The Impact of the Digital Revolution on Leadership

The Impact of the Digital Revolution on Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Today, workplaces are undergoing a digital revolution which is helping to transform entire industries and forcing companies to change the way they operate. Digitisation has the potential to increase productivity and efficiency, while also improving communication, and remote working is no longer an exception but an expectation.

However, in addition to the transformation of the workplace itself, the digital age is having an impact upon leadership and, more specifically, on what is expected of a leader. This will have an effect not only on existing leaders, but on future leadership development as well. How exactly is the digital revolution impacting senior business figures?

Execution without Measurement is Hallucination

Execution without Measurement is Hallucination | New Leadership | Scoop.it

“Strategy without execution is hallucination.” – T. Edison

Around the globe and for decades now, business leaders have been embracing Thomas Edison’s adage to the letter. And it worked – until now. In recent years, indeed, many people have been playing the ‘blame game.’ We’ve all heard “it’s the VP who failed at cascading,” or “it’s managers who failed to deliver the gospel at their own local levels” or “it’s employees who failed to engage with the all-too-brilliant strategy.”

More elegantly framed, it is the misalignment between the grand vision emanating from the pundits at the top and the grunts’ capabilities that have been the culprits for this failure to execute. Quite simply, execution without measurement is hallucination.

Our work with some of the world’s largest corporations has exposed this truth: it is not necessarily because of ‘misalignment’ that initiatives fail to execute well. But rather, it is the lack of wholeheartedness on the one hand, and the lack of yardsticks when measuring success on the other, that are truly responsible for today’s disastrous implementation success rate.

Here are three takeaways based on our work with industry leaders. These, I hope, will help any manager increase the odds of succeeding in future roll-outs.

10 Things a Social Leader Does

Successful leaders know the importance of communication. Lolly Daskal presents 9 key communication habits that great leaders use for success with their teams and themselves.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 23, 9:39 AM
(From the article): Use the power of "I" statements.

Communication becomes more productive when you avoid stating your thoughts as facts. For example, instead of saying, "This project is a failure," you might say, "I am very concerned about the sustainability of this project." Try to avoid "you" statements ("You haven't done anything") that set up a cycle of judgment and defensiveness. Instead, say, "I can see there's still a lot to be done."

Your Margin of Power

Your Margin of Power | New Leadership | Scoop.it
The most overlooked factor in effective leadership is capacity: the time, attention, and energy that you, as an individual leader, can give. You cannot manage people, projects, or priorities without it. You cannot remain engaged in the development of others without it. And leadership capacity is a necessary enabler for completing all of the elusive and important tasks on your plate, as well as for influencing others over whom you have no authority, navigating complexity, and dealing with the unexpected.

How to Get (More of) What You Want in Negotiations

How to Get (More of) What You Want in Negotiations | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The results of empirical research on the performance of negotiators offers many surprising, and often counterintuitive findings that are often at odds with the commonly held beliefs of most negotiators. In this article, we discuss two counterintuitive ways highlighted by empirical research that will help you get (more of) what you want in your negotiations. First, negotiators often underestimate the power of the powerless in negotiations and try to match the dominant behaviors of their powerful counterpart. Second, negotiators can use persons which are seemingly adverse to their interests strategically.
