6 Strategies to Reinvent the Way We Lead   | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

To disrupt the status quo, leaders must get beyond diversity, and create inclusive environments to increase performance predictability with employees, clients, products and services.

In a time of great uncertainty, inclusive leadership through these six strategies for the innovation mentality are about seeing differences as growth opportunities, rather than negative disruption that slows progress down. These strategies use the power of what makes us different to create something new that impacts the business rather than minimizing or trying to assimilate those differences. Thus, they allow us to create high-performance leaders and teams focused on inclusion and the power of individuality to consciously cultivate innovation and initiative by choice, not by accident.

Lisa Gorman's curator insight, April 25, 12:23 AM

www.inc.com provide us with some useful ideas here about what 'really good' leaders to at work.  I've been thinking about the strategies offered; 1. giving feedback 2. regular team planning sessions 3. conducting stay interviews 4. recognition & appreciation 5. freedom to make decisions 6. allowing people to take on new responsibilities 7. open-door policy.  All of these rely on the fundamentally critical technical skill of being able to give and receive feedback and the heart-connected qualities that allow people to thrive because you want them to do their best.  For me, really good leaders empower people to succeed.  Allowing freedom is great, but to do this without building trust and sound relationships first, could be an action taken too soon. Interesting topic!

What makes a great leader? 

 “It’s true that imitation is one of the greatest forms of flattery, but not when it comes to leadership—and every great leader in my life, from Mike Tomlin to Olympic ski coach Scott Rawles, led from a place of authenticity. Learn from others, read autobiographies of your favorite leaders, pick up skills along the way... but never lose your authentic voice, opinions and, ultimately, how you make decisions.” —Jeremy Bloom

The Three Measures of Your Leadership Success

The Three Measures of Your Leadership Success | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Are you a successful leader? This is a difficult question to answer: No matter how good you think you are, the only evidence of leadership is whether people follow you. Self-serving bias distorts your perception of your own successes and failures. Even if you’re incredibly self-aware, you may have trouble with an objective assessment because your direct reports may only appear to be following — they don’t get an option to be physically present — and not every company conducts rigorous engagement surveys or 360-degree reviews.

So how can you gain a reasonably accurate understanding of your success as a leader? Try integrating three distinctive views.

Assessing your effectiveness requires looking simultaneously at the past, the present, and the future.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 12, 2016 11:16 PM

A very powerful insight into three principal areas for leaders to work on, the now, the tomorrow and then the past in exactly that order! Performing well in the present times, meeting targets should have an impact on what you plan for the future, five years, ten years or so. Similarly, according to the writer, it is also important to look back at your past. Take stock of what went well, what went wrong, and what could have been done differently. It is also about connecting to past co workers and staying in touch with previous organisations.

Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, January 13, 2016 2:10 PM

Are you a successful leader?

 

According to Business Strategy:

“This is a difficult question to answer: No matter how good you think you are, the only evidence of leadership is whether people follow you”.

 

I agree.

As heads many of us complain that our employees do not have the performance needed by the company and we expect. Although often we spend a lot of time in training them to develop their competencies (knowledge, skills, attitudes and values). If the results (performance of your employees) are not satisfactory, I think that there are at least two reasons that have to do with bosses or owners of the company:

He could not make a good selection and is now trying a person who does not have the profile nor the desire to be, to become a model employee.Not a genuine leader, not leading by example and values, it is not prepared permanently, you want results (transformation of its employees) in the very short term, although many people do not believe me some owners "enjoy" chaos and / or are afraid of success.

Of course there are other reasons (poor performance of employees) originated in the culture of the country, poor training in universities, inept governments and / or corrupt, but this does not absolve the responsibility of the OWNER-LEADER OR HEAD -LEADER.

Ready, aim, fire is about beginnings, not about successful completion.  Progress is not completing. With creativity, the author laments, you're never really done.

The unfortunate truth is that we’re living in an increasingly divisive world – whether it’s because of our political viewpoints, because of our religious beliefs, or even because of where we or our parents came from. And yet, the undeniable truth is that the longevity of today’s organizations is no longer dependent on what technologies you use, where you operate, or even what you create. Rather, your organization’s ability to adapt, evolve, and grow in today’s interconnected, global environment is dependent on the people who show up every day to help your organization move one step closer to achieving your shared purpose.
