How To Build A High Performing Team

How To Build A High Performing Team | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it
In today’s hyperconnected world, business is more like an organism rather than the 20th-century metaphor of the command & control machine. The speed of change occurring in marketplaces requires stakeholders such employees, partners, suppliers, and customers to individually create, co-create and collaborate together to solve problems faster than the competition. Whether making commitments to customers, co-workers, partners, or your boss, they are watching, collaborating, and making judgments. Remember, teamwork begins by building trust.

11 Questions You Need to Ask About Your Team's Effectiveness

11 Questions You Need to Ask About Your Team's Effectiveness | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

You have a great product or service. You have the funds to make it happen. Now, the big question is "Do you have the people to stand by you and execute?"

 

The biggest question for entrepreneurs today is how to create a culture to keep your dream growing to its full potential. The answer is by creating a place for people to continue to develop both professionally and personally.

 

Dividing professional and personal development is an oxymoron. One feeds the other. And when you have an environment of mutual respect and open communication, more people want to hang around with you and make magic at work. The hardest part of work is the people piece. It needs on-going attention to keep productivity high and stress low.

 

Here are 11 questions to ask yourself and your team to make sure you are heading in the right direction.

5 Ways to Cultivate Creativity in Life and Work

5 Ways to Cultivate Creativity in Life and Work | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it
I believe that all human beings are creative, and that creative thinking is a central part of self-expression. Self-expression is a gift we give ourselves and the world. Creativity, therefore, is at the heart of being fully engaged in life and work. Creativity, like any other skill, can be fostered and developed. Under the right conditions, the muse (creative inspiration) will visit each and every one of us in its own unique way.

6 Habits Of Trustworthy Leaders

6 Habits Of Trustworthy Leaders | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Do the people in your office trust you? Maybe not as much as you think they do.

Consulting firm EY released its Global Generations 3.0 research which found that less than half of full-time workers between the ages of 19 and 68 place a "great deal of trust" in their employer, boss, or colleagues. Another recent survey from Globoforce’s WorkHuman Research Institute found that 80% of employees trust their colleagues, but only 65% trust senior leaders in their companies.

That’s a problem. EY’s research also found that low levels of trust majorly influences employees to look for another job (42%), work the minimum number of hours required (30%), and be less engaged and productive (28%).

Why 'Thought Diversity' Is The Future Of The Workplace

Why 'Thought Diversity' Is The Future Of The Workplace | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it
“The future of workplace diversity is here, and it's not what you think. In fact, it's how you think.While we've long known that gender, race, and cultural diversity create better organizations, the newest workplace frontier is all about our minds. According to a recent study by consulting and professional services company Deloitte, cultivating "diversity of thought" at your business can boost innovation and creative problem-solving.People bring different cultures, backgrounds, and personalities to the table — and those differences shape how they think. Some people are analytical thinkers, while others thrive in creative zones. Some are meticulous planners, and others love spontaneity. By mixing up the types of thinkers in the workplace, Deloitte believes companies can stimulate creativity, spur insight, and increase efficiency.Varying the types of thinkers in a company also helps guard against "groupthink," a dangerous tendency in groups to focus first and foremost on group conformity, often at the expense of making good decisions.”

That last speaker you heard probably found a way to say something just right. She was so articulate, you thought. Maybe you left considering your own upcoming speaking opportunity, thinking to yourself, "If only I could choose my words so well..."

 

But while word choice can project gravitas, it doesn't always. It's hardly just by using sophisticated words that you’ll project sophistication. In fact, overfixating on your words can actually make you stumble. More often than not, becoming a more powerful speaker demands the reverse: Focus less on precisely what you're going to say, and worry about a few of the subtler fundamentals instead. Here are a few ideas to keep in mind.

[PDF] The new Learning Economy and the rise of the Working Learner

[PDF] The new Learning Economy and the rise of the Working Learner | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Until recently, we thought of learning, working, and living as separate parts of our lives. In our younger years we went to school.  We spent our adult years working, and wove in personal events into the time that remained.  Now imagine a world where all of this has changed. In the not so distant future, working, learning, and living will become increasingly inseparable, not by choice, but in order to thrive in a rapidly evolving learning economy.


 


Today, working learners are all around us.  They are individuals who work for pay and are simultaneously going to school to earn a credential. Working learners are 21 million strong with 14 million in postsecondary education and training programs and another 7 million in high schools .


 


Low-income working learners suffer the most disadvantages by working and learning at the same time; however, intentionally linking working and learning through high school provides more opportunities than simply working full-time after high school graduation.


 


While this trend is propelled by working learners who are 30 and older, we need to also remove barriers for younger generations so they don’t get left behind.


 


The rise of the working learner signifies a dramatic shift in how we think about working and learning and what that means for overall life satisfaction: a new learning economy, so to speak. Just like any other economy, the new learning economy operates at many different levels: global, state, regional, and local.


 


Historically, research on working and learning has been analyzed and reported as parallel and separate paradigms with little or no intersection. These reports typically cover working or learning but not how they coincide and interact. With funding support from ACT Foundation and other partnering foundations, researchers have begun examining the intersection between working and learning and the implications for education and employment programs at all economic levels.


 


That’s why we have developed our new Working Learner Antholology of Recent Evidence, which provides a summary of the latest research findings and introduces possibilities that support the vision of a new learning economy where everyone is valued for their ability to perform, and where everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve greater life satisfaction for themselves and their families.


 


Research on working and learning is a new and emerging field and only recently have attempts been made to pull the two fields together.  ACT Foundation, seeing the possibilities and necessity for examination of this area, provided significant investments to bring together these two fields and to shed light on the complicated interactions that working learners face now.  As a result of these efforts, we have a better understanding of the trends, dynamics, barriers, and promising models to support the rise of the working learner.  This work has only just begun and will continue to evolve as new technology and innovative solutions are created to support successful outcomes to learn and earn simultaneously.


 


The new learning economy will give working learners greater access to relevant learn-and-earn opportunities, better connections to work pathways, clearer and more attainable learning outcomes, and increased life satisfaction.  The primary focus of ACT Foundation was to advance these trends in order to discover solutions to reduce the gap between the rich and poor and to increase the quality of life for underserved individuals.

5 Must-Read Books That Are Required Reading at Harvard Business School

5 Must-Read Books That Are Required Reading at Harvard Business School | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Getting an MBA at Harvard will currently cost you two years of your life and a little over $150,000. That's a little rich for a lot of folks.

 

But thankfully, while there's no way to replicate the connections you'd get from actually attending, there are plenty of workarounds to help you learn a bunch of the wisdom that comes with a top-tier MBA at a tiny fraction of the cost.

 

Alumni have written up their top takeaways from the experience, free online options are available, or you could shell out a much smaller amount for an online program that ends in a credential. Finally, thanks to the HubSpot blog there's now one more option -- just pick up the same books that Harvard MBA students are required to read.

 

In a useful post, writer Lauren Hintz lists some of the most fascinating books she found in Harvard MBA syllabi so you can nourish your brain with the same material as some of the nation's brightest business students. Here's a small sampling.

Anybody in a U.K. business who has had enough of change faces some bad news. According to research published today by global people management business, Lee Hecht Harrison | Penna, more change is coming and it will not be slowing down. More than four in five of respondents expected these changeable working conditions to continue unabated or even become more intense in the future.

But it gets worse: more than a quarter of respondents said they felt senior management was currently lacking the skills and experience to manage the transitions successfully. This was perhaps not surprising because fewer than half of organizations were felt to be preparing their leaders and managers adequately in order to manage change.

Understanding Innovation - People Development Network

Understanding Innovation - People Development Network | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it
In 2013, for instance, 93 percent of executives quizzed in an Accenture survey of organisations with revenues of more than $100m believed the ability to innovate critical to long-term success. But only 18 percent felt their innovation strategy delivered a competitive advantage.

In light of this sort of confusion, how should we define “innovation”? Maybe the neatest answer is to treat it as the successful exploitation of new ideas. It’s the process that carries ideas into actions – regardless of whether those ideas take the form of services, technologies, businesses, means of organising or even ways of thinking ­– with a view to not only doing things differently but, crucially, bringing value.

Four Ways To Improve Creative Collaboration Within Teams

Four Ways To Improve Creative Collaboration Within Teams | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Innovation is a team sport. Although creativity is a characteristic that is often used to describe individuals, the idea of the lone genius is a myth. Even famous inventors such as Thomas Edison where in reality representing the ‘work of many men’. Francis Jehl, a longtime assistant of Thomas Edison , used this phrase to describe the group of engineers who worked with Edison at his Menlo Park lab.

On the journey from ideation to a successful product launch, innovation necessitates the interaction of multiple actors, across many departments, with different expertise and knowledge. In writing about the illustrious history of Bell Labs, James Gertner notes that, ‘…almost by definition, a single person or even a single group, could not alone create an innovation. The task [is] too variegated and involved’.

Multidisciplinary collaboration is the stew in which creativity and innovation thrive. Such collaboration creates insights by exposing people to ideas from other disciplines besides their own area of specialization. This creates tremendous opportunities for serendipity. However, even in cross-functional teams, work is ultimately performed by individuals. Each person has to play their part. So how can we get the combined outputs of our teams to be more creative?
