Strategies Involved To Appraise Employees At Work

Perhaps the ultimate appreciation is letting people know that their work – no matter how far removed they are from the top of the pyramid – is important to the organization. It's about making everyone feel like an owner and helping them understand how their work contributes to the overall purpose of the company. It's about practicing seeing more people. Excellence involves everyone.

Understandable Facts On Adaptive Leadership

Unlike top-down forms of leadership, adaptive leaders share the ownership of ideas and seek solutions from team members, rather than imposing their will. They respect diverse opinions and recognize that collective knowledge can benefit the organization. To become an adaptive leader, you must: 1. Navigate the business environment. 2. Lead with empathy. 3. Learn through self-correction. 4. Create win-win solutions.

Agile Project Management

Adaptability is not just a "nice to have competency." It is a competitive advantage for you, as a leader and for your organization. So, where does your company stand in terms of adaptability? What do you need to do to keep up with the pace of change, with the increasing complexity of today’s workplace? Long ago, Benjamin Franklin said: "Wide will wear, but narrow will tear." What can you do today to widen your perspective, to stretch the limits imposed, to extend the scope and meaning of what you do as a leader?

Six (6) Ways To Put Your Boss To Action

As the leader, you have in your hand the switch that can control the intensity of engagement of the people who do the work in your organization. It's like being a director in a movie: “The first work of the director is to set a mood so that the actor's work can take place” A leader's upbeat mood metaphorically oxygenates the blood of followers – it's a transfusion into the corporate arteries. It may be one of the most potent contributions you can make as a leader.

Implement Zenger and Folkman’s Fatal Leadership to Check Life Limitations

Zenger and Folkman's 10 Fatal Leadership Flaws take a close look at the most common leadership flaws and is designed to help leaders acknowledge and address their shortcomings. Whenever you are in a leadership position, take the time to look inwardly and think about these ten points. In case you spot any of them in your own performance, take the necessary steps to correct your leadership style and you will be better for the effort.

Bringing Generosity into Leadership

A commitment to generosity can only coexist with a mindset of abundance. In order to give, you have to deeply feel that positivity, wealth and appreciation are self-renewing resources, and the more you give, the more you’ll get. That becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. A belief in abundance leads to the experience of abundance, in business and in life.

Knowing and developing your Leadership styles

The greatest test of a leaders is the behavior of their followers, and the best test of this is when the leader is away from the team. An empowered team will function at the same level whether you are there or not. If you ever get asked, ‘What style of leader are you?’ the best response you can give is, ‘It depends what the situation requires and what the people I am leading need.’

Bringing Creativity into Leadership

Leadership fosters creativity, meaning imaginative use of limited resources. A leader that enables people to use their imagination is a step closer to solving problems faster, better and cheaper. Leadership is often attributed to a single individual. It’s easier to communicate success stories that way. People like simple stories that contain cause and effect even when they are wrong. The more complex story reinforces that everyone on a team can be a leader. The most successful teams create chain reactions of leadership. Adaptation triggers long chains of further adaptations that ultimately solve seemingly impossible problems.

The Need to Empathize as a Leader

Empathy is an emotional and thinking muscle that becomes stronger the more we use it. Try some of these suggestions and watch the reactions of those you work with. I believe you will notice some positive results. Empathy is what makes relationships work, and grow, and be fulfilling. Empathy helps parents bond to, protect their children and helps siblings bond to, and protect each other. Empathy helps strengthen the bond of the in-group. Empathy is, in many ways, an extension of the love emotion Turner was questioning; yet neither love nor empathy are second hand emotions. Just like love, we, as humans who are biologically wired for connection, need empathy.

Tips to Keeping Great Leaders Alert

Great leaders don’t tell people what to do, but instead take them to where they need to be. There is no agenda to create a group of followers or disciples. True leaders know that their success is intimately tied to the work of the collective. One person doesn’t win a war, election, or football game. It is a team approach where each person in the organization knows that he or she has an important role to play. It can be said with certainty that one person doesn’t single handedly build a successful business. This same principle definitely applies to schools and districts. Leadership is all about action not position or title.

Facts About Ulrichs Leadership Capital Index

The Leadership Capital Index is a framework designed to give investors a measurable value of leadership. It was developed by Professor Dave Ulrich, after his research revealed that the quality of an organization's leadership accounts for up to 30 percent of an investor's decision about whether to put money in it. Not only does the Index help investors to more accurately determine an organization's market value, but the organization itself can also use it to improve its leadership processes and systems, so that investors have more confidence in it and its market value is boosted.
