Netflix's Major HR Innovation: Treating Humans Like People

Doing the common sense thing and treating people like adults are at the heart of Netflix's breakthrough HR policy. McCord believes that most companies fall into a trap of having 97% of their employees doing great work and not needing HR to hold their hands, while 3% of employees absorb HR's time, money, and energy. Netflix's approach: they simply don't hire those people.

Graeme Reid's insight:

 I love this approach, although I can already hear the many excuses why such an approach would not work in our industry.  If you treat people with a complete lack of trust don't be surprised at the behaviour that generates.

How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit

How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

There have been many letdowns in my life and valleys along the way. I was promised promotions from managers that never eventuated, pay raises that I never saw, and opportunities that never came.

 

Today, however, I am so happy and where I wanted to be. I am financially blessed and in love with life. However, life was not always so happy. What are the keys to reaching your goals and being where you want to be?

 

1. Commit to give 100% in all you do.

From the first time in Grade 1 when teams and captains were chosen at school, I wanted to be the captain. I have always wanted to be financially successful and be a leader. Maybe it is because we were so poor as a family that I had to ride my old bike every morning to the bakery to buy 20 cents worth of 2-day-old chook (chicken) bread, which we ended up eating, or maybe because we could not afford real milk or butter.

The Reasons People Don’t Follow Their Passions, and What You Can Do

The Reasons People Don’t Follow Their Passions, and What You Can Do | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

It's pretty hard to pursue something you aren't sure about. If you can't seem to find something you'd love doing, you're not alone. Many of us struggle with what our own ideas of what a "dream job" would be. If you feel a little like you're just floating along the river of life, it might be a good idea to grab a paddle and start exploring uncharted waters. Take a step out of your comfort zone and experience new things. When you're stuck in your bubble, you're afraid of being uncomfortable. Branch out and see what's out there. Eventually you'll encounter something that gets you excited.

4 Steps To Getting What You Want By Chris Gaborit

4 Steps To Getting What You Want By Chris Gaborit | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Is there something you want so badly that it hurts? Is there a secret goal that you have? Do you wish there was a way to get what you want?

If you answered “yes,” then remember these four tips to make your dreams a reality.

1. You Are Drawn To That Thing That You Look At The Most

If you dig down deep into your innermost thoughts, you will discover that the thing you concentrate on the most is the same thing drawing your conscious mind.


At the age of 24, I was working for a nonprofit organization earning a pitiful salary. There was no room for promotion, salary increase, or ever being wealthy. However, one day I heard a man speak about goal setting. This teaching changed my life forever.

Multitasking Damages Your Brain And Career, New Studies Suggest

Multitasking Damages Your Brain And Career, New Studies Suggest | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

You’ve likely heard that multitasking is problematic, but new studies show that it kills your performance and may even damage your brain.

 

A Special Skill?


But what if some people have a special gift for multitasking? The Stanford researchers compared groups of people based on their tendency to multitask and their belief that it helps their performance. They found that heavy multitaskers—those who multitask a lot and feel that it boosts their performance—were actually worse at multitasking than those who like to do a single thing at a time.

Well I have to say this would be a home run. Throughout high school, my jobs and even college, I have noticed that multitasking has become somewhat of an acquired trait. This article speaks on some key points that relate not only to PR practitioners, but aims towards students as well. Staying focus on one task at a given moment can help reduce the "noise" in your head; Keeping that in mind, working on one project at a time also provides you with a window for a more accurate end result

The Business of Behavioral Economics

The Business of Behavioral Economics | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

You've done everything—endured diets, purged your freezer of Ben & Jerry's, and educated yourself on fat, sugar, and calories. Yet, you can't manage to lose weight.

 

What's wrong with you? According to standard economic theory, which gives humans (perhaps too much) credit for making rational choices, those efforts should be enough to change your behavior. If you know the consequences but still get fat, you must want to be overweight.

 

“Losing $100 is more painful than gaining $100 is pleasurable”
