Do you think like a hedgehog or a fox?

Do you think like a hedgehog or a fox? | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it
There are basically two types of person: one that believes that there are two types of person, and another that doesn’t. Despite having reservations about over-simplistic categorization, there are some theories which carry both practical wisdom and managerial relevance. One of the inspiring ones is the distinction between hedgehogs and foxes made by British philosopher Isaiah Berlin. He distinguishes between people who strive for a coherent world view with logic and an organising principle (hedgehogs), and others who are comfortable with loose ends and with not relating things systematically to a bigger picture (foxes).

The Best Managers Do These 6 Key Things Differently

The Best Managers Do These 6 Key Things Differently | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it

Effectively managing others is both a science and an art, just like programming or playing an instrument. Based on personality and past experiences, some people tend to naturally be stronger at leading and inspiring others. That being said, anybody can learn how to be an effective manager if given the right training.

 

What's nice about the world we live in today is that you don't have to reinvent the wheel to be a great leader. Countless studies have been poured into determining what makes for a good manager.

 

Whether you've always seen yourself as a natural leader or are scared in front of others, here are six science-backed tactics that are universally effective.

The Empathy Code : Satya Nadella - Reader's Digest

The Empathy Code : Satya Nadella - Reader's Digest | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it

Today, empathy is shaping the culture within Microsoft and ushering in a revival of the global tech giant with a current market value of $593.15 billion. 

 

A World of Empathy
Even as a busy CEO, Nadella is always searching to understand people's thoughts, feelings and ideas. Being an empathetic father, he says, makes him a better leader. The medical technology around Zain's room was "a reminder that our work in Microsoft transcended business, that it made life itself possible for a fragile young boy", he says.

At a company hackathon, empathy, coupled with new ideas, helped create technology that assists people with ALS and cerebral palsy to have greater independence. At home Zain, the music fan, has a Windows app that allows him to control his music. With Nadella at Microsoft's helm, there's been a groundswell of innovations globally where computing can be used in improving lives. He believes empathy will become even more valuable in the world "where the torrent of technology will disrupt status quo like never before". His passion is to put empathy at the centre of everything he pursues -- products and new markets, to employees, customers and partners.....

"I discovered that recognition of these universal predicaments leads to universal empathy."...

Is it possible for individuals and organizations to learn empathy? 
I fundamentally believe so. Empathy for me is not abstract. It is a concrete and important need for us at a human level: one of the things that's helped me grow as a human being. Would I have had as much empathy for people with disabilities if it were not for what happened to me with my children?

The yin and yang of organizational health | McKinsey & Company

The yin and yang of organizational health | McKinsey & Company | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it
Actions necessary to support longer-term corporate-performance objectives, on the one hand, and a rapid performance transformation, on the other, might seem at odds. But our research paints a different picture. When coupled with organizational health, long- and short-term performance can become interdependent and complementary—just as yin and yang in Chinese philosophy are inseparable, unable to exist without each other, despite their apparent opposition.

Simply put, healthy organizations are more likely to orient themselves toward the long term. And companies in the midst of a rapid performance transformation boost the odds of sustaining those efforts when they improve their health. The evidence for these propositions is substantial, and it underscores the fundamental link between organizational health and performance.

Can CEOs be un-disruptable?

Can CEOs be un-disruptable? | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it

Chief executives have traditionally sat at the intersection of the external environment and the internal organization, observing chaos and translating it into clear and actionable instructions. At this “nerve center” for essential information, our popular perception of the “un-disruptable” CEO is of a rigid, impenetrable figure, successfully staring down external adversity. Whether this image ever truly matched reality is debatable, but we know one thing for sure: it definitely no longer applies. To be un-disruptable today requires much more than steering companies through singular (if monumental) events—it demands leaders navigate constant turbulence, continuously adjusting their actions accordingly.

Did you know that there are 3 kinds of empathy? Yep.

  1. Cognitive
  2. Emotional
  3. Compassionate

 

This post explains all three. Plus the author shares recent research on the impact of empathy in business/leadership success. The author then gives 3 areas to focus on to build empathy:

  1. Be present
  2. Actively listen
  3. Put yourself in the other's shoes

 

The problem? These 3 areas are so general they are almost meaningless. So let's fix it. Want to build your empathy skills fast? Learning business storytelling skills is the most efficient + effective way to do so. Take action on these 3 storytelling practices:

  1. Start small and take your time. Share a personal experience with only 1 person present. Look into their eyes. Experience their reactions to your story. Experience what they like/what grabs them. Shift the story when you sense them drifting off. Learn what connects and what doesn't.
  2. Listen appreciatively. That's not listening actively, which includes paraphrasing what you heard. Don't interrupt. Just listen fully and delightedly without an agenda. Hard to do. Practice makes perfect. Clients who do this report entire worlds opening up to them. For more concrete steps, listen to my TEDx talk where I share exactly how to listen appreciatively.
  3. Listen to and share lots of stories. The more stories you listen to you stronger your empathy skills (backed by research). Sharing stories in return also builds empathy skills and deepens relationships. 'Gotta love that.

 

Try these and tell me how it goes. Questions? Comments? Send me a note.

Four Hard Truths about Self Leadership

Four Hard Truths about Self Leadership | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it

I can’t get what I need. My boss doesn’t understand me. My organization’s systems don’t work. I don’t have the resources I need. My job doesn’t take advantage of my strengths. No one appreciates me. My boss micromanages me. There’s no room for me to grow. They don’t understand how much I could be contributing if only they’d give me a chance.

If you’re human, I imagine you’ve thought or invoked one of these statements. I know I have.

Even though we may be able to justify these types of statements, they often reflect our own assumed constraints: beliefs that allow us to escape personal accountability and fall victim to circumstances or the actions of others. In the new Self Leadership program I co-created with Ken Blanchard and Laurence Hawkins, we teach that self leadership is about having the mindset and skillset to accept responsibility and take initiative.

While it is wonderful to learn how to ask for the direction and support you need to be successful in your role, it’s also important to remember that when something goes wrong, there’s no one else to blame.

The 4 Types of Innovation and the Problems They Solve

The 4 Types of Innovation and the Problems They Solve | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it
In researching my book, Mapping Innovation, I found that every innovation strategy fails eventually, because innovation is, at its core, about solving problems — and there are as many ways to innovate as there are types of problems to solve. There is no one “true” path to innovation.

Yet all too often, organizations act as if there is. They lock themselves into one type of strategy and say, “This is how we innovate.” It works for a while, but eventually it catches up with them. They find themselves locked into a set of solutions that don’t fit the problems they need to solve. Essentially, they become square-peg companies in a round-hole world and lose relevance.

We need to start treating innovation like other business disciplines — as a set of tools that are designed to accomplish specific objectives. Just as we wouldn’t rely on a single marketing tactic or a single source of financing for the entire life of an organization, we need to build up a portfolio of innovation strategies designed for specific tasks.

It was with this in mind that I created the Innovation Matrix to help leaders identify the right type of strategy to solve a problem, by asking two questions: How well can we define the problem? and How well can we define the skill domain(s) needed to solve it?

Research: Why 70 Percent of Employees Aren't Working to Their Full Potential Comes Down to 1 Simple Reason | leadership 3.0 | 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.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 28, 7:40 PM

This post by Kevin Cashman at Korn Ferry discusses the 8 pathways to leadership mastery. He makes the point early on that we personally tend to measure leadership mastery by external items: revenue, profit, new product breakthroughs, cost savings, and market share, etc. All good.

 

But the core question is: where do the external results come from? From internal factors within the leader that must be mastered.

 

To answer that question, research ensued and 3 internal competencies emerged:

  1. Courage and authenticity (to include vulnerability, openness, integrity)
  2. Influence (communicating in ways that inspires others)
  3. Enduring value creation serving multiple groups (self, team, org, family, society, world)

 

Building these 3 competencies means walking 8 paths. Four of these paths involve storytelling skills: 

  1. Personal mastery: courage, authenticity, awareness -- being courageous and vulnerable to share your authentic stories; using your own stories for personal awareness and development
  2. Story mastery: leading with inspiration -- by sharing your stories, and sharing the stories of others
  3. Purpose mastery: leading with why -- the best way to share the "why" is through a story. Sharing stories of others fulfilling org/personal purpose and their "why"
  4. Being mastery: leading with presence -- storytelling isn't the only element to building presence, but it is a key one. Modeling who you are through the stories you tell and the actions you take is powerful.

 

Read the post for the other 4 paths (all great info and insights!) and start putting a plan together for 2018. You'll be glad you did.

Team brainstorming seems like a good idea--at least, on paper. What usually happens is this: the company is experiencing a tough problem that no single person seems able to solve, so someone decides that more minds means more processing power, and before you know it you're all gathered in the conference room.

 

One or two people churn out bad idea after bad idea, while everyone else stares at the wall or multitasks. There are no major breakthroughs and most of you are irritated at the waste of time.

Empathy in Business
Evidence of the relevance of empathy to business is outlined in the article on the Mind Tools blog called, “What’s Empathy Got to do with It?”

There are numerous studies that link empathy to business results. They include studies that correlate empathy with increased sales, with the performance of the best managers of product development teams and with enhanced performance in an increasingly diverse workforce. A few of these studies can be viewed on the site of The Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations.

The fact that empathy is an important component of effective relationships has been proven: In studies by Dr Antonio Damasio (outlined in his book: “Descartes’ Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain.“), medical patients who had damage to part of the brain associated with empathy showed significant deficits in relationship skills, even though their reasoning and learning abilities remained intact.

I love this quote from this post!

"You can lead yourself. You can encourage, motivate, and help others. But you can't lead people. People are not horses or dogs. Leaders often think they are there to manage a business, which might be true, but they are really there to motivate, inspire, listen, and sell."

 

So what's the 1 ignored communication skill that will help build your team?

 

It's listening. It's listening without an agenda. It's listening deeply and appreciatively. Actually, using appreciative listening is one of the most powerful types of listening and the most underused. It's deliberately evoking staff stories and listening to staff stories.

 

Coaching clients and MBA students repeatedly say that gaining this narrative skill is the most impactful communication tool they've gained in their leadership and work life.
