Why Corporations Are Losing The War For Talent

Why Corporations Are Losing The War For Talent | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

When it comes to the war for talent, corporations are suddenly finding themselves in full retreat mode. That’s because innovation has quietly departed from the hallowed halls of the executive suite, and has taken up residence in the flophouses of millennial would-be entrepreneurs.

In the new game, the corporate ladder has given way to the innovative idea. Authority is no longer ascribed by hierarchical barons; it’s now earned in the communities of social networks.

John Michel's curator insight, January 22, 2013 11:29 PM

Organizations invest billions annually on a success curriculum known as "leadership development," which ends up leaving so much on the table. Training and development programs almost universally focus factory-like on inputs and outputs — absorb curriculum, check a box; learn a skill, advance a rung; submit to assessment, fix a problem. Likewise, they leave too many people behind with an elite selection process that fast-tracks "hi-pos" and essentially discards the rest. And they leave most people cold with flavor of the month remedies, off sites, immersions, and excursions — which produce little more than a grim legacy of fat binders gathering dust on shelves.

What if, instead of stuffing people with curricula, models, and competencies, we focused on deepening their sense of purpose, expanding their capability to navigate difficulty and complexity, and enriching their emotional resilience? What if, instead of trying to fix people, we assumed that they were already full of potential and created an environment that promoted their long-term well-being? In other words, what if cultivating a successful inner life was front and center on the leadership agenda?

Efficienarta's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:59 AM

I thought that the points on "deepening their sense of purpose" and "expanding their capability to navigate difficulty" were particularly interesting.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, March 9, 2014 7:23 PM

Leadership development programmes often fall far short of expectations and rarely lead to long term change. Developing people is a process not an event.  Also check out - www.corporatecoachingnetwork.com.au

Understanding the ‘Boregasm’: Boredom is a State of Stress, Researchers say.

Understanding the ‘Boregasm’: Boredom is a State of Stress, Researchers say. | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

In trying to understand this universal feeling, researchers are increasingly asking: What does your boredom say about you?

 

If you are reading this, odds are you are not bored. At this moment, your attention is actively engaged. I can’t say for how long but I know that once you lose interest, you will blame me: this article is dull, this writer is boring.

 

But in trying to understand this universal feeling, researchers are increasingly asking: What does your boredom say about you?

 

“Kids have a term for it, ‘Boregasm,’ where you’re hit with a 1,000 pounds of boredom at once,’’ says Albert Nerenberg, a Montreal-based filmmaker who just released a documentary about boredom.

The Biology of Great Organizations

The Biology of Great Organizations | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

This tension, this beautiful tension that exists between what’s inside the organization and what’s outside it, is, in many ways, what defines the organization – it’s what makes it work. It is this ongoing, non-stop exchange of information, ideas, people, goods and services that animates the organization; it’s what gives it life. When that flow ceases to function, so does the organization.

What is the Role of HR in Enterprise 2.0? | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Social media has proved pretty effective at changing the world and how we communicate with one another. It is also slowly changing our organisations, and as with any organisation, HR is right in the middle of the change.

 

Technologies such as Yammer and Work.com have been changing how we collaborate and manage performance respectively. What does the future hold though?

8 Cognitive Biases That Will Make or Break Your Culture

8 Cognitive Biases That Will Make or Break Your Culture | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

In HR we often rely on common sense. But there is a dark side to common sense that HR needs to stay aware of. Sometimes our instincts will steer us the wrong way. Behavioral psychologists call this “cognitive bias”. It will affect perceptions, it will affect objectivity, and it will affect relationships—in both positive and negative ways. That makes it very relevant to culture management and to you.

The Cost of Speaking the Truth

The Cost of Speaking the Truth | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Speak the truth and the truth will set you free. That's exactly what happened to Stephen after he dared to speak out at work. The IT consultant was working for a media company when cracks in the project began to surface. After he chose to highlight the problems he was shown the door.

 

“The project was in a shambles and everyone was turning a blind eye to the elephant in the room. The managers and executive officers were lying about impossible deadlines and deliverables. Other department heads knew that something was wrong, but kept quiet. It was like some mafia situation between the certain levels of management and the steering committee."
