AleksBlumentals's curator insight, July 8, 2014 4:53 AM

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."

How to Develop a Great Small Business Marketing Strategy

How to Develop a Great Small Business Marketing Strategy | Management | Scoop.it

All successful businesses have a clear marketing strategy that makes everything more effective. Here are 5 keys to a great small business marketing strategy.

Jean-Guy Frenette's insight:

 

As a small business owner you are probably very good at implementing a range of tactics in your quest to acquire more customers or clients. Unfortunately, if the tactics you choose to deploy are not aligned to a well thought out and clearly defined small business marketing strategy, your tactics will fail and the effort expended will be wasted. Remember strategy should always precede the development of any tactics to achieve the required outcome, and you should always develop your marketing strategy (using this excellent guide is a good starting point) to the fullest extent possible before moving to the "how are we going to get there" stage.

7 Valuable Skills That Top Leaders and High Achievers Have Mastered

7 Valuable Skills That Top Leaders and High Achievers Have Mastered | Management | Scoop.it
1. A well-developed personal philosophy

Successful leaders know what their philosophy is; they understand their thinking and their reasoning. A clear philosophy allows you to set your expectations and articulate your definition of success so you can set a clear path to your goals. It prepares you for an extraordinary destiny.

2. Undeniable persistence

Edison failed 2,000 times before he discovered electricity. John Chambers overcame dyslexia to build Cisco. People who are successful never quit, and people who succeed never give up. When failure is never an option, you don't give up. You find another contact, another way, another point of entry, and you keep trying until you accomplish what you have set out to do. Persistence means picking yourself up every day and going after what you want without allowing anything to get in your way.

Cyber security needs to become a top priority for CEOs.  In a world of fast-moving technological developments, CEOs are expected to keep up with the latest innovations, but are they doing enough to protect their companies from the downside of the internet? KPMG International recently surveyed more than 1,200 chief executives from some of the world’s largest companies in an attempt to find out their biggest concerns. Despite the obvious benefits that technological advances bring to companies, business leaders are facing fresh challenges as cyber criminals find ever more sophisticated ways to launch attacks against their organizations.

Manage Your Emotional Culture

Manage Your Emotional Culture | Management | Scoop.it

Before leaving work each day, employees at Ubiquity Retirement + Savings press a button in the lobby. They’re not punching out—not in the traditional sense, anyway. They’re actually registering their emotions. They have five buttons to choose from: a smiley face if they felt happy at work that day, a frowny face if they felt sad, and so on.

This may sound like an HR gimmick (“See? Management cares how you feel!”) or an instrument of forced satisfaction (“The team with the most smiley faces wins!”). But it’s neither. Ubiquity is using the data it collects to understand what motivates employees—to learn what makes them feel a sense of belonging and excitement at work. Other organizations are starting to do the same. Some use apps that record how much fun people are having. Some hire technology consultants who specialize in the monthly, weekly, daily, or even hourly tracking of moods. Unfortunately, though, these organizations are in the minority. Most companies pay little attention to how employees are—or should be—feeling. They don’t realize how central emotions are to building the right culture.

The technology available to entrepreneurs, especially those in the early stages of growing their businesses, is nothing short of amazing considering what was available even just a few years ago (let alone 30 to 40 years ago for those old enough to remember the pre PC days). The problem for business owners is finding enough time to stay abreast of what is available and what each product can do for a business. Articles such as this are a godsend for the busy business owner, and a quick look will determine if you should be using any of these products in your business, to make life just that little easier.

10 Principles of Change Management

10 Principles of Change Management | Management | Scoop.it

Way back when (pick your date), senior executives in large companies had a simple goal for themselves and their organizations: stability. Shareholders wanted little more than predictable earnings growth.

 

1. Address the “human side” systematically. Any significant transformation creates “people issues.” New leaders will be asked to step up, jobs will be changed, new skills and capabilities must be developed, and employees will be uncertain and resistant. Dealing with these issues on a reactive, case-by-case basis puts speed, morale, and results at risk. A formal approach for managing change — beginning with the leadership team and then engaging key stakeholders and leaders — should be developed early, and adapted often as change moves through the organization.

"I’ve definitely noticed some things that great leaders tend to do," says Danielle Harlan, founder and CEO of The Center for Advancing Leadership and Human Potential, an organization that helps individuals and organizations maximize their impact.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 11, 8:33 AM
(From the Article): Harlan notes that the most effective leaders she works with have personal interests and commitments outside of work. They know what works for them to recharge their batteries, whether it’s hiking and spending time outdoors or reading a good book—and they take the time to do those things to keep themselves sharp, including getting enough sleep, she says. In addition to exercising to stay in shape, the benefits of which are well known, Novak takes time in the morning to write down three things for which he is grateful. This helps him manage his "mood elevator," he says. Novak says we make our worst decisions when we're angry and resentful, but make our best decisions when we're grateful. When he feels his mood elevator going to the wrong places, he knows it’s time to take better care of himself or address what’s bothering him.

10 Ways To Spot A Truly Exceptional Employee

10 Ways To Spot A Truly Exceptional Employee | Management | Scoop.it

A recent international study surveyed more than 500 business leaders and asked them what sets great employees apart. The researchers wanted to know why some people are more successful than others at work, and the answers were surprising; leaders chose “personality” as the leading reason.

 

Notably, 78% of leaders said personality sets great employees apart, more than cultural fit (53%) and even an employee’s skills (39%).
