Why Trying to Manipulate Employee Motivation Always Backfires!

"The research is clear, and has been known in social science circles for decades: Carrot-and-stick thinking is, at its core, a control method--and people always resist being controlled. Even if they don't openly resist, people resent being coerced into certain behaviors.'

 

Nice insight from Ken and Scott Blanchard.

Is Leadership a Soft Skill?

Is Leadership a Soft Skill? | Executive leadership | Scoop.it

By Thomas R. Northup

 

In today's new normal, we must adapt if we are to meet the economic and political realities of the next decade. The depth of the current downturn requires deep and rapid change, which is always driven by effective leadership.

 

All organizations are perfectly designed to get the results they’re now getting. All organizations have two things in common, a present and a future. During the present we program our future. If the future you envision is different from your present, you must exercise effective leadership to implement change starting today. Otherwise you will fall into the insanity trap; doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

 

To achieve a different future, effective leaders define their intended vision, translate this into a plan, communicate the plan to employees, and develop their commitment. Defining the strategic direction is an extremely important leadership function. It focuses the team on the longer term. The purpose of strategy is to produce improved results on a continuous basis.

Storytelling Masterclass from Karen Dietz

Storytelling Masterclass from Karen Dietz | Executive leadership | Scoop.it

I met master storyteller Karen Dietz of Just Story It here on the Scoop.it community and admired her work so much I asked to  intervew her for the Paper.li community blog (which I edit). 

 

Karen obliged and the result is this article delving deep into the crafting of stories that provoke action, as well as the dynamics of storytelling.

 

Key takeaways: Karen's insights on

*the right kind of listening,

*developing your listening skills,

*asking the right types of questions

*the 4 core stories every business needs to tell. 

 

Karen says "Storytelling is becoming a core competence for many organisations – it’s important not only in sales, marketing and branding, but in innovation, in teamwork, and in leadership development."

 

Much more excellent knowhow in the article - read it here. http://community.paper.li/2012/10/01/whoever-tells-the-best-stories-wins/

Three Levels of Trust – Where Do Your Relationships Stand?

Three Levels of Trust – Where Do Your Relationships Stand? | Executive leadership | Scoop.it

What would an organization look like if the third level of trust was prevelant? When barriers are broken down and others see individual's hopes and goals, the atmosphere is something quite different than ladder climbing at all costs and backstabbing behaviours. ~ JT

 

"When it comes to trust, not all relationships are at the same level. Based on the context of the given relationship – professional, personal, family, social – each one can experience a different level of trust.

 

There are three basic levels of trust...."

 

First level - deterence-based trust

Second level - knowledge-based trust

Third level - identity-based trust

 

Read this article to gain more insight.

Strategic Story and The Storytelling Leader

Strategic Story and The Storytelling Leader | Executive leadership | Scoop.it

Because of my 10-years of involvement with Storytelling, I have had great opportunities to learn more about the engaging concepts of story, how to construct them, and how to deliver them.

 

I have also shared this passion with my wife who is the Program Administrator at the International Storytelling Center. We all tell stories. We tell stories in our personal lives and we tell them in our professional lives.

 

In thinking of this, a big question began to stick in my mind.

 

It was this:


“What if we crafted and told stories more consciously, and skillfully?”

Hey -- here's a company doing brand storytelling the right way! What a great article -- complete with examples and a video. The company? Honda!

 

What are they doing right?

Listening first Finding authentic customer stories that have a connection to Honda Connecting with those customers and making them feel comfortable in sharing their story Sharing those customer stories but NOT as a campaign Recognizing that brand storytelling is iterative and evolves over time

 

The way they are doing these steps creates engagement. And I loved the story and the video.
