What It Will Take to Fix HR

What It Will Take to Fix HR | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In the July/August issue of HBR, Ram Charan argues that the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) role should be eliminated, with HR responsibilities funneled in two separate directions — administration, led by traditional HR-types, reporting to the CFO; and talent strategy, led by high-potential line managers, reporting to the corner office. While my colleague and I vehemently agree that HR’s status quo is an inhibitor to growth, it is with the same fervor that we disagree with Ram’s proposed solution.

Excerpt from John's blog post: 


Make no mistake about it, if all you do is focus on learning within the four walls of your firm, you’ve already lost. The key to scaling learning is to be able to reach out beyond your enterprise and find ways to connect with world-class participants in a broad array of complementary domains in ways that will help all participants to learn faster.

How to Juggle Your Business to Success

How to Juggle Your Business to Success | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The day-to-day operations of any organization can be a bit like juggling – the right hand needs to know what the left is doing, and the body in the middle has to coordinate the entire process. While it may be possible to keep everything in motion, without proper synchronicity things can only stay that way for a short amount of time before balls start to drop. In companies, marketing and finance often play the role of the two hands

Vision is What Separates Great Leaders - George Ambler | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Vision is the foundation of leadership. Whilst leadership starts with being the right person - the character of the leader, great leadership is sustained by a shared and compelling vision. A compelling vision is one that describes who you are, why you exist and the future you want to create.

Ethics in the Workplace - What's It About?

Ethics in the Workplace - What's It About? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Ethics are about making choices that may not always feel good or seem like they benefit you but are the right choices to make. They are the choices that are examples of model citizens and examples of  the golden rules. We've all heard the golden rules: Don't hurt, don't steal, don't lie, or one of the most famous: Do unto others as you would have done to you. These are not just catchy phrases; these are words of wisdom that any productive member of society should strive to live by

Using collaborative learning for faster results

Using collaborative learning for faster results | New Leadership | Scoop.it

A project team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) won a North American nationwide balloon-hunt contest in an impossible nine hours. How? By collaborating on the web to learn from each other while they completed the task.

 

They turned to familiar, collaborative web technology to solve a professional challenge by:


• Inviting their friends and their friends’ networks to participate

 

• Choosing technology that people already knew how to use

 

• Making it worthwhile to share experiences and collect information

 

• Appling what they learnt in the moment.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) spreads, the implications for business model innovation are huge. Filling out well-known frameworks and streamlining established business models won’t be enough. To take advantage of new, cloud-based opportunities, today’s companies will need to fundamentally rethink their orthodoxies about value creation and value capture.

Why Mindful Individuals Make Better Decisions

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 27, 7:38 PM

Mindfulness does not improve bottom lines unless it improves the person practicing the practice and make for a better world. Mindfulness is compassionate and is directed towards a better world. Thinking about meditation is a key component; the opposite is premeditation. What does that bring up. For example, in School we calculate what is important in advance and write curricula. That calculation is premeditated and does not require being mindful and attentive to this particular child's needs. Chogyam Trungpa suggested the practice on the mat prepares us for the real practice in life.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, July 27, 12:56 AM


The focus of most business owners, tends to be directed towards refining and improving the products or services they offer to their market,  but it can be argued that a better return can be obtained by focussing on the customer experience  side of the business transaction.


In the 21st century, it is the creation of a unique customer experience, that acts as the differentiator between highly successful businesses and the rest of the competition.


This excellent article,  suggests that moving beyond your product or service is the most certain way to create customer loyalty and grow your business, and it offers three ways a business owner can create amazing customer experiences.

The ingredients of good performance

The ingredients of good performance | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Roger Francis's insight:

I find it fascinating that organisations spend money, sometimes huge amounts of budget, on leadership and engagement programmes because they feel these are the solution to dealing with their perceived performance issues. And yet alongside these leadership and engagement programmes they make little or no effort to better enable the workforce to do the tasks they are being asked to do. In my opinion, organisations should start with enabling people, in effect making them more capable, and this in turn will have a more immediate and also lasting positive effect on engagement and productivity.
