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."

How To Train Your Employees To Handle Social Media - nice infographic!

How To Train Your Employees To Handle Social Media - nice infographic! | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

An important step for a brand that has a social media strategy, and wants to avoid crises, is to ensure that employees understand how to use those tools.

This Infographic by Mindflash demonstrates that 76% of companies do not have a clearly defined social media policy.

Social media consultants can be an expensive addition to your business. But in this day and age, no company can operate without a sound social plan.

 

Your best social media team might actually be your current workforce. But how can you find your company’s natural social media rock stars and get your entire team on board with your goals?

 

The Infographic breaks down how your team members will likely react to the need for social media training. For example, some of your employees may already have popular social media channels in their personal lives, while others may be opposed to your business’ push online.

 

Keep in mind that your team probably represents a wide range of social media experience. This will help you know how to identify the different groups and understand how to best get them ready to implement your strategy.

"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."

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.

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.
