The interaction, trust and camaraderie of your teams can make or break your business.

Cathy Matthews's curator insight, March 21, 9:56 AM

Your business team is like family and should be treated with dignity and respect. Your team, if focused on obtaining a common goal and proud (not to mention excited) to come to work each day, is what makes an organization successful. This is accomplished through defined goals, clear strategy, clear communication, and working well with others. As my dad used to say (a very successful businessman who worked his way to President of his company), there are 3 rules to live by in the business world: 1. Love what you do; 2. Love the people you work with; 3. Love yourself.

Jeremy Barton's curator insight, March 24, 4:56 AM

Employing the right people first time round, what a win.

How to Help an Underperformer

How to Help an Underperformer | Your HR Helpdesk | Scoop.it

Don’t ignore the problem


Too often these issues go unaddressed.  “Most performance problems aren’t dealt with directly,” says Weintraub. “More often, instead of taking action, the manager will transfer the person somewhere else or let him stay put without doing anything.” This is the wrong approach. Never allow underperformance to fester on your team. It’s rare that these situations resolve themselves. It’ll just get worse. You’ll become more and more irritated and that’s going to show and make the person uncomfortable,” says Manzoni. If you have an issue, take steps toward solving it as soon as possible.

It's tempting to delay dealing with under performers, but they rarely improve on their own. This article provides actionable advice that works in the real world.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, June 23, 7:37 PM

As a manager, you can’t accept underperformance. It’s frustrating, time-consuming, and it can demoralize the other people on your team. But what do you do about an employee who isn’t performing up to snuff? How do you help turn around the problematic behavior? And how long do you let it go on before you cut your losses?

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 24, 12:36 PM

The assumption often is that poor performance is  result of some problem with the performer, but it would be wise to examine the circumstances closely because is it a common bias for people to attribute others failures to them and de-emphasize the situation factors that may be contributing.   Compounding this, we as managers often are biased in seeing our own success as the result of our efforts and failures as a result of happenstance and not our shortcomings— making it still harder for us to see how we might contribute to others' poor performance. 

Tony Phillips's curator insight, June 24, 9:25 PM

A great article worth practical ways to improve performance. ALL managers should be coached to do this type of thing.

What The Happiest People Know About Work

What The Happiest People Know About Work | Your HR Helpdesk | Scoop.it

Study, work hard, and you will be successful.

 

This was the mantra repeated by educators throughout my youth. None of them added "be happy" to the success equation.

 

But a growing body of research in positive psychology and neuroscience is demonstrating that happiness is the secret ingredient to success. It turns out, our brains are more engaged, creative, productive, and resilient when in a positive state.

 

All this unhappiness comes with a high price tag to businesses, costing more than $550 billion a year in lost productivity. In his book, Donovan identifies 60 simple steps individuals can take to improve their happiness and get back on the path to success. Here are six of the top things happy workers do:

Doing what you love can make you happy-- finding a way to make money while doing what you love is even better! 

Graeme Reid's curator insight, April 10, 7:55 PM

If you don't enjoy what you do it is very difficult to be successful.  There are ways to re-frame the way that you look at things to help you focus on what is important to you.

Avoiding energy sappers is what led me to retire from teaching. It was not the students and parents. It was the bureaucratic and technocratic nonsense that went on in school which passes itself off as education.

Asking For A Promotion? 6 Things Your Boss Needs To Hear You Say

Asking For A Promotion? 6 Things Your Boss Needs To Hear You Say | Your HR Helpdesk | Scoop.it

With so much uncertainty in the current job market, asking for a promotion can be more stressful than ever. No thoughtful employee wants to come off as overly-ambitious and in certain situations, rocking the boat at the wrong time can create unwanted tension.

 

However, if you’ve determined that now is the time to ask for that raise or promotion, you should plan your opening ahead of time. According to Forbes, many employees are denied promotions because they fail to phrase their requests in an effective manner.

New Research Unlocks the Secret of Employee Recognition

New Research Unlocks the Secret of Employee Recognition | Your HR Helpdesk | Scoop.it

Bersin has completed a comprehensive research project on employee recognition (saying "thank you") and the results are really astounding: organizations that give regular thanks to their employees far out perform those that don't.

 

What their research found was that tenure-based rewards systems have virtually no impact on organizational performance. It turns out that many of these tenure-based rewards programs are really legacy programs from the turn of the century when labor unions forced management to give employees “service awards” and hourly raises for tenure. Most large companies still have these programs today, yet only 58% of employees even know such programs exist. So for the most part they aren’t creating much value.

 

On other hand, our research did find that modern, re-engineered recognition programs can have a huge impact on business performance.

Believe me or not... 

 

Yesterday I've finallized a manual designed to support my view on the future of organizational development for the social economy entities, to which i've given the name of 'Engagement Management', where I've assembled these four tools as the most important any organization should embrace:

 

1. Strategy (to control or to develop?)

2. The importance of Employee RECOGNITION

3. Team development meetings using the principle of fostering participation and creativity

4. Self-assessment as the best way to allow indivividual, thus groupal, growth

Did it also sound to you as if today's scoop.it articles I've received were not by chance these particular ones I'm now sharing?
