Generational Progress (from Gen Depression era to Gen Z)

Generational Progress (from Gen Depression era to Gen Z) | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Generational Progress - 03/25/2013
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Interesting and very comprehensive summary of the generations... which are plenty in every here and there as topics... it just reminds me an anecdote-type of quote from Kurt Vonnegut:

 

"Now you young twerps want a new name for your generation? Probably not, you just want jobs, right? Well, the media do us all such tremendous favors when they call you Generation X, right? Two clicks from the very end of the alphabet. I hereby declare you Generation A, as much at the beginning of a series of astonishing triumphs and failures as Adam and Eve were so long ago."

 

(in Syracuse University commencement address, May 8, 1994 - quoted by Douglas Coupland: "Generation A"...)

The New Role Of Leaders

The New Role Of Leaders | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

The role of leadership has changed. It is no longer enough to merely plan and direct action, today we must inspire and empower belief.

 

Strategy in the 21st century has become less directed and more emergent.  Even the military relies less on plans and more on commander’s intent.  Corporate chieftains are following suit, experimenting with management structures such as holocracy.  Yet we need to do more than simply change policies and practices, leadership itself must be redefined.

Angst vor der Frage nach der größten Schwäche | Gunter Dueck

Angst vor der Frage nach der größten Schwäche | Gunter Dueck | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Fast alle Stellenbewerber haben Angst vor der Gretchenfrage nach ihrer Einschätzung ihrer eige-nen Schwächen und Stärken. Die fast sichere Frage (verklausuliert oder offen) wird lauten: „Was sind Ihre größten Stärken und Ihre größten Schwächen?“ Da muss man sich wohl gebührend glaubhaft loben und nicht zu stark tadeln? Wie aber macht man das? Im Internet wird vorgeschlagen: „Meine Schwächen? Ungeduld, Perfektionismus und Schokolade.“ Das ist eine neckische Antwort, sie ist vielleicht noch einigermaßen charmant, aber sie suggeriert nur, dass der Bewerber eigentlich sagen möchte, er habe gar keine Schwächen. Er weicht also aus. Komisch, die Frage nach der größten Stärke scheint im Vergleich nicht so sehr zu schrecken. Da bekommt man aber erschreckend stereotype Angaben: „Ich kann mich gut und schnell einarbeiten, was immer es ist. Ich löse gerne Probleme. Ich bin flexibel und unabhängig. Ich bin begeisterungsfähig und engagiert. Ich arbeite gut und sehr gern im Team. Ich kommuniziere gut und sehr gerne.“.....

Change Management Models

Change Management Models | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Organizational development has been of focus for several years, but still many companies do not understand the importance of change management models. Almost 70% of all major organizational change efforts fail, which among others is because of a lack of holistic approach to the management of change and the extend of the models used. This emphasizes the importance for companies to have a good and realistic change management model before starting to implement the transformation.


Via David Hain
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

"Change is about changing people not organisations, organisations will transform when the management and employees change their way of doing business, which is why good change management models are central to a successful transformation of a firm." - could not agree more, yesss, it's about people...  change management is one of the leading topics... I don't know exactly, say, in the last 50 to 70 years and it will remain... it's not the first and last article/blog/book about it bu also not the worst one... additionally, a quick read...:-)))

Via Sandeep Gautam
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:
Body awareness - people report higher awareness of the sensations in their body, of the tought in their mind, how things taste and so on. Being mindful may also help with empathising with others because knowledge of the self provides sight into othersEmotional control - One is becoming much less reactive to things which previoisly piqued their emotionsAttentional control - controlling attention is "the very root of judgement, character and will" (William James)New perspective of the self - One is becoming able to see in action the thought processes that manufacture what feels like 'the self' to us.
