Managers, how do you treat your weakest employees? | Chartered Management Institute | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Winston Churchill famously said that you can judge the civillity of a society by looking at the way it treats its weakest members. The phrase has been adjusted by many significant thinkers down the years. Ghandi for instance believed how we treated animals determined how we could be viewed as a society, whilst Dostoyevsky believed prisoners provided the window into our heart.

Innovate on Purpose: Signals for innovation speed and frequency

Innovate on Purpose: Signals for innovation speed and frequency | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

How often / how fast should we innovate?

 

What I like about the question is the realization that the firm must innovate more than once. What I dislike about the question is the often (implied) whining that suggests that repeated innovation is difficult, time consuming and distracting. So herewith, a short rubric for how "fast" or how often you should innovate.

WHY DO WE HAPPILY MAKE OURSELVES STUPID? (or: the dangers of multi-tasking)

Confession: sometimes I check my phone when my wife is talking to me. 

This makes her mad, for the obvious reason that it’s rude as hell, and it sends a clear signal I’m not really listening.

 

Just because we can multi-task, doesn’t mean we should!

Billy R Bennett's curator insight, December 11, 2012 9:01 PM

Karen Dietz curated this article by Daryl Conner on four types of burning platforms.  A burning platform is a concept leaders use to define the reason for change.  As Daryl points out this may be based on a negative problem  based appeal or a positive, future opportunity.


Which is better?


Research on personal change has reported greater long term success with positive images.    In most serious change projects, we usually use both. 


You cannot and should not hide business challenges from employees.  


However, once they understand the challenge they will then want to hear your reasoning about why they should consider giving more of themselves to the organization.   I would make it good.

How to convince people – give people a reason to follow and trust you | Noozmag | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

People don’t want more information.
They are up to their eyeballs in information.
They want faith - faith in you, your goals, your #success, in the #story you tell.

 

says Annette Simmons, author of “Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins”.

 

How do we reach that people have faith in us?

 

So easy!

 

If we show us from our best side, are authentic and trustworthy and give people appreciation and love they will respect us, too. What we give comes back to us! The seeds we sow we will harvest one day! Life is a process of giving and taking.
