Build Your Own All-Star Team

Build Your Own All-Star Team | Daily Leadership: Everyday Leaders | Scoop.it

Let’s imagine that you have recently assessed your company’s talent, and that you found plenty of high-performing executives and employees. Yet somehow your company’s overall performance isn’t where it should be — all those “A” players just aren’t getting the job done. Why?

 

The fact is, it isn’t enough just to hire the best. If you want to boost the productivity of your organization’s human capital, you also have to deploy those high performers effectively — put them to work so they can deliver the results they’re capable of. One of the most effective methods of deployment I’ve seen is to create all-star teams. Teams like these are a kind of force multiplier: if you group (say) three individuals from your list of A players into a team, you’ll typically get more than three times the output.

Winning the Generation Game - Crossing Over | Daily Leadership: Everyday Leaders | Scoop.it

“WHY do you pander to them?” This question kept being put to Marian Salzman, the boss of Havas PR, by her older workers in the days after the firm launched its latest recruitment ad..."

 

...A recent survey by Ernst & Young, which asked American professionals from each age group their opinions of each generation, found significant differences, not all of them predictable.  (Chart in original source.)

 

 ....To get them to work together ...[Ernst & Young] is encouraging them ...do voluntary work in cross-generational teams. Millennials may be cool with this; their older peers not so much.

Connect the dots, from the article - Baby-boomers, GenX and Millenials.  Which group is seen as:

  • hard-working and productive
  • best team players
  • good at tech stuff but truculent  & work-shy?


This piece shares research and raises state-of-the-practice questions about how to work across generational differences.

Moving Beyond Hierarchy - What is Working Now to Lead Through Change?

Moving Beyond Hierarchy - What is Working Now to Lead Through Change? | Daily Leadership: Everyday Leaders | Scoop.it

"Letting people manage themselves actually works."

 

[It] enables people to control their own destinies... [radical decentralization is] aligned with the urgings of our selfish genes. 

From a market perspective, it’s more efficient and effective. 

From a cultural perspective, virtually every organizational innovation since the Western Electric Hawthorne studies has been aimed at fostering democracy and initiative in the workplace because it’s good for both people and the business. 

Moving to an entrepreneurial organization is just the next step. –from -  Charles Jacobs: Management Rewired

Harold Jarche's collection of quotes and readings forecasts the evolution or creative destruction of industrial age hierarchies.
     

Take GM, for instance. It has an embedded, decades old cultural hierarchy that struggles to embrace team concepts, plant by plant. It is just now starting to happen. It affects how decisions are made and can result in problem decisions, cascading to bad press, such as the massive recall now happening.
    

Compare that to Zappos, using holacracy, and those using wirearchy as new forms of leadership.  Zappos started with a completely different baseline for how leadership will be distributed. Time will tell how growth will happen in both companies. ~ D

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 24, 2013 11:41 AM

Thanks for the great curation Maria Rachelle.  Starting with my mother, some of the most influential leadership mentors I have had are women.   This research makes a lot of sense to me!

 

Especially the following section:

 

Empathy Is Innovation. While leaders spend considerable time and effort trying to envision markets and pushing out innovation, empathy can often generate simple, yet breakthrough ideas. In her years working as an advocate for charities in Britain and abroad, Anna Pearson noticed a pattern: there were many people who wanted to volunteer — but were too busy (or had schedules too varied) to commit to a cause.

 

To bridge the gap between what volunteers could give and what people need, Anna re-imagined volunteering on a very small scale. Her London-based non-profit Spots of Time connects organizations with people who can give an hour or so at a time, and often at a moment’s notice. The lesson? Anna trained her empathy not just on beneficiaries of charity but also on volunteers. That kindness and sensitivity to others was the catalyst for creativity.

Do you find you get more "strokes" for negativity than positive?  For instance, the "Oh, I'm so sorry!" response for being hurt rather than the "Good for you!" response when you tell people you're well? Do you even bother to talk about the positive things in your life or career?  If not, you might want to reconsider after reading this article.

"

I'm giving you these comments because I have very high expectations and I know that you can reach them.

That's it: just 19 words. But those words are powerful because they are not really feedback. They're a signal that creates something more powerful: a sense of belonging and connection.

Looking closer, the phrase contains several distinct signals:

1)    You are part of this group.

2)    This group is special; we have higher standards here.

3)    I believe you can reach those standards."

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:38 PM

Taking responsibility for your own career development empowered by peer learning networks is the current and next trend for learning professionally and personally.   Leaving behind the decaying idea that a company will "take care of you" is a persistent myth, although some large organizations do have career navigation tools in place to help with churn and retention. 

Bottom line, peer learning, which has been around since the Clan of the Cave Bear, is even more important today in a disruptive, ever changing world.   ~  Deb

What is Thought Leadership? | OpenView Blog

What is Thought Leadership? | OpenView Blog | Daily Leadership: Everyday Leaders | Scoop.it

What is thought leadership? It’s a question that I recently asked myself after reading about Michigan’s Lake Superior State University’s annual list of overused words and phrases that students deem worthy of banishment from the English language. Among the offenders in 2011 were some tried-and-true favorites (ginormous and man cave to name a couple), as well as relative newcomers to our daily vernacular like occupy (as in Zuccotti Park) and the new normal, a darling of Wall Street since the financial crisis.

 

All in all it’s not a bad list, but it seems to me that our friends at LSSU missed an obvious target. I’m talking about 17 letters that can be combined to form what has become a ubiquitous and, frankly, increasingly cliché term: thought leadership...

Luigi Cappel's curator insight, November 2, 2013 3:27 PM

To me the thought leader is the one who promotes thought in others. It's not about having the best ideas, because that is always subjective, but getting people to think who otherwise might not be bothering, in positive directions that are helpful and relevant, is leadership.

 

Are you a thought leader? Do you like to stimulate other people, or share your ideas. What do you do about it. Obviously you're reading this. Do you have a blog, do you present at events? What are you passionate about?
