Are the BRICS solid?

Are the BRICS solid? | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
The BBC's Economics correspondent Andrew Walker explains what and how important the BRICS countries are.

 

Since those countries recovered faster than Europe or US from the 2009 financial crisis, the economic growth will continue. Around 7% for China for example.

 

[In my opinion there are still great opportunities for international workers and expats to find much better jobs in the BRICS especially at executive levels or highly skilled engineers compared to Europe or North-America-Anne Egros]

Em-pa-thy | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

How many leaders do you know (yes, please count them and let me know!) have the ability to understand another person's point of view? What happens at your boardroom table when it comes to differing perspectives?

 

By the age of two, children normally begin to display the fundamental behaviors of empathy by having an emotional response that corresponds with another person. Sometimes, toddlers will comfort others or show concern for them as early as age two.

 

So, why do adults in the workplace show little or no empathy to others? Many executives seem to have no concern for the people that work with them, in fact, their emotional response sometimes is more like a two year-old having a tantrum. What happened to their cognitive capability for empathy?

Empathy: The Most Valuable Thing They Teach at HBS

Understanding that people don't buy things because of their demographics — nobody buys something because they're a 25-30 year old white male with a college degree — but rather, because they go about living their life and some situation arises in which they need to solve a problem... and so they "hire" a product to do the job. This is a big "ah ha" to many folks when they first hear it; but when you really boil it down, the true power of this is in giving people in business a frame with which to exercise empathy. In fact, both Akio Morita of Sony and Steve Jobs were famous for never commissioning market research — instead, they'd just walk around the world watching what people did. They'd put themselves in the shoes of their customers.

 

Serious people will regularly dismiss empathy for the more concrete and defensible virtues of rational analysis. You'll get no argument from me that this absolutely has its place. However, depending on it alone to form your opinion can cause you to miss six billion other very valuable sources of insight.

Management Tips From Red Hat's Crazy Culture Every Company Should Steal

Management Tips From Red Hat's Crazy Culture Every Company Should Steal | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Red Hat is a meritocracy and the CEO says all companies should follow its lead.

 

Top 11 best management and leadership prectices from Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst:

 

1- Replace the word "boss" with the word "cheerleader."  

The more senior people don't necessarily have the best ideas,"

 

2-Include anyone in the decision process, not everyone.

In a meritocracy, the people choose their areas of interests and participate.

 

3-It's not democracy. It's transparency.

Employees don't get to vote decisions but managers have to explain and articulate the reasons for the decisions they are responsible for.

 

4-Collaboration tools can be a stupid idea

Collaboration is a culture, not a set of tools

 

5-People will call you an idiot. Let them.

The real problem is getting people who are genuinely nice to say something that might be harsh

 

6-Passionate employees will clobber each other.

Let them

 

7-Guide employees to self police.

As people grow comfortable expressing opinions, the obnoxious opinions will naturally be shouted down.

 

8-The boss isn't your mommy.

 

9-Employees who deserve free time get it, 100% of the time. At Red Hat, engineers who earn the respect of their peers get to spend "100% of the time to do what they want and everyone else gets zero.

 

10-Decisions take longer but execution is nearly flawless

Listening to employees means it takes a lot of time for every decision. That can be painful for managers. But it's worth it.

 

11-Managers need to personally answer every employee message.
