I've got a few scars from risks that didn't work out as I originally hoped.  But I'd rather be a risk taker than play is safe all the time.  How about you? #energizedleader

John Michel's curator insight, March 21, 2013 6:25 PM

Entrepreneurs have to take big risks in order to succeed, but even well-known leaders are often terrified to leap. In one famous example, fear of failure almost kept Kevin Rose from starting Digg, the enormously successful social news site that made him a multi-millionaire.Over time, he learned to trust his gut by taking the initiative to learn sides of the business that were unfamiliar or scary at first.

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, September 22, 5:24 AM

An “insightfully aware” leader has a profound and clear understanding of his or her purpose and the reasons behind it. Self-awareness of values helps leaders to reflect upon their emotions, goals, needs and motives. Individuals who are able to identify and articulate their values will generate meaningful insights about how they see themselves, the circumstances they face, the behaviours they display, and their potential reactions to specific situations. Comprehending their values (personal, work and organisational) enables leaders to know and accomplish what they believe is important.

Leadership In The Age Of Complexity: From Hero To Host, by Margaret Wheatley and Deborah Frieze

Leadership In The Age Of Complexity: From Hero To Host, by Margaret Wheatley and Deborah Frieze | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
For too long, too many of us have been entranced by heroes. Perhaps it's our desire to not have to do the hard work, to rely on someone else to figure things out. But perhaps it's time for us to face the truth of our situation -- that we're all in this together, that we all have a voice -- and figure out how to mobilize the hearts and minds of everyone in our workplaces and communities.

More than we’d probably like to admit so many of our days are spent in a state of self-delusion, an internal monologue of justifying our actions, both good and bad. When we do something wrong, our evolutionary instincts kick in and we do anything we can to not acknowledge the obvious: sometimes, it’s all our fault.

Great article by Kristi Hedges on the role of leadership development. Love her insights.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, September 26, 10:23 AM

From the article:

#5: Clear and honest program rationale.

Finally, we also have to be courageous about the reason for the leadership program in the first place. If there’s a serious deficit that needs to be addressed, it’s better to be honest about it. If high performers are being put into a program to escalate promotion, then be clear about that. If the program is meant to top-grade skills for current positions, that’s fine too.

Everyone is well meaning, and this can get in the way. Too often, companies disguise, or don’t know, the real reason for the program. They worry about setting incorrect expectations. Just because a senior leader wants it doesn’t make a program meaningful. Greater transparency about why participants are selected and what the program will lead to is critical. Otherwise, there’s widespread skepticism and even frustration which foils learning every time.

Its imperative that leaders all receive the core skills needed I'm impact change, engagement and trust that lead to hi performance.

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...

Of course and it' an interesting aspect that the  staff is how influenced by how the decision is made... decisions might be powerful  and  with full of confidence made by either by more thinking by more by intuition, the essence is the  congruity, the authenticity of those making it and the transparence of the process...
