We all like to be appreciated when we do well, but how many of us fail  to show our own appreciation to our own teams when they do well?

John Michel's curator insight, November 15, 2013 10:51 AM

When you recognize great work several things happen. First, your other employees understand the standards they are being held to for their own production. Second, the recognized employee is re-engaged to perform at an even higher level. Third, you’re creating an environment that cheers on all employees, promising them the work they do is meaningful and worthy of notice.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 15, 2013 1:07 PM

The challenge is that HR departments are contrived aspects of the real life of an organization. The process diminishes humans into resources to be exploited, optimized, and mined. This is hardly the setting that leads to thriving innovative practices. HR departments need to be either brought into the daily mainstream or done away with. Consider in education we have HR people who are not educators. What do they understand about the classroom setting?

The Strength of ‘No Blame Game’ Leadership

The Strength of ‘No Blame Game’ Leadership | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it
When you arrive at the office each morning, you find yourself in a blame-free zone. Your team attacks projects proactively and with confidence. When a problem arises, everyone involved “owns it” and takes corrective action.
Graeme Reid's insight:

Great article.  If you have ever worked in an organisation with a blame culture you will recognise the behaviours.  It takes a strong and inspirational leader to change that culture, but what a difference it makes to the organisation.

In One Step: How to Ensure Leadership Development Works | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it
In short, companies can assess the investment in leadership development most readily through measurable improvements afterwards in the way leaders lead.
Graeme Reid's insight:

Further evidence that leadership development programmes, on their own, do not change behaviour.  It is the rigorous follow-up of the ideas and in-sights that the participants have gained that is vital - whether this is through coaching, mentoring or group sessions.  I know from personal experience that no matter how inspirational the development programme when you get back to your day job and get swamped by the demands of clients/ customers the best of intentions to introduce changes can easily get sidetracked.  If only I had had the foresight to work with a coach the value gained from the programmes could have been embedded into day to day behaviour.
