Chatsworth Consulting Group | Lead with your ears not your tongue | About leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever been in the midst of a conversation, and realized you were just waiting for the other person to take a breath so that you could share your next thought, or dispute their last statement? Have you ever spent time with a good friend, a family member, or someone on your team at work – and when you walked away from them you found yourself wondering how they were or what they said…because you spoke so often that you didn’t give them a chance to share anything with you?

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

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.

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.

Why Special Ops Stopped Relying So Much on Top-Down Leadership

Why Special Ops Stopped Relying So Much on Top-Down Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

When Fredrick Winslow Taylor designed the world’s first modern assembly line and forever changed industry, persuasion was the last thing on his mind. Taylor believed assembly line workers simply needed clear direction on how to execute prescribed tasks. His belief, which manifested in both physical design and organizational structures during the decades that followed, was that the human factor should be removed from the production equation to the greatest extent possible. Stopwatch and measuring tape in hand, Taylor designed and advocated for systems that maximized efficiency and predictability through vertical integration and top-down control. And with that, the 20thcentury’s great quest for bureaucratic efficiency began.

For many of us, the greatest barrier we face is internal. Our habits – our way of thinking, communicating and doing, for example – keep us stuck where we are now. We become frustrated. We spend too much time on unfruitful efforts. We do not evolve.

Zombie Employees Are Killing Your Business, And You’re Creating Them

Zombie Employees Are Killing Your Business, And You’re Creating Them | About leadership | Scoop.it

If going to work feels like walking onto the set of “The Walking Dead,” leadership might be the cause of your office’s zombie apocalypse. Emphasizing the tasks you need employees to complete — instead of the end goals — can produce that effect.

John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Sue Bingham. When leaders show gratitude in a meaningful way, it elevates employees’ spirits, shows them they’re valued and appreciated, and gives context to the hard work they do every day. But you have to do more than say “good job” at the end of a hard day.

The Hard Work of Soft Power

The Hard Work of Soft Power | About leadership | Scoop.it

In the face of globalisation, growth in emerging markets, and increasingly multi-ethnic workplaces, the top-down management approach of decades past no longer serves all organisational environments. Instead, many companies find themselves needing to develop high-performance teams, under the guidance of inclusive leaders who focus on both personal and professional success.

John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

“Inclusive leadership starts with an intention of wanting the best for the world, not necessarily the best in the world. It is a form of leadership that looks deeply into the role of the leader as a custodian of values, character and resources,” says Kurt April, Professor of Leadership, Diversity and Inclusion at the UCT Graduate School of Business and Associate Fellow of Said Business School (University of Oxford).

Self-Awareness: The Key to Authentic Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

Who you are, is how you lead.Leadership is about authenticity. Who you are is how you lead. I have seen many leaders crumble by the facades they present. When the pressure is on, the "real person" comes out. Reverting back to type is a common phrase that describes this behaviour. In my experience, I have found people revert back to type, only when they haven't taken their previous errors and modified their behaviours.
