How to Understand Your Company’s Genetic Code

How to Understand Your Company’s Genetic Code | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I met with a CEO recently who was disappointed in her company’s most recent employee engagement numbers. A year earlier, they ran an employee engagement survey and, based on those results, the company had made efforts to improve engagement. This year’s survey showed the engagement numbers actually went down. Disappointing, indeed.

Experiential Learning is Key to Developing Responsible Leaders

Experiential Learning is Key to Developing Responsible Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Ashridge recently published a study in which senior business leaders were interviewed to understand what kinds of experiences had shaped their leadership practices.  The particular focus was on responsible leadership, which has been gaining much more attention in recent years.

 

Through the interviews, several key themes repeatedly emerged as having been influential in the development of senior leaders' responsible leadership behaviour: 

 

First-hand experiences of pressing social challenges, relationships with people experiencing them and with the people and organisations working effectively to help address them.Early career experience in organisations with a strongly-held culture and values of responsible and sustainable business.Exposure to senior leaders with a passion for this kind of business leadership who act as role-models or mentors.Support to reflect on and make sense of these kinds of experiences and how to act on them in business leadership roles.

 

The participants in this research had all taken part in Business in the Community's Seeiing is Believing program - an initiative in which senior leaders learn first-hand about issues such as alcoholism, homelessness, ex-offenders, youth unemployment and the low carbon economy by going out as a group and meeting people who are affected by these issues, subsequently reflecng on the experience and then reporting on the experience and what it means to the Prince of Wales.

(From the article): As a leader, you are the channel for your organization’s purpose; if it fails to connect with you, it can hardly connect with others. The corporate purpose answers the why for the organization, but what about for you? What is the link between your personal story and the story told about your company? One key to ensuring connection is to focus on your legacy. The legacy of purpose bears your personal imprint as a leader. As you pass it on, it will change but retain its roots in what you contributed and in what earlier generations brought to you. We know that executives today have to deal with all kinds of unpredictable short-term pressures. And yet we believe that as organizations face stronger crosswinds purpose becomes even more important — not less so. That’s because the what and how of business will need to change more frequently in a volatile world. This leaves purpose, the why, as the primary compass for navigating key decisions.

Your Team Can Make or Break Your Business – Here's How

Your Team Can Make or Break Your Business – Here's How | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Oftentimes, as businesses grow, there are going to be some growing pains. And even more often than not, one of the less obvious pains is the slowly disintegrating company culture. When left alone, executives and employees, alike, will start to witness a lot of infringements on company values, because a lot of people either don't understand them or flat out didn't know they existed.

 

To navigate in our rapidly changing world, corporations and organizations everywhere have had to reevaluate the ever expanding, changing and intertwining complexities of their cultures. "We realized that when an organization has a poor perspective on its culture, it has resulted in low energy and mediocre morale that stifles people, and consequently, causes them to not keep up with the demanding pace of today's workforce," says Jason Richmond, CEO of Culturized.

The 7 Best Traits All Authentic Leaders Have in Common

The 7 Best Traits All Authentic Leaders Have in Common | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Knowing who you are and what you stand for is the first step in building a culture of growth and transparency.

Via Kevin Watson, donhornsby
Roger Francis's insight:
(From the article) Authentic leaders may not exhibit all of these characteristics at the same time because authentic leadership involves developing more tolerance for vulnerability, which is difficult. As Dr. Brené Brown says, "Vulnerability is the birthplace of courage." Authentic leadership is courageous leadership because you have to make yourself vulnerable by showing others who you truly are, which also opens you up for criticism.
 Authentic leadership and transparent work culture are one and the same: You cannot have one without the other. A leader does not suddenly become authentic, just as a work culture doesn't one day become transparent. Authentic leadership is a constant journey and commitment, both to your own growth and to the growth of something bigger than yourself.
