6 Traits of a Rebel Leader 

6 Traits of a Rebel Leader  | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In preparation to assume new duties this summer, this is the simply complex guidance I would most like to pass to my new organization. Be a rebel that drives revolutionary change, not evolutionary progress. As a senior military leader this may strike you as odd. In traditional thought, the military epitomizes structure and repetition in maintaining the status quo. But this can remain no more in today’s military than in your business. To remain successful, we must strive for positive improvement and a revolution of our processes to become efficiently effective in everything our organizations and we do.

Leadership lessons: Making the grade

Leadership lessons: Making the grade | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Nearly every big company feels that employees must have a grade, that their position must be defined by a number or letter and a title. So in investment banking a new bachelors degree enters as an analyst, gets promoted (or not) to associate, then vice president, managing director, etc. We have grading systems for scientific and engineering personnel, for managers, for secretaries. Of course, tied to grade is (presumably) accountability and (almost certainly) reward

donhornsby's curator insight, April 11, 8:23 AM

(From the article): Keep it simple. Life is complicated enough. Clients and colleagues expect us to be expert enough to keep things simple and easy to follow. It’s a constant struggle to focus more on the story you’re trying to tell than on the slides. But by reminding myself and my team that we’re sitting down with a client to have a nice conversation, we might be able to avoid coming across as the type of people who overly complicate things or act in a way that’s self-important.

John Michel's curator insight, April 11, 7:30 PM

In a world filled with agencies, most of which offer the same services at roughly the same prices, the ultimate difference between success and failure is whether people want to work with your teams or not. It’s the same on the inside.

Employees Want a Lot More From Their Managers

Employees Want a Lot More From Their Managers | New Leadership | Scoop.it


The best managers make a concerted effort to get to know their employees and help them feel comfortable talking about any subject, whether it is work related or not. A productive workplace is one in which people feel safe -- safe enough to experiment, to challenge, to share information and to support one another. In this type of workplace, team members are prepared to give the manager and their organization the benefit of the doubt. But none of this can happen if employees do not feel cared about.

How Leaders Anticipate Sudden Changes

How Leaders Anticipate Sudden Changes | New Leadership | Scoop.it
A car crash involves two crucial moments. First, there is the point of surprise. This is the moment when you consciously realize something is not going the way you had expected. In a car crash, this would be the moment when sweat breaks out and swearing is permitted. The second moment is the point of no return. From this moment onward, impact is inevitable.

Are you able to overcome your own insularity?

Are you able to overcome your own insularity? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Insularity is a real problem today because it often means a resistance to change. Ultimately insularity is a developmental problem. Insular leaders are resistant to input because they have often failed to develop beyond their teenage years. Think of your average teenager; one of the things that characterises many at this age is an unshakeable belief in the veracity of their own point of view. They are archetypally very difficult to advise. They often think they know best and that their parents are simply out of touch. Humility is not common at this age. They have not heard of unconscious incompetence – they don’t know what they don’t know.

Checklist for Emotional Intelligence

Kudos's curator insight, April 10, 10:26 AM

The best leaders are always ones that can relate to their team, keep a calm demeanour in crisis or conflict and work to support their team to help make them better verses dictating or blaming for what is wrong. The best Managers look for what their team does right and recognizes those behaviours and results. Managing people well is much harder then it looks, recognizing people for what they do well and how they contribute is a great place to start to be a good emotional intelligent leader.

Susannah Couper's curator insight, July 6, 7:52 AM

It doesn't matter what business you are in, the common denominator is that we are all human beings who are driven by emotion. Emotional awareness enables us to see the impact that our emotions have on our performance. Emotional management will empower us to make constructive decisions over destructive reactions.

When we hear about unethical executives whose careers and companies have gone down in flames, it’s sadly unsurprising. Hubris and greed have a way of catching up with people, who then lose the power and wealth they’ve so fervently pursued. But is the opposite also true? Do highly principled leaders and their organizations perform especially well?

Por esto, los líderes latinoamericanos (específicamente políticos), no concretan proyectos ni visiones, si observamos detenidamente sus estilos y ejecutorias, realizan por lo menos, el 60% de estas actitudes desmotivadoras

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, April 7, 2:32 PM

This is a great twist on most leadership articles.  I, too, have been guilty of most of these at various times in my career.  I think that as leaders, we are always reflecting and learning.  So, I would add:

 

Does not continue to learn and grow - does not attend staff development with teachers, does not read, is not open to others' ideas.

 

Is unavailable emotionally, intellectually, and physically - in the office with the door closed or off campus.  Meetings are closed to all but a select few.  These meeting are often just a dissemination of the leader's ideas and attendees do not disagree out of fear of reprisal.

 

These are not just demotivators - they can undermine the entire school culture.

(From the article): With the power of social media, it’s easy for leaders to shine a light on the movement. Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge? Who started it? No one remembers, but that person is a true leader. Once you have a movement, share it with colleagues, friends, family and with the world. Remember, as Sivers explains, when the movement begins, others will join willingly, because most people will fear being left alone, if they fail to join the crowd. Again, consider the Ice Bucket Challenge. You had to join or risk being left out of one of the most powerful movements to come along in many years.
