4 Questions to Ask When Thinking of Thought Leadership

4 Questions to Ask When Thinking of Thought Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Far too many people dismiss thought leadership as a buzzword devoid of real substance, which is unfortunate -- because it’s not just a buzzword. But, what is it really? When should you consider using it, and how do you balance the talent and experience of your team with the humility and authenticity that today’s audiences demand?

Are you aligned with your company's principles? 


(From the article): When making critical decisions, it is important to ensure that they align with your organization’s overall principles.  Many times the easy decision is not the right one when you take a hard look at your company’s values and direction.  Be willing to look beyond popular opinion to make a principled decision that ultimately benefits the organization as a whole, versus a particular individual or group of individuals.

Innovative Leaders Transformation Model

Innovative Leaders Transformation Model | New Leadership | Scoop.it
“Today any company that isn’t rethinking its direction at least every few years—as well as constantly adjusting to changing contexts—and then quickly making significant operational changes is putting itself at risk. But, as any number of business leaders can attest, the tension between needing to stay ahead of increasingly fierce competition and needing to deliver this year’s results can be overwhelming.”

— John P. Kotter, “Accelerate!”, Harvard Business Review, November 2012
Accelerating change continues to impact every facet of business. To thrive long term, business leaders must make implementing change a core competency in order to capitalize on our changing world instead of merely trying to adapt to it.

donhornsby's curator insight, November 23, 2015 4:47 PM

(From the article): It pays to be aware of your own habits, despite their tendency to slip by unnoticed. Pay close attention to how your actions affect the members of your team, especially in a tight-knit startup setting. Work to make positive changes to your approach over time. If you’re ever in doubt how your actions are affecting others, simply ask them face-to-face; if you’ve built an environment of mutual trust, your employees won’t be afraid to tell you when one of your habits or routines is getting in the way of their productivity.

The Most Cost Effective Way To Engage Your People

The Most Cost Effective Way To Engage Your People | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Many books have properly outlined the power of effective praise and recognition. From Nelson’s books to Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson’s New One Minute Manager (and its predecessor) to Michael Lee Stallard’s Connection Culture (my favorite), the inherent need to create an approach and culture that validates your people is powerful and proven.

And for all the note card, bell ringing, and public praise methods, each author agrees on the most simple and cost effective method for engaging their people.

The simple “Thank You.”

Use a “Coach-Approach” to Help Leaders Achieve Mastery

Use a “Coach-Approach” to Help Leaders Achieve Mastery | New Leadership | Scoop.it
After attending a training session, most leaders have the best intentions of applying their new learning toward becoming a more effective leader.  However, once returning to daily job responsibilities it’s all too easy to slip back into old, established behaviors. For this reason, it’s important for a leader to dedicate time for the practice, assessment, and strengthening of new leadership skills.  To increase leadership effectiveness even more, they should follow up the training experience with targeted leadership coaching. Research shows training followed by coaching results in higher leader performance than training alone.

Want to get the most out of your leadership training investment? Here is a three-step process using coaching to support learning that helps leaders  master new skills after they complete a training program.

Why Your Company's Culture Is Crucial to Its Value

Why Your Company's Culture Is Crucial to Its Value | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Your company culture differentiates your business from that of your competitors and influences the behavior and performance of your employees. But while you're immersed in it every day, you may not be fully aware of just how important it is.

A recent study of nearly a thousand CEOs and CFOs from U.S. companies casts new light on this subject. In the study, "Corporate Culture: Evidence from the Field," 91 percent of the executives surveyed said they believe improving their company culture would increase their company's value. John Graham and Campbell Harvey from Duke University and Shiva Rajgopal from Columbia Business School conducted the research.

More than 50 percent of the executives said corporate culture is one of the top-three drivers of company value, while an additional 27 percent said it is in the top five. Culture is so important, in fact, that 48 percent of survey respondents said they would walk away from a merger or acquisition if the company they were bidding on had an unappealing culture. Others said a unsatisfactory culture would cause them to lower an offer by up to 30 percent.

4 Leadership Lessons from Nine-Year-Olds

4 Leadership Lessons from Nine-Year-Olds | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Five years ago, I became a blogger. With 45 years of business experience as a foundation, I began sharing personal reflections and contemporary insights on leadership – fully aware my content would not matter a damn had I not kept pace with the pulse of the new economy, and the changing dynamics of customers and the workforce.

More than one hundred blog posts later, one post stood out from the rest. Not because it was critically acclaimed or that it generated thousands of hits. The notion of that particular post went beyond business leadership. It was lesson in life; a lesson that did not come from me, but from a Grade 4 class of 9-year olds.

5 Easy Ways to Build a Thriving Work Culture

5 Easy Ways to Build a Thriving Work Culture | New Leadership | Scoop.it
I worked as a golf caddy in middle school and learned a lot about business from my boss, Rob.

One day Rob was angry about something an employee did (not even a caddy) and decided it would be wise to take out his anger at a group of 13-year-old caddies. About 30 seconds into his tirade, a prominent member of the golf club asked him, “Rob, have a second?”

Right before he spun on his heel, we saw his face morph into a fake smile as though nothing had ever happened. We were terrified for the rest of the year whenever he was happy, expecting he would snap at any given moment.

Creating a healthy work culture needs to start with mutual trust, and when I was a caddy, there was no healthy culture because there was no trust. The company was riddled with high employee turnover, gossiping, and bad service because few employees were engaged with their job.

5 Ways to Increase Your Visibility

5 Ways to Increase Your Visibility | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It’s quite simple: being visible helps you achieve your goals.

People prefer to work with people they’re familiar with. That familiarity doesn’t have to be based on impressive and daring feats; it can come from simple exposure. You, your name, and your work need to be visible to your peers, to your boss, to your boss’s boss, to casual observers, to industry experts, to anyone who goes looking for you or your area of expertise on the Internet, etc.

Here are five simple ways to increase your visibility.
