Leaders Need To Walk The Talk When It Comes To Integrity

Leaders Need To Walk The Talk When It Comes To Integrity | ReHumanization of Work | Scoop.it

Anybody who feels that far too many company reports and websites boast of a commitment to innovation will not be surprised to learn that this is the most cited value  in a survey of how Standard and Poor’s 500 companies present their corporate culture. Innovation – mentioned by fully 80% of companies – was followed by those other staples, integrity, respect and teamwork.

 Since the market values profits over corporate culture, companies will tend to focus on maximizing short-term profits rather than keeping their word.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, July 1, 8:13 PM

There is a trade-off between short-term profits and long-term value.  Investment is required to grow a positive corporate culture.

Decision Making at Warp Speed

Decision Making at Warp Speed | ReHumanization of Work | Scoop.it
Companies face unprecedented business pressures that require both speed and agility. To succeed, their decision-making velocity must increase.
Frank Wander's insight:

This is an article I published on CIO Insight with an industry colleague that is an expert on culture, S. A. Schulz.   There are many, many pressures on business today.  All of them require decisions.  Therefore, an ability to make faster, better, more collaborative decisions is more important than ever.  In this article we outline how leaders should approach this important topic.

Pursuing Passion: 4 Things I’ve Learned From Passionate People

Pursuing Passion: 4 Things I’ve Learned From Passionate People | ReHumanization of Work | Scoop.it
  “…the saddest people I've ever met in life are the ones who don't care deeply about anything at all….” – Nicholas Sparks, Author of The Notebook These days, you're urged to “follow your passions” – “follow your heart” - and “lean in”--but what if you’re not sure where your particular passion lies? What if…
Frank Wander's insight:

Passion is in short supply in corporate America.  This is a good article and a quick read by the Under 30 CEO.  Try to find your passion.  So many people work their whole life, never once finding what they truly love to do.  Much of it is a failing of our educational system that forces everyone through a one size fits all curriculum.  The educational system should expose kids to a broad array of experiences so that they can find what they are truly passionate about.  Once they discover what interests them, their course of study should reflect this.  Steven Spielberg's mother took him out of school to shoot film in the mountains.  Too bad school couldn't respond to his needs.

Employee Engagement and Organizational Performance: What Caterpillar Discovered

Infographic case study for Caterpillar (CAT)
Frank Wander's insight:

In this multi-year employee engagement study by Caterpillar,  it is once again crystal clear that employee engagement is inextricably linked to company performance.  This should not surprise anyone, but it is great to see another case study where the positive ROI of embracing and nurturing people is clear.  Galllup has been studying the economic impact of high engagement since 2000, and their data is equally compelling.  For Caterpillar, "highly engaged branches met, or exceeded, sales targets 40% more often".  Talent is an asset.  Companies need to nurture and grow talent, not treat people as interchangeable parts.

The psychology of your future self

The psychology of your future self | ReHumanization of Work | Scoop.it
"Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they're finished." Dan Gilbert shares recent research on a phenomenon he calls the "end of history illusion," where we somehow imagine that the person we are right now is the person we'll be for the rest of time. Hint: that's not the case.
Frank Wander's insight:

Many people operate in a fixed mindset, seeing the world as limited and static.  This talk by Dan Gilbert shines light on these limiting beliefs, and proves that people underestimate how much their personality, and life situation will change over the coming years.  Embrace change, and realize you can reinvent yourself.  Those who deliberately reinvent themselves will progress better and further than those who let it happen by accident.

Cutting costs won't transform your business, try these eight tips instead

Cutting costs won't transform your business, try these eight tips instead | ReHumanization of Work | Scoop.it
Most companies that try to remake themselves fail miserably, a study found, because they stop at simply cutting costs (RT @RogerNyffeler: 75% of transformations fail. What differentiates the 25% that succeed?

Frank Wander's insight:

Cost cutting is a race to the bottom.  Unless companies learn how to build high performing cultures, with a focus on both the talent and company flourishing, top line growth will remain elusive.

Frank Wander's insight:

As the economy continues to press down on the unemployed, the last thing they need are more barriers to entry into the workforce.  Imagine if every company did this?  How much of an additional burden would this be on individuals who are least able to handle it?  The intentions are no doubt honorable, but the implications are alarming to me.

Changing Corporate Culture Is Hard. Here’s How Lenovo Did It.

Changing Corporate Culture Is Hard. Here’s How Lenovo Did It. | ReHumanization of Work | Scoop.it
Dropping formal titles was a "hard sell" at the PC-maker, but necessary as it expanded its global footprint.
Frank Wander's insight:

Changing culture requires behavioral change on the part of executive management.  This article shows how Lenovo's executive management team actively engaged their employees to change an aspect of their culture, rewarded the new behavior, and led by example.  This example is particularly difficult because they are attempting to change how the overarching societal culture spilled into the company.  Changing corporate culture is simpler and can have great productivity benefits when it transformed.

CEO Nadella promises to shake-up Microsoft's culture: 'Nothing is off the table'
PCWorld
Microsoft staffers worldwide should buckle their seat belts because a big culture shakeup is in the works at the company.
Frank Wander's insight:

Cultural change is a prominent headline these days, yet most companies struggle to successfully transform themselves because they do not understand what culture is, or how to change it.  Until traditional corporations embrace their people,  and learn as much about the human infrastructure as they already know about their computers and networks, failure will be the norm.  Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is correct, this is about  individuals transforming themselves.  However, companies fall short because they develop a set of values, and expect them to take hold across the employee population just by talking about them.  Cultural transformation is all about the behavior of the executives more than anything else.  That is the transformation that is truly needed.

Frank Wander's insight:

It is clear that companies continue to struggle with innovation.  The rise of the Chief Innovation Officer has done nothing to solve the problem of weak incremental innovation, and certainly few breakthroughs.  I thought this article was interesting in that it pointed to research on the limited value of using money as an incentive. - it produced an abundance of weak ideas.  So, once again, creating an innovative culture by design is the only pathway to enduring success.
