Understanding the Future of Work: 8 Traits of Collaborative Leadership ... - Business 2 Community | New Leadership | Scoop.it

With the collaborative economy pushing businesses into the next phase of social business, executives must learn how to motivate, encourage and lead employees [and customers too] in a way that adds value to everyone involved in the collaborative work environment. Employees and customers are collaborating on products, services and content more than ever before. In preparation for the collaborative economy, consider what role do executives play in fostering a collaborative environment when employees and customers can receive what they need from each other?

It should be obvious that building and reinforcing an organizational culture takes many people, and leaders at every level play a fundamental roll.  That said, I think this article hits the nail on the head by emphasizing that culture is "something that we do" ... and not something that can be proceduralized -- it's more art and less science -- it's more indirect influence and less direct supervision -- it matters a lot but there's no shortcut to quickly creating a good culture.

Excellent post!  

 

From the article:

 

Hiring the right managers makes all the difference. Steve Miranda, Managing Director for Cornell University’s Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies (CAHRS), said in an interview that he believed 80 percent of employee turnover resulted from the environment created by a manager as opposed to the company at large.


So it’s critical to work closely to make sure there’s a consistent open line of communication between employees and managers, and that managers are working collaboratively and positively with their employees.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 6, 2013 9:51 AM

(From the article): Though, there are many other employee retention strategies for engaging and retaining employees, these tips should serve as a good start. Be transparent, have a clear employee value proposition, communicate with employees early and often, know what they want and what you want, and what motivates them.

Co-author of the book 'The Ascending Leader' says "more than three-quarters of the time, leaders who fail do so because of poor assimilation to the culture of their new workplace."

 

HR has an important role to partner with new leaders early on: "HR professionals should advise them to study and understand the culture first so the new executives can ensure that their proposed changes are a good fit for the company."

 

"In addition, HR professionals can help leaders assess and understand their strengths and weaknesses as they take on a new role—even if it’s within the same company."

A leader’s job is to create contexts that will allow followers to adopt new perspectives on the challenges they face, and therefore, new actions that lead

With the exponential increase in the complexity of global business, managers and leaders must remain adept at addressing both routine and non-routine challenges.

Modern management theory and practice have all but conquered what it takes to address routine challenges successfully. Unfortunately, the strategies and thinking that are so successful for meeting routine, well-defined challenges do not seem to have the same predictable success rate when applied to non-routine, adaptive challenges. Some interventions work some of the time, but not all of the time and certainly not across industries or in all situations. At best, we are left to the cumulative efforts of several interventions that, when applied together, produce some incremental improvement (for example, incentive systems, inspirational talks, new policies, reorganizations).

5 Ways Executives Can Participate in Social Business

5 Ways Executives Can Participate in  Social Business | New Leadership | Scoop.it
One of the most important criteria of a social business is executive level participation. 5 ways executives can participate in a social business.

 

I recently wrote a blog post about the 5 characteristics of a social business, and I’ve previously provided my slide deck on the topic from speaking gigs on the topic. One of the most important criteria of a social business is executive level participation. Simply stated when the C suite gets it, the organization is well positioned to become a social business.

 

The “C suite” is typically the phrase that represents the highest ranking executives starting with the Chief Executive Officer or CEO. Executive titles vary from business to business. So, if “C” titles don’t apply in your organization, don’t sweat it. Just apply these ideas to the top managers running your company.

(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?

With the majority of the organizations that I work with the top execs still seem to have limited online presence.  It is true that are so busy keeping up with their operation, and prioritize the face-to-face as well as traditional methods.

 

Also, depending on the position -- they need to be careful on what they can post.  What advice do you have for the top level execs who do want to influence online without having to jump through hoops with PR/Marketing/Legal to approve their posts?

Claudia DeSalvo's curator insight, August 16, 2013 2:55 PM

Communication is key, especially when it comes to giving feedback. Talking at people isn't as effective as taking the time to build a structure for relationships.

 

Understanding is a must, especially when it comes to building trust and engagement. Do your employees know what they need to do to be successful? Giving them adequate resources is a crucial part in ensuring top quality results from them. The article gives a good question to ask yourself:


“What is the most important thing these employees want to know, what is the best way to encourage dialogue and how would they be most comfortable sharing input?”

 

After taking the employees into consideration, think of good ways to get them to share their ideas. This will be an opening for formal[printed] and informal[a quick convo] feedback. The feedback should be respected by both parties, and should be responded to in a timely manner. This makes it so that the employee feels valued. After exchanging feedback, you should continue regularly sharing ideas. Communication is best when its two-way.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, August 19, 2013 6:40 AM

Great scoop Claudia.  The only thing I would add to the article is that the supervisor should ensure to request additional feedback from her/his direct reports, in addition to getting feedback from established organiazation channels like suggestion boxes, etc.  

 

The reason this is so important is becuase direct report have great specific insight that can help the supervisor learn even more from the feedback.  

 

Frrom the article:

 

Act on feedback – Highly engaged employees are enthused about their organization and believe they can positively influence its success. Acting on employee feedback and highlighting the impact employees make is a strong engagement builder. Be sure that all employees know how their colleagues’ suggestions or ideas are being implemented.


Regularly sharing results and requesting additional feedback creates predictable, consistent two-way communication that encourages employees to take ownership and understand their ideas are valued by the organization.

What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Management and leadership practises were once just a subject for TV sitcoms – the Office's David Brent, a master of 'management speak', was celebrated as an example of all that is bad about bosses.

 

But recent scandals, such as those concerning the BBC, NHS and the banking sector, have forced the debate about management and leadership up the agenda. Employers and politicians alike are now asking how our public and private bodies should be organised – and how we can prepare the next generation of leaders.

 

Key to the problem is understanding the difference between management and leadership, says John Kotter, Konosuke Matsushita professor of leadership at Harvard University. He fears that too often, employers use the terms synonymously.

Leadership Fit For The Information Age

Organizations need to let go of previously held notions of leadership in order to embrace a new leadership concept and strategy more suited to today’s environment.

 

Future organizations will necessarily rely upon knowledge-intensive networks of highly connected and autonomous talent, empowered to rapidly converge on singular intersections of common interest without guidance from above.

 

Such co-ordination will not be achieved through centralized command and control, but through network leadership – in effect, self-direction in the interests of a common purpose and guided by shared values.
