10 unexpected ways to show your staff that you value them | Aspire-CS

10 unexpected ways to show your staff that you value them | Aspire-CS | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
I often hear from the leaders I work with about what a great team they have. I have no doubt that you may also feel the same about those who report to you. However, we seem to be hard wired to think in terms of showering money at our employees to show them that we value them (and to keep them from leaving). While money is fine, there are lots of other ways that you can show your best people that you value them.

Career: 25 Incredibly Valuable Things to Be Instead of Leader | Kate Nasser | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

A Salute to the Second Bananas in the Workplace!

 

People who strive for a leadership position are held in higher esteem than those who do not. A second-class message lingers about employees who do not strive to move up the ladder — despite their vast contributions to the end goal.

We can work to replace this misguided culture with communication and action that change the dynamic and truly value the entire team.
The benefits to the organizations and employees abound.

Everything We Think About Employee Engagement is Wrong - Forbes | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

   For years, the business world’s approach to managing employee engagement has been out to lunch.

 

In response to survey results, executives exhort managers to spend even more time with their employees.

What if the lunch is disingenuous, boring, cheesy or even nasty? What if the additional time employees spend with their managers is tortuous and mundane rather than constructive, collaborative and inspirational?

Tell Me a Story -- 8 Tips for Powerful Narratives That Drive Social Impact

Tell Me a Story -- 8 Tips for Powerful Narratives That Drive Social Impact | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Stories Matter


As a social marketer and social entrepreneur, I am highly aware of the use of narrative and framing in our daily lives. From politics to the marketplace, who sets the narrative and how they set it has great power. It impacts who cares about an issue, what they hear, and what they are willing to do.

Recently, everywhere I go, people ask me how to tell a more effective story. Advocates, colleagues, and clients observe that the organizations that achieve policy goals, get transformative grants, or seize the market’s interest are the ones that 1) have the resources to disseminate their story, and 2) just tell the better story. I would argue that the real winners are the organizations that actually manage to tell a story at all.

The Convergence of Information and Storytelling

The Convergence of Information and Storytelling | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

 Everyday our lives and businesses generate vast amounts of data and the rise of cloud computing and the internet has enabled us to store and retrieve this information easily. The challenge has always been to enable people to use data and to communicate simply. There are a few visionaries that have mastered the art of data visualisation like Edward Tufte and Stephen Few. The future depends on the blend of this fusion of information and storytelling.

The great idea spirit seems as unpredictable as the weather. Don’t get me wrong, I agree that idea generation has a mystical side, I just think we have more power to be the catalyst of this spirit than many creatives believe.
