5 Ways Social Learning Communities Transform Culture and Leadership - Forbes

5 Ways Social Learning Communities Transform Culture and Leadership - Forbes | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Community, more than any other factor, will transform the role of leaders and influence the development of workplace culture. The power of online learning communities is more visible in lean-running start-ups where skills must shift quickly, but I think their effect will be more profound in established companies on a global scale.

"Online learning social communities exist which cater to all learning styles, all skill sets and personalities, native abilities and educational needs.

 

Available to employees on-demand as well as via mobile devices and tablets, online learning communities remove barriers dear to the hearts of brick-and-mortar universities and companies."

3 Personalities That Help Teams Shine

3 Personalities That Help Teams Shine | New Leadership | Scoop.it

There’s something inherently powerful about a group of individuals working together to accomplish a common goal. Business is no different.


Teams are at the core of how business gets done. As the manager of a team of professionals, there are a lot of questions I constantly ask myself. How do I get the most out of my team? How do I help them work together more effectively to be more productive? How do I challenge them to develop, both personally and professionally?

Good leaders need to be able to vary their leadership style and move between the styles mentioned here in response to the prevailing situation. These styles used in combination should enable a far more effective leadership that delivers tangible improvements in team performance, but relies upon the judgement of the leader in selecting the most appropriate style.

Understanding Servant Leadership

Understanding Servant Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The 21st century has brought much in the way of turmoil and change to the world of business. As a consequence, ways of doing business that were once universally accepted now seem outdated and inflexible in an age where knowledge drives economies and socially responsible corporate attitudes influence stakeholders and shareholders alike.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, November 25, 3:13 PM

Companies adopting servant leadership within their organisational culture give a lot of attention to developing environments and support structures that foster high levels of employee satisfaction. In addition, the servant leader works toward building a learning organisation where individuals are encouraged to grow and be of unique value.

Why Belonging Is Key in Today’s Workplace

Why Belonging Is Key in Today’s Workplace | New Leadership | Scoop.it

For our ancestors, belonging to a group that shared the workload and helped protect each other was essential for survival. As a result our brains are hard-wired to motivate us toward connection and belonging. In fact, recent research in neuroscience has indicated that social needs are managed using the same neural networks as used for primary survival needs such as food and water. (Lieberman, Eisenberger, 2008) Belonging can literally feel like a life or death matter.

When You Give Your Team a Goal, Make It a Range

When You Give Your Team a Goal, Make It a Range | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Goals! Managers love setting them. Employees (hopefully) want to achieve them. And for good reason. A well-constructed and thoughtfully considered goal can be extremely motivating and rewarding. It’s no surprise, then, that they are a staple of any modern day manager’s motivational toolkit. Want to focus your organization on winning new business? Then set the sales team a goal for the number of outbound calls made, business development meetings arranged, and trade show contacts followed up on. Need to increase your company’s customer satisfaction ratings? Then set a target for the time it takes associates to answer calls and for supervisors to resolve complaints, and tally the number of testimonials gained from delighted customers… you get the idea.

13 Scary Statistics on Employee Engagement

13 Scary Statistics on Employee Engagement | New Leadership | Scoop.it
The infographic that we put together has some pretty shocking statistics in it, but there are a few common themes. Employees feel overworked, overwhelmed, and they don’t like what they do. Companies are noticing it, with 75% of them saying they can’t attract the right talent, and 83% of them feeling that their employer brand isn’t compelling. Companies that want to fix this need to be smart, and patient. This doesn’t happen overnight, but like I mentioned, it’s easy to do. Being patient might be the hardest thing for companies, and I understand how frustrating it can be not to see results right away, but it’s important that you invest in this, because the ROI of employee engagement is huge.

Here are 4 simple (and free) things you can do to get that passion back into employees. These are all based on research from Deloitte.

What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation

What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Despite the popularity of Maslow’s Hierarchy, there is not much recent data to support it. Contemporary science — specifically Dr. Edward Deci, hundreds of Self-Determination Theory researchers, and thousands of studies — instead points to three universal psychological needs. If you really want to advantage of this new science – rather than focusing on a pyramid of needs – you should focus on: autonomy, relatedness, and competence.

The Pioneers's curator insight, November 27, 7:50 AM

Our basic physical needs do not necessarily bear more weight when it comes to motivation than our psychological ones. What we really need is to feel in control of our own lives, connected with other people and the effects of our actions and like we're getting better at stuff.

Steve Bax's curator insight, November 27, 10:58 AM

The psychology of risk management in business

The psychology of risk management in business | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Psychologically, male and female leaders are programmed differently when it comes to risk-taking in business, but both are taking more calculated risks in 2014 following the battering the UK took in the last recession. Taking risks comes with its pros and cons – it will either help you gain or lose something of value. Whether it be to sell a million pounds worth of shares or something as simple as crossing the road, most of us have personalities within ourselves that can categorise us as risk-avoiders or risk takers in business.

This goes to show how some simple base assumptions, when incorrect can be at the root of a lot of problems. The answer to the question, "what skills, behaviours and attitudes do leaders need, in order for this organization to succeed in the future?" could be very different to the question, "what skills, behaviours and attitudes do leaders need, in order for this organization to succeed now?"

Why Middle Managers Are So Unhappy

Why Middle Managers Are So Unhappy | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Who are the unhappiest among your workers? And what’s driving them crazy? They may not be who you think they are. They aren’t who we would have thought.

To find out, we gathered data from the most unengaged and uncommitted employees from more than 320,000 employees in a variety of organizations. We then identified those employees whose engagement and commitment scores were in the bottom 5% and compared the responses of these 15,729 unhappy souls to the rest.

You might think these would be the people with poor performance ratings or the ones in over their heads – people with inadequate training, education, or experience for the job. Or perhaps they’re the ones who haven’t been on the job long enough to decide they’re a bad fit and move elsewhere.

But when we examined the demographic characteristics of these employees, we found instead that they could best be described as those “stuck in the middle of everything.”

It is hard to wear so many hats simultaneously. The wise leader will develop them one at a time and add them to his or her toolbox.  In this way more will be accomplished in a shorter period of time than if we tried to do it all at the same time.  It is better to be excellent at several things acquired over time than to be mediocre at several things tried simultaneously...

When was the last time you took a positive decision to take a good look at your organisation?  We’re not talking here about changing a job title in response to the latest government missive on pay or restructuring a department in the light of technology developments.  Changes of that nature go on all the time in organisations but they are reactive rather than creative.  What we are thinking of here is deliberately taking time out to have a good hard look at the organisation and its culture.
