Who Needs Rebels at Work?

Who Needs Rebels at Work? | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
By Carmen Medina "I promise to read the book and make sure to keep it from all the people in my group. Last thing I need are rebels." The above is a genuine reaction we received from a longstanding friend about our new book "Rebels at Work: A Handbook for Leading Change [...]

donhornsby's insight:

Rehabilitating your Troublemakers. Corporate leaders may worry that Rebels at Work will create gangs of rebellious employees (cue Les Miserables). But the reality is rebels are already inside your corporate gates and increasingly unhappy. Many of them have the potential to become positive forces for your organization — to become good rebels. For that to happen, however, employees need different skills and managers need more effective ways of managing individuals who think differently.

A paper from Journal for Business Ethics suggests fairness in leadership is a powerful motivator inside and outside a company

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Fairness inside a company has ripples far beyond the office too. Employees who are treated fairly are far more likely to treat others fairly – be they customers, suppliers, business partners, whoever. With fairness comes trust, and with trust comes loyalty. And loyalty carries real commercial weight.

Integrity and strength of character are at the heart of leadership ... and a culture of "fairness" resonates across and outside of an organization.

Cath Daley's curator insight, October 9, 2013 8:16 AM

And I think fairness follows on automatically if you have integrity very high in your values, both personally and as accompany.fairness and integrity go hand in hand

Helena Gonçalves's curator insight, October 23, 2013 5:03 AM

Would you use "fair" to describe your leader?

It is true that if you don't listen to me, I will not listen to you though I might pretend to be listening because you are my boss.

Raymond Godding's curator insight, October 31, 2014 4:01 PM

Leiders die beweging tot stand willen brengen, beginnen met luisteren voordat ze gaan vertellen.

donhornsby's insight:

(Great Thought) Most people work hard to create stability in their lives only to find that much is out of their control. No need to beat yourself up about it.
