 Countless studies have shown that a happy workforce is more productive than a dissatisfied one. When a company can turn itself into a community, miraculous things happen. Unity takes hold and the company’s goals become the individual’s goals. Word gets out the company is a great place to work, and that it in turn helps it to attract even more stellar talent. A perpetual workplace culture of talent is created.

Unconscious bias: are you guilty of blocking the talent pipeline?

Unconscious bias: are you guilty of blocking the talent pipeline? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

 

A man stood in the L’Enfant Plaza metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin. It was a cold, January rush hour morning. Over a period of 45 minutes, he played six Bach pieces. Only seven people stopped to listen. 27 gave him money but continued to walk. He collected $32 in tips. When he finished playing and silence fell, no one noticed.  

 

The violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played some of the most intricate pieces ever written, on a violin worth $3.5 million. Three days before this, Joshua Bell had sold out a theatre in Boston where the average ticket price was $100.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, September 5, 2013 10:22 AM

Excellent post!

 

From the article:

 

A good leader cannot allow themselves to get sucked into the mindset of thinking that the talents of one employee are more important than the morale of many employees. As painful as losing a talented person can be, it is more painful to impact the entire culture of a company by supporting an “all about me attitude” of a single employee.

 

It is critical that leaders send a clear message that everyone matters equally to the organization, regardless of their title or position.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 13, 2013 10:17 AM

We need a different approach to knowing in the workplaces and in our institutions.

 In today’s competitive business environment, online learning and MOOCS are getting a lot of attention.

 

This week, we are joined by the President and CEO of Educause, Dr. Diana Oblinger, to explore the amazing learning opportunities available to everyone of us.

 

Any company, regardless of size or budget, can help their employees develop their skills for free, or at a minimal expense. Online learning allows us to bring learning to real issues from the workplace.

The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers

The Influence Landscape: The Evolving Power of Shapers & Influencers | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Even as recently as twenty or thirty years ago, the people with influence were relatively easy to spot: the President or Prime Minister of a nation, religious leaders, CEOs, and probably your parents.


Their influence was based on a combination of position, experience, knowledge, wealth – and most importantly control of the channels of communication to the “people,” for to have power influence must be spread.


No longer – the influence landscape has already shifted dramatically and will continue to evolve.

Great visual of the modern leader and to quote Jim Collins,m"we are moving from organizations well managed to networks well led." Essentially, the leaders of today will be more like association executives than command and control CEOs of the past. What do you think about this?

Satisfaction at Work Is Not Enough

Satisfaction at Work Is Not Enough | New Leadership | Scoop.it

 

Workplace satisfaction, a measure that assesses employees’ perception that their needs are met at work, is an incomplete measure.

 

 

For years organizations have sought to find answers to their employee satisfaction questions in the now ubiquitous assessment. I conclude that the answers have been elusive or short lived given the current state of our workplaces. In a loud, collective annoyed voice, employees are shouting that the workplace is intolerable. Recent research from Gallup revealed that 70% of employees are not reaching their potential. That’s unacceptable.
