Unlocking the transformative potential of storytelling

Unlocking the transformative potential of storytelling | workplace efficiency | Scoop.it

When people connect to political issues through personal stories, they see them in a different way. They don’t just see democracy in the abstract, they see ‘my democracy.’ The transformative potential of storytelling is written into the fabric of our lives.

Absolutely agree that story telling is a very powerful transformation tool. You can make the audience open and awake to the idea of thinking and giving them a food for thought. I love storytelling activities :)

A good list of ways to ensure that you get the recognition that you deserve.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, March 17, 2015 3:06 AM

These seven proven ways are important for us because few of us are ready to speak out in meetings, few of us are ready to take up challenging work, few of us believe about showcasing our achievments and some of us don't take credit for exemplary work. In a world of cut throat competition, one has to speak out for oneself, and one has to step in before a totally unrelated person takes credit to a job done well!

The seven tips to share with us Peter Economy to achieve promotion at work I find very valuable. However I will complementary, and that promotions in real world does not always achieved only with good practice, consider the "dark side (the hidden chart) organizations", then I completed 7 with the following tips: + Identify as measured and rewards people in the organization, in some it is not done a good job but: to be "loyal and obedient" to the boss, being a lame boots, paid to cover up or participate in matters little ethical, strike up a relationship. If you find that your company is rewarded (promoted) for some (or all) of the above reasons, you have to make a decision, quit and find an organization that applies meritocracy, or stick to change the satuo quo or to adapt and use it, IS YOUR DECISION, ARE YOUR VALUES!

How to Help Your Team Bounce Back from Failure

How to Help Your Team Bounce Back from Failure | workplace efficiency | Scoop.it

It’s often harder to lead a team past a failure than it is to help one person. “People are coming into projects with different expectations, perspectives, levels of investment, and different things at stake,” explains Susan David, a founder of the Harvard/McLean Institute of Coaching and author of the HBR article, “Emotional Agility.” “Some people may be very resilient and others might feel more bruised,” Ben Dattner, an organizational psychologist and author of The Blame Game. “All the things that individuals fall prey to — misattribution and rationalization — are compounded on a team and add exponential complexity to the process.” It doesn’t matter whether one person on your team is at fault or if everyone bears some of the responsibility, it’s your job as the manager to help the entire group move on. Here’s how.

What Successful Project Managers Do

What Successful Project Managers Do | workplace efficiency | Scoop.it

Traditional approaches to project management emphasize long-term planning and a focus on stability to manage risk. But today, managers leading complex projects often combine traditional and “agile” methods to give them more flexibility — and better results.

 

In today’s dynamic and competitive world, a project manager’s key challenge is coping with frequent unexpected events. Despite meticulous planning and risk-management processes, a project manager may encounter, on a near-daily basis, such events as the failure of workers to show up at a site, the bankruptcy of a key vendor, a contradiction in the guidelines provided by two engineering consultants or changes in customers’ requirements.

Successful Project Managers are versatile and dynamic in the way in which they achieve their project on time and within budget. 

 

Risk Management skills and knowledge is a vital skill to possess as a Project Manager. Risk can be analysed in more than one form, the most common is risk to people or the workforce. Project Managers must consider risk to people , risk to machinery, risk to the environment, risk to the business.  All areas of risk must be considered and assessed in the planning stages of a project.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 4, 2015 9:32 AM

(From the article): The Visionary


Her strength lies in her ideas and innovations. However, this entrepreneurial approach becomes dangerous when a plan or solution needs to be implemented, and she can’t bring herself to focus on the task at hand. When the time comes to execute her vision, she’s already off onto the next idea, and you’re left to figure things out on your own.

 

How to neutralize a visionary: To best deal with this type, reverse her train of thought. She naturally takes a broad perspective, so be quick to funnel things down into something smaller and more practical. To do so, ask a lot of specific questions that force her to rationally approach the issue and to consider potential obstacles to executing her broad ideas. Don’t refute her ideas directly, or she will feel criticized; instead, focus her attention on what it will take to realistically implement her plan. Oftentimes, your questions will diffuse her plan, and when they don’t, they’ll get her to understand—and commit to—the effort it’s going to take on her part to help make it happen.

Are you Cursed by Competence? | workplace efficiency | Scoop.it
Your competence at your job can be a source of pride for you and the people you work for, or it can be a major hindrance for you. The central question to ponder is "Am I working in a trusting environment or a fearful one?"

Fearful managers don't recognize and praise their most competent employees. They may be threatened by people who find complicated problems easy to untangle and who sail through major projects. Fearful people especially fear what they don't understand.

Why Job Hopping Is Losing Its Negative Stigma

Why Job Hopping Is Losing Its Negative Stigma | workplace efficiency | Scoop.it

Once upon a time, staying in a job for less than a year carried a huge stigma. Job hopping raised a red flag to future employers that you weren’t serious.

Some professionals still believe this. A new survey out from PayScale and Millennial Branding finds that 41% of baby boomers believe that people should stay in their jobs for at least five years before looking for a new role. Another 21% say between four and five years.
