Keeping it real

Keeping it real | Self Leadership for Women | Scoop.it
“Keeping it real” - How authentic is your corporate purpose? identifies 12 drivers of authenticity, divided into those that relate to identity and those that relate to image. Drivers range from how transparent and open to self-regulation a company is, to its long-term orientation and consistency. It also takes into consideration differentiating factors such as passion and originality. And as Aileen Ionescu-Somers, Director of IMD’s CSL Learning Platform points out “What we have now - as a result of this research - is a veritable diagnostic toolset that can be used by companies to drive authenticity throughout their organizations.”

“Together with strong leadership, our research shows that awareness is the top dimension that drives authenticity – meaning that a company has an understanding of its own strengths and weaknesses, what drives or motivates its actions and how this affects key stakeholders and the environment. But all drivers are critical to overcoming the skepticism of internal and external audiences and must be managed in a comprehensive way,” said Daina Mazutis, Professor of Strategy and Ethics at IMD.

What Kind Of Leadership Is Needed In Flat Hierarchies?

What Kind Of Leadership Is Needed In Flat Hierarchies? | Self Leadership for Women | Scoop.it

Our shift from bureaucratic to distributed leadership took nearly a century. According to Deborah Ancona, a professor of management and organizational studies at MIT, companies in America circa 1920s were "super bureaucracies." Then, in the 1960s, people focused on interpersonal relationships and lots of discussions centered around trust and empathy. In the 1990s, it was all about organizations needing to undergo large-scale changes and vision. Finally, today’s workplace centers on what’s called variously eco-leadership, collaborative leadership, or distributed leadership.

"It’s all about your network," says Ancona, author of X-Teams: How to Build Teams That Lead, Innovate, and Succeed, as in who do you know outside and inside of your team. "If you understand the internal network in your company, you have a higher chance of moving ahead

The fast growing movement in flat structures is probably http://www.holacracy.org/ The key is not the system though it's a change in ways of being by leaders. Being comes before doing.

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, May 28, 2015 10:41 AM

Great article by Fast Company on leadership in so-called 'flat organisations'. What is necessary to make the real shift from top-down and bureaucratic to more distributed leadership? MIT professor Deborah Ancona discusses the answers.

 

Her keywords are: transparency, strategic mindset for everyone, connectivity and (innovative) collision.

How can women climb the leadership ladder?

How can women climb the leadership ladder? | Self Leadership for Women | Scoop.it
Collaboration, empathy and flexibility – all crucial for effective leadership – are traditionally perceived as female traits. Yet a new cross-sector study by Caliper finds that female leaders also display the traditional male characteristics of persuasiveness, assertiveness and willingness to take risks.

My own view is that leadership is a fluid, nuanced process; you need to be adept at switching your style and be culturally adaptive as needed. Perhaps because women need to fight harder against ingrained bias and the status quo, we need to be more tenacious and determined to work our way up the leadership pipeline. Yet we are inclusive by nature; we try to bring people along with us. As such, women are setting a new standard of modern leadership.

Since I was appointed to a global CEO role at Maxus, I have been asked more and more about leadership in a gender context. It’s an often-quoted stat, but at Davos this year only 17% of the participants were women. The gender question just keeps coming up – and so it remains relevant.

Planning Your Future Is Pointless. The How And Why Of Embracing Uncertainty

Planning Your Future Is Pointless. The How And Why Of Embracing Uncertainty | Self Leadership for Women | Scoop.it

You can’t figure out the future.

Even young people who have a plan (be a doctor, lawyer, research scientist, singer) don’t really know what will happen. If they have any certainty at all, they’re a bit deluded. Life doesn’t go according to plan, and while a few people might do exactly what they set out to do, you never know if you’re one of those. Other things come along to change you, to change your opportunities, to change the world. The jobs of working at Google, Amazon or Twitter, for example, didn’t exist when I was a teenager. Neither did this job.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, May 23, 2014 10:20 PM

I guess it makes sense to plan for the unexpected, an oxymoron, I guess, but then this is the fact. In many cases, our planning caters to only five to ten percent of what will really take place. This however doesn't that you don't plan! Having a lesson plan ensures that there will be standardized teaching taking place in the class. A Lesson plan is like a road map that a substitute teacher can take up in your place, and he or she can pick up from where you left. But then coming back to planning, I remember how even the elaborate five year plans made by the government under the Socialist Regime in Ethiopia couldn't account for the lack of rains leading to a drought and famine!

(2) What makes you happy?  Your passion is connected to your purpose. If you practice your purpose,you will kindle the fire of your passion and it will increase and help propel forward in life. It is important to work on your list everyday. Our career work should be something that we really love to do.To find our passion we must look inside ourselves. It can only be found there. Sometimes we can connect to it by remembering what we loved
