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'.

David Hain's curator insight, October 21, 2013 12:17 PM

"At P&G, Lafley opened up everything. He wanted his leaders to be more collaborative, and just as importantly, he wanted his employees to be open. As a results, magic happened. He branded this open architecture “Connect and Develop” or “C&D.” The framework reached across all employees, regardless of title, and it drove not only revenue and profitability, but also employee engagement."


Given that the published engagement figures have rarely moved over the last 10 years, we need more people to investigate how to be flat army commanders!

Richard Dillard, PMP, SSBB, ABD 7.1's curator insight, June 22, 2013 1:42 PM

"Never let yourself be pursuaded that any one Great Man, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of America. When America consists of one leader and 158 million followers, it will no longer be America."  Credited to Dwight D. Eisenhower in a September 3, 1976 edition of the National Courier, we could well adjust the quote to the context of this article thus:

 

Never let yourself be pursuaded that any one Great Man or Woman, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of business in America. When Corporations consist of one leader and the rest followers, they will no longer be effective.

 

Borrowing from Marshall and Manuel in "The Light and the Glory", it is the most dangerous kind of corporate self-delusion to think that a CEO, regardless of how capable he or she is, can single-handedly reverse the bent of the organization's defensive culture and increase effectiveness. And when it becomes apparent that the CEO cannot, he or she will become the next in a long line of scapegoats. 

 

In stark contrast to this "one great leader" concept stands the Leadership-Culture-Performance connection.  REAL LEADERS understand and exploit this connection through the impact they have on those who choose to follow their lead.  By modeling visionary behaviors that are congruent with visionary messages and employing prescriptive rather than restrictive leadership strategies, their impact is one that produces greatness in, with and through others.  The result is an entire corporation of leaders who, through constructive relationships, exchange information vital to their individual and collective success.  Only then can their approach to one another in the process of working together create the culture whereby their vision can emerge, their effectiveness can increase and their performance improve.  

 

Indeed!  Companies intent on surviving and thriving will need to move into the Post-CEO World.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 22, 2013 8:02 PM

Las opiniones, las ideas ingeniosas, y la experiencia de un simple líder no son suficientes para conducir exitosamente una organización en los tiempos actuales.   Una encuesta realizada por IBM el 2011 a 3,000 CIOs concluyó que tanto CEOs como CIOs están hoy más alineados que nunca a la estrategia de la organización. El paradigma del CEO exitoso, capaz de transformar la organización y cambiar el mundo, al estilo de Steve Jobs, está dejando paso a un paradigma de liderazgo en equipo. 

Tom Hood's curator insight, June 24, 2013 7:25 AM

I think the CEO is moving from Chief Executive Officer to Chief Engagement Officer and will act more like CEOs of non-profits who are leading networks rather than managing organizations. I like the metaphor of "gardeners" and the idea of "network Leadership" which we are bringing to the CPA profession in our learning and development programs.

Seven Disciplines that Make Leadership Development Stick | About leadership | Scoop.it

Leaders don't always finish well or finish what they start. Leadership sustainability isn't easy. Given the fact that we all know leaders that haven't finished well, it's surprising how many of us have no plan in place to consciously and specifically improve our leadership abilities. Most of the time we wing it.

Can Anyone Be A Leader? | About leadership | Scoop.it

I talk to people about leadership and becoming a leader. Some of them wish they were more effective at being a leader, some wish other people were more comfortable with their leadership, and some are not certain that they even want to be a leader. All of them have questions, and many of their questions grow out of a common concern.

Each of them, in one way or another, doubt that they can be a leader. They often ask me whether I believe that anyone, and everyone, can be a leader.
