Anne Egros's curator insight, September 27, 2013 4:43 PM

Our thoughts trigger emotions and feeling that impact our behavior. If you want people in organizations to behave in a certain way, you need to communicate at the emotional level.


Understanding intrinsic motivation, needs and values of individuals is key for leaders to adapt their leadership style, find common purpose to inspire employees, elicit enthusiasm and foster creativity.

The Learning Factor's curator insight, September 25, 2013 7:56 PM

Our workplaces are shifting from hierarchies to networks. Hyperlinks have subverted hierarchy. Everyone is connected. In many hierarchical organisations, workers are more connected when they go home than when they’re at work. This is a sure sign of the obsolescence of our older management control systems and why becoming a social business is so important today.

Living and working in non-hierarchical networks is our challenge this decade. The effective use of social media, to learn from and with others, is essential for individuals and organizations to be productive in networks. Social learning, simply put, is getting things done in networks.

Yet again the evidence points to the critical role line managers play in delivering an engaged workforce. However good the top line strategies and processes, they are likely to stand or fall on the quality of managers in the business.

Disappointment Sucks. So, Now What? | Eblin Group | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Yesterday I found what is already one of my all time favorite New Yorker cartoons. I pulled the current issue out of the mailbox, started flipping through it and saw the classic guy on a therapist’s couch. The caption was “I did seize the day. But then it seized me back and used some kind of jujitsu move to flip me on my ass.”

Thinking Inside The Box | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

"A lot of times, we say “we need to think outside the box” of whatever standards have been set by our competition or whatever. As a marketing professional, I’ve constantly tried to operate without boundaries. Out in the open space is where I believed that creative innovation lived. However, during this conference, I recognized that creativity can also flourish within a structure."

Emotional intelligence and/or high IQ | TalentDevelop

Emotional intelligence and/or high IQ | TalentDevelop | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
“Academic intelligence has little to do with emotional life… people with high IQs can be stunningly poor pilots of their private lives.” Daniel Goleman

 

But writer Joanna Fletcher notes that Goleman gives examples of high IQ people “who are not achieving the heights they were destined for” and thinks “his observation that people with high IQ may have low emotional intelligence and therefore lower success is flawed."
