Look at # 1 - hiring for attitude, sound familiar. It's nice to see more and more science that backs up what should be intuitive to us. Attitude matters.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:30 PM

"Concentrating on employee engagement can help companies withstand, and possibly even thrive, in tough economic times. Gallup researchers in 2012 studied the differences in performance between engaged and actively disengaged work units and found that those scoring in the top half on employee engagement nearly doubled their odds of success compared with those in the bottom half."

Like it or not, you are in the superhero business.  As a leader, whatever industry you are in, you need to always remember that the energy you bring to everything you do will be noticed and amplified. Your personal attitude is a huge part of what you project to your team and organization. If you aren’t demonstrating a positive, supportive and encouraging attitude, how can you expect others to?

Organisational development budgets are limited these days — companies are running lean on all fronts and training resources are as pared back as they have ever been. So it's important that every initiative counts.

Training leaders who are trying to do more with less often ask us which approaches will produce the best results: 1) Training the more senior ranks in the organisation to become better leaders or 2) Focusing on theengagement of the broader employee base?

John Michel's curator insight, June 27, 2013 8:07 AM

The human brain is hard-wired to notice and remember negative things more effectively than positive. That’s because the brain is hard-wired for survival, and is basically designed for a bygone “caveman/cavewoman” era. When you consider this, it makes sense that the brain registers and remembers objects and events associated with negative emotions more effectively than those associated with positive emotions.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, June 27, 2013 10:00 PM

"Thus, when it comes to employee engagement, employee morale, and employee productivity, employers must recognize what they do that might be damaging employee engagement, morale, and productivity. Likewise, managers must know how to do the same at an individual level. Otherwise, the negatives will overshadow all the good practices you implement."

Michael_J_Stone's curator insight, June 28, 2013 8:31 AM

Is this your "wake up test?" How many of these perceptions can be heard in your building? It seems like everyone I have ever spoken to about their job has said at least one of these ten things.

Each time we take a risk and it fails we have another opportunity to begin again.

Each time we face a difficulty we can stand up and try again.

Each time we plan and fail and try again, we are building inner resources.

Failure is a part of success.

Dick Cheuk's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:34 PM

Yes, failure is part of success only when we learn the lesson and change ourselves. However, too many organisations either punish failure instead of learning from it, or they "learnt" from it but fall short of making changes.

The truth of the matter is doing all the recommended things on the list is hard. That is why some companies are great, some average and some horrible. Some are just better at the items on list then others. The trick is not to do all of these items well as a leader but building a foundation based on culure and empowering your whole team to be part of the communication and recognition solution.

"At P&G, Lafley opened up everything. He wanted his leaders to be more collaborative, and just as importantly, he wanted his employees to be open. As a results, magic happened. He branded this open architecture “Connect and Develop” or “C&D.” The framework reached across all employees, regardless of title, and it drove not only revenue and profitability, but also employee engagement."


Given that the published engagement figures have rarely moved over the last 10 years, we need more people to investigate how to be flat army commanders!

How to Build Leadership Trust | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

What do employees really want from company leaders? The answer may surprise you — and, more important, may prompt you to change some of your practices.


“I don’t think the people who work for you want you to be an optimist anymore,” says GE CEO Jeff Immelt. “They want you to be realistic. They don’t want hollow promises, they want action: What’s your plan, and how are you going to solve problems?”


The hallmarks of what Immelt calls “positive leadership” are authenticity, transparent communication, a focus on the future, and the ability to solve problems and take action.

Great leadership is built around trust. How truthful CEO communication can build better team alignment and productivity at your company.

John Michel's curator insight, June 16, 2013 9:30 PM

Recent management studies support the idea that workers respond best not to cheerleading or a continuous stream of happy talk, but to evidence of a strong connection between words and deeds. Employees are much more likely to trust their immediate supervisors than top corporate executives, according to global consulting firm Blessing White. Why? Because employees can match what managers say with what they do. That’s more difficult to do given the layers of management that may separate them from top leaders, which makes it imperative that top leaders spell out specific actions the company will take, explain why, and offer proof that such actions have been taken.
