(From the article): Highly effective leaders are decisive when called upon to make tough calls quickly and confidently. Take a moment to assess a difficult situation and then calmly and rationally consider your options. As soon as you have the information you need to make an informed decision, make it. Don't let fear of being wrong prevent you from making what you know is the right call.

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

Following up on my post around the 7 Principles of The Future Employee, I wanted to share another concept which is the 10 Principles of The Future Manager. When it comes to the future of work it’s not just employees that are changing, managers are also having to change the ways in which they lead and in fact are HAVING to become leaders. These are 10 core principles or characteristics that managers will and must possess going forward. This image is taken from my book, The Future of Work.

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

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.

Loved this article scooped by John Lasschuit! What intrigued me was the diagram plotting the relationships. As a Mind Map devotee, it was always going to lure me in! What was even more interesting was the notion of connective leadership. Great leaders are communicators; they work with and through people and they build relationships that, in turn, develop further relationships. If they don't, they are not great leaders!

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.

“It won’t make a difference.”

“I don’t want to get in trouble.”

“It will just make them mad.”

Transformational Leadership - The Latest Thinking in Leading Effective Teams

Transformational Leadership - The Latest Thinking in Leading Effective Teams | About leadership | Scoop.it

Much of modern day leadership thinking is based around the theory of transformational leadership, of which MacGregor Burns first introduced this concept in 1978, in his book called, ‘Leadership’.

Burns was one of the first gurus to identify that true leadership not only creates change and achieves goals within his or her environment, but changes the people and their actions for the better as well.

Imagine a time in your life, when you have been truly inspired by your boss. Perhaps you felt happy to follow his or her lead? You probably felt that the ambiance was perfect and you were empowered to learn and try new things.

Transformational leadership often provides the right make up to allow a team to flourish. It effectively takes all the leadership styles developed over the years and combines them to form one leadership theory that encapsulates leading through inspiring.
