3 Rules for Experts Who Want More Influence

3 Rules for Experts Who Want More Influence | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In these days of social media chest-thumping, it seems like everyone is calling themselves an expert. This declaration is often in inverse proportion to how well-known the person is; back in the early days of my consulting career, I, too, clamored to label myself an “expert,” as though that would assuage potential clients who had never heard of me. Not so much.

Building High Performance Teams Takes More Than Talent

Building High Performance Teams Takes More Than Talent | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Sometimes, very talented people just aren’t a good fit for your organization, but more often, the problem lies in a leaders’ inability to harness or align their employees’ talent to the mission. Either of these situations can cause employees’ talent to atrophy — or, worse, give them a reason to move on to a more engaging position at another company. Your job, as a leader, is to recognize when talent isn’t being used to its fullest potential and correct the situation

Are you prepared for the future? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Our Global Leadership Forecast (GLF) is a truly global study of more than 13,000 business leaders and 1,500 HR executives. The GLF report is a fascinating study of leadership today and focuses on the experiences of leaders all around the world, and the implications.
It’s clear that, not only are leaders struggling with new skills such as using analytics, driving innovation, surviving in the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world and managing increasingly diverse teams, they are finding the fundamental requirements of leadership difficult.
These include delivering on the specific strategy of their CEOs, leading rather than managing, and effectively interacting with teams.

Can You Be A Success Managing Remotely? | New Leadership | Scoop.it
We talk a lot about remote teams or remote workers, but there’s not a lot of discussion about remote managers. There are a lot of moving parts to being a manager and most advice assumes managers are face-to-face with at least a portion of their workforce. But if that’s not the case, there are steps you can take to manage successfully.

Is Leadership Manipulation and is there a Science to it?

Is Leadership Manipulation and is there a Science to it? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

As the leaders of today, we enroll, we enlist and we try to inspire. And as the “matrixed” organization becomes more prevalent due to how it “saves money,” you no longer have your entire team within your division. You may find that the CEO is the only common leader and she DOES NOT want to hear that the kids are not playing nice in the sandbox. As a result, to succeed, you MUST enroll other people, in other divisions, in other geographies, maybe in other companies to want to help you succeed – often by committing time and resources to the marketing of your cause. This has become so prevalent today that the Corporate Executive Board has coined a new title in our modern age: the Network Leader who is proficient in both Individual Task Performance and Network Performance

What Kind Of Leadership Is Needed In Flat Hierarchies?

What Kind Of Leadership Is Needed In Flat Hierarchies? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Our shift from bureaucratic to distributed leadership took nearly a century. According to Deborah Ancona, a professor of management and organizational studies at MIT, companies in America circa 1920s were "super bureaucracies." Then, in the 1960s, people focused on interpersonal relationships and lots of discussions centered around trust and empathy. In the 1990s, it was all about organizations needing to undergo large-scale changes and vision. Finally, today’s workplace centers on what’s called variously eco-leadership, collaborative leadership, or distributed leadership.

"It’s all about your network," says Ancona, author of X-Teams: How to Build Teams That Lead, Innovate, and Succeed, as in who do you know outside and inside of your team. "If you understand the internal network in your company, you have a higher chance of moving ahead

5 Mistakes Leaders Make When Building Teams

5 Mistakes Leaders Make When Building Teams | New Leadership | Scoop.it

One of the most important tasks of any leader: build a solid team around the mission at hand.


This always sounds easier than it really is. Bringing diverse individuals – with different strengths, weaknesses, skillsets, and in most cases, their own goals and agendas – to work toward a common goal is not an easy job.


And yet sometimes the right team is in place, only to have the leader make mistakes that torpedo team dynamics. Teams become unproductive at best… and toxic at worst.


Learn to identify these leadership mistakes, take steps to avoid (or correct) them and improve the overall performance of your organization:

“LEADING CHANGE”….through dissonance!

“LEADING CHANGE”….through dissonance! | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. Loosely translated from the French this means “the more things change, the more they stay the same”. In the words of Machiavelli, “There’s nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in introducing a new order of things”. These quotations point out two basic and somewhat opposite concepts about change: No change is final….Change is difficult. As a leader leading change should expect resistance upfront, develop strategies to deal with it, and ALWAYS communicate, empower, communicate, empower….and repeat rinse!

Women in Leadership: Be Less Super, More Human

Women in Leadership: Be Less Super, More Human | New Leadership | Scoop.it
“Superhuman is not a compliment,” explained Linda Rottenberg, CEO of Endeavor, “because what it actually means is that you’re unrelatable.” And this is exactly the problem. When you try to hide who you really are because you don’t want to be perceived as “too feminine” or “too different,” what you actually do is distance yourself from people, which ultimately has a negative effect on your career.

(From the article): 

To make the process easier, here are some tips:

Don’t use phrases like “the boss wants it this way” or rely on hierarchical name dropping. While that may get things done in the short term, it can curtail discussion that’s core to building a meritocracy.Publicly recognize a great effort or contribution. It can be a simple thank-you e-mail in which you copy the whole team.Consider whether your influence comes from your position in the hierarchy (or access to privileged information), or whether it truly comes from respect that you have earned. If it is the former, start working on the latter.Proactively ask for feedback and ideas on a specific topic. You must respond to them all, but implement only the good ones. And don’t just take the best ideas and move on; take every opportunity to reinforce the spirit of meritocracy by giving credit where it’s due.Reward a high-performing member of your team with an interesting assignment, even if it is not in his or her usual area.

The Art and Science of LeadershipSwitch & Shift

The Art and Science of LeadershipSwitch & Shift | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Truly great leaders are both artists and scientists.


Leadership draws ideas from across the intellectual spectrum, and it forges them into something unique and its own. Unlike so many areas of thinking it can’t be neatly stuck away in a box labeled ‘art’ or ‘science’. There are acts of analysis and of empathy, of slow careful refinement and sudden intuitive leaps. There are times to measure what we already have and times to create something completely new.


Leadership is both art and science.
