4 Signs You're a Weak Leader | Professional development and management skills | Scoop.it
Outwardly, you appear effective, dependable, on top of things. But look closer. Are you in danger of destructive behaviors?

(From the article): When was the last time you sat in on an operations or planning meeting, simply as a resource, and not as the boss? How did your team react? Were they comfortable and relaxed with you around, or did it all seem forced, a little like playacting?

 

In reviewing the four behaviors above, did you experience a sinking feeling of recognition in more than one? If so, it might be time to reverse course.

David Hain's curator insight, January 29, 2013 6:21 AM

Learning with 'e's: The sharp end -The Pencil Metaphor Steve Wheeler

Learning with 'e's: The sharp end -The Pencil Metaphor Steve Wheeler | Professional development and management skills | Scoop.it

"Progress does not respect barriers. It bulldozes its way through them, drives roughshod over all objections and ultimately achieves its goal." Steve Wheeler From the blog post: I stumbled upon this graphic earlier in the week. It comes courtesy of the Positive DV8R blog, and I wanted to share it with you. It's another simple and humorous, and yet all too painfully true pencil metaphor. Our old friend the pencil points us to definitions of six types of people you can find in any given organisation, and their various responses to innovation. The graphic is adapted from a short piece by Lindy McKeown who elaborates better than I could and is certainly worth a quick read. I wonder if you are able to identify the different responses with people you work with?

Work is learning and learning is the work

Work is learning and learning is the work | Professional development and management skills | Scoop.it

"Our workplaces are shifting from hierarchies to networks. Hyperlinks have subverted hierarchy. Everyone is connected. In many hierarchical organizations, workers are more connected when they go home than when they’re at work. This is a sure sign of the obsolescence of our older management control systems and why becoming a social business is so important today."

Jenni Nevasalo: Suomi tarvitsee 5 000 000 johtajaa | Tekes | Professional development and management skills | Scoop.it

"Tarvitsemme Suomeen lisää kasvuhalukkaita ja kansainvälistyviä yrityksiä luomaan työpaikkoja, tuomaan veroeuroja ja houkuttelemaan lisää ulkomaisia investointeja. Suomalaiset suhtautuvat positiivisesti muutoksiin ja ovat tutkimuksen mukaan kehittäneet omaa työtään. Myös työntekijöiden osaaminen on korkealla tasolla. European Company Surveyn mukaan Suomi on organisaatiomuutosten määrässä Euroopan huippua, tuotteiden ja palveluiden uudistamisessa jäämme sen sijaan kauas eurooppalaisesta tasosta. Keskitymmekö vanhan viilaamiseen sen sijaan, että lähtisimme rohkeasti kokeilemaan jotain aivan uutta? Vai emmekö osaa hyödyntää kaikkea sitä osaamista ja kehittämisen halua, jota työyhteisöistämme löytyy?"

How The Knowledge Economy Is Redefining Work

How The Knowledge Economy Is Redefining Work | Professional development and management skills | Scoop.it

Our conceptions of work have shifted, and work is more about finding meaning and independence. Companies that refuse to offer flexible, autonomous, and creative work environments, won't be able to attract the best people.

Anu Ojaranta's insight:

“We’ve got to the stage where people you don’t know endorse you for skills you don’t have (on LinkedIn).” McMurray cofounded Somewhere in 2012 to “put people back at the heart of and in control of telling the stories of their work,” as he told me. He believes that “work should not deny our humanity, it should welcome it. Work, more than ever before, is personal.”

5 Ways Leaders Enable Innovation In Their Teams

5 Ways Leaders Enable Innovation In Their Teams | Professional development and management skills | Scoop.it
Leaders are accountable to assemble teams and lead them to optimal performance outcomes. An effective leader recognizes the importance of embracing differences in people and knows how to connect the dots amongst those differences to get the best outcomes from the team. This is what cultivates a workplace environment of continuous improvements, innovation and initiative. Leaders must foster a commitment from the team to embrace an innovation mindset where each employee learns to apply the differences that exist in one another for their own success and that of the organization. Here are 5 immediate things leaders can do with their teams to foster an environment of innovation and initiative. They apply whether you are forming a new team or revamping an existing one.

(From the article): Happiness is a loaded word in our culture, and in our workplace cultures. It’s important to keep in mind that we all have our own personal definition of happiness. But I firmly believe that a fulfilling career is a direct result of doing work that matters – that engages us mind, heart, and soul. Leaders can’t force employees into the zone, but they can certainly facilitate and nurture the process and make this more of a reality by making decisions that keep this in mind. And for employees – it’s a satisfying challenge if you decide to make it matter.
