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'.

Are You Ready to Apply For an Executive Role?

Are You Ready to Apply For an Executive Role? | About leadership | Scoop.it

Considering we live in an age that has been increasingly defined by a heightened sense of competition and specialisation, it is no wonder that acquiring an executive position has become so coveted in the employment market. An executive role allows further room for upward mobility, a greater control over internal decisions and even the possibility to shape a company’s direction and vision. However, taking the leap into this field is not as simple as submitting a resume and waiting for a reply. Rather, a certain approach needs to be taken and a unique mindset is absolutely necessary. So, it proves wise to briefly examine some sure-fire methods for you to secure a rewarding executive position.

ReadySetLead!: Naked Leadership

ReadySetLead!: Naked Leadership | About leadership | Scoop.it
Like many of us back in high school, there were many quips or phrases that we often used in our communication with friends. Some were innocent and others not so much. However, there was one particular saying of which I’m not sure of the origin or the real intent, but it was nonetheless a phrase often uttered… party naked. I don’t know what made me recall this expression all these years later, but it did get me thinking about leading naked. Not in the real sense of streaking around our organizations with no clothes on, but in the metaphorical sense of being transparent or unadorned in our leadership style. A quick Google search of the topic revealed that David Bentley andMark Gregory have books titled Naked Leadership and David Taylor has a series of books on the topic the naked leader. While this idea is certainly not new, my thoughts on naked leadership are somewhat different.

Successful companies are “nice”

Successful companies are “nice” | About leadership | Scoop.it

“There’s no way to institutionalize or “corporatize” niceness…. It has to come from the top, and from there it will filter down…”

 

We live in a world where information travels quickly and powerfully. Nothing happens—good or bad—without the world knowing it. In his book Nice Companies Finish First: Why Cutthroat Management is over—and Collaboration Is In, author Peter Shankman shows how famously nice executives, entrepreneurs, and companies are setting the standard for success in this new world. He goes in-depth with nine hallmarks of effective leadership.

What Stops Leaders from Showing Compassion

What Stops Leaders from Showing Compassion | About leadership | Scoop.it

Most good people want to act compassionately at work. And recent research suggests that compassion also creates positive outcomes in organizations: People who experience compassion feel more committed to the organization and feel more positive emotions at work; when people receive bad news that is delivered with compassion, they remain more supportive of the organization; and acting with compassion can increase your own satisfaction and mitigate your own stress at work.

 

And yet even if you want to be compassionate with others at work, you may find it difficult. You may find yourself either judging others or making assumptions about what will happen if you are compassionate.

Shared Leadership: When Cups Runneth Over - Let's Grow Leaders

Shared Leadership: When Cups Runneth Over - Let's Grow Leaders | About leadership | Scoop.it

Each family arrived with their burdens and joy.  The room filled with cancer, divorce, under-employment, stagnated careers, struggling children, successes, start-ups, deepening relationships, home improvements, recovering health, big accomplishments, and new beginnings.  We spoke of none of that.

 

Technically it was a rehearsal dinner, we were eating pizza and rehearsing… although covertly, while the next day’s bride and groom were hanging elsewhere.

 

And so this Labor Day, I take a temporary diversion from our normal fare, and offer a story of successful shared leadership and joy, family style.

Peer Coaching- A truly secret tool for success

Peer Coaching- A truly secret tool for success | About leadership | Scoop.it

In a quick, non-scientific poll I conducted, a large majority of working professionals I spoke with had never heard of Peer Coaching. And if they had, they had never used it, or knew how it was implemented. Although I would like to say it’s the new, latest trend, peer coaching isn’t new at all. In fact, it was in the early 80’s that peer coaching was introduced as a tool for personal and professional development.

To Be Authentic, Look Beyond Yourself

To Be Authentic, Look Beyond Yourself | About leadership | Scoop.it

Authenticity — what is it, who has it, and how do you get it? Most people associate authenticity with being true to oneself — or "walking the talk." But there's a problem with that association; it focuses on how you feel about yourself. Authenticity is actually a relational behavior, not a self-centered one. Meaning that to be truly authentic, you must not only be comfortable with yourself, but must also comfortably connect with others.

Kneale Mann | Leadership: Awaken the Child

When you were a kid, you were probably discovering new stuff all the time. There wasn't corporate governance tied to strategic objectives to increase third quarter earnings, you just tried stuff. Some stuff went well, some not so well, some evolved into other stuff, but you probably didn't over think much because you were too busy discovering and creating. My mom still remarks about how I would get lost in my own world when I was a kid. That kid is alive and well. Is yours?

How leaders get what they want | Aspire-CS

How leaders get what they want | Aspire-CS | About leadership | Scoop.it

I often hear from leaders about things they’d like to have happen – but aren’t happening because they haven’t taken action in some way. These might be things that they want for themselves, for their employees or for their organization, but seem out of reach for them. There are all kinds of stories and excuses about why they don’t get what they want, including but not limited to:

I’m not worthy
He/she/they don’t like me
We don’t have the resources
They’ll just say “no”
Maybe next year

We may not always get what we want, but it always feels better when we take some action rather than just allowing ourselves to stew about what isn’t possible. Leaders take action, after all, and this includes moving ahead even when it might be uncomfortable.
