Richard Lock's curator insight, September 24, 2013 11:17 AM

Yet again the evidence points to the critical role line managers play in delivering an engaged workforce. However good the top line strategies and processes, they are likely to stand or fall on the quality of managers in the business.

Albert Green's comment, September 19, 2013 3:29 AM
The headline misleaded me a bit. Until now I thought this was the first Chief Storyteller title in history. And from what I've read, she's been working for SPA for 18 months already, so it's about time to hear more about her achievements. Great content, nevertheless, thanks again.
Karen Dietz's comment, September 19, 2013 10:15 AM
Hi Albert -- yes there are a few other Chief Storytellers around. But it is still rare. And I really like your point -- we do want to know more! Seems SAP needs to continue to share this story :)

John Michel's curator insight, September 16, 2013 6:13 AM

As the economy improves and the baby boom generation retires, companies that have reputations as ruthless maximizers of short-term profits will find themselves on the losing end of the global competition for talent. In an era of plentiful capital, it will be skills, knowledge, creativity and experience that will be in short supply, with those who have it setting the norms of corporate behavior.

Lousy leaders use pay checks as permission to control. You feel like you own their time because you paid for it. Technically, you’re right. But, who enjoys being controlled?

When organizations are provided with a clear and simple road-map, they can move with purpose and focus, leaving room for individual imagination and experience to fill in the details. But when they are deluged with long lists of priorities and complex tactics dressed up in fancy words, people's eyes glaze over and confusion reigns.
