Leader and the Wolf - Dave Jensen On Leadership

Leader and the Wolf - Dave Jensen On Leadership | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
What we choose to think determines how we decide to act, thereby defining our results. As a wise elder once related: One evening an old Cherokee leader told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people.

How to Make Managing Poor Performance Easy

How to Make Managing Poor Performance Easy | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
It takes a skilled and experienced manager to be expert and slick when it comes to raising poor performance.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

That's a good one... I like e. g. the enumeration of the possible causes of the poor performance... common sense but strong as it is:

 

a)      They are in the wrong job

b)      They have problems outside of work

c)       They simply need more knowledge or information or understanding.

 

If you are careful to spot which one is working, you might have a better chance to fight it...

Rise of HR

Rise of HR | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

“The Rise of HR: Wisdom from 73 Thought Leaders,” is a recent anthology published by the HR Certification Institute in collaboration with Dave Ulrich, Professor, University of Michigan and Co-founder of The RBL Group, Bill Schiemann, CEO, Metrus Group, Inc. and Libby Sartain, Business Advisor and Board Member.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 12, 2:17 PM

The following ten themes from the book offer valuable reflection, action and further reading for HR professionals around the world.


  1. The HR professional of today is more likely to be a talent expert, a technology expert and a consultant.  They must focus on 3 categories of skills: how to recruit, develop, and manage people; how to organize, enable and improve the organization; and how to manage, leverage, and exploit data and technology.
  2. Getting the transformational change process right in an organization means attending to the Structural, Cultural and Human elements. All change requires an expenditure of physical, emotional and cognitive resources that should be prioritized like any other organizational asset.
  3. HR leaders need to be conductors of the organizational orchestra, by coordinating the orchestra and being comfortable balancing the various tensions (individual versus firm, star versus supporting players, timing, and flow).  Three key elements underlying the new HR are talent, data and strategy, and require an ability to coordinate alignment across different levels of organizational hierarchy.
  4. HR professionals will need to spend more time thinking about and developing strategies for operating in what has become a transparent world.  More than ever before, HR professionals have to approach their role by constantly reminding their organization to consider the question: What would happen if an employee or customer saw this, or if this appeared on the front page of the newspaper?
  5. Creation of an employer brand is as important as our corporate brand - and thus HR and marketing should be attached at the hip.  In this age of transparency, employees are the media and HR is essential to marketing, as they deliver on the brand promise day in and day out.
  6. In any business dialogue, an HR professional can proffer three unique contributions - Talent, Leadership and Organization.  Three dimensions of competitive organization are organizational capabilities (what the organization is known for, good at doing, how it allocates resources), culture (pattern of how people think and act) and management actions (intellectual, behavioral and process agendas).
  7. Culture is the catalyst that connects executive leadership goals to HR goals and creates a perpetual winning environment.  Great cultures are created through everyday relationships that employees have with leaders, their work and with one another.
  8. Success in any field is based on two characteristics: long term resilience and the ability to be centered, or "in the zone" more frequently.  This resilience center spans five aspects of our lives: our emotions, our physical selves, our spirits, our finances and our relationships.
  9. Workforce metrics is strategically important for firms because the workforce is most firms' single largest expenditure - and the least scrutinized in assessing its impact on value creation.  HR must focus on delivering outcomes that enable top-line growth through the firm's strategic mindset and by leveraging the performance of individual roles that impact value creation and top-line growth.
  10. Forward-thinking HR organizations choose their leadership arenas carefully, letting others take the lead when trends are new to HR, and taking a leadership role as HR becomes more involved.  It means gaining credibility with functional partners from other disciplines so that they welcome the involvement of HR in their domain and are willing to help translate and apply their expertise to HR issues.

New Study Destroys Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000 Hour Rule

New Study Destroys Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000 Hour Rule | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
It takes more — or less — than "deliberate practice."
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Myth-breaking trial...:-))) Some side-track remarks: (1) in the "super stable" fields are not all super stable, e.g. the tennis... try to put together the two tennis phenomena, McEnroe and Federer, it's not the same, even now there are changing trends, e.g. for a certain times the athletism was the number 1 criteria, now the elasticity, the courts, balls are helping the home-landers, etc., if you take the classical music, there are schools how to play the old pieces, not mentioning the modern classical music... , (2) these %-s like 26%, 21 %, 1 %(!!) are very doubtful for me, where they are coming from with such a precision, not speaking about the very floating generalist of "education" (which type of education, what level, what organisation, etc.), what "sports" (is it for al of them?!), what "music" (hip-hop, R&D, Mozart, Schubert or what?!)...

 

These 10 thousand hours are at least a real "ball-park" figure (what about plus or minus thousand...), it seems much more reliable to me...

 

Might be an interesting point about his 10 thousand hours rule acc. to Gladwell himself (at the end of the article there is a link to this):

 

"There is a lot of confusion about the 10,000 rule that I talk about in Outliers. It doesn't apply to sports. And practice isn't a SUFFICIENT condition for success. I could play chess for 100 years and I'll never be a grandmaster. The point is simply that natural ability requires a huge investment of time in order to be made manifest. Unfortunately, sometimes complex ideas get oversimplified in translation."
