Why Trying to Manipulate Employee Motivation Always Backfires!

"The research is clear, and has been known in social science circles for decades: Carrot-and-stick thinking is, at its core, a control method--and people always resist being controlled. Even if they don't openly resist, people resent being coerced into certain behaviors.'

 

Nice insight from Ken and Scott Blanchard.

Quit Worrying About Employee Engagement | Fistful of Talent | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

I started thinking about all the posts and studies talking about how to drive greater employee engagement and it struck me that we should worry less about engagement and worry more about “enablement.”

7 Virtual Customer Service Tips - Amie Marse

7 Virtual Customer Service Tips - Amie Marse | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Anybody in business knows that keeping customers is a LOT cheaper than finding new ones. One way that companies keep their current customers happy is through customer service, which has definitely changed due to online sales. Here is a list of 7 ways you can let your clients know that you care:

1. Over Communication;

2. Timely Response;

3. Make a Personal Connection;

4. Establish Boundaries;

5. Broadcast Effectively;

6. Ask for Feedback;

7. Goodies.

Imagine customer service as the wrapping paper around your product. The product itself is important, but the customer service often makes the biggest impression. In this fast paced virtual world the most important thing you can do is remind your clients they are more than an email address.

Can You Legislate Employee Engagement? via @humancapleague | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

What does it take to move “employee engagement” from buzzword or annual survey exercise to actual workforce change?

 

Obviously, it requires investment and commitment at an organization level. But what could happen if that investment and commitment were made at a national level?

Over-Control and Open Space

In the case of Open Space Technology, the facilitator must not be confused with the process, as the do-er of it. The facilitator is the minimal agent or even channel for self-organisation to “escape” into the world.

 

Good advice on an excellent large group methodology.

"They need leaders. They need people to lead them where they already want to go. It’s not like you’d be leading them toward some undesirable state of affairs. On the contrary, you’d be leading them toward a trusting, honest, healthy, passionate, and maybe even—gasp—fun culture, which is exactly what most people want anyway. So if so many people want this, why do many people find themselves in environments that are none of the things they actually want? What’s missing?"

"General Mills, the company behind Cheerios cereal and Häagen-Dazs ice cream, is headquartered on a leafy expanse outside Minneapolis, Minnesota. Enclosed walkways connect a network of modernist buildings, protecting Midwestern workers from heat and humidity in the summer, and bitter cold and towering snowdrifts in the winter. Inside the halls, some 3,000 people work on everything from product development and marketing to litigation, regulation and mergers and acquisitions. The employee base is generally reflective of middle America – predominantly white, casually dressed and possessing a genial, if hard-working, disposition.

 

Yet there are signs that in some significant ways, General Mills has a distinctly unusual corporate culture. Open the right door on a Tuesday morning and you might find a few dozen team leaders and executives meditating silently together on cushions, steeling their minds for the work week ahead. Enter a conference room later that afternoon and witness more than 50 senior employees from across the organisation standing on one leg in the tree pose as they practise yoga. Note that in every building on the General Mills campus there is a meditation room, equipped with a few zafus – or cushions for sitting practice – and yoga mats where, day after day, employees duck in to grab a few minutes of equanimity in between their meetings. These are the most obvious signs that, as an organisation, General Mills has something resembling a collective spiritual life."
