Here’s Google’s Holy Grail for Measuring Leadership Skill (How Do You Stack Up?) - Daniel Coyle

 
Few groups on the planet are more obsessed at unearthing the secrets of cultural success than Google. They use their massive analytical muscle to continually study thousands of their teams to see what works best, what doesn’t, and how to improve.  What’s really useful, however, is Google’s willingness to let outsiders peek inside their findings.
So here’s … Continue reading "Here’s Google’s Holy Grail for Measuring Leadership Skill (How Do You Stack Up?)"

Jim Collins On The ‘Beautiful, Giant Question’ That Launched His Career

Jim Collins On The ‘Beautiful, Giant Question’ That Launched His Career | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
“How do you make society both more productive and more humane at the same time?” Because if you think about it, it’s a beautiful, giant question. I think that the grandeur of that question and the idea that, “Okay, then you’re running a company,” or, “You’re running a non-profit,” or…you’re doing what sort of fits into that. But the idea of a, “how do you make things both more productive and more humane at the same time,” is one of those human questions.

The Best Managers Do These 6 Key Things Differently

The Best Managers Do These 6 Key Things Differently | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Effectively managing others is both a science and an art, just like programming or playing an instrument. Based on personality and past experiences, some people tend to naturally be stronger at leading and inspiring others. That being said, anybody can learn how to be an effective manager if given the right training.

 

What's nice about the world we live in today is that you don't have to reinvent the wheel to be a great leader. Countless studies have been poured into determining what makes for a good manager.

 

Whether you've always seen yourself as a natural leader or are scared in front of others, here are six science-backed tactics that are universally effective.

Want to Build a High-Performing Team? Science Says Focus on These 3 Things | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Many leaders believe a team is only as strong as its weakest link. Thus many organizations spend a lot of time working to attract the best talent, while performance-managing those that aren't operating at the standard they would like.

 

But building a world-class team isn't about just getting the right people on the bus. It's about making sure you have a game plan in place that makes everyone on your team operate at a higher level.

 

So if you want to build a team that consistently overflows with top performers, build a team philosophy and culture designed to enable everyone who is part of it to excel.

A number of themes have persistently cropped up in leadership literature over the last two decades. The difficulty of spurring hearts-and-minds engagement in a high-pressure environment. The need to distinguish leadership from celebrity. The challenge of building cohesive teams while rewarding exceptional performance. And the integration of neuroscientific research into our understanding of group behavior.

Research: Why 70 Percent of Employees Aren't Working to Their Full Potential Comes Down to 1 Simple Reason

Research: Why 70 Percent of Employees Aren't Working to Their Full Potential Comes Down to 1 Simple Reason | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
 
 

According to Gallup research, an astounding 70 percent of U.S. employees are not showing up to work fully committed to deliver their best performance. Adding insult to injury, 52 percent of those workers are basically sleepwalking through their day, and 18 percent of them are busy acting out their unhappiness.

 

So what gives? Gallup has been preaching for two decades that in order to reverse this crisis, great managers (like Google's own) that understand human nature and how to motivate and inspire diverging needs of people, need to be put into management roles at every level of the organization.

 

When a company raises employee engagement levels across every business unit through great management of people, it leads to higher profitability, productivity, and lower turnover.

There's a valid point to the research I do wonder though how Gallup has been at this for 30 years+ and yet you would think by reading articles like this that there's been no improvement in things like employee engagement despite all their research they are telling the same story that most people are disengaged from their work which is the reality in some organisations yet definitely not all

Five Ways To Activate Leadership Potential In Your People

Five Ways To Activate Leadership Potential In Your People | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

As leaders, most of us would like to imagine that we have all the answers. But we’re constantly faced with new and disruptive challenges that we have no idea how to solve. As we turn to our teams to help us develop innovative solutions, there’s nothing more disappointing than seeing them come back to you with mediocre ideas and lackluster execution.

 

It’s not that your team is wrong. It’s just that they are stuck in the loop of status quo. So, as a leader, you crave new talent with new ideas to drive your team forward. The good news is that the problem may not be that your team doesn’t have the ability to step up to the shifting challenges and expectations of leadership. Instead, you may just need to find a new way to unleash the leadership promise they already have. This means bringing the untapped potential of individuals and teams to the surface, activating it and accelerating development through opportunities and exposure.

 

Here are some of the ways you might be overlooking potential on your team:

5 Strategies for Team Brainstorming to Use in Your Next Meeting

5 Strategies for Team Brainstorming to Use in Your Next Meeting | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Team brainstorming seems like a good idea--at least, on paper. What usually happens is this: the company is experiencing a tough problem that no single person seems able to solve, so someone decides that more minds means more processing power, and before you know it you're all gathered in the conference room.

 

One or two people churn out bad idea after bad idea, while everyone else stares at the wall or multitasks. There are no major breakthroughs and most of you are irritated at the waste of time.

 

Sound familiar? Why is this such a problem?
