Today's World Realities

In today's rapidly changing economy, the old ways of management no longer work and will never work again. The magnitude and pressure of environmental, competitive, and global market change we are experiencing is unprecedented. It's a very interesting and exciting world, but it's also volatile and chaotic. You cannot address these new challenges with more of the same management solutions successful change requires leadership.

Why Change Fails: 8 Common Errors

Psychological research has shown that "under circumstances of uncertainty or unusual challenge and difficulty, people look for help in understanding questions about what matters, what to do, what direction to take, and what they should not do. Providing people with the answers that help them with these difficult questions is the essence of leadership."5

12 Major Causes of Failure in Leadership

To Lead or To Manage?

You need both. The old proverb says that leadership is doing the right thing; management is doing things right. The difference between the two is not as sharp as the saying would suggest, and both are required for effective corporate growth: leadership risk creates opportunities while management strictness turns them into tangible results.

However, "if your organization is not on a journey don't bother about leadership just settle for management", advises John Adair.

"There is a direct correlation between the way people view their managers and the way they perform. Strong leadership is imperative for shaping a group of people into a force that serves as a sustainable business advantage."1

 

Leading Change

Leadership is about getting people to abandon their their old habits and achieve new things, and therefore largely about change -  about inspiring, helping, and sometimes enforcing change in people. "While there can be effective management absent ideas, there can be no true leadership."4... More

 Case in Point  25 Lessons from Jack Welch

Jack Welch's goal was to make GE "the world's most competitive enterprise."

He knew that it would take nothing less than a "revolution" to transform that dream into a reality.

"The model of business in corporate America in 1980 had not changed in decades. Workers worked, managers managed, and everyone new their place. Forms and approvals and bureaucracy ruled the day." Welch's self-proclaimed revolution meant waging war on GE's old ways of doing things and reinventing the company from top to bottom.

Jack Welch is all about leadership, not management. Actually, he wanted to discard the term "manager" altogether because it had come to mean someone who "controls rather than facilitates, complicates rather than simplifies, acts more like a governor than an accelerator." Welch has give a great of thought to how to manage employees effectively so that they are as productive as possible. An he has come to a seemingly paradoxical view. The less managing you do the better off your company. Manage less to manage more.

Welch decided that GE's leaders, who did too much controlling and monitoring, had to change their management styles. "Managers slow things down. Leaders spark the business to run smoothly, quickly. Managers talk to one another, write memos to one another. Leaders talk to their employees, talk with their employees, filling them with vision, getting them to perform at levels the employees themselves didn't think possible. Then (and to Welch this is a critical ingredient) they simply get out of the way."7

Steve Jobs' 12 Rules of Success

Inspirational Business Plan: Successful Innovation

Market Analysis: "Managing and innovation did not always fit comfortably together. That's not surprising. Managers are people who like order. They like forecasts to come out as planned. In fact, managers are often judged on how much order they produce. Innovation, on the other hand, is often a disorderly process. Many times, perhaps most times, innovation does not turn out as planned. As a result, there is tension between managers and innovation." Lewis Lehro..

Innovation Management Team: "Managers succeed by following the rules. Innovators succeed by breaking the rules."... More
