Great scoop and fantastic insight Anne!  I have seen some senior leaders put in great efforts to update their leadership.  It is great to see!

donhornsby's curator insight, October 29, 2013 8:27 AM

(From the article): Leadership is all about taking risks and knowing when to take them.   If you don’t feel comfortable being uncomfortable  – courageous enough to see and seize opportunities that others don’t and do what others won’t – it is impossible to be  an effective leader.   These are the fundamentals of sustainable leadership.   So look around you and ask yourself the following question:  Has your leadership style become outdated?

Menno Molendijk's curator insight, October 30, 2013 4:30 AM

Stay in tune. With the people around you. And yourself.

What does the future hold for HR?

What does the future hold for HR? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Our profession is facing a host of contradictions at the moment, a predicament that was highlighted to me as I caught up on my HR reading over the summer.


One particular book, a free e-book called The Rise of HR, which contains essays by 73 thought-leaders, examines many of these “exciting and frightening times for HR professionals”, as Jorge Jauregui Morales, president of the World Federation of People Management Associations, refers to it.


In the book, hosted online by the CIPD, publisher HR Certification Institute (HRCI) optimistically sees the profession sitting “at the centre of some of the most important decisions in any business”, while the function “is rapidly expanding its influence” in the workplace.

Why traditional performance management may be hurting your engagement — and what you can do about it

Why traditional performance management may be hurting your engagement — and what you can do about it | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Today, plenty of experts and studies confirm what we already know: traditional performance management is broken.

But it’s not just slightly flawed. It’s seriously damaged. So much so, that it’s actually creating disengagement and turnover — exactly the opposite of what organisations hope to achieve.

According to a 2014 Deloitte article, only 8% of companies believe their performance management process is highly effective in driving business value, while 58% say it’s not an effective use of time.1

How to create confidence in senior leaders

How to create confidence in senior leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Top performing organisations strive for employee engagement excellence as they know they’ll be more productive, grow faster and innovate more. They develop thriving cultures and winning people practices that propel them into the upper quartile of engaging organisations. But how exactly do they do this?

People Insight is a consultancy supporting hundreds of the UK’s top organisations measure and improve employee engagement. We have created PIPER (People Insight Peak Engagement Research), a new study asking the most engaged employees in the most engaged organisations what exactly makes them buzz.

This is the first in a series of themed articles which shares the secrets from top performing organisations - practices and behaviours that we know have worked; because employees themselves have said so.

(From the article): Be present and show gratitude.

I remember when, as a leader, I rarely took the time to celebrate the organization's accomplishments. Because every moment was filled with business, I never took the time to really be present. Love your business, love your work, be mindful of your accomplishments and live in the moment. It only comes once.

Creative Leadership Means Being Present

Creative Leadership Means Being Present | New Leadership | Scoop.it
The ability for being present is not something mystic. Most everyone recognizes it and has experienced it in themselves and others at some time or another. However, it is not always easy to talk about, precisely because it involves more than our cognitive and verbal abilities. It is also a crucial aspect of creative leadership. THNK encourages its future leaders to be as present as they can be. A nice example of how leadership can unfold while being present is in the journey of one of our partic

The helpful manager: How volunteering can benefit managers | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In the run-up to the general election in May this year, Prime Minister David Cameron pledged that a new law would be passed requiring companies with more than 250 employees and public sector organisations to give staff up to three days’ paid leave a year to do voluntary work. Employee volunteering appears to be a priority for this Conservative government but does volunteering benefit managers in terms of their management and leadership skills?

Humility in Leadership

Humility in Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It strikes me that those things which used to be peripheral can become central: those things which used to be soft can become hard. There used to be words like ‘competition‘, ‘performance‘ and ‘leadership‘, which were testosterone laden and associated with success, and words like ‘kindness‘, ‘fairness‘ and ‘humility‘, which were nice, but not ‘hard‘ like the rest. You could be a nice loser, or a tough winner. But there was no space for humility in a competitive world.

3 Ways You’re Being a Less Effective Leader Than You Could Be

3 Ways You’re Being a Less Effective Leader Than You Could Be | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Do leaders work or do they sit back and supervise others? Once you’ve been in a leadership role, you realize leadership doesn’t magically happen. It requires skills, expertise and intangible qualities like gravitas. It takes time and effort to apply those capabilities. A leader’s work can be thought of as a range of “leadership services” provided to team members. Providing these services takes time and energy. The same way organizations don’t have unlimited financial capital to invest, leaders don’t have unlimited time and energy to invest in leading their teams. That dynamic requires leaders to be deliberate in their approach to allocating their leadership capital.

Connecting transformational leadership, purpose and the triple bottom line

Connecting transformational leadership, purpose and the triple bottom line | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Of all the issues that executive teams and HR directors face, one of the most challenging is how to achieve a sense of purpose among employees. Initiatives in this area are just as likely to provoke employee resistance as they are to stimulate employee engagement.

Too often, the process of instilling a powerful sense of purpose in an organisation involves long-drawn-out meetings and a mildly inspirational speech from the CEO about the company’s mission and vision. Afterwards there will usually be some managers and employees who criticise the leadership team under their breath for their ignorance of what actually goes on inside the company.
