Millennials Don’t Want Fun; They Want You To Lead Better

Millennials Don’t Want Fun; They Want You To Lead Better | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
After more than a decade of effort, American businesses still have not figured out how to successfully motivate, inspire – and keep – millennial workers. According to a new and comprehensive Gallup
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:
Could be then that a whole generation will force the change of leadership's style for ever for better... In long-term there will be no alternative of the inevitable win of the coaching/mentoring style of management... and it will happen on the needs/demand of the Y- (and the following) generation... it will be a good thing which will transform the workplace to more liveable place... it's not the new Kanaan but it's definitely a good future trend... the days of the "old guard" leaders are started to be counted... "Remarkably, this is a generation of workers that rejects traditional ways, and fully expects their bosses and organizations to adapt to them. It’s a stunning fact that millennials already represent 40 percent of the American workforce – and that number will nearly double in just 10 more years. While some of us may have resisted changing how we lead in response to the demands of millennial workers, the conclusion of the research is that we must act now. Importantly, the most progressive organizations are already on their way."

Let Go of What Made Your Company Great

Let Go of What Made Your Company Great | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
How can an organization both exploit and explore? Managers, consultants, and academics around the world have long wrestled with this question. Some have responded by developing a concept known as “ambidexterity,” an organizational capability of fulfilling both managerial imperatives at once. But simultaneously managing today’s business while creating tomorrow’s goes beyond being ambidextrous. There is a third, even more intractable problem: letting go of what made you great.

Managers exploiting current businesses develop mindsets based on what they have experienced in the past. Such mindsets become further embedded in systems, structures, processes, and cultures that are self-perpetuating. It’s hard for managers, especially those who excel in the current system, to explore new unchartered terrain. And even harder for them to notice that many entrenched mindsets have lost relevance in changing circumstances that require exploring for new businesses. Bottom line: Before you can create, you must forget.

Scientists have worked out one really simple way to have a happier life

Scientists have worked out one really simple way to have a happier life | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Scientists have revealed one of the most effective ways to increase how happy you are and it’s much simpler than you might think. Working for a charity, social enterprise or other not-for-profit organisation increases your happiness levels sharply, research has found.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:
On one side: good to know and what is possible should be applied in the other sectors (profit, state) as well. E.g. people satisfaction, self-fulfillment factor at work is more important than ever, OK, not really big deal/news we know that since relatively long (though mind too much complacency). 

What is IMHO missing here is that there are different types of people (I mean personal profile like basic motivation, behaviour, natural talent) and in my experience those chosing - à leur gré - the third (non-profit) sector are different to those chosing working e.g. for a profit making organization. They might differ par motivation, personal achievement/success orientation, you mean it, I think it is self-explanatory. 

Approached from an other angle (and referring directly to the title): if there would be (there will be once...) a really simple way how to make people happier at work and in home (and fortunately it would be the scientist bunch to determine it...) we would already be (we will be once) so happy that we do not need to write or read such articles...

"Gotta love this -- artificial intelligence devices are now reading stories in order to get trained to behave well in human societies.


This is the latest project and research from Georgia Tech scientists mark Riedl and Brent Harrison. It's fascinating. Read what these two have been up to and the great strides they are making.


The famous anthropologist Gregory Bateson told a story in the 1970s that goes like this:

A man wanted to know about mind -- not in nature, but in his large private computer. He asked it (no doubt in his best Fortran), "Do you compute that you will ever think like a human being?" The machine then set to work. Finally the computer printed out an answer. The man ran to get the paper and found, neatly typed, the words: "That reminds me of a story..." (Steps to An Ecology Of Mind, 1979)


Looks like we may be getting there.

...és persze, egyhamar elkezdhetünk foglalkozni azzal is, hogy hogyan tudjuk támogatni a 2000 után születetteket, a „legöregebbek” közülük már 16 évesek lesznek idén... Tény ugyanakkor, hogy az ún. Y-generation cohors igen nagy létszámú (ez következik a klasszikus népességi szám hullámzásból, ők nagyrészt a II. világháború után született („Nagy...”) nemzedék utódai...)

 

A mellékelt cikk címe annyiban félrevezető, hogy kifejezetten ezen korosztály coacholását említi a cikkben, de a tartalomnak jobban megfelel az általam javasolt cím...

 

Csak Schlagwort-okban:

 

1. Biztosíts nekik struktúrát és segítsd őket a fókuszálásban – ebben nem olyan jók, mert előnyben részesítik a spontaneitást és a rugalmasságot. Mivel ez utóbbiak is egyre fontosabbak, fontos, hogy segíts nekik megtalálni egy rájuk, és a szakmához, a választott tevékenységhez  hasznos egyensúlyt a tervezettség/struktúra és a spontaneitás/rugalmasság végletei között.

 

2. Teremts lehetőségeket a fejlődésre – általában magabiztosak és „meg tudom csinálni” mentalitással érkeznek, ezért kevésbé vevők az autokratikus vezetésre, sokkal inkább motiválhatók mentor-/coach-típusú vezetési stílussal. Hagyni kell a lehetőségek keretei között, hogy megmutathassák erejüket, kreativitásukat, kiválóságukat.

 

3. Támogasd őket, hogy gyors sikereket érhessenek el az elején -  ez fent tudja tartani, vagy növelni is tudja a kezdeti lelkesedésüket.

 

4. A környezetet, amiben dolgoznak, tedd a lehetőségek szerint tanulásra alkalmasnak – lapos szervezetben, őszinte visszajelzésekkel ellátva, egy autentikus vezetővel való transzparens kapcsolatban érzik legjobban magukat és tudnak a leghatékonyabban működni, dolgozni.

 

5. Támogasd őket, hogy gazdagíthassák az életrajzukat – ne számíts arra, hogy elszerződtek egy életre, de ha megtaláljátok a kölcsönös előnyöket, amelyek között az egyik az, hogy érezze azt, hogy nő az értéke a munkaerő piacon, akkor eg harmónikus, és viszonylag tartós és mindkét fél számára gyümölcsöző munkakapcsolat alakulhat ki (és ő is tovább fogja majd a céget ajánlani...)

Impostor Syndrome is the domain of the high-achiever. Those who often fear being "found out" have a tendency to attribute their success to external factors – like luck or a helping hand. Unsurprisingly, women tend to do this more often than men who are are more likely to attribute their successes to a combination of internal factors, such as grit, talent, brains and sheer hard work.

What Every Introvert Must Know About Leadership

What Every Introvert Must Know About Leadership | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
On any given day, being a leader requires the ability to be adaptable. Leaders do not have the luxury to retreat to their introverted or extroverted comfort zones, but must instead be “ambiverts” and have a flexible attitude depending on the situation.

I’m like a lot of executives, who, over the course of their careers have been “Myers-Brigg’ed” or the equivalent, numerous times. I think that I figured out that I was an introvert in kindergarten, when I was scared and shy to interact with the other kids. Girl Scouts? Forget it… I hated every second. Since then, I have had it confirmed over and over again through personality tests. But while I find it interesting that a test can determine my behavioral traits, it would be wrong to use this as a “crutch” during times of stress at work.

If you don't challenge your comfort zones as a leader, how can you expect your people to do so?

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, June 8, 2:16 AM
Mint gyárilag introvertált, tanult extrovertált, szeretem a hasznos, introvertáltakról szóló írásokat. A lenti ilyen... lényege, hogy adott helyzetekben a vezetőknek, de tulajdonképpen mindenkinek, használnia kell egy kicsit ezt is, egy kicsit azt is, nem húzódhat be állandóan az elefántcsont-tornyába (mert ott fogják felejteni...), de nem lehet mindig előtérben sem, mert akkor meg megúnják... 

Well, you know, everybody is very colourful, and this "colourfulness" is always completely unique for the actual person. This colourfulness is equally true for the behavioural characteristic blend of a personage like the motivational profile of somebody... this post below is about the even necessary colourfulness of a leader's (but for that matter pretty much of everybody's) behavioural blend. E.g. nobody is only introvert or  extrovert, we have a blend in ourselves in this regard as well. And it is a good thing because we need something, traits from both of them... I used to say that I was made as an introvert but I am also a learned extrovert too...:-:)))

Dismantling The Myth Of The Self-Reliant CEO

Dismantling The Myth Of The Self-Reliant CEO | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Mark Zuckerberg. Steve Jobs. Elon Musk. Tony Stark. Only one of those four is fictional, but all share in a popular mythology that the most successful CEOs are independent visionaries who create value through sheer inspiration and force of will.

As companies grow, so does the need for external support.
That idea has deep roots in the American ideal of rugged individualism. And for startup founders, it means the weight of their companies' success or failure ultimately falls on them. This is a heavy burden for first-time founders especially, but it obscures a truth that applies to many more: Leading a successful company often requires an enormous amount of support, and not just from employees within their own organizations.

At any rate, that was my suspicion based on my own experience as a startup founder. So I put it to the test (albeit unscientifically) by surveying 56 venture-backed startup CEOs on how they get the personal and professional support they need to keep their companies moving forward. This anonymous survey targeted three groups:

Seed-stage CEOs, whose companies have raised less than $5 million in outside capital
Early-stage CEOs, whose companies have raised $5–25 million
Growth-stage CEOs, whose companies have raised more than $25 million
What I uncovered was a dramatic departure from the image of the hero CEO. From executive coaches to support groups and personal therapists, CEOs rely on a surprising range of people to help them succeed. It truly takes a village.

16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow

16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
The gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge they need to thrive, according to the World Economic Forum report New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning Through Technology.

Today's job candidates must be able to collaborate, communicate and solve problems – skills developed mainly through social and emotional learning (SEL). Combined with traditional skills, this social and emotional proficiency will equip students to succeed in the evolving digital economy.

Via David Hain
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:
Well, it's always interesting to look at the newer and newer guess about what the future will needs from collabaroteurs and leaders... especially this one between 2015 and 2020 is at the same time interesting and (for me) not so ingenious but very good for thinking on a little bit and perhaps to discuss it... why sharing? Because the skills/capacities/strenghts enumerated like a top-list are always interesting to ponder about... Basically the 2 lists  are almost the same set wildely reprioritized (which in my view is not so important, important is being in the short list...) and by one really important change: in 2020 cognitive flexibility will presumably - at least acc. to the very prestigious WEF - beat out from the top-list of needed skills the quality control... yeahh, and the wider range category emotional intelligence is substituting active listening (not a big deal and I would have made this changes for 2015, too).

My point is that the basic underlying trends are just already here, we do not need to wait for 2020... by the way, one word about the only remarkable change... while I think cognitive flexibility is very important (arguably my most cherised skill - I hope it's not my biggest blind spot...:-))), and I can follow the thinking thread that the "cold" (mechanical) type quality control skill would be good to be substituted by something which makes the original goals of quality control achievable by applying/energizing more "hot", people oriented skills... it's difficult to say what skill that would be and, of course,  my IMHO scoop-it comment has no any such material prestige like that of an expert supported by the World Economic Forum but I try... I think that the skill of empowering people is in itself such a set of sub-skills (?) which makes it worth perhaps for the top short list (arguably it is a general skill to learn and not only for later leaders - besides, who knows ahead who will be leader one day?!)... I mean by sub-skills like capacity of trusting people (with enough personal & professional self-esterm and self-confidence), like an inner will to develop people (among other things in order to make them qualified professionally and in all the other necessary ways for empowerment), power to communicate his/her vision in a way that it motivates people and is able to align them around the vision (by of course involving them thoroughly and throughout every and each project  from idea to accomplishment in the thinking/decisional process!)...
