The Five Secrets of High-Performance Teams

The Five Secrets of High-Performance Teams | New Leadership | Scoop.it

“When a team outgrows individual performance and learns team confidence, excellence becomes a reality.” — Joe Paterno, longtime Penn State football coach

In business, we both expect and encourage teamwork.

Teams understand the importance of working together on goals that align with organizational goals that move the whole organization forward. Most people make serious efforts to accomplish this, but somehow, a few teams always seem to outshine the rest.

(From the article): Leadership development plays a critical role in safeguarding the future health of your organization. Although your most talented players have a shorter time to grow into their executive roles than in years past, they also have ready access to two important resources: their current leaders and their leadership peers. Companies that maximize these resources will have an easier time filling that elusive leadership pipeline.

6 Leadership Lessons From Necker Island

6 Leadership Lessons From Necker Island | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Sir Richard Branson is a man I’ve admired as long as I remember. His books – jammed with stories of his entrepreneurial exploits and intrepid adventures on earth, sky and space – sit atop my bookshelves, their pages underlined with insights on taking risks, managing setbacks and living bravely.

So when given the opportunity to spend a week with him on his private Caribbean island of Necker, I was curious as to what else I could glean from the man behind the larger than life media persona. As it turned out, plenty. It just wasn’t what I’d expected. In fact what impacted me most was not his brilliance as a businessman (clearly that’s a given!); it was his “way of being” and how that infused energy, passion and creativity into our group, the conversations we had and the possibilities that emerged from them.

6 Things Wise Leaders Do To Engage Their Employees

6 Things Wise Leaders Do To Engage Their Employees | New Leadership | Scoop.it
An article in the New York Daily News reports that nearly 70% of U.S. employees are miserable at work. According to the story, research conducted by the Gallup Poll suggests that the majority of American’s dislike or feel disengaged on the job. Needless to say, this is disturbing news. It’s also an indicator that leaders are having trouble finding ways to stimulate engagement with today’s employees – a workforce that is much more diverse and younger than ever before. Many corporations are experiencing transformation mode, where leadership is about enabling the full potential in others. It’s about allowing employees to be their authentic selves so they can leverage their strengths and unique perspectives.

Science of Engagement: what does engagement mean? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

An understanding of some aspects of how the brain is ‘wired’ can help you to increase the likelihood of people being engaged at work and avoid creating situations that destroy engagement. There is no set of system in the brain that ensures people are engaged. It’s more complex than that but there are a number of areas that help and this series of articles - The Science of Engagement - will cover the science and the practical implications for creating an environment where people are more engaged.

Giving Feedback When You’re Conflict Averse

Giving Feedback When You’re Conflict Averse | New Leadership | Scoop.it

“Conflict avoiders are generally people who value harmony in the workplace,” writes Amy Gallo in the HBR Guide to Managing Conflict at Work. ”When they sense a disagreement brewing, they will often try to placate the other person or change the topic. These aren’t passive behaviors, but active things they do to prevent conflict from becoming an issue.”

So what do you do if you naturally avoid conflict but a big part of your job is giving difficult performance feedback? When you’re worried about ruffling feathers, how do you provide your direct reports with the input they need to learn and improve?

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.

The 8 Ways That Great Leaders Keep Great People | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Whether your dream team is fully in place or still a work in progress, it’s important to remember that retaining great staffers is at least as important as recruiting them.

 

Not only is turnover hard on employee morale and short-term capacity, but searches, hires, and onboarding are time-consuming and expensive processes. And there’s always an element of risk when you bring in someone new.
