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'.

How Leaders Can Think More Strategically

How Leaders Can Think More Strategically | About leadership | Scoop.it

In order to grow your business, sometimes you need to think more strategically. The strategies you used five years ago might not be applicable in today’s business world. In order to learn about how to be more strategic, I spoke to Davide Sola, the author of How to Think Strategically.

Sola is a professor of Strategy and Management at ESCP Europe and visiting faculty at Business School in Finland, India and Italy. He is also a Principal at 3H Partners, who work with multinational organisations and governments in Europe, US and Africa.

In this brief interview, he talks about how leaders can be more creative, why most people don’t understand business strategy and more.

The Promise and Peril of the Internet of Things

Since 1969, when the first bit of data was transmitted over what would come to be known as the Internet, that global network has evolved from linking mainframe computers to connecting personal computers and now mobile devices. By 2010, the number of computers on the Internet had surpassed the number of people on earth.

Do We Really Understand Leadership? | Leadership Principles

Do We Really Understand Leadership? | Leadership Principles | About leadership | Scoop.it

I just applied for a job recently where they were looking for someone to lead a department, unfortunately I got turned down without even getting an interview.


So I followed up to ask why 

 

The response I got was that I lacked the technical expertise that they were looking for and I didn’t have enough experience in their particular market sectors.

 

However, on the job description these were not they key skills they were looking for.

 

In the job advert it said. ‘We’re looking for someone to come in and help turn this department around, someone who has excellent leadership skills, who can create a vision, which will inspire the team and re-ignite their passions’.

 

Reflecting on the keys skills needed these are clearly leadership skills: The ability to create a vision; the ability to inspire and re-ignite passions; yet the reasons I was rejected without an interview were all management related, not leadership related.

Leiderschap is leren ‘zien en luisteren’ | About leadership | Scoop.it
Ik ben over het algemeen geen fan van allerlei reality-soaps en undercoverprogramma’s. Toch kom je soms wel eens een inspirerende uitzending tegen. Een tijd geleden kwam ik bijvoorbeeld al zappend terecht bij het programma ‘Undercover Boss’. Tijdens de betreffende aflevering ging Scott Sibella, in het normale leven opperhoofd van het MGM Grand Casino in Vegas, een week undercover op de werkvloer. De beste man wist op bepaalde gebieden niet wat hij meemaakte. Van slechte anti-rookvoorzieningen in de gokruimtes, waar werknemers last van hadden, tot nieuw geïmplementeerde computersystemen bij de receptie, die veel trager waren dan de vorige systemen met als gevolg geïrriteerde klanten en continue excuserende werknemers. Het was voor hem een les in luisteren en leren! Even los van het hoge ‘applaudisseer voor de grote leider’ gehalte aan het einde gaf het programma mij een aantal mooie inzichten.

3 Types of Leaders Who Never Succeed

3 Types of Leaders Who Never Succeed | About leadership | Scoop.it
Do you rise again and again to the very edge of success, only to fall back down? You may be guilty of one of these leadership styles.

 

It's an oft-quoted leadership trope: Because of his sin in striking the rock twice, Moses never lived to see his people into the Promised Land. That role fell instead to Joshua, despite Moses having dedicated his life to paving the way, including those 40 years spent in the wilderness.

 

Business leaders can, sadly, befall the same fate. Call them the Never-Gonna-Get-There Leader. The saddest part is that unlike Moses, for these perennially unfulfilled leaders, there's no real reason why it should be so--except for their own self imposed limitations.

How to select the best hybrid cloud provider for your firm

How to select the best hybrid cloud provider for your firm | About leadership | Scoop.it

A successful shift towards a hybrid cloud corporate environment requires a new approach to trust throughout the organisation.

For IT, a well-orchestrated hybrid cloud strategy can support better communication and collaboration between IT teams.

 

Therefore, it is becoming more critical for enterprise IT firms to find hybrid cloud providers that have the right migration tooling to enable seamless relocation of existing services between dedicated private cloud and public cloud infrastructures, without lengthy or unplanned disruption to live service.

 

The governance of a successful shift to the hybrid cloud corporate environment also requires a new approach to trust throughout the organisation.

But the key statistic revealed by the report is that managers, executives, and officials in these firms only have an engagement level of 36 percent--just 6 percent higher than the workforce.

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

Not long ago, most discussions of leadership were about leaders – their personality traits, how to identify and groom those with ‘leadership potential,’ and what were the skills that leaders employed.

 

Leadership theorists nowadays stress authenticity, EQ and relationships. This makes intuitive sense. But it isn’t just a fad; there is a solid reason behind the shift. It is driven by changes in the world. Above all, it reflects the growing importance of trust.

(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.

Ethical leadership - do things right, do the right thing | HRZone

Ethical leadership - do things right, do the right thing | HRZone | About leadership | Scoop.it

Work is all about execution. It’s about getting things done, meeting the deadline, collecting the money, changing the organization. The discipline is there every month in the cash flow: get any part of the execution wrong, and your organization will see it and feel it at the end of the month. But it is also there in the attitudes of colleagues that change over time.

 

Yet execution - the ability to make things happen and bring them to completion - is a skill that schools, business schools and short courses tend not to teach. The skill of getting things done is not an occult art: it can be learned, practiced and improved. The key is leadership and what are called “soft skills”. Here is how.

From the post: These “soft skills” actually have little to do with management; they are all about leadership. As a matter of fact, management is becoming increasingly mechanized by email, shared data, better communications. Management is about doing things right.  But leadership is about doing the right thing – morally, emotionally, tactically - for the organization.

We live in a plug-in-play world. The gadget comes with an instructional manual but few of us take the time to read it. Our collective impatience is too strong. We want to open the box and start using it. If there’s a problem, we’ll call someone or research the answer online. But what do we do when we can’t figure out how people work? There is no owner’s manual with human interaction and relationships. Decades of experience can only give us a guide but each person is wired and motivated differently. We can’t simply apply one rule for all yet often the business world tries to do just that.
