21 Lessons in Leadership From the Prophet Muhammad | Part 1

21 Lessons in Leadership From the Prophet Muhammad | Part 1 | New Leadership | Scoop.it
“Everything rises and falls on leadership.” This is a quote made famous by America's top leadership guru, Dr. John C. Maxwell, in his bestselling book, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. The first time I read this quote was in 2002, when I was a rookie teacher at an Islamic school. I remember staring at that statement and thinking, “what does he mean by that?” To find the answer, I kept reading the rest of the book, and my life has never been the same.

I started to look at everything from a leadership lens. The good and bad of every school, masjid, organization, family and even country were directly related to the quality of their leaders. I was so fascinated by this topic of leadership that I went on to study it in graduate school. I also implemented as many good leadership principles as possible in my classrooms as a teacher in public, private, charter and international schools, and as a principal in private Islamic schools in the Virgin Islands and in Houston, Texas. Now, I teach these leadership principles day in and day out in companies, schools, non-profits and masjids internationally, because I know the kind of positive impact that great leadership can make.

In a survey of top leaders by Booz and Company last year, 84 percent said culture was critical to success, and yet the majority admitted their culture was in need of a major overhaul. 

 

So, how do you transform a culture to meet your company’s needs today? How can you get employees or teams to behave the way you need them to execute your strategies and enhance your performance as well as your employee engagement and the customer experience?


How do you get the innovation and agility you need in fast-changing markets? How do you get the cross-organizational collaboration that makes one plus one equal three?

5 Rules to Avoid a Collaboration Hangover

5 Rules to Avoid a Collaboration Hangover | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In a world gone social, an ever increasing number of organizations are chasing the benefits of social collaboration, both inside and outside their own walls. With initiatives such as Google launching its high altitude balloons to wirelessly 

connect billions of people in remote areas, global collaboration has never been easier and is expected to surge in the next decade. The core drivers to have employees, customers, partners and many other kinds of communities collaborate with each other are obvious: spread knowledge, reduce costs, increase innovation speed and success, share risk, boost market performance and improve operating efficiency. Yet, despite the fact that the promises of social business are overwhelming, Gartner estimates that throughout 2015 about 80% of social business efforts are not expected to achieve the intended benefits. Even more so, many collaboration initiatives leave participants behind with a hangover, generating the opposite effect of what was intended originally.

Safe Enough to Fail: How Leaders Can Encourage Risk-Taking and Innovation

Safe Enough to Fail: How Leaders Can Encourage Risk-Taking and Innovation | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Sara Blakely, the billionaire founder of Spanx, a women’s shapewear company, tells an interesting story about how she learned to appreciate the value of smart risk-taking. When she was a child, her dad would ask her brother and her the same question every Friday evening at the dinner table: “What have you failed at this week?”
Sara says that her father’s weekly question set forth an expectation in her mind: To excel in life and work, you have to extend yourself—even to the point of failure. Now Sara carries that lesson forward in the way she reacts to employees’ mistakes at work. She notes that when people make mistakes at Spanx, especially when those mistakes shed light on a new business insight, she is never disappointed. Instead, she goes up to these employees and gives them a high five.

The CEO's Checklist to Keeping Employees Happy and Fulfilled - Masters and PhDs

The CEO's Checklist to Keeping Employees Happy and Fulfilled - Masters and PhDs | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When employees have a casual, stress-free time at work, they’re going to be more productive in general. As a business owner, it’s your job to establish procedures that will keep your employees happy and motivated.

Before diving into specific advice, it’s important to realize that every workplace has its own dynamics. And, much like how a principal doesn’t have a grasp of how schoolchildren treat each other in the trenches, a CEO doesn’t necessarily know all of the interpersonal dynamics that go on amongst their employees. Many of the most hostile, toxic actions taken in a workplace come in an attempt to curry favor with the boss.

Decoding Leadership Presence

Decoding Leadership Presence | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Many career gurus will say leadership presence is essential to becoming a good, and ladder-climbing leader. In my experience, however, many good leaders get ahead with only a mild ability to be noticed when they enter the room, depending on the  company’s leadership culture. In addition, research shows that confidence and presence often help you get ahead even if you don’t deserve it. Leaders who get ahead on confidence alone flame out and fall prey to the Peter Principle before they get to the top.

(From the article): The fact is that giving people bigger jobs with fancier titles and larger salaries won’t make them better.

 

More complex assignments will. Just look at the leaders of ANZ, the global banking group headquartered in Melbourne. Each time an employee identified as having high potential is promoted, the company makes sure it’s not to the same job on a larger scale (in terms of budget and resources) but to an entirely new set of challenges—maybe it’s relocating to a new country, shifting from a staff to a line role, or moving from a turnaround situation to launching a new business unit. Companies like GE, Unilever, and McKinsey do the same, exposing their highest-potentials to new sectors, new companies, new markets, new situations, and new functions, making themselves leadership factories in the process.

3 Ways You’re Killing Employee Motivation — and How to Stop

3 Ways You’re Killing Employee Motivation — and How to Stop | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Employers are always looking for ways to boost employee engagement and get the best out of their people. But even as they do, many are inadvertently causing their workers to disengage. Could you be one of them?


Are you guilty of any of these common motivation killers?

 

more...
donhornsby's curator insight, October 27, 8:48 AM

(From the article): For years it’s been standard for employers to keep salaries, sales numbers and other key statistics a secret shared only by board members, senior leaders and anyone government regulators required them to inform. 

 

The problem with this is that secrets erode trust — the foundation of great teams and teamwork. When employees don’t feel trusted and don’t have every reason to trust their employers, they’re less engaged and less motivated to do their best.

 

What to do instead: Recognize that transparency builds trust, trust supports teams, and great teams — not great individuals — build successful organizations. Make transparency your default.

Many new organizations are starting to do this. For example, Buffer, a company I respect a lot, publishes every employee’s salary from the CEO down and includes details about its pay structure and the rationale for the way it’s set it up. Buffer is also completely open about its revenue, paying customers and other metrics.

When employees aren’t engaged at work, they don’t give their employers their best. If you want your employees’ best, you need to make sure you’re not inadvertently killing their motivation to give it to you.
