Lisa McCarthy's insight:

The organizational stories of “self” shape the organizational climate as much as they influence directives, decision-making processes and overall strategies. Organizational narratives are different from employer or employee branding. While branding is a deliberate effort, narratives are born in the moment and reflect the collective fears, hopes and aspirations. As these narratives are based on what large groups perceive as reality, they go viral seemingly effortlessly: from the CEO to the entire staff and back, across suppliers and customers to the outside world.

Toward a new HR philosophy 

Toward a new HR philosophy  | Organisational Development | Scoop.it
When HR sees itself as manager, mediator, and nurturer, it further separates managers from their employees and reinforces a results-versus-people dichotomy.1 That’s why many HR teams refer to the rest of the company as “the business”; too often, they don’t really perceive themselves as a core part of that business.

Breaking the Culture Barrier in Postmerger Integrations

Breaking the Culture Barrier in Postmerger Integrations | Organisational Development | Scoop.it
Most merging companies don’t know how to address their cultural differences—or how important it is to do so immediately. Analyze the differences in behaviors as well as in values, and you’re more likely to preserve the deal’s value, retain talent, and achieve a successful merger.

What Separates High-Performing Leaders from Average Ones?

What Separates High-Performing Leaders from Average Ones? | Organisational Development | Scoop.it
 Are organizations in the modern world built for leaders to fail? Or can you overcome these leadership challenges, and if so, how? How can you become a better leader, if not a great one, in this environment?

How can you become a better leader, if not a great one?

 

 

(From the article): Routines work. While there is an important place for competencies in how we can impact peoples’ performance, this should be a step in the process, not the end state. As the world grows more complex and things move more quickly, leaders need more than a list of characteristics; they need practical ways to see their own performance and better understand where they can impact it. Maybe employees’ dissatisfaction with work and leaders is amplified by the abstracted, inauthentic ways in which organizations have been trying to develop leaders. Understanding key routines is a key step on the way to greatness.

Unstuck — Make your fear work for you

Unstuck — Make your fear work for you | Organisational Development | Scoop.it
You’ve cut through the excuses — I don’t have enough time, I don’t know what to do — and now you’re standing face to face with your fear. And you’re paralyzed.

Your mind is in a tailspin of what-ifs and worst-case scenarios. Your breathing gets faster, palms sweat, mouth goes dry. Everything feels shaky and insecure. You wish you could tackle the challenge…but you also want to run and hide and face your fear another day. You are classically stuck.

But what if you could harness your fear and turn it into a power source, one that would propel you forward and build your confidence in unexpected ways? Yes, we thought you’d be interested, so we tapped into the collective wisdom of our colleagues at SYPartners (the creator of Unstuck). Inspired by their knowledge, experience, and courage, here is a four-step process to transform fear into fuel (with follow-ups for good measure).

How HR Should Reinvent Leadership Development

How HR Should Reinvent Leadership Development | Organisational Development | Scoop.it

HR professionals rely too much on formal training for leadership development. More strategic ways of learning and experiences outside the norm will help create future leaders.

Davell Logan's curator insight, August 5, 2015 3:05 AM

My opinion would be human resources really need to listen and get in the trenches with leaders in all areas of an organization, including seeing how everything operates on a day to day basis for at least one week. Just my opinion.

Why HR Should Lead Change Initiatives

Why HR Should Lead Change Initiatives | Organisational Development | Scoop.it
Change management is about people, performance and leadership, ergo, one would think HR should be leading the charge (or at least playing a major role). Unfortunately, in many cases, HR is not involved because it does not bring the skill sets that would be useful to organizational change or is simply not even invited to the party.
