How leaders energise their teams

How leaders energise their teams | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In today’s hyper-competitive, complex and fast-changing environment, leaders can’t be super-heroes or all-rounders. Rather, they need to play their unique strengths and be workplace energisers, unlocking the energy and ideas of others to deliver unique and sustainable value to their customers/stakeholders.

What leaders can learn from endurance athletes

What leaders can learn from endurance athletes | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Every​ ​leader​ ​wants​ ​to​ ​grow​ ​their​ ​business,​ ​but​ ​many​ ​aren’t​ ​sure​ ​how​ ​to​ ​do​ ​it. How​ ​do you​ ​deliver​ ​the​ ​performance​ ​you​ ​need​ ​short-term​ ​while​ ​transforming​ ​the​ ​business​ ​for the​ ​long-term​? ​And​ ​how​ ​do​ ​you​ ​do​ ​it​ ​in​ ​a​ ​way​ ​that​ ​doesn’t​ ​kill​ ​everybody​ ​around​ ​you?
The answer is to become a “growth leader,” a term I’ve coined to describe leaders who systematically increase their capacity for profitable growth while at the same time driving execution of the current business. Today, growth​ ​leaders​ ​are​ ​finding​ ​the​ ​answers​ ​in​ ​an​ ​unlikely​ ​place -- endurance​ ​training.

Critical to your team's culture: Equal air time

Critical to your team's culture: Equal air time | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In researching what makes teams successful, Google’s “Project Aristotle” found that psychological safety was key. 


A group norm that supports psychological safety is “equality in distribution of conversational turn-taking” -- meaning, everyone has more or less equal air-time by the end of the day. “If only one person or a small group spoke all the time, the collective intelligence declined.” 


As the leader or manager of your team, how can you facilitate this conversational equality?

7 Common Leadership Mistakes 

7 Common Leadership Mistakes  | New Leadership | Scoop.it

There are also umpteen posts out there extolling the virtues of good leaders, what leadership skills are, and how to instill them.
But, leaders are also people. They are prone to make mistakes. When a leader makes a mistake, it automatically gets magnified tenfold.
There are people who will scrutinize every move and, as a leader, your team will look up to you. That is a huge responsibility in itself.
Great leaders are not made by mimicking other leaders. Of course, you can take inspiration from them. But remember, they were in different situations than you. Employing their solutions and methods may not go well with the problem at hand.
Being a good leader is a challenge in itself. It is, thus, better to be aware of the potential mistakes one can make while leading people.
Here are are 7 mistakes leaders commonly make:

What should modern leadership development look like?

What should modern leadership development look like? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

If there was a way to design leadership development that was guaranteed to work I would describe it here. Honest. But there isn’t. And the reason is not only that your business is unique. It is in many ways but, frankly, the challenges you’re facing and the leadership behaviours you’re trying to change aren’t unique to you.

Most companies I work with are suffering the same problems to a greater or lesser degree.

The real reason I can’t give you a single right answer is because it doesn’t work like that.

Leadership development isn’t a one hit wonder. It’s a lifelong process of evolution. And for HR and L&D the job is to provide opportunities for leaders or those on the journey to leadership (which is more accurate) to be able to grow and learn as they go.

How Leaders Can Invest in the Power of Differences

How Leaders Can Invest in the Power of Differences | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In a world in which we expect the neighborhood ice cream shop to offer up at least 31 flavors, why do we insist on “fixing” people so their point of view matches one flavor—ours?

Sometimes it’s maddening to be in a conversation with a fiercely-opinionated person whose thoughts are 180 degrees from mine. As we talk, I keep thinking about how narrow-minded the person is and how I could help them see the light if they’d only let me.

Differences make a difference. Diversity is essential in organizations. We exist in what Hannah Arendt described as plurality and Biesta calls radical contingency. This is essential in teaching to make teaching relational rather than technical fixes.
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 14, 11:34 AM
I do not conflate teaching and leading, but they overlap in many ways. Differences make a difference when one is leading and when one is teaching. Each person we lead and teach brings a unique story to the organization and classroom. What we tend to do is lapse into managing these differences, instead of being informed by them and learning how to lead and teach in new and meaningful ways.

4 Types of Leaders Who Aren’t Ready for Coaching | New Leadership | Scoop.it

All over the world, leaders are using coaching to gain a competitive edge. But does coaching solve every problem one might encounter in the workplace?

“No. It’s not a panacea,” says coaching expert Patricia Overland in an article for Chief Learning Officer. “Determining when coaching is a good investment can be challenging.”

Overland shares a couple of examples from her experience when a leader may not be ready to learn and apply coaching skills. Overland explains that offering coaching without addressing these underlying beliefs is usually a recipe for failure.

Humility helps you to demonstrate your intention of working with the other party, rather than against them, to create a mutually beneficial relationship. It is your humility that will allow the other party to “win” the argument as they concentrate on the climate and maximising the total value of the deal from their perspective.

A Bottom-Up Approach to Leadership that Works

A Bottom-Up Approach to Leadership that Works | New Leadership | Scoop.it

“If your people don’t reach their full potential, neither will your organization,” says Susan Fowler, a senior consulting partner with The Ken Blanchard Companies. “The bottom line depends on the front line.”

“The research shows that the front line people are the ones who are essential to making your initiatives work—whether it’s implementing a change or a customer service program. You have to depend on those self leaders to make it happen.”

In Fowler’s experience, when L&D professionals equip individual contributors with the mindset and skillset of self leadership, they build a healthy and empowered workforce that is productive, innovative, and committed to getting results for their organizations.

Companies that claim to be “transforming” seem to be everywhere. But when you look more deeply into whether those organizations are truly redefining what they are and what they do, stories of successful change efforts are exceptionally rare. In a study of S&P 500 and Global 500 firms, our team found that those leading the most successful transformations, creating new offerings and business models to push into new growth markets, share common characteristics and strategies. Before describing those, let’s look at how we identified the exceptional firms that rose to the top of our ranking, a group we call the Transformation 10.
