To Become a Leader, Think Beyond Your Role

To Become a Leader, Think Beyond Your Role | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Is there a time to think like an owner? Owners consider the broader needs of the business.

donhornsby's curator insight, Today, 9:30 AM

(From the article): The point is that the process of searching for conviction can be very challenging. The contextual factors and considerations are changing all the time; competitors take significant actions; products get commoditized, and so on. In addition, different people looking at the same situation may come to different points of view about what should be done. To cope with all these factors, leaders need to perform analysis, seek advice and input from others, debate alternatives, and generally ruminate. Much of the time, this process may feel like a grind.

 

While you’re going through this grind, you don’t always need to know exactly what to do; you don’t always need to have the answers. However, as a leader, you do need to be constantly striving to get to a level of conviction on key issues. How do you do this? You and your team need to focus your efforts on taking the necessary steps that will help get you to a sound judgment.

With practice, you will learn to understand yourself better and increasingly learn what conviction feels like. As you search for it, you will get better at gearing your efforts to work in a way that will help you get to that feeling. Leaders don’t look for excuses for why they can’t act like an owner. Instead, they embrace the challenge of ownership and encourage their teams to do the same.

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
The toughest part of leadership is learning when to speak up, and when you to delegate to someone else.

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.

donhornsby's curator insight, Today, 9:41 AM

(From the article): To increase your chances of resonating, ask, "Is this the appropriate time to deliver this idea? Is there anything already being discussed that I can connect my own idea to in order to give it context?"


Your voice is your single greatest possession as a leader. It's what allows you to mobilize and direct your team, and ultimately it's how you build a body of work you can be proud of. If your work matters to you, make the effort to cultivate a voice that resonates, and you’ll find your influence multiplying in ways you never expected.
