How Leaders Can Create an Epic Mindset with a 4 Step Approach

How Leaders Can Create an Epic Mindset with a 4 Step Approach | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A recent client was discussing a problem with an employee, and how he would tackle the issues in their next one-to-one meeting.  As the leader, my client was absolutely right to deal with poor performance and find a way forward which would solve the problem one way or another.  My client was very uncomfortable with the whole process though, until he finally managed to develop a strategy he would use in the meeting to be able to give the employee space to raise issues and find solutions himself, and if he didn’t, his plan “b” was to find ways to describe outcomes which show the employee what was required in a forward thinking way.    What the leader did in this interaction was change his mindset about the meeting insofar as the purpose turned from giving negative feedback, to one which was about raising performance.

(From the article): Autocrats can’t be wrong. They can’t be embarrassed.  They can’t ask dumb questions.    That’s a lot of pressure!  I have to say it felt very good to be relieved of that burden when I made my choice.


It’s that “freedom to be human” that will set you apart  – and earn you a loyal and enthusiastic team that will follow you to the top of any mountain, no matter how high.

since the only constant is change, determining when the change is significant as opposed to insignificant brings on a conversation about leaders who can set the appropriate direction at the appropriate pace and monitoring/measuring the outcomes of the actions. i ask you... Isn't that requiring leadership at all levels, not just high levels?

Inspired by his post, MTCA.co created this infographic to walk you through the lifecycle of the disengaged employee; it can serve as a roadmap for managers to recognize the signs of sinking employee morale before it is too late.

Andrew Spence's curator insight, August 4, 2015 7:27 AM

Is everything you learnt about change in the "predigital" era now defunct?


In my view, no. One thing we have in common with the industrial age is our reliance on people - and we still have some left.  When I last checked, they still have beating hearts and crave meaningful work.


However, we need to re-think quickly as move move into the digital age.  


Here are 5 areas that can help make internal change efforts more effective and enduring :-

1. Provide just-in-time feedback

2. Personalize the experience

3. Sidestep hierarchy

4. Build empathy, community, and shared purpose

5. Demonstrate progress

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, August 20, 2015 5:38 PM

It's time to modernize 'change'! Great article by McKinsey saying that organisations can unlock the power of digital tools to drive internal change initiatives. 


For example to

1. Provide just-in-time feedback

2. Personalize the experience

3. Sidestep hierarchy

4. Build empathy, community, and shared purpose

5. Demonstrate progress


Makes sense doesn't it?!

Leadership is About Letting People Fail

Leadership is About Letting People Fail | New Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’ve had a good, healthy relationship with a counselor / therapist in the past you’ll recognize these strategies already. A therapist may see the problem, or behavior that’s causing it, but they don’t tell you how to stop creating the problem because that’s your job.

In order to truly help anyone you’re mentoring, you need to have the same mindset as a good therapist; it isn’t your responsibility to fix everything for your mentee, it’s your job to help them find their own path forward.

We all know of leaders who start off well, but squander that opportunity. What happens along the way? They let the power go to their heads, or they take advantage of their position and decide to further their own interests. They veer off course, and ultimately fail to behave with dignity and respect.

Why Some Teams Perform Better than Others: The Secret Ingredient & Motivation

Why Some Teams Perform Better than Others: The Secret Ingredient & Motivation | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Culture defines any business, yet it's also one of the hardest things to manage. In this extract from her TED Book, Margaret Heffernan describes the important, often-overlooked element necessary to build an effective, efficient organization: social capital."

     ...Having a high aggregate intelligence or just one or two superstars wasn’t critical. The groups that surfaced more and better solutions shared three key qualities.    First, they gave one another roughly equal time to talk. This wasn’t monitored or regulated, but no one in these high-achieving groups dominated or was a passenger. Everyone contributed and nothing any one person said was wasted.   The second quality ...was social sensitivity: these individuals were more tuned in to one another, to subtle shifts in mood and demeanor. They scored more highly on a test called Reading the Mind in the Eyes, which is broadly considered a test for empathy.  The third distinguishing feature was that the best groups included more women, perhaps because that made them more diverse, or because women tend to score more highly on tests for empathy. What this (and much more) research highlights is just how critical the role of social connectedness can be.       ...In large organizations, ...A functional head will challenge a regional head and then they will reverse roles. This way, they learn the exigencies and contingencies of both positions; they start to see common themes, ways they can help and support each other, and empathy grows.

Social capital, here, features the ability to let go of a singular perspective and take on the perspective of another.  Here it is the key way to expand understanding and take on a system perspective more fully. The complexities of a system become accessible in empathy and social capital investment.  Business intelligence, in this way includes metrics and so much more.  ~  Deb

5 Principles of Crisis Preparedness

5 Principles of Crisis Preparedness | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Given the speed at which information now flows, companies operating in the 1990s had it easy when it came to crisis communications. After all, bad news could sometimes be contained. Companies could reach important stakeholders, shareholders and partners by phone and manage the message. Journalists had to wait for the printing press to finish before their stories were published.

It’s not just the rise of the Internet that has changed the way people communicate; the evolution of social media has fundamentally altered the way companies respond to crisis.
