Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour

Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

The good news is that even some of the most strained relationships can be repaired. In fact, a negative relationship turned positive can be a very strong one. “Going through difficult experiences can be the makings of the strongest, most resilient relationships,” says Susan David, a founder of the Harvard/McLean Institute of Coaching and author of the HBR article, “Emotional Agility.” The bad news is that fixing a relationship takes serious effort.

 

“Most people just lower their expectations because it’s easier than dealing with the real issues at hand,” says Brian Uzzi, professor of leadership and organizational change at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and author of the HBR article, “Make Your Enemies Your Allies.” But, he says, the hard work is often worth it, especially in a work environment where productivity and performance are at stake. Here’s how to transform a work relationship that’s turned sour.

Sometimes you get stuck in a rut with someone at work — a boss, a coworker, a direct report. Perhaps there’s bad blood between you or you simply haven’t been getting along. What can you do to turn the relationship around? Is it possible to start anew?

The Introvert's Guide to Great Presenting | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) are often among the most boring members of organisational leadership teams when it comes to communication. Stepping up on stage to deliver the numbers after the CEO has given a back-slapping, rousing speech about progress and the next year’s strategic priorities, the crowd returns to silence as they sleepily settle down for the CFOs part about how much money is being made or spent.

What Is Learning? 12 Principles of Peer-Led, Connected, Interactive Education

What Is Learning?  12 Principles of Peer-Led, Connected, Interactive Education | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
Here are a baker's dozen of the main principles of connected learning. As you will see, they form an “ecosystem,” where each component influences and changes the others. These apply in any field (although differently in each field). These principles draw from constructivist, engaged “public educators” (Stuart Hall’s term)  going back as far as Lev Vygotsky and John Dewey and including Howard Gardner, Franz Fanon, Jacques Rancière, and digital pedagogy theorists including Yochai Benkler, Howard Rhinegold,  Mizuko Ito, and many others.

Oscar Berg: Sharing is our competitive advantage

Oscar Berg: Sharing is our competitive advantage | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
What made Homo sapiens different from the Neanderthals was most likely our social abilities and behaviors, how we behave as a collective. As a human species we have always been very focused on communicating and transferring knowledge. Not only from one person to another, but also parent to child. This way, the next generation can build further on the collective knowledge of the previous generation.

Crowd Sourced Accreditation to shake up the staid world of traditional education says ALISON CEO

Crowd Sourced Accreditation to shake up the staid world of traditional education says ALISON CEO | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

IRISHMAN Mike Feerick likes to stir things up, writes Andrew Trounson in The Australian. He was running the world’s first massive open online courses before the MOOC acronym was born.

And, unlike most MOOCs, his free online education site ALISON is making money.

But an even bigger disruptive force is on the way.

Feerick calls it crowd-sourced accreditation and says it will pose a threat to vested interests among established educational institutions, where accreditation has long been seen as the ace in the hand.

Negotiating Deals From a Position of Powerlessness

Negotiating Deals From a Position of Powerlessness | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Negotiators are strongly advised to identify viable alternatives that they can fall back on during a negotiation. After all, alternatives give negotiators the power to extract more concessions from their opponent. The better your BATNA (Best Alternative To a Negotiated Agreement) the less dependent you are on the other negotiator for finalising a deal. In fact, past research has shown that negotiators with better alternatives generally end up with superior outcomes because alternatives offer the luxury to walk away from the bargaining table.

Knowledge is Personal!

Knowledge is Personal! | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
Knowledge management, for me, is personal.

A big conceit of the knowledge management (KM) field is that knowledge can be transferred, but unlike information or data, it cannot. Knowledge is personal. While knowledge cannot really be transferred, our experiences can be shared. Perhaps that is why we love stories. They are a glimpse into others’ knowledge, more nuanced than any other communication medium.
