4 Reasons Great Leaders Admit Their Mistakes

4 Reasons Great Leaders Admit Their Mistakes | New Leadership | Scoop.it
You can never go at leadership alone. Unfortunately, too many leaders allow their egos and hidden agendas to stand in the way of doing what is best for the people and organizations they serve. Leaders are not responsible for always being right. However, they are accountable to see that problems become opportunities and solutions are proactively found so that momentum is never lost. They should know who the subject matter experts are on their team(s) and empower them during times of crisis and change so that the organization is not blindsided by the unexpected. As any great leader will tell you, they have made many mistakes along the way. They will admit that it was the collective insight from bad decisions that taught them invaluable lessons – and how to see opportunities in everything and anticipate the unexpected more quickly. Successful leaders are transparent enough with themselves and others to admit their wrong doings so that those around them can also benefit from their learnings. They call this wisdom and many leaders lack it – because they are too proud to recognize mistakes as valuable learning moments for themselves and others.

How to Frame Goals to Increase Motivation

How to Frame Goals to Increase Motivation | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Most of us have set goals for ourselves before, whether it’s losing weight, saving money or training for a marathon. Goals help us to focus our minds on achieving what we set out to do. We know that setting goals makes us more likely to attain what we want. But there are differences in what motivates people to achieve goals, which has implications for managers who have to use them to generate a behavioural response, either in customers or employees.

Do We Always Need Purpose?

Do We Always Need Purpose? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Like most executives, I travel a lot. This can mean a lot of planning, anxiety, frustration and tiredness. In the past, I would return from a trip in a bad mood, having had no time for myself, and plunge back into work and family life. I’d moan and complain, creating a ruckus if my tea wasn’t just right.

(From the article): Steamrollers can destroy your organization’s culture if you don’t get them to stop behaving badly. You may have glossed over these issues in the past – “that’s just how they are” – so be disciplined in the future about giving a balanced rating and meting out consequences.

Restoring Humanity to Leadership

Restoring Humanity to Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
With recovery underway in many advanced economies, money is surging back into leadership development after the down-years of the recession. In 2013, companies spent an estimated worldwide total of US$45.5 billion on education for leaders at all levels. But a raft of recent statistics show that these whopping investments are failing to move the needle where it matters most — from employee engagement to public trust. Even as they keep the billions pouring in, a majority of executives claim to have lost faith in leadership development altogether.

This situation brings two questions to mind: Exactly what accounts for the disappointment in leadership development programmes? And if they really do not work, why do companies keep buying, and buying into, them? In a recent paper “Can Business Schools Humanize Leadership?”, Gianpiero and Jennifer Petriglieri, professors of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD, argue that it is precisely the most inadequate features of these programmes that prove irresistible to companies, executives and educators alike.

The Petriglieris argue that what they term “the leadership industrial complex” largely peddles a decontextualised, depersonalised view of leadership that has little relation with what leading looks and feels like in the real world. Clients, for their part, embrace the lofty but empty rhetoric of leadership skills and tools as a convenient distraction from the difficult conflicts leaders must navigate on a daily basis. Though the authors offer no easy, straightforward solutions — and in fact argue against such simple prescriptions — they do point the way to a more generative way of thinking about and developing leadership.

“You could call us optimistic critics, or sceptical optimists,” Gianpiero says.

Les leçons finissent généralement par toute se recouper.   À force de se les faire présenter de différentes façons, le message fini par passer :-)  Un des messages de base: le leadership ne s'apprend pas dans les livres mais sur le terrain, avec les gens qui nous entourent.  Le leadership est plus du domaine du savoir-être que du savoir...

 

Basically, the messages beyond all those articles written on leadership are about the same: you don't learn leadership in books; you experiment it in real life with real people.  Finally, leadership is more about "beeing" than "knowing" ...

When Business Greed and Arrogance Combine

When Business Greed and Arrogance Combine | New Leadership | Scoop.it
The growing conversation about income inequality and the rise of shareholder discontent is fueled by decisions that show an utter disdain for reality.


Consider the case of Radio Shack. In the midst of what most recognize as an epic failure, top tier managers were being rewarded for incompetence! Not only was senior salary protected but a bonus was given to top execs. Last year, according to a report in The Motley Fool, the company agreed to pay Chief Executive Officer Joe Magnacca a $500,000 bonus to hang in there through 2015.
