Is Your Managerial Ego Too Big?

Is Your Managerial Ego Too Big? | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Thirty years ago an empire builder might have been applauded for chutzpah. But times have changed. In recent years there has been growing scrutiny on the dangers of empire building; management experts have come to see it as a hidden toxin at the root of many business dysfunctions, leading to excess spending, anemic growth and turf wars.

 

In today's lean landscape, there is little tolerance for rogue hoarders and bloat. Further, leadership philosophies are evolving from the rigid command-and-control structure to a collaborative model. Power-hungry alphas are seen as undermining the collective good and hindering employee engagement.

How Successful People Cure Their Blindspots

Do you know what your leadership blindspots are? It’s a trick question because, by definition, blindspots are areas where you lack awareness of your weakness. Many coaches casually refer to them as “derailers.” A leader continues to advance and climb the career ladder until an unknown weakness suddenly derails her career. Robert [...]

Really enjoyed this article!

 

As an Executive Coach one of the greatest aha moments comes when b.lindspots are revealed.  Leaders will say things like "this is the first time I have ever heard this, or I have never been told this by anyone else." 

 

We all have blindspots, and as soon as we uncover some old ones new ones will certainly surface.

 

Enjoy the article.

10 Steps To Effective Listening

10 Steps To Effective Listening | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems. Listening builds friendships and careers. It saves money and marriages.

5 Ways Leaders Enable Innovation In Their Teams

5 Ways Leaders Enable Innovation In Their Teams | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Leaders are accountable to assemble teams and lead them to optimal performance outcomes. An effective leader recognizes the importance of embracing differences in people and knows how to connect the dots amongst those differences to get the best outcomes from the team. This is what cultivates a workplace environment of continuous improvements, innovation and initiative. Leaders must foster a commitment from the team to embrace an innovation mindset where each employee learns to apply the differences that exist in one another for their own success and that of the organization. Here are 5 immediate things leaders can do with their teams to foster an environment of innovation and initiative. They apply whether you are forming a new team or revamping an existing one.

Great scoop here via Kenneth Mikkelsen.  It is amazing how our behavior can affect other peoples' mindset which, in turn will affect their behavior.  Good lesson for any supervisor who wants to be considered a leader. 


Here is my favorite section:

 

A leader’s failure to recognize and shift mindsets can stall the change efforts of an entire organization. Indeed, because of the underlying power of a leader’s mindsets to guide an entire organization toward positive change, any effort to become better leaders should start with ourselves, by recognizing the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that drive us.

Creativity is a chaotic place to be and for managers this is not where they want to be. They want certainty, but the real certainty is in uncertainty. This requires conversations and embracing the uncertainty along the way. Consider the way we hold curriculum as a plan that leads to learning. When learning does happen, it is because the classroom is a chaotic places where great conversations happen and bring meaning and life to inert outcomes.

Thinking critically and strategically doesn't come natural to most people.  The good news is that it can be taught and learned by willing students.  The seminar version of this type of thinking is typified by the Socratic approach, which consists of breaking down arguments through verbal parry, including challenging assumptions buttressing an argument.  This piece offers 3 suggestions and gives examples how one might implement this approach.

This is an interesting interview and video on authenticity in leadership.

 

(KEY QUOTE)  So, traditionally in leadership studies, we tend to focus on styles or actions of leaders, which of course are important. But I think the way research is going, and what we are really uncovering now, is almost as important is the identity of the leader. Because of course if we think of leadership, the counter is followership, and how do we invoke followership? It is often invoked when people see in the leader a piece of themselves. So it is not just about influence and providing a vision, it is about representation. So does this person represent me as an individual? If I feel that they do, they have shared concerns, I am much more likely to follow them and to, if you like, give them leadership or an authority in the group.
