The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers

The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Even as recently as twenty or thirty years ago, the people with influence were relatively easy to spot: the President or Prime Minister of a nation, religious leaders, CEOs, and probably your parents.


Their influence was based on a combination of position, experience, knowledge, wealth – and most importantly control of the channels of communication to the “people,” for to have power influence must be spread.


No longer – the influence landscape has already shifted dramatically and will continue to evolve.

Wie heeft de macht in deze groeiende netwerksamenleving? Zij die de meeste invloed uitoefenen, maar zijn dat nog dezelfde die dat vanuit hun functie of geboorterecht altijd gehad hebben?

Alex Watson's curator insight, October 18, 2013 11:39 AM

Interesting read.

Tom Hood's curator insight, October 19, 2013 11:29 AM

Great visual of the modern leader and to quote Jim Collins,m"we are moving from organizations well managed to networks well led." Essentially, the leaders of today will be more like association executives than command and control CEOs of the past. What do you think about this?

Are you a high performing leadership team? ….. ten questions to ask yourselves! - Metalogue

Are you a high performing leadership team? ….. ten questions to ask yourselves! - Metalogue | New Leadership | Scoop.it
In recent years, I’ve noticed that enquiries for team development and coaching, invariably start with the statement: “we (or they) need to be a high performing team.” On face value, this strikes me as a reasonable request. However, I’ve learnt that this statement covers a whole range of ills, dysfunctionalities and possibilities. It gets used as a proxy for ‘help us sort out our problems…without risking exploring what these might be’.

In truth, there are no off-the-shelf answers to what constitutes high performance for a leadership team. Every team needs to work it out for themselves. However, we believe that there are important questions that a leadership team needs to ask itself which can act as a starting point of a conversation or development process.

Below are ten questions we think it is important for every leadership team to ask itself:

Keeping Your Strategy Meetings Focused on the Long Term

Keeping Your Strategy Meetings Focused on the Long Term | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Mauricio knew that he must carve out time for strategic conversations with his leadership team, but during a one-on-one coaching session he told me he was puzzled. When he had suggested to his leadership team that they have these conversations, people had nodded their heads and said they’d raise strategic agenda items. Yet their meetings continued to focus on the day-to-day numbers, operational processes, and immediate crises.

Unfortunately, this scenario is common for many leadership teams — when facing immediate concerns, it’s difficult to remain strategic. Senior executives need to balance the long- and short-term demands of their businesses, and meetings need to mirror this balance. But they rarely do when executives don’t realize the pitfalls of meetings that conflate strategy and operations.

David Hain's curator insight, January 9, 4:59 AM

I come across this scenario all the time. Short term stuff gets complained about, but top teams keep on doing it. Strategy is longed for, but rarely happens because of the previous scenario. Maybe people just play to what they're good at and avoid the stuff (without easy answers) in the 'too difficult' box? Or maybe they haven't left operational management behind. Whatever, it creates a vicious cycle...

Are You Overusing These 3 Leadership Habits? A Coach’s Perspective | New Leadership | Scoop.it

(Empathic Leadership) Empathy Is An Essential Leadership Skill -- And There's Nothing Soft About It

(Empathic Leadership) Empathy Is An Essential Leadership Skill -- And There's Nothing Soft About It | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I get tired of hearing about “soft skills,” even when it’s acknowledged they are important. No less a hard-muscled body than the U.S. Army, in its Army Field Manual on Leader Development (one of the best resource on leadership I’ve ever seen) insists repeatedly that empathy is essential for competent leadership.

 

Why?  Empathy enables you to know if the people you’re trying to reach are actually reached.  It allows you to predict the effect your decisions and actions will have on core audiences and strategize accordingly.  Without empathy, you can’t build a team or nurture a new generation of leaders.  You will not inspire followers or elicit loyalty. Empathy is essential in negotiations and sales:  it allows you to know your target’s desires and what risks they are or aren’t willing to take.

The Strength of Vulnerable Leaders

The Strength of Vulnerable Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In business, vulnerability is generally seen as weakness. Recent headlines scream for business to avoid vulnerability or suffer the consequences: “30% of Auto Parts Retailers’ Business Is Vulnerable to Amazon,” “Five Industries Most Vulnerable to Digital Disruption,” “Apple Users Are Also Vulnerable to WannaCry-Type Attacks.” Having a strategy or a model or a position that is susceptible to attack is the last thing investors, executives, and employees want. By the same token, personal vulnerability is considered a liability for leaders. Conventional wisdom holds that it is difficult to lead or negotiate or make demands from a position of perceived weakness.

But it turns out that the popular perception of vulnerability is a myth — one that keeps leaders from being effective. In fact, there are plenty of reasons to believe that vulnerability can be an asset for leaders, as Emma Seppala argued in this 2014 Harvard Business Review article. Why? Vulnerable leaders inspire, are more authentic, and build bonds that lead to increased performance.

Increasing your leadership potential

Increasing your leadership potential | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Leadership is a behavior, not a position or a title. While some executives exhibit remarkable leadership behaviors, others simply become good managers, never fully realizing their capacity for leadership. The latter will likely have the skill and determination to operate a program and possibly even oversee an organization. It is the former, however, who will successfully guide an organization toward unlocking its true potential.
