John Bean's curator insight, October 23, 2013 12:12 PM

Dan Watson and the article / author are right on - teamwork is a critical ingredient to any business' success.  The 6 team mate type discussion is definitely something to consider. 

 

In essence - this also speaks to the power of true Diversity and Inclusion.  D&I is more of a business imperitive than a social cause - as to ignore D & I is to pay lip service to "team work", and "leaves money on the table".  The article through the 6 team mate types speaks to valuing diversity of opinion, style, and background; and inclusion as valuable to a highly performing team.

Vincent Picton's curator insight, August 18, 2014 10:07 AM

I do not necessarily agree with this saying, but I feel that teamwork may lead to success faster.

 

It is true that one person may not be able to complete the jobs that five people could due to lack of skills, but if that person was very skilled they may be able to complete the task, it would just take them longer.

 

This is how I felt sitting with the client in the waiting room.

Mary Ramos's curator insight, September 14, 2013 2:46 AM

I think it's interesting the way small business owners and large business owners differentiate at handling the same things. One thing may be more of importance to a small owner than an owner with a larger company. It could also be the lack of experience that small companies may have opposed to a larger company who deals with larger amounts of things on a day to day basis.

Is Trust the Answer to Employee Motivation?

Is Trust the Answer to Employee Motivation? | Business practice | Scoop.it

Via Daniel Watson

Daniel Watson's curator insight, November 28, 2013 9:57 PM

 

Most small businesses that employ staff, find that the level of motivation in individuals can vary remarkably, and even for individuals their motivation levels can rise or fall dramatically over time.

 

Sometimes it is hard for business owners to understand what motivates or demotivates their employees, and given the complex science behind motivational theory, it is not surprising that articles on the subject can be very weighty and at times incomprehensible.

 

This excellent article, suggests that trust is the key factor in determining staff motivation, and it provides a simple infographic that very neatly sums up the whole subject to allow a better understanding of the basics of employee motivation.

Sigrid de Kaste's curator insight, November 30, 2013 3:01 AM

Most businesseses, will at some point in their evolution, attempt to introduce a new product to their chosen market.

 

Given that the vast majority of new product launches fail to excite their markets and disappear from sight very quickly, it pays for any business thinking of launching a new product, to first determine that their proposed product possesses the qualities of past successful products.

 

This excellent article, highlights the very real downside of launching a new product, and it offers a 10 point checklist that any business can use to evaluate their proposed offering against to determine whether or not to proceed with any proposed launch.

  • WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

    The  key factors are: Learners’ age, back ground knowledge, the purpose of learning, the learners’ circumstances (employed, students, unemployed, etc…)

  • DO YOU HAVE THE COURSE CURRICULUM?

    In many cases the course curriculum does exist, for example: National Curriculum, University course modules , In-house corporate training.

  • WHAT EXTERNAL PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS NEED TO BE MET?

    All external examination bodies provide an exam guide or syllabus which you have to insure your course will address them.

  • WHAT IS THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT?

    Would your learners attend any face to face classes? Do they access their course from home, work, or college? Do they work as a group or individuals?
