Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Organizational development | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

New Research Unlocks the Secret of Employee Recognition

New Research Unlocks the Secret of Employee Recognition | Organizational development | Scoop.it

Bersin has completed a comprehensive research project on employee recognition (saying "thank you") and the results are really astounding: organizations that give regular thanks to their employees far out perform those that don't.

 

What their research found was that tenure-based rewards systems have virtually no impact on organizational performance. It turns out that many of these tenure-based rewards programs are really legacy programs from the turn of the century when labor unions forced management to give employees “service awards” and hourly raises for tenure. Most large companies still have these programs today, yet only 58% of employees even know such programs exist. So for the most part they aren’t creating much value.

 

On other hand, our research did find that modern, re-engineered recognition programs can have a huge impact on business performance.

Believe me or not... 

 

Yesterday I've finallized a manual designed to support my view on the future of organizational development for the social economy entities, to which i've given the name of 'Engagement Management', where I've assembled these four tools as the most important any organization should embrace:

 

1. Strategy (to control or to develop?)

2. The importance of Employee RECOGNITION

3. Team development meetings using the principle of fostering participation and creativity

4. Self-assessment as the best way to allow indivividual, thus groupal, growth

Did it also sound to you as if today's scoop.it articles I've received were not by chance these particular ones I'm now sharing?

10 Steps To Effective Listening

10 Steps To Effective Listening | Organizational development | Scoop.it

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems. Listening builds friendships and careers. It saves money and marriages.

  1. Face the speaker and maintain eye contact.
  2. Be attentive, but relaxed.
  3. Keep an open mind.
  4. Listen to the words and try to picture what the speaker is saying.
  5. Don’t interrupt and don’t impose your “solutions.
  6. Wait for the speaker to pause to ask clarifying questions.
  7. Ask questions only to ensure understanding.
  8. Try to feel what the speaker is feeling.
  9. Give the speaker regular feedback.
  10. Pay attention to what isn’t said—to nonverbal cues.

9 Famous People Who Proved You Don't Need To Be Loud To Make Real Noise | Organizational development | Scoop.it

Many of the world's most revered leaders have actually been far less outgoing than their public personas would lead us to believe. Through their successes, we learn that being shy absolutely doesn't mean being powerless. Sometimes you need to be quiet to make real noise, and always remember, actions speak louder than words.

 

 

Below are nine famous people that commonly strike us as outgoing, but who were actually far more quiet at heart.

Even quiet people can make a HUGH difference. Shyness and introvertness is not an excuse for holding you back. You can make a significant difference just by whispering.

A Principal's Reflections: The People and Moments That Define Us

A Principal's Reflections: The People and Moments That Define Us | Organizational development | Scoop.it

"I knew early on in my education career that I wanted to be an administrator. The predominant reason for this was that I wanted to at least attempt to be a fraction of the leader that my father was.  My father was an elementary principal for 30 years and I always admired how he was able to inspire his staff to focus on student learning. To say that he was beloved by all would be a significant understatement.  He also consistently did those little things (dressing up for Halloween, cooking breakfast for his staff) that on the surface don’t seem like a big deal, but meant so much to his staff and students. His calm and collective nature allowed him to effectively deal with adverse situations. To this day I still go to my father for advice. To sum it up, he was the total package as an administrator. "
