Are you a TOP Leader?

Are you a TOP Leader? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Working through a series of jobs with varying roles in leadership and in the midst the worst economic recession since the depression, I have had the opportunity o view life and work through different lenses. Even as a true millennial I have experienced the good, the bad, and the great examples in leadership. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that you can’t get anywhere leading people without trust, optimism and perspective. These are, “TOP Leaders”

The Benefits of Developing a Coaching Niche | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
One significant feature of coaching, as distinct from mentoring or consulting, is that coaches don’t provide advice. Rather than being subject-matter experts, our expertise is in the art of coaching. We ask the right questions to help clients find their own answers. A good coach, we insist, can coach anyone. It’s counterintuitive to narrow it ...read more.

How leaders face the Future of Work

How leaders face the Future of Work | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

We are living through a grand transition in the way people work. Constant and extraordinary innovation in machine learning and robotics has and will continue to reshape work. Some tasks will be replaced. Others will be augmented. No one — whether highly skilled or less skilled — will be untouched.

 

As people live longer and their working lives expand to many more years, they will move inextricably from the traditions of the three-stage life — full-time education leading to full-time work leading to full-time retirement — to something a great deal more fluid, flexible, and multi-staged. These technological and demographic forces will continue to influence family structure, as more women work and more partnerships are built on “career plus career” rather than the tradition of “career plus carer,” further changing the shape of the relationship between a family and the workplace.

Learning to create the future of work

Learning to create the future of work | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
I recently wrote that when we look at the future of work, the loss of current jobs, and the effects of automation we should use a compass to guide us, not a list of what the jobs of the future may look like. These kinds of maps get dated too quickly. In preparing for this new world of work, policy makers and organizational leaders should look at how they can enhance self-determination for everyone: by fostering autonomy, competence, and relatedness. We are moving into an age of augmented work where much of the value we create is intangible, the knowledge we require to work is implicit, and most of this will be learned informally, outside the classroom.

All businesses have a life cycle, but sometimes it becomes just too hard to take a business beyond the startup phase, in order to progress further along that cycle. Where this occurs, it is important for a business owner to know when to continue to perservere, and when to quit. This interesting article provides some good information, that may prove helpful, if you are ever faced with having to make such a decision.

Connecting Strategic Thinking to Results: Why Leaders Must See the Practical Side of Ideas

Connecting Strategic Thinking to Results: Why Leaders Must See the Practical Side of Ideas | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

One of the most important characteristics of a leader is the ability to think strategically. Leaders must be adept at recognizing themes, trends, and data applications and envisioning big ideas. These strategic thinking skills are vital.

However, there is an additional factor to strategic thinking that I often find missing from leaders’ skill sets: the ability to envision the organizational consequences of the strategic choices they are considering. A leader must understand the exact implications of including specific trends, themes, and ideas in an organization’s design. The ability to connect strategic ideas to results is particularly relevant for inexperienced leaders, who often mistake innovative thinking for strategic thinking.

Part of every manager’s job is to highlight what is unsatisfactory in a person’s performance – and to help them to resolve the issue. 


But feedback must be fair, and if managers deliver only negative feedback, employees can lose confidence, become defensive – and even consider moving job.

(Empathic Leadership) Why Empathy is Vital to Building Both a Lasting Business and a Great Company  And without it, you can’t be a great leader.

(Empathic Leadership) Why Empathy is Vital to Building Both a Lasting Business and a Great Company  And without it, you can’t be a great leader. | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
And without it, you can’t be a great leader.

As I wrote in a previous post, while traditionally viewed as a feminine trait—a weakness, even—empathy has now emerged as a critical leadership strength. Sure, there are some really great minds out there, great thinkers who are renowned for what they do, but without empathy, they’re not great leaders. Great leaders know when to lean someone into their strengths, and when to help alleviate or manage their challenges. And that requires an understanding of where that person is coming from. That requires empathy.

 

Without empathy, you can’t fully meet the needs of your customers.

 

Embracing empathy is not without its challenges, but the result is worth it.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably make regular use of Google search, as your default research assistant. Most people just use the basic Google search box, type in what they are looking to find, and then sift through the results. Google search is capable of so much more, and using the advanced Google search tips outlined in this article, will make your life much easier.
