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.

A New Kind of Leadership Is Emerging That's Already Saving the World

A New Kind of Leadership Is Emerging That's Already Saving the World | New Leadership | Scoop.it
There's a new kind of leadership emerging that's gaining momentum. It has the power to transform the world in less than a decade what took multiple generations centuries to accomplish under the old paradigm.

Fueled by the power of collectivism balanced upon a substratum of unabashed individualism, the new leadership paradigm becomes its own power source when properly driven. If you and Ayn Rand don't think collectivism and individualism can coexist in the same sentence, much less be driven down the same road, you might want to ditch your rearview mirror for a glimpse into the future.

Collectivism emphasizes the interdependence of all human beings. Beyond government or political systems, we already know that collectivism that doesn't also allow for individual autonomy doesn't work as it limits human potential. Individualism is critical to cultivating natural diversity and maintaining checks and balances.

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, June 22, 2015 1:58 AM

Interesting that leadership is seen as THE key issue in Europe and Asia Pacific (its Communications in the Americas).  Here are the most common drivers:

  • Trust: are leaders seen as doing what they say they will?
  • Visibility: do I get contact with leaders or are they always behind closed doors?
  • Living the values: is there consistency in the values which you ask us at the frontline to live by being applied at every level?

Leadership: Why a perennial issue?

Leadership: Why a perennial issue? | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Why is leadership a perennial issue?

For the third year in a row, leadership soared to become one of the most pressing talent challenges faced by global organizations. Nearly 9 out of 10 global HR and business leaders (86 percent) cited leadership as a top issue. Fully 50 percent of respondents in our survey rated their leadership shortfalls as “very important.” Yet only 6 percent of organizations believe their leadership pipeline is “very ready”—pointing to a staggering capability gap. (See figure 1 for capability gaps across regions and selected countries). Respondents’ overall capability gap in leadership, which has grown in magnitude since last year (figure 2),1 is striking, considering that leadership program spending has increased compared to last year.2

If nearly every company recognizes leadership as a critical talent problem, why are so few companies making any progress? ~ Deloitte POV

Ian Berry's curator insight, June 19, 2015 1:57 AM

A key reason we're failing to make progress is only focusing leadership development on executives and designated leaders rather than focusing on everyone. Self-leadership is everyone's business and is the starting place to leading for others.

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, June 19, 2015 10:36 AM

I totally agree with Deloitte's question here? So few companies have any type of career planning for anyone in the organization. It is a part of leadership that must begin to get traction. Planning for succession is one thing but open, transparent career planning is another.

Beyond Empathy

Beyond Empathy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In some circles, it is increasingly accepted that empathy is a key capability of a leader.  Even in the face of research, some still ignore this.  However, there is a growing tide of evidence that empathy is a core skill for the modern workplace.  Empathic ability is positively correlated to better performance as a leader.  It facilitates much improved working relationships and in the modern workplace, we often don't get to choose who we work with.  An increasingly diverse workforce creates challenges for us and in order for us to get things done, we need to learn how to get on with a greater variety of working styles, viewpoints and personalities.  Getting a deep, felt sense of what it's like for someone else grants us greater ability to make decisions, be inclusive, resolve conflicts and share responsibility.

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.

How a company’s structure affects the leadership gender gap

How a company’s structure affects the leadership gender gap | New Leadership | Scoop.it
More and more companies are moving away from top-down hierarchies and toward more collaborative models.

In what might be the buzziest example in recent memory, Zappos ditched managers altogether, as part of their high-profile transition to Holacracy, an alternative model structured around “self-management.”

But while Zappos may be extreme, it’s hardly alone.

Not every company is ditching the very notion of management — far from it — but there is a mass migration toward flatter structures and looser hierarchies.

And according to research by Raina Brands, an assistant professor of organizational behavior at London Business School, that shift could be particularly good for women in leadership positions.

Which Values Are Ethical Values?

Which Values Are Ethical Values? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

My Applied Ethics students asked a great question that I want to answer in today’s post:  “Which Values Are Ethical Values?”


Quick Overview


Not all values are ethical values. Some values, such as efficiency, do not have an ethical component. Some ethical values involve qualities of an ethical self (such as honesty and integrity). Others describe positive and ethical behavior toward others, the environment and society.
Ethical values by definition are positive and they often require that we stretch outside of our own interests to respect, protect, serve and help others.
