The Secret Ingredient of Brilliant Leaders and Managers

The Secret Ingredient of Brilliant Leaders and Managers | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I have only come across a handful of brilliant leaders and managers in my working career.

 

The ingredient these people shared was, they were intrinsically drawn to “doing the right thing”. The “right thing” for these leaders and managers wasn’t always popular. The act of choosing for them was sometimes personally agonising, but they still made those decisions.

 

When questioned, many leaders and managers know what “doing the right thing” is, but quite often,  mysteriously,  they just don’t make that decision.  Thus, opportunities are lost, credibility is questioned and results are lower than expected.

(From the Article): When leaders and managers don’t understand how to manage difference whether it is psychological, cultural, or an equality issue, or are more concerned about speedy outcomes at the expense of the people they employ, then there is a danger unhelpful decisions will be made.

4 Stories Great Leaders Tell To Engage Their People | New Leadership | Scoop.it
German novelist and playwright Gustav Freytag wanted to understand how storytelling impacted the human psyche. He wondered, “What makes a story so engaging that it changes a person’s behavior?” After studying William Shakespeare’s work, Freytag designed a map of storytelling—a key that explained why the man considered ‘the greatest writer [...]

The smartest teams were distinguished by three characteristics:

1) members contributed more equally

2) members were better able to read complex emotional states

3) women outperformed men

 

Future studies replicated the results, regardless for mode of interaction. 

 

Contemplative Dialogue can easily lead teams/families/communities to becoming "smart teams" and rediscover one another and our great human capacities.

How Do You Get People to Work Harder? Just Turn Them Loose

How Do You Get People to Work Harder? Just Turn Them Loose | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Here’s a fundamental question: How do you get people to work? Answering fundamentally, you form a contract with them consisting of a set amount of compensation and benefits in return for an equally set amount of work.

 

Less fundamental and more important (or at least more interesting) is this question – How do you get people to work harder on what matters most to you?

donhornsby's curator insight, January 16, 8:20 AM

(From the article): As a leader, you do hold unique responsibility for ensuring there are opportunities for such exposure, for those on your team to work closely with others. But then, turn your people loose. Let them explore ways they can contribute differently within their own team and across departments or groups.

 

That’s how you break down silos, but it’s also how you give people the three hallmarks of engagement espoused by Dan Pink in Drive – autonomy, mastery, and purpose.

donhornsby's curator insight, January 14, 2:44 PM

(From the article):  Trust is a very evocative word in the business world. It means different things to different people, depending on their gender, ethnicity, culture, background and geography.  Corporate behaviour is definitely under the microscope with widespread perception of a disconnect between corporate behaviour and ethical conduct.  In this climate, it would be very easy to jump to measurement and greater legal requirements.  Whilst issues such as compliance are a vital aspect of good governance, recent research published by Roger Steare and colleagues indicates a strong relationship between ethical leadership and performance as well as ethics being key to employee engagement. 


Clearly, there is a need to go back to basics to define what ethical behaviour means both for the individual and the organisation.  Those organisations that have travelled this route have benefited from creating a ‘speak-up’ culture; confidence in the market as well as commitment from employees who buy-into the idea that ‘good thinking = good business’.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, January 16, 9:01 AM

Good leadership is a critical part of organizational health but a big, unresolved issue is what sort of leadership behavior organizations should encourage to fare well in the future. Is leadership so contextual that it defies standard definitions or development approaches?


According to a McKinsey study four kinds of behavior account for 89 percent of leadership effectiveness.

In the absence of a definition of leadership Here's mine from  20+ years ago that still works for my clients - Leadership is the art of inspiring people to bring everything remarkable that they are (that one-of-a-kind that each of is) to everything they do. Leadership must operate in harmony with management. I define management as the practice of making it simple for people to bring everything remarkable that they are to everything we do.
