Employee Engagement 101: Does Your Culture Value Humans? | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

“ What’s the distance between your company culture and your brand? Answer: There shouldn’t be any.

Wow, here is a provocative statement. 

 

Our mercantile minds have become so optimized to derive maximum margins that we tend to forget that it all starts with us, ahem, humans.

But why trust me on this. Just google Steve Jobs and/ or Richard Branson, or a myriad of other thinkers about what they have to say.

 

In the beginning there are neurons firing in each or our brains deriving a new idea or insight. Everything else comes later. So, value your humans. And, btw, they are not "resources" they are creative agents of change - if allowed to be.

At top leadership level, making meaning is much more important than giving direction, If more CXOs explored VUCA instead of doing the jobs of their reports, organisations would flourish!

donhornsby's curator insight, February 13, 2015 4:39 PM

(From the article): "Rather than fooling themselves, or us, we should want our leaders to represent the truth, even when it makes their jobs harder," he says. "That is, after all, one of the great missions to which we entrust them: to take the complex information and broad vantage point to which they have access and convey it to the rest of us in a useful way. Doing so represents authentic and courageous leadership, even if it means being less certain."

Interesting study supports that Emotionally Intelligent people make more money.

 

Awareness is the beginning to all change, and emotionally intelligent people not only strive for self mastery -- to understand, manage, and use their strengths...they are aware of how their actions impact people and situations.

 

What are your thoughts?  How can you tell when you a leader is emotionally intelligent?

Here are some of the benefits of a compassionate workplace:

1. POSITIVE EMOTIONS BOOST PRODUCTIVITY


2. POSITIVE WORKPLACE INTERACTIONS IMPROVE EMPLOYEE HEALTH


3. POSITIVE SOCIAL INTERACTIONS AT WORK RESULT IN POSITIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE


4. A COMPASSIONATE WORK CULTURE FOSTERS GREATER LOYALTY


Seppala argues the creation of a compassionate work environment begins with leaders. When leaders act in a self-sacrificing, service-oriented way, she explains, employees are more likely to be helpful and friendly to each other; creating a chain reaction of kindness.

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, January 27, 2015 1:53 AM

Powerful stories are told with conviction and the most powerful are often told on the basis of personal experience. 


Learning to articulate your powerful personal learning experiences as stories will not only help you to reflect on your learning and therefore make it more powerful, but also help you share your learning with others and influence them to take action.  Leadership indeed!

James Hutchison's curator insight, January 28, 2015 11:01 AM

Of course you reach people by telling stories - it's how we make sense out of life - you can give the theory but you have to provide real world examples and that's why we have stories. Stories help us understand life. But if you tell a story to teach a moral I would suggest that unless you live by that story's moral lesson it doesn't matter how many stories you tell - nobody will believe you. Telling a good story is one thing but having integrity is another.

Engaging with them in the classroom and in the hallways to build communication capacity is important. Inspiring staff to take risks is a tricky enterprise - leaders must value this sort of behavior. This means that attempts which result in failure must be cherished, not scrutinized as they often tend to be.

Shedding my natural advantages gave me an interesting career opportunity. After a 15-year career in investment banks, you learn a thing or two about determination, tenacity and endurance. True, the generous benefits help to cushion the associated sacrifices, but they can also shackle you to a purpose that might not be you at all. We’ve all heard plenty of stories about misaligned incentives in investment banks, but not what it means for the individuals.
