(From the article): How many times have you seen someone go to a leadership training, come back all fired up, and then go right back to their old habits a few days later? Pick one or two leadership behaviors you want to improve, and practice them consistently every day. This could be something as simple as “I’m going to ask more strategic questions to get my team thinking.” Or, “I’m going to wait until others have had a chance to speak in meetings until I chime in.”

Identify your context and build everything around it

Identify your context and build everything around it | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

According to Lynda Gratton, work is no longer being defined by HR, but rather by ‘context’, which is created by the emergence of megatrends and their impact on society: “Work is being shaped by technology, globalisation, democracy and the ageing workforce, and the opportunity you have to make work as you want it,”

What should HR leaders do if they don’t have a seat at the table? “Leave. It’s not a place you want to be in. I think HR has to be courageous about that,” ~ Lynda Gratton

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, June 19, 10:29 AM

Absolutely true. HR should be the heart of a company, not the stepchild but it has been commandeered over the last 2 decades. They need to become proactive advocates for change.

Ian Berry's curator insight, June 19, 6:17 PM

Like this from the article 

"For Gratton, ‘context’ is made up of three layers: your corporation, your supply chain, and those who support your organisation in the outer world. Successful leadership in this new era of work is about engaging with those three levels.

 “As we enter this new era of work, where change is the norm and employees and customers are seeking greater transparency, organisations must endeavour to help every employee be as good as they can be,” she says."

Gust MEES's curator insight, June 19, 9:41 AM
According to a study by Harvard Business Review, young high achievers value mentoring and coaching and often leave their current gigs in a quest to have those needs met. Companies like Microsoft and KPMG have caught on by giving employees exposure to peers in different divisions to provide fresh ideas and new ways of thinking.

In addition to more formalized training and education programs, many companies also try to foster mentorship within their organizations, often with mixed results. Like matchmaking, mentorship can seem shrouded in mystique and luck. HR departments eagerly set up colleagues for lunches or other work “dates” and cross their fingers that the chemistry will spark. A seasoned pro will take an eager novice under his or her wing and the next generation of great leaders will be born.
