Redundancy: When will they ever learn? - Zealise Blog

Redundancy: When will they ever learn? - Zealise Blog | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
As long as you continue to manage people as costs, rather than as assets, redundancy will always remain an attractive option. Even if redundancy is not a “knee-jerk” reaction to bad performance it certainly can seem like it. At best it reflects badly on management and calls into question their ability – and therefore their right – to oversee a large organisation. Why?
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Challenging post from Zealise, thanks Bay.  Think about what is being said!

The seven traps in decision-making, and how to avoid them

The seven traps in decision-making, and how to avoid them | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
We get through the day with heuristics. These rules of thumb serve us reasonably well, allowing us to make decisions quickly, so that we can efficiently carry out the tasks that are demanded of us. But heuristics can be highly fallible. For example, we judge distance by how clear objects are - on a hazy day, we judge objects to be further away. Most of us are not flying an airplane, so this error seldom has a fatal result, therefore our misjudgements often do not get the serious attention they deserve (for insights into how pilots gauge distance, see footnote below).
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Great discussion on decision making. In today's world we are continually bombarded with decision requirements.  How do you deal with decision and do you find these traps reality?

The "morning bias" may cause supervisors to look down on workers with later start times.
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Interesting POV.  I have found the reason many companies don't offer flexible hours is they don't want to create measurable work packets that can be measured.  It requires work up front not just offering flex time. The negative outlined here is old school management at its worst.
