(From the article): But those are not enough. While leaders tomorrow will need these capacities to adapt to a turbulent world, the fundamentals of leadership will not change. The reason: leadership relies on mobilizing human skills. Always has. Always will.

Beyond process

Beyond process | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Over the past several decades, the business world has relentlessly pursued efficiency-driven business process reengineering, seeking to integrate, standardize, and automate tasks in ways that can reduce costs, increase speed, and deliver more predictable outcomes. As the landscape shifts, perhaps it’s time for organizations to expand their focus beyond business process reengineering to pursue business practice redesign, helping frontline workgroups to learn faster and accelerate performance improvement, especially in environments that are shaped by increasing uncertainty and unexpected events. The perspective we outline here goes beyond the growing work done on high-performing teams and agile practices by focusing specifically on the practices necessary to accelerate performance improvement over time.

With virtually nothing left to cut, do businesses need to switch from redesigning business processes to redeveloping the business culture? The argument too do so is pretty compelling. The challenges of doing so are numerous and difficult!

The three stages of leadership | London Business School | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
How do we promote our leaders? How do we decide that a person is ready to take on a role with a brand new remit and unfamiliar responsibilities? We do it trusting that a person will succeed, based on often nothing more than a hunch. “But wait!” I hear you cry. “People are promoted based on their success in their current role. It’s how it works everywhere.” This is true. People are promoted to the next level based on their previous performance. But does this make sense?

Five Workplace Issues We’ll Be Talking About In 2018

Five Workplace Issues We’ll Be Talking About In 2018 | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

We thought 2016 was a year of turning points. But we had no idea how 2017 would shape up to hold far more moments that affected the workplace, from the current administration’s changing positions on labor policy issues, to whistleblowers sounding the alarm on sexism, racism, and other unfair practices, to the shifting demographics of the workforce itself with the first members of gen Z making their entry into full-time employment.

 

Here is a look at some of the more significant trends that will continue to dominate the conversation around work in 2018.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 21, 2017 2:10 PM
We should have been talking about the first two all along, unequal pay and workplace harrassment. The latter is all about power and bullying.

The last one, AI in the workplace, is something that needs to be talked about. It is a greater challenge in job loss and a need to rethink what that means for the future. Jobs are leaving, not only because of tax incentives, but because humans can be replaced. Is that what we want?

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.

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.

Generation Z enters the workforce

Generation Z enters the workforce | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
With a new generation poised to enter the workforce, organizations are simultaneously forced to combat two converging trends. First, Generation Z (Gen Z), consisting of those born after 1995, is entering the workforce. While Gen Z is anticipated to bring an unprecedented level of technology skills to the workforce, they also express apprehensions about their interpersonal communication skills. Throughout the article we will be following a prototypical Gen Z member, Emily, to illustrate the shifting experiences and expectations Gen Z brings to the workplace. (See sidebar: Meet Emily, a prototypical Generation Z member).

Second, emerging technologies, particularly automation, are expected to further disrupt the nature of the entry-level roles that this generation is poised to fill. Complicating this dynamic is the ambiguity surrounding this technical shift, in addition to the inherent uncertainty involved in predicting how today’s teenagers will behave in 10 years.

Given these new realities, this article explores how organizations can redesign entry-level jobs in a way that can both attract and engage Gen Z, while ensuring that the entry-level job continues to serve as the necessary training ground for incoming professionals. This will be essential for organizations seeking to generate a pipeline of future talent to help meet the organization’s evolving needs.

We’ve been structuring brainstorm sessions all wrong

We’ve been structuring brainstorm sessions all wrong | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
The traditional framework for brainstorms involves identifying a problem, listing solutions within a set of parameters, and then choosing the best.

But research on creativity and innovation suggests that truly innovative solutions result not from searching for a “correct answer,” but from the collision of different ideas, perspectives and life experiences.

Rather than encouraging convergent thinking, as traditional brainstorm sessions do, the goal should be to encourage divergent thinking: the practice of finding new ways to look at a problem and generating multiple solutions. In divergent thinking, the emphasis isn’t to agree on the best idea—it’s to get as far away as possible from the most obvious answer.

David Hain's curator insight, January 8, 6:12 AM

Kids do better than adults at creativity. We need to actively encourage and read divergent thinking, yet most organisations do the opposite!

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, January 9, 1:58 AM

This is an interesting take on a management stalwart - the brainstorm.  I'm involved in quite a few brainstorming sessions with different organizations and I'm often interested to see how groups norm around this kind of activity.  I was always taught that 'any idea is a good idea' and no evaluation should be made until the 'storming' session is over but not everyone thinks that way.

 

What I like about this approach, is the acknowledgement of the power of colliding perspectives.  Not only do they help us to see and think differently but they also help us learn as well!

Increasing your leadership potential | The Daily Leadership Scoop | 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.
