5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change

5 Steps For Leading Through Adaptive Change | integrated talent management |
Leadership and management are two distinctly different but complimentary skill sets that all companies need. Leaders make sure the organization is doing the right things, while managers make sure they do those things right.

John Michel's curator insight, August 14, 2014 6:14 AM

Great leaders that guide a company through necessary changes don’t do it all by themselves. They bring all team members together and leverage their talent pool in a collaborative manner. This creates buy-in at all levels which is critical. They identify stakeholders and place the responsibility on them for rolling out new processes. Change doesn’t have to be stressful. Face it head on and keep the company moving forward.

Great share here via The General, @John Michel.  I totally agree with the first one:

Explore what YOU love, and own it. – If you spend your life trying to define yourself by what someone else loves, you’re going to be miserable. 

Try things – try everything.  Explore.  See what makes you hear music inside and what makes your heart swell, and then go do it.  Find out everything you can about it. 

Find other people who love it too.  If you waste time pretending to like something just because other people you think are “cool” like it, you’re going to end up with the wrong people and circumstances in your life.  Love what you love and be yourself, and you will end up with a lifestyle and relationships that make you truly happy

The Mirror Test - Why Self-Awareness Is the Secret Weapon for Habit Change

The Mirror Test - Why Self-Awareness Is the Secret Weapon for Habit Change | integrated talent management |

More than we’d probably like to admit so many of our days are spent in a state of self-delusion, an internal monologue of justifying our actions, both good and bad. When we do something wrong, our evolutionary instincts kick in and we do anything we can to not acknowledge the obvious: sometimes, it’s all our fault.

David Jardin's insight:

Emotional intelligence and effective leadership are unattainable without self-awareness.

John Michel's curator insight, August 18, 2014 6:26 AM

Over time, this becomes our routine, our default reaction, and we fail to stop and reflect on what we’re doing. To make it even more difficult, many of us don’t have the luxury of someone being accountable for us (who does?), helping us recognize our mistakes and their repercussions.

Charlotte Hitchcock's curator insight, August 19, 2014 5:37 AM

Know yourself before you  lead others. Understand why you respond as you do and  its affect on others.  Honesty about yourself can be hard but in the end it is worth it

If you want to go need to know who you are!

The Importance Of Perspective-Taking In Leadership

The Importance Of Perspective-Taking In Leadership | integrated talent management |

Whether you’re selling a product, pitching an idea, or trying to get employees to do something different or do something in a different way, perspective-taking has become an essential element in moving others.


Over the last decade, social scientists like Adam Galinsky of Columbia University have deepened our understanding of perspective-taking. Their work yields three ways leaders can become more effective.


1. CHECK YOUR POWER. Galinsky and others have found that when people feel powerful, their perspective-taking abilities degrade. The more powerful we feel, the more we anchor in our own perspective rather than adjusting to another’s. And that can make others less likely to go along. But briefly reducing one’s feelings of power (“Maybe this employee I’m asking to do something needs our company much less than our company needs her.”) can increase the acuity of our perspective-taking, which in turn can make us more effective.


2. PERSPECTIVE-TAKING ISN’T TOUCHY-FEELY. Perspective-taking sounds a lot like empathy, but the two qualities are siblings, not identical twins. Empathy — the ability to understand another’s emotional state — is an essential human quality. But research has shown that, in commercial settings such as negotiations, understanding the other side’s thoughts and interests, not simply their emotions and feelings, can be more effective in forging a deal. So if you’re in a high-stakes leadership situation, definitely be emotionally intelligent. But use your head as much as your heart.

3. DON’T FORGET MIMICRY. Mimicking others’ posture, gesture, and expressions sounds like the sleazy tactics of a used car salesman. But ample research has shown that mimicry is a natural part of human behavior, an instinctive way we understand others. You can enhance your attunement skills, and thereby your leadership, simply by being conscious of how the other person is standing, moving, and talking and ever so slightly mirroring what they’re doing.

David Jardin's insight:

Perspective enhances relationships when it lets us see past WHAT someone did to help/anger/hurt/etc. to understand WHY they did it.

Chris Brown's curator insight, August 6, 2014 2:05 PM

Before you link to this article, try this experiment:

First, with the hand you use for writing, snap your fingers five times quickly. Now, with the forefinger of that hand, on your forehead draw a capital E. Believe it or not, how you drew that letter might reveal how you act as a leader.

This article by Daniel Pink provides some good insight on the importance of perspectives in leadership.  The three suggestions that will help you be more effective can be summed up in checking your power, head & heart, and mirror.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, August 7, 2014 12:39 PM

There's no doubt that leaders who fully appreciate their organization's  and their followers perspectives will be much more effective. It is after all, what defines their job.

The Paradox of Trust, Vulnerability and Leadership

The Paradox of Trust, Vulnerability and Leadership | integrated talent management |

Humans tend to model the behavior they see. When leaders appear to be in control, know everything, never doubt, or never ask for help or input, employees think they have to do the same.  The behavior they see and deem as acceptable is to be strong, not question, never be wrong, and always know.  The opposite behavior is a sign of weakness and is unacceptable

David Jardin's insight:

Great definition: Leadership is a fine line between the confidence and competence to earn and keep trust and the hubris and perfection that loses trust.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, August 11, 2014 7:15 PM

Leadership is a fine line between the confidence and competence to earn and keep trust.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, August 11, 2014 11:16 PM

Articles such as this one should be part of the conversation about School leadership which tends away from trust, paradox, and leadership and tends towards managing.
