The Strength of Vulnerable Leaders

The Strength of Vulnerable Leaders | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

In business, vulnerability is generally seen as weakness. Recent headlines scream for business to avoid vulnerability or suffer the consequences: “30% of Auto Parts Retailers’ Business Is Vulnerable to Amazon,” “Five Industries Most Vulnerable to Digital Disruption,” “Apple Users Are Also Vulnerable to WannaCry-Type Attacks.” Having a strategy or a model or a position that is susceptible to attack is the last thing investors, executives, and employees want. By the same token, personal vulnerability is considered a liability for leaders. Conventional wisdom holds that it is difficult to lead or negotiate or make demands from a position of perceived weakness.

But it turns out that the popular perception of vulnerability is a myth — one that keeps leaders from being effective. In fact, there are plenty of reasons to believe that vulnerability can be an asset for leaders, as Emma Seppala argued in this 2014 Harvard Business Review article. Why? Vulnerable leaders inspire, are more authentic, and build bonds that lead to increased performance.

To Recover from Burnout, Regain Your Sense of Control

To Recover from Burnout, Regain Your Sense of Control | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

You feel exhausted, ineffective, unaccomplished, and cynical. Maybe you feel like no matter how hard you work, you can never keep up. Or that you can’t make your boss happy no matter how hard you try. And you’re beginning to question your professional situation: Am I in the right job? The right company? The right career? I used to feel passionate about going into work but now I dread Monday and can’t wait until Friday. Will I ever feel excited about my life and work again?

These are classic signs that you’re feeling burned out. And in that state, you often feel like your circumstances are out of your control — as if everything around you is working against you. You might think: Everyone else is to blame for my burnout. But this victim mindset only blocks you from doing anything about your situation. While you’re complaining about other people, the days of your life are ticking by.

Jim Collins On The ‘Beautiful, Giant Question’ That Launched His Career | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
“How do you make society both more productive and more humane at the same time?” Because if you think about it, it’s a beautiful, giant question. I think that the grandeur of that question and the idea that, “Okay, then you’re running a company,” or, “You’re running a non-profit,” or…you’re doing what sort of fits into that. But the idea of a, “how do you make things both more productive and more humane at the same time,” is one of those human questions.

Research: Why 70 Percent of Employees Aren't Working to Their Full Potential Comes Down to 1 Simple Reason

Research: Why 70 Percent of Employees Aren't Working to Their Full Potential Comes Down to 1 Simple Reason | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
 
 

According to Gallup research, an astounding 70 percent of U.S. employees are not showing up to work fully committed to deliver their best performance. Adding insult to injury, 52 percent of those workers are basically sleepwalking through their day, and 18 percent of them are busy acting out their unhappiness.

 

So what gives? Gallup has been preaching for two decades that in order to reverse this crisis, great managers (like Google's own) that understand human nature and how to motivate and inspire diverging needs of people, need to be put into management roles at every level of the organization.

 

When a company raises employee engagement levels across every business unit through great management of people, it leads to higher profitability, productivity, and lower turnover.

The Framework identifies companies whose leadership is going beyond doing just what is legal to choosing what is right in meeting all stakeholder needs. The FACTS® Framework is the most comprehensive and data driven ongoing study on this subject. We analyze companies quarterly and rank order showing trends by company, sector and market capitalization. Read more about the Framework at this link.

Best Places to Work 2017

Want to know which companies have the best corporate culture?

Then check out this list. It's based on what employees themselves say. We don't know exactly what they were asked, so how do you know if you measure up?

 

First things first: here's a definition of corporate culture:

It's the pervasive values, beliefs and attitudes that characterize a company.

 

What generates a corporate culture that's a great place to work? These are your essential  ingredients:

  1. Vision -- that is engaging and compelling
  2. Values -- that are lived
  3. Processes -- that back up the values
  4. People  -- that embrace those values
  5. Narratives -- compelling ones that shape the culture
  6. Place -- the environment you work in shapes the culture

 

Narratives play the biggest role, because it's through your stories that you convey your vision and how you are living it, your values and how you are living those, the amazing people you work with and their contributions, and how the environment you've created allows people to do extraordinary work.

 

The health of a culture is simply a reflection of the quality of the narratives told. That includes types of stories, quality of stories, who is telling stories, when and where stories are told, and the organization's capacity for story listening.

 

A company's vision, values, processes and place are the foreground. A company's narratives are the background that informs all the rest.

 

If you want to strengthen your culture, focus on narratives first. They are both your diagnostic for assessing your culture, and your remedy for fixing it.
