The coercive leadership style has its place in crisis and turnaround situations, when all is in chaos and the sitiation needs a «savior». In other situations than that, a coercive leadership style is not only completely useless, it will eventually create a real crisis...for which SOMEONE ELSE will be hired to bump you out as a first step to solve the crisis you have yourself created.

The Foundation of Collaborative Leadership

The Foundation of Collaborative Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

In an industrial age, people went to factories and worked together to produce the outcomes. When required, they collaborated in person. Supervisors commanded and controlled others and leadership was often equated with “taking power”. Factories depended heavily on rigid top-down hierarchies and people were viewed simply as dispensable workers.

Better Management Could Spur a New Era of Economic Growth | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

What if managers changed their approaches and got that set of rules right? Could they unlock all the energy being held in check?  Could we collectively innovate in the practice of management so much that we ushered in a new era of growth – something we might call the Great Transformation?

Build Your Own All-Star Team

Build Your Own All-Star Team | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Let’s imagine that you have recently assessed your company’s talent, and that you found plenty of high-performing executives and employees. Yet somehow your company’s overall performance isn’t where it should be — all those “A” players just aren’t getting the job done. Why?

 

The fact is, it isn’t enough just to hire the best. If you want to boost the productivity of your organization’s human capital, you also have to deploy those high performers effectively — put them to work so they can deliver the results they’re capable of. One of the most effective methods of deployment I’ve seen is to create all-star teams. Teams like these are a kind of force multiplier: if you group (say) three individuals from your list of A players into a team, you’ll typically get more than three times the output.

(From the article): Build a small bet culture. Want to succeed? Often, companies are advised to double down, bet big, and try to become the next Apple. But Zolli says, alluding to a concept popularized by Peter Sims’ book Little Bets, it’s far wiser to have a “small bet” culture. “Many wins are not on homeruns like the iPod,” he says. “Instead, companies win on singles, and incrementally improving.”

It is the relationships between the leader and the followers that create the opportunities to coach in the workplace. These relationships are built on mutual respect and trust. If your relationship with a staff member is strained, not well-established or is not on solid ground for one reason or another, it is unrealistic to expect your attempts of coaching to be well-received

Empathy and Good Managers

Empathy and Good Managers | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

The traditional view of management is to drive results at all costs. Be hard on employees and they will perform. That employees’ personal lives don't matter, as they have nothing to do with work. Yet we know today that employees’ personal and professional lives do collide. Today’s workplace environment calls for an evolved way of management and of leadership. Today’s managers need to tap into other motivators to get results and inspire the best performance from employees.

In life, there are leaders, and there are followers. If you’re not leading, you need to figure out who you’re following. Take a look at your leader and be honest, because if they match too many of these traits, you’re following the wrong leader. Be careful when judging, however, because it’s always possible the problem is actually you.

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

The 21st century has brought much in the way of turmoil and change to the world of business. As a consequence, ways of doing business that were once universally accepted now seem outdated and inflexible in an age where knowledge drives economies and socially responsible corporate attitudes influence stakeholders and shareholders alike.

 

With such changes have come new priorities and responsibilities and it is in this environment that the theory of servant leadership has flourished as a management style for the redefined business world of today, one that can serve as a cornerstone for organisations wishing to build corporate structures based on stewardship, empowerment and trust.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 14, 2014 10:35 AM

(From the article) Servant leadership will benefit organisations dependent on knowledge workers and in environments where high levels of creativity and innovation are the norm. Knowledge workers in particular require a sense of autonomy in order to function at their best and it is the responsibility of the servant leader to create this workplace freedom for them.

Having a corporate social network where your culture can thrive and stories can be shared is key.
