Align with Your Star Employees

Align with Your Star Employees | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it

Think back. Reflect on your career and write down your five biggest leadership disappointments.

 

If your experience is typical, your list will include losing top-quality talent. The memory of “suddenly” losing one of your best and brightest never seems to fade. The story is always the same: They weren’t looking, but a great opportunity just fell into their lap.

The Dark Side of Creativity

The Dark Side of Creativity | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
We may idolize rebels in popular culture, but in daily life we pressure these disruptive misfits to get with the program. Likewise, although the idea of embracing risk and tolerating failure seems cool and sexy, the natural human tendency is to preserve the status quo and make our environments as predictable and familiar as possible. Truly creative people are therefore often perceived as a threat.
Peter Vander Auwera's insight:

Resist and Thrive

Resist and Thrive | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
Approaching your work with thoughtfulness at the core is challenging. You’re going against the grain. Your tools of measurement are very different from your peers. It’s easy to doubt yourself — I do it all the time.

But in more important ways, it’s so much easier. You’re free to act with conviction. You can say and do what you believe is right. Your principles will still be tested, but you can respond in ways that will make you, your community, and your family proud.
It’s not about conquering the world, it’s about doing the right thing. When done correctly, this creates the ultimate product-market fit.
Peter Vander Auwera's insight:

By the CEO of Kickstarter:

 

"Approaching your work with thoughtfulness at the core is challenging. You’re going against the grain. Your tools of measurement are very different from your peers. It’s easy to doubt yourself — I do it all the time."

Debunking the ‘CEO Effect’

Debunking the ‘CEO Effect’ | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
Recent research by Texas A&M researcher Markus Fitza debunks the glib conventional notion of the CEO as the prime mover of a company’s fortunes. In a paper, The use of variance decomposition in the investigation of CEO effects: How large must the CEO effect be to rule out chance?, he investigated the impact of two factors: the…

Don’t let the expression ‘this is just business’ be a synonymous for inhuman.

Don’t let the expression ‘this is just business’ be a synonymous for inhuman. | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
There was no logic, no sense, no reason, certainly no business or organizational reason. This was magical schizophrenic thinking. The only reason why this happened was because of a capricious request from Bigger Power Holder to ‘reorganize’ and give extra troupes to somebody else. Pure currency, bazaar transaction, absolutely nothing that ‘the business’ could gain from.

These kind of situations are not unusual. The music in the background is the same: it’s business, not me. But the situation above had noting to do with business. It was simply the same as street, neighbourhood, territorial distribution between gangs in downtown Powerville.

Power of Rule Breakers

Power of Rule Breakers | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
The stress between individuals and groups exhibits itself when individuals break the group’s rules. As Jeffrey Pfeffer writes in his article “Power, Capriciousness, and Consequences” (Harvard Business Review, April 2013 edition), people perceive rule breakers as powerful when they’re not caught. On the other hand, motivation declines, learning suffers and stress increases among the people... Read More

The Truth about Performance Reviews and Other Corporate Bullsh*t
Peter Vander Auwera's insight:

"To put one person in judgment over another like that is unhealthy and abnormal."


"For years we bought into the idea that a boss is truly our superior and in a position to evaluate and judge us, but now we are waking up to see how crazy that mindset is."

 

"In the real world vendors sell their services to clients. An employer is only a long-term client, and nothing else."
