Why it's time to forget the pecking order at work

Why it's time to forget the pecking order at work | Inspiring the human in business | Scoop.it
Organizations are often run according to “the superchicken model,” where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn’t what drives the most high-achieving teams. Business leader Margaret Heffernan observes that it is social cohesion — built every coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help — that leads over time to great results. It's a radical rethink of what drives us to do our best work, and what it means to be a leader. Because as Heffern

Naida Culshaw - developmental coach + facilitator + business skills trainer's insight:

"If companies give their talent something to focus on, projects to own, people will stay and help their company move forward." Creating something new, driving impact and all while still within an organizational structure is intrapreneurialism at it's best.

Learning, Talent, and Leadership Development: Evolution or Revolution?

Learning, Talent, and Leadership Development: Evolution or Revolution? | Inspiring the human in business | Scoop.it

In resonant companies, a shared vision trumps individual needs, and the atmosphere is ripe with enthusiasm, passion for learning, and hope. Resonant cultures stand on values such as respect, concern for others, honesty, and accountability. People don't talk about empowerment; they do it. In resonant companies, people learn together, pull together, and win together.

Naida Culshaw - developmental coach + facilitator + business skills trainer's insight:

Learning and talent development are undergoing a transformation in organizations today. This thought-provoking article challenges the idea of traditional "leadership development" - it's not just about individual learning. It's about helping people to connect and build relationships, which results in collective learning, engagement, and resonance.

Naida Culshaw - developmental coach + facilitator + business skills trainer's insight:

I love the idea of making the "handbook" a living document that would reflect the organization at that moment in time - and then - change. Mirroring the state of work today, where change is part of the modus operandi, a "Playbook for the year" might just pique one's interest.

Naida Culshaw - developmental coach + facilitator + business skills trainer's insight:

This thought provoking article explores the issues surrounding leadership talent. One quote that spoke to me "The best run firms create a talent pipeline internally. They identify the skill needs and potential career paths for their personnel. They map the skill sets of their people to the current and future needs of the firm. And, they supplement from the outside only when unusual situations dictate this." Simply stated, yet challenging for many to implement.

Dare to disagree

Dare to disagree | Inspiring the human in business | Scoop.it
Most people instinctively avoid conflict, but as Margaret Heffernan shows us, good disagreement is central to progress. She illustrates (sometimes counterintuitively) how the best partners aren’t echo chambers -- and how great research teams, relationships and businesses allow people to deeply disagree.
Naida Culshaw - developmental coach + facilitator + business skills trainer's insight:
