No Time to Be Nice at Work

No Time to Be Nice at Work | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Rudeness and bad behavior have all grown over the last decades, particularly at work. How we treat one another at work matters. Insensitive interactions have a way of whittling away at people’s health, performance and souls.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, June 21, 8:42 AM

Bosses produce demoralized employees through a string of actions: walking away from a conversation because they lose interest; answering calls in the middle of meetings without leaving the room; openly mocking people by pointing out their flaws or personality quirks in front of others; reminding their subordinates of their “role” in the organization and “title”; taking credit for wins, but pointing the finger at others when problems arise. Employees who are harmed by this behavior, instead of sharing ideas or asking for help, hold back.

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.

Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader

Ketchum Leadership Survey: The Rise of the Title-less Leader | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
A new Ketchum leadership study of more than 6,000 respondents in 12 countries reveals people are looking more to employees at all levels for leadership instead of just those at the top of the org chart. According to the fourth-annual Ketchum Leadership Communication Monitor (KLCM), 41 percent of respondents believe leadership should come mainly from the organization and all its employees, compared with 25 percent that believe leadership should come only from the CEO.

This aligns with three years of KLCM data pointing to the demise of the CEO-as-celebrity leadership style and highlights a greater-than-ever opportunity for "leadership by all" – a collaborative and communicative culture that empowers employees at every level.

While the CEO, board and senior management still play an important role, the study suggests that employees throughout an organization can and should provide leadership. The survey identified the top five traits of an effective leader: leading by example (63 percent), communicating in an open and transparent way (61 percent), admitting mistakes (59 percent), bringing out the best in others (58 percent), and handling controversial issues or crises calmly and confidently (58 percent). These are traits that every CEO should possess, and also ones that every good employee would have.

Scott J. Simmerman's curator insight, July 2, 9:16 AM

We call it "leadership." It frames up as the engagement of the organization and its people to look for the countless performance improvement opportunities. Leadership CAN"T be only from the top down -- that is de-motivational and you know that, "A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world." (John LeCarre) -- It is the hands on people who know about most of the things that need to be fixed to optimize performance results.

Having advocated flat organizations for the last 5 years this study is very gratifying. However, even with the data incorporated here command and control will not go quietly into the night. Too many egos involved still. The time will come!

The Future Of Work And Our Social Compact

The Future Of Work And Our Social Compact | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Today’s life path requires us to learn more new things than a traditional education can possibly prepare us for. This is why we often see employee education and development programs appear in organizations to not only build contextual knowledge but also prepare people for changing roles. However, given the average tenure of jobs around 3.5 to 4 years, we should also consider the reality of voluntary and involuntary unemployment. The speed of knowledge becoming outdated and replaced is the other sword of Damocles over the traditional life path.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, June 21, 8:38 AM

We all need to be prepared to move more frequently through being in states of safety, learning and contributing. The implications are significant.


This implies that we should be spreading our education models in between periods of work, rather than lock ourselves in fixed multiyear education programs.


This also implies we shouldn’t simply save for retirement, but for periods of unemployment. We would need healthcare, liability and other insurances that lives with us, rather follow where we are employed. Our basic model of the social compact today would require a significant overhaul to support this alternative life path.
