The Leader as Storyteller: 10 Reasons It Makes a Better Business Connection

The Leader as Storyteller: 10 Reasons It Makes a Better Business Connection | Talented HR | Scoop.it
Every great leader is a great storyteller.” — Howard Gardner, Harvard psychologist

I’ve had the opportunity to deliver a presentation to Procter & Gamble’s then-CEO A. G. Lafley four or five times in the decade he held that position. The first time was unforgettable. That day I learned a valuable lesson — the hard way — about how not to present to the CEO.

I’d been given 20 minutes on the agenda of the Executive Global Leadership Council meeting. This group included the CEO and a dozen or so of the top officials in the company. They met weekly in a special room on P&G’s executive floor designed just for this group. It’s a perfectly round room with modern features, centered on a perfectly round table. Even the doors are curved so as not to stray from the round motif.

Kim Kardashian Talks Social Media: Loves Instagram, Twitter Is Fun, Facebook For Branding

Kim Kardashian Talks Social Media: Loves Instagram, Twitter Is Fun, Facebook For Branding | Talented HR | Scoop.it

Talking today at Webfest Global, Kim Kardashian expressed love for Instagram, found Twitter fun, saw Facebook as a great brand builder and, despite having emailed Google CEO Eric Schmidt earlier in the day, made no mention of Google+.

These and other thoughts she shared on business and social media are in my live blog below. I’ll highlight a few of the top items that stood out for me.

By the way, there are no pictures allowed, so what you see above from my program, that’s it. Second, I’m the one person in the world who barely knows who Kim Kardashian is. You’ll see that reflected in some of the live blogging :)

Kim On Eric Schmidt

She started off saying she’d emailed Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt shortly before coming to speak and knows him pretty well. Schmidt told her to say hello to the Googlers he expected would be in the audience.

Despite the Google connection, Kim never mentioned Google+ as a social network she uses. She does have a verified profile there but hasn’t posted since the middle of last year.

Kim On Blogging

“I really started with my blog before there was Twitter,” she said, saying she loves “the interaction with her fans” Her blog was like a visual diary. Even after she got into social media, she kept it going because “it was like my own little Twitter, my community”

Kim On Twitter

When it came along, it provided even easier access to her fans. She was happy with a Forbes article recently found that despite some celebrities having more followers, she was the person with the most engagement.

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, February 26, 2013 8:32 AM

Excerpt from the 2012 Deloitte The Talent Paradox report on 'Generational Differences':

"Different generations have different goals, expectations and desires—and employers should tailor their retention plans to satisfy them. Figure 2 reflects what executives think each generation wants and what each generation is really looking for. Coming out of the recession, the foremost thing that employees are looking for are promotions followed by additional financial incentives for Millennials and Generation X and support and recognition from managers for Baby Boomers."

High Potentials vs. High Performers: A Manager's Guide to Identify, Assess and Develop

High Potentials vs. High Performers: A Manager's Guide to Identify, Assess and Develop | Talented HR | Scoop.it

Mistaking a high-performing employee for a high-potential employee can be costly. As Vincent van de Belt, a consultant at Cubiks, points out, “If an organization is not able to distinguish between performance and potential, it will have difficulty identifying talent.”

This happens all the time. A top-performing sales rep is promoted to sales manager, and struggles to transition from killing his sales goals to helping a team of junior reps kill theirs. Meanwhile, the junior rep whose hard work has facilitated the success of sales teams for years feels undervalued, and decides it’s time to start looking for growth opportunities elsewhere. Both scenarios hurt morale and drive turnover.

Performance and potential are not mutually exclusive. Van de Belt suggests that “people always possess a combination of both.”

But a manager who understands the difference will be more effective in engaging and retaining employees who exemplify aptitude in one or both. To that end, this article outlines strategies any manager can apply to identify, assess, and develop high potentials and high performers.

How to Develop a Next-Generation HR Portal

How to Develop a Next-Generation HR Portal | Talented HR | Scoop.it

Talent Management magazine

John @TalentedHR's insight:

n organizations around the globe, the fossilized remains of a once-painstaking effort by human resources to improve service delivery by creating a single online destination — an intranet, where all employees could have their needs met — litter corporate Web servers.

The problem wasn’t that creating one place for users to find everything HR-related was a bad idea; it was that HR didn’t understand how to create a valuable user experience. In the early days of corporate intranets, the goal was to make things easier for the content provider — in this case HR — not the consumer.

The objective was to centrally manage information and content with the hope that users visited and consumed it. What resulted was outdated information, stale links and redundant or confusing processes.

Some intranet users say they continue down that path because it’s the only way they know how to access certain talent management functions such as opening a job requisition or accessing the performance review system. Others abandon the intranet altogether in favor of direct contact with the HR department. This perpetuates HR’s role in administration, however, and limits opportunities to offer more strategic value.

HR portals offer a way to expand on the idea of delivering HR information to employees with a set of tools designed to deliver services more successfully and keep employees engaged. When used well, HR portals enable the function to be more strategic, improve productivity and increase employee satisfaction.

The Six Habits of a Talent Magnet

The Six Habits of a Talent Magnet | Talented HR | Scoop.it

Talent is the make-or-break issue for business success. Few great entrepreneurs and CEOs of our acquaintance would contest that statement. If you are a leader who's serious about improving your capacity to attract the best talent, you need to develop the habits of a true talent magnet. From our research and experience with numerous CEOs and entrepreneurs, we've identified six: 1. Get to know the most talented individuals early on, when you don't need them. Can you name the best one or two people for each of the critical positions in your industry? If you can't, start by attending industry meetings and asking the right questions. If at all possible, begin socializing with the best individuals across particular disciplines. Who are they really as people, versus what they do for a living? What interests them, excites them, drives them? The very best time to get to know people is when you don't need to hire them now. If you don't establish a relationship first, chances are you will end up paying top dollar to get them — and even if they sign up, you may have trouble retaining them.

2. Create and manage the right expectations. Most entrepreneurs and business builders oversell the excitement of their entrepreneurial opportunity and/or the institution, and undersell themselves. The most talented people are attracted to leaders whom they can trust and role models they want to emulate. Thus, ask yourself the question: "Why would any real talent want to work for me?..."

Talent Management in one Unified Solution - Forbes

Talent Management in one Unified Solution - Forbes | Talented HR | Scoop.it
Employees make the difference, HR makes it so

You’ve probably heard the saying: “An organization is only as great as its employees.” It’s a simple concept really, and yet many organizations don’t actually have the tools in place to effectively attract the right talent and then grow that talent over time. Sure, they might have the point solutions to handle individual business needs, but overall the IT landscape is disparate; HR efficiency is severely limited; and, in many cases, it’s key talent management processes that suffer.

This is where having a single, unified HR system is critical. With a single system, HR organizations can gain the single platform they need for talent management and avoid the hardships of trying to bring data sources together. But these days having a single system still isn’t enough. The changing expectations of prospective employees have added considerable new challenges. New hires, for example, have now come to expect greater visibility into the hiring process and responsiveness from hiring managers. Providing this experience can often be the first impression you leave a prospect; and doing it well can be the single act that keeps him or her interested in your company...
