The 5 Stages of Becoming a Successful Thought Leader - Forbes | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The idea of becoming a thought leader is a nebulous and confusing concept to grasp. Every leader’s approach is different, and there’s no secret formula to success. Becoming a thought leader doesn’t happen overnight.

Three Things Every Manager Should Know about Consumer Boycotts

Three Things Every Manager Should Know about Consumer Boycotts | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In October 2014, Lego caved in to a consumer boycott. 

 

Not that it was a formal boycott. Lego faced a Greenpeace campaign consisting of a viral video (plastic polar bears drowning in crude oil), a few protesters dressed as Lego figures, and a petition.

Nor was the world’s favourite toy company the real target. Greenpeace was trying to use Lego to damage oil giant Shell, with which Lego had a marketing tie-in. Shell — as everyone now knows — is planning to drill for oil in the Arctic.

(From the article): Regardless of what you intend to mean, think about how your words are going to impact others and whether that’s how you want to them to feel. Craig was notorious for saying things that made others bristle, but he began to consider the impact of his words. Before every meeting, he spent a few minutes asking himself: What is the impression I want to make? How do I want people to feel about me at the end? How do I need to frame my message to reach that objective?

Why Complaining is Good Business

Why Complaining is Good Business | New Leadership | Scoop.it

There is an old management adage that comes up from time to time. And when it does, it is stated with nods, winks, and knowingness. It goes something like this, “Don’t come to me with your complaints. If you are going to complain, bring the solution —then I will pay attention.


For the record, each time I hear ANY variation of this, I want to throw up. Complaining is a symptom that something is wrong. And this adage is like telling a kid, “Don’t be sad before you know how to become happy.”

Why Feedback Is a Business Imperative

Why Feedback Is a Business Imperative | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The importance of measuring the climate you create cannot be understated. I submit that you, as the leader, have the responsibility to take your organization’s temperature on a regular basis so that you can validate whether or not it meets with your intentional objectives, or if a course correction is required.  Without regular and consistent updates, you may never truly understand the environment you are creating for your team.

Leadership Finds a Rhythm to Keep Going

Leadership Finds a Rhythm to Keep Going | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It is true that leaders deal with hard situations. There are times when the leaders we choose become tired, discouraged, frustrated. There are times when the challenges seem to overwhelm us, when we must give up. There are times when our challenges seem to overwhelm the people we trust to lead us.

(From the article) Work is a tool to develop people who, in turn, do great work.Traditional view of leadership is that leaders get work done through people. Which is true, however, I also believe that available body of work is an opportunity to develop people. You can use people as ‘resources’ OR you can use work as a ‘resource’ to develop people.
