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'.

De organisatiekannibaal

De organisatiekannibaal | About leadership | Scoop.it

Stel je eens voor: een manager die er uitziet als lid van een stam uit de oudheid, tatoeages op vreemde plaatsen, botje door de neus, lendendoek of nog iets minder rond het middel en ritueel dansend rond een grote kookpot die gevuld is met mensenvlees. Kortom, de manager als kannibaal! Oké, buiten het carnaval zal dit niet letterlijk gebeuren! Hoewel, sommige managers zitten hier niet ver vandaan qua uiterlijk wanneer zij door een bedrijfspand stieren met bloeddoorlopen ogen en bijna schuimbekkend van woede! En waarom? Omdat het niet gaat zoals het volgens hen zou ‘moeten’.

Values Based Leader

Values Based Leader | About leadership | Scoop.it
At Luck Companies we believe all human beings have extraordinary potential. And as leaders, we believe we have the ability to cultivate that potential in others, and positively impact the lives of those around us. To do so requires us, the leaders, to make a conscious choice to work first on ourselves, ensuring our own state of awareness and alignment to in turn ignite the potential in others.

The Five Signs of a Positive Leader

The Five Signs of a Positive Leader | About leadership | Scoop.it

Do you remember a time when you felt energized and inspired by a positive leader?  What inspired you about that person? How did they lead the organization?

When I began my career journey in the hospitality field, I was lucky to be surrounded by positive leaders. When I was still in college, I was working at a small extended stay Marriott hotel.  My first manager at that hotel was Robin.  Although we were a smaller hotel with only had about 50 employees, Robin knew how to create a positive culture to inspire people to come to work every day.

Developing Mindful Leaders

Developing Mindful Leaders | About leadership | Scoop.it

Organizations invest billions annually on a success curriculum known as “leadership development,” which ends up leaving so much on the table. Training and development programs almost universally focus factory-like on inputs and outputs — absorb curriculum, check a box; learn a skill, advance a rung; submit to assessment, fix a problem. Likewise, they leave too many people behind with an elite selection process that fast-tracks “hi-pos” and essentially discards the rest. And they leave most people cold with flavor of the month remedies, off sites, immersions, and excursions — which produce little more than a grim legacy of fat binders gathering dust on shelves.

Hoe je als lijder na een pak rammel als leider zegevierend op kunt staan...

De Europesche verkiezingen zijn net afgerond. Met een opkomst percentage van slecht 37% in Nederland zet mij dat aan het denken: wat is de reden waarom mensen niet eens meer de moeite nemen om te stemmen? Zien ze het belang niet? Zijn ze teleurgesteld in de huidige zittende politieke partijen? Hebben de partijen het belang niet goed gecommuniceerd? Willen ze niet bijdragen aan 'de verrijking aan de top'?

How Different Cultures Perceive Effective Leadership

How Different Cultures Perceive Effective Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

Cultural differences matter in leadership and the most effective leaders embrace them.

 

In a globalised work environment, having a multinational team is becoming the norm. Whether a leader is “Eastern” or “Western” will influence how they interact with their employees. These differences can be stark and sometimes frustrating. Shyness might be considered rude in some cultures. Aggression might seem overwhelming to others even though it’s par for the course where they come from.

Great Leaders Don't Have to Know All the Answers

Great Leaders Don't Have to Know All the Answers | About leadership | Scoop.it
Guest post by Robert S. Kaplan

 

Everyone thinks successful leaders always know what to say and the right course to take. They don’t. But they do know the right questions to ask.

Many people believe that great leaders are simply blessed with a knack for having the right answers. They have a natural instinct for leadership because they were born with superior talents, skills, insight and charisma. These executives belong to a rarefied species of people who are able to avoid periods of doubt and confusion and are somehow able to avoid significant setbacks. In short, these people aren’t like the rest of us.

While this image may be appealing, the fact is that the reality is far more complicated.

An All-Call for a New Style of Leadership

An All-Call for a New Style of Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it

Over the past 10 years, the world has changed dramatically. The enormous increases in globalization and in technology, the power of “social media” to upend everything from buying behavior to political campaigns, the explosion of information resulting in increased customer knowledge and expectations are just some of the significant developments that forever changed the way we conduct business. Why then are managers puzzled by employees who are highly motivated outside of work but show little initiative on the job; people who put in the time but no energy; people who spend more time on their resumes than on the activities at hand. A management style that produces these results obviously won’t be enough to compete in today’s global economy, especially given changes taking place in the attitudes of workers today.

De afkickende manager

De afkickende manager | About leadership | Scoop.it

Een nieuw fenomeen gaat op ons afkomen, namelijk 'afkickende managers'. Hordes met managers, die last hebben van de gediagnosticeerde aandoening MACC (Klik hier om in 'De organisatiekannibaal meer voor info te lezen over deze aandoening), zijn namelijk gewend te handelen op basis van het verslavende goedje ‘macht’. Deze verslaving wordt gecompleteerd door de continue indoctrinatie vanuit ‘status- en gelddenken’. En om het nog eens extra verwarrend te maken wordt ‘management’ door deze managers en hun ja-knikkende omgeving zeer regelmatig gekoppeld aan ‘leiderschap’. Vreemd want dit zijn toch twee heel verschillende zaken. Het verschil begint in ieder geval met het gegeven dat leiderschap rolgebonden en niet functiegebonden is. Toch lastig te accepteren voor degenen die het ‘Ik-denken’ hebben omarmd en slechts hiërarchisch kunnen of willen redeneren.

The Best Leaders Are Humble Leaders

The Best Leaders Are Humble Leaders | About leadership | Scoop.it
New research suggests that altruism makes employees more innovative and engaged.

 

In a global marketplace where problems are increasingly complex, no one person will ever have all the answers. That’s why Google’s SVP of People Operations, Lazlo Bock, says humility is one of the traits he’s looking for in new hires. “Your end goal,” explained Bock, “is what can we do together to problem-solve. I’ve contributed my piece, and then I step back.” And it is not just humility in creating space for others to contribute, says Bock—it’s “intellectual humility. Without humility, you are unable to learn.”

Why leaders must learn to say no | Training Journal

Why leaders must learn to say no | Training Journal | About leadership | Scoop.it
Ambitious and creative by nature, most leaders find it virtually impossible to walk away from good ideas or turn down opportunities. Instinctively, those at the highest levels always want to do more – after all, this characteristic is often one of the reasons they came to hold their position in the first place. Their hunger to achieve new goals – and pursue them simultaneously - can be particularly strong in situations like we’re facing now, namely an upturn in the economy which leaders are eager to take full advantage of. However, while well-intended, it’s an approach that’s usually doomed to fail.  The associated lack of focus generally leads to confusion amongst teams who struggle to combine additional goals with the ‘business as usual’ activities that keep their organisations running. Without doubt, leaders under-estimate the force represented by these competing everyday priorities at their peril. In fact it’s so strong that FranklinCovey has termed it the whirlwind and it will always win in a match against any enthusiastic leader armed with a long list of new strategic goals.
