Is 'great followership' the real secret to great leadership? | About leadership | Scoop.it
Leaders don’t accomplish the mission. Followers do. So why is it that all the attention, time, money, and resources are spent on developing leaders? Why aren’t we also developing great followers?

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” | 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

Leiderschap is toch geen snel aangeleerd trucje? | About leadership | Scoop.it
Het lijkt soms net zo onontkoombaar als plakkerige kauwgom op de stoep. Je zet de televisie aan en programma’s met bekende professionals uit de wereld van sterrenrestaurants, zoals Herman den Blijker, Gordon ‘f**k’ Ramsay en Fernando Peire, komen in beeld. Deze topkoks houden zich schijnbaar onvermoeibaar bezig met het ‘redden’ van lokale restaurants en zijn dagelijks op de kijkbuis te zien. Vanuit de optiek van leiderschap en crisismanagement zijn deze programma’s vaak hilarisch en leerzaam tegelijkertijd.

Leadership By Virtue: Dào (Dao, Tao) – the Way | About leadership | Scoop.it

Dào is usually translated as way, road, channel, path, doctrine, or line. Chinese language is a tonal language so we must not confuse Dào with Dǎo, although for us it sounds the same. The latter, Dǎo, has an entirely different meaning: to lead, to transform, to guide, to conduct and or to direct.

What Coaching Leaders Do Differently

What Coaching Leaders Do Differently | About leadership | Scoop.it

The term “coaching” has been trending as a corporate buzzword for some time now. We’re all familiar with athletics coaches. But when someone advises us to find a coach to learn a new skill or solve problem, it’s usually in a professional context. What does it actually mean to coach someone?

The interesting thing about coaching is how dynamic of a leadership role it is. Supervisors can coach. Mentors can coach. Peers can coach. Executive coaches can coach (obviously). Just about anyone can coach at one time or another.

Whether you have the opportunity to be coached or to be a coach, let’s take a look at six things coaching leaders do that set them apart.

Work Zombies

Work Zombies | About leadership | Scoop.it

Zombies are fictional creatures, typically depicted as mindless, reanimated human corpses with a hunger for human flesh. In popular culture, zombies are people who have died and been reanimated as mindless, nearly invulnerable monsters that band together and attack the living. They are also known as “the living dead,” “the walking dead,” or “the undead.” Not to mention, the first time I saw zombies they were dancing in sync with music in the video “Thriller”, which scared the breakfast out of me.

Creating A Culture Of Engagement

Creating A Culture Of Engagement | About leadership | Scoop.it

“Engagement comes from leaders. People look to leadership to set the tone and expectations,” says Sangeeta Agrawal, a Gallup consultant. “If executives don’t set the stage and practice what they preach about engagement, it’ll be harder for others to follow”… The numbers support this. Managers who are directly supervised by highly engaged executive teams are 39% more likely to be engaged than managers who are supervised by executive teams with below-average engagement.”

We Need Better Managers, Not More Technocrats

We Need Better Managers, Not More Technocrats | About leadership | Scoop.it

Digital technology is the biggest agitator of the business world today. Mobile technology, social media, cloud computing, embedded devices, big data, and analytics have radically changed the nature of work and competition.  And digital innovations will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Technology has tremendous potential to be the engine of increasing human, organizational, and economic prosperity.

 

However, digital technology is not the true story. Digital transformation is. Fulfilling technology’s potential will require leaders to recreate the way their institutions operate in a world of digital ubiquity. Leaders need to engage their people in a process of redefining how they work and what their companies do. Digital transformation is therefore the key managerial imperative for today’s business leaders.

HR Magazine - Exploring four alternative leadership models

HR Magazine - Exploring four alternative leadership models | About leadership | Scoop.it

According to a 2011 study by Opportunity Now, inclusive leadership is good for business: 84% of respondents said it improves motivation, 83% loyalty and 81% productivity and performance.

 

Opportunity Now’s director Kathryn Nawrockyi defines inclusive leaders as exhibiting three main behaviours. “Firstly, adaptability,” she says. “They are aware of differences and similarities between people, viewing it as a strength. Secondly, they have the ability to seek out and develop diverse talent. Thirdly, they are good at building inclusive relationships; they remain a leader without letting hierarchy be a barrier to a relationship.”

Don't Be a "Water Bucket" Leader

Don't Be a "Water Bucket" Leader | About leadership | Scoop.it

Command in the U.S. Army, regardless of echelon, is one of the greatest privileges (and stressors) bestowed upon commissioned officers. Unfortunately, many of us seem to stumble through these small windows of our military careers.  Even with all the early mornings, late nights, and family sacrifices that we endure, we don’t seem to make the impact or create the legacy that we originally envisioned.  Usually, it’s after these windows of leadership are closed that we realize there was a lot of activity (and good intentions), but little progress.   I call this “water bucket” leadership.

 

A “water bucket” leader is someone whose leadership approach can be likened to sticking a hand into a bucket of water and creating a stir by splashing it around. Eventually, the leader pulls their hand out, and when they do, the water quickly returns to it’s original state. It’s as if they never existed. Even though there was a lot of activity, in the end, the bucket of water looks no different than it did before

The look of a leader

The look of a leader | About leadership | Scoop.it

IN GORILLA society, power belongs to silverback males. These splendid creatures have numerous status markers besides their back hair: they are bigger than the rest of their band, strike space-filling postures, produce deeper sounds, thump their chests lustily and, in general, exude an air of physical fitness. Things are not that different in the corporate world. The typical chief executive is more than six feet tall, has a deep voice, a good posture, a touch of grey in his thick, lustrous hair and, for his age, a fit body. Bosses spread themselves out behind their large desks. They stand tall when talking to subordinates. Their conversation is laden with prestige pauses and declarative statements.

Integrity First: Not An Expression...A Core Value!

Integrity First: Not An Expression...A Core Value! | About leadership | Scoop.it

The USAF has the expression, “Integrity First” as the first of its stated core values. But in the years since these core values were first stated, we may have forgotten how important these core values are to each and every one of us. Integrity can’t be applied selectively. In my post Air Force employment, I have seen how important integrity is in the general business world. I am glad that our senior leaders continue to live by our Air Force values.

Is integrity the secret to great leadership?

Is integrity the secret to great leadership? | About leadership | Scoop.it

If your spouse claims that time with the family is a priority but spends every weekend on the golf course, you might rightfully conclude that he’s really more interested in lowering his handicap than raising his child. If a business leaders pretend that customer service is the top priority, but won’t ever risk profits to delight a client, they have probably chosen to sacrifice tomorrow’s customer for today’s gain. Such hollow promises create phony hopes, destroying trust and causing untold damage to any organization.

The actions of a business are its value statement. Actions speak volumes about what really matters most – not what should matter, not what we wish mattered, but what really does matter to us. They swamp mission statements, speeches or memos, and they eclipse intentions.

The Values of “Insightfully Aware” Leaders

The Values of “Insightfully Aware” Leaders | About leadership | Scoop.it

Values are the principles and standards that motivate us in life. They are our basic convictions; our belief that tells us what is right, good, or worthy. They guide our thinking and actions like an internal compass.

Values serve as standards through which all decisions are assessed. They are the “givens” that map out the choices before and during the decision-making process. They are with us throughout the journey of leadership.

Can content make you a thought leader? (And how to measure it) | About leadership | Scoop.it

Marketing through thought leadership is totally in right now. It makes sense: Every business wants to be perceived as a leader, respected by customers and envied by competition. And now web algorithms – both for search and social media – try to reward “authorities” with wider reach.

 

The problem with striving for “thought leadership” lies in its subjective definition: Everyone wants to be a leader, but no one knows exactly how to gauge or prove their thought leader status.

TRAPPED IN A LOSE-LOSE LEADERSHIP DILEMMA

You’ve got a tough choice. The performance feedback is in and the message is clear: you’ve been micro-managing your people. They complain about feeling suffocated by the systems and processes you’ve put in place to ensure consistent, quality work. It’s the one blemish on your otherwise positive annual review. You’re told it’s the only thing standing between you and your much-coveted promotion to area manager. But this is one of your biggest strengths. You’ve always been proud to say, “Predictable processes lead to predictable results.” You’re told however that too much of a good thing has the same result as too little of it: ineffective leadership. You need to become more flexible.
