Successfully managing an ageing workforce

Successfully managing an ageing workforce | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The challenges of managing a workforce within the context of an ageing population are faced by all employers at a time when organisations are struggling to achieve “inter-generational fairness”. Two of the competing priorities are set out in the CIPD’s Manifesto for Work (July 2014): addressing youth unemployment through a variety of measures; and ensuring a pensions framework through which workers can build a sustainable retirement.

5 Principles of Leadership Presence

5 Principles of Leadership Presence | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The aerial maneuvers and precision coordination of the Thunderbirds show is rehearsed hundreds of times before being viewed by millions of spectators each year. Often overlooked is the abundance of other skills which must be refined and deliberately developed in each and every team member before ‘going on the road.’ In addition to the flight demonstration on a show weekend, the Thunderbird Team accomplishes school visits, media interviews and visits to local social organizations for discussions. It is in these smaller, more personal venues that the persona…the Thunderbird Presence…truly shines. These 5 principles of presence directly carry-over to the leadership world

Tracking the Enemies of Agility | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The failure of big companies to adapt to their changing circumstances is one of the fundamental puzzles in the world of business. Occasionally, a genuinely “disruptive” technology, such as digital imaging, comes along and wipes out an entire industry. But usually the sources of failure are more prosaic and more avoidable.

A Better Way to do Business

A Better Way to do Business | New Leadership | Scoop.it

For the last few decades we’ve become increasingly trapped in thinking of business as all about profit. That has become the driving purpose of most businesses,  with all other considerations being trampled by concerns for cold hard cash.


But there’s a better way to do business. Better from the human side. Better from the customer side. And as it turns out, better from the profit side as well.

Overlook culture at your peril

Overlook culture at your peril | New Leadership | Scoop.it

With General Motor’s culture failings fresh in memory, it’s certainly relevant for everyone to take culture very seriously.

 

As you may know, GM’s CEO was recently called in front of the US congress to answer questions following several deaths and accidents due to faulty car ignitions. The culture was identified as a root cause where people within the organization seem to have been aware of the issues but not done anything about them. After the financial bailout that GM received in 2009, the company had started a culture overhaul programme that does not yet seem to have achieved the desired outcomes. Cultural change does take time though and GM seems to be recognizing the importance of culture, but has not yet come far enough in its efforts.

Great Leaders Lean In

Great Leaders Lean In | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The horrific events of September 11th will forever be remembered as one of the first, and certainly the largest terrorist attack on American soil our country has ever seen. America has significantly changed, and since then, our country’s leaders have courageously declared how we will not be intimidated by terror, how we refuse to live in fear, and now most recently, how America will continue to respond to acts of terror. But yet, many of usdo live in fear. Spend 5 minutes watching the local news and you can see an anxious tension in our airports, on our streets and for some, even in our homes. We are a nation whose leaders have tried to perpetuate an emotional state of groundedness, belief, strength, and resolve. As individuals, we truly want to believe our country is grounded, secure and strong. In many ways it is, but that tension still resides doesn’t it

donhornsby's curator insight, September 11, 11:13 AM

(From the articles): One of your most important tasks as a team leader is to set ambitious but achievable goals with your team’s input. Make clear what the team is working toward and how you expect it to get there. By setting these goals early on, the group’s decision making will be clearer and more efficient, and you’ll lay the framework of holding team members accountable. Many managers inherit their teams, which often means they aren’t creating new goals, but clarifying existing ones. “It’s actually rare that someone gets to come in and redefine the goals for the group in a profound way,” says Watkins. In those instances, your challenge as a manager is to reorganize roles or rethink strategies to best achieve the goals at hand.

Managers need to recognise that not all of the best work is done in teams and through collaboration. Personal knowledge development is so often overlooked.
