How Unethical Behavior Becomes Habit

The road to hell descends gradually.

 

When a former client’s secretary was arrested for embezzlement years before his own crimes were uncovered, Bernie Madoff commented to his own secretary, “Well, you know what happens is, it starts out with you taking a little bit, maybe a few hundred, a few thousand. You get comfortable with that, and before you know it, it snowballs into something big.

The Best Leaders Are Insatiable Learners

The Best Leaders Are Insatiable Learners | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Nearly a quarter century ago, at a gathering in Phoenix, Arizona, John W. Gardner delivered a speech that may be one of the most quietly influential speeches in the history of American business — a text that has been photocopied, passed along, underlined, and linked to by senior executives in some of the most important companies and organizations in the world. I wonder, though, how many of these leaders (and the business world more broadly) have truly embraced the lessons he shared that day.

5 Ways to be a Leader, Not a Manager

5 Ways to be a Leader, Not a Manager | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever wondered about the difference between a manager and a leader?

donhornsby's curator insight, September 5, 2014 10:47 AM

(From the article): “It’s very easy to praise somebody. It’s easy to give somebody a raise or a good review.” It can be much harder, however, to have the tough conversations.

While admitting that this might sound like a harsh thing to say, Jennifer pointed out that not everyone does an outstanding job all the time. “You’ve got to tell them, and then you’ve got to move on,” she acknowledged.

The Takeaway

Her parting words for the group were filled with encouragement to strive to be a leader and not just a manager. “Learn to inspire and motivate as opposed to dictate,” she said in closing. “At the end of the day, good leaders often don’t do the work but they make you feel like they did.”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 5, 2014 12:36 PM

Having experienced the overwhelming pace in School, I think that we lose our way and it becomes easier to manage than lead.

 

I just spent time listening to person who struggles with processing information. It is hard work to listen carefully, not for answers, but just to listen. This makes leading hard work. I could have managed the situation by finishing sentences, which I occasionally did. Listening to children, employees, co-workers, etc. is hard work when we just listen.

(From the article): As leaders we are always choosing and the choices we make may come from the idea that we must have the best job, the most prestigious title, the newest technology.

But in reality our deepest pleasures almost always come from the simplest source and life is asking us to choose – to choose with great insight because when we do we make it right.

 

So what do you choose?

Why Delegation Is Not About You

Why Delegation Is Not About You | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The common management lingo, “how to delegate” has always bugged me. Why? Because we usually talk about delegation as though it’s something you do TO other people, not FOR them. When reframed correctly, delegation isn’t just a productivity skill you gain personally (which it is), it’s also a development skill you deploy to help others achieve greater value to the organization

(From the article): Feedback serves the purpose of enabling another to know where we stand and how they can grow.  After that, it’s up to them if they choose to listen, act or react.  Be a leader who gives others your best by giving feedback with heart and in service of them being and doing their very best.

Three Overlooked Areas To Improve Employee Well-Being

Three Overlooked Areas To Improve Employee Well-Being | New Leadership | Scoop.it

“Be kind for everyone is fighting a hard battle.” -Plato

 

I use this statement to anchor the beginning of each day. It reminds me that my individual challenges are but one of the many that will bump up against another’s in a day and they are no more special than anyone else’s. My professional experience as a corporate manager and coach have shaped my belief that a collective adoption of this credo would go a long way to decrease incivil behavior in the workplace. Additionally, it could create a greater sense of collective responsibility towards producing high quality and high-level work without sacrificing another person’s sense of well-being in the process. Incivility is described as behavior that is disrespectful, undermines others dignity and self-esteem, creates unnecessary suffering and resembles dishonesty, exclusion, silencing and intimidation (1)

The Trick to Successful Employee Engagement

The Trick to Successful Employee Engagement | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The trick is to be inclusive.

 

Not only be inclusive, but actively encourage and enable everyone to work together. This advice might sound simple and obvious, but you’d be surprised how often this is ignored. It’s important to educate all employees on this subject, because more often than not, it’s them that are working in teams with other employees. A manager might not have the time or ability to make sure everyone is being treated equally, and everyone is participating in the team. Every employee should understand what happens to people when they are left out of a group, and also how important certain words can be for employee engagement.
