Collaboration: It’s about people and processes

Collaboration: It’s about people and processes | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

We shouldn’t make the mistake of believing that collaboration is about information. Better access to more information doesn’t improve productivity unless it enables business activities that weren’t possible before (e.g., analytics) or accelerates existing activities.

 

Real collaboration is about improving the processes that people use to get their jobs done.

Leadership Series: Vulnerability and Inspired Leadership

Leadership Series: Vulnerability and Inspired Leadership | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Contrary to how we traditionally think about organizations, leaders are developing strategies and shaping culture across all levels. And, contrary to the myth of the “all-knowing-all-powerful” leader, inspired leadership requires vulnerability: Do we have the courage to show up, be seen, take risks, ask for help, own our mistakes, learn from failure, lean into joy, and can we support the people around us in doing the same?

You Really Need to Fire Yourself: 8 Steps to Kick the Directive Habit

You Really Need to Fire Yourself: 8 Steps to Kick the Directive Habit | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Telling people what to do -- being “directive” -- is ineffective and unsustainable over the long haul. A more empowering approach, like giving your team the latitude to do things their own way and the authority to make decisions for themselves, is more effective. It’s good for you too, as it frees you up to make a more significant contribution, feel more fulfilled, and ensure your organization is firing on all cylinders.

5 Tips to Avoid a Critical Leadership Mistake

5 Tips to Avoid a Critical Leadership Mistake | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

I knew Gary wasn’t happy.

Early in my career, when I first began leading team-leaders, one of them was clearly struggling – he looked frustrated, sounded frustrated, and it didn’t take a genius to know something was bothering Gary.

So I asked if I could buy him lunch and hear what was on his mind.

As we ate, he began sharing complaint after complaint…he’d been disrespected and abused by a senior manager, his team wasn’t doing as well as he hoped, he wasn’t sure the company’s vision matched his own…and so on.

Gary had appreciated my invitation to lunch and the opportunity to be heard.

But as he started sharing his concerns, I couldn’t stand it…

How Do You Change An Organizational Culture? - Forbes

How Do You Change An Organizational Culture? - Forbes | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Changing an organization’s culture is one of the most difficult leadership challenges. That’s because an organization’s culture comprises an interlocking set of goals, roles, processes, values, communications practices, attitudes and assumptions.

 

The elements fit together as an mutually reinforcing system and combine to prevent any attempt to change it. That’s why single-fix changes, such as the introduction of teams, or Lean, or Agile, or Scrum, or knowledge management, or some new process, may appear to make progress for a while, but eventually the interlocking elements of the organizational culture take over and the change is inexorably drawn back into the existing organizational culture.

How to communicate like a world-class leader - Leadership blog by Mark Wager | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Whether it is for business or for relationships, we communicate with people every day. It is such a natural occurrence that we don’t think twice about it. Do people misunderstand you? Of course they do. Well these things happen. We rarely if ever think of analysing just how effective our communication actually is and if we could improve how we convey our messages. Yet top business and political leaders do just that.

Happiness Is The Ultimate Economic Indicator

Happiness Is The Ultimate Economic Indicator | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
One factor that is increasingly being cited as an important economic indicator is happiness. After all, what good is increased production and consumption if the result isn’t increased human satisfaction? Until fairly recently, the subject of happiness was mostly avoided by economists for lack of good ways to measure it; however, in recent years, “happiness economists” have found ways to combine subjective surveys with objective data (on lifespan, income, and education) to yield data with consistent patterns, making a national happiness index a practical reality.
