Today’s Best Leaders Are Reflective and Vulnerable

Today’s Best Leaders Are Reflective and Vulnerable | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
Lagging performance is among the most glaring indications something is awry in an organization. Then there are the quieter, less splashy but still foreboding signals: a culture of distrust, the uncomfortable undiscussables, staff disengagement, disorganization — all of which indicate a disconnect that could cost a business tremendously if not addressed.
 

When confronted with a problem, or better yet, before it becomes a problem, leadership consultants Bob Anderson and Bill Adams recommend organizational leaders first turn inward to drive lasting change.

Slightly confusingly written article, but still worth a read!  We develop leaders to be comfortable with their own vulnerability and it shifts the culture of the organisation faster than anything else I've seen across 30 years of corporate life!

Leadership Training for Entrepreneurs

Leadership Training for Entrepreneurs | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
In stark contrast to the corporate world — where people in large companies are promoted into leadership roles only after working their way up through the ranks — leadership development in the startup arena often happens overnight or even by accident.
Entrepreneurs often have to go without management training, development coaching or a course called “CEO 101.” They have to figure out out how to be a leader on the fly.
And because teaching yourself to lead is no easy feat, especially when you’re managing a rapidly expanding company, you may well fail. That’s part of the reason 36 percent of new businesses fold after just two years and 90 percent of technology startups simply don’t make it.

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, December 6, 2015 7:21 AM

I appreciate the message of this post.  Even solopreneur's should look at some external leadership training, to help with decisions if nothing else. Having an external, objective coach can be a life saver.

Where are the knowledge flows in your organisation? Are they comprehensive and open to all?

donhornsby's curator insight, December 2, 2015 7:57 AM

(From the article): Leaders tend to place a disproportionate emphasis on tools like training materials or knowledge portals partly because they are easier to manage and control. It is less clear how to manage amorphous, interactive learning processes; you can’t simply force coworkers to interact and share experiences. However, more often than not, leaders simply need to remove obstacles that discourage people from seeking or sharing knowledge and learning vicariously. They can create a structure that allows these interactions to take place organically by focusing on three steps: (see article for the three steps)

6 Powerful Ways To Thank Your Team For Being Awesome

6 Powerful Ways To Thank Your Team For Being Awesome | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

It sounds like common sense to say thank you to those who work for you and work with you, but it in reality this common sense wisdom is not practiced as much as it should be.


Some people say they don't have time or can't afford to show appreciation; others may have good intentions but just never think of it in the moment.


But if you think of it in terms of payoff--giving you and your organization more stability and less turnover (and, as a result, greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness)--it's about investing in an important relationship.

Felicity Hodkinson's curator insight, November 5, 2015 6:28 AM

How deeply do you listen? This article highlights the importance, but it is the 4 levels of listening from Otto Scharmer & Katrin Kaufer's book Theory U: From Ego system to Eco system that I find most helpful:

1. Downloading (habitual): projecting old judgments. Selectively hearing what re-enforces what you know.

2 Factual: directing the beam of observation onto the world

around us. Open Mind. Suspending judgement.

3. Empathic: adopting the other person’s perspective and

therefore seeing ourselves through the eyes of the other. Open Heart. Suspending beliefs.

4. Generative: listening from the whole and the emerging

new. Allowing yourself to be changed by what you hear. Open Will. 

Which types of listening do you predominantly use?

(From the article): People want leaders who are honest and realistic. However, they are also attracted to leaders who are upbeat and positive.


Leaders who demonstrate an ability to look on the brighter side of things, and who show resilience after a failure are able to keep their teams upbeat and motivated as well. When a good leader does have something to complain about, they don’t vent to their team members.

Why Do We Resist Change?

Why Do We Resist Change? | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
Because we’re deluded!

We all delude ourselves about our achievements, our status, and our contributions. We

Overestimate our contribution to a project;
Have an elevated opinion of our professional skills and standing among our peers;
Exaggerate our project’s impact on profitability by discounting real and hidden costs.
Many of our delusions come from our association with success, not failure. We get positive reinforcement from our successes and we think they are predictive of a great future.
