3 Ways To Strengthen Your Bench Of Next Generation Leaders

3 Ways To Strengthen Your Bench Of Next Generation Leaders | Management | Scoop.it
The value of a life is always measured by how much of it is given away. At the end of one’s life, we celebrate the selflessness not the title, status, or accumulation. Selflessness is what makes our lives truly bigger than ourselves. If your leadership is all about you, it ends when you come to an end but if your leadership isn’t all about you, it will live beyond you.

Why Your Employees Need to be Both Engaged AND Aligned

Why Your Employees Need to be Both Engaged AND Aligned | Management | Scoop.it

I appreciate a good analogy, especially when it comes to terms that can be defined in multiple ways. Employee engagement and alignment are a good example. Here’s a brilliant analogy from a local business journal:

donhornsby's curator insight, August 31, 2014 10:21 AM

(From the article): Employee engagement is essential to an organization’s success, and alignment is arguably even more important. As an example, consider a 400-meter relay race. The winning team carries the baton past the finish line first. The direction of the finish line represents alignment between employees and the organization’s vision and goals. The speed of each runner is akin to engagement. To win, every runner in the team must run fast (i.e. be engaged with the organization) but also run in the direction of the next runner or the finish line (i.e. be aligned).”

The moment we think of human beings as being capital we monetize people. For that matter, thinking of anything as capital monetizes that phenomena. It abstracts and visualizes the phenomenon shredding its sense of being. We need to get back to thinking of the world as a phenomenal place we co-inhabit.

Jacqui Hogan's curator insight, October 16, 2014 10:51 AM

2 Zappos in one week! Earlier this week at an HR forum, I met someone who had a tour of Zappos a few weeks earlier. They came away full of praise for their management approach - especially their open attitute to empowerment. Is their approach a step too far? While it may look very open and flexible, it is quite bureacratic with it's 'circles' . I worry that it is great for those who shout loudly, but not so good for the introverts (or even those who hate loud music).

 

Or do you think you could implement it in your company?
