If you've ever tried to instill a culture of process improvement in an organization, then you know it is not an easy task. There are cultural and leadership issues that need to be addressed even before the process improvement tools are launched.

What’s a Top-Rate Organization? One That Gives People Keys to the Culture

What’s a Top-Rate Organization? One That Gives People Keys to the Culture | New Leadership | Scoop.it

“They have a common goal and they have to get there together.”



That was a recent comment made by the coach of an NFL team, Chip Kelly of the Philadelphia Eagles. His comment that “culture beats scheme” was made in reference to trading one of his star players, who from all indications, was known as a prima donna and high maintenance.

 

 

“When he talks about culture, he’s talking about a 360-degree approach,” says David Carter, executive director of the University of Southern California Sports Business Institute.

6 Essential Leadership Responsibilities that Build Effective Teams | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Everybody in business, at one time or another, and probably more than once, has witnessed the results of poor leadership: listless and confused employees leading to stagnating sales, excess costs, and crumbling profits.


It happens at every level of the organization, from frontline supervisors right through the top echelons.


Teamwork is key, but it doesn’t happen automatically.

How Rebellious Leadership Leads to Success

How Rebellious Leadership Leads to Success | New Leadership | Scoop.it

We typically think of leaders as smart, gregarious, inspiring, creative or confident, but how often have you heard a leader described as a maverick, insurgent, radical or agitator? Steve Jobs was one example of a rebellious leader.

His challenging nature has been well-documented, and it actually helped him build one of the world’s most profitable companies.


Rebellious leaders embrace descriptors like disobedient, insubordinate or defiant. They are distinctive because they go against the grain, deliberately upsetting accepted ways of thinking and doing in order to create something that’s worth their time, energy and whatever they’re risking.

Great Leaders Develop People

Great Leaders Develop People | New Leadership | Scoop.it
The ability to actually develop people over time is one of the most significant differences between leaders and managers. Managers have the mindset to do the best they can with the people they have, while leaders learn how to take the people they have and make them better. Most experienced leaders and coaches know that the best way to begin to influence people’s perceptions of themselves is to affirm their talents and value gradually and very persistently. Most people are not used to another person looking at them and actually seeing more talent and more upside than everyone else perceives. This is exactly what exceptional leaders do.

Enabling Peak Performance in the Workplace

Enabling Peak Performance in the Workplace | New Leadership | Scoop.it

We’ve all experienced it – those moments of incredible productivity when everything seems to naturally come together to facilitate, support and enhance our efforts. The vision of each step is crystal clear, the resources and information you need seem to appear at your fingertips and the output simply flows.


Athletes refer to it as “being in the zone.” Musicians talk about “feeling the groove.” You may think of it as “hitting your stride,” or “firing on all cylinders.” Whatever you call it – it is universally recognized as a period of peak performance.


With the current understanding of motivation and recent research in neuroscience, it is possible to facilitate this level of performance for your team. However it requires a holistic understanding and approach in order to support your employees’ motivational needs.

Max van Manen used similar musical analogies in describing pedagogy. The roots of pedagogy are leading children and the roots of education includes knowing when to let go. Gadamer said that teaching is about the student becoming the teacher.

Watching the orchestra and analyzing the role of the conductor are ways of seeing leadership from a different perspective, and there are many parallels between orchestras and corporations.

I think that leadership is important. One evidence is already in this news, where is it shown that leadership is taught so long time ago just because of its importance.

3 Powerful Ways to Promote Workplace Optimism

3 Powerful Ways to Promote Workplace Optimism | New Leadership | Scoop.it

You and your team deserve to enjoy work. The workplace should be a positive influence on people and their lives. Yet for too many it’s just not the case. In one study, 48% of employees frequently feel a lot of stress in their work. This adversely affects their wellbeing. Boutique consultancy Root found that 68% of workers feel that their managers are more focused on their own success instead of inspiring their employees. The workplace has become lopsided—too much negativity and not enough optimism.

I’ve written about workplace optimism here and here and here. In short, though, it is a mood in the environment that gives people hope that good things can come from their work. Furthermore, people have meaningful relationships and work that fulfill basic needs.

So what, then, can a leader do to cultivate such a vibe? Let’s take a look at some actionable ways to find some balance in the lopsided workplace.

How Leadership Behavior is Squashing Innovation and Creativity

How Leadership Behavior is Squashing Innovation and Creativity | New Leadership | Scoop.it

For any organization to be successful, it has to continually innovate and evolve. This is one of the great business lessons that have withstood the test of time.

 

In his book, True Alignment: Linking Company Culture with Customer Needs for Extraordinary Results, author Edgar Papke notes that one of the keys to organizational success – especially in the area of innovation – is its employees’ ability to openly and confidently express their ideas.

 


The free flow of new ideas is essential for keeping an organization competitive, and is at the heart of building employee buy-in and getting them to take ownership of both their own work and the company’s objectives.

I have a granddaughter named Peyton She is 2-years-old and is learning to talk. She stayed with us a few weekends ago, and her favorite phrase now is “THANK YOU.” As she followed my wife and I around the house, everything we did together came back with those two words.

Minimising leadership risk – and why it matters

Minimising leadership risk – and why it matters | New Leadership | Scoop.it

One of the most surprising findings of our research into FTSE 100 companies is that while many recognise the positive impact of effective leadership management on business performance, this is not supported by any notable action. 67% of companies identified people, talent and key management as a principal risk - up from 44% in 2011 - yet 97% do not have HR representation on the board. Equally striking is that in 93% of cases, this function is not present on the risk committee either.

The Single Best Way To Develop Leadership Skills

The Single Best Way To Develop Leadership Skills | New Leadership | Scoop.it

You might learn a great deal in school, but it’s doubtful that you’ll actually develop as a leader by reading a book or taking a course. The military is right about experiential development: People grow and become leaders by making a commitment to a cause, and having personal responsibility and accountability.  


For those of us in civilian life, there are also ways for us to develop as leaders through experience: through volunteer service. There are myriad nonprofit missions from which to choose, roles and positions in which to engage that are meaningful and productive, and paths for personal and professional advancement.

(From the article): To children, the world is a place of constant wonder, and the simplest outing or activity can seem like a game or a safari in their eyes. Richard Branson is just one of many entrepreneurs who seem to bring this brand of child-like wonder to everything they do.

 

If something seems boring, go at it as a five-year-old would. Turn it into a game. Imagine ways to change it around. You just may discover a different, better, or at least more interesting approach to the same boring task.
