We often forget about the people involved in change. Even term change management is one that forgets people. We lead people and manage things. Yet, we want to manage the people side of change. Let's change the language and leadership actions.

Stop Saying 'Workaholic' Like It's a Good Thing

Stop Saying 'Workaholic' Like It's a Good Thing | Change Management | Scoop.it

Let's just make one thing clear--being called a "workaholic" is not a compliment. Taking time off is essential for being a happy, healthy, whole individual. So unless you want to be a miserable, sickly mutated chimera, you should be taking more time off. Stop working so hard. It could be killing you.

 

Stop Giving Up Vacation Time! Are You Crazy?


It's been increasingly more common for employees to sacrifice their vacation days in exchange for a nod from higher ups. Some believe that surrendering their time off demonstrates their commitment to the company, serving as a testament to their work ethic and, hopefully, resulting in job security.

Extended time off is key for a happy, productive life. So why isn't it more common?

Haresh Patel's curator insight, July 25, 2014 5:26 AM

If American feels, they are work-alcoholic then what about Indian IT Crowd? I always envy my German friend who always makes most out his every extended weekend - vacationing round the year. 

 

Way to go....

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, July 26, 2014 12:46 PM

The lack of vacation Americans take can't be emphasized enough. Being a workaholic is unhealthy. The way most of us work, it takes at least one week of vacation to unwind.

Awareness of what can go wrong, is somewhat lacking amongst many of the thousands of small business owners, whose dreams go up in smoke each year.


Whilst jumping in head first and learning the hard lessons as you go along has a certain ring to it and has served many well, it has cost countless more their livelihoods, and is not recommended for those who want more certainty in regards to the likelihood of their business venture succeeding.


This excellent article, suggests that being aware of and preparing to face the know pitfalls in any business start up is the key to survival, and it identifies the four most common pitfalls that business owners must overcome to be successful.

Never Forget Someone's Name Again With This Memory Trick

Never Forget Someone's Name Again With This Memory Trick | Change Management | Scoop.it

Sometimes one of the important aspects to career success can be something intangible like how likeable you are.

 

That vague feeling of goodwill is often determined by how genuine you seem when interacting with others. One of the first steps to showing someone you sincerely care about what they’re saying is remembering what they say--especially their name.

 

According to a Dale Carnegie training course I took last year, the sweetest sound to anyone’s ear--no matter what language it’s in--is their name. Without nailing down this first step, it can be difficult to move forward in building a genuine professional or personal relationship. Unfortunately, this can be a difficult task since someone else’s name often doesn’t mean anything to us (it’s just another word) so it’s difficult for our brains to remember it.
