3 Leadership Traits Your Employees Need to Exhibit When You Aren’t Around - Linked 2 Leadership

3 Leadership Traits Your Employees Need to Exhibit When You Aren’t Around - Linked 2 Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Whether you’re out of the office or your team members are out in the field, they must be able to step into leadership roles and make decisions that will result in positive customer outcomes.

And when something goes awry, your employees need to:

Be prepared to find solutions
Placate frustrated customers
And ultimately turn a potential disaster into a nonissue
This requires that each and every team member is properly prepared to lead with responsibility.

Cultivating a sense of personal responsibility among your team members isn’t just good for your company; it also helps your employees grow.

You're only ever as good as the people who hold the fort when you're not around. Set the right standards!

Joe Boutte's curator insight, Today, 8:08 AM

If your team doesn't know what to do when you aren't around, you've failed as a leader.  The world needs everyday leaders who are autonomous, but understand their leader's vision, intent, and expectations to create the output and outcomes required.

Leading CEOs say that pre-dawn starts make them more creative and productive. So could it work for you?

 

Next time you hit the snooze button at 7am, it’s worth remembering that Starbucks ceo Howard Schultz has already been up for two and a half hours. It’s reportedly the same for Robert Iger, head of the Walt Disney Company too – who’s up before the sun exercising, scanning the news and thinking about the day ahead.

7 Attributes of CEOs Who Get Social Media

7 Attributes of CEOs Who Get Social Media | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Peter Aceto, the CEO of Tangerine, recently said in The Globe and Mail, “I would rather engage in a Twitter conversation with a single customer than see our company attempt to attract the attention of millions in a coveted Superbowl commercial.”
This is the preference of a truly social CEO. Unfortunately, chief executives that embrace and understand the promise of social media are rare, so rare that we call them “blue unicorns” in our book, A World Gone Social. Why blue unicorns? Because CEOs that embrace social as much as leaders like Aceto are still so uncommon that we aren’t just looking for any unicorn, we’re looking for a specific color of unicorn.

The Counterintuitive Art of Leading by Letting Go

The Counterintuitive Art of Leading by Letting Go | New Leadership | Scoop.it

One of the fundamental inconsistencies we see in workplaces today is the gap between leaders’ desire for “empowered and engaged” employees and what actually ends up happening during the personal interactions of leaders with employees. Often, these actions inadvertently have the effect of reducing the employee’s drive toward empowerment.

John Michel's curator insight, June 29, 6:05 AM

When leaders make mistakes, we point to them and make scapegoats of them. Often the organization follows the leader over the cliff. The problem is not leaders making mistakes, the problem is leaders giving the orders.

Stop leading like it is the 1900s | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Zappos has recently been the news about its move to holacracy. I find it amusing that self proclaimed consulting gurus and more have been so apprehensive and negative in their predictions around how this will end. The way I see it, the transition to new forms of leading and organizing work will not happen overnight. We need leaders who are willing to have the courage to step outside their comfort zone to experiment and explore new ways of organizing work. In a world where many companies think flexible work is innovative, I have to applaud Zappos for their bold attempt.

Organizations going through a change initiative – or ones that have experienced significant change organically – can attest to one fact: Change is not easy.


Whether it’s implementing a new process, policy, or procedure – or trying to change the overall culture of an organization – there are more reasons the initiative will not succeed than reasons it will. That’s not to say that change is impossible. And with the right leadership and a committed team, any initiative can be successful. But there are always roadblocks.


And one of the most common roadblocks – one that surprises those leading the change?

4 Questions That Help Build a Winning Leadership Team

4 Questions That Help Build a Winning Leadership Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it
In the SEALs, whenever we were on patrol, there were three fundamental questions each operator would constantly ask himself:

Is my gun up?
Where would I go if we were contacted by the enemy?
How can I support my buddy?
Of course, asking the same questions over and over for hours on end gets monotonous, so the occasional, “How am I going to beat the next level in HALO?” question would surreptitiously sneak in, too.

The takeaway here is this. What questions -- when asked repeatedly -- breed relevance and avoid obsolescence? In other words, what questions never get old, continue to foster growth, and directly apply to every situation?

If delivering value every day is part of your organizational “menu,” consider these four questions to drive perpetual leadership development:

It’s not surprising that if you have two team members who actively dislike each other, this can affect team performance. However, a new study has suggested ways in which teams can overcome any negative effects.

When two members of staff who dislike each other are forced to work together in a team, the negative effects can expand past the originating members, affecting the relationships and performance of the whole team. However, recent research suggests that it may not affect team performance if there two key factors in play:
