Power of Leadership groups

Today's most successful leaders are focusing on sustaining superior performance by aligning people around mission and values and empowering leaders at all levels, while serving customers and collaborating throughout the organization. Over the long term, organizations filled with empowered employees who collaborate to serve customers will consistently outperform hierarchical organizations. Top-down leaders may achieve near-term results, but only authentic leaders can galvanize the entire organization to sustain long-term performance. from Power of Leadership Groups

Progress as a Motivator

The Progress Principle - http://hbswk.hbs.edu/item/6685.html?wknews=09072011 by Amabile and Kramer

Managers failed to recognize supporting progress in everyday work is an important motivator and impacts employee emotions more than other methods of support.

"And not only did managers get the wrong answer on our survey. In the companies we studied, far too many managers acted as if they didn't understand the importance of supporting everyday progress. One of the most common ways that managers unwittingly undermine daily progress is by failing to make timely decisions or provide clear, consistent goals. "

""Besides impeding progress, shifting goals can also drain work of its meaning. When people feel that their hard work will not amount to anything, they come to feel that they are wasting their time, and that their work is without value.
