James Saliba's insight:

This is so true.  Most people leave an organization because of how a manager handles their area, not because of a conflict with the company.

 

So many people become managers without any additional help or training.

What Bothers Us Most About Our Leaders

What Bothers Us Most About Our Leaders | Leadership | Scoop.it
Leaders have unique qualities that don’t always rub people the right way. This can unknowingly create distractions and misunderstandings that lead to a dysfunctional workplace. Unless employees learn to adapt, the same character traits that make effective leaders will begin to wear on them and grow tiresome. Though a leader’s responsibility is to guide the organization in the right direction and sustain profitable growth – inspiring the success, significance and capabilities of their employees along the way -- they must also become more self-aware of how their approach and style may be standing in the way of their employees realizing their full potential. As one Fortune 400 leader recently told me, “My intensity and sense of urgency can get annoying and I need to be more mindful of the potential repercussions on employee morale and the burden it places on my teams and the corporate culture.” Whether you’re evolving into a leadership role or just want to evolve your thinking about how to engage most effectively with your employees, be aware of these eight things that bother employees most about their leaders:

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction | Leadership | Scoop.it
In a workplace infused with top down, hierarchical, departmental silos, change management is the new requirement for leadership success. With a market comprised of fickle consumers and workplaces brimming with employee identity crises, leadership success requires more patience, poise, and time-to-think – and the ability to seamlessly connect the dots of opportunity. The marketplace requirements to compete are evolving so quickly that leadership is struggling to stay ahead of the course; unsuccessful efforts to be proactive and sustain organizational readiness will come at an extremely high cost. As such, the demand for leadership that is willing and capable of tackling change management head-on – already in short supply – is at a premium. Leadership in the 21st century not only requires the ability to continuously manage crisis and change – but also the circular vision to see around, beneath and beyond the obvious in order to anticipate the unexpected before circumstances force your hand. As you embark upon your change management journey, here are ten things that will challenge your capabilities as a change agent and potentially become defining moments along your leadership success path.
