For anyone interested in the science behind Inclusion, here is a breaktrough article. It is detailed and lengthy, but educational AND very relevant.
Research over the past three decades have demonstrated that even though organisations may have the requisite diversity in their midst, the employees may not feel that all the strands of their social identities may be appreciated and included – hence, leaving them feeling excluded. Unfortunately, there are not many available tools for organizations to gauge such desired levels of inclusion.
Our research sets out to establish the psychometric development and the validity of the ten dimensions of one such tool, and provide rigorous, statistical evidence for its ability to establish whether an organisation has indeed engendered an inclusive environment for its employees. The dimensions are:
~promotion/progression & development,
~organisational belonging, and
~ emotional well-being.
The overall measurement within the ten dimensions provides and index, which gives organisations an indication of where their diversity and inclusion practices are failing, and where resources and effort are needed to be applied to achieve the necessary change.
Teaching leadership and innovation is critical to our society's future. We could do better.
He quedado algo inquieta al leer este artículo. Quiero, al compartir este artículo, hacer énfasis en la ausencia de aspectos tan importantes y críticos en la educación de nuevos líderes, la ética o el compromiso social como llaves para el éxito de toda comunidad.
Everything you need to know about management you can still learn from reading Drucker. What would he think of your business?
Some things are ageless - that would be Peter Drucker. My one book would be Managing in Turbluent Times recommended by former CEO of Moss Adams and former CHair of AICPA & IFAC, Bob Bunting. Great article!
Oops, i work in education. Wondering if his statement for marketing and innvoation is also relevant for educational organizations.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then listen to PR leaders discussing the power of storytelling to build brands and energise businesses (Interesting read "@ThePRCoach: Good read: What is the role of #storytelling in #PR?
I love this post that reminds us all about the power of storytelling for businesses. Here Public Relations leaders share with us how stories are critical to use in business for branding and building a strong customer base.
Stories are everywhere, but the real trick is the following, says Tom Watson, professor of public relations at Bournemouth University: “For brand communicators, the challenge is to create narratives that are deserving of trust by their target markets and sustainable over time."
I also like what Kevin Murray, chairman of PR agency the Good Relations Group, says: “I use stories to entertain people at dinner parties to amuse. But in business you need to tell stories that make a difference.” Good point!
Go read what the PR professionals in the article have to say. There are great insights.

Have you ever worked with a very charismatic leader?
If so, then it's likely that almost everyone in the organization liked, trusted, and admired this person.People listened when she talked, colleagues supported her ideas, and talented people wanted to join her team. In short, everyone wanted to be around this person!
Charisma is something that many people believe you're born with. However, this isn't the case – you can become more charismatic, and we'll explore how you can develop charisma in this article
Charisma is a collection of traits and behaviors that make you appeal to other people. The word comes from the Greek word "charis," which means "grace" or "gift."

We put together an infographic that describes some leadership qualities that can be developed and put in your own skills filing cabinet.
There it is... the challenge of management on one page. Being all of these things is a tall order. Many are up for it, few really live it.... great infographic!
Love me some infographics.
Community, more than any other factor, will transform the role of leaders and influence the development of workplace culture. The power of online learning communities is more visible in lean-running start-ups where skills must shift quickly, but I think their effect will be more profound in established companies on a global scale.
, as soon as they stop seeing it as one-way communication....
"Online learning social communities exist which cater to all learning styles, all skill sets and personalities, native abilities and educational needs.
Available to employees on-demand as well as via mobile devices and tablets, online learning communities remove barriers dear to the hearts of brick-and-mortar universities and companies."
~I completey agree!
George Couros (@gcouros on Twitter) is the Division Principal of Innovative Teaching and Learning for Parkland School Division, a large district near Edmonton, Alberta.
As many school administrators are enjoying their summer break, we all tend to think of ways that we can make our school better in the upcoming year. Often, I point school principals and district leaders to a powerful post by Will Richardson that helps us point the finger right at ourselves when we are looking to push our school ahead. Richardson states:
"Meaningful change ain't gonna happen for our kids if we're not willing to invest in it for ourselves first. At the heart, it's not about schools . . . it's about us."
