The Business Case for the Social CEO

The Business Case for the Social CEO | Leadership@rich_boss | Scoop.it

The rate of return on assets of US firms is only one quarter of what it was in 1965. Business organizations are fewer and less able to seize the economic benefits of their actions. In a technology-enabled world in which innovation is key, it’s with great heartbreak that only 11 percent of employees are passionate about their work. It is also a major performance problem for businesses that depend on employee passion for imagination and innovation.

A number of other thought leaders shared their perspectives at the Global Peter Drucker Forum 2013 in Vienna, Austria[i]:

The Discipline of Listening

The Discipline of Listening | Leadership@rich_boss | Scoop.it

Knowledge of corporate leaders' 360-degree feedback indicates that one out of four of them has a listening deficit—the effects of which can paralyze cross-unit collaboration, sink careers, and if it's the CEO with the deficit, derail the company. But this doesn't have to be the case.

The Risk of Being Too Nice in Business

Business Owners, especially those who have not been through the wringer a few times, try to please everyone, in the hope that this will preserve relationships, and retain clients and employees.

This excellent article, drives home the risks of being too nice in business, and it stresses the importance of managing expectations and protecting your time.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Leadership@rich_boss | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

What If Zuckerberg Stepped Down as Facebook CEO?

What If Zuckerberg Stepped Down as Facebook CEO? | Leadership@rich_boss | Scoop.it

Shark Week may be over — but for Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg, the sharks are just starting to circle.

 

Facebook stock, continuing its disastrous slide, is now worth half of its price at IPO. Peter Thiel, Facebook’s first major investor, dumped nearly all of his stake in the social network for $400 million. Wall Street grumbling has led USA Today, the Los Angeles Times and NBC News to run stories in the last few days all asking the same question: is Zuckerberg’s job secure?

 

Monday’s Mashable poll asking if the founder should step aside has, at time of writing, 2,600 respondents saying he should go. Just under 2,800 support Zuckerberg, with 800 on the fence. That’s a victory of sorts for him, but not exactly a ringing endorsement.

 

Let’s be clear: Zuck isn’t in any immediate danger of being booted. The terms of the IPO saw to that. He controls 57% of the voting shares in the company. The movement against him, if you can call it that, has no real leadership. His most obvious internal replacement, COO Sheryl Sandberg, is a longtime ally.

 

No, the only person who could make Zuckerberg step aside for a different role, or leave the company altogether, is Zuck himself. And why would he ever want to do that?

 

Well, because every successful founder has to concede at some point that the company has outgrown their abilities to manage it. Because Zuck is 28 and has no prior experience at the helm of a company this large (3,500 employees and growing fast).

23 Killer Business Lessons from Shark Tank

23 Killer Business Lessons from Shark Tank | Leadership@rich_boss | Scoop.it

Business growth, especially in small businesses, is often hampered by lack of capital, and despite the reluctance of small business owners to bow down to the demands of investors and  deal with the accountability that comes with having external investors, often there is little choice but to do so.

 

In such situations, it pays to be very aware of what you will be dealing with, and make sure that you don't make the types of mistakes, which will see investors run a mile from the opportunity you are trying to pitch for funding.

 

This good article, drawing lessons from a popular television program, provides a great guide to what to expect and how to play the game of raising capital from investors.
