For the better part of my teaching career, these three existed. As School managers began to tell me what my work was without any sense of knowing what it was, these were eroded. We each need a job with a capital J and we need to stop doing the work of others.

Is Self-Doubt Holding You Back? 5 Ways To Build Confidence And Banish Doubt

Is Self-Doubt Holding You Back? 5 Ways To Build Confidence And Banish Doubt | Management | Scoop.it

The problem with self-doubt is that the fear it creates stops us from living the lives we most want and changing the things we don’t.  How?  Fear keeps us living small and stuck in jobs that don’t fulfill us but feel safe.  But is there really anything safe about living a life where you feel disengaged, disillusioned or desperate to be doing something else? of course not. The truth is that who you are is not your doubts. The key to banishing them isn’t to wish them away, but to take action in their presence.

 

It’s easy to mislead ourselves into thinking that if we just had the success we wanted, then we’d never doubt ourselves again and ooze the confidence we see in others.  But it actually works in reverse.

Aligning strategy with culture

Aligning strategy with culture | Management | Scoop.it

Whether the strategic focus is to respond swiftly to customer needs or to achieve manufacturing excellence, organisational culture is an important enabler in achieving business success. There is little consensus, however, on what culture actually means. In our view, culture is what beliefs and values people share. It is the glue which holds people together and determines how they respond or behave. Culture serves as a source of competitive advantage because of this perspective.

Jonas Schlyter's curator insight, September 9, 4:56 PM

You have to understand the importance of culture to gain competitive advantages, and you must align the culture with your strategy. And, you must have in mind that the culture is not tangible, except for the artifacts which are results of the influence of all key elements (e.g. strategy, people, processes, sturcture and rewards) of an organization and its environment.

 

By making changes in the key elements you can influence changes in the culture. But first I recommend you to understand what culture you have and want culture you want. With help by models describing different cultures you can get support and inspiration when analyzing the current culture and defining a new culture vision. Spiral Dynamics is an interesting and dynamic model of human development and development of social network, society or company.

 

Keep also in mind that

1. Organizational culture is optimized only when the key elements are aligned and cooperate to influence to desired behaviour of its members

2. Influencing a culture is a process that takes time and makes demand on distinct and consistent leadership

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | Management | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...

Ten things a good map can teach you about strategy

Ten things a good map can teach you about strategy | Management | Scoop.it

There are copious definitions of strategy from numerous pundits in the field - some definitions reminiscent of everything and the kitchen sink.

 Strategy is relatively new, where it has progressed over the years, following one of two paths: simplification or complication. Kenneth Andrews, was an American academic who, along with Igor Ansoff (of Ansoff Matrix fame) and Alfred D. Chandler, are credited with founding the concept of modern business strategy. One would expect Andrew's definition to be somewhat broad, as this was a new field. And it is. However, I have seen its unfortunate use by some universities today where it is used as the standard definition of strategy. It is not - it is the first definition to emerge in a new field.

This schematic history of human civilization reflects a growing complexity of the collective behavior of human organizations. Some will see in the graphics what intuitively seems correct, namely that areas of grey an lateral connections matter increasingly more:

"The internal structure of organizations changed and is changing, whether this is built in formally or not.  Going from the large branching ratio hierarchies of ancient civilizations, through decreasing branching ratios of massive hierarchical bureaucracies, to hybrid systems where lateral connections appear to be more important than the hierarchy."


Without new means to connect these groups the isolation and silos make it impossible to overcome local optimums:


"As the importance of lateral interactions increases, the boundaries between subsystems become porous. The increasing collective complexity also is manifest in the increasing specialization and diversity of professions."

There’s probably not a sales book I haven’t read and there is probably not a sales book that doesn't have some value, but yet there isn’t one that I finish saying, “wow, that was great.” You see my problem is that these books come from the same starting point: A sale is the exchange of money for a product or service that results from an interaction. The process is your ability to engage a prospect on a personal level.

 

My starting point begins with discovery of your Sales Assassin Master Distinctive Nature to Achieve – Your SAM DNA. Your SAM DNA is your ability to achieve success while overcoming failure. The SAM will find success through his or her passion, dedication and courage to overcome the great challenges of the toughest market place and the toughest competition.

 

Through my book you must find and define your SAM DNA.

5 Signs Your Employees Dislike You

5 Signs Your Employees Dislike You | Management | Scoop.it

In addition to all of your achievements, you're sure that you're a great boss. After all, your leadership skills have helped you climb the ladder of success. But some of the world's top companies succeed in spite of poor leadership, a result of great products or concepts rather than motivated team members.

 

According to entrepreneurial counselor Michelle McQuaid, bad bosses cost businesses $360 billion in lost productivity every year. The stress caused by difficult supervisors can negatively affect an employee's overall health and workplace morale, eventually driving him or her out the door. Since losing one employee costs a business tens of thousands of dollars or more, your business will eventually suffer financially if you can't keep employee loss at a minimum.
