Self-Awareness: The Key to Authentic Leadership

Who you are, is how you lead.Leadership is about authenticity. Who you are is how you lead. I have seen many leaders crumble by the facades they present. When the pressure is on, the “real person” comes out. Reverting back to type is a common phrase that describes this behaviour. In my experience, I have found people revert back to type, only when they haven’t taken their previous errors and modified their behaviours.

Hoe ‘stuur’ je een rondetafelsessie over zelfsturing? Laat het maar gewoon gebeuren. De deelnemers komen uit zeer uiteenlopende branches, maar hebben vooral veel gemeen: binnen hun branche besloten ze om de dingen anders te gaan doen, vaak op een radicale manier. Ze leggen verantwoordelijkheden écht bij de medewerkers, en niet bovenin de organisatie. En ze hebben succes met hun aanpak.

Three Worlds for the Future of Work

Recently PwC released a 30 page report called “The Future of Work – A Journey to 2022,” which is actually quite fascinating. In fact, I did a podcast with Toni Cusumanowho helped create the report. While the whole thing is worth a read, I think the most interesting and important aspect of the report is the concept they created around “three worlds of work.” Toni is actually going to be speaking about this at the upcoming future of work forum being held in San Francisco on April 29th. The three worlds are: the blue world, the orange world, and the green world. You can see the breakdown of these three in the graphic above (taken from the PwC report).

NSA phone metadata tracking ruled illegal

The US National Security Agency (NSA) bulk collection of mobile phone metadata – revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013 – has been ruled unlawful by a US federal appeal court.

The metadata collection programme was authorised by President George W. Bush under Section 215 of the Patriot Act after the attack on the World Trade Center in New York in 2001. The landmark decision overturns a 2013 ruling that the surveillance could not be subject to judicial review and opens the NSA to further legal challenges.
