3 Business Elements Needed for Excellent Results

3 Business Elements Needed for Excellent Results | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
In the 1980s we were told that profit was king. The whole economy was restructured to put this focus before all else, on the basis that if we did that right then everything else would follow. But the reality is very different. Profit itself follows from putting a sense of wider purpose first, and from looking after people in the way that such a purpose ensures.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 18, 4:50 PM

Our emotions not only influence what our brain focuses on, but it can also completely change how we remember details. This is an important key for all leaders to be mindful in their roles.

 

(From the article): Ultimately, what this comes down to and what the various studies from the neuroscience field help us to better appreciate is that our leadership is not defined by us, but through the memories and experiences of those we lead.

And this brings us back to the fundamental truth of succeeding at leadership today – that it’s not about serving our own wants and needs, but about how we can help those under our care to attain that level of success and fulfillment that fuels their drive to do better and to be better going forward.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, February 19, 12:28 AM

From the article:

These findings also cement the truth of why the command-and-control style of leadership is no longer effective given how we can’t lean on our positional authority to assume our perspective and memories are correct [Share on Twitter].

Wow, here is a provocative statement. 

 

Our mercantile minds have become so optimized to derive maximum margins that we tend to forget that it all starts with us, ahem, humans.

But why trust me on this. Just google Steve Jobs and/ or Richard Branson, or a myriad of other thinkers about what they have to say.

 

In the beginning there are neurons firing in each or our brains deriving a new idea or insight. Everything else comes later. So, value your humans. And, btw, they are not "resources" they are creative agents of change - if allowed to be.

Chris Brown's curator insight, February 11, 1:54 PM

Interacting with remote employees is not as comfortable for leaders as working with people face to face.  Increasingly we find the workforce to be more dispersed and leaders that tend to overcompensate by more frequent visits, calls, reporting, etc.


This article points out that the expectations of all employees, remote or not, should be the same.  


Have a read and then consider how this might change how you interact with remote employees.

I am a small business owner and just like many other people in my situation I struggle with the same everyday problems. One of the worst problems I had to deal with were the business meetings me and my team used to have. I thought that these meetings are essential to an organization so we used to hold them regularly, often without good reason. I’m saying this is one of the worst problems I had to deal with because I didn’t know it was a problem until it was almost too late. Here’s what I did to solve it:

How do leaders go through the learning process? What are the formative and informative experiences that influence leaders?
