The Troubling Flaws In How We Select Experts

The Troubling Flaws In How We Select Experts | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Organizations are constantly scouring the earth for the talent or perfect expert that will provide the fresh edge and perspective needed to overcome the challenging obstacles that stand in their way to the top. In their pursuit of excellence however, you may be shocked to learn the criteria they use to define credibility and expertise may be severely flawed.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, Today, 7:35 AM

Sadly, it's human nature to overlook the talent nearest you and think an outsider can save the day.  


Why are recommendations perceived as bad ideas when suggested by employees, but suddenly brilliant when a lesser known individual suggests the same thing?


Why are these outsiders perceived to be more credible?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 4:04 PM

I always wondered how it was done. It certainly does not make much sense in School who is promoted and privileged.

Many feel that leadership is power. However, it is important to remember that leaders derive their power from the people around them.

 

This is epitomised by Jack Welch's famous quote: "When you become a leader, success is all about growing others".

4 Steps That Will Change The Way You Think About Leadership | Financenk | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

As youngsters we became accustomed to hearing, You can’t do this or you can’t do that. This routine carried on into high school with our teachers telling us what we should do and what we shouldn’t do and what they considered achievable. Then a lot of us went on to college where they taught us skills that gave us the ability to take orders instead of developing the leader inside each of us.They needed us to obey to keep the machine known as corporate running smoothly.They created sheep instead of lions. They wouldn’t teach us how to be independent, creative and self-reliant.

Rebuilding those leadership qualities demands that you retrain yourself.

Three Ways to Actually Engage Employees

Start by talking about impact, not financial performance.

 

Nobody washes a rental car.

People will go the extra mile only if they feel they have ownership. It’s much the same in the workplace. Employees who take ownership of their work — and who feel that what they are doing matters — are far more likely than others to feel engaged on the job.

Influential Leadership Coaching: Four Core Qualities of Duplication | Financenk | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

The role of conventional leadership is frequently depicted as one who takes charge, makes decisions, delegates tasks, and is otherwise disconnected from those in less authoritative positions. In a professional environment, this person might be known as the Big Boss that is somehow set apart from his or her subordinates. They’re “up there” and we’re “down here” type of thing.

Breaks Are Good For Business

Breaks Are Good For Business | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Leadership- you must talk the walk. There are big benefits to structured breaks. Employees refresh and recharge, they're more creative, focussed & engaged.

Via Susan Taylor

Susan Taylor's curator insight, July 8, 6:07 PM

As a leader, what do you do to balance work and rest breaks, and how do you support your employees to do the same?


With all of the documentation out there about the benefits of downtime, many senior leaders don't change any of their practices.  We know that taking breaks is good for business; yet we still resist.  Why?


Peter McKelvie offers us this challenge:  "Take a risk and encourage some down time. See what happens. Take a bit for yourself while you’re at it".  Model to your team that taking breaks are not only acceptable; but desirable.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 11, 9:29 AM

Breaks are healthy. It is actually on breaks from "real work" that many breakthroughs happen. Students benefit from these when done well.
