Four Words For Leaders to Remove From Their Voc... | Leadership | Scoop.it
We spend the early parts of our lives adding to our vocabulary. Teachers and parents want us to learn new words. And research shows that vocabulary is a good predictor of success. And yet I am asking you to take four words from your vocabulary.

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes | Leadership | Scoop.it
The 21st century has brought much in the way of turmoil and change to the world of business. As a consequence, ways of doing business that were once universally accepted now seem outdated and inflexible in an age where knowledge drives economies and socially responsible corporate attitudes influence stakeholders and shareholders alike. With such changes have come new priorities and responsibilities and it is in this environment that the theory of servant leadership has flourished as a management style for the redefined business world of today, one that can serve as a cornerstone for organisations wishing to build corporate structures based on stewardship, empowerment and trust.

(From the article) Servant leadership will benefit organisations dependent on knowledge workers and in environments where high levels of creativity and innovation are the norm. Knowledge workers in particular require a sense of autonomy in order to function at their best and it is the responsibility of the servant leader to create this workplace freedom for them.

Coercive probably does not fit under any circumstances and command wears out pretty quickly. The others would be situational. I experienced coercive and command more in schools than the other four.

Your Community is an Ecosystem – Embrace It | Leadership | Scoop.it
If you were to look at the definition of an ecosystem, you may find something along the lines of this: An ecosystem is a community of living organisms (plants, animals and microbes) in conjunction with the nonliving components of their environment (things like air, water and mineral soil), interacting as a system.

The New Role Of Leaders

The New Role Of Leaders | Leadership | Scoop.it
The role of leadership has changed. It is no longer enough to merely plan and direct action, today we must inspire and empower belief.Strategy in the 21st century has become less directed and more emergent. Even the military relies less on plans and more on commander’s intent. Corporate chieftains are following suit, experimenting with management structures such as holocracy. Yet we need to do more than simply change policies and practices, leadership itself must be redefined.
Via Kenneth Mikkelsen

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 22, 2014 10:31 AM

It is a slow process to change and one of the reasons may be that we still leadership as a top down process i.e. the use of terms like corporate chieftains.

 

One way to accelerate the process might be in school where children learn that there are other ways to lead. Holocracies might mean that the hierarchy is fluid and constantly shifting. Schools remain very rigid in their hierarchical structures and are managed as opposed to involving the complex interchange of leading-managing.

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, May 22, 2014 1:14 PM

Absolutely agree but how many leaders are willing to inspire and empower?  Do you understand what this takes?

"The study of our leadership too often becomes the study of our barriers: the unrealistic demands, the power politics, the poor treatment and irrationality, the hierarchy and the intractable, complex, silted-in and siloed bureaucracies, not to mention the failures of top leadership to create meaningful, strategic, engaged change. Of course, we assume we’re not contributors to all that."

Corporate Reputations Hit Highest Levels Since the Great Recession | Nielsen

Corporate Reputations Hit Highest Levels Since the Great Recession | Nielsen | Leadership | Scoop.it
While a strong brand holds a company’s promise to customers, a company’s reputation gives it credibility and the license to operate. And for consumers, that reputation plays a strong role in guiding their decisions to buy—or not buy—a company’s products. In the U.S., that role is growing, as Americans are steadily learning more about companies before they do business with them.According to the 2014 Harris Poll Reputation Quotient™ (RQ™) report, 56 percent of Americans actively investigate corporate behavior before they open their wallets. That figure is climbing, as this year’s figure is up 6 percent from 2012. And these information seekers aren’t just learning for their own benefit. This group actively shares what it learns and seeks to influence others in the process.Consumer sentiment about the myriad of dimensions that make up corporate reputation isn’t an easy thing to gauge, but it’s certainly something for all companies to be aware of—and influence. But it’s not simply enough to know what people think about a company or brand. After all, if consumers are turned off by a particular company, they’re certainly not going to buy its products. The good news, however, is that Americans view corporate America more positively today than they have in recent history....

If you compare to a day at work like being in a pro football game, and you are the coach.  Is the successful coach giving everything he or she has to those who are on the field?  Are they focused, passionate, and all there throughout the entire game?

 

Remember distractions are the enemy of focus.  All we can do is do our best to be there, because every day is game day, and every day matters.
