John Michel's curator insight, July 8, 2013 7:47 PM

We're in the midst of a Great Dereliction — a historic failure of leadership, precisely when we need it most. Hence it's difficult, looking around, to even remember what leadership is. We're surrounded by people who are expert at winning — elections, deals, titles, bonuses, bailouts, profit. And often, we're told: they're the ones we should look up to — because it's the spoils and loot that really matter.

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.

How Leadership Behavior is Squashing Innovation and Creativity

How Leadership Behavior is Squashing Innovation and Creativity | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

For any organization to be successful, it has to continually innovate and evolve. This is one of the great business lessons that have withstood the test of time.

 

In his book, True Alignment: Linking Company Culture with Customer Needs for Extraordinary Results, author Edgar Papke notes that one of the keys to organizational success – especially in the area of innovation – is its employees’ ability to openly and confidently express their ideas.

 


The free flow of new ideas is essential for keeping an organization competitive, and is at the heart of building employee buy-in and getting them to take ownership of both their own work and the company’s objectives.

Time to change your mindset leaders. Don't be afraid to act like a child.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 12, 9:51 AM

(From the article): To children, the world is a place of constant wonder, and the simplest outing or activity can seem like a game or a safari in their eyes. Richard Branson is just one of many entrepreneurs who seem to bring this brand of child-like wonder to everything they do.

 

If something seems boring, go at it as a five-year-old would. Turn it into a game. Imagine ways to change it around. You just may discover a different, better, or at least more interesting approach to the same boring task.

Wow, here is a provocative statement. 

 

Our mercantile minds have become so optimized to derive maximum margins that we tend to forget that it all starts with us, ahem, humans.

But why trust me on this. Just google Steve Jobs and/ or Richard Branson, or a myriad of other thinkers about what they have to say.

 

In the beginning there are neurons firing in each or our brains deriving a new idea or insight. Everything else comes later. So, value your humans. And, btw, they are not "resources" they are creative agents of change - if allowed to be.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 13, 4:39 PM

(From the article): "Rather than fooling themselves, or us, we should want our leaders to represent the truth, even when it makes their jobs harder," he says. "That is, after all, one of the great missions to which we entrust them: to take the complex information and broad vantage point to which they have access and convey it to the rest of us in a useful way. Doing so represents authentic and courageous leadership, even if it means being less certain."

How many times have you heard someone use the term, open mind?


“I am keeping an open mind.”


“Let’s approach this with an open mind.”


“I would definitely describe myself as someone with an open mind.”


“Please keep an open mind as I tell you this”.


I expect that, like me, you have heard it countless times, used by countless people, in countless settings. Add to this the number of occasions when the words were used, and we didn’t even notice.
But, have you ever taken the time to think about what having an open mind really means? How important it is to you? What mindsets, values and actions make you feel you are living your life with an open mind?

Is Your Leadership Style Right for the Digital Age?

Is Your Leadership Style Right for the Digital Age? | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Advancement in digital technologies has disrupted everything, including leadership styles.

 

Employees want more ownership rather than to follow instruction; customers want to participate in the marketing and development process; and leaders are finding that open and agile organizations are able to maneuver more effectively than organizations where all insight and direction comes from the top. In short, the autocratic Commander, whether brilliant or misguided, just won’t cut it anymore.

Becky Willmoth's curator insight, February 20, 6:08 AM

Within this article four leadership styles are discussed, with a place advocated for each. However in the digital age, the co-creator is the most desirable and rarest of the leadership styles described. Desirable as she or he generates more innovation, growth and profit. Rare as the capabilities required of this leader are complex and borne of authenticity and trust, with a preference for eco, rather than ego, systems.


To support the evolution of the co-creator, leadership development approaches should enable leaders to create broad and diverse networks, encourage them to bridge (or remove) boundaries, offer a space to relinquish control and the desire to create shared value. 

june holley's curator insight, February 20, 7:10 AM
