Exit the leadership vortex

Exit the leadership vortex | New Leadership | Scoop.it

 I was recently at a function at the House of Commons at which the seasoned CEO of a multinational financial services organisation aptly described the environment of business leadership much akin to operating in a vortex. In reality, amidst widespread confusion, if not chaos, leaders lack effective control of the speed, direction, indeed the ultimate destination and survival of the organisation.

Leading with Emotional Intelligence: The Power of Empathy

Leading with Emotional Intelligence: The Power of Empathy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The business community has embraced the concept of emotional intelligence and its importance ever since Daniel Goleman's best-selling book, Working with Emotional Intelligence(1998). The challenge is to demonstrate that such competencies significantly impact employee performance.

 

Ten Ways to Develop Empathy

1. Keep a note of situations in which you felt you were able to demonstrate empathy and a note when you felt you did not. Make a note of missed opportunities to respond with empathy.2. Become aware of incidents where there may be some underlying concerns that are not explicitly expressed by others.3. Make a note of possible emotions or feelings that the other person may be experiencing. Keep an open mind and never assume, merely explore the possibilities.4. Develop a list of questions to ask at your next encounter with that person. Try to make the questions open-ended, that is, questions that can't be answered by yes or no.5.  Practice listening without interrupting. Wait until the other person is complete with their point of view before offering yours.6.  Avoid being defensive in order to create an open dialogue where possibilities can be explored freely.7.  Allow creative time for people to express opinions and ideas without judgment.8. Practice active listening: always check out the meaning of what was said with the person speaking. Paraphrasing what was said helps to clear up misconceptions and to deepen understanding.9. Always bring focus back into the conversation. Remember that optimal effectiveness is achieved by a combination of focus and empathy.10. Work on achieving an effective balance of focus, goal orientation and empathic listening.

This article says managers think employees want good wages, job security and promotion.


My experience is that managers are more sophisticated and know that employees want to be valued. They understand the adage, "Employees quit their manager, not their job." Where managers struggle is in knowing how to create a workplace where employees can make meaningful contributions--personally and for the business.

5 Habits Of Effective Introverted Leaders

5 Habits Of Effective Introverted Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership is often associated with words like "charisma," "power," "outgoing," and "confident." As a result, introverted and quiet changemakers may have difficulties envisioning what their leadership looks like.

 

But core aspects of leadership, such as those described by transformational leadership researchers James MacGregor Burns, Bernard M. Bass, James Kouzes, and Barry Posner, and by Good to Great author Jim Collins, reflect ideas that are in total alignment with quiet changemakers, and you don’t need to be in a position of authority or have a formal leadership role to practice these leadership characteristics.

How to Hack Your Culture for Meaningful Results

How to Hack Your Culture for Meaningful Results | New Leadership | Scoop.it

As management thinker Roger Martin reminded us recently in his Harvard Business Review article, despite all the innovation and business model changes we’ve seen, there are still only two ways by which businesses compete.  It is either through cost leadership, or differentiated products.

In an age of abundance and hyper-competition, companies are typically forced to choose the lesser of two evils; however, given enough time and money, your competitors can duplicate almost everything you’ve got working for you. They can hire away some of your best people. They can reverse engineer your processes and clone your business model.  The only thing that’s really hard to duplicate is your culture.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 12, 2015 9:01 AM

(From the article): Leaders who exhibit strength and empathy have a stable center from which they operate. At their core is an unwavering belief in themselves and those around them. They have the uncanny ability to persevere through the toughest and trickiest of situations with poise and grace. They never seem to lose their cool and people are happy to stand along side them in a time of crisis. They have a plan and seek input from others. They make tough decisions. They take action. They treat everyone with respect and dignity.

How to Give Tough Feedback That Helps People Grow

How to Give Tough Feedback That Helps People Grow | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Over the years, I’ve asked hundreds of executive students what skills they believe are essential for leaders. “The ability to give tough feedback” comes up frequently. But what exactly is “tough feedback”? The phrase connotes bad news, like when you have to tell a team member that they’ve screwed up on something important. Tough also signifies the way we think we need to be when giving negative feedback: firm, resolute, and unyielding.
