(From the article): Master these methods to give you more control in your meetings, especially when the stakes are high.

Mark Wilhelms's curator insight, August 26, 12:12 PM

I would add "Learn to Read the Room" and recognize the audience needs and challenges before speaking...look for the guy who will give you the most trouble and win him over first.  Otherwise nice read and if you master these other items, you'll have more control in your meetings, especially when the stakes are high.

Nothing burns good employees out quite like overworking them. It’s so tempting to work your best people hard that managers frequently fall into this trap.

Overwork, failure to recognize contributions/reward good work, lack of care about employees, failure to honor commitments, promoting the wrong people, don't encourage passions to be pursued, failure to dv their employees' skills and failure to engage creativity.

How to Create a Happy Work Culture

How to Create a Happy Work Culture | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it

Your company may have a fantastic product or service, but your business may still falter if there is a negative work environment. Most importantly, you personally must be happy and positive, and present yourself as such, if you want a positive culture in your company. As a leader, prepare yourself daily with positive “vibes” like good self-talk and listen to something motivating on the way to work. You can even think of whose day you will personally be cheering up at work.

How Accenture and Deloitte Got Rid of Performance Reviews — And You Can Too

How Accenture and Deloitte Got Rid of Performance Reviews — And You Can Too | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
The new systems generally:

Focus on the employee in his or her own role.  They no longer try to rank employees against one another or compare performance to other employees.
Provide feedback more often.  Rather than a single review once a year, the new systems tend to provide feedback more often, at the end of each major project or every quarter, for example.  Deloitte has also implemented weekly check-ins with team leaders to help fuel performance.
Require less time to complete. Deloitte is using only four questions, two of which require yes or no answers.
Move from focusing on the past to focusing on the future.

The Emotions That Make Us More Creative

The Emotions That Make Us More Creative | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
Taken together, the latest research on the role of emotions in creativity suggests that instead of focusing exclusively on bringing out positive emotions among employees — or attempting to dispel negative emotions — managers may want to consider additional factors, such as whether the environment brings out emotional ambivalence (Is the environment unusual? Will it tap into a wide range of seemingly contradictory emotions?) and motivational intensity (Will it broaden or narrow someone’s focus?) when trying to stimulate creativity. It’s time to move beyond such simplistic black-and-white notions of the role of emotions in innovation, and instead embrace the inherent messiness of the creative process.

Is rudeness in the workplace contagious?

Is rudeness in the workplace contagious? | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it

We experience rudeness and incivility all the time. From simple insults and offhand remarks to purposely excluding others from groups, these behaviors are largely tolerated in our daily lives and in the workplace. The question is, what effect do these behaviors have on us? It’s pretty clear that high-intensity negative behaviors like abuse, aggression and violence are harmful. But what’s the harm in just being rude and uncivil? A growing body of research offers compelling evidence that experiencing rudeness, and even simply witnessing rudeness, can have surprisingly harmful effects on performance, creativity and even helpfulness. However, it might not even end there. What if rudeness was actually contagious? This would mean that rudeness may not only hurt those who experience or witness it, but also have secondary effects. People who’ve experienced rude behavior from others are now “infected” with rudeness themselves, and will be rude to the people they interact with next.

When watching this case in class, this does really go to show how a mediation might help and would have most likely in this case go to show how it would have prevented this bloodbath.
