Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 27, 2012 2:57 PM

Business can be complex. Leadership can be complex. Certainly our culture and society is complex.


This article gets us thinking -- and includes some fabulous advice -- about how storytelling can help us wade through complex issues, make better decisions, and find a path forward.


Today. Right now. As 2013 approaches, let's continue to use stories well, to help grow and excel, instead of to diminish others.


There are wise and uplifting words in this piece and steps to take. Let's go this route. Happy New Year everyone.

6 Reasons Your Top Talent Won't Leave You

6 Reasons Your Top Talent Won't Leave You | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, January 6, 2013 6:45 PM

I hate to disagree with a well-known business publication; however, the author of this article is absolutely mistaken why top talent will not leave a company. It has nothing to do with risk, demographics, the economy or health care benefits. Some employees might care deeply about these issues, but top talent couldn't give a darn. I'll focus on professionals, managers, and executives.


There are two primary reasons, employees seek greener pastures.


1. They no longer feel they are learning at a significant pace, they are not having a substantial impact on the group, department, function, or business. And they are not becoming something better in skills, capability, and knowledge for the time they have spent in their current role.


We call this the LIB curve (learning, impact, and becoming). It's pretty much a rephrasing of what Maslow called self-actualization.


When this curve plateaus and begins to decline top talent desperately attempts to find the exit door. Salary, benefits, the economy, and other temporary issues DO NOT set top talent back from realizing their dreams.


The problem is that most talented employees ALWAYS have plenty of options. They get calls all the time from recruiters, regardless of what's going on in the economy.


2. Many executives and managers are terrible at the skill of managing, developing, encouraging, and engaging their teams. Unfortunately, very few companies put any emphasis on this issue as a element of recognition, bonus, or training.


Many employees seek greener pastures because they think their boss is an idiot. Until companies invest in training those in a managerial capacity how to be great at managing, this will always be an issue of why your employees constantly have one foot out the door.

The Most Powerful Weapon Of Influence In Human History

The Most Powerful Weapon Of Influence In Human History | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Picture yourself sunk deep in red crushed velvet sipping icy cold cola with the smell of warm buttered popcorn. As bright images fade and the sonorous sounds of the last movie trailer silence, gaze deeply at fluorescent blue words scrolling upon a pitch black screen: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”…

 

See yourself today looking back three decades, having witnessed the spark of a booming pop cultural phenomenon known as Star Wars, made possible by a universal weapon – not the futuristic lightsaber of the Jedi Order, but rather the ancient relic of “story telling”.

 

Story is the essence of thought and action

 

When we hear a story coming, the depths of our minds open unconditionally to receive and act upon whatever message is being sent. That’s because story telling is key to how we think, decide, and behave. As the cognitive scientist Mark Turner says, “Narrative imagining—story—is the fundamental instrument of thought. Rational capacities depend on it. It is our chief means of looking into the future, of predicting, of planning, and of explaining. . . . Most of experience, our knowledge, and our thinking is organized as stories.”
