Stop Burning Out Your Employees

A new study finds that the live-fast, die-young model of overworking employees doesn't pay off--even in the short term. Try these alternative ways to motivate your staff.

 

There's a certain glamour to burning the candle at both ends, living fast, working ridiculously hard, playing hard, and, perhaps, burning out young.

 

And it doesn't just apply to rock stars. It affects plenty of business owners too.

 

Sure, you know pushing your employees to work 60-plus hour weeks or to continually create without recharging their brains isn't sustainable, but perhaps you're calculating that the short-term gains from this big push will make up for the reduced productivity or staff-turnover costs down the line.

 

But if that's what you're thinking, according to new, in-depth research your math is wrong. The Towers Watson 2012 Global Workforce Study looked at 32,000 employees across 30 countries to see how engagement affects productivity (and profits) over the long haul. The HBR Blog Network summarizes the findings:

How to test your decision-making instincts | McKinsey & Company

How to test your decision-making instincts | McKinsey & Company | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Given the powerful influence of positive and negative emotions on our unconscious, it is tempting to argue that leaders should never trust their gut: they should make decisions based solely on objective, logical analysis. But this advice overlooks the fact that we can’t get away from the influence of our gut instincts. They influence the way we frame a situation. They influence the options we choose to analyze. They cause us to consult some people and pay less attention to others. They encourage us to collect more data in one area but not in another. They influence the amount of time and effort we put into decisions. In other words, they infiltrate our decision making even when we are trying to be analytical and rational.

This means that to protect decisions against bias, we first need to know when we can trust our gut feelings, confident that they are drawing on appropriate experiences and emotions. There are four tests.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 7, 10:14 AM
(From the article): To ensure you are making progress, set aside time to check in with yourself, and ask a series of questions. When you look at the team, is it changing? Does the composition of your team reflect the composition of your customer base? Are you spending time with people who are less like you? Are your team members engaged? Are you retaining diverse team members? When you have open positions, are you attracting a diverse candidate pool? Do you have an inclusive environment? If you can answer “yes” to these questions, then you know you’ve successfully built a diverse workforce. I look forward to the day when diversity in the workplace is not a problem to be solved, but something that just is.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution: what it means and how to respond

The Fourth Industrial Revolution: what it means and how to respond | New Leadership | Scoop.it
We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders of the global polity, from the public and private sectors to academia and civil society.

The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production. The Second used electric power to create mass production. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production. Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.

When it comes to visible team performance we in the UK have seen some amazing examples in recent times.

From the history-making season Leicester City FC just completed to the now four-times Tour De France winning Sky team.

It makes us wonder – what are the common characteristics in these teams, and more specifically in the members of those teams that must exist in order to succeed, and succeed again?

Ultimately it boils down to three simple virtues. They must be humble, they must be hungry, and they must be smart.

5 Signs That You've Fallen Into The Trap Of Parent-Child Leadership

5 Signs That You've Fallen Into The Trap Of Parent-Child Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Today’s managers talk a lot about wanting employees to be more accountable and to act on their own initiative. And yet, those same managers turn around and say to employees: “I have to give you assignments; I have to give you feedback; I have to hold you accountable.” This leaves employees, much like children, left to take feedback, to take assignments and to passively wait to be held accountable.

Today’s top-performing organizations are leaving this style of Parent-Child leadership behind and replacing it with a new model of leadership that treats employees like adults who have unlimited potential and who deserve the opportunity to take control of their own futures. Establishing an Adult-to-Adult dynamic encourages employees to become self-leading and self-sufficient and results in a more motivated, fulfilled and energized workforce. Employees are more aligned with their organization’s vision and more committed to helping the organization achieve that vision.

Cat Leaders vs. Dog Leaders | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Leaders’ behaviors can be very similar to the behaviors of cats and dogs. Some constantly hover around and pull you out of your work for status updates, meetings, and side projects, while others leave you completely to your own devices and are nowhere to be found when you need them. And it can be quite frustrating to deal with either.
