From the post: 

Hope, and the ability to generate it, is a big part of what we do as leaders. But the truth is, at some point, we must deliver. Hope without progress is unsustainable. It actually fades rather quickly.

The good news for us as leaders is we are more than dealers in hope; we create the future. That’s what ultimately keeps hope alive!

There is a lot of servant-leadership in the article. The interesting thing about competence is it shares a common root with compete rather than collaborate. Collaborate has negative implications based on its etymology. Competing is striving together which takes competency.

Your Business Doesn’t Always Need to Change

Your Business Doesn’t Always Need to Change | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Evolve or die. If it ain’t broke, break it. If you don’t like change, you are going to like obsolescence even less.

 

By now, the idea that organizations must adapt in order to maintain both relevance and market share in a rapidly changing world is so ingrained that it’s been reduced to pithy sayings. And there are many organizations — from Blockbuster to Kodak, print-only newspapers to pay-phone makers — that no doubt wish they’d followed the advice.

 

But is constant adaptation always the best policy? Research indicates it isn’t.

Leadership Lesson: Keeping Strategic Focus In A Changing Environment

Leadership Lesson: Keeping Strategic Focus In A Changing Environment | New Leadership | Scoop.it
It is easy to say “we are customer focused” and overlook subtle changes in consumer demand, or to justify cost cutting as a rational business maneuver in a tough market environment. But if these measures don’t accomplish your strategic vision or sync with the reality of your customer, there is little hope for leading the market.

Evolutions in Leadership

Evolutions in Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

As the structure of our society has changed, as social dynamics have moved away from authoritarian models towards more socially collaborative ones, backed up by the speed, breadth and fluidity of communications, so the nature of leadership has changed too


No longer purely authoritarian (although often needing to include elements of this), there is a more constructivist dimension: leadership created in the moment through consensus of the community. Leadership of it’s time: a time when communities enable us to be more effective, to create ever stronger meaning and share it ever more widely.

 

Yesterdays leaders may have been about bluster and orders, today’s are about curation, sharing, social capital and trust. Today’s successful leaders gain support through their communities and provide a light touch of leadership on decisions that are co-ownedthroughout the community.

Traits of a Motivated Leader

Traits of a Motivated Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it
If there is one trait that virtually all effective leaders have, it is motivation – a variety of self-management whereby we mobilize our positive emotions to drive us toward our goals. Motivated leaders are driven to achieve beyond expectations – their own and everyone else’s. The key word here is achieve.

You should not give up on your essential beliefs and convictions to get along and to work well with your line manager. If your boss is not listening to you, not being vocally self-critical herself, and not willing to also adjust from her side and to respect your opinion and needs, then there exist fundamental miss-alignments between the two of you.

From Start-Up to Scaling Up

From Start-Up to Scaling Up | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Like most successful entrepreneurs, Parikshat Laxminarayan started off his entrepreneurial journey by noticing a gap that he knew could be filled by anyone determined enough to throw down some cash and chase the dream. During his MBA at INSEAD, he travelled to his native India with several classmates and while there, one of them observed that what he’d experienced in India was vastly different to what he’d expected. The classmate experienced a clean, green and vibrant country; which broke his stereotype of India as hot, poor and dry – which of course is true of many parts of the country. Laxminarayan spotted a business opportunity in that observation!
