Unfortunately, our business and political leaders have been slow to recognise the need for change, the frequent appearance of buzzwords such as “CSR” and “sustainability” in management literature notwithstanding. As a result, public trust in business and government hit historic lows in the years following the Great Recession.

Inspired ordinary: The real cost of poor leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Read any research on employee engagement and you are likely to find a similar story. Global statistics show only 30% of people are actively engaged at work. Active engagement means that people feel a sense of emotional ownership and are committed to achieving the objectives of their role. The remaining 70% fit somewhere between somewhat engaged and actively disengaged. The actively disengaged are those deliberately looking for ways to minimize their contribution and even sabotage success.

David Foster Wallace on Leadership

David Foster Wallace on Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

“A leader’s real ‘authority’ is a power you voluntarily give him, and you grant him this authority not with resentment or resignation but happily.”

 

In a culture that calls pop culture celebrities “thought-leaders” and looks for “leadership ability” in kindergartners, we’re left wondering what leadership actually means and questioning what makes a great leader.

 

The best definition of the essence beneath the leadership buzzword comes from David Foster Wallace.

The Most Underutilized Tool in Making People Happier at Work

The Most Underutilized Tool in Making People Happier at Work | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
By now there’s enough statistical evidence that recognition done right plays a critical role in engaging employees and creating high-performance cultures. Our research shows it also creates enhanced feelings of trust and communication in employees. But it’s hard to benefit from the impact of gratitude if you don’t do it.

No one knows this better than Kirt Walker, president and chief operating officer of Nationwide Financial in Columbus, Ohio. I was working with Kirt and his amazing leadership team at a meeting last week when he issued this challenge: “It's Thanksgiving. Lets make sure we thank our people.”

He then gave them a great way to accomplish the task: He asked them to consider writing a handwritten note to every direct report, expressing specifically what that employee has done to help the organization thrive. And he said it would be great to do it before Thanksgiving Day.

An Executive Coach Explains How To Master Office Politics To Rise Through The Ranks | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

For many people, the idea of using office politics to your advantage sounds Machiavellian, as if you need to manipulate, deceive, and destroy on your way to the top.

But you’d be naive to think politics don’t influence your success, and the first step to leveraging them may be to change your definition of politicking.
