How to improve the results after a transformation leadership

transformational, leadership, john McMorrow

Proactive, collaborative and transparent leaders consider, the effect and reaction from others when looking at what changes in action, behaviour or management style will have over the team or department in their organisations. These leaders carefully measure how a decision relating to one department will affect the entire organisation. They will have an awareness of where to initiate the first action to best affect the remaining team members. These leaders understand that their work and those of each manager is only made possible with the collaboration, trust and momentum that comes from their team. These Transformational leaders approach each situation from a place of internal motivation, using this force to power the collective mission and vision of the organisation. By instilling equal value and power into everyone within the organisational, the leader is trusting that the change in the individual will inevitably affect a change throughout the entire organisation.

The loneliness of Leadership (D)

ceo-need-for-mentor-coach

When we speak of „leadership“ most people unsurprisingly think of CEOship. The reality is that although CEOs are certainly leaders, there are other leaders in the organisation apart from the CEO. Every person who has the responsibility for other people, is a leader of those people, regardless of where in the organisation they find themselves. The CEO is the leader of the entire organisation, but the field supervisors, for example, are responsible for, and the leaders of, the people and functions under their control. A leader is frequently very lonely in the role – not because they don’t have people to talk to, but because they can’t say certain things to certain people. This is not about „friendship“ but about effectiveness. Everybody wants to be friends with the leader – it feels nice, it empowers the friend, and it strokes the ego – and that’s all OK and fairly natural….

Wie man das Risiko der Frühphaseninvestition verringert

ceo-mic-sme-how-to-reduce-risk-funding

We suspect that when you acquire or make a significant investment in an early-stage company, your investment colleagues always consider the risk and suitability of the entrepreneur and those close to them, to take the company to the next stage. You know that the entrepreneur knows their products or services, but you will be asking yourself questions such as: *Does the entrepreneur have the required management experience and skills to handle the issues in functional areas where they feel less at ease (e.g. manufacturing, supply challenges, customer challenges, channel issues, industrial relations challenges, stakeholder management, marketing, and so on?) *Do they have the leadership skills to increase headcount and at the same time keep their people motivated and engaged? Creating a product, idea or concept is one thing; but can they manage the growth and all its implications? *Is the entrepreneur ready to keep focused on running the business and…

The 10 Laws of surviving in a large organisation

survive-large-firm-ceo-mentoring-mic

I have had the opportunity of experiencing and observing corporate life and culture from within the organisation as a manager, CEO and board member; and from the outside looking in, as an advisor, consultant, researcher, shareholder and observer. I have thus been able to reflect on the operations and effectiveness of corporations and organisations in the for-profit, not for-profit and government sectors; and on the people within those organisations. In that context, I am firmly convinced that to survive and ‘prosper’ (from a career perspective) in an organisation, one needs to understand the corporate context in which the ‘game is played’, and be competent in the ‘playing of the game.’ I am of the view that people within larger organisations who have career aspirations within or beyond those organisations, need to practice the 10 Laws of Corporate Survival. 1. Non-Existence of a Cultural Vacuum. Understand that the organisation is not…
