Collaboration isn’t about being best friends, or even necessarily liking everyone you’re working with. It is about putting all and any baggage aside, bringing your best self to the table, and focusing on the common goal.

Top 6 Reasons Why People Hate Their Bosses | Employee Engagement Made Easy! | Scoop.it
Is your boss a bully, a liar, or simply clueless?

 

Research on leadership and management has focused on best practices – what makes a leader exemplary. Unfortunately, many of us work for bosses who fall far short of the “leader” label. In fact, it has been suggested by psychologists Robert Hogan and Robert Kaiser that the majority of bosses are incompetent, primarily due to poor selection practices – the wrong people get to be bosses.

 

Here are the top six reasons why bosses fail:

Being a boss doesn't necessarily make you a leader, nor does being bossy.


In fact, a leader isn't always the boss.


The difference between the two is this: Bosses manage; leaders inspire. Anyone can manage, but not everyone can lead.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 8, 2013 8:19 AM

(From the article): Great leaders do many things, but perhaps their most telling characteristic is a natural and authentic ability to inspire excellence while maintaining strength and a modicum of humility.

Employee Engagement: More Being, Less Doing | Acacia HR Solutions

Employee Engagement: More Being, Less Doing | Acacia HR Solutions | Employee Engagement Made Easy! | Scoop.it

Employee engagement tends to become a top down initiative with a 20th Century mindset and context. Hierarchy, command and control management and leadership, people as ‘human resources’ are all mechanistic approaches and have often led to change initiatives being ‘done to’ people.

There becomes an over-focus on the culture change itself at the expense of what really engages people and creates real value with customers.

Since 2008 and the recession, employees have gone into survival mode.  They are surviving work.  This means doing what it takes to make a buck and stay afloat.  Sometimes that means losing their home to foreclosure in order to pay their other bills, moonlighting at a second job, or working at a crappy job that didn’t give a damn.

It is amazing to see how the economy has not only affected the employment rates but also the management/leadership's attitudes towards their employees. The sad trends highlighted in this article have become common in today's organizations for the past 5 years. But leaders and managers, beware that these attitudes are short-sighted and going to become your own trap once the economy swings up again...
