Criticism is criticism and that is important to understand. It helps us think about the way we present the criticism and make it work for the better. Are we moving the person forward is critical.

Ideas for a People-Centric Workplace

Ideas for a People-Centric Workplace | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A people-centric organization emphasizes relationships, connectedness, context, growth, openness, trust and courage. We need to see more of these elements working together in our businesses today – of all sizes.  While these elements are not new, they are in short supply in businesses around the globe. We are seeing a dominate force of outdated leadership styles that are still fundamentally rooted in mechanistic, command-and-control management practices and beliefs about people

Dan Biles's curator insight, February 25, 2014 8:36 AM

The leader in a business is responsible for everything within his or her organisation – for the development of the proposition; for the success and wellbeing of the staff; for every challenge, trial and tribulation. In order to keep up the respect and motivation of your staff, it’s important to maintain a mindset of responsibility and care for your team at all times.

Why Your Change Needs a Word of Mouth Strategy

Why Your Change Needs a Word of Mouth Strategy | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Remember when the ‘water cooler conversation’ used to mean sidebar conversations in the break room? The grapevine was the extracurricular that could surely be tamed with more frequent communication. Today, the grapevine can no longer be “managed”. It grows based on word of mouth via technology or in person. You can influence and contribute to it, but it can’t be programmed or planned from the top down. Word of mouth grows based on the decisions and interest of individuals and their willingness to recommend and engage.

Leadership Without Presumption: Lessons From Eisenhower

Leadership Without Presumption: Lessons From Eisenhower | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Intellectuals scoffed at Eisenhower during his time in office. Now his leadership style seems like genius.

John Michel's curator insight, February 18, 2014 7:55 AM

Today, Eisenhower’s consistent, incremental progress and drive to get things done seems less like the work of a simple minded military man and more like the work of political genius. Eisenhower was a good leader because he knew how to be political and get things done while remaining humble and, more importantly, human.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, February 18, 2014 8:56 AM

Excellent Scoop John!  The whole post is wonderful, and here is my favorite section:


4. There are smarter people out there


Eisenhower had the guts to admit he didn’t know everything. It made him humble and it’s why he became a successful leader. In his book, At Ease: Stories I Tell My Friends, he advises, “Always try to associate yourself with and learn as much as you can from those who know more than you do, who do better than you, who see more clearly than you.”


It’s shopworn advice, but it’s something many leaders forget in the day-to-day. Leaders need to stop protecting their egos and learn from whomever they can.

Creating a culture of innovation to be better than the rest

Creating a culture of innovation to be better than the rest | New Leadership | Scoop.it

ompanies are facing an increasingly competitive environment, having to tackle smaller profit margins, more demanding customers and a growing international competition. For many, the only way to respond to this challenge is to innovate and re-create their business in order to grow. Even though most corporate leaders are aware of this, many are at loss when asked how to identify the next new innovation and business. By expensive market research? By meeting extensively with clients? By hiring third party consultants?

 

In truth the answer could lie much closer than you think. The greatest ideas can often come from within your own company, from the people that deliver value to your clients every day in an effort to differentiate your company from the rest. Look at your employees first.

Culture’s Role In Great Communication

Culture’s Role In Great Communication | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Communication is a lot like electricity in that it needs a medium or conduit through which it can flow. In business these media have been summarily dubbed “channels”. Over the past 20 years, the channels have changed a bit. We have seen the rise of email, intranets, forums, video conferencing calls and even chat applets. The more traditional channels are still in use as well, such as: meetings, one-on-one conversations and the occasional hand-written note. The point of all of all of these channels is to find as many ways to move the same communication in order to reinforce the message. The greater and more diverse the channels, the better chance you have at your message being heard in the manner in which you need/want it to be heard. There is another channel that is not always viewed – or at least treated – as a communication channel. It carries more influence than all of the previously mentioned channels and has multiple touch-points for stakeholders. Culture.

We Is Bigger Than You

We Is Bigger Than You | New Leadership | Scoop.it
You may have witnessed it yourself: living clouds created by thousands of starlings flying together, commonly referred to as ‘murmuration’. The way in which all the birds suddenly change direction or speed as if they were a single entity still remains one of nature’s secrets, with most scientists assuming starlings undertake this unique collective motion in order to reduce predation risk. In a similar way, great organizations are more than just the sum of great individuals: organizational strength, progress and resilience are determined by the extent to which individual employees ‘fly together’ as if they were a single entity working towards a common goal.
