When does performance management become bullying? | Tolero Solutions: Organizational Improvement | Scoop.it
Bullying is in the eye of the beholder, at least for the time being, in this country. There is no national definition of bullying or non-sexual harassment behaviour in law at present.

CEO to Commander in Chief: Do The Same Skills Apply? | Tolero Solutions | Tolero Solutions: Organizational Improvement | Scoop.it

Achieving the leadership status and title of the Commander in Chief – President of the United States of America – is the highest appointed leadership position one could achieve. Sure – being a CEO is also a great achievement and the role is also intricate and complex. But leading a group of employees is much different than leading an entire nation.

 

Just because someone was a CEO does that mean they have the leadership skills to be Commander in Chief (CIC)?

The Cost of Speaking the Truth

The Cost of Speaking the Truth | Tolero Solutions: Organizational Improvement | 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."

When There Is Trust…The Dollars Flow

When There Is Trust…The Dollars Flow | Tolero Solutions: Organizational Improvement | Scoop.it

A project manager and a web developer drew a dollar sign on the “trust” side and a penny sign, on “no trust” side.  They simply described it as the following:


“When there is trust, the dollars flow, when there is no trust, the pennies trickle.”

 

This drawing captured the essence of the activity from a business perspective. If there is trust, your team will maximize its efficiency and the results will be superior.


If the team lacks trust, the team’s efficiency will be compromised, the results will be limited and, very often, inferior.
