Rewards and Recognition Done Right

Rewards and Recognition Done Right | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Rewards and recognition programs can be an important part of your organization’s incentive plan. However, if they are implemented wrong, they can backfire.

Roger Francis's insight:
(From the article): Deliberate the delivery
How you deliver rewards and recognition to employees can stick the landing or crash the landing. Don’t kill the intent. You should think through the delivery with attention to detail. For example, sincerity is key; if it comes from the heart it sticks in the mind. Also remember that “Specificity is a must; general praise leads to a general malaise,” and “Timeliness is critical. Drift creates a rift.” Let R&R drift past the time a praise-worthy event occurred and you create a rift between receipt of the recognition and any potential for associated meaning.

Overcoming Leadership Isolation and the Biases it Creates  

Overcoming Leadership Isolation and the Biases it Creates   | New Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’re like the thousands of leaders I know… you know it’s lonely at the top.

It’s true, whether the top is across a team, department or division of a company. If you lead, it gets lonely.

You lead because of what you know. Those around you need your clarity; they look to you for answers. Those who report to you need your critical perspective and approach.  

Those around you want to know what you know. But what they don’t know is how much you – don’t know. And that’s one of the many factors that create isolation.

Isolation is a condition. It sucks.

Isolation brings stress. And stress makes all of us stupid. No matter how smart we are.

Isolation destroys: Profit. Relationships. Life. Isolation lies at the heart of fatigue.

Isolation creates blind spots. Blind spots create biases.

Biases impact your leadership; Affect your decisions; Cause assumptions; Impair judgment; Limit your outcomes.

Isolation comes at a high cost. But no one recognizes it. No one talks about it. It’s too unpleasant.

'Dancing Barista' Demonstrates the Rewards of Heart-Centered Leadership

'Dancing Barista' Demonstrates the Rewards of Heart-Centered Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
There is a lesson for leaders in the viral video of Sam Forbes, a Starbucks employee from Toronto known as the “dancing barista.” Sam has autism and experiences uncontrollable sudden movements, making it difficult for him to remain still. Starbucks manager Chris Ali hired Sam, 17, to work at his location four months ago, and used music to help Sam acclimate to his responsibilities. Chris realized that Sam loved to dance and played music so that Sam could dance in between his barista duties, finding that it calmed Sam’s sporadic movements. Interestingly, this approach also improved Sam’s focus, thereby supporting his tasks behind the bar.

“Sync to Swim”: The Synchronized Leader Model | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Twenty-first-century business requires agility–from teams, from institutions, and from leaders–and that agility comes from synchronized leadership. Despite the radical change in the environment, many institutions still cling to Twentieth-century management models.

By now, everyone’s heard 70% of the workforce is checked out. That’s why employee engagement remains all the rage among management fads.

How Strong Cultures Help Companies Win Talent — and Customers, Too | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Leaders tend to focus on the internal benefits of culture — the ability to retain talent and improve performance.

But the benefits of a strong culture also have huge external benefits, and are the primary driver not only in deciding with whom to do business, but also how long the relationship will last.

These are the findings of Beyond the Brand: Why Business Decision Makers Buy into Strong Cultures, by the Fortune Knowledge Group in collaboration with gyro.
