Is it possible to be a fair boss to someone you'd avoid eating lunch with — or must you learn to like every member of your team?

In short, learn to take every thought captive!  "The stories in our head are courtesy of our subconscious mind, which has been programmed since the moment of our conception. But without going into the technicality of how our subconscious mind is programmed, what matters is that we make our own reality."

Is This Why There Are Fewer Women In Business?

Is This Why There Are Fewer Women In Business? | Management | Scoop.it
One study might have discovered the reason for the business gender gap -- morality.
Lauren Herrera's insight:

Given that no one does anything about the fact that women and men are treated differently in the business world, is unethical givent that ethcis is the choice between what is right and wrong. It is morally wrong to have women underrepresented in the MBA program and that woman are becoming discouraged to go into the business world.

Social Media Ethics: What Your Brand Needs To Know

Social Media Ethics: What Your Brand Needs To Know | Management | Scoop.it

An effective social media strategy injects human blood into a brand and creates an opportunity for businesses to develop deep relationships with consumers. When done right, social media helps tell a story that consumers are happy to escape into. But when you don’t adhere to social media ethics, customers may see your brand as something to escape from.

Because social media is still in its Wild West days, brands are trying everything under the sun to stake their claim on the digital frontier and attract attention from consumers. The problem is that some brands can’t distinguish between “edgy” and “out of line.”

 

In his article “Ethics and the 5 Deadly Sins of Social Media,” Forbes contributor David Vinjamuri writes, “As trust is the prized currency of social media, ethical lapses or oversights can be deadly for the brand.”

Lauren Herrera's insight:

This shows how social media can either make or break your brand or business. Brands are doing whatever they can to attract attention, but sadly some brands take it to far over the edge and loose all customer interest.

Core Beliefs and Culture - Deloitte Chairman’s Survey Findings | Management | Scoop.it

In a recent 2012 report from Deloitte, "Culture in the Workplace," reveals some encouraging findings about workplace culture:

94% of executives and 88% of employees believe a distinct workplace culture is important to business success83% of executives and 84% of employees rank having engaged and motivated employees as the top factor that substantially contributes to a company's successThere is a correlation between employees who say their organization has a clearly articulated and lived culture and those that say they are "happy at work" and feel "valued by [their] company".

 

There was also a disconnect between executives and employees about how that workplace culture is expressed and executed:

Executives have an inflated sense of their workplace culture, when compared to employees, according to significant differentials in their responses to questions about how culture is expressed in their organizationsOnly 19% of executives and 15% of employees believe strongly that their culture is widely upheld within their own organizations

Matt Damon explains non-financial motivations and the education sector – Boing Boing

In this brief video, Matt Damon is quizzed by a reporter who claims that he's a good actor because he knows he'd be fired if he did a bad job, while teachers, with job security, have no such incentive. He persuasively lambastes the reporter, arguing that the reasons people do things -- especially "shitty salary" jobs like teaching (but also arts careers, which have a very low chance of succeeding) -- are much more nuanced than a mere job-security-incentive "MBA" model would suggest.

It's a very illuminating example of a clash of ideologies. Damon, after all, had no "rational" business becoming an actor, since he was almost entirely certain to fail. Now that he is a multi-millionaire, he has no "rational" reason to continue acting, because he's assured of financial security forever. Clearly, Damon is someone whose lifelong incentives are not about "job security." Rather, his motivations are vocational -- he does this because it fulfills him.

And that's the case with most of the teachers I know. The important thing about a vocational model of incentives is that it can be undermined by the "rational" model preached by those who accuse teachers of sloth created by their "job security." That is, when you go around calling teachers featherbedding losers who only do the job because it's so cushy, you scare away all those people for whom the dignity of the vocation provides the low-cost workforce upon which the educational sector depends.
