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'.

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

Building team trust using a Trust Canvas

Building team trust using a Trust Canvas | About leadership | Scoop.it

Let’s talk about Trust. Rather let’s talk about different instruments and activities that can help to improve team relationships, convey expectations and help people to develop a team agreement.I have noticed that we often talk about the importance of Trust in relation to the team, to subordinates, to managers, to spouses and to politicians. Furthermore, we all know that trust is necessary and important for all people. But how can we build good, long-term relationships in practice?

Great Leaders Develop People

Great Leaders Develop People | About leadership | Scoop.it

The ability to actually develop people over time is one of the most significant differences between leaders and managers. Managers have the mindset to do the best they can with the people they have, while leaders learn how to take the people they have and make them better. Most experienced leaders and coaches know that the best way to begin to influence people’s perceptions of themselves is to affirm their talents and value gradually and very persistently. Most people are not used to another person looking at them and actually seeing more talent and more upside than everyone else perceives. This is exactly what exceptional leaders do.

Leadership and pedagogy have similar qualities. Pedagogy is leading students forward and letting them go as they gain the skills that allow them to do so. Leading is always about people and relationships.

Making Capabilities Explicit is The Work of Leadership

Making Capabilities Explicit is The Work of Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

In “Clarifying Strategy Is Simple. Aligning Your Organisation Is Not.” (The European Business Review, Sept/Oct 2014) the authors make the case that the clearest route to aligning and communicating strategy is through capabilities. That makes articulating and assessing capabilities a crucial new role for leaders.

10 Tough Truths About Leadership

10 Tough Truths About Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

Here on the Forbes leadership team, we get piles of books on the subject of leadership and self-improvement: A few examples from the last week or so:How to be Exceptional, The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking, Say It Like Obama and Win!, Leading Apple With Steve Jobs. It would be more than a full-time job to read and review each one.

So it felt like a relief when a pocket-sized volume, just 6” by 4” and 101 pages, arrived, professing to offer leadership wisdom in a condensed format. Tough Truths: The Ten Leadership Lessons We Don’t Talk About, by San Diego consultant Deirdre Maloney, is short, direct, easy to read and thought-provoking.

Of course, ultimately every great leader is different. Any book claiming that all leaders have even ten characteristics in common is inevitably flawed.  But Maloney’s points are worth considering, and she illustrates them succinctly, embellished by experiences from her own life. The earlier lessons in the book are the most solid and distinctive. Here is a summary of Maloney’s truths, with a bit of critique.

Leadership and Change (Part 1)

Leadership and Change (Part 1) | About leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership is about change, but we all know disastrous stories of leaders whose boats cracked up on the rocks of change, either by leading an organization in a direction that constituents could not or would not accept, or by leading a group into some sort of dead end or cul-de-sac from which it never again emerged, or by leading an organization in so many different directions (read here "mission creep") that no one really knew which way to go or how to prioritize tasks.

What people wished their leaders knew | About leadership | Scoop.it

During my years as a consultant, I have often had people say to me, “I wish my leader knew …” to which I would encourage the individual to speak up and raise an issue of real concern so things might improve. When I did this, I often got the following responses:

“It won’t make a difference.”

“I don’t want to get in trouble.”

“It will just make them mad.”

5 Practices of Values-Based Leaders

5 Practices of Values-Based Leaders | About leadership | Scoop.it

Are your personal values personal? They shouldn’t be if you want to make a difference.

Something personal is not often discussed. It’s rarely discussed, and held close to the chest. Your values need to be unleashed, visible in your actions, apparent in your words. Your team members need to experience your personal values in your interactions. Personal values need to be known and shown. Personal values are extended gracefully.

For values to have meaning and impact, they need to shape your beliefs and behaviors. They are your origins. Whether at home or at work, your personal values don’t change. They are woven into your being. They shape how you make sense of the world. But be mindful of biases that trick you to believe and act in ways that lead you astray from what you stand for.

So, it’s with an eye on the aspirational nature of values and on the deception we are prone to fall for, after all, we are human and flawed, that habits of values-based leaders become crucial. The habits of values-based leaders sharpen the clarity of personal values and uphold our courage to follow them.

In recent years, few terms have been as overused and misunderstood as “big data.” From making predictions about massive flu outbreaks with a Google flu trends solution, to tracking shopping trends and directing savings to customers, to making real-time trading decisions that impact companies’ and individuals’ bottom line positions — data has become the key to staying competitive in today’s global economy.

The Five Dimensions of Responsible Leadership

The Five Dimensions of Responsible Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

Since the 2008 financial crisis, the global chorus of voices questioning capitalism has grown steadily louder. It is difficult indeed to reconcile neoliberal optimism about homo economicus with the precipitous slide of the global economy, and the folly of the subprime lending bubble. And the problems that have deepened in the last six years – income inequality, unemployment, the threat of environmental crises brought on by human activity — do not track with the neoclassical notion of the benign, self-correcting global market.  An article in the September 2014 edition of McKinsey Quarterly, of all publications, crystallised this crisis of conscience, calling into question “our long-held assumptions about how and why the system [i.e., capitalism] works.”

Unfortunately, our business and political leaders have been slow to recognise the need for change, the frequent appearance of buzzwords such as “CSR” and “sustainability” in management literature notwithstanding. As a result, public trust in business and government hit historic lows in the years following the Great Recession.

5 Great Questions The Best Leaders Ask Themselves

5 Great Questions The Best Leaders Ask Themselves | About leadership | Scoop.it

Apparently, few people ask leaders questions about leadership.

Since launching the Your Leadership Story Podcast with my business partner, David Atchison, we have had a great time interviewing exceptional leaders. Without exception, these leaders have  said, “No one has ever asked me that before” to at least some of our questions. That’s unfortunate because these leaders had great answers. All they needed was someone to ask the questions. In a perfect world I can imagine, more people would ask leaders great leadership questions. Doing so would help those asking the questions while helping the leaders reflect on their experiences. Since I cannot control how many people ask leadership questions, I’m opting for an alternative route. If you’re a leader and want to become even more effective, take the initiative and ask yourself some great leadership questions. To get you started, here are some questions David and I have enjoyed asking on Your Leadership Story.

Doing Less, Leading More

Doing Less, Leading More | About leadership | Scoop.it

Our first accomplishments as professionals are usually rooted in our skill as individual contributors. In most fields we add value in the early stages of our careers by getting things done. We’re fast, we’re efficient, and we do high-quality work. In a word, we’re doers. But when we carry this mindset into our first leadership roles, we confuse doing with leading. We believe that by working longer, harder, and smarter than our team, we’ll inspire by example.  Sometimes this has the desired effect–as Daniel Goleman wrote in his HBR article “Leadership that Gets Results,” this “pacesetting” leadership style “works well when all employees are self-motivated, highly competent, and need little direction or coordination.” But the pacesetting style can also carry a high cost – Goleman notes that it “destroys climate [and] many employees feel overwhelmed by the pacesetter’s demands.”

Why the world in 2015 faces a leadership crisis | About leadership | Scoop.it

A startling 86% of respondents to the Survey on the Global Agenda agree that we have a leadership crisis in the world today. Why would they say this? Perhaps because the international community has largely failed to address any major global issue in recent years. It has failed to deal with global warming, then barely dealt with the failure of the global economy, which has caused such severe problems in North America and Europe. Meanwhile violence has been left to fester in the Middle East, the region our Survey showed is most affected by, and concerned about this problem. So why are we suffering such a lack of leadership?

Tomorrow’s Leaders Need Diverse Challenges Today

Tomorrow’s Leaders Need Diverse Challenges Today | About leadership | Scoop.it

Why do employees typically stay on a silo-bound career path, moving ever upward in the same function or business unit? To start, managers may not want to lose their most talented employees to other parts of the business, and they can be reluctant to take a chance on someone from another division, even if the individual has a great reputation. Employees, too, are often skeptical about a new boss who arrives without the “right background” for the job and “without a clue” about how things work around here. Ambitious, high-potential managers tend to see a direct upward trajectory as the shortest route to the executive suite; lateral moves into other functions or to take on special projects seem like unnecessary detours.
