These culture critiques are as common as complaints about the weather — and about as effective. How frequently have you seen high-minded aspirations to “change the culture” actually manage to modify the way that people behave and the way in which they work?

Corporate culture is an essential aspect of business life. Many companies are taken by surprise by how difficult it can be to implement changes to it. The key lies in combining organizational goals with a few critical behaviors and focus on shifting those rather than trying to change the world.

Is this the biggest blind spot for CEOs today? | Management | Scoop.it

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.

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%).

Today’s Best Leaders Are Reflective and Vulnerable | Management | Scoop.it
Lagging performance is among the most glaring indications something is awry in an organization. Then there are the quieter, less splashy but still foreboding signals: a culture of distrust, the uncomfortable undiscussables, staff disengagement, disorganization — all of which indicate a disconnect that could cost a business tremendously if not addressed.
 

When confronted with a problem, or better yet, before it becomes a problem, leadership consultants Bob Anderson and Bill Adams recommend organizational leaders first turn inward to drive lasting change.

7 Tips For Managing High-Impact Teams

7 Tips For Managing High-Impact Teams | Management | Scoop.it

Most business leaders can agree that teamwork is important for getting anything done. But the agreement usually stops there. In many cases, the company's immediate needs take over, and there's seldom enough time for deep thought about how to actually develop an effective team.

Groups of people are often thrown together and told to get to work. And while many organizations do well when it comes to a team's technical aspects, like bringing in people with the right expertise and establishing deadlines, the less quantifiable, "people-building" element tends to get lost. With a little effort and foresight, though, managers and team leaders can avoid some of the most common problems plaguing teams.

Principals in these schools must leverage best practices to retain their best teachers and other staff!
