The Eight Archetypes of Leadership

The Eight Archetypes of Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Although the ghost of the Great Man still haunts leadership studies, most of us have recognized by now that successful organizations are the product of distributive, collective, and complementary leadership. The first step in putting together such a team is to identify each member of the team’s personality makeup and leadership style, so that strengths and competences can be matched to particular roles and challenges. Getting this match wrong can bring misery to all concerned and cause considerable damage.

The Art of Delegation

The Art of Delegation | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When you hear a boss saying things like “I can never get my people to do what they are told” or “I can’t trust anyone, so I have to do it myself”, or “Nobody can do it as well as me” that is a fair indication that the boss has not learned the art of delegation.  Delegation is more than just asking someone to do something.  It is assigning them responsibility to get the task done and therefore they need to be held accountable.  But that only works if there is a clear understanding of what the task is, when it is to be completed and the importance of the task, or the reason why it needs to be done.

Doing Less, Leading More

Doing Less, Leading More | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Our first accomplishments as professionals are usually rooted in our skill as individual contributors. In most fields we add value in the early stages of our careers by getting things done. We’re fast, we’re efficient, and we do high-quality work. In a word, we’re doers. But when we carry this mindset into our first leadership roles, we confuse doing with leading. We believe that by working longer, harder, and smarter than our team, we’ll inspire by example.  Sometimes this has the desired effect–as Daniel Goleman wrote in his HBR article “Leadership that Gets Results,” this “pacesetting” leadership style “works well when all employees are self-motivated, highly competent, and need little direction or coordination.” But the pacesetting style can also carry a high cost – Goleman notes that it “destroys climate [and] many employees feel overwhelmed by the pacesetter’s demands.”

14 Signs You're Emotionally Intelligent

Annie M Herbert's curator insight, December 16, 2013 9:45 PM

Sounds like a great place to start students understanding what their emotional intelligence is.  Need to convince students that emotional intelligence makes a difference.

What a quote:

"Your ability to concentrate on the work you're doing or your schoolwork, and to put off looking at that text or playing that video game until after you're done ... how good you are at that in childhood turns out to be a stronger predictor of your financial success in adulthood than either your IQ or the wealth of the family you grew up in,"

Another great quote:

When an emotionally intelligent person experiences a failure or setback, he or she is able to bounce back quickly. This is in part because of the ability to mindfully experience negative emotions without letting them get out of control, which provides a higher degree of resilience.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 17, 2013 11:42 AM

What does it mean to be a great leader? I think it is sign of emotional intelligence and so hard to define.

The New “Four Ps”: Everything You Need to Know About Your Customers

The New “Four Ps”: Everything You Need to Know About Your Customers | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Every marketer at some point early on in his/her career learns about the four Ps: Product, Placement, Price, and Promotion.

 

 

While these attributes are universal and timeless truths, there is also something rote about them that I worry keeps marketers thinking in terms of old paradigms. With the radical changes in customer behavior, we need a new set of Ps to help us focus our marketing.
Three of my colleagues (Nora Aufreiter,Kelly Ungerman, and Phillip Dalzell-Payne) have done just that. They’ve laid out four new Ps that capture the ever greater expectations customers have of their brands:

The Best Way for New Leaders to Build Trust

The Best Way for New Leaders to Build Trust | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Many leaders see their role as directing and giving information, rather than gathering.  There is pressure to “come up with the answer” quickly or risk looking weak.  Too many new leaders believe they’re expected to know the answer without input or guidance. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Building trust through involvement, collaboration, and asking their team ...what do you think we should do?  How do you believe this solution will solve the issue?  What factors did you consider to come to this conclusion?

Jeffrey Ross's curator insight, December 20, 2013 10:36 AM

Building TRUST is the true cornerstone to building a successful business.  Internally, we need to be able to trust one another, so that our customers will trust us.

Jerry Busone's curator insight, February 9, 9:20 AM

Trust is HUGE for leading todays workforce. Simply take an interest in your people... reach out them and LISTEN. Put your ego and prejudice away. Author gives 3 great questions to ask :“If you were put into my role tomorrow, what would be the first three things you’d do and why?”  Or: “What are the three biggest barriers to our success, and what are our three biggest opportunities we have?”
