The Power of Meeting Your Employees' Needs

The Power of Meeting Your Employees' Needs | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

What stands in the way of our being more satisfied and productive at work? That’s the fundamental question we sought to answer in a survey we conducted with HBR last fall. More than 19,000 people, at all levels in companies, across a broad range of industries, have so far responded to the questions we posed.

 

What we discovered is that people feel better and perform better and more sustainably when four basic needs are met: renewal (physical); value (emotional), focus (mental) and purpose (spiritual).

Leaders need to consider that performance is best measured by the value they generate, not the hours they put in.

7 Indicators Your Team Is Dysfunctional | Ron Edmondson | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Chances are, if you’ve served on very many teams, you’ve served on one which is dysfunctional. It appears to me we have many to choose from in the organizational world. There are no perfect teams. We are all dysfunctional at some level and during some seasons.

In case you’re wondering- my definition of a dysfunctional team – in simple terms – is one which cannot operate at peak efficiency and performance, because it is impacted by too many negative characteristics. There’s more going wrong than right more days than not.

7 Skills Managers Will Need In 2025

7 Skills Managers Will Need In 2025 | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

We all know that the work landscape is changing. The jobs that will be in demand are shifting as more are automated by artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robots. Teams are becoming more disparate and globalization has added new collaboration challenges. At the same time, more millennials are taking on management roles, and even our work spaces will undergo changes between now and 2025.

 

“Change will be happening so quickly that 50% of the occupations that exist today will not exist 10 years from now. So we’re going to be living in an environment that is extremely adaptable and changing all the time,” says Liz Bentley, the founder of Liz Bentley Associates, a leadership development consulting firm.

Emotional Intelligence has gotten a fair amount of attention  but it will only become more important as the workplace changes over the next eight to 10 years. Effective managers will create environments that focus less on where and how people work, but which measure success based on results and output..

The reality is leadership defines culture. People look to the leadership for their role models, for guides on how to behave. This goes for everything accountability, punctuality, sexual discrimination, etc., etc., if the boss practices these then the rest of the team will feel comfortable to follow suit. The leader sets the tone for whats acceptable. This is true for both positive traits as well as the negative traits mentioned above.

Good Leaders Are Good Learners

Good Leaders Are Good Learners | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Our research on leadership development shows that leaders who are in learning mode develop stronger leadership skills than their peers.

Building on Susan Ashford and Scott DeRue’s mindful engagement experiential learning cycle, we found that leaders who exhibit a growth mindset diligently work through each of the following three phases of the experiential learning cycle.

First, leaders set challenging learning goals in the form of “I need to learn how to…” For some leaders, the goal might be to become more persuasive or to be more approachable. With a goal in mind, leaders can identify opportunities to make progress toward it. These could include a new project, an international assignment, a job rotation, or simply striving to approach routine encounters in a fundamentally different way.

Hiring Mistake #5: Would You Interview the Same as Picking a Heart Surgeon?

Hiring Mistake #5: Would You Interview the Same as Picking a Heart Surgeon? | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

A major mistake occurs in the hiring process when interviewing candidates. There is a tendency to equate, extrapolate, and extend experience to be the same as results. There is an enormous gap between experience and results. Historical experience.

Would you invest the same amount of time, due diligence, and focus as you would if you had to interview heart surgeons to work on you? Probably NOT. Most hiring executives VIOLATE the old adage to hire slowly. Usually, the decision to hire is made with minimal data and information. This error/mistake helps lead to the statistic of 50/50 probability in hiring. When will you no longer accept random results from the hiring and interviewing process?

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Getting smart people into your company is hard enough. Turning them all into great collaborators and risk-takers is even harder. Even on the most high-performing teams, coworkers don’t just openly share feedback and challenge each others’ ideas all on their own–managers need to create a culture that encourages this. And that usually requires building your team’s collective emotional intelligence. Here are a few straightforward (and entirely low-tech ways) to get started.

It’s not your manager’s fault if you have nothing to talk about in your 1 on 1 meeting. In fact, every time you come to your meeting with nothing to discuss, it makes them dread their 1 on 1 meeting with you a little more. It also gives them another reason to want to cancel, or fill the time with status updates. No one likes pulling teeth, and it can be excruciating to try to draw everything out of you. This is why it’s important for you to think about what you want to talk about. Don’t make your answer to, “what do you want to talk about?” a blank stare.

Why You Need This One Trait to Build a Successful Company Culture

Why You Need This One Trait to Build a Successful Company Culture | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

How would you describe a superpower in the workplace? Words such as “inspirational,” “influential” and “powerful” would come to mind, but you would rarely think of “empathetic.”

 

Empathy is a skill which is often overlooked in the workplace. Determined by Frans de Waal as the “social glue that holds human society together,” empathy refers to the awareness of one’s own and other people’s feelings, needs and concerns. Having the ability to be empathetic has been proven to prevent poor morale, misunderstandings and conflicts, consequently enabling a person to build significant and long-lasting relationships with others. Empathy therefore is the underrated key ingredient for both personal and professional success.

Empathy is perhaps the single most important trait that goes into a successful company! The expression of empathy, eagerness to know more about how your employees feel, the ability to find time for employees are all things that make your company a great place to work in. Unfortunately, the culture of empathy is the most overlooked one because of the need to compete and produce results. We have become mechanical in our dealings with subordinates and even colleagues!

What Makes Teams Resilient

What Makes Teams Resilient | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
In our conversations about work topics like productivity, effectiveness, role or technology, and innovation are top of mind. We are much less comfortable drilling down deep into the most difficult and uncomfortable moments in our careers, getting honest, and holding ourselves accountable to moving forward after a setback. If we were to ask—what makes a good life? We would likely not talk about the usual suspects. It is not about fame, wealth, or popularity. Even as a culture of personality and the siren call of social widgets and apps beckon us daily into showmanship, the recipe for a good life comes down to simple things like social connections in real life, the having close relationships, and their quality. When we are in relationships where we feel part of things, have a good dialogue with each other, and we feel we can count on others we thrive. As Antoine d

This is the No. 1 trait of great leaders, says Wharton's top professor | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
The less you care about your own success, the more successful you will be.

That's according to Adam Grant, organizational psychologist, top-rated professor at Wharton business school and author of The New York Times best-selling books "Give and Take," "Originals" and "Option B."

"One of the things that stands out for me when I think about what distinguishes the greatest leaders of our time, is that success is very rarely a goal for them, it's a byproduct of other goals that they have," Grant, who has studied thousands of leaders in his career, tells CNBC Make It.

"They say, 'Look, the most meaningful way to succeed is to help other people succeed, to advance a vision or an idea or a project that is bigger than me, that's going to affect a lot of people,'" explains Grant.

"And then the bigger you aim there, the more you focus on doing something that's going to benefit others, the more likely you are to produce something that's also going to achieve success for you."
