What It Really Takes to Be an Artist: MacArthur Genius Teresita Fernández’s Magnificent Commencement Address

What It Really Takes to Be an Artist: MacArthur Genius Teresita Fernández’s Magnificent Commencement Address | Mentoring & Coaching | Scoop.it
"Being an artist is not just about what happens when you are in the studio. The way you live, the people you choose to love and the way you
Luís Cochofel's insight:

I must thank my Friend Kare Anderson for having shared this with us and I'll just copy the presentation she used to share this article as it clearly touches its essence:

"Unconventional commencement speech, relevant to us non-artists too who strive to optimize our singular talent and vision: “…You are about to enter the much more difficult phase of unlearning everything you have learned in college, of questioning it, redefining it, challenging it, and reinventing it to call it your own. More than in any other vocation, being an artist means always starting from nothing. Our work as artists is courageous and scary. There is no brief that comes along with it, no problem solving that’s given as a task… An artist’s work is almost entirely inquiry based and self-regulated. It is a fragile process of teaching oneself to work alone, and focusing on how to hone your quirky creative obsessions so that they eventually become so oddly specific that they can only be your own. “ From the inimitable Maria Popova, citing Teresita Fernández"

New Research Unlocks the Secret of Employee Recognition

New Research Unlocks the Secret of Employee Recognition | Mentoring & Coaching | Scoop.it

Bersin has completed a comprehensive research project on employee recognition (saying "thank you") and the results are really astounding: organizations that give regular thanks to their employees far out perform those that don't.

 

What their research found was that tenure-based rewards systems have virtually no impact on organizational performance. It turns out that many of these tenure-based rewards programs are really legacy programs from the turn of the century when labor unions forced management to give employees “service awards” and hourly raises for tenure. Most large companies still have these programs today, yet only 58% of employees even know such programs exist. So for the most part they aren’t creating much value.

 

On other hand, our research did find that modern, re-engineered recognition programs can have a huge impact on business performance.


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Luís Cochofel's insight:

Believe me or not... 

 

Yesterday I've finallized a manual designed to support my view on the future of organizational development for the social economy entities, to which i've given the name of 'Engagement Management', where I've assembled these four tools as the most important any organization should embrace:

 

1. Strategy (to control or to develop?)

2. The importance of Employee RECOGNITION

3. Team development meetings using the principle of fostering participation and creativity

4. Self-assessment as the best way to allow indivividual, thus groupal, growth

Did it also sound to you as if today's scoop.it articles I've received were not by chance these particular ones I'm now sharing?

Brian Martin's curator insight, February 6, 2014 9:01 AM

It's time to transform traditional long service recognition programs.  Service awards are anchored in the past with union based origins that value tenure instead of achievement.  Hierarchy anointed programs are suspect and often administratively burdensome to administer.  Peer to peer programs aligned with company vision, values, accompanied by story telling, will accelerate your company's transformation and  enhance employee engagement.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 4, 2014 1:22 PM

Here's what I think is important about this article: if you want to be a wildly influential leader that gets stuff done, here are the 6 things to pay attention to.


Now the question is -- how do you actually do these 6 things? One path is learning to tell effective and compelling stories. Stories that move people to action because of their carefully crafted endings (see our new book Business Storytelling for Dummies for how to do that). Then check out Paul Smith's book Lead With A Story on the variety of stories leaders need to tell 


Building story skills will help you show your strength, connect empathically, inspire with vision, spark taking action, and instill confidence -- everything this article identifies.


Dig into storytelling. Build those skills. Doing so, you will be come a compelling leader.


Thank you to fellow curator Anne Leong for originally finding and sharing this post!

Every once in a while, an amazing leader surfaces, one capable of moving people to action. This is not just a leader who gets people to think. This is a leader who is truly compelling, who can get people to change course and give of themselves.

As work gets more complex, 6 rules to simplify | Mentoring & Coaching | Scoop.it
Why do people feel so miserable and disengaged at work? Because today's businesses are increasingly and dizzyingly complex -- and traditional pillars of management are obsolete, says Yves Morieux. So, he says, it falls to individual employees to navigate the rabbit's warren of interdependencies. In this energetic talk, Morieux offers six rules for "smart simplicity." (Rule One: Understand what your colleagues actually do.)

The next generation Organisation: The Intuitive Organisation

The next generation Organisation: The Intuitive Organisation | Mentoring & Coaching | Scoop.it

An environment of rapid change will warrant that organisations be modelled to be intuitive so as to better prepare themselves for threats and opportunities.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Luís Cochofel's insight:

That there will be changes is the only fact that never changes.

This article remebered me, again, a poem by Luís de Camões that was stating this same thought some 500 years ago:

 

‘Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades,

Muda-se o ser, muda-se a confiança;

Todo o mundo é composto de mudança,

Tomando sempre novas qualidades.

 

Continuamente vemos novidades,

Diferentes em tudo da esperança;

Do mal ficam as mágoas na lembrança,

E do bem, se algum houve, as saudades.


O tempo cobre o chão de verde manto,

Que já coberto foi de neve fria,

E em mim converte em choro o doce canto.


E, afora este mudar-se cada dia,

Outra mudança faz de mor espanto:

Que não se muda já como soía.’

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, February 7, 2014 11:56 PM

An environment of rapid change needs to warrant that organisations be modeled to be intuitive, so all members of such organisation has to better prepare themselves for threats and opportunities ahead.

1.  What do you look out for?

2. Where do you start?
