How HR Can Help New Leaders

How HR Can Help New Leaders | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Co-author of the book 'The Ascending Leader' says "more than three-quarters of the time, leaders who fail do so because of poor assimilation to the culture of their new workplace."

 

HR has an important role to partner with new leaders early on: "HR professionals should advise them to study and understand the culture first so the new executives can ensure that their proposed changes are a good fit for the company."

 

"In addition, HR professionals can help leaders assess and understand their strengths and weaknesses as they take on a new role—even if it’s within the same company."

As I have pondered these findings and heard the ongoing debates about improving HR operating models, I have come to the conclusion that upgrades to the HR operating model will come less from roles defined on organisation charts and more from improved relationships. 
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Exclusive essay by HR guru Dave Ulrich at CIPD's People Management website unveiling "his new HR operating model". This time no new competences or roles model for HR, but behavior principles on building and sustaining relationships instead. I would like to call it real 'HR Leadership'.

 

Ulrich: "Synthesising relationship research, let me propose six principles that, when applied, may improve the HR operating models more than debates about roles."

 

1. Share a common purpose 

2. Respect differences
3. Govern, accept, connect
4. Care for the other
5. Share experiences together
6. Grow together

(Because) it provides important insights into how we respond to change, what makes it easier for us to cope with uncertainty, what helps us focus, what affects our motivation and openness to change."

Motivation: This Force Has 3 Times The Power of Rewards - PsyBlog | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
To change people’s behaviour, the stick beats the carrot, but it only needs to be a small stick, research finds.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Interesting new scientific research from the Washington University School of Medicine on the influence of punishments versus rewards in relation to changing people's behavior.

 

In contrary to other research, the researchers found that (mild) negative feedback "may be more effective than positive feedback at modifying behavior."

 

The explanation from one of the researchers:

"From an evolutionary perspective, people tend to avoid punishments or dangerous situations. Rewards, on the other hand, have less of a life-threatening impact."


Although, even when people do change their behavior, be aware of the fact they can still have negative feelings towards the giver of negative feedback.

Jobs under threat from automation - Grant Thornton

Jobs under threat from automation - Grant Thornton | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
Fifty years on from the world’s first personal computer going into mass production, the Grant Thornton International Business Report reveals the scale of technology’s influence on business with the majority of firms now planning to automate operations and practices, potentially resulting in job losses. 
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

New survey by Grant Thornton focuses on development and impact of technology/automation. "Globally, over half (56%) of firms surveyed told Grant Thornton they are either already automating business practices or may do over the next 12 months."


“Are robots set to replace the workforce? It’s likely the wrong question. We should be asking: What human capabilities will be most enhanced?"


Grant Thornton thinks new roles and responsibilities will be created by an increased use of technology. "Globally over half of automating firms (54%) expect to redeploy workers in other areas, with 28% saying that workers will be trained to operate new machinery. Even in manufacturing, 44% of firms plan to redeploy rather than remove staff."

What motivates us at work? More than money

What motivates us at work? More than money | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
“When we think about how people work, the naïve intuition we have is that people are like rats in a maze,” says behavioral economist Dan Ariely (TED Talk: What makes us feel good about our work?) “We really have this incredibly simplistic view of why people work and what the labor market looks like.”

Instead, when you look carefully at the way people work, he says, you find out there’s a lot more at play — and at stake — than money. Ariely provides evidence that we are also driven by the meaningfulness of our work, by others’ acknowledgement — and by the amount of effort we’ve put in: the harder the task is, the prouder we are.

“When we think about labor, we usually think about motivation and payment as the same thing, but the reality is that we should probably add all kinds of things to it: meaning, creation, challenges, ownership, identity, pride, etc.,” Ariely says.

Below, take a look at some of Ariely’s other studies, as well as a few from other researchers, with interesting implications for what makes us feel good about our work.

Via David Hain
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

I like Dan Ariely's work and TED contributions on work and motivation. Here is a nice overview of some of his (and colleagues') other research in this field of research. Some of the research headlines:

 

- "The less appreciated we feel our work is, the more money we want to do it."

- "The harder a project is, the prouder we feel of it"

HBR has considered the robotic threat over the years, most memorably in a 1981 piece by the labor expert Robert Schrank. Written as a parable, the article imagined what would happen to the workforce once robots took over. Schrank came up with a novel twist: “Blue-collar people could buy their own robots, and the robots would work for them. Somewhat like a New York taxi medallion.”
