What Does Your Vision Incite?

What does your vision incite? Understanding what your vision incites will help understand if it will work for the long term or not. Does it incite action?

There needs to be a checkpoint to vision on what it is inciting and this two by two matrix may help.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 10, 8:42 PM

Great scoop here via @wildresiliency.  


Totally agree with the following:


Vision is an essential element to making organizations work in meaningful ways but the work needs to be reinforced through the right cultural aspects.


The culture and vision blend:


  • Vision activates action but needs to be reinforced with the culture to incite the right behaviors.
  • Culture empowers people to create, solve, and grow all the while enabling the organization to achieve, build, and realize the vision of what is possible for customers and stakeholders.
  • Vision and culture need to be wrapped together in order to unbind the ability within each team member.

How Do Your Employees Feel? Try Asking Them

How Do Your Employees Feel? Try Asking Them | New Leadership | Scoop.it

How are your colleagues and team members feeling about their workWhen is the last time you took the time to find out – and to do something about it if the answer was “Not so great”?


Daniel Parent, director of field human resources at video game retailerGameStop, is one of those rare, enlightened leaders who does just that. He has a clever way of finding out how his employees are feeling about their work – he asks them. Regularly. And then he makes every effort to address their concerns so they can be happy at work.

"Servant leadership is demonstrated through empowerment and the development of people; by expressing humility, authenticity, interpersonal acceptance, and stewardship; and by providing direction."

John Michel's curator insight, June 6, 11:09 PM

The 21st century has brought much in the way of turmoil and change to the world of business. As a consequence, ways of doing business that were once universally accepted now seem outdated and inflexible in an age where knowledge drives economies and socially responsible corporate attitudes influence stakeholders and shareholders alike.

Sandeep Gautam's curator insight, June 9, 5:09 AM

Like civil servants, its time other leaders/managers too start thinking of them in terms of being a servant of their employees.

Cost cutting is a race to the bottom.  Unless companies learn how to build high performing cultures, with a focus on both the talent and company flourishing, top line growth will remain elusive.

The consultants identified eight factors that seem crucial for success. Not every factor showed up in every successful transformation, but most were usually present: (4 that resonated with my experience)

Collective Genius - Smart Leaders Are Rewriting The Rules of Innovation

Collective Genius - Smart Leaders Are Rewriting The Rules of Innovation | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Google’s astonishing success in its first decade now seems to have been almost inevitable. But step inside its systems infrastructure group, and you quickly learn otherwise. The company’s meteoric growth depended in large part on its ability to innovate and scale up its infrastructure at an unprecedented pace. Bill Coughran, as a senior vice president of engineering, led the group from 2003 to 2011. His 1,000-person organization built Google’s “engine room,” the systems and equipment that allow us all to use Google and its many services 24/7. “We were doing work that no one else in the world was doing,” he says. “So when a problem happened, we couldn’t just go out and buy a solution. We had to create it.”

Managing a Negative, Out-of-Touch Boss

Managing a Negative, Out-of-Touch Boss | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The most frequent question I get asked by the 250,000 people enrolled in my MOOC on leadership is, “How do I deal with my boss who is not only dissonant, but quite negative?” These bosses are “dissonant” in the sense that they’ve lost touch with themselves, others and their surroundings — and it’s nothing new. They come across as negative, self-centered, focused on numbers, and their employees feel like they’re being treated as resources or assets (not as human beings).

The Power of the Positives: transforming workplace morale

The Power of the Positives: transforming workplace morale | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It can be easy to get stuck on the negatives in life. When something bothers you, you dwell on it, working through the repercussions, the solutions, the reasons why it bothered you. It’s a natural human response and one that can be vital in finding answers. The problem is that this focus on the negative can be damaging. It can in fact reinforce the negativity. Think about it on a personal level – if you’re feeling down or as if you’ve failed in a task then does pondering it make you feel better?

Stephen Dale I've been following Dion Hinchcliffe for many years as well. You're fortunate to have met him in London. You bring up a very good point about monitoring our every move. As you say, there is a price we will pay one way or another for privacy and time will tell how this will all shake out in the end. I'd love to connect with you again, it's been a while. As you can see I launched Curatti and we've been very well received. Hope things are going well with you, let's catch up soon.

donhornsby's curator insight, June 10, 8:58 AM

(From the article): Listen and ask questions
Two of the most powerful strategies you can deploy are to listen well, which builds trust, and pose questions that encourage the other party to defend their positions. “If they can’t defend it, you’ve shifted the power a bit,” says Weiss. If your boss says he doesn’t think you are the right addition to a new project, for instance, ask, “What would that person look like?” Armed with that added information, says Neale, “you can then show him that you have those attributes or have the potential to be that person.”

Clearly, there are many ways to evaluate an innovative business opportunity. But at the end of the day, whichever way they do it, people considering a new business idea usually try to fit it into one of these three broad categories.

 

1. “Good idea! Nobody does that.”


2. “Go for it! Customers are complaining all the time that no company’s product or service is good enough at this.”


3. “The idea might be good, but there are very powerful competitors in his industry doing a terrific job.”

Why day dreaming is an essential skill for business owners

Why day dreaming is an essential skill for business owners | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Every business owner needs to day dream – it’s an essential skill if you want to grow your business and ensure it reaches its full potential. By spending time dreaming, you’ll get different insights into what’s really going on, where you want to be, and how you are going to get there. Day dreaming is an important part of the process of strategic planning and envisioning your business’s future direction. It allows you to think big without the constraints of ‘reality’, it allows the mind the wander to places it might not normally go, to see new connections and create new ideas. Day dreaming is important because it has no boundaries, walls or barriers – anything becomes possible.  Walt Disney knew all about the importance of day dreaming.  He attributed his phenomenal run of film release successes to his creative three-step process, later termed: ‘The Disney Strategy’.

donhornsby's curator insight, June 7, 8:25 AM

(From the article): So as leaders and business owners it is vitally important that you start to give yourself permission to be on the balcony of your business, to day dream and to envision the future.  To do this you have to learn to push the mental slider and attend more to developing the capabilities of your creative and intuitive side.
