Interesting POV from the Center for Work Life.  There is a lot of information here worth reviewing but not sure I agree it is a definitive guide.  It is a good starting point.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 25, 2014 3:07 PM

Simple leadership is all about people. When we put people i.e. teachers and students first, we find we ask questions about their "whoness" and not "whatness". It is a little Dr. Seuss-like, but people are not disposable and replaceable widgets in a mechanistic ordering. They come as historical and forming beings, not doings.

 

Simple leadership gets the complexity of putting people first.

Characters are an essential ingredient of a story.  Read the full article to find out more about these three tips on using names in business storytelling:

  1. If it’s a positive story, use real names
  2. If it’s sensitive, change the names but keep the character

The Future of Management Has Already Arrived – Part V: Wiki Management

The Future of Management Has Already Arrived – Part V: Wiki Management | Leadership | Scoop.it

Today’s managers face a difficult and unprecedented challenge: The world is changing much faster than their organizations. Every industry, without exception, has been overtaken by an accelerating pace of change that shows no signs of letting up any time soon. In a world where change is constant, it’s not surprising that many managers feel overwhelmed by what appears to be a completely unmanageable state of affairs.

Traditional Leadership Hierarchies Are Dead, Or Should Be

Traditional Leadership Hierarchies Are Dead, Or Should Be | Leadership | Scoop.it

Growth and innovation doesn't necessarily come from the people with lofty titles, but from the people who develop new ideas and execute them on a daily basis. And that's why, increasingly, traditional hierarchies don't work--and neither do traditional promotion and recognition systems.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, March 30, 2014 9:33 PM

Interesting article.  It does not propose that hierarchies should not exist or are bad for the organisation, but that the traditional hierarchies based on tenure rather than merit should be challenges  I especially like the comment - listen to your employees to determine the real leaders.

Why Leadership-Development Programs Fail

Why Leadership-Development Programs Fail | Leadership | Scoop.it

Sidestepping four common mistakes can help companies develop stronger and more capable leaders, save time and money, and boost morale. 



Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Jerry Busone's insight:

Overall this Quote says it all,"Embedding leadership development in real work; fearlessly investigating the mind-sets that underpin behavior; and monitoring the impact so as to make improvements over time." I believe my group is on track.

more...
Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 3, 2014 8:52 AM

The four common mistakes are:


1. Overlooking context

Context is a critical component of successful leadership. A brilliant leader in one situation does not necessarily perform well in another. Academic studies have shown this, and our experience bears it out.


2. Decoupling reflection from real work

When it comes to planning the program’s curriculum, companies face a delicate balancing act. On the one hand, there is value in off-site programs (many in university-like settings) that offer participants time to step back and escape the pressing demands of a day job. On the other hand, even after very basic training sessions, adults typically retain just 10 percent of what they hear in classroom lectures, versus nearly two-thirds when they learn by doing.


3. Underestimating mind-sets

Becoming a more effective leader often requires changing behavior. But although most companies recognize that this also means adjusting underlying mind-sets, too often these organizations are reluctant to address the root causes of why leaders act the way they do.


4. Failing to measure results

We frequently find that companies pay lip service to the importance of developing leadership skills but have no evidence to quantify the value of their investment. When businesses fail to track and measure changes in leadership performance over time, they increase the odds that improvement initiatives won’t be taken seriously.


Menno Molendijk's curator insight, April 7, 2014 6:33 AM

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast | Leadership | Scoop.it

Culture eats strategy for breakfast, technology for lunch, and products for dinner, and soon thereafter everything else too.Why? Because company culture, a concept pioneered by Edgar Schein, is the operationalizing of an organization’s values. Culture guides employee decisions about both technical business decisions and how they interact with others. Good culture creates an internal coherence in actions taken by a very diverse group of employees.

Absolute favorite quote. If more people focussed on creating the right climate and culture strategies would be almost flawlessly executed.

"“You can’t complain here,” Tamara explained. “If you see something wrong, you must fix it. We say it is a great opportunity to come up with a solution, and this is where many of our best programs have come from. Anything can be changed. We aren’t victim to anyone. We own the culture.”"

Sandeep Gautam's curator insight, June 11, 2014 1:23 AM

Culture matters and it matters immensely!

Tobias Beckwith's curator insight, July 14, 2014 11:27 AM

This seems to be a theme for my day... this is the third place I"ve encountered the idea, and it's not even 9am yet. When we seek to create change in the world, all too often we ignore the most powerful thing working against us - the culture in which we're working. So how can you work with that? Make your change "fit" the culture? Find ways to change the culture itself?

It’s easy to attract like-minded people.  They fuel us and give a sense of belonging.  This after all is a basic human need.  A sense of inclusion is a drive that many share.  If though inclusion is equated with sameness then just like in high school, you have the cool group and then the not so hip.  The liability of the cool group is the risk of absence of diversity.

The Future of Management Has Already Arrived – Part VI: Iterate and Co-Create | Leadership | Scoop.it

In the first five parts of this series, we have made the case that a nineteenth century management model is unsustainable in a twenty-first century world. The recent technological revolution has suddenly thrust us into a new world with a completely different set of rules. This new world is a hyper-connected global village where, for the first time in human history, we have the means to self-organize the work of large numbers of people without the need for central organizations. And what’s most amazing is that, as inconceivable as it may seem, we are learning that the new forms of self-organized networks that have recently emerged are often smarter and faster than their traditional bureaucratic counterparts.

I once listened to a School manager repeat the phrase "we are going to hit it out of the ball park" numerous times during a meeting. The next we were told he had been promoted. Coaching has to involve genuine and honest relationships. It is not glib phrases and cheer leading. It involves rolling up the sleeves and listening carefully to others and helping them find solutions.
