Have a Clear Vision as a Leader to Enable Success

Have a Clear Vision as a Leader to Enable Success | Leadership | Scoop.it
In order for a school community to thrive, there needs to be a shared, clear vision that helps to focus the mission. This action plan will help assert forward movement and develop a closer and more effective thread in the stakeholders within the district.

But a leader alone can't establish or develop this vision, it must be a group effort that grows and matures over time. We simply can't just write it and let it languish; we must nurture it and adjust it as we move along our path to ensure that we are staying faithful to what works best for our kids, in each of our communities.

And since growth requires constant change, we need to be able to adjust the vision and mission to the time we are currently working in.

Why is Coaching a Popular Leadership style? 

Why is Coaching a Popular Leadership style?  | Leadership | Scoop.it

The concept of Coaching Leadership was created in the late 1960s by Paul Hersey and Kenneth Blanchard but it wasn’t until 2002 when psychologist and author Daniel Coleman documented it as one of his six leadership styles that it became popular.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 2, 2017 11:50 AM
Coaching Leadership is a leadership style where a leader is directly involved in the development of their people seeking to advance their personal and professional growth. A coaching leader helps people build on their strengths, recognise their weaknesses and improve their skills. Thus, a coaching leader helps employees align their personal goals and career aspirations and recognise how it all fits together.

Why effective leaders must manage up, down, and sideways 

Why effective leaders must manage up, down, and sideways  | Leadership | Scoop.it
Most of the leadership advice aimed at senior functional managers is how to build, align, energize, and guide a world-class team. This is a challenging task in its own right, but we all know it isn’t the whole story. Leaders, even those in the C-suite, must also extend their influence upward and horizontally.

Organization theory suggests that managing upward and sideways is good for both the company and the individual leader’s career: CEOs need the insights and pushback of trusted executives to help sharpen strategy. And complex modern organizations benefit when people engage with their peers across functional and business-unit boundaries to bring a range of perspectives and drive change and innovation.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 1, 2017 9:50 AM
While CEOs rely on functional leaders’ ability to build high-performance teams, much more needs to be done to help these leaders extend their influence upward into the C-suite and horizontally across the organization. Happily, our work suggests that not only business impact but also career success redounds to those CMOs (and, we believe, functional leaders of all stripes) who can increase their span of leadership influence upward and across functions.

How to Rectify a Serious Leadership Mistake

How to Rectify a Serious Leadership Mistake | Leadership | Scoop.it

We’re having a new kitchen fitted this week, and we discovered yesterday that an erroneous measurement on behalf of the designer means we’ll have to wait another three days for replacement units to arrive.

While not a life and death situation, it is rather irritating and puts the completion of our exciting project back further. Despite this, I do have some sympathy; the guy made a mistake – we’ve all done that, and it was a timely reminder of mistakes I’ve made in the past while in charge of a team.

There’s no getting away from the fact that, as a leader, your mistakes will be thrust into the spotlight for all to see. You can’t hide from them, nor should you attempt to apportion blame elsewhere. Any mistake you make is your own, and it’s up to you to sort it out.

Here’s how to rectify the worst of leadership mistakes.

How Can You Spot a Really Good Leader? They Do Any of These 7 Things Daily

How Can You Spot a Really Good Leader? They Do Any of These 7 Things Daily | Leadership | Scoop.it

Can you imagine working for someone in a high-level leadership role, perhaps a CEO, and suddenly it dawns on you: This person isn't leadership caliber.

Your next thought may be, How in the world did he (or she) make it this far up the ladder?

It's a fair question. People are promoted into leadership roles every day who have no business belonging there.

Sometimes it's political; other times it's the easier choice--promote from within and avoid the high cost of recruitment--but a bad choice, nonetheless.

The biggest challenge leaders face is performing to the set standards of the best in the business. This means raising the bar really high--as the ten hugely successful CEOs I wrote about recently have done.

In the end, you'll find the leadership journey is predicated on two things that drive success: Results and relationships. You can't have results at the expense of people. And serving your tribe well without getting results is merely putting lipstick on a pig.

www.inc.com provide us with some useful ideas here about what 'really good' leaders to at work.  I've been thinking about the strategies offered; 1. giving feedback 2. regular team planning sessions 3. conducting stay interviews 4. recognition & appreciation 5. freedom to make decisions 6. allowing people to take on new responsibilities 7. open-door policy.  All of these rely on the fundamentally critical technical skill of being able to give and receive feedback and the heart-connected qualities that allow people to thrive because you want them to do their best.  For me, really good leaders empower people to succeed.  Allowing freedom is great, but to do this without building trust and sound relationships first, could be an action taken too soon. Interesting topic!
