Kinship is everywhere. It’s empathy in action: a hug, a comforting word, the backbone of a friendship. Kinship is fundamentally selfless, intrinsically rewarding, a vital and extremely human part of being, well, a human being. Kinship is all about the affinity between people – the connection and relationship that two or more people share.
So what’s motivating your people? What thoughts are keeping your people up at night? Our access to endless information and socialization has given new life to age-old questions. Why am I here? What impact do I want to have on my people?
Our success doesn’t lie in becoming more interesting or disruptive. What we need is purpose and to help people realize their purpose. To know your purpose as a leader is to know yourself.
Leadership at ScaleThe winning organizations in a hyper-connected world will be those that create many opportunities for their workforce to interact with "the outside world" at scale (meaning frequently, meaningfully and in ways that are recognized and rewarded).
Before the company brand was everything. Today, the individuals working in the company are the authentic face of the brand, not the reverse.
Employee's brands and their company's brands are inextricably linked.
This requires the establishment of the WHY and then an effective social strategy and social architecture.
Positive leadership at social scaleSuccessful leaders of the future know that when employees understand and apply their individual brands to the company mission they create differentiation in the marketplace, build their constituent's trust, impact the bottom line, and win the game.
"The task of leadership is to create an alignment of strengths, making our weaknesses irrelevant"
Employees who feel engaged at work and who can use their strengths in their jobs are more profitable, stay longer, have happier customers and produce higher quality work. People who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged on the job according to Gallup.
Focusing on actions that will build and maintain a values-based system of “governance, culture and leadership” will mean less compliance activity, less cost, and more compliance as a result of real, tangible and sustainable behavior change.
Leveraging strengths at scale is a powerful, untapped resource. These outcomes can only be achieved through the establishment of a positive culture and enabling employee engagement at scale through deployment of enterprise social technologies.
So how do you motivate your people? What thoughts are keeping you up at night? Why are you as a leader in an organization here? What impact do you want to have on your people?
