Chad Manske's curator insight, September 6, 2013 3:46 PM

Strategic planning seems to be an undervalued, yet critical, function in today's work environment.  The statistic in this piece, that "according to Chief Executive Magazine, seven out of 10 leaders are not strategic," does not surprise me.  First, there is a paucity of executive education in this are that business schools should be eager to teach.  It is not easy work...frankly, it's very HARD work, yet necessary for the viability and long-term potential of any organization.  In this piece, the author covers the Six Elements of Strategic Thinking including the ability to: anticipate, challenge, interpret, decide, align and learn. While each of these elements has received isolated attention, they become significant in entirely new ways when examined in the context of one comprehensive framework.

I don't necessarily disagree with this piece, however, there is more than meets the eye.  The cliche, 'never judge a book by its cover' is appropo here.  Get beyond the 'look' and focus on the substance, especially in well-established working environments

Mike Doherty's curator insight, September 6, 2013 7:40 AM

Lack of Goals: Sometimes, in our lives and in our career, we feel that we have "hit the ceiling."  We feel that  there is no where to go further. Our lives have reached a full-stop.  Yes. It is true that this does happen. But , to succeed, we have to sense this before we reach the stage when we think that we cannot progress further and take positive steps on the next part of our lives and career.  We should have a clear vision where we want to go.  It is perfectly fine to make changes to your goals when the need arises, to think about altering your course. We can always have a list of excuses, but to succeed, we need clarity of thoughts, self discipline and a sense of self worth.

Many of you know my insatiable appetite for reading.  At certain stretches in my career I have read so much I sometimes have forgotten what I've read, but when reminded of what I've read I can remember and recall a lot of detail from a specific book.  Why does this matter and why should you care?  Reading widely and out of your area of expertise naturally forces you into a mode of "comparative familiarity" where you try to relate what you've read to your current job, life etc.  You may even try to apply some of the material you've come across to the challenges you face at home and work.  Lastly, reading widely and often contributes to enhancing your problem solving skill set--a skill we all need to keep sharp in the course of our work and other activities

Carol Sherriff's curator insight, September 7, 2013 11:36 AM

I like the simplicity of the model suggested - prompts thought - but on reflection it is to simplistic. People are differently motivated within each of the four headings. I tend to use Archetypes or NLP frames of reference when working with a group on motivation/

Bryce Wettstein's curator insight, September 9, 2013 12:08 AM

"Management is the opportunity to help people become better people. Practiced that way, it's a magnificent profession." - Professor Clay Christensen

 

I think this quote is an excellent supplement to the article. The article talks about four different emotional drivers that motivate employees, and how their morale affects their overall performance. If a manager is able to satisfy these emotional drivers, it develops positive employee engagement in the workplace.

 

This is a great example of the behavioral approach to management, which stresses group dynamic and leadership, social needs as primary motivating factors, and focuses more on the human side of an organization.

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, July 5, 2014 9:32 PM


Now, how can the principles of Behavioral Economics be employed in the workplace in order to optimize the attainment of the four emotional drivers?

 

For example, studies have shown that sharing unique, or even risky activities can considerably enhance bonding and teamwork. This has been shown to be true whether between lovers (or prospective lovers), colleagues, or both (although that last one is purely my own speculation!).

 

How can Behavioral Economics inform us on the attainment of the other three emotional drivers?
