11 Mistakes Successful People Never Make

11 Mistakes Successful People Never Make | Management | Scoop.it

If you're not happy with your life, either personally or professionally, take a quick look in the mirror. The problem may not be lack of opportunity, or education, or capital, or connections--the culprit could be you.

The difficulty could lie in what you believe--and what you do.

Simplify Your Analytics Strategy

Simplify Your Analytics Strategy | Management | Scoop.it

While the interests in analytics and resulting benefits are increasing by the day, some businesses are challenged by the complexity and confusion that analytics can generate. Companies can get stuck trying to analyze all that’s possible and all that they could do through analytics, when they should be taking that next step of recognizing what’s important and what they should be doing — for their customers, stakeholders, and employees. Discovering real business opportunities and achieving desired outcomes can be elusive.To overcome this, companies should pursue a simpler path to uncovering the insight in their data and making insight-driven decisions that add value. Following are steps that we have seen work in a number of companies to simplify their analytics strategy and generate insight that leads to real outcomes:

Persuasion Depends Mostly on the Audience

Persuasion Depends Mostly on the Audience | Management | Scoop.it

 

Dale Carnegie once noted that the only way to get someone to do something is to get that person to want to do something. Thus all persuasion is ultimately self-persuasion.In fact, a great deal of psychological research indicates that, much like Dale Carnegie suggested, the key triggers of persuasion take place in the receiver of the message, whereas persuaders typically account for less than 10% of the effect. What, then, are the main psychological forces that explain when and why we are likely to be persuaded by others? Here’s what the science actually shows:

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.

The top business books of 2014

The top business books of 2014 | Management | Scoop.it

A good business book jolts our mind, teaching us something we didn’t know or weren’t sure would work. Ideally, it flows smoothly, the concepts easy to grasp, illuminated and solidified by enticing examples. By that score, two books stand out from the pack I have been through this year: Fewer, Bigger, Bolder and How Google Works. Each challenges us to change. Each is eminently practical. Each presents notions that have worked effectively. And each is a charming read. In a year of many meritorious books, those were at the top of my 2014 list of best management books:

6 Leadership Development Trends for 2015

6 Leadership Development Trends for 2015 | Management | Scoop.it
Before we go on to unveil the future trends, let’s have a look at what was happening on the leadership training scene this year. Among the most innovative leadership strategies being taught all over the world was the so-called “endogenous resourcing”, standing for the myriad techniques for unlocking employees’ hidden potential.

Apart from this trend, we saw the rise of management policies that foster sustainability and a slow transition from the autocratic, control-and-command management style to its more democratic variety – both demonstrating how the human side of business has become a growing factor in the success of leadership as employed by many global brands.

Having examined the present, let’s now direct our gaze to the future – here are 6 innovative leadership development practices that we will see spreading in the upcoming year.

Wow, here is a provocative statement. 

 

Our mercantile minds have become so optimized to derive maximum margins that we tend to forget that it all starts with us, ahem, humans.

But why trust me on this. Just google Steve Jobs and/ or Richard Branson, or a myriad of other thinkers about what they have to say.

 

In the beginning there are neurons firing in each or our brains deriving a new idea or insight. Everything else comes later. So, value your humans. And, btw, they are not "resources" they are creative agents of change - if allowed to be.
