Let's settle this. Is there an “I” in "team"? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In today’s globally competitive environment, organisations increasingly employ teamwork to ensure employees’ resources and competencies are used to their fullest. A body of research has found that individuals compare themselves to their peers and that this comparison influences their wellbeing.


And when people interact with each other in teamwork settings, they develop a shared understanding of their environment, including how they interpret their leader’s behaviours. This article looks at how these comparisons are made with regard to perceptions of leadership within the team.

Leadership Styles Are Often Why CEOs Get Fired

Leadership Styles Are Often Why CEOs Get Fired | New Leadership | Scoop.it
It’s a long-held belief that CEOs get fired (or forced to resign or retire under pressure) because of “current financial performance.” But one of my past studies found that’s wrong. My team and I interviewed 1,087 board members from 286 organizations that fired, or otherwise forced out, their chief executive. And we found that most CEOs get fired for “soft issues.” Thirty-one percent of CEOs got fired for poor change management, 28% for ignoring customers, 27% for tolerating low performers, 23% for denying reality and 22% for too much talk and not enough action.

Leading from the Middle

Leading from the Middle | New Leadership | Scoop.it

All leaders lead from the Middle. We are all accountable to someone. A boss, a manager, a board of directors, our stock owners, and, of course, our customers. However, for some of us, we choose to lead outside of positional leadership. We don’t want to be managers or the CEO. However, we still want to lead. Leadership of this type takes on a different meaning.

What History Can Teach Us About Leadership, Good, Bad, And Ugly | Task & Purpose

What History Can Teach Us About Leadership, Good, Bad, And Ugly | Task & Purpose | New Leadership | Scoop.it
I believe the easiest way to explain leadership is through examples. History is rich with illustrations of all kinds of leadership, both good and bad. Personally, I gravitate toward the military kind, because that’s what I know and have dealt with my entire adult life. Military leadership is also some of the most dynamic and dramatic, because it can often mean the difference between life and death, victory and defeat.

The Civil War is rife with examples of spectacular leadership failures, particularly amongst the northern forces.  Most historians agree that President Abraham Lincoln was cursed with poor generals for the majority of the war, who handed loss after loss to him until General Ulysses Grant took over the Army of the Potomac in 1864. General John Pope, General Irvin McDowell, General Joe Hooker, and General Dan Sickles are but a few shining examples of colossal failures for the Union cause at multiple points during the war.
