Collaborating For Results

Collaborating For Results | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Last year I wrote about what hinders good quality relationships between people and teams in organisations and how to improve them (see the links below). This included the role that learning and development practitioners and leaders play in developing effective working relationships. This month I focus on the impact that some fundamental values have on collaboration for results.

Don't Let Strategy Become Planning

Don't Let Strategy Become Planning | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Many people find it hard to distinguish between strategy and planning. I must have heard the words "we need to create a strategic plan" at least an order of magnitude more times than I have heard "we need to create a strategy." This is because most people see strategy as an exercise in producing a planning document.

Two Sides of Respect

Two Sides of Respect | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Respect is a two-sided coin.  Generally respect is defined as esteem for a person or deference to a person or thing.  We often hear people say they have respect for someone or they show respect to someone or something.  They acknowledge the other person; their importance or their value.  In short, respect for another person shows up by giving preference or simply hoping the other person wins.

Respect begets respect.  It's that simple.  

 

Do we respect the culture our students/teachers  bring or are we expecting them to be just like us?

donhornsby's curator insight, February 2, 2013 3:22 AM

(From the article): Focusing on the right side of the respect coin will produce positive results in your leadership effectiveness and your team’s engagement and development.  What can you do today to appreciate your people and help them appreciate others in a way that makes the team more effective and produces better results?

Leadership and the Anatomy of a Good Apology

Leadership and the Anatomy of a Good Apology | New Leadership | Scoop.it

John Wayne, (or one of his many characters), once said, “ Never apologize, Mister. It’s a sign of weakness”

 

He may have been right in many things but in this, he was mistaken.  Apologies, the good kind, take a lot of courage and humility to pull off.   There is nothing weak about that.

Leadership is fluid and is never outdated. What I am not seeing is the shift from management to leadership. It certainly is not happening where I work and live. The trust question and answer is revealing. He does not use the word narcissism, but it is in evidence and growing. What will that do for the next generation?

 

Tom Hood's comment, February 10, 2013 5:05 AM
Love the curator insights (Amy & donhornsby) "I think this is the greatest sentence ever written on leadership: “The task of a leader is not to put greatness into people, but to draw it out, because the greatness is there already.” That’s what a true leader thinks. We have a responsibility to the world to play a leading part in growing and developing good leaders and leaders for good." and (From the article): Half the world’s population is 25 years or under, so we have an immense job of sowing the seeds for the next generation of leaders.-

Tom Hood's curator insight, February 10, 2013 5:16 AM

In our five years working with the CPA Profession's best and brightest young leaders (AICPA, MACPA, UACPA, LSCPA Leadership Academies), I worry that many of our current leaders are not taking the responsibility to develop new leaders fast enough. Yet when you get these young leaders in a room, it is easy to pull their greatness out of them.


What can we do to develop more leaders fast enough as two baby boomers will retire for every Gen-Xer available to replace them?


Love the curator insights:

If You Aren't Scared, You Aren't Leading -  Mills-Scofield LLC - Innovanomics, strategic alignment for innovation | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Do you find leadership daunting?  Even scary?  I do.  Frankly, I think we should.  Leading others carries a huge responsibility.  It is not for the faint of heart, for those afraid of being wrong, for those who want comfort and stability, or for those who need external affirmation.

The importance of asking for help, in addition to answering the "why" and asking the "why not." Leadership is inspiring others to act but also being humble in gathering input and advice from the talented people that surround a leader.

Three of the biggest impediments to making major changes fast, especially in a large company like Cisco, are 1. Unclear clear goals, 2. Lack of a decision making process that is transparent to employees, and, 3. Top management not sticking to that process. From Forbes.
