5 Ways to Become a More Collaborative Leader

5 Ways to Become a More Collaborative Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it
In today’s hyper-connected world, the kind of leaders who climbed the corporate ladder with a “command and control” style of management can have a hard time adjusting to today’s new workplace realities. Businesspeople are working more collaboratively today than ever before – not just with their colleagues, but with suppliers, customers, and other external agencies, too. And because global teams are more dispersed, there’s a reliance on tools and social networks that can put connectivity on steroids.

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, December 10, 2015 7:41 AM

1. Build to the Culture
More important than technical skills and is whether people fit in the culture you want for your team.


2. Strategy and Execution
This ability to execute on a plan is an essential, but often undervalued, part of achieving results in any organization. Great execution can elevate a flawed plan; at the same time, poor operational capabilities can easily sink a great set of ideas.


3. Fill Your Blind Spots

A leader has to  surround himself with people who counterbalanced my shortcomings with unique skillsets.


4. Diversity Matters

Diversity in race, culture, gender, educational background, and many other parameters is a matter of good business management.


5. Follow Kenny Rogers

Kenny Roger’s proverbial gambling dilemma of “knowing when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em”.

Leadership is Action

Leadership is Action | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I find it interesting seeing people wanting to be leaders like it is the first-place position in a race. Each one is vying for that coveted position to be able to lead and tell people what to do. A position that has an aura of power and authority that is bestowed upon them, that enables them to give commands that their people have to follow and carry out.

Such demonstration of intense focus to gain power is akin to purchasing a house, thinking that once the house is purchased it is the end of the journey. But that is far from the truth. While the initial act of purchasing a house requires a huge financial outlay, the work that comes after that is even bigger and more demanding. After the purchase one has to tend to the needs of maintaining a property, like mowing the lawn, cleaning the gutters, trimming the bushes, planting and caring for the plants, raking leaves, shoveling the driveway during winters and the overall upkeep of the house inside and out. All the ensuing activities are often not clear until the purchase is completed because the intense focus of acquiring it shifts the focus to the house itself.

Building Leadership Integrity

Want to be a better leader? If so, forget trying to be so charismatic. Instead, make sure you follow through on your promises and practice what you preach. In a word, become the kind of straight shooter employees love to work for.

4 Overlooked Perks that Every Employee Actually Wants

4 Overlooked Perks that Every Employee Actually Wants | New Leadership | Scoop.it
You hear a lot these days about the importance of offering killer employee perks. That's because nearly 80% of employees care more about the perks they’re given than what their actual salary is, according to Glassdoor.

That being the case, in order for your business to attract top talent and land the best candidates, it’s critical that you offer an extremely competitive benefits package as a part of your recruitment strategies. No, that competitive package shouldn’t include the term “unlimited vacation”— something we now know to be the nicest way to say, “you have to work all the time.”

Here are four things it should include:

Mandela:The art of the authentic leader

Mandela:The art of the authentic leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it
At a time of incredible social change, there is much talk about the leadership traits required to drive positive outcomes for humanity. But, inspired by Nelson Mandela’s legacy, we believe that the focus on leadership at this time of volatility and uncertainty is somewhat misplaced – the real challenge is to inspire humanity towards following a path to peace and prosperity for all. 

And Mandela’s story provides insight into how building and sustaining a follower-driven movement can be achieved.

Today’s Best Leaders Are Reflective and Vulnerable

Today’s Best Leaders Are Reflective and Vulnerable | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Lagging performance is among the most glaring indications something is awry in an organization. Then there are the quieter, less splashy but still foreboding signals: a culture of distrust, the uncomfortable undiscussables, staff disengagement, disorganization — all of which indicate a disconnect that could cost a business tremendously if not addressed.
 
When confronted with a problem, or better yet, before it becomes a problem, leadership consultants Bob Anderson and Bill Adams recommend organizational leaders first turn inward to drive lasting change.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 8, 2015 9:20 AM

(From the article): The harsh reality of leadership is that people choose who to follow, despite hierarchy and formal authority. Therefore, follow-worthy leaders have earned the right to lead others by first showing strength in the daily leadership of themselves. Doing so allows them to offer their very best while leading everyone to success.

3 Ways to Get Millennials Leadership Ready Today

3 Ways to Get Millennials Leadership Ready Today | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Becoming a leader has always been a sign of career advancement; but most importantly it’s a way to make a real impact.

Collectively, Millennials consist of a generation of people who demand to feel fulfilled by the work that they do. As a Millennial leader, I can speak from experience to say, we want to make a difference in our world and expect the organizations we work for, to provide these opportunities. At the same time, we’re also impatient, anxious to do things on our own, and always feel like we have something to prove. In these desires lies one of our biggest opportunities; to become driven, kind, confident, intelligent, ethical… leaders.

On Leadership, Suffering and The Sacrificial Leader

On Leadership, Suffering and The Sacrificial Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it
There is not one leader reading this that hasn’t struggled with the mystery of suffering or wrestled with the mastery of personal sacrifice.

These are universal and timeless concepts—regardless of background, education, economic status, etc. But what I’ve found over the past 30 years as a student of leadership is the selfless commitment to take pains with them is firmly embedded in the footings of every real leader’s platform.

Every real leader puts deliberate thought into how their commitment of the will in these areas is going to shape their behavior…their actions and the impact they have on others.”
