Setting the Agenda, Taking others with you, Doing it the right way #PUREthinking  

donhornsby's curator insight, October 14, 2013 7:21 AM

(From the article): At your company, you are the intergalactic traveler. Your company is the inside and the marketplace is the outside. It's your job as CEO to see opportunities others do not. Most of your organization (with the exception of sales people) tends to focus internally, and it's difficult for them to shift gears to focus externally. Therefore, you are to fill that void. This is not to say that you should not engage and intently listen to your internal employees. This simply means you ultimately are the one who must make the decisions.

I’ve made many mistakes in my time, and the incident which springs to mind, happened only a few years ago.
Sarah Haywood's insight:

We all make mistakes, a gaffe, a bad decision it all happens so easily sometimes. Deciding to learn from our mistakes or let in eat away at you is sometimes the hardest decision. It's at this point where we seem to learn a lot about ourselves. How often to do people conduct self-reflect learning? Is it only when something goes wrong?

Collaboration Is the New Competition

Collaboration Is the New Competition | L&D Building relationships with Leaders | Scoop.it
Five ways to drive large-scale social change by working cooperatively.
Sarah Haywood's insight:

As an Assistant Learning & Development Manager starting to work with Senior Leaders of an organisation, alot here resonates with me and that I can translate in to what I can do to build the relationship.

1. Clearly define what you can do together - clearly articulate how you can add value and make a difference to the business together drives purpose

2. Transcend Parochailism - we could easily slip in to our own agendas, i.e. I could focus on pushing HR's agenda and likewise they maybe focused on the metrics. We need to put aside 'short term interests in pursuit of goals of the group', so together focusing on the possibilities of collaboration would have much greater value to the business.

3. Adapt to data - I need to be able to provide a clear understanding of what the current impact is of learning & development in my Leaders world, so as to understand 'where we are having thr greatest impact and where we need to focus more energy'

4. Feed the field - I absolutely need to feed our relationships with the latest insights on learning and development that I experience or know from out in the world. This constant drip of insight can keep refreshing the thinking and keep us cutting edge.

5. Support the backbone - Keep moving our original vision and purpose forward, ensuring we are always on track. 'Continuously support, nurture and feed the collaborative', I too firmly believe that this will greatly increase the chances of success.

Jeremy Pollard's curator insight, September 16, 2013 9:16 PM

Handling a big deal well starts well before you come into the office. In fact, your core psychological and behavioural styles are formed well back in your childhood. Stress, overwork, tiredness can leave you exposed to being triggered into old patterns of behaviour. Strong ideas on awareness and remediation on this form Brene Brown.

Being Strategic and Creating Strategy Aren’t the Same Thing

Being Strategic and Creating Strategy Aren’t the Same Thing | L&D Building relationships with Leaders | Scoop.it
I recently had the privilege of writing a guest post over at Michael Carty’s XpertHR blog. He’s doing a series called “If I Could Change One Thing about HR…” Excellent input from professionals both within and outside the profession.
Sarah Haywood's insight:

This is absolutely the focus for us in HR. As business partners, and even with my specialism of L&D, it is not enough to drive the 'detailed plan for achieving results' we constantly have to think of the entire business picture and how we can add value.

Listening to heart and head of business, making the connections, seeking, creating opportunities, and being the impetus to enable the whole to thrive.

Be Yourself, but Carefully

Sarah Haywood's insight:

As someone who is learning to establish relationships with Senior Leaders I found this really useful. I often feel awkward about disclosure but absolutely see the benefits. I find with colleagues there feels no pressure to be yourself and building a rapport can feel more natural, whereas with senior leaders the impetus that builds the relationship can be heavily influenced one way or the other, through each engagement you have together. 

Can you really come back from the wrong type of disclosure?
