Are you ready to be a social age leader?

Are you ready to be a social age leader? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Industrial Age leadership was good, or at least efficient. It enabled us to get the most out of every worker; expectations were set; consequences for not meeting minimums were clear. People did what they were told, and went home.


But the Industrial Age is over. And it’s not coming back.

 

Welcome to the Social Age.

Why team building is important to your business strategy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Throughout life, we all like to be made to feel worthy and appreciated, knowing that our presence is part of an essential drive towards a positive outcome. Within the workplace, job satisfaction is a vital element in ensuring the successful running of a business. In achieving this, it is important for an employee to feel needed, acknowledged and praised for their contribution to the progression of company objectives by rewarding them with recognition. Team building is a successful mechanism used to improve the relationship between management and workforce through a series of motivational and energetic events.

The Core Incompetencies of the Corporation

The Core Incompetencies of the Corporation | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Large organizations of all types suffer from an assortment of congenital disabilities that no amount of incremental therapy can cure. First, they are inertial. They are frequently caught out by the future and seldom change in the absence of a crisis. Deep change, when it happens, is belated and convulsive, and typically requires an overhaul of the leadership team. Absent the bloodshed, the dynamics of change in the world’s largest companies aren’t much different from what one sees in a poorly-governed, authoritarian regime – and for the same reason: there are few, if any, mechanisms that facilitate proactive bottom-up renewal.

A Disney Formula for Leadership Success: Values-Infused Leadership

A Disney Formula for Leadership Success: Values-Infused Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
The formula for leadership success is never as simple as 1 + 1 = 2. In fact, a recent article in Inc. Magazine identified 7 Leadership Qualities You May Not Know You Have, pointing out that some personality traits, which might have been considered “weaknesses” in the past, might lead to personal leadership success today.

We agree with the author’s assertion that empathy, optimism, forgiveness, altruism, eloquence, discernment and modesty are all important factors in determining potential leadership success. We also know that great leadership comes from consistently demonstrating these types of traits over time. 

At Disney Institute, we believe that great leadership depends upon the actions one takes with respect to the organization’s values. We call this “values-infused leadership.”

What defines a values-infused leader? Simply stated: these leaders actively cultivate success by making values foundational to their decision-making. These Four Considerations help to determine their effectiveness:

We all want to get somewhere in life and in business. We have goals and dreams. But why is it that only some people are able to get there? Is it because of luck, circumstance, or talent? Depending on the person it could be a combination of these elements.  The one common theme that does come up when conversing with successful people is discipline. Whether it’s a business person growing an organization or an athlete wanting to medal in competition, discipline is the one element they all have in common.  Discipline is a fundamental element in obtaining goals, dreams and desires.

Together with various transitions in business, management is also changing to incorporate more soft skills than ever.

(From the article): Humility essentially means that a leader is modest about his or her position in the rank, and refrains from adopting the management style of a power-hungry megalomaniac. A good leader is able to allow others to lead with him, because they know how to balance confidence and humility. Instead of feeding his or her ego with the power and authority that comes with the function, a great leader is able to blend in and set a rhythm for the whole company to follow.

Organisations seeking a blueprint to address the increasing pressures and demands of the rapidly changing corporate landscape are often confronted with change models that are too academic, too static or overly simplistic for their needs.  A structured yet flexible model is essential and to work effectively requires outstanding leadership behaviours at all times, to proactively manage and deliver the necessary organisational change.

Five Things Great Leaders Do Right

Five Things Great Leaders Do Right | New Leadership | Scoop.it

To state the obvious: Great leadership is vital to any organization. Great leaders set the direction for the organization and determine resource allocation to get it done. They create the tone by how they lead and make decisions. They nurture and enable a culture to thrive. And to do their jobs well, they must be deeply committed to the business and to empowering their people to succeed.


Over the years, I have learned there are many great leaders out there who work hard to do the right thing and have the best intentions to do right by their business and their people. Yet, arecent study by Kelton research shows us that less than 50 percent of employees view this as the truth1. This begs the question: Why aren’t employees’ perceptions matching up with leaders’ intentions?

Purpose is important for leaders today. It will become increasingly vital in the future. We are entering a great age of empowerment for both employees and customers. Employees will demand the right to choose who they work for, which tribes they join and which products they associate with. Purpose will be the basis of much of this choice, and the greatest leaders will rally around missions that offer the chance to have dramatic positive impact.

Rethinking Linear Leadership For Creativity And Innovation

Rethinking Linear Leadership For Creativity And Innovation | New Leadership | Scoop.it
If the solution and the destination are determined up front, it leaves little if any room for creativity and innovation…

We live and work in accountability-driven systems. And for that reason, visions and endpoints proliferate our institutions and organizations. Our destinations have often been determined before we ever begin. Not that being outcome-driven is negative…but very often, the path to get to those outcomes has already been mapped out with excruciating detail before ever beginning the journey.

What we fail to realize, is that authentic creativity and true innovation seldom, if ever, occur in a linear fashion.

Karl Wabst's curator insight, November 3, 2014 2:01 PM

The idea that fears are a huge problem during organizational change is only half of the story.


Fear is only there to make us aware that we need to pay attention. It does not mean stop!

 

Good change leaders take psychology and neuroscience into account. Note there are at least two choices.

 

Fear triggers the fight or flight response.


There may be the impulse to run away or to try to ignore the need to change and to keep doing what you always did.  

 

A good leader knows that there is also opportunity in fear. Employees may be motivated to pay attention and fight to get to a new destination.

 

Fear of the unknown makes some people run and hide. It makes others into leaders.

How we see ourselves is often very different from how we appear to others. Actions we believe reflect decisive or confident characteristics may come across as controlling or arrogant while attempts at openness may be perceived as being indecisive or weak. Understanding how supervisors, co-workers, direct reports and clients perceive us can give valuable insights into our leadership behavior and help us become more effective leaders, better able to embrace and adapt to change.
