The human ingenuity within any organisation are it's greatest competitive advantage. Yet according to the latest statistics, over half of todays workers are disengaged . When leaders are committed and actively working to engage, inspire and embolden – they unleash untapped potential and raise the bar not just on productivity, but on the value their organization contributes to all stakeholders.

Your employees are your brand

In this talk, Mark Burgess brings to our attention how employees, through social media, are changing how companies market to, and engage with, customers and prospects. With the transparency and opportunity for personal connections that social media offers, pushing fabricated, unauthentic sales pitches doesn't work anymore. Instead, we are witnessing the rise of the social employee who creates a win/win proposition by leveraging their personal brands to build trust and increase the digital "surface area" of the brands for which they work. The result is nothing short of a revolution.

Marius Monen's curator insight, July 17, 2014 7:57 AM

Inspiring talk that shows how to achieve synergy between the personal brand of the "social employee" and the corporate brand. This coincides with another trend I see, which is that individuals see themselves less and less as  (lifte time) employees, and more and more as autonomous professionals with a strong personal brand, embedded in a lasting professional community.  In that perspective the employer and his corporate brand are only temporarily relevant to the professional "social employee": the professional will contribute to it with his own personal brand, but the employer and the corporate brand are only passers-by, only relevant for the time that the professional wants to work for the employer.

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, August 7, 2014 12:29 PM

Businesses really need to understand this point and shout it from the mountain tops.  Employees are your brand! Period!  You can have the best product but if your employees make it difficult to purchase or get support, it won't sell, unless it is so unique that there is no competition.  My only comment there is just wait a few minutes!

The 10 Most Important Work Skills in 2020

The 10 Most Important Work Skills in 2020 | Teaching, Coaching, and Adult Learning | Scoop.it

Last week I was sent a link to an interesting infographic on the ten most important work skills in 2020. It is a graphic respresentation of research done by the University of Phoenix and the Institute for the Future (see their PDF report here). What I like about this is that the team that put it together has looked at the significant drivers of change in society and then worked out what work skills will be required to address these. It’s a thought provoking read for parents, educators and businesses alike. Whilst none of the skills listed are really new, the emphasis is on their growing importance. The timeline is only 6 years away anyway, and so the focus was not on new skills but on what is becoming vital for success right now in our workplaces. You can find the infographic here, and a summary of their points below......

As teachers we are course designers. We design a lesson and if we teach face2face we see immediate feedback while teaching. The same feedback is not as apparent online. One question that is being researched looks at what brain research tells us about designing better lessons, and what applies to eLearning typically applies to what happens in our classroom.

(From the article): It’s easy to assume the resistor is simply irrational or difficult. But “there is typically a logical, perfectly reasonable explanation for how the person is behaving,” says Batista. Perhaps, he doesn’t trust you well enough or feels like you don’t appreciate him. “Often coaching can take on a tone of ‘you’re not good enough,’” Su says. It could also be that the employee hasn’t had a good experience with coaching in the past. “She may be thinking: ‘Why bother? I still didn’t get a promotion after trying last time.’ Or ‘it’s never really stopped me before. I’m going to get promoted anyway,’” says Su. You might also see resistance if the person hasn’t bought into the process: “You have to agree on what the blind spot or development opportunity is,” says Su. Batista suggests you ask yourself: Could my actions be contributing to the problem?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 22, 2014 12:08 PM

My experience with coaching in School was that it was thrust upon us. I also watched these coaches contradict themselves. For example, they would tell us that their work with us was one-on-one and would not be shared with School managers without permission. Yet, they turned around and shared. Trust is at the heart of mentoring and coaching. There is also a flow happening in the form of reciprocity when it is relational.

Members or employers who does not perform accordingly must be met and told privately about his/her shortcomings and asked the whys and reasons for such performance. Leaders must be understanding and give a few chances to a certain point for them to improved. It has to be pointed out that there will be just one warning and then subsequent numbers of meetings on the same problem will be officially recorded as infractions as per rules of the company or organization. Leaders must dig into the real reasons behind the poor performance to be able to help each member in improving themselves either by mentoring or be guided by a peer in his work until he/she can perform well.
