The Eight Archetypes of Leadership

The Eight Archetypes of Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it
Which kind of leader are you?

 

Although the ghost of the Great Man still haunts leadership studies, most of us have recognized by now that successful organizations are the product of distributive, collective, and complementary leadership. The first step in putting together such a team is to identify each member of the team’s personality makeup and leadership style, so that strengths and competences can be matched to particular roles and challenges. Getting this match wrong can bring misery to all concerned and cause considerable damage.

We can gleen four purposes for leadership from these archetypes: Adaptation, Alignment, Engagement and Execution

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'.

Waarom empathie de sleutel is tot beter leiderschap

Waarom empathie de sleutel is tot beter leiderschap | About leadership | Scoop.it

adviesbureaus als McKinsey en Ernst & Young onderkennen in publicaties steeds vaker het belang van empathie voor succesvol management. Psycholoog en bestsellerauteur Daniel Goleman noemde empathie tevens een van de belangrijkste vaardigheden van leiders in een artikel in Harvard Business Review. Krznaric, die een Poolse achtergrond heeft, is een van de medeoprichters van de succesvolle School of Life in London waar hij cursussen geeft over hoe wij betekenisvol werk kunnen vinden. In zijn recent uitgekomen boek 'Empathie' gaat hij dieper in op zijn visie op het thema.

5 traits of emotionally intelligent leaders

5 traits of emotionally intelligent leaders | About leadership | Scoop.it

In November 1974, not long after I joined the real estate development firm Trammell Crow Company, Fortune magazine ran a profile of company founder Trammell Crow. Entitled “Trammell Crow Succeeds Because You Want Him To,” the article, by author Wyndham Robertson, captured Crow’s uncanny gift for recruiting people to root for his success. Seven years later, I saw firsthand one of the ways he did this when he launched Wyndham Hotels.

The 7 types of manager

The 7 types of manager | About leadership | Scoop.it

With all the efforts those who are managed, the mass, put forth in a regal and often last attempt to salvage a once positive work environment, at the core of every toxic working environment is the toxic boss, manager or supervisor that breeds it. All roads go back to the manager. And if the manager isn’t willing to change, then it’s a safe bet that nothing will.

That’s why to impact long lasting change, managers need to upgrade their style and approach to managing their people.

8 beliefs that limit your leadership potential

8 beliefs that limit your leadership potential | About leadership | Scoop.it

A follower, a manager, and a leader walk into a bar. They are all thirsty for a beer but the place is very crowded and it may be a while before they are served. Sure enough, many minutes pass and no one helps them. Feeling annoyed but unsure of what he can do, the follower continues to sit patiently for the waiter to arrive. Unhappy with waiting for the inefficient waiter to come by his table, the manager secures a menu from the hostess, analyzes the beer options, assesses the cost of an import vs. domestic beer, and finally signals his urgent readiness to order to the waiter across the room. Recognizing that there are three very thirsty people in her presence, the leader walks across the room to the bartender, communicates her need while extending a healthy tip, and returns to the table with three cold mugs and a frothy pitcher of delicious beer. Her absolutely delighted compatriots rejoice!

How to be a great leader in a complex world | About leadership | Scoop.it

We live in a complex world. Over the past decade, the half-life of knowledge and technology has plummeted, the world economy has turned out to be an interconnected house of cards, and destabilizing factors – from economic inequality to health epidemics to terrorism – have shaken up all sectors of society. It is these conditions that have created the environment of complexity in which leaders from the public and private sectors are now operating.

Invoering van zelfsturende teams mislukt vaak door teveel aandacht voor teams

Zelfsturende teams staat hoog op de management-agenda, toch worstelen veel organisaties bij de invoering én met het werkend krijgen van autonome teams. Het onderzoek op basis van 37 case studies en 165 respondenten in Europa legt de vinger op de zere plek: autonome teams schuren nog vaak met traditionele hiërarchieën en managementconcepten. Dit blijkt uit onderzoek van Rijnconsult.
John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

Er wordt veel aandacht besteed aan het werkend krijgen van het team, maar vaak wordt er voorbij gegaan aan de context waarin het team moet opereren. Hierdoor worden alsnog niet de beoogde resultaten bereikt.

The 15 crucial ‘soft skills’ the best leaders have in common

The 15 crucial ‘soft skills’ the best leaders have in common | About leadership | Scoop.it

In the 1980s and 1990s I placed hundreds of people in management positions. A few dozen got quickly promoted multiple times. I met up with one of them last week who’s now an EVP with an F250 company. Many of the hiring managers who hired these people had similar track records of success. Coincidently, I was at a business conference with a number of them last month. These two events got me thinking about all of these people – the hundreds and the dozens – and what they had in common.

Three ways to thrive in restrictions | ILM – Insight

Three ways to thrive in restrictions | ILM – Insight | About leadership | Scoop.it

So let’s imagine you’re in a regulated and highly competitive industry. You have some influence over the regulator, but not enough power to persuade them to back down. They announce their intention to pass a law that mandates that in a couple of years’ time you will have to reduce use of your key resource by 35%, while simultaneously maintaining the same level of performance and customer experience that has come to characterise the consumer’s strong relationship with your industry.

What do you do? The constraint is so severe it appears almost impossible for anyone to deliver, certainly without compromising the customer experience. Surely your role as a leader is to fight the regulator, and at least get the implementation delayed. Or do you take a different view, that there is a different kind of leadership responsibility, one in which you accept the inevitability, and pose it as a challenge to your team – even look for the potential benefits in it?

6 Leadership Styles, And When You Should Use Them | About leadership | Scoop.it

Taking a team from ordinary to extraordinary means understanding and embracing the difference between management and leadership. According to writer and consultant Peter Drucker, "Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things." 

Manager and leader are two completely different roles, although we often use the terms interchangeably. Managers are facilitators of their team members’ success. They ensure that their people have everything they need to be productive and successful; that they’re well trained, happy and have minimal roadblocks in their path; that they’re being groomed for the next level; that they are recognized for great performance and coached through their challenges.
