Embracing Stress To Lead Others Effectively - General Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Leading a stress-free life is not the path to professional advancement and does not serve the people who work for us. Leaders must learn to embrace stress and harness its energy for growth, advancement, and success both in the projects they work on and in their professional career.

More Important than Knowing When to Lead is Knowing When to Follow

More Important than Knowing When to Lead is Knowing When to Follow | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Leadership is not a title or position; it’s power, but not power in the sense that we usually think about power. It is the power to inspire others to do more than they ever thought possible in the best interest of the greater good. On the flipside, anyone can become a follower regardless of the position that they hold. So, why would you ever want to follow if you can lead? The most effective leaders understand that they do not know everything, neither are they always the ones with the greatest influence. Being a great leader requires knowing when to lead and when to follow. Here are four questions to ask yourself to determine whether you should be leading or following.

Leaders, for all their wisdom, sometimes make the mistake of looking at the big picture only to miss the smaller, yet invaluable ways that they can be better at their job. But it’s important to remember that the new hires, the temps, the contractors—employees of all kinds—all play a vital role in that big picture. -

In my early twenties I had the dubious fortune of becoming the leader of a travel agency chain’s worst- performing national store.

From Humble Leader to Narcissist: Where Are You on the Continuum?

From Humble Leader to Narcissist: Where Are You on the Continuum? | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Typically, narcissism is historically associated with physical beauty.

You may recall that in Greek mythology, Narcissus was the handsome young man who became so enchanted with the image of himself in the pool that he could not pull away.

Today we hear about a leader who has narcissistic tendencies, but it’s not so much about their physical beauty as their strong, offensive ego.

Where do fit on the narcissistic leadership continuum? Pinpoint your spot –

(From the article): We live in a time of great opportunity and great peril. The next 50 years will be pivotal. We could either create a new and vital global order of planetary welfare or destroy ourselves. With their global reach, business leaders play a major role in the world’s future. The evolution of ever more effective and conscious leaders is not only a business imperative as complexity escalates, but a global requirement.

Perhaps we have so closely tied worth and value as a human being with the title Leader that to say that someone does not have leadership is to dehumanize them to some degree.  But whatever we decide to call it, there will always be some people who take charge and inspire change.  And there will always be a team of people that take some responsibility in making that change happen.  Let’s start appreciating people for who they are and recognize their contributions.  Everyone has talent.  But we all don’t have to have the same talent.

Most Leaders Stink at Setting Goals – Here’s Why | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Can we be real with each other for just a minute? I may be branded a leadership heretic by what I’m about to say but I’ve got to be honest. Here goes: Setting goals is hard work. It can be tedious. It can be as enjoyable as a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. I sometimes struggle with the process. And I’m not alone. Most leaders stink at setting goals.

Why? It’s pretty simple actually: We confuse tasks with goals.

Groupthink is a product of a lack of trust, but it is also a cultural phenomenon. Perhaps it is so ingrained in the way things are done that it is hard to shake free. Schools abound with groupthink as people focus on managing rather than leading. It will take courageous leaders and followers to step out of those shadows.

10 Principles of Organizational Culture

10 Principles of Organizational Culture | New Leadership | Scoop.it

If the answer to these last two questions is “rarely,” it wouldn’t surprise us. We don’t believe that swift, wholesale culture change is possible — or even desirable. After all, a company’s culture is its basic personality, the essence of how its people interact and work. However, it is an elusively complex entity that survives and evolves mostly through gradual shifts in leadership, strategy, and other circumstances. We find the most useful definition is also the simplest: Culture is the self-sustaining pattern of behavior that determines how things are done.

Made of instinctive, repetitive habits and emotional responses, culture can’t be copied or easily pinned down. Corporate cultures are constantly self-renewing and slowly evolving: What people feel, think, and believe is reflected and shaped by the way they go about their business. Formal efforts to change a culture (to replace it with something entirely new and different) seldom manage to get to the heart of what motivates people, what makes them tick. Strongly worded memos from on high are deleted within hours. You can plaster the walls with large banners proclaiming new values, but people will go about their days, right beneath those signs, continuing with the habits that are familiar and comfortable.

But this inherent complexity shouldn’t deter leaders from trying to use culture as a lever. If you cannot simply replace the entire machine, work on realigning some of the more useful cogs. The name of the game is making use of what you cannot change by using some of the emotional forces within your current culture differently.
