Supported by their community and the power of decentralized network, the new leaders navigate a world where curiosity, vision and adaptation are more necessary than convictions and authority.

Efficienarta's insight:

Two of the points in this article particularly accord with my Points of view based on experience working with a spectrum of public and private sector enterprises:


"Supported by their community and the power of decentralized network, they navigate a world where curiosity, vision and adaptation are more necessary than convictions and authority." and the Ralph Nader quote "The function of leadership is to create more leaders, not more followers.

Thoughtful article every MBA should read and fully digest. The only way to remain powerful, is to empower the people you are tasked to lead. This has always been true. Now it's crucial.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 1, 2014 6:30 PM

Leadership does have to change. What is interesting is that today, as I looked for dissertation materials on leadership, this idea of a leadership crisis is not new, Many authors and thinkers complained of the same thing in times past. The challenge might be the pace of change is so rapid it presents new challenges.

Jerry Busone's curator insight, February 24, 2014 10:36 AM

While I don't agree with the entire thought pattern here I do agree that Leaders reflect whats going on in our society. Leadership is going through one of its many changes over centuries of time. What once worked...won't tomorrow. Stay tuned....

How to develop the skills of innovative leaders

How to develop the skills of innovative leaders | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
Creating an innovative mindset takes work and may require some retraining, but anyone can innovate if they develop these core competencies:
1. Seek out innovative environments

Our environment plays a major part in developing our innovative characteristics. We can’t change the circumstances of our upbringing, but we do have a choice in the kinds of people with whom we associate and surround ourselves.
We tend to take on the same characteristics as the people we spend the most time with, so be picky! It’s fine to spend time with school chums and old acquaintances, but we need to challenge ourselves to develop new friends who will truly nourish our desire to be the person we want to be.
Likewise, spend time with colleagues who possess high levels of innovative traits.
Tip: Create a learning environment or community that generates new knowledge and perspectives. This type of networking will expose you to different perspectives from individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences.
2. Observe and be curious

Innovative leaders score high in curiosity. They desire to know more and take the initiative to learn new information. They keep their skills and knowledge current to give them a competitive edge.
Innovative leaders are mentally tough because they believe they will prevail in their circumstances, rather than hope their circumstances will change. If an obstacle pops up, they react with curiosity as they investigate the endless possibilities before them.

Jillian Schaibly's curator insight, July 28, 2017 9:47 PM
This article talks about encouraging staff to do better. It talks about the staff of Uber, but the concept can be translated into education as well. Administrators need to encourage staff to do their best. If the administrator is up beat, sets goals and shows staff there best, usually people will jump on the wagon.

How I Discovered The Values That Led Me To Leadership Success 

How I Discovered The Values That Led Me To Leadership Success  | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
There were 7 “principles”:

Integrity
Commitment
Dependability
Teamwork
Responsiveness
Gratitude
Community
It was like a gift from heaven. I thought “My goodness, there were several that had been parked in my brain, ready for something like this to put it all in context. Wow! This is it.” I decided that I’d try to adopt them lock, stock and barrel for our use, since I didn’t think there were copyright problems with any of those words, and quickly got our CEO’s approval.

The marketing department created a little “gift” for each employee that represented each of the values – things like coffee mugs, mouse pads, and wristbands. We wanted to introduce them to everyone one at a time, over seven weeks, and reinforce them with the gift.

We went ahead with purchasing all the gifts (and it was a lot of stuff, filling up several of our closets in our corporate office in NY) and right around the time we were going to launch the first value, I got a phone call from my boss.

“Hold up, change in plan”

“What?! We’re ready to go here!”

Information literacy
A lack of information literacy may be threatening schools, McLeod said. Information literacy, specifically the ability to discern credible sources from unreliable ones, is of great importance in light of misinformation circulating on the internet. “[The] new information landscape has a number of characteristics that are quite different from our old ink-on-paper, printed-book world,” McLeod said. In this new landscape, some schools are struggling to teach students what they need to know about vetting sources, he added.
McLeod discussed this topic in his blog post, “How school leaders can combat ‘filter bubbles’ and ‘fake news’,” which was a winner of last month’s Editor's Choice Content Award.
In the post, McLeod mentions a study from Stanford University that revealed information illiteracy among students. According to this data, graduates are at risk of being easily deceived by faulty or unreliable information sources. McLeod pointed out that a school faculty’s ability to discern source credibility -- hopefully with the exception of trained librarian staff -- is likewise highly variable.

Digital success requires a digital culture 

Digital success requires a digital culture  | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
In a digital world, one of the biggest risks is not taking risks.
This is not easy for incumbent companies to achieve. In fact, our clients tell us that the main bottleneck in digital transformations is the lack of a strong and common culture. A quarter of the companies we polled report that their biggest challenge is a culture averse to risk and experimentation, while another 20% find a lack of a common understanding of the company culture is a major impediment to digital success.

Three steps to overcoming cultural barriers

So how do you get your culture in line with your digital strategy? We tested multiple cultural elements in our study, and found that prioritizing the following three areas has the biggest impact on easing the bottlenecks.

Support from the top: It’s now widely understood that a digital transformation needs active CEO support throughout the journey. This top-down support, however, has to go beyond the chief executive. Companies should start by putting a chief digital officer in charge of the full digital agenda. Truly changing culture, moreover, requires that support for a digital reinvention flow through the management hierarchy right down to every front-line employee, so the full organizational pyramid is tuned towards digital. All leaders need to shift their style from top-down decision-maker to coach.

Four Traits That Define Great Leaders

Four Traits That Define Great Leaders | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
“Any CEO, no matter how illustrious, no matter how successful, when you look back in hindsight, has come into the role not prepared. That’s one thing we’ve learned: We’ve yet to find a board that feels that this individual is a slam dunk. It’s a tough decision, deciding who will get the role. So they look imperfect getting into the role; they look imperfect for much of the role; very few aspects of this big public stereotype prove to matter. If you look at the publicly-available bios of Fortune 500 CEOs, if you didn’t go to the right preschool, let alone the right university, you’re doomed to failure.“The stereotypical, larger-than-life, charismatic CEO who never makes mistakes … only exists in urban legends.””

6 ways to foster leadership in your team

6 ways to foster leadership in your team | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
Be a shepherd. You know how things get done. Whether your company is loosely organized or big on formal processes, you have learned how to navigate the steps necessary to get the resources you need, achieve buy-in from stakeholders and make things happen. As a leader, the next step is to guide others through those secret and not-so-secret moves required for success. Relationships are critical to great leadership, so help set others on a similar path.
Be a mentor. As a manager, sometimes it can be all-consuming just making sure the day-to-day tasks get done. It can be tempting to focus any remaining energy on the underachievers, making sure they get the skills and motivation they need to get up to speed. Inspiring others to become great leaders, however, requires that we spend time mentoring the rising stars on the team – making sure they have the tools they need to grow and achieve.
Be an investor. We may be lured into spending training dollars, development days and our precious attention on minimum skills and basic knowledge. Instead, consider who on your team could benefit from executive coaching, leadership conferences or in-house opportunity. Investing your own and the company’s time on the best and brightest can be as simple as allowing them to work with the bigger players in your organization -- high-profile projects, committees or even presentations you might otherwise do yourself. Invest in your employees' futures and watch them grow.
