Employee Engagement and Loyalty Start at the Top: How to Deal with Problem Bosses | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Not everyone is a born manager. Most people need some training, as it happens. A lot of management is common sense. Treat people the way you’d have them treat you. Sadly, sometimes people forget all about the Golden Rule – or choose to for their own purposes.

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development?

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development? | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Twitter and Facebook might soon replace traditional professional development for teachers. Instead of enduring hours-long workshops a few times a year, teachers could reach out to peers on the Internet in real time for advice on things like planning a lesson (or salvaging a lesson that’s going wrong), overcoming classroom management problems, or helping students with disabilities.

Best Practices - Aren't - Forbes

Best Practices - Aren't - Forbes | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

There is no such thing as best practices. The reality is best practices are nothing more than disparate groups of methodologies, processes, rules, concepts and theories that attained a level of success in certain areas, and because of those successes, have been deemed as universal truths able to be applied anywhere and everywhere. Just because someone says something doesn’t mean it’s true. Moreover, just because “Company A” had success with a certain initiative doesn’t mean that “Company B” can plug-and-play the same process and expect the same outcome. There is always room for new thinking and innovation, or at least there should be.

11 Steps to Create Unity and Loyalty

11 Steps to Create Unity and Loyalty | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

If there is one difference maker in organizations, it may be the leaders’ ability to create unity and loyalty. Unity and loyalty often make the difference between mediocrity and greatness. When I see an organization that lacks personal accountability and has a toxic culture of finger pointing and blame, it is usually the result of a lack of unity and loyalty.

 

Great leaders have the ability to create an organizational culture that minimizes politics, confusion and turnover. The great organizations have a cult like following, not only internally but externally. Think Apple, Zappos and Southwest Airlines.

 

Here are 11 things great leaders do to create oneness and richness. Not everyone will be loyal, but it’s worth the risk.
