Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 10, 1:50 PM

I love the research shared in this organization that makes the point about the need for agile organizations.

 

Becoming an agile organization is critical to meet the push for digital transformation that is going on today and in the future.

 

I particularly like the comparison chart between today's org common org model, and the future model of an agile company.

 

Where are you at, and where are you headed with this fundamental shift in how business gets done?

How to Lead Cynics

How to Lead Cynics | New Leadership | Scoop.it

It’s certainly not my place or my intention to impugn the honesty and ethics of any single business leader, or any professional for that matter. But there is clearly a lot of cynicism out there these days. So if you’re not good at leading cynical people, chances are you’re not good at leading a lot of the people you’re supposed to be leading.

3 Expert Tips on Succeeding as a New Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When I first took on a leadership role, I thought the key to success was delegation. As a new leader, I wanted to show that I trusted my team. So I spent the majority of my time assigning tasks and then allowing my employees to work autonomously.

The Caring Leader

The Caring Leader | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Hard-core individualists who doubt leaders’ need for supportive teams should consider the famous study by Harvard Business School professors Boris Groysberg, Ashish Nanda, and Nitin Nohira. They studied more than 1,000 “rock star” analysts — securities analysts named by Institutional Investor magazine as among the best in their industry over a period of eight years, from 1988 to 1996. They found that when stars switched firms, their job performance fell and they rarely reached the heights of their previous success. The causes of this performance plunge are multifaceted. But the authors concluded that losing the teamwork and relationships at the places where the analysts became stars were important contributing factors.

If your employees aren't learning, you're not leading

If your employees aren't learning, you're not leading | New Leadership | Scoop.it

There's a strong positive relationship between how much people learn on the job and how much they love their job. Employees who score high on survey questions like "I will have to learn new skills to achieve my assigned goals for this year" have higher scores on questions such as:

"I consider myself a high performer""The work I do makes a difference in people's lives""I recommend this company to others as a great place for people to work""I recommend my boss to others as a great person to work for."

Unfortunately, we know from the study "Are SMART Goals Dumb?" that only 42% of workers say they are always or frequently learning on the job, while another 39% percent say they are never or rarely learning.

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...
