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:

What makes a smart employee goal? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

 Goals drive us as a whole (company, that is) and as individuals. They define what we need to do and how we need to do it. As managers and employees, we all have individual goals tailored to the work that we do and the contributions we make to organizational success. The question is, do those goals make sense?

How Frequent Turnover in Top Leadership Can Turn an Organization Toxic

How Frequent Turnover in Top Leadership Can Turn an Organization Toxic | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A few months ago Amtrak faced the worst train accident to ever hit the northeast corridor.

 

Though still under NTSB investigation – it is likely that no one single issue caused the crash. It was a sequence of events that lead to the Amtrak disaster, and not all of them occurred onboard the train the day of the accident. Many of the events leading to the accident stemmed from problems within the Amtrak organization itself.

Developing a new leadership agenda: size matters

Developing a new leadership agenda: size matters | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Every small business owner knows the success of their business ultimately rests on their shoulders. Accounting for almost 95% of all firms in the UK, from a government perspective the success of the micro business sector is critical to growing the economy (Young, 2013). While there are a number of factors influencing small business success, it is recognised that the confidence and ambition to grow ultimately depends on a strong level of leadership to make it happen. For micro firms with limited resources to commit to leadership training and development programmes herein the problem lies. Currently, both publically funded and private mainstream leadership development programmes in the UK are still supply-led relevant only to firms with functional divisions of labour. Thereby, failing to take into account the distinct market failure issues impacting upon leadership practice and learning in micro firms.

How to Get Over Your Controlling Ways

How to Get Over Your Controlling Ways | New Leadership | Scoop.it

There is a famous quote attributed to the legendary race car driver Mario Andretti:


If everything appears to be under control, then you’re just not going fast enough.


Control is a wonderful thing, but it is fundamentally incompatible with outstanding speed. When you control things you can maintain quality or manage your costs more effectively, but you’ll have to give up speed in the process. Just remember that old adage that you may have heard from a consultant or service provider at some point in your career: good, fast, and cheap—pick two.


But does that really cut it in today’s world? We have the internet and digital technology now. We have more information at our fingertips than our grandparents even knew existed. Hasn’t the game changed?

Shifting the mindset of leaders and its transformational power | New Leadership | Scoop.it

This article summarises the most significant evidence, including the author’s own research, coaching and consulting experience, and includes a description of a programme that has been highly effective in several workplaces. It argues that the potential of an empowering style of leadership is still not fully acknowledged, owing to an understatement
of the degree of interdependence between individual and organisational development. There is now strong evidence to support the conclusion that a leader’s mindset, conduct and personal presence are not merely influential, but potentially transformational.

Early in its history, Southwest Airlines was up against major carriers undercutting it on price and the company knew it had to take some radical steps. After selling one of its four planes just to make payroll, the leadership then asked how it could continue to transport the same number of passengers with fewer planes. The CEO knew he didn’t have all the solutions, so the whole company was put to work. Ideas were sourced from baggage handlers, ground crew, flight crew and even pilots.
