Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 9, 2014 10:45 AM

Everything we need to know is already there. The challenge is shaking free from what shackles us in deeply held beliefs.

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”

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, 2015 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.

Something I found interesting. Often we praise achievement, and not so much the effort it took to get there. I wonder if it encourages people to do better in the process while working toward the final result.

Is Empathy The Next Great Management Trend? - OPENforBusiness

Is Empathy The Next Great Management Trend? - OPENforBusiness | About leadership | Scoop.it
Most organizations have long been driven by a mix of execution and expertise. What if empathy is the next great management trend, though?
John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Ted Bauer. I’m not entirely sure “empathy” will be the third arc of managerial styles, because … I think “The Temple of Busy” might kind of drown empathy in the flood. But I’m hopefully that if we moved from execution to expertise and we want to keep that alliterative train going, the third stop should be empathy.

IoT: A Fog Cloud Computing Model - OpenMind

IoT: A Fog Cloud Computing Model - OpenMind | About leadership | Scoop.it

Internet of Things (IoT) represents a remarkable transformation of the way in which our world will soon interact. Much like the World Wide Web connected computers to networks, and the next evolution connected people to the Internet and other people, IoT looks poised to interconnect devices, people, environments, virtual objects and machines in ways that only science fiction writers could have imagined.

John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Ahmed Banafa. The term fog computing is also referred to as “edge computing,” which essentially means that rather than hosting and working from a centralized cloud, fog systems operate on network ends. That concentration means that data can be processed locally in smart devices rather than being sent to the cloud for processing. It’s one approach to dealing with the Internet of Things (IoT).

Why By-the-Numbers Management Doesn't Work

Why By-the-Numbers Management Doesn't Work | About leadership | Scoop.it

Much of what present day corporate leadership is based on is metrics-driven. As they say, "You can't manage what you can't measure." I find this adage increasingly wrong-headed. There are a huge number of important things that can't be measured. 20th century American management guru, statistician, and author, W. Edwards Deming says simply, "It is wrong to suppose that if you can't measure it, you can't manage it -- A costly myth."

How to Make your Big Business more Agile

How to Make your Big Business more Agile | About leadership | Scoop.it

This statement of former CEO and Chairman of General Electric, Jack Welch, has never been more meaningful: “if the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near.”

And if somehow you are still questioning whether you should accelerate your game, here are two cases (out of the many popping up daily), which crystallize the answer – Netflix and Über.

But let me set the record straight: this is not an article about how ‘small is beautiful,’ nor is it about how young players are out-innovating old ones. It’s more intricate than that – it’s about how one can be agile and big at the same time. Or rather, it’s about how does one become agile when one is already (too) big?

The change we feel is broad, which is why our adaptation must be holistic.

To Become a Leader, Think Beyond Your Role | About leadership | Scoop.it


The world is full of people with opinions. Television, radio, and other media are brimming over with commentators making suggestions and offering seemingly authoritative advice to government officials and corporate executives about what they ought to do. At dinners and cocktail parties — and around the water cooler at work — we talk about what others should do or should have done, or the flaws of our bosses.

“Leadership Qualities” vs. Competence: Which Matters More?

“Leadership Qualities” vs. Competence: Which Matters More? | About leadership | Scoop.it

There’s sometimes a disconnect between how we talk about leadership qualities (we tend to use words like authoritypower, and emotional intelligence) and what we actually require from the people leading teams and other working groups (arguably, competence and a deep knowledge of the specific work that needs to get done). In a forthcoming Journal of Applied Psychology article, researchers from Stanford and Erasmus University explore which set of qualities matters most to team performance. The paper also looks at when power differences contribute to team success, and when they damage it.

Discover the Power of Potential Quotient - PQ

Discover the Power of Potential Quotient - PQ | About leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever measured your Potential Quotient? Do you even know that PQ is?

Everyone is familiar with IQ and what it measures, and EQ (Emotional Intelligence) is a common term in personal development. Now we are turning our focus not only to products and services, but to people and purpose. In order to do this the world needs to understand potential … specifically Influence Potential, known as your Potential Quotient or PQ.

In a recent Time cover article, Questions to Answer in the Age of Optimized, Eliza Gray points to the newest trend in hiring: personality testing for all applicants. Gray writes:

“The New Rage for personality testing is being driven by a collision of two of the business world’s hottest trends. The first is Big Data [collecting as much data as possible]…the second…is called analytics [wherein data patterns are analyzed] to optimize performance.”
