8 Psychological Benefits of Being Humble | PsyBlog - Understand Your Mind

8 Psychological Benefits of Being Humble | PsyBlog - Understand Your Mind | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

The poet Tennyson once said that humility is, “the highest virtue, the mother of them all.”

Yet society celebrates over-confidence, entitlement and a perpetual focus on the self.

People are increasingly competitive, attention-seeking, narcissistic, obsessed with their appearance and entitled.

A new study, though, underlines eight ways in which being humble can help us improve our lives (Kesebir, 2014).

Seven Things Great Employers Do (that Others Don’t)

Seven Things Great Employers Do (that Others Don’t) | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

For most people, paid work is unsettling and energy-sapping. Despite employee engagement racing up the priority list of CEOs (see, for example, The Conference Board’s CEO Challenge 2014), HBR's research into workplaces all over the world reveals a sorry state of affairs: workers who are actively disengaged outnumber their engaged colleagues by an overwhelming factor of 2:1. The good news is that there are companies out there bucking the trend, and they have discovered how.


Over a five-year timeframe, HBR studied 32 exemplary companies (collectively employing 600,000 people) across seven industries including hospitality, banking, manufacturing, and hospitals. At these companies, the engaged workers outnumber the actively disengaged ones by a 9:1 ratio. To understand what drives that tremendous advantage, they looked for contrasts between them and a much larger set of companies they know to be struggling to turn around bland and uninspiring workplaces.

Brilliant Tips On Building Social Collaboration a #mustread | Social Media Today

Brilliant Tips On Building Social Collaboration a #mustread | Social Media Today | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
From Entertainment to Collaboration outlines the second transition that a company must engage in when moving from advertising to engagement as a core marketing strategy.


Marty Note
This is a MUST READ brilliant post my friend Mark Traphagen (@MarkTraphagen) alerted me to because I've been writing about how brands don't get social (Social Media: It's The Conversation Stupid http://sco.lt/7iZVUP ).

I love the ditch digging details Ted shares in this great post. He all but maps the process of creating successful social collaboration with:

Collaboration can take a number of forms: example archetypes are:

1) commentary on content

2) co-creation of content

3) user-generated content

4) collective action or problem solving

###
That is BRILLIANT work. I've been focused on the conversation, but Ted is right. The conversation is the medium, the currency. The payoff for being present and engaged with customers is collaboration. Great stuff and a must read for any brand or Internet marketer (and there are 2 more installments coming).

Mental illness at work: An employer's guide

Mental illness at work: An employer's guide | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Mary Clare-Race, author of Mental Illness at Work, explains how bosses can deal with mental health issues in the workplace. To improve the mental health literacy of people at work is not to turn them into amateur psychiatrists but rather to know what different behaviour means and the sort of help and intervention that can be offered. By shedding some light on this topic we can provide some practical food for thought for managers in the workplace.

David Hain's insight:

This should be required reading for all bosses. #OneinFour of us will suffer mental illness of some kind - that's a lot of workers at any given point!

Why Leadership Development Programs Fail - McKinsey & Co

Why Leadership Development Programs Fail - McKinsey & Co | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Sidestepping four common mistakes can help companies develop stronger and more capable leaders.


1. Overlooking context   A brilliant leader in one situation does not necessarily perform well in another. ....Too many training initiatives we come across rest on the assumption that one size fits all and that the same group of skills or style of leadership is appropriate regardless of strategy, organizational culture, or CEO mandate.

...Focusing on context inevitably means equipping leaders with a small number of competencies (two to three) that will make a significant difference to performance.   (Bold mine, DN)


2. Decoupling reflection from real work   ...On the one hand, there is value in off-site programs ...offering ...Ftime to step back.... On the other hand...adults typically retain just 10 percent of what they hear in classroom lectures, versus nearly two-thirds when they learn by doing. 

...one large international engineering and construction player built a multiyear leadership program that not only accelerated the personal-development paths of 300 midlevel leaders but also ensured that projects were delivered on time and on budget. Each participant chose a separate project... linked to specified changes in individual behavior...

3. Underestimating mind-sets  ...too often these organizations are reluctant to address the root causes of why leaders act the way they do. 

 

4. Failing to measure results      ....One approach is to assess the extent of behavioral change, perhaps through a 360 degree–feedback exercise at the beginning of a program and followed by another one after 6 to 12 months.   .... monitor the business impact, especially when training is tied to breakthrough projects.

Startup Best Practices #6: Avoiding the Bike Rack Effect

Startup Best Practices #6: Avoiding the Bike Rack Effect | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Imagine a city council meeting with three agenda items: a $100M power plant zoning approval, a request to build a $10,000 bike rack for city sidewalks and and a $100 proposal to buy refreshments for the annual picnic. The power plant discussion takes all of 3 minutes to reach approval, as does the refreshment budget. But the $1000 bike rack debate drags on for hours as council members debate the right materials, the best color scheme and the right way to announce the project.
