3 Warning Signs You’re Leading on Autopilot

3 Warning Signs You’re Leading on Autopilot | New Leadership | Scoop.it
I often find myself driving my car on auto-pilot. No, my car doesn’t actually have autopilot, or “driver assist,” but I’ll find myself mentally on autopilot. Since the vast majority of time when I drive I’m traveling the familiar journey to and from work, I’ll sometimes mindlessly start driving the same route even when I’m intending to go somewhere else!

Over the course of my leadership journey there have been times when I’ve found myself leading on autopilot. Using autopilot is a helpful and necessary tool for airplane pilots, but it’s deadly for leaders. Leading on autopilot is equivalent to “mailing it in” – you physically show up to do the job but your heart and mind are elsewhere.

Here are three warning signs you may be leading on autopilot:

In an article for HBR in 2014 the co-founder of Fast Company, Bill Taylor, commented “It takes a real sense of personal commitment, especially after you’ve arrived at a position of power and responsibility, to push yourself to grow and challenge conventional wisdom.” 

 But ask yourself this: if I don’t open myself up to learning and developing then how can I expect my people and my organisation to grow and develop, to meet the needs of our customers in a changing world?

Are You an Enabler Boss? 4 Steps to Developing Your People Instead

Are You an Enabler Boss? 4 Steps to Developing Your People Instead | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When you are constantly asked by a member of your work team for details on how to perform a task, it’s very easy to keep telling them again and again how to do it—or worse, doing it for them.

But does this leadership style help them gain confidence and grow into a high performer?  Or have you become an enabler of dependent behavior?

How to identify the “jellyfish” leader and six skills to avoid being one yourself

How to identify the “jellyfish” leader and six skills to avoid being one yourself | New Leadership | Scoop.it
I feel like a biologist who has codified and named a new species of corporate leader: the jellyfish. You’ve likely already encountered it and just didn’t have a name for it. 

What are its behavioral characteristics? It survives by going with the flow and not standing out. Its direction changes (frequently) based on the wind and currents around it. And it eats as long as it drifts through enough food, but it cannot master its own destiny and swim to new food or create its own supply.

Simply put, invertebrates make bad corporate leaders. Why? Because employees model what they see being practiced by their leaders, so it’s critical for them to set the standard. The cost of not doing so is enormous. Poorly led organizations become breeding grounds for politics. Politics get in the way of execution. And execution, not strategy, is often the determining factor that enables one company to succeed and causes another to fail.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution: what it means and how to respond

The Fourth Industrial Revolution: what it means and how to respond | New Leadership | Scoop.it
We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders of the global polity, from the public and private sectors to academia and civil society.

The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production. The Second used electric power to create mass production. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production. Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.

What makes the ideal team player?

What makes the ideal team player? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When it comes to visible team performance we in the UK have seen some amazing examples in recent times.

From the history-making season Leicester City FC just completed to the now four-times Tour De France winning Sky team.

It makes us wonder – what are the common characteristics in these teams, and more specifically in the members of those teams that must exist in order to succeed, and succeed again?

Ultimately it boils down to three simple virtues. They must be humble, they must be hungry, and they must be smart.

8 fundamental questions a leader needs to answer

8 fundamental questions a leader needs to answer | New Leadership | Scoop.it
EXPERIENCE HAS TAUGHT ME MANY THINGS. One of the most valuable lessons has been, that in order to successfully adapt to any change, you must begin by asking the right questions. Not only this, you must ask and answer them in the right order. This is true regardless of whether the change is big or small or affects us as individuals, our teams or our organisations.

Failure to answer the right questions is guaranteed to make the change harder than it needs to be, more costly, deliver a less valuable outcome and take a higher toll on your most valuable asset – your people.

Creating an organisation that is more adaptive than it is today is an organisational change and just like any other, it needs to start by answering the right questions. The irony is, of course, that in order to successfully transition from where your organisation is today, to where it needs to be, requires the same capability (i.e. being adaptive) that it is actually wanting to create. This makes creating The Adaptive Organisation one of the toughest changes of all and helps to explain why so few organisations succeed. It’s also why starting with what I call The Adaptive Fundamentals is critically important.
