Can a Strengths Coaching Approach Be Damaging?

Can a Strengths Coaching Approach Be Damaging? | Human Resources | Scoop.it
When it comes to using a coach to improve your performance at work, would you rather they focus on building your strengths or fixing your weaknesses? As the executive coaching industry continues to boom, so too has a strengths-focused approach to improving your performance on the job. And while focusing on your strengths has been found to have all sorts of benefits, could ignoring your weaknesses come at a cost? 

For decades researchers have been advocating that people’s greatest areas of growth at work lie in developing their strengths. And as a growing body of evidence has found that using your strengths can help you to improve your creativity, productivity and resilience at work, strength-focused coaching has become increasingly popular.

But could focusing on your strengths be damaging to your career? 

Via Steve Krogull
Andrea Ross's insight:

This is an interesting article, there is definitely a trend towards more strength based coaching in the corporate world currently.  I personally prefer the Hogan Assessments when coaching executives. The HPI assessment tool that focuses on the "Bright Side of Personality" measures qualities that describe how individuals relate to others when they are at their best, the HDS "Dark Side of Personality measures qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and can disrupt relationships, damage reputations and de-rail peoples' chance of success. Using both tools throughout a coaching process is a good way of seeing both the Bright and Dark side of a person. What do all my fellow executive coaches prefer to use and why?

CEO Succession Planning in a Family Business

CEO Succession Planning in a Family Business | Human Resources | Scoop.it
Warburtons is a traditional family-owned business. Run by the Warburton family since it was set up as a bakery in the English town of Bolton in 1876, it is now the largest bakery in the U.K., with 12 bakeries, 14 depots, and 4,500 employees. Although its core product is still bread — accounting for about 70 percent of sales in a country that is the world’s largest per capita consumer of sandwiches — the company has expanded its offerings to bagels, crumpets, potato cakes, and gluten-free products. In the decade up to 2015, Warburtons spent £400 million (US$555 million) on new technology and upgrading factories — and the company continues investing.

Management is now in the hands of fifth-generation family member Jonathan Warburton and his cousins Ross and Brett. That is a remarkable feat, because as U.S. research has shown, only about 30 percent of family companies make it to the second generation. The transition from the previous generation to the current team of Warburton family managers offers useful lessons for other family-owned businesses at a time when business models face the twin challenges of disruption and rapidly evolving shifts in consumer behavior. Warburton recently sat down with strategy+business to talk about succession planning, leveling the playing field to attract talent, and investing for the future.

Older workers want to change the world: Culture Amp study

Older workers want to change the world: Culture Amp study | Human Resources | Scoop.it
Older workers may not be as jaded as you might think.

New data provided to Business Insider from employee feedback platform Culture Amp found that employees between the ages of 55-64 are more likely than their younger counterparts to want a job that does good in the world.

Culture Amp, which is used by Airbnb, Lyft, and a number of prominent tech companies, gives employees a platform to give feedback to employers. The startup has raised $36.3 million in venture capital funding since it was founded in 2011.

Since the company has a wide user base, CEO Didier Elzinga tells Business Insider that he wanted to see if he could debunk some of the prevailing narratives about Millennial workers — especially the idea that younger workers want more autonomy and purpose than older ones. 

"It certainly surprised me," Elzinga said. "It's not just young people that want to make a difference in the world, it's us old fuddy duddies as well."

If Collaboration Makes Us Better, Why Aren't More Leaders Doing It? - Peter DeWitt's Finding Common Ground - Education Week | Human Resources | Scoop.it
What puts leaders at risk of failure is that too many of them believe they have to be experts at every single one of those responsibilities. After all, they were hired to lead? This is where we need to foster a change in mindset, because no one can meet all of the demands of leadership by themselves. And no one, needs to be an expert at everything. What leaders need is the belief that they can meet those demands by working collaboratively with their staff and school community.

This Is How To Make A Team Brainstorming Session Effective

This Is How To Make A Team Brainstorming Session Effective | Human Resources | Scoop.it

If you want to hold brainstorms that unearth better, more creative ideas, it all starts with the number of people in the room.

 

That’s my first tip for you: Follow the “pizza rule” for brainstorming. If you’re unfamiliar with the “pizza rule,” it’s the idea that if you have more people in a room than you could feed with a pizza, there are too many people in that room to hold a productive meeting.

 

The same rule goes for a brainstorming session: If you’ve got a dozen people sitting around a table, expect a really long list of truly mediocre ideas.

 

So, what else can you do other than bribe a group of two to six people with pizza to unearth good ideas? So glad you asked.

Big Changes Are Coming to Talent Acquisition in 2018. Here's What You Need to Know

Big Changes Are Coming to Talent Acquisition in 2018. Here's What You Need to Know | Human Resources | Scoop.it

2017 was an exciting year for talent acquisition. We prepared for Generation Z. Leaders realized how critical it is to recruit

female talent. Organizations focused on offering attractive benefits that supported employee development and even infertility.

 

With all that progress, it'd be a shame to take two steps back in 2018. Dive into the new trends before it's too late.

 

This is what you need to concentrate on when hiring in 2018:

1. Focus on adaptability.

If we learned anything in 2017, it's that corporate stability is elusive. One week your company is leading the industry, the next the CEO is facing a series of scandals. If your workforce can't thrive in changing conditions, they won't achieve long-term success.

 

Andreas Pettersson is the chief product officer of the video cloud security company Arcus. The company is currently in the middle of a big hiring push, and they're approaching talent acquisition in a new way.

 

Pettersson pointed out that in the past, organizations looked for employees who adhered to a rigid plan. That is no longer the case.

"For today's most agile teams, a set plan is no longer a feasible or successful strategy for product development," he said. "In 2018, rather than technical skills defining the gold standard recruit, ideal candidates will fit seamlessly into the team, thrive in an empowered environment, and focus on solving the problem at hand."

 

This will be true for all industries, not just tech. Assemble a team that can keep up with the changing business environment. Look for candidates who have a wide range of experiences.

 

Check out LinkedIn and reach out to candidates who have successfully transitioned from one industry to another. This is one sign that they are adaptable.

2. Know your ABCs: AI, blockchain, and chatbots.

We've been talking about artificial intelligence for years. But we're just starting to see useful applications when it comes to hiring. Newer software saves hiring managers countless hours by pre-screening candidates.

 

Brian Christman is the vice president of people at the digital freight marketplace Transfix. He also has over a decade of experience helping companies like Etsy and SiriusXM scale.

 

"By leveraging big data and machine learning, recruiters are able to cast wider nets," said Christman. "They become more efficient in building high-quality pipelines, and ultimately can better predict the skills and attributes of prospective candidates that will have the highest probability of success."

 

Find an AI tool that will grow with your company. For example, Mosaictrack uses technology similar to IB's Watson to read through resumes like a human. Over time, it becomes more attuned to the skills and cultural factors you need. This leaves hiring managers more time to develop relationships with top talent.

 

Blockchain technology is another tool that will be gaining momentum this year. It was developed for exchanging bitcoin, but now there are wider applications.

 

Blockchain allows for a faster interaction with information by two or more parties. Everyone has the most up-to-date information, no matter how many people are using it.

 

Imagine how that could simplify team hiring. Instead of scrolling through an endless chain of messages to see what each person thought of a candidate, use blockchain technology. This will assure that each individual can easily add their own opinions and see those of everyone else.

 

Finally, chatbots are beginning to make a big impact. The technology saves hiring managers from wasting time on candidates who are a bad fit.

 

Put a chatbot on your company career page. Then potential candidates can interact with it and ask questions. Bringing things full circle, the chatbot can then deliver that communication to AI software. If there are signs that this is a strong candidate, you can make direct contact with them.

3. Make recruitment and marketing BFFs.

Google for Jobs, which debuted in 2017, will impact how organizations craft job listings in the coming year.

 

"Now recruiters have to think about how they are marketing their openings, which keywords you use, the schema behind how you set it up and ultimately what specific personas they want to attract," said Teri Calderon, executive vice president of human resources at technician staffing firm Field Nation.

 

Chances are your hiring team has no idea how to optimize a job posting so it will appear on the first page of Google. Offer training that explains to them why this is important. Provide a list of researched keywords that your ideal candidates will be searching for. This will ensure that the best talent applies with your company first.

A Psychotherapist Shares How to Become an Effective Listener

A Psychotherapist Shares How to Become an Effective Listener | Human Resources | Scoop.it
How many times have you thought to yourself "He just doesn't get it" or "I don't feel my supervisor understands me," or "She talks too much"? With all these, effective listening could actually make a huge difference. Whether it's a partner, supervisor, or friend--if this person zips their lips and actively listens, you'll feel better understood.

Think of someone who makes you feel comfortable and relaxed no matter how chaotic your life may be. Someone who makes you feel that all is right with the world even if it may be crashing down in front of you. When you need comfort, who do you turn to? My guess is whoever this person; he or she possesses one vitally important trait: good listening skills. Being a good listener can be the difference that makes the difference in so many areas in life. This is especially true in business. I see it time and time again with my business coaching clients. They come in terrible listeners and leave having learned to actively listen and better understand their colleagues. This ultimately translates into better business.

Via Steve Krogull
Andrea Ross's insight:

Active Listening Skills - we tend to overlook this one and it's probably one of the most critical competencies to possess. When someone really listens and shows you through their behaviours they are actually listening it can really light up your day. Make a difference today with the people around you and "really listen" you'll be amazed the impact it has on your relationships. Good Luck.

Andrea Ross's curator insight, October 9, 2017 8:32 PM

We really underestimate listening skills don't we? But when we have been on the other end of someone really listening to us the impact it has on us is quite incredible. I covered this with a fabulous recruitment firm last week and this is a nice little follow up for everyone to enjoy. It takes a conscious effort to show someone and be an active listener - go on give it a go and see how it impacts your relationships.

To Be a Great Leader, You Have to Learn How to Delegate Well

To Be a Great Leader, You Have to Learn How to Delegate Well | Human Resources | Scoop.it

One of the most difficult transitions for leaders to make is the shift from doing to leading. As a new manager you can get away with holding on to work. Peers and bosses may even admire your willingness to keep “rolling up your sleeves” to execute tactical assignments. But as your responsibilities become more complex, the difference between an effective leader and a super-sized individual contributor with a leader’s title is painfully evident.

 

In the short term you may have the stamina to get up earlier, stay later, and out-work the demands you face. But the inverse equation of shrinking resources and increasing demands will eventually catch up to you, and at that point how you involve others sets the ceiling of your leadership impact. The upper limit of what’s possible will increase only with each collaborator you empower to contribute their best work to your shared priorities. Likewise, your power decreases with every initiative you unnecessarily hold on to.


Via The Learning Factor, Ricard Lloria

Moving from individual contributor to a manager is tricky and delegating I believe is the hardest part.

If we want to succeed in life or in business, we cannot do this with any depth or longevity if we’re not empathic.

 

Empathy is what gives life meaning.

It allows us to be open, and to tolerate points of view that differ greatly from our own. When we are empathic towards others, we are better equipped to understand, soothe, communicate, bond and develop long-lasting successful connections.

 

At its base, success is a function of trusting, dependable and dynamic relationships.

  • 1. They recognize feelings.
    2. They have an ethical identity.
    3. They always consider the needs of others.
  • 4. They have a moral intention.
  • 5. They're calm.
  • 6. They're kind.
  • 7. They are always thinking “us.”
  • 8. They take risks for the team.
  • 9. They have a strong desire to make a difference.

Employee development: Why does it continue to fall short?

Employee development: Why does it continue to fall short? | Human Resources | Scoop.it

“Are employees getting what they need from their employers to when it comes to learning and performance management?” This question was the starting point to uncover the gaps between perception and reality across different aspects of talent management. The results were interesting across the board, particularly those around employee learning and development.

Andrea Ross's insight:

When it comes to learning there is a definite increase locally on organisations opting for a blend of both internal and external providers to bridge any learning gaps for their employees.  This is a win/win outcome for both the employee and the employer and a definite value proposition to anyone looking at joining that organisation. Nice little article for those within the HR field.

Andrea Ross's insight:

From time to time we have to take the time to read such articles as a bit of a refresher. We know what we need to do but sometimes we just get swept in the moment and can become distracted and not on track with the goals we have set ourselves. I've always got a notepad at hand to jot down ideas or even record them into my phone (so if you see a crazy woman talking to herself in the car - sorry that's me). Have a great week ahead.
