About leadership
I strongly believe in a new type of management style. Not the control-and-command style, form which Managers are derived, but working together based on trust, empowerment and cooperation. Leaders in stead of Managers. All part of my philosophy call 'Qualtism'.

Simple Leadership

Simple Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

The more complicated you try to make leadership the more complicated it will be to lead.

 

Some people like to make leadership really really complicated. I think they do that in order to put “leaders” or those with leadership titles on a pedestal of some kind. 

 

The more complicated “leading” is the more valuable a “leader” becomes, or so the popular thinking seems to go. The problem with that thinking is this: leadership is not complicated.

Social Business Needs a Culture of Social Leadership

Social Business Needs a Culture of Social Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

I have been arguing for several years now that the real value of social media goes way beyond marketing and communications: it is teaching us a new way to lead and manage our organizations.

 

Thus I have been encouraged by the recent conversations I’m hearing around “social business.” While I think it has the makings of a buzzword, for now “social business” works for me as a category of conversations that we need to conduct in the business community.

Ed Smith on the importance of leadership, data analysis and culture to a team's results

Ed Smith on the importance of leadership, data analysis and culture to a team's results | About leadership | Scoop.it

A writer yearns to have intelligent readers who engage with his ideas. Then you realise that they are examining your logic with an uncomfortably forensic eye.

Two weeks ago I argued that all students of sport need to understand randomness. That the familiar talking points of selection and tactics are lazily thrown around to explain events they often do not influence. That understanding the "causes" of why things happen in sport is very difficult.

Yes, how you lead is important. Why you lead, though, is far more interesting and more powerful. When you combine the how and the why, you have a dynamic interaction that helps emerge your leadership presence.

Provocative post here by Peter Bregman on the need to apply the leadership lessons back to the workplace, specifically the emotional courage needed to give work through uncomfortable situations, provide direct feedback and be vulnerable. 

 

From the post:

 

The only way to teach courage is to require it of people. To offer them opportunities to draw from the courage they already have. To give them opportunities to step into real situations they find uncomfortable and truly take the time to connect with the sensations that come with that.

 

For example, most leadership programs give people feedback from anonymously collected forms they and their colleagues fill out before the program. That's safe.

 

In the leadership week I conduct for senior leaders, I have people give each other real feedback, in real time, face-to-face with each other, based on what they're witnessing in the program.

 

That's courageous.

 

And the more they take those kinds of risks during the week — risks to be vulnerable, to communicate hard things, to listen to hard things, to try a new behavior — the more they will take those same risks in real life, when it matters most.

5 Key Practices to Earn Trust

5 Key Practices to Earn Trust | About leadership | Scoop.it

To trust or not to trust is a decision we all make every day. As leaders, we can influence people’s decision to trust not only us, but others in the organization and even the organization itself. 

Robert Hurley has identified ten specific trust factors in The Decision to Trust. The first three factors are trustor-related: the level of risk tolerance, the trustor’s level of psychological adjustment, and the power position of the trustor.
