What Do We Mean By New Leadership?

What Do We Mean By New Leadership? | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

I am a great fan of curation and use Scoop-it on a regular basis to bring together and publish articles and blogs on key areas of interest. One of my curates is called “New Leadership” and a couple of weeks ago one of my Twitter followers asked me what I meant by that. It was a fair question and following the death last year of Margaret Thatcher, it was one which got me thinking about the way that our concept of leadership has changed over the last couple of decades.

A great article from Roger Francis. 

 

(From the article): Finally, I think that people’s expectations have changed dramatically over the last 30 years. The global skills shortage, means that companies can no longer pay lip service to the hackneyed saying “Our people are our most important resource”. Talent retention and development at all levels are now a critical component of any decent strategic plan and this generation of workers will not accept the old, directional styles of leadership. They expect to be consulted and involved in decision-making and empowered to take genuine responsibility – not just simply given a job of work to do. Moreover, if they don’t get what they want, they simply leave. Loyalty is no longer a given.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 7, 2014 10:14 AM

Leadership and leader are nouns. Leading is a verb suggesting a process.

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.

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:
