www.inc.com provide us with some useful ideas here about what 'really good' leaders to at work.  I've been thinking about the strategies offered; 1. giving feedback 2. regular team planning sessions 3. conducting stay interviews 4. recognition & appreciation 5. freedom to make decisions 6. allowing people to take on new responsibilities 7. open-door policy.  All of these rely on the fundamentally critical technical skill of being able to give and receive feedback and the heart-connected qualities that allow people to thrive because you want them to do their best.  For me, really good leaders empower people to succeed.  Allowing freedom is great, but to do this without building trust and sound relationships first, could be an action taken too soon. Interesting topic!

Job Satisfaction Hits All Time High. Here's Why

Job Satisfaction Hits All Time High. Here's Why | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

88 percent of employees who participated in the 2016 SHRM Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement Survey, indicated that they were satisfied with their current job. This marks the highest level of satisfaction over the past ten years.


Although there are many reasons that contributed to this statistic, "respectful treatment of employees at all levels" was at the top of the list for the second year in a row. It even beat out major players like pay, benefits and job security. (Did anyone else start singing a little Aretha Franklin?)

Seems to contradict Gallup Data.  The issue is that we are suffering from survey fatigue and data blindness.

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Teddy Roosevelt did it. Harry Truman did it. Want to be an outstanding leader? Keep a leadership journal. As part of my executive coaching work, one of the most effective tools I recommend that powers up the coaching process is a leadership journal.  The exercise of leadership is not unlike a sport you play. When you review your actions in the field you learn what worked, what didn’t, and adjust along the way. Leadership guru Peter Drucker said: “ Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. ”

Pensez-vous que vous faites le type d'argent que vous méritez? Êtes-vous fatigué de travailler pour autre chose? Voulez-vous prendre une pause? Vous voyez, la crise mondiale est loin d'être terminée. Emplois de nos jours ne sont plus en sécurité. Et la plupart des emplois juste assez payer pour survivre. Oui, mon ami, il est temps de cesser de faire ce que vous faites ... ... et vérifier comment vous pouvez faire le premier pas à la liberté financière que vous avez toujours rêvé de: http://esselte974.fr/your-online-store-free-and-fast-2/

I think this is an underused tool in many professions. Moreover, we do not journal about what we experience and how we feel about those experiences. We want to shape the world without reshaping ourselves.

What Job Does HR Really Do?

What Job Does HR Really Do? | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

With just one exception, every department in your organization has a razor-sharp focus: Sales sells stuff. Marketing finds and keeps customers. Finance makes money. Operations achieves efficiencies.

 

 

And human resources . . . . . . What does HR do, exactly? Scout and hire talent? Not always. Recruiting often falls to the managers who best understand the shifting needs of their teams.

 

 

How about training and development? Nah. Serious organisations bring in a dedicated team for that.

What if you could reimagine your HR department not as a function of what needs to get done but as a means to achieve your company's strategic plan?

Does your organization need the HR Department?


Can (and should) the HR department's role be redefined?


Which functions, in your opinion, must be handled by an HR Department and which HR-related functions would be better handled in other departments?
