Leadership development goals can also have an impact on organizations.  GE and Westinghouse were at one time of equal size and stature.  While many factors ultimately caused GE to leap forward, one of them was GE’s decision to invest in developing leaders.

Decision accuracy in complex environments is often maximized by small group sizes

Individuals in groups, whether composed of humans or other animal species, often make important decisions collectively, including avoiding predators, selecting a direction in which to migrate and electing political leaders. Theoretical and empirical work suggests that collective decisions can be more accurate than individual decisions, a phenomenon known as the ‘wisdom of crowds’.

[...] Our results demonstrate that the conventional view of the wisdom of crowds may not be informative in complex and realistic environments, and that being in small groups can maximize decision accuracy across many contexts.

The Couzin lab (Princeton) is focused on 'group animal behavior,' and although this paper isn't available directly, the title made me wonder if the observations might apply to the way we make decisions in what is certainly a complex environment...  Perhaps worth a read...

Damien Thouvenin's curator insight, May 3, 2:58 AM

Deux chercheurs de l'université de Princeton démontent la soi-disant "sagesse des foules" et montrent que, si l'intelligence collective d'un petit groupe produit de meilleurs résultats que le travail individuel, ceci est en revanche faut pour de grands groupes. La diversité des points de vue et des sensibilités d'un petit groupe tend à filtrer le "bruit" environnant tandis qu'il est amplifié par une foule.

The Two Leadership Truths - Human Capital Institute | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Too many people aspire to leadership roles for the wrong reasons. “Becoming a leader,” they think, “is the best way to make the most money” or “get the most perks” or “have the most control.” Ambition fuels achievement and is essential to a thriving career. But it is a mistake to pursue leadership roles for selfish reasons. Seeking leadership roles shouldn’t be about what the role can do to advance your career. Lots of things can help you be an effective leader. But selfishness isn’t one of them.

Why asking better questions is often more important than finding answers...

Beth Kanter's curator insight, April 27, 7:35 PM

"The important and difficult job is never to find the right answers, it is to find the right question." Peter Drucker, The Practice of Management (1954)



3. Set aside time every day to sit, think, and write down better questions--about yourself and your organization. Gregersen's 4-24 Project is an attempt to start a movement among leaders to ask better questions. Specifically, Gregersen is urging leaders to take four minutes every day to write out all the questions they have about anything personal or professional.

While there are potential business ROIs in the activity--including, but not limited to, articulating disruptive questions for your company--there are also personal benefits. First and foremost, there's the meditative practice of simply sitting and thinking. For at least four minutes a day, you will (ostensibly) remove your mind from your immediate to-do list, and think only of questions. On more stressful days, these questions will, of course, pertain to your to-do list, as opposed to long-term, big-picture, high-concept thoughts. But even then, you'll at least gain the benefit of venting. 

Over time, says Gregersen, you'll be able to do what Christensen did as an HBS student: Review your lists of questions, and notice the patterns. 


Dave Wood's curator insight, April 28, 12:09 AM

As a coach you get to ask the disruptive questions that uncover leadership  blind spots.  Some key ideas here which can be enhanced by visually recording your coaching sessions.

John Michel's curator insight, April 22, 4:15 AM

When faced with a problem, highly emotionally intelligent people want to solve it as soon as possible. They don’t dwell on the actual issue or the outcome that has occurred. Plus, according to Travis Bradberry, president of TalentSmart, emotionally intelligent people are most effective when they are solving problems, as opposed to merely sitting on them.

Michael Binzer's curator insight, April 27, 8:26 AM

Generation C and technology will transform business and the workplace.

 

Individuals will need to demonstrate adaptability and flexibility to rapidly changing work environments and become lifelong learners.


Also a focus on critical thinking skills, and a prominence on soft skills such as interpersonal skills and collaboration will be valued more than pure technical skills. A revised and redefined role for Human Resources in organizations will be critical, by developing a mindset to hire people for positions that do not even exist today, and helping us navigate a collaborative economy.

The effect of reflection on learning is mediated by greater perceived ability to achieve a goal (i.e., self-efficacy). The study results reveal reflection to be a powerful mechanism behind learning, confirming the words of American philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer John Dewey: We do not learn from experience ... we learn from reflecting on experience."

Danger of Hierarchy in a Fast-Moving World

Danger of Hierarchy in a Fast-Moving World | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

The basic strength of hierarchies is that if they are designed well -- the departments/silos make sense in light of your business strategy and your competition, there aren't too many levels, the rules that accompany the hierarchy are smart and sensible -- hierarchies can be an incredibly efficient and reliable way to get work done. In fact nobody has found a more efficient and reliable way.

 

The problem is that hierarchies change slowly to changing conditions, to new rapid-fire strategic challenges, to technological discontinuities. They're not agile, they can't jump to the left or to the right quickly. In today's world you have to be fast and agile, but you also have to be efficient and reliable.

 

So the problem is that a well-designed hierarchy is still needed but it's insufficient. You need two systems, one that can handle speed with agility, and one that gets the work done today with quality and efficiency. And the two have to work together hand in glove.
