Entreprise idéale : les étudiants plébiscitent l’esprit d’équipe
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Ineteresting... Deloitte researched in consecutive years the students of high school (Generation Z) where, in which industry, etc. they would like to work, what is their ideal workplace...

 

They would like to work in a mid-size enterprise but definitely in international environment (the French, too!), rather in services (last year  still bank & finance was the leader, now,  in 2013 on it is on the 6th place!), and as for the values, the team- and community-spirit and the participating  leadership style are the winners.

Time Management Tips: How to Find the Right Mindset to Succeed With Time Management

Time Management Tips: How to Find the Right Mindset to Succeed With Time Management | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
For the past several years I have worked with time management techniques such as lists, prioritization, planning and so on. But it wasn’t until I adopted a Quadrant 2 mindset that I really started ...
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Emphasizing Covey's 7 habits' time-management quadrant system (you know, this urgent-important, not-urgent-not important,etc.)... I just think... first thing first: before making any priority-sorting just check whether the items/tasks/etc. are together not taking more time than available... i.e. check those items to be deleted, forgotten, got rid off... do it til the remaining items are coverable by the time available... then, you can use the quadrant system for prioritizing... if you stick to more items than doable in the time available your prioritizing exercise will be a very difficult one...

Doing some post-game analysis of everything that goes right -- and wrong -- can help your team win
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Business coaching has one of its roots in sport coaching... now, once more, this post makes the analogy between the two, by emphasizing the importance of practice, practice, practice (which is unusual in the business environment, partly because we don't like to face our mistakes) and post-game analysis which on its turn could help to analyse either our mistakes or our good points, resources... true, it's not easy to define "practice" in work but basically the  idea is smart...

It's a good metaphor for those who are working - for whatever reason, e.g. they haven't found their FLOW-producing activity - on a lowest level of performance... but I would be careful to suggest this as a useful metaphor to those who already working hard, say, on their 120 to 150% level... so, take care, in which group you are feeling yourself...

Accepter les signes de reconnaissance ou les réclamer | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Le manque de reconnaissance est fréquent en entreprise. Vous ne recevez pas de gratitude ni de remerciements? N'hésitez pas à aller les chercher. Apprenez aussi à donner des feed-backs réguliers à votre équipe.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

What to do when you are told you were extra/genius/great? Take it as it is with grace, e.g. with a "you're welcome"... don't try to minimize it ("oh, it was nothing", etc)... another issue is whether is it not more useful to say: "what ou have just done in this project at the end phase, helping the others not to lose their focus was very useful tuo the team" instead of simply labelling somebody great, extra, etc. But a little bit inadequate praise like the first one is still much much better than saying nothing...

It's very important to make the right mix of training, mentoring, coaching, etc. for your staff... and, of course, to be able to do that, it's great if you are very precisely know which one is for which to develop... for me, mentoring and coaching is separated by the actual usage of your knowledge in the process... the mentor is using his/her actual knowledge in the process (he was chosen exactly for that), while the coach (at least lots of variation of it) is taking care to let the client use his/her knowledge (one of my favorite, the soloution focused approach enumerates among its principles the "usefulness of the not-knowing"...)...
