Taking a break is secret to success

Taking a break is secret to success | Leadership & Change Management | Scoop.it

FORGET what your teachers said, practice doesn't make perfect.

 

At least it doesn't when you practise over and over again without a break.
Sydney scientists have found learning improves when students take a rest from continuous study or training.


''It seems intuitive that every minute of study should make you better, but, actually, if you do too much it might backfire and you end up wasting time,'' said the study's lead researcher, Joel Pearson.

Best Practices - Aren't - Forbes

Best Practices - Aren't - Forbes | Leadership & Change Management | Scoop.it

There is no such thing as best practices. The reality is best practices are nothing more than disparate groups of methodologies, processes, rules, concepts and theories that attained a level of success in certain areas, and because of those successes, have been deemed as universal truths able to be applied anywhere and everywhere. Just because someone says something doesn’t mean it’s true. Moreover, just because “Company A” had success with a certain initiative doesn’t mean that “Company B” can plug-and-play the same process and expect the same outcome. There is always room for new thinking and innovation, or at least there should be.

Welll, don't be too intimidated or even bored by the long list... they are perls... OK, you've met perhaps even each (don't think so but might be...) but it's such a goog arrangements to have them together and need nt read a whole book (though there are recommendations within about some)... it is worth even to copy it out to recheck them from time to time... good reading and thinking about them....

How to Get Senior Leaders to Change

How to Get Senior Leaders to Change | Leadership & Change Management | Scoop.it

In many behavior-related areas, human beings consistently think they are better than they are — a phenomenon referred to in psychology as a "self-serving bias." But the inconvenient truth is that the real bottleneck to role modeling is knowing what to change at a personal level.

CEOs Who Tweet Held in High Regard

CEOs Who Tweet Held in High Regard | Leadership & Change Management | Scoop.it

Social media use by top execs positively influences employee engagement.

 

This interesting study reveals that CEO activity on social networks appears to influence employees’ faith in their company. The study findings indicate that 82% of employee respondents trust a company more when the CEO and leadership team communicate via social media.

 

The recent Edleman report shows a significant trust gap between employees and leadership "Execs ranked the credibilty of regular employese second to last out of eight information sources.  While employees awarded second to last honours to the CEO."     

 

Of course it takes more than a tweet or two to develop trust.  It takes acting with integrity and creating a culture where trust can grow.  

 

However there are instances where leadership behaviours are consistent with the company values but just aren't visible enough.  Effective use of social media in these instances can help create that visibility.

More than ever managers must have just as strong of a pulse on the business (internally and externally) as those who are managing it on the front lines. Most importantly, managers must quickly earn trust from their colleagues to inspire team unity and collaboration that is centered on the fundamental principles of loyalty, communication and transparency.

Margaret Heffernan: Dare to disagree | Video on TED.com

Why disagreement and conflict are critical for organizations to progress.

3 highlights to innovate:

- Find people different from us
- Find ways to engage with them
- Work with partners who are not echo-chambers

 

Comments from Ali Godding (Employee Engagement Manager at Grass Roots):

As Nita Clarke, Vice Chair of the Employee Engagement Task Force said (I paraphrase) "When disaster strikes an organisation, whether that disaster be to do with market positioning or health and safety, you can be sure someone knew it was coming. Often people were to afraid to say anything or didn't believe they would be listened to, in some circumstances, sadly they did say something and were ignored"

As managers we can sometimes feel that we know what's best. It takes courage to acknowledge we don't.

So lets all commit to developing the skill of really listening to people and gaining the confidence to facilitate the kind of good disagreements that make real progress possible."

Top leaders can’t hide behind hierarchy, which is a declining construct anyway.
Agile and resilient organizations – and people – will outperform competitors.

This means that people will be deployed in flexible project teams rather than confined to a single pre-defined job, but at the same time, individual accountabilities will be clear, making the organization results-oriented as well as fast-moving.
