Excellent post!  

 

From the article:

 

Hiring the right managers makes all the difference. Steve Miranda, Managing Director for Cornell University’s Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies (CAHRS), said in an interview that he believed 80 percent of employee turnover resulted from the environment created by a manager as opposed to the company at large.


So it’s critical to work closely to make sure there’s a consistent open line of communication between employees and managers, and that managers are working collaboratively and positively with their employees.

(From the article): Though, there are many other employee retention strategies for engaging and retaining employees, these tips should serve as a good start. Be transparent, have a clear employee value proposition, communicate with employees early and often, know what they want and what you want, and what motivates them.

Co-author of the book 'The Ascending Leader' says "more than three-quarters of the time, leaders who fail do so because of poor assimilation to the culture of their new workplace."

 

HR has an important role to partner with new leaders early on: "HR professionals should advise them to study and understand the culture first so the new executives can ensure that their proposed changes are a good fit for the company."

 

"In addition, HR professionals can help leaders assess and understand their strengths and weaknesses as they take on a new role—even if it’s within the same company."

Seth Godin on the Difference Between Leadership and Management

Seth Godin on the Difference Between Leadership and Management | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Managers figure out what they want done and get people to do it. Managers try to get people to do what they did yesterday, but a little faster and a little cheaper with a few less defects. But this is not leadership.

What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management?

What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Management and leadership practises were once just a subject for TV sitcoms – the Office's David Brent, a master of 'management speak', was celebrated as an example of all that is bad about bosses.

 

But recent scandals, such as those concerning the BBC, NHS and the banking sector, have forced the debate about management and leadership up the agenda. Employers and politicians alike are now asking how our public and private bodies should be organised – and how we can prepare the next generation of leaders.

 

Key to the problem is understanding the difference between management and leadership, says John Kotter, Konosuke Matsushita professor of leadership at Harvard University. He fears that too often, employers use the terms synonymously.

While management and leadership are distinct concepts, there is a natural overlap between the skills they require. Rebecca Ratcliffe explores

The turth is, we need both leaders and managers. One cannot exist without the other. Too often wwe look for ways to segregate ourselves along artificial lines. The key is to build bridges that unite and define, not barriers that divide and deminish.
