Leaders have followers... {periode}

MCH's insight:

"It always strives me how common sense those points linked to management and leadership are, and yet, those can be terribly difficult to unfold timely and wisely. You never have only one dimension as in the above videos. Life is more complex. People are observing the leader on each single dimension and from this observation, form a complete opinion."

"To be or not to be… Evil"

MCH's insight:

A program manager will coordinate the project managers and should aim to minimize the potential overlapping.
But worst… what about the public sector? Ouch, by definition: Evil?

Notes on Change Management and Fair Process

Notes on Change Management and Fair Process | Management | Scoop.it

The argument is that because of their theories, economists assume that people are maximizers (as oppose to satisfier) of utility. Meaning that only the outcome matters. And this has somewhat translated into management theories.

MCH's insight:

Is someone anyway happy if the outcome of a change is fair, and what is the needed degree of fairness in a process?

MCH's insight:

"...il faut plus d’intelligence pour travailler moins et mieux que pour travailler beaucoup et n’importe comment..."

 

Oui, c'est certainement un trend (=> travailler plus pour pas faire plus...).

Je me souviens de mon temps à Barcelone (2001-2002) où tous mes camarades de Master m'expliquaient qu'il n'était pas imaginable pour eux de quitter le bureau avant leurs responsables. Ils m'expliquaient que la relation de travail était généralement univoque. =>"Moi chef, patron, leader, etc... je te donne un travail, alors toi, force vive soit serviable..., et mieux, soit servile...".

Même si j'étais nouveau sur le marché du travail à cette époque, j'avais néanmoins déjà perdu une certaine naïveté vierge face aux relations entre les acteurs du marché du travail; mais Il me semblait; que la relation était plus équilibrée en Suisse.

Peut-être que ce temps est révolu?

CICR: à l’école des hauts fonctionnaires

CICR: à l’école des hauts fonctionnaires | Management | Scoop.it
L’Etat de Genève regorge d’anciens délégués du CICR. La Croix-Rouge fonctionnerait-elle comme version genevoise de l’ENA, la haute école française de cadres supérieurs?
MCH's insight:

«La Croix-Rouge est sans aucun doute une école d’excellence», confirme Fabien Smadja, directeur RH à la Banque Mirabaud & Cie qui a notamment travaillé avec les formateurs des futurs délégués. «La sélection est double, très approfondie à l’entrée; elle a d’ailleurs été refondue au début des années 2000, comprenant entre dix et quinze jours d’exercices pratiques avec des mises en situation poussées. Une seconde partie s’effectue sur le terrain.»
