Study shows that 90% of executives believe their businesses are being disrupted or reinvented by digital business models, and 70% believe they do not have the right skills, leader, or operating structure to adapt. It’s not a good position to be in.

Very good article by Josh Bersin in HBR here. In addition to the comment from Kenneth Mikkelsen, I find the comment on the importance of culture very interesting. 
Bersin says "As we’ve studied digital leadership over the last few years, we find something else important: Culture is key. Success is largely dependent on people sharing information with each other, partnering, and continuously educating themselves. This is able to happen when you build a collective, transparent, and deeply shared culture. CEOs who are digital leaders are continuously reinforcing the culture, communicating values, and aligning people around the culture whenever something goes wrong." The shift to more use and sharing of metrics is revealing too.

4 leadership takeaways from the UK election | London Business School

4 leadership takeaways from the UK election | London Business School | Effective Leadership and Management | Scoop.it
“What is the General Election on 8 June really about: leadership, policies or other issues entirely? And are there lessons for business? There are four universals that apply in both politics and business: First, leadership differs according to where you are in the leadership journey. Second, identity and character are mixed in with more primitive reactions to imagery. Third, the nature of the challenge is not a given. And fourth, the group identity of “followers” can hinder effectiveness. Let’s take a good look at each of these”

Change Management Is Understood; Change Leadership Is Overlooked

The effects of change are felt up, down, and around our organizations. Change can be seen as positive or negative, exciting or demoralizing, vital or unnecessary, easy or difficult-often all of the above.

The role of mid- and senior-level leaders in making change happen is critical. Managers of teams, projects, departments, and functions are in a unique and powerful position. These are the leaders who must translate the vision of change from the C-Suite to the ground troops, help direct reports navigate the emotions of change and transition, and influence change agents to generate alignment and commitment for the change effort to be successful.

How can managers become better equipped to steer their organizations and their people through change?

In my experience in public and private institutions, when it has been necessary to make important changes that significantly affect the collaborators and the rest of the employees, it was necessary that I become my main animator, since most employees opposed the changes usually passively.

5 Leadership Lessons I Learned From Coach K

This week, I walked over to Cameron Indoor Stadium. Standing in the Hall of Honor, I got goosebumps when I see how far we have come and what we stand for beyond basketball, beyond sports - character, teamwork, relentless pursuit of excellence, and using our talents in the service of society.During my visit, I also saw Coach K. He showed me a picture of him as a young cadet at West Point. He looked no different from today - earnest gaze, down to earth affability, and unwavering sense of purpose.

Do business leaders really need empathy?

Do business leaders really need empathy? | Effective Leadership and Management | Scoop.it

Putting yourself in someone else's shoes can leave you vulnerable to bias.But there’s actually something of a debate on about this. While the likes of Barack Obama speak of an ‘empathy deficit’ that needs to be resolved, and ITV chairman Peter Bazalgette writes of its virtues in his book The Empathy Instinct: How to Create a More Civil Society, others are not convinced.Yale psychologist Paul Bloom, for instance, calls empathy a terrible moral guide in his book Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion. For him:‘Empathy is biased, pushing us in the direction of parochialism and racism. It is short-sighted, motivating actions that might make things better in the short term but lead to tragic results in the future. It is innumerate, favouring the one over the many. It can spark violence; our empathy for those close to us is a powerful force for war and atrocity towards others. It is corrosive of personal relationships; it exhausts the spirit and can diminish the force of kindness and love.’
