Some excellent points in this article.  One I especially like is that employees are now more like customers. Power is shifting to employees but not equally, however the ones who recognize it will be rewarded.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 4, 11:50 AM

(From the article): When leaders empower people through a higher purpose, they don’t have to “create buy-in” or use other marketing tactics to win over their followers. Leaders who do find themselves acting something like a pusher — resorting to perks, tit-for-tats, and bonuses — might want to ask themselves if they’re missing some larger point. A leader isn’t a salesman. When Steve Jobs asked John Sculley his famous question, “Do you really want to spend your life selling sugared water, or do you want a chance to change the world?” he was making just such a distinction. Selling sugared water might make you a few bucks — but only at the cost of doing something that matters. The purpose of a leader is to create a purpose.


And yet although that sounds very inspiring, a leader’s job still is not to give inspiring speeches. A leader isn’t an orator who claps everyone on the back once in a while when they’ve sunk into a torpor. The job of a leader is indeed to inspire people — but in the truer sense of the word: from the Latin inspirare, inspire, to breathe or blow into. Leaders breathe life into the organizations they lead, into the people they’re responsible for. They breathe life into possibilities. They make it more possible for the rest of us to dare, imagine, create, and build. They do not merely encourage us to do so; theirs is the hard work of crafting all the incentives, processes, systems, and roles that actually empower us to do so.

 

Leadership is in an uncertain place. We long desperately for better leaders. But perhaps it is precisely our longing that’s the problem. We’re waiting for a rescue at the cost of our own redemption.

Because it’s easier to complain about the leaders we have than to try to do better. After all, it’s a pretty hard job.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 4, 12:22 PM

Leadership and management, although both vital, are not the same, but are often conflated. A person who can micro-manage and check off lists like many educational managers can think they are leading. They are managing and not doing that well. Living does not involve a fixed script and leading in the midst of complexity requires qualities many do not have or are not allowed to use.

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, February 5, 12:59 PM

A very good question for all leaders today.
