Lack of Trust Is Preventing a Long-Term Greek Solution

Lack of Trust Is Preventing a Long-Term Greek Solution | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Any outcome of the current negotiations between Greece and its European creditors won’t satisfy either party.

As the Eurozone and Greece go through the last hours of a negotiation to ensure the release of additional funds from the previous agreement, and possibly setting the basis for the next one, it is becoming clear that a lack of trust is holding back a sustainable agreement.

Meetings at your company aren’t going away. If anything, that much-maligned beast is growing in prominence, thanks to the ease of gathering people via tech

Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, June 24, 2015 9:22 PM

Meetings, when well-run, do have a valid place in organizational life. They can even be invigorating, if properly led. It takes a skilled meeting leader—one aware not only of how to organize a meeting, but also about the ebb and flow of human interaction—to create a successful gathering of the minds.

6 Internal Sources Of Strength For Leaders To Develop

6 Internal Sources Of Strength For Leaders To Develop | New Leadership | Scoop.it

We leaders tend to focus on developing external resources. How can we make the best use of our team’s time, budget, and expertise? Yes, these are important considerations, and leaders who ignore them won’t be leading for long. But too often, leaders focus so much on external factors that they neglect (or completely ignore) their internal resources: their attitudes, perspectives, motivation, and beliefs that make up their true selves.

Leadership a choice and linked to service‚ says Machel

Leadership a choice and linked to service‚ says Machel | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Former South African first lady‚ Graça Machel told the African Leadership Academy’s (ALA’s) graduate class this weekend that there was a difference between leading and ruling.


“Leadership is linked to service. Leadership is also a choice. Never limit your ability. But never get to a point where you think you have learnt enough‚” Machel said.

She was addressing 96 graduates of the Johannesburg-based academy who completed a two year programme that‚ according to the academy’s vision statement‚ aims to mould “young leaders to demonstrate leadership‚ entrepreneurial spirit‚ commitment to service and academic excellence”.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, June 23, 2015 11:50 AM

Change has clearly become the new normal and organizations that can seamlessly navigate the constant state of disruption will best position themselves for success in the future world of work. In such environments there is an imperative for leaders to go first, setting the example for all others to follow. Leaders who approach the change with the right mindsets, and leaders who send the right messages through how they act and behave.


Steve Bax's curator insight, June 24, 2015 4:01 AM

A thought provoking article. Two elements are particularly notable: A quote from Tim Cook, CEO of Apple ...: “We change every day. We changed every day when he (Steve Jobs) was here, and we’ve been changing every day since he’s not been here. But the core and the values in the core remain the same as they were in ’98, as they were in ’05, as they were in ’10. I don’t think the values should change. But everything else can change.” and within the article...

 

What we typically don’t consider however, is it’s not the overt messages that make or break us, it’s the covert ones, the ones we are not thinking about or aware of. Thus, most times when we find our teams and organizations resisting change, our answer as to why is staring right back at us in the mirror.

 

Dan Diamond, MD's curator insight, August 11, 2015 5:26 PM

There are four primary type of mindset:

1). BYSTANDERS: the powerless-givers that "wish" they could do something. They are not engaged and don't contribute.

2). VICTIMS: the powerless-takers that yell, "help me!" They consume resources and leave a wake of damage.

3). MANIPULATORS: the powerful-takers that demand, "for me!". They may get ahead for a while but only at the expense of others.

4). THRIVER: the powerful-givers who's motto is "for you". They focus on equipping others to succeed and don't care who gets the credit.

Five habits for successful leadership

Five habits for successful leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Whether it is business, community, politics or sports, all need successful leaders; men and women who can inspire those around them to reach deep within themselves to get things done. The old saying, ‘leaders are created, not born’ still holds true. Leadership is a combination of science, art and hard work; it is knowing how to get the best out of people, creating a vision that motivates and excites, developing and maintaining a positive, ambitious and productive environment, and yes, some old fashioned hard work. The good news is that anyone can learn how to become a successful leader. Here are five good habits to cultivate:

donhornsby's curator insight, June 23, 2015 9:23 AM

(From the article): Leadership is noticing talent, nurturing and developing it, demonstrating that efforts to work hard will not go unnoticed, leading from the front, motivating and inspiring, creating a vision and striving for it as a united team. No-one said being a leader was easy, but it can certainly be rewarding. So whether you are new to being a leader, or more experienced, try cultivating the five habits of leadership in your working week, you team will thank you for it.

Ivan Ang's curator insight, June 23, 2015 8:43 PM

These habits would be the bare basics of good leadership. Start with these and then build on it with other leadership traits to be developed.

(From the article): How many times have you seen someone go to a leadership training, come back all fired up, and then go right back to their old habits a few days later? Pick one or two leadership behaviors you want to improve, and practice them consistently every day. This could be something as simple as “I’m going to ask more strategic questions to get my team thinking.” Or, “I’m going to wait until others have had a chance to speak in meetings until I chime in.”

Building a Thriving Collaborative Workplace

Building a Thriving Collaborative Workplace | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Creating a collaborative workplace that delivers benefits to both employers and employees requires a clear strategy, transparent goals and the right tech tools.


Collaboration has always been a key to business success. It's virtually impossible for an organization to build products and services—and achieve outstanding results—without people working with other people. However, in today's high-stakes business environment, effective collaboration is critical.

"Collaboration is happening within organizations, whether it was planned or not," observes Jason Warnke, managing director for enterprise social collaboration at consulting firm Accenture. "The key is to harness the power of collaboration and bring it 'online' for the benefit of the larger organization."

Team Building and Other Leadership Band-Aids That Don’t Work

Team Building and Other Leadership Band-Aids That Don’t Work | New Leadership | Scoop.it
“I’d like to do a team-building session and get everyone together. We really need it.”


“Why? How do you know it’s time?”


“Morale is low, and our team needs some motivation.”


“Why is morale low? What information do you have about what’s causing it?”


“We reorganized and consolidated jobs recently, so people have taken on what feels like two or three jobs. And our new VP is pretty demanding, so there’s frustration about the reality of some of the changes. They need something positive.”
Does this story sound familiar? Team building won’t fix this problem and could even make it worse.

AdVentureGamesInc's curator insight, June 29, 2015 4:53 PM

A team building seminar isn't a bad idea, but it's also not ideal to sit in a room and listen to someone talk about "how to get motivated". 

The best way to get motivated and increase your company morale is to actually get up and do something about it. Complete a top secret mission, or go on a city wide scavenger hunt. Give your team an adventure they'll never forget.

The 6 Behaviors Of Great Simplification Leaders

The 6 Behaviors Of Great Simplification Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Lately, there’s been much discussion about the state of complexity, how it’s holding businesses back, and why simplicity is the new mandate. It’s slowing businesses down. Employees are demotivated. And worse, it’s destroying profits.


The way people work is changing, and there are more complexities in running a business than ever. The complexity of legacy technology shackling teams with multiple, fragmented tools and a limited or no global view. The complexity of engaging a changing and diverse workforce that is increasingly global, outsourced, connected, and demanding. The complexity of connecting strategy to business results without clear guidance on what HR should do to impact the business.


How do you rise out of an environment of overwhelming complexity to one that is simple?

5 Harsh Truths That Will Make You A Better Leader In The Digital Age

5 Harsh Truths That Will Make You A Better Leader In The Digital Age | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Ten years ago, the stereotypical image of a great leader was a strong, serious and somewhat intimidating type.


Today, we often hear that a great leader must show his/her vulnerable side, be authentic and have an unwavering commitment to the success of others.


What’s happened – have leaders become soft? Or simply more human? And why did this happen?


One doesn’t have to go far to see that the new leadership requirements are a direct result of a radically new world which emerged during the last decade: 


Expectations of customers have changed
Motivations of employees have evolved, and
Technology has enabled people to communicate in remarkable, new ways.

How to Turn the Generational “Divide” Into a Winning Business Strategy

How to Turn the Generational “Divide” Into a Winning Business Strategy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It may not be evident; it might be just beneath the surface. You may have seen glimpses of it…throw in some baby boomers and millennials in an enclosed space and you’re looking at a combustible mix of personal and professional differences and (mis)perceptions.


Close to twenty-five percent of HR professionals surveyed by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in 2011 reported some generational conflict in the workplace. The tensions seem all but inevitable, as millennials (those born between 1981 and 2000) and boomers have very different outlooks on work, life, and technology. Whether their perceptions of each other are accurate or not (many are actually not), forty-seven percent of younger workers complained that older managers were resistant to change and tended to micromanage. Meanwhile, roughly thirty-three percent of baby boomers polled complained that their millennial counterparts were too informal, entitled, entirely too dependent on technology, and lacked respect for authority.
