Why Employee Development is Important

Why Employee Development is Important | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Think of the last time you really felt personally aligned with your job or the mission of your organization. Or maybe try picturing the last time you felt both fulfilled and challenged by the projects and tasks you were charged with completing. When was the last time, if ever, you had a clear direction for career development with defined goals? Did you ever have a job where your boss met with you more than once per year to review your performance?

Employee development is vital to make a priority.

CultureAmp’s answer to the question, “Do people leave managers, not companies?”

No, people are more likely to leave companies that don’t provide them with good development opportunities and leadership. Even good managers are likely to struggle to retain key employees and manage team retention rates if these things are not looked after.

Why Saying This Four-Letter Word Can Transform Your Productivity

Why Saying This Four-Letter Word Can Transform Your Productivity | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Perfectionists are often reminded that "done is better than perfect." But it turns out there’s another reason we should all try to create more "done" moments in our workdays.

Saying the word done can help you get more accomplished on your to-do list. "Telling ourselves that we’re done creates not only an emotional reaction but a physiological response as well," says Leslie Sherlin, a psychologist, neuroperformance specialist, and the cofounder of the brain-training company SenseLabs.

These seven proven ways are important for us because few of us are ready to speak out in meetings, few of us are ready to take up challenging work, few of us believe about showcasing our achievments and some of us don't take credit for exemplary work. In a world of cut throat competition, one has to speak out for oneself, and one has to step in before a totally unrelated person takes credit to a job done well!

Induire un changement n'est pas seulement dans les mains du boss. Nous sommes tous des leaders, en mesure d'influencer les autres à changer. Juste exiger ne suffit pas. Il faut obtenir le buy-in et y aller pas à pas. L'article illustre ceci avec un exemple.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 12, 9:59 AM

(From the article): Whether you’re buying new printers, reducing bias…or merging departments, revising reporting relationships, or anything else…consider using the power of baby steps in your change initiative. By investing just a bit of up-front effort, you’ll almost certainly achieve stronger and more widespread support.

Jason Leong's curator insight, April 26, 6:47 PM

"If Brian’s presentation started with a big slide proclaiming “All of you are biased”—that is way outside of this engineer’s OK zone. It’s in her latitude of rejection—or the “reject zone.” This is the crucial point: When attitudes are too far from our OK zone, we not only don’t buy them—we actively retrench against them. We marshal all of our resources to oppose the person making the argument."

There are many ways to express humility — you might welcome feedback, admit mistakes, or simply treat others as equals. Your employees will view those as signs of strength, not weakness.

The 3 Things That Stop Most People From Achieving Their Goals

The 3 Things That Stop Most People From Achieving Their Goals | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

How many goals have you set in your life? A hundred? Ten thousand? Even more?

How many of these goals have you actually achieved?

If you're like most people, this second number is going to be a fraction of the first. A big reason is that as soon as you set a goal, three things emerge to stop you. But most of us don't even realize what they are, and as a result, we are just left with our unaccomplished goal and an unshakable feeling of failure.

What if you could not only identify these obstacles but also learn to welcome them? Well, the good new is that you can....

Identify and overcome these three obstacles to achieve any goal you set.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 20, 3:35 AM

This is an important aritcle which will help you learn to achieve your goals by first addressing the obstacles that prevent you from doing so. The first obstacle is the baggage of considerations that you carry on your shoulders, including negative thoughts that kill initiative at the outset. The second obstacle is formed of your fears, the fear of failure, the fear of stepping out of one's comfort zone, and the third obstacle is formed of roadblocks. Roadblocks unlike the first two are not mental obstacles, rather they are external obstacles like for example your flight getting delayed, or  an important employee leaving the organisation midway! Well there are ways of getting around roadblocks and these include having a plan B or plan C, planning for the unexpected, and anyway having a positive attitude might help you surmount even the toughest roadblocks that fate may throw upon you!

Jessica Urquhart's curator insight, April 21, 11:15 PM

I have learnt that when dealing with human beings, nothing is set in stone. I like that the writer has taken his own experiences and believes that most people have the same values and beliefs. I feel that there are many factors that get in the way of achieving goals and this is no different to safety culture. In the future I'd like to see businesses understand all the varied types of people that their management systems must adapt to. In history there seems to be only one type of management system and is widely misunderstood by the majority of people within the organisation. Understanding personal values, goals and behaviours should be the foundation of any management system.

Roy Sheneman, PhD's curator insight, April 8, 10:05 AM

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is arguably the single most important predictor of leader success. It is all about being able to understand and control yourself while being aware of others. 

Kudos's curator insight, April 10, 10:26 AM

The best leaders are always ones that can relate to their team, keep a calm demeanour in crisis or conflict and work to support their team to help make them better verses dictating or blaming for what is wrong. The best Managers look for what their team does right and recognizes those behaviours and results. Managing people well is much harder then it looks, recognizing people for what they do well and how they contribute is a great place to start to be a good emotional intelligent leader.
