Is it possible to be a fair boss to someone you'd avoid eating lunch with — or must you learn to like every member of your team?

Very insightful - especially if you `inherit' a team of people you haven't picked yourself - and helpful in dealing with what could be a problem!

This is something that everyone I'm sure can relate to, it reminds me of what we were talking about in class about what makes a good manager.

Three Secrets of Organizational Effectiveness

Three Secrets of Organizational Effectiveness | Leadership | Scoop.it

When the leaders of a major retail pharmacy chain set out to enhance customer satisfaction, market research told them that the number one determinant would be friendly and courteous service. This meant changing the organizational culture in hundreds of locations—creating an open, welcoming atmosphere where regular customers and employees knew one another’s names, and any question was quickly and cheerfully answered.

People still buy from people they like.  We spend millions on research to remind us of the Golden Rule, "Treat others they you want them treat you"  Whoever wrote that must be a brilliant individual.  Good advice!

social animal and scientific validation: pride building as an organizational effectiveness method

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 24, 10:07 AM

Well not terribly new, not particularly secret but still helpful. Autonomy, clear purposes, and recognition are described as sources of pride but we've known about these for quite some time in connection with high performance. More specifically, all of the ideas referred to: pride, trust, autonomy, purpose and recognition are associated with employee engagement--a key driver of organizational effectiveness in the #empoweringeffectiveness model.

The Great Transformation - Lead Article for 2014 Drucker Forum

The article is intended to provide the backdrop for the 2014 Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna. It deals with the challenges and opportunities for management in the face of the gigantic changes that we are experiencing in our society. Technology is a game changer - yet it will lead down the wrong path if not accompanied the appreciation of the essence of what it means to be human. Humanist leaders must provide the context and grounding for a society that is in danger to become increasingly technology obsessed. Hence the call for a 2nd Renaissance.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 29, 1:45 PM

Lifelong learning is part of a hidden agenda. What it actually means is rarely explored in any great depth. It is important, but is it something that becomes 24/7? I left School because the extra was not valued. I worked 80 hour weeks and found it was not valued in any way by my bosses. For me, teaching ran the risk of becoming a job. I left before that happened and while the love was still deep.

David Hain's curator insight, May 30, 2:57 AM

Learning is the only truly sustainable competitive advantage, but only if it's applied at organisational level.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 30, 8:47 AM

(From the article): Being accountable to others drives us to achievement. One of the benefits of eLearning is that you can learn at your own pace, however self-discipline and commitment to daily learning (especially if it is “lifelong”) is easier said than done. Your pace might just be a little bit too slow which could cause one to miss opportunities at being current and updated when your job position demands it. In this area, the group scenario is the answer. Along with group learning comes the responsibility of being accountable.

PASSION...PURPOSE...PRIDE: Leaders Are Agents of Change

PASSION...PURPOSE...PRIDE: Leaders Are Agents of Change | Leadership | Scoop.it

If there is one thing I have learned in my twenty plus years as an educator it is this - The best leaders are able to influence us in positive ways regardless of how long we have been in education.  And there lies the beauty in what we do. Admittedly, most of what I believe in, model my ideas from, and emulate who I aspire to be like has been profoundly impacted by people I genuinely admire and respect. They are my "influencers." They are people just like you and me who have shaped my fundamental belief system in what it means to be a teacher. Whether I have known them for years, months, or only days, the power of time and knowledge doesn't discriminate. It doesn't care. What it does care about is how another person’s words, beliefs, and/or actions move us to want to take our own action. In other words, they influence us and move us in a way that makes us strive to want to influence others in a similar way.

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes | Leadership | Scoop.it

The 21st century has brought much in the way of turmoil and change to the world of business. As a consequence, ways of doing business that were once universally accepted now seem outdated and inflexible in an age where knowledge drives economies and socially responsible corporate attitudes influence stakeholders and shareholders alike.

 

With such changes have come new priorities and responsibilities and it is in this environment that the theory of servant leadership has flourished as a management style for the redefined business world of today, one that can serve as a cornerstone for organisations wishing to build corporate structures based on stewardship, empowerment and trust.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 14, 10:35 AM

(From the article) Servant leadership will benefit organisations dependent on knowledge workers and in environments where high levels of creativity and innovation are the norm. Knowledge workers in particular require a sense of autonomy in order to function at their best and it is the responsibility of the servant leader to create this workplace freedom for them.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 8, 8:47 AM

(From the article): Great leaders that people want to follow want the best for their team members – they invest time, energy, and money into helping their people reach their potential as leaders in their own right.

 

When you look at your team members, always ask the question: What is their next area of growth? What would help them get there? What can I as a leader, or we as an organization, provide for them to help them realize their potential? Do we need to get them more training? Do they need to be mentored? Do they need more opportunities to try some things outside of their current role?

How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way

How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way | Leadership | Scoop.it

When I started my first company, I hired people I knew and loved.  I thought, Why wouldn't I want to work with my friends all day?

In many cases that worked out fine. Then my company began to grow beyond my circle of friends. The talents required for success became a bigger priority than the camaraderie.

 

I was usually able to find people who fit the culture and the job description and whom I also enjoyed spending time with. But every once in a while the person I needed to hire just wasn't my cup of tea. And while we shared mutual respect, spending time with this person became a chore, as did the experience of managing him or her.

You can't love everyone who works for you. Here we share how to manage talented people who you find irritating.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 30, 9:08 AM

(From the article): It's not that uncommon in larger companies to have employees who do a great job but their personality just rubs you the wrong way.  People are people and not everyone can be totally dispassionate. But a great manager can put aside their personal feelings and look objectively. I have mostly found that those people who make me uncomfortable are often my greatest teachers.

Joe Boutte's curator insight, June 13, 6:21 AM

I think we all run into people that irritate us and this article from inc.com has some good pointers for overcoming irritation.  I wouldn't characterize it as "managing" irritating people, because we manage things.  We lead people, even those who irritate us, through influence and everyday leadership approaches to get the job or mission accomplished.
