5 Leadership Lessons: Listen, Learn, Lead | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

For a leader – or anyone else who wants to succeed at hiring and retaining the very best talent – listening is a crucial skill. Because when you tune the wrong people and information out, you’re depriving yourself of priceless tools that will enable you to take your career, and life, to new levels of workplace fulfillment, reward and fun.

What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management?

What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management? | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Management and leadership practises were once just a subject for TV sitcoms – the Office's David Brent, a master of 'management speak', was celebrated as an example of all that is bad about bosses.


But recent scandals, such as those concerning the BBC, NHS and the banking sector, have forced the debate about management and leadership up the agenda. Employers and politicians alike are now asking how our public and private bodies should be organised – and how we can prepare the next generation of leaders.


Key to the problem is understanding the difference between management and leadership, says John Kotter, Konosuke Matsushita professor of leadership at Harvard University. He fears that too often, employers use the terms synonymously.

The turth is, we need both leaders and managers. One cannot exist without the other. Too often wwe look for ways to segregate ourselves along artificial lines. The key is to build bridges that unite and define, not barriers that divide and deminish.

For anyone who wants to get beyond adversity or start over rather than give up, America is the Land of Second Chances. According to Jon Huntsman, former US Ambassador to China, getting back on our feet is an American strength widely admired in China. And everywhere, rapid recovery from natural disasters is increasingly a key to a robust economy. Entrepreneurs and innovators must be willing to fail and try again. The point isn't to learn to fail, it is to learn to bounce back.

John Michel's curator insight, July 9, 2013 6:08 AM

Creating a sense of belonging for people requires that leaders be engaged. It means investing time and energy to understand what’s going on with their people, their hopes and dreams, their fears and insecurities. Fostering belonging is about humanizing the workplace and creating a safe space where people can be vulnerable, real and authentic.

Russ Bergeman's curator insight, July 9, 2013 11:07 AM

This is a great piece that describes the challenge that many organizations deal with on a daily basis – the difference between employees fitting in and truly belonging. The most productive employees, those who are engaged, feel a sense of belonging, not just fitting in.

 

Although leaders can play a role in developing a culture of engagement, it really starts with the hiring process. I am a major proponent of implementing a scientifically and validated assessment tool (e.g., ProfileXT) to help on-board the “right” people who will have a more natural fit within the organization.

 

It may seem relatively easy for people to “adapt” in order to execute in a job or career. But, eventually, this will catch up with employees and show up in their overall work performance. When an organization hires people who will culturally belong leaders have more time to concentrate on other high payoff activities.

 

To learn more about the ProfileXT and it use for on-boarding, promoting, team-building, etc., visit - http://theemployersedge.com/assessment or contact me – russ@theemployersedge.com.

Engagement Encouraged at All Levels Ensures a Thriving Company

Engagement Encouraged at All Levels Ensures a Thriving Company | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

No matter how flat your organization is there will always be a vertical component. Front-line employees don’t have the same functional responsibilities as managers, who in turn don’t have the same functional responsibilities as executives. This is true in every organization, and it gives healthy boundaries as well as manages expectations.

These three groups – Executives, Managers, Individuals – have very different functional responsibilities and engagement fits very nicely into them. Just like you wouldn’t expect an individual to develop a 5-year strategy plan for the organization instead of an executive, there are aspects to engagement that should be assigned to the proper functional group.

If each of these groups assumes 3 areas of responsibility each to facilitate engagement, an organization will thrive.

Tread carefully when choosing an adviser

SELECTING the right financial planner is similar to choosing any other professional, but there is one critical difference.

We typically only need professionals to solve one-off or intermittent problems. For example, the only contact you might have with a solicitor is when you review your will every few years.

But in the vast majority of cases most people want an ongoing relationship with their financial adviser with regular contact throughout the year.
