Breaks Are Good For Business

Breaks Are Good For Business | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
Leadership- you must talk the walk. There are big benefits to structured breaks. Employees refresh and recharge, they're more creative, focussed & engaged.

Susan Taylor's curator insight, July 8, 9:07 PM

As a leader, what do you do to balance work and rest breaks, and how do you support your employees to do the same?


With all of the documentation out there about the benefits of downtime, many senior leaders don't change any of their practices.  We know that taking breaks is good for business; yet we still resist.  Why?


Peter McKelvie offers us this challenge:  "Take a risk and encourage some down time. See what happens. Take a bit for yourself while you’re at it".  Model to your team that taking breaks are not only acceptable; but desirable.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 11, 12:29 PM

Breaks are healthy. It is actually on breaks from "real work" that many breakthroughs happen. Students benefit from these when done well.

I remember back in the 1990's when I became a project manager. I especially remember my first project management course, in 1991, where the instructor dramatically announced that more than 50% of projects fail.

And today, in 2014, not much has changed. CIO magazine reports that the failure rate remains about the same.

From Human Resources to Human Results | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Why are we stuck in the way we've always done it with regard to Human Resources? Let's be serious - we all know that HR isn't exactly the highest priority in our business. All too often HR is brushed aside as an overhead function that's mostly about administering and organizing. A necessary evil.

It's time for that paradigm to shift. Big Time.

Leadership is a process of social influence: it is concerned with the traits, styles, and behaviours of individuals that causes others to follow them. Management is the act of getting people together to accomplish desired goals. Or to put it really simply, we all need to be leaders and managers. We need to be able to influence others through our ideas, words, and actions. We also need to be able to get work done through others on a day-to-day basis.

I agree leadership is a collaborative endeavor more than a competitive one, but let's not say we cannot learn from other mistakes as well as our own. Let's not say that coming up with better ways to do what others have done is not beneficial. It our job as leaders to do the best we can to help our organizations' achieve their purposes; it is rarely, if ever true that our purpose is solely defeating other organizations.

It is interesting that we use the words quite interchangeably without thinking about context. Several months ago in preparing a presentation I discovered collaboration always has a negative meaning about selling out. The way we approach collaboration is that someone decides what the goals are and everyone else accepts it.

Tom Hood's curator insight, July 4, 8:54 AM

Having just finished our fifth class of Leadership Academy for our emerging CPA leaders, this article resonated  with me. While the notion of EQ as a critical leadership quality is on point, I think it must be in the context of how leadership is changing in this hyper-connected, rapidly changing world. When we asked our emerging leaders to compare and contrast leadership across the ages, they identified the common traits we all know - vision, communication, passion, and authority. Yet when looking at the current state, they added words like collaborative, transparent, more communication,.

 

These skills include the ability to engage and inspire followers to a shared vision and action. The other critical piece is to 'know themselves' in a way they can be that authentic leader with their own unique style rather than trying to fit some standard leadership model that forces them to change. We do this with Strengths-Finders and Values to help them become self-aware.

 

Thus I see the idea of EQ to include specific group dynamics, collaboration, listening, and making your thinking visible to others. These skills can be taught and developed and we are seeing emerging leaders  able to apply these as they grow into the kind of future leaders we will need.

Robin Martin's curator insight, July 4, 1:51 PM

Absolutely...however, students need to have the "grit'" and tenacity to survive as well as to thrive in this world. Some, if not most, of us Boomers learned this during our lifetimes, most likely the "hard way," so to speak.

 

Just being able to focus in the digital world for younger people (mainly younger children) has to be a challenge in itself! While the digital age is perfect for them to learn as quickly as their brains are moving, somewhere there has to be a delicate "balance" to keep them grounded. 

 

Yes, we do need to align the skill sets needed to survive and become great leaders with what we're teaching young children. I predict an education overhaul in the very near future!

 David Zweig, a lecturer and journalist who has written for the Atlantic, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal, lovingly calls these people “Invisibles”—and in his fascinating new book, Invisibles: The Power of Anonymous Work in an Age of Relentless Self-Promotion (Portfolio Hardcover, 2014), he lays out a strong case for their importance in making the world go around.

Zweig recently spoke with strategy+business about the nature of the Invisibles, and why, despite their personal modesty, even shyness, they so often make such effective leaders.

What Do We Mean By New Leadership? | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

I am a great fan of curation and use Scoop-it on a regular basis to bring together and publish articles and blogs on key areas of interest. One of my curates is called “New Leadership” and a couple of weeks ago one of my Twitter followers asked me what I meant by that. It was a fair question and following the death last year of Margaret Thatcher, it was one which got me thinking about the way that our concept of leadership has changed over the last couple of decades.

A great article from Roger Francis. 

 

(From the article): Finally, I think that people’s expectations have changed dramatically over the last 30 years. The global skills shortage, means that companies can no longer pay lip service to the hackneyed saying “Our people are our most important resource”. Talent retention and development at all levels are now a critical component of any decent strategic plan and this generation of workers will not accept the old, directional styles of leadership. They expect to be consulted and involved in decision-making and empowered to take genuine responsibility – not just simply given a job of work to do. Moreover, if they don’t get what they want, they simply leave. Loyalty is no longer a given.

donhornsby's curator insight, July 7, 8:42 AM

(From the article): The foundation of leading teams is trust. To that extent leaders of leading teams are authentic and real, no masks, no politics. They connect personally with the team members and create opportunities for them to get to know each other informally also. Creating common shared experiences and fostering collaboration continues to build the level of trust in the team.

 

Accountability and reliability solidifies the trust. No double standards. The leader must be a shining example of that. They must always keep their promises and do what they say they are going to do. People are much more likely to bring their best to work when they trust their leader.
