donhornsby's curator insight, August 21, 2014 11:01 AM

(From the article): Getting a relationship with a coworker back on track may require that you put your ego away. “We often get stuck in our heads about who’s wrong and who’s right. And when you’re hooked on the idea that you’re right, you can’t start to repair the relationship because the issue of who’s at fault becomes a distraction,” says David. To satisfy this need to be right while not letting it affect how you interact with the person, David suggests “imagining the other person with a big, fat sticker on his back that says, ‘I’m wrong.’” Then you can just focus on moving the relationship forward.

The Portable Leader Is the New “Organization Man”

The Portable Leader Is the New “Organization Man” | WorkLife | Scoop.it
Talented people flock to institutions that make it, regarding costs such as tuition fees, long hours, or foregone earnings as investments in their future. But “transformation” remains a nebulous promise at best, and corporate drivel at worst. Who gets transformed, into what, and how? What good is it for people and their organizations?

How to Know if You're an Empath

Empaths are highly sensitive, finely tuned instruments when it comes to emotions. They feel everything, sometimes to an extreme, and are less apt to intellectualize feelings. Intuition is the filter through which they experience the world.

When to Stay Inside Your Comfort Zone

Comfort zones are hard to leave, and for good reason. They’re often places where we feel most secure and natural, and sometimes they are where we can do our best and most fulfilling work. But don’t confuse bravery with sensibility. Stretching your comfort zone when you’re not ready — or don’t need to — can add more stress than skill.

Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are

Can you identify the one person, event, or influence that made you who you are as a leader and a person? Over the past 10 years, I’ve put that question to one hundred of the eminent people I represented as chairman of the Washington Speakers Bureau: Madeleine Albright, Tom Brokaw, Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw, Condoleezza Rice, and many others. I was curious to find out what they felt were the turning points in their lives — the defining moments and influences from which they draw motivation and inspiration.

How to Create an Exponential Mindset

How to Create an Exponential Mindset | WorkLife | Scoop.it

Digital business models require a shift from incremental to exponential. At the start, it takes vision and a leap of faith to commit to the unknown. In the early days, it takes courage and patience to build the foundation for growth even when results aren’t yet apparent. When growth kicks in, agility comes from empowering others and letting go without losing control.

Liberation and Self-Organization for Social Change and Life

Liberation and Self-Organization for Social Change and Life | WorkLife | Scoop.it

Once again, I’ve been re-reading Niels Pfleaging’s short book Organize for Complexity (and eager for the release of the English version of Complexitools) amidst the growing demand we are hearing at IISC from people who want to liberate their organizations and themselves to be able to intelligently respond to change and to come back to life! Here’s the gist – as things shift more, and more rapidly, some people’s inclination may be to try to exert greater control or dig in to what is familiar, but does not work. The more one does so, the worse things can get.

The rising tide of economic nationalism has caused many observers to announce that globalization is not just in retreat, but near death. To be sure, the Brexit vote and the election of Donald Trump (as well as the popularity of various far-right European politicians) raise important questions about the future of free trade. But the future health of the multinational corporation is not in doubt.  Their outlook is good – but MNCs will need to adapt to some new realities.

When Large Companies Are Better at Entrepreneurship than Startups

Big companies starting businesses from scratch has become a big deal. In many cases, these volatile big bets create bigger movements, up and down, in the stock price of a company than its (more stable) core business. But what are their odds of success — and how do those odds compare to start-ups?

We Need to Expand Our Definition of Entrepreneurship

The great entrepreneurs of the last century — folks like Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, and Thomas Edison — spawned huge companies that were designed around a model of scalable efficiency. In that model the job of workers was to fit into their roles and perform tightly specified and standardized tasks in a highly reliable and predictable way. The employee society was born. Enormous wealth was created for the entrepreneurs who pioneered this way of organizing business, and enormous value was delivered to the marketplace. And most of us became employees.

What We Miss When We Judge a Decision by the Outcome

When people are judging the quality of leaders’ decisions, they tend to focus much more on outcomes than intentions. For example, they judge hiring decisions not on the basis of whether the decision was made thoughtfully or fairly but on whether the new employee performs well. They judge the quality of a product decision on whether the product was well received in the market, rather than the quality of the process that led to the decision in the first place. As it turns out, this tendency affects virtually all human beings. When evaluating others’ actions, most people focus more on the outcome of decisions than on intentions, a phenomenon that psychologists call outcome bias.

Few Millennials Are Engaged at Work | WorkLife | Scoop.it

Much of what matters to organizations -- from performance to customer service to stock prices -- hinges on a deep understanding of how their millennial employees live and work. That's because millennials -- the youngest of whom are college-aged -- will grow to dominate the workplace. Millennial workers currently make up 38% of the U.S. workforce. Some estimate that they will make up as much as 75% of it by 2025.
