Although home runs and small wins can be safely delegated to star players with proven track records, only executive leadership can make a significant difference in big-bet and junk projects.

Nice matrix for executive decision making in a complex world.

Great list of areas to focus on.  Thanks Roger!

 

From the article:

 

If you’re serious about getting results …If you want to get better business results, look at your communication, both how you present your ideas one-to-many, and how you engage people in conversations.If you’re serious about getting better results, get better in these areas.
donhornsby's curator insight, June 10, 2013 8:00 AM

(From the article):  You’re not connecting at the relationship level. This is one of the biggest obstacles I see getting in the way of managers and executives getting the result they want. They get so focused on the task to be accomplished, and so focused on all they have to do, they end up ignoring the human element of leadership and organizational effectiveness.

They come across as very impersonal, self-focused, and disinterested in others. Since people tend to care about people who care about them, these leaders end up creating situations where others don’t care about what they want, because their “non-followers” don’t feel like the leader cares about them.

 

Are you being too “all business” and impersonal? Do you need to connect more “person to person” in your interactions?

Richard Dillard, PMP, SSBB, ABD 7.1's curator insight, June 22, 2013 1:42 PM

"Never let yourself be pursuaded that any one Great Man, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of America. When America consists of one leader and 158 million followers, it will no longer be America."  Credited to Dwight D. Eisenhower in a September 3, 1976 edition of the National Courier, we could well adjust the quote to the context of this article thus:

 

Never let yourself be pursuaded that any one Great Man or Woman, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of business in America. When Corporations consist of one leader and the rest followers, they will no longer be effective.

 

Borrowing from Marshall and Manuel in "The Light and the Glory", it is the most dangerous kind of corporate self-delusion to think that a CEO, regardless of how capable he or she is, can single-handedly reverse the bent of the organization's defensive culture and increase effectiveness. And when it becomes apparent that the CEO cannot, he or she will become the next in a long line of scapegoats. 

 

In stark contrast to this "one great leader" concept stands the Leadership-Culture-Performance connection.  REAL LEADERS understand and exploit this connection through the impact they have on those who choose to follow their lead.  By modeling visionary behaviors that are congruent with visionary messages and employing prescriptive rather than restrictive leadership strategies, their impact is one that produces greatness in, with and through others.  The result is an entire corporation of leaders who, through constructive relationships, exchange information vital to their individual and collective success.  Only then can their approach to one another in the process of working together create the culture whereby their vision can emerge, their effectiveness can increase and their performance improve.  

 

Indeed!  Companies intent on surviving and thriving will need to move into the Post-CEO World.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 22, 2013 8:02 PM

Las opiniones, las ideas ingeniosas, y la experiencia de un simple líder no son suficientes para conducir exitosamente una organización en los tiempos actuales.   Una encuesta realizada por IBM el 2011 a 3,000 CIOs concluyó que tanto CEOs como CIOs están hoy más alineados que nunca a la estrategia de la organización. El paradigma del CEO exitoso, capaz de transformar la organización y cambiar el mundo, al estilo de Steve Jobs, está dejando paso a un paradigma de liderazgo en equipo. 

Tom Hood's curator insight, June 24, 2013 7:25 AM

I think the CEO is moving from Chief Executive Officer to Chief Engagement Officer and will act more like CEOs of non-profits who are leading networks rather than managing organizations. I like the metaphor of "gardeners" and the idea of "network Leadership" which we are bringing to the CPA profession in our learning and development programs.

Why do seven out of 10 change programmes fail?

Why do seven out of 10 change programmes fail? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Although most change programmes are highly planned and robustly executed, it’s a fact that the majority fail to achieve the objectives set out at the start of the programme. They fail to achieve the result of changing people’s behaviour so, consequently, they also fail to achieve sustainable change. Therefore, no matter what the aspirations, how compelling the business need or how much money is being invested in these initiatives they consistently fail to achieve the transformational shift required by the business.

The Imperatives of an Organization Built for Speed

The Imperatives of an Organization Built for Speed | New Leadership | Scoop.it

 

In Greek mythology, Hydra, an ancient water-serpent had many heads. If one head was cut off, two rapidly grew in its place before another head could be cut off — an energy-sapping disappointment for any opponent trying to overcome it. Regenerative speed made the Hydra formidable. Even Hercules, the legendary Greco-Roman hero, needed his nephew's assistance to win. To sustain a competitive edge, your company's new business development engines must similarly fire on all cylinders at supersonic speed.

 

As a CEO or a leader of a business, how do you build this competency? Measure, motivate and model.

(From the article): Pursuing success is like riding a horse; if you get thrown off, you've got to get right back on it. Rather than dwell on the setback, take some action--right now--that will continue your momentum.
