Stop Trying to Control People or Make Them Happy

Stop Trying to Control People or Make Them Happy | Insights: OD - Leadership - Innovation & Learning | Scoop.it

orTo boost productivity, give them autonomy and foster cooperation.

subin muraleedharan's insight:

The authors Eves Morieux and Peter Tollman who are partners at BCG outlines the six simple rule which a new age manager can follow to build high performing teams.. This approach is not from the Taylor's school (put structures to control behavior) nor is it from the Mayo's school (motivate people through team building programs) ... I think the proposed approach accounts for the motivational factors of the Gen Y very well.

 Six simple rules

Understand what your people do:  Start with a true understanding of what your people do and why they do it.Reinforce integrators: Foster cooperation by giving people the power and interest to do so.Increase the total quantity of power: Create new power, don’t just shift existing power.Increase reciprocity: Ensure people use their autonomy.Extend the shadow of the future: Create direct feedback loops.Reward those who cooperate:  Make transparency, innovation, and aspiration the best choices for individuals and teams.

How Coaches Can Help Leaders Become More Mindful

How Coaches Can Help Leaders Become More Mindful | Insights: OD - Leadership - Innovation & Learning | Scoop.it
Coaches can be a catalyst for developing great leaders
subin muraleedharan's insight:

Author  Ray Williams draws a nice connect between Mindfulness & leadership here.

The most interesting part in the article is, where he talks about how the new corporate structure promotes cognitive shortcuts in decision making.

I quite relate to this. We come across many such instances at work where decisions are taken in a reactive mode and we are forced to believe that "something that works for the current situation is always the best". And you later witness these quick fixes becoming grave problems later.
