Vision always centers on people never projects, programs, properties, or profits. Vision focused on anything other than people is ego driven exploitation. Vision answers the question, “How will we make the world better for others?

The Perils of Short-Term Thinking

The Perils of Short-Term Thinking | Leadership | Scoop.it

It’s hard to ignore shareholder demands for quarterly earnings miracles. But too often what looks like “success” today can inhibit a company’s competitiveness tomorrow.

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, August 29, 2013 5:14 AM

Javier Gimeno, INSEAD Professor of Strategy, talked about the dangers of having too much focus on short-term results. According to his research this 'short-termism' can be destructive in the long haul.

 

He gives three tips to build a more long-term corporate culture:
* If you are thinking of taking actions just to optimise long-term earnings, don’t do it.
* Do things to attract long-term investors (to prevent overreactions to short-term performance evaluations).
* Review company incentives (unvested incentives force managers to look to the future rather than making stock-based responses today.)

Even a brief interaction can change the way people think about themselves, their leaders, and the future. Each of those many connections you make has the potential to become a high point or a low point in someone's day. Each is a chance to transform an ordinary moment into a touchpoint.

Ask Great Questions: Leadership Skills Of Socrates

Ask Great Questions: Leadership Skills Of Socrates | Leadership | Scoop.it

Socrates, this ancient philosopher holds the key to an essential leadership skill: asking great questions. The challenge is that too few leaders, managers and employees ask great questions. This is a big problem. Cultures that embrace a culture of questioning thrive and those that fear it either fail or are doomed to mediocrity.

Don't Pamper Employees -- Engage Them

Don't Pamper Employees -- Engage Them | Leadership | Scoop.it

In the intense competition to attract and retain top talent, U.S. employers are vying to offer the most alluring perks imaginable to their workers. Companies such as Google are leading the trend, hoping that happy employees are more productive, creative, and passionate workers.

A massage at work would probably make anybody happier. But happy doesn't necessarily equal productive, or even loyal.

 

On the surface, it's hard to argue with this approach: A free lunch, a siesta in the nap room, or a massage at work would probably make anybody happier. But happy doesn't necessarily equal productive, or even loyal.

Gallup recently studied the relationship between workplace policies and employees' engagement and wellbeing and found that indulging employees is no substitute for engaging them.

5 Keys of Dealing with Workplace Conflict

John Michel's curator insight, July 16, 2013 1:40 PM

How many times over the years have you witnessed otherwise savvy professionals self-destruct because they wouldn’t engage out of a fear of conflict? Putting one’s head in the sand and hoping that conflict will pass you by is not the most effective methodology for problem solving. Conflict rarely resolves itself – in fact, conflict normally escalates if not dealt with proactively and properly. It is not at all uncommon to see what might have been a non-event manifest itself into a monumental problem if not resolved early on.

Leigh Fisher's curator insight, October 21, 2013 11:18 AM

In this article, they talk about the five ways to deal with conflict in a workplace. The five ways to deal with conflict were to define acceptable behavior, hit the conflict head-on, understand the What’s In It For Me factor, the importance factor and view conflict as opportunity.  In class we learned about how to deal with conflict and even though the examples we learned in class were not exactly like these, both had similar views on how to be a leader and deal with conflict in your area of work.

Excellent tips! 

 

It seems as though we have more and more technology to share information, and we are connecting less and less.

 

We have to constantly remind ourselves the importance in Disconnecting from our technology to truly and genuinely Connect with our people.

 

What tips do you have to stay connected?

 

Make it a great day!
