Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 21, 12:59 PM

Now here's an unusual piece that makes a lot of great points about the universal truths imbedded in fairy tales, and leadership wisdom.


The article is written by Manfred Kets de Vries of INSEAD. Here's one truth he shares:


"On a deeper level fairy tales can touch on humankind’s deepest fears and desires and be a source of inspiration. By identifying with characters in fairy tales, executives can come to better understand their own internal struggles and turn into more self-aware leaders."


There's more in his discussion of the fairy tale in the leader's journey (and it's not about the hero), and a section on the 5 Deadly Dangers of Leadership.


Go read it now for a different twist on business storytelling.

Ian Berry's curator insight, May 21, 9:19 PM

Indeed lessons for all in this. I like the 5 leadership dangers particularly the first one about self-knowledge. Everyone can be a leader. Key is being and being requires remarkable self-awareness. The reason most leadership development programs in business schools and organisations fail to produce remarkable leaders is because the focus is on doing more than being.

What Kind Of Leadership Is Needed In Flat Hierarchies?

What Kind Of Leadership Is Needed In Flat Hierarchies? | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Our shift from bureaucratic to distributed leadership took nearly a century. According to Deborah Ancona, a professor of management and organizational studies at MIT, companies in America circa 1920s were "super bureaucracies." Then, in the 1960s, people focused on interpersonal relationships and lots of discussions centered around trust and empathy. In the 1990s, it was all about organizations needing to undergo large-scale changes and vision. Finally, today’s workplace centers on what’s called variously eco-leadership, collaborative leadership, or distributed leadership.

"It’s all about your network," says Ancona, author of X-Teams: How to Build Teams That Lead, Innovate, and Succeed, as in who do you know outside and inside of your team. "If you understand the internal network in your company, you have a higher chance of moving ahead

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, May 28, 10:41 AM

Great article by Fast Company on leadership in so-called 'flat organisations'. What is necessary to make the real shift from top-down and bureaucratic to more distributed leadership? MIT professor Deborah Ancona discusses the answers.

 

Her keywords are: transparency, strategic mindset for everyone, connectivity and (innovative) collision.

Crowdsourcing Leadership

Crowdsourcing Leadership | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Management gurus tell us what leadership is…and isn't. Years of research have taken us from employee-driven quality control, to empowerment, to "followership." By "turning the pyramid upside down," many of these approaches encourage employees to do what they think is best to serve customers, improve processes and innovate. Beyond these, however, in the age of closer and closer connectedness we are seeing a new organizational phenomenon. We call it crowdsourcing leadership.
Much like composer Eric Whitacre, who uses crowdsourcing to splice together individual singers' voices to create masterful choral works (albeit with digital technology), business leaders are increasingly asking employees to lend their voices—and talents—to the chorus of direction and leadership.

Checklist for Emotional Intelligence

Kudos's curator insight, April 10, 10:26 AM

The best leaders are always ones that can relate to their team, keep a calm demeanour in crisis or conflict and work to support their team to help make them better verses dictating or blaming for what is wrong. The best Managers look for what their team does right and recognizes those behaviours and results. Managing people well is much harder then it looks, recognizing people for what they do well and how they contribute is a great place to start to be a good emotional intelligent leader.
