Never Stop Leading

Never Stop Leading | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Arianna watched the meeting devolve into a time sink. Try as she might to get people to stick to the agenda, the gathering had gone so far off track that her colleagues were at their wits’ end. What started off at a professional disagreement over the direction of the endeavour rapidly devolved into another circular conversation. For all of the reflective listening and other interventions that Arianna did, the team was not meshing well together and the project was falling further behind. On many occasions, Arianna held smaller sessions with a few key people that seemed to be butting heads. She encouraged them to communicate what was really driving the divide between them and what was really motivating them in staying in their positions. Her efforts met with lukewarm results.

Thinking Like a Leader: Three Big Shifts

From linearity to complexity. Management systems and processes tend to be linear. They assume that similar inputs will result in similar outputs. In many situations, this holds true. Leadership, however, requires a more nuanced view of the world because it involves people: what motivates them, what their interests are, and how engaged they become. Mechanical systems may be linear but as soon as the human element becomes involved, the system becomes both complex and adaptive. It is dynamic — similar inputs may bring about wildly divergent outputs.

Via Don Dea, Marc Wachtfogel, Ph.D.
Roger Francis's insight:

As a leader, you come to understand that relationships between the system components are paramount, rather than the components themselves. Discerning these dynamics is essential to achieving your desired outcome, which means you think about connectivity, and the extent and robustness of those connections. You accept that these relationships contain some performance factors you control and some you don’t — you are part of the system, but likely not its gravitational center — and that effective influence can amplify your impact on those beyond your direct purview.

When things go well or when you hit a bump along your leadership road, ask yourself which direct and indirect relationships were at play. Where did your attention to positive connectivity pay dividends and where might you have done better?

How millennials challenge traditional leadership

Millennials say they don't care about money, legacy or hierarchy, and instead aspire to be collaborative, empowering and transformational leaders. However, many millennials also say their organizations lack the necessary corporate training programs to get them there.

Millennials say soft skills are key to leadership success

Millennials believe soft skills will put them on the fast track to leadership positions. Survey respondents said the most important skills are communication (58 percent) and relationship building (55 percent), and they feel they are already strong in these two areas. On the flip side, millennials have less confidence in their industry knowledge (43 percent) and technical expertise (41 percent).

Working on those shortcomings is a challenge for millennials, and more than half of the respondents (55 percent) said they aren't satisfied with the leadership development opportunities at their companies, a sentiment reflected in Virtuali's last survey from 2014. Many of the millennials said they want online classes or e-learning opportunities (68 percent) and mentor programs (53 percent) to help prepare for leadership roles, and they also want to shadow more experienced leaders (42 percent).

7 Provoking Questions Critical to Your Purpose in Business

7 Provoking Questions Critical to Your Purpose in Business | New Leadership | Scoop.it

“Nothing is more creative nor destructive than a brilliant mind with a purpose” – Dan Brown

It seems the corporate world more than ever understands this message, with the concept of purpose being more talked about these days than the concept of sustainability. Purpose is king and there is no turning back. 87% of business executives agrees that their companies will perform better if their purpose goes beyond making a profit (EY Purpose Institute). Organizations with a strong sense of purpose are more likely to say they encourage innovation, record positive growth and outgrow competitors (Deloitte 2014 Core Beliefs and Culture Study). And for consumers worldwide, purpose is the new paradigm, with almost 9 out of 10 global consumers wanting businesses to place at least equal weight on society’s interests as they do on businesses’ interest (Edelman Annual Global Goodpurpose Study).
