7 First Steps to Increase Employee Engagement | New Leadership | Scoop.it
As competition for talent heats up, one of the greatest challenges companies face today revolves around employee engagement. Employees are the core of every business. Even when all the strategic pieces of your business fit together, disgruntled and uninterested employees will lead to deep problems.

These questions that will lead to an understanding of your employee’s mindset:

Are your employees passionate about their jobs?
Do they come to the office happy and eager to work?
If your answer to either of those questions is “No,” or if you are unsure about the answer, you probably have disengaged employees. If you are coming to the sober realization that you do indeed have a disengaged workforce, there are simple steps you can take now to fix the problem.

The Best Leaders Allow Themselves to Be Persuaded

The Best Leaders Allow Themselves to Be Persuaded | New Leadership | Scoop.it
When we think of great leaders, certain characteristics come to mind: They have confidence in their abilities and conviction in their beliefs. They “trust their gut,” “stay the course,” and “prove others wrong.” They aren’t “pushovers,” and they certainly don’t “flip-flop.” But this archetype is terribly outdated. Having spent three years studying many of the world’s most successful leaders for my new book, Persuadable, I’ve learned one surprising thing they have in common: a willingness to be persuaded.

Twenty-first-century business requires agility–from teams, from institutions, and from leaders–and that agility comes from synchronized leadership. Despite the radical change in the environment, many institutions still cling to Twentieth-century management models. Those Industrial Age management models are ill-suited to guide leaders in the Information Age.

By now, everyone’s heard 70% of the workforce is checked out. That’s why employee engagement remains all the rage among management fads. Yet sadly, many of the fixes being offered amount to little more than superficial techniques that don’t fundamentally change how people experience their workplaces, and more importantly, their bosses.

How Strong Cultures Help Companies Win Talent — and Customers, Too

How Strong Cultures Help Companies Win Talent — and Customers, Too | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Leaders tend to focus on the internal benefits of culture — the ability to retain talent and improve performance.

But the benefits of a strong culture also have huge external benefits, and are the primary driver not only in deciding with whom to do business, but also how long the relationship will last.

These are the findings of Beyond the Brand: Why Business Decision Makers Buy into Strong Cultures, by the Fortune Knowledge Group in collaboration with gyro.

Rewards and Recognition Done Right

Rewards and Recognition Done Right | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Rewards and recognition programs can be an important part of your organization’s incentive plan. However, if they are implemented wrong, they can backfire.

Via donhornsby
Roger Francis's insight:
(From the article): Deliberate the delivery
How you deliver rewards and recognition to employees can stick the landing or crash the landing. Don’t kill the intent. You should think through the delivery with attention to detail. For example, sincerity is key; if it comes from the heart it sticks in the mind. Also remember that “Specificity is a must; general praise leads to a general malaise,” and “Timeliness is critical. Drift creates a rift.” Let R&R drift past the time a praise-worthy event occurred and you create a rift between receipt of the recognition and any potential for associated meaning.

Overcoming Leadership Isolation and the Biases it Creates  

Overcoming Leadership Isolation and the Biases it Creates   | New Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’re like the thousands of leaders I know… you know it’s lonely at the top.

It’s true, whether the top is across a team, department or division of a company. If you lead, it gets lonely.

You lead because of what you know. Those around you need your clarity; they look to you for answers. Those who report to you need your critical perspective and approach.  

Those around you want to know what you know. But what they don’t know is how much you – don’t know. And that’s one of the many factors that create isolation.

Isolation is a condition. It sucks.

Isolation brings stress. And stress makes all of us stupid. No matter how smart we are.

Isolation destroys: Profit. Relationships. Life. Isolation lies at the heart of fatigue.

Isolation creates blind spots. Blind spots create biases.

Biases impact your leadership; Affect your decisions; Cause assumptions; Impair judgment; Limit your outcomes.

Isolation comes at a high cost. But no one recognizes it. No one talks about it. It’s too unpleasant.
