Avoidance, still true in 2013.  Yet, something can be done.  That would be => Having the Conversation, Using Facts, Illustrating Patterns, Showing the Data.   That works for both low and high performance.


Imagine what would happen if that happened twice as much in organizations as it does now.  It could be revolutionary!  ~  Deb

Why extroverts fail, introverts flounder and you probably succeed

Why extroverts fail, introverts flounder and you probably succeed | Facilit8Success | Scoop.it
The conventional view that extroverts make the best leaders has one teensy flaw: It’s probably not true.
Sondra E. Jenkins's insight:

Not sure that I agree with the author's assumption that we, the readers, "probably succeed;" but his observations reinforce the research finding that the strongest predictor of success is not intelligence or personality, but emotional intelligence. One's "EQ" reflects a combination of our self-awareness, our self-management and our social awareness, and our effectiveness in utilizing that insight to build and manage relationships.

To Give Your Employees Meaning, Start With Mission

To Give Your Employees Meaning, Start With Mission | Facilit8Success | Scoop.it
Company statements that inspire -- and those that don't.
Sondra E. Jenkins's insight:

We all know that employees are more deeply engaged when they feel that their work contributes to a greater good. Ideally, that "greater good" is articulated in the organization's mission statement; but sometimes, the mission statement falls flat. We may or may not be in a position to write or rewrite our organization's "official" mission statement. As leaders, we have two tasks: help employees see how their work contributes to meaningful goals, and create/support an environment that allows them to experience the reality of that contribution.

What does it take to generate 'employee engagement'? (Part II)

What does it take to generate 'employee engagement'? (Part II) | Facilit8Success | Scoop.it

"I say that the human being is a being who, at some point or another, is confronted with the question: “Is this all there is?” That is to say the human being is a being that has an built need to live a meaningful life (a life that matters) with others. And that includes an urge to sing his song – to put his natural self-expression into the world. I say the access to ‘employee engagement’ lies in creating the context that allows the employee to get access to his song, sing it, and to do so in the service of a cause/stand that shows up as worthy, as noble, as meaningful."

What does it take to generate 'employee engagement'? (Part IV)

No human being wishes to see himself or relate to himself merely as a resource or a tool at the command of another. Each of us has a deep need to live a life that matters. And to be in an empathic relationship with our fellow human beings. So the challenge for you and your organisation is to a) stand for something noble rather than being in the game to line your pockets and those of your absent/invisible/illusory shareholders; and b) to treat your people decently respecting the dignity that is so fundamental to the health of the human being.

The Resilience Factor in Leadership | ReadyToManage

The Resilience Factor in Leadership | ReadyToManage | Facilit8Success | Scoop.it

Good leaders are resilient. They bounce back quicker from setbacks or adversity, and keep the team moving in the right direction.
