The 5 Communication Habits All Leaders Need to Motivate a Team

The 5 Communication Habits All Leaders Need to Motivate a Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Good communication is certainly a strong leadership trait. But what exactly does that look like? A global leadership study revealed that 85 percent of companies report an urgent need to develop employees with leadership potential. Let me echo that massive study: We are in an era with an alarming leadership shortage. As more Boomers retire and Millennials continue to increase in numbers as the largest working generation, today's companies just aren't prepared to develop tomorrow's leaders.

10 Ways to be Angry Like a Leader

Leaders who suppress anger live with the ponderous weight of things unsaid. Embrace the power of letting yourself be angry. Expression: Anger isn’t the main issue, expression is.  Spontaneous expressions of anger like mouthing off or blowing up elevate heat and make matters worse. “I need to get something off my chest,” often expresses selfish-immaturity.…

How to lead organizational change management

For companies to survive and strive in today’s competitive environment, they will need to change quickly and successfully. Managing change is now a core competence that can no longer be considered a discretionary “nice to have”.

Yet many organizations are falling short in the race to adapt. The accelerating pace of change coupled with increasing uncertainty and complexity has pushed up this skills gap to what is now a major area of concern.

Storytelling: More Than a Presentation Tool

Storytelling: More Than a Presentation Tool | New Leadership | Scoop.it

We all love a good story. Perhaps for you it’s the suspense and rollercoaster of emotions of an action movie or the page turning intrigue of a novel. We can’t wait to see what happens next as we immerse ourselves and drift into another world.

Many executives too have discovered the power of leadership storytelling, but most only see stories as a tool to bring presentations to life. And many leaders find greater comfort just using logic. However, when used wisely stories can be employed to engage with your stakeholders emotions, change attitudes and behaviours, and, importantly, make change happen.

Have you ever witnessed someone lose their cool at work? How suddenly facts, arguments, and reason become irrelevant because a decision maker has a meltdown? Or how, at a meeting, the moderator is holding a monologue rather than engaging with the other participants and encouraging different viewpoints and ideas? Those behaviors are signs of a lack of emotional intelligence. And if leaders lack it, the consequences for their teams can be devastating.

How to Make the Toughest Decisions in the World | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Think of the toughest decision you ever made. It was probably highly visible, of critical importance, and of course, the result wasn’t going to be popular. To make matters worse, you probably felt as though your neck was on the line. It’s also tough when you’re forced to make a decision that could cause people pain –– even if the outcome would be in everyone’s best interest. In each of these circumstances, those with strong moral character took a deep breath, bit the bullet, and pulled the trigger. When it came to tough decisions, they chose to do the right thing.

The Best Strategic Leaders Balance Agility and Consistency

As a former consultant, I have a deep and abiding love for the use of 2×2 matrices in business strategy. My favorites are those that highlight two factors that seem, at first glance, in conflict. I find these particularly relevant to personal development, as individuals often must resolve the tensions between competing values and traits and must carefully monitor their own strengths so those strengths don’t lapse into weaknesses.

For businesses in crisis, whether in a restructuring or taking steps to avoid one, the stakes cannot get any higher. In these situations, messages matter – not only their content but also their structure, the channel, the timing, and the tone they’re delivered in. What, when and how executives communicate during a crisis is critical and can have a dramatic effect on the change process and resulting outcomes. That’s why we’ve developed a set of principles that business leaders can follow to communicate more effectively – and empathetically – during a crisis.

Corporate culture will need to be both resilient and agile

As the economic recovery takes hold, leaders might be tempted to breathe a sigh of relief and ease up on the pace with which they have been driving their organizations. However, doing so – although appealing – could have disastrous consequences.

Market turbulence did not begin with the fall of Lehman Brothers, and it will not end when the global economy recovers.

In a world of constant change, turbulence will continue to increase. All this uncertainty poses a tremendous challenge on organizations. To respond effectively, leaders must build agility into the fabric of their organization.
