Looking at Leadership as an Inkblot - AMA Playbook

Looking at Leadership as an Inkblot - AMA Playbook | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Is there, as a question of fact, any such thing as a leader?  Is there really any clear way to differentiate a leader from a boss, a manager, a supervisor, or anyone else?

Psychologists sometimes ask their clients to focus on a printed card that has a large black randomly shaped splotch on it.  They ask, “What do you see?”  Friends may do much the same looking at cloud formations in the sky.  Remarkably, familiar shapes and subjects are discerned from amorphous shapes despite the inherent ambiguity of the form itself.  One person sees a dragon, another, a horse, still another, an old man.  The human imagination creates recognizable things where there is only randomness.

To Become a Leader, Think Beyond Your Role

To Become a Leader, Think Beyond Your Role | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Is there a time to think like an owner? Owners consider the broader needs of the business.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 4, 2015 9:30 AM

(From the article): The point is that the process of searching for conviction can be very challenging. The contextual factors and considerations are changing all the time; competitors take significant actions; products get commoditized, and so on. In addition, different people looking at the same situation may come to different points of view about what should be done. To cope with all these factors, leaders need to perform analysis, seek advice and input from others, debate alternatives, and generally ruminate. Much of the time, this process may feel like a grind.

 

While you’re going through this grind, you don’t always need to know exactly what to do; you don’t always need to have the answers. However, as a leader, you do need to be constantly striving to get to a level of conviction on key issues. How do you do this? You and your team need to focus your efforts on taking the necessary steps that will help get you to a sound judgment.

With practice, you will learn to understand yourself better and increasingly learn what conviction feels like. As you search for it, you will get better at gearing your efforts to work in a way that will help you get to that feeling. Leaders don’t look for excuses for why they can’t act like an owner. Instead, they embrace the challenge of ownership and encourage their teams to do the same.

Why Money Is the Worst Way to Motivate Employees

Why Money Is the Worst Way to Motivate Employees | New Leadership | Scoop.it

One of the most tried-and-true techniques for motivating employees turns out to often have the opposite effect. Bosses have long offered workers financial bonuses for doing better work. This system of incentivizing workers worked beautifully when only mechanical skills are required, but new studies suggest it’s a whole different story when the work involves thought. It turns out we’re not as manipulatable as some bosses may think we are.

3 Ways to Encourage Smarter Teamwork

3 Ways to Encourage Smarter Teamwork | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Business problems today are too big for any one person to solve. Agile teams are much more effective at solving problems than are lone geniuses. So why do we still reward the smartest people in the room more so than those who excel at working with others? You know who I’m talking about: the people who brazenly take over meetings by showing off how much they know or how witty they can be at the expense of any other voice in the room—and who often end up getting all of the boss’s attention.

School leaders in struggling schools need to be aware of their beliefs.  Taking time to reflect on how a leader approaches general situations can result in more effective practices.  I was guilty of error number 3 for several years.  Working harder to try to solve the overwhelming problems of a struggling school left me exhausted and caused me to neglect the relationships within the school and outside of the school.  When I changed my belief and practice, the school began to improve its academic performance - not so much through my efforts, but through the engagement and empowerment of others because of my investment in relationships.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 4, 2015 9:41 AM

(From the article): To increase your chances of resonating, ask, "Is this the appropriate time to deliver this idea? Is there anything already being discussed that I can connect my own idea to in order to give it context?"


Your voice is your single greatest possession as a leader. It's what allows you to mobilize and direct your team, and ultimately it's how you build a body of work you can be proud of. If your work matters to you, make the effort to cultivate a voice that resonates, and you’ll find your influence multiplying in ways you never expected.

Katherine Bryant's curator insight, September 14, 2015 2:19 PM

Great summary here of how to truly communicate with your team. My favourite is the advice to "Be empathetic" : 

Decide to choose empathy over easier, short-cut optionsIdentify a time when you’ve experienced a similar eventRecall how that event affected you and relive the emotionsThen act based upon your newfound understanding

Taking a few moments before communicating an idea to walk through these four steps will help you connect more deeply with your team.
