FROM Kelley MBA Blog: 10 Insights on Inspirational Leadership
Image

Introducing a new guest blogger: Scott Mautz, MBA’94. Mautz is an award winning keynote speaker and 20+ year veteran of Procter & Gamble, where he currently runs the company's largest, multi-billion dollar business. He is also the author of the book Make It Matter: How Managers Can Motivate by Creating Meaning, which has been recently nominated for "Leadership Book of the Year" by Leadership & Management Books. Help Scott advance to the finals by casting your vote for "Make It Matter" by February 15.

Scott Mautz
Marketing Manager,
Proctor and Gamble
Start your 2016 leadership campaign with a sense of renewal by considering the following question: Is inspirational leadership the holy grail of leadership?

Well, I define such a pinnacle – the holy grail of leadership – as that which engenders the highest levels of employee engagement and commitment.

So, by that definition, then yes, hands down, inspirational leadership is the summit.

And your employees would agree with me.

A major study examined a half million employees and their assessment of 50,000 leaders in terms of 16 core leadership competencies. The outcome of the study showed that the ability to inspire “is what most powerfully separates the most effective leaders from the average and least-effective leaders. And it is the factor most subordinates identify when asked what they would most like to have in their leader.”1

A pursuit worth the effort - but then you probably didn’t need a study to tell you that. We all know how it feels when we are around an inspirational leader. Inspirational leaders spur the expenditure of discretionary energy. You feel uplifted. The power of possibility surges through you. You might even physically get the tingles as you are reminded and reinvigorated about what could lie ahead and why you are doing what you are. You feel connected to the mission, to the leader, to others, and to your work. You feel worthy, and worthwhile. You aim higher and try harder. You feel compelled to take action.

You can trigger this response.

You should hear starting about a week prior to the decision deadline up to the deadline itself.

Kelley insists that they do send out invites until shortly before the notification deadline, but i'd think its the end of the road...

Rebecca Cook
Director of Coaching
& Development
Rebecca Cook, MBA’96, is the Director of Coaching and Development for Kelley School’s Graduate Career Services. Prior to joining IU in 2009, Rebecca Cook was a portfolio manager and senior equity analyst with Voyageur Asset Management. She has over 13 years of investment management and non-profit experience.

Sometimes we spend too much time buried in the weeds and not enough time looking at the big picture.

Deciding to get an MBA is a big decision – I know it was for me when I went through the process. We look at rankings, review various publications, and get advice from friends and family. It is easy to get lost in the minutia of this ranking vs. that ranking, why one says one thing and another says something else, yet we really need to take a step back. What should someone be looking at when they evaluate MBA programs?

Make Your Campus Visit Count


I knew I wanted to get a degree in finance but wasn’t sure where the best place was to do that. I spent time evaluating rankings and getting advice on one school vs. another, and realized that I needed to look at what the school could provide for me throughout my career.

I visited all of the schools that I applied to (as well as a few that I didn’t), which was really the best way to see a program. My future classmates were going to be the people that I stayed connected to for my career. I met with students, staff and professors, sat in on a class, reviewed the alumni presence and wandered around the campus. I also met with the career counselors to see how the school could really help me to be successful.

I found that the culture of a program and the ability of that program to help me define who I wanted to be and then help me get there were THE most important things.

Seek Key Indicators for A Successful Finance Career


Kelley really fit everything I was looking for, as it has for countless other MBAs since I graduated:
  • The finance faculty is amazing and does a great job of teaching you both the academic side and the experiential side of learning.
  • The career services team works with you on an individualized basis to help you figure out what companies you are interested in and helps to connect you with companies and key alumni in the finance industry.
  • Top firms consistently recruit Kelley MBAs because of their knowledge, humility and adaptability.
  • Your academy directors help to expand your experiential learning through projects, visiting companies and alumni presentations, so you are ready on “day one” for that internship.
  • KelleySchool is recognized as a leading school where MBA graduates can earn $100k-plus in finance.
I chose Kelley for these reasons and have never had a moment’s regret on that decision. The program helped me to have a very successful career in finance and then pulled me back “home” to work for it now.
