Responsible Leader of Today
“Life is just more fun when we are choosing to be responsible.” Henry & Karen Kimsey-House.
Being a responsible leader is pretty different compared to being a responsible leader decades ago. Today there is a more holistic and systemic approach to being a responsible leader.
Achieve better results with circulating energies
If you want excellent relationship in your teams, get them win first! That is the way Alain Cardon, - the latest presenter of the Coaching without Borders program series - explained the importance of result focused coaching. You never see a soccer team who has bad relationships, if they are a winning team. You can only see bad relationships in teams of losers. Work on achieving results, then they will start respecting each other and the relationships improve. Therefore, teams need to focus on high operational interfaces. If we remain at the soccer team example, their focus should be on how effectively and quickly they can pass the ball, to generate a circulating energy within the team in order to double the results and achieve a better outcome.
Systemic Impacts: Resilient Leaders and Resilient Organisations
‘Business risks are becoming ever more interconnected. How can leaders make their organisations truly resilient while also grabbing opportunities?’ Resilience has become a top quality nowadays, which indeed hard to be measured. Does organisational resilience really mean just continuous renewal of competitive advantage? How can a company promote resilient behaviours that penetrate through the whole organisation?
Systemic Leadership - Easier said than done - CIPD research on Leadership
I have read a great ‘food for thoughts’ posted by John Blakey related to a study. CIPD published a research which gives us lots of hints about how to recognise and reduce organisational blockages such as operational silos, lack of trust, blame culture, short-term focus, and poor people management. Additionally the report also draws our attention to important trends in the external environment such as the frequency and pace of change, greater transparency and global consumer choice, work cooperation and workforce diversity.
