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'.

New Blogging Series: “New Leadership in the New Economy: Diversity Matters”

New Blogging Series: “New Leadership in the New Economy: Diversity Matters” | About leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership is no longer defined by years spent in the industry, seniority with the company or the number of gray hairs on our heads. Innovation and social strategies play an increasing role in who wins – and who gets left behind. Often by necessity, leadership is getting younger, stronger and more diverse

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 14, 6:55 PM

I suspect diversity has always mattered. Perhaps we are more aware of that need. What I find intriguing is how often diversity is shut down in the echo chambers we call organizations.

Why you might be more intelligent than your boss

Why you might be more intelligent than your boss | About leadership | Scoop.it

Where did the idea that a high IQ is necessary to be an effective leader come from? It may be simply that we perceive leaders as smarter than they really are, simply because we know they’re powerful and assume they must be really intelligent to have amassed all that power.

The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis

The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis | About leadership | Scoop.it

Through the years, I’ve heard dozens of management experts enumerate the qualities of great leaders. Seldom, though, do they speak plainly about the “diseases” of leadership. The Pope is more forthright. He understands that as human beings we have certain proclivities — not all of them noble. Nevertheless, leaders should be held to a high standard, since their scope of influence makes their ailments particularly infectious.

Don’t Become an Invisible Leader in Your Busiest TimesSwitch & Shift

Don’t Become an Invisible Leader in Your Busiest TimesSwitch & Shift | About leadership | Scoop.it

Great leadership requires a whole lot more than hard work. Sure, the ability to buckle down and plow through tasks is great, but disappearing into the shadows while doing so is something I call “invisible leadership” — managing like Casper the Friendly Ghost.

These folks have given up on inspiring their crews, influencing other departments, and enacting companywide change management. Instead, they stay in their swim lane and complete their daily responsibilities without stepping on toes.

It’s low-emissions leadership. We don’t need this type of leadership. We actually want our leaders to leave a visible footprint.

Here’s to the Rebellious Leaders

Here’s to the Rebellious Leaders | About leadership | Scoop.it

As a leader, it’s easy to get into a pattern of repetition, of behaving as others have done before. But while this might feel safe and easy it is no way to achieve anything new or make a mark on the world. No one remembers the placeholder leaders, those who just kept things as they were. The real leaders are the ones who break with convention. They are the rebels.

John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Mark Lukens. Rebellion is thoughtful, but to have an impact thought is not enough. A rebel leader must take their iconoclastic thinking and apply it to the world, taking risks to make a change.

Your Team Can’t Read Your Mind

Your Team Can’t Read Your Mind | About leadership | Scoop.it

When you live or work with people for a while, it’s easy to assume that they can read your mind and that you can read theirs. Whether it’s a spouse or a long-time team member, you may presume that you know what they’re thinking and that you can save time and effort by not having to spell everything out. Unfortunately, though, mind reading is a risky short cut, and is more likely to backfire than not.
