When you want your audience to remember and even act on what you share with them, the key is focusing on what they truly need to know. Unnecessary background material or too much detail will only detract from your message and leave your listeners confused and overwhelmed.

The separation disconnect that I am referring to is between the strategy that is formulated by the executive team and the employees tasked to implement it. It is rare that there is a good connection between the two.

The Best Leaders Allow Themselves to Be Persuaded

The Best Leaders Allow Themselves to Be Persuaded | Business | Scoop.it

When we think of great leaders, certain characteristics come to mind: They have confidence in their abilities and conviction in their beliefs. They “trust their gut,” “stay the course,” and “prove others wrong.” They aren’t “pushovers,” and they certainly don’t “flip-flop.” But this archetype is terribly outdated. Having spent three years studying many of the world’s most successful leaders for my new book, Persuadable, I’ve learned one surprising thing they have in common: a willingness to be persuaded.

Alan Mulally, the vaunted CEO who saved Ford Motor Company, is, for example, exceptionally skeptical of his own opinions. Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful hedge fund managers, insists that his team ruthlessly second-guess his thinking. Christine Lagarde, managing director of the IMF, seeks out information that might disprove her beliefs about the world and herself. In our increasingly complex world, these leaders have realized that the ability to consider emerging evidence and change their minds accordingly provides extraordinary advantages.

This Inspiring TED Talk Celebrates Imperfection as the Key to Success

This Inspiring TED Talk Celebrates Imperfection as the Key to Success | Business | Scoop.it

True innovation starts with ditching the ideal of perfection.

 

Studies have shown that self-doubt can potentially be a major hurdle to women's success. There's evidence we might not ask for a promotion, apply for a job we're absolutely qualified for or execute on a big idea because we're not as confident in our abilities as men.

What’s Next in Computing?

What’s Next in Computing? | Business | Scoop.it

The computing industry progresses in two mostly independent cycles: financial and product cycles. There has been a lot of handwringing lately about where we are in the financial cycle. Financial markets get a lot of attention. They tend to fluctuate unpredictably and sometimes wildly. The product cycle by comparison gets relatively little attention, even though it is what actually drives the computing industry forward. We can try to understand and predict the product cycle by studying the past and extrapolating into the future.

Role models are the new royalty, so be a great one

Role models are the new royalty, so be a great one | Business | Scoop.it

In the age of social media, role models are the new royalty. Whether it's labels such as #fitspiration, #bodyspiration or - the hashtag I most frequently see on my newsfeed - #careerspiration, it seems like everyone is looking for someone to look up to. With power, though, comes great responsibility.

As a CEO in a high-profile publishing role, I am in the lucky position to frequently meet people who say my work, books or conference addresses have inspired, motivated and guided them. I love hearing this, but it always leaves me with a slight sense of 'imposter syndrome'. Because, lets face it, I'm only human, and no single person has all the answers. What if I lead someone down the wrong path, and offer advice that doesn't serve them?

The Office Hierarchy Is Officially Dead

The Office Hierarchy Is Officially Dead | Business | Scoop.it
These organizations are moving away from the top-down hierarchies, inherited from the industrial age, suggests a Deloitte survey, released Wednesday, of more than 7,000 companies. Traditionally, jobs were organized by function—sales people worked with sales people; marketing people with marketing—and success meant moving up the chain. But in a modern workplace, people have less-defined jobs and move laterally from project to project, said Deloitte's Josh Bersin, who worked on the study. "We're now operating businesses as networks of teams," he said. Companies that haven't already made this shift are thinking about it—92 percent of those surveyed cited organizational redesign as the top priority.

Keep Calm and Manage Disruption

Keep Calm and Manage Disruption | Business | Scoop.it
However, just because the hypothesized link between disruptive technologies and the failure of a company is weak does not necessarily mean disruption cannot happen. Instead, my contention here is that two decades of managerial scholarship has revealed a set of reasons why that link might not be present strongly in the data. Specifically, contrary to some claims, disruption can be averted. Indeed, although disruption can happen, many businesses find ways of managing through it, and this can weaken any relationship between a disruptive event and the actual disruption. To be sure, facing disruption is no picnic.

Five Keys to Communicating Remotely

Five Keys to Communicating Remotely | Business | Scoop.it

Never has the desire to and need to communicate with people distant from us been more pressing or important than it is today. And while communication is complex enough to start with, when we are doing it at a distance, even more barriers arise. Increasingly teams are working in different locations and in different time zones; and while there are productivity advantages that can come from that fact, if we don’t get the communication right, those productivity advantages can be quickly lost, and the advantages can become liabilities.

Contributors and Detractors: Ranking Countries’ Impact on Global Innovation

Contributors and Detractors:  Ranking Countries’ Impact on  Global Innovation | Business | Scoop.it

Most studies comparing countries on innovation rank them on innovation capabilities and outcomes. But no study has assessed the impact of countries’ innovation policies on the broader global innovation system. This study assesses this by inquiring whether countries are attempting to bolster their innovation capacities through positive-sum policies such as investments in R&D, education, or tax incentives for innovation that contribute positively to the global body of knowledge and stock of innovation; or if they are trying to compete through negative-sum “innovation mercantilist” policies such as localization barriers to trade, export subsidization, or failing to adequately protect foreign intellectual property (IP) rights (e.g., through the issuance of compulsory licenses or even outright IP theft).
