Glad you found value in the post David! I think there are many lessons buried in here for businesses to take to heart.
Carol Sherriff's comment, September 7, 2013 11:49 AM
A great article and thanks to Karen for scooping it. When I am facilitating business projects its amazing how often Robin Hood (partly because my surname's Sherriff), King Arthur all the folklore comes to life - and heaven forbid if you don't know the different lore in England, Scotland and Wales. And yet this is a subject very hard to talk about in business.
Karen Dietz's comment, September 7, 2013 1:07 PM
My pleasure Carol and I agree about knowing the Robin Hood folklore! It can get tricky. I think it is very cool how folklore makes it into your client work because of your last name :)

(From the article): LOOK FOR THINGS YOU HAVE IN COMMON

Regardless of our differences, if we look long enough, we will find something that we share with virtually everyone. If we find out what that is, we can develop stronger connections with the people that we wish to have a greater influence with. In preparation for meeting with someone, we can learn the latest in the area of common interest so that we both have something to get the conversation off to a positive start and flowing in the right direction.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 26, 11:08 AM

(From the article): Research shows that there’s a clear link between transparency and employee happiness. When you regularly ask your employees what’s on their minds and start measuring your culture, you’ll improve your culture, build mutually trusting relationships, and gain a competitive advantage. Most people want to make a valuable contribution, and feel great when they make progress toward doing so. So if management wants to attract, engage, and retain its top talent, you’ll invest in understanding what makes them tick. While you might not want to give up your salary or redistribute all your profits, you may want to get honest feedback for what makes employees happy and what areas you need to improve to inspire them to feel like owners.
