Collins’ framework for progression of leaders.

Posted on April 22nd, 2020 by Sanjit Anand ||Email This Post Email This Post

The greatest leaders are those who build an organization or team, or department that continues to thrive after they’re gone.

Collins’ framework provides insight into progression of leaders.

  1. Level one’s a capable individual who contributes talent, knowledge, skills, and good work habits.
  2. Level two’s a contributing team member who works well with others to produce results.
  3. Level three’s a competent manager who can organize employees and resources to attain results.
  4. And level four’s an effective leader who inspires commitment to a vision, and rallies support to achieve high levels of performance.
  5. Level five is the leader who possesses the combination of humility and a ferocious will for the organization to be remarkable.

Their focus is on leaving the organization stronger and ensuring that it can sustain success.

Interesting article on “how us as people may be getting in the way of own success”

The Solution to a Tough Problem Isn’t to Overthink It

We all like to consider ourselves smart, but Raw intelligence is undoubtedly a huge asset, but it isn’t everything.

“When we get stuck on a problem, sometimes it’s because we’re overthinking it. Pay attention to when focused thinking isn’t getting you anywhere; perhaps it has turned into obsessing over the same answers or approaches.”

Consider whether experimenting with a new strategy or talking ideas through with others might be more likely to result in success. Take breaks to let your brain relax and get unstuck. Expand your range of skills for reaching insights and coming up with new ideas; don’t be someone who sees every problem as a nail because your only tool is a hammer. And when you do find yourself ruminating, disrupt it by doing a few minutes of an absorbing activity, such as a puzzle. This can be a surprisingly effective way to break your brain out of a rut.

Adapted from “5 Ways Smart People Sabotage Their Success,” by Alice Boyes.

This is a really interesting read and one of the reminders is the importance of emotional intelligence. In his Article highlightes 5 Ways Smart People Sabotage Their Success as below:

  1. Smart people sometimes devalue other skills, like relationship building, and over-concentrate on intellect.
  2. Teamwork can be frustrating for very smart people.
  3. Smart people often attach a lot of their self-esteem to being smart, which can decrease their resilience and lead to avoidance.
  4. Smart people get bored easily.
  5. Smart people sometimes see in-depth thinking and reflection as the solution to every problem.

How ambitious should you be?

Posted on April 15th, 2020 by Sanjit Anand ||Email This Post Email This Post

Nurturing a healthy level of ambition in the workplace can be a tricky thing, organisational consultant Ron Carucci writes. Very driven workers may inadvertently appear too greedy for success or unrealistic about their goals. On the flip side, those that don’t showcase their ambition adequately risk looking cautious or unwilling to improve.

Carucci offers the following framework for achieving success in a healthy, balanced manner.

  • What goals can I realistically attain through my own efforts? (Performance ambition)
  • What skill or knowledge will I need to improve or acquire? (Growth ambition)
  • What rewards do those I lead hope to gain as a result of our efforts? (Achievement ambition)

All questions above are for DIFFERENT areas of ambition; more, improving how leaders operate in business.

As you think about how to manage your career, came across a great article by Ron Carducci in HBR.

Highlights and hits on key points and attributes on ambition, self awareness, and asking and answering the important question every employee and leader may be asked….”How ambitious should you be?”
