How to Handle Rebellion on Your Team

How to Handle Rebellion on Your Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever been blindsided in a meeting? You adequately prepared. The objectives were clear. But then, BLAM! Someone objects to one of your assumptions about halfway through the meeting and others just add to the objections. You need to be open — and ready to handle — differences of opinion, dissent in the ranks, or even outright rebellion. Diversity of opinion is when one or more people offer a different way to view the situation. Dissent is when there’s a disagreement with a position or proposal. And rebellion happens when a dominant coalition or a sizeable force outright defy or contest your right to be the team leader. While these three things are quite different, they’re connected (a difference of opinion can quickly downward spiral into rebellion, for example) and you may feel besieged no matter which is happening to you.

1. What's it like to be on the other side of me? Are others around me flourishing? 2. How can I improve? 3. Who currently has permission to call me out and say the hard things to me that I need to hear? 4. How do I respond in moments of crisis? Do I chew people out when something is not done right? 5. Am I truly self aware? Where/what are my blind spots in my leadership? Am I a secure confident leader? 6. Do I talk more than I listen? 7. What do I need to learn from my most recent failures? 8. How do I lead people way different than me? 9. Am I comfortable surrounding myself with people who are better at their jobs than I am? 10. Who else should I be learning from? Who is currently coaching or mentoring me? BONUS: Who am I grooming/coaching to replace me in my current role?

How to Make a Successful Global Team Work

How to Make a Successful Global Team Work | New Leadership | Scoop.it
In a multicultural workplace, misunderstandings happen. If your British manager tells you something is “interesting,” does he really mean the opposite? Why do your Dutch coworkers feel so comfortable talking back to the boss?

Erin Meyer helps companies navigate these subtle cultural cues. In her new book, The Culture Map: Breaking through the Invisible Boundaries of Global Business (Public Affairs, 2014), the affiliate professor of organizational behavior at INSEAD looks at the ways people from different cultures can learn one another’s social cues in professional settings. According to Meyer, multinational companies have spent significant time and energy trying to figure out how to appeal to a wide array of consumers, and not enough time figuring out how to help their own employees work together.

Don’t Become an Invisible Leader in Your Busiest Times

Don’t Become an Invisible Leader in Your Busiest Times | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Great leadership requires a whole lot more than hard work. Sure, the ability to buckle down and plow through tasks is great, but disappearing into the shadows while doing so is something I call “invisible leadership” — managing like Casper the Friendly Ghost.


These folks have given up on inspiring their crews, influencing other departments, and enacting companywide change management. Instead, they stay in their swim lane and complete their daily responsibilities without stepping on toes.
It’s low-emissions leadership. We do

n’t need this type of leadership. We actually want our leaders to leave a visible footprint.

The Trouble with Putting Goals Ahead of Strategy

The Trouble with Putting Goals Ahead of Strategy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Many business leaders subscribe to the classic definition of strategy as a set of actions designed to achieve an overall aim. In other words, they believe strategy starts with a goal. But for companies that have implemented winning strategies, that’s not how it typically happens.

Starting with your big idea! #strategy #business

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, July 4, 2015 2:05 AM

I guess many of us had all wrong when we put the goal first. Be it business houses, or educational institutions, or even learners, hitting at the goal first, according to the writer of the article, might not have been a sure path to success! Even Bill Gates arrived at the goal after he had made a few attempts to provide an operating system for micro-computers. It was only after a few false starts, one of which was when his software began to be pirated that he decided to have one operating system across different machines with differing configurations. That, I guess was his goal! To have a operating software was his big idea, his goal was to have a single operating system, while his strategy was built through his experience of pushing his product into the market (the piracy of his first attempt probably taught him a lesson in strategy!). The writer of the article makes it clear that the correct path to success starts with 1.Having a Big Idea, 2.Having a Strategy, 3.Having a Goal. Bill Gates is now closest to his goal of ensuring that almost everyother home in the developed world has a computer!

13 Challenges All Coaching-Managers Face

13 Challenges All Coaching-Managers Face | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It's more difficult to be a coaching-manager than to be a coach that comes in from the outside. Open listening, courageous honesty, and not fixing, seem more challenging when coaches and coachees have work history.

Marc Wachtfogel, PhD's curator insight, July 3, 2015 7:38 AM

There are two themes here. The first is the difference between internal and external coaches. While both focus primarily on enhancing performance, the latter has a clear goal for a finite period. The second is the newer practice of manager as coach. However, a framework needs to be in place to avoid ambiguity and subjectivity. With clear goals, timelines, metrics and development plans (i.e. a career ownership model) conversations, while uncomfortable for some, provides an objective basis. Given that feedback is an essential role of a manager, new-manager training with process, tools and resources can help. But, nothing can replace actual practice. Perhaps, a little coaching can help.

Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader

Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it
A new Ketchum leadership study of more than 6,000 respondents in 12 countries reveals people are looking more to employees at all levels for leadership instead of just those at the top of the org chart. According to the fourth-annual Ketchum Leadership Communication Monitor (KLCM), 41 percent of respondents believe leadership should come mainly from the organization and all its employees, compared with 25 percent that believe leadership should come only from the CEO.

This aligns with three years of KLCM data pointing to the demise of the CEO-as-celebrity leadership style and highlights a greater-than-ever opportunity for "leadership by all" – a collaborative and communicative culture that empowers employees at every level.

While the CEO, board and senior management still play an important role, the study suggests that employees throughout an organization can and should provide leadership. The survey identified the top five traits of an effective leader: leading by example (63 percent), communicating in an open and transparent way (61 percent), admitting mistakes (59 percent), bringing out the best in others (58 percent), and handling controversial issues or crises calmly and confidently (58 percent). These are traits that every CEO should possess, and also ones that every good employee would have.

Leading With Less

Leading With Less | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Rebel Leaders unite! The new buzzphrase we must embrace, believe and employ is:

 

Less With Less.


Now, this will truly test the limits of your leadership. And it will test the resolve of your superiors. But it is the right thing to do for your followers and vital to the long-term sustainability of your organization.


One of the hardest trials of any leader is to say, “I can’t/we can’t/this organization can’t.” Many insecure leaders see it as a confession of weakness or failure of their leadership abilities. That could not be further from the truth. Now, higher-level leaders routinely say they do not want yes-people in their organization. They remind us the last thing any efficiently effective leader wants is a staff who just agrees and never pushes back. But do they mean it?
