Remember when emotions i the workplace where taboo. "Business is no place for emotions", and if you showed emotions as a leader there was talk at the water cooler about being fit for the job. Finally, the reality that emotions are integral part of work and leadership. The key is being emotionally intelligent, "Emotional intelligence involves dealing with our emotions so that they serve–rather than undermine–your leadership."

6 Signs to Instantly Identify Someone With True Leadership Skills

6 Signs to Instantly Identify Someone With True Leadership Skills | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

What are the defining attributes of great leaders? That's the age-old question thought leaders and scholars galore have been attempting to answer in mountains of books and literature. 

 

While great leadership, to an extent, can be personal and subjective to the follower, there are universal principles you can't argue with (but you can try). Speaking of those thought leaders and scholars, here are six traits that keep surfacing over and over again in the leadership literature and best-sellers.

1. They challenge their own assumptions.

Great leaders may be smart and know a lot, but they are humble enough to recognize there are smarter people in the room that they can learn from. They don't restrict themselves from opinions and input outside of their own. They surround themselves with diverse perspectives to help them answer questions like, "How do I know my decision is the right one?" or "Is there a better course of action here?"

4 Ways To Help Employees Find Meaning At Work

4 Ways To Help Employees Find Meaning At Work | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Here’s a grim stat: More than half of your staff is ready to leave the company, finds a recent Gallup poll. Vacancies impact the productivity and bottom line of your company, but a survey from Globoforce’s Work Human Research Institute uncovered a reason people stick around. When asked the question, “What makes you stay at your company?” the number-one answer, representing 32% of respondents, was, “My job–I find the work meaningful.”

 

“Having a personal sense of meaning in one’s work was even more important than compensation, which ranked as the third most important reason for staying,” says Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce, a talent engagement software provider.

 

The trick is that meaning means different things to different people, says Becky Frankiewicz, president of the staffing and talent management provider ManpowerGroup North America. “Our NextGen Work research found that Boomers value being appreciated and recognized, younger people look for purposeful work that contributes to society, while people of all generations desire work that allows them to improve their skills and balance work and home,” she says. “Taking the time to find out what motivates your people individually is the first step to helping them find meaning in what they do.”

Humans have a need for social connection, positive reinforcement, and self-actualization. If you treat employees like human beings, you get more productive, happier and more content employees who are free to do their best work. When the workplace treat employees like robots or widgets that’s when things fall apart.

Increasing your leadership potential

Increasing your leadership potential | Wise 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.

The Strength of Vulnerable Leaders

The Strength of Vulnerable Leaders | Wise 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.

What the future of work will mean for jobs, skills, and wages | McKinsey & Company

The technology-driven world in which we live is a world filled with promise but also challenges. Cars that drive themselves, machines that read X-rays, and algorithms that respond to customer-service inquiries are all manifestations of powerful new forms of automation. Yet even as these technologies increase productivity and improve our lives, their use will substitute for some work activities humans currently perform—a development that has sparked much public concern.

Building on our January 2017 report on automation, McKinsey Global Institute’s latest report, Jobs lost, jobs gained: Workforce transitions in a time of automation (PDF–5MB), assesses the number and types of jobs that might be created under different scenarios through 2030 and compares that to the jobs that could be lost to automation.

The results reveal a rich mosaic of potential shifts in occupations in the years ahead, with important implications for workforce skills and wages. Our key finding is that while there may be enough work to maintain full employment to 2030 under most scenarios, the transitions will be very challenging—matching or even exceeding the scale of shifts out of agriculture and manufacturing we have seen in the past.

The case for behavioral strategy 

In this article, we share the results of new research quantifying the financial benefits of processes that “debias” strategic decisions. The size of this prize makes a strong case for practicing behavioral strategy—a style of strategic decision making that incorporates the lessons of psychology. It starts with the recognition that even if we try, like Baron Münchhausen, to escape the swamp of biases by pulling ourselves up by our own hair, we are unlikely to succeed. Instead, we need new norms for activities such as managing meetings (for more on running unbiased meetings, see “Taking the bias out of meetings”), gathering data, discussing analogies, and stimulating debate that together can diminish the impact of cognitive biases on critical decisions. To support those new norms, we also need a simple language for recognizing and discussing biases, one that is grounded in the reality of corporate life, as opposed to the sometimes-arcane language of academia. All this represents a significant commitment and, in some organizations, a profound cultural change.

Five Ways To Activate Leadership Potential In Your People

Five Ways To Activate Leadership Potential In Your People | Wise Leadership | 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:

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

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

(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 | Wise 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.

3 Things Smart Bosses Do to Effectively Manage Smart People

3 Things Smart Bosses Do to Effectively Manage Smart People | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

If you've been charged with managing a group of really smart and savvy employees, you have your work cut out for you. Smart people obviously know they're smart, which works to their advantage. They have high expectations of not only themselves but also of the people they work with, which ups the game for bosses to manage them well.

 

That's where it gets interesting. "Managing well" is not the same as "leading well." While bosses can "manage" their smart workers to accomplish tasks, it takes much more to motivate, inspire, and engage your smartest workers (also called "knowledge workers"). 

 

Here are three proven leadership strategies that will positively impact your smartest people to conquer mountains for you.
