance, calls empathy a terrible moral guide in his book Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion. For him:‘Empathy is biased, pushing us in the direction of parochialism and racism. It is short-sighted, motivating actions that might make things better in the short term but lead to tragic results in the future. It is innumerate, favouring the one over the many. It can spark violence; our empathy for those close to us is a powerful force for war and atrocity towards others. It is corrosive of personal relationships; it exhausts the spirit and can diminish the force of kindness and love.’

To Be a Strong Leader, There Are 6 Things You Must Give Your People (Most Rarely Do)

The impact of work cultures on the bottom line is a hot business topic. More execs and HR leaders are connecting the dots on how an ecosystem of commonly held values, beliefs, and positive work behaviors drives engagement, innovation, and high performance.

Yet culture doesn't just happen. It takes visionary, servant leadership at the top creating the environment for intrinsically motivated employees to release discretionary effort.

These are selfless leaders who shine the spotlight on others instead of themselves. They have one thing in mind: How do I empower my tribe to reach their potential? You'll find that they are givers--in a personal, leadership, and organizational sense.

As leaders we can sometimes think we are too busy to consider the organisational health of the company as we can be consumed with bottom line results. This article reminds us all that commonly held beliefs, strong values and positive work behaviours do drive engagement and ultimately stronger results. If you like this article then do read The Advantage by Patrick Lencioni who focuses solely on the benefits of building a cohesive leadership team who cited "The single greatest advantage any company can achieve is organisational health". Happy Reading and Happy Holidays.

donhornsby's curator insight, June 6, 12:30 PM
Changing silos into alliances does not occur suddenly. The civil rights movement lasted decades. And, it was not a smooth transformation from a compilation of well-coordinated initiatives. It was a collection of quick wins from many isolated efforts. Great bridge building leaders are patient. But, like the leaders of the civil rights movement, they seize small opportunities to move toward a clear and present goal that never escapes their sights. They know that bridge building can involve two steps forward and one step back. Yet, like Rosa Parks, it begins with the courage and commitment to take the first step.

What to Do When You Inherit a Team That Isn’t Working Hard Enough

What to Do When You Inherit a Team That Isn’t Working Hard Enough | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Paula is a new manager. That’s the good news.

The bad news is that she was handed a leaky bag. The branch she will now manage has some long-standing norms she sees as unproductive and possibly unethical. Staff members routinely spend working hours on personal projects. Employees neglect customers to take extended lunch breaks. In addition, Paula’s predecessor routinely rated everyone a “5” on a five-point scale, but she was struggling to find a single “5” in the entire group.

As the individual and group performance picture became clear to Paula, she began to pine for the simplicity of her life as an individual contributor.

There are many ways for managers to incorporate a coaching style to help people develop more competence and confidence.

Practicing coach-like behaviors in your conversations creates a learning environment not only for those you coach, but for you as well.

But most organizations only focus on one half of that partnering equation, says Susan Fowler, a senior consulting partner with The Ken Blanchard Companies.
