The Leadership Pursuit that Enhances All Others | Leadership Freak

The Leadership Pursuit that Enhances All Others | Leadership Freak | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Short-sighted leaders love giving feedback, but seldom seek it. When was the last time you said, “I’d like your feedback.” Leaders don’t invite feedback because they don’t want it. You may say you don’t have time. But, it's strange how you make time to give feedback, but not invite it? The pursuit of feedback enhances all other leadership…

Team Not On Board? Check These 4 Things. | New Leadership | Scoop.it

“The whole team’s not on board.”

It’s a common refrain in organizations. Perhaps you’ve even said it yourself, either out loud or in your mind.

 

But why does it happen? And as a leader, what can you do about it?

Relationships, Not Transactions: Practical Tips for Business Success

Relationships, Not Transactions: Practical Tips for Business Success | New Leadership | Scoop.it
We’re all in the relationship business these days. This is especially true in Asia, where group dynamics play a major part in business decision-making and success. As individualistic Westerners, we often overlook how our Asian counterparts seek to determine where and how we fit into their hierarchy. But if you think about the word relationship for a moment, it speaks to a dynamic—involving two or more individuals or things.

5 Elements of Leadership You Can’t Succeed Without

5 Elements of Leadership You Can’t Succeed Without | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Many leaders forget that their success is more about helping other people than about personally becoming famous, or overcoming the odds and getting rich. A successful business has to satisfy customers with a strong team, by helping them solve problems, save money, or experience more pleasure. That means more focus on helping others achieve their goals.

Bridging the Disconnect between Leadership Theory and Practice

Bridging the Disconnect between Leadership Theory and Practice | New Leadership | Scoop.it
If you haven’t read the book Leadership BS: Fixing Workplaces and Careers One Truth at a Time, by Stanford business school professor Jeffrey Pfeffer, you are missing out. Pfeffer lambasts the leadership development industry — including business schools, human resource departments, authors, and leadership programs and coaches — for being clueless about the harsh political realities of the workplace, and for promoting behaviors that are aspirational rather than practical.

In a down-to-earth, take-no-prisoners manner, Pfeffer shares research and stories to back up his claim that leaders looking to advance their own careers should do the opposite of what most leadership experts tell them, and that “the qualities we actually select for and reward in most workplaces are precisely the ones that are unlikely to produce leaders who are good for employees or, for that matter, for long-term organizational performance.”

Cheap politics does not create genuine admiration.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 21, 2015 9:07 PM

The reason I chose this resource is that, from a reflective perspective, I found most of the described traits to be accurate in characterizing admirable leaders. I thing that this is something that I could revisit frequently as an administrator. "Am I fulfilling and living up to these qualities that I've admired in the leadership I've experienced" is a reflective question that I need to continually ask myself. During my military service, I witnessed a wide range of leadership styles and each left a lasting impact - both positively and negatively. Ultimately, inspiring the best performance from subordinates is a goal that is not always easily achieved. It is advisable to be very aware of actions and tendencies that define one's leadership style and how it is perceived. 

KaylaHeinlein's curator insight, October 25, 2015 9:26 AM

Great article.  I loved how the focus was on being humble, positive, listening, take meaningful action, grow new leaders, etc.  This is a great article to look back at throughout my career.

6 Hallmarks of High Performing Teams. #performancemanagement | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Great teams exhilarate -- what sets them apart? High performing teams seem to generate their own energy and elevate everyone on the team to their full potential. Despite achieving more, working on these teams is less taxing -- the workday feels shorter and less frustrating. So what sets high performing teams apart and why aren’t all teams so successful and fun?

Create a Safe Space: Four Steps to Lead Your Team to Win

Create a Safe Space: Four Steps to Lead Your Team to Win | New Leadership | Scoop.it

As leaders, we are often challenged to engage employees, and while we understand the benefits of employee engagement, we are at times unsure how to engage employees. As a coach, I am able to engage clients by making them feel safe.  As the client experiences the safety of the coaching space, they gain confidence in the space, they begin to trust me and they freely share their challenges. In the safety of the space, clients blossom, they dream up big ideas and are able to confront their fears as they move towards their goals. When I lead a work-team, I use the same principles of a coaching session to engage employees. I declare my office a safe space and encourage employees to use the space to discuss concerns, take a breather from work, vent about an issue, plan work, or to challenge the status quo. Employees use the space tentatively at first, and as they develop trust in the space and me, both employees and I begin to see the payoffs in performance and employee engagement.

The paradoxes of creative leadership

The paradoxes of creative leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Creative leadership is rich with paradoxes. Creative leaders are driven by their internal passion and purpose, yet they also have an externally oriented, explorative mindset. Creative leaders lead from the front by envisioning a better future, pointing the way and setting an aspiration, yet they achieve this by orchestrating a creative team, often leading from behind to bring out the best in others.

The 4 Pillars of Better Leadership

The 4 Pillars of Better Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
According to the U.S. Small Business Association, nearly 540,000 new small businesses start each month. While half of these new ventures will celebrate a five-year anniversary, 70 percent of them will fail within 10 years.

While much has been made about a difficult economy over the last eight years, the fact is most businesses fail not because of a poor business climate or complicated external market forces. They fail because of poor internal leadership.

Struggling small business? Review your leadership!

donhornsby's curator insight, October 22, 2015 8:49 AM

(From the article): A good leader doesn’t lead from behind a desk or an email account. A good leader leads from the front, interacting with staff, holding them accountable, making sure they know they’re valued and by paying attention to detail.


It’s a lot of work, but nobody said leadership was easy or without sacrifice. It will mean missed dinners with the family, losing out on occasional weekends and more than a little stress. But if you follow these tips, it might also mean moving your business from the huge pile of failure statistics to the much smaller pile of success statistics.

Good article Key insight for me is "IT people are people first, technicians later." and it's not just IT people It's people first period

Change leadership is first and foremost about people Change management is an oxymoron. What we can manage is processes, policies, procedures, practices, and systems.
